  1. I was trying to make three quilts for Christmas, but I will not finish them on time. Maybe for Valentine's Day. I am working on one for my husband and on for each of my kids. I am so close to finishing but, I don't like rushing, it isn't enjoyable.

  2. Hi Jane,
    I'd make a community quilt for my guild to give to someone who needs a quilty hug at this time of the year – in fact I am doing just that at the moment.

  3. My machine is being serviced right now so quilty gifts won't happen. I would probably have liked to make a family picnic quilt for us to use and enjoy over summer (love presents for the whole family!)

  4. I am in the process of making a quilt for my sister in law but don't know that it will be done in time. If I had more time, I would make quilts for the family that we have adopted at work.

    Thanks!
    Sandy A

  5. If I had the time I would make a quilt for a friend/co-worker who's Husband is going through serious health problems.I think she needs something to cuddle under and to get her mind off of things.

  6. I actually did make a quilt to give to someone for Christmas this year. The recipient is my daughter. Thanks for a lovely giveaway and the opportunity to win the charm pack.

  7. If I had time, I would be making a quilt for my b-i-l, who recently lost his wife. He's so sad and alone, and I just want to wrap him up in hugs and cuddles. I'll be making that quilt, but it won't be in time for Christmas this year.

  8. If I had time to make a quilt for Christams it would be for my sister. She's wanted a Christmas quilt tree skirt for years, but I never seem to get around to it.

  9. I would love to make a quilt for my sister who received a dire diagnosis fourteen months ago. I am so thankful to have another Christmas with her :-) It will be a very happy holiday.

  10. I would make a quilt for my daughter……… she's interstate, and won't be able to fly out from the remote NT location until the wet season is over. That would give me time to finish the quilt if I were to win. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  11. I DID make a quilt for Christmas this year & gave it to my brother. He is a big guy & sits in his big chair all day so I made it for him to snuggle up in! Lovely layer cake. Thanks for the chance.

  12. I would make one for my friend B who is one of my quilting mentors. I'm still struggling to learn how to cut straight (hee), so it won't happen this year, but someday… 😉

  13. I've already made 2 quilts for family members this season, but I would really like to make one for my Mother-in-law. The trouble is, I view her as extremely picky. And because of that, I haven't found "the perfect" pattern yet. Thus, she is one of the only family members that doesn't have a quilt, and I think she is beginning to be bent out of shape about it. Yikes!

  14. I have already made quilts for many family members for Christmas. Parents, in-laws, sisters, SILs, aunts, nieces etc. I give them mostly to the girls/women but I know the guys use them too. Maybe next year I need to break with tradition and make "guy quilts" and give them to the male members of the family.

  15. I would have to make it irst and then see who it would "fit"! I think quilts look like they belong to a crtain person when they are done!

  16. I made lap quilts for both my adult kids last year and would like to make one for each of their beds. I have fabric for one and am waiting for a friend to make up a pattern for me.

  17. I am making a quilt for the children of my niece. She is a single mother with a son and a daughter. she can't afford to live on her own anymore, so she will move in with her children with her parents. I'm making a quilt for her children to give on new years day.

  18. I am currently working on a quilt to give to my mother. She will get to choose what organization to donate it to. (I gave her a quilt last year and Dad one this year.) She is very involved (long-distance) in helping me pick fabrics and deciding who I will donate the various quilts to so I thought she should get the fun of doing it herself this year.

  19. I am making a quilt for someone this Christmas … It is for my adult daughter who has just had our first grandchild. What does a new mummy need but a big comfy quilt to snuggle under with her little treasure

  20. HI Jane…. I wish I had time to make up a quilt for my nephew … his brother passed away earlier this year which was very sad but he has just announced his engagement so we are all delighted ….

  21. I made a brown,beige and cream cancer quilt for my husband. He has gone through 4 surgeries and survived each one. I saw this quilt on the Internet and knew immediately I had to make this for him. He turned 69 in November and I wanted him to know how much he is loved. Thank you so much for the awesome giveway.

  22. Last Christmas I made a quilt for my mother-in-law's bed. She loves it. This year, I have made a quilt for her chair. She loves to crochet and spends the vast majority of her day making blankets, covering wooden coat hangers and making toys, so a comfy quilt that she can either sit on or cover herself with when the weather eventually turns cooler is a nice gift for her. She will be 89 next April and is such a generous soul. It is nice to be able to give her something useful and decorative at the same time.

  23. I would make a quilt for my good friend Mindy, who just moved into a fantastic 1930s era house complete with every period detail you can imagine. (I am making her a quilt, but it won't be done before Christmas!)

  24. I would make a quilt for a good friend of our family ( I have it partially completed but not sure if it will get done or not) and one for one of my brothers. There are many more people that I would like to make one for – just not enough time.
    Thanks for participating in the blog hop- it will be grand.
    Regards from Western Canada,
    Anna

  25. I would get the help of three of my friends to make a quilt for our local Doctor who looks after all four of us. She has helped all four of us though some rough times this last year.
    Thank you, Narelle Green.

  26. I have made the quilt already for a special little girl Molly. Molly is the daughter of a friend of my daughters and was born with Downs Syndrome. A very special and much loved little girl.

  27. I would love to make a quilt for my darling Daughter who has just realised that not EVERYTHING has to be black! She is now loving brighter colours so this giveaway would be perfect for her. Thank you.

  28. I am making a dr. seuss quilt for my sister-in-law who teaches kindergarten and an i spy quilt (and matching game) for my daughters daycare. Not much time left to get them finished so I think it's going to be a busy weekend.

  29. I did make quilts for Christmas…My 2 sisters, my Mom, my son, my daughter and still need to make the quilt for my inlaws…Yikes! I'm running out of time.

  30. I usually do have a quilt for someone for Christmas. This year I have a lap quilt for my friend, we have been friends since kindergarden, that is a long time! Hope you visit my blog and enter for a chance to win my prize.

  31. I am making a quilt this year, albeit just a rag quilt. It is for my lovely daughter who loves throws and all things soft. So, I am making her a flannel rag quilt measuring 72×60…….better get to work!

  32. I would have made it for my father in law, but he just passed away a few weeks ago. After quite a few deaths of late, I think I would make if for my best friend of 40+ years. We rarely get to see each other due to distance. I would be broken hearted if I lost her too.

  33. I actually made 2 for presents this year. One for oldest son and wife and the other for our granddaughter. I still have 2 more to make but those will be for next Christmas.
    Love the fabric. Thanks for the giveaway. Good Luck to all.

  34. I just finished making a quilt for my niece. 2.5 yrs ago she sent me all her soccer/football jerseys to make her a quilt. I finished it this week. I drew her name in the family draw so I had to get it done. Turned out great!

  35. For my sister who started me on this whole crazy quilting adventure, she also feeds my stash and has made me several cuddly quilts. I have never made one for her but I would love to!

  36. Well, I have already made my christmas quilts…I have 5 grand children and I don't see them very often. So…I started this summer and have made them each a twin size quilt. I designed it to their likes, (one likes Minnie Mouse, so I got matching fabric…etc) I have to FMQ the last one and then I have all 5 done and ready to wrap. I hope that every night they cover with the quilt, they will think of me, Nanny, and send me love and kisses in their hearts!

  37. Such a beautiful layer cake! If I were to make a quilt for someone this Christmas, it would be for an elderly neighbour who always complains of being cold. She has one but it'sbeen quite a few years, so I think perhaps a new one is in order.

  38. I am making a quilt for someone this Christmas! It's for one of my favorite aunt's. She's out of work and lives in a cold climate. She's turned down her thermostat to save money, so she'll definitely be using this quilt to stay warm.

  39. I would like to give a christmas quilt to my mother (76 years old) , she is very fond of my quilting and would really appriciate such gift.
    What a lovely fabrics you will give away. I love to take a change to win those, thank you for the opprotunity. Have fun with this bloghop party!

  40. It would be for my son. He got out of the Army in June and is heading off to college in a few weeks. He says he doesn't need a new quilt but I'd still like to make one for him. I have his old uniforms and would like to use them in a quilt somehow.

  41. If I were to make a quilt this Christmas it would be for one of my daughters. I have some tops completed and hope to have them quilted for them soon but not by this Christmas. I love the fabric in your giveaway.

  42. For all 3 of my daughters-in-law. They always feel cold and would love a warm quilt they could share when they will be visiting this Christmas!
    Best regards, Marjo B-W

  43. Great give away. Thanks.
    I am making quilts for my daughters but only one is nearly finished so I thought it wouldn't be fair to give only one at Christmas so I will wait til next year and just give them when they are done.

  44. I would love to make a Christmas quilt for me, is that greedy? hehe. I have been wanting to make a Christmas quilt to have out for the holidays for awhile.

    Thank you Jane for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win some beautiful fabric.

    usairdoll(at)gmail(dot)com

  45. The fabrics seem very cheery to me – I would make one for someone who needs cheering up and a big quilty hug all at the same time. My husband's father is gravely ill atm – I think I need a quilt for all of us.

  46. I have made a quilt for someone. A woman at our church who is a real giver to all. I knew she loved Christmas and decorating. I made a label that said Handmaiden of the Lord. I gave it already so she could use it all Dec.

  47. I actually did make a quilt {sort of… quilted table topper, that count?} and it was for my cousin who also happens to be my best friend. If I were to make a full sized quilt it would be for her

  48. I'd like to make my seasonal quilt for my house for snuggling under while watching tv on the couch. So it would be for my whole family. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  49. I think it would have to be for my nana who is 90 and a bit! She reads her ebook all day and would love to snuggle under it while reading though I have already given her one but it doesn't match anything in her hosue and though I know she loves i, she hasn't got it out due to that fact. Oh well!!! Great giveaway!

  50. Hi Jane, I love your layer cake, I think it would have to go to my niece, she is moving to Sydney from Bali and will need a warm blankie!
    I live not far from you I live near Noosa! Nice to meet you!

  51. I am hoping to finish one for my niece and my mum, the niece has more hope as her top is done! I have already finished one for my friend who was unwell but is better now it is finally done! So it will be a Christmas quilt now 😉
    Thanks for the giveaway and lovely to meet another 'Aussie' in this world of quilting blogs!

  52. Gorgeous fabric. I'd love to make a quilt for my friend, Viv who was also my boss, who loves quilts. I don't think she can thread a needle. Merry Christmas!

  53. I would love to make a quilt for my daughter who lives across the country from us. We haven't seen her in a year, and I know she would love to have one of my quilts to cudle up with. Maybe I can get one done in January.

  54. I am actually making a quilt for my brother for Christmas. The top is finished but I'm not sure I'll get it quilted in time. I need some little elves to help me! Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. Well I tried to get a quilt done for Christmas for my table but I've not finished it yet. I did get a table runner made for my daughter and helped my grand daughter with one. But to answer your question, I would love to make a large warm quilt for my hubby.

  56. Wow, that's easy. I really wanted to make a quilt for my father, but I've been so busy that the idea only came to me last week. He is losing his eyesight through macular degeneration (he has it pretty bad)and so I wanted him to be able to 'see' my quilting handiwork while he still can. But then reality set in and there's no way I would find the fabric, cut, piece, quilt and bind in 2 weeks, along with everything else this season entails. So, I will make it in January for just a special surprise gift!

  57. I made a lap quilt which I was really pleased with…My mother is in the late stages of Dementia and when I showed it to her there was so much pleasure on her face I knew I had to wrap it up and give it to her for Christmas. I hope I see that childlike delight again when she unwraps her gift on Christmas day.

  58. This year I made an Advent calendar for my #1 daughter and her kids. Each year we draw names for birthdays and Christmas for family members. She asked me for one about nine years ago and finally I got her name. An Advent calendar isn't much use unless you get it on the first of December and hers arrived just the day before … and now the kids are taking turns putting those decorations on the traa each day.

  59. I would like to make a quilt for my mother. She has been ill and I live 100 miles away and she may find comfort in the quilt when she is resting and when I can't be with her. betcrawford at verizon dot net

  60. I'd make a quilt for my best friend and business partner (who lives a thousand miles away, literally). A big blue and gold quilt for her bed. One day I'll get to it….

  61. Hello from Minnesota! What a great giveaway! I'm making at least one quilt for Christmas but what I've been working on yesterday and today is a little crosses quilt for a baby due in January (in grey, yellow, and blue.)

  62. How nice. I just posted a Quilt to my oldest son i started it last year ,but did not get it finished up until this year .So off it went a week ago,he will have it in time for Christmas

  63. Haven't made a big quilt for years. Been dabbling in clothes the last couple of years. But probably would be to finish ones I started loooonnngg time ago, and one for my bed would be among them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  64. I guess I would make a quilt for myself, my quilting is not so good yet as to make one for another person… maybe next year
    saruqa at gmail dot com

    and thanks for the giveaway!

  65. Well I DID make a quilt – a Krazy Kat Kwilt for my MIL that I just finished hand stitching this weekend. I started it in March when I had almost zero experience. Now I think I'll have to make something for somebody next year too but I have no idea what it will be. Thank you for the giveaway!

  66. Iwould make a quilt for my Line Dancing Instructor Pauline as all the money from her classes (she takes 5 a week) goes to Relay for Life. She is such a generous lady with her time. Merry christmas to you and yours

  67. Hi there!

    If I was to make a quilt for someone for Christmas I would make it for my 90 grandmother. I haven't made her a quilt yet and I've always loved visiting her place and sleeping under her 200lb crazy quilt (ok, it wasn't that heavy but when your 8 y.o. it's heavy!).

    Thanks for the chance.

  68. For my hubby, his cold feet are breath taking….literally! Seriously, though, he has a quilt coming for Valentines Day. Til then, he better put wool socks on his list to Santa!

  69. I finished one for my grandson that is back from quilter and needs binding. I have just finished quilt tops for both of my parents and need to layer and tie them off. Thank you for this giveaway.

  70. I am working on a quilt this Christmas but unfortunately it will not be finished it time. It is for my niece (and god-daughter) who is leaving us this summer to join the Air Force. I've always made her quilts, but I want to make a nice, large, snuggly quilt for her to take with her.

  71. At Christmas I like to make quilts and donate them to our local agency that is spearheading our local Christmas helping programs. Then I know someone will enjoy it, even if it isn't perfect. Thanks.

  72. I am almost finished with a crimson and white houndstooth quilt for my uncle… He's a huge Alabama fan, so I thought it would be a good gift for him. I'm putting the binding on tomorrow and giving it to him on Saturday. So excited! :)

  73. I actually AM making a quilt this Christmas… and it's for me! I have needed something for my bed for so long and I am finally inspired! Thanks for the lovely giveaway and Merry Christmas!

  74. I would love to make a quilt for my eldest daughter who's 16, but she hates my quilting :(( Funny thing tho, she is often snuggled up under one and every time I see that I say…Oh I must make you your own quilt" and she not so politely says no!!!

  75. I have completed three throw size quilts for Christmas this year and am working on the 4th. The receipients will be my mother, sister and two daughters. It's going to be a VERY special Christmas.
    lisamcgriff(at)hotmail(dot)com

  76. I have made quilts for my five sisters as Christmas presents. One every year until all were made and give. It was really hard on the sister who was the last to receive hers. She loves snow and I made hers a snow scene with pine trees, kids playing in the snow, houses, a barn , sheep and other animals. Because she was last I put all my creative juices into it and she was stunned and shed tears of joy.

  77. My nephew's birthday is the 20th and I'd be happy to get his quilt done for him by then, but no way that's going to happen. :-) I haven't even started cutting the fabric yet. 😀

    BTW – My brother and sister-in-law live near Brisbane. :-) I live in Texas.

  78. I'd make it for my husband – he is awesome and is in hospital right now with our 3yr old while I'm at home with sleeping girls. Hopefully they will be allowed home soon.

  79. I would definitely make a quilt for the lady across the street. She has one son that lives in Santa Rose, CA and a daughter that lives near Gardnerville, Nevad. She is all alone and I think that she would be so grateful to have a homemade quilt to wrap herself in and keep warm in these cold rainy and windy days and nights. Thank you for the chance to win the Layer Cake. I am sure I could find a quilt to make using this. Happy Holidays.

  80. I also made a quilt this Christmas for my granddaughter, but then that's not surprising since she seems to want to own any quilt I make that has pink or purple in it.

  81. I am making several different quilty things for Christmas. This year my 35 year old hubby started dialysis and things have been really rough… emotionally, physically, and financially. A few good people have helped us out in so many ways, I've been quilting up tabletoppers, tomorrow I'm doing mug rugs, and a few other quilty things to say thank you and Merry Christmas.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  82. Fantastic giveaway. I've quilted a couple of table toppers and will give them to my daughter. If I were to make a quilt, I would make a kingsize one and give it to my husband. We need a new quilt for our bed – I'm just afraid of making a king size quilt!

  83. I wanted to make a quilt for each of my Grandchildren but things just haven't worked out to allow me time to devote to doing so. I'll be starting soon to make the first of the three so I can hopefully have hers done by her first birthday in February. The other two I'll have until August to finish theirs.

  84. My eldest son is next on my list for a quilt (and it should have been done already…) Thanks for the opportunity on a great draw and have a Merry Christmas. bonnielarson58(at)gmail(dot)com.

  85. I'd really like to make a quilt for my mother, but she has just moved and seriously downsized, and she want to make a fresh start. She also wants to settle in before she makes and decisions about colours, style, etc. I want to make sure that I make her something that she really wants, so I guess I'll be waiting until next Christmas. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity.

  86. If I would do a quilt for someone, it would be for my son and his girfriend, special for their new home. They moved from here back to Switzerland in August and we miss them a lot. Probably I'll do one before they come to visit in April. Thank you for chance.

  87. Love that Layer Cake.
    So far I've made three table runners for the Preschool Teacher and the bus driver; Three tote bags for my mother, MIL and sister; and and working on a Fairy panel quilt for my 6 year old.

  88. If I were going to make a quilt for someone this Christmas, I'd make one for my daughter Helen. She is having some pretty severe mental issues right now and if I thought she'd accept a quilt from me, I'd make one for her, a hug from Ma.

  89. The quilt would be for my dear sweet moma and the next one I actually make is gonna be for her. I am working on one but no where near finished with it. Thank you for a chance to enter your giveaway. That is very pretty fabric you have chosen.

  90. I made 2 quilts this year. One for my daughter and the first one for my son inlaw. After 3 years of being married to my daughter he is finally quilt worthy:)

  91. IF I had the time, I'd make my husband his Steelers quilt. I have the fabric & I've made just about everyone else a quilt, poor man is just wait, wait, wait for his quilt :(

  92. Oh, definitely for my long-suffering husband! Everyone else in the family (and extended family) sleeps under a quilt made my me except for us. He keeps wondering, "where's OUR quilt?"

  93. All of the quilts I made for Christmas this year were for our local veteran's hospital. Oh, I also made a Grinch quilt for my brother and I am told that his cat loves it!

  94. If it were for this coming Christmas it would be a doll since that is all I'd have time for. Next Christmas I'd probably make one for the bestie. She's starting the divorce process soon and needs a little hand made goodness.

  95. If I was to make a quilt this Christmas it would be for my friend Barbara. She has had a very tiring year looking after an elderly friend of ours, arranging a good nursing home for him, visiting him in hospital and being there in his last few hours.

  96. I'm making quilts for our dogs this year. So, I think that counts! Next time I really need to make one for my DH, he's been left out of all the homemade gifts around here. It's always the grand kids or someone else. Need to make him something special. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

  97. Tengo una querida amiga que utilizaría una colcha navideña .Toda su casa es un homenaje a estas fiestas.La comencé pero me falta tiempo y las altas temperaturas no ayudan . Tendría que estar cosiendo ahora mismo.Cariños.
    Me encantan sus bloques desesperados.
