Random stuff Friday

I'm really looking forward to the Value Added Quilt Along being run by Leila (Where the Orchids Grow), Amy (badskirt), Jolene (Blue Elephant Stitches) and Rachel (Stitched in Color).  

They are some of my quilting/blogging heroes, so I think it will be a good one.  I am aware of value when making quilts, but I have never done a quilt which focuses or plays on value.

I love the idea of a gingham quilt like this one from Caitlin at saltyoat (link via Stitched in Color).  I bought some solid fabrics from Spotlight today to make my own version.  I will strip piece it so I think it will come together quite quickly.

I also plan to do a bit of a review of the Spotlight fabrics, because they are very well priced at $7.99 a metre (for comparison for overseas readers (or non-quilters), designer cotton quilting fabrics in New Zealand are typically priced at between $25 and $35 a metre).  If the quality is up to scratch, these could represent excellent value for money.

Also, nothing to do with quilting, but this is a brilliant response to a fairly tongue-in-cheek comment on a feminine hygiene product company's Facebook page.
