SEWING SOMETHING SWEET


FINISHED THE BINDING LAST NIGHT WHILE WATCHING BOARDWALK EMPIRE, LOVE THAT SHOW. 


FINISHED MY BARBARA BRACKMAN BLOCK FROM SATURDAY.

I THEN STARTED ON SOME CHRISTMAS MUG RUGS!



I MADE MYSELF SOME CIRCLE TEMPLATES AND THEN CUT OUT MY CIRCLES.


I MADE MY SWIRL TEMPLATES AND MARKED WHICH POINT WAS THE CENTER.


DREW  ON HEAT N BOND, THE 3 PIECES NEEDED FOR EACH MUG RUG.  THEN IRONED ONTO BACK OF WHITE MATERIAL AND CUT OUT EACH WHITE PIECE.  PLACED EACH WHITE PIECE ONTO RED AND GREEN CIRCLES CAREFULLY SO CENTERS ARE JUST TOUCHING.  IF A LITTLE OFF ON EDGE YOU CAN ALWAYS TRIM IT OFF!




I SATIN STITCHED DOWN THE WHITE RAW EDGES. I THEN MADE A SANDWICH OF TWO LAYERS OF BATTING AND ONE BACKING AND THE TOP. I DID USE A SOLID FABRIC BACKING.






TO QUILT IT ,  I JUST FOLLOWED THE CURVE IN EACH  COLORED SECTION. ONCE QUILTED I ADDED BINDING. I WILL SEW  DOWN THAT ,  WHILE I WATCH WAREHOUSE 13 TONIGHT!  THESE ARE JUST BIG ENOUGH THAT A COUPLE OF COOKIES AND A CUP OF HOT COCOA WILL FIT. 
ALL FOR NOW, MARTHA
