Wow, Kaz! That was your partner's first ever quilting project? I'm impressed!

Thanks, dharma!  Cheesy  Mostly I think she's unhappy with the corners on the back.  But it was a definite learning experience and it's already been put to work! 
3122  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A Cheerful Stripey, Flowery Mug Rug on: January 26, 2011 11:57:38 AM
Hello quilters!  I have just finished my first mug rug and wow ... I bow down to all of you who do anything bigger!

This is my finished piece:




I made my own bias tape and I think I know what I did wrong on attaching it (though I think I've done alright with the mitred corners on the front, at least), so that's something, but I'm not going to show you the back. Wink  

BUT I have a question ... how do get it so when I quilt the layers together, one side doesn't pull and get off center?  I pinned it out the wazoo with straight pins.  Do I need the quilting safety pins?  (The little squares have become parallelograms.)

Please any comments, criticisms, and suggestions would be really really appreciated.  I want to make some for Christmas presents, but I wouldn't want to give something quite this newbie-feeling away, so if you have a suggestion, I would <3 you forever!

Well, I finished my mug rug.  Although it's by far from perfect, I did my best with her first ever quilting project/mug rug.  I love the colors and the fabric at least.  This was my first time making my own binding tape and wow, did I learn a lot about what to do ... and not do. Cheesy  I will also need to watch a few tutorials and ask a few questions on the quilting board.



But it's not toooo shabby for a first effort!

Wow, my partner finished my mug rug.  Although it's by far from perfect, I can tell she did her best with her first ever quilting project/mug rug.  I love the colors and the fabric choices.  This was her first time making her own binding tape and wow, did she learn a lot about what to do ... and not do. Cheesy

Hmm, I'd put a help desk ticket in for this one.  Though I'm curious what the answer is myself!
