14831  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Poodle Mug Rug! on: December 20, 2011 08:45:51 AM
I am a lefty as well and it does take some practice...you basically just need a 45 degree angle mark on a ruler...have you considered maybe making a "fake" binding on mug rugs?

Basically, all you do is make the back bigger, fold it to the front twice and stitch...I do this when I want a fast project or if I am making Quilt for Kids...

YAY for scraps...you are going to be addicted to making these and other small quilt projects!  Have fun!

I love how versatile the pieces are!  Making some of the pieces reversible...dirt turned into mountains...I am sure Levi will come up with more ways to use all of the pieces in ways we adults can't even imagine!

Good job for giving him the building blocks for creative play...maybe when he gets older you could do bats for his cave...a castle with knights and a drawbridge!...some sort of planets mobile for his earth scene...

He is one lucky kiddo to have such a creative mom...congrats!

What a good job you did for a first quilt project!!  And, it will make such a personal gift for your Mom since she loves poodles!

My only suggestion would be to use an interface or heatbond to your light colored appliques if you do not want the background prints to show through...personally, I like it with your poodle because it makes it seem translucent and airy!

I really can't see the seams of your binding...are you joining them diagonally?  I agree that seams make the item more handmade and give the quilted items charm!

Again, awesome and hope to see more of your projects!!

Love the color combos
