  1. Shari K. says:

    A lot! I need to finish my son’s HS graduation quilt (queen size) and I took 2 classes in May and I need to finish those quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  2. Vivian says:

    I’m planning to finish up the hand quilting on one quilt and get another pieced this summer. Thanks for asking!

  3. Karen says:

    I hope to get a lot of quilting done this summer as I have sooo many projects to complete . . . but with our gorgeous weather I also want to be outside hiking and exploring so we’ll see how much quilting I do. Thanks for the super giveaway!

  4. Janice says:

    I plan on squeezing in as much quilting time as possible. I always have projects ready to work on when on the go.

    Great fabric and I need the sharpener.

  5. Toni Leli says:

    This summer, I WILL finish incomplete! I have 4 quilts and a wall hanging that I MUST finish — my reputation is a stake!

  6. Janet Morton says:

    I plan on squeezing in at least one quilt and the start of another.
    The one I need to squeeze in is for my grandsons eighth birthday.
    I’m just in the proceeds of picking up fabric for it.
    And the one I want to have cut out and planned will be the one I start sewing in September when our handicraft starts up again.
    I like sewing in the evening on a summer night with the windows open and it’s still lite out til ten at nite. That’s when I do some table runners and maybe a scrappy quilt that’s easy to pick up and put down lol
    Thank you

  7. Jean Calhoun says:

    As much as I possibly can manage! I have Christmas quilts, donation quilts and just fun stuff all in the works. There are never enough quilting hours in the day!

  8. Ruth Bailey says:


  9. Shirley Whitcomb says:

    I plan to catch up on quilting all of my UFO quilt tops this summer with my new sewing cabinet that has a built in machine power lift that gives me a large enough level surface to free motion quilt more comfortably. No more struggling with heavy quilts tugging away from my feed dogs. Now I can put all those lessons on free motion quilting to the test. Happy sewing.

  10. Mary Jo says:

    Planning on doing a lot more sewing and quilting this summer!! I have my yard work done and vacation is coming up sooooooo, I am READY for this!!!!!! Other than work and some housework what could POSSIBLY get in my way!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Jofrid says:

    I hope to finish some UFOs, and I want to make a new tablerunner and practise my free motion quilting skill.

  12. Mrs. Plum says:

    I’ve been working on an appliqué quilt for 3+years, and I plan on major work on that this summer. Also, I have challenged piece to work on for one of my quilt groups. All in all, a LOT of quilting this summer! Thanks so much for the chance at the giveaway.

  13. Sherry Pryor says:

    I quilt most every day on a HQ sweet 16, but the best quilting days are the rainy ones, no competition with the garden!

  14. Connie Cain says:

    Summertime is so hard to squeeze in time for quilting. It looks like alot of late nights after the sun goes down. 🙂 On the Oregon coast you have to take advantage of the sun when you can get it. 🙂 Love the fabric and need the sharpener. Thanks for the chance.

  15. Jackie says:

    Alas, summer is my low point for sewing. my daughter and two granddaughters spend the entire summer with me, and with two little girls running around, its hard to fit any sewing in. With luck I’ll get to do a little in the evenings, if I’m not too tired!

  16. Lisa Jenni says:

    Ah time. . . besides a 5-week visit with my granddaughter Down Under, – a lot! It’s the deadlines coming up this fall I’ll have to meet, no matter what.
    Lets get the rotary cutter sharp, really sharp. . .

  17. marta says:

    I have some silks and plan to start on something modern and will be a wall hanging size,thank you…marta

  18. Jo Allbutt says:

    I am hoping to get 7 quilt tops quilted….of course that is in between sailing, gardening, yoga, and walking the dogs.

  19. alicia says:

    Since it is summer, I going to take it slow and easy. One UFO block at a time. The fabric and sharpener would help.

  20. Claudette says:

    A lot, not planning on going away anywhere this summer, so l lot of playtime!!!

  21. Love the fabric- great colors, could make my summer even brighter! Hope to longarm 7 quilt tops that are done, and make at least 4 more tops. Longarm is in the basement where it is cool!

  22. Kate says:

    Not sure how much quilting will get done as we have to move house, so everything needs packing and the garden needs to be dug up – my plants are coming with us. To keep me calm I’m hand piecing hexagons for a flower garden quilt made out of my grandmother’s bedding. Thanks for the chance to win.

  23. folksmith says:

    I plan to do something everyday as soon as i clean my room. have to drive a daughter to DC for her summer internship and then will get busy on quilt for her to remember her semester abroad in Spain. going to be a busy summer.

  24. Patricia Smith says:

    I try to get 5 hours per day, 4 days per week, so about 200 hours.

  25. karen bianchini says:

    I plan on finishing a sampler quilt that began in a local class. Then continue to work on queen quilt for my son and his partner. The center top is completed but sashing, back, binding and quilting all will take some months of sewing. Meanwhile storing up ideas for next few quilts, have a design in mind but not allowing myself to get too carried away until current two are done 🙂

  26. regina thomsen says:

    I hope to complete 3 quilt tops for our grandchildren this summer and begin hand quilting them to completion for Christmas!!!!!
    Thank you!

  27. Diane Johnson says:

    The question is “How much summer can I fit into my quilting!”
    With 2 weddings, one new great niece, and my usual 45 summer donation quilts for charities, I have the camper packed with my featherweight and my fishing pole. A small generator lets me quilt and catch trout at the same time in the mountain streams. Hubby heats up the skillet for fresh dinner so I don’t need to drop a stitch.

  28. Kae Eagling says:

    At least one class and 4 or more quilts.

  29. Peggy File says:

    I need to finish several wall hangings for our upcoming quilt show. Also have a stack of tops to be quilted. Full speed ahead. Great prizes. Thanks.

  30. Cheri Searles says:


  31. Ann says:

    I belong to a small group that quilts together once a week. We are making quilts for our counties’ foster kids. I usually buy small fabric pieces at our community thrift shop and have made quilts with bright colors, under the sea, and recently finishing a various flower quilt to be given away. I will be making another such quilt this summer as I am gathering some more brightly colored fabrics. I also find time to work on my art quilt which is a mermaid sitting on a rock with ocean background. Guess you say I will be busy.

  32. rhonda ludwico says:

    I plan to sew a little bit every day this summer. I have cleared my calendar! I’m working on modern quilts and art quilts.

  33. Donna DeShazo says:

    How much quilting do I hope to do this summer? A whole lot more than the tiny amount I was able to accomplish this winter!

  34. Wilma says:

    Thank you for introducing that new site and product. Very interesting. I will be doing a lot of quilting when not at my neice’s wedding in the Yukon this summer.

  35. Quilting Tangent says:

    Hopefully finish a queen size quilt.

  36. stanleybeagle says:

    I hope to finish 2 quilts this summer – one is basted and ready to go. The other is keeping my seam ripper busy!

  37. J. Reeves says:

    To get comfortable using a sewing machine.

  38. Cherie says:

    I’m planning on getting quite a bit of quilting done. I need to finish both of my kids’ quilts. Also, I have a new pattern for an applique quilt that I am super excited about making!
    Thank you!

  39. J. Reed says:

    Making a bed quilt and table runner.

  40. Patricia Espinosa says:

    Quilting is my life! I hope to always get to sew every day but with travels this year to visit my daughter I don’t always get in as much sewing as I wish. But I hope to sew at least enough to finish up 3-4 quilt tops before summers end! Fingers crossed.


  41. Karen A says:

    I’m hoping to get a lot of quilting done this summer. I’m working on a baby quilt right now and I have 2 other tops done that I want to quilt.

  42. Janet Wright says:

    Actually I am going to do lots of quilting–but hand quilting. I am camping in Wyoming and will have lots of time to hand quilt the quilt I made in Patricia’s Yukata class. Janet Wright

  43. Kim Sherrod says:

    It’s a busy Summer. I hope to finish 2-3 quilts this Summer.

  44. Jackie says:

    Currently have 8 or more projects in various stages. If I can get 4 or 5 of those completed before the end of the summer, I will consider it a successful season!

  45. LAurie says:

    I hope to finish three quilts in time for the fair in August!

  46. Carolyn says:

    Every rainy day! I’ll use the sunny ones to plan my winter endeavors.

  47. Terri R says:

    That’s a fun question! I’m attending 2 Quilting conferences this summer. And I have 3 quilt tops I’m itching to finish from a class with Melinda Bula.
    How much quilting do I hope to squeeze in this summer… As much as I possibly can!

  48. Sheila says:

    Tied up with more-intense-than-normal pastoral work and seminary classes till July 19…to be followed by ‘more-intense-than-normal’ creative PLAY with fabrics solo and with friends for the remainder of the summer….YAY!

    Thank you for the giveaway possibilities!

  49. Carole Anderson says:

    I would LOVE to have the roll of colored fabric and I NEED the blade sharpener. I keep getting nicks in my blades.

  50. Chris Jurd says:

    It’s winter here in Australia so there’s plenty of quilting time! Just need to give up real work n

  51. DENISE LENTINI says:

    If all goes well I should finish quilting the quilt a friend started 10 years ago.Then maybe on I started in 1999. Behind much?

  52. Valerie Gleeson says:

    As much as I can!

  53. Summer is a very busy time for us (46 acres to care for, lawns to mow, streams to keep cleared, a vacation guest house rental to clean, etc.) but I intend to finish a queen sized quilt, make one more and hope to start on an art quilt in a Japanese theme.

  54. Juanita Bean says:

    Plane on getting some UFO done. I have some baby quilt to get done. Thanks for having these Giveaways

  57. Rhoda says:

    I want to finish a mariners compass & piece two quilt tops for donation.
    I am well on the way! Thanks!

  58. Edna Warkentine says:

    I hope to get a lot of quilting done this summer because when it gets warm, I tend to stay inside in my air conditioned house. I plan to work on Christmas gifts.


  59. Lucy B. says:

    Lots while I’m home, but will be on the road for a month.

  60. Marijke says:

    A bit more than usual as a planned trip has been cancelled. I have quite a lot of projects lined up.

  61. sooz says:

    With the added bonus of more daylight, i plan to attack
    an UFO a month, also starting a new project every month.
    So, you see…it’s a pretty endless cycle for me. For sure
    I could use that rotary blade sharpener. THere is nothing
    that compares with the feel of the first cut with a sharp
    sharp sharp blade,,,,nothing!

  62. Chris says:

    I have my grandsons for 2 weeks and then eye surgery so I’m guessing not as much as I want but maybe I will get to finish one quilt.

  63. Sharon L. says:

    I am hoping to make one quilt and finish two others.

  64. Janet says:

    I’m going to try to squeeze in as much quilting as I can this summer in spite of the fact that I’m in the process of moving to a new house and selling my current one. My studio will probably be the last thing I pack.

  65. Bonnie Chalmers says:

    Would enjoy working with the color series, candy for quilters. The sharpener would be a bonus.

  66. Delaine says:

    That fabric is just beautiful! I plan to sew and quilt a little bit each day, a lot on some days. Thanks!

  67. lenore loftus says:

    quilting a couple of hours a day, I hope to finish five quilts this summer. I gave myself a deadline to finish up some UFOs this spring. and now I am ready to move on.
    Fabric looks fab and I could really use the sharpener!!!

  68. Patty H says:

    Hopefully, one jeans quilt and an embroidered quilt for Christmas.

  69. Quilty says:

    I would like to finish some projects, and machine quilt the one I’m working on!

  70. Brenda Wiseman says:

    Will quilt less than originally planned, as managed to break my right hand opening a window in mid-May. And need to take computer to shop as it won’t charge. Trouble doing much, but a win here would make me feel much better. 8*P

  71. Trudi Rammelkamp says:

    I hope to piece/quilt every day, there are many ufo’s taking up room in my sewing space and it will be wonderful to have them finished!

  72. Tesi Vaara says:

    Hopefully quite a bit. I need to finish quilting my latest tile quilt so that I can get it entered into a show! Hopefully it will be accepted. That would be awesome! Then on to my next project which will include dyeing fabrics and surface designs. Fun, fun, fun!

  73. Laura Marston says:

    As many hours in my newly organized studio as possible. I also make clothing and will be trying to do multiple, clothing items as well.

  74. Peg Swartzman says:

    Oh, Man!
    The weather is turning hot! I’m focusing on garments and dyeing or painting fabric…with sun as my fixative! Rainy days? Pull out the quilting projects. Just finished two bay quilts for June due dates. A third is on the design wall.

  75. Robin S says:

    I have 3 bigs projects and 2 smaller. Lofty goals for me but I will give it a shot.

  76. Debby says:

    I have three small children and too many part time jobs…. but none the less I hope to be creating as much quilty goodness and they all will let me!!!

  77. Janell Baker says:

    I average 2 quilts per month for charity and at least another quilt/ and or quilted project each month for gifts to friends or for my own personal use. I sew almost daily, with several projects lined up.

  78. April says:

    As much as possible!! Gotta clean the house and work, but quilting is the next priority.

  79. Diane Callahan says:

    I am planning on quilting a minimum of 5 hours/week. I’ll have to squeeze the time in between moving to a new home. Quilting will be my stress relief therapy.

  80. Rita Romeu says:

    I am hoping to get a lot of work done on the longarm. I have several (don’t even want to say how many) quilt tops ready for quilting. Anyone out there have any creative motifs you want to share? I always like seeing what others are doing.

  81. Barbara says:

    More! Hopefully several times a week

  82. D Masson says:

    I have several projects on the go and several planned for the next few months hopefully as summer really sets in here in the gorgeous northwest. As the heat turns up I get to head to my sewing room in the cool basement. I just love the shades in your Color Theory they would work so well in the quilt I am planning for my youngest grandson, thank you so much for the opportunity to win & use them.

  83. Kathryn Laposata says:

    I hope to get the binding on 6 quilts that were recently finished. Then I plan to sew some placemats for Meals on Wheels.

  84. Lydia says:

    I hope to finish several tops that just have a few borders to add on and prepare the backing so. I have traded work with my local long-arm quilter so I had better collect!

  85. Pam Cope says:

    As much as I can when I’m not out in the garden! I am getting some hand-quilting/ applique projects ready for road trips and time on the boat. Also a small piecling project all cut out to sew on the boat on my featherweight!

  86. Kristin Sykes-David says:

    Well, truth be told, I won’t get much quilting done! Between our large veggie garden and baby puppy due to arrive in early July, time spent in my studio will be small. I do have a baby quilt to finish by the shower in August however!

  87. Doina says:

    I hope to finish 3 baby quilt and 3 table runner. Thank you!

  88. ALISON Rice says:

    Lots. 2 for Vancouver Quilters’ Guild show Oct. 23-24. See VQG website.

  89. Colleen says:

    I’m hoping to complete 2 quilts and piece 3 more tops.

  90. Cathie says:

    Thanks for the chance.

  91. Barbaraben says:

    Since my sewing room is the coolest room in the house, I be in there a lot sewing away. I’ve found several new patterns that I want to try and there always seem to be a few quilts to finish.

  92. Kathleen McQuiggin says:

    I plan on quilting as much as I can this summer. I just got
    all the fabric cut yesterday for a prayer/healing quilt after learning my sister-in-law has cancer. There is a new baby girl coming to the family in Oct. and a little girl between 4 & 8 will be adopted this summer by my nephew and his wife.
    I also need to get back to my UFO’s! The rotary blade
    sharpener would get much use as I have a bad neck and shoulder and always use sharp blades only. Thank you for this giveaway opportunity

  93. Irene Harvalias says:

    A WHOOOOOOOLE lot! 🙂

  94. Meg Cupman says:

    My husband just had surgery, so I will be home quite a bit this Summer. I am learning English Paper Piecing, so I can grab a moment here and there and anywhere!

  95. So many quilts to make – so little time. I hope to spend an average of 60 minutes a day on quilting this summer. However, I seem to spend a lot of my time just looking at and touching all the beautiful fabrics in my collection. I do love Jason Yenter’s fabric designs – the colors and patterns speak to me.

  96. Looks like a great time and wonderful products.

  97. Fran says:

    I have three Hawaiian quilts in progress. One is small enough to finish this summer.

  98. Lydia R. says:

    step 1: to get my studio set up and organized so I can work, step 2: to finish a quilt promised to my daughter (which sadly is in my UFO pile). That would be about right, along with other planned sewing projects. Once I no longer work a FT job, I hope with the freedom to do so much much more.

  99. Wilma Scott says:

    Every single day!

  100. Lois Reimer says:

    This summer marks 2 years of retirement during which fabric buying continued, quilting did not. Energy was depleted due to a nightmare renovation that is still not finalized. I am determined to get at least 2 quilts done – my granddaughters rag quilt and another quilt based on a Japanese panel. I feel if I can just get these two launched I’ll be back on the road to quilting. Go Granny!

  101. Candace says:

    Planning and doing are not necessarily the same thing, but I do plan to spend at least 2 days a week sewing! When the days are to hot to ride my horse or I’m too tired then I’ll sew!

    P.S. I love the colors in the ‘Color Theory’ roll of fabrics. Almost to pretty to cut, almost. 🙂

  102. Doris McCarty says:

    I have some summer dresses to make. But everyday I will make some time to finish a hexie quilt I’m working on,and a paper pieced quilt that’s that’s well on its way to being a top. Yeah!

  103. Myra Ramos says:

    I hope to be quilting a lot this summer! I’m in the middle of making a reversible quilt for a friend, then will move on to making wall hangings with the beautiful Yukatas I bought while on retreat at Camp Houston.

    Bold colors are my favorites, and I would love to win those fabrics as well as the rotary blade sharpener to use on all the blades I’ve been saving!

  104. Quilting will be mostly hand projects since family and friends are visiting this summer. I may try to wrap up a few that need a border or one that I took apart to redo. I might quilt one or two on my longarm but that’s if I feel like it. All the summer here in Federal Way Washington is spent outside since the weather is warm and sunny.

  105. Jan Nuetzmann says:

    I hope to make several quilted project bags for friends this summer, using my stash of aboriginal prints from the quilt museum in La Connor.
    If time permits I hope to also make a long promised quilt for a now 18 month old grand niece.

  106. Nancy says:

    I am planning to complete 3 large quilts plus a baby quilt this summer, plus make pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase challenge! My quilt guild, San Francisco Quilt Guild, donates the pillowcases to the children’s ICU at San Francisco General Hospital. Each child gets to select a colorful pillowcase both to use in the ICU and to take home with them!

  107. Dianne R. Fitch says:

    I plan on finishing two or three art quilts and Finish two traditional quilts and make blocks for a BOM and a BOTW.

  108. Charlotte Key says:

    I love color theory and it would be great to try the blade cutter. Hope this is my lucky day.

    Thank you

  109. Trish vickery says:

    Hi Patricia – great giveaway! I am planning a large white/solids queen quilt ( for us ) at least 6 throw custion, a table runner in silks and a couple of baby quilts. A little over ambitious!

  110. Elaine says:

    Summertime and time to chip away at that stash of fabric. And with those warm-weather colours, birds singing and the fresh air through open windows, I am inspired.

  111. pat schafer says:

    I’m planning a summer packed with quilting, piecing, entering a contest, creating modern bom’s for a guild, planning a “How did she quilt that” focused quilt show with my mini group. We’ll take time out for lunch. I’m also going to get a jump on Fall and holiday gifts for a change. But first, I must get to finishing the quilt from a class I took this Spring. Before that I need to attach a binding on a quilt of a friend who’s just been diagnosed with cancer and just can’t look at finishing a family quilt right now.

  112. Pam S says:

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! I plan to squeeze in a lot of quilting this summer! It’s going to be my staycation. I have three birthdays and a couple baby showers that all require a quilt.

  113. Lenore Loftus says:

    Love to sharpen my blades cuz i am quiltin, piecing, designing every day.

  114. gemma says:

    I´ hope to finish the hand quilting for my daughter, and other for my niece……

  115. Nicole says:

    As much as possible! Difficult though with a very nearly 4 year old and an 8 year old. But I have arranged for them to be in a day camp in the same week. This will be the first time EVER that I’ve had a child-free day (more than one!) in eight years. So I have high hopes for that week.

  116. Jennifer says:

    I plan on squeezing in as much as the weather will allow. In the summer I get a head start in the morning so I can enjoy the sun later in the day. Thank goodness for living in the west coast. …one looks forward to a day of rain!!

  117. Linda Webster says:

    I’m planning to start some Christmas sewing in July. I want to fit in as much quilting as possible this summer.

  118. Ellen Hemmert says:

    I hope to squeeze in at lot of quilting including some classes at Sisters.

  119. Michelle D says:

    I’m just unpacking from a home renovation so whatever “quilt in progress ” I find first gets done!

  120. Allison CB says:

    So far this month I have finished two UFOs that had been languishing in my WIP closet for far too long!!! (one of them since before the last baby was born and he’s starting high school!!!). This summer I am working on getting as many older tops finished and gifted before September..probably about five of them!

  121. I plan to start and finish a quilt for my son heading to college in the fall, finish a quilt I am almost done piecing, and quilt a baby quilt that is ready for the sandwich stage!

  122. Amy L says:

    I hope to finish three tops into quilts this Summer, and complete a new quilt from start to finish for the adorable 5 year old next door. She asked – I must comply.

  123. Melisse Laing says:

    I’m working on some partly finished projects – aka UFOs – in the hopes that I can finish them into some wonderful – or maybe a charity quilt – or maybe throw them in a dye bath – or maybe trash them.

  124. Dwana Zahn says:

    My goal is at least 1/2 hour a day. Want to get gifts done for birthdays & Christmas so I’m not rushed!

  125. Laura says:

    I’ll be doing lots of quilting. My skin burns easily so I tend to go outside before 10 am and after dinner. Lots of time to sew during the day.

  126. Meriul E. says:

    There won’t be much quilting being done by me this summer, but there will be much family time! I am spending the summer with my daughter and my grandchildren!

  127. Betsy says:

    Right now working on a patchwork skirt for my 3 yo niece.
    I am then working on a community quilt project on 3 different quilts.
    I am happy to be working with others since I learn so much.
    I am always trying to balance work, garden and time for sewing!
    Thank you for some color inspiration!

  128. Jennifer says:

    I plan on squeezing in a LOT of quilting this summer! Wish me luck! I love piecing and quilting during the summers here on the east coast of Canada when the sunlight makes all your fabrics seem just that much nicer! I have a longarm and quilt every day whether for myself, others or helping complete comfort and charity quilts.

  129. I Hope to design and piece together quilt top this summer 🙂

  130. I am hoping to sew A LOT this summer! I haven’t planned exactly how much, but probably at least four quilts, maybe five, plus some embroidery.

  131. Judy Ward says:

    Every time I think I’m through with a top I get distracted by someone else’s quilt and their embellishments. Then back I go adding beads, embroidery, ribbon. I’m easily distracted and I don’t know when I’ll finish any of the 4 quilts I’m working on.

  132. Chelle says:

    I don’t quilt but my daughter wants to start!

  133. Abi says:

    I would like to start quilting this summer:)

  134. Kim Jones says:

    “Squeeze” is certainly the right word. But, the other night gardening was relegated to the back corner and quilting elbowed “her” way front and center. And, we agreed that there had been an estranged relationship ever since beautiful warm weather had arrived, so we came to an agreement; we will spend more time together….four nights a week….and the late summer evenings will be shared with beautiful fabrics and the satisfaction of creativity and accomplishment!

  135. Madeline Osborne says:

    I hope to squeeze in more quilting than I did over the winter, but no matter how much I do, it’s still never half as much time as I spend imagining all the projects i want to start (finishing is a whole ‘nother topic!).

  136. Simone V. says:

    As much as possible!!! Definitely have a couple clutches/pouches and a few baby blankets planned, but the more the better!

  137. audrey says:
