    Evolution of Our Quilting Styles

    Evolution of Our Quilting Styles

    Our staff is sharing stories of how their quilting style has evolved over the years. We hope that by sharing our evolution that it encourages our listeners to think back on their own quilting journey and appreciate how far you’ve come, how your style has changed, and even reflect on some favorite projects or learnings you’ve had. Very rarely in this fast-paced world that we live in, do we take time to reflect on and appreciate our talents and to be proud of how far we’ve come, so we hope it inspires you to walk down memory lane, too.

    Dive Into Hand-Embroidery

    Dive Into Hand-Embroidery

    Happy spring! Spring is such a delightful time to be outside – the flowers start to bloom, the trees and grass turn beautiful greens, and the weather is comfortable. It’s a great time to sit outside with some handwork such as embroidery, and enjoy the weather. We explore the basics of hand-embroidery for anyone who wants to get started! We also chat with Mary from The Quilting Season quilt shop in Saline, Michigan.

Love it!

I am working on my very first quilt after having sewn clothes since grade school. I wanted to try quilting back when I was around 40 and my girls were in school, but my first experience was with a great teacher, however, I had problems being accurate and this frustrated me as I thought, if I can sew clothes, why can’t I sew quilts?! So I sold my cutting table, got rid of all the rulers and things and went back to sewing garments which I still love to do. Always in the back of my head though it has nagged me and I really wanted to make quilts.
Big difference, I guess I’m older, found a great “teacher who cheers me on, and I’ve decided to enjoy the process! No matter where it leads me. And I really am excited! I enjoy listening to your podcast while walking my dog and driving in the car , making use of that time. Learning so many new things. Thank you for all your hard work!

Newbie Podcaster

I just started listening to this podcast and I love it! I usually listen when I’m driving or quilting (or organizing!). I would like to know how I can listen to them in order from the beginning and some other tips on using a podcast. I’m usually trying to figure this out when I’m at a stoplight🚙! I have been quilting for about 45 years and I find that listening gets me motivated to head downstairs to my studio~ although I’ve heard some new ideas also.
P. S. I have every single issue of American Patchwork & Quilting from the premier issue up to now!

Change is not for me ,

Great walking companion

I love American Patchwork and Quilting podcast. I listen to it on my Monday morning walk and even if I don’t feel like exercising, I go because I look forward to the podcast. The jingle at the beginning gets me in step. I always learn something too and ‘meet’ quilting personalities I follow on social media. Thanks for making such an interesting and fun program.
