    …a real testament to your talents!

    Ellen M. says

    I am new to quilting and perusing blogs. . .but I have definitely benefited from tutorials, so more of those would be appreciated. I am loving those fabrics, and would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity.

  29. 41


    how exciting! congratulations on this momentous milestone, and I look forward to more posts on your blog!

    I love your color sense; I’d like to see more of your “process” in quilt making. That is, tell me why you chose certain fabrics, designs, colors, etc. I teach reading and it’s amazing how many people don’t realize that you have to “think” like a good reader in order to become one (most take this skill for granted).

    When things like color and design come naturally, a person doesn’t realize that the rest of us need to learn that skill; this is true for quilting–teach me how to “think” like a quilter!

  30. 42

    Di says

    Congratulations. Neat timing too! I really love your blog and enjoy looking at all your new creations. One idea would be to host a QAL and incorporate the many ideas already suggested by your other readers.

  31. 43

    eileen says

    Thanks for all of your encouraging fresh ideas. I love checking to see what you’ve created. I love color, color, color and after only a year am truly addicted to fabric and quilting. I would love to see more about designing quilts. I’m trying to figure a way to make a quilt that looks kind of layered but not. It seems like I’m babbling now — so bye for now. Thanks again for the opportunity to win something cool and congrats on your 1,QQQ,QQQ views…

  32. 44


    I’d love to see more of the same, it is a great read already. I always enjoy reading about completed quilts and design and block ideas, not necessarily with a sewn example. It prompts the creative ideas!

  33. 45

    Lee says

    Congratulations on a great accomplishment to one talented quilter! I so admire your work.

  34. 46

    Darcene says

    Wow, 1 million…what an achievement…it is of course due to your great ability to design and share the type of quilts that we all are looking for…congratulations….

    Your website is so inspirational. I love your use of color and creative ideas. I think it’s great as is but if you would want to change something I would say more tutorials. Maybe something for new sewists that like what they see on your blog to get them started.

  64. 91


    Wow, congratulations! What a way to start a new year! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! What is that pink floral print you have there? I’m going to have to get myself some of that, it’s adorable. I love your blog the way it is, but maybe more process posts about how you design a quilt and pick out fabrics. Happy New Year!

  65. 92

    Carmen says

    Congratulations, Faith! I discovered your blog through all the hard work you put into the Summer Sampler Series QAL, and I’m constantly inspired by your work. As for what you could possibly do to enhance the blog in 2012…well, that’s tough — you’ve already walked me through paper-piecing! Maybe an overview of hand-sewing? I also love to sew clothes, so I’d be delighted to see more of that here, but you do the quilting so well.

  136. 192


    Congratulations Faith, that is monumental in my book. I always love seeing the things you create, they do really inspire me but I do love a good tutorial and this year I aim to do my first quilt-a-long (but it has to be a pattern that talks to me, samplers do not I’m afraid).


  137. 195


    I love your blog – Congratulations!! Actually, you’ve inspired me to make a quilt this year (I haven’t since 95 – except for some kitchen materials). So, I’ve already picked out a pattern and a jelly roll! You are definitely a very talented fabric artist!

My aunt asked me to make her a quilt in earth tones, and I’m S T U C K. I would love to see more quilt patterns from you this year. I would love it if you could show the patterns in different color schemes too! Perhaps a bolder option as well as a more muted option??? I’m really just thinking out loud here!
