  3. You can never have too many quilts. I have them everywhere in all sizes. Right now I'm making a series of seasonal quilts for our new ( to us) lake house. It is so much fun to see the different colors and patterns each season brings out. I like your bloomers quilt ,,,,looks like early summer to me. Thank you.

  8. It was through the positive influence of my friends that I started quilting when I retired. I didn't think I could sew good enough but they said I COULD! I've never looked back. I love to choose fabric, cut it and sew it into something beautiful!

  16. Quilting provides me with a wonderful way to be both creative and practical at the same time. What I make can be either useful or decorative while allowing me the freedom to make it any way I choose. My friends provide me both with encouragement and inspiration.

  19. I have followed your journey for quite some time (and have much fabric to show for it!). I look forward to watching you as you start this new endeavor. Your quilt is beautiful as always! I find my online (primarily instagram) community of quilting friends is very encouraging. I don't have many "real" friends that understand or appreciate quilting like I do. Thanks for the chance!

  20. I have been sewing since high school and quilting when my kids were little. My friends inspire me to try new techniques and we have the best time quilting together.

  21. For me quilting is a pleasure and passion! I especially enjoy making surprise quilted gifts to celebrate momentous occasions.

  22. I started quilting during college, which was a time in my life I really needed a hobby. It has been my creative outlet ever since, and has really increased lately. Quilting friends, both in person and online, make it so much more fun. I have 2 in real life friends who get together to craft once a month--or we did until 2 of us had babies!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had always wanted to learn to quilt and finally started about 4 years ago and I love it. I am now sharing it with my daughter and a mutual friend of ours. We are getting together one night each week to work on a project and they are both doing great working on a quilted pot holder. Our friend is probably going to be moving to another state but we have already decided we can use skype to quilt together.

  24. I love your quilt! I have been quilting for about 20 years. It is my way to be creative and unwind. I find I get grumpy if I haven't been in my sewing room for a few days! Many of my good friends are ones I have made because of quilting or through my quilt guild.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've been sewing since I was about 8-years-old but only quilting for about the last 10 years. My mother was not a quilter, but she was the biggest influence in all my sewing and needlework endeavors. I hope I'm doing her proud. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  26. I have enjoyed the process of quilting for many years. I have met many quilters from all over the world and enjoy the kinship that all quilters seem to have. If it weren't for quilting I would not have met my very special group of sewing friends. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've met so many wonderful friends through quilting. I was together with 2 of my friends today working on some Christmas ornaments. The 3 of us have been getting together once a week for almost 35 years.

  30. My mom taught me how to sew clothing when I was in grammar school, she wasn't a quilter. When I was in my 20's I decided to take a quilting class at a local college and the rest is history. I love quilting. My neighbor, not a quilter, went with me to a local quilt shop. While at the shop she asked me if I would teach her to quilt, so I guess I am a positive influence on her. She's doing great and starting to build a stash of her own now.

  31. I don't have sisters so I cannot do without my girlfriends. I just haven't found a girlfriend who likes quilting yet though.

  32. My dearest friends are ones that I met thanks to quilting. One introduced me to quilting and the fun and inspiration of joining a guild. The other showed up at a yard sale I was having after moving away from all of my quilting buddies and family (a gift from heaven - I so needed a friend), we have been fast friends since. Your quilt is darling.

  33. Quilting is such a pleasure. Everyone you meet is so nice. Quilters want to help each other and share their ideas and projects. Just think back to all the quilts that have been made over so many years and the stories they contain.

  34. I love quilting because of all the beautiful shapes. I am very fond of applique for this same reason. My friends are very supportive of my love of crafts.

  35. Quilting makes my heart smile. All of those lovely colors and textures. Also love the smiles on the faces of people who receive gifts. I am grateful to have friends that support me in many ways including in fueling my fabric fascination.

  36. I am very fortunate to have some wonderful quilting friends. We go on trips and retreats together. I love my quilting habit. Came into my life at just the right time. I really enjoy the whole process. Wonderful giveaway.

  38. I'm a fairly new quilter (about 4 months) and one of my friends started right along with me. We like to have quilting days on our shared days off. Quilting with friends is the best!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am an old quilter, really old. I look at it this way, it makes me happy twice, once when I make it and once when I give it away. I love seeing the smiles on people's faces when they receive their own quilt. Best therapy in the world. My quilting friends are my friends for life, through thick and thin, good and bad.

  40. I have been quilting for quite a while. The person who helped me the most to enjoy quilting and expand my skills is my mom! We had many great trips to the fabric store.

  41. I have just got into quilting this year and as such have done 5 now, well finishing my 5th quilt up this week! It has been such a blessing in all ways. It keeps me busy and concentrating and I make beautiful gifts for my loved ones! I wish I had of learnt this sooner!

  42. Quilting is my passion, and I don't know what I should have done without it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautiful quilt. So fun and fresh! I love quilting because it is somehow really calming me down. I enjoy the whole process of pattern searching , pulling from my stash, handsewing , stitching,...until the last stitch is done! And it is wonderful to be able to show some comfort to other people with gifting them a quilt. That is the thing which makes me really happy. It is a blessing to have good friends and it was a dear friend of mine who introduced me quilting more than 10 years ago.

  45. Quilting brings joy several times over -- joy to me in making things, joy to me and others in giving them as gifts, and joy in sharing what we're working on with my quilty friends.

  46. I am a new quilter and find that my family is really excited about my projects...its nice family time chatting about my work.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Making a quilt, is a gift from the heart and I love the joy it brings me and the receiver. I made a baby quilt for a friend 18 years ago and she told me her son took that quilt everywhere into his teens. The other joy is sharing how to quilt with my daughter and she is passing that gift to her daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love quilting for the beautiful fabrics and colours and the usefulness of the end result! I've been sewing most of my life but didn't discover quilting until I was in my fifties. Now it's my mission to convert my sister. I love the online community of quilters and all the sharing of ideas. Now one of my considerations for deciding where to move on retirement is whether there is a quilt shop and guild nearby.

  49. Time spent quilting with friends is better than vitamins. Love it! Need it!

  50. I started out making baby quilts for my nurse friends...then when I retired I planned on getting into quilting as a hobby. My husband developed cancer and the treatment kept us pretty much house bound to avoid him catching infections so I was online with swaps, quilt alongs and following bloggers while I learned more about quilting. I made so many new friends all over the world and it kept me sane while I was housebound. Now he is doing better and I am going on shop hops and quilting classes. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  51. I have been sewing every since I was big enough to reach the pedal of my mom's treadle machine. But I only started quilting about 25 years ago. I was sewing for a craft store at that time. My friend and manager of the store wanted me to sew for babies. I really loved that. It was no surprise to me when she wanted me to make baby quilts. With her encouragement, I did and now quilting has taken over my life. It is such a pleasure to cut up fabric and sew it back together to make something beautiful. My friend has passed away, but I think about her every time I make another quilt. Thank you for the giveaway.

  52. I'm a bit of an introvert but I like the fact that with quilting, I can spend a lot of time by myself to make a special gift for a special friend.

  54. My best friend (my sister), introduced me to quilting 5 years ago. I started with a crazy quilt...YES a CRAZY QUILT!!! What a daunting project that was! I never gave up and am still quilting. I love to make purses and bags too. Thanks for the chance to win. rosesabeyatyahoodotcom

  56. I have always loved to sew but these days I really LOVE quilting. I have 2 quilting buddies who live too far away to visit more than every 6 weeks or so, so we constantly text with photos about whatever we are working on. They spur me on when I get discouraged and are great with helping me find solutions for all those little bobbles that come up in a quilt project.

  57. Well, it's really an addiction isn't it when you wake up and think about quilting, and go to bed thinking about it...and it's wonderful to have friends that enable you as well, as my family doesn't really understand it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have only been quilting for 2 1/2 years. My youngest daughter bought me a simple singer for my birthday. "She said I needed a hobby", hahahaha little did she know what would happen. I work on a quilt everyday. My WIP is about 4 feet tall. I love it.

  59. Quilting is my zen and has been for a very long time. I think most quilters think alike and enjoy the same things, so when my friends and I go on a "quilt outing" it's usually to a quilt show, a quilt store, but especially to quilt retreats. Loads of fun!

  61. I had a neighbor that helped me get started when I was ten. The love of quilting has not left me for over 50 years. I give my quilts to my friends when they need the comfort. It has given for divorce, illness, and other losses. However new babies receive them too

  64. I am completely head over heels in love with quilting. I am the only one in my family who quilts and I only started a couple of years ago. I don't have any quilt friends to meet with and quilt (I wish I did!) but that's okay, I quilt alone and connect with people online!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I began sewing with my Mom at an early age and she started me with the quilting bug. We actually took a sheet, ironed on some embroidery state flowers and sat down at a quilting rack my dad made. It took awhile, but we embroidered that quilt top. I have since found wonderful quilting friends at my local quilt shop. The owner is awesome and I am so blessed to be around them.

    ReplyDelete
  66. My love of quilting is more like an addiction! I go to classes, retreats, and a monthly sewing group where like-minded quilt addicts meet, sew & chat about our projects and adventures. There are some who've been quilting a long time, and others who just started but we all share the same love of fabric. My husband even plans our vacation around quilt shops in the area! This is my first time visiting your blog, enjoyed looking around!

  68. Hi! I've only been quilting for about 6 years and I do love it, but I don't have near enough time to do 1/3 of everything I want to do - darned full time job is always getting in the way!!!
    My dear friend has quilted forever and was always trying to get me involved but it always looked so tedious. One year, unknown to my friend, I took a quilting class at a local library - I was hooked! My friend got me to join her guild. I look at her work and am so inspired - maybe in a hundred years I'll be able to catch up to her!! Thanks so much for the chance to win. I love your Girly Girl fabric :)

  71. I don't belong to a guild (I live too far away from any groups) but I do a lot of charity quilting with the women at my church. I love getting together with them as everyone sews and shares what is going on in their lives. These women feel like my family!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Although I don't belong to a formal group I love to sew with friends!

  73. I don't know any quilters in my area to sew with, but I do attend a once a week sew day at a small quilt shop about 30 minutes from my home. I love the support of the women in the group and the friendships that have developed.

    ReplyDelete
  74. The encouragement is priceless. Today we had a small group stay after the meeting to make pillowcases for the children's hospitals in Memphis and Johnson City, TN. Such a warm loving feeling enveloped the room, it was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love to quilt. And, I love sharing the information I've gained with others. As to its positive influence: Quilting has taught me that I CAN be an encouragement to those less fortunate than me by wrapping them in a gifted quilty hug. Charity quilts -- they really give a lift!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I started quilting many years ago with my mother and aunt. Though I didn't accomplish a lot over the next couple of decades, I kept learning and loving quilting. After my boys were grown and I stopped working, I had time to return to an activity I loved. Now I make quilts not only for my family, but for a quilt ministry and another group that responds to those in need or are going through a difficult time.

    ReplyDelete
  77. My friends are very special people in my life. I have a small circle of close ones that I could share anything with. Sadly, none of them sew! But, I have made sewing and quilting friends through blogging and they are so special too with always encouraging me to keep trying new techniques and to keep posting!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love quilting and my friends! I'm so happy that they mingle together! I know I can depend on my quilting friends to draw me back in to things when I'm down. Quilting is the best medicine!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm almost house-bound and don't get many visitors, but one friend comes every week and loves seeing what I've been sewing. She is very supportive and understands how much work gets put into each project. I made her a quilt for her birthday last year and had trouble keeping her from seeing it before it was finished.

  81. I used to make custom hats. I loved doing them but always was stressed if my work was good enough for the customer. Then I discovered piecing and machine quilting and I felt free. I love quilting, I love being with quilters and talking the same language, sharing techniques and stories and being free to create anyway I want to. Love it. Thanks.

  82. Quilter's are the nicest people. In this world of insults, I can walk into a quilt shop and know I will be given a fresh of fresh air. My friends and I have such fun together. I have gained new friends in two states.

  83. Oh you are trying to spoil us with a fabric AND a cookbook!! I have only one local friend who dabbles in sewing but all my friends know that this is a huge passion of mine. I have made many friends on FB who are quilters and it is so nice to share encouragement and techniques with them. The internet has opened up lots of quilting ideas and artists, like yourself, to me since there are no quilt shops near me.

  87. I am new to quilting and don't actually have any friends that quilt or sew. However my mother has sewn most of her life, and since my interest in sewing we have bonded even more. We had a great relationship anyhow, but we find ourselves bouncing ideas off each other all the time. Have a great day. dawnm1993(at)gmail(dot)com

  103. I'd have to write an essay to say how much my quilting friends have influenced my life. I have learned many skills and techniques from some very talented ladies. I have made friendships that will be lifelong. I've enjoyed the company and humour of my quilting friends at regular "stitch and *itch' get togethers.
    I value the friendships I have, and don't take for granted the gift my friends are in my life.

  107. I love quilts! It's a hug you can wrap around yourself anytime. For my 30th birthday I asked my close friends and family to give me a fat quarter that I turned into a quilt that reminds me of all the wonderful people I have in my life and how blessed I am :)

  108. I made my first quilt at the age of 16 and have taught my daughter to quilt. I think she's made more quilts than me already and she is 25. My husband accompanied me this year on a 4343 mile trip around Minnesota on their annual quilt shop hop and I saw lots of great country and met some really great shop owners and shoppers. I got lots of new ideas and a few patterns that would work with that bundle you are giving away. Karen kthurn(at)bektel(dot)com

  110. I'm coming back to quilts after many years. I've missed it. I haven't missed the country calico, but I have missed the colors, relaxation of sewing, and the communitee feel. I have ventured into modern quilting, learning free motion quilting and more about appliqué. I'm really loving it.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I love creating things from such raw materials as bits of fabric and thread. I still have lap quilts I made 25+ years ago. I am so enjoying this "new" expensive hobby of mine. One of my clothing designer friends from many years ago inspires me a great deal. She is so creative in the clothing she designs. I am currently working on her one of a kind quilt.

  113. What a pretty, feminine quilt! One of the things I love the most since starting to quilt is seeing and participating in the generousity and kindness of the quilting and crafting community. Whether it's sewing blocks and sending them off to be included in a quilt of love and comfortable or sewing the complete quilt to donate to a worth cause... it's wonderful to feel a part of making a difference.
