Fabric Basket Swap Goodies

I got my anticipated fabric basket and goodies last week.  It was well worth the wait.  I got the Noodlehead divided basket, some zippers, embroidery thread, sewing case and a cute wall hanging.  I appreciate the time and effort that my partner put into both fabricating the the basket and wall hanging and coming up with what goodies to share.  The goody part is always hard for me.  It is hard to guess what your partner would like.  I am pleased as punch.  Have not figured out what to put in my basket yet but I am sure I will come up with something good.

I finished up my Anything Goes Quilt.  I was in a strip swap where the theme was anything goes.  There are a whole lot of "interesting" fabrics in this quilt.  I made a pledge to myself to use up items from my stash so this is my way of making a charity quilt from fabric that I would not necessarily choose for myself.

I used the Wistful pattern from Villa Rosa Designs.  It was a bit time-consuming to cut but I like the result.  


  1. What a good swap gift! So many cool things in there. I love that wall hanging. That quilt is so pretty. It does look like a lot of cutting. Great job!

  2. What fun......and such useful things too.

    Love the quilt!

  3. Don't you love swaps. You got some really great gifts. And looking at all your quilts is putting me in the mood to sew. My mojo has been away for a few weeks. Boo.
    Hope you are having a great day
