I'll be a guest on Pat Sloan's Podcast

Happy Monday! Just wanted to point you to some fun new Quilting Happiness stuff.

First, mark your calendars, 'cuz I'll be a guest on Pat Sloan's American Patchwork and Quilting Podcast on Monday, September 16th. 4pm Eastern, 1pm Pacific - and you can tune in right here.

I'll be talking about the genesis of the book, and how the Happiness part evolved. Pat's questions look great - should be fun!


Christina cooked up this lovely quilt design using pieces left over from one of the book's projects (The Points of Interest Quilt). You can get the free pattern for this Interesting Point Quilt by visiting the Quilting Happiness website.

...And lastly, I'll share some recent reviews and posts from around the neighborhood. My Mom made a version of The Haphazard Chevron Pillow, inspired by one of the creative exercises in the book. Her post tells the story.

Kim Fraser also did a detailed review over at the Spoonflower blog, which gives some nice previews of creative exercises in the book.

...And you can see new views of two of the quilts on Heather Lott's blog, Quilt or Stitch. Heather pieced The Odds and Ends Quilt and The Elevator Music Quilt for Christina, and she talks about her process of making them in this post.
