Bluebird Mug Rug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, fusible web applique

Pattern Description:

Last week my apple tree was in bloom and a Baltimore oriole became a frequent visitor. Then I saw our resident bluebird sitting among the blossoms as well. The birds in the tree made such a sweet and peaceful scene that I translated it into a mug rug. I've added a photo of the oriole, but you'll have to look very hard to see it.

Mug rugs are not only just the right size for a drink and small snack, but they will also add a bright splash of color to a coffee table or desktop.

The pattern contains three pages of instructions plus full size templates for the applique pieces. A full size layout plan is also included.
