    Ive done a few patchwork mug rugs. And I’m working on an American Flag wall hanging with scrap fabrics.

  2. Jeanne says:

    Several quilts and a jacket that was made from large patchwork squares.

  3. Lynn H says:

    Years ago I made a patchwork apron that I dearly love. Lately I’ve made my GRANDs several “blankeys” out of scraps for them to drag around and love on. I always have plans for bigger, better more planned quilts but don’t seem to ever get started! I guess I just like the scrappy look.

  4. I have done quilting in various forms, but never patchwork piecing, and the skirt on the cover is so inspiring! I’d love to make it!

  5. Lauren A says:

    i haven’t really been doing any patchwork unfortunately since I am getting ready to move. i am toying around the idea of cutting of tshirts into strips and making a few new garments. But I don’t want to make a mess before I move. :)

  6. angela cianfaglione says:

    I have never heard of patchwork so this book looks very interesting. I would love to learn!

  7. Cindy F says:

    I’m new to patchwork. Have done a couple small wall-hangings, a couple table-toppers and a ‘princess’ quilt for the birth of my granddaughter last year. In the planning stages of a quilt for my grandson who will be born any day now.

  8. melissa bailes says:

    I make prayer quilts which are simple but very meaningful . I use patchwork to make stoles for priests and banners for churches.

  9. Carol says:

    What patchwork projects do you have under your belt? I think the best answer is the project I just finished. A friend of mine just lost 25 pounds (great job Paula!!) and her brand new Jeggings (knit leggings that look like jeans) no longer fit well. She asked me to add some belt loops so she could wear a belt to keep them comfortable. Easy project with some left over denim!! Patchwork and belt all in one answer!!! :-)

  10. Diana Ross says:

    I love patch working using lace to patch up jeans, quilts and anything worn and loved, so the love can keep going:)

  11. Colleen K. says:

    THIS IS GREAT FOR A MONDAY MORNING. I NEED SOME NEW IDEAS TO GET BACK INTO QUILTING AND SEWING. MY EYE SIGHT IS FAILING BUT I KEEP TRYING. PATCH WORK PIECING IS FUN AND EXCITING…..LET’S SHOW THE WORLD WHAT WE CAN DO !!!

  12. Rebecca Mashburn says:

    I’ve been saving all my scraps from my daughter’s dresses I’ve made. I want to make her a strip quilt with all those memories in it.

  13. Cindy Dubay says:

    I have one patchwork jacket made, and some mug rugs, quilting looks too complicated though. The seminole patchwork would be a great way to use up my bushels of scrap fabrics, I like the quick & easy projects!

  14. Audrey says:

    I enjoy making patchwork items…potholders, mug rugs, and just about anything patchwork. Makes me feel good being about to make something useful out of scraps.

  15. Susan Spiers says:

    Working on felt, Holly Hobby Christmas stocking…..ssshhh Embroidered then stitched together.

  16. Cynthia Harper says:

    I have enjoyed patchwork since I was 10 yrs. old, started out making patchwork blankets for dolls, and then pillows,then moved up to lap quilts and bigger quilts, with patchwork the possibilities are endless!!! In high school, I entered a contest and won first place ribbon for a patchwork vest, I’m 51 now,eyesight fading ,but still enjoy doing patchwork.

  17. Debby says:

    I love making “mug rugs”, gives me an opportunity to practice free motion quilting and they are wonderful gifts!!

  18. Vicki Fisher says:

    I have made a few tied quilts, but I would like to do more. It always seems to be on my “want to do” list.

  19. Savannagal says:

    I’ve never done any patchwork projects. Would love to try. I have a load of fabric scraps. Thanks.

  20. Susan Harvey says:

    I do “patch” work all the time for my little grand kids. Seems like something always needs “patching”. I am planning projects for fall that involve more fun, though.

  21. Regina Roza says:

    many wallhangings and tablerunners…working on holiday stuff next!

  22. Becky Donaldson says:

    I’ve done a few patchwork pieces. Mostly little tabletoppers, pillows, even a kimono pieced quilt picture from fabric from Japan. Most recently was one with Flip Flops for my daughter-in-law. The granddaughters tried to confiscate it! I will be doing more and more as my grandchildren continue to come!
    This book looks interesting- Native American! How interesting!!!!

  23. I used to make tons of patchwork bags. Time to make another!

  24. Beth says:

    I have done tons of quilting. I LOVE cutting up fabric and sewing it all back together. You have to try it once because it does sound a little silly describing it that way. And then you will be hooked!

  25. Roberta Schultz says:

    I’ve done quilts, pillows and pj’s.

  26. Kelli says:

    I have made a few purses but would love to make more & this book would be great for more ideas.

  27. Pat Hersl says:

    Hundreds of them. It’s a disease that can’t be fought. Too many enablers.

  28. Diane Cook says:

    I did a patchwork skirt once. I got alot of compliments on it!

  29. shirley richardson says:

    Along time ago, I made a patchwork pocket tote to carry her doll & doll clothes, she saved it and now my 2 granddaughters play with it for hours and hours. Time to make more heritage projects.

  30. Carol K E says:

    I have a king sized Quilt, a throw and a baby quilt currently in progress. Also just started 3 table runners for a silent auction for our church fall festival. Bless Meta who gave us bins full of hand dyed cotton fabric in every color and hue.

  31. gail m says:

    I’m teaching myself free motion and have been making placemats, the various colors make it fun. I just read that someone wrote they make mug rugs, I love that idea.

  32. Cheryl says:

    Quilts, a coat, purses and totes…..to name a few.

  33. sunny says:

    I have made place mats, and a few small patchwork quilts.

  34. Paula H says:

    right now I am reworking a quilt into patch work as a baby quilt. It started out as a strip quilt but when I washed it it fell apart. So now it will be patch work since that is all I can come up. It should really be cute in the end.

  35. BJMarley says:

    Red faced confession. I have never completed a patchwork project.

  36. Mary M says:

    I just patched up the knees on a pair of jeans with a tree and birds. It was great fun. I’m working on a patchwork purse currently. Thanks!

  37. Jackie says:

    I’ve sewn pillows, bags, aprons, clothing, place mats, curtains and quilts using patchwork!

  38. Maria Kievit says:

    Anything that can be sewn together, and if one piece doesn’t fit, add others till you have a piece of material big enough to work with. Patchwork anytime!

  39. Mama Lusco says:

    Not very many at all!

  40. alice says:

    i have many quilts under my belt but my favorite patchwork projects tend to be small ones…like purses, book covers, totes and other quick projects.

    I have made a variety of patchwork quilts, totes, wall hangings, pillows, purses, bed runners, table runners, bowls, and a jacket.

  42. L Zakostelecky says:

    I need 48 hour days to fit in everything I would “like” to piece!!! Just finished a baby crazy quilt.
