Hey there! I’m so excited that Pat Sloan has asked me to be on the American Patchwork & Quilting Podcast next week! You can listen to it live this Monday, August 12th, at 4:00, or download the podcast at your convenience any time after that. We’re going to chat about my fabric, the DC Modern Quilt Guild, English Paper Piecing, and who knows what else. I was lucky enough to meet Pat in person a few months ago and she’s really a fun lady. Check it out!
I also wanted to share some inspiration pics today-
These are my favorites from the collection of 1930s quilts on display this year at the Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA. My extended family and I have been meeting at that show for years now and it’s always a great time!
(I wish the photos were better, but the lighting in the convention center was so awful, that this is the best my camera could do! I thought the quilts were awesome enough that their beauty would shine through the grainy photos )
These kinds of quilts always inspire me to persevere. Isn’t the star quilt amazing? Made from humble fabrics, what stops you in your tracks is just imagining how long it must have taken.
