Make One Up to Give Any Time of the Year!
Just about everyone will enjoy having their own stars and stripes mug rug for their table or desk. This striking mini quilt will be put to good use all year long.
Vivid colors give it an eye-catching flair, or use more subdued coloration for an Americana look. You may already have fabrics in your stash that will work wonderfully for this project.
Simple piecing and fusible applique make the mug rug a quick and easy project, even for beginners. If you’re unable to locate navy fabric with stars, consider appliqueing a star in that block as shown below.
Once completed, the mug rug from The Patchsmith is about 9″ x 5″. That’s the perfect size for placing under a mug with room for a treat on the side.
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!
