HtbaS 311 – Quilting for Good, Magazine Fame, Books, and Cats

In this episode of the Hip to be a Square quilting podcast I talk about the current state of cats at my house (all good), some upcoming home improvement work, the outrageous cost of some school items, and of course, quilting.  I’ve been working on donation quilts for the upcoming Community Service meeting for my quilt guild, and currently have a pile-up of tops to be quilted!

  • Go enter the giveaway for the precut bundle of charm packs and a jelly roll from The Precut Store over at episode 224 of The Stitch TV Show!
  • Check out my modern quilt (and pattern) in the latest issue of Modern Patchwork, “Islands in the Stream”. That song is probably the loudest (and only) singalong that Lynn and I had on the road to QuiltCon.

Today’s podcat was Jett! He is recovering from his dental surgery nicely.

The Stitch TV Show 223 Audio: FMQ and Precut Pricing

Join us for a detailed discussion of free motion quilting, and some of the perils to watch out for (including my gaffe 27 minutes in about platinum needles; that’s not a thing! I totally meant titanium!). I also geek out on some math when it comes to doing cost/benefit analysis of precut fabrics. Like reading The Martian, just let the math wash over you.

Don’t forget to visit the website for The Stitch TV Show to enter the giveaway for 3 charm packs and a jelly roll, courtesy of The Precut Store!
