    458. How to Sew with Plush Fabric

    On today's episode, we're sharing tips for working with plush fabrics -- plush makes the coziest quilts, but it can be a challenge to work with, so we hope our tips help! Then, we're going back to basics to learn tricks for making triangle-squares. Our April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting just came out and it's getting a lot of buzz because it contains our next quilt-along quilt. We'll be sharing some important details for everyone looking to join in! And since it's the week of Valentine's Day, we're sharing a cute poem to sewing machines. We also chat with Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner about fat quarters, fabric storage, and more!

    457. You Bought an Antique Quilt. Now What?

    It's so exciting to own an antique quilt (whether you've inherited one or bought one in a store), but you need to treat them a little differently than you would a new quilt! On this episode, we're sharing how to repair, care for, wash, store, and display your antique quilts! We also share tips for working with a longarm quilter, a quilting book series we're loving, and tips for applique. Then we chat with Renee Nanneman -- it's a conversation you don't want to miss.

    We're sharing how handwork can help you slow down and unplug in this rushed society -- handwork is not only fun, but has a variety of health benefits that we'll share with you today. We also share what product we're loving now, ideas for organizing the junk drawer in your sewing room (we all have them!), and how to help the people and animals affected by the Australian wildfires. Then we chat with Monique Jacobs about her fabric lines with Maywood Studio, her stash-busting video series, and how she got started in the quilting industry -- it's a conversation you don't want to miss.

Quiltnlinda ,

Great inspiration!

I love listening to the All People Quilt podcast while I commute in the car and look forward to the new shows each week. The interviews are fascinating and I learn a lot of new things. And I like that the links are easy to find in the show notes in case I want to learn more about the conversation once I am not driving.

Really love this podcast

I am a new quilter at my semi-retired age and this podcast has many many tips, ideas, wonderful guest speakers and I often feel as thought I am within the conversation. It has also introduced me to well known quilters, artists and techniques. I look forward to each podcast
