  13. Nann says:

    I’m always in the market for interesting designs for quilting, especially when they’ve been created for continuous line stitching. However, if I won it I would donate it to the library so that the contents could be shared by many quiltmakers.

  16. Gretchen Wiener says:

    I am a long time mostly hand quilter who just purchased a new dream sewing machine with a BSR foot. Today I took a class at the shop where I purchased it and was introduced to the world of machine quilting. Nature themes have always been in my life and quilts and I’d love to try the patterns in this new book!

  17. Vickie W says:

    Looks like a really great book giving ideas for expanding quilting skills!

  19. Susan Sampson says:

    Scandinavian quilting would be a chance to design nature in a new way. Fun.

  20. Marvel Simmons says:

    Desire to create is there, the novice quilting knowledge is acceptable to complete a project, but the inspiration of taking the project to the next level … Santa can you help me please? I’ll be a good girl all of 2012 if you pick me!

  21. SoozeM says:

    Looks like a great book, I would love it because the quilting is such an important part of the quilt and this book has so many ideas for those more difficult quilts!

  22. Nancy says:

    This looks like a “must have” book. It would be a great addition to my quilt library.

    I’m ready to start a new project. This book interests me because of the nature theme, and I can visualize the beautiful colors and sewing that are in the designs.

    Just the cover gets me inspired! I can’t wait to see what’s inside it!

  28. JLJenn says:

    I would really like some inspiration for quilting, as I don’t really know how to design the quilting and I don’t know where to start.

  29. Gina Taylor says:

    This book looks like a wonderful resource. I just finished a quilt and used a dove motif as the quilting design. Since I do not have a long arm and do my quilting using ‘free motion’ on my sewing machine, it took me forever to find a design that would work for me. I finally combined a couple of graphics from coloring books. This book would save me hours of searching for the perfect design and a ton of frustration!

  30. Katie Brown says:

    New quilting patterns to start the New Year ? AWESOME

  31. Nola says:

    More creativity can be sparked by ideas shown in this new book. Continuous line quilting patterns would certainly complement a quilt. I’d be glad to add this to my resources!

  32. The patterns are different than most patterns with the Scandinavian clean lines and the connection to the environment & nature. I’d love to have it!

  33. Elizabeth VanSickle says:

    I have only recently started quilting my own quilts. This looks like the pefect book to keep me going and making my quilts stand out!
