Patchwork Quilt Mug Rug

Another of those quick little projects before I start a new garment and I picked a mug rug!  This is the second one I have made and it came out much better than the first though perhaps a little on the large size.  I came up with the idea whilst finishing the frst one and though it would be cute to make a mini quilt.
I patch worked the pieces together and made a little doll and bear from felt and hand stitched them.  I also learnt how to do mitred corners on the binding this time which I did not understand the last time I tried.
The quilting from the back.  My machine did something funny and pulled some of the pink top thread through but after re-threading it was fine.  I really like the flowery binding but haven't got much left now.  I drew it all out on paper first and sandwiched a piece of felt in the middle.  This is now for sale in my shop as it was pretty much made for fun rather than for someone.
