I don't mean to disagree Mrs. M. but I quite like the top left one as compared to the others........................although they are all very nice. Thank you for showing us your latest creation.
Really pretty... Love the colors
this is very pretty, ~hugs~
I like them all!!! Great job!!!
Very, very nice. Thank you for showing
Oh! Martine this looks beautiful,luv Chris
That's lovely, Martine!
Real pretty, Martine!
It's funny, I am a cup-and-saucer girl, but since I digitised the pumpkin mug rugs last October I stitched out 18 and digitised 3 more, for all seasons and occasions. Quite a pile!
I love my mug rugs. My everyday china doesn't have saucers, so they are perfect for me.
This is lovely. hugs
Lovely and I do like the top left one - gives it some punch. How did you do the background on your machine first or last and marked it off - would like to know thanks Karen
I did a basting line first, to keep the batting and top layer in place, then the leaves followed by the cross hatch quilting, .put the fabric for the back face down on top and stitched the seam last. it has an opening for turning at the left hand side, which needs to be closed by hand. It fits a 5x7 in hoop.
I hope this answers your question.
many thanks for explaining the process - much appreciated
love it !great job,you are too hard on yourself!
I love this mug rug. The design is beautiful and the threads too:-)
Think I told you before Martine I love ginkgos. Tiny little tree in yard across the road from me, about 3 feet tall. Hope I live to see it get to be large. They look really great on your mug rug. I always say they look elegant/Lillian
How delightful to have tree so close, albeit a rather small one. I love the bright yellow autumn colour as well the green leaves, so much lighter than our native trees. And the full-grown ones are quite impressive.
I think this is lovely. It highlights the leaf. Could have one done in the muted tones and make another using the bright highlight thread. The bold leaf just accents this. Love it.
Isn't it wonderful how a simple leaf can become such an attractive design. Your mug rug is lovely.
I like the colours you have used very nice mug rug
I think the top left one is very pretty, I do agree though, I love the ombre type too.....I have a hard time finding them in cones though.......lovely mug rug, Martine........
I have Marathon threads, 12 colours, 1000m spools. They do sell 5000m spools as well. I noticed www.Marathonthreads.com sells them, problem is the colour chart does not give the numbers for the multicoloured threads :( could not find those. I tried with a number of my ombre moss green (5514) and light green (5512) and they apparently sell those as I did not get an error message. They are $ 5.95 and free shipping in the USA for orders over $100.
