On Cloud Nine!…and a Give Away!

…that’s how I’m feeling the past few days since the files for “Feather Adventures! Volume I” has gone to the printer.  It’s official; it’s in the can and my feathers book is being printed as we speak!  This has been a monster of a job to put together but worth every second of toil and sweat because, if I do say so myself, the book is FABULOUS, simply FABULOUS!! Do you think I’m a bit biased?!  Yup!  I am, but I am over the top excited!  I don’t have an exact date yet, but expect both the Feathers book and the Hyperquilting book to be released simultaneously and I’m guessing it will be 3-4 weeks from now, possibly a bit sooner and possibly a bit later.  I can’t wait!

On top of that, it’s sunny and warming up and spring is really here!  Spring is my favorite time of year as it’s just so great to see the world around you spring back to life…

I feel like I’m exploding with excitement, just like all the colors in this quilt!  To celebrate, I’m offering a give away of one copy of the Feathers book and one copy of the Hyperquilting book!  To be eligible, all you need to do is to leave a comment on this post telling me why you’d like a copy of whichever one interests you, and I’ll draw the winner the day the books debut!  If you’re interested in a copy of both books,  please post 2 separate comments, as I’m going to divide these comments into 2 subsections when I do the final drawing. And now that I have a bit of time on my hands, I’m going to the sewing room to whip up something FUN!


  1. Elaine Williams Says:

    I love feathers, flowers, etc and your work, so I would love a copy of one of your books. The hyperquilting always looks fun. Would love to try it.

  2. Anya Says:

    Oh, no, you’re going to make me choose? I’d love either one, but I suppose the Hyperquilting one would be my first choice. I’d love to win because I want to be you when I grow up! Thanks for the chance.

  3. Michelle Wyman Says:

    Wow! How exciting to have your books almost here!! I would love to win the feather book as I am a longarm professional and feathers are most of my customer’s number one favorite motif! We always need to learn some new and fresh ways to quilt feathers and your style is very inspiring to me!

  6. Pam Says:

    I would like Feathers because you taught me feathers when all of the other feather teachers failed. I won a second place in our local quilt show with one sided feathers with a true spine on my lone star quilt. Of course there were many more feathers in the additional borders. All I had to do was draw the initial curves. FANtastic.

  56. Elaine Adair Says:

    Me again – well, to tell you the truth, I’d also like the Hyperquilting! Hey, now that I know how to sew ‘lines’ I gotta dress them up a bit – have to use up all the threads I’ve been buying! Thanks for all you inspiration – I spread YOUR words at Quilt Guild, every chance I get!

  61. Jean Overmeyer Says:

    I think that your hyperquilting book would be fantastic! I’ve enjoyed your DVDs and your classes…I almost always include some machine trapunto in my quilts for texture after taking one of your classes and being a regular reader of your blog. I really enjoy learning new techniques and ideas to add a little more zip to my quilts. Thanks!

  62. Virginia Says:

    I’ve gained such knowledge from your site. Being granted the honor of owning your book Feather Adventures! Volume I would certainly be a feather in my cap. I’m still working on improving my free motion feathers and this book would certainly help me with that process. Quilt on.

  63. Virginia Says:

    Hyperquilting!!! Love the descriptions you use to describe your techniques and shapes. I want to be a Hyper just like you. So, the book is necessary to help me learn more about the process. I want to improve all my machine quilting skills – all on my domestic sewing machine.

  64. Kathy Says:

    Oh I so want to take a class from you! Your work is beautiful.

  65. Jillian Says:

    I think, I am your biggest fan in Austria for feathers and vines. It is so much fun, even though my back hurts of hours on my sewing machine.

    I’ll settle for either book but would love the feather book as a first choice. Your work is quite inspirational. I’ll be purchasing them both if I don’t win one. Thank you!

  70. Wendy Swears Says:

    Hi Patsy – I have to say I just feel happier when I see the wonderful saturated colors you use. I would love to have your new feathers book as I have been machine quilting only pantographs full time for 17 years. I need help to get out of this rut! Thank you !!

  71. Cathy Says:

    I am passionate about machine quilting and execute it on my domestic sewing machine. I love feathers and am always looking for new techniques and inspiration like I find on your website. Congrats on the both new books. I’d love to own a copy of your Feather Adventures, Volume I.
    Thank you!

  72. Brigitte Haydel Says:

    Patsy…..I would love the own the Hyperquilting Book because I am a big fan of all of your ideas. I own most all of your DVD’s and have learned so much from them.

    I hate to post twice but if I can’t win one book, I will try for the other too, which is the book on Feathers. I am a big fan of you and love all of the DVD’s that I own. Good Luck on the sale of all of the new products.

  74. Sequoia Says:

    I think that I would like the hyperquilting the best. I’ve been following your blog and I love the idea of adding more to a motif to really make it sing! I’m new to my mid-arm, but optimistic that I will continue to improve! Thanks for giving us a chance to win one of your books.

  75. Mary-Kayu Colman Says:

    I love feathers and have tried using your quilting method and think it’s great. I have yet to try hyper-quilting but love to try it out one day.

    I also would like to try your hyperquilting method. I love the way your quilts look.

  77. Marcia W. Says:

    I am a beginning quilter so your new book on feathers (written by an expert:)) would be a good place to begin learning. The photos of your quilts are awesome.

  78. Marcia W. Says:

    Also, would enjoy an autographed copy of the Hyperquilting book. Though know will never have your skill, it certainly would help me learn.

  79. Jane Says:

    I need to learn how to do feathers correctly. I’ve never seen any feathers that look like the ones I make.

  80. Helen in the UK Says:

    I would LOVE a copy of your feathers book. I’ve got all your fast and free DVDs and have learnt so much. Feathers is next on my list to try (hopefully for my birthday). I LOVE feathers, but haven’t yet had the courage to try doing them myself :)

  86. Thearica Burroughs Says:

I did your hyper quilting feathers on a customer quilt last spring and we won Viewer’s Choice and I also got the Best Longarm Quilting Ribbon!!

Gave me hope that I could learn to do that :) After three years of working on a Baltimore Album quilt, I’m ready to move on to contemporary applique and quilting. Your designs inspire, and your enthusiasm is infectious even on your blog! Thanks for keeping me interested in my own quilting journey!

  112. Carol McNab Says:

  125. Stitchinscience Says:

    I would love the hyperquilting book. I am only just realising the amazing effects that quilting can have on an otherwise ordinary piece of work. Your book will give me lots of inspiration.

  126. Penny Jones Says:

    I would love to win either book. I’m just starting trying to learn to do my own quilting and can you any and all help.


  127. Pat Hammeke Says:

    I have been making quilts since l972! Each year I seem to spend more time quilting as the our children grew and left home. Most of my quilts go to charities as donations. I love feathers–your dvds (I have most of them) making learning really easy. Thus I am so excited for a book on feathers, esp when I don’t want to put out the dvd player. Please ount me in for a free feathers book.

  128. Pat Hammeke Says:

    I love your designs/quilting motifs and the easy way that you explain the steps to creating the hyper quilting! I am a longarm quilter and have taken many classes but your dvds are better for my learning style. If I forget something, I can always go back for a refresher. Count me in for a drawing of your new book on hyper quilting.


  129. annie Says:

    Hyper quilting looks like an interesting book. I’d love both, so I am going to enter twice mentioning each book.

  130. annie Says:

    The Feathers book looks like an interesting book. I’d love both, so I am going to enter twice mentioning each book. I have been studying feathering and would love to see your unique way of doing it.

  131. Katye Harris Says:

    I would love a copy of your feathers book…reading your book on easy free-motion feathers is what finally convinced me “I can do this!” and has kept me trying ever since. I am not as proficient as I would like to be, but definitely making progress thanks to your wonderful and easy style!

  132. carol sloan Says:

    Weel, I could give you several reasons why I’d like to own both of your books, but the main one is because you are one of my special frineds and I can’t wait to see the books!!!

  133. carol sloan Says:

    Again, put me in the draw for both os them. I can’t wait to see your hard work- AND learn to quilt the Patsy Feathers!

    I am a brand new free motion quilter, I watched your video on The Quilt Show, and I think you do fantastic work. Of all the designs I have seen I love the Feathers. I have my tables set up in the corner of my room with my 1941 Singer 20l ready to start practicing free motion. I would love to win your new book and learn from you.

  135. Linda Davis Says:

    I would also love to be included in the drawing for your Feathers video. I love to watch you do free motion.

  136. Emma Says:

    I would love to win the Feathers book; I am just starting to get adventurous with feathers, but really need a bit of guidance.

  137. Emma Says:

    I would also love the hyperquilting book; I have been admiring the wonderful work you do and think it would be a great skill to add to my quilting. Congratulations!

  138. Jill Says:

    The feathers book would be my choice! I’m not experienced in machine quilting, having just begun a few months ago, and classes here in France are very hard to come by, so your book would be a great help!

  139. Dorothy B Says:

    Both of your books sound great. I’d love to be entered into the draw for the feathers book – it sounds like a more appropriate starting point!

  140. Rosalind Says:

    I would so love a copy of your book. A DVD would be great but nothing beats curling up with a book and making plans!

  141. donna adams Says:

    Hi Patsy! I adore feathers and you are my feather hero! I also join the ranks of the feather-lovers who would be thrilled to get a copy of either one of your books! Count me in!

  142. donna adams Says:

    Hi Patsy,
    Congratulations on the upcoming release of the books! You must be thrilled. I know I can’t wait to see them! As I CRAVE inspiration, I would (also)like to enter the drawing for the hyper-quilting book. How exciting!

  143. Kathy Says:


    Congratulations on the release of your two books. I am just beginning my machine quilting, and your site has been invaluable to me. I have downloaded your free patterns, and have been practicing the designs. For Christmas, I made my daughter a wall hanging from a Cinderella panel, and I did hyperquilting on that. It is not perfect, but it was fun. I decided to try it as I had read about it on your site. Either book would be fun. I love feathers and I want to do more with hyperquilting.

  144. Helen Newton Says:

    Wow, I’d be delighted to have either one of your books. My goal in life at the moment is to master the feather technique so would be thrilled to have your feather book.

  145. Cat Thompson Says:

    Patsy, I just found you through The Quilt Show. What GREAT videos! Although I’ve been doing free motion work for several years, you taught me PLENTY! I’d just love a copy of your feathers book. Congratulations on the release of your two books. Apparently, you’re very prolific. With all those gorgeous quilts you churn out, don’t know where you get the time to be an author, too. But I’m darned glad you are!

  146. patty Says:

  150. Pam Butler Says:

    I would love either book feathers or hyper. I buy books all the time.
    I have been wishing for your DVDs but haven’t purchased because I just don’t watch DVDs (TV is my husband’s domain). So, he wouldn’t let me watch even if I did buy them. I’m so excited that you are doing some books!!!

  151. Pam Butler Says:

    Here’s a 2nd comment so I can be included in both!!

    At first I didn’t think I’d be interested in the Hyperquilting book but the more I played and thought about it I thought, Yes, why not? So throw my name in the pot for that book also.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  161. Laura Rosenwald Says:

    I just found your web site/blog and am mesmerized! WONDERFUL!!! thank you so much for making machine quilting an obtainalbe option for quilters.
    I would LOVE to have either of the books and so I am going to makes two comments to be included in each drawing.

  162. Laura Rosenwald Says:

  163. Joyce Frei Says:

    I’m a fan of your website and check it often. I would love to win a copy of your Feathers book. I just finished quilting a Turning Twenty Again quilt using feather wreaths in the big squares and then filling in around them with the feather explosion pattern. I really enjoyed the speed and ease of these feathers and the fabulous results. I love looking at the back side of the quilt and just enjoying all those lovely, undulating feathers that sprawl so gracefully across my quilt. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge in such a fun, generous, and gracious manner.

  164. Judy H. Says:

    To feather or not to feather,
    Now that is the question,
    Herein lies a suggestion,
    Perusing Feather Adventures,
    Might solve my predicament.

  165. Judy H. Says:

    Emails, you get screens and screens of emails..
    Dear Patsy…would you be so kind…
    to hear my request…
    So i too can learn…what you do the best…
    Is the one I’d request…

  166. Mary Says:

    I am very inpressed with your work. The colors of your fabric are fantastic and then you do your quilting on it and it seems to just glow. I would love to learn your techniques from the Hyperquilding book. Your work is wonderful!

  167. Barbara Says:
