The last book is Christmas is Coming: Appliqué Quilt Patterns to Celebrate the Season by Cheryl Almgren Taylor (Martingale, 2013). Inside are over a dozen fun Christmas patterns to make for the holidays. From table runners to wall hangings to pillows, the cute items will bring holiday cheer to your home.

You'll love to win our Modern Quilts Datekeeper (C&T Publishing, 2013). It's a perpetual weekly calendar featuring 60 beautifully photographed quilts. Any quilt lover will enjoy using it to remember birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other special occasions.

You'll find helpful tips and tricks for designing beautiful quilt borders with Karen Kay Buckley's Border Design Workshop (Dream Mountain Studios, 2013). The DVD includes all you'll need for the lesson to learn about border types and styles, measuring to ensure a flat quilt, appliqué borders to fit your quilt, and binding options.

RobinMcClure writes: I would Love to win this, I have yet to finish 1 quilt, But I am ambitious and usually try the hardest first before trying something easy, I fell in Love with trying to make them when I was younger and used to watch my aunt make them from her own designs. When she could no longer sew which was a year ago I inherited 2 of her 3 sewing machines and all her supplies for quilting , so I began about 15 quilts I am hand embroidering a few of them for my grandkids with designs I have drawn out. one is a drawn out hand embroidered Wedding quilt for my daughter, which is 3 years now into the making of it. Most of my Family live in the colder states and could use them and as I like giving gifts every year that are hand made it is my goal to make each Family member a quilt. I have 20 going as of now.I now have 2 of my 3 girls interested in trying to make them, and a 12 granddaughter. I cant wait to get my design quilt done for my Mom its of a tree of life quilt with each one of the great grandkids own handprints sewn into it! I love doing crafts of all kinds, My Goal is to be able to teach my own to carry on those traditions !

shannonmgrt writes: I would LOVE this Giveaway. The first quilt I would make would be a baby quilt, I am going to be a first time Aunt! I learned to quilt from my great grandmother. She made quilts from her old clothing. I love to repurpose and quite honestly, we are on hard times right now and I cannot afford to go and buy new fabrics. I love remembering my grandmother by making this style quilt.

cnuland writes: It's my goal in 2014 to make a quilt. But I think I might first try making a quilting table runner. Then if that's a success I want to make a full-size quilt for my daughter's bedroom.

tiffsterr writes: Although I have never made a sewn quilt before I just finished piecing a knitted block afghan for a queen sized bed. Right now I am sewing curtains and shades for my home and hope to develop two quilted cornices from used denim jeans. I am a novice sewer and would love all the direction and advice I can get.

pjhelm writes: I used to sew all the time when my grandmother had her own fabric store. I keep thinking that I will start again and quilting would be the best way to start again. Would love to make something to keep warm under during the winter while watching old movies. Maybe winning this would be the way to jump start me to sew again!

maryhall writes: I love the different fabric patterns and colors about quilting. I can take a ton of different fabrics and put them together to make something useful, that family and friends will appreciate, use and love. My daughters and son have quilts that they've had for years and they constantly tell me, "We snuggled under your quilt last night."
