WEEK 13: It’s a Giveaway

Click through for details!

Well, we made it to the end of the quilt-along! This is officially week 13 and I’m thoroughly impressed by how many of you have not only finished your quilt tops but basted and quilted them as well! And for those of you still making blocks or assembling the top, we are all still here cheering you on. Those instructions will remain up on the blog permanently and in a few weeks we will have a free PDF pattern download to print and keep with your blocks if you need to take a break.

This final week means it’s time to give away some prizes. We are going to have three categories for entry:

1. Link to a photo of your finished quilt top (or quilt!) in the comments

2. Tell us what you’d like to see for our 2018 quilt along

3. Submit a project idea to the Moda Bake Shop {link here}. Be sure to mention the giveaway in your submission.

For all three options, make sure you leave a comment here with your full name and correct email address so we can contact you if you are the winner. The giveaway is open until midnight CST on November 18, 2017.

Thanks to everyone who sewed along and those that watched and cheered us on!

  1. Erica says:

    In 2018 I’d like to see smaller projects – the last quilt was beautiful but I just don’t have the time.

  2. How about a series of miniature quilts? I have a blank wall that needs some variety and color.

  3. Marge Dominic says:

    I did not complete or even start but I have saved each weeks instructions with the intention of completing it before the year is over. Loved reading all emails and following along, Please continue in 2018 and perhaps I will be in the position to quilt along,

  4. Rosalene says:

    I would like to see a project that is suitable for a confident beginner that only has one block per week.

    • Dottie says:

      One block a week is a super idea. Not real complicated, though, please Mine will end up being a charity quilt. Would want yardages, too. Scrappy would be fun.

  5. Kelly says:

    I would love to see a quilt along for a Faithful Circle quilt.

  6. Linda says:

    I have saved every week of instructions for this quilt. But honestly, this is much to busy time of year for this project. I do, however, plan on making it after the holidays. I always enjoy this site and have made many quilts from your patterns offered here. Please keep them coming. A spring quilt project would be perfect. (I.e. No holidays) thank you so much for all your patterns.

  7. Betty says:

    I really like the suggestion of doing a series of miniature quilts as I usually have a major project in the works and then take a break from it by doing smaller items. This method works for me as if I change things up I tend to devote my attention to the large project if it gets repetitive. Whatever the project is I’ll be right there. The Bake Shop is one of my favorite places to visit.

  8. Rinda Fullmer says:

    I love small seasonal projects…maybe a mini quilt each month that could serve as a small wallhanging or table topper. It would be nice to have the option to put them together at the end into a “through the year” sampler quilt.

    • Dottie says:

      Wonderful idea! Really like this. Been wanting to do this and have the perfect spot. Once all are done, put into a single quilt to share.

  9. Tracy Cowden says:

    I️ think this quilt along was fabulous! I️ I️ look forward to future projects . It would be interesting to see small blocks and techniques to go along with it to ensure accuracy. Whatever the future quilt along holds- I️ will be there! Thank you Moda for making this possible ❤️ I️ would love to be a recipient of the give away

  10. I would so love to enter this contest with a picture of my quilt but I don’t have a website to link I have my facebook and its on there as I posted my finished top and I have it posted on my instagram account
    which is @nikestepp does this count?

  11. laura says:

    Would love to see a Fall or Christmas theme quilt along.

  12. Kathy Soman says:

    I get lots of inspiration from your site. I would like to see some shorter quilt alongs or maybe two weeks to complete a block. Just usually short on time between working and care giving.
    Thanks for having your site available for all of us.

  13. Jo says:

    I would love to do a quilt along. I think doing a series of small projects would be great, like table runners or wall hangings.

  14. Joyce Dimery says:

    I have finished the top and waiting to add border. This has been my first quilt along and I looked forward to each new block. I would love to do another one. Thank you Oda May for all your time and inspiration and making this project free to everyone. I,for one. can not wait to see what’s next.

  15. Anne Goff says:

    I really loved doing this project! Smaller projects might be nice though. My finished quilt is located on instagram. @anne.goff as well as you Moda bakers Facebook page

  16. Kim Anderson says:

    This was a fun project. Would like one in a smaller size and one with a variety of blocks such as, embroidery, appliqué, paper piecing, etc.

  17. Wendy Zick says:

    The finished tops/quilts have been beautiful! A Medallion quilt with a traditional look would be fun, perhaps with a bit of applique. This QAL has been fun!

  18. Laure says:

    I would love to see a series of smaller quilts (maybe one every two months) that used precuts and developed new skills. I haven’t started the 2017 quilt yet, but have saved all the instructions and hope to get to it soon. Thank you, Oda May, for all of the time and talents you put into this quilt.

  19. Judy Cozzi says:

    I like the idea of a series of small quilts. Thanks for all you do for us quilters!

  20. Sherio says:

    I would like to see more baby quilt ideas using pre cuts.

  21. Judy Smith says:

    I would like to see a project for a quilt along with instructions that can be adapted to anywhere from a lap size to a king size so we can all pick the size that works for us. I would also like to see something using less white. Although I do love the white backgrounds, I would like to change it up a little. Love the quilt along and plan on making this one after the holidays.

  22. Fran carmano says:

    I loved reading the tutorials and printed off blocks that I needed help with I didn’t make the quilt as it was presented because I have other unfinished projects. I will continue to access your site.

  23. Sandy K says:

    I think a series of mini quilts would be fun.

  24. Vicki H says:

    Mini quilts is a wonderful idea.

  25. Susan says:

    I would like table toppers or table runners. I have my fabric set aside for this last project and the directions but haven’t started it yet as I was making a wedding quilt for a grandson. Now that it’s off to my longarm quilter I can start a new project.

  26. Lee says:

    I loved following along and printed out all the info to complete! thank you very much! I would love to see in 2018 a quilt a long for confident beginners – with maybe 2 weeks to finish blocks! thanks!

  27. Kristy says:

    I would like to see a series of mini quilts that could be displayed in various manners, such as on stands, framed, toppers etc. in 2018.

  28. Sharon Phah says:

    I love sew alongside I’m at home most of the time. Working on the quilt found it late doing mods bike heads also. I love pre cuts any sew along would be great

  29. Melva Stinson says:

    I have enjoyed the sew along, started late but still pulled it together this week, have a date with the long arm on Friday – will easily be done in time for Christmas, its a gift for my mother in law. Look forward to the next one, not interested in mini quilts though….

  30. Teresa Maki says:

    Had a blast making the quilt,would send a pic if I knew how. Would like more of the same. I listened to a book on tape as I sewed and really enjoyed myself. Yay for 2018!!!!!

  31. Debbie Young says:

    A monthly wall hanging quilt along would be nice. I would also love to see a quilt along with different star blocks each month.

  32. Donie Green says:

    I have only made a jelly roll quilt. so I’m eager for anything a beginner can do.. I would also like to be included in your give away..

  33. Kit says:

    Would love to see project using all HST blocks.

  34. Verna says:

    Another vote here for mini quilts!

  35. Brenda Horrocks says:

    I’m brand new to this so smaller would be better for me as well. 🙂 The bigger things feel a little overwhelming.

  36. Patty S. says:

    I think for 2018, I’d like to see a wall hanging size quilt, and maybe use Bella Solids to create some dimension or movement with the pattern. Where we could use varying shades of one color so the block looks faceted. That would be cool!

  37. Nicole Sender says:

    I’d like to see projects that are smaller; like mini quilts!

  38. Lillian K (TX) says:

    I vote for miniature or small quilts also. I have a hard time keeping up with larger projects.

  39. In 2018 i thinke i make a triangle Quilt for my son….and a quilt for my mother?
    I love mini quilts…maybe i do that… i have a many ideas for the great fabrics. 🙂

    Have a nice day the Nähbegeisterte
    (naehbegeisterte@gmail.com)

  40. margaret reid says:

    Please include me in the giveaway. I truly enjoyed making this quilt. I did it Christmas flavours Looks Great!!! Thank you so much. Seems you can find mini quilts everywhere but hard to find a full sized quilt along. Thanks again !!

  41. Wanda says:

    I loved this quilt along and really enjoyed making this quilt!! It was fun as well as a bit challenging. I am almost done with a birthday present quilt than I can get my QA top finished! I will be looking forward to more quilt-alongs here. I love Moda Bake Shop and have made several quilts from patterns here. Keep up the fun projects!

  42. Kay says:

    I love quilting but do find it hard to get everything done that I want to along with work and family schedules. I would like a series on mini quilts, perhaps just one for each season. This would be much more achievable for me. Thank you for a great giveaway. x

  43. andiemcbee says:

    Love to see smaller projects and more precuts.
    Distantsub at g mail dot com

  44. Valerie says:

    I also would like to see smaller projects as I am not able to complete a large quilt these days. I liked the idea of having a series of mini quilts. Your site has been an inspiration to me for years and I have made quite a lot of large quilts from your patterns. So glad the pattern for this quilt along will be available as I may well use something from it one day.

  45. carolyn says:

    I would love to see more “modern” quilt patterns.

    • Skeeter says:

      Here, here!! Would love a more modern quilt option. Love moda fabrics especially all the new contemporary patterns.

  46. Martina says:

    I would love to sew along for pillows, tablerunners, miniquilts or other smaller items. Not much time to sew or especially to finish big tops, lol!

  47. Judy Bird says:

    I’m fairly new to the Moda Bakeshop but have always loved the Moda fabrics I would like to see simpler projects on offer in 2018 please. I’d love to be included in your give-away!

  48. Lorraine M says:

    Ah, give always. Just love them and those that finished this quilt thoroughly deserve one. As for us slow coaches or not yet starters, they deserve a give away too. For encouragement, lol.
    I support the miniature quilts idea as I have yet to make one and several patterns for these would be wonderful.

  49. Connie Creekmore says:

    I love the idea of mini quilts, with the option of making a sampler with them. Possibly seasonal mini quilts.

  50. Chris Reeske says:

    I didn’t do this QAL partly because it was too much at a time when I had commissions to finish. For next year I would love to see a smaller QAL, e.g. a throw or a table runner, that could be easily expanded with more blocks. Maybe a 2 block pattern, or a modern quilt.

  51. chrissie says:

    Stars, stars, stars …. individual for tree decs, garlands for banister, tree skirts, quilts to snuggle under something like this that is seasonal and expands depending on what time you have !! lol or what you can ignore to sew !!! 😉

  52. Leslie Wittenberg says:

    I would like to see something with paper piecing

  53. Michelle Hatley says:

    I too would like to see smaller projects for the coming year. I haven’t finished this one but I will.

  54. sangeetha says:

    Mini quilts featuring block techniques and of the same size, so anyone whonwnats to join them to make a larger one can

  55. Karla says:

    Thank you for all the time you put into the QAL. It was very inspirational and made a really lovely quilt. For 2018, maybe simple vintage blocks from the past that we really don’t see any longer and add a modern twist.

  56. Karen says:

    Have printed all directions for this and do hope to get to it in the near future. Have read most of comments and have to agree that a ‘smaller’ project or series of smaller items would be better for a lot of us in 2018.

  57. Gudie says:

    It was so much fun doing this quilt a long. The first I have ever done. Can’t wait for the next one. I would like to do a vintage quilt, I have some hankies from family that I would love to incorporate into a quilt.

  58. Laurel Marsolais says:

    I’d love to see a more manageable project – perhaps miniature quilts. Still challenging, but less overwhelming!

  59. Vickie says:

    Would also like to see small projects/mini quilts! And please enter me in the giveaway.I also have saved all the weekly downloads for the future since lately I have been making a lot of baby quilts and now Christmas gifts…thanks for all the inspiration

  60. ArtsyOne says:

    I didn’t even start this quilt-along because it seemed too long and involved. Would love to see quilts adjustable to size (wall/baby/crib/lap,twin,double, etc) using precuts. I’m only able to sew on weekends, so something that can be assembled in a shorter time frame would be great.

  61. JennyM says:

    I have enjoyed following the QAL, but didn’t care to start another large project. I like the idea of smaller monthly projects that could be used as if for decorating or sewn together at the end for an all year quilt. Whatever you choose I will follow along. I learn so much from reading the instructions and seeing the photos. Thanks for all you do!

  62. Kathy says:

    This was my first QAL and I really enjoyed it and learned some new techniques. My quilt is in the process of being put together. I did not like my ‘nough said blocks so I am making new ones…..then I can finish putting it together. I would love another QAL where we can make the quilt whatever size we wanted to make and I also like the idea of some mini quilts.

  63. Carol B says:

    I have enjoyed looking at the patterns and have saved them but this is a bad time of the year for me to get anything extra accomplished. I have birthdays, Christmas and a new Great-grandson due to arrive just before Christmas so am busy working on a quilt for him. After that I am planning on working on the quilt. I also would like some smaller projects for my wall as I have two hanging right now that are going to need to be replaced soon with more seasonal quilts. I love quilt alongs so keep them going.

  64. Sandra Laws says:

    Looks like most of you want smaller projects and mini quilts. If that includes cutting up beautiful fabric into tiny, tiny pieces, count me out! I love the beautiful fabric that is being produced today, but I hate cutting it up into tiny pieces. Please…a quilt pattern with large blocks containing larger pieces. I love looking at the quilts that all of you make, though. Thank you for the opportunity to give my opinion.

  65. Carole Kersh says:

    It was a fun quilt along, sorry to say, I am way behind. I would like to see a smaller project that I could get finished. Thanks for all you do for us quilters.

  66. Joyce Koeppl says:

    I Iove this site! Have not started yet but finally bought material & adding from my stash which is small. Just had surgery with a 2nd to follow when strong enough. I have loved looking at others so much! I’d love to see a spring fun quilt, perhaps a flannel one as another choice.

  67. Ginny A says:

    I have barely started my blocks. I agree that this time of year is hard with all of our holiday sewing and commitments. I intend to finish my top after the holidays. So many good suggestions for next year. Thank you for your site. So many wonderful projects all the time!

  68. Marian Nielsen says:

    I haven’t finished my quilt yet. But it’s good to have some joy in January and February. Don’t stress

  69. Lynn says:

    I just found this site and love it! I can not wait to start this quilt along project, it is adorable! I hope you do another quilt along project next year so I can follow along!

  70. Pam Beck says:

    I have followed along by email and will work on the project soon (I hope). How about a smaller project next year or even more than one small projects? I love Moda Bake Shop and all its lovely patterns. Thanks for having the giveaway. Blessed be, hugs!!! Pam Beck

  71. Perry Leigh says:

    I’d like to see modern quilt or geometric design as a quilt along. It might draw younger quilters to the site.

  72. Karin Vail Karin Vail says:

    I vote for a series of mini quilts too! I might just have to come up with one for a MBS project 🙂 I am almost done quilting my quilt-along quilt – will post a link when it is done!

  73. Lindsay Franklin says:

    I’ve never done a quilt along and couldn’t this time because of a new baby. I’d love to do one someday, though! It would be great to see a quilt pattern that would allow me to incorporate lots and of the scraps I’ve accumulated over the years. Also, something kind of modern would be great! Love all the ideas I see on your site.

  74. Susan L. says:

    In 2018, I would love to see a Mini Quilt series!

  75. Jane Kiney says:

    I love this quilt pattern and have plans to complete over the winter. Moda Bake Shop is a wonderful resource for Quilters. Perhaps the next quilt along can provide options for different sizes of the quilt pattern for those who prefer smaller or larger options.

  76. Jean says:

    I, too, love the idea of a series of mini quilts – one per month with a theme for the month. That way we could turn it into a table runner, pillow, etc. This years (2017) quilt along is a fantastic quilt, I have downloaded all the instructions to make next year. I had already committed to another quilt along for 2017. Plan on the Moda one for next year – no matter what it is.

  77. Stacy says:

    I would love to see a quilt a long featuring foundation paper piecing.

  78. Sally MB says:

    I would like to see projects with skinny or mini quilts, especially some using jelly rolls.

  79. Shari says:

    For 2018 I would like to see a mini quilt each month with a theme being a year through the calendar. In January, we would do a February (probably Love) theme, make them all 12″ finished so they could be a mini quilt or we could put them all together at the end of the year. We could also display them on a 12″ quilt hanger. I would suggest a variety of paper piecing and traditional pieced blocks and applique.

  80. Darlene Fel.... says:

    I would like to see something smaller. I don’t always have time for something that big. Maybe like miniatures or little bags, giftsy type items.

  81. CHARLOTTE KEY says:

    Small projects sound good to me since I just finished making quilts for everyone in my family and they all were king and queen sized.

  82. Tina M Bolin says:

    I loved the quilt along and was very happy with the size of the project. I would like to see the next quilt along use a different pre-cut, like a jelly roll or the 5″ square.

  83. Shelley Wardrop says:

    So happy and pleased with results of my FIRST bake along! Picture of my finished quilt top on the Facebook group page. Thanks for the experience. I’d like seeing smaller, seasonal and/or modern designs in the future.

  84. Terry Greenstreet says:

    I would love to do a civil war type pattern. Have loved following this one. Was my first and enjoyed it greatly. Not done but working on it.

  85. Rita Pawlowicz says:

    I’m new to your blog but am looking forward to the 2018 project(s). How about a series of seasonal tablerunners? Winter, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Spring, Summer, 4th of July, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a month to catch up. (We all need that!)

  86. Terry Greenstreet says:

    I do agree with the comment above. would love to see something done with pre-cuts.

  87. Eileen Maher says:

    I would like to see mini quilts or tablerunners next year.

  88. Danny Applegate says:

    I love the Name Oda May’s so i followed along,fun. thank you..
    Looking forward to 2018.Fay

  89. Kathy Cummings says:

    I haven’t started yet but I want to!!
    I like the idea of mini, or a weekly block! Thank you for all this!!

  90. Dottie says:

    Your precuts are such a great idea: Charms, Jelly Rolls, & Layer Cakes are my favorites. Sure would be fun to make something with a Charm Pack or two.

  91. Polly Monica says:

    Loved this Oda May Sew-along! Would do another! I’d love smaller quilts, though! This one was a bit big! One block a week would be great! Mini quilts or seasonal projects would be fun, too! Don’t know how to add a photo here… and you said photos on the MBS Facebook page would not count??? So, kinda stuck! Here’s a link to the photos I posted…https://www.facebook.com/groups/274986516320696?view=permalink&id=326709214481759. My Quilt is completely finished ‘ quilted, bound and labeled! Hope I can be included in the giveaway!

  92. Gillian says:

    I would like to see a modern design, simple blocks, clever use of colour so I could keep up with a block a week 🙂

  93. Jenn Stevenson says:

    It really sounds like everyone else loves the seasonal, small wall hanging made into a possible large quilt at the end. I do love the modern ideas or themed blocks in variety of sizes (ie. options in 6″, 8″, or 12″) so we can pick our sizes. I like the stars ideas or learning new techniques, just please not baskets – never been a fan. What about 52 ways to make a hexagon? Those could be small, big, faceted, modern, patterned, smalls together to make a large and then sewn together – that would be fun! Many people said they wanted beginner stuff or fast – I want to test my skills & expand them. Maybe a beginner series and a more advanced one? Keep the friends you have and make new ones too. 🙂

  94. Sally Heilinger says:

    I’d like to see smaller quilts that could be combined at the end of the year to make a larger quilt.
    At least if you don’t finish all the blocks, you have a nice series of mini-quilts!

  95. Trudy Deon says:

    A lot of people like the mini or smaller quilt which I’m all for table toppers, baby, or put several blocks together to make twin, or big quilts is a great idea, but big quilts I have no use for and they are hard handle for me. Love the quilt along learned alot. Not finshed yet but plan to. I have 4 baby quilts to make this year, and some table toppers to make a as gifts. It would be nice to be in the give away.

  96. Judy Valentino says:

    still working on my quilt. would love to do another quilt along in 2018–any kind!!!

  97. Jessica Salleng says:

    I like the idea of a quilt along of weekly block patterns but no specific setting.I think it would be fun to see what everyone could come up with. So if someone wanted to use their blocks for multiple small quilts or one large quilt it would be all up to the individual person.

  98. Helen says:

    I join the chorus asking for a series of smaller projects, but perhaps each project could focus on developing a new skill?

  99. Cynthia Wood says:

    I would love to see an applique quilt with 1 block at a time. Most patterns are fun, for a change I would like to see something elegant.

  100. I would love to see a series of monthly or seasonal themed small units for wall hangings in my office. Love the quilt alongs, they keep me going to done, inspire me with everyone elses beautiful colorways! I love how we don`t look like 10000 kits, but rather all a bit different and I learn so much. Whatever it is, I`m sure to join in

  101. Kim says:

    I would love to see a sampler as a quilt along. I am self taught so never took a leant to quilt class to do a sampler block quilt! Thanks for the chance to win and being able to make a suggestion

  102. Martha Fast says:

    As I was following all the posts about quilt market I fell in love with the beautiful florals in so many new collections. I would love to see a QAL using big blocks that showcase these wonderful fabrics.

  103. Nancy Trullinger says:

    So I know that this totally goes against the grain of some quilters, but what about incorporating a little fashion project? I showed my 16 year old daughter my latest quilt fabric purchase of Wild Nectar and her statement was, “I would so make a dress out of that!” I know that apparel sewing isnt a quilt, but the sew along could be anything from an apron to a baby outfit to a flared skirt. Just a thought.

  104. Gloria S. says:

    I would like to see seasonal table runners or small wall quilts. I love Moda fabrics!

  105. Mary says:

    Oda Mae, I really want to thank you for such a fun and enjoyable quilt a long. You did a great job and I appreciate you sharing your talents with the rest of us. I haven’t finished mine yet, but when I do, I will be so proud. Again thanks.

  106. CanadianKim says:

    I have been reading some of the comments and I love the idea of something scrappy – perhaps with options to make it into a few different sizes or blocks into bags, table runner, wall hanging etc. Some ladies have been mentioning smaller projects however doing something so versatile may take allot of planning. Loving this input idea, thank you

  107. Becky says:

    Wasn’t able to do this project – would like to see more of the same in 2018 – love getting ideas, seeing new products, reading on the blog and seeing all the lovely fabrics on the Bake Shop site. Thanks for the giveaway – just absolutely love Moda!!!!

  108. Terri S says:

    Just found this, so I didn’t do the QAL. I would love small projects like mini quilts or ornaments. Something easy every month so I can feel a sense of accomplishment.

  109. Carol Dye says:

    Really like the idea of a mini every week or two that could be finished as a quilt or just some super cute blocks for a wall grouping.

  110. Ruth McCort says:

    I love to make bags, so how about a quilt-along on various bags.

  111. Karen says:

    I have all my piecing instructions and designated fabrics for each block. May not get to sew until after Christmas. Lots of gifts to finish! I really like shorter quilt alongs of 6 months or less. It is easier to stay excited about them so they get finished. Step by step complex blocks such as Snail Trail, Dresden, Storm at Sea, or New York Beauty would be good for me to try as quilt alongs. Just looking at the blocks is intimidating and doing one step at a time would take the stress away. Thank you for all the projects, videos, give aways, and helpful comments you provide.

  112. TXQuilter says:

    I don’t have anything to “show” yet either … but I’ve got the patterns and most of my fabrics set aside. Darn work just keeps getting in my way! I would vote also for smaller projects that are quicker to get through and FINISH … table toppers, mini quilts, a small seasonal wall quilt or baby quilts !! & Thanks for all the great inspiration & Happy Turkey Day to everyone !!

  113. Kim Sullivan says:

    Love Moda overall and wish I had more time to sew along! Agree with many others here that a smaller project would allow me to participate more.

  114. Carmen N. says:

    I’d love to see ehat can be done with miniatures. Maybe options for both minis and larger blocks. Maybe a quilt combining both.

  115. Beth T. says:

    Perhaps four smaller projects that could joined together to make one large quilt, or hung separately as small wallhangings. (With seasonal themes, for example?) That way, if I didn’t have time during one quarter/season, I could still take part during the rest of the year and it would be fine either way.

  116. Kit says:

    Would love to see table runners.

  117. Barb Roddy says:

    I would like to see a Sampler Quilt that can be personalized. My mother made one for my sister many years ago and it is still prominately displayed in her home. I remember a simple House Block with our address embroidered on it. Other blocks might include: a Star for a veteran or special child, a Heart to include a special date and names, a signature block, a block with a large space for a special “fussy cut” fabric, a little girls dress or boys shirt and pants. I’m sure other moda bakers have additional ideas. This quilt could be any size depending on duplication of favorite blocks and the addition of dashing and borders. I would love a sampler lap quilt that represents my family.

    I ordered more Poetry fabric so I can complete this quilt along using that fabric. I will have a late start. I really enjoyed seeing the quilts on Facebook. I love Moda Bakeshop. It is inspirational.

  119. Amy Frye says:

    I would just love to participate next year. My budget just didn’t allow for it this year. I am having sewing/quilting withdraw.

  120. Rachel says:

    I’d love to see something next year like a small-medium wall hanging quilt that can be a showstopper, or maybe an all red embroidery quilt.

  121. Barbara Kaup says:

    I like at least a throw size quilt–maybe one using precuts or fat quarters.

  122. Anna in IL says:

    I love the idea of a throw size quilt. I have many packages of 10 inch squares and of course, jelly rolls, so something using those would be great. I would also be interested in different ways to make traditional blocks, such as Dresden plates, etc.
    I’m always interested in new fabrics, so a giveaway is right up my alley.

  123. patty says:

    Projects using mini-charms.

  124. Judi Smith says:

    I’d like to make some table toppers or runners. Seasonal ones would be great! I can give those as gifs.

  125. Tricia says:

    It would be fun to do a series of mini quilts or small projects. Something I can finish in a few days!

  126. Mona Phelps says:

    In 2018, I’d like to see items other than quilts – what else can you do with your fabric?

  127. Peggy Tschetter says:

    I really liked this quilt and feel good that I was able to stay mostly caught up. The blocks are finished and the top is almost put together However, it will have to wait till Christmas projects are finished. I would like to see a lap size quilt as those make great gifts. Or perhaps quilts that would be suitable to donate to Project Linus or Quilts of Valor or other organizations. I always love a quilt top that combines applique and pieced.

  128. Corinne says:

    I loved this pattern, not done yet started late. I would love seasonal table runners or wall hangings

  129. Gina Milano says:

    #2 – 2018 quilt along idea. I would love to see a GIFT ALONG in 2018 with 4-6 projects that each might take 2-3 months to complete; baby quilts, table runners, table toppers, wall hanging, etc. With seasonal color variations, I could see myself making multiples of my favorites.

  130. Donna says:

    I would love to see a bay size quilt, not really a baby quilt but that size. Just not enough hours in the day for a big quilt. Also minis would be good. I love the quilt we just did but not finished yet.

  131. Candace says:

    I would love to see mini quilts and more advanced quilts. I think the basic quilt blocks are great for beginners, but it would be nice to alternate between easier and more advanced quilts.

  132. Nora Malloch says:

    I’d love to see a mini quilt quilt along, with the option at the end to sew all the mini quilts together and make a kind of sampler quilt!

  133. Ellen Elmore says:

    I too would like to see mini’s or smaller projects that can be realistically completed. Time is always hard to find and larger projects can seem overwhelming. Thank you for all the patterns and ideas it gets my imagination going.

  134. Julie W says:

    Thank you so much for running this. This QAL is getting me through some tough time. My quilt top can be found at https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbcv4qkBZUM/

  135. Julie W says:

    I would love to see a variety of projects in 2018. I love baby quilts, throws, and table runners. Thank you for this site!

  136. LeAnne K says:

    I’m still planning to complete this QAL but always look forward to new projects. I like the idea of doing mini quilts next year. Or a project that can incorporate primarily scrap fabrics! I love this site and all the projects that are shared.

  137. Regina Harris says:

    I would love to also see small items, e.g., table or bed runners, placemats, throws. Thanks for all of the great idas.

  138. JennyH says:

    Crib or wall size quilt along.

  139. LeAnn says:

    I would love to see a Christmas set..stockings, wall hangings, tree skirts, etc. I loved this one, I have all my fabric and I have printed the instructions now to find the time to start. Thank you.

  140. Sue Fender says:

    This quilt seems like a lot of fun. I have printed all the weekly directions. Because I work full time and am already working on seven other quilts I just could not find the time to make this quilt as it went along. However once I have knocked off a couple of my present projects I will indeed work on this one.

  141. Danette says:

    I may now have the opportunity to do some quilt alongs. I do like throw or bed-size quilts. They are so useful and can be washed and loved. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

  142. Diane says:

    Finally have finished enopugh other projects to start this Quilt. I hope to get started soon. Would love some small projects that i can take when traveling.

  143. Jenness Draper says:

    Enjoyed working on this quilt (most of the time). I am a little behind as I am just now putting my blocks together. A friend and I get together almost every Tuesday to sew. We worked on these blocks each week and she has finished hers The finished quilt is very interesting and enjoyable to look at. I am sure whatever you decide my friend and I will be sewing along each week I don’t need anymore small projects, but I guess I really don’t “need” more quilts either. I like the idea of a block a week and then we would have the choice of making small items with the blocks, baby quilts, etc. or a larger quilt. A variety of techniques ( applique, paper piecing, embroidery) would be fun. Thanks for all of the great projects you have provided for us quilters. Not to mention all of the beautiful fabric

    This was my biggest quilt top I made, and I loved the quilt along, it was so much fun. Here is a picture of my top: https://dagmar0815.wordpress.com/2017/11/16/mein-weihnachtsquilt/
    I would like more sew alongs , may be smaller quilts or table runners would be nice.
    Greetings

  145. Marcy says:

    For 2018: smal quilts, useful items, baby things, challenges

  146. Sandra Bylsma says:

    Love Love Love that I can download projects with your “printer friendly versions”. I have been stockpiling ideas for this winter. I live in Michigan and winter is “quilting time”. I have used many of the small project ideas to use as “gifts to give” or when helping my daughter learn to sew. Can’t say enough how great this site is!! We live on a pretty strict budget and while I see many books I would love to purchase and own it is not always where money is spent. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful to find a site that allows me access to a lot of ideas for free!! Thank you, Thank you!!
    Sincerely,
    Sandra

  147. Renata Beason says:

    Love this project this was my first one. In the future i would like to see different methods use in the piecing.

  148. Jessica Salleng says:

    Here is a picture of my completed quilt top. https://www.instagram.com/p/BbksSYeFzc0/

  149. Suz A says:

    Hoping this works – trying a link from facebook to my pix of my completed quilt top for the contest! Loved making it – thanks!

  150. Kathy MacPherson says:

    Would love to see a wall size quilt along.

  151. Jessa says:

    For 2018 Id love to see something classic and vintage. It seems like vintage is everywhere right now.

  152. kris prescott says:

    I would like to see some abstract landscape type quilts. I think it would give the sewing school lots of techniques to show us, and would be good for all skill levels.

  153. Sue Hook says:

    It appears that I am an outlier! I do not like mini quilts – I have nothing to do with them once they are completed. At least with a quilt any size I can always gift it! I loved this quilt along. I have one side of the binding to complete and hope to have picture posted tonight. I love the Moda Bake Shop and have made many of the items. I vote for a quilt for the next quilt along – not a wall hanging or a table runner or mini quilt. It is a “quilt” along 😉 after all. Thanks for all of your chefs and all of the free patterns. Your site is my favorite.

  154. Beth Roireau says:

    I would like to see a Modern design with some paper piecing and modern applique. I liked making a large project and felt that the pace was good until the final assembly. It would have been easier to complete if we added the “block specific” sashing as we went along. Thank you for the project.

  155. Kris prescott says:

    Just posted my finished quilt to the bake shop, and instagram (quilttolive) hopefully this will link right to it!!

  156. Debora Ussery says:

    I have so enjoyed this quilt! As soon as I saw the pic of the black/white quilt I knew it needed to be a rainbow for the hashtag lines! I used a floral Ambrosia by Timeless Treasures and DAIWABO line of rainbow of colors! I did a lot of fussy cutting the Applesauce blocks! I learned a lot about those 1/2 square triangles! I will be quilting mine in 3 sections. Top/Middle/Bottom. I have put a 4 inch border on top section and bottom section. I will quilt the quilt myself with my Westelee Quilt Template rulers.

    I felt this quilt really pushed me out of my comfort zone!! Thank you for that!

  157. Kathy E. says:

    I’d like to see more projects using modern and improv techniques. You already have such a great variety of projects offered (thank you!), but my interests always lean towards modern!

  158. Heather says:

    Thoroughly enjoyed this QAL. I would love something with stars or Irish chain alternating with a different block. Wall hangings would be great the link to my finished quilt https://instagram.com/p/BbqSLZrHq0u/

    I finished my quilt! No UFOs allowed!!
    I probably won’t do this again. I like it better when I can cut out all the pieces and know I have enough. I had to improvise a lot. But all in all this made a BIG cozy quilt and I thank you for the project!
