Join us on Annie's Quilting Stash!

Tomorrow {Tuesday} afternoon, you can hear our interview with Annie Smith of Quilting Stash podcast!

Kelly and I got a chance to talk with her last night and the interview will be available on her Simple Arts website tomorrow. It was so fun talking with Annie - what a sweet lady! And Kelly and I got to do the interview together via Google Hangout, which is almost too cool for words.

We talked about a few of the quilts in the book and Annie suggested we post some pictures of the ones we discussed.

This is Effie's Web, the spider web quilt Kelly talks about. She's currently making her own version, which I cannot wait to see! I really enjoy this quilt because it's a riot of color. It's busy, but it works.

This is In The Clouds, which we talk about being a great example of modern quilting. I *love* this quilt: minimal effort with huge eye-candy payoff. This quilt is a queen size, so there's a ton of negative space.

This is Midtown Girl, the NY Beauty. I refer to this piece as my quilting opus, which is to say it's the most impressive piece I've made to date as far as a project chock-full-o'-techniques. I'm going to make another version of this quilt later this year with a completely different palette. Can't wait!
I have to say that Kelly and I were much more reserved in the interview than we are in real life. We frequently have conversations that lead to laughing fits and shannigans, and I was proud we kept it together. Although, at one point Kelly did have a bit of a giggle, which she kept quiet but I could see in the video, which of course made me start laughing. Love that girl.
So leave me a comment and tell me what ya think of my radio voice. Is is smooth? Do I sound smart and sexy? Or do I sound like a rube?
 And visit Annie's site for a chance to win a copy of the book!


  1. I'm going there now to hear your beautiful voice! In case you don't know, I noticed today, that Connecting Threads has your book for sale on their website! Yay!!

  2. Love your Effie's Web! It's beautiful. I hope I win the book.

  3. Carla - I've been fuming for a couple of weeks that they haven't carried it. So relieved to see they do now!

  4. I enjoyed the interview on Annie's podcast. Thanks for sharing some of your great quilt photos.

  5. I enjoyed the podcast today and your book....just need to figure out what I did with it. Happy Quilting and Happy Holidays!

  6. I enjoyed hearing you on Annie's podcast today. I also loved your 60 degree tutorial. I think I'll have to try to make a mug rug or something bigger.

  7. I really enjoyed the podcast and can't wait to get the book! It sounds great. I'm excited to find a book on modern quilting with some more challenging patterns. :)

  8. Really enjoyed the interview. You do sound like such good friends and that was a joy to hear. I've been interested in New York Beauties but felt I could never do that. Maybe I'll give it a shot after all! Yours is gorgeous. Merry Christmas!

  9. I really liked your interview. And now I have found another blog to add to my reader!

  10. Your radio voice was just great! What a great interview! And the pictures of your quilts are beautiful, too. I've been quilting for 30 years and I do mostly traditional, but I appreciate all quilts. I'm glad something new and exciting is happening in the quilt world!
