276: Birthday Presents for you!!


276: Birthday Presents for you!!

Okay….well presents for one of you at least….February 2nd is my birthday…..and I decided tonight (February 1st) to giveaway a present  to one of you for my birthday! 


How fun is that ??

So all you have to do is guess how old I am turning on the 2nd of February…if more than one person guesses the right age then I will draw between those entries….and if no one guesses the right age, the closest one wins.   And just so you know, flattery usually goes a long way with me, but extreme flattery may not win you the prize….

Of course if I get a lot of ages that make me consider dying my hair back to its naturally un”frosted” state, this whole project may be an extreme blow to my Vanity (and trust me, I unfortunately have more of That than I should)

Oh, yeah what is the present you get??  10 Fat Quarters from some of my favorites in my stash!  and if you guess my favorite color as well, I will throw in an extra Fat Quarter for good measure…but only if you guess the right color (which I may or may not have mentioned in this blog somewhere before — honestly I can’t remember for sure if I did, but I think I may have mentioned it before)

So you have until Sunday the 6th of February to comment on this post with the age you think I am turning on the 2nd and if you want to try for the 11th Fat Quarter guess my favorite color as well. 

Happy Guessing to you…..and Happy Birthday to me!!


  • I’m guessing you are turning 42 on February 2nd! My birthday is the next day!

    Based on the glasses, I’d say 45 or 46. Only because my hubby has photos of himself in glasses just like those. lol

    Favorite color? Blue.

    Oh yeah, I meant to say Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday Scott. I think you are the same age as me and turning 48 this year. I suspect your favourite colour is blue because of the logo and the amount you use. Send my congrats to Linda as the bracelet shown yesterday was gorgeous!

    February 2, 2011 at 4:15 am
  • you like red and that’s all i’m saying.

    February 2, 2011 at 5:26 am
  • I am going to guess 43 and blue!

    Happy birthday in any case!

    Happy Birthday! How about 44 years young!

    February 2, 2011 at 6:21 am
  • Happy Birthday! Hope you have a fun one. I’m guessing 47 and hmmm…blue?

    February 2, 2011 at 6:37 am
  • So…I looked for clues and hints and checked out any forehead wrinkles. 😉

    I am guessing 45 and the color is blue…but that may be because I think everyone’s favorite color should be blue. 😉

    Either way:

    Happy Birthday!

    February 2, 2011 at 6:52 am
  • Quilters never age but if I had to guess I would go with 44 like the width of a bolt lol and blue as the cheery blue skies you bring to us with your creations….

    February 2, 2011 at 8:17 am
  • My guess is that you’re turning a happy 39 again and your favorite color is blue. Happy birthday- fun photos!

    February 2, 2011 at 8:38 am
  • Happy birthday Scott! I love all your baby pictures! I already know how old you are so I won’t say (you graduated the year before me so I did a little math). 🙂

    February 2, 2011 at 9:02 am
  • Happy B-day…

    I gotta go with 39 and blue…

    Yay you!! See you at Quilt Market…

  • Shelley C


    I’ll say red is your favorite color because I see it in almost everything you make!!

    And I’ll guess that you are about my age, but a tad YOUNGER so I’ll say 49. I turn 50 next month…have pity on me! Just a sad smile will suffice….empathize with me….I am so gonna make myself a pecan pie for my birthday treat! I don’t care for cake and I rarely get pecan pie….I’m gonna eat it all….unless I get company….wanna come over for coffee and pie?

    Pecan Pie sounds great I’ll be right over!

  • Shelley C


    Dah!! you can tell I”m gonna turn fifty….I meant to say….

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Enjoy the day!

    February 2, 2011 at 7:38 pm
  • You aren’t my age, but younger, I’d say you were born in the early 70’s making you 38.

    You like lots of colour and brights, I am torn between orange and lime green, but am going with blue due to the name of your studio.

    February 2, 2011 at 8:09 pm
  • I’m gonna say 42. Happy birthday!

    February 2, 2011 at 8:54 pm
  • Patty


    Happy Birthday Scott! I’m thinking 47 and the color blue, because of your blog name.

    Happy Belated Birhday! I’m going to guess 50 and blue. I hope you had a great day.

    Happy Birthday, Scott! I’m going to guess you just turned 46 (still an infant!) and your favorite color is blue. Hope your day was great!

  • barbara


    Must be blue…right???
    My grandmother’s birthday was also 2/2, however if she were still living she would be about 116, I know your not that old I am guessing 48. Your style in your younger years photos matches that of my older siblings, they are 55, 53, 50, 49, 46, 44 and 42. I took the average and came up with 48. Happy Birthday, oops”belated”

    February 3, 2011 at 12:47 pm
  • Carolyn J Florow-Tyler


    looking at style,you are fifty to sixty five.your color is red

    Happy Birthday Scott! Great presentation tonight at Block Party Quilters. You sure made the little boys night tonight!! I really like hearing your progression as a quilter and it was very inspiring and I love how you just “DO IT”.
    I’m guessing you turned 46 years old and your favorite color is Chartreuse Green. You also wore a green shirt tonight and usually people will wear what they like best and you look good in green:)

    Happy Belated Birthday, Scott! I think you are 47 this year and your favorite color is blue. Sure hope is one of your best days.

    February 4, 2011 at 6:57 am
  • Phyllis


    My first guess was 48 but so many people guessed that, that I’m going to go with 47 and guess that your favorite color is blue. Hope your birthday (no matter what number it was) was great!

    February 4, 2011 at 7:12 am
  • Happy belated Birthday! I’m guessing that you’ve just turned 47 – were you in seventh grade when the Bicentennial background was used at school?

    Color – you definitely favored blue as a boy so I’ll go with that!

    February 4, 2011 at 7:52 am
  • Peg


    I just turned 54 so that would make you 34. Red or blue, red or blue…..I guess red! Happy belated and have a great year!

    Hi Scott,
    Your presentation last night at BPQ was very enjoyable, thanks for sharing!
    I am guessing your age is 38 and your favorite color is Brown.

    Hi Scott. I was happy to meet you last night at the guild meeting. I am the person building the new house in Darrington. I forgot to ask you what type of machine you use for piecing (new house gets a new sewing machine). I think you turned 49 on your birthday; and as for your favorite color, you did mention chartruesse, however I think your favorite color is brown. Hope your birthday was great!

    February 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm
  • Linda Henzler


    I hope your birthday was fabulous. I am gonna guess your age to be 47 because of the glasses and clothes you have on in one of your pics…I checked back and one of my sons has a pic that is very similar and he’s gonna be 48 late this year. And because his favorite color is blue, that’s what I will guess for you. This is the first time I have visited you blog… I jumped over from the Quilting Board and Men Who Quilt.

  • Rebecca


    Happy 37th birthday. I’ll bet you love green.

    February 4, 2011 at 5:54 pm
  • Del


    I think you are 51 and your color is green.

    February 4, 2011 at 6:36 pm
  • OK – late as usual! My guesses have been taken already, but I am still going to try for the right answers 🙂 You are going to be the same age I am going to be this year – 49! And your favorite color is – I’m going out on a limb with this one – RED!

    Hope your birthday was great! Also, hope 2011 is a successful year for you and Blue Nickel 🙂

    February 4, 2011 at 6:50 pm
  • I think you would be 53 years of age and I think your favorite color is red. Happy Birthday

    February 4, 2011 at 7:39 pm
  • Happy 49th Birthday. Hope it’s not a blue day, although it is your favorite, right?
    (I’ll be 51 and know there’s no way you’re as old as I am.)

    February 4, 2011 at 9:57 pm
  • Liz


    Hope you had, have a happy 50th birthday (only because you mention teens). I bet a nickel your favorite color is blue. How did you come up with the name BNQ? If you know some history trivia, you may be able to guess why I ask.

    February 5, 2011 at 7:47 am
  • Lori


    Is it the big 5 0?? You definitely look younger – no schmoozing, only speaking the truth…
    Happy birthday!!

    February 5, 2011 at 8:32 am
  • Jeanne Zukowski


    I am guessing 55 and blue. When I am that old I hope to quilt as beautifully as you do. OOOPSSS I passed that age ages ago.
    Love your quilts. Hope you had a Happy Birthday whatever your age is.


    February 5, 2011 at 8:35 am
  • 48 + blue =) Your birthday is the same as my sweet grandpa Stanley’s. He was born in 1899 though….

    February 5, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    You are at least as old as I, which must make you 46!?

  • Brenda


    51years old and blue

    February 5, 2011 at 6:05 pm
  • Okay, so it is a few days past your birthday. I hope it was a good one. My guess would be 60, with your favorite color as red.

  • Susan R


    Based on the glasses, I’ll guess 48 and blue is your fav color! Happy Birthday and thanks so much for giving us a chance at a gift!

  • Rosanne Derrett


    I can’t even remember my own age now – I’m actually 47 this June (1964). My brain hurts and I need a lie down!

  • Jade


    i guess 48 and chartruess green!

    February 6, 2011 at 2:14 pm
  • I’m guessing you’re turning the same age as my hubby – 43. And I think red is your favourite colour.

  • Anne


    We share the same birthday and I can tell you you are much younger than me. My guess is 29.

    Happy belated birthday, hope it was a good one.
