    I like the variety of articles and projects you guys already offer.
    This is a great magazine! I will never get all my “good intentions” done!

  3. Miyavi says:

    I want to see pet theme quilts :)

  4. LizA. says:

    Quiltmaker is by far, my favorite magazine. I’ve been getting it for years and can’t throw out a single issue. I’d like to see more scrap quilts. After a LOT of years of quilting, I have accumulated a LOT of scraps.

  5. Laurie P says:

    I really liked the Pal’s quilts you had. They are wonderful love to see more of those. I think some more masculine designs too. I love the magazine, keep it up.

  6. Angie says:

    I love the variety of the blocks in Vol 6. I’m VERY new to quilting so any tips, techniques, tutorials, etc. even the ones seasoned quilters would assume I should know would be greatly appreciated by me and maybe great refreshers for those not so new to the craft.

  7. Jqluo says:

    More mini quilts. :)

  8. Carin says:

    I have actually never read any of your magazines. I hope to win a copy!

  9. Lyn says:

    I’d love it if you did like Martha Stewart Living does, and let print subscribers have the digital edition for free!

  10. Maria Kievit says:

    Maybe some smaller quilts, and even more combinations of different blocks. Or how about an all scrappy block (every block different…) Love the magazine.

  11. What fun this is and one more day to go !!! Scarlette shobbs@scarlette.com

  12. Carmen says:

    I’d love to see some beginner tutorials – ones to help some of us get over the fear of trying new techniques

  13. miklaw says:

    I would love more fat-quarter-friendly patterns.

  14. Bev Gunn says:

    Just keep doing what you have been doing-great magazine and love all the extras you provide! Quiltmaker is one of my “continuing” subscriptions and a go-to for new projects.

  15. Lea Brummett says:

    So many of us read many blogs and websites, visit quilt shows and swoon over the more advanced techniques of quilting. I think it would be nice to see more advanced patterns. Maybe a section that takes it up knotch like the chef Emeril “BAM!”

  16. becanne says:

    More step-by-step photos of the construction process. I love many of the projects and the up-to-date fabrics used, but some of the directions can be a bit daunting when it is a new technique.

  17. thunder says:

    more of the same. in other words…just keep up the good work !!

  18. Debbie M says:

    I only see the occasional Quiltmaker, but it’s always nice to see articles and patterns by Bonnie Hunter!

  19. missmoozie says:

    Your magazine is so wonderful! I’m not sure how it can be improved. It would be fun to see quilts from other countries though. Thank you for your giveaway.


  20. Gwendolyn Clark says:

    I’d love to see more really scrappy quilts like Bonnie Hunter makes. Thanks for the giveaways.

  21. Karen says:

    I would like to see more machine quilting – I am just starting machine quilting and just devour everything I can find on the subject.
