Hop Til You Drop


Michelle at Quilting Gallery loves a good party, so it's that time again. I'd suggest that she wants to save money on party favors by making us bloggers provide the prizes, but I'd hate to sound like I think that isn't brilliant.

Welcome, Quilting Hotties, one and all! As the tagline reads, it's not a look, it's an attitude, and therefore no one is disqualified due to leg length, hair length, or even stitch length. I embrace my hottie side by keeping it light, keeping it fresh (both in projects and attitude) and keeping it real, and I hope you'll consider stopping in again and again to recharge your own hottieness.

Depending upon what time you read this on November 21, I may well be sewing my head off at my guild's Open Sew, where I will be running a dumbed-down version of my "Round Robin in a Day" workshop with a few friends. After a day of epic block fails yesterday, I actually just finished my center block they'll be starting with, and I just love it.
Isn't it fun how the design wall is just like a gigantic used lint roller?
This class is great fun to facilitate, and even more fun to participate in, and I am so pumped to not only be creating and designing all day tomorrow as I add to three other participants' quilts, but also to be the one screaming "WE HAVE 10 MINUTES LEFT IN THIS ROUND! NO MORE TIME! GET IT DONE! NOW!" like a lunatic. Time will tell how much the other ladies appreciate my candor and inflexibility in relation to clock management.

Half the fun of this class is the prep, not only in making a cool center block, but also in rolling around naked in your stash to find all sorts of yardage to bring along for everyone to work with during the day. I found this baby and really hope it gets used!
I only wish I had more. And that trees really could be polka dotted.

I always suggest quilters bring only about 4 yards total of fabrics they would like to see in their finished round robin because we don't have room for everyone to bring their entire stashes, but you know no one listens. I kid you not, the last time I taught this class, this was Judi's work area.

There's a show-off in every crowd.
In truth, I WAS jealous of the cart.
We'll see how well my victims fellow participants follow the guidelines tomorrow. Knowing a couple of them as I do, I have little faith that we won't have at least one overpacker.

Even if you read this early, I am excited that I can come back and update with a photo of the finished round robin after the class. It will be "summerweight," as the class only guarantees leaving with a top, not a finished quilt, but I promise the transformation will be amazing. If it isn't, you'll pretend it is.

Update: We didn't quite finish. I blame the facts that I couldn't be an effective whip cracker while sewing myself, and I was working with some of the most perfectionist, most amazing quilters I know, who would not be rushed. But who cares? The results are gorgeous!
The bottom two will be completed by our guild meeting in a couple of weeks. But they've started strong.

Besides workshops and my rather hilarious and awesome but I really shouldn't say that as it sounds kinda boastful trunk show lectures for guilds and other groups, I am a quilt designer for myself and various publications, creator of "Drop and Give Me Twenty", organizer of one or two group quilt projects through this blog every year, and a mom of three girls way too young to drive themselves anywhere and who never all want to be in the same place at the same time. I'm also currently developing a new attraction coming to QHH in 2014: "Hottie Hotseat" - A monthly post highlighting an industry professional in five hard-hitting questions or less, several of them guaranteed snarky. You'll hear about it all here at QHH, and I hope you'll pop in and participate in some or all of it! 

And now we come to the goodie bag goods. To celebrate the blog hop, I'm giving away the items pictured in this oh-so-professional-looking photo. I live in the northeast. We have like 4 hours of daylight this time of year. Forgive me.

Items pictured are way more awesome than they appear.
Should you be my big winner, you will receive:

  • One copy of "Diamond Dazzle," an original booklet-style pattern by moi. Five sizes, cool border options, great fun.
  • Six fat-quarter-ish orange and teal modern prints. I received these from Lemon Tree Fabrics, and they are ends of bolts. They are awesome, although slightly oddly sized. You will undoubtedly deal because they are so pretty.
  • Five spools of Mettler thread in various shades of pink
To enter, please leave a comment telling me your favorite appetizer or pie. Recipes not needed, but I'd never turn it down. You'll be helping me greatly as I prepare to contribute both next week to the day of merriment, thankfulness, and sheer joyous gluttony we call Thanksgiving.

For an extra entry let me know if you follow Quilting Hottie Haven. And if you don't follow, I'll need a two page single-spaced essay explaining why not.

Kidding.

Good luck, and happy hopping!

So fun, love mini retreats, love to see all the fabric. My favorite dessert is pecan pie. Thanks.

Jeneta said...

I love your posts! I don't think I could read one without laughing if I tried! I'm going to be really original with desserts and say apple pie (only because I have come across the most AMAZING apple pie ever. Not just one of those recipes that says it is the best in the world, but one that actually is. I have tossed out the family recipe that has been handed down for the last 23 generations and I'm going with this one!) or pumpkin pie. Even though I am an Aussie through and through, I make a great pumpkin pie (I should probably thank my mother in law right about now for giving me her recipe). I think it's because we haven't yet learned how to put everything in a can, so I am forced to cook the pumpkin first. I should probably do a blog post of each of them - terribly selfish not to share with the world!

VickiT said...

I had to laugh about you wanting to be so tough with the clock to push the group ahead. It sounds like you had fun.

My favorite appetizer is spinach artichoke dip which is served hot with small pieces of toasted sourdough bread slices.

One of my favorite pies is a coconut cream pie from a recipe I found a number of years ago. Even those in my house who don't claim to like coconut love this pie. It is super easy and SOOOOO good. Darn. Now I need to make it again soon after I've just 'talked' about it. lol

Hi! I love the center block with turquoise! Thank you for a lovely give away! I could live with appetizers! I live in Greece and often we fill the table just with them. Fried cheese is one of my favourites (press lemon on it when eating). One other simple is to put fat slides tomatoes on a oven pan + feta cheese, pepper, oregano and olive oil and for a while in the oven. Delicious!
PS. I hate to cook but fortunately hb doesn't! Sunny wishes from Greece! x Teje

Nita said...

Favourite pie...I just discovered mini-cheesecakes. Easy to make: put paper muffin liners in a 12-section muffin pan. Put a single vanilla wafer in the bottom of each paper cup. In a bowl mix together 1/2 cup egg white, 1 cup spreadable light cream cheese (the whipped kind, not the cracker spreading kind), 1 cup low fat Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well. Pour into baking cups. Bake @ 350 about 20 minutes. Cool. Put 1 tsp jam on the tops. Delicious!

Favorite pie is pecan. midwayfarms@hughes.net

Janet said...

I wrote out the recipe and then accidently erased it. Here goes again. These are not an appetizer on their own but are delicious topping crackers or toast. Roasted tomatoes. I buy the ones on the 50% discount table as they are a bit soft and roast up well. Cut in half widthwise and put cut side up in a pyrex dish. Top each one with a tsp of balsamic vinegar, slices of fresh garlic, a pinch each of sugar and pickling salt and a sprinkling of thyme leaves. Put in a 350 oven for around three hours. Take them out when they are as done as you like them. A little bit of blackening adds to the flavour, but you don`t want too much. You can save the oil for next time, or use it for cooking. Keep the tomatoes in a jar in the fridge. We eat them with eggs for breakfast, in sandwiches and just as a side dish with dinner. Super yummy!
