Fall Mug Rug Swap Received

I got my package last Friday, and I love everything!  Not only are the mug rugs super cute, but she included bookmarks for my son, and quilt magazines! I love quilt magazines!!  She made one for Halloween, and one for Thanksgiving.  Love them both! Look at that ghost!!!

Here are my goodies:

Loved this swap.  Will be hoping to do another soon :)

Fall Mug Rug Swap

Recently I participated in the mug rug swap over at Quilting Gallery.

Fall-Inspired Mug Rugs Swap
I had a BLAST getting to know my partner.  We emailed quite frequently and I feel like I made a new quilty friend!  I went simplistic with my designs, because I wanted them to be cute but usable.  I didn't want the design or quilting to make it unbalanced for holding a mug or cup.

For this swap we had to label the mug rugs, I had a difficult time deciding what to do to label them, but eventually figured it out.  PHEW!  We both decided to make one "halloween" themed, and one fall/thanksgiving themed.  I also included, but forgot to picture, some fabric fat quarters, and a boo crew mini charm pack.  I know it will all be put to good use!

Once I get the pictures off my camera of the goodies I received I will post those!  I got an awesome return gift, and am so thankful for my new friend!
