A selection of mug rugs—large coasters with room for a favorite mug and a cookie or two—designed by renowned international patchwork artists are included in this project book. Each design has simple step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs; they are small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to give space for creativity. A mug rug is an ideal project for trying out new techniques or even for getting to grips with patchwork, quilting, or appliqué for the first time. There is a basic techniques and materials section at the front of the book to get patch workers off and running, and there are many different designs that can be achieved with various fabrics suggestions and additional techniques provided.
Mug Rugs are a quick quilting fix and everyone seems to be designing new ones all the time. This book has many terrific ideas and I do recommend it for any quilter looking for quick projects that deliver satisfaction.
