Our past pieced patterns have been fairly simple ones, so let's kick it up a notch this week with some curved piecing. Don't forget, the wonderful thing about mug rugs is they provide us an opportunity to master different skills, without committing to a large project. Okay, are you ready for the challenge? There are two quadrant patterns with templates - you will need to make two of each quadrant. Click here to get the first template pattern. and click here for the second template. You will need to make 4 of these blocks. If you carefully cut the fabric along the lines provided, you will have placement guides for your corners and edges.
If you haven't done curved piecing before, here are a few free quilting video tutorials that might help with your curved piecing techniques:

Enjoy making your mug rug and building those quilting skills and have a blessed week!
