    Hey Avis, That is really cute and looks sew simple when you do it. I think I will have to make some and perhaps place mats in the same design. Love the batik fabric.too. Great tutorial, it answers every question I could have. Thank you for sharing. I am sure your friend will love it. Hand made gifts are so special.

    • Hi Lin, I just thought of a quick way to make several….just make the strips longer and sew a long strippy quilt. Then chop it up into individual mats. Sew along the top and bottom of each and bind. I agree, handmade gifts are great :-)

        Oh! WOW. I had no idea I was to be the lucky recipient of the gorgeous mug rug. I wondered just what the package could be when the postman arrived about an hour ago. Thank you so much it is really lovely. I’ve emailed you a “trying it out” picture. I want everyone to know it looks even better on my table than in the pictures. Thank you so very, very much. You’ve made me feel all warm and fuzzy. :-)

        • He-he! That was fun ;-) I was hoping you wouldn’t see this post until after the mail had arrived. When I saw your comment this morning I thought he-he she doesn’t suspect. I’m so pleased you like it! It’s always nice when people appreciate handmade things :D Avis x

    Thank you so much, Avis, as always you are so inspiring. I’ll definitely try this especially your idea of how to make several mats quickly.

    • Hi Gail, Well if you do make some, send me an email with a photo (address on the right) and I’ll share it with everyone :-) I’m now thinking I might do several Christmas table runners all in one go for presents….so many ideas, so little time. Christmas! Who said that!!!

      • It may seem small to you, but the way you close the binding appeals to me. I’ve had so much bulk with the method I’ve been using. Looking forward to this.

        • If you mean joining the two ends together…..I’ll have the quilt police after me for that! You are supposed to cut them diagonally but for such a small mat, I didn’t see the point and this way works fine because it is fiddly enough. I love to break the rules now and again ;-)

  11. Fantabulous! How did you know I have a leftover piece of wadding just about this size? Next two weeks = holidays = all kinds of crafting. :)
    When working with sticky stuff I always use a sheet of baking paper to protect my iron. Have you tried this?

    Reply
    • No, I haven’t tried that. You are a genius! I could have saved several irons if I’d known you before. On one occasion I was too lazy to get the ironing board out for a T-shirt. So I ironed it on the floor at the top of the stairs. No-one told me it was a nylon carpet, did they :lol:

    • Thank you. I found the method for a table runner on YouTube by the Misourri Star Quilt Company. I made Christmas table runners and just adapted the size for this.
