Blast Off – Sandi Blackwell, Stitched Buy

Today’s guest blog hopper is Sandi Blackwell of Stitched Buy. Sandi is kept busy with her Craftsy classes, patterns, teaching and her stack of books. The most recent is pictured below. Sandi created the Square-agonals technique of making on-point quilts without all those pesky triangles. Simply sew squares and rectangles together, make a few well placed cuts, reassemble and…viola…on-point quilts. It’s pretty cool.

Sandi and I first met several years ago when she was doing bus trips and we made special arrangements for her guests at a quilt show where I was vending. Her guests got the star treatment in our booth and I got a great way to get folks into my booth, usually one of their first stops. It has worked wonderfully many times over the years. Big thank you to Sandi for helping me to create a great marketing strategy!

I had a chance to sit down with Sandi on my recent trip to Salt Lake City and catch up. Did we get a photo? No. But here we are in 2013 sneaking in some chit-chat amongst the crowds. We both had longer hair back then!

Sandi will also be the guest teacher for our April 2017 retreat. We’ll be together for a weekend…think we can manage to get a photo? Time will tell…

  1. Tonight I think we\’ll be having Bacon/Lettuce/Tomato sandwiches. Probably not so healthy, but oh, so tasty, especially with fresh lettuce from our garden.

  2. I have chicken in the oven, along with potato biscuits and zucchini. I also made a peach cobbler for friend who are coming over tomorrow!

  3. I made the recipe a bit easier than the recipe called for. Begin cooking brown rice. Brown 2 chicken breasts (cut into cubes) in olive oil, remove from pan. Add a bit more oil to pan, sear 1\” asparagus pieces for 3 minutes. Combine chicken to asparagus, add 1/4 cup (or so) of ginger salad dressing. Stir. Serve over rice.

    Supper was a protein bar because I was between cello lesson and agility practice with my dog for a full evening. And yes, I do get quilting time in. It was sewing one long seam for a quilt. Tomorrow will finish putting the top together. 10 minutes a day is progress!
