  12. I love that I could get a project done before I get tired of making the blocks! :) I tend to get bored making the same block over and over, so since these are bigger blocks, it wouldn't take as many!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my gosh - this is the book for me! I have lots of fabric and not a lot of time for cutting and sewing. I love the idea that I can actually make a beautiful quilt using big bold blocks. Thanks so much for this book!

    ReplyDelete
  32. There is a lot to love about Quilt Big (and I LOVE the colors you slelected for your threads!!). But I think my lost favorite thing is that it allows me the opportunity to get creative with some of my large and extra large patterned fabrics that I have been stashing away for far too long because I couldn’t bare cutting them up. These larger quilt patterns will finally allow for my beautiful large print fabrics to shine!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love big blocks I can finish quickly particularly whilst I'm off sick from work and can't cope with fiddly bits.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love that you can make a great looking project in a short amount of time. Great concept for a book!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love big blocks. Less cutting, less sewing, big impact!

    ReplyDelete
  36. 2 things: it shows off medium to big prints without distorting the print and sometimes we just need to make an awesome quilt , like now and be done like now

    sharongalli@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  37. The large blocks are a great way to show some feature fabrics that you love.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I want to try the home treasure quilt and I will definitely try the string block in a quilt. I have never made a large block quilt. The one I do first will depend on the fabric I find. I can't wait to look at some large print fabrics for inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like the mosaic quilt that Lauren made and showed on her Molly and Mama blog. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  47. I love the idea of making "bigger blocks for faster finishes"! Any of the quilts in the book would be a great accomplishment if indeed it does lead to a finished quilt in less time! Thank you, Susan

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the big blocks for a couple of reasons...first, I will finish the quilt more quickly so I can get to the quilting part (my favorite part) and second, there is a lovely amount of space for modern quilting!! I can also use some of my hoarded fabric because the larger pieces will show off the fabric so well!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Fast and easy sounds good to me. Also bigger blocks means fabric with larger prints can be used.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Quilting Big is great for when you need a handmade quilt to snuggle under and want to get it done fairly quickly. Plus, big blocks can showcase some larger motifs from the fabric instead of cutting it down. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like the Big Blocks 'cause it means that I might actually get a quilt finished quickly!! And they're always good for larger prints. Thanks so much for the chance to win :)

  53. I’d like to start by making the Indian Star quilt from your book.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have this book and I love it! Super excited to make something from it. I have so little time to spend quilting. If I can finish something quickly and have it still be beautiful that would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The book looks great! I'd LOVE to make the Simplex Star quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Comgrats on the book. I like the idea of having projects that I can finish in record time. I don't usually do fast projects and it's nice to have some in my wheelhouse. Thanks for putting new ideas into my old head. Susan

  68. I love the bold look of the big blocks! Just because the blocks are big doesn't mean they are boring!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm such a lover of big blocks! I'm always looking for ways to speed up quilt making, and big blocks is a fantastic way to do that!

    ReplyDelete
  70. What I love about Quilt Big is the variety of designs to show off my large-patterned fabrics. Often, the beauty of those fabrics is lost when cut into smaller pieces. Big blocks are much easier to stitch and move so quickly...just perfect for me! duchick at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  71. What beautiful colours! Would love to make a quilt with big blocks for a quick finish! And also to see what your methods are for residing blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Big print fabrics that you don't want to cut too small will be great for this

    ReplyDelete
  85. Your thread colors are so bright and clear-so springy! Loved your book as soon as I saw it and it just came this week. I have a layer recently purchased at a quilt show-so I will start with The Half Square Triangles Quilt and then definitely Churn Dash. So much inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Always looking for something new to teach and this would fit the bill. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  87. I like be big block quilt books - I look forward to seeing this one! You finish a quilt quickly, lots of negative space to highlight some beautiful machine quilting as well as a few spectacular fabrics many of which we have today. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I am so impressed by Peta Peace's log cabin quilt. I want to start with that one but I am sure I will end up making them all.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I am super excited to make a quilt with larger pieces, this would be a new endeavor for me, but I know I'll be hooked once I start. The Quilt Big creations that I have seen on social media so far have been astounding!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I like that just a few larger blocks with larger pieces allows me to have a wall hanging or a quilt!! I also like the fact that I can finish it up quickly (and as I age, that is becoming much more important!).

    ReplyDelete
  91. I have a few beautiful pieces of fabric that are large scale prints. A quilt composed of bigger pieces would be a perfect way to highlight these great prints. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Quilts with a million little pieces are beautiful, but not something I'm interested in taking the time to make. Quilt Big patterns are definitely more my style.

    ReplyDelete
  93. My birthday is in March and your book is on my wish list! I especially like the large churn dash block I've seen in some of the pictures.
    tstanulis@verizon.net

    ReplyDelete
