    I am an advanced beginner quilter that has so much to learn. I’m anxious to see your latest magazine because I will learn a lot from it. The next quilt I’m attempting to make is a pattern with stars. It looks difficult to me, but I’ve been told it’s easy. Thanks for doing this giveaway.

    I consider myself intermediate…I enjoy paper piecing, applique, machine piecing, *adapting* patterns and liberated styles… I love ALL of it! :-)

  5. Nancy says:

    I’m a beginner and love something simple that I can quickly finish.

  6. Nancy B from Many LA says:

    I guess I’d be an advanced beginner, and I love paper piecing.

  7. Kris S says:

    I love to hand applique and paper piecing and scrap quilting and Civil War fabrics and batiks. I guess I love it all. I am an intermediate quilter.

  8. JoAnne Murphy says:

    I think I am an intermediate quilter. I love trying new patterns. The easiest quilt I made was using the foldy stuff technique. Paper piecing is fun and I have some paper piece stamps that I have used to make a batik cat quilt. This month I started a kit using wool felt. I am seriously addicted to Fat Quarters. I am planning my next quilt to be made from yellow and blue fabric and have collected a stack of different color shades so far. I love reading and reviewing all the Quiltmaker magazines and look forward to the newest 100 Blocks Magazine. Thanks for providing so many choices of patterns in them.

  9. QuitSue says:

    I’ve just got to grips with curved piecing and I love the effect it gives.

  10. Sandra says:

    I am a intermediate to advanced quilter, depends on the technique (-; I like paper foundation piecing and machine quilting. Thank you for the chance to win.

  11. Lillian says:

    I love both applique (only a beginner) and piecing (intermediate). Thanks for your giveaway.

  12. Sharon says:

    I love machine piecing, and consider myself intermediate.
