  1. Love your podcast! So wonderful and I hope you keep it up. I tried to stitch Colonial Garden on the Black Forest fabric and gave up too. I wanted to do it as an anniversary piece but it was impossible. I may attempt another black fabric in the future.

    If you want to go to the big Houston Quilt Festival – I have an extra room!
