PLEASANT HOME: Scrappy Tree Mug Rugs!

After I cut a nice pile of strips. I made a template in the shape of a tree. {update 1/24/11} this template is no longer available.

My plan for them is to make a rag rug, but these mug mats have been everywhere lately. It seemed like a good place to donate some of my stash. If you haven’t heard, a mug mat is more than a coaster, but less than a placemat. The theory is, it can hold your cup of tea or coffee with room left for a little pastry or cookie to go with it. It calls out to the girly-girl in me. To make one, you’ll need this pattern and 1” wide strips of cotton fabric, each approximately 20” long. You don’t have to use 1” wide strips. Sew the strips together side by side with a 1/4” seam.

It turned out SO. Before I even knew what happened I had layered it, pin basted it..and I was sitting down and dropping the feed dogs on my trusty old Bernina..and FREE MOTION QUILTING this thing! I haven’t free-motion quilted on a domestic machine in years, and let me tell you, it’s an acquired skill that needs constant up-keep if you are going to keep it! SO…you want one?
