Great interview. We watched this as a family show. I will say the finale exhausted me. I felt like I had been sewing under the time clock too.

I hope Ann comes back in some way in Season 2.

**I'm amending this. I loved everyone on that show and would love to see anyone of them come back.

My husband is very nicely rehanging some pictures for me on his day off and needed me to check the placement of one and I was typing in a hurry.

Yoga must be the key to her success! I loved watching her keep her composure-I may add a photo of her to my sewing room

And under the photo, I'd put her words of advice: "Work slowly and methodically and enjoy the process." (Or maybe what she said about speaking firmly to the fabric. )

Thanks for keeping the conversation going, Peg. I will never tire of talking about this show (just ask DH).

Nice blog. I am glad Tilly is learning from Ann. I would be sitting at her feet learning too.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

Sigh, I didn't watch the show. However, my pants benefit from her 'flat bottom' technique. I would love to learn from her as well. Maybe she will go on tour!
