This is the first of what I hope to be many of my vintage Fiestaware mug rugs. I've refined my pattern a little bit and have made this 7" x 7" mini to hold my coffee cup and a cookie or two.
I experienced a happy accident while making this when I inadvertently cut my background pieces wrong side up. I decided to use them anyhow as I liked the subtlety of the the grey and white on the wrong side of the fabric as opposed to the starker black and white on the right side.
I used single-fold binding to finish this quilt. For small quilts that get little to no edge wear, single fold binding suffices. It is much less bulky than double fold and adds a nice crispness to the finished piece. I found a great tutorial to make single fold binding on The Little Red Hen blog.
