I was just at a quilting class and a lady there confessed that she didn't really like yo-yo quilts. I could see Yo-yo's being a nice applique for a lot of different quilts, even though I haven't made any myself. I thought it was an odd week for them to say that when I haven't even thought aobut yo-yos until today and today is "double yo-yo" day.

Thanks for all the tips about ironing. I still really enjoy your podcast and listening to you and reading your blog. Keep up the good work.

Haven't posted a comment in a while & just wanted to say I'm still here, listening and enjoying all your podcasts. While I also love listening to music when I sew, I'm always excited when one of my favorite "quilting podcasters" posts a new episode. Then I can listen to someone talk about my favorite activity while I'm doing it!!

FYI - I use a lint roller to clean my cutting mat - gets all the fuzz and stray threads off and the mat looks like new!
