In this episode, I announce the new Project Hope Online Quilt Show that Sandi Colwell of QuiltCabanaCorner and I are co-hosting; I also let you know about a new-to-me app and what's going on in my life, as well as giving a little preview of my trip to AQS QuiltWeek at Paducah tomorrow.
We're on a roll! Two episodes in a row in the design series. Yippee! In this episode, we follow up our discussion about shape with conversation about form. And we leave you with some more existential questions to keep you awake at night. I also talk about some new apps I've been trying out, my trip to Keepsake Quilting, and do some listener feedback.

Apps mentioned in this episode:
My Inventory (Droid)
iStorage--when I downloaded this app, it was called iStorage. It has since changed its name (since there's an iStorage app that's cloud storage), and is now called Items & Storage & Inventory Lite.
I got to play on a longarm and loved it! In this episode, I describe my experience playing with a longarm machine at my LQS. I also talk about a great Etsy purchase, review two books, briefly update you on my quilting life, and do some listener feedback.
In this episode:
Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Sweden (Taunton Press, 2011)
The Art Quilt, by Penny McMorris and Michael Kile (1986 edition reviewed; link goes to an edition published in 1996)
I'm back! In this episode, I announce the winners of the last two weeks of giveaways for my two year podcastaversary, talk a little bit about my vacation, give a couple of non-quilty recommendations, and do some listener feedback. I had fun being away, but it's nice to be home!
I just came back from a road trip to North Carolina State University to see the "Textiles of Exile" exhibit at the Gregg Museum. In this episode, I describe my experience seeing works of textile art created by immigrants, refugees, and displaced persons. Incredible. Also in this episode: The winner of the drawing for the hand-dyed embellishments and pattern from quilt teacher Karen Lee Carter; listener feedback; Sandy Update, and more information on the Two Year Podcastaversary month of giveaways!
