Welcome to Follower Friday!  This week's edition includes a very charismatic chick I was able to meet and sit next to at dinner one night at the Sewing Summit.  It's Elena from Breakfast for Dinner!  Simply said, she has a great style.... we bonded over our mutual love of everything Nicey Jane!  (Just look at her blog header...)  Let's learn more about her....

Sewing Summit Yearbook
Elena of Jupiter, FL

Occupation:   Marketing

Significant Other/Kids/Pets Husband: Michael, Doggie Furbaby: Seamus

# Years Quilting: 2

How you learned to quilt: I took a class at my LQS. I always told them I was only into sewing bags, but then I took this class and became addicted to quilting! My mom doesn't quite understand why I need so many "blankets", but that's just because she's not addicted....yet :)

Favorite Completed Project Description: It's definitely a toss-up between my Postage Stamp quilt and my Warm/Cool HST quilt. Although they're not exactly complete, since they're just tops, I really love how they turned out. I tend to really like designs with lines and symmetry, and these really showcase both. Making them has definitely been good practice for me matching up seams...I'm getting better! Now I just need to work on getting better at making backings and actually quilting them! I'm dying to snuggle under these!

Quilting workstation setup:  I love this little area, and my dog does, too! He usually sits by the window peeking out at passersby while I sew.

Machine(s) you sew on: Baby Lock Ellegante...bought as a trade-in at local dealer, so it was a great deal. In 2 years, I've barely used the embroidery module, but I might be getting some software for Christmas, so I'll be monogramming a lot more goodies.

Your favorite notion/tool in your sewing room: This is a tough one! I guess I'd have to say my cutting tools. My Olfa rotary cutter that gets me through so many layers and cuts, and my Gingher scissors. Those things cut through fabric like a hot knife through butter! You know what they say, those Germans make good stuff!

Thanks to AnneMarie for featuring me! I had so much fun meeting and hanging out with you at Sewing Summit! I can't wait to go back next year and spend more time with my blog-land friends in real life!

If you'd like to keep up with Elena and all that she's up to visit her blog Breakfast for Dinner,  flickr photostream and/or tweet with her @ElenaRoscoe.  Have a great weekend! Pin It
