    BYC is not responsible for transactions outside the BST area of the forum. All swaps are at the swappers risk and in no way will the Staff be involved in disputes. All disputes should be handled privately as per BYC Rules. No feedback and no feedback threads are allowed in these swaps. Do not report issues with the swaps using the report button. Please resolve all issues privately with your swap partner and/or the the swap originator. BYC discourages all transactions outside the regular BST area. Non monetary swap transactions are only allowed in this forum and only in a Swap thread. You must be 18 or over to participate in any swap, trade or any other transaction on BYC. All BYC Rules apply.


    For this first half of the swap we will be making a mug rug of your choice, so you are the artist. A mug rug usually accommodates a mug and a cake or cookies. A mug rug is a mini quilt varying in size from 4” x 7” to as large as 12” x 8". I would encourage you to try and stay away from "Holiday" themes as most of us would like to see and use our MR's everyday of the year and not just for one specific day. You will be randomly assigned a recipient of your MR. It's a secrete don't tell who you have. When the time comes you will be given the address of your MRer. If you are given a person that is across the seas and you have never shipped overseas please let me know and I will walk you through the customs forms via PM. If you do not want to ship over seas please let me know via PM. Need MR ideas Craftsy.com is a good one to use just put mug rug in the search bar and be amazed at the ideas, this is just to get the juices flowing you DO NOT HAVE TO USE THIS SITE, be creative design your own unique MR. Or just try a new technique one MR swap I did a tiny patchwork quilt so the ideas are endless. Remember when you sign up you are being assigned a person and that is a commitment so please do your best to complete the MR swap. If you have problems that are just getting in the way please let me know. ASAP. Fenrosie will be the one assigning our swap partners so look for a PM from her. The person receiving the MR will be the one to post the picture and who it is from.

    When signing up please post your likes/dislikes color preferences etc just to help your swapper.


    Due date for the MR's will be the week of May 15th-19th, that means your MR has to be mailed no later than that week, earlier is great!!! Due date has been moved to the week of June 5th so you will have to mail your MR's June 5-9th

    Now the second half of this Challenge is:

    You need to complete a quilt top from some of the blocks from past swaps or finish one of your long forgotten projects or a new project it's up to you. This due date will be July 22nd.
    remember to post pictures we love pictures.


    You do not have to do both parts of this challenge to be apart of the challenge. But more the merrier. I think I will supply a prize to the one who completes the most tops.

    So let the quilting begin!!!
