I really enjoy your podcast. You do a great job. Ways that I get inspired, besides the ways you mentioned in you podcast, are my fellow quilting friends. I love my quilting groups I belong to and we get ideas from each other all the time. We will do organized block swaps and round robins, and that will stretch my creativity. I also get inspirerd by great podcasts like yours. Keep it up. Don't stop!

Episode 2 did not disappoint! Thanks for the shout outs!

just found your podcast & really enjoyed the first two episodes! I can relate to so much you talk about. Another website where I get inspiration is (I know I know, you're supposed to buy stuff, not borrow ideas!). Keep up the good work!

Just finished listening to your first two podcasts, very enjoyable. I recently completed a wallhanging that was inspired by an ad I got in the mail, so I'm with you. Inspiration can come from anywhere. Looking forward to episode 3! Good luck with your quilting and the podcasts.

Awesome awesome podcast! I'm a amateur blogger/crafter/podcaster, and your podcast has been a great help. I've only listened to the first two episodes so far; can't wait to listen to the rest. =) Keep up the good work!

Another great podcast! Thanks for the heads up on the book! As far as inspiration. I think I one of the least creative persons there is. I have to have a pattern, and then, (this goes for knitting and cooking), stray from the pattern to do my own thing. I have to have some foundation to work off first!

LOVE the podcast! caint wait to catch up! what inspires me is EVERTHING! when i walk into a store (ie hobby lobby) i will find a neat piece of fabric and a while quilt will come to mind, when playing with my kids out doors my son will bring me some flowers and i will have to take a picture of them to keep for color inspiration later on when the snow comes, driving down the interstate to yah-yah's house i will take pictures of the clouds and try to recreate the curves and billows in my quilting and paintings. life in general inspires me to be honest but if it didnt it wouldnt be much of a life.
