HQ Podcast Episode 18 The Miscellaneous Episode

I took advantage of a quiet house this morning and recorded a short podcast about various subjects ~ ergo, The Miscellaneous Episode.

Sandy from the Quilting for the Rest of Us podcast commented/reminded me this week about her podcast Episode 63 where she spoke with Jaye of about Lines in Quilts.  In her blog notes, she highlighted a few Log Cabin Quilts which both she and her mother had made.  Go take a look at Sandy's photos here.   They are wonderful.

Gretchen from 120 Blocks also commented during the week about a Log Cabin Quilt that fellow quilters at her church created for a charity auction to raise funds to support missionaries.  She explained how individual quilters made blocks and how Gretchen had to "re-do" some of them and she was very clear on how she did not appreciate that process.

After a very busy morning and early afternoon, I rewarded myself with some time at the sewing machine.  My results:  my first log cabin block.  Improvisational, fun and perfect for my 12 year old niece. It was fun to move from side to side picking up a slice of fabric and placing it here or there to get the right feel.

Before I forget, I will be participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day on Monday, December 12th so please come back to see what I'm cooking up.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday,
