  1. I’m a beginner machine quilter. I have a brother. not a long arm. I have many quilts, wall quilts, etc.. that I’ve made through out the years.put them in a container to “need to be quilted”. I can’t afford for anyone else to quilt it so I need to know WHERE DO I START?? Do you have any simply design recommendations? Thanks so much!!

  2. You do such beautiful work Lori! Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your beautiful creations! I wonder if you might have any future suggestions for quilted pillow shams and/or throw pillows to dress up solid color (sage and navy) bedding?

  3. Your “doodles” are amazing! So many ideas! Being a machine quilter myself, I know these designs are quite close together and take time. Do you mostly work on small pieces? I’m always thinking how long it would take to do a certain design on a bed sized quilt. Maybe I would be more adventurous if I concentrated on smaller things.

  4. Simply gorgeous! I’d love to know more about how you choose your materials (thread, fabric, batting, needles). Also, I’d like to know more about mistakes in quilting you’ve learned from, I loved the post about your daughter saving a quilt from the trash and you getting a new look at it later.

  5. Of course I want a chance to win one of your beautiful projects! I love seeing your designs and how you break them down step by step———keep doodling with/for us.

  6. Well, that’s really, really pretty and how nice are you to have a give-away, thanks. It might be fun to see how you make these wonders. Maybe a picture of it set up on your machine. Is it a pretty big unit or does it look like a sewing machine?

  7. Suggestions? I have none. I enjoy being surprised by what you post and enjoy the variety. Question? Okay, do you do any sewing other than quilting? I do both quilts and garments but I don’t think there are a lot of garment makers out there any more. I love seeing all your pictures, especially the variety.

  8. Wow, you have some beautiful designs!! I’m hoping to branch out from just stippling, but I’m still quite scared of more intricate designs. Thanks for the giveaway! I’d love to win something like this!

  9. This is so fun! Hey, have you quilted on satin? If so, do you do anything differently – needle, thread, whatever – or just work in your normal mode?

  10. Having only just discovered your blog, I’m afraid I have neither suggestions nor questions … I’ve subscribed and look forward to seeing more of the same from you.

  12. hi im thinking about trying quilting for the first time i have seen some tutorials for “jelly roll” quilts i was wondering if you think this would be a good place for a first timer to start or is there a better beginner quilt to go with :-)x

    • Jelly roll quilts are a very nice way to start quilting. Jelly rolls come in coordinated fabric combinations designed to work together. As a result, your quilt will look great. Secondly, jelly rolls are precision cut. So all you have to do is worry about stitching straight. I hope you have fun. I’d love to see your quilt and if you need any other technical guidance along the way…you know where to find me…

  14. I want in on the Valentine’s quilt. Your blog is
    awesome – I love the quilt ideas but I also love your jaunt posts and photos!

  15. Valentine’s Day??!! Christmas was yesterday! Well, I’m glad I have almost a month to prepare my mind for it! Your work is beautiful and I’m sure I’m not the only one that stares at the photos, wondering, “How did she do that?” 🙂

  16. I love your blog!! How about some ideas for setting triangles for quilts set on point? I love feathers, but don’t want to bore my clients with the same feathers in every quilt.

  17. I am new to free motion quilting and am really struggling. Do you have any basic tips.
    Love the hearts. Thank you for the chance of winning. Angela

    • I have have quilted for many years. I am just now interested in machine quilting. I look foward to your post because they inspire me to learn this new to me technique. Your quilts are beautiful.

  18. Hello, I absolutley LOVE quilts! Have since I was a kid. I only have one very tattered quilt passed down from my grandmother. I would love to learn how to make quilts myself, I suppose a sewing machine would be a great place to start. I have someone making a quilt for me, for my soon to be husband, but of course its very pricey. Speaking of valentines day, I am getting married on Valintines day, 2013! I happened upon your site because I was looking for ideas for a quilt to have made in rememberence of our very special day. I saw that you are giving away a very beautiful quilt and to be entered I had to leave a post. I hope I win, but regardless, it will be a real treat for whom ever wins it!
    Good luck to everyone!
