Hey- guess what?? Today at 4 pm EDT (that’s New York City time) I’ll be on the American Patchwork and Quilting Podcast with Pat Sloan! If you are not familiar with it, this is an internet radio show hosted by Pat Sloan over at the All People Quilt website- and it’s an hour of fun and useful information related to the quilting and sewing world.

This will be my 4th visit to Pat’s show- and I still get really nervous!! On today’s show, we will be talking about ideas for uses for orphan blocks. What’s an “orphan block”??? Well, it’s one of those blocks that don’t turn out quite right, sometimes they are a little wonky, or the color placement isn’t quite right, or sometimes the block turns out beautifully but it just doesn’t “play” well with the blocks or borders in a project. While I am developing a block of the month project, I end up with A LOT of orphan blocks- right now I have a pile of them sitting in my studio waiting for a new project to call “home.”

We will also be talking about my BRAND NEW Free Block of the Month, called Cozy Afternoon. Are you signed up yet? It’s going to be even more fun than last time (can you handle that, lol???)  To sign up to get your FREE block patterns, just fill out the box in the upper right, or click here for more information.


Don’t forget- I am still looking for Featured Bloggers for the Block of the Month blog hops. Would you like to be a blog hop “hostess” and do you have a blog that you’d like me to consider? Please click here for details– hurry- I’ll be choosing the blogs soon!

(So today, Pat will be interviewing me… but do you remember that time just a few weeks ago when I interviewed HER???)


So don’t forget- we have a “date” at 4 pm today! Hope you’ll join us!!!
