Half-Hearted Split Nine-Patch

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.

Q&A with The Patchsmith

Marilyn Bowser asked:
I would like to use this pattern to make & donate to our silent auction @ our quilt show, plus a mug rug to enter @ our St. Fair of Tx & later win or lose I would sell it on ebay. I am a 75 yr old widow & sew things to supplement my SS income.
The Patchsmith answered:
Hi Marilyn, All my patterns are for personal use but permission is also granted to make the items to sell provided the item is handmade by you and you credit the Patchsmith for the design wherever possible. I think it sounds like a great idea and I wish you well with the silent auction and the Fair. Kindness Amanda
