Double Cup

I recently took a little time to make another mug for the wall-hanging - which I am calling Three for Tea.
This mug is a little taller and there were a few more pieces and fiddly bits, but went together just as well as the first one.

A few of you have noted that the background fabric looks a little like steam rising from the cups. But that was just luck. The fabric is leftover from the solid blocks in the Spearmint Sticks quilts (it looks beige here, but it's actually a soft green) and I thought it would work well with the fat quarter fabrics.

So, now I have two cups,
 With just one more to go. Then I can put them all together and decide on borders. I've got some leftover brown from the Chocolate-Covered Pinwheels quilt, which is a nice match. And of course, there's a fair bit left over from the fat quarter bundle - these little cups barely use anything - they'd  be great for using up scraps!

I love that fabric!!! What a great apron it would make. I'll have to go investigate.

That background fabric is perfect. It's going to make a very pretty wall hanging. Very cool idea and I love the " Three for Tea" name you've given it.
