What Color Will You Make Yours?
Red and white is always a striking color combination, but these little mug rugs would be wonderful made in any solid color. They’d be equally lovely made with small scale prints, as well.
The pattern is simple to sew together, making this a quick and easy project for quilters with basic skills.
There is one minor fix to the cutting instructions. Cut five 1 1/2 inch squares of the star fabric (not 2 1/2 inches, as specified – see the comments below the tutorial).
It looks like the little quilts will be about 5″ square when finished. That makes them perfect for mug rugs. But you could also put 4 or more blocks together and make a wall quilt or table topper. Sew two rows of blocks end to end and make a table runner. Or, enlarge the pattern slightly and make them into hot pads. There is so much you can do with this pattern!
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!
