Heart in Stripes in shades of blue and white. This third heart has the same background as the first and the second (new and recycled fabric I used for the the mug rugs with a white foundation). The various textures of the fabrics are on full display here.
I have added a layer of cotton batting inside the heart to be able to use it as a mug rug. It was hand quilted with a variegated King Tut cotton thread. I also played with a piece of ribbon to make a flower (it is supposed to be a rose, just to say).
A photo tutorial for making Heart in Stripes should be available tomorrow on my web site.
The Three Christmas Trees can be made with either the paper-piecing method or the applique method. Patterns in real size are included for both methods, as well as schemas with measurements in real size and pictures. The mug rug measures 15 x 23 cm / 5 7/8″ x 9″. The coaster measures 13 cm / 5 1/8″ square. Click here for more details.
The pattern for The Three Christmas Trees can be found in my Craftsy Pattern Store.
