An other mug rug! As I promised last week, this one has the theme quilted in English: Tea in the Rose Garden. I think this one is my favorite, with the red rose and the red border. The tea cup is in purple and white like the peach rose version, but in reverse. In fact, those two purple and white fabrics where the top and the bottom of a pyjamas. I think they make handsome tea cups. Just like the old nightgown I used for the blue tea cup version. Flowery fabrics for old-fashion cups. What do you think?
All appliqués were stitched with a blanket stitch. The letters and details (such as the petals) where done with the free motion foot.
To make the back of the mug rugs, I used the same t-shirt fabric as for the rose appliqué. Then I made a simple stitch-in-the-ditch quilting along the borders.
The three mug rugs make a nice set together, I find. The blue one is for my father and the peach one, for my mother. I am keeping the red one. 🙂
