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!

Greetings from Northern Saskatchewan, CANADA! We just love your patterns up here! I really love your new fabric line – please enter my name for the give away! Thanks so much – keep up the good work!
I am also a fan of
‘Anne of Green Gables” and I really like the two quilts on the Jolly Jabber page. You have been a favorite of mine for awhile now. Take care.
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!
Heather, do you have a suggested favorite way of
basting your quilts for machine or hand quilting?
I really enjoy your blogs!
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!

Love your tutorials & always have an eye out for good tutes.Your fabrics are gorgeous.Thanks for sharing pics of them & your patterns.Pat
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???? (email@example.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.
Bless you! I have been unable to get a good miter on 135 degree angles. I had read other tutorials but none of them specified exactly where to align the fold formed in your step five. I knew there had to be a specific place. I am so glad to finally have detailed instructions with great pictures. No more lumpy miters!! Thank you.
I would love to have a copy of your tutorial on making a bedskirt. The one with pictures is too long to print out. Is one available? If so, how do I get it? Thank you.
I’m sorry but I don’t have a digital pattern of this tutorial to print out. If you have a phone or ipad, you can have it sitting next to your machine as a reference while you work.
Looking for the book Little Quilts 4 Little Kids 2 – is this still available?
