  15. I have been quilting for one month! I have a 15 month old daughter and want to be able to make things for her. I decided to learn to sew by making a quilt. It has been such a fulfilling process. I already have a few more that I want to do!

  17. Oh my, I've been quilting for a long time. Much longer than I want to admit. I started young. Suffice it to say, that I started quilting before Internet.

  18. I've been quilting since around 2001. I've been playing with fabric a lot longer--my mom as a beautiful seamstress and I used to make doll clothes for my Barbies with her scraps and a pair of scissors. (Does anyone else remember three-armhole-dresses?)

  19. Such a cute block and love your choice of fabrics. I've been sewing since I was little. I discovered quilting through a co-worker more than 20 years ago. I have gotten more serious with quilting in the past five years.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.
