    I plan on making a Swoon quilt, in blues & greys – it will be my second Swoon & very similar to the first that I made. I really loved that quilt but gave it to a family member for a significant birthday so I want to make another just like it & to keep this one for me. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    A Dogwood flower quilt. My own take on a Grandma’s flower garden. The colors will be the colors of the tree. It is inspired by Our beautiful Pink flowering Dogwood in our back yard and my growing spring fever.

    After completing a morse code quilt in batiks, I am making an arts and crafts strip hexagon quilt in moda solids. I will quilt it with my acufil as I did the morse code quilt in variagated threads. I love this magazine, would love to have a subscription.

  4. Ronda says

    I am planning to make a quilt for my aunt, not sure what pattern yet, with a bunch of turquoise fabric, for her birthday or maybe Christmas if I don’t get it done by her birthday. Thanks for the chance at this giveaway!

  5. Melissa Thomas says

    I would like to begin a quilt for my daughter. I was given a quilt when I was 15 and I still have it. I want to keep this tradition alive. The color scheme will be black, white, teal and pink.

    I am a new quilter. My next project will be making a 16×14 inch tote bag. I need a tote bag exclusively for my daughter’s asthma medication to go back and forth to day care. I wanted a bag with some padding to provide some protection to the special inhaler she needs. my design is to make one quilt square–my first–with triangles and squares. I have chosen 4 fabrics–a bright greenish-yellow, a teal, and a cream. I swear they look great together. I wanted something bright that would stick out from the other baby stuff in the daycare (se we don’t loose her meds!) thanks!

  7. Elaine Rodman says

    Taking classes to learn a new passion. My children are in late teens early twenties and want to start on a wedding quilt for them this year……….(even though there are no plans as of yet for any celebrating) just want to have this for when that day comes around!
    thank you.

    I am planning a modern baby quilt for my brand new (and first) granddaughter. I did a fabric banner and a log cabin quilt in navy and coral, the colors in her room. My daughter added some gold/modern accents to the baby’s room, so I would like her next quilt to have the navy and coral and add some shiny gold fabric for accents. Lots of sewing to do for girl stuff!

  9. Raela Stander says

    I found a vintage book called 500 Full-Size Patchwork Patterns and I want to start using up my scrap bin of yarn. The colors will be.. all of them!

  10. Dana says

    I have an assortment of dotted fabrics my sister has been collecting. She is searching for the pattern she wants me to make for her.

  11. Sarra says

    I would love to make a celtic-style quilt this year. Maybe in some lovely batiks for a stained glass effect.

  12. Pam S says

    I’m planning some quilted pillows with scrappy starbursts and texty prints in the background. Thanks to for the chance to win a subscription!

  13. Emily C says

    I am planning a baby blanket for a relative. We don’t know what it is, so I will use a rainbow color palette and simple stars. They are an easy, quick finish.

  14. nancy d says

    Right now I am working hard on a quilt for my grand daughter. It is a reproduction of a quilt from the 30’s of blocks of kittens with embroidered details. I’m using 1930’s reproduction fabrics. Its become more time consuming then I thought it would be. Once I finish the embroidery it should move faster. I’m also participating in a BOM. My first and lots of fun! I hope to make several quilts that I have had on my to do list this year. Would love to win a subscription to this magazine for some fun motivation!

  15. Sara says

    I am making a queen sized fence rail quilt using jelly rolls for myself. I have made a jelly roll race quilt for my daughter so now it’s time to make something for me!

  16. Renee Tellen says

    Have been collecting (and continue to) men’s old cotton/twill dress shirts to cut up and make into a 9-patch, I think. And I would love to win the magazine giveaway, but who wouldn’t??? Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest.

  17. Mimi says

    I have started a mostly applique quilt for a best friend. Each block will represent something of importance to her.( ex. cowgirl boots, cabin in the woods). Now that I am retired I finally have time to quilt!

  18. Karrie Smith says

    I have a bundle of Nordika that I want to make a quilt out of this year…I have yet to find the perfect project :/ Thanks for the chance to win! This magazine would be great for inspiration!

  19. Karen Drake says

    I plan to make a denim quilt this year in a log cabin pattern, it will be a variance of denim colors.

  20. DeeAnn S says

    My plan is to make a quilt for myself! I want to use a turquoise, coral, and beige color scheme but am not sure of the pattern yet. Thanks.

  21. Heather B says

  22. Michelle L. says

    I am thinking about making a quilt for the reading nook in our dining room, using a palette of reds, blues, greens. I want to cozy-up the corner for my kids during our homeschooling day.
