Pattern Details

Leaves are turning, and this turkey tom is strutting around the barnyard showing off his feathers! Foolish bird doesn't seem to be aware that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. If he really prizes those feathers he'll run for all he's worth! It's the perfect size to hold a cup and a small snack and this autumn mug rug will add color to any desk or tabletop. The project is constructed with quickly fused applique, so it goes together quickly. The pattern contains five pages of detailed instructions with photos, as well as full size templates for applique pieces and a full size layout plan. For those who might prefer something larger, I've added enlargement instructions for turning this mini quilt into a placement. If you have any questions or comments, please send an email to me at You are also welcome to check out my facebook page at I would love to see photos of your completed work in the completed projects section of this pattern page.

When I retired from a lifetime of teaching in 2007, I was worried that I'd quickly get bored. That concern didn't last long at all. I was thrilled to discover that there really is life outside of the classroom. I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I'm a teacher at heart, so I do try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes. I make myself easily available to my customers, and I respond to all questions as quickly and as thoroughly as I can. Contact Information: Blog:, Facebook Page:, Email:
