  1. I am a follower. How do you you put the scrap blocks together? Do you rotate every other one 180 degrees?

    1. I think you could play around with a number of layouts. Its up to you!

  2. I am a follower, I really like this block and can see many of my scraps being used and maybe some pretty selvedge trimmings,I keep every scrap from every project.

  3. I am a follower. My big resolution is to use as much of my stash as possible including scraps, crumbs and all the precuts I have stacked up! I also want to put up several tutorials this year. Thanks for sharing this block!

  4. I am a follower. My biggest resolution is to complete quilt tops for my two grands. I also want to make a ton of potholders for next christmas -- although I already gave the first one away, lol.

  5. I`m a follower and my resolutio is to make several Dear Jane blocks and quilting any of my quilting top.Thanks!

  6. I am a follower and that is sure a nice give away.

  7. I'm a follower via GFC. My resolution this year is to make a Twister quilt.

  8. Hi!!! I am a follower!!! Great give away!!! I am a new quilter and I just need to practice practice practise!!! Thanks for the fun!!!

  9. Hello Dhia! I need to get in touch with you about the Traveling Stash boxes. I can't locate your email address. Please contact me. Thanks! :) (sorry to post here about this)

  10. While I'm here I might as well enter to win. :) I'm a new follower of yours. This year I would like to start on my Christmas gifts way ahead of time so I don't have that end of the year push. Have a Nice Day! :)

  11. I am a happy follower and my resolutions are to finish at least 2 projects before I start on something new.

  12. My quilting resolutions this year??? Try to finish all the quilt"fixin's " that have been left to me by my mom, and a couple of grandma's. Wish me luck. oh, and yes I am a follower.

  13. Yay I am a follower!!! My resolution is to finish one WiP before starting anpther new project (or work on a UFO then reward myself with day dreaming about new projects). I have 10 quilts from 2012 started so I need to get them finished!!

  14. I guess my resolution would have to be that I don't 'over commit' to do too many sewing/quilting projects! I'm a follower and must say your new sewing machine and sewing room are awesome. And SCORE on all the fabric you just bought, lol!

  15. I follow through email, hope that counts! :)
    My resolution for the coming year is to try some quilts that are a challenge to me, designs like curves for one. What is the design of that spectacular piece on your design wall? It's gorgeous and the colours are amazing :)

    1. I was inspired by the Ogee QAL. I did not buy the offical pattern (I made my own cause im cheap). It is a take on drunkards path. Lots of curved seems (yuck yuck yuck). More info can be found here or you can google Ogee or Curlicue


  16. Hope this doesn't double post(went to publish & I got an error) I'm a follower. My resolution is to quilt more and to increase my stash. I just returned to quilting after 25+ years away and am working on getting a stash. Have little problem because we retired to Mexico and they don't have the quality cotton fabrics so I have to order internationally and shipping eats up almost half of my quilty budget. Thank you for the chance to win your giveaway.

  17. I am a follower (by email).
    My resolution is to learn to FMQ this year. (signed up for a class...hope it goes well)

  18. I love the idea of the Stacks & Stacks block. What a great way to use those pesky leftovers :)

    I would adore winning the candy. I am a follower. This year my resolution is to make a 'big' quilt. Big enough for my king size bed. I think it is time to be brave and move beyond placemats and lap quilts.


  19. Lovely block! Hopefully I can get it put together today and added to the flickr group :)
