Come visit the farm and we'll talk quilting...actually, you'll talk quickly and I'll listen because I'm a new quilter and don't know all that much about quilting. I can, however, talk sheep /grin/.

You have many great tutorials, but I think my favorite is your Little Zipper Gag tutorial (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/01/lil-zipper-bag.html). Perfect item to use up scraps and also makes great gifts.

Nancy Sue said...

Hi Vickie, Thank you for this giveaway and congrats on your 600th post! Wowser! I have several "favorite" tutorials that you do, but the most recent I read, was the pincushion. I never have a problem with your lighting or directions with your tutorials. Love the pincushion! I need to push away from the computer, and sew up a couple!

Nancy Sue said...

My favorite fabric style right now is the 1930 reproductions. I'm working on quilt for my brother and new sister in law, and am using my parents' quilt of 1930 fabrics as inspiration. But the more you look for them, the more you see them. Just like getting a new car, suddenly you see the make of the car everywhere! Thank you for your very generous giveaway!

My fave fabric style is anything bright and pretty. I love the new pure. It represents my life. I think I love bright colors because I live in Michigan and it gets so cold and dreary here. Bliss is gorgeous too. Just anything bright and cheery.

I also like anything with a wildlife theme :)
