294: I’m bacccckkkkk…….

May 19th, 2011

Okay, so I’ve been back…and it wasn’t even calmed down like I thought it might….I had three more quilts to make and a bunch of directions to write up…and then there’s the book as well!   It’s gonna be a busy year!!

Oh!! and I almost forgot!!  I have REALLY exciting news!!  Next summer (in 2o12) I will be teaching at Sisters, Oregon the week before their absolutely FAMOUS outdoor quilt show!!  I can barely believe that I am getting this opportunity to have a great week doing what I love and sharing that with others!!  Make sure to come if you can!!  I would love to meet you face to face!!

Okay so back to the here and now…..Here is a little bit that I just started on for a friend’s project….that’s all I can say…but I was told I could show you this picture of where I am at on it so far…

…this will change some before it gets shipped off…I had such fun not following any rules and forcing myself to stick to more solids than prints….it was great fun to play with these…


And I just checked my memory card from the very few pictures that I took at Quilt Market…..and apparently I am going to have to go get a CD made first, before I can download them…don’t ask me why…so no pictures of Market  from me yet, but they are popping up all over the place…. like here…and here…..and here….so you can find plenty….

What you can’t find other places are the prizes that I scored for you from all the various vendors at Market!!  So to kick of f  the next 4-5 weeks of giveaways here is prize #1….the Fabulous Lizzy House bag….truly sought after by most Market attendees!!  plus I am throwing in two magazines chock full of great ideas!!

so drop in and leave a comment, and I will draw a name….let’s say next Monday evening or Tuesday morning the 23rd or 24th….okay??  Go for it!!

  27. Lynn D in NC says:

    Welcome back Scott, can’t wait to see your pictures. And congratulations on all of your exciting events – it’s all well deserved.

  28. SewLindaAnn says:

    It’s probably a good thing that we need to wait to see your pictures as lots of other blogs are over-loading it at the same time. Yours will be out when we’ve had a chance to digest theirs (so to speak). Anyway, cool quilt. Did you really find it difficult to play with more solids than prints? I would think it would be a welcome change of pace.

  29. Syd says:

    You’ll have such a great time in Sisters. It beautiful there! Can’t wait to see pics from Market. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I’ve been enjoying the posts from market by other bloggers. Market is something I will never see in person, so it is exciting to get everyone’s perspective and catch their excitement….I also like I don’t have to fight the crowds :}
    Love your wonky log cabins…I’ve got some I won in a lotto to put together….I look forward to see how you set these…
