What are you most proud of? Mug rug applique has so many uses. It adds a special touch to simple patch blocks. Here I have added hearts from my Half-Hearted Mug Rug to a split nine-patch block (tutorial by 'She Quilts a Lot' (http://shequiltsalot.com/project-48-quilt-nine-patch-block). However, it would work equally well with a nine-patch, churn dash, snowball block. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Create a background block which has squares measuring at 3.5" - a simple nine-patch would work well and then lay your applique shapes on top. Play around - place them straight, place them at an angle or have them all pointing inwards. The choice is yours.
