Letting you know it's time to get ready for #BFSI! In this episode, I talk about a finish, a near finish, a I-wonder-if-I'll-finish-it-in-time-for-Christmas, and a it-has-a-snowball's-chance-in-h-e-double-hockey-sticks of ever getting finished.
It's snowing! And that means pretty, pretty colors spring to life in my basement. In this episode, I announce the winners of the 2015 Quilty Resolutions Giveaway and a throw-down-the-gauntlet challenge between me and Sandi of Quilt Cabana Corner podcast and blog involving snow-dyes. I also talk about the possible chance of a meet-up in Kansas in June. I give an update of my current quilty projects, talk a little bit about reading plans for 2015, and do some listener feedback.

I'm skipping the "travelogue" portion of report on my trip to Burma/Myanmar for now (and explain that a little bit in this episode). Meanwhile, back to our regularly scheduled programming--it's time for 2015 Quilty Resolutions! In this episode I give a Sandy Update about what I'm currently working on, as well as a summary of how I did on my own 2014 quilty resolutions. Then I announce the 2015 Quilty Resolution Challenge!
I'll have a submission form and Rafflecopter up on my blog sometime before the end of this week so you can enter my 2015 Quilty Resolution Challenge Giveaway. Have fun thinking of what you want to do!
In this episode I explain a bit about my yet-another-absence, talk about meetings of the minds with fish, a bit about eggs and pasta, a lot more about quilty projects, and do some listener feedback.
In this episode I talk about why it's been so long since my last episode. There's also a little bit about pasta, purple scarves, Scrapitude, and coloring with colored pencils.

2014 is halfway in the bag! How did I miss that? In this episode, I announce (officially) the Second Quarter 2014 Quilty Resolutions Check-in Giveaway and Linky party. It's on my blog--click here for the actual post with the Rafflecopter giveaway and linky party. (The deadline is next Saturday.) I also give a Sandy update, and then talk about my own quilty resolutions and what staying focused has helped me to achieve so far this year.
In this episode, I start with another in the "12 mistakes to learn from" series of 2014; then we move on to announce a newcomer in the podcasting world (woot!), give an app review, talk about luminosity in quilts, and some yummy yummy thread I've been using lately.
- Check out Jinny Beyer's Borealis quilt.
- This link *should* take you to Pinterest and a search results page for "Luminosity quilts." (If it doesn't work--you're on your own to use the search engine on Pinterest and see what turns up!) My favorites, mentioned in the episode, are "It's About Time" by Janet Stedman and "Lattice Works VI" by Carol Olsen

In this episode I talk about an extraordinarily productive weekend! Leaving for Lancaster on Tuesday makes a great deadline for me to get a lot done. I talk about my Disappearing Pinwheel, my Scrapitude quilt, some more work on the postcard, and getting class supplies and cutting done for Lancaster. And, of course, a little listener feedback.
In this episode, I announce the 2014 Quilty Resolution First Quarter Check-in, then talk about Scrapitude, spa-days, and the Shape-Cut ruler. I also give a brief review of the Great Courses lecture series "How Colors Affect You: What Science Reveals" (which I mistakenly referred to as "The Science of Color" in the episode), and talk about three fitness-related apps: FitBolt, EarnedIt, and Every Move.
In this episode, I've actually gotten some stuff done! I talk about what I've accomplished recently and how I'm setting myself up for success in achieving my goals in 2014. There's also a few recommendations and reviews.
Mentioned in this episode:
Podcast: Old Time Radio Mysteries
Deb Hunter's Rapid Fire Hunter Star Ruler (Petite Star)
It's that time of year again! In this episode I give the parameters for my 2014 Quilty Resolutions Challenge. Get ready to accomplish some key things in 2014! I also review two Craftsy classes:
Creative Quilt Backs with Elizabeth Hartman
Piece, Patch, Quilt: Basic Quiltmaking Skills with Gail Kessler
Here's the link to submit your 2014 Quilty Resolutions--but be sure you've listened to the episode first to hear the parameters for this year!
And here's what one lucky entrant randomly drawn will win! Five (count 'em, 1-2-3-4-5!) fat quarters!
In my opinion, these would make a great purse.
And if someone wanted to make said purse and then gift it to one of their favorite podcasters whose podcast's acronym is QFTRU, that would not be frowned upon. Tee hee.
So fill out your quilty resolutions using the link above, and have your name entered in the drawing for this great fabricy goodness!
Honey, I'm home! I'm back from AQS QuiltWeek in Paducah, KY, and lived to tell about it. More or less. In this episode, I describe my experiences in Paducah, including a meet-up with a listener, scalping tickets to a class, and a conversation with a very nice police officer. Oh, and quilts. Plus I announce the winners of my 3rd Podcastaversary Giveaway, and what's up for the next episode! Thanks for listening!
In this episode, I announce the new Project Hope Online Quilt Show that Sandi Colwell of QuiltCabanaCorner and I are co-hosting; I also let you know about a new-to-me app and what's going on in my life, as well as giving a little preview of my trip to AQS QuiltWeek at Paducah tomorrow.
