One Block Mug Rugs

There’s a new book in town that will turn ANY 6” patchwork, embroidery or applique block into a fun and functional mug rug – it is the One Block Mug Rugs pattern book. 

If you can afford just one mug rug pattern book then this is the book to buy.  It contains ten sidebar designs that will go with any 6” block of your choosing.

And, to get you started it also comes with easy instructions for the seven 6” blocks featured in the book.

But you don’t have to stop there – how about turning The Splendid Sampler bonus blocks (free for a limited time) into mug rug gifts .....

The Column Sidebar added to The Splendid Sampler Flip Flop Block

Scallop Sidebars added to The Splendid Sampler Matthews Block

The Splendid Sampler Derby Day Hat gets a Heart filled Sidebar.

or you could turn any one of the thousands of free patterns available on the web into a useful mug rug mini quilt.

This bee block looks perfect buzzing between the Bee Hive Sidebars

The options are endless with this versatile pattern book.  Especially as the One Block Mug Rugs book is only $9.99 and available for immediate download from my Etsy Store .

It is also available in paperback format via Amazon.  

So join with me and find out just how much fun mug rug making can be.  


  1. Oh my golly... this is such an awesome idea, Amanda! I love how you can turn any 6" block into a mug rug! I am smittenwith your skinny US flag and skinny bee hive!

    1. Thank you Susie. You have picked the two patterns that are also available individually. I am having so much fun with this book and the many sew-alongs blocks available. Did you see Lori Holt is starting a Christmas SAL in a fortnight?

  2. I need your help. I ordered and paid for a Mug rug pattern and can’t find where to download it. It’s the ice cream sundae.

    1. If you send me an email, letting me know where you purchased the pattern I will then be able to locate the order and send it through to you. My email is in 'The Patchsmith' above.
