It is easy to organise an in the hoop quilting ..
.. when you have an embroidery software that makes it possible.
It takes a bit of time and practice and you can create near perfect mug rugs as they call it. But, mug rugs aren’t the only thing they can create in hoop now days. They also create little pouches in the hoop.
It takes the right stabilisers, hand picked fabrics from your scrap fabric stash, and the right colour threads. Here I used the cut away stabiliser and Ryan thread. I did not add a backing but you are most welcome to add a backing and finish it off with a suitable thin binding of your choice.
This is quick in the hoop project.
