The wedding quilt – at last! I made this quilt for my sister-in-law and her new husband, who is really tall! When I learned that they were planning to purchase a California King size bed, I super-sized my design!

  1. Enjoying the content of your podcast but having a little problem hearing it. Can you ramp up the sound? Sound can be turned down but if it is too soft it is hard to get the voices to be loud enough to hear.

    Might be because of how most people listen… iPods / MP3 players can only be turned up so high and I can not use the speakers when I am exercising… machines are noisy.

    I tried listening in the car by the heater and road noise drowned you out… My car is kind of old and does not have the connection that would allow me to hook into car’s speaker system ( a function on newer cars.)

    Most effective way to listen to you was to burn disc and listen on the car speaker system via the cd player. Even then to hear your voices I have to crank the system full blast … and no I am not deaf.

    If you are using AUDACITY try increasing the volume when recording. I am not sure if you can in other software but I am sure there is a way.

    THANK YOU NONNIE,

    Keep the conversation flowing… LOVE listening to you two.

  2. I’m wondering if you have any more info on using the lapel stick for curved piecing? A link maybe, showing the technique? Curves scare me but if there’s something that can make it easier, I’m all for it!
