Springtime in the Rockies blog tour

 
This book is super special to me. Konda asked me to be a part of it a long time ago and it's so fun to finally be able to share it with you.
 
SCRAMBLED EGGS!
 
I had developed this 'stack n whack' pattern and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.
 You know how sometimes things just happen for a reason, right!?
Well Konda called me up and told me about this book idea and I knew I had just the pattern.
And now here it is, between the covers of this fabulous book, with several other amazingly fun patterns. What's extra cool for me is I know most of the other designers personally and they are some of the most talented ladies - and I get to call them FRIENDS!!!
 
Konda has organized a blog tour so you can get a peek at all the designers and their projects. Follow along for several chances to win a copy of your own!

My favorite springtime tradition is going out to the garden to see what new flowers are sprouting every day, and also coloring easter eggs of course!

Bev said...

Wow! You are published a lot! I'm so excited for you! Love your little quilt! You know, it's kind of sad, but I was thinking about my favorite springtime tradition and I don't really have one. Thinking...thinking...thinking...nope! No springtime traditions come to mind. Well, I won't win your giveaway but I am so happy that your quilting is recognized as exceptional! Woot!

I live near the Rockies (Calgary, Canada) and I can tell you that springtime is usually cold and rainy - right up to the end of June! However, when I was younger, I loved spring skiing - if it is sunny, it can be glorious. You have to wear sunscreen, or you can get quite a sunburn.

Candice said...

Yup, we love hiking in the mountains- the fresh air, the new flowers, and warm sunshine :)

Sandra said...

Just love your scrambled eggs. So darn cute. I enjoy Easter with my Mom. We get together with our families and have a poluck for lunch and then have an Easter egg hunt with plastic eggs filled with either money or candy. My younger sister has two daughters and the youngest daughter has a 2-year old son. Just makes Easter priceless and your quilt would be ideal for him. Thank you for the chance to win that wonderful book.

Love your quilt! In the spring, I love watching the ferns sprout in the woods.

Lisa Marie said...

I don't know about traditions, but I love that time in the spring when it's finally warm enough to wear shorts, even if you have to wear a jacket with them.

Gill said...

Not sure that I have any traditions either! although we do usually drive out to see the wild daffodils flowering about 30 miles away!
This looks a great book!

Miss Jean said...

I love hitting all the nurseries and getting ready for planting all the flowers for my yard.

BizyStitches said...

Congrats. Spring time for me is flowers, warm sunshine, and the smell of fresh mowen grass. I really don't have any tradition. Thanks for the chance to win.

sandy said...

Clever little quilt, reminds me of Easter. My favorite spring thing for the past few years is returning home to my family after being away for the winter.

Yvonne said...

My favorite is searching for eggs at Easter. We used to hide them in the yard for Kelly when she was little and I can't wait for the tradition to follow on to Rosa when she will be big enough to go Egg searching!

tpott said...

I don't really have a tradition. I just love that the days last longer and, the smell of all the blossoming spring flowers. ;-> Toni Anne

Cecilia said...

The only springtime tradition I have is spring cleaning! Although it is a lot of work, it is nice to have a clean house again. :-) Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

My favorite spring time tradition is planting pretty flowers in my yard. We love impatiens and they grow well in our area. I love to see all the new growth and flowers starting their bloom. It's refreshing after the long winters sleep.

ritainalaska said...

i know it's spring when i can lower the glass in the storm doors and have the fresh spring breeze flow through the house. refreshing!

Barbara Woods said...

My favorite springtime tradition is having family over for Easter dinner. I also like coloring Easter eggs and the last couple of years i have dyed them with natural things like onion skins and spices. It is fun to see what color they end up.

Planting my window box every spring is my favorite tradition. Thanks for the giveaway!

Spring is birthday season for us. In our extended family we have 12 birthdays in a little more than a month. It's fun to have so many celebrations!

My favorite springtime tradition in Northern Norway where I come from, is to sit and look for the sun shining all night through. That happens from the May 14. and for more than 3 months, so we have many nights to choose from.

Your "Srambled Eggs" quilt is CHARMING! LOVE the spring colors! Darling idea!

Spring plant-shopping and planting are my fav traditions. LOVE shopping in the plant nurseries around Mothers' Day, then digging in the dirt, figuring out what to plant and where.

I love the feeling of rebirth in the Spring with the bulbs blooming and all the new baby animals, especially little lambs!

Carolyn Bahl said...

Spring is my favorite season. I always head to the local plant store to see the newest flowers to plant in the yard. I love lot of color in my yard all summer.

JoyceLM said...

Love the scrambled eggs quilt. Favorite spring tradition is dreaming about new flowers for the garden, and then I have to clean out the flower beds & plant the new flowers, which is plain hard work. But worth it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kate said...

My favorite spring tradition is planting the bright annuals! (Not so much fun to have to prepare the flower beds to do it, though!)

Kathy H said...

A spring tradition here is spring cleaning, especially the windows so we can see the beautiful spring flowers.

Barbara Woods said...

planting the garden

Barb said...

In years past my favorite spring thing was playing in the dirt (aka getting the garden ready for planting). Now that I am an apartment dweller, my favorite spring things are watching for the first flowers to bloom and the trees to get their first hint of green.

Jeanenne Nielsen said...

My favorite thing to do in the springtime is to see all of the pretty flowers start to grow and the grass start to grow and all of the new growth and the end of the dreary winter and gloom. I believe spring is my most favorite season of the year, because it always signals a new start to life.

CarolT said...

My favorite Spring time tradition is to eat lunch or dinner on our deck and start watching baseball since we are big Tigers fans at my house.

Your Scrambled Eggs quilt is darling...hope I win so that I can make one too! My favorite springtime tradition is coffee on the deck...and seeing spring pop before my eyes...such a beautiful time of the year:)

JCnNC said...

Favorite Spring time tradition is to rake out the flower beds and let the flowers "lose" for their Spring time show. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. JudyCnNC

Quilt n Queen said...

Congratulations Emily. The book looks like a winner. Springtime tradition....every year I plant lots of annuals and they are beautiful all summer, so I guess that would be a tradition. Thanks for the chance!

Mimi said...

I live in Northwestern Ontario and spring is usually late in coming... but what I do look forward to is the warmer weather and not having to wear layers and layers plus heavy boots!!

Lori said...

congrats on being in the book.
For me the favorite time of spring is getting the garden ready and planting.

Lee said...
