Hello! I'm at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the fantastic work!

Barbara Maietta

You have outdone yourself with this wonderful book!! I love them all but I think I would first make the Milky Way one. I want to see it in Batiks.

Cecilia Young

I really like Milky Way. I would use different shades of blue for the background and white for the stars. I like all of the patterns so far and would like to make all of them. Thank you for the giveaway.


The possibilities for the MILKY WAY pattern are endless! This is a terrific pattern.
I just found your website and LOVE it!
Thank you for the giveaway.


Milky Way would look great in brights as well. It's on my to do list already.

Now that I have seen this post, i would definitely buy the book. i love milky way pattern and would use fall colors for sure.


Awesome, awesome, awesome. I can just picture the Criss Cross Applesauce quilt on our bed, love them all.

Love Strippers on Wheels, especially your border treatment. As I'm rather new to quilting, Milky Way really appeals to me. It doesn't look like the same pattern with your two different color choices.


Rocky Road--mmmmm!

Mary Durham

It's really hard to pick a favorite - they are all wonderful quilts. The CrissCross Applesauce may be my favorite just because of the name!

Bobbie BentNeedle

Milky Way - because the fabrics I'd use would be autumn prints that I collected on a trip to Maine, where we saw the Milky Way in a whole "different light" than we see it down here in Texas!


I like milky way, it would be a fun quilt for my boy, especially if I put a Buzz Lightyear patch on there somewhere to find!

Criss cross applesauce...simply because of the name :)

I really like the Strippers on Wheels quilt. I think I'd try for blues/browns/tans. Really love the book previews!

The Strippers on Wheels quilt is very sweet. I saw a sample at Quilted Treasures last weekend and fell in love. Thank you for sharing the pictures from your new book on your blog. I am really looking forward to having my own copy.

Strippers on wheels would make a great retreat quilt, it looks super easy and who doesn't want to sew with precut strips!!!
This book is another winner on my list and I can't wait to get one. Win one or buy one I gotta have one.


Milky Way is wonderful! I love all of these - such perfect uses for Honey Buns!


Congrats on the new book! I really like The Stripper on Wheels. My youngest son has hinted for a quilt, perhaps he will get one soon.


Love, Love, LOVE, Milky Way. What a fun pattern. I can totally see using all my Christmas scraps for it. When does the book come out?


I like the criss Cross Applesauce pattern. It looks easy enough that I could make it into a queen size for my bed. Rocky road would be my second choice. That one would look great with 1930's fabrics.


I love your quilts, especially the Milky Way quilt! I love the strip quilts and just finished an 18 store shop hop where at each shop we collected two strips! Count me in, I would love to win and put those strips to good use--I have 36 just waiting!


Hi from Spain. I think Milky Way pattern looks great and "unique" maybe in bluish colors. But also Criss Cross Aplesauce sounds delicious maybe in some harvest colors (like pumpkin,greens,browns,etc)


Once them all...but my favorite today is the Strippers on Wheels! I just love the whimsical look of it and think it would be great in fun, modern fabrics as well as more traditional florals!


They look wonderful! See you at market!


All the quilts are stunning! I want to make each and everyone of them lol

Melissa C

Looks like a great book. Love Milky Way and I can see it in Red, White, and Blue.


I love the Strippers on wheels and the Milky Way quilts. My favorite colors are anything bright.


Great book! I like Milky Way...What a great quilt to use up some of your fabric stash! Can't wait to see the book in a quilt shop near me...unless I get lucky and win one first.

Amy Craig

Too Cute! I love the colors and pattern for the Strippers on Wheels. Look forward to seeing the book.


Nice work!! These are all beautiful patterns! I really like Milky Way - I think I would do it in dark reds, blues and yellows. I really like Criss Cross Applesauce and Rocky Road though too! I would love,love,love to win this book. And if not, Amazon here I come!


Gudrun - Love seeing inside the book for more great looking quilts. Now I really am having a tough time trying to decide which quilt I like the best! The Rock Road sure does look like a lot of fun and would look great on a college dorm bed! Thanks again.


Rocky Road is aptly named and the colors are magnificent! This would be a perfect quilt for my husband as he just asked me to make him one - which about floored me! LOL


I love Milky Way and Rocky Road...maybe I am craving ice cream? LOL

Mary on Lake Pulaski

Great new book of patterns Gudrun! I would love to make Milky Way out of Rosalie Quinlan's new line that is called Grandmother's Flower Garden.
Strippers on Wheels would be great out of the Eva line.

I LOVE Milky Way! I'd like to see it in red, white, and black!
