About 8 years ago I saw a pattern for this mug quilt, done in very muted colours and before I really started quilting - and I thought - I want to do that. Ta da: it's finished!!
I used lots of scrappy bits of fabric and it is a lovely bright quilt
Its all hand quilted in different colours to try and contrast with the material
The back of the quilt is a duvet cover that I picked up at a charity shop for a couple of quid
I blanket stiched around each mug
and I know exactly what I previously made out of almost every scrap of fabric on here
This quilt has been a few years in the making, mostly down to all the blanket stitching! I think it is one of my favourites. AND its my first Rhonda's FAL finish of the 2nd quarter!
I have also started on my next FAL project: which invovles the green and orange perle (just wanted to show you that fab red, white and blue perle too!)
my mystery quilt is up next - I have already started hand quilting. This was a hard one to decide how to quilt, so I went for the easy option and will stitch in the ditch around most of those stars
I have no children this weekend, so if you need me, I will be on the settee in the conservatory : hand quilting!
