Maple Leaf Mug Rugs or Coasters pattern is well autumn not really here yet, but I love this time of year so much that I start our Fall decorating right after Labor Day. So let’s look at a bit of this pattern now, which will actually have some adaptations depending on what you really want to do in using this very interesting pattern.
Maple Leaf Mug Rugs or Coasters pattern
This Maple Leaf Mug Rugs or Coasters pattern is by buzzinbumble.com Since I cannot show anything I’m presently working on, I thought it would be fun to post this tutorial for making Maple Leaf Coasters and Mug Rugs. I wrote it a couple of years ago for The Quilting Board and even though it is beginner level, people seem to really like it. The basic idea can be used for any number of things. I’ll be making cookie coasters next.
Half the fun of making these little maple leaves is digging through your scraps, picking out fabrics you like and then seeing how they turn out as a leaf. These are a really simple and quick project and they look great as table decoration when not in use. We especially like the coaster size, but they are neat done up larger as mug rugs and even larger as hot pads too.
I like the versatility that this pattern gives us when making certain uses, for example, think about making it for general use in the kitchen, bathroom, and also as an applique for some pillows.
My idea on the pillow is to use the base pattern of the log cabin and put an applique of this Maple Leaf Mug Rugs or Coasters pattern right in the center! What a wonderful idea, don’t you agree? that’s what I’m going to do.
Love the stitched flower centers.
