Dear Dad :: Bow Tie Mug Rug


We had so much fun with our Mother’s Day series (We Love Moms) we thought it only fair to follow up with a fun little series for Dads as well! Father’s day is only 4 days away, so if you’re still wondering what to make for dear dad, stay tuned for some quick, easy and lovable last-minute projects!

Kicking things off is a cute little mug rug by Project Designer, Jackie White. Giving a store bought tie is an old stand-by… but this year, why not make your own and give dad’s coffee mug a manly landing spot on the kitchen table;). We’re loving this easy design and think that you will too!

About Jackie:
Jackie is a quilt artist that has had her quilts juried in Canadian and American Shows. She started off in traditional quilts with her first quilt being a Trip Around the World. From that traditional quilt, Jackie made a few more bed quilts, but soon got tired of following patterns.

Jackie loves doing her own thing, not following the rules and wanted her quilts to pop. She disliked that they laid flat and that’s when her 3 dimensional work was born. She hand dyes most of her own fabric. Jackie now designs art quilts using original 3D technique that literally makes the objects stand out on the background. She has also started writing a column for the quarterly magazine for the Canadian Quilting Association. Her articles take on a humorous approach to quilting.

Jackie enjoys teaching others about her techniques and encourages them to explore their creativity.
