    Happy Belated Birthday week. I love to listen to your pod casts. You have such a positive energy that comes through the podcast like I am listening to a friend. I just wanted to let you know the hardest pattern that I have attempted to date is called Sushi Rolls, by Lee Fowler. Lee Fowler was a great teacher, I just don’t care that much for Y seams and it was covered in them. I ended up giving my uncompleted quilt to a friend who also took the class and was going to incorporate my fabrics into her quilt.
    Thanks again for an excellent pod-casts.
