    thanks for posting the link. I won't be participating but I found a couple of nearby shops I didn't know about. I'll read more on it.

    Thanks for the link! that does sound like fun. Maybe I can do that some time, when I get caught up on my projects! I love the idea! I also like the list of all the quilt shops. I'm going to mark that site.

    Looks like your doing a great job! I started a quilt top in the same pattern as the top pic, grandmothers flower garden, lets's see, I think about mid to late 70's!! I still have the pieces, so maybe someday...., if the fabric hasn't rotted!!! [​IMG] No, it's still good. I keep it protected. It's in the cedar chest.

    Well Ladies, my mug rug is almost Finished!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] And, I fm quilted it!!!! It looks "rustic", If you know what I mean!! [​IMG] I am working on the binding now, and then, all done! It took me all day to fmq it. Just with machine issues, tension issues, and long breaks!! I will take a pic, and then when my recipient receives it, I will post. I wasn't real happy with it at first, but it is growing on me. It wasn't what I had in mind, and don't look to closely! ! [​IMG]

    Rosie, I'm not good at hand quilting either! Everything I did on this small little mug rug was a new technique for me. You might call it my experimental piece! I did so enjoy making it. I would love to have the time to make some more. But lots of catching up to do around here. My summer is going to get pretty busy for a while starting next week. So I will need to put it all away until I can get to it again!!! At least for a couple of months!

    Can we go ahead and get ours mailed out as soon as we are ready, or are we going to mail all at the same time? Mine is ready!!!

    Yes, mail them when your ready, the mail takes different times so we were never all going to get them on the same day!
    I will post mine on Monday.

    I wasn't sure if we were waiting until the 15th and then mailing them on the same day. I knew it would be different delivery dates. I will get mine out tomorrow!!
