A Finish: Late Night Mug Rugs

Last weekend I was lamenting that I was a quilter who never quilts as it has felt like forever since I had the opportunity to sew much less finish something.  My trip away was the jump start I needed to get out some fabric and start cutting.  Monday evening I pulled out a FQ (fat quarter) stack of A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky that I won in a giveaway from Debbie from A Quilter's Table way back in February and then I remembered what Debbie had recently made with the same fabric.  Debbie and I both agreed that this fabric is not automatically an easy me it doesn't call out for a specific project but when I saw her post in May about the potholders she had made with it, I had my muse.  Please visit her post here for her inspiration of where she received the original idea.  Thanks Debbie!

I used a new-to-me binding technique from VeryKerryBerry for a Single Binding Tutorial. I found it very helpful and easy to read and the binding went on super fast.  I finished the last stitch of binding last night at about HBO for the weekend had me up late.

So satisfying is a finish!  

If you are a podcast listener I have a request, would you please listen to the two minute test I published yesterday on Podbean and iTunes to let me know how the sound quality is?  Yesterday amidst almost eight hours helping out with the 8th grade dance I ran a quick errand to pick up a new microphone.

Off to conquer the day...hope you all have a great Saturday,
