I've been so excited about this episode for so long! C&T Publishing gave me the opportunity to review the book Art Quilt Maps, by Valerie Goodwin, and connected me with her for an interview as well. Have fun listening to our conversation! The usual announcements start things off, but then we'll get right into the interview--I'll then give my own review of the book and talk about working on my own art quilt map after, plus the usual Sandy Update and listener feedback.

Check out Valerie's website at www.quiltsbyvalerie.com, or "like" her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ArtQuiltMapsETC.

And now for the giveaway!

I have read this book several times now (as you'll hear in the episode), and am thankful to C&T for making a copy available for me to share with a lucky listener!

Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter your name for this giveaway--note you can increase your chances by leaving a comment on the blog and tweeting the giveaway as well! (If you leave a comment in the blog, use the Rafflecopter widget to let me know that. Simply leaving a comment without also using the widget won't cue me that you've entered.)

A winner with a U.S. mailing address will receive a print copy of the book; if the winner has an international mailing address, s/he will receive an ebook version. '

The giveaway closes on Saturday, January 4th, at midnight (Eastern).

Episode 120 In Which We Get Fused

Having tested my feed, I now feel confident this one will work just fine! In this episode I update you on my progress with Laura Wasilowsky's Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts in Craftsy, make a mini-not-quite-an-announcement-yet about my Third Podcastaversary Giveaway, explain my new website, and some listener feedback.
