I LOVE Simple Abundance too...I was so lucky to have someone buy a jelly roll for me at market...I've already sewn blocks with it...just waiting for yardage to finish! And I couldn't throw any of the scraps away...I sewed all of these 1 1/2 by 2 inch rectangles together and haven't decided what to do with them...maybe I'll have to make a pincushion! I wish Moda would just release this fabric now!!! Oh, and it will be fun to see the first quilts made by you and Camille!


I left a monstrous comment and now I don't see it. weird?


Okay, I think it is gone. Here is the short version-

first- you are too sweet! I'm so excited that you are enjoying SA. Blushing, actually. :-)

second- mine is a 'green thing' too. but more of a hunter green. yikes...

third- just blogged about this and made all kinds of assumptions without talking to you. hope you aren't mad. I'm really excited.

fourth- how big of a stink did you have to put up for that tuffet?? I need one too!

fifth- this isn't turning out to be that short

sixth- still up for the 'other' project we talked about at market? we really should get started on that.

seventh- (I can just keep going...)


Ok - here is my entry for My First Quilt Parade. http://www.concerningzarina.com/?blogentryid=4516890


I'm in!!
My entry is at:
Thanks for this great idea.

I'm playing too...here's my post

I'm new to quilting, so I only have one to share for the parade! Here it is:



Okay, I'm in, and I left a link at Camille's blog, but do I leave it here too? http://www.dreamweavers-quilts.com/quilt-epiphany/2009/07/06/my-first-quilt/

You're both too funny, you know. I've had that "whining, and then they give you the thing you whined about" thing happen too! Embarrassing, but so worth it sometimes. ;-) Looking forward to reading more on your blog, since I just got here via Camille!

Oh yeah, I pestered her to see her first, but I think pestering you is in order too. And what's wrong with green?


Ok, here is my entry,
I hope to finish my second quilt by MOnday and add the pics to that post. thank you!!


I love that Simple Abundance, too!

Here's my first quilt post - what fun!



Love this idea. Here is my entry!



I'm playing!
Take a look at where I've been and where I want to go with my quilting:


Oh man. This is going to be really hard. The first quilt I ever made was worn to smithereens by my daughter Sara. I even had to "recover" it. Who in the world has ever recovered a quilt? It ended up more of a duvet. Ok, I will show a picture of it. But do I have to show a picture of my first sampler quilt too? The baby diarrhea colored one? Ok I will.

This is my entry for the quilt parade. All you quilters are just so creative its almost embarrasing to post this but here goes....



Alrightly then. Here we go.


Such a fun idea! So glad you two came up with it.


Looking forward to seeing everyone else's posts!


I just left a comment over at Camille's and here I am! What a fun idea!!


What a great idea! Here's my link:http://www.hyacinthquiltdesigns.com/Site/Blog/Entries/2009/7/6_My_First_Quilt.html


i joined the first quilt parade:

Very sweet work with simple abundance! I love that line--can't wait to get some! I will have to dig out something close to my first quilt--sounds like fun!


Okay Carrie, I understand the whining part, I have no shame on that line either...matter of fact, I want a tuffet too...please, please, please, I NEED that tuffet, AND some Simple Abundance scraps, AND some Simple Abundance fabric, pleeaaaaasse...sniff, wimper, wine (oh, wrong whine). Ummm...did it work? NO? Ah well, can't say I didn't try...PLEEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEE! ***sigh*** okay,I'm through with my tantrum. I'll just have to settle for sulking. BUT, The thing that confuses me is the fact that you could possibly scare Judy with your driving!!! I mean, I remember the pictures you posted from your travels to Saint George here in Utah for a class you were doing and just because you were driving on a winding, two lane highway at 60 mph while snapping pictures...well, what could Judy possibly be worried about? I just really don't understand it, but I'll ponder it for a while and maybe it will come to me.


Thanks for the comments Carrie, (I would have e-mailed you back but for the love of goodness I can't find an e-mail for you!). And all quilts look better with cute babies, it distracts one from the awful pieceing and the no straight lines!


This is going to be a lot of fun...here is the link to my post!
http://aquiltinglife.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-first-quilt-and-giveaway-day-1.html Can't wait to see the first quilt photos from you and Camille!

Have a great day!

I love seeing everyone's quilts, so here's my offerings... go to
Come on Carrie, show us the green thing!


Take a look!



You know, I was going to show the world this quilt anyway, so why not. HA. www.minickandsimpson.blogspot.com


Well, I posted my first and most recent quilt. Luckily I seemed to have learned something about color over the years.


Ooohh, I don't see my comment either. Well, here is my entry a little late. www.minickandsimpson.blogspot.com


OMG that Simple Abundance fabric is wonderful...I'm going to keep my eye open for that group.

Merci beaucoup!


HI Carrie, I just finished posting about my first quilt and my latest quilt on my blog:) thanks for the challenge!


here's mine: http://sewinspired.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-first-quilt.html


What a great idea. I'm in! Here is the link to my post: http://sugiecookers.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-first-quilt.html


Hi Carrie! Oh, that is so nice of you to comment on my Sewing Frenzie pictures! The jars I got a year or two ago at a place here in Utah called Tai Pan Trading (it's a huge decor store - wholesale to the public). On the bottom of the jar it says "Housewares International" and the cake stand I got about that same time from another decorating store here in Utah called Evans Frontier/Gatehouse. Here's a link to their site: http://www.evansgatehouse.com/accessories.html. Good luck! Do we get to see some pictures of your sewing room?

P.S. I love your Summer Rental Pattern. Beautiful!

Joan Tufts
