    Fussy-Cutting Tips

    Fussy-Cutting Tips

    Fussy-cutting refers to the process of selectively cutting pieces from fabric to highlight a certain design or motif. We're sharing tips for adding fussy-cut fabric to your quilt, including choosing fabrics, making your own cutting template, sewing them into a quilt, and working with panel prints. We also chat with Riane Menardi Morrison (of Riane Elise) about hand-quilting, her design process, and her new book.

    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.

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.

My go-to podcast for everything quilting!

I never miss an episode! I love all the tips and tricks, from sewing, to organizing and time management. I love how open they are to new ideas and how kind they are to share with all of us. I ALWAYS learn something new, and I cannot wait for Monday morning to listen to it on my commute. Highly highly highly recommend! Thank you for all you do! Elena from @quilting.in.romania

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).
