Celebration Candles Quilt-As-You-Go (QAYG) Mug Rug


Sometimes it can seem that there isn’t enough time to make handmade gifts or to decorate your table with quilted mats.  But this is not the case. 

Inspired by Washi tape cards, the Celebration Candles mug rug uses a Quilt-As-You-Go method whereby you quilt the mug rug at the same time as stitching the candles together.  It is super-quick and super-easy.

It also means you can hide your ends before adding the backing (no sewing in of those dratted quilting threads).

The flames and wicks shine brightly whether hand or machine stitched.

And sometimes they shine brighter on a dark night-time background....

So, no matter how busy you might be, there is always time to add a touch of brightness to your table with the Celebration Candles Mug Rug pattern.
