    • I ams orry, but we do not have a subscription to Quilty as of yet. We are only selling it on the newsstands. The second issue is due out the end of Oct. And yes we are considering the subscriptions after that, so be on the watch for it. You might call Fons and Porter to see if you subscribed to Love fo Quitling to verify your records. The number to reach them is 888-985-1020. Happy Quilting!

    So happy about the magazine!! Thanks for being a lovable nut and a wonderful teacher.
    Please don’t change.

  4. You could have straighter seams as well as put the blocks together for this quilt faster if you sewed the strips together in sets of threes then cut the rows.

    Your videos are great for a newbie. However, sometimes I get a bit motion queezy due to the continuous sudden movements in the videos. Is there Anyway to make them more fluid, or zoom out a little so they aren’t so pronounced?

  5. Why would you not do this as strip sets of three? Sewing single squares seems like a lot of extra work. BTW, I do love your show!

  6. Presumably she doesn’t do strip sets because she wants the quilt blocks to be completely random.
