It Makes a Lovely Gift Too!
Do you love Dresden Plates but are reluctant to commit to a full-sized quilt? Try them out by making this lovely sunflower mat to brighten a table in any room.
It can be used as a mug rug, candle mat, or centerpiece for a small vase of flowers. Or add Insul-Bright batting for use as a pot holder or hot pad. It’s also a delightful gift for a sunflower lover or anyone needing something special to put their drink and snack on.
Plus, it’s a quick project you can have finished up in an afternoon. Templates are provided and clear instructions will walk you through the process. You’ll also learn how to make the perfectly round center without curved piecing.
You may already have everything you need in your stash. Create a nice combination of yellows, golds, and oranges, then choose a brown for the center.
The finished mug rug, designed by Vikki Pac from Marshall Street Sewing, is about 11” across.
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!
