This mug rug is as pretty as a picture with its large butterfly floating above a simple patchwork background. Perfect for Mother’s Day or as a gift for a friend, relative or teacher, all that is needed area few scraps of fabric and an hour of your time.
With enough room for a mug and a cookie this functional mini quilt is a great way to use up scraps of fabric or a couple of charm squares. The central band adds an elegant touch and provides the perfect spot for some hand-stitching or personal quilting.
As for the butterfly – you do not need to stick to a ‘Red Admiral’, ‘Holly Blue’ or ‘Cabbage White’ - there is no end to the combination of fabrics and colours. You can create your own unique species of Butterfly from shabby-chic (as shown in the beige/tan example) to bright and bold (as shown in the red/purple mug rug).
Alternatively you could make a coaster using one 5” charm square and the butterfly applique. This pattern comes with easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full size templates.
The pattern also includes a bonus set of perfectly sized templates to create a 6" butterfly quilt block - a lovely addition to any sampler quilt or small project.
