I'm Michele Foster a quilt designer, author, web developer, pet dog trainer and teacher from Ottawa, Canada. I am the founder of the Quilting Gallery (http://quiltinggallery.com/) web site which I started in December 2007 as a way to combine my passion for quilting and my work life as a freelance web developer. The site has now grown to be a world-wide community-driven site for quilters.
Since 2012, I have been teaching quilt making online with detailed photo tutorials that are available as PDF files. With my Learn to Quilt Booklets, I have taught hundreds of quilters from around the world. I have also designed and published my own quilting patterns that are also available in PDF format for instant download.
My quilting booklets, patterns and tutorials can be found at Mishka's Playground, http://mishkasplayground.com/.
Impress your friends and family with these colourful and easy-to-make Patchwork Christmas Mug Rugs. Each mug rug finishes at 10" x 6". They make the perfect hostess gift, teacher's gift and stocking stuffers for your loved ones. Make up a bunch in advance for last-minute gift giving this holiday season.
The pattern includes two fused applique designs (ornaments and trees) and instructions for using fabric scraps to make your own colourful patchwork fabric. Full-sized placement guides and a separate pattern page are provided. Detailed instructions, hints & tips, product recommendations and colour photos are provided throughout.
The first three items above are used in making the colourful Patchwork Fabric. If you wish, you can use scraps of cotton fabrics for the applique shapes instead of making your own fabric as shown in the samples.
