I'm on My Creative Corner Podcast!

I've made a new quilting friend! Vicki Holloway is a terrific quilter and podcaster and this week she has shared an interview with me about how I built my quilting business. Click Here to find the episode player.

If you listen to the podcast you'll learn about how I built my business from the ground up. It took many years of thinking, learning, and trying different things. There were many frustrating times when I wanted to make a living as a quilter SO BAD, but I just didn't know how to make a sustainable business.

One thing I hope I emphasized enough is how lucky I have been. I was born at the right time, the internet took off at the right time, my father-in-law bought a camera that I "borrowed" at the right time, and I married the right guy who taught me a lot about website design and then became my business partner.

I feel like so many of these things fell into place because a piece of my heart and mind was always chugging away with that single minded goal of building a successful business. If you'd like to read more about the interview click here to find Vicki's show notes.

I'll be sharing an interview with Vicki Holloway in a few weeks all about time management. Vicki is a powerhouse - she works a full time job, blogs almost daily, shares a podcast, and makes awesome quilts. Her key to getting so much accomplished is solid time management - a skill I really need to build!

We'll also be sharing a collaboration! I love collaborating with other quilters because I get to quilt something new and challenging and learn more about quilting along with you. Vicki has pieced this awesome improv quilt and I get to quilt it!

Click Here to find Vicki's tutorial on this improv quilt. I'll be sharing Vicki's podcast and the video on quilting this awesome little improv quilt next week.

You could even piece up a little improv quilt yourself and follow along with this little project! I challenge you to give it a try - improv is so freeing and fun.

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day
