Vary the Size of the Triangles to Adjust the Finished Size!
This little hexagon is so easy and makes a lovely mug rug. It’s such a quick and easy project that you may find yourself making one for every season and others to give as gifts.
While it looks simple (and it is!), there’s so much you can do with this basic pattern. It starts with cutting 4″ strips into triangles using a Hex N More Ruler (or any 60 degree ruler). However, the options are unlimited.
Start with smaller strips for coasters, or go as big as you want. It can go all the way up to place mat size. Or, strip piece the triangles before cutting them to add variety.
You can also play with quilting. This will be a fun project to try out quilting with decorative stitches instead of the traditional straight stitch.
The finished mug rug is about 7″ across at the flat sides.
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.
