Warning: This is a rambly episode.

My QuiltCon rejects:

 

The book that changed my life: Liberated Quiltmaking by Gwen Marston

I got The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg for Christmas, and as I hoped, it was absolutely charming!

    I haven’t listened yet, but I know I will love the episode because I always do. And I should win the book because it has got my name on it!

    I LOVE the circular quilting! I may have to try it sometime, although the first circle scares me! Any tips?- Haven’t listened to your podcast yet- perhaps you have already shared your secrets?? I believe someone in the Twilter group has already read your book and has recommended it.

    I would be honored to win a copy! I really enjoyed your first book and was inspired to try to write my own little story that’s been floating around in my head.

    Frances I just read “Margaret Goes Modern” so I don’t need to win a copy; however, I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed each story. I am inspired enough to blow away the dust from my sewing machine I think. Happy New Year to you and your family.

    Another special podcast! I thoroughly enjoyed your new book over the holidays, reading during stolen moments amidst the chaos of a house full of company.

    Happy New Year! I love listening to your podcast. I’m fascinated by your generosity in sharing your life and quilting process with the unknown public. I compose bits of websites and podcasts in my head, which will not see the light of day due to my cowardice and sloth. I would love to read your new book.

    I LOVE your sit-in quilt!! Especially the name. Sorry QuiltCon couldn’t see how great it was.
    I just finished an Elizabeth Berg novel and was very disappointed. Think it was called Year of Unexpected Pleasures (actually I know that is not the title…but it was something like that). Maybe with your recommendation, I will try her new one.
    Just downloaded Margaret goes Modern. I’m looking forward to reading it.
    I love getting your podcast and am a frequent commentor (in my head) but you hear those, right?
