  1. While all beautiful, if you are going to make me choose, I had a hard time deciding between the 4th Grade Quilt and the 8th Grade Quilt. I am going to say the 8th Grade, it makes me feel like I could curl up in my room at grandmas house.

  2. My favorite is by far the 9th Grade quilt! It catches my eye everytime i see it, and i have a new stack of Farmhouse fat eighths just waiting for it πŸ™‚

  3. Each quilt is so different and creative! My pick for favorite is the 6th grade quilt. I used to teach 6th grade, so I'm not too surprised it caught my eye! Very modern looking!

  4. I like quite a few of them, but the 12th grade is my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of this fun book!

  5. It's hard to choose because they are all so wonderful. But since you said I must choose then I like Grade 11 the best.

  6. This book is amazing- my son is a math major in college. I have been collecting various math related fabrics and there are quite a few patterns that would work great. I've been trying to figure out what pattern and one of these would be awesome.

  7. Hard to choose from so many lovely patterns……but I love the stars in the 7th Grade quilt pattern especially. Love it with the bright Hi-De-Ho Fabric too!!

  8. I think I will probably wind up making most of the quilts in this book! But my favorite is 9th grade! I love the pattern lay out and the fabric used is beautiful!

  9. Ok making me choose a favorite is just so hard!! Ok, ok the 6th grade, no the fourth grade, no wait—12th grade— Can't I just have them all as my favorite! This book must find its way into my library soon. Thank you for publishing a great book, and having a great giveaway. vkh6210 at gmail dot com

  10. I have to say that I truly like them all. But love 11, 1st, 2nd and 4th are my favorites. Thank you for putting this together. Now Iam hoping all of you have it to sell. Thank you for sharing. Love all the blogs here

  11. While it may not have been my favorite time of life, I like the 7th grade quilt the best. Love stars and the settings show off the fabric!

  12. I simply could not wait for a give-a-way so I went to my LQS and purchased it yesterday!!! But if I should win a copy I will donate it to our quilt guild library.

  13. Absolutely the 5th grade design is my favorite! Not too simple but not so difficult! However, I'd like to try them all, especially if I can win a book!

  14. I really like all twelve designs, but especially third, fifth and seventh grade. Since I have been wanting to do a churn dash quilt I will go with third grade as the favorite. Love all the happy colors in these quilts and if I don't win I guess I will have to buy this book! Thanks for the chance.

  15. They are all so pretty. I think the 12th grade design offers an opportunity for some really interesting quilting…so it's my favorite.

  16. This is a wonderful book! I wish they taught more home economics in classes today. Quilting would be my choice!

    I love the 7th grade one. Stars are my favorite. πŸ™‚

  17. Beautiful quilts. It was very hard to choose just one as a favourite. After considerable contemplation, it has to be the 6th Grade quilt. Thanks for sharing and offering a giveaway.

  18. All of the quilts are ones I could see myself making so it is hard to pick a favorite but since I am such a fan of stars I would probably make the 7th grade quilt first.

  19. It is really hard to pick just one favorite because I love them all. I will pick the 8th grade quilt to be my favorite. Thank you for the chance to win!!

  20. I can't pick just one – I love all the color and pattern! I will start with 3rd grade, and 5th grade. But I really like them all!

  21. I really love the 10th grade quilt, but probably need to start with the first grade version. πŸ™‚

  22. I like the 11th and 7th Grade quilts the most. Thanks for the chance to win! bwwedprep(at)yahoo(dot)com

  23. Hmm hard to pick just one. But I do think 2nd grade is awful cute! It looks like such a fun book with lots of doable quilts.

  24. Love them all. I love sewing with precuts. It's a tie between 8th and 9th grade for me. I would probably make those first, but they are all great πŸ™‚

  25. The 10th grade quilt calls to me! That's my favorite. The 12th grade quilt is a close runner up!

  26. Hard to choose a favorite but eighth grade right now! This is a very clever book and all the grades are great. Barb and Mary have outdone themselves!

  27. I think I like them all. 7th grade will probably be the first one I make but that is me today, tomorrow I will change my mind. Great book.

  28. So many great quilts. But my favorite is probably Grade 3. Love that churn dash block.

  29. The 11th Grade quilt is maybe my favourite. The all look super. Would love to win the book and try out some of the patterns

  30. I like all of the quilts and was just at Sherrie's site. Her quilt turned out really good. I am going to a workshop in October at My Girlfiends Quilt Store in Logan with those ladies and I can hardly wait.

  31. Eleventh grade is my favorite!
    Thank you for offering chances to win this fun book of quilt patterns.
