In no certain order:

  • Started my Moda Bake Shop sample submission and working on that while I wait on the flannel backing to come in
  • Worked on a dog agility ribbon holder and loved how the appliqué turned out
  • A quick baby quilt was made for a co-worker
  • My sixth anniversary was celebrated with a trip to Orlando
  • I got a new job!

  1. Katie,

    I find AUDACITY to be a flighty unstable software program. I find it best to save multiple files and just edit one. That way I never loose the entire podcast. Since I have to edit over several nights prior to posting each night I save two versions when I close down the computer. It saves me from a lot of tears.

    Awaiting a new podcast patiently.

  2. What size blocks did you start with on your Grandmother's flower garden quilt?

  3. Those are the 1" Hexagons from PaperPieces.com. They have smaller ones but I wanted a larger "petal". You use a 2.5" square of fabric with a hexagon that size.

    Hey Katie,
    Could you do a podcast about how you got started in quilting, blogging and Podcasting?? I think that would be so fun to listen to!

  5. @Sassy – some of that was covered in my Episode one of my podcast! You can download all my previous episodes here:

  6. Hi Katie – sorry I am a little behind with your episodes but still wanted to say hi. Also I use a UK website for batting / wadding and it has a great sheet comparing different types of wadding. for a course I have just completed I had to go through and experiment differnet types of wadding and found it really helpful. You can find the pdf file at http://www.asding.com//index.php?main_page=document_general_info&cPath;=106&products;_id=370
