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.

10 Mini Quilt Designs for the Autumn Season
Autumn is the season of warm, cosy colours and fun celebrations. Bring that season into your home quickly and easily with this collection of autumnal Halloween and Thanksgiving mug rug patterns.
Within the pages of this book you will find ten mug rug designs themed around Halloween and Thanksgiving. (There are actually twelve designs as the Ghostly Duo and the Moonlit Cat come with an alternative design each.) There is also a Primitive Pumpkin coaster - perfect for that glass of Halloween punch!
Each design can be created using little more than scraps of fabric enabling you to play with colour and pattern whilst creating something functional and decorative for your home. Perfect for those times when you need a break from a larger quilting project or when you need a last-minute 'thank you' gift for a friend, relative, teacher or colleague.
All the mug rugs are large enough to hold a cup and a slice-of-pumpkin-pie but they don't have to be purely functional, they can double up as a piece of fabric art to display on the wall in the hall or above your work desk.
The designs include:
A Quilt-as-You-Go mug rug (suitable for all-year-round fun)
Coffee and Pie
NOTE: The 'Moonlit Bats', 'Primitive Pumpkin', 'Moonlit Cat' and 'Ghostly Duo' designs are available from my Craftsy shop as individual patterns. But even if you have already purchased these patterns you will still be getting excellent value for money with another six new designs included in this book.
The booklet includes help and advice on fabric choices, quick-fuse applique and binding methods. Each pattern uses quick fuse applique and/or simple patchwork and each design is presented as a stand-alone pattern, enabling you to print just the pattern you are working on, saving you ink and paper. The easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full size applique sheets will guide you as you make these functional mini quilts.
So cosy up and join with the Patchsmith to patch a life of fabric, fun and friends.
