Welcome to The Scrapbucket Quilter's Blog.  My name is Lisa and I love to quilt.  I love designing quilts, picking out the fabrics and appliqueing most of all.   I am so excited to start my blog and decided that recapping my time at the 1st Annual Sewing Summit in SLC, UT was the perfect beginning.

Where to begin...The Sewing Summit was an awesome event that brought together like minded sewers from all over the country and even a few from other countries. We spent 3 days doing what we love, sewing and talking about sewing.  The classes were great and I made lots of new friends.  Here are a few...

 I also started a new quilt project...unintentionally that is.  I was doing a project in my applique class and ended up loving it so much that I am now designing an entire quilt around it.


The pink and gray skirt in the middle was the one I did in my applique class.















I will post more later as I make progress on the quilt.

I also met some of my blogging/sewing idols.

Alison from Cluck Cluck Sew



 






Natalia from Piece N Quilt



Amy from Diary of a Quilter









They are amazing women and amazing quilters.   I really appreciated all the insider and industry advice that I got from them.  Thanks for the experiences.

So for the next 10 days, I am going to post my top 10 favorite tips that I learned from the Sewing Summit.

#10 on my list is.......                      
Use you bathtub as your white background when photographing small items.


I photographed this one in my hotel bathtub during the Sewing Summit.  These were the first four skirts I designed for my skirt quilt.






Tune in tomorrow for #9.

If you went to the Sewing Summit, what was your impression?  And more importantly, are you going to try to go again next year?  I sure plan on making this an annual event.
