Gwinnett Quilters' Guild

Mug Rugs


We’ve come up with a new project ! Mug rugs! How easy can it get, right? Gwinnett Senior Services were thrilled when we asked if they could use mug rugs.

So here are the details. The mug rugs should be no bigger than (approximately) 5”x 8”. Seasonal colors are fine, or colors for everyday use. Embroider them, don’t embroider them, use fancy stitches or not. The design is up to you.

We will collect the mug rugs on Tuesday, April 20, at the same time as our Cannon Cause collection for April.

The pattern below will be in the newsletter and on the website. Please do not feel like you have to use this pattern. It is only for convenience. You can find this and many other patterns on Pinterest. How you do it is up to you.

The pattern below uses (3) 5” x 5” (charm squares) pieces of fabric. The finished mug rug is approximate 4.5” x 6.5”.
