    DescriptionSewing is popular with all ages and this series, Love to Sew, focuses on the latest hot trends. The 64 page handy square format gives us room for at least twenty projects, each with simple step-by-step instructions, beautiful photographs, as well as a basic techniques and materials section at the front of the book. Practical yet pretty, a mug rug is one of the latest trends on the sewing and patchwork scene. Basically it is a large coaster with room for your favourite mug and a biscuit or two. Small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to give space to your creativity, a mug rug is an ideal project for trying out some new techniques or even for getting to grips with patchwork, quilting or applique for the first time. This book contains a selection of mug rugs designed by renowned international patchwork artists. Revel in the many different designs that can be achieved with various fabrics and techniques and, above all, have fun making your own mug rug.

    Review quote
    Christa has collected together designs from various artists to present 22 different mug rugs - smaller than a placemat but larger than a coaster. Materials and techniques are fully explained and the book contains all templates and full detailed instructions. A fun book to appeal to all ages and abilities.-East Kent Embroiderer's Guild Not a placemat nor a coaster, the mug rug is just right for you cup of tea or coffee and a couple of biscuits or a spoon. These perfect sized mats will surely find a place in your home. 22 designs are featured each with easy to follow instructions and good photography. All templates are provided and basic techniques are given. The mats have been designed by various artists using quilting and applique techniques. I'm sure you'll find plenty you love. I particularly like Nostalgic Charm and Good Morning by Renate Bieber, Cathedral Windows by Verena Surerus and Pretty in Pink by Sabine Gunther as well as the Pocket Rug by Kerstin Porsch. A lovely book with new ideas and ideal for gift making.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts I must confess I have never heard of a mug rug before, but as many of us sue mugs instead of cups and saucers, this certainly seems like a practical solution to avoiding unsightly ring marks on you furniture. The mug rug is described as a large coaster with room for your favourite mug and biscuit or two. These projects are small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to expand your creativity and get to grips with a new technique you haven't tried before. There are 22 different designs by various artists and all have clear instructions and templates where applicable. These projects would make a quick but personalised gift for a friend or a quick make for your next quilting fair.-Fabrications
