    Lovely quilt! I liked your You Tube video on making a Trip Around the World quilt top. Very helpful!

    I would like a tutorial on rotary cutting. Sounds silly I know, but I’m never real sure how I should line up the ruler marks when I’m using the ruler not the mat to line up my cuts.

  3. Dani says:

    I enjoyed your YouTube channel and found it so helpful being new to quilting. My favorite video is of the “Cross Stitch Quilt”. I have been wanting to make one like this and now I can. Thank you Lauren!

    I like the HST tutorial. I use the eight at a time method and it saves a lot of time when you need multiples of the same HST. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Hi Lauren,
    I love cross stitch and quilting, so this is a fun tutorial. I like your freight train series, and your Trip Around the World quilt. Thanks for sharing. ~smile~ Roseanne

  15. Sue says:

    I just subscribed to your channel, so I have yet to watch any videos. But videos are always great for a new technique or an instruction that is not easily pictured.

  16. Jenny Grandfield says:

    I am a first time subscriber to your YouTube channel! I will have to get caught up on your videos. Thanks for this tutorial! Looks like it would be a fun and easy quilt to make.

  17. Rosemaryflower says:

    Lauren, as always, you are one of my favorite bloggers. You are so inspiring.
    This would make a fun happy quilt for my 2 year old grand daughter.

    Additionally, your photography skills are excellent. I love fields of flowers.
    If I am driving, and I see a bunch of pretty flowers along the country roads, I will say “Oh look at those cute flowers, wow wow” and then I remember I am driving haha

  18. Shawn WRrght says:

    I love this pattern and your color choices! I also watched your youtube demonstration and it was well done. Thank you!

  19. Debbie Y says:

    This video was great, can’t wait to watch the others. I really like this pattern. I’m planning to use it for a Project Linus quilt.

  20. pam roever says:

    I subscribed to your channel but haven’t looked around as yet. Love this quilt pattern. Would make a great easy project if you needed something in a hurry. Thank you for your time and talents . Thanks also for the giveaway! pam

  21. Terry says:

    I subscribed to your channel a while back. I really like that you have videos showing how to put together a quilt from start to finish. I would have loved to have had that available to me when I first started quilting, but I didn’t even have a computer at that time. Even if you take a class, sometimes someone else can show you something on YouTube and it just seems to click.

  22. Kathy E. says:

    I am so appreciative of the tip to use the Quilt In A Day Square Up ruler on the Half-Square Triangle video. I really, really need that ruler to make my HST-making so much more accurate! Your videos are so calming and easy to follow. Very little distractions and up close viewing makes a video! Thank you!

  23. Deborah W. says:

    Really enjoyed your Flag Quilt Block video – very straight forward, easy to follow, no unneeded details to bog down the process. Thank you!

  24. Wendy Osborn says:

    I love that you have start to finish tutorials… I never even thought about finding this on YouTube! I’m just a couple years into quilting so I still struggle with binding. I feel like those tutorials are about to become a constant view in my house!! Thanks for sharing!

  25. Jan altomare says:

  30. Madeline says:

    I am attracted bright fabrics with a white background too! Your quilts are perfect for prayer quilts that I make for our church, and the cross stitch quilt is on my to-do list.

  31. Danette says:

    I subscribed to your videos. It’s awesome that you can create videos that are so helpful! The wheelchair video is wonderful. I will refer to that if I need that down the road, possibly for my mother since she walks with a cane, now. The wheelchair might help her later on.

  41. Carol Hofstetter says:

    I just started following your You Tube channel and also signed up at your website. This pattern is perfect timing as I’m making 16 (yes sixteen) quilts for Christmas gifts for all of our grandchildren. Boy patterns seems SO difficult for me and I thing this one is perfect for one of my grandsons. I watched your HST video on You Tube and it helped me a lot. I have trouble with colors. Maybe you can do a video on that one day. Thanks for the Cross Stitch pattern!

  42. Lynne W says:

    Just signed up. Love the freshness of the cross stitch quilt

  43. Kit says:

    Your You Tube channel is based on the basics. I know many people who would benefit from this.

  45. Mickey Cunningham says:

    Really like this quilt! You make it look so easy! I tried quilting once but didn’t have the patience. Maybe give it another try!!

  46. sewroseyblog says:

    I am looking forward to future blogs and You Tube tutorials. I love your approach to keeping it simple and doable.

  47. Andi M says:

    I subscribed and I’m excited about all of your videos. I really like the American flag quilt though, very excited about that video.

  48. carol says:

    I just subscribed. I like the word “easy” as I don’t have time, skill, or patience to work on long forever and overwhelming projects. I can learn from everything I see. So much to practice. I like the HST.

  49. Pam says:

    I subscribed just now, loved all the videos, n especially the cross stitch one. Can’t wait to start on the others!

  50. Susan Suchower says:

    Hi Lauren, I liked your video about using the backing as the binding. Now I will know how to do it…. thank you. It will be a big help with table runners or toppers and mug rugs which make great holiday gifts.

  51. Lily says:

    Enjoyed the cross stitch video. Finished quilt looks much more than EASY level. I think this would be a good choice for one of my grandsons. Thanks for doing this video.

  52. Laurel Lee's Blog says:

    I am always looking for EASY quilts that still have lots of visual appeal. I am excited about making this cross stitch quilt!
