Learn more about Amy and April as we share more of our own stories, when and how we started quilting, and eventually blogging. When designing quilts became a part of our daily lives, and some of the notions that have been in our toolbox since the beginning.

We mentioned a number of great notions and tools – are any of these your tried and true notions?

    I enjoyed hearing you both on the podcast (Amy and April). It reminded me of when I used to talk ‘quilty’ with my friend Sally. My favorite tool is my rotary cutter. I have gone through many, but I use the original one and just keep changing the blades. Keep up the good work. Thanks

    I really enjoyed listening to this, but have to point out that the volume was *really* low, even when I had it turned to max on my iphone.
