    I plant to tackle my midnight at the oasis quilt. Thank you for the chance. I have never seen this magazine

  2. jonquil on January 25, 2014 1:30 pm

    I will be doing my first quilting project of a 9 patch variant for a lap sized quilt for grandchild #1. The color scheme is ‘what she likes’: rainboots, rainbows, & animals.

  3. Marcy on January 25, 2014 3:21 pm

    My fave magazine. Would love a subscription.
    My project this year would be a Sam Hunter quilt pattern in shades of grey,
    Orange, and white. Can’t wait to start ( after I make a dent in my UFO’s)

  4. Deb G. on January 25, 2014 3:28 pm

    I would like to make a rag flannel quilt for a baby. I chose pinks and purples that would be perfect for a little girl.

  5. marlene on January 25, 2014 3:49 pm

    I have a collection of favorite shirts, PJ’s, skits and shorts that my 8 yr old has not wanted to part with. I am going to turn them into a quilt for her. Will be starting this project in the next couple of weeks.

  6. susan collet on January 25, 2014 4:52 pm

    I know the basics of quilting but that’s it. I want to make my son a blanket for Christmas. I crochet a blanket last year for my oldest but I want my this sons blanket to be different. I like reading a magazine in my hands, not the internet! I seem to learn better. His colors are neon green and dark blue. He said i could pick 1 more color to go with them. oh i really would like to win your magazine! I’m a disabled 54yr old and know I have to get this made this yr due to health problems.

  7. Debra Kay Neiman on January 25, 2014 5:16 pm

    I am making a modern quilt for a wedding quilt for my son…red – white and black with small amount of applique. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  8. Laura _in_TX on January 25, 2014 5:17 pm

    I plan to make a Man’s Boxer Short color themed quilt this year. My group of quilters has a tendency to lean toward quilts better suited toward woman. With this color scheme, it’ll be MANLY for sure. I plan to use striped oxford cloth for the backing. Can’t wait.

  9. Nancy Roraback on January 25, 2014 5:42 pm

    I am working on a rag quilt for my sister. I have started gathering materials using the turquoise, green, and gray so far!

  10. Kim Reid on January 25, 2014 5:53 pm

    I want to make a scrap quilt from denim fabrics, thanks for the chance!

  11. OHSue on January 25, 2014 6:03 pm

    I have all the fabric for a Labrynth Quilt that I hope to be sleeping under before the year is over.

  12. Michelle on January 25, 2014 7:12 pm

    I plan on making a quilt for our travel trailer this year. It will have an outdoorsy theme and incorporate some of my husbands favorite old tshirts.

  13. Sheri on January 25, 2014 7:13 pm

    I have a Broken Star kit from QuiltSmart that I want to make for my husband. In greens and blues!

  14. Anne Crosby-Haag on January 25, 2014 7:16 pm

    I want to sew for the very first time using the old forties material to make a lap quilt for her. She one year made quilts for all the grand kids. I would like the opportunity to give one back, while learning to quilt.

    Thank you for a chance to win such a wonderful gift!

  15. Stephanie O (The Simplified Home) on January 25, 2014 7:35 pm

Binding is a red stripe fabric and backing is navy blue and white large scale chevron. Hoping to blog it soon. Pregnant and due on Feb 3.

  16. Mary Odom on January 26, 2014 12:34 am

    I am working on a quilt made from fabric sample books. It is mostly earth tones. A young woman I met in my dr. office asked if I would make it after seeing a quilt I made for my daughter ( Day of the Dead)

  17. Kymber on January 26, 2014 2:08 am

    I love to see all the old world crafts coming into a new era with a fun new edge!!!!

  18. knittingdancer on January 26, 2014 7:36 am

    I would love to have a lap quilt in the Texas LoneStar pattern in blues and purples.

  19. Mama Terri on January 26, 2014 8:01 am

    I plan to make a 10 minute block sampler quilt this year for my granddaughter, who is the sunshine in my life! I chose to make the quilt using greens and pinks- the green for growth, as she is growing up so fast! and the pink because she was my first granddaughter. I chose this pattern because it looks simple enough for me to do. I decided 2 weeks ago to make quilting my hobby and already I am in love! I am so excited learning new things and knowing that I will continue to have new things to learn for years to come!

  20. Victoria on January 26, 2014 9:08 am

    This year I plan to work on memory quilts for friends who have lost someone. The current one is made of mens work shirts so blues, grays, greens and a few burgundy stripes in the mix. Also pockets and photo transfer. This one is for a fried who lost her dad. I have 4 that have been offered and the person is just not yet ready to part with the clothing yet….so those are coming. Also to complete the quilting on tops that are ready for my children to have bedsized quilts instead of lap sized from their birth (kiddos aren’t that old…oldests are 10 tomorrow) Would love to get this magazine.

  21. Kathleen Davis on January 26, 2014 9:22 am

    I plan to make a peacock quilt using different blocks since our Christmas theme for 2014 is peacocks. For my daughter’s wedding this past October we used peacock colors and it was beautiful, so I want to use some of my creations from the wedding to decorate this Christmas and I need to add to that a quilt and a Christmas tree skirt in teals, purples, and greens. I can’t wait to see it all come together. We change our Christmas colors every year, and it is always exciting to see everything decorated. I think I will enjoy the peacock quilt all year since I love those colors.

  22. ga447 on January 26, 2014 9:33 am

    I have this wonderful organic fabric with animals/plants from the woods. I plan to make a quilt with a design similar to a cathedral pattern.

  23. Cathy H on January 26, 2014 9:39 am

    I have a Bali Pops jelly roll to make in to table toppers and chair headrest covers.

  24. superstitches on January 26, 2014 9:50 am

    I’m picking fabric for a quilt called “off the rails”. I’m considering rainbow with black and white accents. This magazine looks very interesting. I’ve never seen it before.

  25. Judy Tatom on January 26, 2014 10:08 am

    My big project of the year is a McKenna Ryan wall hanging for the nurse at the school I work at. It’s an underwater scene of freshwater fish that will hang in her and her husband’s houseboat. I will be using various vibrant batiks fabrics. Thank you for the opportunity!

  26. Jane Thomas on January 26, 2014 10:16 am

    One of two quilting projects I am working on this year is a cathedral window made with various scraps and a quilt with hexies. The colors are lime, yellow, turquoise, and orange and on muslin I am embroidering figures I purchased online. I chose the cathedral window because a lady showed me how easy it was although it looks difficult and I have never done hexies so I chose that because I would be learning something new.

  27. Jenna Osborne on January 26, 2014 10:30 am

    I plan to make a quilt for my nephew in rainbow colors to match his bedroom!

  28. Christine on January 26, 2014 10:48 am

    I plan to make a Dr. Who quilt I’ve seen on Pinterest. The colors in the pattern aren’t very bright, but I’m going to go as bright as I can. I’m making this quilt because I have loved Dr. Who for many,many years.

  29. Irene Antonaccio on January 26, 2014 10:58 am

    I took some quilting classes in my twenties. Now that I am 50 and have more time I want to make a quilt for my daughters bed out of some of her old clothes that no longer fit. It is a great way to recycle material. This magazine looks awesome and interesting. Thanks for having the contest.

  30. joan in nebraska on January 26, 2014 11:11 am

    I am making 2014 the year of the t shirt quilts…my family has saved old t shirts forever and all are awaiting fantastic quilts…I want to try several ways to prepare the t shirts and several different lay outs. Gotta get busy!!

  31. Dorothea Evans on January 26, 2014 11:20 am

    I have made 2 Latte quilts and gave them to my kids as wedding gifts. I started a third for me. It is about 1/2 one. I have done all the embroidery. It is colors of coffee and cream. Lovely. I lost my dad this year and was so busy caring for him and mom with dementia that I just haven’t had time to finish it. So this year it is getting done.

  32. Barbara on January 26, 2014 11:44 am

    My next quilting project will be with the fabric Catnap from Lizzy House. It will be Triple Treat from Atkinson Designs. I LOVE this fabric! Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Jocelyn on January 26, 2014 11:50 am

    I am planning on making a Hunters Star in Red and White!! I loved the Red and White display that was in NYC a couple of years ago, and I purposed that I would make a Red and White quilt. So this is the year :-)

  34. Kim on January 26, 2014 11:52 am

    I am planning a country comfort quilt. I love all the warm country colors. Fabric is bought just need to finish up the one before it first.

  35. Lori Morton on January 26, 2014 11:53 am

  36. Brenda M on January 26, 2014 12:13 pm

    would love to look at this magazine and try some projects!

  37. Betty Jacobs on January 26, 2014 12:34 pm

    I recently took a short class on the Arrowhead quilt and it seemed fairly easy, since I’m new to quilting I think this will be a good one to tackle. My colors are pinks and purples.

  38. Joy on January 26, 2014 12:46 pm

    Next project is a rag quilt using some dark flannels in my stash.

  39. Leslie Schmidt on January 26, 2014 2:36 pm

    Of all the quilts I’ve made, there hasn’t been one for our bed. This year I want to make one. I have all the fabrics, but I have a couple more that must be made first. Our quilt will be in shades of blue shading to a light green. This winter has provided ample evidence of the need!

  40. Mrs. H on January 26, 2014 3:15 pm

    A quilt for my parents is my major quilting goal for 2014. The color scheme is burgundy, beige, light green…chosen because the curtains in their room that the quilt is for are burgundy.

  41. Linda Nelson on January 26, 2014 3:39 pm

    I am finally going to make a table runner to cover up scratches on a side table near my front door. I am going to use tumblers, and am thinking of greys, blacks and yellows.

  42. Carolyn C on January 26, 2014 4:58 pm

    I’m addicted to magazines & quilting. I’ll be working on a denim quilt next, been collecting old jeans for years. Always looking for new ideas& this magazine is exactly what I’m looking for! Thanks for the opportunity!

  43. Jane Massingill on January 26, 2014 6:20 pm

    I plan on making a log cabin quilt with earth tone batik fabric. I would love to have the magazine for extra inspiration.

  44. kathy on January 26, 2014 7:13 pm

    new magazine tome…I’d love a subscription! thank you for the offer

  45. Jean G. on January 26, 2014 7:33 pm

    I’m going to make a rag quilt for my grandson with the beautiful muted colors of Wool & Needle flannels by Moda.

  46. Peggy R on January 26, 2014 8:15 pm

    I’ve always wanted to make a photo quilt for my bed, but since I’ve never done any quilting before in my life and always wanted to, I don’t know if you can pick your own color scheme, or if you have to use the background that the photos are on. I really love the oriental fabrics, and if I could incorporate that pattern somehow with the photos, or a special type of square in between the photo squares, I think it would look terrific!! You can’t beat a handmade quilt!!

  47. Louise Marie on January 26, 2014 9:01 pm

    i am finishing up my first quilt for my little grandson. When that is finished, i plan to tackle one for my granddaughter. The color will be pink and green. i already have the material. i can’t wait, but i must finish this quilt with emergency vehicles first.

  48. Louise Marie on January 26, 2014 9:06 pm

    i forgot to mention why i chose these two quilts. My grandson’s uncle, my son, is a paramedic. My grandson is very impressed with the ambulance. Therefore, i chose the emergency vehicles for the quilt. For my granddaughter’s quilt, i chose pink and green because they are my granddaughter’s favorite colors.

  49. Vicki Sprain on January 26, 2014 9:50 pm

    I recently purchased the Quick Curve ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful and plan to make my first Modern quilt using blue, green, pink and purple fun prints along with white for the background of the blocks. The quilt patterns made using this new ruler are very different and I love trying out new quilt designs. I am also a long arm quilter and thought quilting a Modern quilt top would be a fun challenge!

  51. Fran on January 27, 2014 12:01 am

    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.

  52. Jonna on January 27, 2014 3:59 am

    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.

  53. Cynthia on January 27, 2014 4:43 am

    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.

  54. Ronda on January 27, 2014 7:48 am

    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!

  55. Donna Mae on January 27, 2014 10:04 am

    I plan to start a wedding ring quilt for a GD in pastel colors as she plans to marry in 2015.

  56. Melissa Thomas on January 27, 2014 10:42 am

    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.

  57. lisa M. T. on January 27, 2014 11:08 am

    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!

  58. Elaine Rodman on January 27, 2014 12:56 pm

    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.

  59. Kelly on January 27, 2014 1:03 pm

    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!

  60. Raela Stander on January 27, 2014 1:03 pm

    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!

  61. Dana on January 27, 2014 1:09 pm

    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.

  62. Traci Kennedy on January 27, 2014 2:04 pm

    I have a Broken Star kit and hope to get started on that soon.

  63. Sarra on January 27, 2014 3:08 pm

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

  64. Pam S on January 27, 2014 6:24 pm

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

  65. Emily C on January 27, 2014 7:36 pm

    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.

  66. nancy d on January 27, 2014 11:23 pm

    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!

  67. Sara on January 28, 2014 7:56 am

    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!

  68. Renee Tellen on January 28, 2014 9:05 am

    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.

  69. Pat V. on January 28, 2014 2:49 pm

    I have two quilts that were begun at a workshop a year ago — it is time to complete them!

  70. Mimi on January 29, 2014 4:43 pm

    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!

  71. Karrie Smith on January 29, 2014 6:30 pm

    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!

  72. Karen Drake on January 30, 2014 5:41 am

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

  73. DeeAnn S on January 30, 2014 8:42 am

    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.

  74. Heather B on January 30, 2014 11:26 am

  75. Michelle L. on January 30, 2014 9:20 pm
