There’s an interview with me over at Reclaiming the Home and a related giveaway of a FunQuilts pattern, a box of FunQuilts notecards and a charm pack of fabrics from the Wild Bunch line. The interview is about my philosophy of homemaking and why my home life is so important to me. Come on. We’ll go over together.

What a lovely interview. I love the Julie Andrews bit. Awesome!
What a lovely blog, I will have to find quiet time later with a cup of coffee and read for a while!
I first discovered Bill & Weeks Ringle when I called FunQuilts to order two Spice Island quilt kits. It’s sooo beautiful! I had a great conversation with Bill, who told me that you two met in the city where I was living at the time.
I love your style — in quilt design, fabrics, and family life. I’ve only recently discovered your blog and read it religiously. Weeks Ringle, you are among a handful of inspiring and very real/transparent women I’d truly like to spend time with. Thank you for sharing your creativity, your joys, and your struggles with us.
I very much appreciate you. (so much that I put this on your site and on Reclaiming the Home)
I would like to thank you for such a wonderful and inspiring interview!! You have definitely encouraged me to read more of your blog and inspired me to finally get a move on those quilts that have been nagging at me, lol. I loved the story about your sensei. I think that every great woman was inspired by another great woman!! Thanks again.
I found you through Reclaiming the Home. Thanks for sharing yourself…it was so nice to ‘meet’ you. I’ll be back to visit again. Have a wonderful weekend.
Weeks, you are a constant inspiration and your wonderful modern designs continue to motivate me to find time at my sewing table (quite a challenge with a 2 year old and part time work). Thanks for sharing your vision with the rest of us.

Weeks, I enjoyed your interview on Reclaiming the Home. Thank you for offering such a great giveaway!
I just found your blog and shop through Reclaiming the Home. I thought the interview was wonderful! I love your corkboard wall idea! Something like that might just have to eventually happen in my studio space. :0)
I just finished reading your interview on Reclaiming the Home. It was really inspirational, as I am trying to gear up again for crafting (now that I have some “extra” time), and quilting is one thing I have always wanted to do. Thanks for the great interview.
I came running over when I read that you enjoy working with disabled folks. I do, too; It’s been in my bones since I was a little girl.
Then I read your interview and decided, “I like her!”
So here I am. I’ll be reading around for a while — getting comfy.
I should have known your private vision for life and family would be as inspiring as your professional/fun/creative side. Thank you for affirming my belief about family time (esp. dinner time!), for being a woman of integrity, and still be so much fun!
I’d never really thought about how difficult it must be to consider the difficulty (or not) of the quilts you put in a book. (Perhaps because I loved everything!) The first time I saw your quilts I was a fairly new quilter and it took my breath away! I loved quilting, but was not/am not much for traditional patterns. You gave my creative spirit permission and a ‘voice’. A couple of the things I’ve enjoyed about your other (1st?) quilt book, was 1) all the color options you included. They became a springboard for my own ideas. 2) While I was a beginner, your clear, detailed ideas and directions made it possible for me to follow along & I knew I’d be able to try one of the more difficult patterns after while. Thank you for sharing yourself with us!
Your interview was great. I love your clean, modern style.
Your home is beautful, inside and out. Definitely feel a spirit to your home and the way you choose to live your life. Thank you for the inspiration and the opportunity to get to know you better. Dee
So, I am a little late in commenting but I did want to through my 2 cents in. I loved the interview, “you” just came shining through and I felt honored you’d open yourself up to us all. I enjoy the balance on your blog Weeks. A good mix of inspiration, projects and of course whats going on at home, I do love hearing about Sophie and Bill’s latest project too.
