Mug Rug and A Winner

I decided to make a mug rug and try a new way of quilting. As you can see I reverted to good old straight line quilting. What a wimp. The pattern, Matchsticks is a freebie by Amy Newbold and you can find it at the Art Gallery Blog. It is basically a mini disappearing 9 patch. I won a prize at the Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio Blog while in Perth.
I won 3 patterns but it is the Studio Stitches pattern I want to make first. I got the pattern in a PDF format which is great because I got it straight away. I won a book last year which I didn't get at a different blog. It is very expensive to send things to Australia and I hope it wasn't sent and not lost in the mail.
