Today I'm running a favorite encore show. If you have never listened to my show i hope today you do! I do a fun and casual hour of quilting tips, tools and backgrounds.

I spend a lot of time looking for designers to interview, what a fun job right? Free patterns from my guests Jennifer Heynen, Erin Harris, and Cheryl Arkison, links are at the end!...

Caroline I have! They are two very different products as Aurifil is 100% cotton and YLI Silk is 100% silk. The 80wt Aurifil is finer than the 50wt Aurifil. So it does make it more like the silk as it is thinner for handwork.

Block 61/100 of our Splendid Sampler sew along is my 'Traveler' pieced block. When i was designing this block I wanted to document and share a part of my design business that the Shipping Department and I do which takes up about a Third or more of our year, which is a lot of time! That's travel We drive to give talks, teach workshops and visit you in your hometown. Gregg spends even more time than I do on this as he is the person that manages all of our event planning.

I love the story behind the makers. That has to be one of the more exciting parts of my job, hearing your stories.

Their mission is to preserve the stories of quiltmakers. They do interviews by documenting by video and they also write up the stories of makers. Several times a year they run events. They run a yearly challenge to raise funds. People bid on quilts, and I entered that one year, it... Continue reading
