I have never quilted or even posted on this board before but I had to try my hand to the mug rug, which I am now addicted to and I knocked this one up over 2 days.  (Bf was sleeping after a night shift otherwise it would have been quicker!)



It's for my friend who works very hard and absolutely loves monkeys so I think she will like having this around the office for her tea and biscuits heeehee!  I haven't ever done patchwork either and it was very fun and easier than expected.  I just used off cut pieces to make this one.

You can see the quilting better on the back, I just used a zig zag stitch as I thought it has quite a cute effect with the fabrics I used.


Close up of the cute monkey fabric, I added the sequins as I forgot the monkeys were smaller than the bits I already cut and I wanted to add a bit of extra sparkle but not so much so that you couldn't use it.
