Q&A with The Patchsmith

K Lee 2Strings asked:
This is one of my favorites of all of your designs. I love your modern flowers and leaves, too, and the butterfly is such a great addition, especially set between the two little strippy sections. I've been wanting to have a nice, long visit with you, but this is the only way I know to contact you. You are the person who inspired me to start designing mug rugs, and that has turned out to be so much fun. I can't seem to stop - just one idea after another, faster than I can sketch them out. Your style is wonderful. I've actually tried to imitate the style, but it simply doesn't turn out well at all for me. I think we all have our unique ways of looking at the world and expressing ourselves. I have also been wanting to thank you for the encouragement you've given me with compliments now and then. I'd love to get to know you better because I know I'd like you enormously. :)
The Patchsmith answered:
We are destined to be friends! I can be contacted on thepatchsmith@gmail.com. I too find I have more ideas than I can handle. Plus I am SOOOOOOOO addicted to these little quilts - they brighten my desk, my worktable, my coffee table - in fact, any surface I can lay them on!

Thank you. This mug rug sits on my sister's desk at work - she loves the colours.
