Our Day!

It's finally our day on the Moda Friendship Quilt Along.  We hope you are enjoying it and visiting old friends and new on this digital coffee klatch.

This is our block.......

And here is the PDF file for all the instructions.  Are you making them all and getting your friends to sign them?

We sure wish we could offer all the great stuff that the other stops along this hop have offered you.....
beautiful photos of quilt blocks and lovelies, or even some good ol' photo-shopped jokes.  Alas, either no time or no skill for such things.  I'd make up some glamorous excuse - but it's simply that we are in a time crunch with writing new patterns, making new quilts, and planning our first trip to France.   Oh wait - that IS a glamorous excuse.  Excusez-moi!

Well, when handed lemons - make lemonade.  We'll do what works for best for us - a giveaway!

Make a comment on what quilt you would make if you had more time before midnight March 2nd
And you can get this....
Indigo Crossing Layer Cake™

Or Maybe this.........

A Honeycomb™ of our newest collection - Midwinter Reds

Still not enough incentive.... how about some Candy™ of both these collections


I will even toss in some scraps of the now in progress quilts.  As a matter of fact - I'll add yardage to all of the above pre-cuts so you can get started on one of your dream quilts.

Both Polly and I are multi-tasking like crazy to make all of our deadlines.  I think you know about one of my favorite multi-tasking tricks is to listen to audio books while I drive.  The newest audio book from the library is here today - to inspire me to work and to get me into the mood for Paris -
Les Miserables book on CD

Look closely folks - that is 51 CD's.  If I drive from Paris Maine to Paris Texas with stops at Paris Arkansas and Paris Kentucky - I still won't make a dent in this baby.  Hmmmm, if only there were an easier way to enjoy this story, you know........like a movie. 

Make sure to visit the other stops today on the Moda Friendship Quilt Along

I'm up late and took a chance that you were too. I always love your designs and have used many of them in the quilts I've made. To date, I have a list of 34 quilts I'd like to make. I think I better get cracking. I'm so envious of a trip to France. I hope you post lots of pictures.

Yep, the movie just about any version would be good.
Which would be a good movie to watch while hand piecing a Feathered Star, the hard part, red and white or blue and white. Love your fabrics, thank you. Sandy

Doreen B said...

More time ....I'd love to make a Dear Jane quilt.
Thanks so much for your great giveaways, and the
chance to win!

ytsmom said...

Well, I just made a UFO, etc list, and I have stuff for about projects, and that does not include my UFOs! So many quilts, so little time.

Great Block! I would love to make a Farmer's Wife quilt if I had more time! Thanks for the chance to win!

Patti said...

I would make a blue and white quilt with tiny nine patches. I adore nine patch quilts and have always wanted a blue and white one. I'd use blocks that finish at 1 1/2". I'd alternate them with blue and white 1 1/2" half square triangle squares - maybe in a barn raising setting?

Createology said...

Your block is beautiful. I am enjoying this hop even though I am not a quilter...yet! I am attempting to make a Farmer's Wife multi block wall hanging. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Pat said...

Hi Laurie, I'd love to make a double wedding ring quilt. Also patiently waiting for Indigo Crossing for my next quilt.

Sew crafty kitty knits said...

If I had more time, I would love to make a bias tape appliqué knot quilt. Love the look but definitely not enough hours in the day right now! Thank you for sharing your block.

kathy said...

if i had more time between now and march 1 i would finish cutting out the alternate blocks and cornerposts for my current project. i am so looking forward to indigo coming to a quilt shop near me. thanks for a chance to win.

Barbara J said...

It's the Ocean Waves for me and in blues and whites! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

Jan Baker said...

I have been wanting to make a tumbling block quilt for years. I have been picking up fabric when ever I see something I love, probably have enough for 3 of them by now. Just have to sit down and sew. 3bakergirlsgo@gmail.com

suzanne said...

I've been dithering about the kit for the incredible applique quilt you have out there in the Indigo Crossing fabrics. That's what I'd make if I had the time and the skill. Thanks for your fabrics and patterns which I very much enjoy!

Nancy in WI said...

I've been wanting to make a Granny Square quilt. Love your new line!

hiyacinth said...

It's kinda of funny because I'm retired and have lots of time, but still there isn't enough time to make all the quilts I'd wish to make, like a NY Beauty.

Deborah said...

If I had more time I would make so many quilts - starting with a rainbow log cabin! Thanks for the chance to win some amazing fabric.

Leanne V said...

Thanks for the great givaway

Anonymous said...

I just happened to buy Indigo Crossing wovens and Ikats to use in a house quilt...your give away would be wonderful compliments.
Thanks for the opportunity.

tpott said...

If time were not a factor I'd love to make a log cabin quilt with some needle turn appliqué and hand quilt it. Well, if time and talent were not a factor. I'm very good at machine piecing, not great at sewing by hand. Thanks for the chance to win some of your lovely fabric, especially candy without the calories. ;->Toni Anne

DeAnna Julie Dodson said...

Oooh, if I had time, I'd learn to hand quilt. The look out world! :D

BarbB said...

Love the Indigo Crossing, and a tiny little basket quilt would be really fun to make in a few days. Thought that I was the only one who might say Dear Jane, but I was not!

Ellen in Oregon said...

If I had the time & enough quilter's courage. I would like to attempt a Pineapple quilt. I am in love with your Winter Reds collection and can't wait to get my hands on some of the Indigo Blues for a Snowball/Nine Patch quilt. I have the pattern & the time for that one - just need some of your fabric to get started. Can't wait to see your new patterns.

giddy99 said...

If I had more time, I'd make all of the quilts of which I have little pictures taped to my home office door! That's my old-school "Pinterest" board, I guess. :)

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Not only time, but if I had a Go cutter to speed up the cutting - would love to make a tumbler quilt.

CathyK said...

My dream is to make a Farmer's Wife quilt one day. Have a wonderful time in Paris!! Thank you for the chance at the giveaway.

Quel said...

I cannot say enough, how excited I am about this midwinter reds!! I have such a huge list of quilts I want I make. If I had to pick one finished by March 2, I'd pick a pineapple quilt as well. Thanks for the opportunity to win these lovelies.

Janet said...

Oh, I would make Indigo Revival! I LOVE that line and I love the trees in the border of that quilt. That's a lot of hours of listening - enjoy!!

janet said...

I would make a house quilt...maybe blue and white with a touch of red. Thanks

Just Sew Sue said...

I want to join the Oribt stitch along

Stephanie said...

I would love to do a hexagon quilt or a scallops quilt. They take so much time but they're both on my list of quilts to do! All a farmers wife quilt...I have the book, I just need to get cracking on it!

Thanks a bunch!

Carol said...

I would make Indigo Revival! Love it.
Les Mis was a fabulous movie! But hard to quilt to, because of tears!

Sharon S said...

Top on my lost is Rose of Sharon. For obvious reasons.

Anonymous said...

I would love to make ANY quilt! Working 2jobs at the moment leaves little time for anything! That includes fabric shopping, poor me. Looking forward to having time in the next month or so to actually firing up Rhoda and getting something, anything done. Love your new fabric line. Sheri in Maine

Faithful Quilter:Elaine's Journey said...

Love your Indigo Crossing fabric. If I had lots of time I'd love to make Mrs. Billings Coverlet".... It would be an heirloom for sure. Thank you!

lia said...

I would make a big hexagon quilt. lia.vandenbrand@live.nl

Heidee Hallam said...

I need more time to make *any* quilt... there are three I need to make this year: a charity quilt by 1st June, a baby quilt by 1st July and another charity quilt by 1st October... and then there are all the others I want to work on, like the Farmers Wife Sampler that's been waiting for me for a year.

Loving these Friendship blocks... Oh yeah! Um... that would be two more I need to make by July...! O_o

Hildy said...

With more time I'd sew more perhaps a farmer's wife quilt!
hildy(at)ebertzeder(dot)de

thedodds said...

I would love to attempt one of the sampler quilts - like the Farmers Wife - but that would require both time and...ahem...a good deal more skill!! Crossing my fingers that your busy month goes well x

Anonymous said...

Thanks so much for having your post ready for those of us who are too-early-in-the-morning readers (or too-late-at-night)! Great fun!

Gayle Ballinger said...

I love Indigo! So, someday I think I might be confident enough to try the Indigo Revival quilt. It is absolutely stunning! As I have not made an actual quilt yet.... I am working on it.... I think I will have to start with something less challenging. But I would put it on my dream quilts list, for sure.

Samplings from Spring Creek said...

blues, reds love them both

Kaaren said...

You had me with your indigo blues...ad now reds??? I think I've died and gone to heaven! Now I'll be able to combine both collections and continue to make my favorite red, white and blue quilts!

I'd love to make a Farmer's Wife quilt in red, white and blue. Thanks for the chance to make my dream a reality!

Paula said...

A lovely block, thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the release of your Midwinter Reds and already have a couple of projects in mind. Enjoy Les Mis - I adore it. Book, musical and I'm sure movie (I've to wait on the dvd version to see it myself) are all wonderful.

Julie said...

Wonderful block!! I would love to make your Indigo Revival quilt, just beautiful. Thanks

Jane said...

There are so very many quilts I want to make and got such a late start in life, it makes me crazy some times. One I'd like to do is the double wedding ring. Thanks!

Lauraloves2quilt said...

If I had more time I would make a feathered star quilt . . . two colors . . . red & white or blue & white. Love your fabric line!
Laura L.

gail said...

One can't go wrong with reds and blues --love your fabrics. I have so many quilts on my want to do list, but I can never make up my mind what to make with fabric until I touch and feel it.

Joan and Kevin said...

I would make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt if I had more time. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lynn said...

If I had time I would work on this friendship quilt, if I win I would def. try to tackle a quilt with those honeycombs. Have always loved hexes but have not been brave enough to try!

Diane said...

Well, I really like the honeycomb packet. I think I would make something with that. Your fabrics have always been my favorite. Thank you for the block as well. Diane

Sandy D said...

I would make a Swoon Quilt. I love this block and Have seen it on Blogs I visit.So if I had more time I would make it. My next plan though is to make this Friendship Quilt as soon as I pick the fabrics. I am Getting ideas from seeing the finished blocks.

Siobhán said...

If you like listening to audio books, check out the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcasts by Discovery. They're a lot of fun, too!

I just got my Karen Mowery A Bountiful Life quilt, so will be planning to work on that in the not so distant future. I just need to find my big girl panties to wear while staring at all that applique.

jo tatters said...

If I had more time, I'd hand-piece a farmers wife quilt. It's on my 'to do' list but will I ever get there! :)

goodmoodyogagirl said...

Your post is a hoot, your block is wonderful & fabric is just gorgeous!!
If I had time (quit my job and sew all day time) I would make another queen size log cabin. 'Sew' much fun to make & they are my favorite!
dpackech@yahoo.com

Carole~Wheels on the Warrandyte Bus said...

If I had more time I would like to make: Patchwork of the Crosses; a repro quilt of own design;
a red & white version of a 'Tribute to Mrs Williams' quilt;'A Gardener's Alphabet'; a Storm at Sea quilt with Japanese fabrics; and a Hawaiian style quilt in cheddar & white featuring pineapples - like the one in the Descendants movie. Thanks for the opportunity!

Since I first saw the Granny Square quilt, I have been wanting to make it for my bed. Currently I am working on charity quilts for our local NICU's and trying to finish some UFO's before taking on a new large project. Love your block.

Beth said...

Be more than happy to go on a road trip with you two gals. Do you sing along with the CD's?
Love the new fabric line...bought part and may have to go back for more.

Kathy B. said...

If I had more time to make (finish) a quilt it would be an Ohio Star quilt I started 30+ years ago. It was when I first learned to quilt - the trace a template, mark the quarter inch line, and stitch by hand! I have all of the blocks done, but just haven't taken time to piece the sashing and border together. Thanks for the quilt block pattern - would be ever so happy to perhaps win fabric!

Sharon said...

Wonderful block...Ahh I think I would love to make a blue and white quilt with all of these different blocks...thanks for sharing and all you do for us quilters.

sandi s said...

I want to make a Nine Patch out of both your lines, the blues and the reds. I love them both! Thank you for the chance to win. I listen to books on CDs when I travel also. Thanks for the chance to win!

Lynn - JnL4God said...

I don't know what my Dream Quilt would be but I sure want more time to do all the ones I'm doing. :)
Thanks for the block and the give away.

PatchworkRose said...

If I had time to make one more quilt it would have to be a snails trail. I love the way all the colours move through the quilt dancing and singing. I too listen to talking books but is like my quilting I always seem to have at least 2 books on the go. One in the car and one as I sit and sew. Sometimes there is also one to listen to while I cook. Love them and the library always has a great selection

Maryjo said...

I love your block...and I am in love with the giveaway fabric!I would love to challenge myself to a pineapple quilt..they have always appealed to me.Have a wonderful day:)

Missy Shay said...

I like your block! Those fabrics are gorgeous! Have a great time in Paris! missysaprons@gmail.com
If I had enough time, I would make a basket quilt!

missmarys said...

The indigo line is beautiful. I can't wait to work with it.

Thelma said...

Since you asked for a comment involving time only, not time and skill, I will go with Shakespeare in the Park, by Judy Martin. Love your block, thanks for the opportunity.

Sherry said...

On my "someday" list is a Feathered Star with indigos, a Dear Jane, a Baltimore, and to finish a couple of hooked rugs. Your books and fabric lines keep me inspired and always provide ideas for the next project. Thank you.

JoAnne said...

Wow, if I had more time what quilt would I make? I just attended the Midatlantic Quilt Fest in Hampton, VA last week and I'm completely full of inspiration. There was the greatest quilt hanging there, full of tiny baskets. Hundreds of them. It was all done in blue and cream. I'm thinking that Indigo Crossing would be perfect. I'm loving the peek of the new line. Red is my favorite color!

Bonnie said...

I would love to make a Dear Jane quilt. Indigo Crossing is beautiful and I NEED to make a quilt using that! Thank you for the giveaway

Donna Joy said...

More time to quilt would allow me to make a farmers wife quilt. I also need to finish several quilts, thanks for giveaway and scraps are so exciting.

Jessica Christensen said...

I would work on a quilt from Piece 'O Cake that I have been collecting polka dots for, for a really long time. I also started a flying geese quilt that I would like to finish. Ooh, and I want to make a double wedding ring. Okay. Stop me now. You see where this is going.

Beth said...

What a great giveaway. I am currently working on a Hexie project using some of your fabric. To try to be more focused I made a list of twelve projects to work on this year. So far it is working pretty well. When I need a change of pace, I just pick something else on that list!! If I had more time, I would add a lucky 13 item!

Karen M said...

If I had more time, I would hand quilt all of my quilts AND I would make a Baltimore Album quilt. Unfortunately, neither of those things will happen. Thanks so much for the chance to win your yummy fabric...even scraps would be GREAT!

Denniele said...

If I had time, I would make a postage stamp quilt where the squares finish 1" or so. Thanks for the great giveaways!

Margaret said...

I know exactly what quilt I would make. Well, not exactly. It's in the "thinking about it" stage. My family is having a reunion late this summer, and I will be making a signature quilt for my aunt and uncle (who are well into their 80's). Thanks MODA for the idea!! Now, I have to decide which block. Or maybe various blocks. Then contemplate colors. Oh such decisions.

Martina said...

Oh I would love to make a another flowergarden quilt! Thanks for the lovely block!

Bev said...

My list is so long, but if I weren't making quilts for some occasion or someone else, and just making one for me, it would be a feathered star. Thanks for your generous chance to win some of your yummy fabrics.

Susan Smith said...

MORE TIME......I'd finish the quilts I've got going and try to make a dent in the hundred more I've got planned. I've always wanted to make a blue and cream quilt---would love to win your fabric for that!

Allison said...

If I had the time, I'd quilt all the time! I really want to make a wildflower quilt...well, maybe someday. Thanks so much for the chance to win some of your beautiful fabric! They're lovely.

Kathie Gore said...

I spend time almost every day sewing something. I enjoy the process as much if not more than the finished product! The Indigo line is beautiful!

Anonymous said...

Love your fabrics and would be thrilled to win these!

Bertie said...

Love the blue's, and your block is lovely, thank you!

cherylj said...

More time...I would start and hopefully finish up a quilt for my daughter's big girl bed. I missed that so maybe for Christmas this year?

Sue Bennett said...

I would love to hand piece a Dear Jane quilt top.

Love the new blues and can't wait for the reds to go with them.

KarenH said...

I have been wanting to make a patriotic quilt. I think some of these fabrics would work well.

Wanda said...

Love the honeycombs! Seriously all the fabrics are lovely.

Marca fritzemeier said...

I've been wanting to make a little two-color quilt for my 12" table quilt stand. I'd like to make it look antique. I love the moda friendship blocks too, though, and might make something with them.
Thanks for your inspiring work!

Colleen said...

France...that's a great excuse!!! But for you there is no excuse needed because your posts are always fun! I would love to make ANY quilt that has stars but I really like the Indigo Spinning Stars quilt!

Janet said...

What great prizes! Pick me, pick me! It never occurs to me that I can't finish all the quilts I start, or make all the quilts I want to make ... it's just a matter of when I'll get to them or get them done! I still want to make Maggie Walker's Country Journal - have all the fabric and patterns for it! Or your Indigo Revival. I'll get to them ... eventually :-)

Thanks for the opportunity!

Anonymous said...

I have a long list of quilts I'd like to make, and I seem to add to list faster than I can complete one. A granny square quilt is latest I've added, but the one I've wanted to make for a long time is a Lone Star quilt to hang in my living room. Rose W.

Stacey Larson said...

If I had a magic wand and could do it by March 2nd it would be "Shade Garden Sampler" with the Indigo Crossing that Barbara Brackman had on her blog about a month ago. I had the book bought in 24 hrs. Now trying to find time to get it "started" ugh- another UFO

Nikki said...

If I had all the time I needed I would make a quilt that I like with hexagons many cuts. Cutting easy, piecing takes forever.

Sally K said...

I'd like to make a Farmer's Wife quilt but would be happy with one of my ufos! Love your Indigo line!

45th Parallel Quilter said...

The quilt on my "bucket list" that I would love to move off would be the one from Farmer's Wife ... I read that book like it were a novel! LOL Thanks for the giveaway ... you're one of my most favorite fabric designers. Linda

Sandra said...

I have seen new instructions for the Granny Square Quilt. I have waited a whole year now deciding whether to make this or not. It is now time and I would love to win fabric to make this Granny Quilt - for me. Thank you for taking the time and giving all of your followers a chance to download another free pattern for our Friendship Quilt and for the awesome giveaway.

Michele said...

I have lots of things that I am waiting for time to do; one of them is an Irish chain from Pom Pom de Paris that Lisa Alexander made for a french quilting magazine

Katie said...

with more time I would learn and complete either a honeycomb quilt or the cathedral windows quilt and many more paper piece quilts.

Melanie Morgan said...

Well, I think I've got fabric for about 10 projects I haven't started yet! My next project is going to be a Dresden plate quilt. I'm so excited to try it.

Enjoy your trip to France. I wish I was going!

If I had more time I would catch up on beloved projects waiting for me and start a few new ones that are "fully funded" sitting and waiting to go.....new fabric doesn't hurt the process as it can be used in many places!

martha said...

If I had more time I would make a scrappy trip around the world quilt and finish a wool applique quilt! Love the midwinter reds!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow, I would want to finish my Millennium Quilt. A Charm quilt made up of 2000 2" blocks with no duplicates. I have one 200 piece section finished from just working on it when I need to take a break and do some easy "mindless" sewing. But as it comes together, I realize that I really want to spend more time on it and get it done, so that I can start a Christmas themed Millennium Quilt. I know, I'm a gluten for punishment...LOL. Thanks so much for the block and for a chance to win some quilty treasure. I am so in love with your "Midwinter Reds" collection. Wow!!! Big Hugs...

Karen in Breezy Point said...

If I had more time, I would be making the Reach for the Stars quilt from the October 2008 issue of APQ--love it but I'm kind of intimidated by all the bias edges. I know it's not a "slap-dash" kind of quilt, so when I'm ready to take my time, I plan to tackle it.
Sure wish I was going to any of those Paris locations. I know your trip will be wonderful.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Goodness. That's a lot of DVD's to listen to. If I only had the time, I would love to make a postage stamp quilt or a scrappy trip around the world quilt. Maybe I should just aim for a wall hanging? PS I love your block. Flying Geese are never boring.

Laurel said...

if i had more time, i would make anything in a king size to be for our bed. it would probably have to be a quilt as you go, but i have quilts all over the house in throw size... i would love to tackle a king. but it's daunting!

Love your fabric - your blues can chase anyone's blues away ;-) If I had all the time in the world (and unlimited fabric and seam rippers), I would make one of the sampler quilts - The Farmer's Wife or Dear Jane. It is just not going to happen for me otherwise, but it is nice to dream. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway chances!

Pam said...

With time and patience I would love to make farmers wife ...I love your block!

Helen said...

If I had more time, I would finish the baby quilt for my nephew who is expecting his first baby in mid April.

JennyG said...

If I had the time I would make a giant picnic quilt for my sister who called me the other day to tell me her 5th baby is on the way!? (her oldest is 5 years old). :)

Regina said...

Every time I go to a quilt show I'm amazed at the Baltmore Album quilts. That's my dream quilt. Love all your fabric's , thank for the chance to win some.

I would love to make a feathered star quilt if I had the time to sit and enjoy all the time in the world. Love the Indigo colors!

No movies while driving... lol... I think it would be fun to make a little quilt from those candy cuts! :-)

Have a wonderful time in France!! I'm like another quilter who indicated that she has a list of 34 quilts she would like to make. My list is at least that many if not more....and lots of smaller projects in between . Yes, I need more time in my days!!!!

Thumper said...

I just finished a twin quilt for my 4 yr old granddaughter and now need to start on ones for her twin sisters...if only I had more time. Thanks for the fun block and wonderful giveaways!

Hi Laurie,
I'm dreaming of finishing this wonderful quilt along - all the blocks offer great variety of design. In my mind it will be fabulous as an indigo and cream sampler quilt! Now if only I didn't have to cook, clean, or sleep...
Thanks for the free block and the giveaway too.

If I had more time...or was more organized..or I could make up mind, I'd try a NY Beauty! Just this morning I'm making a list of Red and White quilts that I like, trying to decide which one to make or maybe ALL of them, in my second life. Thanks for the giveaway!

Some day I will make FANCY PLATE on the cover of Fancy to Frugal By Kay Connors and Karen Earlywine. It is a beautiful dresden plate made with 30's repro fabric

Abby said...

You'll love France - I have bought fabric every time I've gone but have not had the courage yet to cut any of it.

I want to do Trip Around the World.

Agnes B. Bullock said...

Would make a Trip Around the World quilt

Rebecca said...

So I already have a list of projects I want to get to, but finding the time is hard. However, if I were dreaming up a new project (which I generally am), I am intrigued by the new Honeycomb precuts. I've never tried hexagons and it's always fun to try something new, right?

llavmc said...

I would be making this friendship quilt right now if I had the time. Instead I am downloading all the block patterns so that when my time frees up I am ready to go!

Bev said...

In those clear reds and blues, I would love to do a sailboat block quilt - for little boys or big ones!

Laura said...

Frist I am finishing LINCOLN quilt from the Moda Cruise in January.
Oh what fun that was. I love creams and blues and reds. I got to get busy!

I would like to just a make a quilt for me! Seems all I get done is quilts that are gifts or samples for the shop I work at! Got my eye on a simple blue batik Tradewinds....totally out of my box!

Patty V said...

I have a very long list of ufo's or to do projects, I'm some where around a hundred projects......but I'm just chipping away at the list when I have time.

Anonymous said...

I love books on CD. We always have one in when we travel. Problem is if we don't finish on the trip, whoever drives the car next gets ahead in the story! I would like to make a red and white quilt. I have never tried a two color quilt.

Vicky P said...

What a fun block. Thanks for sharing.

Chris S said...

I would make a quilt from the many patterns on my interest!

Melissa said...

If I had more time I would make another Swoon quilt, but King size!

Lyn said...

I would love to make a friendship quilt. I think they are so wonderful to have. I really think I will try to make time after seeing all these wonderful blocks on this hop. Thanks for such a great giveaway. and for being part of the hop!

Julia said...

If there were more hours in the day, and more days in the week, and more weeks in the...(you get the picture), I'd make the Farmer's Wife Quilt!

Anonymous said...

I would start the Wool Crazy Quilt.Jennie K.

Denise said...

Oh...if only I had the time to quilt as I wish. I would make Ellen's Sewing Basket. Wow. And Paris? Well, Tres Magnifique! Thank you for sharing so much.

Anita said...

I have several quilts I'd like to sew. A whole list of them actually including two BOMs from the FQS. I just bought the "Modern Quilts From The Blogging Universe" book too. The one I really want to get done next is a Swoon quilt though.

MotherTheresa...no, not the saint said...

I would make 3 quilts if I had the time, one for each of my daughters. I just had my ninth child and time is scarce for now, but that is a fleeting problem. I have been making smaller projects for now. Good work...thanks for sharing! teamensign@msn.com

mamamousie said...

I would finish one of the two (!) hand-pieced hexagons I have going right now, and then I would hand-piece a Farmer's Wife. And then . . . well, you get the idea! Laurie, I met you at Black Swamp Quilts in the Toledo, OH area about 5-6 years ago and you signed my Modern Primitive Quilts book--you were so nice and approachable for a newbie. Thank you for the encouragement.

trudy said...

I would like to make blue and white quilt when time permits. Thank you for the block pattern.

Skootchover said...

I want to start a Farmer's Wife quilt. Your give away would help me start!

mascanlon said...

My list is so long! But the sampler of The Farmers Wife is edging its way up the list. And when ever I need to challenge myself a little I look to your patterns or Carrie Nelson's, Love Indigo Crossing I always go for blue!

Rilene said...

I would love to listen to `Les Misérables' in the car! How many trips would it take? If I had more time, I'd make a big warm Christmas-themed quilt with a flannel back.

debie b said...

I would make a quilt for my new nephew who is due in April, using yor new indigo fabrics! Thank you for yhe chance to win!

Jill said...

I would make all of Joanna Figuera's patterns! I just love her patterns & fabric...Dear Jane is also on the list.

Kathy said...

Your Indigo Crossings is beautiful. I would like to do a Tag a Long by Carrie Nelson. Hope I'm lucky...

Strlady said...

Les Mis? Long? Nah! LOL! I watched the movie for a second time this weekend and I can proudly say I cried just a little this time. I'm sure after the third or fourth time, it will be a dry viewing.
My To be Made list is so long i would have to live two lifetimes to get to them. I just picked up Ellen's Sewing Basket and Brr Park to add to my collection. I'm looking forward to these.

Christina Barritt said...

I have a beautiful blue & white antique 9-patch quilt that's quite fragile. I'd love to make a reproduction of that quilt. It's a simple pattern, but so elegant and then I can better preserve my antique but still enjoy the sentiment behind it.

Annika Eggers said...

I would so much thing, but I will start with Moda Friendship Quilt
