Quilted Cupcake Episode 37 Show Notes: Wonky Quilting Ideas and Tips

I'm finally back from my trip - wanted to post the Show Notes for Podcast Episode 37  on Wonky Quilting (at bottom of this post). 

I started a new Flickr Group: Pets on Projects  - this is the group where you can post pictures of your pets enjoying your handmade creations - that is, adding themselves to the photos you're trying to take of your crafty projects.  Here are a few that are in the group:

It started with a few of my Dusty on projects photos:

Now, there are 48 pictures in the pool.  Here's Wiener on a Wiener by Regiana

Runner Ducks shows us that kitties love quilts, too

Here's a link to one of my favorites by Louise as I have so many like it.  Do you have any you'd like to add?  Please feel free - jump over to the Flickr group and go for it!  These pics just make me smile!

First time listening and enjoyed it so much! So interesting and informative. Looking forward to going back and listening to past episodes. I'm a new quilter so was very happy to stumble upon your podcast. Thanks for your hard work.

That link made me laugh. I stalked my dogs for a month trying to get good pictures to enter in the Pets on Quilts show. I went right over and joined the group, I'll go back later and share my babies. Thanks.
