The Braided Style Will be Lovely in Other Fabrics, Too!
Strips of batik fabric stitch up quickly into a charming little mug rug. This is a great project for using up leftover five inch charm squares you already have in your stash.
Batiks are beautiful in this project and other fabric styles will be as well. Small prints of any kind, including ginghams and plaids, will be lovely made into this quilted braid.
This is a very easy project that even beginning quilters can finish quickly. It makes a lovely gift, too, so make several while you’re at it. You can have one made up in an hour or two.
The finished mug rug, designed by Diane Knott, is about 6″ x 9″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
