April 14 – Mug Rugs are the Guilders’ Goodies

Apr 09, 2014|Guilder Goodies|

Here is the Supply List for “Mug Rugs” (9:00 am on April 14)

Supply list as a word.doc

A Mug Rug can be called a “snack mat” and is a mini-quilt that is larger than a coaster but smaller than a placemat, perfect for a cup of coffee and a snack, or a glass of wine and some crackers. Most Mug Rugs are about six by nine inches in size, but you can decide to do it smaller or larger.

There will be several patterns that you can choose from, some are simple strip piecing while others are appliqued. It’s your choice

Materials List:

Sewing machine

Rotary cutter, mat, rulers

Threads, scissors etc. that you would need to cut out and sew a quilted piece.

Fabric:

A main fabric that is at least 7″ x 10

Backing – 7″ x 10″

Batting -  7″ x 10″

If appliqueing then bring various scraps that would be suitable for either an Easter theme or Spring theme – pinks, blues, greens, yellows and would look good on your main front piece.

Six 7″ x 1 ½” rectangles  that compliment your main fabric

Fusible webbing for applique (8″ square should be enough)

Material to bind the rug – (2.5″ x 32″)

Any lace, rickrack etc. you might want to add as embellishments – no buttons as your mug has to sit on this.

Any additional scraps you might want to do different borders in – they need to be at least 10″ in length.

Come on out and make the perfect Easter or Spring gift… you might be able to get two made!
