  1. Cecilia says:

    I enjoy all kinds of quilting, so I don’t think of myself as just one type. There are so many techniques out there and I enjoy learning as many of them as possible.

  2. Shannon says:

    Well I am still finding my groove. I would say traditional plus a little modern.

  3. Gina says:

    I’m a traditional quilter hoping to become an art quilter when I get more comfortable with it.

  4. Judy says:

    I am just beginning as a quilter so I am sticking to the traditional for now but would someday like to branch out and try art quilts.

  5. I think I am a traditional beginner :D
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Jennifer J says:

    I do both kinds of quilts. I like both kinds of patterns and both kinds of fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  8. Debbi says:

    Traditional! Love the block tour!

  9. I’m a traditional, but I often lean over and do some modern quilts too!

  10. Sandi says:

    Mostly traditional with a slight lean (especially in color selection) toward modern.

  11. Patricia says:

    As alot of quilters, I started out as a Traditional quilter in high school. Now I am more into Art quilts.Whatever inspires me I try to envision as a quilt. It’s alot of fun and I have made some interesting quilts (great and so-so). Now I am making quilts for grandchildren, some traditional and some with my own personal twist to suit each child’s personality.

  12. Brenda says:

    traditional quilter, with a little twist sometimes.

  13. Susan Foster says:

    I love this block! It really captures the beauty of the slender trees in their fall foliage! My tastes range from nostalgic traditional to unique contemporary. Machine piecer, apprentice appliquer, and seasoned long-armer.

  14. SuzK says:

    I’m a traditional quilter. I’m primarily a hand-piecer. I go back to using cereal boxes for templates. I can still remember that pizza-cutter doohickey showing up at the fabric store! I’ve been working at getting better at machine piecing so I can do more give-away quilts that can withstand lots of washing.

  15. Dianne Giles says:

    I love piecing and applique, so, I guess I am an all rounder!! Thanks for the chance, Dianne

  16. Deb G. in VA says:

    I’m more of a traditional quilter, but I like some of the modern quilts.

  17. Pat V. says:

    I consider myself a traditional quilter, although I have tried out a few modern patterns. But I just love pieced blocks!

  18. Kate says:

    Id say I was a tradtional quilter with touches of modern methods and fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

  19. Linda Caldwell says:

    I make art quilts but I also make traditional quilts look arty so is that artditional? Thanks for the opportunity!

  20. Amanda says:

    I do admire a lot of the art quilts I have seen. I just don’t think I’ll ever try making one myself. I consider myself a traditional kind of gal. Give me log cabins and stars and blanket stitched applique. :D

  21. Nancy Sue says:

    I refer to myself as a Newbie Kah-blew-ie quilter. I’m still getting my walking feet under me, so I’m in a bit of an identity crisis. I’m trying all techniques, styles, and sizes, so I’m gleaning from all the techniques that I’m learning and making mistakes along the way, thus, the Newbie Kah-blew-ie.

  22. I have art quilt aspirations, but root it in traditional blocks. Sometimes I do traditional designs in arty colors. Sometimes I do samplers. I intend to do variations on traditional blocks that curve in unexpected places…but I prefer ruler and rotary cutting to templates.

  23. Judy says:

    I enjoy all three. It depends on the person or occasion as to which style I make.

  24. Nerida says:

    I’m a Quilter through and through will try any technique or style once maybe more if I enjoy it. And I love learning new techniques/ideas all the time.

  25. Cindy J says:

    Since it all depends on my mood for the day, I have to say I’m just a plain ole’ quilter! Don’t really know what label to put on it. I love dipping my toes in all styles!

  26. kim says:

    I like geometrics and pinwheels. Thank you for the giveaway.

  27. sara says:

    Hard to answer – I am probably a traditional quilter with some modern tendencies!!!

  28. Rachell R. says:

    I am so traditional! I love balance and contrast! I love traditional blocks and I love playing with color to see the different patterns within the blocks and/or the settings. I’ve done a lot of sampler quilts so far, because I want to challenge myself and teach myself something new with every project, and also because I just can’t decide which blocks I want to do whole quilts out of! I mostly piece, and foundation-piece (using new methods–Peggy Martin’s “Quick Strip”). Trying to learn a little applique. One of my favorite books right now is Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini. My local Bernina store has a club and we’re almost done with our 12 blocks from the book (Block of the Month). I decided to make mine king-sized so I’m doing 30 more blocks from the book !
