congratulations!I wish I knew how to bind an octagonal quilt, but I think rectangular ones are the best for snuggling on the couch or sleeping under. I like making lap sizes. I HATE making bed quilts!
Good for you!!I like rectangle. For some reason I never make a square quilt. And I like larger lap quilts. I don't like making lap quilts that are too small to curl under but I don't like making bed quilts that are too big to easily quilt.
Woohoo! I like a rectangle throw quilt on each chair--a must in Minnesota!
Hi, Doug! Wow, I like that quilt shown in the magazine! My favourite size/shape is square toppers (though I am really getting into doll size quilts LOL). Lap size is good, too.Gerda
I am most partial to rectangular quilts and make mostly throws -- there aren't enough beds for bigger quilts, but a throw can go anywhere! Your quilt designs are fabulous, and how wonderful that you've found something you enjoy and excel at when you're so young! I wish you much success in the future.
Nice job Doug! Celine
i really like rectangles and love to just bind without putting on a border. congrats on getting in the mag!!
Just a plain ole rectangle for me...I've tried the octagon and had a hard time doing the binding on the different angles. I like crib size quilts, just because you can try harder techniques on them and still finish in reasonable time before getting discouraged with the difficulty level. Ha.
I like rectangle quilts. Congratulations for being featured in Quiltmaker!
Cool - can't wait to see it!My favorite are rectangle quilts slightly smaller than twin - I love to cuddle up under one and sew in the evening.
I like rectangular lap/twin size quilts. I really like scalloped edges on my quilts too. If I'm making a wallhanging, I want it square.
Don't enter me in your giveaway DougI just wanted to stop by and congratulate you on being published in Quiltmaker Mag. and wish you continued success.I'm part of the Scrap Squad interpreting your pattern.Happy sewing
Congrats on the publication! (That's how I found you, but I like the patterns I've seen so far.) I never really thought about what shape of quilt I like best - I just decide what to make based on it's intended use. Rectangles are usually needed for beds, but squares are nice for throw quilts. And sometimes it depends on the pattern what will work. As for size, I don't really have a favorite there, either, but I refuse to make a quilt too small to be used. Though I've made some doll quilts, I usually decide something queen-sized is a good idea (until halfway through!). Thanks so much for a chance to win!
Hi Doug, I'm one of the Scrap Squad members and found your blog by way of Dionne. I certainly enjoyed using your pattern, not once, but twice already. Great job!
I really like making lap-sized quilts, because they don't have to "go" with anyone's living room colors as it just goes on their lap. I make them rectangular, but like square-ish tabletoppers when I make them. I think the Rhapsody in Bloom would look great in scrappy colors, don't you? Best of luck!

Hi Doug- Most of the quilt projects I make are rectangular and quite often are queen-sized quilts. But I have been telling myself that I can get more projects completed if I would choose smaller sized projects! lolBTW- I sometime catch a glimpse of your quilts, Doug, because your LA quilter is also my LA quilter! :^)Sorry- I had wanted to add more to my original post (about our shared LA friend) and accidently deleted it...so here it is again!
I am such a traditional newbie: I like it queen, rectangular. I might venture out and try new things soon.thanks for hosting this!
This is awesome - congratulations!! I prefer to make lap quilts, they don't take as long to make especially because I hand quilt! As for shapes, I like rectangular.
Beautiful quilt! I like making rectangular throw sizes. Keep up the wonderful quilting!
I don't quilt myself but my favorite size would be twin. Thanks
Hi Doug- I am part of the scrap squad and recently finished your Rhapsody in Bloom pattern using 1800 reproduction purples. Congratulations on a super design! I definitely like to make a octagon size for a throw , but my favorite is making a king size to enjoy sleeping under. All the best to you Doug for many more great designs. Linda
I'm sorry I missed the contest, but I just got my issue of Quiltmaker today and found the "Rhapsody" quilt. I love, love, love this quilt! I also visited your website, and your patterns are wonderful! Can't wait to see more!
I'm also sorry I missed the contest, but congrat's on the "Rhapsody" quilt pattern in the magazine, and being a beginner quilter, I wouldn't really have a favourite one yet...but Lap sized quilts, either square or rectangular, but easy to make for beginners would be good! Hugs Naomi
Hi Doug! Imagine my surprise when I saw "Rhapsody in Bloom" and realized you used my new fabric line "Ella" that I designed for Red Rooster. Thanks for using the fabric - and for making such a beautiful quilt with it!
