  1. Patricia Contraveos says:

    I’m watching episode 3405 and wondering if you could tell me where to find the pattern for the bottom quilt on the white ladder behind Sara and Angela? Maybe they’d like to do a show on it??? It looks very pretty and something I’d like to make. Thanks!

  2. Larisa Slezak says:

    Do you have a monthly subscription where I can view all the past episodes on demand of Fons & Porter? And others like Quilting Arts?

  3. Janis Doyle says:

    I really love this show and have been watching it for years. I am very upset that my local channel no longer has it on their lineup. Is there any way to watch it other than DVD player I don’t have one ei either

  4. Mary Sauceda says:

    Hi there! On the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting show, S35, Episode 5, Snowy Spring, you talk about using the v-block tool. Can you please tell me where to buy this tool? I can’t find it anywhere. Thanks so much!

    • Tiffany Warble says:

      Hello!
      I checked with our team and here’s what they said:
      “All tools used on the series will be listed in our supplies lists (here’s 3505). In this episode, instead of the V-block tool from Studio 180 (her usual go-to for V-blocks), Angela actually used the 6″ Triangle in a Square from Bloc Loc. You can purchase that tool directly from Bloc-Loc, or you can check with your favorite quilt retailers. (If you’re making this quilt, I strongly encourage you to read our blog about the border—it’s not for the faint of heart!)”

      We hope that helps!

  5. Becky Garrett says:

    I really wish you would go to episodes with a guest besides Angela every week. The same 2 every week gets boring

  6. Karen Watson says:

    I just watched Season 35 episode 10. There was a technique for grid quilting that i am interested i. Doing. Where can I find more information regarding this technique? I googled it with now results. Thanks for your your help.

    i would love to get the pattern LOQTV Episode 3307 star spangle banner . if you could let me where I could purchase this pattern.

  8. Vicky McCreery says:

    With everyone wanting to help stop covid-19/ corona virus pandemic, I was wondering if those of us with fabric stashed could make autoclavable masks to help of medical workers?

  9. Cheryl Young says:

    I love these shows. Iwatch them every week they are on my pbs station. I make sure I get up early every Saturday to watch it.
    Thank you so much for them. So much knowledge for this self taught quilter!!

  10. Darlene Erickson says:

    Where can I find the brush that has water and starch in a tube that Sarah uses when she finishes a seam?

  11. Carol T says:

    I am so disappointed with the “new” Love of Quilting series 3400 with Sarah Gallegos and Angela Huffman. There is no instructional aspect to the show any more. Marianne and Liz used to discuss how to cut properly and give much info about how to quilt. Even the intro said “you will learn…” I learned to quilt totally from watching them and other quilting shows, and theirs was one of the best. Now, the quilts Sarah and Angela show are mostly not of interest to me and they are all pre-cut, and then we watch Angela sew. Whoopee! The blocks all seem to have many many tiny pieces and frankly many of them aren’t attractive, in my opinion. Please bring back more instruction and a wider variety of style of quilts!!

  12. DeAnna Dodson says:

    Hi! I’ve seen every episode of this except for Series 100 and 200. I know they’re old, but I’d love to watch from the very start. Any chance we might get to see those, too? Thanks!

  13. Kathy says:

    Where do I find the pen that you use on stitched lines before pressing your quilt piece? What is in the pen? Water? Starch?

  14. Gina Lagaly says:

    3500 Series Episode 1 – Angela showed a nifty expanding buttonhole gadget that would assist in longarm quilt design….and I think so much more. I have searched under every name/word combination to no avail. I would love to have a maker/brand or anything that would help me find this gadget. Many many thanks

  15. Susan Greenberg says:

    I discovered the Love of Quilting television series not long after I took up quilting 18 months ago, and quickly became a fan. I set my DVR to record any and all shows that are run, and have learned so much! Sara and Angela are delightful hosts, but also excellent instructors. I feel like I am a student in a private class, and that I am learning from friends. the occasional guest hosts are great too. While I have seen many of the shows twice, I find that as I become more experienced I gain new understanding with repeated viewings. Even if i don’t care for featured the quilt, the instruction in technique is still very valuable and applicable to any project. Thank you for producing such a quality show, and I look forward to new seasons.

  17. Sandy says:

    Love watching your shows. What is the brand and model of the iron used. It looks light weight and good for quilting.

  18. Sandra Faust says:

    I do not understand the letter instructions on the BOM Dragonfly Dreams. What do the letters refer to; the fabric, the shape or???. I don’t know which fabrics to use for the pieces of the blocks unless the letter indicates the fabric.

  19. logene M says:

    I have the dvd of the 1500 series of shows. and i want to get the instructions for some of the quilts made on it. How can i do that. When watching the dvd it says to log into their site and i can get them. I have tried to open the 1500 series and I can’t get into it. can you please help me. I know it is an old series as I have had the dvd for a long time.

    • Deb Murphy says:

      I love watching your show. In the 3400 series the ladies have been using a tool to wet seams before pressing. What is this tool called? I would love to find one. Thank you!

    • Jennifer Bridgewater says:

      There was a tip from a viewer in March or April on our local PBS station that was a binding roll/dispenser to keep our bindings straight while we were sewing it onto our top. Can you send me a note as to which episode it was in?

  20. Lori N says:

    I am looking for the magazine month that goes with each tv episode on the 3100 series. Where would I find that?
