Hexie tree mug rug


This might be larger than the usual mug rug...
It is 9½ x 13...
 It started with some hexies I had been making with scraps of Kate Spain 12 days of Christmas...
 For the background I decided to use fabric from Ho Ho Ho Jolly Christmas by Camelot Cottons with
snowflakes as the top fabric and presents and trees at the bottom....
I sewed the hexies onto the fabric with batting behind.....
I used some squares for the side from the Kate Spain fabric....
And this photo is before I quilted the layers together....
I decided to not use a binding and just sew right sides together and turn and..
then topstitch around the edge...
Here is the back from the Ho Ho Ho fabric....
Another fun project to do.

Smiles and hugs....Caryl

I will be for the first time to Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation Needle & Thread Thursday.
Also will link with finish it up Friday and Link a Finish Friday.
And also linking to Connie at Linky Party Tuesday.

  6. I would never say a mug rug is too big - it just has more room for cookies is all :)

    I Hope you'll bring your mugrug to my next monthly hexie linky party - next one is 12/17/13.
