Quilt Magic | Giving Day 6

All posts may contain affiliate links.

I can hardly believe that today is day 6 in the 12 Days of Giving . That means we are officially halfway through and now is the time to catch up on entries.  Let’s start with today’s box of goodies filled with quilt magic.

Days of Giving - 12 Days of Giveaways

Do you believe in quilt magic? I do! I truly believe that quilts really are magical. Not only are the beautiful to look at, heartwarming to give but they can provide warm and comfort. There really is something special about these small pieces of fabric we slice up and stitch back together. Each design is so personal just like the hands that made it. My question is, how do you finish your quilts? Is it on a domestic machine at home or do you send the quilt top off to be finished on a long arm machine?

'Tis the season and it is better to give than receive. Today's giveaway is all about quilt magic. It is packed with sewing inspiration. Be sure to see all of the prize packages being offered during The Sewing Loft's 12 Days of Giving. Over $1200 in prizes.

And for those of you want to start that next project but don’t have time for a full quilt, this package as a the mini quilt kit. All you need to do is cut, sit & sew!

  1. Very small projects I will finish at home on my domestic sewing machine. My mother, however, did all her quilting by hand. I am lucky enough to have a queen size quilt that she pieced and quilted by hand. I’m just not sure I am ready to attempt hand quilting yet. It takes talent and patience I did not inherit!

  2. I always finish them at home

  3. I finish my own quilts but they are straight line stitching and leave alot to be desired!!

  4. I send the complicated quilting out to a LAQ. Simple, I do at home on my machine.

  5. Elaine H. says:

    I normally finish them at home but I did try a mail away service and it worked out well.

  6. Liz Horgan says:

    I quilt them myself–love to make it from start to finish!

  7. Sandy Allen says:

    I finish my quilts at home, just not as quickly as I would like! 🙂

    I finish at home.

    I’ve only sent one of my quilts out to be quilted. It was a special wedding quilt that I had worked on for a year and wanted to to look especially good. Thanks, grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

  11. Debbie Brewster says:

    I have quilted all of my projects on my home sewing machine so far. They are not perfect, but when finished, I can say I did it all.

  12. DeeDee Johnson says:

    I have never officially finished off a quilt to know this.. hoping next year is my first one.. Wink. 😀

  13. NevadaJane says:

    I have only done smaller projects and have done them myself at home.

  14. Nancy Baker says:

    I finish my own, which is why I have so many unfinished!

  15. I am trying to do some quilting at home on my domestic machine but don’t have a lot of room to make my quilt sandwich. Most of my quilts so far have gone to my lovely long arm quilter.

  16. I finish my quilts at home…all but one of them, which I had quilted because it was a T-shirt quilt and I wasn’t quite sure how to do it.

  17. Susan R Jones says:

    At Home- don’t have the money to send them out.

  18. I finish my own quilts so that i can say that i made them….start to finish!

  19. I finish my own quilt. For years, I did hand quilting. Now, I do mostly machine quilting.

  21. Cindy Zink says:

    Any sewing project.

  22. Alycia Maurer says:

    I either do Stitch in the Ditch on my domestic machine or send to a long arm quilter. I have taken a FMQ class and need more practice!

  23. Jayne Dough says:

    I try to complete most at home, but if they are extra special or extra large I send them out.

  24. Today’s prize is awesome! My projects are quilted by me at home. Someday I’d like to try a long-armer, but for now, I’m managing!

  25. If the quilt is smaller than a throw, I currently send out to have it quilted. Anything smaller, I’ve done myself. I hope on day to be able to do them all myself some day.

  26. I finish at home. I have on my list of new things to learn for 2018 is to rent a long arm and long arm my own quilts. Eventually I want to purchase a sit down quilting machine.

    I have done all my own quilting

  30. I’ve only sent 2 of my quilts to a long arm quilter to complete because I wasn’t sure how to quilt them, but since then I’m more confident in my FMQ & my abilities to do the quilting on my domestic sewing machine. The more you do, the better you get.

  35. Debbie Pearcey says:

    I have sent my quilt once to a long armer and it was beautiful and I had it hand quilted by a group once but I cannot afford that and I feel sometimes like I am cheating but my machine quilting skills are not very good and I often end up hand quilting so not many quilts get finished but there is a sense of accomplishment when they are. I think I would like to start sending them out the professionals have such great designs

  36. I finish them at home.

  37. I finish my quilts on my domestic machine

  38. I use a local longarmer – I have a very small space and a very basic machine. If I were younger I would love to learn to longarm. I will finish all small projects from baby quilts and smaller myself but for anything larger, I spend big bucks to get it done.

  39. Brenda Hulsey says:

    I send them out to be quilted.

  40. I do both. If it’s a show quilt or larger then Queen it goes to a Pro.

  41. Margaret Wellstead says:

    I finish my quilts with my domestic machine or by hand

    Pillows and mini quilts i finish myself, larger than lap quilts I send to the quilter. thanks

  48. smithy65Diane says:

    I quilt my smaller items (twin and smaller) on my Janome regular sewing machine. The rest I pay to have done and might be why I try not to do many big projects. Very expensive. I appreciate all the effort and time, just too costly. Enjoy your day

    If they are smaller than a lap quilt, I hand quilt them. If they are lap quilt size I might attempt to quilt them on my home machine. Any longer and they go to the longarmer! I have 3 that I use and they do a wonderful job. I do my own binding after that.

  58. Elizabeth Porter says:

    I send some quilts to a longarmer. If they are smaller, I will quilt those. I also hand quilt some.

  175. I finish at home, either with a walking foot on my Viking Sapphire or free motion with my Juki TL2010Q.

  176. lewisnancy54 says:

  188. I do my own quilting on a domestic machine. It’s getting to be my favorite part of quilting.

  189. JustGloria says:

    Be they quilts for tiny babes, or larger quilts for teen,
    Mighty quilts to fit a king, and many for a queen
    With hopeful patience; guidance from above,
    With sweat on brow, some tears and love
    Piece to block and start to finish on my sewing machine.

  190. I enjoy finishing my quilts on my home sewing machine with free motion and rulers.

  191. My large quilts go out to my longarm quilter. Joanie does a fantastic job for me! The smaller projects I quilt on my domestic machine or I hand quilt. I’m hoping to get brave enough to try a larger project on my domestic.

    The quilting is my favorite part of making a quilt. I use my own sewing machine and I have rented time on a long arm machine for a few of my quilts. This makes the piece more personal.

  226. Linda Colwell says:

    So far I’ve done them at home. I would love to send some out at some point, when I can afford to.

  227. Sharon Crawley says:

    Haven’t made a quilt yet but planning to after Xmas, and I would be finnishing it of myself.

  228. I finish them at home on my own with simple quilting.

  229. Cherri Kincaid says:

    I finish all of my quilts at home.

  230. I have sent my quilts out and finish with the binding and label. I have hopes to add machine
    quilting my own quilts this year. Happy New Year.

  231. Cindy McIlvain says:

    I finish them myself.

  232. I finish my quilts on my domestic machine.

  233. I have only made one quilt and I finished it by quilting in the ditch.

  234. I finish mine at home but I’ve been considering sending one out to see how I like it. I wish I could have a long arm at home! I have plans for the playroom once the kids are grown!

  235. Bethni Lee says:

    Has to go to a longer specialist. I haven’t had the nerve to try my own!!

  236. I usually finish them at home but I did rent a longarm once.

  237. I have never finished a quilt but I’m pretty sure I will be letting my checkbook finish any quilts larger than baby size.

  238. Vicki Formby says:

    At home.

  239. I have sent quilts to a a longarm quilter and have finished them at home, too. Size is often the determining factor.

  240. Finish at home

  241. It all depends on the size. If I can quilt it on my domestic machine, I finish it. But a large quilt will need to be sent out to be quilted. Of course the labeling and binding is all done by me.

  242. Donna Stellway says:

    I quilt the myself. The first one I quilted on an old Bernina sewing machine. Then my husband bought me an industrial machine that has made it so much easier to quilt. One of these days maybe I’ll have enough space to get a long arm machine!

  243. Quilt at home.

  244. Wendy A Engelmann says:

    I send them of to a long arm shop or my friend does it when she has time.

  245. Linda Collum says:

    I do my own quilting and binding on my Pfaff machine.

  246. Most of my quilts travel off to be quilted. A few I have completed myself.

  247. I hand quilt my quilts initially because the cost prevented me from using a long armer. Once I started, I found it so relaxing and enjoyable that I can’t imagine not doing it!

  248. I usually quilt my quilts on my domestic machine.

  249. Darlene Thompson says:

    I’ve done both – the first quilt I had done on a long arm at the Quilt Shop but the second one I did at home.

  250. I’ve always done my own but it’s nice to know there is someone who can also help

  251. Carrie Pippins says:

    I do both.

  252. Tina Butler says:

    At home.

  253. Sadly I don’t do any fancy quilting on my quilts just stitching the ditch or other straight lines

  254. I DIY FMQ on my DSM. (I have more tops than quilts, of course.)

  255. Jennifer Boone says:

    Minis are great ways to decorate and fun gifts!

    I have only sent one quilt to the long arm as it was commissioned quilt and king size.

  256. I send mine to a quilter. I tried to do some at home but it’s too hard
    On my shoulders.

  257. I finish my own.

  258. Lynn Proger thomas says:

    I do my own quilting

  259. I have always done hand quilting. I am going to venture into machine quilting soon. Trying to get up the nerve. LOL

  260. At home always

  261. I finish them with my little machine… or by hand 🙂

  262. Judy Prescott says:

    I quilt most of my quilts myself but occasionally when I have a time crunch I will send one out to my local longarmer.

  263. Anita Pankake says:

    So far, I have finished everything at home. However, we a getting more and more options in the area for long arm quilting.

  264. Leah Eversole says:

    I do them myself

  265. Sherry Jurykovsky says:

    I only finish things at home. Or maybe at my sister’s. I can’t afford to pay someone to do it for me.

  266. lindyloufromoz says:

    I hope to add this skill to my repertoire in the new year!
