Take the other 1 1/2’’ square from fabric D and place it on the bottom right square right sides facing.
Sew at the diagonal and trim away leaving 1/4’’ seam allowance.

Step 2:

Mug RugQuilting Mug Rug

 

I decided to trace vertical lines on the white strips at about 1/4” distance, and some echo quilting inside the tie. Using the Reverse pattern Foot #1D I was able to make perfect stitch lines.

Step 8:

Once you have quilted your piece, take one (1) 9 1/2’’ x 6 1/2’’ rectangle from fabric B and place it right sides facing.
Pin in place and sew all around leaving about 3’’ of opening.

Flip your piece, press and sew the opening close by hand.
