What a wonderful relationship your guests have! It is pretty neat how they can be business partners and be in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Isn't technology neat!


as a scrappy quilter i really enjoyed bonnie. as always i hang on your sites and now the new radio shows are so awesome. i tried to think of a different word but couldnt find one to describe it. I am so excited about posting pics as this will be my first time to venture out of the box and show my work but i have changed colors three times as i go through my strips and the yardage. I sure hope i settle soon lol.

Bonnie is the best for sharing her ideas and patterns, I love her website and have used heaps of her stuff. I needed her advice on clutter organisation and scrap usage

Aune Mattila

It was just fantastic fun: especially to hear your voices and became to know you better and mostly of the quilty things you were talking about. Aune from finland

This was a great show. Just discovered it today. One of my goals for 2010 is to reduce my current stash. I can't wait to try this. I joined the yahoo group as well, looking forward to talking with everyone.

I LOVED your talk radio today, what a great thing, and you dont have to pay an arm and a leg to listen. I as Bonnie also have a denim UFO lying around, waiting to one day be complete :) I thought you had G...REAT questions. I have tried to do scrappy quilts but i think i am to OCD to go scrappy, maybe there is still hope :) I also agree with both of you and ABSOLUTELY can NOT create in clutter. I am at total zen when my house is clean and can just sit with total relaxation and quilt. (because in the back of my mind i dont feel guilty while i sew with a dirty house) i ♥ to craft/sew/quilt and i craft/sew/quilt what i ♥ Thanx for the podcast i will now def. become a loyal listener :)


Really enjoyed the show! i believe life is a scrap quilt so you might as well make one too! Big fan of both of you and your ideas are always so easy yet striking! Keep up the great work!

I liked Bonnie's comments on using a stash -- going first to your precut scraps, then yardage... and THEN replenishing by buying new fabric. I feel free to use up what I have on hand! What am I saving it for? To "make a quilt?"
I *especially* like that you have started this podcast -- I love listening to it while I'm sewing. Thank you!

Wonderful show. I've been a fan of Bonnie for a long time. It was nice to hear her talk about her scrap system, which I've been using. I'll try to take her and your advice to keep my quilting space neater.

I really enjoyed your show and hearing Bonnie was inspiring cause I like reading her blog. I have just spent 4 days sorting my scraps and now have some great ideas on how to be more efficient in future. I've also made one of the blocks from Bonnie's free patterns tonight and can't wait to get stuck into my scrap bins and make a whole quilt.Thankyou.

Deb Fox

Great show Pat! I am a big scrap quilt lover. I love Bonnie web site and will be poring over it, and getting my scraps organized now! LOVE it, Love it,Love it!

Cindy Dailey

I have listened to both shows, and I am loving it. Keep up the great work!

Judy Knorr

Loved hearing Bonnie describe her scrap organization. Since discovering Quiltville I have been much better about organizing my scraps. Have my top finished from her Quiltmaker Mystery. It's ready to layer and quilt and I love it.

Kathleen B

Hi Pat, another great show! I agree with some of the other comments about really liking the part of the show about using scraps. Bonnie is a wonderful inspiration.


Enjoyed hearing Bonnie answer questions-especially about colors of thread to use for quilting.


Excellent show Pat, loved talk about cutting up scraps at end of project.


I was able to listen to the show tonight and really enjoyed hearing Bonnie in person. I liked the connection she made to quilters of the past. She is carrying on a great tradition, both in sharing her creative ideas and in sharing her charity quilts.

Linda Burton

Listened to your radio show today, and loved hearing Bonnie's ideas for stash busting. After hearing she had 30 free patterns on her webpage, I went there and have found several I will be using for charity quilts. Thanks, Pat for getting into this media.


Hi Pat ~ I was able to listen to the show tonight and enjoyed it. I liked all the scrap organization tips because I really need to get my scraps in order...just bought some bins today to help with this chore. I also appreciated being introduced to Bonnie -her blog and site were new to me! Now I have a lot to check out. Thank you!

May sound funny but the fun part of the interview was hearing Bonnie's and Pat's voices!

Vanya Worley

I discovered Bonnie's book Scraps and Shirttales right after Christmas at one of the local shops. Have it on my wish list. Told my quilt buddies about it and thinking about issuing a challenge to them to make one of the quilts using scraps, old clothes and thrift shop finds - no additional fabric can be purchased. What fun... Great radio show!

The radio show with Bonnie Hunter was fabulous! I have taken this year to be my year to "bust" my scrap & fabric stash and how she sorts her cut pieces in those plastic drawers... I have those!!! Amazing! I have gone through my scraps and folded them all...how silly! I should have chopped them down to the various sizes right off the bat! Well next sort I will. Thanks for such a great show and the ideas on how to bust my stash with "creativity".

Trish Bishop

I have loved listening to your two shows! Thank you for answering my email so quickly. I can hear the show now! I enjoyed hearing about how she purchased a used long arm machine and her choices with it. I would like to get one as well, and enjoy hearing other stories about them. And of course how she takes care of her scraps and then finds neat ways to use them!

call me crazy

How cool! Just listening to Bonnie has inspired me to make order from my chaos! I want to cut my scraps into pieces I will use too. :-)

Dani Marsh

I liked your talk about not just using what you have but spicing it up once in while. Trying to stashbust, yet every so often a fabric calls to me. It is nice to know that I'm not the only one that has add something special to the mix every so often. Have been to bonnie's website many times and have lots of quilts on my to do list.
