My top is almost done -- I need to adjust the width, topstitch and do some other tricks. Then print the label and make the back. Then sew all the layers together.
I can hardly wait for a partner and to swap.
I am also thrilled with the participants. It's so exciting.

Hi Mandy,
Looks like you have plenty of international traders. I'm flexible and willing to be matched up with whomever you choose.

I started to design mine yesterday while waiting on simulations to finish running. Wink

Roz - your mugrug is scheduled for pickup on Friday based on the time it took for the last one to get to Trish you should have it in about a week. I have attached the confirmation number from the postal receipt just in case you need it.

I'm still working in Corel Draw right now. I know exactly what design I want to use but have to get it cleaned up a bit first. Not to mention deciding what method to use. I'm waiting for fabric to arrive for the back anyway - bank holiday today so I hope to see it tomorrow!

Well, I stitched my out, squared it up and decided to iron it. Forgot about the polyester thread and melted it all over my rug. Can't believe I did that!!!!!!!

Back to square 1.

mine is basically completed, I have some finishing touches. Hope to mail this week. My husband liked mine so much that he thinks I should make a twin for me.
Question: When mailing international (I saw the post with the customs #), do you have declare the value. How to put a price on love and care? Do you insure it?
Thanks

Hi MoltqltrSmile Your mug rug should almost be there. I did declare it [just as a mug rug] and didn't insure it as it is envelope size. lol, if customs check it they will find it OKSmile

i got my mugrug from seeing stars (KIM). it has a
saturn V rocket, dogwood, Camila Alabama's state flower. Cotton fields, Monte Sano Mountain. and i got a history lesson written on a card how the Saturn V came to be in her town of Huntsville. I didn't use the flash on my camera cause it washed the mugrug out because it's such light fabric. I love it Kim and yes i wish i was there. Thank you so much.

I drew my design with a blue water soluble pen on a white solid fabric. Then used 2 layers of batting, quilted it first with various colors of thread to outline each element, then used colored pencils. Finished it with a layer of fabric medium lightly painted on to seal the color.
This was following the book's instructions, but I think I could have transferred more color if I'd used only 1 layer of batting. It's like trying to write on a cloud. Somehow, even though I kept going over and over an area, it wouldn't get any darker.
I'm happy with how it turned out, although I don't think I'd do a large quilt this way. The book shows a wholecloth Baltimore album quilt. It's stunning!

So glad you like it califgal. Smile I really had fun working on it.

eta ... I blogged about it this morning ... in case you'd like another photo.
