Recently I took a road trip home to check on the parental units. No one was available to ride along, so I downloaded some new-to-me quilty podcasts to keep me company. I am usually the passenger in the car reading a book, stitching binding on a quilt or napping under a quilt which is what I prefer. However, listening to interesting quilting conversations made all the difference in the world. The trip seemed so much shorter and bearable.
|Trip Around the World block|
Do any of you have a favorite quilt-themed podcast? Even on a normal day, I am in the car quite a bit so I am could use some suggestions. On my road trip I listened to American Patchwork and Quilting with Pat Sloan and The Quilt Cast with Amy Ellis and April Rosenthal. I loved them both! One had great interviews and the other was like listening to friends chatting about quilting. I was inspired by them all.
Our Orlando MQG selected the scrappy trip around the world block for February's block lotto. I fell in love with this block when the #scrappytripalong was all the rage on Instagram but resisted because of other projects in the works. I was glad for a reason to give this block a try, pulled out some precut 2.5" strips and went to sewing.
I didn't win the block lotto so I think more scrappy trip around the world blocks are in my future. I NEED a quilt for my bed made with these blocks!
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching,
