I am delighted to have interviewed my good friend Pat Wys for the Aurifil Designer of the Month event! She is "Miss September'!
Pat is super talented, a great friend, and super fun! PLUS an incredible hostess! I had the honor of being invited to her home for a huge dinner party .. complete with fine china and crystal.. it was an amazing evening!
Her block and it's meaning is so touching.. you may need a tissue for this one..oh my gosh! And you'll learn a few things about her you might not know!
I tried out 2 colorways for my block. one with orange, and the other will be with cream. At this point in the quilt I really am working to balance the colors.. only 3 more blocks after this!
Welcome September!! I have to tell you, this summer has not felt like any other here in Northern Virginia. It has been so mild and beautiful, normally we would have had scorching heat and humidity in August, but instead I felt like I was in Maine with cool mornings and evenings.. and highs of only 80 or so.
I feel September's arrival is going to be interesting.. I'm hoping we continue with this beautiful and amazing weather on this labor day 2014!
Today we have an Encore show as all my guests are taking the day off! During the time the show normally airs live, we are running the Monday 12th of August 2013 show with guests Lisa Calle, Jessie Aller, Kim Niedzwiecki and Roseann Kermes.

1- Since my Radio show airs at a time a lot of people can't listen live, most of you wait for the podcast. So I've decide to post the show on Tuesday Morning and embedded the player above EACH TIME.. that way you can just click and listen!
The shows are always listed on my Podcast page, the link is on the top navigation bar, and it takes you HERE
2- When I'm traveling, I'm going to be running a series called 'Featured Friend'. I'm going to ask my quilt friends to share something with me, and I'll post it. It's a wonderful way for me to honor my friends work and for you to meet them!
3- My Globetrotting Block of the Month with FreeQuiltPatterns.info has been such a HUGE success that they asked me to do this for them again in 2015! I'm SO honored and excited to create another Block of the Month mystery quilt in 2015. The supply list will be available in December.. so stay tuned! We still have the October setting and I'll be checking in with you all through November to see if you get this quilted, I know you can do it!
