My First FNSI!

I've been working on mug rugs this week, and finished them up yesterday during the Friday Night Sew In, held monthly by Heidi and her sister at HandmadebyHeidi.  

I'm new to the quilting world, and haven't sewn in very many years...these are only the 3rd, 4th, and 5th ones I've made, so don't look too closely.

I decided it was time to try out the features on this machine that my sister gave me awhile back.  The machine is a Vogue Stitch and quite old, but has some cogs for specialty stitches.

This blue used to be someone's shirt.

This is not your average zigzag stitch, oh no no no...but is the #10 cog from the pack.  The half circles are made with the #12 cog.  I think I'm liking it!

 If you're curious, photos of my first 2 mug rugs are HERE.
