|a mug rug for my mum to use during december :)|
i printed off the pattern and enlarged it slightly to make it easier for me to sew! the next job was to find some fabric and cut pieces to fit each numbered space. then it's a case of sewing in the order of the numbers and then finishing the quilting process by something dee call sewing in the ditches (i think that's what she said anyway!).

outcome: not too bad for my first effort at paper piece quilting on my own! i was so engrossed in the process though i did forget to take photos along the way, so today their are only after shots! i am really enjoying starting to quilt and i think it has made a huge difference starting off with some small things and using this method ... so much easier than trying to match large squares together! i can't thank my dear friend dee enough for helping me learn this technique, you are such a sweetie my lovely friend :)
my thanks to azpatch for this wonderfully free paper piecing pattern that enabled me to make the cutest christmas mug rug for my sweet mum :)
