I heard of mug rugs for the first time this week and I thought why did I never think of making one of those before!? I've stopped counting the number of water rings on my table..
So I had a go.. This was my first time patchworking - that bit wasn't too bad; first time quilting - it got a bit more challenging there with the 2 pieces of fabric moving around as I was going and my rectangle not ending up so much as a rectangle any more; and after watching a couple of videos on youtube, my first time using bias tape - I found that bit really tricky and the result was quite dreadful, especially at the back - but mug rugs aren't supposed to be flipped over, right?
Anyway, I need more practice!!
