And some more stitched items...


This is going to be a little quilt to lay across the back of Roger's recliner.  I have had this part finished for a while now, it is just a matter of getting it layer and quilted.

 And here I made two more little mug mats...I did one one day and another another day...while killing time waiting to go to therapy appt. yesterday and   doctor's appt. today.  Please ignore all the stray threads on the design wall.  I was just hurrying to take the photo and didn't take time to clean them off.

I have tried 3 different ways of doing the binding and not completely happy with any one of them.  But they are mug mats and I am not going to worry too much about it.
*****************
We had a downpour of rain.  I know we need it, but so wish some of the places that have the wildfires would get some, too.

I like Roger's quilt for his chair. The mug mats are very nice too. I imagine your temps will get colder after the rain. We are still warm and dry here.
Hope you both rest well tonight.

I would love to be able to make pretty quilt designs like you. The little mug mats are so cute. That is such a good idea. I like the story about the "bird party". I was looking back at your posts I've missed.

Love the quilts and the mug mats. I just finished a couple of place mats for one of my sisters and I hate binding the edges of such small items! All that hand sewing on the back seems tedious for something small. For something like mug mats I usually just turn them and not use a binding at all, but the binding sure adds another dimension of color and design if you have the patience! Love the colors in these.
