    Thank you so much Marcia and Kim for straightening out the Word and .PDF files for me to show the revision at step # 7! :thumbup: And big smiles from me to everyone for such enthusiastic and kind comments! I hope some of you do make them, because we would love to see pictures of them!!!
    Yes, they would make great door prizes and gifts, etc.

    Now there is another great idea! I LOVE feedsack prints and it would be neat to see them in leaves.

    Yes, they really are a wonderful way to use up scraps of fabric and batting Debbie.

    I tried a couple using thick fleece for batting and that works quite well too. So if you have fleece in prints you can’t really use anywhere else… consider using it as batting, as long as your fabric isn’t so light it would show through.

    sunnymom: I feel special that your first post was on this topic! Thank you! :-D

    Golfer: Congratulations to you and your family and especially your son and his new bride to be. You must be very excited about their upcoming wedding, less than 2 weeks now! I'm glad you liked the leaves and thought they would be good rehearsal dinner gifts, but gosh! 21? I wouldn't have wanted to try to do that many either amongst all the other little uproars that go on before a wedding. ;-) I hope it all goes wonderfully!

Just leave the bottom open and turn under and put the four in it, what u think.......Just love your idea.....nice for gifts at work. I like to do the seasons with a surprise for all at work and this is perfect, thanks for sharing.
    Hey Shar! That is a great idea to make a matching leaf bag to hold all the leaf mug rugs! The pattern blows up bigger quite well. Although you need to be careful to follow the shape evenly, because it is easier with a blown up version to have the leaf lobes come out unbalanced. I found this out when I made a hot pad. I did a hot pad with 2 layers of fleece and it came out very well after I ripped out and redid the wonky leaf lobe. ;)
    You really spoil your coworkers and I bet they look forward to whatever you come up with for each season. You all must be a very friendly group at work. That is quite a wonderful thing to have!

    Yes, I did see Patchgirl's topic about her Leaf Mug Rug with Stem. I was going to answer there when you asked her “Where can I get the pattern…?” but then I saw that you found this topic and therefore the pattern. I still hope she answers on her topic though. :?
    The addition of a stem is nice. I had experimented with that too. But I ended up choosing to post the stemless version, probably because I was working from a real maple leaf and didn't feel I could make the stem thin enough. But, stemless or stemmed, they both are neat. For anyone who would like to see how Patchgirl added a stem, check this topic: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-153746-1.htm

    Lara, I rethought the idea of making 21 maple leaf mug rugs. They are beautiful but very time consuming. Thank you for the well wishes. Yes we are very excited.

    This is so pretty, and I was just looking for something to make my dad for his birthday September 26. I had just got him the perfect card today that had twigs, and little fall leaves around the words. Thank You.

    Yup, Yup, Yup! You can thank Marcia and Kim for that. It was quite a nice surprise when Marcia contacted me and then she and Kim followed through and did it for us all! :thumbup:
    Patrice J helped me a lot too in adding the one change back into the very beginning of the tutorial too, along with mention of where to find the downloads. You might say this is a community effort. Great people here on the QB!

    Thanks for all the positive words and appreciation everyone!

    Deborah, you should be able to download any word document, and save it as a pdf file. i have windows 7 and it has a program to change it over.
