    This is the only rule. You can do anything you want as long as it is quilt related.

    The only requirement is it must have some quilt related features.

    How would you change it?

    I made it as simple as possible. No limits except it has to be quilt related. How can it be any simpler?

    It has to be fair hence the no show rule.

    The entries have to be posted. So there is info for sending in the entry pics

    And votes have to be done in a way Patrice can count them. We can't have votes posted in 3 differant ways. There can only be one way so nothing gets missed.

    I've tried to keep it as simple as possible. But some things just have to be said.

    That's ok. I did take it as a serious thing. I have people all the time challenge what I post in tutes and such. So I just took it in the same vein. This is shorter than what I started out with!! LOL

    It varies alot I think. The one I just saw posted was 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" but I have seen them all sizes. most of the ones I have seen are usually rectangular but some are square. It is all up to you. I guess the purpose is enough room for a cup and a snack. I've never made any but they sure seem popular.

    Ohhh. Dare I enter? I haven't entered anything before. Hmmm. Yes...I think I will. I do have a question though. is there a specific size that you consider to be "mug rug" size?

    Oops. You just answered this question. I've only made a couple of mug rugs before but they sure come in handy this time of year when the drink cups sweat so much. It will be fun.

    I think you did just fine. It has to be a little long or otherwise you'll have a ton of questions. Direct & to the point!!

    What exactly do you want to know? It can be anything you want it to be. It has to be quilt related of some kind.

    ok more specifically what do you mean by "quilt related features'? give me some examples of what you mean. i cannot even come up with an example because i have no idea what you mean by this statement. are you talking about stitches, it must be a quilt sandwich, it needs to have some patchwork???????? what????????

    i know sometimes when we say things it makes perfect sense to us.....but sometimes not so much to others.

    All I meant was it must be related to quilting,. The reason I said it was because I had someone ask me about mixed media meaning she was going to do an entry that used other things besides quilting.

    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.

    I know that there were comments about the length of your 'rules'... but I don't see on there that it is limited to one entry per member... is that so?

    I debated on that one. I wanted to open at least one contest up to more than one entry. but I was concerned that it would mean some people would get lost in the crowd with just one entry if others posted 3 or more. I could limit it to two entries. I also have to watch that I don't make too much more work for Patrice.

    Since I can't go back and change the first post I am going to leave it with just one this time. But the next contest that is a small project I will allow 2 entries per person. If this one goes over well I will do it again in the near future and can let it be 2 or 3 entries then.

    I think one entry, per person, is very fair.

    Well I can understand when the item for entry is a small thing that it might be good to allow more than one entry. It would also be more pictures to look at and vote for.

    My other concern is will everyone understand that each entry needs to be sent as an individual entry. One entry per email. Other wise it would be too confusing.

    Any time I post there is always someone who is not sure of the rules or those who don't read the rules.
    I know this comes with the territory of hosting. I just want to make sure Patrice isn't overloaded with confusing emails.

    I'll give it some thought as to how to do it if I do indeed decide to allow 2 entries. Time will tell! LOL

    What do you all think about placemats as a contest? And I have been thinking about miniatures. There would need to be some size restrictions on that one.

    I know the small projects are easier for everyone to fit into their schedule. Any other ideas?
