    Da da da da da dadda da da da da daada dada... happy dance oh the happy dance.. yessirree I am doing the happy dance.

    Nancia those are not mug rugs those are mug holders you cant fool me. a rug is something that lays flat on the ground never once had a seriously bumpy rug honest its true. those mug holders are a work of art. No wonder you participate in the art challenge each month here on the board.. you think like an artist more than a quilter I think. maybe both equally.. grand job young lady grand job. me more traditional here is the one I made tracibug as a side swap..my cartoon piggy...argh its not showing add ap ic l et me try that again.

    those are just wonderful! son daniel was going to grow up to become a pig farmer. he charged 25 cents to enter his room and he was saving it to buy his farm. he started making up plays and puppet shows and inviting the neighborhood, and charging his quarter a head. now he's getting his masters in screen- and playwriting at the university of london. and he won't eat pork. lol may i ask where you found that flying pig fabric? the birdie reminds me of my friend emily. she loves all things from the emerald isle!!

    Love the piggy, especially if it was red like a razorback.

    (We now return you to your regularly scheduled quilting station)

    The pigs are so cute! There are a few adorable pig fabrics out there. I think my favorite is the where where they're all squeezed together and you can barely see their bodies, but they're all making different faces. I forget where I saw that one. I wish I had some of it to share with you ladies now!

    Wahoo I made it in I'm number 42. Really looking forward to this I think the size is really doable. Is there a theme or do we talk to partners about preferences? Lots of ideas running through my head after looking at the pictures of earlier swaps and posts.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    ok a selvage quilt: um if you hit your fabric stash or mine you would find it wouldnt take long at all for say the swirl one or the library one.. I toss them right and left as I dont do tiny things my eyes would flop out on the table if I tried to work them that hard. if you have a stash in theory you could raid it however this is important if you later needed more of one of those fabrics and then had no idea who made it.. trouble. or you could write notes Moda Marble Crimson or such on each of them as you cut them off and pin it to your fabrics. Otherwise it will take you as long as it takes saving them based on how much you quilt. OR you can post can you send me your salvages? see people will do this for you a few here a few there add up. good luck. best you not me!

    I purchased that pigs fly fabric for a memory quilt for a friend who passed from Aids about 20 yrs ago. I just never used the rest .. sorta a memory fabric I guess for me to. I recently sold all the piggys to Auntpigglyn here on the board. it was cute though wasnt it?

    razorbacks? razorbacks? sorry girl its CARDINALS here all the way.. but if you asked my daughter its DUCKS .. I can't wait to get my partner and whip up something sweet or goofy depending on who it is be warned I am as goofy as the next one probably a whole lot more. And I am traditional to the bone myself so your safe with me if you like also. Nelco I am so ready lol she is groaning, trying to set up fifty people is no small task. her swaps are huge like booms almost. bet you money she is getting bugged can I please sign up and she will end up giving in and the numbers will swell monsterously. Dont kill yourself you can always have another one and people can join then girl. those that make it in this one can sign up for the new tablerunner swap that will be posted. Just waiting approval from Patrice to get it up. should be today. see a win win?

    Love those selvage quilts (especially the bookshelf), but I don't think I have enough fabric with selvages or patience! The other pics from members look great. I want to make mine nice and thin and flat....any suggestions on the right type of batting. My partner last time sent two beautiful ones which where super thin - in a good way. My regular warm & natural is too bumpy.

    perfect thin non bumpy batting: fusible. it sticks to your top and back beautifully while your sewing so you can get things really tightly stitched down no bumps. then when you wash it and the fusible is gone you have still a quilt stitched so tightly down that it wont be bumpy

    I never save my selvages. They're just not appealing to me when I look at them lying there on my sewing table.

    To keep my mug rugs flat, I do 2 things. First, I use a low loft batting, the same that I would use for making placemats, which I always have on hand. I usually buy Poly-fil brand for this, but I like Mountain Mist as well, depending on where I'm shopping when I need to buy it. Second, I rarely bind my mug rugs. I usually sew them pillowcase style and then turn them right side out and sew around the edge.

    Oh, I almost forgot what brought me here to begin with! I got this week's special from Joann this morning & they've got FQ's for $.99 each, in store only (online, $1.49, but they only have a few online.) Hmm, I think I need to go to Columbus next weekend!

    @elizabrat - fusible? What? I am a newbie you will have to be more specific. Like a light fusible interfacing? I have that...and your saying 2 layers in between? One for the back and one for the front. And then I can pillow style it together rather than binding (i get that part

    Hi all,
    I'm popping in to say "Hi" and introduce myself to the group. I made the cut and I am looking forward to doing something on a small, fast and fun scale.

    About me: I've participated in the 2011-2012 Quilt for Quilters swap (my avatar is the quilt I made for my swap partner) and participated in the Monthly Quilting Bee Block Swap. Currently I am in playing in the Row by Row swaps, Groups 6 & 7. Feel free to browse my QB albums over at http://www.quiltingboard.com/members...se-u41137.html

    My home is graced with several treadles, including a Davis LAVF with gorgeous decals, a Willcox and Gibbs, plus a few 'heads'. My go-to treadle is my 1926 Singer Red Eye - just love that machine's stitch as well as her sound.

    Looking forward to meeting all of you and getting to know my partner. Come on list!

    Thank you Nelco for being the swap mother.

    best,
    d

    Whigrose, lucky partner you had, that quilt is beautiful. My husband and I just finished restoring a 1901 Singer treadle and it turned out beautiful, haven't used it yet but it looks good. Don't know if these old legs still have the "motion", they're antique too Welcome to the swap....
