  2. Nancy says:

    I read your articles! Good information! Love your blocks too!

  3. I’ve read Brain Free Quilting-something that I need badly!!

  4. Carla G says:

    I just read Brain Free Sewing! :) I love reading your articles! :)

  5. Amy says:

    Love the brain free sewing option. My machine is an antique, and has to be in the living room. Unpacking it each time I want to sew is a hassle and prevents me from doing it. Having something prepared would make it easier!

  6. Linda says:

    I love the Patch Pal series, I have 15 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild, and another one on the way. I know they would cherish any of Patch Pals. the penguin is too cute. I enjoy all the quilt tips, about seam allowances, and ho to make quilt labels
    tips are great when you quilt. I love Quiltmakers magazine they have great things in them, I love the 100 block magazine there are so many great designers too.
    Appreciate your company for publishing these magazine. Linda G

    I love looking at all the quilts.

  8. arlette says:

    I read all your posts, but specially enjoyed the Patch Pals Quilts, am I right it’s cross stitch quilts?, they’re so much fun to make :)

  9. hmp says:

    Not enough time yet to read through the posts, but looks like there could be some helpful hints and ideas.

  10. donna says:

    Have had so much fun with the patch pals quilts. Also the seam allowance article is a lot of help. Thanks for the articles.

  11. judi says:

    Just read Brain-free sewing zone. Love that 2 rail block for making zigzag quilts scrappy, using very light with med to dark. Fun! and brain-free. Then I have a wonderful charity quilt to donate!

  12. Alicia says:

    I totally relate to the Brain-Free sewing zone article, I have that with all of my hobbies that is why I enjoy them so much! ;)

  13. Nancy B from Many LA says:

    I live in a brain-free zone! LOL!

  14. Patricia says:

    I read the article on how to make a quilt label. What I really like about it is if you frame the label with leftover backing scraps, your label will blend in to the quilt really nicely. Thanks sew much for this chance to win :-)

  15. Crystal Medley says:

    My favorite block today is Arlene Neely’s@, Quiltingwith rabbits, I love the pastels, and little rabbit.

  16. Michelle Klingaman says:

    I love the fabric…so pretty. I’ve learned so much about different blocks, how some very simple blocks can make such a variety.

  17. Joyce Mitchell says:

    I am loving all the Patch Pals quilts. I thought Purr Patch was my favorite but then you came out with Polar Patch. Thanks.

  18. Kathy B says:

    I like the brain free sewing zone. Yes, I have a project that I like to do when I want to sew but don’t know what I want to start or don’t have a lot of time but want to get something done!

  19. Louisa in BC says:

    Love the Patch Pals quilts!

  20. cynthia meredith says:

    I read all your posts and enjoy the blog! Thanks.

  21. Sydney says:

    So stinkin cute! LOVE IT!!!

  22. Theresa Christofferson says:

    This is the first time I have seen 100 Blocks, the Acorn Away is my favorite block I would like to make, I love it because it is just unique and simple to make from the looks of it.

  23. Judy S says:

    I just read the tip on Quick Quilt Labels. Great information and the comments were good too. Thanks!

  24. Martina says:

    Thanks for the post about seam allowance. This is really helpful and now I know that I must adjust the seam allowance to whatever project I am working on so that it is accurate for that project. Great!

  25. Rosalind Gutierrez says:

    I read “Let’s Talk Seam Allowance” and learned that the fabric weight and thread weight can alter the stitched seam width.

  26. VickiT says:

    Oh how cute is the Patch Pal in Volume 6! I love Penguins and this block is adorable with the Momma and baby. Super cute.

    I just read (and commented) on the article, “Let’s Talk Seam Allowance”. Great info in that article and excellent help for the future as well. As I stated in my comment, I never gave any thought as to the weight of fabric in relation to the seam allowance. Thank you. That surely will be something to keep in mind.

  27. Lisa Marie says:

    I loved the post about the patch pals quilts. They are so cute! I’ve got several of them on my to-do list and hate to see the series end. Although I know you’ll come up with something else that’s wonderful in future magazine issues.

  28. Cathryn H says:

    Reading the blog is easy. Deciding which pattern to make or which book I want or what fabric to pick – that’s the harder stuff.

  29. Tami Chaulk says:

    I read through all of the articles, but the one that really caught my attention was the Brain-Free Sewing Zone. I have a lot of 1.5″ strips and am tired of making small 4 patches and 9 patches. I think I’d like to start making some Little Windmill blocks. That would make a really cute baby quilt. I also will have to into trying that paper-backed pre-treated label fabric that was mentioned in A Quick Quilt Label Method.
