October Muggamo

October is here! With it comes frosty mornings and chilly evenings, which means YOU need a mug rug. Thankfully, I have you covered with witches, spider webs and glow in the dark ghosties.

Grab your free mug rug pattern HERE.

What you need:

Five 2 1/2" squares

Two 3 3/8" squares

Two 3 3/8" squares
Mark the diagonal on the wrong side

Side piece:
One 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangle

Back and batting:
One 7" x 10" each

One strip 2" x 36"


Match a black square with an orange square.

Sew 1/4" on one side of the drawn line.

Sew 1/4" on the other.

Cut on the line, press towards black.

Mark the diagonal perpendicular to the seam. Line half square triangle units together with opposite colors.

Sew 1/4" on one side of the drawn line.

Do the same on the other side.

Trim. The 1 1/4" mark on the diagonal of the ruler should be in the center of the hourglass unit.

Rotate and trim to 2 1/2".

Lay out your block.

Stitch into rows.

Then stitch rows together.

Add the side piece.

Baste to batting and backing. Quilt. Bind. Enjoy.

Only two more to go this year! How did that happen. I hope you've been enjoying them. We'd love to see your mug rugs at Quilt and Learn with Patterns By Jen.

Don't miss the next step in our Beginners Unite Quilt Along coming up on Tuesday. We're on week 4. Grab a cup of coffee, one of your muggamo rugs and take a peek. There is plenty of time to catch up. Come join the fun!

Happy Stitching!
