An Excellent Way to Try Out Paper Piecing!

Mug rugs – tiny crumb catcher quilts sized for a mug of coffee with a treat on the side – are wonderful quicky projects for busy quilters. There are so many patterns to choose from, but we especially like this one from Doodle Time Designs.

First of all, these mug rugs, which measure about 7″ x 7″, have a pleasing octagon shape. They’re a great way to use some of your favorite scraps, and they go together very quickly.

The pattern comes with 24 variations for the center of these tiny quilts. If you’re looking for simple, yet impressive, projects for gift giving, there’s sure to be something here for everyone, even the guys! Patterns for all the important holidays are included.

If you’ve been wanting to give paper piecing a try, this is a great way to get started. Begin with the version that uses a fussy cut in the center (fussy cuts are isolated designs cut from fabric, then showcased within quilt blocks). An example is this sunflower mug rug from Craftsy member Gramjo1.

Then, move on to one of the simpler paper pieced versions. Complete paper piecing instructions are included.

Bindings can be a chore, but these mug rugs aren’t put together with bindings, even though they appear to be. That makes them especially quick and easy to complete.

This is a pattern you’ll use over and over again! It’s not free, but there are 24 variations to choose from, making it an incredible value.
