I Love Random

Here's some fun randomness I've been collecting up to share with you!

First up, an awesome Polaroid quilt from OccasionalPiece-Quilt! Isn't it fun? Read all about it here.

Snippets of Sweetness shared her "Top Ten Things I Learned at Sewing Summit", and they are definitely worth checking out!

Katie from Katie's Korner invited several of us bloggy friends to join in making a quilt for a special little boy a while back. Just look at the colorful Snowball quilt she made! It was awesome to be a part of this project!

Oh, Fransson! posted a really helpful post about making patchwork panels for a structured bag this week. Ie. Think Weekender! Though the technique would be useful in a myriad of other projects too! Just look at the sweet wristlet she made!

Speaking of Weekenders, verykerryberry shared recently about crazes, and I agree with her about that bag!

Lastly, somehow the fall Blogger's Quilt Festival totally snuck up on me! It starts tomorrow!!

Hi Debbie. I'm nearly ready for the festival. Wish it were a new quilt, but it's not. This past summer's project. Have fun and that Polaroid quilt is amazing!

Such good randomness! Thanks for sharing a link to Katie's quilt, who knows how long it would have taken me to get through my reader to have seen it! I think all of our contributions turned out great!
