Spools Mug Rug

Spools Mug Rug

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, use of fusible web

Pattern Description:

Spools of thread growing on a vine! Oh, how I would love to have a "spool vine"! Pretty thread is my weakness, and like many quilters, I have a collection of every color and type imaginable.

This mug rug was originally designed as a quilt block for my "HOME" quilt along wall hanging. When I realized that it was the perfect size for a mug rug I created a separate pattern. The pattern can also be purchased as part of the pair of quilt blocks found in "HOME Quilt Along Blocks 6 and 7".

Mug rugs make such quick little decorative projects and they are just the right size to hold a cup or glass of your favorite something to drink and a small snack. Make one or make a bunch, and toss these colorful spools onto your desk or table top for an instant splash of color. Tucked into a cup or slipped into an envelope and dropped in the mailbox, this mini-quilt makes a lovely gift for someone special.

This project makes up very quickly, and the pattern is very detailed. There are complete instructions with full size templates and a full size layout plan. Helpful photos and diagrams are strategically placed throughout the pattern.
