Here’s how it works: You register for $15 ($10 of it goes directly to ovarian cancer research); you get some luscious Cherrywood Fabrics to jumpstart your project; you make a mug rug* and send it off to another quilter; you get one in return!

I’ve signed up and I hope you will, too. Registration ends on Friday, August 29 so please sign up now. You’ll have about a month to complete the project and send it off. Complete guidelines will be given.

What’s a mug rug?

* A mug rug is a small quilt—kind of like an oversized potholder—on which to park your coffee, tea or favorite cuppa. It’s a little project. How much time it takes to complete depends on how complex you decide to make it.

You get the idea. Make it special because of The Golden Rule of Quilt Exchanges: Create something as lovely as you’d like to receive. Registration for Beth’s terrific cause ends Friday 8/29 so please sign up right away.
