    I tried to post them all in one message and crashed my computer.
    Here is the lady bug I got from abdc:

    I hate that you can't really make out the details. She has dimensional eyes and little thread tentacles, and her wings lift up! So sweet!

    I didn't realize until I looked at them all together that I had bound 2 of them in the same polka dots! DOH!
    You're too nice!
    You have also been a great partner--all your future partners will be lucky to swap with you!

    I received my rugs from jaciqltznok, I would love to see a tut on this process. I love the colors and the process of altering the fabric. Thank you Jac! By the way has anyone ever made a quilt out of the kit you sent me. If so I want to meet them!

    Abd, glad you got the mug rug. I have been loving curved piecing.

    Will the next swap be mug rugs ... or something else? I like the altered and embellished idea; we can use imaginations.

    Just passing through, I would like to know how you all made them so flat! and making the round binding. I made the circles, put the pieces together,but they still didn't come out right. another thing for me to learn!!

    My first one came out kinda' bowl shape but after that they were better ... and flatter. The flattest one was the one where I sewed right sides together leaving an opening, then turning right side out and stitching the opening. They were really fun to make and I'm looking forward to the next swap. Join us!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I noticed that I had to ease in some of the bias binding, making sure not to get it too tight. They still seemed curled up until the point where I turned the binding to the back and hand sewed it. Once finished, they seemed to lay flat. I think true bias binding is key...or else the binding won't form to the curve and would pull the edges out of whack.
    The one that I sewed RSF and turned laid flat, but wasn't truly round. It reminded me of the what the wheel must have looked like when the cavemen first made them.
