|Mug Rug made with hand painted cardinals and Inklingo|
I'm a member of a quilter's forum. Over Christmas, I made this Mug Rug for my swap mate. She loves cardinals. The cardinals are hand painted. I hand pieced the star using Inklingo-diamond-triangle-square- collection. The star is made from left over pieces from the Carpenters Wheel top I made from the same collection.
I recommend making Mug Rugs to all quilters. For me, it's a short project so it keeps my attention long enough to finish without being pulled in another quilt direction. They allow me to practice my skills. With this project, I practiced fabric drawing and painting, hand quilting, quilt binding, and hand piecing with InkLingo. I do so love to hand piece and have been piecing by hand forever, but Inklingo adds a new dimension to the process and opens up all these possibilities.
I intend to make more Mug Rugs using the various Inklingo collections.
