HtbaS – Episode 303

In this episode of the Hip to be a Square quilting podcast, I talk about getting my first magazine pattern published: No Regrets! I also give an update about my job situation (ugh), the Atlanta roads (more ugh), and the bags I’ve been making lately.

If you want to get a copy of the pattern for the No Regrets quilt, check out Issue 16 of Make Modern Magazine. Use code “friends16” to get a digital copy for only AU$5 until June 1!

Sunday Stash – Sampling

In a fit of… insanity? delusion? I decided to take on a literal challenge for the Bad Ass Quilters Society so I bought some fabric this week  To be fair, I’m not quite sure what the deadline is, but I suspect it’s early March. I’m still noodling on a design in the short term, though, while I’m mindlessly piecing the third sample for the quilt pattern I’m writing.

It was also playoff weekend for American football, which normally would not affect me in the least but my husband is a giant fan of the Atlanta Falcons, and they have won their game and will be playing in the Big Game on February 5. Conveniently, that’s the same day as the Sportsball Sew In! Show us what you’re sewing on social media that day with #SBSI.

I’ve finished two of the sample quilt tops and have one basted, so no finishes this week but very likely there will be a couple next weekend.  I did finish my two Saturday Sampler blocks, though! Here’s the latest Summertime Blues, and the first in the new program Great Grunge.
