Saw this material at Big W and couldn't resist. It just screams MUG RUG, doesn't it? The navy material will make up the centre of the mug rug, and the red & white material will make a beautifully contrasting binding.
The dots and utensils set will become either a place mat, or a pot holder. I'm leaning more towards the pot holder personally. I'm always happy to see that Big W hasn't discontinued the Fat Quarter range of material they hold. It wasn't too long ago that you could buy the batting there, then they downsized the quilting/sewing supplies by about a quarter. Not happy, Fred! In a small town where supplies are limited, that was definitely a kick in the pincushion ;-D
So depending on how my mug rugs turn out, I'll be making them as presents this year and find a nice antique tea cup to go along with it (perhaps with a few teabags and a small packet of yummy biscuits like Tim Tams?). I'll let you know how it goes.
On the up side, I treated myself to a pre-cut quilting pattern book. I already have my eye on the Pinwheel Quilt to make for mum's birthday later in the year. It never hurts to plan ahead.
