The requirements below are for making both the Patchwork Ornaments and Patchwork Trees mug rugs.

  • Various scraps approximately 3 to 4"
  • One (1) 8" x 11" piece of light weight muslin or broadcloth (inexpensive)
  • One (1) 8" x 11" piece of lightweight fusible woven interfacing (optional)
  • Two (2) 10.25" x 6.25" for appliqué background fabric
  • Scrap of brown fabric for the tree trunks
  • Two (2) 11" x 7" pieces backing fabric
  • Two (2) strips 2.25" x 40" for binding
  • Half yard paper-backed fusible web (such as Wonder Under or Heat’n Bond Lite)
  • Two (2) 10.25" x 6.25" pieces of lightweight fusible woven interfacing or wash away stabilizer
  • Two (2) 11" x 7" pieces batting
  • General quilting supplies (i.e. rotary cutter, mat, sewing machine, piecing thread, etc.)

The first three items above are used in making the colourful Patchwork Fabric. If you wish, you can use scraps of cotton fabrics for the appliqué shapes instead of making your own fabric as shown in the samples.
