Ambiiiiiiiiii ,

I binge listened so hard - I have a problem.

I am not sure how I stumbled across this podcast, but I'm in love!

I'm jealous of your cool weather. I live in Queensland, for me we only get three months of cool weather. So I never know what to quilt or to do with my quilts. So I gave up after my first one.

Your podcast has reinvigorated my interest and passion. I have even ordered a copy of Home for the holidays, that I found on Amazon.

I love listening to your podcast in the car and watch you tube to see your beautiful quilts. Love from Maleny, Queensland, Australia.

Expert and Entertaining

Love this podcast! Sherri, Chelsea and Billy do a great job of sharing their latest projects, answering questions and keeping us up to date with their latest fabric designs and patterns. I watch in YouTube but now that I have found the podcast version on Apple Podcast, I can listen while sewing. A great team! Thanks for all you do to support the quilting community. 💙
