Not Quite June Cleaver Interview - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Not Quite June Cleaver Interview

Susan Dahlem, author of Not Quite June Cleaver, asked to interview little ol’ me on her blog. It’s kind of strange and nice to be on the other side of the table! Go visit her blog, if not to actually read about me, to leave some comment love for Susan. Plus, a comment on the interview gets you entered to win this neat little prize pack of patterns, honoring Susan’s favorite vice (aprons!), and who knows, we might even have a coupon posted there as well…hmmm!

The prize pack has some Bari J in there, some ModKid Boutique, some Bunnyhill, Heather Bailey… good, good stuff!

Have a great weekend, and see you back on Monday when we conclude our Schnibbles giveaway! (So yes, you do have time to finish your quilt tops and take pictures!)

Good luck!


  1. Thank you again KIM! And the entries are adding up. Everyone is say the sweetest things about you! And love your shop! As do I!

  2. So nice to "see" you….love the store and how you have your website organized…Love the photos…makes it easy to shop online!

  3. That was a fun interview, Kim. It's always interesting to learn more about someone who is touching so many other lives. And a very generous giveaway, too!

  4. I loved the interview! And you really kept your promis, why you wanted to start a webshop!
    I also liked the part where you say that one of your favorite things is also the TV. Not many people admit that, I think, at least not in the Netherlands.
    I finished my Schnibbles top today so will blog about it tonight. Once again a great pattern to make!!!

  5. Loved the interview, and getting to 'see' you. I've always dreamed about actually going to the Fat Quarter Shop to see all the fabrics. Alas, I guess I didn't realize that your store was online only. I visit your shop every day, and love your choices. Thank you! You're the best!

  6. Oh Kimberely that was a great interview! It was so nice to get to know you a little! I too did not realize your shop was online only or that you had such little little ones! I don't know how you do it! Thanks so much for you and your shop (and kuddos to your staff too!) I look forward to meeting you IRL one day!
