what a great beginner project! also a good way to use up those scraps!
four 5x5 squares
one 9 1/4 x 9 1/4 piece for backing
batting 9 1/4/ x 9 1/4
*1/4" seam allowance unless otherwise noted
first you'll need to sew your squares together. press your seams.
since this is for valentine's day, i decided to quilt some hearts. using a piece of paper, cut out a heart that just fits the inside of your mug rug. trace, and sew. you can now use this first heart as a guide to make a few more hearts!(just line it up with your sewing foot and follow along!) TAKE YOUR TIME!! make as many as you'd like, or just "stitch the ditch" around the squares. when i was finished, some of the basting stitches from earlier were visible, so i just removed them with my seam ripper.
need a gift for a teacher?? package with a cute mug(not my ugly rain forest cafe mug!! haha), and a little something sweet!
