Apples for a Teacher Mug Rug

from 2strings
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Apples for a Teacher Mug Rug
Apples for a Teacher Mug Rug
Apples for a Teacher Mug Rug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, basic foundation paper piecing skills.

Pattern Description:

Apples are the perfect gift for a teacher at the end of the school year. This is a quick and easy little project that's sure to be appreciated by a teacher or by anyone. For an extra special touch for a younger child's teacher, you might have your child write a note on the back of the mug rug, or simply sign the back.

The wonky gray background has a modern feel, but the apples are pure tradition - a bit of the best of both worlds.

The pattern for this mug rug contains 3 pages of instructions, one page with a full size layout of the pattern, one page of templates, and a page of the foundation paper for the background.

If you have any questions or comments, please send an email to me at: klee2strings@gmail.com.

I would love to see photos of your completed work in the completed projects section of this pattern page.
