Quick Reminder

Posted on October 11th, by Amy in Uncategorized. 22 comments

Hi Friends ~I just wanted to make sure that everyone remembers how to play nicely. I’ve been updating a few links to send them to your posts instead of just your front page. I know that’s where your post is today, but in a week it will be gone, and it is going to take a month (if not more) for me to get through all the links!

Also be sure to– tell us about your quilt.– link back to the festival in your post.– actually post a quilt!– when posting a link, use the link to your post, not your front page.– if you link to a flickr pic, please pick one – not your photostream, and share about it in the description field.– and no shops, if you are interested in being a sponsor next time, please … Read More »

Big smiles and waves to all of you!! You guys are blowing me away! We have over 400 entries in our festival already – amazing!! Thank you so much for your kind words in the comments – they have kept me going :) And I have yet to even started looking through your links – I will eventually though!

Grocery Sacs

Posted on October 6th, by Amy in finished project. 13 comments

Slightly more interesting than yesterday! I have been wanting to make a set of grocery sacs since I made the first one last year. . . you know those projects that you put off because they just aren’t that exciting. Guilty! The pattern is from SewSimple – May 2008 – it works up easily and is comfortable to carry a load of groceries. Now I have a set of six, made from thrift sheets!

I gotta run again – so excited for Friday to come!

Monday Madness!

Posted on October 5th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival, twitter. 10 comments

Hi Friends ~I don’t seem to be able to sit for long enough today (probably not a bad thing!). Monday is early out for the kids’ school, thus the day is even MORE choppy than usual. 3 trips to school and back daily. And it has been snowing again – hopefully it will warm up soon (like 50).

Saturday night I went to Girls Night Out at the local quilt shop, and got to meet Natalia. She was sharing her quilts that she tends to make with pre-cuts — cute stuff! And she has quite a few tutorials on her blog.

I haven’t done any sewing in the last few days either – my extra energy has been put into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! The details are coming together and I’m getting super excited.

Sew-n-Tell

Posted on October 2nd, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival, sew-n-tell. 3 comments

You are assuming from the title, that I have a finished project. Nope not today! I have a few half-finished projects but not to the point where I’m ready to share :)

But I did want to remind you to link up!

And remind you to spread the word —

One week until the Quilt Festival! Have you decided which quilt to showcase? It’s Quilter’s Choice, so find a favorite, special quilt to share. I’m looking forward to it! And the prizes are going to be great – 18 fabulous sponsors helping to make the event a huge success!

Any of you locals to SLC need a reason to visit Midway? Girls Night Out at Seasons of the Home is tomorrow, and I’m planning to be there :)

Have a great weekend —Amy—————————————-

September Snow!

Posted on September 30th, by Amy in photographs. 31 comments

Over last weekend I took a few pictures of the fall colors on the mountain side – I love this time of year! I’m so glad I got to take them because today it’s snowing, and most of the leaves will probably be gone. These pics have a date stamp on them – I don’t know how to take them off of the little camera :(We are having spaghetti and homemade bread for dinner! The perfect finish for a cold day :)

I hope you are warm and loved where you are~Amy

Natalie’s Quilt — Finished!

Posted on September 29th, by Amy in finished quilt. 30 comments

Well taking a picture outside, with only little helpers, wasn’t working today. It’s very windy – so I found the best indoor spot and snapped a quick pic of most of the quilt! Then moved to the kitchen where I have lots of good light for the rest.To see all of it – check this post out.

I worked through a couple of options for quilting, but came back to a quick stipple. I managed to quilt it in just a few hours :)We used a couple of coordinating Kona cottons to back it – do you see them peeking out?I love dots for bindings!I used the alphabet on my machine to make a label this morning too.I love the color palette and the simplicity of the design – now I just have to send it off to … Read More »
