like an orange on a toothpeck

Not too long ago, I was sitting around, browsing through all the dormant Flickr swap groups, and wondering when the next rounds of the Doll Quilt Swap, Pillow Talk Swap, or Scrappy Mug Rug swaps were going to start. Christmas was over, my sewing room was clean, and I felt the itch to start making things again. Literally that same day, I got a head-inflating email from one of the top swap mamas on Flickr asking me to join an exclusive mini-quilt swap that was for invited people only.

Well who can resist an offer like that? A personal invitation? The prospect of making a quiltie for some of the super talented people on Flickr--and, even better, to receive one??

I deliberated for a nanosecond. And then I was in. 

I'm super excited about this, not to mention honored to be included in such an amazing group of quilters. Here are my inspiration mosaics:

More FLiQ faves

The other day we recieved our partner info, and I immediately went and did some blog and Flickr faves stalking. And today I pulled a cheery rainbow of patterns and solids that makes me smile. I hope it makes my partner smile, too.

FLiQ Picks?

In reference to my now enlarged head, I'll leave you with this, one of my favorite scenes from "So I Married an Axe Murderer":
