    Will all 4 mug rugs go to the same person, or to 4 different people?

    Just trying to get an idea as to the postage costs before officially signing up. Thanks.

    So, when you say round.....is that a strict requirement. Can it be hexagon, egg shaped, oval, etc?

    Round is the only strict requirement. You can do a hexie or oval inside the round.

    Moonrise, this was my thought also. I have some blocks that were demo'd at my Guild, but that I never went any futher with -- they might work for this.

    Here is my newbie question: Do we wait until we're matched with our swap partner and see what their tastes are, or can we make all the creative choices and just hope they like them?
    I ask because I had what I think is a neat idea about what I will do with the four circles I'm making...wanted to get started before the creative juices dry up.

    Did someone say no orphan blocks, I am almost ready to make a quilt with all mine. The defect ones that just seem to go someplace. This swap may give me an opportunity to use my new circle ruler that is still in wrapper from Christmas.

    Start now working on whatever you want, this is an opportunity to do something you want to try, make sure they are all 4 different in color and design. Have fun!
