This easy mug rug is perfect for beginning quilters and sewers who want to try simple piecing without the commitment needed to make a quilt. Smaller than a place mat but larger than a coaster, its small size will allow you to complete it in an evening using your sewing machine and standard presser foot. In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Cut fabric into perfect squares and rectangles.
  • Sew 1/4-inch seams with a basic straight stitch.
  • Sew small pieces together into the mug rug top.
  • Nest seams to reduce bulk.
  • Layer fabric, batting and batting.
  • Whipstitch the seam closed.
  • Finish the piece with simple machine quilting.
Class includes complete, downloaded pattern to make the Easy Patchwork Mug Rug. Once you're finished, you can sit back with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy your new mug rug!

I really enjoyed this video. Nancy's instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the camera was good at doing close-ups where needed. I am pleased with my finished product and look forward to making more!

Basic information presented in a cheerful, friendly way. I especially appreciate the attention to the details of seam matching and whip stitching. The Mug Rug class inspires confidence and gives skills needed to adapt your own ideas for other projects, using this patchwork system. Thank you, Nancy McNally!
