Mel Giedroyc is Quilting

Mel Giedroyc is quilting. No really, she’s making a quilt. Each week on this brand new podcast follow along as Mel Giedroyc and her presenter pal Andy Bush add to their patchwork quilt with new squares of material donated by friends, famous types and most importantly the listeners! They’ll find out the stories behind the fabrics, develop their sewing skills and naturally, have a big old chat. And a cup of tea. And probably some biscuits. A Somethin' Else production.

Andy and Mel add more patches to their growing quilt, creating (with difficulty) a patch from Andy’s “leather” man bag, adding in some tear-jerking fabric from Mel’s Mum and probably hearing far too much about bodily waxing.

Andy and Mel make more patches for their growing quilt, with some brushed cotton left over from the quilt that listener Annette made for her first grandchild and a section of velvet from Mel’s greatest sporting achievement. We also find out Mel’s celebrity crush, what’s going to happen to Andy’s man bag and have a good old sing song.

Andy and Mel add more patches to their wonderful quilt, with some rich velvet from listener Jochen and a piece of a bitter sweet footballing memory for comedian Lee Mack. There’s also (quite disgusting) news about Mel’s dog, the tray game and a big question for you about Andy’s prized ‘man bag’.

Andy and Mel add more patches to their wonderful quilt, despite losing a needle and forgetting Mel’s glasses. We marvel over a section of Hugh Dennis’s shirt, get emotional stitching in a piece of Andy’s daughter’s first baby grow and Andy makes peace with a childhood memory of drummer from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club drummer Nick Jago.

Andy and Mel make a start on their quilting journey by prepping the first three patches. One is a test of Mel’s marriage, one is a test of Andy’s commitment to Everton, and one is a test of…the impression Mel made on David Hasselhoff in the 90’s.
