  1. I have my series recordings set for “Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting”, I am thrilled to see when one has auto recorded for me. My favorites are when you and your mom are together. It is so relaxing watching you two .
    Your mom looks so much like my Aunt who was a master seamstress.
    I sew but have only recently made one baby quilt and it came out O.K.

  2. Hi Mary
    Love the new quilty magazine!!!
    I was immediacy inspired by the quilt on the cover I think the idea of light, sashing,it made the quilt come alive. It did not take me long before I had one under construction.
    I found the rest of the magazine inspirational and informative can’t wait for the next issue.
    Contests on a job well done!

  3. I watch every program, I save the ones (DVR) that I want to refer back to in the future.
    Will your program return in the fall?
    Thank you for all of your help
