FMQ Friday - BMQG Dec Swap

For our BMQG December meeting we all have to bring something quilty stuff for gift exchange. I decided to make this little mug rug, since I knew I will be short of time and wanted to pick something which I can finish before the meeting. This is probably between 6 to 7 inch finished hexagon. Also this was my first attempt at finishing the little quilt with hexagon binding. I did have to fiddle with closing the binding right, took me a while.

Here are some pictures:
Hexa Mug Rug - Simply Color Fabric line by V & Co
Binding - I used ombre fabric in Aqua from same fabric line

Back of the mug rug - I even attempted to label it this time ;)
The binding was machine stitched to the front and hand stitched at the back. This little thing took me little over 4 hours to make. Either I am very slow or detailed oriented.

Now linking up to Leah Day's  FMQ Friday.
I will be back again with another post on the gift I got to grab. Yes, I used the word grab since it was a Yankee swap and I couldn't resist the gift made by a special friend. It was a steal for sure.

  1. This mug rug may be small but it is impeccable - I don't know how you bound something so tiny so neatly.

  2. Definitely detail-oriented!!! I swear little things are way harder to make... This is so adorable and as usual, your quilting is amazing!!! Such an awesome swap:-)
