I like the looks of Zentangle quilting, but my all time favorite is feathers. I have a blue & white Irish chain quilt all ready to go, but I want feathered hearts in the open areas. My local long armer has just started to learn feathers, so it has been sitting aside waiting for her to learn-for about 2 years now!

Sharon Pernes said...

I have never used a long arm quilter. I have a quilt that has a lot of open white space that needs to be long arm quilted and it's for my son so nothing to flowery. I would think lots of circles and swirls would look good.
Thanks for the chance.

Samantha said...

If I won I'd choose the feathery one. I know just which top I'd send ya too! Thanks for a chance to win this great gift. I've had a couple of quilts long arm quilted and I love the way they turned out. I'm to cheap to get it done very often though and I've been putting off quilting this top just because I don't want to have to wrestle with it.

I really like the feathery quilting design. Thanks for the opportunity to enter another of your great giveaways!

Kathy said...

I am a regular follower. I'd love to win. I just finished a quilt top that needs quilted. I'll wait to see if I win before I get started on it. LOL.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Well, I can't do feathers yet, so that is what I would pick - gee if I win, I better get that quilt finished!

Linda said...

I love the whimsical fish, also the double bubbles...

Hillbilly Tonya said...

I will forever and always leave the choosing up to you! I completely trust you!!!

And I would transfer this if I win..you do beautiful work and others need to find you!

Barbara said...

I like the quilter to do thechoosing, but i like the look of zentangles.

Maria Kievit said...

Really like feathers...... There are so many ways you can work with them, and it looks good on almost any quilt..

Marjorie said...

I'll have to decide after I win. There are several flimsies I've been waiting to quilt. Maybe I'd let you have fun with my Ojibwe beadwork inspired quilt.

Lindsay Conner said...

I would probably let the quilter choose the style of quilting! What a great idea for a giveaway :)

Debra said...

I'm not sure, I would rather the quilter see the quilt and do whats best. New follower here!

**Marce** said...

The feathers are awesome. Have a quilt almost ready for quilting so would be great to win!

Jsoosay said...

I would choose feathers because I haven't gotten the hang of them at all yet.

Jennifer said...

i would choose the swirls, my swirls just never seem to look as good.. haha

Ella said...

I'm going to say feathers. I have a quilt top hanging in the closet, awaiting me finding a long arm quilter....

Marcia B said...

Feathers are my fave! I have plenty of quilt tops just waiting to be quilted, so I hope I win! ;^) Thanks for the generous give away you are offering!

JCnNC said...

I would love to win this - I have tops awaiting someone's help with. Love the feathers and thank you for this wonderful giveaway. JudyC

devotedtoquilting said...

Like Hearsease I like the looks of Zentangle quilting, they're all pretty though. I think the quilting pattern would depend on which quilt I sent. :) Thanks also for the info about no reply. You'd mentioned it before, but I didn't know how to change it (I barely know how to blog:)). I think I have it fixed now, we'll see. Love your blog. Nita

bohemiannie! art said...

I love them all! Double bubbles is way cool!

Just Ducky said...

I love the double bubble pattern. I have several tops that need quilting. If I won it would be hard to pick just one.

Gwen said...

I love the swirls--- so pretty! But, if I were to win, I think I'd just let the quilter choose what they think would work best, since they would certainly have more experience than I.... Wow! What an awesome prize!! Thank you so much for the chance to win! :-)

Lesly said...

Can't go wrong with feathers! But I've never used long arm services so I would have to listen closely to the advice of the quilter - I'm sure she would have some good suggestions!

Needled Mom said...

I've alsways been a sucker for feathers. The quilting is lovely.

VickiT said...

I am already a follower. Gosh if I won, I'm not sure which I'd want as I suppose it would depend on the quilt. I have a Grandchild arriving soon (Feb) and need to make something for her and also I still want to make a lap quilt (extra long for my 6'6" husband). If I made a large baby quilt for her then I think the Whimsical Flower but if it were the one for hubby, I'm going to assume my big guy won't necessarily like those flowers on his. lol In that case, I might choose the Swirls or the Wiggle lines. I really love the feathers you've shown that appear to look like hearts.
Thank you for the great giveaway.

Quilting Melodies said...

Wow. I could find a quilt to finish! Thanks for sharing!
Angie

Tina said...

I love the feathers. I really need to learn to make them. Thank you for a chance to win.

Lisa Cox said...

I love the Feathers. Of course, I'd have to give this to my mother in law as I don't have a finished quilt top at this time and probably can't have one ready by January.

Susie at ProsperityStuff said...

Is zentangle the one that's a combination of different styles, so each block is unique? I love that. That's what I'd pick.

Sherryl said...

Oh how very generous of you! If I won, I would gift the quilting to my mother who has always wanted to have some quilting done by a pro - and I'm guessing she would pick the feathers or the wiggle lines (like mother, like daughter). :-)

I love the triangles and whimsical flowers. Thanks for the great offer to win a certificate for you to quilt a top. I am a home economics teacher too (semi retired) and always happy to meet someone who shares my passion for improving the lives of individuals and communities.

Judith said...

My all-time favorite are feathers of all sizes and shapes. I still can't do them as I need more practice. I sure could use your
expertise on an upcoming quilt for a family member as I want it to be very special. Thanks for the giveaway and have a great holiday.

B Greene said...
