  5. I really enjoyed this last episode! I keep all my batting scraps, even the skinniest strips. I sometimes need them for bag straps. If my drawer gets full, I tear a bunch of the smallest ones and fill a new pillow for my cat (she has a favorite spot on the windowsill to stalk birds).

  11. Oh a segment on size, does size matter? (For quilts…..strictly quilts!)
    Particularly in relation to gifted quilts, and ones for babies etc

  14. I would like to see you guys talk about how you practiced sewing/piecing. As a newer sewist, I tend to want to try things, only to have them not turn out as well as they should, but because I’m not really sure what I’m doing yet, I’m trying a little bit of everything with little luck (which, I know, is my own fault, ha!). What were the sort of things you did to get better at getting accurate seams or blocks the same size, etc, and what you recommend for someone to do so – what sort of blocks to make or what kind of projects would be good practice.

  15. I think the baby quilt trend is changing due to the fact that babies are not to have any blankets or toys in their beds until they turn 1 year of age. This is recent national safety standard change within the last five years or so.

    My baby quilts are more of a toddler, youth or even a throw size quilt. This is also my way out of having to get the quilt done so quickly before or when the baby is born.

    Love the shows. (I say shows since I don’t get on to comment very often.)

  17. I love the baby quilt. I made a baby quilt recently that was around the theme of the nursery navy blue and gray with stars. I see also quilts that grow with the child.
