Another mug rug, another Christmas present

Last week I blogged some photos of a mug rug for my manager. It didn't turn quite as expected - not really right for my manager, but perfect for Sheila. So back to the drawing board and the Farmer's Wife provided the answer:This is block 19 Chequerboard with some chintzy fabrics. I'm really pleased with the result. I foundation pieced the block, hand quilted it with embroidery thread (I didn't have the right colour perle cotton) and then bound.
