    I have found TONS of simple free mug rug patterns, but I can't find one that I don't need to put a binding on. I want to make a bunch of them for a retreat and don't have a lot of time. Any suggestions?

    Why don't you use the quilt turn method, not sure if you can FMQ with this method, might be a tying method, but someone here should be able to tell you

    I would do as Dolphyngyrl about the turn method. I would make my top lay the backing face down on the top, sew around it, leave a small opening so you can turn it and slip stitch the opening. I don't know why you couldm't free motion quilt if you wanted. I am like you, I don't want to put binding on them.

    I was also just think...you could sew it all around...then cut it at the bottom on the backside. Then pull through the fabric/binding....FMQ it then out a label on top of the slit. That would be sooo easy.

    Never thought of sewing & turning - duh!! Also never thought of fm quilting to 'pretty it up'. I have to make about 20 of these, and I don't think it'd take TOO long. Just really didn't want to mess with bindings. I also thought maybe I'll use my embroidery machine & embroider the event & date on & cut into strips, using them as a border.

    Thanks, all!
