How to piece a large quilt back with scraps or fat quarters (+ fabric giveaway!)

Honeycomb quiltWhen it comes to big quilts, we give Stashtastic! author Doug Leko big props: he’s the king of ’em! He’s also well versed in the art of finishing big quilts. And what’s step one for finishing big quilts? Making a quilt back big enough to fit the quilt front!

Doug included downloadable patterns for pieced quilt backs in his book, Stashtastic! But today, those patterns are now an exclusive download for our Stitch This! peeps—that means YOU! We love Doug’s approach to using both quilt-top leftovers and fat quarters in his backings—both easy and economical. And pretty too.

To use scraps, Doug says, “Trim all of your leftover pieces to a common size; normally I have enough fabric to cut 3½"-wide strips. Sometimes I can only cut 2½"-wide strips and other times I can cut 6½"-wide strips.”

For fat quarters, Doug says, “I love using leftover fat quarters to make another ‘quilt’ for the backing. That way, you get a two-sided quilt. When selecting fat quarters for the backing, I like to use the leftover fat quarters from a bundle. Often there are miscellaneous ones that I know I’ll never use in another quilt but that would make a great backing.”

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Gina, who says:

“I would say I  have completed between 10 and 20 quilts full size or larger over the years.  I like to have at least one (or two!) quilts on my bed to sleep under at night.  I have a quilting machine now, which helps me be able to complete quilts faster and cheaper than quilting by check!  I have often pieced backings for my quilts.  It is time consuming but I always love the results–so much more interesting than a one-fabric back.”

We’ll email you about your prize, Gina—congratulations!

  • I have not made a really large quilt as I find anything over 60” by 60” is more than I can wrangle on my machine. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Jackie Stevens on July 9, 2018
  • would love to win – about all I make are large bed size quilts – I love them – I do make couch size too but I mainly make large quilts and have for the past almost 25 years now.

    Karen on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed about 40 queen sized quilts in the last 25 years. Pieced and then longarmed by a professional. Then about 8 baby quilts! Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Carol Nelms on July 9, 2018
  • How many big quilts? Hmm. Have to guess here, 10 – 15 is as close as I can come.

    —Barbara Bennett on July 9, 2018
  • I am a newbie – only one big quilt so far finished!

    —lee on July 9, 2018
  • I make more baby quilts than anything but I’ve probably made at least two dozen bed sized quilts.

    —Enid Chapman on July 9, 2018

    —Shari on July 9, 2018
  • I love bigger quilts to use instead of a spread on the bed so when there are designs I usually try to make them Thanks for the great giveaway that gives us a chance to see new fabrics.

    —Phyllis Butler on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made two queen sized quilts. It’s hard because I do my own quilting on a home machine.

    —Molly Skeen on July 9, 2018
  • Many years ago I made my 3 kids a queen sized quilt when they left home. 2 of them I hand quilted. One was a rag quilt. Then had to take many years off from sewing due to illness, now I’m back at it again and have made 3 twin sized quilts, one for each of my grandkids, and several wall hangings, table runners, and lap quilts in the past 3 years. I will soon be starting to make quilts for the foster kids program here in my city in Canada. I would love to win some fabric and ideas to make these quilts! Thx

    —Judy Magnus on July 9, 2018
  • In the past 10 years I have made 20+ large quilts and lap quilts. I always wanted to piece my backs, but never had the courage to figure that out. Thanks for the pieced back ideas! The wheels are turning already! Thanks for the give away.

    —Patti on July 9, 2018
  • About 29 bed-size quilts and over 100 baby quilts, Wall quilts, and table toppers.

    —Marsha on July 9, 2018
  • Just working on my first full size quits. Before this I’ve done wall hangings and table runners and placemats.

    —Lynne Gould on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made about 5 big quilts and I love to use my scraps for the backing. It’s like having a two-sided quilt–more interesting.

    CJ Hines on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve finished 3 queen-sized quilts, and a few twins, but mostly make lap and crib sizes since I quilt them on my home sewing machine. Since I quilt scrappy and love using my stash, I’m always trying to come up with backing ideas. I love the short strips Doug used in the book description, great idea!

    —Shelley Needham on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed a dozen large quilts. The biggest being a king size. I would love to learn the techniques for using up scraps to make the backing!

    —Penny MacDonald on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished at least a dozen large quilts and I have 3 or 4 tops that need quilted.

    —Karen A on July 9, 2018

    —Eileen Suderman on July 9, 2018
  • I have been quilting for nearly 30 years so I don’t know how many big quilts I have made. My favorite size to make is around 60×72 which I feel makes a wonderful "throw". Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway.

    —LynneP on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 9 queen sized quilts since I retired in 2011 and 1 double-sized a number of years ago. I just finished the "365 Quilt"! That was a huge challenge!! but its beautiful 🙂

    Phyllis Kelso on July 9, 2018

    —Ann West on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve only made on big quilt but I have a feeling it was not BIG! I am working on some ideas to stretch my quilting skills to make them bigger (only because that is what My honey would like- ).

    Anita L Jackson on July 9, 2018
  • I can’t even remember how many large quilts I have made! Enough to have many boxes of scraps!

    —Bunny Hand on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed at least 15. That’s what I can count and remember right now. Additionally lots of baby quilts, wall hangings, table runners and other quilted items.

    —Tess McCarthy on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 10.

    —Marg on July 9, 2018
  • I have only finished 2 king size quilts. Several queens and doubles. I like lap size as I now have a longarm, but it is only on an 8′ frame, but I have a few large quilt tops yet to be quilted. Thanks for the giveaway. I love Holly Taylor’s flannels!!!

    —Susanne Hilton on July 9, 2018
  • I have not yet made any quilts of bed size.

    —Sharon on July 9, 2018

    —Kathy Blascyk on July 9, 2018

    —Nancy on July 9, 2018

    —Page on July 9, 2018
  • I havent made a large quilt yet.
    Need to make a few few family and myself, but I’m overdue on making a baby quilt first!
    Broke my forearm in May.set me back a bit.

  • I have only made two large sized quilts. Mostly I have made twin size, throws and crib sized.

    —Herman Hughes on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made only one big quilt but have a feeling it was not really BIG. I have been working on stretching my quilting skills to attempt the bigger patterns.

    Anita L Jackson on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed about 10 big quilts and a lot of throw sized quilts. I love to make scrappy quilts and would love to have this book.

    —Nancy on July 9, 2018
  • Only 2 queen-sized quilts are completed by me thus far, but I have blocks made for several others so must get tops done before getting the backings pieced together this way.

    —Martha on July 9, 2018
  • I have quiled one queen size and one full size on my domestic Babylock Ellisimo Gold II. This was several years ago, earlier in my quilting experience. Getting better with more practice on lap quilts. I do need to be more creative with quilt backs!

    —Sandy Trachsel on July 9, 2018
  • Since I have not been quilting very long, I have only completed 3 large quilts. I’m still learning!

    Jan McElyea on July 9, 2018
  • I am a beginner so I have only made 4 large quilts but several small ones. Am excited to start making more!!

    —Dixie Felton on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 5 large quilts so far thanks to my longarm and currently working on the 6th. Love being able to “do it all myself”. Have a bunch of tops ready to go. I can’t decide what I like best, piecing or quilting. This book looks awesome for using up all my larger leftover fabric pieces Thanks for the opportunity to win the book or fabric!

    —Ruth Keimel on July 9, 2018
  • So far, just one large quilt, but I have many more in my mind!

    —Rosemary Havens on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made four queen-size and have four more pieced and awaiting backs and quilting so will love to see Doug’s ideas for pieced backs. I love the opportunity to put another creative spin into a project and even better if it means the quilt has two sides to be enjoyed!

    Vivian on July 9, 2018
  • We have a king sized bed, so I have made several "BIG" quilts. I usually try to piece the back with left over fabric from the project (I always buy too much) or use left over blocks even with smaller quilts. It is always fun to see how the back turns out!

    —Patty on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 8 large quilts.

    —Mary on July 9, 2018
  • I would have to venture a guess of at least 25 large quilts.

    —Virginia Over on July 9, 2018
  • I have never made a big quilt but these pattern ideas look great – the instructions would be very helpful and the fabric wonderful! This may just be what a need to move to a larger size.

    Martha Bersch

    —Martha Bersch on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about 8 big quilts. There’s always a sense of big accomplishment when they are done!

    —Pat on July 9, 2018
  • I have made two queen sized quilts and free motioned quilted them on my sewing machine.

    —Cynthia on July 9, 2018
  • The biggest I’ve finished is a twin. I’m working on a queen size for our bed. I do prefer smaller quilts as I don’t have a long arm (yet).

    —Verna A. on July 9, 2018
  • I have not completed any big quilts, but I WANT to! I call myself an "advanced-newbie" quilter. I’m getting closer to having the nerve to attempt a big quilt for our king size bed.

    —KAY on July 9, 2018
  • At least 12 queen size to king size, which I quilt on my domestic sewing machine. The book looks like it has some great ideas! I would love to win it!

    Ruth Janssen on July 9, 2018
  • I consider large quilts to be 108 and above! I’ve completed the quilting on 4 of those this year! Getting those tops done! My last flannel was a large 10 minute king size for my son-in-law. So much fun! Thanks for the drawing. Happy quilting everyone.

    —Cathy Hughes on July 9, 2018
  • Only one. Had quilter with longer finish others.

    Mona Baldwin on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several large…100×100 or more by my sewing machine but find it easier to send to a quilter
    Thank you for the opportunity to win the book… I love scrappy quilts
    Marcia Heinz

    —Marcia heinz on July 9, 2018
  • So far, about 20 large quilts. And have several more in process. I like to change them out every season and have a number of beds to change. Also use large quilts as wall hangings to warm up the spaces.

    —Marilynn on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve finished 4..thank you.

    —Cathy on July 9, 2018
  • I have made a lot of BIG quilts. I recently started quilting my own quilts.

    —Deb Worthman on July 9, 2018
  • Oh my. I’ve made maybe 15-20 big quilts but most of those were years ago. My latest quilt was using embroidered pillows cases my MIL made (she’s passed) that belong to my SIL. I actually taught her to make the quilt but I had to design it. She gave it to her granddaughter. It’s was over 100″ long. It turned out beautiful.

    —April Lopez on July 9, 2018
  • I love to quilt! I have much to learn. I have made a few!

    —Terry on July 9, 2018
  • I have probably made 6 or so larger quilts but not really sure as I have given several away and unfortunately did not keep a quilt diary. Live and learn.

    —Donna M on July 9, 2018
  • Just one, but another is in the works. Most of my projects are lap size or smaller.

    —Carol Vickers on July 9, 2018
  • I Have been quilting for about 10 years now and have made 7 queen to king quilts and quite a few lap and baby quilts. The last 3 quilts were king of which I quilted on my home machine.
    I am always looking for ways to use leftover fabric so piecing backs would be a great way to use up those leftovers.

    —Sandy C on July 9, 2018
  • I have. Made several queen and king size quilts . . .too many to remember in my 35 years of quilting!

    —Theresa Powers on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve done maybe 6 baby quilts and 4 bigger kid quilts. Then probably 3 large wall quilts and 5-6 queen sized bed quilts. Working on a bunch more. I’m in my 80’s now and didn’t start till I was over 60, so I need to make up for lost time!

    —Pat Lenzo on July 9, 2018
  • If by large you mean queen/king size than only one. Full/twin size probably 10.

    Sharon on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 4.

    —Ruth on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t completed many large quilts. Maybe 8 over the years. I mostly do quilts for the local NIC units. I could use the leftover fabric from the tops for the backing and reduce the scrap stash.

    —Kathy A on July 9, 2018
  • I have never counted how many I have made, but it is a lot!! I love the colors in the fat bundle and would love to make a big quilt with those!! And the book by Doug Leko looks awesome! I would love to win this giveaway!!

    —Dotti Mondoux on July 9, 2018
  • I have only made small quilts, I would love to make a big one for the beds in our house!

    —Sunnie on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed one queen size quilt and just gifted it about two weeks ago. I have a number of others in the works. I have made 3 twin size and quite a few baby one. Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity!

    —Anna V on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 queen size quilts that were then hand quilted by our church quilting group & auctioned off. I love piecing backs of quilts. Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Stephanie S. on July 9, 2018
  • WOW! Now that is a great question. I would have to say at least a dozen maybe close to twenty. Some have been given as gifts, some for my family, a couple for others to give to their family, and some for charity.

    —Lewcrese S on July 9, 2018
  • I have only made a couple small quilts. I would love to make one for all the beds in the house!

    —Sunnie on July 9, 2018
  • I have about a dozen big quilt tops finished, but still need to do the backing and get them quilted.

    —jo on July 9, 2018
  • I have made a king size guilt and 2 queens.l have made over 200 small quilts for the children’s hospital in Florida for the Cancer ward and to use in the new babies unit to cover the incubators. If the children survive they take home the quilt otherwise it is given to the parents. It is a very rewarding situation.

    —Sandra sanders on July 9, 2018
  • When I first started quilting I didn’t know there was such a thing as "machine quilting" so I hand quilted each winter what I had pieced on my machine during the warmer months. I probably made a half dozen "big quilts" this way. However, when I finally made a kind sized quilt for my own bed, THAT one was sent out to the long arm quilter to finish!

    —Carolyn on July 9, 2018
  • The largest quilt I’ve ever completed is a twin sized for my son so my answer is one.

    —ELIZABETH KUNTZ on July 9, 2018
  • I have not counted how many big quilts I have made but it is a lot. I love the colors in the fat quarter bundle and would love to make a big quilt from it! And the book by Doug Leko looks fantastic. Would love to win this giveaway!

    —Dotti Mondoux on July 9, 2018
  • Well, I’ve finished three queen-sized quilts and am now working on a king-size. Not so easy to do with just a domestic machine!

    —Allison Evrard on July 9, 2018
  • Almost all the quilts I make are BiG quilts! Lol! Just the occasional baby quilt sneaks in!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kerry Linklater on July 9, 2018

    —Bev on July 9, 2018

    —Louise on July 9, 2018

    —Jeannette Cyr on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t started quilting yet ….but I want to ..this bundle would be a great help to start my new hobby : )

    —Kim Salmi on July 9, 2018

    Mary Johnson on July 9, 2018
  • I have made so many quilts for us, gifts, and friends they are too numerous to count. Most of them are bedside. Also several throw quilts. Love my hobby. Can’t wait to start another on one!

    —Judy on July 9, 2018
  • I think I’m at about 20 including baby quilts. It’ll be closer to 25 when I quilt the tops in my sewing room!

    —stephanie box on July 9, 2018

    —Judy Casteel on July 9, 2018
  • I have made quite a few actually. I don’t keep a count. I make and give away. Some of my quilts weren’t suppose to get big enough for a queen but they have ended up that way. The book and fabric look to be just what I could use. I have huge scrap piles from friends and family to get used up in my lifetime!thanks for the opportunity

    —Robin on July 9, 2018
  • I have not completed any but look forward to trying it.

    Kathy Oneil on July 9, 2018

    —LoAnn on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve been retired 14 years and completed three dozen large quilts including Quilts of Valor. Most were gifts for weddings or birthdays. Additionally, many baby quilts, lap quilts and decor pieces and mini quilts.

    —Darla on July 9, 2018
  • I started quilting about seven years ago and have finished about 15 large quilts. I’m not counting the seven I have waiting to be quilted on my Sweet 16. Too many quilts I want to make and too little time. Love using up extra blocks and leftover fabrics in my backings.

    —Becky /thomason on July 9, 2018
  • I knew I should have kept track!! I don’t really have a clue how many large quilts I’ve made – maybe around 25. Most all of what I’ve made over the years have been queen or king and I’ve pieced many of the backings, but none as pretty or organized as these!

    —Kathy on July 9, 2018
  • I have only been quilting for about four years. I have only completed one queen but I did all the quilting on my own machine…it wasn’t the best job but my daughter and son-in-law love it. I also have one half done for our bed. I love those colors!!

  • I’m working on my second king quilt now and it’s a definite challenge, but an enjoyable one. I’ll be glad when it’s done and I can go back to charity quilts for the hospital and quilts for the grandkids…who all seem to have moved on to bigger beds and now need bigger quilts!

    —Debbie on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made many large quilts, from afghan-sized to king-sized. At least 13 are completely done. Two just need binding, two are at the long-arm quilter, one more should go there this week. I have several more that are almost done. This does not include the baby quilts I have done.

    Judy on July 9, 2018
  • Love you books! I am always making quilts for family & friends. New ones are for two grandsons, Sesame Street & Ninjagos. I would love the new book on Stashtastic! Keep giving us books that help & excited creativity.

    Colleen C on July 9, 2018
  • I think 5 large queen size quilts and many more large lap and baby quilts. Fantastic giveaway!!!

    —Toni Anne Potter on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made three or four larger quilts. Mostly do baby quilts for a local charity. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Lisa on July 9, 2018
  • Just a newbie here but have managed to complete 2 queen size and am working on my first king size one. Would love to win as I am developing quite a scrap stash lol. Thank you!

    —Alice Martin on July 9, 2018
  • I’m a beginner, but I’m proud of my 2 big quilts.

    —Jane Larke on July 9, 2018
  • Most of my quilts are large – twin or double bed size. I love Doug’s suggestion to use leftovers from the top to piece the back! I plan to do just that on my current project!

    —Gwen Wehner on July 9, 2018
  • Including the wedding quilts I’ve made with my mother and sisters I’ve completed 25 or so large quilts over 35+ years of quilting.

    —Terry D on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 4 o5 really big quilts. Two of my grown children have California king beds, so they, of course want really big quilts. I have a Bernina 830, so my machine will handle them, but they are rather intimidating. However, I feel very accomplished when they are finally done. This looks like a great book and I love Mmoda fabrics. Joan

    —Joan Brown on July 9, 2018
  • What an exciting prize! I have completed a dozen queen or king size quilts, including either hand quilting them or machine quilting with my domestic machine. They are all my work and done with love for my family.

    —Pat on July 9, 2018
  • I have done 10 queen size quilts. I pieced them and quilted them on my Brother 1500 domestic sewing machine. Lots of work but well worth the effort if you like to own your project from beginning to end!

    —Cathy Cerda on July 9, 2018
  • About 20. I tend to make baby quilts to give to Charity. Love the backing ideas!

    —DONNA SHEFFER on July 9, 2018
  • My daughter and I have done two king size ones, and I have two full size in my project to-do’s right now. I’ve pieced most backs, I do mostly throw to twin size, other than finding extra wide yardage at Craftsy and eQuilter on sale for the big ones! plus my long armer prefers not a bunch of extra seams, so I’m interested in his tips for the piecing.

    —Sharon Schipper on July 9, 2018
  • Have completed only 1 king size quilt, a couple of queen sized, and many twin & crib sized ones. Book looks great & the fabric is gorgeous! Thank you!!!

    —Deirdre on July 9, 2018

    —Colleen on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 8 queen sized quilts. I am a part time quilter because I am a golfer, gardner/canner, farmer! Love to quilt, have made many more smaller quilts. One of these days when I can’t do my other hobbies/jobs, I will quilt many more.

    —Donna on July 9, 2018
  • I am still new to quilting. Ha e not made any large quilts. But willing to try making one.

    —Kathy on July 9, 2018
  • i have done at least 20 big quilts in my lifetime, lately i have been trending to smaller quilts but do like the large quilts on beds a lot!

    —susan on July 9, 2018

    Mary Peters on July 9, 2018
  • I have made only 1 king sized quilt, a couple of queen sized and many twin & crib sized ones. The book looks great, and the fabric is gorgeous! Thank you!!!

    —Deirdre on July 9, 2018
  • I have 2 king size beds in my house and my children has queen size beds, so I usually make large quilts for myself or for my grown children. My favorite quilt to make is a scrappy log cabin.

    I am in a charity group that makes lap quilts for Linus and area nursing homes and I usually make at least 40+ each year.

    —Nita Beard on July 9, 2018
  • I have not yet completed any really big quilts, but this prize would motivate and inspire… just sayin’! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Erika B on July 9, 2018
  • Thank you for the chance at winning !
    I am a beginner and finished 4 lg quilts and working on 3 valor’s quilts. Have done many table runners. Love quilting !

    —Dottie Klees on July 9, 2018
  • The largest quilt I have ever made is full sized. I have yet to tackle anything larger!! I would love to make a queen to king sized quilt for my son and his new wife. Thank you for the generous giveaway!! <3

    —Detra Braymen on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about 6 large Quilts, the biggest being a king size for my bed. I’m finding now that anything bigger than a throw is just to big for me to handle. Thanks for the tip on piecing a quilt back (I have 3 that need backing) and for the
    great giveaway.

    —Fran Bianchi on July 9, 2018
  • I started my quilting adventure making large quilts. Just in the last 5-8 years have I made small quilts and other projects.

    —Vicki H on July 9, 2018
  • Four, but I’m a beginner. Hope I win!

    —Arleen Curry on July 9, 2018
  • I am in the process of completing 4 more but have finished only one. But I have tons of scraps & would love the book & bundle!!

    —Kathy Richins on July 9, 2018
  • Most all my quilts are at least twin size.

    —Janna on July 9, 2018
  • When I first started quilting about 20 years ago, I didn’t even know there WAS such a thing a machine quilting! Each year I would machine piece during the summer and hand quilt in the cooler months probably completing at least a half dozen quilts "big" this way. However, when I finally made a king size quilt for my own bed, that one was sent out to the long arm quilter to complete!

    —Carolyn on July 9, 2018
  • I have only been quilting for a couple of years, and have made one big quilt. Lots of other small quilting projects have been made.

    —Sandy K on July 9, 2018
  • Thanks for the giveaway and information on piecing the backs–I really love doing that!! I’ve done about four full size quilts in the past 20+ years. I’ve noticed at quilt shows during the antique quilt bed turnings that hardly any of the old quilts were bigger than twin/full. That’s good enough for me! Everyone needs their own personal quilt!!

    —Shelia Nelson on July 9, 2018
  • For me, big is a quilt for a double bed. I’ve made more than 20.

    —Kathie L on July 9, 2018
  • My friend and quilt mentor always tells me that my quilts are too large. Being a novice quilter, I have completed 11 of them.

    —Hedda on July 9, 2018
  • Oh, boy….I’d have to think back to all the quilts I’ve made (and given away). I guess I should have kept a quilt journal! My guess would be 15-20.

    —Darlene B on July 9, 2018
  • When I first started quilting I didn’t even know there WAS such a thing as machine quilting so my first half dozen "big" quilts were machine pieced during the summer and hand quilted during the cooler months! When I finally made a king sized quilt for my own bed, however, that one was sent out to the long arm quilter!

    —Carolyn Sefkow on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 2 large quilts but still need to do the quilting. New to quilting and longarm . Learning the longarm along with quilting.Something new each day!

    Judy on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished four king size quilts that I rotate seasonally. I have finished five queen size and several full/double that I switch often and fold to layer at the foot of the bed depending on my mood!

    —Kerry Coburn on July 9, 2018
  • We have a king sized bed so most of my quilts are queen sized or bigger. I do them all by hand and almost all my quilt backs are pieced or else double-sided with the front and backs being the same blocks. Since I started quilting in 2009 I’ve made around 30 quilts this way.

    —Jennifer Faith on July 9, 2018
  • My very first quilt (2009) was king size: 90×113 – I was a garment seamstress and had no concept of quilt size! I have done at least 30 more that are over 60 inches. In the 9 years, I have pieced over 250 quilt tops most as Project Linus.

    —Lois on July 9, 2018
  • I love flannel and Holly Taylor’s fabrics. I have pieced many large quilts and sell them at the Eureka Montana Quilt Show in August. I have 28 entered this year. I also like giving them away to family. I would love to win the giveaway!!

    —Carol Hanson on July 9, 2018
  • i have pieced between 40-50 large quilts over the last 25 years.

    —carolyn montgomery on July 9, 2018
  • Too many to count!

    —Janet Espeleta on July 9, 2018
  • my go-to size is usually twin, but I have made 5 or 6 queen/king quilts. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!

    —brenda seth on July 9, 2018
  • Although I have made many quilts, I do not make any larger than lap or maybe close to twin size. I think I am intimidated by the breadth of a larger project so I stay with what I know I can complete.

    —Barbara on July 9, 2018
  • I have been quilting for a long time since 1978. if I had to guess how many large quilts I have made over the years I would estimate over 50. lots and lots of quilts made over the years.

    Mary

    —Mary Kastner on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve completed 2 quilts 100 x 120” in the past 3 years since I started quilting again. These quilts were made for my two sons. I began quilting in the mid 90’s and made mostly table toppers and twin sized quilts for graduating nieces and nephews. Life got busy and I didn’t have time to quilt. Then I had a stroke in 2010 and became disabled. I had to learn to read again and work with numbers. I hesitantly started quilting again. My ability to understand the written word improved and I found patterns I understood to make my sons quilts.

    —Gayle Shumaker on July 9, 2018
  • … maybe a dozen? But I have just as many large UFO’s! I would like to become ‘well versed in the art of finishing big quilts.’ The book + Moda fabric would be a great incentive! Thanks!

    —Gina M on July 9, 2018
  • I tried to count the number of large quilts I have finished, and I think it is about 35 but I am not really sure because I give them away to family and use for wedding gifts. I have done a few quilts I have given to a local society to raffle as a fundraiser for a clinic in Zimbabwe run by a local physician and his wife ( I donate baby quilts for the same clinic ). Thanks for the giveaway I am quite interested in this book and the fabric looks wonderful.

    —Lidwina Flavelle on July 9, 2018
  • Although I have made many quilts, none of them have been larger than lap size or twin. I think I am intimidated by the breadth of a larger project so I stay with what I know I can complete.

    —Barbara on July 9, 2018
  • Completed a reversible handpieced queen sized quilt. Flannel sounds so warm and cozy would be wonderful to make a bed quilt.

    —Quilting Tangent on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 30 or so queen size quilts and 5 king size quilts in about 25 years of quilting. Lots of baby quilts donated to at risk babies or to my own family or friends. All were done on a home machine and either quilted on that machine or by hand.

    —Winona Abrams on July 9, 2018
  • This one is making me think about how many quilts I have done over the years. Too many to think about! I love using all my left over parts and pieces in the backing. It adds interest and fun to the quilt back! These days I don’t do very many one fabric backs!

    —Vicky on July 9, 2018
  • I would say about 25. I enjoy making big quilts.

    —Janie McCombs on July 9, 2018
  • Around 30 big quilts. I pieced and long armed quilted them myself. 🙂

    —Jean Peacock on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve been quilting for 30 years. Started with quilt in a day class and now making QOVs. Would love this giveaway.

    —Lowella Murray on July 9, 2018
  • The largest quits I have made are lap size. I do have fabric and a pattern to make a king size quilt which I hope to start soon. I love the idea of using the leftover fat quarters from a project to make a backing.

    —Judy on July 9, 2018
  • I would say about 25. I love making large quilts.

    —Janie McCombs on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 king size and the rest are twin or throw but have only been quilting for 5 years. One king quilt was quilt as you go, one was hand quilted and the other I quilted on a Hunqvarna machine (mid size throat) – that was hard work but worth every moment 🙂

    —SC on July 9, 2018
  • None, so far. But I have all the piecing done, ready to set the blocks together for my first big finish.

    —Jan on July 9, 2018
  • No big quilts, I’ve only done baby and lap quilts. I would like to take on a larger project though.

    —Jaleh Shafa on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished many large quilts. I love scrappy quilts and have used some of Doug’s methods for the back. His new book Stashtastic looks excellent for using up stash! I like every quilt I’ve seen and usually I like a few projects in a book. Hope the winner of your bundle uses it for one of Doug’s quilts and makes it up right away! Karen C.

    Karen Christiancy on July 9, 2018
  • I have pieced and longarm quilted over 30 big quilts.

    Jean Peacock on July 9, 2018
  • So many I would have to stop and count!

    —Dorothy A Davis on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 queen sized quilts, and they are FINISHED for 2 reasons. Most importantly, they were made for particular occasions and had time deadlines, but they also got finished because I don’t quilt anything that large myself. The part of the process that hangs me up is the sandwiching, and when I can leave that to my long arm wonder-woman, the quilt gets DONE. Two of those had pieced backs, and my lap quilts often have pieced backs, so it’s great to see a couple more ideas for how to do that.And any ideas for scrap quilts are welcome – maybe some day my scraps will come under control.

    —Carol on July 9, 2018
  • I have been quilting for 3 years and I have made about 10 queen size quilts.

    —CariAnn K on July 9, 2018
  • I have not made a big quilt per say as I don’t have any room for them. But I would love to try one and maybe get hooked! I love how Doug uses up the leftovers for his backs. Great idea!

    —Sandra Thornock on July 9, 2018
  • I have never completed anything larger than a twin quilt, although I have several tops waiting.

    —Susan M on July 9, 2018
  • In the last 2 months, I have sent 6 quilts to the longarmer. But there are still about 5 more to make the back and get it quilted. But of course I am in the process of 3 different tops.. Life goes on.. Thanks.

    —Connie German on July 9, 2018
  • I have only made 1 large quilt for our church’s 200th Anniversary. I mostly make kid size quilts for Project Linus.

    —Kathy on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed over 800 twin sized mission quilts that are distributed through Lutheran World Relief. It’s a team effort to complete the quilts. My group completes about 65 quilts per year. I focus on piecing and doing the binding. https://lwr.org/get-involved/quilts

    —Karla Berg Walker on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 king size quilts, 6 queen size quilts and 5 double size quilts all on a regular sewing machine.

    BARBARA MERKLEY on July 9, 2018
  • I have pieced 2 quilt tops for my mother. She then quilted them. I am now retired and want to piece more quilt tops.

    —Rita Lusk on July 9, 2018
  • Last year I finished my first and only queen size quilt made as a gift for someone. The piecing was a breeze, but quilting something that big was too daunting for me, so I sent it out to be done.

    —Kaym on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made tons of bed sized quilts….twin, double, even king! (Whew!) Would love to get this book and the fabric, and try some of the great projects you have previewed here! Thanks for the chance!

    —Jacque on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 1 queen size quilt and am working on two that just have the hand sewing on the binding to be finished. And then there are 3 throw size and one twin size and 2 baby quilts. I have been quilting (and sewing) for about 4 years.)

    —Garnet Anderson on July 9, 2018
  • I make quilts in all sizes, according to the need. I have a hard time when it comes to the backs, finding just the right fabric in a large enough size in my stash–(I have a huge stash.) Piecing some of them would be a great idea, and makes the backs more interesting, too!

    —Marcia Gilbreath on July 9, 2018
  • I have made roughly 25 large quilts in the last 14 yrs. since I started quilting. I try to make at least 2 a yr. Have two half way completed tops in the works right now. Otherwise I like to make doll size quilts to decorate with and/or give as gifts. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Annette on July 9, 2018
  • I have made many large quilts in the 20 years I’ve been quilting. I like all of Doug’s quilts in Stashtastic. I love making scrappy quilts and this book is perfect for that, especially when using scraps on the front & the back! Happy quilting to whomever wins this bundle and book.

    Karen Christiancy on July 9, 2018

  • I have made over 150 quilts in the last 9 years.

    —Nancy Williams on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several large quilt tops. Please notice I said tops, they are not finished. Finding and/or deciding on backing is a problem for me. The instructions in this book would be very helpful. Thanks for doing this giveaway.

    —Barb C on July 9, 2018
  • If by BIG you mean larger than twin size, then I have finished none. I have pieced a few backs for smaller quilts and have loved the results.

    —Cindy on July 9, 2018
  • I have a king size in the frame right now. It has a lot of quilting on it so it should take about 24 days of quilting to get it done. But it’s the hand quilting part that I like.

    Kathy on July 9, 2018
  • I have made at least 6 LARGE quilts. I love piecing a backing for a unique look.

    —Becky Rabalais on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made one large quilt. It was made from flannels in shades of blues. My son loves it!

    Cecelia Samuelson on July 9, 2018
  • I have made a total of three large quilts. 1 kings size for our home bed. and 2 full size quilts as gifts. I love making quilts out of the fabric that I have. I definitely have to send them out to get quilted , it’s too much to handle on my little Viking.

    —Silvia Grover on July 9, 2018
  • Zero BIG quilts have I completed – started some – have enough blocks for some – but finished none. Sigh…

    —Jane on July 9, 2018

    Loretta on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve been quilting for over 35 years. I’ve made over 100 very large quilts (queen size or larger). I love making large quilts. I often piece backings from scraps from the tops. I’m a big fan of Holly taylor and would love to win her book and fabric.

    —Emily on July 9, 2018

    —Maria L Zook on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 5 large quilts (1 in 1978 and the rest in the last 7 years) and have 3 in process at the moment. I’ve made quite a few baby quilts, too. Scraptastic looks like a good book for using my stash better than I have been. That fabric is in my favorite colors and would make a great quilt for my living room, which is decorated with a lodge theme.

    —MARSHA RANSOM on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 1 king and 2 queen sized quilts plus a number of baby quilts. I’m about 50% pieces back vs solid.

  • I have completed 4 large quilts, I love piecing my backs for even for smaller quilts.

    —Tamara Isaacs-Smith on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one large quilt, My mission was to use up leftover fabric, i am a new quilter and this was a challenge for me. This session on “how to piece a quilt back” would have come in so handy for me at that time. I managed to finish the quilt with great difficulties, but am practicing on smaller items like table toppers etc. thank you for your help!

    —Linda Leckie on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve only done three big quilts-two twin and one king! I prefer smaller baby quilts or wall hangings. Almost instant gratification;-)

    —Anne Rickerby on July 9, 2018

    —Paula on July 9, 2018
  • Hate to admit that have only totally finished one quilt (for my granddaughter’s graduation). Cannot count how many are in various stages and ready to be quilted. Time to get busy. Thanks for your giveaway. Ann

    —Ann Marrison on July 9, 2018
  • Since last October when I started quilting again I have made 14 large quilt tops that were quilted by a fellow member of quilts of valor. I just love making them and for such a worthy cause. It was about 30 years ago since I made quilts for family members. Do not recal how many started quilting in high school. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Colleen on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t made any large quilts yet, but I have my "stash" pile waiting! 🙂

    Kelly on July 9, 2018

    —Linda Brennan on July 9, 2018
  • I have been quilting since the. 1970’s and have made many quilts plus have a lot that aren’t finished. My goal last year was to get these finished. That doesn’t count the smaller projects I’ve made through the years. I love the pieced backs shown in this book.

  • I’ve made approx. 10 total queen and king size quilts over the past 3 years.Thank you for offering the free drawing.

    —Carolyn on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed at least 15 big quilts.

    —Sherry Sartin on July 9, 2018
  • I have made dozens of large quilts… Love the idea of using "leftovers" to piece a backing.

    —SusanB on July 9, 2018
  • I’m actually working on 2 king size quilts right now. Most of the others I have made have been twin size or lap quilts. Love the book & the fabric!

    —Carol Gearey on July 9, 2018
  • I have no idea! I have a king-sized bed that I have made many for plus many double & queen-sized quilts. I used to be part owner of a quilt
    shop, so I have made many, many samples over the years. My favorite quilts have always been scrap quilts & my biggest dislike has always been backings. But I love to see backings that have imagination!

    —Kathy M on July 9, 2018
  • I am working on my largest quilt now, a king size, but it’s a quilt as you go so I won’t have to quilt it after it’s together. Other than this one, I’ve only done twin and throw size quilts.

    —Angel Hawks on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made six large quilts. Most of them were hand quilted. Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

    —LeahK on July 9, 2018
  • I have never made anything that big! Yikes!

    —Jane on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve just made lap and crib size quilts, as well as table runners and wall hangings. No BIG quilts.

    —AS on July 9, 2018
  • I’m going with 20 in the 12 years I have been quilting. They do get harder to maneuver on the machine as the years go by and my body gets older. Still lots of fun.

    —Betsy Lewis on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 2 queen size quilts that I have had long arm quilters quilt. Otherwise I make throw size, 50 x 60 down to baby quilts and machine quilt on my Phaff.

    —Kathleen on July 9, 2018
  • Two, both for wedding presents, and starting my third!

    —The Quilted Dog on July 9, 2018
  • I am in the process of making two large quilts at the moment and they are my first really large ones. I would love to win this! What a great giveaway!

    —Christine E on July 9, 2018
  • 91 x 91 is about the biggest I can manage on my longarm. I’d say I have made about 30 and many times I have used up my excess fabric on the backs. I’ve even used a charm pack on one to enlarge the backing enough. The judges at the local fair look forward to seeing what I have done on the back, I try not to disappoint.

    —Stephanie Woodward on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 5 big quilts and have several more in process.

    —Cindy Rolfs on July 9, 2018
  • I have never used flannels on a quilt to date. These are beautiful. Love the pattern on the front of Stashtastic!

    —Sherry Newcombe on July 9, 2018
  • I have only done one twin size quilt so far. I am gradually working up to doing bigger things.

    —Sharon Aannerud on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve only made one large quilt. It was a queen size for my mom,

    —Denise Cabral on July 9, 2018
  • A queen size is about all I can manage. I think I’ve made about 30.

    —Stephanie Woodward on July 9, 2018
  • I’m working on my first big quilt now. Mostly it’s been lap quilts or table runners so far. Love Doug Leko’s designs!

    —Cathy B. on July 9, 2018
  • Probably around 20 and 2 of them were king sized. Don’t need any more!

    —Judy Purcell on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one king-sized quilt. The top was fun to make, I did a backing using fabric from the front. The worst part was pressing both to get ready for quilting. I mostly make lap-size/wall hanging quilts.

    —Betsy on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed over 30 quilts over the years, shared with friends and family. There are paper pieced, regular pieced, quilted, and on very early ones tied with yarn. I love the quilts and I love using my sewing machine. Fabric is a great calling in my life, and it must be cut up, matched up, and put together!

    —Sue A Whitney on July 9, 2018
  • I completed one full-sized quilt plus several children’s quilts and one throw size. I will be starting another full-size quilt shortly. I have been quilting since 2011 and enjoy doing them. Would really like to win this book and stash.

    —Peggy T on July 9, 2018
  • This is a great give away. Love the fat quarter samples and the book would help with some great ideas for future quilts.

    —Deborah Lowther on July 9, 2018
  • I think I’ve finished about a dozen big quilts. The key word here is finished. I have countless UFOs … even some from other quilters. I’m hoping Doug’s method of piecing quilt backs will get me moving towards finishing some on those UFOs.

    —Sue McG on July 9, 2018
  • in my 27 years I have made at least 10 bed quilts and working on my first King size quilt now. I love quilting!

    —Lori on July 9, 2018
  • I have not made any large quilts yet.

    —Kristen on July 9, 2018
  • 5 big quilts and many more planned!

    —Amy W on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed at least 4 big quilts and pieced the back of at least one. I’m sure I will end up making more large quilts.

    Joel S on July 9, 2018
  • I have sewed 8 large quilts for my family and many more for my church family.

    —Pat Kaiser on July 9, 2018
  • Unfortunately, I haven’t kept track of all of my quilts – not even pictures of some. Now I know better! I’d say I’ve made 10 or 12 BIG quilts – queen sized. Lots more if you include twin sized.

    —Robin Harvey on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve finished 11 bed-size quilts I think. I have an additional one going to the LAQ today. I think 5 of those were hand-quilted.

    —Suzanne on July 9, 2018
  • Thanks for the giveaway, I have made at least 15 BIG quilts!!

    —Pat Murphy on July 9, 2018
  • To me, queen size is large, and I have made several. I always struggle making calculations for backing, so the pieced method sounds like a perfect solution.

    —Sharon K on July 9, 2018
  • Don’t have an exact count, but I would guess around 20.

    —JoAnne on July 9, 2018
  • Hello,I have’nt made a really large quilt as I find anything over 60” by 60” is more than I can manage on my machine. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —LINDA Douglas on July 9, 2018
  • I have made only three queen size quilts so far. I finished one king also. To many twins to count!

    —Karen mulkey on July 9, 2018
  • I have done 15-20 large quilts since I retired. I have pieced some of the backings and loved the way they turned out.

    —Freda on July 9, 2018
  • I have made at least 10 large quilts. Three of those were wedding gifts for family members!

    —Diane Fields on July 9, 2018
  • Big quilts made? Several. Totally completed? only a couple.
    I find it hard to quilt on my small machine.
    Thank-you for the fabulous giveaway.

    —laura mitchell on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made about ten large quilts. I like bed-size quilts, big enough for come snuggling underneath!

    —Susan Stanton on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 3 king-sized quilt tops–don’t really enjoy the quilting process so I send my quilts out to quilting groups or longarmers. I’ve got about 4 quilts in progress right now–not sure when they will be done! Thanks for the opportunity to with giveaway–it is an awesome collection.

    —Carol A. LaPorte on July 9, 2018
  • The biggest one I completed was 120″ x 120″. A couple that were 108 x 108 and a half dozen tops that aren’t quilted yet.

    —Denise Laverriere on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve completed 6 big quilts and have 3 more large quilts in various stages of completion currently in my WIP cupboard. I made a king sized bedspread for our bed and it took me a year but I love the finished project.

    —Elizabeth M. on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several large size quilts as well as smaller sizes and many wall hangings, table toppers and runners. I especially love the quilt shown on the cover of the book as those colors really appeal to me. I also like more traditional patterns rather than modern. Would love to win!

    —Ruth Vaughan on July 9, 2018
  • In my 30+ years, I have lost track to the number of big quilts that I have made. I would estimate it at 30+. I have 2 in progress now. I have made many backings out of combinations of fabric pieces. This book would give me lots more of new ideas. Would love to win this prize!!

    —Nancy Harvey on July 9, 2018
  • Completed? About 6. Started? About another 12.

    —Linda Ahn on July 9, 2018
  • I have probably made about 20 large quilts. I like quilts to be used and the men in my family are tall so even a throw size to me as about a twin.

    —Deena Drevs on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about 10 large quilts…some hand quilted, some straight lined on my domestic machine, and one was tied with embroidery floss.

    —Teri N on July 9, 2018
  • I have made around 150 quilts but only a dozen or so have been large size. I prefer working on baby and children quilts to donate to family shelters.

    —Joan H. on July 9, 2018
  • Not many. The ones I have made were given as gifts.

    —Velma Race on July 9, 2018
  • My first ever quilt was a double/queen size. I didn’t know any better. Since then I’ve done a few more large quilts, including the king on our bed right now.

    —Deb M on July 9, 2018
  • Since 1994, I’ve made approximately 25 queen and king size quilts, and quilted all but one on my domestic sewing machine. I hand quilted one that was 95 x 95 inches because I hadn’t learned to machine quilt yet; it took me over a month.

    —Celeste Delostrinos on July 9, 2018
  • I’m terrible about keeping track of how many quilts I’ve made, but have made quite a few large ones. What a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Debby on July 9, 2018
  • Ten and have at least five in process. Lots more planned!!!! I need to live to be 200 years old. 🤔

    —Janice Todd on July 9, 2018
  • Working on my first one, 120×120.

    —Cathy Low on July 9, 2018
  • I think I’ve made about 10 queen size quilts. Every time I make one, I swear I’m only going to make lap size from now on, but you know how that goes. Great giveaway – thanks.

    —Pat S. on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one or two queen sized but I usually make smaller quilts. What a great giveaway!

    —Delinda on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve only completed two that were bedsized. I live in Arizona and don’t really need bed quilts (except for show when company comes!). I have a lot of couch throws and wall quilts, tablerunners etc.

    —Nancy McFall on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 11 or more big quilts. Have 5 more ready to go. Love to quilt, just need more time!

    —Linda Nuttmann on July 9, 2018
  • I’m about to finish my second big quilt. First one was for my niece. Thus one is for our bed.

    —Inger Martinson on July 9, 2018
  • I love scrappy backs. But, it is like making another quilt. I love Moda fabrics.

    —Candy Garrido on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished 3 large quilts and have several in the planning stages.

    —Stephanie L. on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several queen size quilts all by hand. Hand pieced and hand quilted. Thinking of the next one.

    —Sandi Conkli on July 9, 2018
  • I’m about to finish my second big quilt. The first was for my niece. Thisone is for our bed.

    —Inger Martinson on July 9, 2018
  • I have only quilted one queen Quilt and nothing larger. I have quilted several baby size and lap size quilts, even trying my hand at the quilt as you go method to make quilting a larger quilt less unwieldy with mixed results. I have a few larger sized quilts in the works that I hope to complete in the next year.

    —Phyllis Richard on July 9, 2018
  • None, but my quilts are getting bigger! Thanks for the great tips, and giveaway!

    Denise L. on July 9, 2018
  • what’s BIG? I’ve completed 2 King quilts and 3 queen.

  • Two….second in the making!

    —Inger Martinson on July 9, 2018
  • I have just finished one since I have just started quilting again and look forward to trying this.

    —Dorothy Harkleroad on July 9, 2018
  • I have made a lot of big quilts but it isn’t easy working with so much bulk.

    —Christi on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 1 big quilt as a block of the week blog project and enjoy having it. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win.

    —Cindy Berry on July 9, 2018
  • I have make over 200 quilts that are large and a number that are smaller

    Corliss Okerstrom on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve completed 6 BIG quilts. I’ve pieced my first REALLY BIG King top but finding a backing to fit keeps this top in the UFO shelf 😢 How happy am I to receive your email today on Doug Leko’s tips?!? 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Thank you & I believe I can piece a backing from leftover fabrics then get this REALLY BIG quilt off the shelf and onto my bed 🤗

    So glad our post came at the right place, right time for you, Kriss! –Jenny

    —Kriss on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 20+ BIG quilts. All of them needed pieced backs. These are great suggestions!

    —Jean on July 9, 2018
  • I have 2 large quilts started, and I think this book can help me finish them! Thanks for a chance to win this giveaway!

    —Mary Jo on July 9, 2018
  • I think I have completed over 50 big quilts. Thanks for the walk down memory lane as I tried to estimate how many!

    —Virginia in AK on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 5 big and several lap size quilts, but I love making art quilts. I always piece the backs to make them even more interesting.

    —Jackie on July 9, 2018
  • I have sewn several large quilts, and it seems they sit awhile until I find the right backing. Never thought of using fat quarters! And I have lots of those! Thanks Doug for the tip!

    —Jan Martinson on July 9, 2018
  • None. But hope to soon.

    Carolyn Epting on July 9, 2018
  • Quilt backs are a challenge. Great ideas. Love working with flannels, so cozy.

    —Anita Allen on July 9, 2018
  • How many large quilts? Over the 40 years od quilting I’ve made at least 40-50

    —Pam H on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve lost count of the large quilts since I started making twin or larger quilts for charity. At least 10 in the last two years.

    —Sally Howard on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made literally hundreds of quilts in the last forty plus years, so it’s hard to say how many big quilts I have made. I quilted at least three king size quilts on my sewing machine before I got my first Handi-Quilter about twenty years ago. I love Doug’s quilt designs. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Sharon on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve only made two king size quilts. One was a giant picnic blanket (also perfect for making couch forts) and one that is on my bed right now.

    —Shannon on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 4 big quilts. I do more small projects.

    —Sharon on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made somewhere between 15-20 Queen and King quilts. Some as gifts to family members and some for home use. The most creative quilt back I made was using 2 1/5″ strips in varying lengths of the fabrics that were used on the front. This resulted in a double-faced quilt. My husband loves it!

    —Louise on July 9, 2018
  • I made my first quilt at 11 years old. It was a twin size. I have it hanging on a quilt ladder in my hallway. I progressed to queen size and made quilts for our California king bed. I have 15 displayed and used all the time. Others I have given away. Quilting brings joy to everyone.

    —Linda B. on July 9, 2018
  • Great ideas for large backings. Love working with flannel.

    —Anita Allen on July 9, 2018
  • So far, I have completed only 7 quilts since I am new to quilting, and they are about 60×90. I enjoy your blog and Instagram posts.

    —Janie Summers on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one queen size quilt, a full-bed size quit and then several twin or throw size quilts. I keep discovering new ideas. I often use leftover fabric from the front to piece a simpler design on the back. I currently have a couple of requests for quillows, so piecing the back is a must.

    —Kathy Wilkinson on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 8 or 9 queen size and 3 full size. Would love to try flannel!

    —Kay on July 9, 2018
  • I have made more than thirty big quilts over the last decade. I have had to piece several backings for them. Sometimes the back looks as good as the fronts of the quilts. I consider those two-for- one.

    —Jackie Wisherd on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 14 large quilts if you count only queen of larger, but many more of you also include all quilts. Thanks for the chance on this awesome giveaway!

    —Jill Majers on July 9, 2018
  • What a great idea. Even ordering wide fabric, many times it isn’t wide enough so using scraps is not only clever, it is money saving as the wide fabic is usually more expensive. Thanks for the info.

    —Randi Kemper on July 9, 2018
  • I make lots of bed-size quilts so I have to piece almost all my backs. Not sure how many I’ve made so far.

    —Diane on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t made a queen or king size quilt.The largest has been twin size. I had a quilt shop and most of my quilts were wall size samples. Thanks for the opportunity to enter such a great give away. I’ve never worked with flannel or having to piece a large backing.

    —Phyllis Parsons on July 9, 2018
  • I am just getting brave enough to make larger quilts!

    —Cherie L Kovacs on July 9, 2018
  • I have made quite a few in my head, but alas not 1 in real life.

    —Susan on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made a couple of queen size quilts, and a few twin sized. Mostly, I make large throw sized quilts. Doug’s suggestions for quilt backs would work for all sizes, not just large ones!

    Barbara Johnson on July 9, 2018
  • What a nice challenge .. good luck to everyone. I’ve made many big quilts and still going since 1975.

    Elizabeth MacomberAo on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve probably made about 10 queen sized quilts. Doug has great patterns so this book looks like a good one. I love pieced backs on quilts of all sizes.

    —Lisa Marie on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 2 large quilts but started probably 20 others that are still in the block stage and fabric/kits for more. Maybe I need a "quilt closer"

    —Sherri on July 9, 2018
  • Only 4 Queen size.

    —Dixie on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 4 or 5 big quilts so far.

    —Janet Beyea on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one-patchwork only-and loved the idea of expanding to make more than a throw quilt.,

    —Ann Parazin on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 6 large quilts and 2 more are in progress.

    —Linda on July 9, 2018
  • Right now I’m working on a round of large quilts for nieces & nephews. Four out of 6 done. Not to mention grandson projects…

    —Connie K on July 9, 2018
  • So far I have only completed one queen size quilt and a couple of other large ones. Most of my quilts are”for because” quilts. There are made because I want to make them and usually I don’t have a specific purpose so the size does not matter. I do love to have a “happy back” or pieced back on my quilts.

    —Pamela Taylor on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished only two queen sized quilts, and I have bought the fabric for them. This is such a brilliant idea! I could have saved some money and used my leftover fabric!

    —Rubi Wood on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished two large quilts. The first was memory quilt of my 50th wedding anniversary party that everyone signed a square and I put it together. It now sits on our bed.

    The second was a graduation quilt for my grandson who had live in Rawanda for a semester while his mother gave service to the war-ravaged country. I made the quilt with fabric they brought back from Africa.

    Recently I have made a few baby quilts which are less challenging.

    —Janet Chevan on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made four queen-sized quilts and five twin-sized quilts. The rest (a lot!) are lap quilts or baby quilts. I would love to try making a pieced backing; have thought about it but just haven’t done it!

    —Dottie MACOMBER on July 9, 2018
  • Around 20? And at least as many baby quilts.

    —Anne L. Rightler on July 9, 2018
  • I have made over 25 queen or larger quilts in the last 18 years. I love Doug Leko’s patterns and the fabric looks so cozy and fun.

    —Karen on July 9, 2018
  • 15 and maybe 5 baby quilts

    —Jessica Woods on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 1 big quilt and used wide fabric for the backing. I have just finished with my 2nd big quilt for my grandmother. I plan to try one of these options for the back!!

    —Andrea Bivins on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one queen size, one full bed size, and 6 twin bed size. Thank you for the chance. Love the book and the fabric stack.

    —Amy F on July 9, 2018
  • King/queen maybe 8, full 10, and throw size I’ve lost count!

    —Lena Truitt on July 9, 2018
  • Will have to order that book, never have a good idea doe a quilt backing, you always have the best books. I have ordered a few and have enjoyed them. thank you for web site

    —Patricia Holmes on July 9, 2018
  • None complete; one large top ready to do. Love the ideas for backing.

    —PAT on July 9, 2018
  • Out of the 100+ quilts I’ve made at least 50 have been bedsize quilts.

    —Connie F on July 9, 2018
  • At least a dozen that I can think of right now, maybe more. Sometimes I use wide backing fabric, sometimes I piece them. I love Doug’s with the scrappy panel down the center.

    —Julie Kennedy on July 9, 2018
  • I probably have made 15 or more queen bed size quilts. Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Doreen Gabe on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 2 or 3 large size quilts larger than lap size. Anxious to use some of the ideas in this book!

    —Marilyn on July 9, 2018
  • Only 7 queen or larger as I have them longarm quilted. I tend to focus more on large lap robe size, and now wall quilts so I can do the quilting myself.

    —Barbara B on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished 2 full size quilts and 4 youth bed size quilts. I have many ufo’s which I am determined to finish. Plenty of fabric in my stash for the backs. This book by Doug Leko is what I need.

    —T Denise Dobek on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 5 big quilts. 2 queen and 3 double bed size.

    —Linda Hulen on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about 5 larger quilts but yet to complete
    a queen or king size, which I REALLY want to do. But I have
    learned some fabulous techniques from my teacher, Katie Pedersen,
    to use up scraps from the front to incorporate into the back!!!

    —Marion Lisko on July 9, 2018
  • I have made at least a dozen or more large quits since I became a quilter 10 years ago. Some were for me, some for family. I love pieced backings, they add more character to quilts and are great for stash busting!

    —Janice on July 9, 2018
  • This will blow someone’s mind. I have made 7 queen-size quilts for our sons and seven queen-size quilts for their wives. Then two years ago I made bed-size quilts as Christmas gift for each of our 24 grand children. And 8 which have been received by friends who are near and dear plus a quilt for my sister and one quilt each for 2 of my brothers. My dear husband finally figured out how much we needed a long-arm and now it is even easier for me to complete my personal works of art. Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Janey on July 9, 2018
  • I love the idea of using FQ I haven’t used for the backing.

    Please enter me in your drawing. Thank you!

    —Julie Anne on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t finished any large quilts. I have about 20 queen size to flimsy.

    —Julie Anne on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed only two large quilts. I’m more comfortable with lap or crib size for the most part. I have used a pieced backing on both smaller sizes though – especially those that were scrappy to begin with.

    —SandyMay on July 9, 2018
  • I mostly make big quilts and the back are usually harder for me than the front. Thanks for chance.

    —Cheryl on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 2 really large quilts, and several smaller quilts

    —Denise Lamy on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 2 really big quilts and several smaller ones.

    —Denise Lamy on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t counted for a long time but probably 150 or so I all sizes-over a lot of years! But I used to piece quilts only so I would have something to hand quilt as that was my passion. Gradually I have been won over to the wonder of creating the top. I now long arm my quilts and always have 2-3 in my head to make as soon as the current one is complete. I’m addicted!!!

    —Karen Ganote on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 8 big quilts. good idea for the backs, thanks

    —Sandi Kelly on July 9, 2018
  • I have made at least 10 quilts that required pieced backs. Great ideas for a scrappy back!

    —Sherry Davis on July 9, 2018
  • 5 completed big quilts and one waiting to be quilted and and several others nearing completion stage.

    —Wendy P on July 9, 2018
  • I have the fabric waiting for a king size. I’ve said this is the year. I hope it will lead to more in the future. Several twins have been finished but the beds are getting bigger so I’ll have to move up

    Linda Niederstadt Zakrzewski on July 9, 2018

    —Lois Cave on July 9, 2018
  • I have only made three large quilts! I usually make lap size, table runners or table squares. I really enjoy this website! 😃

    —Elsie on July 9, 2018
  • Double bed quilts are the largest quilts I’ve made. I’ve found a marvelous machine quilter and so plan to tackle something larger soon. In the past have made many baby and lap quilts as I can quilt those myself. PS…I love to use scraps in my backings…makes a nice surprise when the quilts are turned around.

    —Sophie Hart on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 5 quilts that required pieced backings.

    —Lynette Wilson on July 9, 2018
  • I have made a few large quilts that I gave as gifts. Lots of lap quilts, wall hangings, and many other projects. My favorite quilt I made about 20 years ago is a bed size I made from all flannel, front and back. We use it every winter on ourbed. Nothing cozier!!!

    —Karen F. on July 9, 2018
  • I estimate 25-30 BIG quilts…like wrestling with a wet polar bear…but done.

    —Melody Lutz on July 9, 2018
  • Love the quilts in this book! I frequently make queen and king size quilts…..probably have done over two dozen. Yikes!

    —Marilyn Rich on July 9, 2018
  • Only one, so far

    —Ld on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed 6 queen, have 3 king in the works. I love making table runners, wall hangings, and lap& twin size quilts.

    Linda Sprague on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed approximately a dozen large quilts. I never think to piece the backs–usually I get a good sale on something at the fabric shop. I did, however, piece the back to a mantle runner and was quite happy with the results.

    —Gloria Albright on July 9, 2018
  • The majority of the quilts I make (thinking 80%) are queen sized quilts. Only the quilts I make for charity are smaller (baby quilts & lap robes). And yes—my backs are usually scrappy!

    —Marcia Burt on July 9, 2018
  • Many, many years ago, before I knew anything about quilting guidelines I made a king size log cabin for a boyfriend. The front was red, white and black and was quite impressive if I do say so myself. The back was a hodge podge of left over pieces. Kind of looked OK in a patch work kind of way. Have no idea where the quilt or the ‘boyfriend’ is – a learning experience all around. I have never made such a large quilt again, nor have I made a quilt for a ‘here for a good time’ guy. Good lessons learned but I can see now how nice a pieced back can be. Great ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Lynn D'Arcy on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 queen-sized quilts, so far.

    —Beverly Kinney on July 9, 2018
  • I have just finished a King size quilt (my 1st and last king size) I made it in quarters and quilted it with what I thought was a large enough piece of fabric for the whole quilt -NOT true. I am not happy with the last 2 quarters but still think it is fun. I have also made 2 queen size with enough fabric for the whole backing lol !

    —ELIZABETH CROSS on July 9, 2018
  • Five big quilts are finished, 20ish small quilts and table runners and the same in quilt tops that are still without backs but these ideas may help rectify the problem.

    —Marilyn Holley-Stupka on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished 2 quilts – a queen and a king. I have many tops pieced waiting for me to quilt them.

    —Sylvia Rainey on July 9, 2018

    —LINDA on July 9, 2018
  • I’m a pretty new quilter, but absolutely hooked! I’ve finished 7 king/queen quilts and 4 twin, as well as helping my daughter in law with her first quilt, also king size. Never occurred to me to start small LOL

    —Marcia Kestner on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished one big quilt. I hand piece and hand quilt, so it takes quite a bit of time. I enjoy it all!!

    —Linda on July 9, 2018
  • I have finished 2 large quilts, but have a few that are unfinished (no backing) they are on my someday list. I have made some laptop quilts and I think the scrappy back would look good on those also!

    —Linda on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t made any large quilts yet.

    —Denise Campbell on July 9, 2018
  • I have never made a large quilt. Everything I do is crib size. But mainly what I do is table runners or table squares. I prefer small things.

    —Angela Bowling on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about five but my favourites is on our extra large queen bed but soon I will need to replace this too, but oh so cosy sleeping under it. I would love to make a scrappy backing for a quilt.

    —Margaret Dalmer on July 9, 2018
  • My mother and I have made one king-size quilt and several queen or full-size quilts, as well as 8 baby quilts. I have also made several quilts myself, queen size or smaller. I have sometimes pieced the backs in similar ways as suggested here.

    —Marla Comstock on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve completed 5 or 6 bedsize quilts, but they are finished with knotting. I have pieced backs using part of the top fabric. Mostly what I piece are smaller ones for our church group to finish, around 40-50 a year. I like the patterns in the give away book.

    —Judy on July 9, 2018
  • I think around a dozen bed quilts. Have many more on my to do list!

    —Elaine on July 9, 2018

    —Katie Peterson on July 9, 2018

    —Nicole Sender on July 9, 2018
  • Of my finished quilts, I have made about 30. I have about another 30 in various stages of completion. Most of my quilts have hand applique on them, which is why I don’t have more.

    —Janet T on July 9, 2018
  • I often shy away from big quilts because I hate to think of making the really big back for it. Piecing the back is a really good solution to the problem, and non-quilters are usually very impressed that you have made a "two-sided" quilt.

    —Lerlene Nevaril on July 9, 2018
  • up until last year, all IU made were big quilts. Since I have been quilting since 1971, I’d have to sauy I have made about 35 big quilts.

    —DJ Weston on July 9, 2018

    Jeannine Snyder on July 9, 2018

    —Barbara D on July 9, 2018
  • I’ll bet I have made 15 to 20 large quilts. I mostly make queen size. I have always wanted to have a pieced back. It would really make the quilt very special and unique.

I wrote something earlier, but I don’t think it got submitted.

  • five lots of work but they people I give them to loved them and made it worth all the effort

    —Kathy Luehrs on July 9, 2018
  • Over the years I would say 20-25 if not more. My problem is the quilts usually end up being bigger than I really thought. Last 2 quilts were a queen and a king size for family gifts. I usually end up giving away most of mine for gifts. I have a couple of ones I would like to make for self-sooner or later.

    —Peggy W on July 9, 2018
  • I have probably completed about a dozen large quilts but I have many more in various stages of finishedness

    —Kerry Grose on July 9, 2018

    —Joyce Jose on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 4 Kings and 6 Queen sized quilts. I have made a lot of throw size Quilts, too. All have been gifted to family &
    Friends since 1987. Always looking for new ideas. This looks like an interesting book.

    —Nancy Jo Marsden on July 9, 2018
  • Lap quilts and twin size quilts are the most frequent sizes I have made. The lap quilts are usually donated and the twins are gifts. I’m hoping to make a queen, the top is complete, it just needs quilting. Then, a king will be my huge project. For that, I will use a long arm which can be rented hourly. I don’t think I can manage it on my Domestic even though it has a large throat space.

    —Margaret Hahn on July 9, 2018
  • At least 6 or 7
    I love my butt to be covered and Imagine everyone else does too.

    -Wanda Branch July 9, 2018

    —Wanda Branch on July 9, 2018
  • I love to challenge myself and enjoy making large quilts king and queen size. The article on piecing backs is something I have never tried only because I don’t like to take away from the quilt top.. however I am up for a challenge and would love to give it ago..

    —Kathy Strumpel on July 9, 2018
  • Two are finished. There are several awaiting backing and quilting. I’ll get there! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —MoeWest on July 9, 2018
  • I would say about 60 if not a few more I started quilting 18 years ago and got totally addicted, most of those quilts have been given away. At pesent I am working on about 6 and
    have 5 finished tops that need to go to the quilter, I have only hand quilted one and a half.

    chris simmie on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t been keeping track of how many or what sizes I’ve made, but at least 4 or 5 big ones. My largest was 108″ x 108″. I did piece the back of a long throw one time. In the center a large panel, surrounded by a bunch of different pillow panels, and a brown swirly fabric to fill in and surround it all.

    —Meta Bonnell on July 9, 2018

    —Bev Mantova on July 9, 2018
  • I am working on my fifth queen or king size quilt – I haven’t quite decided! If I decide on king size, I will need to use the pieced backing, and I know it would look beautiful. If I go for king size it will be my second.

    —Janet G on July 9, 2018

    —Joan K on July 9, 2018
  • I usually make lap quilts or wall hangings but did complete 2 large quilts. I think a scrappy pieced back would be perfect for future projects!

    —Elaine C on July 9, 2018
  • My largest quilts so far have all been family weddings gifts…all have been queen size…6 so far one more coming up next year for my youngest son… He has asked for a king size…..all are Scrapy. That have a general theme. Relating to the likes & desires of the couple.
    This next quilt will have to go out for quilting because my machine is too small to manage a king size quilt. Most of the quilts I make are twin size or lap size… When I get a new longarm machine we will not be cutting down its length to fit my room…I just might have to have a new studio!!

    —Barbara Thomas on July 9, 2018
  • I have made quite a lot of quilt tops but only quilted a few!

    —Louise Haddon on July 9, 2018
  • Smaller quilts are my favorite–no big bed size.

    —Sharon on July 9, 2018
  • All my quilts seen to be big quilts of 80 inches square or larger. Might have something to do with using up the "stash" by making the quilts larger.

    —Barb Dwyer on July 9, 2018
  • I have completed dozens of large quilts and am always puzzling how to piece a big enough back. Thanks for the ideas and the draw.

    —Brenda C on July 9, 2018
  • I would say I have completed between 10 and 20 quilts full size or larger over the years. I like to have at least one (or two!) quilts on my bed to sleep under at night. I have a quilting machine now, which helps me be able to complete quilts faster and cheaper than quilting by check! I have often pieced backings for my quilts. It is time consuming but I always love the results–so much more interesting than a one-fabric back.

    —Gina on July 9, 2018
  • Have made 3 queen quilts. The rest are twin/throws.Would love to win flannel bundle and book.made one quilt with Scrappy back.

    Barb H. on July 9, 2018

    —Gail T on July 9, 2018
  • I have not kept track of the number. It is several quilts that I have made now. I made quilts for all the grandchildren as they graduated from high school. I have two that are ready for binding and one ready for backing. So I keep the quilts coming.

  • I’ve been blessed to finish 12 Big Quilts. I’ve been quilting for many years and make small and Big quilts for family and friends.

    —Rosalie B on July 9, 2018
  • Big quilts – oh my, must confess – zero
    Need some new bed quilts, but…..
    All those yards and yards of fabric are intimidating to me – don’t know where to begin, so I just don’t begin.

    Small quilts and quilted projects are what I sew. I buy big quilt patterns – just reduce the block size or make fewer blocks and I’m a happy girl.

    —Sandy luvmylogcabins on July 9, 2018
  • I actually don’t have an exact number, but it is definitely over 25 and I’m still going.

    —Gloria Meyer on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t done a large quilt by myself yet but I plan to do just that! I have done mostly utility quilts for children that will stand up to the wear and tear and rough and tumble like with a child loving it. Sue

    —Sue J. H. on July 9, 2018
  • 2 king, 4 queen, 6 twin.

    All the rest are throw size or baby quilts.

    I’d love to win. The book looks great and love the fat quarter bundle.

    —DM Diana on July 9, 2018
  • I have made 3 big quilts, I love them but at the end I have difficulty making or planning the backing. I really would love the book to help me along. Furthermore, my plans includes a flannel quilt. How great is that?

    —Althea Klosterman on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made just 3 large queen size quilts, 2 hand quilted and one by machine. All the rest have been twin, throw or baby quilts. Doug’s new book looks fantastic, like all his patterns. I’d love to have it along with this beautiful bundle!

    —Aggiequilter on July 9, 2018
  • I made a large scrappy quilt top out of my Mom’s double knit scraps when I was a teenager (she did the finishing). It was just random squares and rectangles. Since then I’ve done mostly wall hangings, but plan to make large quilts some day.

    —Linda H. on July 9, 2018
  • I mostly make King or Queen size Quilts for family or close friends. Hard to say exactly how many but I could guess 25. I love wall hangings also.

    —Jenell Lamb on July 9, 2018
  • I have no idea how many large quilts I have made but I have made lots of them for family, friends and our Church.

    —Velva on July 9, 2018
  • In the 6 years that I’ve been quilting, I have finished 3 queen size quilts and 3 twin size quilts. Right now I have 3 more queen size tops completed, they are just waiting for quilting. Plus a couple more that are larger than twin size, tops completed, waiting for quilting. And another queen size in the piecing process right now. Always busy! And I love every minute!

    —Jami Harwood on July 9, 2018
  • Queen size for my daughter.

    —Lisa on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made at least 25 bed size quilts as well as quite a few larger lap quilts. Once I get started making blocks, it’s hard to stop! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Loretta Watrrman on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several quilts, unknown number. I wish I would have documented all of the ones I have given away. Like in a scrapbook or on a database.

    —Cindy Shelley on July 9, 2018
  • I have made one semi big quilt.

    —Christine M on July 9, 2018
  • None – yet! But soon!

    —NancyB from Many LA on July 9, 2018
  • Only one–a queen sized t-shirt quilt that was pieced on both sides for my daughter. My next big one will be a bed quilt for my bed, I just haven’t found the fabrics yet! In between, many baby quilts, table runners, table toppers….

    —Jean on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made at least 5 big quilts, king size, about 120 by 120, and quite a few queen size, too. Most of my favorites are big. Great book, and I plan to use some scraps in backs, too. I also love wide backing fabric. Thanks for the inspiration.

    —Maryellen McAuliffe on July 9, 2018
  • I haven’t made any BIG quilts yet. I am still learning and have made only small quilts. I think it’s time for larger ones.

    —Angelia L. on July 9, 2018
  • I have made several quilts and finished them on my home machine, while battling cancer. But everyday I am in my quilt room sew another one. I have been in a rut to come up with some new designs for the backs. I thank Doug for some new ways of doing them. Thank you for the opportunity for this amazingly beautiful material, it is gorgeous. If I don’t win I will buy it and your book is on my list to get. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Cathy Barnes on July 9, 2018
  • I sew mainly baby quilts, but there are about 5 finished and 5 ready to quilt big quilt in my studio. Love to work on my quilts any time, but the quilting part with my home sewing machine is not so easy, especially on big quilts. This is not just art, but good phisical training too :o)

    Györgyi Varga on July 9, 2018
  • I have made about 10 queen or king size for family and myself. I’ve made a few for charity as well. Great free give-away today!

    —carol mandel on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 50+ large quilts over the years. I’ve pieced so many quilt backs with large and small pieces along with leftover blocks

    —Barb Scott on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 5 or 6 queen size or larger over the years and have 3 in progress.

    —Jackie Lewis on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made 5 or 6 queen size or larger over the years and actually have 3 in progress now.

    —Jackie Lewis on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made sooo many large quilts! King size plus seems to be my usual size. I’ve just started using a pieced backing and am encouraged to do it more often. Thanks for the pointers!

    —Rosemary on July 9, 2018
  • I’ve made at least five quilts, four were Queen size and one was King. Four were hand pieced and hand quilted and the fifth I got professionaly quilted because I’d never had gotten it under the needle on my domestic machine

    —Margaret Lee on July 10, 2018
  • It’s late, but I can think of 4-5.

    —Lisa Boles on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed 1 king quilt all of african fabrics and about 5 queen quilts.

    —Karen on July 10, 2018
  • I am just a beginning quilter and have not attempted a large quilt yet. I am gaining confidence and courage by practicing quilt piecing by making smaller projects like table runners, placemats, mug rugs, pillowcases, etc. Because I have a queen size bed, I will definitely be making a large quilt in the not too distant future.

    —Laurie Devers on July 10, 2018
  • I am working on a queen-sized quilt right now.

    —Cathy on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed one big quilt. It is a kingsized quilt made of 9 inch squares that are sewn together. I hand quilted it whole cloth style and it took about 1 year to complete! Thanks!

    —Delaine on July 10, 2018
  • I have done two large quilts and many small ones. I piece and quilt by hand so they take a good bit of time.

    —Margart Hynes on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve done three and I’m about to start a fourth.

    —Angela Schultz on July 10, 2018
  • I have made 6 king and 2 queen quilts. I still have not made a king quilt for my own bed. Made these quilts for my children, raising money for cancer research, a cancer survivor’s daughter, and a quilt to raise money for United Way.

    —Rita Radil on July 10, 2018
  • I did one king size quilt – one was enough! Several queen and double bed sized quilts were easier to handle. Mostly I do baby quilts and single bed quilts for my grandchildren. I would love to do more creative backs, and I have lots of scraps for the fronts.

    —Elana Schachter on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve made about 10 large quilts but have countless in the UFO process. I’d love to win your book since srappy-looking quilts are a favorite of mine but not necessary since today’s fabrics are designed to go together and we can create beautiful quilts from coordinating fabrics. The many fabrics included in a line of fabric are so exciting. When I started quilting there were no "lines of fabric" so scrappy looks were inevitable. Thanks for sponsoring this give-away.

    —Pam A on July 10, 2018
  • My largest was a flannel quilt I made for my husband–he loves it. All others have been for a twin or lap quilts.

    —Margaret Hillary on July 10, 2018
  • I only make big quilts. However saying that I must confess I don’t use them. I have four dogs who sleep with me and if I used my quilts, they would constantly be in the washer. I figure I will leave these to my many nieces and nephews as their inheritance as I spend all my money on material. I’m just about 75 years young and figure I can’t die for another 50 years as I have so many more quilts to make and the material to go with them.

    —Jean Potvin on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed at least 24 large quilts and I am working on two more for Christmas presents. I have a King Size out to be quilted right now.

    —Barbara on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve finished about 10 big quilts, and many baby or lap size quilts.

    —Shirley on July 10, 2018
  • I have quilted for over 30 years, so I don’t know how many. I never really counted.

    —Donna Mcdaniel on July 10, 2018
  • Too many to count! Probably well over 100.

    —Susan Torrington on July 10, 2018
  • I would say at least 20 plus lots of baby quilts and lap size! And that’s not counting the ones not yet quilted!

    —Diane on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed 3 large quilts, 2 were tee shirt quilts for grandchildren.

    —Becky DuBose on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve made at least 20 large quilts (one for each of 7 grandchildren and several for grandnieces and grandnephews)…also Quilts of Valor…and a few for myself. Currently I’m making a quilt to be given to a veteran going on a Honor Flight to Washington, DC

    —Barbara Timby on July 10, 2018
  • I don’t keep track, so I would say 15 large ones are completed and more awaiting me to quilt them, good thing fabric has a long shelf life!

    —Jenny on July 10, 2018
  • I have made two king quilts. My recent one is a Christmas quilt for my bed. 41 bear paw blocks in red with a white background. All 41 blocks are different reds!!
    I would enjoy the fabrics & book, they look very yummy!

    —Debbie on July 10, 2018
  • I lost count of the large quilts I have made. I remember at least 20, but there could be more.

    —Anna Marie Werner on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve only made 2 queen size quilts, but have a large, steampunk Halloween quilt in the beginning stages.

    —Kathy R on July 10, 2018
  • I have finished about 7 king size quilts, and 2 baby quilts. Each quilt is a stitch and prayer as with each stitch, I pray for the person I am making it for.

    —Jenny Spielman on July 10, 2018
  • Made more than I can count and from my very first one, I’ve pieced the backing using leftover blocks and fabric from the tops. I don’t like scrap quilts, I don’t make scrap quilts, and I don’t "collect" scraps. They all go into the backs of the quilts that "made" them! I hand quilt, machine quilt on a domestic, and, occasionally send one out to be quilted on a long arm.

    —Marlene Clausen on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve lost count of the large bed quilts made but I figure a least two dozen bed quilts not to mention throw-size and at least 30 baby quilts. I sure could use some ideas for pieced backings.

    —AnnaMarie Werner on July 10, 2018
  • I have made at least two dozen bed-sized quilts, maybe more. I lost count.

    —AnnaMarie Werner on July 10, 2018
  • I have made smaller projects, but as yet have not attempted a large quilt. I would love to win the contest and learn how.

    —Sue on July 10, 2018
  • About 6-8. I mostly make smaller things.

    —Carol W on July 10, 2018
  • None so far.

    —Sharon on July 10, 2018
  • I have made at least 6 large scrappy quilts and at least 12 smaller scrappy quilts. I love scraps and the challenge of making something beautiful from "leftovers".

    —Lori Burch on July 10, 2018
  • I have one finished! But, there are four tops waiting to be quilted, and at least six more in the piecing process!

    —Terry Kirk on July 10, 2018
  • I piece scraps of the same color as the top of my quilt for the backing. Some large some small. I try to use them by making an interesting back. Winning this contest would be so awesome

    —Mary Alm on July 10, 2018
  • Just started doing this. Would love more ideas to create

    —pam on July 10, 2018
  • too many to count. at least 40. just started doing the backs with leftovers. So fun!

    —pam on July 10, 2018
  • No BIG quilts yet! But I need to start making alot of them to use up my stash!

    —Jetta on July 10, 2018
  • I have made a dozen or more queen size quilts for myself or graduation gifts.

    —Pat D on July 10, 2018
  • Probably about 30 as I have been quilting a long time. I am just starting to used pieced backs though. I love the idea of using it up and getting it out of my stash. Your book looks wonderful. I’d love to win a copy!

    —Ruth on July 10, 2018
  • I have made at least 30 quilts as I have been quilting a long time. I have recently started using pieced backs. It’s good to use up the fabrics in the quilt. Your book looks wonderful and I would love to win a copy.

    —Ruth on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve been quilting since 1982 when you cut your fabric pieces with scissors. I guess finished about 40 quilt tops but not all of them are quilted.

    —Marie Walon on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve made two or three large quilt tops, but have not finished them. It’s sometimes a little overwhelming to finish these larger quilts.

    Jocelyn on July 10, 2018
  • I love the quilt ideas! And thanks for the chance to win the fabric and book!

    —Karen Nelson on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve completed 6 big quilts so far. I plan to make lots more!

    —Linda Webster on July 10, 2018
  • An almost Queen is the largest I’ve done so far. Mostly baby, throws and twin are my usual sizes. Very inspiring creative backs from Doug. Thanks.

    —Marie on July 10, 2018
  • Only two big quilts so far, and they were a lot of fun!

    —Heather on July 10, 2018
  • Too many to count. Until the past few years, most of my quilts have been queen-size or larger. Now most of them are at least lap or twin bed size. The largest was 120″ x 120″, for that one I had to piece an extra wide backing.

    —Nancy on July 10, 2018
  • I make at least 6 BIG quilts per year and then double that for throw size quilts per year. I usually buy wide backs for the really big quilts but like the idea of doing the strips like those shown in example one from Doug. Thanks for sharing the idea!

    —Sue F on July 10, 2018
  • I have made a dozen large quilts. I have lots of tops to quilt and backings to make.

    —Renata on July 10, 2018
  • Love the fabric bundle. Sew far queen size or bigger quilts that I have made about 25 twin couch or double size well over 100 . I have pieced backing before and love the look like 2 quilts on one .thanks for the chance to win some goodies

    —Annette S on July 10, 2018
  • Even though I usually make small quilts and projects, I have completed six larger quilts on my machine. Love Doug’s scrappy quilt backing. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Bonnie on July 10, 2018
  • Those books look wonderful! I would love to win them!!

    Linda Wrede on July 10, 2018
  • One king, several queen-size and about 15 to 20 lap size. I like lap-size quilts! I have pieced the backs on many of my quilts with leftover fabric from the quilt and have sometimes incorporated a few blocks in the back. I have one quilt that I bought so much fabric for it I Pieced a quilt for the back so it is definitely reversible!

    Diane H. on July 10, 2018
  • I caught the quilting fever, but I don’t want to be cured! Having too much fun!

    —Susan and Kevin Clark on July 10, 2018
  • I make quilts of all sizes and haven’t kept track of how many of each size.

    —Elizabeth Olson on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve only been quilting since I retired from teaching in 2008. I make mostly queen/king size quilts and baby quilts as gifts. I’ve filled one complete quilting journal with pictures and information about my quilts, so I’m guessing maybe 20 large quilts.

    Karen Pollard

    —Karen Pollard on July 10, 2018
  • Two medium sized quilts and 3 baby quilts and a,dollsized quilt machine done, hand quilted, love to win this giveaway😊

    —KIM LEWIS on July 10, 2018
  • I have made a number of BIG quilts. My first quilt was crib size; my second was a king. I made a 117” square sampler quilt for my mom. And years ago my husband commission me to make a rag Quilt long and wide enough to snuggle all (then 5) of us on family nights when we watched a movie together. That beast is huge and requires a trip to the laundromat to wash. Working on two king size quilts right now I love big quilts.

    —Nyla-Jean on July 10, 2018
  • I have made at least 15-20 large quilts besides numerous wall hangings etc. Several still need to be quilted, however, I’m working on that too. I have pieced several backings for my large quilts and love the look besides using up some uglies from my stash.

    Jeanette Jensen on July 10, 2018
  • gosh, I have never counted, but I would say around 30. I tend to make quilts that are full size or bigger

    —Nancy C on July 10, 2018
  • Just finished my first!

    —Janice on July 10, 2018
  • do I count tops that haven’t been quilted yet LOL! I would think my number would be over 55 for big quilts.

    —Nancy on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve done about 8-10 big ones so far, in my 6 years quilting. I have always pieced the backs, but nowhere as nicely thought out as Doug’s–great inspiration! Thanks for the give-away!

    —Lill on July 10, 2018
  • NO large quilts long throws completed three.

    —Wilda Ernst on July 10, 2018
  • Just one but I have another in the works!

    —QuiltWench on July 10, 2018
  • If we count the ones not yet quilted, it’s probably about 25 for me.

    —Janice on July 10, 2018
  • I have made 6+ throw sized quilts but I prefer larger quilts and have made around 20 which includes Wedding and quilts for my family.
    I prefer a variety to fit my full bed.

    —Jill Meador on July 10, 2018
  • The largest quilt I’ve made was 102 x 115 inches. I’ve probably made a dozen queen size quilts and tons of twin/lap sizes.

    Joy on July 10, 2018
  • I’ve done 15 large quilts, but have only pieced one back to have a two sided quilt. Was quite interesting to do.

    —Mary Brott on July 10, 2018
  • Actually finished? Five — but at least ten UFOs!

    —Susan Israel on July 10, 2018
  • Yes, thank you, a book on backings, what a great idea. I need someone to direct me to finely a sweet way to finish a large quilt.

    —Althea Klosterman on July 10, 2018
  • I have made 2 king size quilts and at least 8 queen size quilts. I have 4 more queen size ready to quilt and as soon as I get my longarm serviced and ready I will start on them. I have about 12 to 15 lap and/or twin size ready to go. I like to sew a bunch up and then quilt them when the weather is too hot or rainy to go outside. Thanks soo much for the give-away.

    —Lynda Lott on July 10, 2018
  • I have made several large quilts as wedding gift for family and friends. My first large quilt was made for a 50th birthday present for my self. I had it professional quilted and am still using it today. To do a large quilt I have found that if I break it down into workable sections it is easier to do. For very large quilts I do them in 4 sections then join then together into the only quilt.

    —Jan Prentice from Australis on July 10, 2018
  • One. It was my first! But I love it and I learned a lot, I’ve been wanting to try a pieced back…Doug has great ideas for fun backs and a great way of using your scraps!

    —Annalee on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed 2 large quilts. The backs were a challenge!

    —Nicole Sender on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed 2 large quilts. I found the backs to be a challenge!

    —Nicole Sender on July 10, 2018
  • I have completed 2 large quilts. I won’t say how many are patiently waiting to be finished!

    —Nicole Sender on July 10, 2018
  • One for each son, one for each season for my bed & some for disaster relief. I’d say a bakers dozen plus one king size all quilted on my domestic sewing machine.

    —Marlene Bonner on July 11, 2018
  • I must have made at least 20 BIG quilts, the last being a King Size!

    —Sue Cahill on July 11, 2018
  • I have lots of leftovers since I have made at least twelve bed size quilts. I am always looking for ways to use the leftovers.

    —Cheryl Buoni on July 11, 2018
  • I’m sewing the binding on my largest quilt yet – to fit my queen size bed with a floor-length drop. I wish I had seen this post earlier – I loved the sashes down the middle of the backing.

    —Teresa on July 11, 2018
  • I tend to think I have to make every quilt just a bit bigger. Why? Maybe it is the challenge, maybe I want everyone to be totally enveloped with a quilt. With no drafty opportunities! So, most all of my quilts end up being at double bed size and larger. Thanks so much for sharing your treasures.

    —Denise Wood on July 11, 2018
  • I’ve made three. I make mostly mid size quilts for charity. I love scrap quilt patterns. I run my quilt guild’s "Previously Loved Quilt Fabric" table, and I’m my best customer!

    —Pamela Drummond on July 11, 2018
  • I have made at least twenty large quilts and usually do not make particularly interesting backs. I find these, in the book, to be very interesting — going to give this method a try 🙂

    —Carol Schon on July 11, 2018
  • I’ve made many large quilt tops, but have only finished 3. This book looks like just what I need to finish up a stack more!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway and I really hope I win!

    —susan on July 11, 2018
  • Most quilts I have made do not get pieced on the back (I tend to have different stashes- including "backing " fabric). Pieced the last quilt I did as I wrote on a piece of material and wanted to include it..

    —Karen on July 11, 2018
  • I believe I’ve made about 18. Quilts for our home and gifts for my children and grandchildren. Several for quilt guild projects to give to people in need after natural disasters.

    —Sherrie H on July 11, 2018
  • Ive made about 6 full to queen size quilts, 10 or so lap to twin size, and uncounted baby quilts! I usually piece the backs from fat quarters or yardage. It seems better to use up orphan blocks and extra yardage that way.

    —Jean Blythe on July 11, 2018
  • I definitely need to "go BIG"! The largest quilt I’ve made was 68 x 84. I make comfort quilts for our veterans and also for sick children. I could make more in the same amount of time by using some of these great patterns using larger blocks. Thanks for a chance to win!

    —Judy W. on July 11, 2018
  • Only a few, but I plan to do many more big quilts.

    —JennyH on July 11, 2018

    —Arloene Morgan on July 11, 2018

  • I have made more than 25 big quilts and four were hand quilted and I machine quilted the rest on my shortarm quilting machine. Lots of twin quilts quilts, wall hangings and miniature quilts. Thank you for the chance to win!

    —Sheila Fernkopf on July 11, 2018
  • Well I guess that depends on what you mean by COMPLETED…. quilted & ready to put on a bed? well, maybe 10 or 12….. If you mean the top is all pieced, waiting for a backing and waiting to be quilted? well, maybe another 10 or 12!! I do save my scraps, so I would sure like some hints on PIECED BACKINGS! Thanks!

    —JanG on July 11, 2018
  • a lot. and I hope to make a lot more!

    —Myrna Layton on July 11, 2018
  • Love the designs and suggestions for a pieced backing.

    —Diana DeWitt on July 12, 2018
  • Have made about 6 big quilts and looking forward to making many more….love the suggestions for piecing the backing!

    —Sally Bean on July 12, 2018
  • Well, the key word in your question must be ‘completed’… I have two quilts on the way. One is a queen size bed, the second is a double size bed. They are long time projects I guess…

    —Micheline M. on July 12, 2018
  • I have not but with this guidance I might try.

    —Regina Harris on July 13, 2018
  • I have completed 4 large quilts of my own, restored 2 more and remade another for a relative. I usually hand quilt or tie them as they are too hard to manage on my machine. I have pieced backings for a few of the larger and smaller quilts and I love the look!!

  • I have 900 basting pins and I have used them all and not finishing basting the quilt 3 times, so for me that’s what qualifies as big. I love scrappy quilts and scrappy backs. I just can’t bring myself to buy 5+ yards of the same fabric for a big quilt’s back.

    —Carole Holmberg on July 13, 2018
  • I have completed 6 big quilts and have 4 more big tops waiting to be quilted.

    —Diane Coble on July 13, 2018

  • I have only completed three large quilts, but have a couple more on my “to do” list

    —Carol B on July 13, 2018
  • I have completed about 6 big ones, and another 3 that are ready for quilting and then probably another 2 or 3 flimsies. Most of the ones I complete are ones for other people…my ones seem to sit and wait a lot longer! Piecing the backing might be just the trick to get them on their way!

    Wendy Bertello on July 13, 2018
  • Only smaller quilts so far!!!!!

    —Louise on July 13, 2018
  • Love the colors, fall is in the air in the middle of the summer heat

    —Lorie McAnelly on July 13, 2018

    —Linda Cejnar on July 13, 2018
  • I have made about 15 large bed size quilts. Love the Stashtastic quilt projects.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on July 13, 2018

    —Sylvia on July 13, 2018

    mandy whalen on July 13, 2018
  • I have made 3 king size and 2 queen size so far. I sent one out to be quilted but the others were done on my domestic machine. The king I am working on now I am quilting in sections and when I get it put together it will be finished! Lots of hand sewing to hide the seams, but it is worth it. I enjoy making large quilts, and see more in my future.

    —Carol on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve completed five large size quilts and have four more tops completed but not quilted yet.

    —Maryanne Wilson on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve made 20-30 large sized quilts (queen and larger) and lots of large lap quilts (up to a twin in size). And have several large quilts in progress at this point.

    Thanks for the giveaway of book and fabric!

    Moira on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve made four queen quilts. I just finished one for my 20 year old daughter and it will probably be my last big one. With my regular sewing machine it was just too much maneuvering it. Next time I’ll send it out for someone else to quilt.

    —Michelle Eacret on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve probably completed about 15 large quilts. There are three that need to be quilted.

  • I’ve made about 5 full size bed or larger quilts.

    —Barbara on July 13, 2018
  • Ha! Zero. But I am getting ready to and I am using fat quarters for backing. Coincidence?

    —Sandra Boff on July 13, 2018
  • I have made one queen size, though I think it should have been bigger. I tend to make 60-80 by 70-90 quilts. Generous throws

    —Patty Flynn on July 13, 2018

    —Cindy petersen on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve done at least 100 big quilts and over 1000 lap and wall. Biggest quilt I quilted (as a longarmer) was a church banner 25 feet long by 9 feet wide ( yes – FEET!). They were so accurate in their sewing there was less than 1/4 variance the whole length.

    —Carina Z on July 13, 2018
  • It would tax my brain to figure that out! I’ve been quilting for 40+ years and most of the quilts have been large size. I’m always looking for more fabric and more ways to use it up!

    —Carol Koehn on July 13, 2018
  • My biggest quilt so far is a full bed size. I’m working on a queen size currently.

    —Sue on July 13, 2018
  • I have completed a couple of big quilts so far. My biggest quilt, a HST civil-war repro for our King-sized bed, is still in a holding pattern…hundreds and hundreds of hst’s, waiting until the day our rescue pup decides to stop chewing on quilts. Then I’ll put it together, and not a day sooner.

    —Nancy A on July 13, 2018
  • I have made 2 or 3 king size and a few queen size quilts … mostly do full and twin size and lap plus baby quilts, of course. Minis are probably my favorites. I love to make scrappy and fat quarter backs on all. Solid backs are boring … two for one if my thing. Great giveaway!

    —Rosemary Barron on July 13, 2018
  • I have only made 3 queen sized quilts.

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on July 13, 2018

    —sheryl harrison on July 13, 2018

    —Charlotte Wisner on July 13, 2018
  • I have completed one quilt that measured 100 x 100, quilted on a domestic machine and one that was for a double bed. If you are going to take the time to make a quilt, make it BIG. I am working on another quilt that again will finish at 100 x 100.
    I have been quilting for 4 years, started with the double quilt for my Granddaughter.

    —Terri D'Ambrosio on July 13, 2018

    —Linda Smith on July 13, 2018

Lots of twin size and throw size for family, charity and even 2 passage quilts to donate to local funeral homes for transporting deceased family members. Thank you for the opportunity to win a giveaway book and fabric and thanks for the wonderful quilt backing ideas. I am in the senior years of making quilts and trying really hard to use up my stash…the idea of using stash for backings truly helps!

    —B. A. Fellers on July 13, 2018
  • I’ve only made one big quilt and then several lap and crib quilts. Right now I’m into the small quilts. The fat quarter stash would be wonderful for those projects! Thanks!

    —Jfly on July 13, 2018

    —debby on July 13, 2018
  • I had to stop and count! At least 5 queen size and 1 king, plus several double bed size and many that are around 60″ x 80″ – that makes a nice gift size when I am not up to a larger one. I see a number of quilts in this book that I would love to make!

  • Good afternoon…
    I’ve made a couple of throw size quilts, several teen quilts (probably twin sized), most of my sewing is for toddlers, babies and preemies. Often a block for a "real" quilt will be my preemie quilt. Thank you for the information on scrap backings.

    —Nita on July 13, 2018
  • When I first started making quilts about 15 years ago, I made a quilt that was between the size of full to queen size. When I started back quilting about a year and a half ago,I made my husband a queen size quilt that is a little more than queen. Then I made my father in law a queen size quilt. Now my father in law wants a king size quilt that will fit on his bed. I’m in the process of making a couple of quilts that are between twin and full size and then, FINALLY, I will get to make myself a quilt and it will be queen size. I have made a couple of lap quilts for my brother and his wife. Thank you so much forth chance to win this contest. Especially since I can’t seem to get away from making big quilts, so I need lots of fabric. Thanks again. Kellie

I have pieced, appliqué, stuffed and all but three are hand quilted. I change my quilts every week and really enjoy them. My children and grandchildren as well as friends have received quilts. I can’t stop. They give you such joy. I couldn’t even tell you how many small ones I have made.

    —Virginia Bronner on July 14, 2018

    —Kathleen on July 14, 2018
  • I have not tracked all the big quilts that I have made since I was a teenager. I am guessing around 25 quilts over the years not including some of my UFO projects. Most of the quilts I have made were given to family members and charities through our church ministry quilt group and veterans. If I win, this would be me to enjoy. Leftover scraps will be made for charities for them to enjoy. So this would be a great for all to enjoy!

    —Pearl on July 14, 2018
  • Thanks for the opportunity to win such a lovely prize. I have made at least 5 big quilts and have pieced 3 of the backs with leftover fabric from the front. Being a bright bot my quilts tend to be ‘in your face’. I love how they look. I also like to use leftover lengths for the binding.

    —Sandra Paschkow on July 14, 2018

  • One king size quilt for our bed – hand quilted, two double for two grandsons – machine quilted and one in the pipeline for third grandson. Otherwise lap quilts, baby quilts and wall hangings have given me different challenges. Not enough hours in the day! Though if I used the time I spend each day browsing ideas, I’d actually achieve a lot more! 🤣

  • I have completed lots of big quilts,all quilted on my domestic Bernina. I have 7 grandchildren and each have a quilt for their bed. I also like to change the quilt on my bed with the season.

  • I haven’t completed a large quilt yet, but I’m already copying Doug’s idea of using 1 quilt to back another. I think this is a wonderful idea to have a quick change of scenery and make use of the quilts.

  • I have only made three large bed size quilts, my last being a 25 Block Sampler Quilt, which I recommend for all beginners looking for a way to learn a lot in a short period of time. I am just now starting to quilt bed sized quilts myself, so I love learning and challenging myself.

  • So far I’ve made four large lap size quilts and around ten smaller quilts. Thank you for the generous giveaway!

  • The biggest size I’ve made would probably be considered a large throw … I’m guessing that’s not a "large" quilt!

  • I have completed only 1 big quilt; but about 50 children’s size for our church charity for soldiers and children in our local hospital. I love working for flannel! Thanks for the opportunity to win Doug’s book.

  • Big quilts are predominantly what I make. Even my "cuddle" quilts are over sized. Nothing more cuddly than a flannel quilt. Would love to win this bundle of fabrics to make another.

    —Cindy on July 15, 2018
  • Big to me is twin size or larger, and I’ve probably made about a dozen. I love everything from mini to king!
