Half-Hearted Mug Rug and Block

Half Hearted Mug Rug Pattern
It is odd really – how we start off doing one thing and it leads on to another.  So it was with today’s block, Block 44 'Half Hearted' .......  
Block 44 - Half Hearted
The idea came to me whilst I was paper-piecing Block 43 (Patriotic Heart).  I thought how lovely an appliquéd heart would look using two different fabrics.  And it does look lovely in many different colourways.

From there it was just a short jump to a new Patchsmith pattern – the Half-Hearted Mug Rug pattern

Which just goes to show that if you do things you love then the ideas will follow.

    1. It was fun Christine - I had to stop myself at two although I did make a few extra heart blocks - I know they will come in handy for projects.
