    jyllybean I saw your Lone Star quilt on your blog and it is absolutely gorgeous! Is it all batiks? I bought a similar pattern and was thinking of using all batiks.

    Yes, it is all batiks. It's still not finished, though! It's a special one that's going to go on the wall, so I'm going to send it out to be quilted.

    I love it! I want to make one to go on the blank wall behind my couch, but have to decide on a color scheme. I actually bought a Dahlia pattern from Amazon someone here recommended.

    Just sent my info to join the swap. I've never done a mug rug swap but it looks like bunches of fun! Since others on here shared their likes I thought I'd share some of mine. I don't like pastels much. I like vibrant colors that stand out. I also love fall/earthy colors too....yellows, reds, greens, oranges. And I LOVE owls and angels :-) I'm so looking forward to seeing all of the creativity that comes from all you gals.

    I have been practicing making mug rugs and so far, I am not happy with any of my creations. But I am hoping to get better by the time I get my partner's name. I think I will send all the practice ones to her, too just to give her a laugh!
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Practice does make it better, But there is no perfection required in this swap. You do the best you can and it is all good. We are not here to judge your work. As the old saying goes “ we are our own worst critic”
    If get I 2 more to sign up there will be 90....WOW!!!!!
    I do ask that you be patiencewhile I get all the partners out…

    Nelco, I feel for you with this many swappers! So far I have 3 signed up for my home decor swap. (Insert shameless plug....come on over! http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...ml#post5772233 ) I'm happy to see so much participation here though! Mug rugs can be so easy or so complicated, so this is a very fun swap!

    Sandy, if I got a box full of mug rugs out of this, I think after I finally finished laughing about it, I might have to go hand them out at one of our many local assisted living facilities. If you don't want to ship them all, but you want to make some people happy who are very unlikely to notice your flaws, that's an alternative for you.
