Last Minute Presents

I've been making last minute presents for friends.  Mug mats are so easy to make and each one is unique.

I absolute love appliqué and these mug mats where made from a left over piece of quilt.  With wrong sides together I sewed around the sides leaving a 2 inch gap to turn the whole piece through.  I closed up the gap by stitching close to the edge.  The hearts where bond-a-webbed on and free motioned stitched with gold metallic thread.  I used my sewing machine to  top stitched around the edge of the mat with a decorative stitch.

.....'til the next time, keep quilting
