Mug Rugs in Circle

Small circle mug rugs should be easy, and they are, until it comes to the binding. Binding finishes the edges of things, makes them look neat. 

We have finishing edges to our lives in many ways, such as how we take that last look in the mirror before going outside into the public part of our lives. We add finishing touches to our hair, washing windows, making beds. So many examples.

Yet binding on round objects is not like the straight line. A quilter has to make something on purpose to use round binding on anything. Now I know. 

I have made a couple of these round mug rugs before and liked how they turned out. This one is for a Swapbot exchange and is in the mail.
