A Whole Lot of Randomness

It is now safe to reveal that the quilt I made for the Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap Group {see here} has arrived safely at its destination to Karin/KarinKajsa in SWEDEN! And yesterday, I received my little quilt from Tiina/Cottilello, who lives in LONDON! Lovely. As is my little quilt . . .
It is hand-quilted, and the center is from a sweet travel panel. Thanks, Tiina!

A few things of note from the hectic week past . . .

7 Ways to Keep Track of Pieces When You Sew from Nicole at Mama Love Quilts (oh yeah, and my  method may have been mentioned) . . .

Several projects from the For the Love of Solids2 swap {mine included} were featured by Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy, who is host of the swap. See for yourself here . . .

My daughter, Rachel of Snippets of Sweetness, posted about the St. Patrick's Day quilt/s she made me us. You can read her tale of two quilts here.

And the October quilt  made by my do.Good Stitches Faith Circle is done!
Thanks to Des/taffyjane for pulling the Raggedy Bullseye blocks together for a fun finish! (If you look close, you just might see glimpses of my blocks, just like hubby did!)

Well, the Tangerine Tango Challenge is now closed and boy is the competition stiff! There are 25 entries in the "Minis" category {here}, and 26 in the "Quilts", where mine is entered. Do check them out here - mine's #1 so you won't miss it! Revised post when I saw my quilt in the feature here!

Lastly - brace yourself - there is a quilt-along starting up March 12 using either of Camille Roskelley's patterns, On A Whim or Hopscotch. After the Swoon storm that's been going on for months, this should be interesting. On A Whim has been on my list, so I'm hoping to quilt along, though fabric has not even crossed by mind! We'll see. Anyone else joining in?

Whew! That's a whole lot of randomness!


  1. There is so much going on! I'm so glad I can count on you to keep me in the loop.
    That's a cute little mini you've got there!
    Thanks for mentioning my little post:)

  2. Wow, really, so much going on. Love your mini, so adorable. And that quilt is just amazing.

  3. That was quite the collection of randomness :oD Love your wee mini, and your quilt is fab, so colourful. Good luck with your tango!

  4. Lots of inspiration here Debbie - off to look at your entry in the Tangerine Tango challenge,

  5. Love the mini you got in the swap! Good luck in the tango challenge :)

  7. The mini is so cute, the quilting is fantastic! Such a great swap!
    The October quilt looks fab too.
    Good luck in the challenge :)
