180: Split Pea Soup

180: Split Pea Soup

 Yeah, my second published quilt is out in Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts Fall 2009  Here it is in its full glory.split pea soup p.14 

I really am not too fond of this picture of me, but it’s me, and note it is under the title of designer…..just wanted to be sure you noted that.. 🙂

 split pea soup layout  Here is the quilt back in our garden…I actually started making this for a cousin of Linda’s who was having a baby…..May 2008!! It took awhile for it to get finished and back here.  Robert Walker Williams will be getting it before too long though… but just wanted to share the happy news…split pea soup1  split pea soup2

I have two more quilts finished and coming out later this year and early next.  And I just finished working up another quilt for Fons and Porter. It just has to go to the quilter and then it will be off to them again.  They have been great to work with.  I know my contact there Diane reads here regularly (Hi Diane!)…..I never quite knew what blogging would do, and sometimes it feels a little “dis-connected” but then other times it feels Very Connected.  

Another reader of this blog and good friend of my wife gave me a little gift the other day through Linda, and I thought I would share it and publicly say thank you to Jeanette for the cool little bird pincushion dude and the Ford fabric. bird and ford fabric 

Isn’t he great…loving the black hairdo! Thanks a bunch Jeanette!!

Tomorrow is Linda‘s birthday (She’d love it if you stopped by and said happy Bday) and the next  day is Mimi’s so we have a lot of celebrating to do around here this week. 

And if you have been following me on Twitter…well, then I am sorry for the complaining about the heat….I really don’t like the really hot weather we’ve been having….but it never lasts for long, so really it will be okay….the whining about the heat won’t last too long….I hope….

There is much more to say and write, but I have a got a whole family itching for me to get going so we can get on with our day….

Keep sewing, keep happy!

    I really like this quilt, and how the lines don’t line up, it’s refreshing. I’m sure Robert will love it.
    And no you can never have too much fabric =o)

  • That quilt looks yummy. It has the “lounge on the couch with remote in hand” look that I love. Congratulations on having it published; now when you gift it you should include a copy of the magazine to document its history (have I been watching too much PBS or what???) It could be a fun thing for the baby to have… a fancy “designer” quilt; sure to impress the babes…if you know what I mean, LOL! Way to go Scott! Woo-Hoo!
