    I know that there were comments about the length of your 'rules'... but I don't see on there that it is limited to one entry per member... is that so?

    I debated on that one. I wanted to open at least one contest up to more than one entry. but I was concerned that it would mean some people would get lost in the crowd with just one entry if others posted 3 or more. I could limit it to two entries. I also have to watch that I don't make too much more work for Patrice.

    Since I can't go back and change the first post I am going to leave it with just one this time. But the next contest that is a small project I will allow 2 entries per person. If this one goes over well I will do it again in the near future and can let it be 2 or 3 entries then.

    I think one entry, per person, is very fair.

    Well I can understand when the item for entry is a small thing that it might be good to allow more than one entry. It would also be more pictures to look at and vote for.

    My other concern is will everyone understand that each entry needs to be sent as an individual entry. One entry per email. Other wise it would be too confusing.

    Any time I post there is always someone who is not sure of the rules or those who don't read the rules.
    I know this comes with the territory of hosting. I just want to make sure Patrice isn't overloaded with confusing emails.

    I'll give it some thought as to how to do it if I do indeed decide to allow 2 entries. Time will tell! LOL

    What do you all think about placemats as a contest? And I have been thinking about miniatures. There would need to be some size restrictions on that one.

    I know the small projects are easier for everyone to fit into their schedule. Any other ideas?

    I think both minis and placemats are good ideas.

    I am new to quilting and want to learn and challenge myself. I hate to appear stupid but what is a mug rug? Is it a coaster for a coffee cup?

    there are no stupid questions just questions you don't know the answer to. I hadn't heard of them either til I saw them on here. They are bigger than a coaster but the same idea. The purpose is to have something big enough to set a cup on and room for a snack beside the cup. THe size and shape is up to you and the style techinique etc canbe anything you want.

    You can type in mugrugs in the search window above to find threads on here where people have made mugrugs.

    A feature is just an aspect of quilting.. Maybe the style is applique or pieced. Maybe they used origami paper and added a paper pieced fabric flower to their origami paper base. It just needs to be something that says quilt when you look at it. It doesn't have to be a quilt but something that uses a quilt technique whatever that is to you.

    You can use anything you want to make yours. It can be pieced or applique or paper pieced or collaged or anything you like. It just needs to fit in the quilt catagorie somehow.
