Blogger Choice: Scott Hansen - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Blogger Choice: Scott Hansen

The Fat Quarter Shop and Scott Hansen have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Scott Hansen has specially selected 12 of his favorite prints along with 3 coordinating solids from our store for this special bundle found only at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Q: What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: I plan on working up my Split Pea Soup pattern in this bunch with maybe some more scraps from my collection. The original pattern was published in a Fons and Porter Easy Quilts a few years back, and now I am aiming to self-publish and sell the pattern (wholesale and retail). I am loving the orange/blue/grey combo of this bundle I pulled together for Fat Quarter Shop. My daughter is horrified! (She really can’t stand blue and orange together.)

Here is a sneak- peek of the quilt. You can see more on my blog.

Q: What quilt project are you currently working on?
A: One project? ha ha! Well, I am working on my book with Alicia’s Attic (Marci Baker Publishing), but I can’t show you anything from that yet…well maybe the tiniest sneak-peek.

At the moment, I am also working with David Butler and his new line Curious Nature from Free Spirit on some projects that have not been solidified yet.

I have been doing these little 3″ log cabins in a swap with 6-8 other quilters for the last few months. Don’t have time for it, but it is just fun, you know?

I am just finishing up getting some quilts done for Bumble Bean Basics with Victoria Wolfe and Pat Sloan in New York City.

And there’s always the other 679 projects I have written on scraps of paper and in my head….oh, and I am in the Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along over at Quilting Gallery too!

Hot Seat:
1. jelly roll or layer cake
2. planned or scrappy
3. prints or solids

Leave a comment on this post choosing one of each pair you think Scott would have selected. Answer correctly and you will have a chance to win one of his Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundles.
You have exactly one week from this post till the contest closes.

Good Luck!

  2. jelly roll.planned.prints.
    I am so uninitiated in the various uses of jelly rolls vs layer cakes, that is a total guess…fun to try tho! beautiful bundle!

  3. It's gotta be layer cake, scrappy and prints. Blue and orange are my hottest colors right now. I've been in an orange mood since summer. Sometimes with pure blues and other times with teals and aquas. Love em!

  4. Basing my reply on the photos, I'd say jelly roll, scrappy, and prints! Love the bright colors. Thanks for the chance to win! Carol in Idaho!

  5. I am guessing….
    Layer cake,

  6. Oh man, I love these colors. And I heart Curious Nature too. Can't wait for that line to come in.

    My guesses are:

    Layer Cake

  7. 1. Layer cake 2. Planned 3. Prints. I understand the daughter, I wouldn't have put those colors together. However seeing them on my screen, the colors really do pop.

  8. Layer cake, planned, prints
    These guessing game questions are painful as usually guess incorrectly. But, here goes BECAUSE… I love orange and blue together. O&B are my mother's college colors so grew up with O&B, and they became my college colors too!

  9. My guess is layer cake, planned, and prints.

    I just love the blues and oranges together. Thanks for a chance to win.
