Very interesting!!! Looking good :)
Haha I'd say Sebago has laid dibs on the mug rug. I thought I had it bad with my 2 dogs underfoot while trying to get anything done but it looks like Mr Sebago is quite persuasive in the attention grabbing mode!
Right now he just has the fabric;-). The mug rug has not yet been started but soon...it is all planned out just need to do it! He seriously thinks he owns the fabric...
Yes, post pictures! I think that is what we are supposed to do!
There you go:-)
Totally love it!!
Very cool. I love birds, especially cute, comical ones. Good job.
Fantastic! I love it!
This is darling!!! What stitch did you use to do the applique? It almost looks like a chain stitch done by machine?
Terryt1955 it is called sketchy stitching and is done through FMQ...you just are going around or over same area 3-4 times and not trying to stay on top of previous stitching...which works well for me;-) I got pattern and idea from the book "Little Birds: 26 Handmade Projects to Sew, Stitch, Quilt & Love" but also just added a tutorial to show you... thanks!
True , well isn't that just the neatest thing, that sketchy stitching! Thanks for the tutorial! You are really taking off with the FMQ...
Thanks Terryt1955 I actually only am using FMQ on small things or artsy quilts...I love seeing it on everyone else's quilts but on my own I love my straight line quilting. As I think I said somewhere before I do reserve the right to change my mind;-)
Cute, cute and cute. Oh did I say cute.
This is adorable!
I love the birds and the 'sketchy stitching'! Super cute!
This mat is adorable, I love those birds! I adore sketchy stitching, it's a skill I want to learn. : )
Thank you Robotmomsews and Mrsdragon I was just getting it all set to be mailed- so I can stick it in mail on 24th as I will be just returning from vacation then! Sketchy stitching is super easy...for me hardest part was letting go of my own need for order and thinking things need to be a certain way!
Gorgeous, so cute.
Pompom Thank you...decided last night as falling asleep I need to do five of these for my book club members for the holiday...wish I had thought that out a month ago since we will be celebrating early!!
