We just had the Spring Mug Rug Swap sponsored by The Quilting Gallery. What is it? Well, you sign up and buy the pattern, usually two or three variations, then you are assigned a partner to swap them with by a specific date. The patterns are courtesy of Amanda The Patchsmith. They are so fun to do it’s a total recycle job since you can use the smallest of scraps! She even had a list of questions to ask our Mug Rug Swap partner check them out here.
My partner preferred creams to white, pastels to bold colors and the list went on. These are the ones I made for her. I used charm squares from the Mary Engelbreit line Basket of Flowers (I know, right?) and some other miscelaneous scraps. I cheated by free motion quilting the butterfly path, they recommended you hand stitch with floss, but lately I can’t see with my glasses!
And these are the ones she sent to me with some goodies. I just love the red, white and blue! Thanks Linda!
Soon maybe we’ll have a Summer Swap!
