A mug rug seemed like a good idea and would include most aspects of an actual quilt.

All sandwhich up. Don't have wading yet so used an old kids t-shirt.
Had a play with some free motion (see previous blog) and decided that I wanted to use a template. So I drew my own design onto parchment and pinned it to the ironed quilt sandwich.
The parchment template was quite easy to follow while quilting, but was a bit of a pest to remove from the quilt. Had to get out the tweezers.
I then used this http://youtu.be/xWh90tXr7g4 video to help me with the binding.
The finished mug rug!
