There’s a Smaller Mug Rug Option Too!
This charming little quilt was designed as a crumb catcher for a plate of cookies. However, it will be lovely as a centerpiece on a table and is perfect for showcasing a vase of flowers, a bowl of candy, or a pretty candle. It could even be used as a placemat.
Plus, it’s wonderful in prints for any season. We love the Christmas version created by the designer and are also inspired by the variations. Notice how the design changes depending on the placement of colors and values.
The pretty little quilt is a simple project you can complete in just a few hours. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself making more than one.
The version above was turned instead of bound.
Once completed, the quilt designed by Julie Cefalu from The Crafty Quilter is 15″ diameter.
A printable PDF version is available here.
Julie also created a tutorial for a smaller version that’s perfectly sized for a warm beverage and a cookie. It can be used for a vase or a candle as well as a mug rug. Both sizes make lovely gifts as well.
Notice that instead of binding the outside edge she turned the mug rug instead. That finish works nicely for the larger version as well. Instructions for turning are included in the mug rug tutorial found below.
The completed mini quilt is 8 1/2″ in diameter.
A printable version is available at the bottom of the PDF found here.
