All of you are aware I am sure, that I am an avid Cherry House Quilts fan! To have her speak at the KCMQG meeting last night was truly inspirational. I stumbled upon her quilts after taking an "I Do" class at Harper's Fabric and Quilts. I enjoy making her quilts and truly enjoyed hearing her speak. It is off to her workshop this morning and while I have made the quilt she is teaching I know I will gain from this experience.

Mug Rug Swap on flickr

I joined a great little swap on flickr for Mug Rugs....these are miniature placemats that you can set a coffee or tea mug on and maybe a cookie or brownie. It was my first swap and what fun it was.

This was my creation. My secret partner was "Lollydo" and she listed her favorite things as, the color orange, any shade, Halloween, circles, and she loves dogs, So I stalked her profile and this was what I ended up with.

This swap was so much fun and the members of the swap were very vocal and active which made it that much more enjoyable. The rugs were small and not too terribily time consuming so it was a great experience.

They will start another swap toward the end of October! Take a chance and join. Next post I will show you what my secret partner made for me!
