It's been a few weeks since I last posted, weeks I was away on vacation and at a big librarian convention, weeks during which I've done some quilting, but not a lot. But the engines are revving, the needle is moving, and the Birds in the Air blocks are lining up on the wall ... for pictures, go to http://www.offkilterquilt.com

As I start thinking about marketing Birds in the Air, I've gotten interested in how different quilty-type people use social media. Some are sellers, selling themselves in order to sell their products, some are sharers making an effort to create community, and a few special few are both.

In this episode, I rely heavily on the transition "anyhoo" as I discuss my current projects as well as the concept of "eyeballing it" when it comes to deciding whether or not you're in violation of copyright law, and my exciting news about my Birds in the Air book tour kick-off--hello, Atlanta!
In this episode I discuss straight-line quilting and the importance of following the wonk of your block. Yeah, you heard that right!

So I went to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park to break the Guinness world record for number of quilters sewing outdoors. If the current record is less than 20, then we did it!

In episode 185, we talk some more about the VFW quilt, made-fabric and big stars. Also: why no one knows quilters exist. For a special treat, I read you some quilt stories from the Michigan Quilt Project book. To see pix, go to www.offkilterquilt.com.
This week we talk about what we talk about when we talk about QuiltCon. And then we talk about quilts I'm working on. Good talk all around!
