Butterflies Take Flight on Pretty Mug Rugs |
Choose from Two Patterns – There are Instructions for Coasters, Too!
These whimsical mug rugs will brighten your home during the grayest days. They’re just big enough for a mug and a treat on the side, perfect for keeping near your desk or handy in the kitchen.
Choose between two patterns from The Patchsmith and stitch one together in next to no time. Both patterns are quick fusible applique projects and can be put together from colorful scraps.
They both make wonderful last minute gifts any time of the year. Give one to someone you appreciate for any occasion or just because.
The first pattern can be adapted for both a 5″ coaster made from a charm square and a 6″ butterfly block for use in a quilt.
In fact, either of the two butterfly applique patterns can be incorporated into other projects.
The mug rug, before quilting, is 9.5″ x 5″ and the unfinished butterfly block is 6.5″.
The second pattern is just as charming and features two butterflies fluttering over a bed of flowers. Select a colorful assortment of scraps to create a colorful version.
Instructions are included for both a traditional binding and a mock binding. The examples shown here were made with the mock binding.
The finished mug rug is 8″ x 5.5″.
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!
