HtbaS - Episode 263

It’s the no backsies podcast! Context provided within the podcast.  This week I talk about 10 minutes up front on Cat Chat (Nina had surgery on Wednesday, but she’s fine), then some guild show and raffle quilt talk, and then finally the dirt on what I got at the Super Bolt sale last weekend.

Books reviewed in order of preference this week:

  1. Hello Pam! Thanks again for a great podcast, I have been listening for a few months now, you are so funny! In a really good way,you always make me laugh, it brightens up a dark grey morning here in the UK, and I am enjoying the stitch show too, been spreading the word over here to my fellow stitchers. Glad Nina is on the mend, it is a worry when our fur babies are poorly! Thanks again, Emma x

  2. Thanks for another great episode! As a cat owner, I was totally unaware of some of the medical issues you discussed and I was happy to learn it! I love that about podcasts, you just never know what you are going to learn. I hadn’t thought about the quilt raffle issue and making more money at non-quilt venues. It does make a lot of sense, though. Have a good week!

  3. I feel your pain with Machingers. I have tried every sort of quilting device known to quilterkind. I know people don’t think of me as actually quilting quilts, but I do occasionally. That is when quilting gloves make me crazy. The best thing I have found so far is called Steady Betty Bands. ( They are bands that go around your hands. They grip really well. I can tie off most ends without taking them off and they are comfortable.

    As far as I know all Tuffet making is foundation pieced. Don’t use paper! Use thin muslin or solid, because you keep the foundation fabric inside. Or ugly light fabric you don’t want anymore.

    I also have long strips of batting from trimming quilts. these bits work very well for donation quilts. I have been using the batting tape to put them together, which I try to get on sale, because I was losing patience for sewing them together. Yes, it is an added expense, but helps my stress level immensely and gets that batting used. One fewer awful quiltmaking task.
