Backings, mug rug binding.........


 
I chose backings a couple days ago and last night got them all pressed and ready for basting.  This top was completed in 2009 and I'm going to finally quilt it.
Here is another backing I chose.  I never did show this Strips that Sizzle after it was sewn, just the final layout.  It is also from 2009.  I made 2 tops in this same color combination.
I cleaned off my sewing cabinet to prepare for machine quilting but instead finished the bindings on another 5 mug rugs.



 
Here are the backs of the latest batch.











I had some hot dog buns in the freezer that had freezer burn on them so I took them out and thawed them and threw them out for the squirrels and birds.  This little guy came back several times for a snack.

You use such great stuff on your quilt backings.
Is that a Martha Negley flower on the mug rug on the left side?

I love your quilts and can't wait to see the batik 'drunkards path -bow tie-whatever it is' that you show in your top picture of this post completed.

The mug rugs are so pretty! I love the vibrant colors. Judging from the squirrel photo, it looks like you don't have any snow.

You have inspired me to make mug rugs. Question: you have made quite a lot of them. What do you do with them?

Of course the backings you chose had to compliment your grand design on top... And those mug rugs are like brilliant jewels. Love them just fanned out like that, makes for such a pretty display for a coffee table or anywhere for that matter. And the backs on them are luscious for sure. I don't think I could let anyone put their sloppy tea or coffee cup on them . (*._,*)
