SNOW!!!



Just how many quilt tops do you think I have crammed into this one bin?

Got a guess? 


I'll leave it open for ONE DAY, for guesses.. Whoever guesses the right amount will get a surprise, goodie package... 
 CLOSED as of 11am.
Winners announced shortly.


Here is a detail of a quilt I made for Michael Miller Fabrics, using Laura Gunn's new line.  Are you going to QUILTCON? You will see this quilt hanging there! This is a sneak peak! 

Below is another sneak peak of three more quilts that will be at QuiltCon... Another for Michael Miller and a Newcastle fabrics quilt in the Simplicity booth... I also have two quilts in the show!  And the Quilt Alliance quilt will be there!   By the way, my Q.S.O.S. interview from over a year ago is now up on the website... click here.

Are you going to QUILTCON?  I'll have  a book signing at 3pm on Thursday Feb 21st, at C&T publishing booth. Otherwise, you may find me at the Quilt Alliance booth, or Simplicity... SAY HI!

Newcastle Fabrics has a new website up... Please pop over to see! LIKE them on Facebooktoo! My fabrics will be out at Spring Market with Newcastle... Squeal and Double Squeal!!! So exciting!

New Castle Baby quilt, Margo's Shirtings will be in the Simplicity booth at QuiltCon.
My, MAZE quilt with Michael Miller booth at Quilt Con.
Sneak peak of the other Michael Miller quilt on the far left, and the Quilt Alliance, Quilter's take Manhattan quilt, each will have booths at QuiltCon! Stop by to see!


Ironing board rcvd a new covering this week, and found a few old projects while cleaning that are ready for their close ups!  


   
The video this week is shaky, as I wanted to show you all the SNOW!  Fun little tour of my home and studio, though!

What's on my wall now? Just my playful Elephants quilt... Not quite KING size yet... A few more rows to go!  ( all Tina Givens fabrics... with Chocolate  Kona solid)

Paperwork is still cluttering my desk... Must get to that today too... I cleaned up my fabric shelves yesterday, and have more fabric to fold today... the mess never ends... ;-)

Stay warm!

MAKE your QUILT TOP GUESS (Open for ONE DAY ONLY)... If any Duplicate guesses are correct, I will draw one winner.
Ends Sunday at 11am.

  47. Nice tour, Miss V!! Probably quite low, but I'm going to say 10. Just came in from shoveling to warm up a bit. I've been out there for the better part of 10 hours and still not done *groan*. Really windy, but at least the snow seems to have stopped. We are well over 2 FEET. Ugh. Sure could use a nice treat as a reward :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  63. I reckon 27 in the bin. But only because its my favourite number!

    Absolutely loved the tour of the studio and apartment and the SNOW! Here is Canberra it's been quite hot so it's lovely to see some different weather even though snow can be quite a pain, I know! Enjoy your day in the studio. I know my sewing room is where I'm going to be as well.

  64. Hello! Happy snow day! I wish Indiana had some of your snow. It's just cold here. I'm guessing SIX. I have a wonderful contraption that I hang my finished tops on. It's an Amish laundry drying rack. It's very tall, about 9 ft, and has about 15 wide dowels that hold all my pressed, finished tops. Plus, I can see them, and I really like that! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  95. 15. Love all the snow pictures. I remember the big snowstorms of my youth, growing up in NY & NJ....in high s hook I would always make sure I had hot chocolate ready and waiting for the plow guys. Give them hot chocolate and they would plow out the end of the driveway instead of leaving huge banks of snow.....

    ReplyDelete
