Oh my goodness!  How many of the quilts have you had a chance to look through?  I know some of you were flustered on Friday with the blogger outage, hopefully everything has been restored for you!  It made me glad that I had moved to a wordpress blog – because I did not need one more thing to stress about last week!  I need to catch up with hundreds of emails, and begin processing my Market experience.  Such an overload of quilting people and friends, and networking opportunities for The Sewing Summit!

Here’s a quick picture from my schoolhouse – which went great – thankfully!  Never mind my funny face, I’m talking.

I had so much fun talking with anyone and everyone about Modern Basics!   This is me signing books for people waiting in line:

I had two signings, and they both were over so fast – so glad that Modern Basics is being well received : )

I have more to share, but I’m off to catch up with all of you and Bloggers’ Quilt Festival for right now!

Enjoy the show ~

    Just wanted to say thanks for giving me the opportunity to show my quilt at the bloggers quilt festival, Being new to quilting I have never had so many comments on a quilt and it was a much needed confidence boost for me. The talent out there is overwhelming and I got to follow so many new amazing blogs. So thanks! :-)

    The Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is beautiful…but I’ve only been able to make through 161 of the current 425…and with more to come (including mine)…it may take a while to make it through all of them! However, what better than a long quilt fest to enjoy at personal leisure!

    I was actually through all of them at around 400. So much talent! Looking forward to seeing more later this week.

    Amy thank you so much for taking the time to host this festival. I can only imagine the hours it took to coordinate all the sponsors and drum up the support. You totally rock!! I am so excited to start surfing the blogs and writing down all the fabrics I’m going to need to purchase to create them :-) hehehe. This festival couldn’t have been planned for a better weekend. I’m celebrating my 30th birthday (AGAIN) on Tuesday and I’m going to be getting birthday cash from friends and family so it’s perfect that I’m getting inspired to shop and create !!
