2013 Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop - My Turn!


These past 2 months have really flown by!  I learned about Beth's New Blogger Blog Hop and couldn't wait to participate and my turn has finally come!  

I've been sewing since I was about 8 years old when my mom taught me on her Bernina 1080 Special.  I was in 4-H and wanted to make clothes!  Mostly Barbie clothes, but my mom made sure I finished my clothing projects just in the nick of time.  

My favorite project is quilting on my very own Bernina 440 and I love hanging out with the Austin Modern Quilt Guild ladies.  I just became the VP of Communication, so I'm in charge of our blog, Facebook page, and our charity projects!  I'm also in a couple of Flickr bees and fabric swaps.  All this keeps me pretty busy, but I still have time for my wonderful boyfriend and 2 furball cats.  

Since I live in Austin, I was lucky enough to attend QuiltCon in February.  I met so many wonderful quilters and found it very inspirational!  Houston is only a few hours away, and I'm planning to go to my first International Quilt Festival with my mom in October.  

I wrote this post awhile back about some of my favorite quilting tips and tricks.  Thanks for stopping by!  Here's a mosaic of some of my work before you leave.  You can also find me on Flickr, Instagram, Bloglovin, and the Modern Quilt Guild Community :)

It has been so wonderful to get to know you through the hop! Your work is so gorgeous and colorful!

by the way- sometimes when I try to leave you a comment, I click on "post a comment" but no comment box shows up for me. I'm not sure that there's really anything you can do, but I did want to let you know that I love your posts and would comment more often if that wasn't stopping me!

Hi Emily! It has been a pleasure to get to know you though the hop this summer. And to hear a little more about you in this post! How exciting to be a part of the guild! I will have to keep an eye on your posts to their facebook page. Love your colourful projects and especially that little panda in the heart. Simple but very sweet!

Love that last quilt in your mosaic. Is that the chain link fence pattern? I also love that panda heart. So cute. I saw that you were working on a Cathedreal windows project. How did you find that technique? Glad to meet you through the blog hop.

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

Hi! Your work is lovely! Particularly the Weekender bag with all that amazing Tula fabric! I just discovered her fabric and am slowly hoarding what I can find! Texas is a state I need to visit on my Global Quilt Store Tour! Austin, in particular, I have heard is a great city/region to visit. Maybe I will go to the show in Houston some year?! Nice to meet you on the blog hop!

Nice to formally meet ya Emily! Love your quilts and your eye for fabric choices is great. You sound like you are very bust with all the media for yourself and your guild. I know who to ask if I have any questions:)

Hi Emily - love your work, it's so bright and colourful and fun. I'm a bit envious of your proximity to great quilting events like QuiltCon and the International Quilting Festival. Houston is definitely on my wish list of places to visit!

Laura C @ littleandlots said...

I hear that they're considering doing QuiltCon 2015 in Austin again. I already made my husband promise that we would do everything we could to get me there from Boston! I think you have a great sense of color, Emily, and I've enjoyed following and seeing your bright and colorful projects!

suemac said...

Glad you could step in and fill the vacancy. You are doing a great job.

Caroline said...

Such fun, bright projects! I'm a new follower:)

Lovely Projects and have fun with your new Job at the quilt guild :)

Karen@littlebirdiequilting said...

I'm jealous of you being able to go to QuiltCon- we don' t have so many quilt festivals in Australia, but there are a few good ones! Love your colourful quilts.

Casey York said...

It's lovely to meet you through the hop! Quilt Con was a blast, wasn't it? I wonder if we crossed paths? Austin was a wonderful city to visit--you are lucky to live there! Can't wait to see what projects you write about in the future!

Elise Lea said...

So great to meet you! Love all the bright colors in your work (I am a bright color fanatic myself).

Valerie said...

Great projects! How great you are in Austin-I was at Quilt Con too and loved it!

HI Emily, nice to meet you properly. You have made some lovely things. Your weekender bag is gorgeous.

Great meeting you, Emily! Love what you've come up with so far, and a little bit jealous of how close you are to the goings on in the quilty world!
