Pattern Description:

If you were to have just one mug rug pattern in your library then you would not find better than the Ticker Tape mug rug design.

Ticker tape quilt blocks use small pieces of fabric which are applied randomly. This versatile mug rug adds a touch of order to this process to provide a scrap-happy arrangement of squares and rectangles. Suitable for hand or machine stitching, this pattern uses quick fuse applique and a simple quilt-as-you-go approach. All you have to do is choose your fabrics.

You can group fabric by colour, pattern or a mixture of both enabling you to co-ordinate this mug rug with any colour scheme. Or make it seasonal by choosing Autumnal oranges and browns, ice-cream Summer colours, Spring greens or cool Winter blues. Then when the holidays come around hunt out those Halloween, Christmas or 'Flag' prints to create a celebratory mug rug.

And if you're looking for the perfect gift for a man or woman, boy or girl then look no further that this adaptable little mug rug. You can fussy cut some blocks or leave them plain - it really doesn't matter - the crisp style and balanced arrangement will look good whatever fabrics you choose.

So scatter some ticker tape fabric fun today with another pattern from the Patchsmith.
