is your templates the correct size or do we have to enlarge them they seem small for an 8 1/2 by 4 mug rug...I could be wrong thanks email@example.com thanks
I guess by the time you add your borders etc it will be bigger....what is the size finished...sorry for being such a bug just purchased a couple of your mug rugs very cute, want to do more of what you have. thanks
Hi Maggs,The template should print to the correct size - there is no need to enlarge. On my later patterns there is a print-check box but on the earlier ones there isn't. However, there is an easy way to check the print size - measure the outer box on the applique sheet - it should match exactly with the mug rug size stated on the front page of the pattern i.e. the outer box on Valentines Hearts should measure 8.5" x 4.5". Mug rugs vary in size and can seem small especially if you make one after making larger quilts. If I can help in any way then please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment here and I will respond. Regards, Amanda
The 'outer box measure' applies to the earlier patterns that do not have a print-check-box on the applique sheet. One day I hope to get around to updating the earlier patterns and adding the print-check-box.
I loved the pattern, but after making it the first time I decided that I wanted it wider. I simply added another row of patchwork blocks and re-centered the hearts.
This is an excellent idea. You could also enlarge the hearts on the print screen by selecting 150% in the 'custom size' box (in the Page Sizing and Handling section) and printing just the applique page. The whole page wont fit on one sheet but you will get a whole heart to trace and use.
I love this it is so pretty can't wait to make one.
Love this little quilted piece of Art :)
