Helen and Diane Interview on Quilting Stash Podcast
I've been friends with Annie Smith for some years now, and I'm a big fan of her Quilting Stash podcast. (you might also know Annie from her feature on Ricky Tims' and Alex Anderson's "Quilt Show.") I was delighted when Helen and I ran into her at PIQF last October, and even more delighted when Annie asked if she could interview Helen and me for the podcast.
Annie tells me that our interview will be posted as her new podcast TODAY, and to accompany our interview she is giving away a free copy of the Twelve by Twelve book. Anyone who comments on Annie's blog through the end of the day Saturday has a chance to win the book, I believe. Go check out Annie's site!
By the way, it's easy to subscribe to Annie's podcasts for free via Itunes. Search "Quilting Stash" and it'll pop right up. Annie has a lovely voice and chats about all-things-quilting, so it's like settling down to talk quilts with a lovely friend.
And thank you, Annie, for sharing this interview with Helen and me with your listeners!
We are twelve quilt artists who embarked on an art challenge together. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
For four years (2007-2011), we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. See our Theme Series and our Colorplay series.
For the 2012 Series, we changed things a bit and made rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches with roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we had a designated theme for each challenge.
We shared our process, progress, and results on this blog. It remains a key record of our rich collaboration.
