Acorn Mini Quilt is Perfect for Your Thanksgiving Table
This delightful little acorn quilt can be used as a hot pad, trivet or mug rug!
Acorns are as much a sign of autumn as maple leaves but you’ll find few acorn quilt patterns mixed in with the many maple leaf patterns. That’s why we were delighted to find this little acorn quilt pattern. It’s an easy project to complete, and perfect for beginning quilters, as well as more experienced ones. Fusible applique and machine stitched edges make the acorn easy to create.
While we love the deep autumn colors, we can easily see this acorn made up in lighter, brighter fabrics as well.
We can also see this pattern enlarged and made as a table runner or wall hanging. The round shape makes it extra special!
Or, put several acorn appliques onto square blocks and string them together into a table runner.
Here are simple instructions for enlarging a mug rug pattern from The Patchsmith. This should work for this pattern as well, although, depending on how large you go, you may need to tape some of the pattern pieces together.
The designer, Patrick Lose, included 3 designs in his “Signs of the Season” mini mat quilt pattern pack. Besides the acorn, there’s a sunflower and pumpkin patch pattern.
The acorn mini mat measure 7 1/2″ when completed. The pattern is digital, meaning you can download and print it from your computer.
