Lisa's Mug Rug

Lisa took my free motion quilting class at The Sewing Machine Exchange earlier this month. I love seeing student projects--and this one is terrific--love the design and the fabric with the bird is so great. Look it up! A small project like this is a perfect opportunity to practice new skills. Go quilt!

Design opportunities presented themselves, like using the waistband for a strap and adding a pocket to the inside.

The finished product, a very usable tote bag, which made my friend happy.
