This week’s episode was the first of three this month, so we decided to change it up a bit and do something a little out of the ordinary. See what we talked about in the topics section below. And I hope you’ll enjoy listening or watching to the A Quilting Life Podcast Episode 13 Show Notes.

Love, love, love your podcast. I watch it and curl up and just enjoy.
I have been thinking about something Chelsi said she was doing, making a quilt for every bed for every season and I may tackle that. But I wonder what to do about my bed pillows when putting a quilt on a bed. Do you have a tutorial for pillow shams that would coordinate with the quilt? And in that same vein, why are so many patterns for square quilts? I fall in love with a quilt then realize it won’t fit my bed and I’m not experienced enough to know how to make it bigger to fit my bed. Thanks for making two Mondays a month something to look forward to!
Good point on the square size. I too am no experienced enough to retrofit.
Love your podcasts and really loved the tips you both gave.
What really struck me was the comment Sherri made about
To not worry if your quilting project is not perfect.
I don’t like posting my finished quilts because I’m afraid what others think. I consider myself a confident beginner.
I was working on a table runner and just felt defeated after quilting it because it looks distorted now, but will add the binding and will look upon it as my beginning of a
Great journey.to come. Thank you both for the inspiration!

I have been making your Block of the Month Quilt for 2020 with you each month. I cannot seem to find the Block of the Month for November anywhere. Can you help me. My time is so limited in November and December and I want to finish this quilt as a gift. Thanks
