Celebrity Interview

Pat Sloan has interviewed me for her blog. Click here to read it: http://patsloan.typepad.com.: She calls these "Celerity Interviews". Becky's interview will be on Pat's blog in early November. Pat's blog is an interesting read.  There are more interviews on her site. To read them scroll down the right side of column and you will find Celebrity Interviews link.  Visit Pat's web site for wonderful ongoing projects. She even does a radio program. http://PatSloan.com

Being referred to as a celebrity was nice. I may get the big head. 

I have been busy making pillows for my sister's birthday. This is a big birthday. The applique pillow above with the bird on it gives you a sneak preview of the next BOM. 

I had not done pillows in years. The ruffle one I did the hard way by sewing two rows of basting stitches and then gathering the stitches by hand. The gathering foot I had was for my old Bernina. I advise you to use a gathering or ruffle attachment for your machine. It took way too long to do it the old way. 

The gathered cording was tedious.  I found out after I did the cording that there was also a foot to make gathering on cording easier. You all probably all ready knew this. All I can say is I make quilts and seldom have the time to make anything else. I think I need to take a refresher class on the attachments for my Bernina. No telling what else is out there. 

Blessings Linda

Linda, I love your pillows. I've just purchased your Aunt Millie's Garden pattern and was pleased to find your interview. Thanks for taking time to do the interview. I look forward to seeing Becky's next month.

LOL! You are funny! The pillows are beautiful, and I am sure your sister will love them :-)
I really like the bird-design, that is sooo cute :-) I never thought of making just one block for a pillow (clever me, huh?!), but that is such a great idea to get started. I find that making handsewn blocks for an entire quilt is just way too much for me to even try right now, so I haven't really started anything yet. But I could make a pillow. After I finish the giftbags, that is :-)
Now I'm off to the PatSloans site....and....you are a celebrity!!
