    Winterfest was a blast and I loved meeting you and taking a class! Your trunk show was to die for and I saw so many pieces I loved. I have GOT TO make some seasonal table toppers for my dining table. Thanks for all the great tips!

    I just finished a quilt and felt so good using you helpful hint on binding cutting and sewing it. I was done so fast my husband was amazed. He has watched me struggle with other quilts to the finish. Thank you so much. keep up the creative thinking and sharing your talent and tips!

    Hi! I am looking forward to trying your method for making continous binding. It sounds great! In your Sizzlin’ Sixties book, for help with binding the odd-angled corners, you write to go to your tutorials tab on your blog. However, I’m not finding that particular help. I miter my corners on quilts, but have never done these angles before and any tip would be appreciated. I love your Favorite Quilts from Anka’s Treasures book! About 14 of these quilts have been made by friends at my local quilt shop! I made the Sweet Dreams twice! Keep up the creative quilting!

    basting your quilts for machine or hand quilting?

    I really enjoy your blogs!

    Heather,
    Your blog is absolutely the best! Thank you for all the inspiration and helpful techniques you continue to share with us!
    Your trunk show at the Deep Valley Quilters Guild in Mankato was absolutely incredible!
    You have an amazing talent and an wonderful gift for creating awesome patterns and fabric combinations!
    I loved the story about your Great-grandmother and about your Mother. My Grandmother Selma taught me to sew and I am teaching our granddaughters to sew. Claudia, age 9, just finished her first lap-sized quilt! She enjoyed using my design board to plan her quilt.
    Thanks again for all the inspiration!

    Being new I went through a bunch of your archives and checked out your tutorials. You are an engaging writer and your blog site is full of good information. I can’t wait to work on the binding tutorials. My opinion of a good blog, is when the writers share their experiences and expand their quilting horizons along with us. I like feeling part of a “quilting community.”

    Do you have a tutorial or a link to something on how to do the argyle painting that you did on the nursery walls???? (wvlady1960@yahoo.com)

    Thank you so much for your help with the lettering on the Cutie Pie Quilt. I love this pattern, however, I used the “flip & sew” method of sewing so that it did not need any additional quilting after it was finished. It worked out very well. I can’t wait to explore your site–I love your colors and style. Again, thanks for your prompt and helpful reply.
