Blogger’s Quilt Festival

October 9th, 2009

I’m late to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (thank you Amy!)… but hey, I was making everyone pancakes.  What a night… I don’t think anyone slept last night.  But then, who sleeps at slumber parties?  Really.  I need a nap, and it’s only Day Uno of the party - and there’s lots more room for lots more NMG peeps.

Wonder Twin Super-Powers Actived

So last Festival I cheated and showed two quilts.  This Festival… I’m showing one.  I’ve turned over a new leaf and am playing by the rules - and today I am good and on my best behavior (tomorrow I go back to my old disobedient and risqué ways… and don’t be surprised if you find zucchini in your apple pancakes - which of course I will deny).

Wonder Twin Super-Powers Activated

Not just because I love the colors, or the fabric, or the quilt pattern… it’s because it’s my “Wonder Twin Super-Powers Activated” quilt.  About 2½ years ago Pam surprised me with the cutest little bundle of some Windham fabric from her stash…

Home at last

and unbeknownst to each other - we were each making a quilt from the SAME quilt pattern from the SAME little Japanese quilt book called “Square Patchwork” at the SAME time.  Photo above is right after I made it - at my previous home - and apparently I was a much neater and organized person back then.
Book info: Square Patchwork ISBN4-8347-6441-9

Wonder Twin Super-Powers Activated

It was all very Gift of Magi like - but Pam’s and my watches and hair survived unscathed.  I have very, very, very little wall space in my teenie weenie studio… but this is one quilt that I will find space for so I can look at it every day.   Everything gets moved around this quilt.  What’s in front, beside, above and below is dictated by the quilt (like the birdie branch a friend made).  Yup… WTS-PA rules the roost.  At least the wall roost.

Wonder Twin Super-Powers Activated

Ok… apple pancakes are just about ready!

    Lovely design and just YUMMY fabric!

  5. The fabulous floribunda allegedly said:

    I used to make pizza that a crust made out of shredded zucchini — very good, actually! I love your quilt. Funny, because in the first photo I thought it was a big quilt, in the second photo I thought it was a little smaller, but in the third photo I see how small it actually is. Just lovely!

  6. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Oooh, they’re both just adorable — great minds think alike! Sorry I can’t join the party — i hab a cowd and I’m sure you don’t want it, so I’ll stay home. Besides, it’s probably time I took my turn….

  7. The fabulous Sherri allegedly said:

    Yes, swooning would be the word…love your quilt and the story and the cute pink bird…love, love, love it! I was late to the party too…just finished my post!

  8. The fabulous byneedleandthread allegedly said:

    I love this quilt too and would also plan everything around it. So weird that you were making the same quilt with the same fabric. You two must be cosmically connected.

  9. The fabulous Cathy allegedly said:

    Very cute, and interesting to see your studio. I’m wondering, how do you hang the quilts on the walls in your studio? It doesn’t look like you use curtain rods.

  10. The fabulous Anne allegedly said:

    So pretty and vintage looking! The fabric looks like beautiful old handkerchiefs!

  11. The fabulous amandajean allegedly said:

    it’s wonderful and oh so you!!

    Isn’t it great when you and a friend are thinking the same thing?! Very adorable little quilt too. It works so well in your studio. Cheers!

  13. The fabulous ELIZABETH E. allegedly said:

    Always a pleasure to visit your site and enjoy your creativity. And, by the way, LOVE the quilt. Maybe I’ll stop surfing the web and get started on one for myself (inspiration strikes!)

  27. The fabulous Martha allegedly said:

    Love this — it’s so pretty and cheery and makes me feel happy just to look at it. Nice job and thanks for submitting so I could have a chance to see this beauty.

  28. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    I got goosebumps hearing that story! Woot! How very cosmic or you two! I mean go figure the odds on those two combos from two different people! Your space is so dreamy. Truly I squealed aloud when I saw the happiness of it all! You know I just bought 2 yards of turquoise fabric with fat ol red polka dots (michael miller) and I hope he checked with you before designing it. It should say on the selvedge edge “Happy Zombie Dreamy Dotties”. Those royalties are really gonna perk up your Christmas Club fund!! Could I please have a little cute fiesta ware cup of peanut butter with my pancakes? I hope my plate is the red one. It does make the food taste so much more yummy! xxoo Pam in Chico

  29. The fabulous raesha allegedly said:

    Beautiful beautiful beautiful!!! I’m totally late to the slumber party which has been the story of my life the last few weeks. I hope there’s one little day old apple pancake left for me:)

  30. The fabulous Shirley LeDoux allegedly said:


    I think we should have an awards show “The Quemmy Awards” after market to give out a “Golden Quilt” to whomever had the best coverage of market. Maybe we could have different categories..Most Timely Postings…Most Coverage/Pictures…Best Market Stories.

  31. The fabulous Rene' allegedly said:

    Such a happy quilt. Love it, love it. I have to say I also love that you call all of us “fabulous” when we “allegedly” comment. Are those Longaberger baskets I see under your quilt? Love those too. New to blogland and just found yours. Will definitely be back for a visit. Thanks for sharing.

What a bright visual delight you have provided. I go now, to prowl around your blog - you see why I am unlikely to see the whole show, I don’t want to skim past such lovely blogs and not really see. Thanks for inviting me ( all of us) in!
