For our winter challenge we will be partnering up with another guild member and swapping mug rugs! Don't know what a mug rug is? Well take a gander at some of these beauties for inspiration.
Here's how it's going to go:
Write your name on an index or recipe card, followed by your interests, likes, dislikes, etcetera. We all know you like quilting but do you like coffee? Tea? Wine? Let 'em know. Hate the color purple? Adore giraffes? Dr. Who? Put that down, too. Don't care and want to be pleasantly surprised? Mention that on there. We want to get to know you!
BRING THIS CARD TO THE MEETING NOVEMBER 14TH, please. We will exchange our cards and partner up at this time. In the event there is an odd number of participants, we will join up a group of three.
You will have until the December 12th meeting to complete your mug rug.
A mug rug should be big enough to fit a cup and a cookie. A pint and a pastry. A mug and a muffin. I think this should be roughly 7x7 or 8x6. It doesn't have to be square or rectangular, though- get creative with your shape if you want. This is an excellent opportunity to try out a foundation pieced block, hand quilting, or applique- all those techniques that are less daunting on a smaller scale. Binding isn't a rule but the edges must be finished.
This is an optional swap, so please only participate if your heart is in it.
Have fun sewing and getting to know your fellow guild members!
