How about another Dish Rug! I use a towel for the backing and no batting.
Here it comes!
I try to roll the front fabric over to the back when I press it. Then stitch around the outside edge. My top stitch seam is at least 1/2 from the seam.....you want to get past the seam allowance which is bulky. My old 15-91 Singer has no problem going through this bulky towel but you might want to stitch slowly.
Now I topstitch the seam that is open - I go ahead and go from one side to the other.
I have made them before where I did some free motion quilting but on this one I just folded the seam lines and then did a X. The dish rug finished at almost 17 inches square.
I have been tickled to see people making things from my tutorials! If you do please let me know!
