The Canadian Flag has had a maple leaf as its emblem since the 19th century whilst quilters have been using the maple leaf to add interest to bed quilts for just as long. This pattern celebrates both these elements to create a mug rug that will look good on any table or desk. This Patchsmith pattern is suitable for beginner and experienced quilters alike with its easy patchwork and quick-fuse applique. Suited to both hand and machine sewing, this pattern comes with easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full-size applique templates - all you have to do is choose your fabrics You have the option of creating two different versions of sidebar for this mug rug, both of which can be constructed from scraps of fabric. Shown here is a Canadian Flag red-and-white version together with a golden embossed Maple Leaf design. But you don't have to stick to these colours - autumn tones or spring greens would look just as good. Why not try both versions in different colours - you will then have a mug rug to keep for yourself and one to gift to a friend or relative?
