    “If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time creating with local quilters, I’d travel to Paducka because Caryl Fallart has her quilting studio / getaway there!

  2. Sandy E says:

    1. I’d travel to Wales, to see what the Welsh are doing with Wholecloth quilts, & to show them why Hobbs is the batting to use. As a handquilter, Hobbs is my #1 choice, Heirloom 80/20 for most of my quilts, Thermore for flannels & wallhangings. “Hobbs batting: it’s from Texas, you know.”

  3. Linda says:

    I’d travel to the west coast of Canada, for a cruise along the coast to Alaska, to enjoy their amazing beauty. The cruise would be a quilting cruise, of course!

  4. Cindy King says:

    “If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time creating with local quilters,
    I’d travel to Newfoundland because I have agreed to make a Newfoundland quilt for a friend and would appreciate interacting with quilters in that region.”

  5. “If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time creating with local quilters, I’d travel to Ireland because I love Celtic Knots and would like to make a quilt displaying knots made of binding appliqué some day.”

  6. Guinevere Cassidy says:

    If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting
    and to spend time creating with local quilters,
    I’d travel to Paducah, KY because it is Quilt City USA, full of quilty culture, shops, and the museum.

  7. Laura B says:

    If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time creating with local quilters, I’d travel to Ireland because it’s part of my cultural heritage, and the lack of local quilt shops would have to make them especially creative.

  8. If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time with local quilters, I’d travel to Ireland because I could blend my heritage (I’m Irish) with my love of quilting. In addition, the history of quilting is so strong in Great Britain and Ireland that it is something I have always wanted to study.

  9. Jenny gibson says:

    I’d travel to America to learn quilting from the masters

    “If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting

  12. Sandy says:

    I’d travel to Ireland, because what’s better than sewing with love and being able to trace your family roots all in one trip!!! Great give away, thanks for the chance to win!!!

  13. I would love to go to Quilt Market in Missouri, this spring, because I’d love to meet the makers of the quilting industry, and shopping at Missouri Star Quilt Co would be epic!

  14. Sharon Kahle says:

    I would go to Germany to meet my Facebook friend, Gabi. She has a quilt shop there.

  15. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    “If I could travel anywhere in the world to learn about quilting and to spend time creating with local quilters, I’d travel to Great Britain (England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales) because my ancestors are all from there and I’d like a first-hand look at quilting in these countries.”

  17. Joanne Nikkila says:

    I would go to Japan. There are so many beautiful quilts here with exquisite workmanship. That said, I have been to the Paducah quilt shows and Chicago international quilt shows many times, I’m so in awe of the beautiful workmanship by Japanese quilters. They are perfectionists and unique. I am also in awe that they actually are quilting in that far away land.

  18. Cathy says:

    I would travel to Hamilton, MO. because I love Jenni Doan and would love to meet her and go to MSQC!

  19. I would travel to Japan, all the quilters are incredible. To learn their hand piecing, applique, and hand quilting techniques. Oh to shop the silks, linens and cottons.
