    I prefer the look of hand quilting but machine quilting is so much faster so that is what I do.

    ReplyDelete
  57. You go, girl! Congratulations on the milestone! My answer: I look for quilting inspiration on the colorful pages of magazines, any magazine will do. My question: What do you do when you enter a quilt store and don't find what you are looking for: leave, or purchase something else?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I find inspiration in solving quilting problems...Not enough of a fabric, a color I Have To Use... A special gift for a special reason.
    My question is; Do you ever get up extra early to sew?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Is my husband reading this? I rarely leave a quilt store empty handed -even when I can't find what I'm looking for. It's like dress shopping, the perfect dress is always the one you weren't looking for. My question - The perfect holiday is on the coast or in the mountains?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Congratulations on one million! The perfect holiday could be either coast or mountains. How about we alternate years?

    My question - where is your favorite quilt retreat?

    Kathy at ycreekquilts@gmail.com

  61. The Oregon coast is beautiful so you would definitely find me heading to the coast. My question - solids or prints?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Holy cow! Congratulations on an amazing milestone and thanks for the chance to win such a generous gift! My answer to Cynthia Brunz Designs question is prints. Although I would like to make a solids quilt. My question: how many quilts have you made? If it's a lot, just ball park it! :)

  90. I just added them up this week. There are 37 quilts in some stage of progress. Frightening, right? What is your favorite designer to make quilts with and why?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Brigette Heitland I would say is my favorite designer. I love the patterns and fabrics she comes up with because they seem to be so fresh and modern and just what I am thinking of at the moment she creates them. She has a couple new lines coming out called Paper and one later called Ink. Love them. Okay so my question is where do you find inspiration for your quilts?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hello Kris,

    Absolutely anything can give inspiration for quilts - crockery designs, pictures in books, fabric designs, leaves picked up when out on a walk...

    My question - would you rather sew to Italian baroque or heavy metal?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Gosh, my question couldn't have been that difficult could it?

    Congratulation Sarah! I have put a mention and link on my blog.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  98. Bias Binding :) Would you rather only wear purple or orange for the rest of your life?!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'm a redhead, so definitely not orange, it would have to be purple, although to be honest I would rather it be green or blue. LOL

  151. I'm a new follower on Instagram, as Ceciliaquilts. Thanks for the great giveaway and congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  152. Did not see an either/or question so I'll just answer the last question posted. My oldest UFO is a batik quilt I pieced when I lived in Ecuador 3 years ago. Thought having a long arm would eliminate the stash of quilt tops. Who am I kidding?! So, white, red, or something in between (wine that is).
