Musical Notes Mug Rug

Q&A with The Patchsmith

Larri M asked:
Very nice! Was it difficult to applique those tiny pieces & tight corners? This is what would intimidate & prevent me from selecting this project. You did an excellent job.
The Patchsmith answered:
I didn't find it too difficult - I stitched it using a blanket stitch on my sewing machine. However, it would also work very well if you were hand stitching. And, if you find it intimidating then I would recommend hand stitching the notes in place - you have more control over the stitching and where you place them. If I can help in any way, not just for my patterns but for anything to do with mug rugs, applique and patchwork then feel free to email me at
