Summer Mug Rug Swap!

Carolyn here, your recent swap mama. The DCMQG Summer Swap finished up mid-July and the swaps and treats did not disappoint. The theme this go around was "Mug Rugs." Swappers were randomly assigned to make a mini-quilt varying in size from 4" x 7" to as large as 8"x12". The size is intended to accommodate a mug and a cookie or scone, or other treat. Fabric selection, design, and treat wish lists were all considered by the assigned partner. We had some Instagram teasing going on and the reveals were a delight for all. If you've never participated in any of our swaps, consider joining in the fun next time. It is a great way to make new quilt friends, build skills and step out of your comfort zone. You'll find some of the awesome mug rugs below as well as at #dcmqgmugrugswap on Instagram.

Dolores kicked us off first with this gorgeous paper pieced Kaffe and solids for Lynne.

Lynne then made this hexagonal mug rug for Nisha.
