I just want to say I LOVE your website! Your instructions are
very easy to follow, and the diagrams are extremely helpful. I've
visited many websites and yours is the best. I'm making my first quilt and I'm already hooked. Thank you for providing so much helpful information.
You are a blessing to all quilters. I found your website
through a suggestion from someone on a forum I visit sometime. Your lessons and tips are very easy to understand and follow, and some of which are a confirmation of what I have been using. I am encouraged to continue and not give up. By the way, I live in Michigan.
Thank you, thank you for your wonderfully clear directions on
quilt making. After reading so many books on quilting I had become very confused. Your directions and illustrations are very clear and to the point. For a hands on learner I had no trouble following any of them. I have a young friend who wants to learn to quilt also, and I am sending her to your site.
I just finished reviewing your web site and want
to tell you that it is one of the best ones for
beginners and anyone who needs a refresher course.
Thanks for all the great diagrams. They really
I wanted to say that I just found your website, and I can't wait to get started! I don't even know how to thread my machine yet, but I thought quilting would be a good way to learn how to sew (ok, I didn't learn "girly" stuff when I should have) and at the same time have something worth keeping at the end.
I like your step-by-step approach (I am, by profession, a chemist), and if anything would work for a blockhead like me (pun intended), that will! I will let you know how things go.
I LOVE your site. I've wanted to teach
myself how to quilt for a long time but have been
somewhat intimidated by it, so I never took the
time. Like you, so many of the books seem confusing and I've
just gotten frustrated with them.
I found your website about a year ago. I hadn't sewn in years
and decided to look into machine quilting and your site was extremely helpful. Great, simple and valuable information with easy-to-follow instructions. I learned to quilt with your help.
I decided one day I wanted to make a quilt. So I went out
and bought a sewing machine. Then I went to the fabric store and bought a pattern and the required materials listed on the package. The clerk at the store told me it was an easy-to-follow pattern (they must not know what easy means lol).
What a super site you have created. I
am an avid crochet person and have recently been
told no more crochet because of elbow surgery etc.
I have all the supplies for quilting and never
could find a person or web-site that I could
follow, till now. Yours is incredible and I hope I
have the stamina to continue to learn the great
things I've read here.
Thanks for a great start. Sincerely,
An angel you are! Tonight I
renewed 17 quilt books from the library for the
second time and started to look for baby quilt
patterns on the web when I came across your site.
The looking is over.
Thank you so much for such clear, well written, well illustrated instructions for sashing a quilt. This has made putting my quilt
together a really easy job, and I am in your debt.
Your website is really great! I have recently decided that I
wanted to make a quilt, but didn't have any idea where to start. I looked into the community college and kits on ebay, but the cost was more than I could afford. I did a search for web help and there you were! I've already started on the blocks and it's really cool!!!! Thanks, and keep up the awesome work!
Two of my closest friends are both going be new moms. Since I
have some sewing experience, I thought I'd make them each a beautiful quilt! It's a timeless and useful gift! But then I thought to myself, "This is gonna be difficult if I know nothing about quilting."
I have been searching for "how to" websites to teach myself how to quilt. My grandmother always quilted and I never learned how. I'm a
young mother now and am wanting to make quilts for my family and children.
Love your site. It explains a lot. Yes, I want to make myself a
quilt. Thanks to your site I'm going to make myself a quilt.
I wish I had came across your site before now. GREAT site. I will send you a picture of it as soon as I can. I'm on a very tight budget, so it may be a little while. Thanks for good info.
I am totally new at sewing. I tried out
the beginner wall quilt and did a great job. I
am so excited!! Your directions were so easy to
follow, especially for someone who has only
hand-sewn a button!!
I found your website by mistake and I am
glad!!!!! I have tried and tried to quilt and
became so upset I put it away and just give up. I
have Mutiple Sclerosis and I have a hard time
trying to remember steps.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Finally I found a site that gives me all the help I
need as a novice to the quilting world. I am so
happy I didn't have to fill out a questionaire to
simply see the "FREE" patterns and what was on your
site. The instructions are clear and the
graphics are wonderful to help me visualize what I am
suppose to be doing. Thanks again!
I just want to say, "Thank you and God Bless." I have wanted to try and get into quilting, watching programs on tv, I feel like I can do this and would be good at it. I am very crafty and sew garments, but did not know how to get started with quilting. I am going to make this sampler quilt.
Thank you for this website. I am a very very beginner and I have been searching for a few days for complete and easy to understand
explanations. I have read through a lot of sites and from them I have gleaned the basics. But most give only bits and pieces to tantalize and tease.
I am expecting my first grandchild and have been debating whether to tackle the task of sewing a baby quilt. Not sure where to begin, I started searching the web and 'bumped' into your site. THANK YOU!
Awesome site, very easy to follow for a beginner quilter. Thank you for taking your time to make things easier for another beginner to understand.
What a wonderful website you have!! I
am FINALLY going to attempt to make my son a log
cabin quilt using your simple and easy to
understand directions. Thank you for sharing and I hope
others enjoy your site as much as I have.
God Bless and have a wonderful day!
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website and the clear as crystal instructions/pictures. I only
recently caught the quilting bug and just don't have the time to take lessons and no one I know quilts.
I love your site. Your instructions are so detailed, so easy to read and to follow. I am a beginner, and I was so afraid to reach out. But with your help, I can. Thanks so much and God
bless you. There are not very many people who think of others and how to help them. Again I say thank you.
Just wanted to say "Thank You" for a super site.
I have been sewing for many years and I always
intended to get around to patchwork, but never
quite made it - until 3 days ago when I found your
I just received Jan's email with the website link
to your wonderful, and very encouraging Sew a
Quilt site. I am the president of the Bees. The
Vegas Quiltin Bees will fall in love with it and our
beginners will find it easy to understand. Keep up the good work.
This is a fabulous site! I want to link
to it from our non-profit guild's website, and we
would also like to make a donation to your
website and be able to teach from your lessons.
I just found your site and I think it is
wonderful, your instructions are very easy to
understand and since I have only been quilting for
about 4 years and have made 4 quilts, I still feel
I am a beginner and have a lot to learn, keep up
the great work.
Again I can't thank you enough for having this
website available for the total beginner like me.
Of all the books I have purchased, you are the
only one who can see the occasional overwhelming
frustration a beginner can feel on their first
For a beginning quilter (starting long
after several careers which were wonderful), I
have really enjoyed your SewaQuilt Free quilt
patterns & quilting lessons format.
I'm new to the quilting world, and after looking
at many, many quilt sites...
...I so very much appreciate the simplicity of
your teaching 'us newbees'!
I just wanted to say thank you for
making such an extremely helpful website. I am new to
quilting and didn't really know much about basics
or where to begin so reading this definitely
helped me out. I can't wait to get started now that
I have learned so much!
Thanks so much for your wonderful
instructions for the above sampler. I have never done
any quilting but found this to be very easy to
follow. I was very pleased with the finished
Thank you so much for all of your information on your web site. Now if I could just remember it all!
I hope it will be available for years to come. Thanks again.
I just had to write to thank you for all the wonderfully
written instructions, hints, and other resources on your
website. After 30 years of working full time I have
recently found myself with a lot of time on my hands.
I love your web site! I am a self taught quilter and your tips and advice have come in handy! Can you post more? Love 2 Quilt!
Wow! I saw my quilt and my name under the student quilts. I feel like a celebrity. Thanks so much. I tell everyone about your web site. This was the very first quilt I did and I made it 1/31/06. Thanks again.
I came across your web site and I just love it. I am a
beginner and I cant wait to make my first quilt. If you
have a newsletter, I would love to subscribe. Thank you
so much and may God bless you.
My dear lady, I find your lessons very easy to understand. I'm a
beginner in quilting, and I just love it. Many thanks to you for
kindness and a lot of help. Many thanks.
Thank-you. I just finshed my first quilt, and I love quilting. Yes, I'm so happy I started with a small quilt first. Doing your sampler quilt made me fall in love in quilting. Thank-you. I look forward to making more, hopefully from one of your patterns.
I am enjoying your site very much. I am a beginner quilter and your site seems to be very user friendly.
Thank you! I wish I knew about your site 6 years ago when I started quilting. Like you, I've learned by trial and error from every book I could find on quilting.
I just wanted to say thank you! I was so excited to find your website. I am new to quilting and this site is so imformative. I am looking forward to getting started and will rely on your site for all of the basics to get me through. Thanks again.
Hello, I just found your site by chance, and because I have
spent so much money on classes, fabrics, and books etc., I still could not produce anything worthwhile. I gave up and put everything away. Now I am retired, in an apartment, just lost my 21-year-old grandson to cancer, and desperately looking for something to fill my time and ease the broken heart.
