An Inbox Full of Quilty Goodness!

I'd like to welcome Roslyn Atwood to the blog today!

I met Roslyn while teaching in Tucson, and I have shown you the results of her quilt-labors in a previous post HERE.  This is one of those photos taken from that post, as the other photos she sent me didn’t have any of HER in them!

Besides, I really like this photo of her with her pile of quilts showing off her Smith Mountain Morning from Scraps & Shirttails II!

We had such a great time on that trip!  And she had mentioned that she would be sending me photos of other quilts she’s worked on and boy has she been busy!

This morning I am packing furiously for Michigan ---we have a 7am flight in the morning and so much needs to be done today. 

Including dropping off a shipment of quilts to FedEx, getting them to Kansas City Star so they can hang them in their booth at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh in just a few weeks.  I wish I were going, but I’m going to be in Southern California instead --

Anyway, Roslyn’s photos came at a great time – I can share them with you in a slide show, and I can get back to packing!

She writes:

I only sent pics of those that I did not bring for show & tell at the Tucson classes, I figured you have those already?
Playing With Jacks front & back. Quilted with "Swirls"
My Blue Heaven, not quilted, I'm going to use Baptist Fans when I get the backing together.

  3. You WILL be cold in Michigan....take layers of sweaters.... now Cali I can't say ... you sure do get around....

  4. My husband and I are heading to MI tomorrow for an 11 hour drive for one of your great classes that I have only read about. We are so excited to finally meet you in person and looking forward to a relaxing time. Safe travels to you to and if the ferry is running, I will see you soon and will need to purchase your book for class. I loaned my copy to a "friend" and now it is missing.

  5. I am not getting the page either.

  6. Love Ros' quilts! We in AZ are serious about our Bonnie quilts! I am so fortunate to have so many quiltvillians to inspire me to start just one more Quiltville quilt!

  7. I have been getting A message "page not available" for the sideshow for about two weeks now also. It is nice to know I am not the only one unable to view the sideshow.
    I am sure the quilts are beautiful, based on the one showing on the blog.

  8. Thanks for sharing Roslyn's quilts. she does such lovely work.
