Hi, I’m Kelley and I’m your hostess here at the Pioneer Quilter.  I am a wife, mother of two, a full-time programmer and a passionate quilter.  I started this podcast so that I could spend some time learning more about the craft I love…and of course, talk about it!  I primarily enjoy hand quilting and piecing but also current quilting trends, techniques, books, gadgets, and, well…everything quilty!  I have also posted some free patterns and tutorials, and you can check my usage policy here.

If you have ideas for a future podcast, I’d love to hear them.  I’d also love to hear your feedback.  Feel free to drop me a line.  Thanks for visiting.  I hope you come back again soon!

    Hey Kelley!

    I just have to tell you how much I am enjoying your podcast. I have listened to each of them at least twice, and love the one with your husband and how he asks if he can talk about LOST and Star Trek. WebGuy and I had a good laugh over that — because that’s what he’d rather talk about too.
    I also loved the message from your husband — very touching. Not many husbands get involved with their wives’ interests and I know several quilters whose husbands don’t even ever want to see their wives’ quilts! We’re the lucky ones. ; )

    Keep it up, podcasting friend! Sending many good wishes your way!


    p.s. I hope you’re still listening! ; )

    I just wanted to let you know I enjoy your podcast about hand work, piecing and quilting. I can not do it much any more as I have a dominate hand nerve deficit that causes spasms and fatigue in my fingers. I was hand piecing a Dear Jane but have not been able to work on it. I plan to assemble what I have in a baby quilt but I am going to finish it by machine, I think.

    I like that you show the back of your work / blocks with the free floating seam allowance. That is so helpful to people who are trying to learn this old skill. I know I did not know how to do it when I started until I read Jinny Beyers book and watched her cD. I learned a lot from that. I wish she would release a new DVD with her techniques as I think the basics are great and need to be taught.

    Happy Quilting,
