Last year I participated in a Mug Rug Swap at Quilting Gallery.  This swap was sooo much fun, I was assigned a person who had given me their preferences (Americana) and I was to make two mug rugs and send them to her!  She didn’t know who she was getting mug rugs from, and I also received two mug rugs from an anonymous person.   Once I received my mug rugs, I was so excited and I still use them today! Quilting Gallery has a new Swap taking place now.  It’s called an ATC Swap, ATC stands for Artist Trading Card, and they are 2.5″ x 3.5″!  This will be such a fun challenge again on such a small format, and to look at the tutorials of people who have already made some, it looks like such a fun challenge. I may use any technique to complete my ATCs. My ATCs must have a backing with my personal information on them and the edges must be finished using a zig zag or satin stitch. The four ATCs that I send to my partner can be a similar in theme or each one can be completely unique. It’s totally up to me.  As long as I make something I would love to receive, I’m sure my partner will like them too. I will post my ATC’s here as I finish them! To read more about his swap or to join, head over to Quilting Gallery.
