I have a dear friend who I have had the pleasure of working with for many years retire last week. While I'm thrilled for her, and I know this is not goodbye, it makes me sad when things that were once ordinary now become unordinary. It is her birthday this week and I wanted to make her some mug rugs to go with some cool soup mugs I bought her.
She has seen this fabric and mentioned that she likes it. Of course I like it, you may see another posting in the near future about the case I'm going to make for our mini I-Pad.
These were so easy to make and I really enjoyed working with the fabric. The typewriters are from a line called Type, and the small chevron background is from Reunion by Sweetwater.
I did a straight stitch with about 1/2" spacing, this is the first time I have quilted on my sewing machine in I don't know how long... I hope she likes them, maybe if I'm lucky I will get invited over for some delicious butternut squash soup we both used to love eating together at lunch!
