Random It Is

Another round of odds and ends . . .

Remember my recent mouse pad?
Quilted Mousepad
Well here's the quilt that inspired me to make it.
A Typography Quilt
Of course I only saw one process pic of a block, but it was enough! I love the finished quilt by Maureen Cracknell - and the setting for her photo shoot.

Another quilt that caught my eye this week was the Starburst Quilt by Sukie for the Fat Quarter Gang. I'm mulling over some possibilities with this one. Love those large 20 1/2" blocks.
Finished!

I pre-ordered a book a while back and it came yesterday - Tula Pink's City Sampler: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks
It sounded cool, but I had no idea it was actually a sampler quilt project too. I'd barely digested that little fact when I saw Sara of Sew Sweetness post about her upcoming sew along! So how about that? Very tempting!
Sew Sweetness

So it's short and sweet today. I'll leave you with a sneaky peek of my low-volume quilt that is now all quilted  and has just a few inches of binding on.
I'm going to need a name for this one soon, so if you have any ideas, shout 'em out! (And yes, someone forgot to put their walking foot back on after switching gears for a bit. No worries, it was rectified soon!)

Linking up with Really Random Thursday.

I am so looking forward to seeing the as-yet named low volume quilt! And I have the Tula Pink book on order too! I also didn't know it was a sampler book! I am still considering whether I will 'quilt along'!

Toni said...

Very nice looking 'random', Debbie! That book looks interesting. Can't wait for the big LV reveal!

I love both those quilts too! Your mouse pad is a brilliant idea and the low volume is looking great :)

Laurie said...

I have been wondering about that Tula Pink book.... Are the blocks truly put together via templates? That's something I read somewhere I think.....

I am in SUCH a rut it's not even funny. Haven't sewn in at least a week. :( Your post inspires me a bit to get back at it, but now I have to work today and tomorrow. Bummer!

Your quilts are fabulous!! Love your mouse pad too! I am still learning but you are such an inspiration! <3

I got my book yesterday, too. I thought, "It's only a matter of time before someone does a sew along with this!"

I still want your mousemat ;o)

Stella Nemeth said...

Does the mousepad work as a mousepad? Because if it does I've got to make one of those.

Tammy said...

? for quilt name. How about "blue prints for tomorrow"

Cathy said...

I like the low volume peak!

Leanne said...

What beauty you have here. I love the quilt and mouse pad, I love your low volume MCM quilt and I have that book on pre order too.

That low volume quilt looks beautiful, I'm really looking forward to seeing it in all it's glory.

Carla said...

What fun you have been having!!

Your mouse pad is very cool. My Tula Pink book arrived in the mail the other day--I had sort of forgotten I had preordered it. I LOVE it. I'm glad Sara is doing the sew-along. and I like Sukie's quilt a lot. Can't wait to see the unnamed quilt completely finished. You are so speedy.
