Pattern Details

This mug rug is as pretty as a picture with its large butterfly floating above a simple patchwork background. Perfect for Mother's Day or as a gift for a friend, relative or teacher, all that is needed area few scraps of fabric and an hour of your time. With enough room for a mug and a cookie this functional mini quilt is a great way to use up scraps of fabric or a couple of charm squares. The central band adds an elegant touch and provides the perfect spot for some hand-stitching or personal quilting. As for the butterfly - you do not need to stick to a 'Red Admiral', 'Holly Blue' or 'Cabbage White' - there is no end to the combination of fabrics and colours. You can create your own unique species of Butterfly from shabby-chic (as shown in the tan/gingham example) to bright and bold (as shown in the red/blue mug rug). Alternatively you could make a coaster using one 5" charm square and the butterfly applique. This pattern comes with easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full size templates. So join the Patchsmith today and create your very own Butterfly Patch. Note: This pattern was updated in March 2017 to include templates to create a 6” Butterfly block (finished size) – a lovely addition to any sampler quilt or small project. This pattern is for personal use but permission is also granted to make this item to sell provided the item is handmade by you and you credit the Patchsmith for the design. No mass production allowed. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Mug Rug size before quilting: 9.5" x 5" Butterfly Block size: 6.5" (unfinished)

I am the Patchsmith. I patch, applique, sew and quilt. I have been creating a life of fabric, fun and friends for many, many years. I believe a pattern should be easy to follow, with clear diagrams and full-size templates. Value is also very important to me - both in terms of fabric wastage and to the buyer. Patchwork is about sharing and that is why all my patterns are priced for everybody to afford. To contact me visit my blog ( and click on 'About the Patchsmith' or email me at
