Hexagon Colour Wheel Mug Rug Patterns

I'm introducing three new mug rug patterns to brighten your home for spring. The bright primary colours against white, black,  and grey is a crisp combination. You could use these as potholders as well as mug rugs. They would look lovely in a modern kitchen. They would also be a great gift for an artist or art student. This is a good project for quilters just learning to foundation piece. Instructions assume basic knowledge in foundation piecing. The pattern includes instructions for all three mug rugs.

Red Cardinal Mug Rug

This pretty Red Cardinal rug mug is quick to make and would be a great Christmas gift for the bird lover in your life. I love birds and came up with this quick little project for the holiday season. It measures 7" x 10" and the Red Cardinal block is 7"x 7". Combine it with a cute holiday mug and a packet of hot cocoa mix for a Hostess gift.

Ice Cream Swirl Mug Rug

WHO WANTS ICE CREAM?!

My Ice Cream Swirl mug rug is a simple foundation pieced pattern. You can create it in your favourite ice cream flavours. The block is 7" x 7" (15cm x 15cm). Make nine blocks in different flavours for a cute mini quilt like the one below.

A Little Crazy Mug Rug: Free Pattern

This charming A Little Crazy mug rug is a foundation pieced design inspired by the crazy quilt. It measures 10 x 7½ inches. I love the oval shape and the fussy cut center adds an interesting focal point. The piece is quilted with decorative machine stitching to mimic crazy quilt embroidery. This would be a fun and fast project for anyone new to foundation paper piecing.

Pattern includes instructions for how to do a fussy cut, with template included, and how to cut foundation fabric pieces accurately.

The print fabrics I used are from the Garden Party collection by Tea & Sympathy. The yellow fabric is Henna Mustard Seed from the Eden collection by Tula Pink.

Wonky Beach House Mug Rug

Wow! Mug rugs are just flying out of my studio these days. I have them all over the house and my husband is still not sure what the heck they are, ha! I love this Wonky Beach House mug rug and the striped "ticking" fabric gives it a very casual "beachy" feel.

Purple Coneflower Mug Rug

I think this is one of my prettiest mug rugs so far. The inspiration for this piece came from a photo I took of the Purple Coneflowers in our garden a few years ago. Purple is one of my favourite colours, so I really enjoyed designing and making this one.
