Pattern Description:

Make a set of mug rugs using the ancient Yin/Yang motif, changed up with hearts in place of the more traditional black and white circles. Use fusible web to apply the applique shapes to the background pieces and then quilt and bind.

A set makes a great gift for your favorite yoga instructor, or for yourself, as a reminder that with the light comes the dark and vice versa... and learning to accept and understand the lessons that come with each one can bring peace to your soul.

  • 6-1/2" x 8" each


  • Basic sewing and quilting

You Will Also Need:

  • Black, white, and red cotton prints; see pattern for information.
  • Thread
