BIG GIVEAWAY—THREE WINNERS! Pat’s brought three companies together for a great giveaway: our friends at Moda Fabrics supplied six fun fabric panels (you’ll understand why when you read Pat’s post below). Our friends at Aurifil contributed three boxes of Pat’s new thread collection, called the Perfect Box of Neutrals. And we’re giving away three copies of the book!

Throw your hat in the ring to win this fun giveaway—learn how at the end of this post.


Pat-SloanWhen making a quilt, one of my greatest satisfactions is to do the whole process myself, and that includes quilting the layers.

When I started machine quilting on a pretty inexpensive and basic machine, my walking foot didn’t work very well. Actually, it was so bad I couldn’t move the fabric under the foot! So I came up with other ways to get the quilting done.

After I got a new machine (yay!) I was able to successfully free-motion quilt, and now I do both free-motion and walking-foot machine quilting.

I’ve taught people to quilt their own quilts for years, and you can learn too. My goal with Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Machine Quilt is to give you a basic set of tools to start with.

I begin with how to baste the layers together, then show you how to practice. Oh my yes, I DID say “that word!” Then I take you through using simple, basic quilting patterns to give your quilt that next layer of design.

Walking-foot and free-motion quilting

ThreadsBut there is another part—the thread! You need gorgeous thread. I tell you all about the different thread weights and when to use them. (My newest thread collection is my Perfect Box of Neutrals 40-weight thread for Aurifil, which is excellent for machine quilting.)

Free-motion quilting is a series of things you do, much like driving a car. At first it might feel a bit awkward, but with practice—back to that practice thing—the steps become second nature.

Now, I have a secret tip for you that will change your free-motion quilting life.

Quilt five fabric panels in a row. Find five cute fabric panels, one with motifs you can quilt around. First baste all five panels first so you have them at the ready; then quilt on them every day until you finish. Don’t stop practicing for weeks in between. By the end of your panel practice, you’ll see a massive improvement as your muscle memory connects the dots on how to do these new techniques.

    Gail G on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing. But still only do small quilts.

    —Collette Morton on October 12, 2016
  • I’m MOSTLY confident as can be; I love to do my own quilts. Practice is key. I think that using the fabric panels during those times that I’m not working on a full quilt might be a good way to keep the muscle memory fresh. Thanks for the inspiration!

    —Cyndi Ferguson on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely practicing and progressing. Plus I’m trying to teach my 13 year old some of the things I’ve learned. Hopefully all good habits!

    —Jennifer Kinney on October 12, 2016

    —Elizabeth A Monahan on October 12, 2016
  • WOW! This book looks awesome! and it takes the fear out of dropping those feed dogs!!

    —Pam G on October 12, 2016
  • I am a 3 – c quilter. I do very little quilting and just don’t relax enough.

    —BettyK on October 12, 2016
  • I am confident, but having to relearn my FMQ skills due to health reasons. The best thing is practice, practice, practice. That is what I taught my students before I got sick. Now I am following what I taught. Pat is a great speaker/teacher, so I know the book will be great.

    Debbie Clarke on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and making some progress. But still need more ideas on how to improve.

    —Betty 4 4 on October 12, 2016
  • I would be so excited to win this book … love Pat Sloan’s approach to teaching and I want to learn to machine quilt my own quilts. Thank you! ♥

    —Suzanne on October 12, 2016
  • I could be all three, but practicing and progressing would be overall the best description of my quilting abilities.

    —Angie Little on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely a "practicing and progressing" machine quilter. I could use some more instruction, would love to win the Teach Me To Machine Quilt book!

    —Marg on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing (sometimes) and progressing (slowly)

    —regina on October 12, 2016
  • I am in the "b" category of quilters. I do the walking foot type. Want to learn the free motion but am dragging my feet yet. One of these days I better jump in and learn some steps.

    —Robin on October 12, 2016
  • I have been waiting for the perfect time to learn ! I only quilt with my walking foot so far and want expand my horizons! I think this book will be my inspiration!

    —Lois on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely in the "Waiting for the right time (or book) to try!" but Pat’s book may be just what I need.

    —Regina Harris on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing … What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kim White on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing gaining confidence each time. I like that I can say ‘I quilted this one’.

    Cheryl Zehms on October 12, 2016
  • Always practicing – In Blankies for Grown-Ups we make hundreds of quilts a year for seriously ill adults but there’s always something new to learn. Since I can’t wave a magic wand over my "adequate but not brilliant" machine quilting, I’ll definitely check our Pat’s techniques!

    Susan GM

    —Susan Gray Mason on October 12, 2016
  • I’d like to learn more. This book will surely help.

    —Joan on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing….I do a lot of walking foot quilting, not much free motion.

    —Lisa on October 12, 2016
  • Have been practicing, but have just not gotten the hang of it yet.One day seems good the next time it looks like I am starting from scratch again. Would certainly appreciate any help that would just make it twig with me.

    —Janette Anderson on October 12, 2016
  • I am fine w/ stitch in the ditch and grid type machine quilting but free motion is still hard

    —Deirdre Bennett on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to win these prizes. I have been dying to learn how to machine quilt because it is so expensive to send a quilt out to have it done. I think the book would help me at least get started. I have been so scared to try.

    —Lynda Nunez on October 12, 2016
  • I’m definitely #3. I’ve done a few small projects, but just sent several that included small projects to the longarmer. What an opportunity and great give away.

    —Gail on October 12, 2016
  • I am one of those with many quilt tops waiting to be finished and displayed. I am looking into purchasing a new sewing machine that will make it easier to free motion quilt myself. So this book is coming at the perfect time. Thanks so much!

    —Karen Parot on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing but I am always looking for a a good book like Pat’s.

    —Elizabeth Dicrescenzo on October 12, 2016
  • When it comes to machine quilting, I’m definitely waiting for the right time (or book) to try 🙂 Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —Debra on October 12, 2016
  • I fall squately between numbers 1 and 2 – confident with some methods but practicing and progressing with others. It is so great to see new books offering tips and new, creative ideas to expand my machine quilting repertoire.

    —Colleen on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a "b"

    —AS on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing… love the idea of practicing on the panels!

    —Betty Acree on October 12, 2016
  • Some nonquilting friends and I have pieced a quilt for a friend who is wheelchair bound as result of a stroke. We’ve done the piecing and I would like to not send it out for quilting. I have begun practicing some free motion quilting, but needless to say it is sadly lacking. Some "how to"instruction would certainly be appreciated.

    —Anita Moody on October 12, 2016
  • I guess that "Practicing and Progressing" is the closest description to my skills with machine quilting. When I did my first machine quilted quilt, I just jumped right in with an all-over meander. Boy, were those stitches uneven! I tried a few more, but still haven’t gotten the knack of even stitches. So I tried some walking foot quilting, and am happier with the results. But I still want to get nice even meander and stippling stitches. I like Pat’s suggestion to get some practice panels ready and work on them every day! off to the sewing room…..

    Barbara Johnson on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing. My first project looked like a chicken danced on it and I grew to love the seam ripper. Anything since has been an improvement!

    —Stephane Lau on October 12, 2016
  • I’m waiting for the right time or book to try. I have 2 quilts to do

    —Debby Thompson on October 12, 2016
  • I am truly waiting for the right moment to try! I have made attempts in the past and have considered myself hopeless! I can do "straight" quilting, but would love to learn to do free motion! Help!

    —Ginger Marshall on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing with my machine quilting. I try to incorporate something new on each quilt.

    —Brenda Powers on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to take this class!!

    —Michele Cariveau on October 12, 2016
  • I’m completely confident with stitch-in-the-ditch, but anything other than requires skills, courage and vision I don’t possess, so it would be lovely to win the prize and be inspired to practice, practice, practice! 🙂

    —Carol Weber on October 12, 2016
  • I am very much a novice at machine quilting but I am willing to learn. I need lots of help.

    —Patricia Roberts on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right book, teacher, class. I have tried several times and the outcomes were rather sad. Hopefully Pat Sloan’s book will do the trick!

    —Judy M on October 12, 2016
  • I need to learn how to machine quilt so that I can quilt all of the tops that I have pieced over the past few years. I have been waiting for the right book to come along so that I could learn how to machine quilt. Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Machine Quilt looks like the perfect book.

    —Carolyn R. on October 12, 2016
  • 2: Practicing and progressing!

    —S. Gorder on October 12, 2016
  • I’m as confident as can be most of the time. Practice is the only way to learn it, much like playing an instrument, or golfing, or any other skill.

    —Marie on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely 3! I’m waiting for someone to explain it to me in a way that makes me feel confident enough to try it.

    —Kristine R. on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to try quilting and am not confident I could do it. I can not stand to quilt with a long arm as I have bad knees and would love to learn and sit and quilt.Maybe your book is just what I need to practice and be confident.

    —Myra Sattler on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting for the right BOOK to try, maybe this is my chance!

    —Cindy Luedeman on October 12, 2016
  • I am 73 and am so happy that regular machine quilting has become so popular. I have done it somewhat thru the years….but with no information as to enhance how it could be done, it wasn’t very satisfactory. I am enjoying the new information and guidance! The finished projects can now be spectacular.

    Barb Bildner on October 12, 2016
  • I’m in the B category…Practicing and progressing….. trying to get that "sweet spot" consistent , and I’m not referring to finding the secret drawer in my quilting room that has the chocolate 🙂 PS. thank you thank you!!! for the closed captioning on the videos!!!!

    —Nancysue on October 12, 2016
  • #2 definitely. Practicing and progressing. I quilt on my little Pfaff 7570.

    —dorothea evans on October 12, 2016
  • I have been quilting for years, but I have always sent my quilts out to be quilted by someone else. I am finally ready to try quilting my own quilts.

    —Joy Hasson on October 12, 2016
  • I’m waiting for the right time to try! I have used my walking foot with some success but am terrified of free motion. Help!

    —Ann Denny on October 12, 2016
  • I’m terrible at machine quilting. My backing always bunches up. I have so many quilt tops finished but are not complete because of this.

    —April Lopez on October 12, 2016
  • I am am a beginner to quilting, having just finished my first single bed size quilt for my grandson. I love the patterns and endless colour combinations, but find it hard to select the right patterns of fabric to the best block patterns.
    So i’m plucking up the courage to to use a few fat quarters, to practise one block design, as a table runner for the spring to build confidence to just have a go. Here’s hoping!!
    So i am probably number 2 B level.

    —Angela Richards on October 12, 2016
  • I am a beginning quilter, having gone to semi-retirement with more time. I have been able to stitch in the ditch, but beyond that I am lost! I even bought some scroll printed paper but still can’t figure it out. I would love to win the book and hopefully learn to quilt like what I see on all the websites!

    —Toddie Hauck on October 12, 2016
  • I am a solid #2!!! Thank you!!

    —Lee on October 12, 2016
  • I’m more like 2.5 Just starting and need guidance.

    —Pam on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing! I was so worried about perfection that I had many unfinished quilt tops. I finally decided to just go ahead and free motion quilt them. And guess what–practice does make (almost) perfect! Now my motto is "It doesn’t have to be perfect to be excellent."

    —Bette on October 12, 2016
  • My answer is 3: Waiting for the right book to try! I need that extra push to get started. Thank you!

    —Stephanie S. on October 12, 2016
  • I’m definitely practicing and progressing, and looking for new designs to try with free motion. My go to are stippling and random hearts and stars, so I need to expand.

    —bert on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing! And I learned some new tips from Pat!
    Thanks.

    —Susan Stanton on October 12, 2016
  • It’s definately waiting for the "right book to try". I have several books, but still have some struggles. I keep hearing it is possible to do this beautiful quilting on my machine – but have yet to accomplish that! Can’t wait to try, try, again!

    —Patty on October 12, 2016
  • b). walking foot works, but free motion is impossible on any thing larger than a small square.

    —Pat on October 12, 2016
  • C describes me to a tww….probably because I also find it a bit intimidating. I like Pat’s comparison to learning to drive. Now that makes sense and I did learn to do that!

    —Erin Owens on October 12, 2016

    My mom always quilted and I regret not learning from her.

    —Rebecca LaGrange on October 12, 2016
  • I would say I am practicing and progressing. I would love to be confident but I have a ways to go!

    —Pam K on October 12, 2016
  • I used to be completely confident and competent in my machine quilting, but after a couple of years of inactivity I’ve slipped to the practicing and progressing stage. Those "memories" are quickly returning!

    —Sandy on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely "c"! Would love to be a winner! Thanks for this great giveaway!

    —Jetta on October 12, 2016
  • I have used a pamphlet book by Pat Sloan to guide me throught learning to machine quilt. I made my first quilt and loved it. It took three years and was a " work Of Art and Love" Boy’s transportation quilt for our grandson. I want to know more, as I was a bit timid and used only outline quilting and stitch in the ditch, which served me well. But ready to stretch and grow.
    Pat Sloan is my hero!
    Thanks for all the beautiful, interesting and helpful books and publications!
    I hope I win the contest so I will be challenged to try free motion and more!

    —Sherry E Keith on October 12, 2016
  • This looks like the book that I’ve been waiting for. Have always been hesitant to try other than stitch in the ditch.

    —Chris Rose on October 12, 2016
  • I have been dabbling in machine quilting for some time, without much success….now I find your materials to be just the thing to help me along.

    —Char on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right time and or book to try this. I would love to learn how to do this. Fingers crossed. Thank you so much!!

    —Betty Dutill on October 12, 2016
  • I’m somewhere between 2 and 3. I waited for a long time but finally have started a couple of practice pieces. I’m not making much progress though. I need a LOT more practice and could definitely use this book!

    —Pam on October 12, 2016
  • #2 — and just starting at #2. Have been doing a lot of reading about "how to" and have begun doing some practicing at the machine. I can see that time at the machine using good directions will be the key to any progress that I make. This "bundle" would be the perfect incentive to work even harder!

    —Katherine Cronn on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting for the right time (or book) to try! There’s so much information out there but overwhelming too! I’d love to have a step-by-step how-to book to help learn all the tricks.

  • I am practicing and progressing.

    —Janrtrg on October 12, 2016

    —Donna D on October 12, 2016
  • B) Practicing and progressing, confident about my random quilting, need more help choosing designs that enhance the quilt. Love the giveaway and look forward to the book.

    —Tamara on October 12, 2016
  • Machine quilting — I can do small projects using straight line quilting but free motion quilting, not so much! I probably have 20-25 completed tops waiting till some day to be quilted. Since I quilt with my checkbook (Lol!), they’ll be waiting for quite some time. But I enjoy the journey (piecing the tops) more than the destination. Would love to win one of the giveaways, tho!

    —Jan B on October 12, 2016
  • I am beginning my first project with little or no confidence, and when I saw that this book and video is available, I was delighted. I am ready to go, have my walking foot, my panel to work with, and now all I need is to purchase Pat Sloan’s book. I am a visual learner, so the videos along with the book will make it so much easier for me, plus I am really interested in learning about the proper thread to use. I am may be old (68), but I am so excited to learn the proper way to start and finsh a quilted project….hopefully the expression, "learning something new is good for the brain", comes true.

    Thank you.

  • Waiting for the right time (or book!) to try. So far, I’ve only made a few quilts, and they’ve all been straight lines – I’d love to branch out (so to speak)!

    —Karen on October 12, 2016
  • Machine quilting is the hardest part of the quilting process for me. I’m never sure what to do. I need help from the expert!

    —Dee carter on October 12, 2016
  • I am in between b) Practicing and progressing, and c) Waiting for the right time (or book) to try! I have to keep reading and researching so that I can at least nail some of these quilts. Thank you so much for this giveaway.

    —Janie on October 12, 2016
  • I am B- Practicing and progressing. My mother was an expert and won many ribbons at the local county fair. She passed away in May 2015 and we displayed her many ribbons and some of her quilts at the funeral home. I inherited all of her fabric and unfinished projects. I hope to be as good as she was someday. Thanks for all the help you provide.

    —Cathy Hoover on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing for sure! I really hope to be at least "pretty good" some day soon!

    —Kathy E on October 12, 2016
  • I would say I am a c….though I have tried machine quilting, it is not very good, so I need a good book, as well as time to practise.

    —Marianne Gallant on October 12, 2016
  • I would fall into C, waiting on the right time, or really the right book and class to learn. I have been sewing for years and practicing my heirloom techniques. I just re4cently decided I would love to learn to make the beautiful quilts that I so admire. I have saw Pat Sloan’s and love them. I also love Moda Fabric and was just looking the The Brenda Riddle Fleurs for Moda and tryimg to decide which ones to buy. I just recently tried Aurifill thread and love it. This is a wonderful giveaway that I would love to have. Thanks to all for making it possible.

  • Practicing and progressing – just need more practice so I can be confidant at what I am doing.

    —Marie V. Owens on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting to find the right book and start this fantastic hobby. I do a whole lot of sewing, but am always shy about starting a new technique or different project from garment sewing.

    —Marilyn Garcia on October 12, 2016
  • c – waiting for the right time. Mostly due to the fact that I have too much on my plate.

    —Denise on October 12, 2016
  • I am all of the above statements. I’ve just recently retired and I’m trying my hand at machine quilting. Of course I would love to go right out and buy a quiliting machine but having the room and "smarts" to be able to conquer that doesn’t seem right for me right now. I think if I can master machine quiliting on my own machine I will be more confident in myself and my work. I have I think 12 quilt fronts done at this time and just not getting to the backs yet. Maybe now with more time? I would love to have your book or any of the prizes in the giveaway. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  • I have tried a little on small projects but just need to spend more time at machine quilting with my domestic. I will be retiring now so I plan to spend more time at my machine.

    —Carol Barlau on October 12, 2016
  • I am a re-beginning quilter. I found jelly rolls and I have been in love but also love machine quilting which I did years ago but don’t remember how I did it and would love to get going again. So I practice and guess but have a first grandchild coming and can’t wait to get at it.

    —Susan Nordstrom on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely in the "Waiting for the right time (or book) to try" category! Pat sure does make it look easy 🙂 And just think of all those quilts that I could finally finish if I knew how to quilt them. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Katie Harland on October 12, 2016
  • I’m in the practicing phase, just not often enough to make much progress.

    —jan davis on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing!!

    —Cathy on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to win this giveaway. I have always wanted to quilt my own quilts but have been too intimidated!!!

    —Mary Van Kleeck on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right book and I’m sure I have found it now!!

    —Audrey on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing but perhaps not progressing as quickly as I’d like because I haven’t yet committed myself to the practice time. I love Pat’s idea about having panels to practice on. Such a practical suggestion!

    —PJ Abbott on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a big old c; I haven’t figured out how to make my hands and head work together the results are lees than wonderful.

    —Barb Jenson on October 12, 2016
  • Yes, I am waiting for the right time to practice free motion quilting. I even have pieces sandwiched to practice on, and still have not done it. I just know that you can give me the confidence, Pat!

    Judith Jones on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. Love making quilts but when it comes to the quilting, my mind goes blank as far as a pattern. Love Pat’s patterns and ideas. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —connie b on October 12, 2016
  • I think I would fall in between #2 and #3. I practice, but still need lots of help. Help to teach my brain how to do it well. I mostly use my walking foot, but need to learn how to use the free motion. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Jocelyn on October 12, 2016
  • I AM LETTER C SO MAYBE YOUR BOOK IS THE RIGHT TIME, PLACE, AND MOTIVATION FOR ME. I JUST LOVE LOOKING AT FABRIC BUT I DON’T ALWAYS KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OUT OF IT.

    —JENNIE on October 12, 2016
  • I love machine quilting. I’ve done it quite a bit but am still working on improving my skills. I’d love to #spotlightstores a Book by Pat, since I have most of her books! I’m going to dig out some panels and start practicing right away!

    —Jean Blythe on October 12, 2016
  • I am "practicing and progressing" . I just got a Juki TL2200QVP and now have room to do more and larger designs. Also want to try ruler work. So much I want to learn and so little time. Even retired, life seems to interfere.

    Thank you.

    —Sherry Neff on October 12, 2016
  • Wow! I am somewhere between waiting for the right time and practicing and progressing. Really. I have tried some stippling on smaller projects but would love to do more. What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks!!!!!!

    —Janey Cook on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely in the number 3 camp — waiting for the right time (and amount of confidence) to give free motion machine quilting a try! Thanks to you, Pat, and Aurifil for a great giveaway opportunity!

    —Karen Seitz on October 12, 2016
  • I am a definite 3C. Quilting is scary looking. This book looks like it might be the push I need to get started.

    —Sandy M on October 12, 2016
  • A definite "C" for me – only have attempted to cross-hatch so far. Thanks for the chance!

    —Cathy on October 12, 2016
  • 1 ) confident – do it all the time! But I always love to learn new things.

    —Cindy Huffman on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely always practicing and progressing!

    —Carole L on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing 🙂

    —Marilyn in Alberta on October 12, 2016
  • I’ll admit it, I’m a "B", slowly but surely learning. This book would be awesome! I love working with panels because as a "beginner" I find it easier to practice my skills on them while still be able to put out a nice quilt quickly. Thanks for the chance!

    —Cindy M on October 12, 2016
  • I am "C. Waiting for the right time to try." I took one class in use of a long arm machine a year ago. It was kind of a disaster. Next was a class in "Free Motion Quilting" on your home machine. The third class in my life time. This time wasn’t too bad. I think I might can do it, just need practice, which I haven’t had time to do.

    Martha Fewell on October 12, 2016
  • Im #2, practicing and progressing. Quilting is an art form. Im confident in simple designs but there is always room for improvement.

    —Sarah Austin on October 12, 2016
  • I fall into the waiting to find the right book category, and this looks like it might be it, or the right time and I think that is now. I definitely need to do something with the tops that I have and get some satisfaction in a job well done.

    —Linda Ford on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing…SLOWLY. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and the tip!

    —Debbie Holley on October 12, 2016
  • I took some free motion classes a few years ago, but I haven’t done much since. I love Pat’s work and would love to have the book

    —Sue Raymond on October 12, 2016
  • I find that I am not quilting as much as I would like to be because I am not getting my pieces actually quilted. I feel like I could quilt at least small items – if I had the confidence to try it and the knowledge to know where to begin

    —Margot on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing but know the book would be a big help. Thanks for the chance.

    —Rina on October 12, 2016
  • Pat Sloan is someone I have been privileged to know from her early days. She is genuinely bubbly friendly and lives to share her quilting knowledge.

    The new book will be a keeper and having Aurigil thrown in as a bumper prise is a super lovely opportunity.

    If I can’t be where Pat is teaching live this is the next best thing. Hope I am one of the lucky three.

  • I am C, waiting for the right time. Could that time be this year?

    —Judy Maggio on October 12, 2016
  • I would say I am practicing and progressing. I do want to learn more about machine quilting, but time always seems to be elusive! I think practicing on panels is a great tip!

    —Darlene B on October 12, 2016
  • It’s hilarious to read in Pat’s comments that her first attempt, with a walking foot, was so difficult. I’ve always wondered if others had the problem that I had, because the fabric just wouldn’t go under there! It didn’t move! It didn’t do what the videos showed….and that was discouraging. I’m glad to say that now I am "practicing and progressing" with free motion quilting!

    Snoodles on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting for the right time (or book) to try!

    —Susan N. on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely practicing and progressing, for me!! I do have a long, long way to go and would love to have Pat Sloan help me along. I have had her teach me to applique and completed her Farmer’s Market quilt. She is a great instructor and I have learned so many things but still need lots of help. Thank you, Martingale! You, too, have helped me tremendously and I really appreciate it.

    —Patsy on October 12, 2016
  • My retirement gift to myself last year was a new sewing machine so that I could try machine quilting. I guess I’m still waiting for the right time to try it and this sounds like the perfect trio to help me get started!

    Carolyn on October 12, 2016
  • I am making some progress but I know with the book I can be more confident. Free motion scares me to death

    —Maureen Dixon on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and feeling pretty good about the results.

    —Mary C on October 12, 2016
  • When it come to machine quilting I’m somewhere between b)Practicing and progressing and c) Waiting for the right time (or book) to try! I am always afraid that I am going to "mess up" a top that I’ve worked so hard to finish.

    —Deborah Whaley on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to get Pat’s new book on machine Quilting…plus the other prizes. Although I have been Quilting for many years, machine Quilting has been my major downfall.

    —Sharron Meyer on October 12, 2016
  • I am a definite B-practicing and progressing. It would be great to learn some new tips and tricks, and have wonderful material and thread to practice with.

    —Louise Warren on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to learn to machine quilt but am scared to try. Maybe a book like this would help. Would love to be a winner.

    —Jan Horn on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing using a walking foot. I would like to learn how to free motion. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great prize package! 🙂

  • #3! Just ordered a Jazz from Baby Lock so winning Pat’s new book, & kit, will be perfect!

    —Amy Cofer on October 12, 2016
  • I would have to say practicing and progressing. I find that as with most things, the more I do the more I learn and the better I get. Its just a matter of time before I just can’t get any better (Something to strive for).

    —Joanne O'Neal on October 12, 2016
  • I am "practicing and progressing" — I’ve done two quilts with free motion quilting, but still am not perfect by any stretch and not 100% confident yet. Enough to keep trying, though! This would be a great prize to win, and I love Pat’s tip to practice by quilting fabric panels. Great idea!

    —Heather V on October 12, 2016
  • I have not tried it yet, so I guess I’m…
    c) Waiting for the right time (or book) to try!

    —Mary on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing, but not very confident! Also I’m probably too critical of my finished work!

    Laurie Hackett on October 12, 2016
  • I have had a dozen or more quilt tops for years and final decided it was silly to let them languish unfinished. I am on my second quilt and am wondering why I waited so long. So I am practicing and progressing.

    —Brenda on October 12, 2016
  • I’m so busy making tops for Quilts of Valor, I don’t know if I have time to learn to quilt them!!

    Barbara Winkler on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing but not sure I’m progressing. Been a quilter for 35+ years and feel I’ve hit a plateau. Need to do better machine quilting if I’m going to keep up with the amazing young people who are making their presence in the world of quilting.

    —Pam on October 12, 2016
  • I do walking foot quilting, and would love to learn some new techniques. Mine is mostly straight line type.

    —Paula Marshall on October 12, 2016
  • I am #3. Waiting for the right time and book to try. Hope this is the right book to learn.

    —Patsy Philson on October 12, 2016
  • This sounds like exactly what I have been looking for in order to learn home machine quilting. It would give me the confidence to tackle a new and strongly desired skill. Practice is what I need, but with instruction and guidance from a talented teacher. Someone who will make it fun and not some dreaded chore. Quilting is my new challenge after having recently retired from the corporate world. I’m looking forward to this wonderful learning experience and would love to win this generous package of goodies.

    —Susan on October 12, 2016
  • #2 – Practicing and progressing

    —Mary Howard on October 12, 2016
  • I so much would love to learn more about quilting. I’m learning all I can from video’s on you tube. Disabled and on fixed income so I can’t afford the better things to learn. But I am willing and love what I know so far but always looking for easier and better ways Thank You

    —Norma Loveless on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing.

    —Vickie Morgan on October 12, 2016
  • I do machine quilting now but would absolutely love to learn to improve my quilting. The Moda, the Aurifil thread and your book are perfect matches! I found the video on your post very helpful. I would love to win this group of prizes! Thanks for the chance.

    —Jan Marshall on October 12, 2016
  • I am a practicing free motion quilter. I love your books and plan to get this one! Thanks

    —Carol white on October 12, 2016
  • I think I’m a blend of 2 & 3. I have been doing some basic machine-quilting of my wall hangings (I leave the big projects to my local long-arm quilter friends) but get very stressed out while do it… and it shows in some of my feeble attempts at free-motion quilting! Sigh. So I could use Pat Sloan’s help! Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win!! Thanks so much.

    Susan Mulvihill on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and making small progressive steps. Hoping to get better.

    —Pat D on October 12, 2016

    —Dawn Hollingsworth on October 12, 2016
  • I’d say b) with the qualification that the progress is slow in coming!

    —Jean McD on October 12, 2016

    —Debra Reber on October 12, 2016
  • I’m still practicing! Lucky enough to purchase a sit down Long Arm, but practice, practice, practice. Sigh.

    —Nancy G on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve done machine quilting in the past, but have never been happy with the results. Hoping this book will help me improve my skills. Thank you

    —Jacqui Sproul on October 12, 2016

  • I am practicing and progressing. Would enjoy learning more from Pat’s book.

    —Cassy L. on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely waiting for the right book/time. Very basic straight line quilting is all I’ve attempted so far. I recently got a nicer machine and am very excited to learn new things!

    —Kathryn B. on October 12, 2016
  • I would be #2. I just haven’t found the confidence yet to put any free motion into much of my quilting. I would love to have a book that would help me find the sweet spot!

    —Carolyn N on October 12, 2016

    —Jackie on October 12, 2016

    —Elizabeth McDonald on October 12, 2016
  • I have been making quilts for several years but have not mastered machine quilting so my answer is definitely C waiting for the right time (or book) to try. Thanks to Pat for being such a wonderful resource and inspiration.

    —Bev D on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right time to learn to quilt using my sewing machine! I would love to be able to finish my quilts and table runners, but do not know where to start !

    —Lana Stewart on October 12, 2016
  • Fantastic prize package! Thank you, Martingale, for the chance to win. :o)

    —Melanie Tehan on October 12, 2016

    —Pat on October 12, 2016
  • I have done a very limited amount of machine quilting, but really need some guidance. There is so much I just don’t know! I am purchasing Pat’s book, hopefully she can teach me what I need to know. And I would be thrilled to win anything, of course!!!!!

  • Waiting for the right time to try, maybe this is just what I need.

    —cheesecat on October 12, 2016
  • I’m #3. I get so afraid of trying to quilt on my machine. Maybe this book will help.

    —CECILE EMOND on October 12, 2016
  • I am a No. 2 – practicing and progressing. I think to machine quilt on my DM is so fun – I just love it! And I think I am getting better.

    —Martha Morgan on October 12, 2016
  • Thanks for the video. It helps a lot to see what I need to do to match my hands with my foot speeds! I am not as confident as I wish to be, but do practice every moment I can get away from household duties. The panels are a great idea to use for more practice because they provide negative space as well as lines to echo. Plus, who doesn’t love Aurifil thread! Grateful for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

    —Delores Angus on October 12, 2016
  • I pick #3. I don’t know why I’m so afraid of trying to quilt on my machine. Maybe this book will help.

    —CECILE EMOND on October 12, 2016

    —Susan K. on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and my stitches are so herky jerky they would not do a quilt justice yet so I am still practicing and progressing. Someday I will get there.

    Tanya Phinney on October 12, 2016
  • I love the tip about getting panels and quilting around the motifs. What great practice that would be. I have a small frame and mid-arm and have been doing some free motion quilting. I would say my level is B, practicing and progressing. Thanks for the give-away and the tips.

    —Kathryn Romans on October 12, 2016
  • When it comes to machine quilting I’m 3 c) waiting for the right time (or book). I would love to machine quilt my own quilts, but it is intimidating to me to figure out what to quilt, let alone how to quilt it. So any help would be great!!

    —Lori Neilson on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing! I love to stipple but I have been pushing myself to try different things. That’s how I will grow as a quilter!

    —Chris W on October 12, 2016
  • I am absolutely waiting for the right time or book to try. It’s almost here, I can tell. Hope it is this book.

    —Suzanne on October 12, 2016
  • #3 for sure, I’ve got several quilt tops done and I’m procrastinating on the quilting process. I keep telling myself to just do but I’m just not getting it done. Maybe the book and other goodies would motive me to "get her done"😬

    —Rita S on October 12, 2016
  • I’m still practicing and getting better.

    —Kathie L on October 12, 2016
  • I keep trying to machine quilt, but it always looks a little out of sorts. This would be a help

    —Terri Douglass on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing, but not progressing LOL ! I would love to win all these goodies. I think it would really help me to progress 🙂

    —Robin Speicher on October 12, 2016
  • I am #3 waiting for the right time or book!! Actually I have quilted some small baby quilts (stitch in the ditch). Have a lot of tops that need to be quilted!!

    —Rose on October 12, 2016
  • I’m waiting for the right book and this could be it!

    —Jill Ellis on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practising and progressing although I need to take Pat’s advice to not stop for a time in between practice days. I love her idea of using fabric panels to practice on.

    —Liz F. on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing, but slowly. Because I cannot practice every day, it goes very slowly. But I do love it and wish I could quilt every day!

    —Kathy G. on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right book. Looks like Pat’s book would be the one !
    I am so timid about machine quilting – only do it in the ditch. Thanks for an opportunity to win the wonderful package!

    —Nancy C on October 12, 2016
  • Oooh… I’m waiting for the right time, too, since I’ve always been a handquilter, and now am curious to expand to machine-quilting with my awesome new machine!!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on October 12, 2016
  • Love Pat’s idea to practice on panels. I am practicing, though not enough and very slowly progressing. Pat’s book would be a great help.

    —Diane H on October 12, 2016
  • Oh still waiting for the right time to try! I read about it a lot, but haven’t really gotten started – I’m intimidated by the layering part – pinning takes a long time so I’m going to try spray basting.

    —Katie B on October 12, 2016
  • I am C..waiting for the Book so,Im really happy to enter this !! Thanks for the chance to win this lovely giveaway!

    —carol Denning on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing but I don’t know if there’s really progress;-)

    —Hildy on October 12, 2016
  • Love the idea of practicing on panels. Have only done stitch in the ditch so far, but am anxious to learn more. Aurifil thread is the only one I use for piecing. Would love to win the package.

    —Vicki Wishart on October 12, 2016
  • No. 3 comes closes to quilting of quilts progress. Mostly I quilt by check! If they are very small, or small art quilts then I try. Not always as successful as would like, so Pat’s new book would really help me. And I have to remember to practice first as that does help. Thanks for the opportunity. Love Aurifil Thread, and the Moda panels look very fun!

    —Marilynn on October 12, 2016
  • Free motion terrifies me, and my walking foot work isn’t great. Consequently, projects pile up. This fall I’m determined to conquer my fear and send these gifts lovingly on their way.

    —Bobbie Brinson on October 12, 2016
  • I am B!! I’m always looking for ways to improve and this book sounds like it will help.

    —Rose Landon on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing but slowly progressing. But I’m only machine quilting things the size of a table runner or smaller, have not tried anything larger. Once I even quilted from the backside because my stitches on the back looked better than the stitches on the front, go figure.

    —Susan on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing but not progressing much. I don’t have much confidence in machine quilting but would love to learn.

    —Joanne Wilson on October 12, 2016
  • I would say I am practicing and progressing. I have so many quilt tops that I am afraid to free motion quilt so I made some scrap tops and have been exploring and practicing on those.

    —Kim Light on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing as I go.

    —Ann Muth on October 12, 2016
  • I finally have a machine from this century, and will be able to learn to machine quilt. I’ve been hand-quilting and sending tops of to a longarm machine for over 20 years. I know it’s time for me to learn to do it myself.

    —Barbara O. on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing, but I’m not sure I am progressing. There have been some great successes as well as some times when I just quit! I would love to learn some skills from Pat; thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Cher Merriman on October 12, 2016
  • I am fairly confident with the walking foot, but am getting bored, so would like to learn free motion and be more adventurous.

    —Marilee Nowak on October 12, 2016
  • Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to win her book, as I’m probably a not-so-confident beginner!! 😀

    —Lynette Gross on October 12, 2016
  • What a help this package would be! I have been sewing quilts for just a few years and have tried to quilt some of my own. They are definitely nothing fancy and would LOVE to learn how to expand my extremely limited skills.

  • c) Waiting for the right time (or book) to try! I did take a class on swirls and feathers but am intimidated. I guess I need to practice or continue doing stitch in the ditch.

    —Diana Salmon on October 12, 2016
  • When it comes to quilting~ I’ve tried a small project without knowing anything! So I pay someone to quilt for me! I am waiting for the right time to give it a try! I want to learn, I want the satisfaction (much like Pat) knowing that I performed that worked of art all by myself!

    —Anita Jackson on October 12, 2016
  • I keep trying. It’s just hard to keep at it, so I can progress and feel good about what I’m doing. Having a good book to guide me could help!

    —April Bogart on October 12, 2016
  • I’m always practicing and therefore, progressing. I can never tire of quilting designs and always look for inspiration.

    —Madeline on October 12, 2016
  • I’m waiting for the right book, although I have done some on table runners and wall hangings. Not brave enough to try it on a quilt, yet!

    —Patty on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing, but still need a lot of help. Pat’s book would provide the basic skills and inspiration for me. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —Bonnie on October 12, 2016
  • I’m in the ‘Practicing and progressing’ mode but often still feel most unsure of my free motion results. I look forward to Pat’s book to give me more insights and confidence!

    —Marie Eddins on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a C. The book sounds great. Machine quilting is scary and I need all the help I can get.

    —Sally Williams on October 12, 2016
  • I sew on my mother’s old singer machine. I do some straight line quilting, but I think I could do more. This is the next step, right?

    —Lisa M. on October 12, 2016
  • I would be practicing and progressing. I like using the walking foot and learning how to…looks like Pat Sloan has included this in her book.

    —Marilyn F on October 12, 2016
  • OMG just watch the promo and it make perfect sense, buying the three panels to practise. Can’t wait to see the book and WOW what a combo, my three favs Pat Sloan, MODA and Aurifil. On my way to the Quilt Store to get
    the panels.
    Thanks.

    —Marilyn on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right time and book to try. I like following along with Pat on her blog, she is a really good teacher.

    —Deborah DeBerry on October 12, 2016
  • I am waiting for the right book and Education -I World love to machine quilt AS an Pro LOL …
    Best of Luck from
    Susanne Lynggaard, Denmark…..

    Susanne Lynggaard on October 12, 2016
  • I fairly confident when it comes to using the walking foot but sure could use the help offered in Pat’s book when it comes to free motion quilting.

    —Karon on October 12, 2016
  • I only do little quilts etc. I just can’t seem to get
    the hang of free motion. I mostly Cross Hatch!

    —Pauline on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting for the right time! or until I have no other option is how it usually works. I have done a very small amount of quilting for mug rugs or purses, but that’s all so the book would be a huge help in making me get going.

    —Judys on October 12, 2016
  • C is about right, practice practice practice. the book would be a great help.

    —Darlene Poirier on October 12, 2016
  • I am not sure if you would say I was a 2 or a 3. I have only quilted small projects, never a "real" quilt. I am a long way from feeling confident enough to try a quilt. Maybe Pat’s new book would be just what I need to help build my confidence to take the next step.

    —Cindy on October 12, 2016
  • I had heard that I should practice on a (1) panel, but 5?! WOW, I totally can see where that would change things. I have not practiced enough! What insight.
    Thanks Pat. Any of the 3 prizes,would be wonderful, especially the thread!!

    VICKI SUE O'NEILL on October 12, 2016
  • Hi when it comes to quilting I’m Waiting for the right time (or book) to try!

    —Nancy on October 12, 2016
  • I have been scared spitless to try machine quilting. So much so that it has slowed my desire to undertake more quilt projects. Pat seems like the answer to my fears. She seems so down to earth, so ‘average everyday’ that she inspires confidence! I can’t wait to get her book and use her expertise!

    —Martha D on October 12, 2016
  • I am so interested in the "quilting" part, I have practiced a little, but I have to make myself go do it. I think Pat’s book would really be helpful. I know the brief video was great.

    —Nancy on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve done a little bit – need a lot more practice!

    —Kathy on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing, and enjoying it!

    —MoeWest on October 12, 2016
  • This may be the push to get me started, have been reluctant to try. Making practice panels, what a wonderful idea.

    —Linda Brennan on October 12, 2016
  • Machine quilting is something I want to do so very badly.. however, I will admit I am somewhat intimidated… so, I suppose I am waiting for the ‘right time’… and the courage…. 🙂

    —Angela Larson on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve had free motion quilting as a goal for some time but I need something to get me started on it. I am an absolute beginner in this area. I would love the book and supplies.

    —Rita W on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve done my own quilting for years, but never free-motion. I guess it’s time I learned!

  • Definitely C, I’m such a chicken! 🙂

    —Rebecca b on October 12, 2016
  • no. 2; practicing and progressing. it is a bit overwhelming.

    —martha cook on October 12, 2016
  • I do try some free motion quilting but i think Pat’s idea of using a panel is the best one I have heard yet! It only makes sense now that she explains it and particularly to keep going over and over without a long break in between. Thanks for the tip and the chance to win something besides.

    —Janet Brown on October 12, 2016
  • They say you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! I am trying to learn.

    Aleatha on October 12, 2016
  • I have practiced but not enough. i need to get over my fears and jump in with both feet. lately things are actually working out so maybe it is time to go out side the comfort zone. What have I got to lose? Fabric…Good excuse to shop for more

    —Sue on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to learn to machine quilt, especially the larger size quilts.

    —Joy Pumphrey on October 12, 2016
  • free motion is a scary for me, I like Pat’s hand holding in her books and videos.

    —Denise on October 12, 2016
  • Have just started using a walking foot. The first one didn’t work right. This one is pretty good on my refurbished 40 year old machine. Would love to learn to do the free style to up my in the ditch style which I am fairly proficient at doing on my homestyle quilts. Look forward to learning more!

    —Esther Searcy on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a hand quilter, but would love to learn machine quilting. Gets very expensive to send them out. This package would be the perfect opportunity to jump in and just do it.

    —Vickie Keith on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely waiting for the right book! As a quilter in a rural area, my options are very limited. I made an attempt years ago,…and we’ll leave it at that!

    —Sandi Spence on October 12, 2016
  • I too would appreciate ability to complete a quilt from beginnning (choose pattern and fabric) to end (machine quilting). As I slowly progress I’m still in need of practice and much advise.

    Kris Larison on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. I have quilted 2 small quilts with the walking foot but want to learn more and progress to more complex designs and free motion quilting.

    —Joan W on October 12, 2016
  • I am new to quilting and would love this book! Knowing I can quilt on my machine and not have to get a long arm is great!

    —Cheryl on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. The hardest part for me is deciding how to quilt something. They say that the quilt will speak to you; apparently I’m making deaf mute quilts.

    —Grace Stroud on October 12, 2016
  • When it comes to machine quilting, I’m somewhere between B and C. I’ve done straight line quilting on small projects like placemats & baby quilts but haven’t dared to work beyond that. Thank you for the winning opportunity.

    —Leti on October 12, 2016
  • I could really use this!

    —D. Norman on October 12, 2016
  • I would love to win this. I am a great piecer, but terrified of quilting, so I have many, many tops that need to be quilted! This would be a fabulous kick in the butt for me!

    —Stephanie Greer on October 12, 2016
  • I practice and my work gets a bit better each time, I hope! Lol My biggest hold back is deciding "what" pattern/s to use.

    —Edith Gorzo on October 12, 2016
  • I have always wanted to try free motion embroidery, but every time I finish a quilt top, I end up stitching in the ditch because it is the safe way to quilt without worry of making errors, and ruining all the hard work I’ve done in putting the quilt top together. But I really want to give it a try, and I’m sure the book would be very helpful!

    —Kim Newberg on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. Free motion is my biggest challenge. I would love to learn from Pat.

    Susie Miller on October 12, 2016
  • I love piecing but have difficulty deciding what to quilt where. I wish there was a book that could tell me what to do.

    —Janeen on October 12, 2016
  • I’m between B and C. I do straight line quilting and I’ve tried free hand, but I lack the confidence to consider myself good at that form. There is a huge stack of quilt tops sitting in my closet crying for quilting, but I don’t dare attempt it on my portable Elna machine.

    —Vanessa B on October 12, 2016
  • I have been quilting for many years and have tried machine quilting off and on. I am still unsure of myself. I hope to be able to try it again. I have tried Aurifil thread and really like it. It would be wonderful if I won this package in determination of learing to machine quilt. It would be a wonder 73 years young birthday gift to give to myself.

    —Judy Mittler on October 12, 2016
  • I am as comfortable as can be right now, but I am always learning and progressing as well. I love my Janome and have made many quilts, but one day I want to own a long arm. Love, love, love Pat Sloan’s approach to quilting. Hope I win her book!

    —Cheryl Buchanan on October 12, 2016
  • I’m in between A & B. I’m confident but still practicing. I have troubles with the tension on my new, not at all cheep machine, & I would love advice on thread! Thank you.

    —Sara on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing-I purchased a used frame and machine to longarm quilt last year. It’s not the greatest, but it does get the job done. One day I will get a nicer longarm……..until then I will muddle along with what I have. My son and I create our own patterns for free motion quilting. It’s been a family journey.

    —Jennifer Whitney on October 12, 2016

    —Melody Lutz on October 12, 2016

    —Suzie Parrott on October 12, 2016
  • I am somewhere between a 2 and 3. I can do quilting with my walking foot but when it comes to free motion, I need lots of practice.

    —Vicki H on October 12, 2016
  • I have always wanted to try machine quilting but have been afraid to give it a try. I have several quilts already pieced and ready to go but too afraid to ruin them. Pat’s tip on starting with panels may be just the boost i need to get started! Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Chris on October 12, 2016
  • I have tried FMQ as a beginner, but know I can do better, so I fall into the category of practicing and progressing. Having access to a book, especially from Pat Sloan would be a great value to help me improve my skills.

    —Elizabeth on October 12, 2016
  • A… confident, but, still trying to fine tune the whole quilting process, from piecing accuracy to sandwiching quilt layers to quilting effectively!

    —Dianna Eickhorn on October 12, 2016

    —Patrice Wiesner on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a number 1. I started out doing quilts for friends and family from things I made. I’m still not an artist but can do feathers and all. I cannot stress enough practice, practice, and then practice some more. If you don’t like to (dirty word) practice. Give your results to friends, I bet they won’t turn them down. Just remember what it was like learning to drive, and quilting won’t hurt anyone .

    —Stephanie Woodward on October 12, 2016

    —Sharon Borko on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. Sometimes coming up with the design is the hardest part – and then my machine doesn’t always cooperate on loops and circles on the underside.

    —Jeannie on October 12, 2016

    Carrie on October 12, 2016
  • B and C. I am practicing and trying but still need a teach me – lots of room to grow and I have never tried free motion quilting.

    —carol on October 12, 2016
  • This book would be great as I am a C. I am on a very limited income and have basically been doing Stitch in the ditch on my quilts and it is kinda boring! But as my income for quilting is very limited I can not afford the prices that longarmers in my area charge to have someone do it for me.

    —Lori Chvojka on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing but progress is slow. Using panels is a great suggestion. Definitely, I will try that. I get a bit frustrated quilting on practice pieces that serve no other purpose. Even if they’re not very good, I can finish and use a panel.

  • I need all the help that I can get!!

    —Pam on October 12, 2016
  • I started teaching myself to quilt through books and videos two years ago. Pat Sloan is one of my favorite quilting authors! I love her books "Teach me to Appliqué" and "Teach me to Sew Triangles". The layout of the information and the pictures are great for someone like me that has no prior sewing experience other than hemming pants or sewing buttons back on to a shirt. I have used the information in her books to add to my quilting "toolbox" so I am excitedly looking forward to owning her book "Teach me to Machine Quilt". Her website "www.PatSloan.com" is also my favorite quilters website!!! It’s loaded with great information and products. Pat Sloan really gives me the confidence to try to do more than stitching in the ditch and using the stitches on my machine to quilt my tops. I really want to be great at FMQ so I am trying to devote more time to practice. I really love the Aurifil threads and Moda fabrics especially their pre-cuts! Do I sound like a big fan?
    Yes, I am!!! Thank you Pat Sloan 🤗🤗🤗

    Mary, we love hearing your story about growing your quilting skills with Pat – we agree, she is the best!! Thanks for sharing your story. 🙂 –Jenny

    —Mary J on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. I am finally at the point where I realize it’s not going to be perfect and that’s OK! I have a lot to learn, but I am enjoying every step! I like the idea of quilting panels as Pat suggested! This is such an awesome giveaway!! Thanks for the chance!!

  • Hi There!
    I used to be very confident and was very pleased with the results I got using only my home machine. But, I stopped quilting for a while due to a prolonged illness and now have to re-learn all of my old techniques…so I’m in the practicing, practicing department!
    Thanks!

  • I’m in the middle group. Slowly progressing. Tired of just following around the seams or cross hatching. Would love to learn how to really start the quilting process.

    —Christel Powell on October 12, 2016
  • B. I’m practicing and seeing progress but no where near good enough to show my work.

    —Elizabeth Kuntz on October 12, 2016
  • I’m pretty confident with the walking foot but not too creative. I too want to do the whole process and always have (30 years worth) but my free motion leaves a lot to be desired. The ideas that you gave us a peak at look like it would help. I’d love to win your book.

    —Joan T on October 12, 2016
  • C. I am ready to try but still hesitate. Really need to take a chance 🙂

    —Ruth Ann Kyle on October 12, 2016
  • I guess I am waiting for the right time for my confidence to be good enough to try. I am always afraid I will make a mess and no one will like the end results. A book that shows me simple steps to start all the way through the finish would help greatly.

    —Donna Rothacher on October 12, 2016
  • I am fairly confident, but will never stop learning & improving my techniques!!

    —Jeannine on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and slow progression

    —Jane Timmins on October 12, 2016

    —Mary Bruemmer on October 12, 2016

    —Marge buck on October 12, 2016
  • I love your articles and have been following you – but I am still gun shy when it comes to quilting on my own machine. Maybe I need the right book to show me how!!! Would love to win a book to accompany me to my machine and get me started!!! Thanks!!

    —Beth W. on October 12, 2016
  • I think this is a skill I will always be working on to improve and learn more about. Any tips are welcome as I practice my quilting.

    —Jean on October 12, 2016
  • I love quilting, think it’s the best step of all the process, when true beauty comes out from the piece! Anyway I am always learning, practicing and progressing with it♡

    —Serena on October 12, 2016
  • I also like to do my quilts from start to finish. I am trying free motion but slow going so would love this book.

    —Trudi Burns on October 12, 2016

  • practicing and progressing. I am going to tackle a 102×102 quilt for my bed. I haven’t ever done my own quilting but have a few UFO that are ready but didn’t send off yet. I would like to start doing my own so I can have more creative motifs this would be a big help.

    —lavonne on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. Currently, I use my walking foot to quilt straight lines. However, I would love to free-motion quilt! I have quilt tops waiting. I may have a panel or two sitting around, also. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    Danette Stankovich on October 12, 2016
  • I so enjoy experimenting with machine quilting and getting out of my comfort zone. It is very satisfying to say that you quilted the project yourself.

    —Susan Thornton on October 12, 2016
  • I am option CJ, I am terrified of free motion and messing up my beautiful quilt tops!

    —Leanne cushing on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve been practicing and progressing. I’ve sold a number of panel projects I’ve machine quilted around designs the past several years, and have seen improvement as I accomplish each one. My quilted projects are still mostly quilt in the ditch….

    —Joni Giancola on October 12, 2016
  • I do all my quilts

    —barbara woods on October 12, 2016
  • I love when I finish machine quilting! The hard part for me is what design will I do!

    —Laurasw on October 12, 2016
  • This sounds like it may be just what I need to give me some guidance and confidence to try this. Sounds like it may be easy to follow. Can’t wait to try it out.

    Mary W. on October 12, 2016
  • I would like to learn how to machine quilt. I tried once….what a disaster! I’m sure I am a C on the choices!

    —Susan k. on October 12, 2016
  • C
    I am afraid to machine quilt – don’t have the confidence and don’t want to mess up a quilt I have worked hard on. Maybe the book will give me guidance.

    Julie Buckman on October 12, 2016
  • I think I am the practicing and progressing (slowly) quilter. I like doing ditch stitching and I have done very little free motion quilting.

    —Wendy Hansen on October 12, 2016
  • I took a class awhile back and did terrible. Also,I practiced every day for a week or so. No improvement. I became frustrated and gave up. I guess I’m waiting for the right book and/or teacher. HELP!!

    —Pat Hoxter on October 12, 2016
  • I am a total novice at machine quilting! I need Pat’s help ! Love her books!

  • I’m (still!) practicing and progressing. I think I always will be.

    —Allison Evrard on October 12, 2016
  • B. Practicing and progressing slowly. Practicing on scrap quilt sandwiches helps.

    —Alyssa Fontenot on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing but not sure about the progressing part. When it actually comes time to quilt a top, I automatically revert to SID or some manner of grid work. Lack of confidence is a big obstacle.

    —Sandy May on October 12, 2016
  • I’m going to call myself "practicing and progressing" as I took my first class in FMQ last week. Now to practice, practice, practice. I like your tip about simply quilting on panels. I have bought several, with intentions of doing these fantastic things, but I should just start with the simple outlines on these and then I would be ready for the ‘fantastic’ on some future panels.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing, and hopefully progressing! lol.

    —Cindy S on October 12, 2016
  • I’m doing better at fmq and it’s taken awhile. It does require a lot of practice!! At first I could only do loops and swirls; now I can do stars and feathers and even sewed my initials into my last quilt! While I’m going along I sometimes think it’s not very even but usually when I look back over my work it’s not bad so I think we need to "pat ourselves on the back" more often!!

    —Dianne Kingston on October 12, 2016
  • C, I really need this book!

    —Gwendolyn Clark on October 12, 2016
  • I am a "C" – is that average? LOL! I’ve been quilting for years but can count on one hand the number of quilts I have actually quilted myself. Would love to become proficient at machine quilting too; at least for smaller more manageable projects.

    —Julie G on October 12, 2016
  • Always practicing and progressing. It’s a challenge but I have seen improvement!

    —Marsha on October 12, 2016
  • I do not practice free motion enough to be good at it. I have given up.

    —Margaret Dalmer on October 12, 2016
  • I have sewn all my life. I started with clothes for my self and the my children. I then moved on to selling crafts. Now I mostly sew quilts and table runners. I would love this book to help with the next phase of my quilting experience.

    —Helen on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting for the right book and I an sure Pat’s book is it!

    —Patricia Cash on October 12, 2016
  • Definitely practicing, not so much progressing as I don’t seem to be able to practice consistently enough to progress. Quilting panels is a great idea that I plan on trying before I "mess" up a quilt!

    —Susan on October 12, 2016
  • would so love to gain more confidence in machine quilting. have 4 baby quilts that I have to make over the next few months and that would be so helpful! thanks for this opportunity

    —Carol Broughton on October 12, 2016
  • Sounds like a very helpful book and believe me, I need all the help I can get. I love making the quilt, but quilting it is a whole lot harder.

    —Pamela Dorman on October 12, 2016
  • I definitely need more practice. I can use the walking foot but free motion needs lots of work.

    —Polly Blank on October 12, 2016

    —Claire on October 12, 2016

  • I’m practicing and progressing, but I seem to forget between projects. Any tips would be great.

    —Joel Sellers on October 12, 2016
  • When I first started quilting in 2011, I was as confident as can be. I threw myself into quilting and was progressing pretty well. After several military moves, my quilting slowed down and I got out of whack. So I am now. back to practicing and progressing slowly but surely. My husband has recently retired after 27 years in the Army, so I’m able to really get my sewing space set up just like I want it and really get back into my quilting! So happy being in the zone again.

    —Tanya Hockensmith on October 12, 2016

    —Darrell on October 12, 2016
  • I’m practicing and progressing–but at a slightly higher confidence level. I do most of my own quilting–some straight lines, some free-motion motifs, some meandering. I kind of let the quilt tell me what to do. My quilts usually turn out pretty well, but I dread actually starting each and every time. I have a few of Pat’s books, so I know this one would really help me take that "dread" out of getting started!

    —Sue Nodine on October 12, 2016
  • I am a 2.5! 🙂 I have been trying on my own, but could really use the help of a book/video/instructor, etc. I am also looking for another machine with a larger throat size but way under the long arm price.

    —Annette Lawrence on October 12, 2016
  • I just started quilting about a year ago and have only quilted with my walking foot. Tried several times over the course of the past month to free motion quilt. No, am not confident and still practicing as much as possible without getting discouraged. I probley have watched every video and read every blog or webpage on free motion quilting. Haven’t found a book that could teach me, would love trying your book. It’s the one thing I would really like to learn and master so I could put my own personal touches to each and every quilt I make…

    —Lynda Clute on October 12, 2016

    —Karen McMahon on October 12, 2016
  • I am definitely practicing and progressing. I think FMQ takes courage and the mantra "Just do it"!

    —Kathy Meunier on October 12, 2016

    —Gale on October 12, 2016
  • Pat, I’m continually trying to learn new techniques and ideas. I’ve sewn for 55 years(started when I was 5) and quilted for 30 years of that time but I’m just a beginning to feel comfortable machine quilting my own pieces. I’ve done a few smaller quilts and mug rugs, etc. but I want to be able to do the larger pieces and feel comfortable. You continually share such incredible ideas, I think you book would be a definite plus to my studio.

    —Paula S. Pike on October 12, 2016
  • I am Practicing and Progressing. It is important to me, as it is to Pat Sloan, to make my quilts entirely by myself. So even though it’s a struggle, and my results are just ok, I am very motivated to do my own quilting. Actually the tip in the article, to practice quilting around fabric motifs every day, I think is very good advice! Even if I don’t get the big giveaway, I feel I am a winner; thanks for the tip!

    —Susie on October 12, 2016
  • I have been quilting for some time now and actually hand tied my first few quilts because I was so overwhelmed by machine quilting!

  • Hi Pat!
    I am in the ‘learning and practicing’ stage – new quilter as of a year ago, but I have learned SO much by participating enthusiastically in your ‘Splendid Sampler’! Thank you for all the opportunities for learning, I’m loving every bit of it.

    —Irene Storteboom on October 12, 2016
  • I have tried machine quilting with poor results so I really need to learn!! Thanks so much for the chance!!!

    —Michele on October 12, 2016
  • I am #2 Practicing and SLOWLY progressing!
    I need more hands-on time and lots of instruction. I get frustrated seeing videos with quilters demonstrating on little mug rugs and such. I need to see how to manage a regular quilt for free motion quilting! It’s a bulky piece and I need to know how to maneuver it to get good stitching, and the speed of the machine in relation to how you move the quilt.
    So, you see I need plenty of help!

    —Jonnie on October 12, 2016
  • I am learning quilting and love any information I can get!

    —Pat Hale on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve tried to machine quilt a few times, I’ve bought every gadget I’ve seen. I’m terrible, very herky jerky I always looks like a disaster. I would love to be a smooth and rhythmic quilter. I can do straight lines with a walking foot. It’s weird I"m artistic I can draw. Thanks for the generous giveaway! I can use all the help I can get. ;-> Toni Anne

    —Toni Anne Potter on October 12, 2016

    —Nicki Slater on October 12, 2016
  • In regards to machine quilting I have seriously struggled. I have terrible trouble trying to maintain speed and therefore stitch length. I’m desperate for a way to do it comfortably. I really want to finish a quilt from beginning to end all on my own. I really enjoy making tops but then I have to save to get the quilting done so I always a lot of tops to quilt. Your book sounds like just what I need to master it.

    —Sonia McMartin on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing. I usually stitch in the ditch or outline. Sometimes I stitch along a drawn design on paper. So this book could really help me. 🙂

    —Alta Owens on October 12, 2016
  • I have done meandering and pleased with that, but am worried about doing something else. I just ordered the book for the encouragement to try other things.

    —Cathie Lanier on October 12, 2016
  • No doubt waiting clear instruction from a self taught professional. After reading that you began on a not so good machine (mine is not so great),I figure this could be exactly what I need to try something small (then big maybe!?!). I have no walking foot, but I certainly could try your free motion techniques.

    —cynthia on October 12, 2016
  • Practice makes perfect is how the saying goes ! I hope to get more confident because I have a huge drawer of quilt tops that need to be quilted and finished !

    Sarah Evans on October 12, 2016
  • C. I have been wanting to learn to machine quilt since I started piecing quilts about four years ago. I think I have been afraid to try. What if I ruin my beautiful top? Your book may just talk me off the ledge.

    —Kristy Thomas on October 12, 2016
  • I love free-motion quilting but there’s always room for improvement. I can manage even stitches going straight and outlining but as for stippling or loop-di-loops? I could use a few more tips! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Waiting for the right time to try! Maybe now-with your book!

    —amy on October 12, 2016

    —Joan Buchholz on October 12, 2016
  • Somewhere between the two. b) Practicing and progressing and c) Waiting for the right time (or book) to try! I had a couple of projects that didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped, so have become a bit fearful.

    —Cindy Fraher on October 12, 2016
  • I also like to make my quilt tops as well as quilt them myself.

    I have done straight line quilting, cross-hatching and some free motion. I have purchased several books about quilting on your home machine and I did gain some information here and there. But not enough to be confident.

    BUT, I’m still looking for that perfect book to built my confidence; encourage me to keep at it until I am confident! Perhaps your new book "Pat Sloan Teach Me to Quilt" is just the book I need to finally accomplish my goals!

  • Hello Quilters! I am definitely a B and C! I am so envious of my friends that quilt on their machines! I need to courage up and be more adventurous in the world of stitching. I practice and make small strides (B), but then I am a lover of books to read and soak up to try new ideas.

    —Nancy on October 12, 2016

  • #3…….
    I have wanted to try quilting my own. I have tried a couple of times but not satisfied with the results.. Hopingthis book will help.

    —Dorothy Fry on October 12, 2016
  • I am in the B category – practicing and progressing. Actually, I think that I will always be in this category, because every time I do my free motion quilting I learn something else! It ia such a joy to see the finished project, even though at times I do agonize over what I am going to do with a particular piece! Thank you so much are sharing your talents with us all 🙂

    —Carol J on October 12, 2016

    —Brenda Mc on October 12, 2016

  • 3. c) I just purchased a Crescendo by Babylock! Yes, when I saw you with one I had to check them out. But…now I’m afraid to start. I have several tops needing to be quilted but I am very intimidated. I hand quilt but it’s so slow. Im newly retired and am so interested in quilting, but I am old school. Just getting the hang of machine piecing and I want to quilt my own quilts. Love the tip of starting with pannels…I have some already that I had planned to quilt and donate to our local Ronald McDonald House! So I’m just going to jump in with both feet! Really need to win your book! Thanks Pat, you inspire me to learn and create!

    Sherry Casto on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a newby at quilting. I made one and it was all quilted by hand. I need to move on to machine quilting or I’ll never get anything accomplished since handwork takes so much time. Thanks for this opportunity. Even if I don’t win, I love Pat’s emails!

    —Lois on October 12, 2016
  • Please pick me!!! I am in the second category of "Practicing and Progressing".

    Just 3 weeks I ago I started the process of learning how to machine quilt at home. I have completed 2 projects so far, but I can definitely see improvement as I work! I have only been Quilting for about 2 years, but this is definitely the most challenging sewing technique I have ever tried! I’m looking forward to learning more about it from you!

    —Elizabeth T. on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a total newbie with a love of learning the ins and outs of quilting. I’m beginning late in life at age
    62, but now that I’m retired and have the time, it’s a fun adventure. I would hope to one day achieve the skills to do my own quilting…with Pat’s other books I have learned so much. Thank you!

  • C. For sure. Last one I machine quilted. I swore was the last. But I want to do it myself, and I want it to look as good as I dream it can be. Not a fast quilter. So it is slow progress. Like some of Pats suggestions that I read above, and will start with them. Thanks for the chance

    —Valerie on October 12, 2016
  • Hi there, Still practising and very hesitant. I tried wavy line quilting with my walking foot and seem to be stuck on that…..would love your giveaway, need to move on :o)Thankyou in anticipation.

  • B practicing and progressing. I seem more confident with walking foot quilting and have been practicing and not so much progressing with my machine quilting.

Have been on a couple of courses but found it hard to take so much information in and feel Pat Sloan’s book if perhaps what I need to motivate me

    —Vickie Palser on October 12, 2016
  • I have done only small projects and eager to do more. I love all your books (own them all) and have pre-ordered this one earlier today. I know I will improve with your help and lots of practice. I’m ready!

    —Christine Schaefer on October 12, 2016
  • I have been machine quilting for a long time, but I am never satisfied with the results. I always consider each piece I do "practice" because I know I will never do it as well as I want to do it. I do love to try though. I like to be able to say that I have made the whole quilt from start to finish!

    —Gay McGee on October 12, 2016
  • I desire a method that helps me get past my ADD and enables me to complete the current project before starting the next adventure in fabric. If I would have completed every quilt project I have started I could call my self more then an advanced beginner.
    I love aurifil thread and it has made my sewing more enjoyable!

    —Donna Senters on October 12, 2016

  • Definitely practicing and gradually progressing. I recently purchased a new machine with more throat space, and I do think that has helped me. I have done a few small projects that make me feel I am getting better each time. Love the panel idea! I have a couple that I just didn’t know what to do with. Thanks.

    —Susan on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing and slowly progressing. I need more help and instruction to make sure that I am doing it right. I have a problem with getting the right thread tension and using a consistent hand movements. Pat Sloan is a wonderful teacher and I love everything that she does.

  • Figure truthfully I’m more like a 2.5 – have done some but need to practice & loosen up. Have quilted some small projects, straight lines are fine, but not good at "doodling", so get frustrated easily. Need all the help/tips I can get. Fantastic three prizes, thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Deborah on October 12, 2016
  • B. Quilting was on my bucket list after retirement three years ago. I joined a quilt guild, eventually got a new sewing machine (mine was 49 yrs. old), and started on smaller projects….although my first guild project was a twin quilt. I just finished it this year when my skills caught up to it. Your book was my guide for applique, which I can do fairly well now. The Farmer’s Market is on my list to do. I’ll let you know when free motion quilting is comfortable for me – not yet!

    —Arlene Samuelson on October 12, 2016
  • So far have only straight line quilted some table runners. Could certainly used some coaching! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Ruth Gerkin on October 12, 2016
  • When it comes to fmq I’m in the waiting to jump in category. I’d like to progress beyond walking foot quilting. I was once good at free motion embroidery but that’s much more free form in that you can keep going over an area until you get the density and shape, not individual lines.

    —Lace Faerie on October 12, 2016
  • I’m still practicing on free motion quilting. I’ve taken a couple of free motion classes and am going to actually do it on a small quilt I just made. I’m still unsure of my self but decided I need to attempt it!

    —Judy Partridge on October 12, 2016
  • C I want to learn, but when I have tried it has not been a good turnout for me or my projects. I would very much like to learn and be able to do well at machine quilting. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Karen Brasher on October 12, 2016
  • I’m probably as confident as I can be–which isn’t saying much! I do FMQ all of my quilts. With each one, I feel I get a little better. I like to take my quilts from start to finish–an then I usually give them away as gifts!

    —Liz Horgan on October 12, 2016
  • I have to say my answer is B. I have free motion quilted small wall hangings and a few baby quilts but for the bed size quilts I have been sending them out for the quilting. To quilt a full quilt by a home machine seems daunting. Thanks for your giveaway.

    —Rita Montgomery on October 12, 2016
  • I have just recently started to free motion quilt. I am having a great time, but I need a little bit of guidance.

  • Not confident and waiting for the right time/book to try again. Past attempts have been frustrating with poor results, but I would like to master the technique. Fingers crossed for a better outcome this time!

    —Margaret Fox on October 12, 2016
  • I’ve tried both, with varying levels of success, but I guess I need to practise more as progress , although advancing, is still very slow,albeit in a forward direction. A book and more tutoring, especially in free motion control techniques, would definitely be of tremendous benefit.

    —Barbara Gibbons on October 12, 2016
  • I am practicing & progressing, with the help of my new machine! I am tackling the biggest quilt i have ever started & quilting my bed quilt on the machine in panels. I started off with small projects such as gifts & then a single bed quilt. I love machine quilting & hate hand sewing….

    —Elaine Snyder on October 12, 2016
  • I quilt. And when I say that it means I sew squares together and then tie backing, batting and the pieced top together. This is the way my mother taught me but I am so ready for more. This looks like the book I need to get me on my way to ‘quilting’ and not just tying.

  • I’m still practicing-always looking for more tips to improve my skills.

    —Mary Beth on October 12, 2016
  • Waiting, waiting, waiting! Pat Sloan’s book sounds exactly like THE RIGHT ONE — THE EXCELLENT ONE. I am more confident of the piecing (of which I am definitely not an expert) than of the actual quilting.

    pdxtoni on October 12, 2016
  • I am a newbie at machine quilting, so definitely the 3rd choice of looking for the right book for
    instruction. I can see by watching the video that it will take practice….but it looks fun!

    —Kathy P. on October 12, 2016
  • I’m a 3. Haven’t seen in 30 years and want to learn with someone with the patience of a saint. Your book looks to be a god send. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Pam miller on October 12, 2016
  • I’d say I’m practicing and getting better, but it still takes me forever to pluck up the courage just to start. The hardest part for me is deciding how I want to quilt it!

    —Susan B. on October 12, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing, having completed 5 quilts in the last few months. A little bit every day is the trick.

    —Sandy M on October 12, 2016

    —Annette S. on October 12, 2016
  • Pat is such a great teacher and makes her instructions easy to understand. I am hopeing I will be able to learn to quilt my projects at home.

    —Cheryl on October 12, 2016
  • I am really bad at machine quilting. I need to find someone who teaches so I could do it. I have tried to learn on my own from reading article, following blogs, and just doing it, but I end up frustrated and ready to throw the sewing machine out a window. A lot of cursing goes on too. There is no one near me that teaches, unless you buy a machine. Even then you only get so many hours of teachings. I really need a comprehensive book that makes it easy for me to understand.

    —K. Grace Bryson on October 12, 2016
  • C – Waiting for the right time or book. I love Pat and her generosity. Looks like I need this book.

    —Stacey Felton on October 12, 2016

    —Kay Braun on October 12, 2016

  • I need more help with machine quilting. This giveaway could really boost my quilting skills.

    Joyce on October 12, 2016
  • I think that I’m a #3. I love the look of free motion quilting but so far, I haven’t been able to do very well with it. I’m not confident, but I think that I probably need some more guidelines and instructions to succeed. This book sounds great, and Aurifil is already my favorite thread for piecing!

    —Sharon Gourlie on October 12, 2016
  • I am both confident and hesitant! I have realized that I am a compulsive completer. That includes everything I do with one exception…I detest cleaning up after a project, especially my sewing area. Perhaps, inreason, I may just need that. There is organization in my chaos, but only I can find it! I really do complete my projects, but when given someone else’s to complete, I step outside of myself and the person whose project I am completing, and "get it done!" Most of the time we’re both happy, but not always. I’m finding myself not as willing to begin some of the machine quilting projects, just because I’m not sure of the final vision. Perhaps as a former contract sewer and perfectionist, I’m learning that at times I must slow down and think my way through! I know I’m going to love this new book…it may be things I already know and do, but as an "old dog" I’m always ready to try new tricks!

    —Mellie Peach on October 12, 2016
  • I am a beginner quilter, just started this year. I am using the Stitch in the Ditch method of quilting. I would love to learn how to free motion quilt and I need to learn how to use the walking foot as well. Please help me.

    —Murielle Doucet on October 12, 2016
  • I am a "2″. I have machine quilted a lot of quilts, but not much with a repeating pattern. I don’t like stitch in the ditch, so most of what I have done is pretty random. I like to write words in the quilting to emphasize the feeling I want the quilt to convey. Sure could use a lot of help and practice to improve control and stitch consistency.

    —Karen Poling on October 12, 2016
  • I’m in the second category, practising but not making a lot of progress, hence the need for the book.

    —Anne Trigg on October 12, 2016
  • Certainly not confident, "determined and hope for the best" is about way it works, of course a great book would be a great help; I have the idea that I should be able to do it myself, so "work in progress". thanks.

    —Carol on October 12, 2016
  • Mostly B but sometimes A.

    —Marya on October 12, 2016

    Deb on October 12, 2016
  • I have completed 3 quilts I learn more each time and used different patterns. I still have much to learn and would like to try free motion. All my attempts at free motion looked like free mess on the back. Instruction would be helpful. Most of my quilting skills, to this point, have been on the job training-tough way to learn. Please help!

    —D on October 12, 2016
  • Unfortunately I’m still at #3. I need more instruction and much more practice!

    —Angela Webb on October 12, 2016

  • I’m a B -Practicing and progressing. I send out my really big quilts but try to do my small ones with either my walking foot or free motion but I’m not to steady due to the reasons that I’ve been in a big break in quilting due to surgeries and not being able to sit long time at the machine to practice. I love Aurifil and I really enjoy Pat’s books and patterns. The Splendid Sampler is a great challenge I’ve been enjoying!

    —Cynthia Sandberg on October 12, 2016

    —nancy in IN on October 12, 2016

I follow Pat Sloan on flickr and have made up one of her quilt patterns (still just a pieced queen size quilt top) so winning anything by her would be a huge honor!

    Carbonated Creations on October 12, 2016
  • I have started machine quilting this year. A little free motion and
    a little walking foot. This is a beautiful give away, whoever wins it will be a happy quilter. My little Bernina 900 has been doing me well, but I have dreams of another larger quilting machine some day. This is an awesome opportunity. Thank you.

    Thanks for a chance to win! Fingers crossed ;D

    —Fran Fortner on October 12, 2016

    —Kerry on October 12, 2016
  • I have been practicing but not very confidently. watch a few videos but maybe the right book would give me the extra push. So I guess it would be b and c.

    —Earlene Nelson on October 12, 2016
  • I have tried free-motion and walking foot quilting before, the big but is I am not confident, so I am waiting for the right book to help me. Pat has been great helping with the blocks of splendid sampler, so I hope she can help with my quilting – it’s not quilt until it is quilted.

    —Nicole Harper on October 12, 2016
  • I am B. Started FMQ last year and my family’s quilts looked a bit like a 2 year old did them. I started with just an all over meandering pattern. I just laughed and kept going…kindof of like learning cursive writing. I think I’ve progressed to at least and 8th or ninth grader. Absolutely love FMQ.

  • I love follow Pat Sloan’s blogs and following her patterns to make some awesome quilts. I have dragged my feet…bad pun sorry! But it is time to move onto the level, time to quilt. I have learned a lot reading Pat’s other book now time to get past the the fear of quilting and become confident at quilting. I use Aufil already and can only imagine how great the neutrals would be added to my sewing arsenal! I need your new book, the thread and panels!

    —Karrie Smith on October 12, 2016
  • I can free motion quilt and I have used the walking foot to quilt straight lines. I have done both for years. But fancy free motion like flowers or feathers or swirls. Not at all. I even have a wonderful machine with a stitch regulator. My problem is I won’t sit and practice. Why? Because I have so many things I want to make I dont q take the time to practice and then I end up doing free motion and wishing I could do something else.

    —Margie Brecik on October 12, 2016

    —Beth Byerssmall on October 13, 2016
  • I’m open for improvement when quilting. Your book would certainly offer that opportunity. And inspire me to learn different techniques. I’ve learnered patience, practice and challenges when quilting add that much more to my finished project.

  • I am definitely practising and progressing. I ran a short workshop yesterday for the ladies in my local craft group yesterday on the basics and we all had a great time. I really enjoyed being able to pass on what I have learned so far but I am definitely still learning. Aiming for progression rather than perfection has become my motto since I heard it on one of the Craftsy courses I have taken. Would love to win the book and continue my learning. Thank you for the opportunity and for all your shared knowledge.

    —marg finnimore on October 13, 2016

  • I am relatively new to patch-working and quilting and so far have only managed to do basic ‘in the ditch’ quilting. I really would love to be able to enhance my quilts with scrolls and leaves as I feel that this is what patchwork is all about, I just don’t know how! Hopefully I will win Pat Sloan’s book and can start to learn from an expert.

    —Ann Ross-Smith on October 13, 2016
  • I am 3c. Getting ready to retire and really tackle learning all I can about quilting. My grandma was a quilter and taught me so much, but she passed away in 2011. I want to make her proud! I would love to get started with this book and supplies! I love your website and emails.

  • I fall somewhere between "b" & "c"… I’ve tried walking foot stitch in a ditch, stencils, masking tape, templates and free-motion quilting. But, haven’t seemed to find my niche yet. I love Pat’s teaching style & think this might be what I’m looking for. Eager for the day when I can sit down and enjoy the quilting process instead of getting a dry mouth & butterflies in my stomach when I look at a quilt sandwich! Thank you for this opportunity!

    —CE Hall on October 13, 2016

    I am always looking for tips and continue to try and learn easier ways to proceed. The panels would be good for charity quilts once practiced on. I would like to win. Thank you

    —Johanne Hagar on October 13, 2016

  • I’m at level b. – practicing…but NOT progressing. Every now and then I’ll take a stab at it, but just can’t get the hang of it. Frustrating. I want and need instruction to learn this once and for all, and this book looks like it would provide that as well as motivation!

    I have lots of books on machine quilting, and can’t wait to add this one to my reportore.
    Thank you for the chance to win some fantastic prizes!

    —Kathleen Scargle McCormick on October 13, 2016
  • I am somewhere between practicing and being very apprehensive about my skills and successful outcome. I took a class a few years ago but what really needs to happen is practice, practice, practice! I have done some smaller projects with decent results but I have a long way to go to feel confident in doing a large quilt that I have put a lot of time into already.

    —Wendy Tulloch on October 13, 2016

    —Marjorie Morgan on October 13, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing ever so slowly on my grandmothers old Necchi. I think a practice panel would help, instead of just trying to wing it. So, thank you for that suggestion. Mainly I hand quilt any quilts I make. I would love to learn how to draft a quilting pattern to suit a particular quilt and enhance it. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

    —Teri Hackett on October 13, 2016

  • I am unfortunately one whose machine is so small that at best I can only do doll quilts to baby quilts on it. I have several quilt tops ready for quilting but until I get a different machine with a larger throat I am stuck just practicing on my piecing and learning new techniques there. This book would be a blessing as I have had 2 babies born into family so practice on panel quilts would be ideal. Just found out I am also going to be a great aunt again so make that three baby quilts to make

  • I am definitely still practicing and getting advice from videos and books. This book just might have to be added to my library. I have a very large quilt that needs quilting the top but I am scared to start because it is the largest quilt I have ever quilted. I am using a 50 year old Singer machine that I love to piece with but it isn’t the greatest for machine quilting. This quilt is a Janet Stone ABC quilt and I am so proud of the results so far so I don’t want to mess it up! Pat, I love your blog and all your inspiration you give us. I am up to date on the Splendid sampler and am loving it so much.

    —Janet Schwartz on October 13, 2016
  • I am definitely a c. I am not the most coordinated person, so machine quilting scares me a bit. If the video above is any indication, this book might be the tool to help me overcome my fear and give it a try. I like to learn how to do things the correct way before trying them.

  • C. I’ve only tried stitch in the ditch and that didn’t go well so I’m totally afraid of free motion. Waiting for that shove that gets me over my fear.

    —Lynne Ashton on October 13, 2016
  • Hello, I would pick C as the best choice. Years ago I made a machine quilt with signatures from friends and relatives for my Mom, along with pillow covers.

    I have since wanted to get back into machine quilting, but on a smaller scale. That was a huge project. I was younger and had way more energy.

    I just finished my last chemo treatment and will start radiation in November. I will be home a lot and need a relaxing and worthwhile project to make. I am thinking of lap quilts for my nieces and nephews.

    Thank you for your offering.

    God Bless.

  • I’m not waiting for more time or for the right book. I’m waiting for more SPACE. Granted, more time would be helpful too, and I’d never turn down a book with new information in it. But, space here is at a premium, so ever finding enough space to move a large quilt project around would be like trying to find hen’s teeth to pull.

    Cindy A. on October 13, 2016
  • I guess it’s C for me. I have dabbled a little, but I’m not very confident. I have tops just waiting for me to finish them. This book may give me the push and instructions I need.

So far no one complains on receiving my practice quilts one day I will have the nerve to enter one of my quilts in a quilt show. I feel you can always learn something new.

  • Thanks to the Splendid Sampler – I am practicing and progressing, by leaps and bounds – BUT – I have never quilted. Pieced, yes. Quilted, no. I sure need practice before finishing my Splendid blocks. After a year of making 100 blocks I sure would hate to ruin it all with my quilting.

    —LISA KERLIN on October 13, 2016
  • I don’t know exactly where I am. I have machine quilted about 12 quilts now on my home machine. I would love to have a mid arm machine to go further. Each time I finish one, I learn something and feel I am getting better. My goal is to give all 7 of my children and about 16 of the grand children a quilt before I am done. I will then start giving quilts to charity groups. I guess I would be a "B". I have taken two classes and watched many videos. I would love to have your book to help me progress even more. I have finished two of your block of the months and am now working on the third. I sure have leaned a lot.

    —Eileen on October 13, 2016
  • I am not confident in my quilting abilities, I am practicing but not really progressing as I would like, maybe a well written text book is just the thing I need. Quilting has been a frustrating journey for me. I am an accomplished Highland Dance costumer/seamstress, and have been creating custom garments utilizing basic slopers for decades. But can I create a sharp triangle? Even square? Basic log pattern? No! Not very nicely,at least, and I have wasted so much gorgeous fabric trying to make simple things. It’s very discouraging when I know that I’m just missing something very simple; I just haven’t figured out what yet.

    —Joanne Spence on October 13, 2016
  • I need this book. I have only plucked up the courage to do straight lines on my quilts so far 🙂

I started quilting it but wasn’t at all confident that I was giving it due justice. I finished a row and part of another. I love this quilt and am so afraid I will mess ir up!! I keep saying that I am going to finish it, so I guess I just need to buckle down and do it!! Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize package!!❤️

    —Christine on October 14, 2016
  • As they say, "practice makes perfect". Well, maybe not so perfect, yet. Guess I would be a B heading for better. Due to circumstances I don’t get the regular routine that is needed to maintain proficiency. I need more designs to turn to as I seem to be stuck in a rut.

I started out making items that were way too big….for a beginner, and I didn’t take a class to learn the basics of quilting. I am doing that now! Finally, I can enjoy following my Passion… learning about new techniques in classes, with other women on the same path. I have always loved fabrics, with books a close second! I’m haaving so much FUN….it’s about time!

    —Karen M. Jalonski on October 14, 2016

    —Diane on October 14, 2016
  • Practicing and progressing!!!I am taking classes and learning the correct techniques, and am Finally confident in my quilting. I have loved sewing just about all my life. My sister and I were in a 4-H club…sewing, cooking, gardening…you name it..we did it! But my Passion lies in the FABRIC!!! I just Love Quilt shops…the array of colors is mesmerizing! No wonder I’m usually in there a couple hours:)

    Karen M. Jalonski on October 14, 2016

    Jeri Hutchins on October 14, 2016
  • I bought a wonderful Babylock Jane so that I could do my own Quilting. Then, I took a beginners class on free motion quilting a couple of years ago, and I practiced a little, then a little more. But, after finishing seven tops, I still feel unsure of myself to put any of them under the needle and for me to do the free motion quilting. Maybe if I could just get going on one I’ll feel more confident. I"ve completed a couple of throw sized quilts to begin with. Your video sounds like what the doctor may have ordered!!

    —Linda on October 14, 2016

  • I would have to say that I am practicing and progressing when it comes to machine quilting. I don’t have a long-arm, so what machine quilting I do is done on the smaller quilts I do while sitting at my dining room table. My larger quilts I still quilt by hand (the way my mammaw taught me) because they are difficult to do on my home machine. Would love the chance to read Pat’s book for the helpful hints I’m sure are in it.

    —Gail Davis on October 16, 2016

    —Martha C on October 16, 2016
  • Hi, Pat. I’m a beginning quilter. So, I could benefit from your book "Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Machine Quilt" immensely.

    —Sharon Carbine on October 16, 2016
  • I would have to say there are times when I’m all 3 types, especially if it is a something I’ve worked on for a while and is now ready to be quilted. Taking that initial first step is always scary to me, but once I get started, I find the process very relaxing. I don’t care how experienced you are, there are times when you still need to practice to fine tune your skills or a particular design you wish to use. I try to make sample practice squares to play with a design and, when I feel I have it just right, then I will use it on the project. By doing practice squares, I’m less likely to do a frog stitch. Thanks for the opportunity Pat, and thank you for sharing your creativity, your talent and your skills.

    —Terri Drake on October 16, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing…with much room for improvement!

    —Esther Grimes on October 16, 2016

  • I’m B – practicing and trying to progress. With Pat’s book this will help me to progress.

    —Renea Bailey on October 16, 2016
  • #2 – Practicing and progressing. Planned to spend the summer quilting tops I had been collecting for years. Had just completed 1 first double-sized quilt and was happy with it (had quilted small wall hangings). Took my machine with me on our extended vacation; I plugged it in and it sewed in reverse. I turned it off and started again – the same thing. So, I unplugged it and decided to check it out the next morning. Talk about being excited – when I turned it on I was sewing in the right direction. Than found out it would do nothing else (so stitch length changes, no reverse) – but I was a happy camper. I’d always wanted to make a courthouse stairs block table runner and to use my reproduction fabric scraps (I’m really a bright fabric person) in a string quilt (not realizing that string quilts seem to be the rage now). I started both – scared each time I turned machine off at night that is would not work when I turned it back off – it did continue to work, thank goodness. Now I have two additional tops waiting with the others to be quilted! And machine is off to the big repair place in the north! And I’m eagerly awaiting my next attempt at finishing all the tops I’ve completed.

    —Win on October 16, 2016
  • I am ready to try! Looking forward to the new book.

    —Karen on October 16, 2016

    —Julee Rachels on October 16, 2016

I’ve struggled in a machine class, and have been unable to try again out of fear. I think that with the help of Pat Sloan’s book and Aurill thread, I’m sure I will be able to machine quilt without fear!!!!

    —Debora Harlow on October 16, 2016
  • I’ve been waiting for the right time to get back to quilting. This book sounds perfect for me! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    —Denise C on October 16, 2016
  • O.K. Practicing by what my machine tells me is not working out for me. I must be doing something wrong! I have tried it and it doesn’t seem like a natural up and down flow. I made these twelve beautiful flowers ( I don’t remember what you call them) with the center round in the middle. The ends are pointed and sewn together in a round circle. I used a moda fabric on a tan background and the middle round center is red. They are beautiful. I would love to quilt the background in some sort of pebble type pattern to make the flower pop and make the strips separating them look stunning but do not know how. I need to have the book to read what kind of thread to use and how to use my machine to do this.
    So please pick me as a winner?

  • I’m practicing and progressing, however I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep it up. I have a back problem that is really keeping from even sitting at my sewing machine right now but I LOVE doing it so hope I can get back at it and keep on practicing and progressing!!

    —Barb on October 17, 2016
  • I have tried many times to FMQ on my sewing machine, even took a class, but I am hopeless! I have a speed problem and I must be directionally challenged because I keep crossing over lines. I need all the help I can get because I really would like to quilt my own community service quilts. Thanks.

    —Joy A on October 17, 2016
  • I am a real novice at machine quilting. Never did quilting. Am looking forward to getting Pat’s book because it sounds like it would be real helpful to me.

    —Sandra L on October 17, 2016
  • I have been waiting for the right time to learn, and 2017 is my year. This book would be a great help. I have 2 problems. First is the speed. I am also considering finding the correct musical accompaniment to get my hand-foot coordination in sync, if the demonstrated method doesn’t work.

    The second problem is getting my head around the fact that I am essentially quilting in reverse. Unlike the high-priced quilting machines, When I move the fabric forward, I am essentially moving the needle backwards. That will just take long hours of practice.

    I believe your book will be a great help.

    —Helen Martin on October 17, 2016
  • Well if my friends would tell you (and they would) I am a B, but I am striving to be an A. With lots of time and help from my friends, I’ll get to B+. I will keep practicing.

    —Sylvia on October 17, 2016
  • I wish I could honestly say i was practicing. It scares me. However I am slowly mastering quilting from the rear tracing over the fabric print, transfering design elements from the fabric into the blank spaces on the front and pebbling. I can not stipple for the life of me. This is were practice would help.

    I love the idea of the five panel quilts to gain confidence. I can do that…maybe.

    —Melinda Coupland Thorne on October 17, 2016
  • C! I’ve actually only quilted my own quilts in my machine but it’s just been straight lines mostly. I haven’t had the time to practice or learn the right way yet… I’m super excited for this book to come out! Top of my Christmas list, well besides this baby growing inside me 😉

    Cherie on October 17, 2016
  • I am practicing and progressing. I am still nervous about it. I like to free motion small projects. I do like the feeling of quilting my quilts myself. I did just send a quilt to a quilter because it was just too large for me to tackle on my own. I plan to buy Pats new book.

    —Nancy Edwards on October 17, 2016

  • It has been a long time since I machine quilted, but I would like to get back to it. I am afraid it will be like completely starting over. And I do know it takes practice, practice, practice. And like anything else if you don’t use the skill you lose it. I would love to have Pat’s book to help me relearn machine quilting.

    —Jenny Draper on October 18, 2016

    I’m not confident, but I’m still trying. I found it a great tip to practice free motion quilting on a panel! The lines are already there to more easily follow. Thanks Pat! 😃
