    How could we make it ‘modern’? I have a hard time understanding the concept and am wondering if this might be something to try with this challenge?

    what cutting tool brands do you use. i have found that i end up with varying sized blocks in a different Block of the week group i’m in. also what if any sized special rulers or cutting tools might be useful for this project?

    About the spray starch…I just heard somewhere that starch has things in it that will attract bugs when the quilt is stored. So the suggestion was to wash the piece after it is finished to get the starch out so it can be stored.

    Why do ridges or bulges sometimes develop if you are using a heavy quilting design? How do you avoid this problem? Do you always start in the center and work out to the edges?

    I noticed on your website there are kits available for the Quilt challenge. I like the mono one with pink, but I am having a hard time deciding where the pink will go. Can you explain or tell me where I might find a picture of it? Thanks so much

    I’m new to quilting. I got 30 weight machine quilting thread. Is this a a good weight or do I need the 60 weight thread?

    Is there a thread out there than can be used for practice so your not wasting thread/material.

    I cut off part of my index finger for a “sharp” rotary cuter, so now I wear a thimble or a rubber tip for hot glue.

    With quilt as you go are you talking about stitch in the ditch kind of look or different designs in the spaces between?

    I just started long-arm quilting & LOVE it. I really like using pantagrams. The shop I go to offers rental . time on one of their machines after an initial class. Would a pantagram work for this? Thanks

    I’m still trying to decided if I am ready for the quilting club. I have 8 blocks completed for a wall hanging which was done in a class. The class ended and I don’t even know where to go from here. I am truly a novice. Perhaps I am not ready for the quilting challenge. Your thoughts please.

    I start beginers with three colours and one contrast. Starting with a simple four patch, expanding to larger blocks and techniques slowly. Learning can be overwhelming and scare potential quilters off all together.

    I signed up for the newsletter, have not received it and when I go to the National Quilting Circle, keep getting “failed-network error” and can’t download coloring page or any information on the block challenge.

    Gina you’ve talked a lot about rotary cutters, but how do you feel about Accuquit or Sizzix cutters

    Understand Quilt Challenge began Jan 11 but have not received email for first block. I have already signed up to receive weekly blocks—where can I go to get block or just wait for email? Thank you.

    Retired Banker . Took a few classes on Quilting at the local quilt shop . Experimenting on patterns I buy. Invested in a few quilting magazines and books and lots of material. I take the finished quilts to the shop to be finished but this costs an arm and a leg .Thinking about buying a quilter soon.

    Hello, I have signed up for the quilt block challenge and I have received the emails with the fabric requirements and pattern for block 2. I have not received the pattern for block 1.
