My friend Shawn is my favorite long-arm quilter! She quilted my Metro Rings quilt, and did a fabulous job!!

Danice said...

I have been quilting for just one year, so still learning a lot. Not having a long arm machine, sometimes it can get difficult to reach. I do not have any special quilting rulers, so would love to win :)

Philippa Gelinas said...

Would love to try these rulers....hopefully soon o will have a long arm of my own!

Janie Coulter said...

I enjoy the creative process of quilting my own projects

pkmegs said...

I have quilted my own quilts, have not used a long-arm quilter yet.

Linda D said...

I have a long arm machine waiting for me to come from Texas. It's been sitting there for a log time until I can complete my renovations on my house. I'm getting closer to this so I'm hoping to have it delivered soon. I've been eyeing this ruler so it would be a fantastic start up for the long arm.

Linda Swanekamp said...

I am just learning to long arm and have used a straight ruler. I would love to use these rulers for curves.

Lisa Lisa said...

I quilt all of my quilts on my domestic machine but am so ready to take some lessons and buy my own long arm. Sometimes I just want more than straight lines, which isn't always easy (for me) on my domestic.

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

I have been amazed at the quilts made using this ruler and really want one of my own. Longarm quilting for years, I still love to learn new techniques and methods. Thanks so much!

Trish Bytheway said...

I LOVE your quilts! As a new quilter I'd like to incorporate your rulers in my designs!

Frances said...

The essential accessory for Twisted Blossom. I can't wait to use one!

Cathy Warren said...

Just discovered QCR at the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids,Michigan. Bought the template and some patterns. Would love to have the longarm rulers to finish these projects.

Tom and Jane said...

I have not done much quilting. If I use my sewing machine I did straight line quilting. If I use my quilds longarm I just do free from. I can use all the help I can get.

twodraftmom said...

I have been long arm quilting for five years. I only have two rulers. I'd love this to be my third! Thanks

Theresa said...

I quilt on my domestic machine and these rulers would be great to mark with. Pick me!

Debbie B said...

I do my own longarm quilting. I love your patterns and also Recently adjusted a Zen Chic pattern called OHO using the QCR. I would love to have these rulers to quilt my Quilt top! :-)

Belva said...

I quilt on a domestic machine and a bernina on a frame. I would love to get better at quilting with rulers. I have two quilt tops (using the quick curve rulers) that need to be quilted. These rulers would be perfect!

Needled Mom said...

I'm fairly new to longarm quilting and still mosting quilting with pantographs as I try other techniques.

Nancy A said...

I quilt on a Nolting Fun Quilter and am just starting using rulers.

Nathalie Rübsteck said...

Would love to learn more quilting, still at the beginning.

Jean S said...

Always looking for good tools to use with my longarm. These look really useful.

Andrea R said...

I just started doing FMW maybe 5 years ago, but have been quilting for.. oh... thirty or so....

I finally feel like I'm "good" at it, and would love to get a longarm someday. I am just getting into ruler work but don't have any specifically for the task - so I would LOVE to learn!

Lois said...

I have been wanting to try a ruler. Now I just do basic free motion designs. Lois

Arlene T said...

I would love to learn to FMQ! Past results were pitiful, I'm better at digitizing a design and letting my embroidery machine do the quilting for me.

Heather J said...

I have had some great experiences renting a long arm machine by the day. I have also used the services of many longarmers and have been pleased with their work on my quilts.

Glynette said...

So far I have not had much success with self quilting.
I continue to practice on smaller quilts but send out anything large or special.

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

I am learning to quilt my own quilts. I do mine on domestic machines. I figure practice, practice, practice and I will get better.

Sherry said...

I have not quilted my own quilts, I have my favorite quilter Leslie quilt them for me. I have quilted a simple quilt that I made for my granddaughter a few years ago, that went pretty well but it is something I should give a try again soon.

Linda said...

HI,just learning! Thanks for sharing!

Monika said...

Ii quilt all my own quilts on my domestic machine. One day I would love to get a Sweet 16 or similar, when I have money, space and time! As I am starting to venture into ruler work, this would be perfect, especially for marking curves on my Metro Rings quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway!

Janet said...

I quilt my own quilts on my domestic machine. I strive to learn something new with each quilt, and eventually I get it done. Someday, I hope to own a mid-arm. I love it! Janet

Kristi said...

I've been longarm quilting for about 9 years. Just starting to break away from quilting nothing but pantographs. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lisa Boyer said...

I used to quilt on a homemade longarm--wood and sprinkler pipes and metal skate wheels! My husband is the best. Now I own a Gammill, which is definitely a step up, but I miss my husband-built contraption. Love that man.

What Comes Next? said...

I am so wanting to get one of these sets! I'm a domestic machine quilter who quilts with long arm rulers who is just starting to quilt on a long arm.

Lynn said...

Ooooo - I'd love to win these. Thanks for the chance! I've made quite a few of your patterns but have only quilted one so far. (The rest of them are in my pile of tops waiting to be quilted) I used my Quick Curve Ruler to mark curves on the one I quilted. I would love to have these rulers to use instead of having to mark. I quilt my own quilts on my HandiQuilter Sweet 16. It is a sit-down long-arm. It was all I could afford without having to quilt for other people and the only one that would fit in my sewing room at the time I was shopping. Now there are a few more of these types of machines on the market, but I've been very happy with mine.

Donna Holton said...

I am going to quilt for a non- family member! Kind of scary but I love my long arm and have quilted for myself, my mom a,d for charity.

SoozeM said...

I am a long arm quilter and haven't done much ruler work, would love to try this ruler to see if I can change that :)

Lydia Baker said...

I quilted my own quilt when I first started FMQ and won a 1st place in the fair and it went on to the Regionals and won a 1st place there!!!! I was over the moon with excitement!!

Sue said...

I would really love these! I am a domestic quilter and these would really be helpful. I received the ruler foot for my machine last Christmas and am really wanting to try this process. Thanks for the chance to win!

Donna Cutting said...

This winter I plan to learn to use my domestic machine to machine quilt. I am sewing up a few UFO's and am excited to learn about these rulers your are so generously giving away. Thanks so much.

Patty Sliney said...

I am a novice mid-arm quilter, and I haven't been able to set up my mid-arm machine since moving back to California, but I have found an incredible long arm quilter - Teresa Silva, Quilting is my Bliss, http://quiltingismybliss.blogspot.com/ . She is a wonderful longarm quilter, and did a fantastic job on my niece's baby quilt! So glad to have found her for some of my very special and precious quilts!

katyquilts said...

I have been long arm quilting for a couple years now. I just love it! I don't have a business but quilt LOTS of Quilts of Valor. Thanks for the chance to win! This will go well with my QCR!

Life in the Dog House said...

I've had my longarm for almost 2 years now and I just love how it has allowed me to be even more creative with my free motion quilting. I would be thrilled to win your ruler and use it to enhance future quilts.

Amy W said...

There are too many great quilters to mention my favorite. Instagram has been a great way to see them and find more. I have been doing some piecing with the Sew Kind of Wonderful rulers; I will be ready to get them on the longarm soon.

Lake Grandma said...

Just received my Sweetsixteen. No rullers yet. I have your template and would love to finish off this UFO with your ruller. Thank you for the chance to win.

marcella said...

I'm feeling pretty good about my machine quilting on my home machine. I took a long arm class at my LQS and now can rent it by the hour to quilt my own quilts. That will take some time and practice, but it's sure fun!

Deb B said...

Oh my! wouldn't I like to play with a side kick ruler! I think it would be invaluable to have one in my tool kit to use with my longarm quilting machine! With inspiration provided by you, what can I say! I'm sure it would be HOURS of fun!
Thanks!

Pauline Michaud said...

My favourite longarm quilter has to be Judi Madsen! She is amazing. Love how her work enriched every quilt she touches.

Gwen Wehner said...

We are planning to build a new house next year - and I intend to have a dedicated quilting space for a long arm or mid arm. Might as well start collecting fun stuff like your long arm rulers while I wait!

Jean said...

Love the QCR patterns! I've just started quilting with a domestic machine on a frame. I hope to have a long arm, someday. I love quilts with ruler work and have been doing a little experimenting.

quiltqueen29 said...

I quilt on my Bernina 150. I am just getting into ruler work on a domestic machine and would love to try your ruler!

Patrick said...

I love my Bernina 440 QE! The stitch regulator changed my quilting life!!!

Anonymous said...

I hand quilt and sell quilts...for about 30 years now. But am learning machine quilting, and having fun!!!! I have the
Tiara, which is the site own long arm...loving it, but not great at it...lol. Would love this ruler!!!!

Michael said...

I machine many of my quilts on my 65 year old domestic Elna. I'm just beginning to try ruler work and would like your ruler to match your template ruler!

Karen said...

Time is what I need for all the quilts I plan to make on my wish list.

Stephanie said...

I do my quilting on my home sewing machine. I would LOVE a long arm. I have never paid or had anyone else quilt for me, but I have thought about it a lot. I would like to, maybe someday!

Debbie at The Quilt Journal said...

I quilt my own on a sit down longarm and use rulers all the time!! Would love to try yours!!!

Michelle said...

I do my own quilting on my A1Elite. Before that I machine quilted on my old Singer. I love machine quilting because I have so many quilts I want to to make, I could never get them all quilted by hand! I would love a Sidekick ruler!

Marina Segalovitch said...

I bought my Gammill 5 months ago and I love quilting on it. I quilted about 15 charity quilts. I also teach FMQ on domestique machine at our local quilt shop.

linynp said...

I so love your quilts! They are inspiring and take me to new challenges. Now to quit them- I need more work ;)

Kathleen RosePrairieQuilts said...

I only do hand quilting. Otherwise I send them out to be machine quilted

Kathryn said...

I made a new friend at a workshop, and found that she was a longarmer. She's done just fantastic work for me. It pays to always be friendly and make new friends.

Karen said...

I love to hand quilt my own quilts but have also learned to quilt on my Viking Mega Quilter, My next challenge is ruler work on a domestic - it's a steep learning curve but I know the results will be worth it.

Michele Hester said...

I have a millenium and have gained confidence with pantos....I struggle working with rulers, but am continuing to try. Thanks for sharing, so people like me can learn!

Celeste Delostrinos said...

I quilt on a domestic sewing machine. It would be great to use a ruler like this.

Sylvia said...

I love quilting my own quilts! I'd love to try rulers on my domestic.

Pedal Sew Lightly said...

I quilt with a Juki. I have a grace frame that was gifted to me. I've never had a quilt done by a long arm quilter but my favorite would be my SIL.

GranChris said...

I want a LA but only have a Brother 1500 that sometimes misbehaves like today. Most of the time though it is great.

Stephanie said...

Sadly I had to sell my quilting machine when I moved from Idaho to Phoenix. I am hoping to buy another one again soon and starting my business again. I would absolutely love to own your ruler set. Thanks

Amanda said...

I have a mid arm quilter that I use. It has worked wonderfully for me.

Nancy aydlett said...

Have been patiently waiting for school to begin, so that I could start my Metro Rings !!
Would love these to quilt my quilt with!! I have my own Gammill long arm.
My favorite Longarmer is so hard to choose because there are soooo many talented ones out there!!
Love your patterns and your Blog!

Debbie said...

I was going to say, it's 5:00 here in Texas.....am I the first up? But then, I saw everyone else's post. We have some early birds. I'm a relatively new quilter past 4 year years and have only free motioned on my machine a few small projects. Would like to learn some new techniques. My favorite LAQ right now is Judy Dry. She does a wonderful job.

Terri Faust said...

I have a longarm and quilt my own quilts. It would be awesome to have your ruler for all those curves! Your designs are always beautiful!

Kim Young said...

I have a long arm myself but if asked who my favorite long arm quilter is it would have to be you. I have been watching your blog since before you discontinued taking customer quilts and I love your work. Now if I could find the time to start your Metro Ring quilt I'd be super happy and using the acrylic template on it would be so great!

Kate Wellen said...

I am learning to quilt some on my domestic machine but send my quilts to Dan a local long arm quilter

Margaret West said...

I have been professionally quilting for about 10 years. I have a passion for my job. I love the whole process. I am just now learning the value of using rulers. I have many favorite quilters. You are one of them. The thing I like most is the creativity of them and the inspiration they give me. I love learning and achieving and growing as a professional.

Stitchin At Home said...

I quilt all my own quilts on my domestic machine, but would love the ruler if just for marking purposes.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win these awesome rulers. I would sure enjoy them when I use them for my baby quilts.
My favourite long armer is Lynda at Always in Stitches here in Prince Edward Island Canada. She is just the best!
Enjoy your week!

Adrienne said...

My favourite long armer is Terri Watson in Grand Rapids. I would love to make the Metro Ring quilt and the ruler would be the best place to start. Your work is very inspiring. Thanks for the opportunity to be in with a grin.

memeenh said...

Your designs are wonderful and I would love to have your quilting rulers to use on my quilts. I just do basic quilting on my quilts and think your rulers would help me move outside my comfort zone!

Rebecca Allen said...

Reading some of the other comments has been fun. Many share the same dream to excel in their quilting. I would use this ruler set toward that end.

helen-mary said...

I am my own favorite longarm quilter... ha ha. I would love this set - I could use it when I finish my current project from your book.

Hilda said...

I've had my longarm for eight years now. I mostly stick to pantographs, but I'd love to win your rulers, and try my hand at doing some ruler work. What a great giveaway.

LeAnne said...

I've been quilting on my LQS's longarm for quite a few years, but when you only get on it a few times a year, it's hard to become good at it. My sister just got a longarm, and I anticipate I'll be spending a lot more time quilting. She started doing ruler work on her sit-down machine.

Buncobuddy said...

I'm a beginner and have only stitched in the ditch. I need help!

Vicki in MN said...

I have been longarming for 10 years, but there is always someone out there that I admire. Jenny you are one of them! You have inspired me ever since I first saw your blog a few years ago :-) I love using your quick curve ruler and the sidekick would be icing on the cake!

Ruby Rose said...

I would love to have a longarm, but not enough cash in my purse. So I do what I can on my sewing machine and being able to do designs would be wonderful.

Pam said...

My friend Connie does my quilts when I use you patterns. I quilt my small quilts

Shauna said...

I quilt all my quilts. We live overseas in Japan (Active Duty Air Force family) so I had to learn to do it all myself.

Jayne said...

Thank you for the chance to win! I machine quilt 99% of my quilts! I admire anyone who has a longarm, does longarm, knows someone who longarm quilts., is thinking about longarm quilting....see where I'm going?!

Connie Kresin Campbell said...

My neighbor is a awesome longarm quilter! Great giveaway!

Mimi said...

I got my Millie in early 2014 and am making a big dent in all the UFOs that have been sitting around. My ruler stash is very small and my thread stash is growing. So far I have done just a few custom quilting jobs, but mostly pantos. I would love to win some rulers so I can try different things.

Bari B said...

Forgive me if this is a duplicate, my account is acting up! I have a longarm and love using rulers, so would love to have this ruler to finish up my QCR project!

Dot said...

My favorite long arm quilter is my friend Ann. I am working on improving my quilting on my domestic sewing machine. Love your give away.

Lani said...

Hello!
I an a long arm quilter and quilt me own quilts when I have time. I love both piecing and quilting. I love the way you quilt your quilts. They always turn out beautiful!

Bonnie58 said...

I am looking at purchasing a long arm machine and would love to have some suggestions as to what to look for. Thanks for sharing

happygoluckyquilter said...

I usually quilt my quilts by hand but bought a new machine and have now machine quilted two with straight line and wavy stitches. I'd love to do more so this ruler would be great.

Valli said...

I'm so inspired by the amazing ruler work done by longarmers. I've begun using rulers for some of the free motion quilting I do on my domestic machine and would love to try your ruler too.

Seams Sew Together said...

I have been longarming for about 8 years and love all
aspects of it. Your quilts make me push myself to
do beautiful work, like yourself. The rulers would be a bonus.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Quilty said...

Quilting is the funniest part of making quilts! I would love to try these great rulers!

Melissa Corry said...

I love to quilt all of my quilts and love all the inspiration I get from you amazing ladies!! I am still learning to quilt with rulers, and am pushing outside my comfort zone to try and get better at them ;)

Bari B said...

Forgive me if this is a duplicate, my account is acting up! I have a longarm and love using rulers, so would love to have this ruler to finish up my QCR project!

Bonny Belford said...

Just bought a tiarra ll and new to quilting my own quilts, but have purchased a class on crafty and eager to get started

"The real" MarthaSue said...

I have a wonderful laq - Gwenda- but then I started experimenting with fmq on my domestic...and I fell in love!! I love your patterns and made the table runner that came with the ruler....but couldn't keep the curve when fmq- I would love this sidekick!

Karen said...

I have a longarm but consider myself a beginner. I hope to take more classes n the use of rulers. Would love to win yours! Thanks.

Mary said...

I've been watching your ruler work for some time now and am in awe of your work. Recently I have started using rulers on a longarm. It is so much fun. Someday my work may be almost as smooth as yours.

Chris Cole said...

I have a longarm machine, and I love to finish my own quilts: I feel accomplished from start to finish. I look for inspiration on quiting blogs, Pinterest, quilt shows.

Frederique said...

I have a domestic machine, and my dream is to have a longarm someday! Thanks for this great giveaway!

Kris said...

I too dream about a longarm but in the meantime I keep working at improving on my home machine.

Mary said...

I have had a long arm for 5 years, love it. I wanted to be able to do the quilting any way I chose, and not have to pay someone else and be limited by what I could afford. Most of my quilts are done as custom design, with rulers. I do a few client quilts, for good friends, but mostly, the long arm is to do my own quilts and not for a business.

Barbara B said...

Just bought the Bernina Q20 sit-down long arm. Would love to add this tool to my toolbox, thanks for the chance.

Tami @ Lemon Tree Tales said...

I've had my longarm for 1 1/2 years and I tried out the ruler base for the first time last month. It was a blast! They were just for some echos and straight line rays but it was an eye opening experience. Now I want to experiment some more with rulers. Before the rulers it was all pantos all the time. The sidekick rulers would be awesome to play with if I won. :-)

chrissie wunderlich said...

i am lucky enough to have my very own longarm, and i have been eyeballing this ruler for a while. thanks for the chance to win!

Lou said...

I am own a longarm:) I quilt for others and sometimes for myself:) ha ha!!! Have been looking at this ruler for your patterns I have made:) I hope one day to get to quilt them!

I am just learning to quilt my own with a mid arm quilt machine.

Lori S said...

I am a longarm quilter, and have an Urban Birthday too pieced and waiting to be quilted. Winning these rulers would definitely get me going!

suesinger said...

I quilt all my quilts onot a DMS. Favorite quilter is Georgian Hawley

Ileana said...

I have been quilting for more than 10 years and did all my quilting in my home machine. Two years ago I got my long arm and I love it. It was a challenge but I think I have tame that stinker. Love not to have to baste my quilts, I'm not as young as I think and not having to be in my knees in the floor basting and fighting the quilt in the home machine is like being in heaven. Love quilting it is my therapy.

bmck97004 said...

I am learning to longarm my own quilts. I started with a short-arm on a table-top frame, and quickly realized that I would be so much happier with a long arm. Fortunately, my loving husband agreed with me, so I'm now learning (do we ever stop learning....) to quilt my own quilts and I love it!

Kathy Harris said...

My friend Kathleen quilts many of my quilts. She used to be just a computer design quilter, but has recently taken classes from two renowned long arm teachers so is ready to expand her techniques. I'd love to give her this ruler with one of my quilt tops made using your patterns and let her show me her new skills.

Nancy said...

I have a Sweet Sixteen machine that I am just learning to use. The Sidekick ruler would be wonderful to have especially to use with the QCR. I'm using that now to make a table runner so I can get more quilting practice.

Nichole said...

As a relatively new quilter, I still have much to learn, but I love doing it all myself. Doing each step always stretches my abilities. Would love to win these to challenge myself even farther!

carol mcnab said...

Would love to win the ruler. I tend to do both machine and hand quilting on my quilts as I do not own a
long arm quilt machine. Thanks for the chance to win.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I have an HQ16 and don't get enough time to really practice, so rulers are a life saver! I've found so much inspiration from the quilting designs shown on the blog--thanks for sharing!

Charlotte Key said...

My first quilt was a quilted jacket since I was a garment sewer but I have since given up garments for quilts all the way.

Carol said...

I've been making quilt tops and trying to get the hang of free motion quilting. Let's just say it wasn't going too well. I couldn't relax enough... then the other day a friend blessed me with her old machine quilting frame. I put my Singer 301 on it and suddenly things are looking so much better! I'd love to try using a ruler. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mom C said...

There are such amazing long arm quilters, I stare with open mouth amazement.I took a class from cindy Needham, heavenly! Love Judi of Green Fairy Quilts, stunning don't even dare to aspire. But for help, support and encouragement my favorite is Melissa of Happy Quilting Melissa, my DIL. I don't do a lot with rulers but I know that's my next big step and I'm determined that this year my quilting will be more structured and less freeform. Thanks

Cory said...

My FMQ journey started on an older Bernina set into a table for a flat surface. I quilted a king size quilt on it. I have graduated to a Sweet 16 sit-down machine and love it. I am loving discovering and playing with all of the long arm rulers so I would love to win this set of your rulers. Thank you for the opportunity to win. Take care and God bless, Cory.

Luz2Quilt said...

I enjoy the entire process of quilting and trying new techniques with new tools. I would love add your ruler to my toolkit. Thank you for the opportunity.

corina said...

I've always quilted my own quilts, tending to stick with simple linear designs. Recently I purchased a foot for my DSM that allows me to use longarm rulers. Would love to be able to use yours! My favorite long arm quilter is Judi Madsen from Green Fairy Quilts. Her work is amazing!

Mama Pea said...

Jenny is my favorite long-arm quilter. I love her work. I just got a long-arm and am a newbie. Will be purchasing your rulers. Would love some tutorials on using them effectively! 😍😘

Forever Designing said...

I have a metro medallion that's waiting for just the right fabric for an outer border. I'm then going to quilt it for myself for Christmas!

sandra said...

I have been waiting for the moment I had the nerve to quilt one of my Sew wonderful quilt tops. Maybe this is it! Fingers crossed!

Gill said...

I've quilted all my own quilts, mainly simple designs!

Diane E W said...

I've been wanting a set of these rulers. I have ordered the Metro Ring pattern and need these rulers to quilt it, but I think they will come in very handy when I quilt other quilts on my APQS Millie.

Kathy Whetstine said...

I'm a mid-beginner and still have trouble with rulemaking on me, etc.BUT, I'm getting into it full time now, so need a new fancy ruler, LOL

Carol Kuse said...

I love your rulers. Sure would like to add these to the ones I have. Thank you for this opportunity.

Alice Ronne said...

I'm definitely a beginner but I hope to start doing more. Would love to win your drawing! Thanks. akronne17@gmail.com

Jackie said...

I am in the process of learning machine quilting, I'd love to win your ruler. Thanks for the chance.

grapenutquilter said...

I am just starting to do my own free motion quilting on my 1974 Sears Kennore. I am practicing on doll quilts for my niece's. To have doll quilts and table runners professionally done is very expensive, however worth it for larger quilts. Thanks for the chance! mmsm@embarqmail.com

Kim said...

I have quilted my own quilts. I enjoy free motion quilting because it's quick. I'm still trying to get myself to work with rulers because of the many beautiful designs I've seen.

Leeanne said...

hello! It's me Leeanne down here in little New Zealand home of Hobbitville! I am a professional long arm quilter (www.quiltmekiwi.blogspot.com ) but have itching to try your quilting ruler. I have your ruler for cutting and several of your patterns. Thanks for the chance.

mlhummy said...

I'm an experienced sewist and costumer but I'm just finding my way into quilting. It's very new to me.

Pattie Crum said...

I always stress out when I'm quilting, it's my least favorite part of the process. once I get started and a bit of the quilt done then I relax and just try to plow through it.

sue said...

I have been machine quilting my quilts for a number of years and have decided I NEED a longarm! 😉. I'd love that ruler to use with my new purchase!!

Marti M said...

Just starting to learn to quilt with rulers on my mid-arm. Would love to try curved rulers!

Sue B said...

Hi,
I love your patterns and Quick Curve Ruler! I'm almost finished making the Metro Ring pattern and would love to use your curve long arm ruler to finish it off. I've been using a long arm for a few years and I love it! I'm building skills with every quilt and do a lot of charity quilts to continue to experiment and develop skills. I love your work - saw all your quilts at the Manchester, NH show in April 2015 - they are all beautiful! Your both an inspiration!!
Sue

Kell said...

So far I've done all my own quilting. It's been a while but I've rented time on the longarm my LQS has. I'm hoping at some point I can buy my own. My biggest problem quilting is that I almost always do a complicated job so it takes me longer than if I went simple.

D. Koenig said...

I quilt on my domestic machine, mostly doing stitch in the ditch and straight line quilting. I find free motion quilting difficult to do on a domestic machine. thanks for all the wonderful give aways. Diane Koenig

Oh I sew want this!!!! It's $60 at my LQS so it's not in the budget at the moment, but I have a mod medallion to be quilted that is just waiting for it!!!

I quilt my own quilts. I have an HQ Sweet 16 in table machine, but I'm thinking of buying a used long-arm from a friend who just bought a bigger machine.

My favorite quilter is Judy Madsen. She has been such an inspiration to me from following her blogs. Many of us can not or select not to purchase machines that are computerized or have stitch regulators. It is so nice to be able to relate to someone to makes do with what they have and turn out absolutely stunning quilts without having to break the bank!

Hi! My very first quilt (crib size sampler) was all hand quilted. I have since quilted a few wall hangings but have not quilted a full size quilt (yet). I have been following many quilters on IG and am in awe of their talents! Signed up for a few Craftsy courses to help build up my courage. My current WIP is a Hawaiian appliqué wall hanging...have started the echo quilting (by hand)

I learned to quilt my quilts on my Bernina, but then my husband gave me a Gammill long arm. I have been enjoying practicing my FMQ . I would love to work with your rulers.

Not much experience for me. I've quilted on my hand and two on domestic machine. I'm not very good at all.

Miss Jamee Quilts said...

I sew on my domestic sewing machine but have just purchased the westalee ruler foot and excited to start doing some ruler work. My favorite long arm quilter is either Angela Walters or Judy from Green Fairy Quilts

I have been doing long-arm quilting since 1997.I saw my first long-arm at a quilt show, and fell in love. My background is industrial sewing, and seeing that big beautiful hunk of machinery set my little heart pattering. I had to take out a loan to buy it, but paid it off in the first year. My machine quilting has gone from rudimentary to fabulous in the last few years. I retired from my full time job in 2012 and now I am quilting even more. I will never be famous because I do not want to be, but I have won local and national awards for my quilts and my quilting.
I just completed the Urban Abacus. My friend and I each bought the pattern, then chose the same fabric and made them together. We live in different states, so it is fun to be able to think of each other while we are making our twin quilts...Dorky!!! but, who cares. if I don't win the rulers , I might have to buy them. I love gadgets.

I've had my Block RockiT for just over a year. I just remind myself that it took me many, many years to learn all that I know about stitching on a domestic machine and it seams like it gets a little easier with each quilt that I do!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Nine months after piecing my first quilt I ordered my longarm. A week after I had my Innova set up I had my first customer quilt on the frame!! Scared to death, but totally fell in love with longarm quilting!!! I have a hard time seeing E2E patterns - I always see custom quilting and I love to use rulers! Thank you for the opportunity to win these totally cool rulers!!!

I use my domestic. I tend to do a lot of straight stitching with my walking foot. Really interested in learning to use rulers. Favorite lomg-armer is Piece-n-Quilts. beckifisher@hotmail.com

I am mostly a hand quilter, but have had several quilts finished for me by various members of my quilt guild. I don't want to pick favourites so I will say that anyone in the Kindred Spirits Guild in PEI Canada will do a fabulous job. I would love to have that ruler to perhaps become more comfortable with machine quilting tools.

I aspire to be able to finish my own quilts- I even bought a new Janome 7700 to do my own baby quilts. But in reality, I realize I don't have the skill or time to do justice to the time I've spent piecing the tops. In that end, I send to Kathy Schwartz at Tamarack Shop in Flin Flon Manitoba, Her work is amazing.

After many years of quilting, I just purchased a long arm which I have enjoyed learning. I just won a ribbon at a quilt she for my custom quilted piece. So exciting. I would love to play with ruler work. Thank you for this opportunity.

I haven't quilted many quilts and all were on the regular sewing machine. One word: Frustrating. Hopefully, quilting will be easier now that I have a mid-arm.

I absolutely love quilting with rulers. I did a baby quilt and used a ruler for cross hatching and love how precise it makes everything!

I love having my Innovative long arm! I quilted in my domestic machine before, but nothing beats the ease of a long arm.

Michelle Clubb said...

Love you one ruler that I have and your patterns!

Kim Miks said...

love the ruler. only do my own quilting

scrapseeds said...

I have quilted small projects and would love to get a longarm for bigger projects. My youngest child went to college last week now might be my time to make that happen!

bernadette borrill said...

I love making the quilt tops but the basting and quilting still scares me. Maybe with the help of the curved ruler, I would actually finish a quilt with more than the normal straight lines.

Trying to learn free motion quilting on a domestic machine, slow going. 24Tangent@gmail.com

Pauline Perry said...

I quilt my own quilts and used to do them by handquilting but now I do not have the time to do that anymore - I would only handquilt for very special people and my family. I use my domestic machine with a walking foot - mostly straight line and recently doing some curved designs. Would love to free motion quilt but had a try and was awful.
