AND ONE MORE . . .WOOF!

How do these things happen? How did I get into the MugRug-making-business? lol. Well, I've made one more for another co-worker of DD's and now I consider myself retired from this activity! No more, none, nada, fini, and dat's it!

But I kinda like this one...Woof! There is no pattern. It's just some strips and odd pieces of blue stitched together 'crazy' fashion with the batting as the foundation so it was quilted as I sewed it. Simple fusible appliques on top finished off with a blanket stitch courtesy of my Janome6500. No binding either... just layer stitch and turn like you would make for a pillow form - the lap seam in back is secured with a narrow strip of fusible. I like how it turned out.
Woof! A MugRug for Crissi
And a coaster:

With a quick little double heart FMQ'd on the back. ;-).  I started adding quilting to these about 8 months ago. They really go through the washer/dryer better.  Now I cut the batting smaller so the seam isn't so bulky. I like it this way. 

Until next time, I hope where ever you are that you have time to sew up something that makes your heart sing! 

Quilty Hugs,
