For Island Batik Ambassadors we were to make a mug rug celebrating Galentine's Day.
I decided to make a wonky woven heart using fusible applique. I cut four round pieces and two squares with fusible on the back. I used Steam a Seam 2 because it would stick to my fabric when I was arranging the pieces.
Then I had fun using a fancy stitch to do the quilting around the edge of the heart.
I also decided to sew t;he binding to the back and flip it to the front so I could use the same decorative stitch around the edge of the binding. I love how it turned out!
I had fun quilting hearts on this mug rug.
And swirls on the other.
And since I was sewing with my Gal Pals at Quilter's Night Out what a better way to end the evening than giving one of my mug rugs to my friend Shawn!
Happy Galentine's Day everyone.
I hope you get to quilt today!
Happy Galentine's Day Suzy, those are the cutest!!ReplyDelete
I love the feather stitching that you used. Really cute touch.ReplyDelete
What a great idea to use that specialty stitch on the heart AND the binding! That would make a really quick finish. Genious! Your Galentine projects turned out so cute.ReplyDelete
