    As a new quilter, I ALWAYS wonder where the best online shops are. I have a great local quilt shop but she focuses on Civil War and reproduction prints which are not my thing. Also, she carries very few precuts. I know about Fabric.com, but finding the latest and greatest is not so easy on their site.

    I just want to add that you and April are the best podcast out there. And I used to listen to them all. You actually talk about fabric and quilting!! It’s awesome! Thank you for making my commute time such a pleasure and for encouraging me to be more creative.

    Hi Amy, I wanted to ask you about your seam ripper, is it sharp? I had a Fons and Porter one and it’s getting dull, and I just got another brand and it’s totally round at the tip and it’s really hard to remove stitches when I paper piece.
    Another question is, I went to April’s blog to see the pictures of her HST set-up, and the last blog post I can see is on Septemer 11. I know Quilt Market is coming up, was She too busy to post? Thanks!
