On the Radio..

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed by Rosie Gonzales, on the Quilting with Rosie Radio Show. Since this was done over the phone, I don’t have a photo of this interview, but I thought I did have a photo of the last time I was interviewed on the for a radio show. It was several years ago when I traveled to England and attended Quilts UK. I don’t remember what put the events in motion, but I ended up at the BBC radio station being interviewed by a jolly English radio host. I was wearing one of my vests, and he just kept saying, “lovely waistcoat”. When I took the vest off to show him that it was reversible, he got really excited and put out a plea to his listeners to make him a reversible vest. It was lots of fun as you can see from the photo. I’m not sure if one of the lovely English quilters obliged by making him a reversible vest.

But, let me back to the interview with Rosie. The questions begin me explaining paper piecing and the advantages. We then get into how I design the blocks and inspirations for designs. Some of the particulars about paper piecing techniques are covered too. The interview with Rosie runs about 20 minutes and is available online for the next month. You can find it at
