here/) I offered a one to one trade of a spring themed mug rug. This one is going to Constance in CA. It turned out so nice and I literally put it together with scraps and very little time. I had some of the background patchwork already sewn together and was left over from another project. I just added a few moore scraps to bring it up to our 7x10" size requirement. I sketched a tulip and then used that pattern for three spring-y flowers, added leaves and fused them to the patchwork base. I straggle-stitched around the whole thing, outlining each element 2 or 3 times. Love this so-casual look! It's great for those who don't want to 'stay in the lines'! Plus it gives the flowers and leaves some added depth and definition. Enjoy, Constance!
