“Run, Turkey, Run” Thanksgiving Mug Rug

from 2strings
(7) Name: 'Quilting : “Run, Turkey, Run” Thanksgiving Mug Rug
“Run, Turkey, Run” Thanksgiving Mug Rug
“Run, Turkey, Run” Thanksgiving Mug Rug

Pattern Description:

Leaves are turning, and this turkey tom is strutting around the barnyard showing off his feathers! Foolish bird doesn't seem to be aware that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. If he really prizes those feathers he'll run for all he's worth!

It's the perfect size to hold a cup and a small snack and this autumn mug rug will add color to any desk or tabletop. The project is constructed with quickly fused applique, so it goes together quickly.

The pattern contains five pages of detailed instructions with photos, as well as full size templates for applique pieces and a full size layout plan. For those who might prefer something larger, I've added enlargement instructions for turning this mini quilt into a placement.
