Reversible BowTie Mug Rug

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I had fun with the channel quilting. I haven't quilted anything big, and I'm a bit anxious about quilting the BOM quilt, when it's time. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'd like to find a pattern that has a rectangle/square for the center piece. I think it would look better. BTW I found several bow tie tutorials online. Google is my friend.

What you will need

  • The black and white fabrics are Kona. The prints are madras plaid
  • and another cotton print I've had for ages.

Q&A with mo.sews

tomib asked:
What size is this? Looks great
mo.sews answered:
tomib.. It was pretty big... I'm guessing around 12" square finished. You could put a mug on each corner. My daughter's "Mug Rug to the Stars" is the same size, and is posted in my projects with a mug ON the mug rug.

Great job Mo!
mo.sews answered:
Thanks Pieceful1! I'm working on a idea for a follow-up (incorporating the bow-tie & the wild plaids he is so found of wearing! lol) He calls them his "Party/Holiday Plaids" and is getting the whole family into this trend!
