The Blue House – Pattern for mug rug and coaster

This is my latest pattern for mug rugs and coasters. This is a Blue House surrounded by Spring flowers starting to bloom. I had fun adding the flowers, but they are optional.

The Blue House can be made with the appliqué method or the paper-piecing method. I stitched the appliques by hand, but this could be done with a sewing machine. The binding was sewn with a sewing machine on top and by hand on the back. Of course, the binding can entirely be done by machine. You can see examples for both methods in the pictures (mug rug: appliqué; coaster: paper piecing).

The pattern is available in my Craftsy Pattern Store. To make these items I used both new and old fabrics. They are cotton, except for the dark blue that is a polyester. They would also look great if made with only quilting cotton. For more details about this pattern, just click here.

Downtown Houses – Block 8 with a pattern

This house is high in colors. The door, particularly exuberant, attract the eyes. Strangely, the door frame and the window frames are of different colors. But, as the various colors of the house are reflected in the garden, the whole creates a view the passerby enjoy to see.  The flower pot in the kitchen window announces that this is a happy house.

The pattern is available in French and in English in my Craftsy Pattern Store. This pattern has 7 pages and includes instructions about cutting the appliques, a guide for positioning the appliques, patterns in actual size and pictures showing the embroidery stitches.
