    How Do Quilters Vacation?

    How Do Quilters Vacation?

    Quilters infuse every aspect of their lives with quilting -- including their vacations. Our staff shares some quilty memories from their recent travels. From bringing handwork on a plane to visiting local quilt shops or even photographing quilts in beautiful locations, there are a lot of ways to keep your hobby close at hand and close at heart, no matter how far away you travel from your sewing room. We also chat with Carole Lyles Shaw, a modern quilter, pattern designer, and teacher. Carole shares snippets of her knowledge from 30+ years of quilting and 20+ years of teaching, including her quilting journey, how she found her quilting community, how she pivoted her business when the pandemic started, and tips for making improv quilts and thinking about your stash in a sustainable way.

Some will make you laugh out loud, some you'll relate to, and some will really make you think. We also talk about the neutral wool trend we're seeing on social media, share stories of quilters making a difference in their communities, and give ideas for sewing storage you can find at the flea market.

    Repurpose Scraps as Decor

    Repurpose Scraps as Decor

    Many quilters love scraps! And while it’s nice to save scraps for a larger scrappy quilt, sometimes it’s just as fun to use them in quick projects for your home. We're sharing creative ways to use scraps in smaller projects, home decor, and even some holiday gift ideas. Then we chat with Carla Hall, who you know from The Chew, Good Morning America, and The Food Network. She also serves as a board member for 4-H and recently expanded her love of crafting into the quilting world.

Quilty Chemist ,

Like talking with friends!

I started quilting right before the pandemic and therefore haven’t been able to join a guild or meet up with quilters near me. This podcast helps give me a sense of community and it almost feels like talking about quilting with friends who are much more experienced than I am and are able to give me lots of pointers. Thanks to this podcast I now am a subscriber to the American Patchwork magazine and I make sure to look for antique quilts in every antique store and estate sale I go to. I have also visited some of the shops that are showcased in the episodes which is super cool! I listen to the episodes in the car when I’m dropping my 3 month old off at daycare and she calms right down when she hears the hosts’ voices. I like to think that not only am I learning valuable skills but I’m also teaching the next generation of quilters every time I tune into this fantastic podcast. Thank you ladies for helping develop my passion for quilting!

I just love it!

I’ve only been a listener for a couple months-since the podcast changed hosts/format-so this review is for the newer shows. I enjoy it! The topics are interesting, helpful, and put together very thoughtfully. I’m listening to all the shows with the new format (starting season 10, I believe).

Bright spot during the pandemic

I found this podcast in March of 2020. Ever since, I look forward to new episodes on Mondays. I also go back to the plenty of older episodes and keep getting great tips each time I listen. Hearing the hosts friendly voices has been great for my stress and encourages me to keep up with my quilt projects.
