Mug Rug Madness!




Welcome to my blog! Thanks to all my regular readers and thanks to any new readers for coming over for Mug Rug Madness Round 2: Holiday Edition hosted by Erin of Two More Seconds! There will be some great prizes this time so make sure to enter to win at Two More Seconds.


This time around The Fat Quarter Shop sent us some really fun fabric to work with. I got to use the Countdown to Christmas fabric by Sweetwater. I love the little reindeer and the snowflakes most of all, but there are also some great stripes and dots and a lot of other fun Christmas fabrics in that line.

And now onto my mug rug! I know this isn't a new design - but I've been wanting to try it out for some time now. I figured a this would be the perfect test size. I whipped it up in no time at all.



To make this mug rug:

Cut 2 inch squares of each fabric in the quantity shown in the photo below.



Arrange them as they are in the photo below.


Sew together in strips and then sew strips together. Quilt and bind. Finished mug rug measures 10.5 inches by 7.5 inches.


This was a sponsored post by Fat Quarter Shop. They gave me the fabric to make this mug rug, but I chose how to make it and which fabrics in the line I used. Click the button below to take you over to Fat Quarter Shop or visit their blog or their facebook page.

  1. This is so cute, thanks for the tutorial! I'm so terrible at matching points, I'm sure mine will come out super-wonky, but I'm going to give it a try as soon as I have a little free time!

  15. Just found this and the timing is perfect! I haven't sewn anything in a while but have a hankering to make a) a few mug rugs (one for me, two for Christmas presents) and b) a cross/plus sign quilt. This small project is just what I need to get my feet wet again and practice crosses!

    Thanks!!
