This mug rug pattern is based broadly on the goblet quilt block and of course I rather like the idea of wine glasses clinking even if it is coffee that I am sipping! The mug rug measures 6″ by 12″.
two 2.1/2″ brown squares. four 2.7/8″ squares in both brown and yellow and four yellow rectangles 4.1/2″ by 2.1/2″.
Making the mug rug
The half square triangles are made by placing a brown and a yellow 2.7/8″ square with right sides together. Mark a line along the diagonal and sew a seam 1/4″ either side of the marked line. Cut along the line to produce two half square triangle units.
Lay the pieces out with three half square triangles and a brown square for the main part of the goblet, a half square triangle for the stem of the goblet and the two rectangles along the edges. Sew the four squares together to make a four patch unit for the goblet.
Make a second goblet block with the goblet tilted in the other direction so that the goblets qppear to be clinking at the edges. Sew the rectangles to the side of the goblet and sew together the other rectangle with the stem.
Sew the two goblet blocks together. Cut backing fabric and wadding slightly larger than the patchwork. Lay the backing fabric with right side down, then the wadding, then the patchwork with right side up. Quilt to secure the three layers, trim the excess backing and wadding and bind as for a quilt.
