    At Marmalade I would like the Low Volume Fat Quarter bundle. At the Fat Quarter Shop I would order a bolt of Bella White Solid as I use it a lot for my background fabric. At the Pink Door I would like the Moda Dotted Swiss Jelly Roll and I’m sure I could find something else also!

    I like seeing FMQ tutorials. That’s a skill I need to take the time to work on.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Karen says...

    I must admit I have not seen your tutorials – I am advanced in my hand work and know what I am doing with it and do not do much in the area of machine work – I love looking at other quilters blogs though to see what others work on

  • Ali M says...

    My favorite Marmalade Fabrics bundle is the bottled rainbow one, I’ve had that quilt on my to do list for ages!
    Fat Quarter Shop, well I think the FQ bundle by quilt dad, Nature’s Elements is in my cart!
    At Pink Door Fabrics, all the fabrics from Art Gallery’s Chica Flora collection!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Ali M says...

    The cross stitched quilt block, I’ve been making some and I love them!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Quilting Tangent says...

    Triangle Wheel quilt block is a good idea. How about a complex marineers compass class or video.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Margaret says...

    I love your Cross Stitch Block tutorial. I’m looking forward to your tutorial on how you do your labels. :-) And I’d love to see a lesson(?) video of how you choose fabrics for a quilt.

  • Jenn Hess says...

    I read your Aurifil Tutorial this morning and liked that, I love that thread! I am not sure, right now I am learning how to free motion quilt, I am new to quilting and sewing in general so everything is so new to me. I love tutorials that dumb it down for newbies like me because really I am learning as I go but from what I have read from everyone else I think that is how all quilters learn, jump in feet first and see what you can create! I would love to see some kind of sew along where you are there to answer questions on the project we are all working on together.

    On August 21, 2014

  • melissa says...

    A new collection I like at the moment I like Vintage Happy.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Margaret says...

    My favorite bundle at Marmalade is Gold Prints FQ bundle. At FQS, I’m eyeing various Kona solids in green for a quilt for my godson. And at Pink Door, I’d get some Bark and Branch prints and some of Joel Dewberry’s herringbones.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Sarah says...

    I like your easy way to piece curves tutorials. I want more free motion quilting tutorials.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Jenn Hess says...

    At Marmalade Fabrics I like the Around the Color Wheel Solid White/Neutral. At Fat Quarter Shop I have my eye on Rose Hill Lane Entire Collection Fat Quarter Bundle. At Pink Door Fabrics I would get the RainCheck Umbrella quilt pattern and buy some of the fabrics for that quilt from there.

  • Kelli says...

    On August 21, 2014

  • Karen Wills says...

    I love your FMQ tutorials and I would love even more FMQ tutorials. Practice makes Progress ;) I would love a class about how to price quilts. I’m a newbie and there is so many different and contradicting opinions. Btw Happy Bloganniversary!!!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Mary says...

    My favorite is Machine Applique 101, very informative with great photos and descriptions! Congrats on the blogiversary!

    I love the Sanctuary Cool Batch bundle at Marmalade fabrics. From The Fat Quarter shop I would buy some Stonehenge yardage, from Pink Door Fabrics it would be Whimsicöl in Mist yardage.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Lee Ann L. says...

    The Cross Stitch Block tutorial. Thank you for a chance!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Karen Wills says...

    I love the night sky fat quarter bundle at marmalade. I want the red and aqua variety fat quarter bundles at the FQS. At pink door I want some happy go lucky pre cut packs.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Jolien says...

    At Marmalade I adore the Around the Color Wheel bundles, such great combinations of fabrics. Loving the Tangerine, guess that’s mainly ‘cause summer is in the air. At Fat Quarter Shop I found such pretty Asian Peony fabrics in the Sale section, I couldn’t pass those up. Love the luxurious look of them. At Pink Door Fabrics I’d love to buy some of the (chevron) knits. The Sherbet Tangerine Interlock would be lovely for a top I’d say!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Quilting Tangent says...

    Marmalade Fabrics -Around the color bundle.
    The Fat Quarter Shop – Rainbow Tonga Batiks.
    Pink Door Fabrics – Sunny side – cloud burst.

  • Lee Ann L. says...

    Marmalade Fabrics: Modern Red Cross buncle
    Fat Quarter Shop: I have a wish list set up on their site and I’m wanting their Star Spangled Chevron fabrics and the Chance of Flower plaids.
    Pink Door Fabrics: Chevrons! And there is a Houndstooth fabric in Jamborie Primary colors that I love!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Paula says...

    I love the spray basting and glue basting tutorials. I love to see lots more on free motion quilting.

    On August 21, 2014

  • becky m says...

    I love skill builder #10 with the triangle. i just printed that one out to do!

    On August 21, 2014

  • jenni says...

    I followed along with your skill builder last year and I learned more about quilting than I had ever known. Just the basics of starching, cutting, sewing it was amazing. I think I would be pleased with all your tutorials!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Carmen says...

    Congratulations on your blogiversary! I love your blog and your tutorials and, recently, LOVE your videos! Thanks to you my pieced points are sharper! I wish you many more years and tons of success! LOVE your FQS custom blogger bundle!

    On August 21, 2014

  • jenni says...

    I have been eyeing that low volume FQ bundle from marmalade, I would like to make a low volume quilt. From Fat Quarter Shop I would like to buy some linen and try that in a quilt. I need to stalk up on my aurifil thread and I need a backing for my April Showers quilt and Pink Door Fabrics has a great selection.

    On August 21, 2014

  • Carmen says...

    My favorite POF tute is the Glue Basting Basics— but really, I love them all. I would love to see you putting HST’s together in a complex star in a star pattern or something like this: http://finitegeometry.org/sc/16/quiltgeometry.html.
    I haven’t signed up for any classes at POF due to, ahem, financial constraints, but I plan to do so soon. Can’t wait!

    On August 21, 2014

  • becky m says...

    Marmalade: I would get one of the around the world color bundles
    Fat Quarter Shop: FQ stack of Solstice by Kate Spain
    Pink Door Fabrics: the swiss dot FQ bundle!

    On August 21, 2014

    On August 21, 2014

  • Shayne says...

    On August 21, 2014

  • Stephanie says...

    I like the cross stitched block tutorial. I saw someone say labels and that would be an awesome one. I really need to start labeling all my quilts! Thanks

    On August 21, 2014

  • Texas Quilting Gal says...

    I love the Night Sky Fat Quarter Bundle at Marmalade Fabrics. I’d get a few patterns I’ve been eyeing and some Kate Spain fabric from Pink Door Fabric. And Aurifil thread from Fat Quarter Shop.

    On August 21, 2014

    Alyssa, I love your blog sooo much. You have encouraged me!
    My life changed a year ago, I was just a happy snappy mom farting around with fabric and “cleaning” a house now and then.
    My mom had a stroke March 2013 and everything stopped. Now I moved them close to me,
    I love sewing and try to make fun things, but I have to say it has been a huge punch in the stomach for all of us, this new routine. My parents are 90 :-)
    Anyway, I love getting your blog updates. I love everything you share
    I like perky peppy happy colors, mostly flowers
    Thank you for making my day!!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Lindsey says...

    From Marmalade I’d love to grab their sanctuary cool fat quarter bundle—perfect colors for just about anything! From Fat Quarter Shop (one of my favorite places!) I am definitely eyeing Lazy Day with the navy and brights all mixed together. And from Pink Door I’m interested in her patterns, especially Lucky Stars by V&Co, or anything by Camille Roskelley. :)

    On August 21, 2014

  • Shayne says...

    I’m a sucker for solids! And would a solid bundle form Marmalade!
    I would stock up on some big cuts for quilt backs at the FQS!
    ANNND I LOVE Tule by Leah Duncan from PinkDoor!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Carmen says...

    I’m a solids and text prints kinda girl, so from Marmalade Fabrics, I would choose the NEW Bottled rainbows 1/2 Yard Bundle. I would use the FQS’s gift cert for some quilter’s linen. I’ve been COVETING the stuff! At Pink Door Fabrics, I would get Baile De Calaveras (Day of the Dead Newspaper Print) in Dark Tea/Sepia – 7924E – Frida La Catrina Collection – Alexander Henry and any other text print that I can find!

  • cindy oneal says...

    Curved piecing. there are a few of them and they helped conquer the fear. I would like to see something on Y seams, and more paper piecing. Its always confusing when you get started. C

  • Bethany Martini says...

    I have my eye on some color me happy bundles! I really want to get the fat quarter bundle!

    On August 21, 2014

    I really love your machine binding tutorial. That is something that I have always wanted to improve and I love the method you use!!

    On August 21, 2014

  • Rosemary B says...

    I love all of your tutorials, but I like the FMQ ones the best, and also the beginner quilt lessons about colors. You really boost my creativity.

    I would love more guidance on sashing and quilt assembly.
    Classes, I enjoy all of your classes! I learn so much…. and I am OLD and have been sewing for 40 big fat years hahaha

    On August 21, 2014

  • Mara says...
