I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Wedding Favours

I decided to make mug rugs as small gifts for guests at my wedding two weeks ago.  I started to run out of time, so ended up using a machine sewn binding on most of them.

For my sister, Heidi.  I used TAP to transfer a photo of our Dad on the beach with my sister many years ago.  I did some crazy quilting and added small pieces of lace.

For my brother-in-law, Paul, who has never visited England before, I used a pattern - the Union Jack Mug Rug by the Patchsmith.

My daughter-in-law, Natalie married my son,  James 13 months ago.  I used TAP to transfer a photo from their wedding, crazy quilted and added lace.

James came on holiday to Derbyshire with Mike and I in 2006.  We set up the camera on a rock and took a photo of the three of us at this lovely waterfall.  I used TAP to transfer this photo onto cotton, and used batiks to complete the mug rug.

Matthew is Mike's sister's son.  He is a keen footballer.  I drew a silhouette of a footballer and ball and used fusible web.  I used blanket stitch around the image and letters.

Carla is Matt's sister. I used fusible web and pretty reproduction 1930s fabrics and blanket stitched around the letters.

Daryl is Matt and Carla's mum and Mike's sister.  I used pretty small polka dots and faded  florals for Daryl's mug rugs.
