Description

DH and I have been together for 20 years, and I made him a small gift - a quilted 'mug rug' for his desk. He recognised the significance of the pattern very quickly as I thought he would - it's Morse Code, and it says 'coffee'. He's a techno-geek who's been using Morse Code for 40+ years, so it was an appropriate design for him!

As it's coming close to Christmas and others may be looking for gifts for their favourite geeks, I've written up the design as a free tutorial on my textile blog, Yarnosophy. The top uses 2 fat quarters, and so with15" x 15" backing it's a great project to make from stash.

Wow, so clever of you to come up with a pattern he can relate to and know it was made step specially for him. He will undoubtedly use it often.

I did something very similar in a mug rug swap - did my partner's name in Morse code. Perfect gift for your DH!

Great idea, and in addition it makes a good design.

A belated thank you, everyone, for your positive comments! DH uses his mug rug all the time now, so I count it as a success :-)
