  1. Julia Priest says:

    I consider myself a beginner quilter even though I have made several quilts. Quilting has consumed me to the point that think about it all the time and can’t wait to get home from work to work on a project. I also enjoy exploring quilting websites and magazines.

  2. sandra pipitone says:

    I’m a beginer with experience!

  3. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    I would say that I am an intermediate quilter, except when it comes to applique. There I am a beginner, but am working on it! :)

  4. Sandra Ham says:

    I am a beginner, retired and love to read, try to quilt, and crochet a little.

  5. Lois Ruley says:

    I am an intermediate quilter and enjoy learning new things with each quilt I make~

  6. Susan Lee says:

    I am a confident intermediate quilter. I love these 100 Block magazines!

  7. Pat Spiegel says:

    My quilting is somewhere in between. Some days I feel like an advanced quilter, but usually intermediate. Thanks for the chance to win. I love your publication.

  8. Diane Gidley says:

    I would say that i am intermediate, whilst i am still learning new techniques in the quilting world and i am at times astounded by the quilt blocks that are shown in the magazines supplied by other quilters. They always look professionally completed.

  9. Jennifer Reed says:

    I am definitely a beginner, but I enjoy every minute my family allows me the time to create beautiful creations !!!

  10. kathy says:

    I, too, consider myself an intermediate quilter, others may not!! Either way I really appreciate the skill rankings given with each quilt design in your magazine. Kathy

  11. Alice M says:

    I would say intermediate, still have a lot of techniques to learn.

  12. Linda Erickson says:

    I’m one of those Intermediate/Advanced people….

  13. Maxine says:

    I have just discovered this blog, lucky me. I would consider myself a beginner, willing to challenge myself. Starting to collect my “stash” of fabric. Looking forward to all the quilts to come!

  14. I’m a beginner, learn a lot from blogs and you tube would love to win.

  15. I guess I’d call myself an advanced intermediate quilter. But there are so many techniques I haven’t tried! Maybe I’m more of a beginner after all.

  16. Rose says:

    Always look forward to the tour. I see myself as an advanced beginner. Thanks for a wonderful magazine and the chance to win.

  17. Debra says:

    I consider myself an intermediate quilter. There is still much room for improvement! I just hope to live long enough to complete all my UFO’s as well as all those projects yet to be started!!!

  18. JudiC says:

    Definitely a Beginner

  19. Chris P says:

    I think I’m an intermediate quilter in both piecing and quilting on my Handiquilter. Having the Pro-Stitcher makes me seem as though I am an advanced quilter with all of the digital patterns that are out there. Love that machine.

  20. Robin Mundell says:

    I just purchased a new sit down machine and this would be a great way for me to get my quilting skills started.

  21. Kelly Cline says:

    I would day intermediate.

  22. Joyce Carter says:

    I have been doing hand quilting for a long time, but I don’t think of myself as advanced. I guess I will say I am between intermediate and advanced. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Thea Hardcastle says:

    I am a beginner at quilting. I have been sewing forever. I would love to win.

  24. Julia Mavity-Hudson says:

    I guess I am an intermediate quilter.

  25. Maryellen says:

    I think intermediate, as I still need to do paper piecing, but I’ve conquered some difficult blocks, and do my own FMQ. Good blocks today!

  26. Betsy Rodgers says:

    I guess I would say I’m somewhere between a beginner and intermediate quilter. I have sewn all my life but only been piecing quilts for a short time. I’m still trying to get up the never to try to quilt one myself.

  27. Penny R says:

    I think I am an intermediate quilter but maybe if we asked my long arm quilter, she would tell you something different. After all, she sees everything I do, both good and bad.

  28. Michele Fetter says:

    I’m an intermediate that is just a newbie to paper piecing. I love that new challenge. Been quilting six or seven years and treasure the friends I’ve made along the journey.

  29. Elizabeth Heggem says:

    I’m an intermediate to advanced quilter and love to learn new techniques:)

  30. VickiT says:

    I have read and studies a huge amount of info about quilting so it’s hard to judge where I think I might fall. I think in practice as I’ve not made a lot of quilts, I’d guess probably an advanced beginner, but in knowledge probably more in the intermediate category.

  31. Mary Ann says:

    I think I’m an intermediate quilter.

  32. Janet Frank says:

    I would say an advanced quilter. If you’ve been doing it for 25+ yrs, I guess that would be advanced.

  33. Vickie Miller says:

    Probably think myself an intermediate quilter but willing to try anything

  34. Karlene says:

    I would say I’m somewhere in between. Always looking forward to learning something new.

  35. Julie LaDuke says:

    I am advanced intermediate. My quilting skills have grown the quickest when I am able to teach others. That is just how it goes!!!

  36. Susan H says:

    I would say I’m in the intermediate range. Give me a pattern and I will change something. Give me a sewing machine and I’ll try anything. So much quilting so little time.

  37. Debbie Yarbrough says:

    I am all, I have my days when I want easy, then days I want to be challenged. I never have one quilt in the making.

  38. Denise says:

    I would say I’m an intermediate quilter. Enough experience to know what not to do, not quite enough to know exactly what to do.

  39. Mel Meister says:

    I’m between intermediate and advanced.

  40. Cecilia says:

    I would have to say that I’m an intermediate quilter, although there are times I still feel like a beginner.

  41. Audrey says:

    I would say I am an intermediate quilter though I challenge myself with advanced piecing and layouts. Believing learning is a life long experience, I am always up to learning a new technique or skill. I love the Snow Star block featured today. Lots of secondary design potential. The blog tour is great.

  42. I think I’m pretty proficient, so somewhere between intermediate and advanced. I try to learn something new with each new project

  43. Megan Griffith says:

    I like to call myself an over-confident beginner – I am a beginner but I seem to have a habit of biting off a little more than I can chew!

  44. Sharon says:

    I’m a beginner quilter. I really love Denise Russart’s Splash block!!!

  45. Donna Joy says:

    Probably still a beginner, I am learning so much from all the blogs. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  46. Ronda Morrow says:

    I’ve been quilting for 40 years, I’d say I am an intermediate…always learning and improving. thanks for the opportunity to win!

  47. Tami Chaulk says:

    I’ve been quilting just a little over a year, so I guess I am still pretty much a beginner. However, I’ve been sewing for about 50 years. My mother taught me when I was young as she was a seamstress and wanted me to learn. I guess I’m sort of bordering on being an intermediate.

  48. Rebecca Schmitt says:

    Well, I’ve been sewing for quite awhile, but I still feel like a beginner quilter. I still have challenges getting my blocks to come out straight!

  49. Maureen says:

    Hmmm, I guess I’m an intermediate quilter. Nothing scares me away…I’ll try anything! Thanks for a chance at the give-away.

  50. Laura Rist says:

    My daughter taught me how to quilt about two years ago and I haven’t stopped quilting since. I’ve even taken her quilting further by free motion quilting. Love, love, love it!!

  51. Linda Christianson says:

    I think of my self as advanced until I see some real detailed quilts. Love the Moda fabric and I love my HQ16. Still learning on my longarm.

  52. Deborah DeBerry says:

    I feel like a beginner, because I have so much to learn. My friends at my quilt shop say I am more than that! In some ways I hope I will always feel like a beginner, so that I retain the eagerness to soak up so much shared knowledge and use it in my meager projects.

  53. Susan Blumenshein says:

    I’m a beginning quilter but I’ve sewn all my life. My first quilt was a picture I designed for my dad’s hot tub room. It has since faded but not my love for fabric! Would love to win.

  54. Frank says:

    I’m a beginner . Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. Sandy says:

  57. Judy says:

    I have been sewing most of my life but when it comes to the actual quilting part of a quilt I am just a beginner.

  58. Ann Flower says:

    I’m intermediate to advanced piece quilter, a little above beginner where applique is used. A good hand quilter. Not so good at machine quilting so I send the tops out to others with better skills than my own.

  59. Patty M says:

    I think that I will always call myself a beginner!

  60. Pamela Reim says:

    I’d say advanced in applique; intermediate in long arm and piecing (dislike piecing intensely :) )

  61. Patty M says:

    I think that I will always consider myself a beginner!

  62. Kathy Gruwell says:

    I am an advanced quilter. My Gramma started me off at a young age and I’ve found comfort and solace in piecing, applique, etc. ever since. Now I’m in my 50′s I love the chance to share with others.

  63. Melisa says:

    I am an intermediate working on renewing old skills in piecing with new ones on a longarm. Love the ruffled feathers block with the beautiful batiks!

  64. Mary DeBrunner says:

    I am an advanced quilt top maker but a beginning machine quilter. Prefer quilts that are longarm quilted. They add such beauty!

  65. Jackie C says:

    I have only been quilting for a year now, so I’m really still a beginner, but I’m quickly becoming intermediate…love learning and trying new things.

  66. Robin says:

    I would call myself a beginner quilter!

  67. Susan Brooks says:

    I think I’m intermediate, non sewers think I’m advanced. Non-sewers also think you should make them a quilt.

  74. pat says:

    I have been a subscriber of quilt maker for a number of years now; and I love the patterns. I’ve taken lots of classes and have made many quilts. my most difficult was the double wedding ring. I made it for my in-laws for their 50th wedding anniversary. they loved it.

  75. Debbie says:
