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 Kayla, Wow I am so excited to be swapping and sending overseas. I have my mug rug almost finished and only hope you like it. I have enjoyed making the rug and hope to do more in the future. (((HUGS))) Roz.

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!

Oh, I like that mug rug from California. Reversible is such a great idea for these. I willhave to finish mine up for Shishie sometime after this coming week-end as we have a lot of irons in the fire right now.
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
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.

Kim, that is very cool! did you color it with crayons?
goaskmom/Margie...I got mine today...it's great & my favorite color I'll share a picture tomorrow. Thank you for the "extra's" I love & can use them all! Should I include them in the picture when I post it? Thank you!!
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. I really had fun working on it.
eta ... I blogged about it this morning ... in case you'd like another photo. - KimThis message has been edited. Last edited by: SeeingStars,
