    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.

    If you use a pattern you did not design then you have to give credit to the pattern designer. As in Quilter's Cache or where ever you got the pattern. And remember your entry must not have been shown online anywhere. No FB or a blog as well as QB.

    Thank you Rhonda for all that you put into providing an interesting challenge. Looking forward to this one!

    I, too, first learned of mug rugs on this board. They are so useful.

    Great I hope you win! That is a design my 13 yr old grandson Joey did on EQ5. I have been asked about making his designs into patterns. I haven't yet but I discovered when I wrote the EQ lessons that I can have EQ print out patterns for paper piecing. So I need to take time to do that with several of them. Glad you like it. It is one of my favorites.

    Here are some of his designs I posted on here before:

    I would say Joey understands EQ pretty well. Go Joey!!!

    My favorite is EQ5 but it is 20 yrs old and does come with some issues. It is cheaper and you can find them for sale from time to time on here or on ebay. If you can find a used copy of EQ6 or EQ7 that is good too.
