Zakka Style - Cloud (and Leafy) mug rug

After my not so neat attempt at needle turn applique, I decided to start again and do the cloud using fusible webbing, ala Quilt Dad which I liked much better.
I used perle threads in a few shades of blue for the stitching of the "rain".
I didn't have any light blue linen so bought some pure linen which as you can see, crushes badly! 
I had some of the grey dot fabric so used it for the binding on the cloud mug rug, and a pretty green for the leaf one.
Linking to LR stitched, to Fabric Tuesday at Quiltstory, and to Little Quilt Monday at Pieceful LIfe with Elizabeth.


  1. Here's to fusible web! Love the perle cotton...

  2. Fusible web is the best and the mug rug looks fab.

  3. I already liked the cloud mug rugs, but now the leaf is catching my eye...very very pretty.

  4. They're both adorable. I'm really loving those dotted borders.
