Tiny, little bits of leftover batik and hand-dyed fabrics.
And a tiny bit of improvisational piecing. Love doing it that way!
I quilted this piece using King Tut in white, and then switched to the accent color, a warm yellow-gold in Rainbows, a solid poly. I had a light blue in Masterpiece in my bobbin for both colors. And of course, the top tension was lowered and a new, fresh, 90/14 topstitch needle was used.

I’ve seen “Mug Rugs” everywhere, and always thought they were fun. So this is my first-ever mug rug. (Above). And the backside looks like this.
And you can see the binding finish, too. I thread Razzle Dazzle (a thick thread) through the front of the foot, and stitch in the ditch, using a very narrow zig zag, and it stitches the binding down as I stitch a pretty sparkly thread accent on the front side at the same time! I posted a basic tutorial on this foot; see more about the Bernina #39 foot, here.
Is this your cup of tea? It is for me!! Here’s to a day with a hot cup of tea and a mug rug!!
