Holiday Quilt Blocks

Thanks for stopping bye this Tuesday . Today I am sharing some fun holiday blocks and projects to make.

Mug Rug :

Mug rugs are typically any size between a 4 x 7 and a 12 x 8. They are known for being able to place your mug on with a tasty treat such as a croissant, bagel or cookie.

What is the point of a mug rug? They can be used to protect your table or furniture against plant pots, serving bowls, condiments and much more. A pretty mug rug added to a dressing table is the perfect place for your perfume bottles or brush and comb set. They can adorn coffee tables, desks and worktables

Mug Rug Pattern:

Supplies Needed:

  • Strips of fabric
  • Base Fabric
  • Sewing Machine

First, you will begin by cutting your fabric pieces in strips.  My strips were about 2 inches wide and 8 inches long.  Mug rugs are typically any size between a 4 x 7 and a 12 x 8.  They are known for being able to place your mug on with a tasty treat such as a croissant, bagel or cookie.  Determine what size you want your finished mug rug to be and then adjust your measurements accordingly. Once your strips have been cut, you will lay the strips together, pretty sides touching, and sew.  Repeat with all the strips until you have one large piece.  If you want to add some extra stitching you can top stitch each strip. Once all your strips of fabric have been sewn together, press it with a hot iron.  Use your fabric as a pattern to cut out your base fabric. This helps makes sure they are the same size.

Place your main piece of fabric on top of your quilted fabric, pretty sides together, and sew around all four sides being sure to leave a 3 in-4 in gap for turning.   Turn your piece right side out and press with a hot iron.  Top stitch around all four edges being sure to sew the opening closed.   This is such a great project for fat quarters, and left over strips of fabric from other projects.  It’s quick, simple, and useful!
