  1. I don't have a favorite because I don't have them. But I've been really wanting the Beginners Guide to Free Motion Quilting and Sweet Celebrations.

  2. My current favorite is Rayna Gillman's "Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts." Not only is it eye-candy, she addresses the need to sometimes just sit down and sew mindlessly, rather than feeling like you have to make a masterpiece every time you enter your sewing room. Definitely takes the pressure off. I'm doing to try to do more of that this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. (oh — I don't have any of the ones listed above so I don't know which of those would be my favorite. I'd love to see the Beginner's Guide, though)

  4. I haven't really quilted before and I don't have any quilting books, so I don't have a favorite yet. I'm really wanting to make a cathedral quilt this year so maybe I'll catch the quilting bug.

  5. What a wonderful give-away! So many great books. I would love the stitching book, but would be happy with any! Thanks so much.

  6. My favorite quilt book is Tradition With a Twist by Blanche Young and Dalene Young Stone. Don't have it yet, but Skip the Borders looks really good too.

  7. A recent favorite of mine is the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book. I love seeing the stories that go with each block… even though I haven't made any of the blocks yet!

  8. My favorite is The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman, I am a relative newbie and this book taught me how to quilt.

  9. I don't really have a specific favorite quilt book, however, my favorite type of quilt book are books that help to build technique . Right now I'm trying to perfect my machine quilting skills.

  20. The book that I keep going back to is Fast Quilts from Fat Quarters by Barbara Chainey. I love the cutting directions and all the block diagrams.

  95. I would be interested in Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, because I am just starting to include a lot more patterns to my quilts. I believe that the "quilting" is just as important as the pattern, and I love the feel of a piece that has a lot of stitiching. It also adds texture to the project. Look at the Amish quilts. They're pieces are limited on the color, but amazing on the stitching.

I have had it for over 15 years and I still can say that about it. -Jen Jeffery
    jenmjeffery@yahoo.com

  139. Choose just one? Sorry, it's a toss up between Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns (which I guess can be eliminated because we now have Block Base") and Jinny Beyers Blocks and Borders (because Barbara and Jinny enabled me to become a quilter "way back when."

  145. I don't own too many quilting books yet, but my FAVORITE so far is Simply Fat Quarters! The patters all totally appeal to me, they aren't too terribly complicated and each one is shown in several sizes. I do love this book!

  146. I love all quilting books but I would say right now my fave is Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler…very cool! Thanks for the giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

  147. I'm very new to quilting and because there is so much information on the Internet I've never even looked at a quilting book!! It would be great for me though, to learn new techniques and styles. Thanks!!

  148. Such a great give away. Thank you!
    I have always enjoyed the Quiltmaker's Gift series – the story book and the quilt pattern books.

  149. I'm new to quilting so have just started building up my library but my favourite so far is camille roskelley's simplify and my favourite fabric designer is aneela hoey!

  150. I have many favourites, but lately it has been Some kind of Wonderful by Anni Downs. Just love to browse through it, over and over again.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  151. What a fabulous collection of books! It would be wonderful to win one. My favorite quilting book is one I have had for a long time called Classic Patchwork and Quilting by Margit Echols.

  152. This is a terrible thing for a quilter to admit, but I don't own any quilting books! I think, though, that if I had to pick a favorite on my wish list it would have to be "Geared for Guys". Thanks for the chance to win!

  153. Wow! Thank you so much for the giveaway!
    My favourite quilting book is Pumpkins & spice, by Terri Degenkolb (Whimsicals)

    Best wishes,
    Tatyana

  154. I'm usually drawn to Kim Diehl, Kansas Troubles & Renee Nannerman; but, I can't stop looking at & falling into quilt envy with Julie Hermans latest "Toes in The Sand" BOM. Ummm,good bye budget, and hello JayBird design ๐Ÿ™‚

  155. I don't really have a quilting book. I have Amy Butler's style stitches and a quilting block book but no quilting book. I have wanted to try out Modern Patchwork but that has yet to come ๐Ÿ™‚

  156. Like many comments before this one, I also have a hard time picking just one book as my favorite. But, I'll follow the "rules" and select one I am currently using a pattern from – At Home With Country Quilts by Cheryl Wall. Thanks for the chance to win some new books!

  157. What a great givaway! My favorite book is Malka Dubrawsky's Fresh Quilting – great projects and overall a beautiful book ๐Ÿ™‚

  158. I absolutely love "Baltimore Beauties and Beyond" by Elly Sienkiewicz, I have most of her books and love to applique. So I certainly would love some new books to expand my quilting knowledge.

  159. Wow, what a great giveaway. Quilters Complete Guide, by Porter and Fons was my first quilting book, and it's still a favorite. I would love new books, they all look great.

  160. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I'm not sure if this is open internationally, hope so
    I don't have a favorite book, but have been looking at some of them in the web, and "The Spirit of Sacagawea" looks like a good one to have
    thanks for the chance

  161. I would love Sweet Celebrations by Moda Bakeshop Chefs. I love to buy layer cakes and jelly rolls so I'd love some new patterns.

  162. I love books. I collect quilting books like many who collect cookbooks. I love the ones that tell a story, give a background for the inspiration of a design. I'm 57, but adore anything with the new modern quilting theme. I also love interior design so "Where Women Create" would be a great pick. Thank you for divulging your "confession". You're very generous.

  163. I have Pam & Nicky Lintott's More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll & Charm Quilts. I found it at at yard sale! Am using it right now. So many titles, I would love to live in your house!!!!

  164. The quilt book that I use the most is The Quilter's Catalog by Meg Cox. Lots of wonderful articles, but her section on binding a quilt has very clear diagrams of making a mitred join of the two ends once you've sewn the binding all around. Thanks for the great giveaway – I love quilt books.

  165. My favorite quilting book (at the moment) is Civil Was Sampler by Barbara Brackman. I'm doing the blocks in a more modern fashion and loving how they're turning out!
    Thanks for the fab giveaway!

  166. I have a few good quilt books but my current favorites are the Simple Series by Kim Diehl. I have them all and love them. Have been wanting to get Sweet Celebrations though. Thanks for a chance to win.

  167. My favourite book at the moment is one I was given for Christmas – it is Shape Workshop for Quilters – it has so many blocks and some lovely patterns.

  168. Oh wow! Just one! I guess right now, I recently purchased Barbara Brackmans Civil War sampler and I really like that. Honestly I think my first life was in that time span because I really seem to be drawn to quilts in that area! Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway.

  169. thank you so much for your giveaway, I'd say my favorite is Sweet 'n Sassy Templates' Diamond Quilts only because I have a thing with diamonds ^_^ and Sweet Celebrations hits my interest.
    I am italian and if this is not international, my cousin will keep the books for me with pleasure!

  170. I am very new to quilting. As of yet I haven't acquired any quilting books. I have madea few smaller wall hangings and baby quilts. Bu I think I woud really love the Beginers Guide To Free Motion Quilting book. Or the Moda Bakeshop book , But to be quiet honest I probably could benefit from most any of them.

    Marie Claude

  172. I love books and have many favorites but the latest (and for the time favorite) is Stunning Angleplay Quilts

  173. I love the MODA "cookbooks" and the homestyle quilts book – quilts and recipes together – what's better than that! I also love Edyta Sitar's books!

  174. What a treat it would be to win these books! I don't have "With Fabric and Thread Quilt Book" by
    John Wiley & Sons, Joanna Figueroa but at this time its my favorite and on my list to get.

  175. I have a lot of books and love many of them so this was a hard question. One of the first to come to mind is Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket books. They are great and I'm excited that she is coming out with a third one.

  180. My favorite quilt book of all time is Liberated String Quilts by Gwen Marston. I love all of her liberated books, but that one is number one with me! Thanks for the chance to win!

  181. My heart's desire would be SOLIDS, STRIPES, CIRCLES AND SQUARES! I'm just beginning to work with solids or fabrics that read as solid, and I'm discovering elegance through simplicity in rich colors and well-constructed linear designs.

  182. I am just getting ready to try quilting out so I don't have any books, but I've been eyeing Julie Hermans Skip the Borders for some time. Good luck to everyone!

  183. Thanks for the giveaway. All would be wonderful but I do have the books in the 2nd selection, so maybe not that one. Thank you

  184. My current favorite is Denyse Schmidt "Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration". Just love the quilt designs and patterns in it! Thanks so much!

  185. I'm really enjoying Miss Rosie's books by Carrie Nelson. Out of the new books shown, I have been wanting to get Sweet Celebrations for awhile now. Thanks for the opportunity to win a bundle of great books by some great quilters!

  186. My current favorite that I received for Christmas is Simply Fat Quarters—I'm making myself finish up some UFO's so that I can start Carousel!

  187. I like so many different books but Quilts Made Modern is a good one. Thanks for the chance to win and add to my library.
    Shawn

  188. My favorite quilts books are from Need'l Love. They have such a range of projects that really appeals to me. I've been purchasing them for many, many years! Be especially blessed…

  189. I LOVE all books and currently quilt books. I would have to pick Miss Rosie's quilt collection book as my favorite! Your bundles look scrumptious and it would be awesome to win one for a cold winter's day:) Thanks for the chance.

  190. I love the quilt artist Kim Diehl, so I really enjoy any book she has written, but I would have to pick "Simple Blessings" as my favorite.
    I have been wanting to add the new Moda Bakeshop Sweet Blessings book to my library also. MBS is one of my special places to gather wonderful patterns and ideas.
    Thanks!
    Nettie

  191. I have been wanting Julie Hermans book "Skip the Boarders" but just haven't broke down to buy it. Would love any of the books your giving away.

  192. well, "skip the borders" sounds like my kinda book.. the only one i have is "where women create"and i love that!!! gets me in the mood to tidy up and get going!!

  193. I have soooooo many favorite books that it is way to hard to pick one!
    What a lovely gift these books will make for the lucky winners.
    Thank You!
    Judy

  194. My favorite is The Modern Quilt Workshop.It's detailed and concise with full size templates, and I love the graphic qualities of modern quilt designs.

  195. I'm wanting to delve into modern quilts this year and would love anything pertaining to that like Diamond Modern Patchwork!
    Thank yioiu so very much for the chance to win one of these bundles.
    My favourite for the holiday season is my copy of Linda DeBono's Merry and Bright.

  196. Wow what a great opportunity, thanks! But I have to be honest: I love learning so my favorite book would be the one I am working with at the time. The way I work it is if I have learned something valuable from each book I have then I keep it for 6 months to make sure I have it down right and then it goes to my library if it is something that someone else would like to learn then after 6 months I will loan it to that person. For all other books that I really did not get the concept or like what I did I will pass it onto our Kids group that are learning to quilt and they get to add it to their library. So it is a win win for more than just me. Believe it or not I have been doing this for years and I have never had a book not come back to me that I have loaned out. Right now I am into FMQ and would love to win any of those books. Have a great day

  197. I love Simplify by Camille Roskelley. I have just started to learn about quilting, and the Vintage Modern fabric line was what first inspired me.

  198. I don't have any particular favorites right now but I see a couple in those groups that are on my to get list…. sweet celebrations and the no borders!

  199. It is hard to choose, but I think I would have to say Kim Brackett's Scrap Basket Sensations. So many wonderful patterns there. Thanks for the chance to win.

  200. Hola, soy de Argentina, no sรฉ si puedo participar. tengo muchos libros favoritos pero el que mรกs me gusta es "The Quilter's album of Patchwork Patterns" de Jinny Beyer. En fin, si no participo o no gano, me gusta mucho la pรกgina, y estoy suscripta a todas las publicaciones. Les envรญo un cordial saludo desde Argentina. Cariรฑos. Eva

  201. What a great contest. Quilt books are so much fun to read and gain knowledge and inspiration! As the librarian for our quilt guild I am always on the outlook for books that will appeal to multi levels of quilting expertise. Any of these would be fabulous to have on our shelves. Probably my personal favourite is "Fat Quarter Quilts" and subsequent editions. The versatility of small pieces of fabric for fun, quick projects keeps me intrigued.

  202. There are many I love, but I have to say Skip the Borders has made a huge impact in my quilting life. I love quilts without borders and love making them! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  203. I would like Sweet Celebrations and Skip the Borders the best but I would like the machine quilting books as well. Thank you for this great giveaway!

  204. I don't have a favorite book since I am just beginning to quilt and build a library. Any of the titles you showed would be a great start. Thank you for your generosity.

  205. Material Obsession! Just looking at the cover makes me want to go sew! What a great giveaway and standing ovation to all creative designers out there who put these lovely books together! ๐Ÿ™‚

  206. I don't own any of these — yet — but "Skip The Borders" has been tempting me since it came out. Borders are such a chore to me!

  207. I looked at my collection of books and the one that resulted in the MOST quilts for me is Ami Simms Picture Play Quilts. I was a nut for kids and novelty prints for SOOOO many years. I'd like to think I've grown up, but it was sure nice pulling that book out and paging through it just now — like visiting an old friend.

  208. most favorite I own now…Angela Waters FMQ book because of it's wonderful content, clear instructions & design. Thank you for letting me be a psrt of your giveaway.

  209. My favorite is Moda Bake Shop's Fresh Fabric Treats……..I've made several things from it. I love the variety of projects!!

  210. I have a number of them I really like but one I have used lately is "The Border Workbook" by Janet Kime. I also check out a lot of books from the library and I like Free-Motion Quilting Made Easy by Eva Larkin. I LOVE books!

  211. My current favourite is Elizabeth Hartman's Modern Patchwork but I have a few of your giveaway books in my Amazon wish list, especially Aneela Hoey's book and the moda Bakeshopmbook.

  212. My all time favorite book would be anything from Blackbird Designs. I also have most of the Minick and Simpson books and would love to win a copy of their latest! Thanks for the chance!

  213. My fav is "Quilter's Mix and Match Blocks" over 200 block patterns (50 patterns,each with 4 different color schemes) I have made many, but would sure like to branch out and learn different techniques. Everyone you have here sounds great!

  214. I don't have any quilting books, so I don't have a favorite. Being pretty new to quilting, a great book would really help me. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  215. Oh Please, Please don't SKIP over me for the winner of the quilt book "Skip the Borders" by Julie Herman! I can't wait to try her technique!

  216. I love all of the moda booksthat give me ideas on how to use jelly rolls and layer cakes!!!

  217. I would love the book Aneela Hoey's Little Stitches, or Natalia Bonner's Beginner's Guide to Free Motion Quilting.However any of the books would be awesome!!!!

  218. Wow – so many great books! I don't own any quilting books now, but I'd lve to try some. Homestyle Quilts: Simple Patterns and Savory Recipes sounds very nice. Thanks!

  219. There are so many, Sweet Celebrations is definitely ine of my favorites as is Sunday Morning Quilts, love all f the ideas for the huge pile of scraps I have!
