As the designer, Brittany Love, reminds us:
“Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.”
~ John Lennon
Fusible applique and machine buttonhole stitching make this go together quickly. Choose a dark thread for the stitching, as the designer did, or choose a matching thread (or even invisible thread with a zig zag stitch).
Hand or machine embroider the sentiment, or leave it off entirely for a less personal gift.
The finished mug rug is about 6″ x 8.5″. You can also add narrow and wide contrasting borders to increase the size into a small wall quilt. Better yet, line up 3 flower pots in a row, perhaps with narrow sashing in between, for a more complex and eye-catching wall quilt.
