Mug rugs

I had the most fun yesterday making Mug Rugs. I found a tutorial by Ryan Walsh for Dresden Wedges mug rugs but I decided to do rectangles since I was experimenting. I also didn't have the Dresden ruler and was too lazy to download one he had. But anyway, I had MODA on hand from when Marsha and I went to Quilting by the Bay. I knew I had saved that fabric for a reason. Anyway, I had a pack of the 5" squares in BUTTERFLY FLING and a yard of matching fabric. I cut them apart to make my 2-1/2 " by 5" material and played with them on my new design wall until I got it right. I sewed them up, put the border around them and quilted them with my walking foot, which worked GREAT, and left it there. Our class at our monthly guild meeting is on binding. I plan to use these to learn how to bind correctly. I plan to make more of these. Thank you Ryan Walsh for this fabulous tutorial. My pictures show how easy it is!
