small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting, applique, and embroidery skills.

Pattern Description:

When I think of April and the showers that come in spring I picture children out in the rain, splashing in puddles wherever they can find them. These little silhouette mug rugs are the second in what seems to be turning into a series of children and pets at play.

This pattern includes three pages of instructions with photos, templates for the children, puppies, and shoes, plus full size layouts of each of the mug rugs. The layouts show placement of applique pieces and the embroidered lines that add the details of puddles, splashes, and shoelaces.

I had so much fun making these. They go together quickly and add a bit of traditional whimsy to a coffee table or desktop.

Excellent April Shower Mug Rugs  April 14, 2013

I just adore 2strings series of silhouettes. She can truly capture the precious moments of childhood in her pictures. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow. The pattern templates are her own scanned sketches, and are not manipulated by computer, which makes her pattern so much more special. You should understand the basics of sandwiching, quilting and binding. All in all a great and cute project to practice Free Motion Quilting too.

Since retiring from my teaching career I've discovered that there is life outside of the classroom! I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing.
