After Scott designed his first quilt at age 14, he did more typical teenage activities like learning to drive, working, college and figuring out how to talk to girls. He found the girl of his dreams after college and has been married to his wife, Linda, also an artist, for over 29 years. They settled down in the countryside northeast of Seattle…..
Washington and raised three kids and numerous chickens, ducks, cats and one dog. Scott kept planting trees as well — just slightly faster than the local deer were able to mow them down as he has always loved the forests in the area.
This picture lives on my bulletin board – taken years ago when the family was on vacation at Disneyland. Of course those kids are now in their 20’s and all grown up.
Scott was featured in the May/June 2018 issue of Quiltmania – I opened my magazine and just screamed! I made sure Reed saw the article, too.
Whenever Scott teaches or is interviewed he thanks Country Threads which is such an honor. He was teaching in Alaska when he was able to join in a mystery that was also taking place. He did it in what he calls his Country Threads colors! Ha! I love it, too!
We are happy to call Scott “Friend”. I hope you can find his new batiks and if not go to Northcott online where I’m sure you’ll find a list of retailers who are carrying it.
I hope to show you my quilt using the batiks with plaids.
P.S. does anyone make baked custard? My recipe says 1hour at 300 but mine seems to take 90 minutes at 350 before the knife comes out clean. I love custard, always have eggs but I just don’t know how to bake it and I can’t ask Mom. Can anyone help ?
