Then I spent four years as QM's Interactive Editor, working to generate much of our online content. Now I'm back to patterns and how-tos, which is a great fit for me. I still love writing about quilt-related topics for Quilty Pleasures, and I always have my finger on the pulse of the quilting world. I teach a variety of quilt classes and give guild programs, too.

  24. susan litle says:

    I love any quilts that have to do with cats. Also I love all abstract color combination quilts. My mother was an artist and we used to sit in the sun on the back porch all afternoon and discuss what colors would be best for her pictures (oils) and my quilts and embroidery. I would love to make a quilt (if I got lucky) in her honor and hang it on my wall. Thanks for the opportunity to enter. Even though she has been gone since 94 I know she is my guardian angel watching over me along with my husband who passed in 07.

  35. Mary C in WA says:

    Not sure was either Facebook or website, really enjoy it. Have lots of new ideas and techniques to try

  47. Sue Wagenaar says:

    I have been a big fan of your books and have each one in my library. I began a search this morning on The Union Quilters, looking for a pattern made up of all the blocks sent in to you 3 years ago when you were first writing the book. I was so excited to see you at the Quilt Expo in Madison and take home 3 blocks to make. I have been searching to see if a quilt has been made of all the hundreds of blocks sent in to you. That is how I came upon this blog. It would be wonderful to win the bundle. Thank you for all the time you spend on keeping us a part of The Elm Creek Quilters.
    Sue Wagenaar

    Hi – I heard about it on Bonnie Hunter’s blog, and on several other quilting blogs I read. I’ve signed up today for the newsletter, I already receive Quiltmaker , and read the blog. I don’t do facebook, so this is it. I like being able to read the magazine anywhere, and sharing it with my quilting group when they visit, so digital doesn’t interest me. Thanks for having the blog hop!

    I first heard about it on Facebook. I am really enjoying reading the blogs. Thanks

  58. Barb J says:

    I found out about the Vol. 6 blog tour from following the Quilty Pleasures blog. I laughed when I read the comment calling this blog “Guilty” Pleasures, because it really is! I sneak away from my “real job” to check the blog!

  59. Lou says:

    I am a long time subscriber to the magazine and that’s how I heard about this Blog. I have participated in all the hops and enjoyed them all!!!

  67. Debby says:

    I heard about it through my email. I’m just so excited! What a great time I’ve had visiting everyone’s blogs and checking out all their “stuff”. I don’t blog so the whole experience was new for me. (‘course I didn’t get much sewing done as I spent so much time looking at everyone else’s work!!!) Thank you so much for sponsoring this fun time and great give-away! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  68. Sandra Timmons says:

    I found it on Guilty Pleasures blog. Diane does a fantastic job each and every time for the Quiltmaker’s 100 Block’s tour. There are so many talented designers who share their creative blocks with us. Sometimes there are tutorials; other times there are different layouts for that block. We have learned so much from these designers who spend their valuable time sharing their talent with us. Thanks goes out to all of these designers and all the sponors involved each time there is a blog tour.

    Sandi T.

  82. Karyn says:

    I’ve participated in several before and look forward to them (anxiously). I have every volume except #1 (I foolishly lent it out and it never returned). I absolutely love this publication and it is one of my top resources. Thank you for all the work that goes into this to make it fabulous!

  84. Janet P. says:

  87. Joanna says:

I love the different blocks and have made several for different projects. Keep up the good work.

  89. Margaret says:

    It would be so awesome to win this giveaway. Thanks for the chance

  90. VickiT says:

    I first heard about the blog tour on Quiltmakers blog. I’m here reading, although not always commenting at least four times a week checking to see what’s new. Then I made sure to clear a block of time each day so I could take my time to read each post done on each blog daily. Also I wanted to spend time reading the new blogs that I had never seen before this blog tour.
    Thank you very much for the 100 Blocks blog tour with each issue. It’s fun to read what each designer has to say about their block and thoughts they had when creating it as well.

  91. Barb Colvin says:

    Gosh! I don’t remember how I heard about the tour for Vol 1 –probably on one of the many blogs I follow. As a result of that blog tour, I signed up to follow many new blogs including Quilty Pleasures. Awesome fun! and lots of inspiration :)

  92. Donna Russ says:

    I read about it today on Facebook, what an awesome giveaway….thanks……

  93. Mary says:

    I really don’t know how I heard about the Blog Tour–I am a subscriber, and I think I may have received an e-mail. It’s been FUN FUN FUN though! THANKS!

  94. Connie Tessier says:

    I found it about it here on the blog.

  95. thunder says:

    e mail newsletter , thanks for the tour, and the great giveaways :)

  96. judy rahaeuser says:

    Had an email about the contest & deceided to join the “Blog tour”. It’s so interesting on how each “author” treated their posting. I especially liked those that did a mini tutorial for their block. It make it much easier to envision the finial block. Also those that posted a finish wall hanging, quilt etc. also really helped in how to use their block.

  97. Mary Ann says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I heard about the blog tour right here!

  98. I heard about the blog tour right here, on your blog! My b-day is next week, so hoping it will bring me some luck! Thank you for the fun!
