Tag Archives: zig zag mug rug tutorial
Hey, did you leave a link or two on Manic Monday Linky Party? Go do that now! Also, I found a whole bunch of awesome SALE bundles at JAQS fabrics - like 12 FQs for only $15!!! So go check out Q’s shop!
It’s 10.5″ by 8.5″ finished. I got the idea for this from Crazy Mom’s zig zag quilt tutorial. For this mug rug’s front you’ll need:
- A- 1} 2.5″ x 1.5″
- B- 1} 2.5″ x 1.5″ and 1} 5″ x 1.5″
- C- 1} 5″ x 1.5″ and 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″
- D- 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″ and 1} 10″ x 1.5″
- E- 1} 10″ x 1.5″ and 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″
- F 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″ and 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″ and 1} 2.5″ x 1.5″
- G- 1} 7.5″ x 1.5″ and 5″ x 1.5″
- H- 1} 5″ x 1.5″ and 2.5″ x 1.5″
- I- 1} 2.5″ x 1.5″
- J- 1} 2.5″ x 1.5″
Now, you need to sew those longer strips together. They get arranged in the logical way -
- The two small A and B get sewn together on the long sides
- B and C’s 5″ strips get sewn together
- C and D’s 7.5″ strips get sewn together
- D and E’s 10″ strips get sewn together
- E and F’s 7.5″ strips get sewn together
- F and G’s 7.5″ strips get sewn together
- F’s 2.5″ strip gets sewn to J’s 2.5″ strip
- G and H’s 5″ strips get sewn together
- H and I’s 2.5″ strips get sewn together
Now you need to cut your long strips into 2.5″ long blocks:
Then it’s just a matter of lining them all up and sewing them together. I sew 4 little blocks together, then start sewing them into bigger pieces. But you can do whatever you’re comfortable with.
And here it is, all finished with pretty yellow binding:
And here’s the back, complete with my new small quilt labels from Spoonflower. You can make your own too.
