    In September I was looking for a lug a mug pattern, found your site and downloaded the instructions for your September BOM. I now take my mug in its lovely new holder to both quilting clubs I belong to and to our local SWRI group meetings. We want to give members of the Fife SWRI patterns for lug a mugs and I said I would contact you and ask if you had any objections to our copying your pattern and giving copies to our members. I do hope you will say yes because its the best pattern I’ve seen and far superior to the last one I did! If you do give us permission to use the pattern it will be made clear to our members that it originated in Canada – as, of course, did the WI!

    • Hi Elaine, I emailed the Lug-a-mug pattern writer, Diane Hogan. She gives you permission to share the pattern with your quilt group. Here is what she wrote in her response:

      “Wow! I have absolutely no objections to anyone using the mug carrier pattern or any other BOM pattern!! I actually searched the Internet for mug carrier patterns, found several, and basically took the parts that I liked and modified the pattern until I had one I liked! Nice that she asked permission to use the pattern. Diane Hogan”

      So, there you have it. Thanks for the feedback about the pattern. Send me pictures of your completed Lug-a-mug and I will share them with Diane.

    I recently joined the Limestone Quilters Guild and I am trying to do the Block of the Month – the Cathy Price Quilt pattern.
    I am not able to find the posting/link to get the two patterns that it was said were posted already. The patterns were the Lone Starburst and one other one.
    Could you please advise me of the link/address.

    Thank You Kathy
