My chat with Pat

Did you get a chance to listen to my visit with Pat Sloan on May 6th?

It was such a fun experience. She really made it easy to talk, and this star struck girl was so amazed the she sounds like a "friendly, every day kind of person" and not a quilting goddess. Or maybe that's what quilting goddesses sound like....

The time just flew by, but here are a couple of things we chatted about.
PS Links to the actual podcast are below.

We chatted briefly about Minnesota spring, and May 8th gave a perfect example of why we aren't planting spring flowers or veggie gardens yet.

Here is the quilt that was inspired by my very first how-to quilting class, Pinwheel Pizzazz. You'll want to listen to that funny story!

We talked favorite color combinations, and while purple and green will probably always be my favorite, you can see I love a good patriotic colored quilt as well.

If you are looking for the Beginners Unite tab that we chatted about you can find it at the top of the page, or just follow THIS LINK.

The 2019 Monthly Color Challenge is in full swing, but there is plenty of time to join and catch up! Find all of the information HERE or just go grab your blocks on PAYHIP.

Are you looking for more information on the Broken Panes Quilt Along? You can find the post HERE. We will be starting June 4th.
