Small Town Quilt Show. . . In a Big Town Way


Top 5 things to remember to do before sending your quilt to a long-arm quilter

– Send your backing

– Include your information with the quilt

– 4″ larger batting and backing, than quilt top

– Mark top of quilt top/back if you would like it specifically done

– Press whichever way makes you happy


Watch your borders, so that they don’t wave at your quilter!

Do you think computerized quilting is cheating?

    I can not direct download using your new app / icon … I use to come here to download using your old icon but this one is different and does not seem to work for me.

    I will try i tunes but I prefer direct download cause then I also visit your blogs…

    FOUND the problems I subscribed to AMY’s Creative Side and this episode is under Quilt Cast so it came up in a new category. Some other listeners might have the same issue.

      Thank you, Nonnie. I found it under The Quiltcast rather than Amy’s Creative Side, too! :-)

        Ladies, back in November I had to move the feed, but I updated all the links in my posts, and mentioned it on the podcast. Sorry for the confusion!

    Can you discuss MAILING QUILT, QUILT TOPS in the mail.. how to pack them up, what works and what does not…never mailed a quilt but need to in the near future. Natalia can have input into this as she talked about getting quilt tops mailed to her.

    Looking forward to discussion about the scrap / stash quilts.

    Enjoying the conversational podcast! What brand and size longarm does Natalie have? Do either of you own a longarm? Same question to you.
