    We're so lucky on this podcast to be able to chat with designers and quilt shop owners, and even to feature listener tips and questions!

But – we have too many people we love to fit into just a weekly podcast. So, we're going all out on this episode and each of our staff members is sharing a few quilters we admire.

    Spring-Clean Your Quilts

    This time of year is a great time to wash and clean quilts in your home (especially since they've probably gotten a lot of use over the winter months) We share tips for spot-cleaning quilts, washing and drying quilts, and favorite products to prevent damage to your quilts during the cleaning process. We also chat with Heather Briggs from My Sew Quilty Life.

    Sustainable Sewing Tips

    Sustainable Sewing Tips

    Quilters have long been known for their sustainable practices – they save the smallest of scraps, they “make do” in their projects, they repurpose clothing or feed sacks, and more. So as green living continues to be more popular and more important than ever, it’s no surprise that many quilters are asking themselves what steps they can take in their sewing lives to make a difference. We share 11 tips for making your sewing space more eco-friendly. We also share ideas for making a quilt for a picky recipient, how to organize longterm projects, and we chat with Jeannie Plant of Richland Sewing Center in Hurst, Texas.

    Create a Quilt Treasure Box

    Create a Quilt Treasure Box

    If your sewing room feels more like a museum than a functional work space, consider getting a keepsake box. We share tips for how to select a box, what types of things to put in it, and how to clear your work space from unused (but still loved) objects. We also share what an editor is working on, details of a fun new Sampler quilt we're hosting, how quilters are helping Ukraine, and tips for basting quilts in a small space.

    Give Yourself a Quilting Award

    Give Yourself a Quilting Award

    In honor of the Academy Awards, our staff shares their thoughts on what quilty award they'd win. It's nice to take the time to be proud of yourself, be impressed with your skills, and not be afraid to share it with the world! We also chat with Jen Kingwell, an Australian fabric and pattern designer, a quilt shop owner, and author. Jen shares about her journey into quilting, the inspiration behind her designs and her new book Quilt Recipes, and how she savors the stitching process.

    It's our 550th podcast episode!! We can't believe it. After more than 12 years, we've hit this momentous number. And to celebrate, we asked our listeners to submit quilting questions for us to answer. On this episode, we answer questions related to a variety of topics including choosing fabrics, fixing blocks that aren't the right size, organizing pieces for your blocks, getting a vintage sewing machine up and running, nesting seams, and more.

Good, but needs some personality

It sounds like they’re just reading from a script and “conversation” sounds too fake and scripted. Good content though!

Fantastic

This is by far my favourite of all the Quilting Podcasts. I've been listening from the beginning and I love my drive to work on Wednesdays because I have a new show to listen too.
I've started downloading all the episodes to listen to again and am learning just as much the second time round.
Thanks Pat :)

This is just the greatest show! The interviews are just fantastic as is Pat Sloan. I love finding out what all the designers are up to, how they create and where they find their inspiration. Thanks so much for such a great show! Cheers, Michelle
