  2. I just got the biggest giggle out of the two sisters. Please have them both together for more “lessons” on the show.
    And, guess what…I DID learn something!

  4. Hi, I just watched your most recent episode of Quilty with the quilt police. It was a great show. I loved the black, white and pink quilt used as the background. Can you give me any information about it? Thanks. Selene

  5. All the Quilty espisodes are great. Nice to see the next generation of Fons involved in quilting. Attack of the Quilt Police is real cute and funny. You go, girls! Keep up the good work! Love, Nancy Stone

  6. LOL! Good one. This is so true. I think some folks miss the point that quilt making is fun art, not just a mathematical process by which we attain a pretty “blanket”. And that’s another “quilt police” thing I’ve heard – quilters getting bent out of shape when someone called a quilt a “blanket”. :-)

  7. Wow! Sooo true. A film to see before guild meetings as a refresher to what we enjoy about playing with fabric.and enjoying what each one does with it.

  8. LOL.
    On a serious note the Quilt Police definitely do more harm than good. And watch that you don’t join the QP by giving unwanted “suggestions” or “rules”.

  9. Ooookay. Ran into the QP at a quilting class… I’ve been sewing for decades, but have been learning ‘appropriate’ quilting just recently. Well I got caught ironing instead of PRESSING……yes! I learned NEVER to do that again, but I’m 66 and thought I might have to go into time-out…..love your site…….

  10. I enjoyed this segment very much. I am guilty of judging people’s use of colors in their quilt, but I keep it to myself. I’m afraid that I’m the one who police’s myself. Keep the fun coming!!

  12. Very cute…it’s very important to support each other in our choices! Sometimes it’s fun to make a “no brainer” out of leftover fabric. Sometimes that actually takes more creativity. By the way…does anyone know the pattern for the background quilt? Would love to have it. Thanks

  13. Hey Mary!
    My daughter lives in Chicago like you. She also loves acting and modeling and writing and music…you two would probably get along well! She and I visited Quiltology last week! Really cute shop. I thought I might run into you getting ready to film or something!! Anyway, keep up the good work and I can’t wait to get the new issue of Quilty!

  16. Love the presentation & the message! So funny, had me “in stitches” and made me yell “cut” it out! Very cute, you two.

  17. This was very cute. I loved it. I have come across a few people like this but I try not to let it bother me. Keep up the great work!!!

  18. You two are a hoot! My comment: What goes on in the sewing room, stays in the sewing room! That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it.

  19. So true! I doubt if my grandmothers would have checked with the quilt police. They were too busy keeping loved ones warm and using whatever they had. Follow your own path!
