Free Fabric Friday

on March 19 | in Contests & Giveaways, Products | by | with 1,083 Comments

We’re always telling you about what’s new in the shop, but many of our fabrics are tried and true.  We try to keep a great assortment of fabric around all the time, and that means that we often restock many of our favorites.   Returning to the shop this week:

Darla by Tanya Whelan

West Hill by Heather Ross (at a special price!)

Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner

Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt (also at a special price!)

Mendocino by Heather Ross

Speaking of Heather Ross, we have an incredible give-away for you this week!  Surely you’ve been hearing about Heather’s new book, Weekend Sewing: More than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching.  We’ve seen lots of amazing projects on many of our favorite blogs that were created using the book and the pull-out pattern pieces, and the Weekend Sewing photo pool is quickly filling up with fabulous images of items sewn from the book’s plethora of ideas. 

Heather will be joining us next month for a little Q&A to talk about the book and her new line of fabric.  In the meantime, you simply must take a look at Weekend Sewing.   This Monday we’ll select one person to win a copy of the book and four people to win one yard of fabric from the shop.  To enter, tell us about your all-time favorite fabric collection or single print–something you’re hoarding, coveting, cherishing or lamenting (because it’s gone.)   Have a great weekend (and do some sewing!)

  1. I am in love with “Folklorica” by Moda right now … kinda coveting it as I plan what to do with the cherished pieces I’ve found! Would love to be picked for any of your gorgeous fabrics!! Thank You!

  2. gravey pit says:

    I never in a million years would’ve had the idea to look at things this way. This is going to make my day a bunch easier.

  3. Natalie says:

    I have been saving my Amy Butler Midwest Modern prints. I have every pattern in every colorway thanks to some awesome sales but I just can’t seem to cut any of it. I dream about how cute a quilt would look, or a little girl’s dress, a purse, a necklace…but it’s so pretty folded up and stacked. I know I have to bite the bullet and start snipping. Maybe winning this book will be just the thing to get me started! Pick me! :)

  4. Regina says:

    I am super new to quilting just in the last few months and I have all ready bought a few of heather Ross prints, and have yet to cut them up. They are too pretty, what a pity I must find the courage soon. I love her Mendocino Line the Octopus is my favorite, and i really love the West hill.
    Far Far away is so yummy, but I have yet to purchase any, to add to my uncut collection. lol

  5. Gwendolyn Clark says:

    The Rosey Dots in the Darla collection are just too cute.

  6. Donna says:

    Ummm, I think I would have to say that Farmer’s Market is my favorite so far. My daughter in law made the cutest bag and I used a bundle of Fat Quarters I bought in San Antonio for a stacked coin crib quilt.

  7. Krista says:

    I have been hoarding Joel Dewberry’s Almond Birds. I haven’t cut into it yet. I’m waiting for the perfect project…

  8. Michele Kirk says:

    Right now I’m loving AH Darla line…it’s so yummy!! But my all time favorite is Heather Baileys Pop Garden! I just can’t bring myself to cut into it.

  9. Melanie Senko says:

    Anything vintage. I made a quilt for my sister-in-law’s wedding and almost couldn’t give it to her. Beautiful vintage floral prints, soft roses and yellows, and peachy and greens… I had to go out and buy the same fabric for myself (Just haven’t decided what to make).

  10. Lisa says:

    The Heather Ross Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries has to be the best!

  11. patty c. says:

    I LOVE the West Hill collection. I take my neices and nephews on walks to the horse farm that is down the road to watch the horses graze. My niece would love this too!

  12. MaryAnne says:

    Oh fabric, where do I start. Currently I am loving POP by Heather Bailey. But, I also adore all the Japanese fabrics…so fun so lovely. Of course Heather Ross’ fabric is divinely soft and I am so sad I no longer own any of her fish fabric…so cute.

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I love anything by Heather Ross! I’m planning on getting some ‘swim class’ fabric — I just have to pick the color and find the perfect project for it.

  14. Etta says:

    Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden. It’s got all my happy colors!!!

  15. Andrea says:

    The Journey, Adrienne Yorinks for Lyndhurst Studios. I bought it at a major fabric store (not a quilt one) and I just love the mod appeal of the black, cream and silvery grey. Haven’t got a clue what to make with it but when I do, it will be fantabulous.

  16. Jocelyn says:

    My fav would have to be Prairie Paisley. I have two charm packs and some fabric to make a quilt that is yet to be chosen.

    Please enter me in your giveaway. Would love to take a glimpse at the book.

  17. Karen C says:

    Prints Charming from Australia would have to be one of my all time favourite fabric designers, they have a heart print, the name of which i’m not sure but it’s just hearts hearts hearts and it is so bright and beautiful, I have been stockpiling it and am now starting to use it for making treasures for our new house.

  18. michelle says:

    i love vintage in light colors!

  19. Annie says:

    I’m a sucker for anything from American Jane–I love the retro feel, and I LOVE the rulers that make it into the collections. I’m also in love with Heather Ross’s West Hill and Lightning Bugs collections. I ordered some of the West Hill prints online a while back, and when I felt the fabric, I knew I needed more–I’ve been trying to track down anything from those collections that doesn’t break the bank (sadly, no goldfish, VW busses, or gnomes…), and my second-ever quilt top will be exclusively from these fabrics.

  20. JD says:

    My favorite print was one I had found in a fabric shop that was covered with flowers and bees. y daughter had a Spring convert coming up and I used the fabric to make her a darling dress.
    My baforite fabric though is silk. I love using it in my designs.

  21. Sher says:

    I love Heather Baily’s Pop Garden & bijoux. I’m so ready for Spring and any ‘happy’ fabric helps me get there!

  22. Terri says:

    I love Flowers and Dots Pink by Heather Ross. : )

  23. larici says:

    It is very hard to pick just one favorite. I really like the Heather Ross Gnome and Buses fabric, specially because it is impossible to find nowadays.

  24. Amorette says:

    love the kona fabric collection- japanese inspired prints with a touch of gold to accent the bold colors- makes a great handbag, like the buttercup pattern!

  25. Sora says:

    Green, Green, Green! I love the color green so of course anything green is MY favorite. I like cute fabrics with little flowers on them.

  26. Jenny L says:

    Two Young Street – I love the retro designs with bright happy colors. I searched for months to piece the perfect prints together for my son’s crib bedding.

  27. Terri says:

    I have a piece of Jinny Beyer fabric paired with a matching solid in a beautiful rich teal green. I bought it to make a bag, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to cut it yet. LOL

  28. claudia says:

    I wish I could have some of the Amy Butler fabric that is on the cover of the Nappy Bag pattern! I don’t know what it is called, but that bag is what sucked me in to the world of Amy Butler a few years back!

  29. Jamie says:

    Right now I am in love with Anna Maria’s new line! It’s so beautiful… I really like the projects in this book that I have been seeing on blogs too!

  30. Hilary says:

    Echnino — any Etsuko Furuya. So amazing it makes me sigh with delight every time I see any of it.

  31. Annie says:

    I have been hording a piece of Anna Maria Horner’s Bohemian Green. I’ve cut into it once but I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it again! Another one of my favorite fabric lines is Park Slope. :)

  32. Kim Pebley says:

    I love all my batiks.. I know they make fabulous projects.. but, it’s so hard to cut them. Maybe I could find a project in the book to use some of them with. Thank you for sharing this giveaway!

  33. bec says:

    i have been loving my folklore by lecien? i believe? anyway, i love the teal and the red. and the birds. oh and the squirrels!

  34. Pam says:

    Love the fabric and would love the book!

  35. shelley says:

    Absolutely love the fabric with the horses and fabric with the fish…they would both look great in my little boys room as pillows…

  36. Sara says:

    I love that you have those Heather Ross prints back and at a fab price! And of course I love the Farmer’s Market collection.

  37. Jessica says:

    I have to say, I think that green “handwriting” fabric sold out before I even got back into sewing but I’ve been looking for it ever since! Also this really great Japanese tree fabric in their blue/green colorway, I have some in another colorway but it just isn’t the same! At the time, though, I really couldn’t justify $17.95/yard to myself. Now … maybe I could justify a quarter of a yard.

  38. Dawn says:

    I used to have a cherry tree print in primary colors- it was a little print with little George Washingtons. I have a tremendous longing for it now for a quilt project!

  39. Nicole says:

    I absolutely love..love…love Heather Bailey’s fresh cut line. It’s so spring like and happy!

  40. Sheila says:

    I’m hoarding some silk pieces that I got from my mom’s stash long ago and one yard of vintage mushroomy goodness from my grandmother. I can’t bear to use them, because I’m afraid of using them up and then they’ll be gone! At least from the comments I can see that I’m not the only one hoarding fabric!

  41. Colleen says:

    I admit to hoarding my fabric, too. The one that I prize the most at the moment is a Japanese cotton/linen blend with a light blue background and a simple pattern of dark waves and birds.

  42. Becky says:

    love the unicorn prints by Kokka, coming out of Japan. Baby projects\ material, no doubt!

  43. Rose Stapp says:

    I love any of the vintage print as well as the feedsack prints. I have always been very ill with Fabric Fever, therefore my shop is stacked to the ceiling with fabric, trims, ribbons, and old buttons. I adore all of Rachel Ashwell print and all other floral prints. I also love the retro prints, and of course I can not leave out chenille. And oh yea, I love anything with pink in it and soft cotton fabric. This is my first visit to your site, its wonderful! I would love to put my name in for the give-away. I haven’t even seen this book before, I bet it is full of neat ideas.. Hugs, Rosemarie

  44. Katie says:

    I love West Hill in green for my horse-loving daughter.

  45. caroline says:

    Hope it’s not too late! Love the fabrics, and would love the book!

  46. Katie says:

    I love the mendocina prints, but probably my favorite print ever was little white cherry outlines with polka dots on a robins egg blue background. And every few cherries is bright red. I have no idea who made it, but I bought several yards when I saw it.

    And I’m dying to read that book!

  47. Amy says:

    I love anything polka dot. My favorite non polka dot right now is Heidi Grace’s Midnight Kisses.

  48. Carrie P. says:

    I look forward to the q and a session. I just bought a toile, light blue with a tea set on it and I am keeping it for something special. Not sure what. I like a new Moda fabric that just came out called MOMO.

  49. Sara says:

    Oh, please giveaway gods, show me some love!
    I have been coveting Heather Ross everything for a long time. I just received some lightning bugs dots in the mail this past week to go with my bikes and VW vans. I doubt I’ll ever cut into it. It’s so soft and thick and wonderful. Needless to say, I really, really, really want Heather’s book…like, REALLY would love to have it!

  50. joy l. says:

    I would LOVE this book! Right now my favorite fabric collection is Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room. I love birdie fabric and the fabric combos in this collection are incredible!

  51. Jill says:

    I’m more captivated by individual prints than colors – though I am in love with Anna Maria Horner’s Chocolate Lollipop and Heather Bailey’s Freshcut. I like prints that make me smile and wish my stash was stocked with more of those instead of my current “what in the world am I going to do with this?” selection. All in good time.

  52. anja says:

    have lots of fabrics i’m hoarding–couldn’t really pick a favorite!

  53. MaryAnn says:

    Wow, you sure are getting a good response to this! I love Katie Jump Rope, Mendocino by Heather ross and Kaffee Fassett fabrics……

  54. Laurel says:

    I’ve been hoarding my Joel Dewberry Ginseng. Not because it’s out of print, but because it’s so darn expensive. Only super special projects can get me to break it out.

  55. M Radtke says:

    I covet the Modern Flora Collection – I need to get some before its gone.

  56. Rae says:

    Oh my fave is so easily Amy Butler’s Gypsy Caravan from way back in the day…I’m still hoarding bits of that hoping it will replace my 401K. (:

  57. amy says:

    choose me! choose me!

  58. Julie says:

    I love the Micheal Miller fabrics, especially the cocoa turquoise prints!!

  59. My favorites change all the time. Right now I am into all things bright :)

  60. Dianne says:

    My all-time favorite fabric is a print my mother made into a tiny curtain she never used. She made the curtain back in the 1960′s, and it’s very kitschy as one would expect from that era, with spice bottles, onions, general kitchen stuff on it. I wish she had kept all of that fabric, but at least I have this tiny curtain to hold on to.

  61. Kelli says:

    How did you know that I was coveting this book? I almost bought it yesterday on Amazon!! It is my number one item on my wishlist.
    I can’t say I have an absolute favorite fabric or line, but it seems like every line Moda comes out with could be my favorite…high rankings go to Nouveau, Swanky, Aviary, etc., etc. And I couldn’t forget Darla by Tanya Whelan, or Daisy Chain by Amy Butler.
    Do I really have to choose just one????

  62. heather m. says:

    I am still trying to track down even just a fat quarter of the brown multi dot print from Timeless Treasures ‘Calypso’ collection. Still no luck.

  63. Marilyn says:

    My favorite fabric is a daisy print on a brown background…I picked up 7 or 8 yards about 10 years ago and I use it sparingly here and there for fun projects. I have just enough left to make a cute summer shirt for my daughter so as happy as the shirt will make me, it will be sad to say goodbye to such a good friend. Guess I need to go fabric shopping, heh?

  64. Jeanine says:

    I’m a fan of Japanese fabrics!

  65. Betsy says:

    I’m hoarding several children’s prints… flannels and cottons from various sources, designers.

  66. Pam says:

    I just love any collection by Kaffe Fassett, the vibrant colors are gorgeous!

  67. Gabrien says:

    My all time favs change with the weather. Sometimes it’s a pink solid, sometimes it’s an orange dot. My favorite designer is Anna Maria Horner!

  68. Beth says:

    Love, love Moda’s Shangri La Fabrics!! I could sew with these forever.

  69. Kerri says:

    Heather Ross’s ultrasoft lightning bugs line and Denyse Schmidt’s flea market fancy. I should have sold my car & bought hundreds of bolts. Sob! Heather, we will miss you….

  70. Valerie says:

    Right now my favorite collection is by M’Liss. I don’t recall the name of the collection but it’s beatiful floral prints in dark blue. I’m currently making a king size quilt from this collection.

  71. Meg says:

    I still love the standard polka dot!!!

  72. Kathleen says:

    I have this tea time print that I got as a end bolt piece. I absolutely LOVE it. Little tea cups, spoons, witty sayings. Every so often I spread it out, thinking I should make something out of it, but then I decide whatever I was thinking of making just isn’t special enough for this piece of fabric.

    Someday…

  73. Lili says:

    Beginner in sewing, I regularly visit your sites(blog and shop) to drool with envy over all those beautiful fabrics plenty of colours ! However, I dare not even take the first step, afraid to cut theses fabulous fabrics, to deceive me … need a little time to be more sure of myself and dare! My favourite, hard to choose … The fabrics of Amy Butler , or those of Heather Ross like a lot of people with habit to sew, but also those of Jay McCarrol with these coloured fungi (Woodland Wonderlan Collection), or those of Jackie Clark with these small owls (Little Man and Me, Too Collection), ideal to sew for children in a weekend !!
    Lili

  74. Regina says:

    I love the Moda Five Funky Monkey’s fabric with the bandaids and medicine bottles on it – great for pillow cases, tissue cases, and covers for rice bag heating pads – I am stretching what little I have left, and am always on the lookout for more that people may be selling online…

  75. Zegi says:

    My favorite fabric was a line from Amy Butler – I think it was called Belle? It was one of her earlier collections and I adore it. I have had a collection of fat quarters from it for probably three years and I am terrified to cut into it! Also I really loved Moda’s Shangri La collection.

  76. Breanna says:

    I don’t keep a very big stash of fabric although I would like to. My favorite prints always seem to be Amy Butler Fabrics.

  77. Elena says:

    Hi all!!!
    I can’t choose one favourite fabric or collection, is so dificult! But here you have a little selection of my favourites:
    Lightning bugs (especially the gnoms, dogs, and little fish), Mendocino (mermaids) byHeather Ross
    Sugar snap by Melissa Averinos (I like so much the brilliant colors perfect for this spring and summer)
    Freshcut by heather bailey and good folks by ana maria horner.
    I’m starting to sew so I have only a few fabrics. Thanks for this chance!!
    Elena.

  78. Sam says:

    I am hoarding a yard of Heather Ross’ gnome print fabric. I just love it so much, I haven’t brought myself to cut into it yet. Also, I think I cold use a bit of Heather Bailey’s Freshcut in every project I do! So lovely.

  79. Susan Lanthrip says:

    I am new to sewing, but I seem to love all things Amy Butler.

  80. Valerie S says:

    I love Farmers Market by Sandi Henderson. The apple print is one of my favs. The book looks great!

  81. I covet the Michael Miller ‘Spring Showers’ print. Happy pale yellow with lovely retro girls looking so happy in the rain! It’s so hard to find now so I buy any piece I can find!!

  82. Pam M. says:

    I love the Mendocino fabric.
    This book looks like it will be great!

  83. mary anne says:

    I love and miss the Katie Jump Rope Line.

  84. miriam says:

    I’m in love with a new jelly roll at the moment called “sultry” It’s so gorgeous, I have all these creations ready in my mind!

  85. Sherry says:

    ok. I got a lot of fabric at my Mill End Textiles when it was moving buildings. I found a beautiful fabric that probably hadn’t seen the light of day in quite a while. My favorite is a Telegraph Road Studio designed by Pepper Cory. I can’t find it on the web anywhere and I have to say it looks nothing like what she has out now. Very vintage looking… maybe it really IS vintage!

  86. Claire says:

    I’ve heard so much about this book lately…

  87. Julie says:

    Moda is always, ALWAYS cranking out something I can’t live without, but lately I’ve become seduced by all those fun japanese prints out there – the storybook ones are my fave!

  88. Jennifer says:

    My favorite fabric collection has always been my mother’s. I’m certain that you guys are asking about collections that are currently in production, but nothing compares to the stuff from the 70′s she had with grasshoppers or strawberries on it. While she is still with us, she is, sadly, no longer able to sew. My dad recently sent me all of the fabric she had left – I’m currently hording even the tiny scraps. I just can’t find a project “good” enough for them!

  89. Heather says:

    OH! I am loving the new Heather Ross fabric. I have a FQ of the one with the little fish. I need to figure out what to do with that!

  90. lisa says:

    my favourite at the moment…a delicate apple print on white eyelet.

  91. Carrie says:

    Please!!!!

  92. Lisa C says:

    I love japanese robot fabric and Amy Butler fabrics. I also really love Joel Dewberry prints!

  93. Paige says:

    My “favorite” is periwinkle tulle that was used a lot in the decorations at my wedding (almost 6 years ago). I draped it all over the place, and LOVE periwinkle. I’m planning to use some of it to make a tutu for my daughter…she’s at the twirling age : )

  94. Amanda Calloway says:

    All of Amy Butler’s but for some odd reason I have a huge pink stash of her fabric! Guess I like pink.

  95. Lavina says:

    I have a piece of velvet patchwork fabric that I got at a garage sale. I don’t know the name of it but I LOVE it. I have no idea what to make with it, can’t seem to cut into it and so it sits.

  96. Jan says:

    I love every batik there is.. I am a materialholic and can go to any daily meeting about it!

  97. Lisa says:

    I really love Alexander Henry’s Aviary, specifically the gray and pink version. For that matter, I also like Joel Dewberry’s Aviary. My favorite overall designer though, is Michael Miller.

  98. hope says:

    I absolutely lament Michael Miller’s Bot Camp and Alexander Henry’s Traffic Jam in Turquoise! I’ve been dying to get my hands on some baby boy fabric prints for my little one. Such gems!! But sadly, none are sold locally… So drool away… :)

  99. Lisa says:

    Surely I can name one, but that wouldn’t be honest…I will name the ONEs that come to mind this minute (and try to keep from re-posting when I remember others just after I post). Seahorses and Swim Class by Heather Ross, ShangriLa and Aviary by ThreeSisters, Portugal by April Cornell. Oh, another, I unknowingly bought a paisley called Morrocan Spice in two colorways, so that one is in, and there are so many, but I have to say those are the best of them all to me. –Lisa

  100. jamie says:

    my all-time favorite line is most definitely miss schmidt’s “flea market fancy”. oh, how i love it! i have most of the pieces too, so i also get to hoard it. and since it’s now hard to find, i haven’t been able to cut it yet. but i can still enjoy taking it out and looking over the pieces one by one… sounds silly, but i know i’m not the only one who does this. :)

  101. MomOfThree says:

    I love getting knit material from the Patsy Aiken tent sales. They sell 2 yard cuts for $4 and I can make 4 little girls nightgowns with one cut! It also make darling dresses.

  102. mikawendy says:

    My favorite fabric lately is this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/12584501@N03/3202247243/in/set-72157602424463222/

    The only thing is that I’m planning on using this for a quilt backing and I’m struggling with how to quilt this quilt–I don’t want anything that will be too busy and hide the pattern of this fabric, and I also don’t want something too boring and linear.

  103. gwynyth says:

    I am new to sewing and don’t have much stashed, but I recently used some fabric from moda with these old mother goose- like prints of children and wild flowers to make a quilt top for my 4yr old….I’ve had it since he was a few months old and FINALLY braved a project with it.
    Thanks for the chance!

  104. Sandra L. says:

    I love the Tweedle Dum from the Wonderland fabric collection by MoMo for Moda

  105. Asa says:

    I have always loved the Heather Ross Munki prints – especially the recess playground print with the little girls playing!

  106. Cynthia says:

    Very hard to choose a favorite because it changes! Right now I am loving Darla, but I also love the little prints from Kokka on the linen fabric- so cute. I would love to win a copy of Weekend Sewing.

  107. danna osen says:

    Weekend Sewing looks like a great book. I’m sure I could make great use of it. For right now the Katie Jump Rope line just reminds me of something my grandmother would have loved and used. I do so enjoy your blog and forum.

  108. amy says:

    I’ve been drooling over LizzyDish and Anna Maria Horner! Oh, just to have a few pieces…..

  109. Debbie says:

    My current favorite collection is a group of three retro prints I bought because they looked cute together on the fabric shop shelf; one is yellow with black figures, one is a green and black mini-print and one is purple flowers with green leaves.

  110. I collect the Aunt Grace Fabrics and other reproduction fabrics. Would love to win Heather’s Weekend Sewing!! Love the site!!!

  111. Kate says:

    I love Amy Butler’s Morning Glory in Slate. There are so many others that are gorgeous as well, but I think it is my favorite!

  112. Mary says:

    I can’t get enough of Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern collections! So beautiful!

  113. Laura says:

    I was just looking through the fabric you are selling and I really like Plant Life Two White ~ Night and Day 2

  114. emma says:

    my favourites at the moment have to be those of the talented trio at Ink and Spindle inkandspindle.blogspot.com from Melbourne, Australia. Not only do they make great fabrics but they are really nice people too!

  115. Kristine in WA says:

    I have a few yards of vintage white cotton with small red flowers on it and it is so beautiful. I am waiting to move into our “forever” house-the home we will never move from and make kitchen curtains. I smile now just thinking about it.

  116. Ammie says:

    I love this print of colorful and whimsical pegasus-zebras (winged zebras). I’m not sure what line it’s from, but it’s perfect for things for my little boy. We made diaper covers and diaper bags out of it!

  117. I got the sewing/quilting bug thanks to Anna Griffin’s Evelyn collection and my soon-to-be-a-girl-pregnant-belly, and I’ve never looked back.

  118. Judy says:

    Picking one is so hard…Joel Dewberry’s Damask and Ticking Stripe are real beauties.

  119. Shelly says:

    I love the Katie Jump Rope fabrics and am excited they’re newly stocked and on sale!

  120. Kristena says:

    I just love Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks collection, wish I could buy a few yards of each print! :)

  121. Angela says:

    One of my all time favs is Swell by Urban Chicks. I have a few strips of a jelly roll left and I am saving them for something special!

  122. alison says:

    Well, I would have said Katie Jump Rope was the collection I was most lamenting having missed out on, but you’ve got more – hoooray!! :)

  123. Annemari says:

    I love those Flea market fancy fabrics by Denyse Schmidt that have those little sprouts. I wish I could still find that fabric somewhere.

  124. emily says:

    This is am almost impossible question! I have hoarded some of the beloveed Heather Ross gnomes fabric. Which I adore so much that I haven’t been able to use it yet! But, I am now totally enamored with the mendocino mermaids, the main print. I haven’t bought it yet as I can’t decide which colorway to go with. Also there is a few Echino prints that I absolutely lust after! And surprisinglym there is a ultra fabu Ikea print that I have squirreled away waiting for the right upholstery project. This is no way to pick just one!

  125. Helen says:

    Oooh I would absolutely love to win that book – it sounds great!
    My favrourite fabric collection which seems to have sold out everywhere is Summer in the City by Urban Chiks.

  126. Jess says:

    Honestly, my newest obsession is vintage flat sheets from the 70′s!! The floral patterns are so great and they are just wasting away in Goodwill stores all over America!

  127. J. Harmon says:

    I love Tanya Whelan’s Darla and anything by Heather Bailey.

  128. Lynne in NC says:

    I have one fat quarter of Tula Pink’s Flutterby left. I have been saving it for a bag for me, but the decisions… what kind of bag? and what do I pair it with? It’s in the turquoise colorway and I have some linen, oh well. One day I’ll cut into it and sew for the weekend.

  129. Kathleen says:

    I’ve only just gotten a sewing machine, so I don’t have favorites … YET! I do love toile in all its variety, though.

  130. Angel Funk says:

    I am hoarding the garden gnome print by Heather Ross right now, and lamenting that the toadstool pattern is out of production.

  131. Judy says:

    I’m collecting fabrics to make a quilt that reminds me of my travels with my dragon boat teammates. My favorite so far is Echino’s scooter fabric, which reminds me of a wild scooter rental in Victoria last summer.

  132. momma kate says:

    I have a little less than a yard of a fab vintage pink on pink…can’t decide what to do with it…too many ideas, too little fabric!

  133. catt says:

    I just love fabric of all kinds and colors anf prints! I just cant seam to cut it. I have a nice collection going …. is there help for that? LOL

  134. Karen Ellis says:

    I really love Tritan Deep Sea from the Neptune Collection – it’s lush and gorgeous! :-)

  135. Catherine says:

    I had some fabulous hot pepper fabric once that I loved and used in a bunch of different projects, including a pair of quilts for twin boys (who are now almost 6!). I have found other hot peppers but none as great as the original.

  136. Liz says:

    i love simple graphic prints–polka dots, stripes, those sorts of things. any kind, any collection. and i won’t use them on just any project, either…it has to be just the perfect one! consequently, i have a small hoard of dotted and striped fabrics that have yet to be used. :) i must say i love the fishes above, though.

  137. Lisa Hayes says:

    I can’t believe that there is a book I haven’t seen yet. Looking forward to checking out all the projects.

  138. Alex says:

    My favorite fabric ever: I once bought a shirt in a thrift store just to reuse the fabric, and I keep hoping to find something similar, but never have. The fabric was olive green, with tiny stylized turquoise blue peacocks printed all over it.

  139. Kimberley Carlson says:

    Momo’s Wonderland. Just saw it for the first time the other day, and I love it! Definitely need to get me some! : )

  140. Robert Kaufman “Chopsticks Please!”. It is lime green with sushi scattered all over it – I want to make a sushi purse out of it. I love sushi – and the bright green color!

  141. Ali says:

    I have been drooling over the Good Folks patterns, but love the Woodland Wonderland patterns and the Pop Gardens peonies. Love them all!

  142. Stacey says:

    I’m pretty new to sewing and fabric, so I don’t really have a favorite collection. I really love the bright geometrics the best though!

  143. shannon says:

    Tula Pink’s Full Moon Forest – a project has to be A1 Top priority to merit even one owl from the last of my pink owl paisley :)

  144. Lisa says:

    The returning fabrics are great. I love the red with flowers. Seeing such great fabrics makes me want to start some new projects. When I was looking for bedding for my baby’s room, I knew I wanted penguins but couldn’t find any fabric that matched what I saw in my head. One day I walked into a quilt store and found my inspiration fabric, a black and white penguin batik. When I found the fabric everything else came together.

  145. Carole says:

    My current fabric favorite is anything by Tanya Whelan. I love roses and any fabric that looks old fashion. Her fabric is hard to find, I am trying to order some today. Thanks

  146. Jamie says:

    I currently love Mermaids Aqua ~ Mendocino by Heather Ross. I could buy every print in the line!!!

  147. Shannon says:

    I love the West Hill by Heather Ross. And Mendicino by Heather Ross. And Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt. I think I am going to have to buy some fabric right now. Thank you for your awesome online store and blog!

  148. Valerie says:

    I love pretty much anything by Anna Maria Horner, but I also love the Mendocino line by Heather Ross and her gnomes fabric. I’ve been hoarding all of my favorites, but it really is time to get out the fabric and do something with it. I just gotta figure out what to make!

  149. Jennifer says:

    I’m currently infatuated with the Alexander Henry Granville line in the turquoise colorway, though I’m dying to also get the pink colorway as well!

  150. emily says:

    i am smitten with all of the Alexander Henry Aviary fabrics, i own all colors… in good quantities… just couldn’t hep myself

  151. Julia in MI says:

    Heather Bailey’s Freshcut is one of my favorites, because it really inspired me to get into sewing more. I love Amy Butler fabrics and Anna Maria Horner. I am learning more about other lines. It’s fun to browse them all to find just the right one for a given project. I have read reviews on this book you are giving away. Sounds like a great book to own.

  152. Britney C. says:

    I haven’t been using or aware of so many designer fabrics until recently but I bought some Mod Blooms by Patty Young that I just love and can’t bare to cut in to! Plus I still need to find the perfect project for it.

  153. Kristin says:

    I love this blog. Thanks for all the shared talent. I love the Katie Jump Rope combination.

  154. rachel says:

    liberty prints for children’s heirloom sewing are my favorites but I love to sew anything and everything.

  155. Carolyn says:

    My most cherished fabric is a tiny scrap of vintage stuff handed down to me from my mom — it’s a rusty orange color with fuzzy embossed yellow and green bananas scattered about on it. The scrap is only about 8″ square, but I’m waiting for something really special to use it on — it just makes me smile.

  156. Robin says:

    I don’t know the designer, but my current favorite fabric is a pink pique with small cherries all over it. I don’t know exactly what to do with it. I”ve had it for years and am afraid to make anything with it b/c I don’t want to cut it!!!!

  157. kathi pinkston says:

    I simply cannot get enough of Maypole by April Cornell. It is me all over!

    kathi

  158. Danna says:

    I love the great small calicos of the 70′s and wish I could find more of them!

  159. Nessa Dee says:

    My favorite fabric collection is not a collection per say, but an old unfinished quilt top pieced by my great-great grandmother.

  160. Andrea Heinz says:

    I tend to covet my vintage fabrics that I got from my Grandma. Mostly because I know they can’t be replaced!

  161. Cindy says:

    I love Heather Ross Mendocino. Mermaids!

  162. Ramona says:

    It is to hard to pick a favorite fabric. But I love Michael Millers Carnival. I would love to make a purse out of that fabric. I have to say though that Good Folks from Anna Marie Horner is gorgeous too. Just to many beautiful fabrics.

  163. CC says:

    i love the amy butler fabrics – but one i’d really like to get hold of is one i’ve seen on the web made of measuring tapes in yellows, oranges, greens… don’t knwo what it’s called?

  164. Cara says:

    I have some vintage kitchen fabric that I bought to make cafe curtains, but I haven’t been able to cut into it yet.

    I also just inherited a huge stash of fabric from my grandmother and there’s a lot of great stuff in there.

  165. krishnam says:

    I lust after indian embroidery fabric, so much work in each fabric…makes beautiful dresses!

  166. sarah says:

    I have been trying to find the Joel Dewberry Aviary collection ~ I love the colorful wood grain prints! But, my current fave is anything by Amy Butler. I also love all the fabric at IKEA because it is so bright and fun.

  167. Sharron says:

    I’m a little new at this but I have some Michael Miller fabric with chinese children on it that I love and would buy tons of it if I could.

  168. Kim D. says:

    beautiful fabrics up!

  169. Natalie Hawley says:

    I lived in Texas for a few years after nursing scholl and have been collecting ‘cowboy’ and ‘western’ prints since. I hope to make a quilt someday.

  170. Gina says:

    I LOVE the new Robert Kaufman GREENstyle panda prints. Namely the leaf prints!

  171. Sandy H. says:

    How to chose a favorite when there are so many beauties out there!

    I think I would have to go with anything Amy Butler and also the Blackbird Collections. I am also addicted to their cross-stitch projects.

    So much to sew and stitch and only one lifetime to do it in!

  172. Mary Beth says:

    My alltime fav print is Anna Maria Horner’s Sketchbook fabric in Ivory. Love LOVE LOVE it!

  173. kristi says:

    I love the older Heather Ross Munki Munki fabrics. I hoard the ones I have– even the scraps! Especially the brushed poplins- they are so soft and luscious. My daughter is finally old enough for a “dream Bike” dress this summer– IF she’s good. :)

  174. Chris says:

    I am so new to all this but right now I am in love with the Moda fabrics!! Love the feel of the fabric and the different patterns!
    Chris

  175. Sarah C says:

    I love Anna Maria Horner’s fabric lines. I’m sewing with my stash to make room for some yardage!

  176. DebbieKL says:

    I have several Robert Kaufmann fabrics designed by Amy Schimler that I like too much to cut up! Need to find a special purpose for them.

  177. Aimee says:

    I am hoarding Flea Market Fancy. Any time I see yardage, I try to buy it. Yet I can’t bring myself to cut into it! Insanity…

  178. Missy says:

    I don’t know the name of the print- it was a vintage print, a jack and jane type with soft colors, almost a nursery rhyme toile print…my friend was making a quilt featuring it, but had bought it years ago. I have looked for it online and every time I go to a fabric store. Sigh…

  179. victoria says:

    It happened when I moved to a new town. Grocery shopping has never been the same, b/c there is fabric at the grocery store! Imagine my delight when I found stacks of vintage fabric, which has probably been there on the shelves for fifty years. The best was a turquoise and brown damask, very graphic, printed on a heavy twill.
    My other favorite vintage fabric used to be a housecoat that my grandma wore. It was made in France and is printed with many colors and the patterns all seem to work together. I put it on a bag with her photo and it makes me smile every time I see it.
    New fabrics – the wood grain from Joel Dewberry has me wanted to make everything for my little boy. I used it on a cowboy shirt, a pair of pants and now it’s going on a hatband.
    Thanks,
    Victoria

  180. Mary says:

    All time favorite?!! The ONE collection I’m hoarding?!!! I am a new sewer but already have a fullblown fabric-holic obsession….. I have the full line of Tina Given’s Chloe’s Imagination, which is the fabric that got me into sewing to begin with… Now I’m on to Good Folks, with the lovely oil cloth on my kitchen table, and at least a yard of the whole collection. I just ordered some fat quarters too so that I wouldn’t have to cut into my yardage! I mean, I have to be able to pul it out and fondle it you know! My latest obsession is Full Moon Forrest by Tula Pink. I’m trying to amass enough yardage of the aqua owl to make a quilt- ha, easier said that done!

  181. Nisa S. says:

    I think Heather Ross’s (I know our choice doesn’t have to be from a Heather Ross collection!) Far Far Away will be my absolute favorite collection ever and I can’t wait to get some!

  182. How does one have a favorite fabric? That is like asking what your favorite Beatle’s song is- or your favorite book, favorite artist? THAT is an impossible request. I CAN give you my top 5 – I am IN LOVE with the moda line- currently working with 1974- I love thirties repros, I love batiks , and anything with birds- esp the fat belly style birds, in it.
    I also LOVE Sew Mama Sew. Your blog is inspiring and current and I love the trend towards basic sewing and working outside the major pattern company’s box. Thank you for day in day out inspiration.

  183. Lunachance says:

    I have a Hoffman batik that is a turquoise blue with a touch of green that I have used as water in two quilts, as a background for a Golden Retriever head for a wall hanging and I am afraid to touch the last yard of it. I have not seen this particular coloring for about 5 years ort so…

    Lunachance

  184. Morgan says:

    I have some fabric I bought in Japan almost 3 years ago that I love. Just knowing I’ll never get more of it makes me too afraid to use it for anything. I hate that!

  185. Amanda says:

    I favourite without a doubt is the Julia Cairns ‘Sunset Safari Collection’. It is exotic and exciting but also tells a tale – and is absolutely devine!

  186. Junglewife says:

    I’m not sure I made it in time for the deadline but I’d love to win this! I love anything by Amy Butler. I haven’t really been sewing long enough to have an all-time favorite line, though… :-)

  187. stacey says:

    I covet Juicy Lemons by Alexander Henry. I don’t know how I missed it, but it’s gone and when I see someone has used it in a quilt or project I get nostalgic and melancholy all over again. I am really drawn to the mermaids and sea creatures in Mendocino by Heather Ross , one of my favorite places in the world too. I would love to win her new book.
    Thanks for the give away.

  188. tara boos says:

    I forgot to mention my all time favvvvv… fabric which is…gosh this is hard, but i do have a little speck of this orange material with greeny purple flowers in big print. no idea who made it.

    and i love love all american fabric.. USA!! USA!!

  189. tara boos says:

    Wow I totally would so greatly love that book! please please pretty please.

  190. Viv says:

    I have some Park Slope that is my current favourite, but I’m coveting some of the Mendocino :-) Oh and I really like Amy Butler’s Daisy Chain. Really there are so many to love.

  191. Karen says:

    I have about a yard of a beautiful white on white fabric I found at a thrift store in south Georgia. It would be perfect for a baby bonnet or baby dress, but not one of my children will have me a baby girl to make it for. I’m still hoping though!

  192. Deborah says:

    Oooh. I have a small piece of Japanese fabric that is blue with strawberries that I have been saving forever.

  193. Stacey says:

    I can’t say I have an all time favorite right now, that seems to change with the wind. I am lovin me some Good Folks right now.

    Thanks

    Stacey J

  194. wendy says:

    My favourite print is a teal-y blue with little sprigs of brown and tan branches on it. I’ve used it as trim for almost everything I made for a while there, because it actually goes with everything. Now, sadly, I’ve run out of it (except for a few little snippets that I WON’T throw out!), and oh, I wish I could find some more. I loved it. A lot.

  195. Michelle says:

    Dashing Roses Collection, by artgalleries. I have a yard of it and I’m waiting for a special project. I’m thinking a new summer purse. I love the colors and pattern. :-)

  196. Bre says:

    I’m new to sewing (within the last few months), so I don’t have a favorite line yet, but I really like that Katie Jump Rope line. Very cute, and am already struggling to decide what I would use it for.
    And who wouldn’t want the book!? My sister-in-law’s neighbor wrote the book and my sister-in-law has really enjoyed it so far!

  197. Jenni says:

    I absolutely LOVE vintage Strawberry Shortcake fabric…haven’t done anything with it…just like to have it!!! :)

  198. Emiko says:

    I love any Japanese kimono fabric! Aside from that I love Etsuko Furuya designs.

  199. Alisa says:

    I love everything Anna Maria Horner . Every time she comes out with a new fabric, I think, Ohhh that’s my favorite. So you see, I have lots of favorites :) I love your blog and read it daily. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  200. Sarah says:

    I’ve been coveting the Mendocino collection since it came out!

  201. Sher says:

    It’s impossible for me to have a favorite fabric because I love them all. Which is why my fabric room is 14′x20′. Just made a major “killing” at a garage sale where I got my SUV stuffed (litereally) with old fabric for $5.00. My favs out of that haul was 8 yards of a blue fabric with garden gnomes and mushrooms and a piece with a boy monkey and a girl monkey.

  202. erin says:

    I really cant pick just one, but ANYTHING by Amy Butler is fantastic!!

  203. Megan says:

    Ditto on many of the comments above, but I also loved a sweet little cherry print on pink mini corduroy I used last year to make some Angry Chicken bonnets for my daughters. I don’t know who the designer was but it was simple and lovely and now it’s gone. :(
    Oh how I would love to win this book. Thanks for the chance.

  204. Pauline says:

    Definitely Katie Jump Rope, it’s just gorgeous.

  205. Martha Merriman says:

    You all rock! Love the prints and the book! Good luck everyone!

  206. Melissa says:

    I seem to gravitate to anything Amy Butler even if I don’t know it’s hers at first.

  207. Eva says:

    Currently the fabric of choice is Kimono in Plum from Sugar Snap Collection by Melissa Averinos…I must have it. Maybe for the box bags I am getting ready to make!!!! Happy sewing.

  208. Suzanne says:

    I love the Amy Butler Lotus designs in the pink hues. I bought all the fabric to make my daughter a quilt. I love the fabric so much and have never quilted before so I’ve put off cutting into it. Maybe she’ll have a quilt before she graduates high school – she’s three now!

  209. Jules says:

    I love anything from Amy Butler Designs.

  210. Angela says:

    I currently am lusting after some of the Daisy Chain collection by Amy Butler. I love the colors and the patterns. Unfortunately, there are no good fabric shops in the town I live in and I have to drive an hour to get to anything decent. I spend waayyyy too much time drooling over fabrics on this site!!! :)

  211. karen says:

    ohh how I would love to win Heather’s book. I have pansy fabric and various strawberry fabrics that I keep thinking I will make something with and then just cant bear to cut the fabric.

  212. Abi B says:

    I am very much coveting the Katie Jump Rope fabrics and I’ve always wanted to get Amy Butler fabric. Such fabulous prints!

  213. Aimee says:

    I am loving “Wonderland” by Momo. I keep looking at it online, and waiting for a little extra spending money!!

  214. Jennifer says:

    I love the whimsical Japanese fabrics… the Folklore collection is one of my favorites!

  215. Angi Wood says:

    I just got some fabric from Heather Ross’ Mendocino line, and let me tell you it wasn’t easy to find where I live. I’m excited to make a quilt for my little girl with it!

  216. Little A says:

    My favorite ever is Katie Jump Rope. I buy more with almost every online fabric purchase. So glad you have it back in stock!

    I can’t wait to get Weekend Sewing!

  217. Carrie S says:

    I just love fabric! It is so calming and inspirational and makes me happy! Anything by Amy Butler. And I can’t resist polka-dots, they are my weakness.

  218. Kara says:

    recently, i purchased more than I needed of this little japanese cafe curtain with a french motif. All you do is cut along the scallops and hem the edges – SO GREAT! I made sure I’d have some left over for that next great project…

  219. Bre Ann says:

    My first love was Paris Flea Market collection from 3 sisters. Now I dream of getting some Amy Butler Midwest Modern.

  220. gina snyder says:

    Oh I love Jennifer Pagnelli’s Flower Power. I want some so bad!! Spring is my absolute favorite time of the year when all the flowers start blooming and her new fabric makes me feel all springy!!

    Hugs,
    Gina

  221. Sarah Penke says:

    Some more great spring fabrics, and i would love to win the book.

  222. Jodi Keeling says:

    happy that i found your site. thanks

  223. onerobinroad says:

    Oliveira Textiles has some intreging prints that I would love to try out. But too expensive for me.
    I am also hording some vintage prints my mom bought in panama in the sixties. Too great to use.

  224. Jan says:

    I like to use old terry cloth bathrobes to salvage the fabric for the backing of baby quilts.

  225. Joey Snow says:

    My all time favorite fabric is an Amy Butler print. Brown with large floral print (I don’t remember the name) I used so much of it and now I only have itty bitty scraps and hoard them but don’t know what to do with such little pieces.

  226. helena says:

    I was blessed with receiving many fabrics(boxes full) when my grandmother passed away, so much I had to send some to my moms home to store. I enjoy pulling out old fabric for projects all the time. :)

  227. Katy says:

    I would love this book!!

  228. Sarah D says:

    I’ve got a yard of gorgeous red fabric with darker red chrysthanemums on it. I’ve been trying to find more of it, but no luck.

  229. ratty says:

    i have a batik-y red fabric with white hearts on it and i’ve put pieces of it in several quilts and projects over the last few years :) the piece i have left is only about 1/2 of a fat quarter in size with no selvage and i can’t even remember [kaufman?] who made it now! i am hoarding my last little piece for…??

  230. Saskia says:

    Heather Ross’ gnomes

  231. Ruth says:

    Ginger Bliss by Amy Butler. Sigh, I should have bought more when I did…I have about 1/2 yard left of the kaleidoscope print that I just love.

  232. momawake says:

    One of my favorites is Celebrate Spring by Sandy Gervais for Moda. A little of it is still available on ebay, but…I’ve made a jelly bag and doll quilts out of it. It’s such a sweet line.

  233. Rebecca says:

    I have a piece of Prints Charming hand printed fabric that I refuse to use. I just stare at it for inspiration and those warm fuzzies!

  234. Alice says:

    I am very sorry to have missed the gnome fabric you used to carry. I am currently waiting to cut into some furry blue fleece that is quite a bit like Harry monster :)

  235. I’m really liking Michael Miller’s Tweet Tweet collection right now and I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the Japanese import fabrics.

  236. kima says:

    I have a bunch of the munki munki prints that I am hoarding until I finally get pregnant with our first baby. We are a little challenged in that department but hopeful. So, I keep collecting coordinating solids and sewing patterns.

  237. tamara says:

    I love Katie Jump Rope. My all time favorite :)

  238. Deb says:

    My favorite fabric is anything with cherries on it! I”ve made quilts, tops, purses, bags, baskets, pillow cases, you name it; all with cherry fabric.

  239. Lisa says:

    I have a piece of purple fabric but I don’t remember what it is but it soft and flowy and feels shammy like. The reason I don’t remember is because it was bought back around 1988 – yes that wasn’t a typo!

  240. Christine says:

    I love any bright colored fabric and any novelty fabrics. My all time favorite though was this animal jungle print for babies. I used it in my first quilt ever, which I kept. But when I went back to the store, it was gone. I haven’t seen it since. I have been scouring the web for it too. Sadness! My favorite right now though that I’m working with is American Primer from Minick and Simpson for Moda. The blues and reds in the fabrics are gorgeous…not too bright and not too dull. :) A lot of beautiful fabric and not enough money. :)

  241. suzi says:

    I am loving and wanting any fabric with colorful and playful robots. But that is this weeks wants my fabric loves seem to change often. So many cute prints out there you have to love them all!

  242. amylouwho says:

    Do i have to pick just one? I love Amy Butler’s Belle. and Lotus. And Midwest Modern. Pretty much anything she touches. I want to use some and make the Summer blouse that I have seen look so cute on everyone ‘s blogs.

    Oh, as for fabric that I am sad is out of print – Moda’s Chez Moi. The predecessor to Chez Posh. I have 2 fat quarters and am sad I don’t have one of every print in the collection.

  243. Jayme says:

    I love a lot of Robert Kaufman fabrics, they are so bright and fun! I especially like Amy Shimler’s Forest Fun collection. It’s just adorable! I don’t have any but I want some!

  244. Robyn says:

    I adore Sandy Klop’s Wee Play. I just can’t bring myself to cut into it!!

  245. Lori K. says:

    My favorite collection is my 30′s/40′s reproduction prints.

  246. MaryP says:

    When I originally saw Urban Couture in a catalog, I wasn’t thrilled. Then something clicked when I saw it in person. Amazingly awesome. I love it. Still can’t bear to cut into my numerous yards of it!

  247. Leah says:

    My favorite fabric is probably Amy Butler’s Lotus Lacework in Olive. I made a baby sling out of it, and all I get are compliments on the fabric. It has a striking motif, and the colors are beautiful and subdued. However, I am really in love with the new Wonderland by MoMo, but I am afraid if I bought it I would just look at it and not use it for anything at all! Sigh.

  248. Hannah says:

    I’m not sure who makes it, but I’ve been having lots of fun lately with some fabric that I got from a remnants bin a couple of months ago. It is mostly pink with trees on it. I bought it to make my daughters a growth chart with and gave a fat quarter away during our swap. I’ve got about a yard of it left and am trying to decide what to do next.

  249. JaneR says:

    I recently purchased a few pieces of Northcott brand fabric – what nice fabric. I long for the Liberty lawn dresses I once had —though they wouldn’t fit now –the fabric would be very nice in some of my current projects. Thanks for entering me in your contests, again and again!!!!!

  250. Kaye says:

    Right now I am lusting after the Katie Jump Rope fabrics. I always have things in my stash that I can’t bear to cut into. It is just too pretty. This year though I told myself that I could not buy any new fabrics until I used up some of my stash and I hae done a pretty good job of it.

  251. R B says:

    I love Erin Michaels. Also Anna Marie Horner. Any of the new fabrics with birds and trees in the design are great.

  252. Mollye says:

    I love just about everything that Joel Dewberry has put out- unfortunately I haven’t had to joy of owning any yet. Probably for the best, I’d never be able to cut into it!

  253. Libby says:

    My favorite collection has been the Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt. I’ve bought at least three different fabrics from that collection and still have 2 yards left of one that I’m saving for that perfect project.

  254. Mary says:

    I’m in love with the new Robert Kauffman- specially the pears, apples, and big giant chickens. I just want to make everything i can think of out of those fabrics!

  255. erin says:

    i covet some amy butler fabric, doesn’t matter what, i love it all!

  256. Jen says:

    My favourite collection is Tula Pink’s “Flutterby” collection. Love the hidden (and not so hidden) bugs.

  257. Rachel says:

    I’m fairly new to quilting (just learned to turn on a sewing machine before I started my first quilt), and I have to admit that before I got started couldn’t really figure out the obsession with discontinued fabric lines. I mean, i figured, there’s so much incredibly cute fabric out there, I’ll surely be satisfied. Then, I decided to make a baby quilt for a friend and came across Lightning Bugs. It became a total obsession. I had so much fun making that quilt, and I loved the result so much that I had to go stockpile some more of the line to squirrel away for the day that I have my own baby to quilt for.

    So, I’d have to say that when you start scouring the internet for a fabric line that is discontinued, to hoard against the day when you use it for a baby that does not exist and is not even imagined at this point, then that is probably a favorite :-) The goldfish! The bikes!! The tiny campers!!!! The chihuahua in a teacup!!!!!!!!!!! I love it all.

  258. Ariel says:

    My favorite print of all time is a vintage bed sheet that is light aqua with little black and white chickadees hiding amongst some ugly green foliage. It’s not the prettiest fabric ever,…it’s actually not very pretty at all, but it was on my bed when I visited my mamaw. When I was about 5 years old, she passed away and no one could find the sheet,…until I was about 25 years old and my aunt was transferring a tree and saw that it had been wrapped in the sheet. I have it now and want to make it into a quilt, but am having trouble cutting into it.

  259. Michelle says:

    Okay, that didn’t work… it’s

    http://greetingarts.typepad.com/greetingarts/2008/02/quilted-kitties.html

    There. Sorry.

  260. Betsy says:

    I have a piece of striped Parisian silk from the 1940′s that I’ve been coveting for about 10 years since it was given to me by a very good friend. It isn’t part of a collection, but I’ve never found anything that I wanted to use it for! I’m considering making travel bags for all my girlfriends so that we can all enjoy it together! Thanks for the wonderful blog!

  261. Michelle says:

    I’m kind of all about the novelty prints, and my all time favorite might be Sumo Sam by Michael Miller. Just cracked me up when I saw it, but of course I didn’t buy it then, and years later I had to hunt it down to put it on the back of the first quilt I ever completed. I gave it to my husband, so now I can look at it whenever I want. :0)

    If you want to see it, it’s here.

  262. Shauna R says:

    I’ve been having a lot of fun with Mendocino, myself.

  263. Amy says:

    I bought 1 yard of brown and teal flowered fabric from a little boutique fabric store in Savannah, GA 6 years ago. I was so broke, but I paid the $20 for the yard, and held on to it for a couple of years. I finally broke down, framed a piece of it, and based my whole color scheme of my living room around that piece of fabric. I wish I knew who designed it so I could track some more down! I just love it!

  264. Misty.Creek says:

    I really miss the ’70s sheets I grew up with. My sister got the full bed we shared, and the sheets. When I realized that, duh, those sheets were awesome!, she’d already given them away. Bummer. I WANT that book!

  265. Deborah C. says:

    Kaffe Fasset florals!

  266. Laura says:

    I adore Alexander Henry prints. So fun!

  267. [email protected] says:

    I am in LOVE with the Katie Jump Rope Fabric!! I see the purse I have a pattern for in the fabric shown. I have been waiting to find just the right fabric to make my new bag and these are now on my must have list.

  268. Alex says:

    i’m very new to sewing and I have already driven my hubby crazy with this site and all the hints about what I want for mother’s day (fabric from here). I love bright loves and “Beetle Juice” colors. Colors which usually don’t go together is what I call Beetle Juice colors. I love being different but with a classy style not junkie.

  269. Zennie says:

    I am so happy that you’ve restocked Mendocino, it’s is my favorite!!! Thanks!!

  270. Shannon says:

    Since I just got into fabric collecting, I only have a few collections, my absolute favorite being the Mendocino line (doesn’t hurt that I grew up near this area). However, I have been coveting Hello Betty and now that you have restocked, I am finding so many more things to covet! No fair!

  271. Anna says:

    It’s impossible to pick an ALL-TIME favorite, but I have been using a lot of Erin McMorris’ Park Slope collection.

  272. Grenae Thompson says:

    I’m currently hoarding Wuthering Heights by 3 Sisters for Moda—two packs of charm squares and yardage of most designs. I see beautiful pillows in my soon-to-be-updated master bedroom.

  273. Sarah says:

    I am searching for Anna Maria Horner’s print of the Azalea Small Gathering from Good Folks….I love this print!

  274. KT says:

    My current favorite is a civil war reproduction that is brown with pink and blue flowers. It is all gone at my local quilt shop!!!!

  275. Carol C says:

    I love Amy Butler fabrics. She has beautiful colors and patterns. But my current favorite is a Michael Miller fabric with cute little cowboys on it. I have a 6 yr. old grandson who loves to cook. I am making him an apron and chef’s hat with it.

  276. Staci Tomb says:

    I once bought a charm pack of Moda’s Summer in the City just so I could sit and leaf through them all. When by best friend was due with her first girl last year I scavenged enough off of ebay and other random sites to make her a baby quilt. It makes me smile still just to look at some of the prints.

  277. I love, love Aunt Grace prints. They take me back to the ‘olden days’! I love that more reproduction, vintage prints are becoming more popular.

  278. Jan says:

    One of my all-time favorites was a piece I bought many years ago when I first started sewing. It’s a light blue with shasta daisies. Loved it. Today there are so many yummy pieces I’m not sure which one I’d say was my favorite now.

  279. Meredith says:

    I have always been drawn to the dizzy, sun-splashed prints from Provence. They speak of summer to me and are so cheerful and bright!

  280. Katherine W says:

    I have some vintage tea towels that I have a print that I adore. I want to repurpose them into… something. But I haven’t found the *perfect* project that’s worth using the fabric for just yet!

  281. Lynne in NY says:

    I love Empress Bouquet by Peggy Toole (Robert Kaufman Fabrics), it sings to me. It is all at once calming and exciting and exotic. It could inspire me to sew one of those weekend projects (hint hint.)

  282. Kerry says:

    I like Lotta Jansdotter/Amy Butler style fabrics.

  283. I love the Robyn Pandolph pastel flower fabrics and co-ordinates by Moda. I bought them years ago-some of each pattern but it’s impossible to buy now. I am VERY choosy where I use them because I don’t want to use them all up!

  284. Dawn says:

    I love anything Kaffe Fasset!

  285. jenny says:

    There are so many lovely fabrics these days. There are so many that I love. I have a very soft purple wool herringbone in my stash that I absolutely love. I bought it at a remnant store years ago.

  286. Amy B. says:

    I’ve got a one yard piece of baby wale corduroy in an adorable juvenile print just waiting for the perfect project. I still can’t decide what to do with it. Then there’s the taupe brocade with teal and cream paisley, so beautiful. It needs to be a purse, but I can’t decide on the pattern. I have a dresser full of fabric, but those two are the ones that make me smile the most to look at them.

  287. Rachel says:

    I absolutely love the retro keyhole fabrics from American Jane for Moda in all colourways. As far as I can tell it is no longer available here in Australia. I can’t believe I only bought one fat quarter. Definately a lesson to buy more fabric… he he. Love the blog it is such a great sewing resource.

  288. Christy says:

    Amy Butler’s Lotus collection. And I’ve had my eye on Tanya Whelen’s fabrics for some time – so sweet!

  289. jm says:

    Alexander Henry’s Bisbee Butterfly!

  290. I love the Filigree Plum fabric from the Good Folks collection.

  291. Katie says:

    In contrast to all the fancy prints and quilting cottons: I am hording a creamy white stretch satin, in hopes that I will some day find the perfect vintage dress pattern. Something slinky.

  292. Lindsey says:

    I really want Mendocino

  293. I am hanging on to a couple of yards of heather ross’ Mendocino (free spirit) “giant octopi”. I bought it to make a skirt and then promptly found out I was pregnant. I want to wait until I have something resembling my normal shape back before cutting up this awesome giant octopi fabric!

  294. Katie H says:

    I’ve been coveting Patty Young-Andalucia line! I love the reds and pinks together…looking at it just makes me happy!

  295. Molly B. says:

    My fabric piece of fabric is a piece of Holly Hobby fabric I found at my Mom’s house while cleaning out her sewing room. I loved Holly Hobby when I was a girl and I’m sure she bought with intentions of making me something with it. Now I don’t want to cut it because I’m afraid anything I make with it won’t be as good as what she was planning. I just like to look at it and maybe someday I’ll frame a piece of it and put it in my sewing room.

  296. Toni says:

    My favorite stash piece is a red brocade with a chinese dragon pattern. The piece is special because it was a Christmas gift from my DH who groans about my fabric collection. When I opened it, he told me “you don’t ever have to sew it up if you don’t want to!” What a guy! Ten years later, it is still in my stash and I still love looking at it!

  297. Chelsea says:

    I don’t have any, but I am really enamored of Alexander Henry’s Cosmo, especially in pink.

  298. Tiffany says:

    My all time fave print was an imported sushi pirnt. I no longer have any left. :(

  299. Claire says:

    I love Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner, so fresh and springy!

  300. Lisa says:

    I love your blog. I wish that I had more time to sew. Everytime I view your blog I get the urge to sew something! I actually have a wonderful tweed fabric that I found at the thrift store for only a couple of bucks that I have been hoarding, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to turn it into something great.

  301. jesse says:

    the Mendocino by Heather Ross is my absolute favorite! i envision all types of projects for little girls with it. happy friday!

  302. Faye says:

    It’s hard to pick just one favorite, but at this very moment I’m liking Rocket Scientist by Keri Beyer.

  303. JJ says:

    I love the Retro Rocket Kids…I used it to make pants for my son! I’ve been hearing about Weekend Sewing and would love a copy!!

  304. aubrey fox says:

    I love Heather Bailey’s new spring line up with her new blue paisley fabric!

  305. Mary Anna says:

    I am hoarding Lila Tueller’s Soiree. I have the entire FQ stack and am about to start her Bohemian Bag for myself using the pinks and greens … perfect for summer!

    I have a “virtual stash” that I seem to add to everytime I use the computer.

  306. Gena says:

    I love Michael Miller’s Dick and Jane series. When we were expecting our 2nd child, I made the nursery out of this series b/c we didn’t know the gender. It’s fabulous!

  307. Valerie says:

    i am new to sewing so i dont have much fabric yet so i like all the pices i buy so far

  308. Laura says:

    I loved Tula Pink’s Full Moon Forest–but I only discovered it long after it was out of print.

  309. Jan M. says:

    One piece of fabric I love is Girlfriends Nuala by Jennifer Paganelli. I’m waiting for the perfect project before I cut in to it. I’ve been reading great reviews on Weekend Sewing and plan to get it soon.

  310. Michelle says:

    I have to say I LOVE my Japanese fabrics especially the linen blend ones. As for American designers Heather Ross, Denise Schmidt, Michael Miller, A. Henry and Moda are among my favorites. Its really hard to choose just one!

  311. Stephanie says:

    It’s so hard to pick just 1 print… but my favorite is currently 2d Zoo Blue from Alexander Henry.

  312. Kate says:

    I love the Heather Ross collections – especially the lightning bug print!

  313. Jessica says:

    I love bold bright prints. If I had to pick a particlular line I’d say Marimekko is a favorite.

  314. kristin says:

    I just ordered some fabric that is my new favorite – from the Jay McCarroll “Garden Friends” collection at Free Spirit. I have a little pile of fat quarters just waiting to be turned into something fun & adorable!

  315. tjesa says:

    My all time fav fabric is a heather ross print from ‘Lightning Bugs and other Mysteries’– it an across the width of the fabric beach scene with people swimming,sunbathing, sailing… just a fun fabric.. that I use sparingly on my most favorite projects!

  316. Amber says:

    I cant live without Amy Butler’s Lime Full Moon polka dot. It goes with almost everything!

  317. my favorite tried and true fabric for me is dandy damask. i have always been obsessed with damask prints and this collection had such a nice size scale, many colors and of course quality fabric. I am really loving all of the paper doll stuff right now too. How can we possibly decide a favorite when there are so many wonderful options out there!!!! so fun to GET to play with fabrics!

  318. kyla says:

    I’m wanting this book so badly! My favorite in my stash is the Bird Seed from Alexander Henry– pink and yellow colorways. Love it.

  319. Paula says:

    Japanese fabrics are my favorites, especially the ones with fairy tales themes. I always find something to make with them for my daughter and her little friends.

  320. stacy says:

    My favorite fabric now is anything Amy Butler . I buy a lot of fat quarters and than just look at them and rub my hands across.

  321. Shanna says:

    There are soooooo many fabric lines that I am currently in love with/coveting – love Heather Ross everything, anything Amy Butler (especially her new Daisy Chain), Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks, Kokka Scooters and this pink, red, brown and white mod home dec fabric that I can’t find the name of. I am on a fabric buying moratorium so I will have to hope when it is lifted I will be able to still find these. :)

  322. Kathryn says:

    I’m absolutely in love with Alexander Henry’s Granville….I think it’s super cute

  323. Shawna says:

    I’m new to the “you can buy fabric somewhere besides Joann’s” thing so I don’t have a favorite line yet. In general, I do like Amy Butler the best though. Perhaps I need some more exposure. Something that I have that I love is actually a sheet and pillowcase that came from my husband’s grandmother. It is really good quality material and is white with red-orange polka dots. I know what I want to do with it, but I haven’t been brave enough to cut it!

  324. Ann says:

    I’ve been loving using 5 Funky Monkeys by Erin Michael for Moda Fabrics. It’s so fun, and what kid wouldn’t love wearing monkeys? I just used it to sew the Round Neck Top from that *darn* kat for my niece. I will be giving it to her tomorrow for her third birthday. Thanks for all the ideas!

  325. Rebecca says:

    I am pretty new to the designer fabric world but absolutely love Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden collection. It just makes me happy. I’d like to redecorate my whole house with it, lol!

  326. Jen says:

    There are actually three that i have that I simply murmur fondly at whenever I think I’m going to cut into it. 1st is Anna Marie Horner’s Drawing Room – the stacked blocks. I don’t know what it is, but I love them. And I have a limited supply of it. Perhaps that’s the problem. 2nd is Felicity Mller’s Kites – the actual kite prints. Makes me smile and think of summer. I really need to make a skirt for me and dress for daughter out of it. 3rd is just a designer – Kaffe Fassett. I have Dahlia Blooms, Star Flowers, Asian Circles, and Clouds (I covet the Henna and have none ) – and I have yet to take a pair of scissors to those. His prints are an art to me. I’m a freely expressed emotional-fabric dork.

  327. Jocelyn says:

    I covet this book for one of my best crafting friends! Please let me win so I may give it to her.

  328. juliecache says:

    Covet would be a good word for my feelings on Anna Maria Horner, especially Cathedral Zinnia. I love all of her works, really.

  329. Lindy says:

    I absolutely love anything by Anna Marie Horner but the Good Folks line is right up my alley. I have a favorite piece I am hoarding right now. It is actually a piece of pink houndstooth bonded wool that was made into a mini skirt from way back when. Just can’t decide what to do with it. Oh yeah, and anything paisley!!!

  330. autumnesf says:

    I’m just beginning to get back into sewing after nearly a 20 year break….so really I’m just overwhelmed by all the great fabrics out there! I love them all it seems like!

  331. Megan Clark says:

    Darla….I just love it and need more!

  332. Nichole says:

    I would really like to get my hands on some flea market fancy!

  333. Annette says:

    I usually love Japanese fabrics, but right now it’s Heather Ross’ bicycle print for me. I can’t remember the exact name but it is white with orange and red bicycles. It can be hard to find just the right fabric with a bicylce theme that isn’t target at boys.

  334. Danielle D says:

    I’m still new to sewing and only have a few different fabrics in my stash right now, but I really really love some cotton print I have right now. It’s green with dragonflys and some swirls.
    I do like the Denyse Schmidt fabric above though. Simple but pretty.

  335. Liz says:

    Mendocino by Heather Ross is my all-time favorite. So whimsical!

  336. Crystal says:

    The paint by number fabric. Ugh! I can’t find it anywhere.

  337. Sara says:

    I am a Robert Kauffman and Alexander Henry addict! I cannot get enough of their fabric: fresh, fun, and full of personality!

  338. leah says:

    i am new to sewing and have just so far been hoarding the favorite fabrics that i found at some garage sales last summer =) it’s so sad having these beautiful fabrics and not wanting to use them because then they will be gone ;)

    leah
    nystraldjo at hotmail dot com

  339. Jenny says:

    sock monkey fabric

  340. Nicolle says:

    I love anything by Jennifer Paganelli! The Amanda fleur is dreamy!

  341. Ariane says:

    I’m in love with Marimekko fabric. All of it! I just adore it! I bought some islo print from their Vancouver store the other day and I can’t cut into it – it is way too pretty!

  342. staci says:

    there are so many wonderful fabrics by such talented designers it’s impossible for me to choose a favorite! One that I am hoping to find some of is Heather Ross’ Lightning Bug line (especially the print with the goldfish in the little bags!)

  343. Laura says:

    I used the Red and Green Large Birds from the Feathered Friends line to make a curtain for my bathroom and I love it!

  344. heather says:

    I’ve just started getting into sewing these past couple of months so I don’t have a big stash of fabrics. I do however love all of your prints that you have in your store.

  345. Clara says:

    I love paisley’s I rarely use or wear it but I love to look at them. Especially green paisley.

  346. Lauren says:

    I love the martini prints from Amy Butler’s Mid-West Modern line. A bit retro, a bit modern, and it comes in so many fab colors!

  347. Karen says:

    What’s the trick to being inspired? I think mine is visiting your site and the forum and reading about what everyone else is doing! thanks!

  348. Krissy says:

    I love Drawing Room by Anna Maria Horner!

  349. Heather O says:

    I have some Moda / 3 Sisters (I cannot think of the name of the line – I think it was Spice something), in oil cloth. I happened to find it at a quilt show for sale. I had never seen it in oilcloth form before so this was a special find for me. I LOVE to make bags and thought it would be beautiful for the bottoms of the bags and make them waterproof.

    I just LOVE those fabrics you have shown there. BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for the chance!

  350. Susan says:

    I’ve been coveting Ivory Sketchbook from Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room line- delicious!

  351. Colleen says:

    I continue to hoard ever last scrap of Flea Market Fancy… and I have been holding out on buying Weekend Sewing – it looks fantastic!

  352. Amanda says:

    Right now I’m hoarding this beautiful green and white floral print I found on clearance at the fabric store. I don’t even know who the designer is! I’m waiting to use it for baby bedding/nursery decor.

  353. Kathrine says:

    I have some fabric in my stash that is my all time favourite. It is canvas and is white with black musical notes all over it. When I saw it I bought two metres. I have made a bag with it and am waiting to see what else I can do with it.

  354. adrienne says:

    I missed Heather Ross’s Goldfish prints and have been searching for them, but I never seem to be in the right place at the right time. One day…

    I also am keeping little pieces of Underwater Sisters and Mocca Chocolate (Alexander Henry) hidden away for just the right project.

    Can’t wait to see “Weekend Sewing” in person. It looks amazing! =]

  355. MoniQ in WI says:

    I’m only now learning that fabrics have NAMES! Currently, I covet that Heather Ross matruschka print from the West Hill collection. The other fabrics I adore and wish I had more of are the scraps from my grandmother’s basket, including some 1930s prints.

  356. Elizabeth says:

    I miss dearly Heather Ross’ gnome fabric. I’m glad I could get the yard that I got at the time, but I feel like a big heel for not buying more and in different colorways. Those little gnomes brighten my day every time I see them on my sewing machine cover.

  357. Martha says:

    I too love Mendocino. I also love the David Walker Robots line.

  358. kristine says:

    I love the Amy Butler-Daisy Chain line! Sooo Cute!

  359. kelly jo says:

    Oh gosh, I don’t think I could pick just one! But I do love the Shangri La line from Three Sisters. I love the flowery designs and the colors fit so many seasons!

  360. Sara D. says:

    I love the Heather Ross prints with the gnomes and the VW busses. Thankfully, I have some of each!

  361. Kristena says:

    I’ve been holding onto a tiny 1/4 yard of Cath Kidston’s Rosali from Ikea for 7 years, I do believe. I bought it in college and just haven’t been able to cut into it. But it did help inspire me to buy more fabric and really delve into sewing, so that’s a good thing! One day I will find the perfect use for this bit of fabric. One day. :)

  362. Andrea says:

    I keep drooling over Patty Young’s Andalucia line.

  363. Amanda says:

    One of my all-time favorites is Shangri-La by 3 Sisters for Moda. I made a quilt out of it and would do several other projects if I could find enough of it again.

  364. Erin says:

    I’m just embarking on this sewing adventure, so I don’t really have any long-time faves…but I’ve already developed a love for Anne Butler and Anna Maria Horner…and Denyse Schmidt!

  365. Thea R says:

    I meant to type ‘summer’ not ‘suer’ ;)

  366. Thea R says:

    I have actually been loving Heather Ross’s Mendocino and her older stuff too. And, I just found some Mendocino locally which is destined to be turned into some suer dresses for my daughter.

  367. Jennifer says:

    Freshcut by Heather Bailey!

  368. Mary says:

    I have a few fabrics that I am “rationing.” I don’t want to use them on just ANY project. It has to be the right one! One is an orange and brown print called Metro Circles. Since orange is my husbans favorite color, I think I am going to use it to make a shoe bag for his golf shoes. He is going on a golf trip next month so it will get some use!

  369. Sara says:

    I love ALL fabric!

  370. Sara says:

    What a cool book! I want one! :)

  371. Lindsay says:

    Your entry “essay” requirement didn’t make me think of fabric… it made me think of one particular Vera Bradley bag that I have. the print is discontinued — Tavern on the Green. It’s black and not too floral. In short, it’s awesome… My friend sara also has a bag in this print. And whenever we get together, both of us try to barter with the other for her bag. The set would be better, but neither of us is willing to part! She doesn’t sew, so I’m just waiting for the day she breaks a strap or gets a tear and has to ask me for help. I know JUST what the price will be ;)

  372. Anne says:

    So many different choices, all so beautiful, I love Park Slope and Amy Butler’s Lotus. But I also love vintage fabric, including barkcloth.

  373. Mrs. Pear says:

    When we were in Kauai for our 4th anniversary I, of course, had to visit the quilting store, and I fell in love with the Hawaiian prints! I purchased a stash that has been used in a pattern that required lots of different fabrics, another that required 2 prints plus white, and then made a ton of napkins so that I can enjoy them all the time! They make me so happy!

  374. Jen B. says:

    I love Katie Jump Rope! Now I just need to convince my dear husband that I need more fabric! ;)

  375. Kim says:

    I have to admit, I’m new to sewing don’t follow specific fabric lines. I kind of just like finding something that strikes a chord…whether is designer or just a random scrap.

  376. AJ says:

    For most of my sewist life, I relied on cheap chain-store fabrics that just weren’t inspiring at all. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized there was this entire world of designer fabrics out there. Amy Butler’s prints were the first that I fell in love with and so her fabric holds a special place in my heart.

    Now, I’m really digging the Momo. The colors are perfect and the prints are so fun. I’m envisioning a summer full of momo skirts and blouses. If the snow ever stops, that is.

  377. Louisa says:

    I have been hoarding some vintage fabric my mom first used to make me a pair of overalls when I was a toddler. I am going to make some for my first child, when ever that is.

  378. Charlotte says:

    I have just started sewing and absolutely love Heather Ross and her Mendocino collection. How fun all the fabrics are!

  379. Megan says:

    Ever since I saw Mendocino I’ve wanted to get my grubby little hands on it!

  380. angela says:

    I am in love with My Folklore by Lecien. I just love it!

  381. Emilie Ahern says:

    I have just discovered fabric designed by Erin McMorris and I would LOVE to get my hands on some. It is fun and whimsical, but graphic.

    I checked out the book and I would just Loooooove to win it. it seems right up my alley since I love to sew, but if a pattern or project takes too long I get frustrated and stop. I love the little dresses dotting the photo pool and with two red-headed toddler girls, I would love to sew them a collection of handmade goodies from their Mom.

  382. Leslie Newton says:

    I love Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler, and Ikea Fabric. I have a beautiful funky green paisley that I bought on the clearance rack and I am saving it for something extra special.

  383. sherri s. says:

    Love Japanese fabrics in general, but have to concur with many posters here about Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern…feels so breezy and right.

  384. Kindy Lynn says:

    I love any type of vintage kids print or retro print. Sometimes I like to go funky too! It just depends what the project is or what type of mood Im in.

  385. Andrea says:

    Oh, I have totally been kicking myself for not buying more of Denyse Schmidt’s Katie Jump Rope line! It’s just so rare to find a collection where you just love everything!

  386. Camille says:

    My favorite print right now is chameleon pals by Amy Schimler. I made a simple baby blanket for my son with a flannel back and everyone loves the colors and the chameleons!

  387. Amy says:

    Wow, I love bold and graphic, red and black. Katie Jump Rope looks so fun, there were a few like that last week too.

  388. Cathy DeVinney says:

    Curry Kimono Spice! I would love to buy yardage if you could get it!

  389. Hanna says:

    My all-time “special” fabric is an antique/barn animal print from my Grandmother’s stash. I’ve never seen anything like it and I find that it is a special addition to any project for my family. It’s classic yet playful. :)

  390. Kelley says:

    My favorite fabric in my stash is a wonderful gold on red print that looks like fireworks. It’s gorgeous, and I have no idea what it is!

  391. Ellen says:

    Right now I am hoarding Heather Ross Mendocino, the swim class pacific. One of my favorite prints and I just cannot decide what I want to make with it!

  392. Brenda says:

    I love anything Amy Butler!

  393. Emiko says:

    I bought Heather Ross’ Mendocino line when it first came out and I love it. I’m still trying to figure out the perfect sewing project for it. I have the blue/orange combo and the blue/pink/brown combo of colors.

  394. Sylvia says:

    Being relatively new to sewing and seen so many wonderful fabrics that it’s hard to pick a fabric. I love Moda from what I’ve seen, but my local store doesn’t seem to carry it. When I’ve examined my purchases and stash I do find that Michael Miller is a more common pick.

  395. Christa says:

    I’m loving anything soft, pastel and floral. I’m in love with all the fabrics from Shabby Fabrics, especially Aviary….so soft and pretty.

  396. Brooke says:

    I have a Japanese print with the cutest little owls on it. No project ever seems quite “worthy” of it. I do take it out and pet it periodically and then back in the stash it goes!

  397. melissa says:

    heather ross’ lightning bugs fabric. love it!

  398. Lisa says:

    I bought some really pretty black and white fabrics that should be here any day now. I don’t know what I’m going to do with them but they are so pretty I’ll probably just look at them for awhile. :)Lisa

  399. Tina C. says:

    some yards of hello kitty fabric my BF brought back from Japan! I can’t believe he got me that for a gift!! too treasured to cut into, but one day i swear I will make something with it!!!

  400. stacie says:

    I am so new, I haven’t really found a favorite yet! It seems like each great piece of fabric I find, I fall in love with and can’t stop thinking about it, until the next one comes along!

  401. Mandy says:

    Currently cherishing the Michael Miller Andalucia Fabric Collection by Patty Young – I’ve got four yards of beautiful fabric and no idea what I’ll do with it that’s a worthy-enough project. Ideas are welcome!

  402. Jen V says:

    I have been coveting the Hello Betty florals for some time now. I’m trying to keep a balance of new fabric & finished projects so I haven’t ponied up for any yet. I love the muted, dusky tones & retro styling.

  403. Bailey says:

    At the flea market about 6 months ago, I bought a yard of indigo-colored fabric with tiny little dark blue rosettes with creamy white centers. It’s so beautiful that I don’t want to cut it and potentially make a disaster of it. If only I had bought more yards!

  404. gardenymph says:

    My two favorite designers are Anna Maria and Tanya Whelan. I am unable to purchase their fabrics locally, something that saddens me to no end. I would buy some of their fabric every month if only my local quilt shop would carry them!!! I would love love love (keeping my fingers crossed) to win a copy of Weekend Sewing. Making some summer skirts and blouses for myself is something that I have been longing to learn how to do. I have promised myself that this will be the summer that I make some clothes for myself. I have seen so many great ideas coming out of this book.

  405. CIndy says:

    I would have to say–right now–it would be the Michael Miller retro children’s print–blue with the spaceships. I just have a few scraps left from my daughter’s first sewing project–pajama pants. I love the little kids zipping around in their rockets. Maybe because I am in my 50′s and nostalgic—I want to put the bits left in a bib or something but am just sort of hoarding for now.–and I really love these new trends in fabric design–real eye candy–and those sweet japanese animal and story prints.

  406. Katie says:

    I love the West Hill fabric. It reminds me of all of the time I spent as a child playing with my mom’s stacking dolls. I love that Heather Ross combines illustration and sewing. It makes each piece a little more special.

  407. Kelli says:

    I absolutely love the red apple print from Sandi Henderson’s Farmers Market Line. It’s getting hard to find and I just keep buying it up!

  408. julia says:

    mY all-time favorite is Denyse Schmidt’s Katie Jump Rope!! It’s perfect for every project!! I got both the warm and cool fat querter packs for my birthdat last year and I just can’t bear the thought of cutting into it! So, I’m hoarding it!

  409. another amy says:

    So hard to choose! I’m definitely an American Jane gal – love almost anything by Sandy Klop, but I also really love Sandi Henderson’s Farmers Market.

  410. Tanya Barrett says:

    I really enjoy the Tula Pink fabrics!

  411. amanda says:

    Oh, count me in! Right now I am loving Anna Maria’s Good Folks…though I have yet to acquire any. :)

  412. BabkaGal says:

    I love Amy Butler fabrics, epsecially the Daisy Chain line. They’re so cheerful and colorful, and they make even old-fashioned patterns feel modern. I’m also trying to find a bundle of Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy, but I’m not having much luck. Thanks for organizing the giveaway!

  413. christine says:

    I still keep going back to the Shamash and Sons fish fabric that I used to make my daughter a dress. It is so colorful and detailed. I have a 1/2 yard left and I hoarding it! Here is a link to the dress. http://pinkpetunias.typepad.com/.a/6a00e550e0c079883300e5546e48e28834-pi

  414. Michelle says:

    I lurve lurve the Matroyshka dolls fabric! They are all cute though.

  415. jennie vaughn says:

    I love Anna Maria Horner’s fabrics. I’ve never sewed with them but plan to get some soon. I think the summer top from Heather Ross’s book would look great in one of AMH’s bright prints!

  416. mommymae says:

    ack! i can’t pick just one!

    at the moment it is anna maria horner’s good folks. tomorrow it will be something else, i’m sure.

  417. Brittany says:

    I have a print that has tiny green vines with small blue, yellow, and white flowers with red centers that I love. I don’t know anything about it, though. And the book sounds like a lot of fun!

  418. Brooke says:

    I love Alexander Henry. All of them. If I had to choose I would choose the apples and pears and the mocca.

  419. Jennifer says:

    I found this great black fabric with tiny multi-color stripes, overlayed with multi-colored polka dots. I bought all that was left… it’s my FAVORITE, but it’s all gone :(

  420. Courtney says:

    Alexander Henry Apples & Pears Blue Cotton Fabric. I used this to make curtains for the kitchen in my little house. I rent, so I can bring myself to cut up the rest of the fabric because I keep thinking, “What if I have another window when I move? I will want another curtain.”

  421. Carrie says:

    Really my favorite right now is anything black and white. I especially love black and white from Michael Miller. Love it!

  422. Shannon says:

    I love just about all of Alexander Henry fabric! I have some Amy Butler fabric that I haven’t brought myself to cut yet! I guess I’m hoarding it:)

  423. Kat says:

    I would have to say that my favorite fabric of all time is… peonies, part of feedsack I by Windham. So adorable. I bought a yard of it in a quilt shop in Concord, CA while visiting in-laws, and then used it as part of a quilt bee. All of my friends loved it so much I scoured the internet looking for more, I finally found ONE site that had it, and it was only $6 a yard! I bought 4 yards to parcel out as gifts to my lovely quilt bee ladies and to make my own little lady a dress, but I should have bought all they had, who knows if I’ll ever see it again? Lesson learned, if you love a fabric that much, and it’s hard to find, buy all you can afford! You won’t regret it.

  424. Hilary says:

    I was given a piece of Echino fabric with dragonflies and birds and leaves, and I’m so sad that it’s all gone!

  425. margaret says:

    I would say my favorites are floral prints, especially vintage and victorian flolars. I have very little in my stash now as I used it all to make pouches to hold and wash crocheted cotton face scrubs.

  426. Kelly Nelson says:

    I’ve been holding up my dining room re-do for months to find a coordinating fabric to Amy Butler’s Nigella Petal in yellow that I’m using to recover the chairs. I just don’t want to touch it until everything else is in place. At least I’ll get to look at it everyday, then!

  427. katie says:

    Right now, I’m lovin’ those fabrics you posted on this thread!!! ESPECIALLY the one with the Russian nesting dolls. I’m quite easy to please, and often living in the moment! :)

  428. Heidee Lindsey says:

    To pick a favorite is very hard when just walking in a fabric store and taking a deep breathe makes me giddy or maybe high? but I think one on my favs is an older one called Sweet Romance. I don’t know why I love it, it just speaks to me. I have made and given away one quilt made from this line, but the rest is stayin’ home!

  429. Teresa Johnson says:

    Love Nani Iro fabric and Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern and Liberty Tawna Lawn
    And of course anything by Heather Ross or Anna Maria Horner!!

  430. Tabitha says:

    I have a vintage scrap that is lime green, but in that vintage way, not quite. In white with black and brown detailing are several birds on tree limbs. I love it so much that I haven’t been able to sew with it yet. I found it in a grab bag–I have no idea of the line it’s from, but I do treasure it.

  431. Sara R. says:

    Ooh, for me it’s a tie between Mendocino and Katie Jump Rope. I want them all!

  432. Christen says:

    I’ve been coveting any fabric from Amy Butler or Heather Ross- still waiting to find a few extra pennies to make my first purchase!

  433. Jenn says:

    I really like my Anna Maria Horner fabrics and have been keeping them safe.

  434. Katie Lin says:

    There was a suitcase full of vintage fabrics and feedsack that my grandmother gave me about 2 years ago. Unfortunately, I used it all up about a year ago and i’m still lamenting its absence. I’ve kept scraps of each fabric, though, so I can still look back fondly on it all! I so wish I would have hoarded at least SOME of it.

  435. Dyan says:

    My favorite is anything bright and cheery. I like making clothes for my daughter and she looks great in fun prints and bright colors.

  436. Stephanie says:

    I have not been sewing that long, so I don’t have any fabric I’m hoarding…..HOWEVER, I do know about the fab book Weekend Sewing and would sooooooo LOVE to be entered for a chance to win.

  437. Tina says:

    One of my favorite fabrics is something I bought at Britex during a trip last spring. I am hoarding it because I didn’t look at the price per yard before it was cut, and I ended up spending a fortune on it. So now I’m afraid to sew it!

  438. Somer says:

    Heather Ross’ Lightening Bugs and other mysteries. Not only do I love the prints, but the fabric is so soft.

  439. ela says:

    My favorite fabric this year is Kona cotton solid by Kaufman. The reason is that there are so many different colors and you can find the exact color you are thinking of for a project;
    for example, mulberry, pomegranite, and wine for Easter bunnies. Can you still get Ikea hippos and Munki mermaids? Who makes the gnome fabrics and is a VW bus print still available? maybe you can give away more than one book!

  440. Lindsay says:

    I really like Amy Butler’s Charm collection, and I have always regretted not getting the prints when they were available in flannel for something cozy!

  441. Michelle Price says:

    My all time fav is the Amy Butler Full Moon Dot in Red. Love that stuff!

  442. Kelly says:

    I’m a super newbie to sewing and haven’t even been able to buy myself any fabric yet, but I love fabric with little tiny prints, especially for the kids :)

  443. Tiffany says:

    While I cannot say it is my all time favorite, I am “secretly” really really wanting some “Polly goes to Paris,” along with the coordinating bird print. I love the aqua color, but could something with the pink print too!

  444. Robin says:

    Sooo Cool! I’d love to have a spring project to do! Thanks for offering this! Robin

  445. Shelley says:

    I’m adoring (but can never seem to budget for) Amy Butler prints, I love anything she’s got in an Orange shade. I don’t have plans on what I’ll make with it if/when I get my hands on some more, but I’ve already made a checkbook cover that I adore, and get comments on all the time! I love fun, bold prints!

  446. Joanna says:

    I love anything Alexander Henry, but am seriously lamenting missing out on Heather Ross’ Gnome fabric!

  447. Emily Kidd says:

    I am coveting the Wonderland collection by MoMo, especially Tweedle Dum Sugar! It looks like the perfect fabric for a new spring skirt!

  448. Chris says:

    Oh, this book looks SO lovely! I can’t wait to get my hands on it. My favorite collection is actually a tie between Heather’s Mendicino Line (those octopi!!!) and Amy Butler’s August Fields. Thanks for the chance to win.

  449. Karen O says:

    I really like Erin McMannis designs, especially the Urban Gardens and Park Slope collections.
    Great giveaway!
    Karen

  450. April says:

    I don’t have a favorite, though I have been loving any design lately that has lots of circles in it. I have been coveting some Alexander Henry fabric… doesn’t matter what collection.

  451. Brie says:

    Heather Bailey’s Peonies (ivory), definitely! I saw this fabric at my local quilt shop and went back to visit the bolt a few times (fabric courting) before I finally just decided to buy some and cover a bulletin board with it so I can look at it all day while I work…. sigh…! So beautiful!

  452. Martha says:

    It would be hard to name my favorite print (they ALL are), but since I REALLY would like Weekend Sewing, I will tell you my favorite Heather Ross collection is Mendocino. I have made aprons with it, placemats, and napkins. I love those little mermaid and squid!

  453. Kara says:

    I’m lamenting Lightening Bugs….the goldfish, the bicycles, the campers, the polka dots that go with it…..sniff sniff…..it would look so cute in the room my son and daughter now share!

  454. Deborah says:

    I am so glad you are restocking some of the old favorites. I love Katies Jump Rope and plan on purchasing in the near future. I have been hording the Heather Ross Volkswagon Van fabric in blue. I have 1.5 yards and can’t make up my mind how to use it knowing that it is gone! Maybe a shirt for my grandson, maybe something for me! Such decisions.

  455. Nichole says:

    I am a huge Moda fan…I think its impossible to pick one favorite, but I am longing for the new ikoi collection.

  456. Lynnette says:

    Oh my! I am coveting the cherry prints ~ metro market. An image of sitting under a shade tree in the summer with a top with cherries on it just seems delightful. One day.

  457. Meghan says:

    My favorite is the blue zoo fabric by Alexander Henry

  458. Alison says:

    I have a stash of batiks waiting for the day when I make a king size quilt. But for garments (and I’m wanting a nice spring skirt) I love the pretty prints you carry.

  459. Sian says:

    As of now I am coveting that Heather Ross fabric with the nesting dolls. It’s darling!

  460. Shanna says:

    I love anything by Anna Maria Horner. Her fabrics are so beautiful and vibrant. Individually they are lovely but when combined together they are spectacular.

  461. Jill Bean says:

    I love love love the fish. So fabulous!!

  462. Jessica T says:

    I bought a couple yards of this vintage print of very colourful birds (wild 60s colours) from a quilt shop down the street from us. I made the cutest curtain for our kitchen with part of it but am loathe to cut into the rest of it.

  463. Samantha says:

    I’m majorly coveting Darla by Tanya Whelan. That collection isn’t calling my name–it’s screaming it. :-)

  464. knitteresq says:

    I love Liberty of London Tana Lawn!!!

  465. Carrie says:

    I’m loving the minny miu from Lecien. I will have it.

  466. Melinda Johnson says:

    I covet the Mendocino prints! I need me some fabric with octopi on it :P

  467. Lib says:

    Ooooh, that book looks fabulous!

  468. Amber says:

    My favorite fabric has to be Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room – the Sketchbook print. I have long curtains in my living room out of it and I love them.
    I also wish I had kept some of the goldish by Heather Ross – they were so cute!

  469. kelly says:

    wow it’s so hard to decide, but my favorite is the “Sweet by Urban Chiks” collection. I really like the peeps designs. I could use them in so many different projects, but right now I’ve been wanted to do some sewing for the baby due this spring.

  470. Megan says:

    I love Heather Ross’ Mendocino line. So cute!

  471. Susan says:

    I found an embroidered denim in a thrift shop that I fell in love with, and I’m saving it for the perfect project . . . just haven’t decided what that is yet!

  472. tara reeves says:

    i have 1 gorgeous fat quarters with tiny little apples in rows all along it and stripes between them…they’re in dull autumn colours and it’s been lieing around for years. It’s in my liberty fabrics pile (favourites) because i have no idea where it came from! it needs a project!

    I’ve also just started buying handmade, falling apart dresses from vintage fairs and giving them a new lease of life! Its wonderful to wear something you know you put a lot of effort into. Hence, i have come across a passion to start making clothes! Heathers book would be wonderful for ideas and projects.

  473. Harley says:

    My current favorite fabric right now is Joel Dewberry’s Woodgrain Fabric. LOVE it!! :D

  474. mary grace says:

    i’m loving Anna Maria Horner’s new line right now. The colors are so bright & colorful–just what I need when the weather’s been do dreary! :) Of course, the Weekend Sewing book would help tremendously as well! Here’s hoping I win :)

  475. Michelle says:

    I have a vintage (well, early 70′s) piece of white eyelet fabric printed with purple violets and olive green leaves. I found it pre-cut into a doll’s dress and folded in a pattern envelope my mom sent me in a box of old craft supplies. It’s not the prettiest fabric, or the most useful, but it’s one tangible link to my childhood and all the doll clothes and Barbie dresses my mom sewed. We were a military family, and not savers at all, so all the other hand-made items from my youth are long passed on to other little girls.

  476. Lacey says:

    An old friend of mine told me about a “hole in the wall” fabric store that sells only vintage fabrics. It’s a warehouse full of more than anyone can ever take in, plus, they tell me the have a “REAL” warehouse piled high as well. There is no rhyme or reason, or order that’s easy to follow, but that’s the adventure. & it’s the type of place you’ll need to wash your fabric twice before you sew, once for the shrinking, again for the smell ;) The prints are the kind of fabric no project is ever good enough for.

  477. Trina says:

    I love anything Heather Ross. How could you not? My all time favorite, though, is the VW vans.

  478. megan says:

    I love any soft fabric in gingham or polka dots!

  479. Debbie says:

    While I love Amy Butler fabrics, the fabric that I am hoarding is the farm scene blocks from American Jane “Peas & Carrots”. When I was young, I had a favorite book with the same pictures as the fabric; I still have the book and the pictures are so sweet and bring back memories of my Mother reading to me. I just can’t bring myself to use this fabric!

  480. Tamara (AK) says:

    Calicos are my downfall usually…but I kind of have eclectic taste so I can pretty much find a favorite every time I go to the fabric store! LOL

    Thanks for another great giveaway!

  481. katie says:

    Katie Jump Rope is one of my favs right now . . . but there are more more more wonderful prints to say this is the top one. I just love fabric. Oh, and I always must have red with white polka dots. And it seems hard to find for some reason.

  482. Loralynn says:

    I love the new (to me) Alexander Henry Spring Showers fabric. So cute!

  483. tricia says:

    Right now I am hoarding Amy Butler’s Optic Blossom in Aqua. I love it and I want to make a blouse with it for the summer but I can’t bring myself to cut it up:)

  484. catherine says:

    I used several yards of a shirt-weight white cotton with old-fashioned embroidery stripes on it for a simple table cloth. I wish I had yards more of it. I would make a sundress with layers and layers of it for the skirt. The fabric is so soft and clean feeling. Oh, I can see a sweet little girl swinging on a tree swing and barefoot wearing a dress like that.

  485. CHARLIE says:

    I’m still creating my stash. (very new to sewing but fell in love with it) Currently, I have two prints that I just love. One is a Japanese print that has tiny dots and lines. The detailing and spacing of the fabrics is very thoughtful. The colors are bright but not clownish. Very designerly. Also I recently purchased some fabric from a crafter who was sell her stash and found a few out of print Art Nouveau fabrics. I love them because they are so different from todays patterns. The patterns are detailed just right not too simple but not too complicated. The colors are inviting earthy tone palette with a soft spring feel that’s not hard hitting. The overall combination is inviting and unique. A fabric you can live with for many years. Not sure what I’ll make with it, Still pondering.

  486. Cayce says:

    I love a wide variety of fabrics. Lately I am in love with spring flowers and Alexander Henry.

  487. Melissa says:

    I’ve never paid much attention to the names of the fabrics, so I’m at a loss here. I will say, however, that ALL the fabrics on today’s FFF are gorgeous…but I like Katie Jump Rope the best. I’m usually inspired by simple, minimalistic prints. Too much going on, and I’m overwhelmed.
    Thanks! Have a great weekend, yourself!

  488. Esther says:

    My favorite fabric is the uptown paint by number birds by erin michael for moda- I’m hoarding what I have, afraid to cut into it, because once it’s gone, it’s gone!
    maumauisginger(at)gmail(dot)com

  489. Keilah says:

    I have a fat quarter of fabric my great grandma gave me. I have to find something special for it.

  490. Donna says:

    I’m currently coveting the Moda Hello Betty in Retro colourway. I saw it on someone’s blog and I am thinking about it all the time!!

  491. Amanda says:

    I love A.Henry’s Countdown. Love it.
    Oh and this book? I was the first to get it when it came in from the library. I’m going to be a rebel and keep it past the due date. I really, really want my own copy!!

  492. Trina says:

    Now I know who makes it! The seahorse fabric from Heather Ross! I’ve seen it in the aqua/orange and in the orange/aqua, and I feel I must have both!

    I am also on the lookout for the Free Spirit Robots/Rockets line, and I don’t even have any kids! It is just so darned cute.

  493. Linnea says:

    Anything designed by Lara Cameron! She makes the most beautiful hand screened fabrics. My absolute favorite has to be her small birch forest design with little birds sitting on the branches. The fabrics are a tad expensive and put a large dent in my student budget but I just can’t resist.
    For the more affordable stuff…I’m really loving the Katie Jump Rope line.

  494. melanie says:

    I don’t know the name of the fabric I am hoarding – I bought it years ago in S.F. and it is some japanese designer. However – I am currently LOVING the Katie Jump Rope and the Mendacino.

  495. debbie says:

    Love the Japanese inspired prints and the Matryoshka print is adorable and love most Amy Butler prints as well:)

  496. Sara says:

    I am just discovering this Anna Maria Horner and her fabrics. They are wonderful – and so bright! She is fast becoming a favorite of mine….

  497. Lisa says:

    I can’t wait to get Wonderland by MoMo! Too Cute!

  498. Anna Maschke says:

    I love Anna Maria Horner fabrics, but I wish I had some of her Chocolate Lollipop. Alas, I didn’t start sewing again until after that was discontinued.

  499. Emilie says:

    Well, thanks to you, now I’m coveting Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt. It would make such cute little toys!

  500. Mirza Marim says:

    I have some Michael Miller Dysfunctional Family. I bought it from two different places a couples of years ago when it was no longer available. One piece I used for an Amy Butler Nappy Bag. The other piece (3 yards) and the scraps from the diaper bag project I have but not sure what to make with it. The print always makes me laugh when I look at it. Not sure what to do with the rest. Always looking for inspiration though!

  501. allison says:

    heather ross’ goldfish

  502. Kara says:

    I’m going to have to go with two all time favorites. I love the Dick and Jane collection from Michael Miller. I have bought a ton of it, but I still wince everytime I cut into a piece and think, “Oh no, what if I run out?” I also LOVE Anna Maria Horner’s Waltz Gold ~ Garden Party. I have several yards, and I haven’t made anything from it yet, but I think it would make such a cute little girl’s dress.

  503. karen says:

    I love the sugar snap fabric. Thanks for the chance to win!

  504. Adrienne says:

    I have a piece of vintage fabric that I have been hoarding for 2 years. My mom found it at a flea market and I have no idea who/what it is. Finally cut it up this weekend for a project. It turned out great, by the way!

  505. sandyandcosmo says:

    My favorite is the Heather Ross print with the red bicycles. Love it!

  506. Ghi says:

    Right now I’m hoarding “juicy” by Alexander Henry =)!!

  507. Allysha says:

    I’m a big fan of the Chloe’s Closet line right now. My sister and I made fabric totes using some of these and they turned out great!

  508. Kristen says:

    I am new to the fabric scene, so I can’t say that I have an absolute favorite, but I was at the fabric store one day and had to have this fabric and I won’t cut into it yet it is Come Quilt with Me by Pat Yamin. I truly love a lot of things though.

  509. Eileen says:

    Denise Schmidts Flea Market Fancy. I snatch it up whenever I see it- all colors!

  510. jessica m says:

    I’m with Helly. The Lecien My Folklore in Chocolate Brown colors is just so wonderful. I want to make my daughter an entire wardrobe out of it! As of now I only have a yard or so of one of the fabrics…but payday is just aroud teh corner!!!As for the giveaway, I’ve been coveting the Goodfolks line since the day it came out! Gorgeous, bold, colorful. Wonderful!

  511. Amanda says:

    I wish I had a little girl soemtimes so I could make her sundresses. Heck, maybe i’ll just make some for me with these prints! LOVE the book.

  512. Eve says:

    Oh, definitely Ginseng by Joel Dewberry. I have an entire uncut bolt of the chocolate woodgrain I’m hording, that’s how much I love it.

  513. Stephanie says:

    No wonder I can’t find HR gnomes, bikes, or goldfish… everyone here is looking for and lamenting them too!! :) C’mon, Heather, bring ‘em back!!! PLEASE!!

  514. Sarah says:

    I’m a huge Amy Butler girl…I think that her Belle or Lotus collection were my faves. I’ll go with Lotus. Everything she makes is a dream!

  515. That Geek Chic says:

    I always look for “new products” in your store and my current love is Tweedle Dum Jam ~ Wonderland. I cant wait to get it and sew skrits, handbags summer shrug my be….
    thanks for such a wonderful online shop.

    -thatgeekchic

  516. Stacie says:

    I really really really love the mermaid print….

  517. Carolyn says:

    Really, just one? Probably Heather Bailey’s Freshcut. Oh but I also just love all things Joel Dewberry. I’m so excited about Heather’s book. Pick me! Pick me! :)

  518. Annette W says:

    I still enjoy the colors and fabrics from the first quilt I made…lavendars and greens. I still have some scraps too!

  519. Cinnamon says:

    I like a lot of Alexander Henry prints, and I’ve been coveting Heather’s Ross’ new line. I think it’s called Fantasy or Fairytale. I want some to make up some clothes for my daughter.

  520. Sherri says:

    I really love the Black and White Fabrics designed by Mark Lipinski.

  521. carrie says:

    I love the old Marimekko prints, I’m hoarding some that I found at a garage sale.

  522. beverly says:

    I have an adorable strawberry print by Alexander Henry. I plan to make a spring skirt for my daughter. Not only does it have big strawberries on it, but also polka dots! Who could ask for more!

  523. Ellen says:

    I love Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern in Aqua. So covet the martini with the blue and green! I also love Alexander Henry 2-D zoo for kids prints.

  524. Kristen says:

    I love the new Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner collection up there. I want to buy them all, heap them up and jump into it like a pile of leaves (much cleaner and no possibility of bugs).

  525. Melissa says:

    I am still hoarding the Kokka Robot fabric!

  526. Erin says:

    Oh – I also love that japanese robot fabric. My son had a pair of pj’s made from it and I would love to find it again to make him a bigger pair!

    I also really love some of the Joel Dewberry prints….

    Right now I’m looking for some beautiful upholstery fabric to recover my sectional!

  527. shellie says:

    I love just about EVERYTHING and ANYTHING from Alexander Henry! Fabulous.

  528. Stacey says:

    I love anything Amy Butler. She inspires me.

  529. Carla says:

    Looks like a nice book. I’ve been saving a piece of Oriental fabric for 10 years. I’m just going to have to use it someday!

  530. jen w says:

    i love love love the katie jump rope fabric and anything vintage-y, new or old:)

  531. Teresa says:

    my all time favorite is the rain drop stripe from alexander henry. i have a very small amount that i’m saving for the “perfect” project.

  532. Cami Paul says:

    I love Clothesline by Zimmerman for Kauffman. I think they are great for the baby quilts I’ve been making for friends. The retro line is so fun. It can look really cutesy and babyish or funky and fun. I’ve really enjoyed using it.

  533. jackie bonette says:

    i would love to find some of alexander henry’s colourful countdown fabric….i think it has been out of print for awhile now though. love so many of his prints!

  534. Melissa says:

    I would have to say the lightening bug series by heather ross, I just loved it, bought yards of it, had no idea what to do with it but I needed it. Also the other one by Heather Ross with the garden gnomes on it or the bicycles and vw van. I also love amy butler, and there is a timeless treasures gingko that I am over the moon for. Also, Ava Rose by Tanya Whelan. Love love love it.

  535. Kirsten says:

    Right now I am coveting Amy Butlers new August Fields. I sooo want to make the duvet cover she has on her free patterns.

  536. Beth says:

    Loving Moda’s American Jane and Wonderland right now. Fabric is really so exciting!

  537. allie says:

    I love all things Amy Butler and drool over the computer when I start looking :)

  538. michelle says:

    I love all Amy Butler fabrics, but rarely buy them because I never want to cut them – I just want to look at them!

  539. ingrid says:

    I have a lovely piece of silk with a print on it…maybe Japanese. i bought it about a 12 years ago at a yard sale from a women that was moving back to Hawaii. any ideas i have for using it never seem to do the beauty of the fabric justice.

  540. kristine hanson says:

    I got into all the cool designer fabrics just recently and am SO bummed I missed out on the cute gnome fabric by Heather Ross, I would love even a fat quarter!!

  541. Kati says:

    I’ve been coveting Good Folks since I first saw it, but haven’t been able to buy any – my favorite is that pink, brown, and orange floral – man, it’s beautiful!!!!

  542. Nancey says:

    Ok, my fave that I never seem to bring myself to purchase is Amy Butler’s Lotus Wallflower, in all the colorways. I don’t know what it is, but every time I see something someone made out of it, I start drooling.

  543. Jyl says:

    I love love love amy butler. The colors are always so vibrant and I love her patterns. I just can’t part with her fabric. I always end up keeping whatever it is I make with it.

  544. naomig says:

    I wish I could afford more designer prints. I love anything Alexander Henry and anything Amy Butler. I currently have amy butler Paisley Lotus Star in apricot, I’m trying to figure out what to use it for so I can enjoy it for a good long while. I wish Amy Butler would make some of her prints in flannels, they’d make the most gorgeous rag quilts ever.

  545. Celeste says:

    Japanese prints are always my favorites. I have an indigo juvenile print of dragons in a crepe fabric that I particularly love. I also covet the japanese juvenile prints on linen. So yummy!

  546. Lauranie says:

    Right now I am looking at the Katie Jump Rope! I’m going to check it out. I really like it all, it changes with the weather and my mood! I like embroiered linens and patchwork denim. I like feed sack and french terry. I love polka dots on little girls and striped seersucker for little boys.

  547. Wendy says:

    I’ve stocked up on several of the Michael Miller children’s cowboy prints. I’ve only cut into one, to start a quilt.

  548. Lorian Rivers says:

    absolutely crazy over Kaffe Fasset big florals!

  549. Sarah Richer says:

    Well up until this morning I was loving Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern Collection, but thanks to this most recent post, I am now coveting the Darla collection. (apparently I’m very fickle and not just a little easily led…)

  550. Rebecca says:

    I think my favorite collection has to be ginger blossom by sandi hendersen (it helps that I have little girls though!). I have been saving a stack of the blue/green colorway and pouring over patterns and just want to make sure I have the right project picked out before I cut into those beautiful prints. :)

  551. Carrie McG says:

    I have a red with white polka dots… not sure of the designer, but I bought a couple yards a year or so ago and have tried to incorporate it in just about every project I’ve made. There’s just something about it I love. I’ve really been eyeing that Mendicino line though… need to get me some of that! ha!

  552. Kathy says:

    I am still coveting the Lizzy Dish by Elizabeth House. As soon as this 80% payroll goes back to 100% I’m buying yards of it!

  553. Heidi says:

    I love the Katie Jump Rope collection…parts of it remind me of my dad’s ties from the 70′s and 80′s. :) I’m happy to see it in stock again.

  554. Kimber says:

    I have so many favorite fabrics that I’m afraid to cut! Some Heather Ross bicycles, some Pop Garden prints, a gorgeous yellow and white from the Taxi collection …

  555. jodi degeorge says:

    Well, when I started quilting ,I looked for calicos (I naively thought that was the ONLY fabric you were allowed to use-my quilt books were a bit outdated!), then I absolutely fell in love with vintage feedsack prints for my projects. For the last few years I have been completely infatuated with Robyn Pandolph and all of her lovely romantic florals. They are old fashioned, yet with a modern twist that just works. I am thankful for the internet, it makes it so easy to have so many different fabrics available!

  556. Laurie says:

    Love the Katie Jump Rope series…..

  557. Deanne says:

    I am very partial to mod paisleys. Amy Butler had a line that had some paisleys in it that I loved. I used the selvege edge of all three pieces, though and have no clue what line they were in. None of the currently available lines, for sure. The one is greens, another is blues with yellow I think, and then my favorite was pinks with orange!

  558. Jessica says:

    I know they aren’t the best to buy fabric from – but I love this one black on black fabric I got from Walmart. I used it for the pocket on my version of the Buttercup bag and I think it looks really sharp!

    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3465/3353100918_d2dfb9ffae.jpg

  559. Jodie says:

    My current favorite is a fuchsia floral fabric that I got on clearance at a big box store for less than $3/yard. I’m using every scrap of it in a twin-sized quilt for my daughter, which is almost done. I love the quilt, but I have to say I am a little sad to see this fabric is no longer in my stash.

    I’m crossing my fingers to win the Weekend Sewing book… I’ve got this on my birthday “wish list” and hope I win it here a bit early. : )

  560. Annette says:

    I love 1930s fabrics and tone on tone fabrics. May sound boring, but I find them calming andfun to work with. We cannot buy manyofthese ranges here in New Zealand,but I try to find many sorted fabrics for my collection. I have err had a wardrobe stacking shelf full of fabrics I have been collecting, but is fell off – ripped under the weight LOL

    One cannot have too many fabrics!

  561. shannon says:

    My favorite all time fabric is Heather Ross’ gnomes. I have a couple of yards of the gnome on the blue background. I never did get any of the yellow background and I wish I had. I also love the Amy Butler Lotus Full Moon dot in every color.

  562. monica says:

    I’m new to sewing too but have always loved Amy Butler’s fabric. But there are lots of other pretty ones from many designers to choose from. I am hoarding some Mendocino right now.

  563. Melissa says:

    I love the Heather Ross stuff, especially the entire Mendocino collection and the pink one with tadpoles in a jar. I don’t have any, but I look at it online everyday!

  564. Karmela says:

    I spent an arm and a leg on the first Paint by Numbers fat quarter collection by Erin Michaels, you know, the one with the birds. I LOVE that collection. I couldn’t bring myself to even untie the collection so I bought another and have been sparingly using that one. The original is still sitting all pretty on my shelf. and I’ve been pretty sparing with whatever yardage I have from that collection as well. I don’t know what I’m saving them for, but I certainly can’t bring myself to use ‘em. not yet…

  565. Maria says:

    I love all the Chloe’s Closet fabrics. The colors are what I’m always attracted to.

  566. Scubagoose says:

    I have this brown fabric with teeny tiny floral print. I think it got passed down from my grandmother to my mom and then to me in a box of old curtains and stuff when i was still learning to sew. I hated it at first, but now i love how retro it is, and the small print is great for making things for my DD. Only the cutest of projects get it!

  567. melissa p. says:

    my current favorite stash (while the whole thing is a cumulative stash, it can easily be broken down into mini-stashes) is mixed with japanese prints and assorted “all american” types of christmas prints. hopefully, they will all be combined by june or july for a great christmas quilt!

  568. Limor says:

    My favorite print is sitting in my collection right now. I picked it up at a thrift shop a couple of months ago. I think that it’s from the 70′s. It has large, colorful fruits and veggies printed on a brown background. I’m dying to use it but I’m scared to death at the same time. If I make a clothing item from it, I want to make sure that it’ll be something that I wear a lot. Maybe I should make a bag or use it in a quilt.

  569. Julie says:

    I haven’t been sewing long enough to really have a favorite fabric, yet. However, I really like the Kate Jump Rope set. I have been reading a lot of blog reviews about this book and really would love to get my hands on a copy. Thanks.

  570. Karen says:

    I haven’t seen Heather’s new book yet, but I’m hoping she’ll put a shop in Denver on our “tour” list! I love all her fabrics, especially Mendocino.

  571. Debbie says:

    I love everything Amy Butler. Her fabrics and patterns are so beautiful. I recently made the birdie sling bag and everyone comments on it.

  572. Erin says:

    I love Tina Givens Treetop Fancy and Heather Ross Lightning Bugs and Mendocino – and Iong for all of the Flea Market Fancy fabrics and the Katie Jump Rope fabrics –

    oh….and Robots by David Walker is just wonderful……

  573. Jenny says:

    It’s hard to pick an all-time favorite because what I like seems to change by mood and project. I’m really liking the Anna Griffin Riley collection right now. I’m just not sure if I could get away with a monkey skirt at my age, or if I’d have to settle on enjoying its cuteness vicariously through my kids.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    ~Jenny~

  574. Tara says:

    Oh I have a few that I’m hoarding, but I’m really bad about the Medocino collection by Heather Ross. I keep wanting to make something with it, but I can’t bring myself quite yet. :)

  575. Valerie says:

    I’ve never met an Alexander Henry print I didn’t love, it’s soooo difficult to cut into them because I just want to keep them forever!

  576. Jessica says:

    I am hoarding Heather Ross’s pink bikes like nobody’s business. One day if I have a daughter she’ll sport something made out of it for sure!

  577. A few years ago I purchased a few yards of the Munki Mermaids and, after making a skirt, a small card case, and a blouse, I still had a few narrow bits left over. But I love this fabric so much–the colors, the design, the weight, the soft finish–and I am keeping these last bits until they find their way into a small project.

  578. knittin mama says:

    I don’t have a big stash as yet – most of it is thrifted fabrics, I really like Kaffe Fasset prints and many of the Alexander Henry prints, though and hope to be able to afford some of those, soon.

  579. Becca B says:

    Oh my goodness! I have to CHOOSE? That would be the hardest part of actually winning this thing. I’d have to pick one!!! The prospect is thrilling and daunting at the same time. I really like the Patricia Bravo collection you have right now… and anything with little flowers… and I love stripes… Oh joy! I do know that the book you’re giving away would be ROCKING AWESOME!

  580. Tracy says:

    mmmmm I am hoarding 3 yards of Urban Chicks 1974 Bohemian print. I want so badly to make a skirt out of it but I am afraid of not being able find more!

  581. Leah says:

    Wow – I don’t really think in terms of fabric collection. I actually usually just by for specific projects. But, I do have a small piece of fabric, grey-ish background with big orange flowers on it, waiting for the right project. And, if I were going to randomly by fabric, it would be the Matrioshka dolls.

  582. Monica says:

    I am making a quilt using Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden and Bijoux collections. Pop Garden is my favorite. Every time I look at it, I just smile so big. The colors are so light and bright and cheery. It just makes me happy. I have some extra of my back which was Paisley-Blue in the Pop Garden collection. So I am excited to have a a little extra of that to make something else with.

  583. Donna says:

    I love fabric, all my fabric. But have to say the one i have saved for that special place is my Tulia Pink Flutteryby collection I would love to win the book or any of these great fabrics. I have heard you talk so highly of this book that if I don’t win it, I’ll just have to purchase it.

  584. Del says:

    My favorite print(s) are vintage men’s pajama print fabrics, found in a secondhand store, I use them in tiny increments in my projects, hoping to make them last!

  585. Lisa says:

    My fave has to be the Dick and Jane fabric we used to make my daughter’s crib bedding :)

  586. edina says:

    Years ago, I purchased just enough turquoise paisley Amy Butler fabric to make one of her bags. This was before I knew that fabric designs are not produced indefinitely. I ended up giving the completed bag away and when I tried to buy more of the fabric which I adored, it had already been discontinued. It’s silly but I STILL pine for that fabric!

  587. Splomo says:

    I love the yellow Tadpoles of West Hill, and Giant Octopus of Mendocino, and most everything in Katie Jump Rope, but my current passion is Tula Pink’s newest collection, called Neptune. Coral, aqua, kelp and navy never looked so good together, and the prints are dreamlike.

  588. Sarah says:

    I’m new to sewing so I don’t have much of a stash yet & I’m coveting everything! I especially like modern prints though :)

  589. Rebecca says:

    Amy Butler Lotus. Sew beautiful!

  590. Alison says:

    At this moment I am SO excited about making a tote bag and a handbag from Kokka School Yard Friends. I am going to use every last bit I bought! It’s hard to pick an all-time favorite though.

  591. Andrea Methvin says:

    I’d have to say Jennifer Paganelli Flower Power-I just LOVE it.

  592. Katie says:

    I have a couple of fat quarters of some Amy Butler that I absolutely love–one of these days I might actually use them in a project! I have been coveting anything in the Good Folks line, though. The colors are just so happy!

  593. sarah says:

    Heather Ross and Denyse Schmidt are both my favorites. Right now, I think Patchwork Promenade by Denyse is my favorite, followed closely by Heather’s new Far Far Away line!

  594. Lately I have been loving Snow Flower by Dena Designs. The birds are fantastic!

  595. Katie says:

    I really love Heather Bailey’s fabric. That’s what I made my soon to be born baby’s quilt out of. I loved the bright colours! I wish I had more to hoard!

  596. Betsy D says:

    I love anything with polka dots or stripes! It adds flair to just about anything.

  597. Susan says:

    I love Michael Millers Retro Rockets. I’ve got some just waiting for a special project. I just haven’t found it yet!

  598. Tracy M says:

    I am so excited about that book! Even if I don’t win, I will still definitely buy it.

  599. Michele says:

    Anything Amy Butler…but I adore her Midwest Modern 2 line. If I had enough money I buy every fabric she designed! My waredrobe and house would be beautiful :-)

  600. Aimee says:

    I’m just really getting into sewing and learning about all the wonderful fabrics and their amazing designers. I love seeing what everyone is doing with their Flea Market Fancy and I’m a little sad that I’ve pretty much missed out on getting some. I’m glad to see Katie Jump Rope in your shop!

  601. Hannah says:

    I’ve been hanging on to this IKEA red fabric with hippos printed on it, waiting for the perfect project for my daughter. And two old linen pillowcases that are destined to become something even lovlier…maybe something in “Weekend Sewing”!

  602. Christa says:

    Would love both the fabric and the book!

  603. Kathy says:

    I do love all of Amy Butler’s fabric, and I really do try to use it all up, even the little tiny pieces for patching, doll scarves, bookmarks. My special favorite is the midwest modern collection the martini print. It’s looks very retro to me. love it. Her bluey, greens really mesh with my idea of what a bluey green should look like.

  604. Korbi says:

    Michael Miller Dick and Jane line HANDS DOWN!!!

  605. Jane says:

    I have a favourite Japanese fabric I have been saving since 1999. I am just waiting for the right project. Maybe a Weekend Project? I’d love to win this book it sounds so………… great

  606. Barb says:

    I’ve just discovered Heather Ross (a little late to the party, but at least I got there!) and I especially like her West Hill collection. I’d love to win her book!

  607. marissa says:

    Aviary was some of the first fabric I coveted & sewed with. Reminds me of starting a new wonderful hobby!

  608. lesley says:

    i know i’m not alone in saying i LOVE mendocino, it speaks to me! i’m also a huge fan of the park slope birds and pebbles. and i’m hoarding a japanese tree print that i can’t seem to find in my fave colorway.
    [http://sewmamasew.com/?p=714] i need more!

  609. Just Lovely says:

    I like modern and novelty prints from Kauffman and Alexander Henry. I’m also a bit enthralled with Japanese fabrics especially the ones depicting fairy tales.

  610. Nikki says:

    I think my faves change from time to time, but for a while it’s been Anna Maria Horner’s garden party. It is so bright and cheerful. And I’m so ready for spring :)

  611. Kelli says:

    I’m a newbie to this sewing thing, so I don’t have a lotta fabric. I’ve purchased some – mostly Alexander Henry and Amy Butler. I’ve been indecisive as to what to use them for, b/c I really like them and want to make sure I use them for something special. So of course, they continue to sit in my stash just waiting … calling to be sewn into something.

  612. Laura says:

    Amy Butler is my all time favorite designer. I love all her fabric. Right now I’m using the August Fields collection to decorate my kitchen!

  613. marisa says:

    I covet all things Amy Butler. Especially her lines from Free Spirit – I’m afraid to cut them!

  614. daniela says:

    the babushka fabric is gorgeous, i just got one yard last week, but would not mind getting one more!

  615. Julie says:

    Oh boy, too many to choose from. Usually whatever I just bought is my favorite. The new Mary Engelbreit for Moda is my current obsession.

  616. Jenn says:

    I love the Spotted Owls by Alexander Henry.

  617. Angel says:

    I don’t know if I could pick just one…I do find that I am drawn to the Amy Butler and Heather Ross collections.

  618. Fiona says:

    Would love a copy of this book!

  619. Lynn says:

    I have an old bedspread of my grandmother’s that I would love to use for something but I am hoarding it. I am new at sewing and I don’t want to ruin it until I know what I am doing!

  620. Erin says:

    I love Heather Bailey’s Freshcut, but there are lots of other gorgeous fabrics too. Really we’re spoiled for choice these days.
    I’m coveting Michael Miller’s Bot Camp. So nice to see something for BOYS.

  621. Sarah says:

    I don’t have much of a stash yet, so I’m not hoarding anything. But I’ve have been coveting plenty! I really love all of the Heather Ross prints (the tadpoles are especially adorable). And I am definitely coveting that book!

  622. Stacy says:

    I am holding on to Heather Ross’ prints of VW bus camping and some goldfish fabric from her Fireflies line. I love it and wish I had bolts more of it :)

  623. Nichole says:

    My all-time favorite is Amy Butler Full Moon Dots in lime. It just seems to compliment everything! I will be sad when it is no longer available. Until then, I will continue to buy it up! Thanks for the giveaway.

  624. Rachel says:

    I got some name brand fabric for the first time a few weeks ago. It is moda Charisma charm pack. I really want to make something out of it, but I don’t want to cut it!

  625. Alexandra says:

    I am crazy over Amy Butlers Daisy Chain Aquatic series – especially loving Wildflowers in navy!!

  626. celia says:

    metro green goes blue by michael miller

  627. renee says:

    i’ve definately held on to my heather ross prints and keeping them for projects with longevity (quilts etc) instead of smaller projects. I have such a hard time cutting into these. I do the same with a few of my vintage finds. Can’t wait to see her book!

  628. Liz B says:

    I have a fat quarter that I am in love with and will likely never use because it is so beautiful. It is a cream background with giant roses in beautiful shades of pink, with olive green leaves. I purchased it at my local surplus and salvage store, and their fat quarters are cut from remnants and bolt ends. I never saw the fabric on the bolt before finding the fat quarter (59 cents), so I have no idea the designer. I will probably save it until I have an opportunity to use it fully intact for a piece of wall-art.

  629. kate says:

    I have to say that Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks is some of my favorite EVER! I’m almost afraid to cut into it, but I’m going to force myself to do so this weekend to make some skirts for Spring (!) and a bag. I also adore (and am hoarding) Heather Ross’s camper-van fabric. So adorable.

  630. Amie W says:

    I love all of my old retro 70′s look prints. I have made some pretty cool aprons from those prints.

  631. Denise Banker says:

    I am coventing Amy Butler fabrics.
    I am living overseas and good cottons are hard to get.
    I do get mail in the states, so if I Win, please,please, you can still send it stateside.

  632. Amy says:

    I love the damask prints that Amy Butler sneaks into her fabric lines. Mmm…

  633. Darci says:

    I am hoarding my Alexander Henry’s Entertaining Elephants……I just love them and I am scared to use them. I would hoard AMH Good folks is I had any of it….I have been salivating over it.

  634. Lorrie says:

    Ooh, choosing a favourite fabric would be like choosing a favourite child. I love them all – But my preference for a moment depends on my mood! I love Anna Maria Horner’s collections, and Heather Bailey’s. I think I’m craving colour and pattern!

    Lorrie

  635. Whistlepea says:

    I’ve actually been coveting Darla and Jumprope for ages now and just last night I was mooning over it on SMS. I also love My Folklore.

  636. Amy Hodge says:

    I have a big piece of Heather Bailey’s Groovy in the orange/green colorway from her Fresh Cut line that I have totally been hoarding. Some day I’ll find a project worthy of it!

  637. Jennifer says:

    I’m loving Mendocino and Amy Butler’s Morning Glory, but I’m still fairly new at sewing and I am kind of afraid of buying such beautiful fabrics and making a mess of them. :)

  638. m says:

    don’t know the name but it’s this gorgeous cotton lycra twill that is turquoise with orange/brown/green flowers. I was hoarding it for a skirt but can’t decide between that and couch pillows.

  639. Crys says:

    My mother-in-law gave me a huge box of old fabrics last year when she bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas. The fabrics had belonged to her mother and many of them were used to curtains, bed linens, and other decorative house items for my husband’s grandmother’s, mother’s, and his many aunts, and uncle’s homes. This year we moved several hours away and it has been nice being able to make things with the fabrics that have surround our family while we were making so many happy memories.

  640. Sarah says:

    I’m starting to fall in love with batiks. Of course, I also really like 30s reproductions. Heck, I like all fabric these days!

  641. Jennifer says:

    i have a white and green batik – it’s beautiful leaves and so bright and vibrant for spring. my husband bought me 3 yards of it so i can make a great dress out of it, but i haven’t figured out what pattern i want to use yet. i’ve had it since early november…

  642. Rachel says:

    I’m coveting Feathered Friends! A friend of mine used some to make a coin quilt and it is too, too sweet!

  643. wendy says:

    My favorite fabric ever is black branches with berries on silver grey, with shadowing behind the branches and some white in there too. It reminds me of winter in Milwaukee with snow on the branches, where I spent the first 27 years of my life. I have a tiny bit left!
    Wendy

  644. Renee says:

    I Love it all! And I love it more when it’s free!

  645. Gen says:

    I loved Heather Ross West Hill.

  646. Alana says:

    My favorite is Alexander Henry, the one with the rockets. I love that stuff!!

  647. Jill G says:

    I seem to always be drawn to Amy Butlers lines. I love it ALL. Heather Bailey is top on the list as well as many of Heather Ross’ prints. ;) I seriously just LOVE fabric.

  648. Melani says:

    I am just getting back into sewing and have been eyeing Metro Market by Monaluna. I love fruit designs and my daughter’s name is Apple. I would love to make her some dresses out of these.

  649. Kate M. says:

    The fabric on my next-to-buy list is Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner– especially Furtune in Zinnia and/or Chocolate. It makes me think Spring! I miss Joel Dewberry’s Sparrows in Almond.

  650. Cara says:

    Oh there are so many fabrics I love but I adore the gnome print from Heather Ross’ Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries line. ::swoon::

  651. Alma-Momma says:

    I love the Echino prints, still not in the dough to buy them, but I can covet them all I want!

  652. melanie says:

    Amy Butler’s Lotus is my favorite!

  653. Sue says:

    I’m in love with Sentimental Studios “Nouveau’. I get happy just looking at it!

  654. Rose says:

    I LOVE batik. I have lots of it in my stash but I can’t bring myself to cut and sew it. It’s just too beautiful. I have a pttern for a Mei-Tai baby carrier that requires a panel of a print (and then you sew on straps in a coordinating color) so I *might* use a piece for that. Otherwise, I just look at it and ooh and ahh and wish I was a skinny hippie so I could wear it without looking like a freak.

  655. My favorite collection right now is Amy Butler’s Midwest modern (I think that’s what it’s called) it seems like I am always coming up with ideas of where and how I want to use it.

    Thanks for the great giveaways each week!

  656. Sara G says:

    Heather Ross’s fabrics AND her book get me feeling all creative! I also adore vintage tablecloth style prints when I can find them.

  657. Amy says:

    I’m very new to sewing so I don’t have much of a stash at all, but I’d love to get my hands on Heather Ross’s Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries line. It’s adorable!

  658. Dee says:

    I just love Jennifer Sampou’s fabric from the mid 90s.

  659. Betty says:

    I’m currently head over heels in love with Neptune by Tula Pink. My husband is in the Navy so I swoon over anything nautical but this collection just knocks me off my feet. :)

  660. Mary on Lake Pulaski says:

    Good Folks is staying with me as one of my favorites, so I am glad you are restocking it. I have a quilt in mind to make.

  661. Kristin says:

    My current favorite is a print from SuperBuzzy with little girls wearing kerchiefs. It’s so cute and vintagey. And impossible to find. I would love to have some in the red colorway, but I don’t think that will ever be happening!

  662. coffeechris says:

    I have some yellow and blue fabric I purchased at Britex on my first trip there ….still coveting it for the loveliness and sentimental memory of a great get-a-way with another sewing friend. I have been loving The Weekend Sewing Blog Book Tour ….and reading about this great book.

  663. Anna in Atlanta says:

    I sure would like to win this book. I’m gonna’ have to actually buy it if not!

    My favorite fabric ever is a 100% cotton quilting print I bought at WalMart (believe it or not) years ago. It’s blueberries on a white ground, but the blueberries are so blue (and navy and lavender, with bits of green leaves) and so many that the overall effect is periwinkle-ish, my favorite color. I got yards and yards because I loved it so, and ended up making a comforter cover out of it. I see it every day, and just looking at that print with my fluffy comforter inside makes me happy. I sent one of the last pieces off in February’s fat-quarter swap.

  664. Lori says:

    I Love the Good Folks Fabric but really I love it all! I am going to place an order today!
    Lori

  665. Kris says:

    In high school a friend of my mom’s gave me a ton of beautiful gray/beige wool. I made a wonderful classic suit and wore it for job interviews a few years later. Oh how I wish I had more of that lovely fabric……..

  666. becky says:

    mine is the SIERRA collection by Anna Griffin. Love everything about it. It was a hard to find. HAven’t cut it up yet. can’t decide or give in. :)

  667. Karen H says:

    I love the 1930′s reproduction fabrics, anything with strawberries and cherries and probably half of what I see at any one given fabric website. :)

  668. craftytammie says:

    My all time fave designer is Heather Ross – so sad to hear she’s stopping for awhile. But my very fave fabric is a pile (and I do mean pile) of vintage 3 ” squares I bought at a thrift store. There are hundreds of these squares, and I’ve been hoarding them for five years or more, trying to decide what quilt to use them on. I recently started sending a few squares out with my swaps – I was feeling guilty :)

  669. Denise says:

    I love the Heather Ross West Hill!!!

  670. Shelly B. says:

    Darla is my all-time favorite! LOVE it!

  671. Heather T says:

    Call me crazy, but I made a tote bag out of a heavy cotton tablecloth – and now I want a skirt from the same fabric!

    The projects in this book look really cute and weekends are about all the time I have…

  672. Stacy says:

    I am hoarding a bunch of gorgeous Amy Butler fat quarters I splurged on – don’t know what I am going to do with them yet – something marvelous when the inspiration strikes! But until then – they are sitting safe and snug in my sewing drawer .

  673. I absolutely loved Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy, especially the turquoise and gray floral. I have a skirt out of it and desperately wish for more regularly.

  674. alisha says:

    I love the Trefle collection from Kokka. So cute!

  675. Allison Bloom says:

    My favorite fabric in my stash is light blue with cherries – I got it at a rummage sale, and I can never quite bring myself to use it. I’ve been eyeing Heather Ross’s fabrics online forever – but always tell myself I will buy them when I get more sewing practice (I’d be too intimidated to use them for a project that might turn out wonky or get sewn wrongside-out)! I especially love the mermaids.

  676. Jenna says:

    my favorite fabric that i’ve been hoarding for years is Moda’s Summer in the City by Urban chicks. the colors, the print, the design. i wish i had bought more than a yard back then. i am so excited about heathers book! it looks amazing! i can’t wait to get my hands on it! :)

  677. Angela C. says:

    I love the Andalucia line from Patty Young. I don’t have any currently but would love to have some. Thanks for the giveaway.

    accoupons at gmail dot com

  678. Kama says:

    I plan to do some sewing this weekend and maybe even today if my son will let me. I don’t have a specific favorite fabric, but I just love anything bright and cheerful!

  679. Nova437 says:

    I have been hoarding a green butterfly print for a bag. I think it’s from Fluorographix II.

  680. Sarah says:

    I just love Heather Ross.. I love all of her fabrics so much and have a hard time using them, especially the FQ of Gnomes I think I might frame it ;-) I also love Sandi Henderson’s apples from farmers market and they seem to find their way into everything I make. Katie Jumprope is another all time favorite especailly the brown flowers. Oh and polka dots I love them all

  681. Ms. Fine says:

    Honestly, I can’t even remember the name of the fabric line now–but years ago Thimbleberries put out this gorgeous grouping of blue and gold flannels. One fabric in particular was on a midnight blue with golden flecks that gave the impression of fireflies against a dark sky–it instantly took me back to nights at my grandparents house playing in the great open night. I still have a couple of yards of it that I ahven’t cut, pathetic but true. I just want it to be the perfect project when I do.

  682. Jeni says:

    344 comments! Oh well, maybe it’s my lucky Friday!

    This sounds random, but I really have been coveting some of the elephant fabric that’s constantly in other bloggers’ projects. Any color with those cute white elephants?! Love it!

  683. Kristina says:

    So hard to pick just one favorite! I recently used the last of Kleo by Alexander Henry for a brithday purse for my sister. I’ve held onto it for so long b/c I love it so but I know she will enjoy the purse even more.

  684. Susan says:

    Wow – you guys have tons of comments today! Good for you :) I have a print I’ve held off using, I don’t remember who it came from or “what it’s called”. It’ soff white with a little girl with a kerchif on her head. I know I want to make something for my babygirl with it, I just haven’t found the right project yet. Maybe this book would help me find the right thing! Thanks for the opportunity.

  685. Jane says:

    I have a piece of barkcloth that were curtains when my parents were first married in ’49. They are both gone now, but I’ve been hoarding it for years. I just haven’t settled on the right project for it.

  686. I started collecting fabric with sheep on it when I was ~14 or 15 and taking sewing, quilting, and sheep projects in 4-H. I still collect it and someday I hope to make a quilt entirely out of sheep fabrics – possibly from a pattern in baby quilts that has appliqued sheep and a white picket fence border.

  687. Shannon says:

    I love the Mendocino collection by Heather Ross!

  688. corina says:

    I recently bought my first sewing machine from someone moving overseas. She kindly gave me a bag of leftover fabrics. I still haven’t had the time to go through all of them…but whenever I dig in there I find something interesting. I love all the possibilities that present themselves with a piece of fabric. At the moment I am coveting the Wonderland series of fabrics. All the wonderful things that come to mind by looking at them!

  689. qsogirl says:

    I’m new to the whole “collections of fabric” thing, so I don’t have a particular favorite, but I love the bold, bright, graphic florals.

  690. LoriR says:

    I cut the selvedge off my favorite piece of fabric a few years ago, so I don’t know what it’s called :( Too bad, because I’m down to a half yard and I NEED more. It’s a bright springy floral (pink, red, yellow, turquoise, apple green) on a black background. I love it!!

  691. aimee says:

    I am in the process of making a quilt for my chick using a mix of Heather Bailey’s newest prints. I love that line a ton and love how it is turning out!
    But I’m dreaming of Heather Bailey’s mendicino line and using it to redo our kids bathroom…

  692. Arlene says:

    All time favorite – Heather Bailey, Moda, Ann Marie…oh I have a lot of all time favorites!

  693. Lindsay says:

    I really love Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern Collection!

  694. suzanne says:

    I’ve been coveting oilcloth lately….!

  695. Rochelle says:

    You mean I have to pick just one?! I’ve been trying to decide for 10 minutes and I have to go get the kids up to go to school!….
    anything by Heather Bailey or Anna Horner or anything with birds….oh, or anything really vintage looking…I’m sorry! I can’t pick just one! There are so many beautiful fabrics. I’m so happy to have the internet so that I can see them all!

  696. Ginger says:

    I hoard vintage sheets when I can find them, and I have a strange fascination for hippos – the lime green IKEA fabric, for example, but what I really want is the fabric I saw on someone’s blog recently that her husband got her at Britex. So cute!

  697. Sara says:

    I am really liking the Good Folks oilcloth and I have a bad feeling it will be gone before I permit myself to buy it.

  698. Toby says:

    I love Alexander Henry’s kleo print and have collect every fabric that coordinates with it. It inspired the purchase of fabric for my first quilt. I am also starting to collect all that match his mocca print too!

  699. Lena says:

    Mmm. that Mendocino has been on my list…and I have been eagerly waiting for Heather Ross’s new book! Now that spring break is starting, I’ll have more time to explore!

  700. Lee Horan says:

    Anything by Alexander Henry, you can’t go wrong with his style.

  701. Christine says:

    I’m hoarding my repro prints with little animals on them….I can’t seem to cut it and I have soooo much!
    I want that book!!! AAARRGGGG…..I’m just about to buy it…but maybe winning it would be just peachy, eh?

  702. karissa says:

    I really love any of the Amy Butler fabrics, it is soo hard to choose a favorite.

  703. Liz says:

    What a great topic- it’s fun to read everyone else’s answers. I love patterns that look older (60s-70s ish) and I recently found a group of fabric called Sweet Mod. I love the Motif print in butter, the Spotted Swirl in grass, and the Swirl in sky. I don’t think I could pick a favorite of all time, though. I feel like that changes with my mood.

  704. Corvus says:

    My favorite fabric I found on the discount stand at the local fabric store, and immediately bought all of it. It’s red fabric with little white birds on it, and I’ve had it in my stash for YEARS and have yet to sew a thing because I’m afraid to screw it up. After all, it was red tag fabric- it’s not like there’s any more left back on the shelf.

    Fabrics I covet, I can’t begin to decide between. There’s quite a few in this post alone that make me drool and make the “creative planning” part of my brain run wild.

  705. Crystal says:

    I love the Alexander Henry Camden Fair prints… I just haven’t been able to get any yet. I’d love the make a skirt of the Dark Chocolate one.

  706. Malorie says:

    Katie Jump Rope for sure. I love anything vintage inspired–add in bold primary colors and I am in heaven.

  707. Annika says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever loved as many prints in a single collection as in West Hill.

  708. Annalee says:

    My current favorite is an Alexander Henry print that I found at Jo-Ann. It’s got big bright lemons all over it, and I can’t wait to make something out of it.

  709. Amy S says:

    I would love it if the shop could stock up on some more amazing womens clothing patterns. I am definitely going to have to check out the book!

  710. Christina W says:

    i love the “Dick and jane” fabrics from michael miller. they are so cute and retro, and perfect for making things for the kitchen as well as for kids. my friends got aprons made from this collection for christmas and they were a big hit! but my all time favourite single print is “sketchbook” from anna maria horner’s “drawing room” collection. it incorporates birds and foliage in such a modern design, gorgeous. plus it has hummingbirds on it, which were my grandmother’s favourite bird, and it makes me think of her every time i see them.

  711. Leslie says:

    How can I narrow it down to just one with so many fabulous designers, patterns & colors to chose from? Well I can tell you one of my favorites right now is Heather Bailey’s Painted Mum in blue/peach. Thanks and keep on sharing great fabric finds!

  712. Shelley says:

    I don’t have a favorite fabric, but I seem to be drawn to prints with brown and turquoise together.

  713. 2hippos says:

    I love much of Alexander Henry’s prints, but my current favorite is the elephants on white.

  714. Elizabeth says:

    I am hoarding Anna Maria Horners Drawing Room Sketchbook in Blue. . . I love it so much!

  715. Autumn says:

    My all time fave is Mendocino. I have the whole line, but haven’t even touched it yet. I might just keep it for years, until my husband and I retire in a beach condo. It will be my motivation to keep that dream alive.

    -A autumnliketheseason.blogspot.com

  716. Monica gee says:

    Just one? Oh that is too hard! I love every Amy Butler print!! But currently, I’m in love with Anna Marie Horner’s new fabrics. Especially the ones she has done in oilcloth. Genius!

  717. Mendy says:

    I dearly love an older print of Amy Butler’s, but I can’t remember the name. The color was duck egg, I know that. A gorgeous blue and pink medallion print.

  718. MamaBee says:

    I’m drooling on my computer screen over those “Good Folks” prints. So fun!

  719. Jill says:

    I have some Alexander Henry Flower Fairies fat quarters that I can’t bring myself to cut up yet. I found the line once it was all sold out. I also love Seaside Rose by 3 sisters. I have made at least five quilts and two dresses out of it and still have quite a bit left.

  720. Courtney says:

    Right now my favorite line is Andalucia. I LOVE the colors and patterns.

  721. Rebekah says:

    I am a big fan of Debbie Mumm fabric!! I’m just getting into building my stash and I usually just buy whatever is on sale (that looks pretty!)

  722. Elena says:

    Beautiful selection! I would love to be the lucky winner for any of these items! The magazine looks fun too. Love the blog and I check it every day for new items to sew.

  723. Charity says:

    I just started sewing more, so I don’t have a huge stash or know much about different fabric designers. I do love all the cute bright prints, though! (And I love cherries!) :)

  724. I covet pretty much anything by Alexander Henry…it is definitely an addiction! I have yards of it….and just can’t bring myself to cut it!! I love to just look at it :)

  725. Rane says:

    I have for the logest time wanted the fabric with the little gnomes on it. I am sure you
    know the one. I do not know the name of the fabric but oh how I love it. I also want
    some fabric with mushrooms on it!
    As for the fabric you are offering I love West Hill by Heather Ross it is so sweet!
    I love Japanese prints and greatly regret not getting some when I was there.
    *sigh* hind site is 20/20… oh well.
    Love your site!
    Thank you,
    Rane
    ~~*~~

  726. Caroline L. says:

    I adore the Mendocino line – I’ve been meaning to make something for my baby boy from it.

  727. Michelle says:

    My fav line is Tula Pink’s Flutterby. :-D But you gotta love Heather Ross – those prints just seem to be a little tongue-in-cheek, which I love. Sometimes, I think fabric is way too serious!

  728. Robin says:

    For the longest time, I was coveting this fabric that had simple animals on a white background. There were the cutest little squirrels and little lolly-pop trees. I went back to find the name of it, but now it is nowhere to be found. So very sad.
    But I also really like the 2-D Zoo Pool ~ Alexander Henry. I guess my favorites are the whimsical ones that just scream to be made into something magical! :o)

  729. Nicole Markelz says:

    My son loves animals and I wanted to make a Denise Schmidt quilt for him using 2-D Zoo. At the time, this print was out of stock everywhere (in the color I wanted), so I searched and searched. I found one person selling it, so I bought a ton! Now, after making the quilt I still have some leftover, so I’m pondering what to do with it…pajamas? Window treatments? I love the print, but know it’s still hard to find, so I don’t want to waste what I have!

  730. Chassie says:

    I love Tina Givens Fabric, all lines!!

  731. Jenny Kim says:

    i’m totally in love with this print i recently acquired, going to make a kimono jacket out of it, its asiany but not cheesy, pink with rabbits, paper cranes! how cute!

  732. Tressa says:

    I hoard it ALL!! – or some of it anyway – I just love love love all fabric – even the ugly stuff is cool when you put it in a quilt! Too many that I love to pick just one! and I’d love to have that book!

  733. Jenn Jones says:

    Right now I love Sandi Henderson’s line Farmer’s Market…LOVE IT!

  734. Leslie says:

    I like vintage blossoms. Its so beautiful and so perfect for baby items and I love making things for babies!

  735. Anne says:

    My favorite prints are the whole Wonderland by MoMo collection! thanks for the contest!

  736. Samantha says:

    I love the Katie Jump Rope line.

  737. Meghan says:

    I’ve been hoarding any and all fabric I’ve purchased while traveling abroad–some lovely block printed Indian fabric, Dutch wax prints from Africa…

  738. Heather A says:

    I adore Amy Butler’s Lacework in dark brown. Adore it. I bought a yard of it with the intention of making a bag for a friend’s gift – but I loved it so much I used it for EVERYTHING, until there wasn’t enough left for bag making *sniff* But I got lots of other gorgeous things out of it!

  739. Gwen says:

    I remember visiting Laura Ashley shops with my mom and sister when I was quite young. I remember loving those huge rolls of fabric and all the beautiful clothing, decor; everything. We’d always leave with something, but my favourite fabric was that blue strawberry print. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3292/3054160680_0df35a36bf.jpg?v=1227475594 I believe it’s no longer available, but I was lucky enough to find a remnant of it at my local JoAnn’s (of all places!) a few years back. I still haven’t made anything with it, but it’s just over a yard, so there’s enough to make something wonderful!

  740. Terri Moran says:

    My mad crush is on Liberty prints and vintage Laura Ashley. Amy Butler fabrics make me smile. Love your collections here.

  741. Kristen L says:

    Ahhh, I love Moda’s Swell Collection. And since it is no longer in production, I am having a very hard time wanting to use up the pieces of it I have left! I’ll have to find something really incredible to persuade me to use it.

  742. Adrianne Foreman says:

    I’m pretty new to sewing, but I love all of Amy Butler’s collections.

  743. CarlyW says:

    I covet anything fresh and modern, but I have always loved Amy Butler especially. I’m making a quilt with her Midwest Modern collection right now and I absolutely adore it! Things I’m hoarding are my yellow faux bois print (don’t know who by…) and anything damask print!! I’d love to win… I usually have the worst luck!

  744. Cassi says:

    I’m brand new to sewing and have only picked up super inexpensive fat quarters at craft stores so far. I have to yet to purchase nice fabric. I’ve had my eye on Amy Butler Prints for a long time, I hope to make the leap soon. Love your site, and thanks for the chance to win.

  745. Louisa says:

    I really love the garden party collection. Who am I kidding, I love all fabric!

  746. Emilee says:

    Lately I’ve been loving the 70′s print large-scale floral vintage percale sheets from Goodwill. My girls look adorable in dresses that are, as my husband LOVES to say, “pieces of sheet.”

  747. Audrey says:

    I wish I had some of the Heather Ross VW bus fabric! I hate that I missed out on that. I would love some of the West Hill collection so I should stock up soon!

  748. kim3timemom says:

    I hoard all fabrics!! :) Thanks for the chance to win.

  749. Lorajean says:

    I’m trying to do a quilt in west hills! I love it!

  750. Celeste says:

    I can’t get enough of Charisma and Woodland Bloom. I think I am gonna have to get me some much coveted Soiree. Hope I win.

  751. kelly says:

    i love dots. i treat polka-dots as neutral, love em’ so much!

  752. Amy says:

    I really like the Katie Jump Rope collection at the moment. I could never pick an all time favorite fabric though because it changes all the time and I love so many equally!

  753. lynn whelan says:

    My fabric obsession really just began a few months ago, but a couple of my faves have been: all of Amy Butler’s polka dots. I seriously want every color!!! And I have loved anything I bought from Anna Marie Horner. I have been contemplating those Heather Ross ones for a while though and would love to get my hands on them!!!

  754. Elizabeth says:

    I love Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market but I’m also a dedicated Moda addict!

  755. Traci White says:

    I’ve decided to stop coveting Katie Jump Rope and buy some today! Such Fun!! So many beautiful fabrics so little time.

  756. Keri says:

    Love this book! Have been dying to get my hands on a copy!!

  757. Shannon says:

    I have so many favorites, I think I’m hoarding them all. I just keep buying and buying. I would love to win that fun book. It would be great to get new ideas for my Simply Sewing class. Please pick me!!

  758. Beth says:

    I agree its hard to pick, but the one I wish I had picked up when I saw it was a retro-inspired print with all sorts of birds and a fine black vine on a white background. I don’t remember who made it. I think my favorite that I have actually worked with was a civil-war era reproduction was a blue fabric with a stylized shell pattern. The last time I was in our local chain store they still had a bolt – maybe I should pick up some more. The left swatch in the “good folks” group above would coordinate well with it. hmmm…

  759. Jessi says:

    I am fairly new to sewing and fabrics so I do not have a lot of history. However, I have seen some evidence that Amy Butler used to have some flannel prints that we absolutely beautiful and I do wish that those were still around!

  760. shamblissity says:

    Thanks for updating! Hope I win a book!!! These fabrics are fun.

  761. Tracey says:

    I have two: Heather Bailey’s Fresh Cut and Anna Marie Horner’s Good Folk. I just love those lines and never tire of looking at them!

  762. Dana says:

    I have so many favorites. Right now I am grooving on Jenean Morrison’s Moondance line. I also tend to buy and hoard anything with hedgehogs.

  763. Alison N says:

    I got a bunch of Heather Ross Mendicino because I was a mermaid MANIAC when I was a kid. Now I can’t bear to cut it!!

  764. Krista says:

    I really love old chenille fabrics – the different textures, patterns, and pretty colours are wonderful. But otherwise I love any Amy Butler fabric… so happy feeling!

  765. Holly says:

    My favorite fabrics are the pieces I cut from old baby clothes to make a quilt. Just remembering the outfits and times with my kids is priceless.

  766. Kate says:

    I’ve been eying Anna Maria Horner’s fabric. It is SO beautiful.

  767. Natalie says:

    I am fairly new to the blogging world and I see the Denyse Schmidt flee market fancy everywhere and I LOVE it! I wish I could get my hands on some. Oh how I would also LOVE to win Heather’s new book! I have taken a look but have held off on buying, told myself that I must get completely out of debt before I allow myself to get i :)

  768. Shannon says:

    I usually go gaga over the Moda Fabrics and Amy Butler’s fabrics. Sometimes I wish I could open my own store JUST to see all the beautiful fabrics out there and have a bit of each!

  769. Janet says:

    My first passion in life that I can remember is fabric. There are so many beautiful kinds of fabric that I can’t choose only one. I have stashes of quilting cotton yardage and fat quarters. I love the Robert Kauffman and Kona lines for quilting. Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner have very distinguished lines. They’re so much fun! There’s also wool, a little silk and some varied upholstery pieces tucked away in a chest.
    Heather’s book is just pure inspiration. I’ve been sewing for many years and I think it’s perfect. I hope there’s no age limit on playing with the patterns, because, I wnat to wear at least one of each of the items in the book. (I tend to exaggerate just a little.:)

  770. k dody says:

    I have been coveting a piece of vintage hot-air balloon fabric and won’t cut it. Something perfect will come along for it and I will be so glad I saved it……or, it will sit folded until I die and someone will throw it out!

  771. Debi George says:

    I adore Kaffe Fasset’s Verbena fabric in sage. The sweet trees on this print feed my obsession with nature.

  772. Dani says:

    Anything by Alexander Henry! I especially love ‘Starling’ and ‘Blakely Pool’ right now.

  773. Katie says:

    My favorite fabric line is Swell by Urban Chiks. I used it to make my first quilt!

  774. angela says:

    I’ve loved many but the only one that’s inspired me to buy and purchase so far is A
    my Butler’s Daisy Chain – I’m making a quilt of it!

  775. Jana says:

    I find this quite the inspiring site. I get so many good ideas and link s here!

  776. Susan says:

    I just love Ginseng by Joel Dewberry, in the heavier weight fabric in all the colors it comes in. I have made many a bag with it, and find I can’t take my eyes off the finished product! Beautiful. Of course the red flowered fabric in Katie Jump Rope will be a forever favorite of it, it is so much fun paired with different fabrics!

  777. Lisa says:

    I love all vintage children’s prints! It’s hard to pick just one! This book looks fantastic! Can’t wait to hear from the author!

  778. Jessica says:

    I’m so sad my Katie Jump Rope is all gone…excited to see you now have more!

  779. Felicia says:

    I love the Ava Rose Fabric by Tanya Whelan. I am doing my daughter’s nursery in those fabrics.

  780. Jessi says:

    I’ve been hoarding a really cool squirrel fabric for a long time now. It’s tan with white squirrels outlined in navy. They look like illustrations from a kids book or something. I bought a couple yards of it, but I can never figure out a good project for it.

  781. Stephanie says:

    I really love the Joel Dewberry Aviary collection. It looks so nice in patchwork.

  782. dangermom says:

    Oh, oops, I didn’t do it right. Today my favorite fabric collection is the stripes and plaids from 3 Sisters’ Faded Memories line–I made 4 dresses for my girls and a baby quilt and I still have a bit, and I wish I’d bought more, that’s how much I love those stripes.

  783. LisaC says:

    Maybe a need a sewing book instead of all those patterns.

    I bought a meter of rainbow fabric at a craft fair that I can’t bring myself to cut up. I keep thinking of ways to use it, then chicken out. :) I think I need to use it on the back of a quilt so I won’t have to cut it at all.

  784. Francis Moore says:

    I like anything by Amy Butler and Valorie Wells. I also love the Dick and Jane fabrics.

  785. Debra says:

    Gosh I don’t think I could choose just one! I really wish I had a bunch of the Lush by Moda line to make a nice duvet and I love so much of Joel Dewberry’s Avairy line. I’m completely looking forward to the new Heather Ross Far and Away line, perfect for my 5 year old daughter!

  786. dangermom says:

    I can still get Mendocino?? Oh boy, I missed that one the first time around, I’m very happy now!

  787. Christine says:

    I love my Susan Branch fabric. I’ve been hording it because it’s so pretty but I’m actually going to use some next weekend and finally make my kitchen curtains! I’m also a huge fan of the Mendocino, and I’m going to need to get more of it soon…. I love all fabric- just looking at my stash makes me smile.

  788. Jessie says:

    Currently it’s Dandy Damask in Avocado/Chocolate by Michael Miller. One of my friends made me a diaper bag out of it so now I’ve been making all the matching accessories! I just hate to come to the end of my stash!

  789. Lea says:

    Currently I am loving the Midwest Modern collection by Amy Butler!

  790. Vonda says:

    Wow. Such great fabrics. Can’t wait to start on some new summer projects.

  791. Jennie says:

    I’m hording this small amount of a blue and pink plaid cotton fabric. I purchased it in 2003 and have no idea who the maker is. It’s a lovely weave and will be perfect for something (maybe the inside of the purl bee’s bunny’s ears?).

  792. Leigh says:

    I’m relatively new to sewing and fabric-hoarding, and the first line that really has me over the moon is the new Wonderland by MoMo. I love every gorgeous bit of it!!!

  793. Bonnie Mieth says:

    The simple fabric on my stuffed animals my mother sewed for me when I was a child. She made a dinosaur with a tiny, floral calico print in blue tones on one side and a solid blue canvas on the other. Then, later on for the holidays she made a teddy bear out of the leftover fabric from my dinosaur. I still have both and each time I look at them it brings back wonderful childhood memories.

  794. Morgan says:

    I am fairly new to sewing, but have loved fabrics forever! My favorites are the old vintage-y prints that evoke thoughts of a different time. I especially love the bright 60′s prints!

  795. Jessica says:

    Hmm . . . favorite print – I like most of the Alexander Henry prints. Anything in brown, green and blue that is somewhat retro.

  796. JulieK says:

    I have a small amount of this white fabric that has a tiny pastel teal print on it. I found some velvet ribbon that exactly matches the teal. I’ve been hording it for a couple of years, waiting for the perfect project to use it. It has a beautiful summer-softness to it. Clean and sweet.

  797. Marcijo says:

    Right now I’m liking Erin McMorris Park Slope Collection

  798. DianeM says:

    I think the fabric that I would like to see come back would be the older ME prints. I’ve been able to collect quite afew off of Ebay & I am definitely hoarding them since they’re not available retail anymore…I’ve got to have just the right project for them. My Thangles & my Swanky jelly roll finally arrived so I hope to play with those this weekend. Smiles, DianeM :)

  799. Anik says:

    My favorite collection these days is Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner. Above every prints I love all the hues of the tablecloth print.

    And, I would really love to own that book. :)

  800. lesley says:

    When I got married, I inherited my grandmother’s sewing machine table. Inside was a bunch of thread and buttons and only one little scrap of fabric. It’s a pale green with dark green and yellow butterflies on it. I’ve been saving it for the perfect project. It means alot to me because I lost both my mom and grandmother at such an early age. It gives me an idea of their taste and I love it!

  801. Rachel says:

    I’m so sad that I missed out on the gnomes from Heather Ross! I wish I had ordered some when I had the chance and now I can’t find them anywhere! (not that I have a project for them…but since when does that matter?!) :)

  802. Katheirne says:

    My favorite print is from Jelly Bean form Heather Bailey’s Freshcut line. I LOVE it!! Here is the linke to ck. it out: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=ViewListing&product_id=140477

  803. Amy says:

    i covet pretty much anything from Amy Butler. I love her fabrics!

  804. Kelly Gratz says:

    Love the Katie Jump Rope collection, but also anything by Heather Bailey or Anna Maria.

  805. shan says:

    anything toile does it for me! something is so classic about that print! and i love this new book!

  806. Sharon says:

    I’m a newbie in fabrics, but my eye seems to always fall on the cute vintage collections and the florals and stripes.

  807. Nancy Carpenter says:

    I covet any faux bois fabric. I keep collecting it and have the hardest time cutting into it. I tend to use tiny pieces so I can keep some in my stash to fondle.

  808. Erin says:

    I’m totally coveting Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks! The colors are so beautiful and there are probably a dozen things I want to make with it. :)

  809. Kay says:

    I am a big, big fan of Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern Garden Maze fabrics. Just love them!

  810. Beatrix says:

    I love the Apples & Pears print in light blue by Alexander Henry. I keep a couple of yards of it in my stash at all times, even if I have no plan on what to make from it yet.

  811. anita says:

    I really love the Alexander Henry Starling print and I also love the Flights of Fancy from Paula Prass. The book looks like a lot of fun project.s

  812. lifeasamama says:

    i think my single favorite print is alexander henry’s kleo in sage.

    although almost everything by moda is absolutely gorgeous…

  813. Kelly says:

    I love the Katie Jump Rope prints, and am glad to see them back! Joel Dewberry’s Aviary is a close second. Great colors in both lines.

  814. Kelly K says:

    Very nice collections. Love the colors.

  815. Jocelyn says:

    Love that Darla and West Hill!

  816. Judy Roenke says:

    I have mermaid fabric by Michael Miller. I finally used some to make an adorable dress for a friend’s baby girl.

  817. I spent several years in Okinawa and found so many fun fabrics. My favorite was a vintage-look Raggedy Ann and Andy — of all the things to find in Japan! The color scheme was nearly exact to the Mendocino above.

  818. Kolleen says:

    I love the Katie Jump Rope you just posted–I have to get it mail order, so I just use bits here and there. I should try some of the Charm Pack ideas you posted this week. I only have 1 FQ of the red flowers left!

  819. Jessica says:

    Timeless Treasures, Sushi fabrics! Way too cool!!!
    And I can’t wait to get that book- projects I might actually be able to finish with three little ones running around.

  820. Meagan says:

    I fell in love with a rose material a few months ago but I have no idea who made it or what its called…. it was a remnant that was given to me. I used most of it in a garden caddy as a gift, and I hope the recepient loved it.

  821. Jen M says:

    My new love is the Park Slope fabric line YUM! I keep wondering when I can afford some.

  822. Tami says:

    It’s a super tough choice to choose just one, but I’m going to go with ‘Squeezed’ by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I LOVE the bright colors and summery feel of the fabric. It makes me want to open all the windows in my house, make some homemade lemonade, and play with my son!

  823. Jeannine says:

    My favorite has been Flea Market Fancy. I really regret not getting more when I could. Right now I have 1/2 yard of the green dots and flowers and scraps of the gold eyelet looking fabric.

    I also love Heather Ross’s fishes. Luckily I have 1 yard of the fish in bags and 9 (!!) yards of the fish in water. That is earmarked for a double sized quilt for my son (hence the 9 yards – it’s for backing).

  824. Steph W says:

    Well, I’m really into tea things, so any time I see a print with tea stuff on it, I snap it up! Tea things are so functional and beautiful at the same time!

  825. Lydia says:

    Since I’m a newbie fabric stasher, I don’t yet have the fabrics that I am wishing for…it is actually one that you just restocked!! Darla by Tanya Whelan. I LOVE the color combinations in these patterns and the hint of vintage is too much to resist!

  826. Lois0607 says:

    I am completely smitten with April Cornell’s Portugal line. It has been around for a while but I still scoop it up whenever I can.

  827. Erica says:

    Two of my latest favorites are the Dick and Jane prints and Mendocino. I have a daughter that loves fish and water, but I’ve been trying to control my fabric budget. I have a few prints of DIck and Jane, but I don’t want to cut into it yet.

  828. Shanna says:

    OOOOHHHH…such cute fabrics! I would love to win some. My hubby will be in India for 10 days and I have great plans for sewing!!

  829. Suzanne says:

    I love all sorts of fabric depending on the season. As the weather warms up in the spring I am drawn to light cotton of bright colors and flowers. As the weather cools down in I am inspired by flannels and autumnal colored fabrics (and fall leaf designs!). And the rest of the year I enjoy all the fabrics in between. Enjoy National Quilting Day and the Spring Equinox! May everyone get some sewing in this weekend!

  830. melissa says:

    I’m hoarding, but it’s for sentimental reasons… I have Asian silks that an Uncle brought home… and some crazy Guatemalan fabric that belonged to my Grandmother from her travels… my mother made me a backpack out of some of the lovely woven llamas when I was in HS, but that bag is long gone, and I’m not sure I could part with the rest of it! So I just like to open up the chest of fabric and see it looking at me :)

  831. Ellen says:

    My grandmother has tons of small calicos, left over from years ago. There is this pink one (and I’m not really a pink girl) that she put in a quilt she made me when I was 2 (pink and blue Double Wedding Ring, absolutely gorgeous). She has had scraps of it forever. I made my first wall hanging (and gave it to my mother in law) and put this pink calico in it. It’s pink with small blue and green flowers on it. She gave me a ton of scraps last year, and this one was in it. There is about 1/4 yard left . . . I’m hording it for something REALLY special to come along to put it in. Maybe my first child’s first quilt?

  832. Ashley says:

    I’ve been hoarding Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy, as well as Heather Ross’s Lightning Bugs line. I still can’t find the gnomes in yellow, or the mushrooms in any color, but I’ll continue to search!

  833. Marlana says:

    A book to do something with the fabric! How fun!

  834. Angel S. says:

    I really love vintagey fabrics, I have an old sheet that was my grandmothers with a beautiful floral print. I finally cut into it to make some shopping bags and still have a nice sized piece left that is waiting for the perfect inspiration.

  835. kriscake says:

    I have to agree with Marcella. I have a Japanese robot fabric from etsy that I just love.

  836. Kandie says:

    I don’t know the names of the prints, but anything shot with gold or silver is good with me! I love the added glammer that little bit of glitz gives my sewing projects.

  837. kinzie says:

    I know it’s so typical to be in love with Tanya’s Darla collection, but I LOVE it! I am making my toddler’s first twin quilt for when she moves into her big girl bed. I looked everywhere for something that was the right style and colors, and then Darla came out and I fell in love! Now I have the quilt top finished, but hated cutting into my beautiful fabric because it’s so lovely that I didn’t want to ruin it. So that’s my current fabric love affair!

  838. Meg says:

    Pick a favorite? No way! Though I wish I had grabbed some of Heather Ross’ Lightening Bugs… range with the goldfish. I’ve seen SO many adorable things done with those prints. *sigh* Fortunately, there seems to be no end to the beautiful prints available now!

  839. Lorene says:

    I am loving Amy Butler’s Daisy Chain right now!

  840. Marisol says:

    I’ve also been coveting Mendocino. I’m in love with the natural octopus pattern, and as soon as I figure out what to do with it I’m buying it.

  841. Jessica says:

    One of my favorite fabrics is I think a Michael Kauffman print that has sushi on it and fish wearing little ninja headbands. It was a hit with my boyfriend when I made him an apron out of it!

  842. Chandra says:

    There are so many good fabrics out there that a favorite is hard to identify! I have an old Liberty lawn that I know will make a beautiful dress but haven’t een able to cut yet!

  843. Anna says:

    Alexander Henry Fashionista KLEO Black and white flowers and the matching bangle dots and stripes. I’m decorating my craft room with it.

  844. KZ says:

    I love it all!!!

  845. RB says:

    I’m new to sewing (well, not new, but just recently starting again and building my stash). I love polka dots!

  846. I LOVE the Hoffmann Fabrics line of Camp Time Fun. I just finished a quilt with it for my son, and am trying to get my hands one more!

  847. Sally says:

    There is a fabric that I so wish I could find or have more of, but I don’t know who made it or where it came from…. it was red with off-white flowers that had pops of seafoam and were outlined in a very dark navy. It was just. so. pretty.

  848. Amy Sp says:

    My all-time favorite fabric is the goldfish on blue with names under them (not in bags!) from Heather Ross. I believe it was the Lightning Bugs collections :)

  849. Sunny says:

    I am missing Alexander Henry’s Peace fabric… :( I only bought one yard and it is gone. phooey.

  850. Vanessa says:

    I am really enjoying the Nouveau fat quarters I ordered from Sew Mama Sew. I just finished a little wall quilt made for a swap with this fabric and I love it.

  851. Emily says:

    I can’t possibly pick one fabric. I love almost everything that is either red and white or blue and white, and that doesn’t have flowers on it.

  852. Erin says:

    I recently purchase a vintage sheer floral print, I love it. It is a grey a pink rose pattern and I’m just waiting for the perfect project to use it.

  853. Jeanne says:

    I LOVE VINTAGE FABRIC, that being said there are 2 things that I always look for, Indian Head fabric and Feedsacks. Both are hard to find and harder to part with so when ever I see them I take notice if it is a print or solid I already have or something I “NEED” to add to my collection.

  854. Darla says:

    I love the new “Darla” fabrics…they look so fresh. My all-time favorite fabrics are the old Laura Ashley cottage-style fabrics. I grab them up when I see them at my favorite resale shop and am re-purposing them into a picnic blanket, pillow cases for my daughter, and napkins for the table.

  855. Mandy says:

    I love anything by Anna Maria Horner. I have a scrap bag of assorted Garden Party fabrics that I use very sparingly.

  856. Robin says:

    Love, love, love the fabrics. So many options to create fun stuff!

  857. Rachel Schlosser says:

    I love anything by Tina Givens

  858. Maple says:

    It’s really hard to choose…and I don’t have a lot of this but I love Batik fabrics. Maybe someday I’ll try dying myself, but for now I admire what others have done.

  859. Kelley says:

    I love Mendocino for the mermaids and seahorses, as well as the name. The town of Mendocino will always have wonderful memories for me. My favorite fabric that I recently worked with is an Echino print – the one with pigs with spiderwebs on their bottoms.

  860. marie beck says:

    I have been dying to aquire some japanese fabric, particularly this one that’s alice in wonderland… oh man the things I’d make with it… or the things I’d dream of making with it while I hord it forever, lol

  861. gillian says:

    Ginseng by Joel Dewberry is my favorite. Lovely design and great colors.

  862. Sarah S says:

    I’ve only seen some of the Anna Maria Horner Bohemian fabrics in pictures. It was around before my sewing time….so sad.

  863. Karie says:

    My Favorite fabric collection is any of the old Amy Butler fabrics… I just can not bring my self to cutting them, I just love looking at them.

  864. Tori says:

    I’m fairly new to sewing and just started quilting, so I am currently coveting any sort of fabric. It takes a lot of work to built up a stash from the beginning.

  865. Katy says:

    I love and stalked an Alexander Henry print for months. I searched across states when I traveled, and I finally found it. I love it so much I am having a hard time deciding what to do with it. I have started a small tote, but I bought a lot because I love it so much.

  866. Renee DeGroat says:

    After I made a bag with this fabric, I knew I needed more! I finally found 1 yard on etsy…..Paula Nadelstern fabric Gilded Opulence Madame Butterfly Marshmallow. Now I’m cherishing it. Hopefully someday I’ll put it to use!

  867. Leslie says:

    I can’t wait to get my hands on some of Anna Maria Horner’s fabric! Really pretty. Heather Ross’s book looks amazing too.

  868. Lisa says:

    I have been coveting Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden. Such beautiful, bright colors! Once I find the right project for this fabric, it will be used!! Really!! :-)

  869. Heather B says:

    I have Mendocino in my stash – it’s pulled out adored and put gently back where it is easily spied. I have a couple different pieces of this and I’m just trying to decide what to do, a dress for my daughter? something for me? I have a feeling that it will be used for something special this summer.

  870. Jessica says:

    I always fall back on anything Amy Butler.

  871. Nicole says:

    At the moment I am dreaming up clothing projects for my kiddos – a 2 year old daughter and now 5 month old son – and find myself loving the Michael Miller line Things that Go! How perfect for the little boys in our lives! Thanks for the chance!

  872. Jill says:

    I’m new to sewing so I’m just discovering fabric collections and designers to drool over. I found myself instantly enchanted by the Darla collection by Tanya Whelan that you featured above. I don’t think there is a single pattern in the collection that I don’t like!

  873. Shaz says:

    Valori Wells’ Sole. OMG, absolutely inspiring. I have a whole bunch waiting to be turned into quilts, though I suspect it’ll be a while before I can muster the courage to cut into all that loveliness. Some of it’s still available at the StitchinPost.com

  874. Mama Urchin says:

    I’ve been hoarding Denyse Schmidt’s county fair. I’m beginning to think I need to hoard Katie Jump Rope too.

  875. katie says:

    I love so many prints, I can’t name just one! I bought some great Pop Garden by Heather Bailey a few weeks ago and made it into an outfit for my daughter…I like almost anything by HB, Robert Kaufman, Amy Butler…and who made those pears a few years ago? Alexander Henry? I just can’t narrow it down to one! :0)

  876. Kristi M says:

    i am in love with Good Folks by Anna Maria Horner…… the prints are so bright and bold they make me happy all over.

  877. Stacy says:

    I would covet anything Amy Butler!

  878. miss v says:

    i have this super cute mushroom fabric that i just can’t get over. it’s nothing super fancy, but it is sooo adorable. i haven’t been able to force myself to use it … but i’ thinking a new purse for spring!

  879. April Coburn says:

    As a beginner at sewing, I don’t have a stash yet, but I love the Good Folk fabrics above. I have definitely been coveting Weekend Sewing though. I’ll take a chance to win.

  880. Beth-Ann says:

    I am really into Michael Miller prints right now. I am in the process of making a crayon roll for my friend’s son out of the Retro Rocket Rascals print. Super cute! Next I am making a pouch sling from his Esmerelda print. I can’t wait to go fabric shopping again to find some more of his patterns.

  881. Susan says:

    I love Alexander Henry fabrics…especially the cowboy/western prints. I wish they were easier to find in our local shops!

  882. aSprinkling says:

    I haven’t been doing enough sewing to have really found a favorite yet. However, I am a fan of the Katie Jump Rope line. I have also found some Japanese prints that I’m fond of, but have never actually bought any.

  883. karen says:

    My favorite is Heather Ross’s West Hill, so you can imagine how glad I am to see it back in stock at such a lovely price! Whether or not I win I’m going to get some to make summer clothes for myself and my son (I think the tadpoles print would make a cute skirt). I also like Heather Ross’s Mendocino, but West Hill is my favorite.

  884. Judy D. says:

    my very favorite is the West Hill horses in green…i keep stocking up and use it sparingly…love it!

  885. Susanna says:

    I found the most amazing vintage fabric at a thrift store last year. It looks like a sort of Miss Tiggy Winkle character in a bonnet and dress carrying a basket. But if you look closely the little person has wings and antennae. She’s a bug! The colors are all gold and orange and brown. I have no idea what I’ll use it for (it might creep some kid out!) but i’m waiting for that perfect project.

  886. Christina says:

    I’m brand new to sewing. Only bought my very own sewing machine last week. I’ve got a lot to learn, and still exploring all the amazing fabric choices that are available. I do love the look of japanese fabrics.

  887. Lori says:

    All time favorite?? Are you kidding? I couldn’t pick a favorite child, nor could I name just one favorite fabric (or even line). If I had to narrow it down I would have to say most everything by Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry.

  888. jill says:

    I have a stack of Freshcut hiding in my fabric bin in peaches and greens and browns just waiting for the right project. My favorite is a toss up between that and my Garden Party stash. They are both so lush and pretty.

  889. becky says:

    Beautious!! Love ‘em.

  890. Stacy says:

    I love just about anything by Alexander Henry. I have a 2 yard cut that I found at a Jo-ann Fabrics (who knew that they would stock that?!) and I have been saving it for a really inspiring gift. I have not found that project yet, so in the box it sits, waiting. I’d really love to win that book, but the fabric would be great, too! Thanks!

  891. Ellyn Z says:

    My favorite fabric line is whatever is newest…. constantly changing! Most recently it is Lizzy House’s Lizzy Dish fabric, it just makes me smile. I am down to my last few scraps & not wasting an inch of it! I saw Heather’s book at Barnes & Noble this past weekend & it’s beautiful!

  892. Bethany says:

    I have no idea who makes it but I’ve seen it in a couple of tutorials…white background with little trees in various shades of green. I absolutely love it!

  893. Melissa says:

    Right now I am loving Amy Butler fabrics. I love the bright colors and all of the fun girly patterns she has.

  894. Deb V says:

    Right now I have been collecting the Amy Butler line called Daisy Chain. I just love all the fabrics in that collection. Once I have enough, I want to make a quilt with those fabrics.

  895. Anna says:

    My favorite collection ever is certainly Flea Market Fancy… and unfortunately it falls in the “lamenting” category, since I discovered designer cottons too late! I sigh whenever I see the big bouquets print on gray.

  896. Anna says:

    I bought a collection of half yard cuts of about 6 different blue and green prints from Amy Butler’s line called Daisy Chain. I have them folded neatly on my shelf, waiting for the perfect project. I do love them and actually don’t want to cut them up into anything, but then again, that’s how I feel about most of my fabric. It’s all so pretty in the fun spring colors! Oh, I hope I win the book, the weekend is the only time I find any time to really sew.

  897. maggie says:

    That Mendocino fabric is heavenly, I used some to make a bag for my sis. I am coveting that book. Hope to get it for my birthday next month if I don’t win it here!

  898. Jordan Durbin says:

    I love Fairy Frost! I know it’s not really a “collection”, but it’s my all time favorite blender. For a truer collection, I have a hard time picking one, but maybe Garden Party!

  899. Emily S. says:

    I do love that Katie Jump Rope line- especially the Ribbon Flower pattern!

  900. Gina says:

    At this moment I love Heather’s Mendocino and Kaffee Fassett’s Henna. Now I wonder if they will look good together…

  901. Andrea says:

    Most recently I crave anything by Anna Maria Horner, but I have also always been drawn to Sandy Gervais’ fabrics (for Moda). She is from my hometown in Iowa and is a friend of my mom’s, but I had a large collection of her fabric in my stash before I ever figured that out!

  902. Elizabeth says:

    I am new to the sewing world, so I don’t know if I truly have a stash or a favorite yet. One of my favorites was a green and brown striped fabric that I made burp cloths with. I want to use that same one to make a quilt….

  903. crystalsews says:

    This fabric is awesome!!!

  904. Kati says:

    I have fallen in love with Micheal Miller’s stuff…the guitars…but especially the Marco Polo fabric. We just got some the other day and I can’t wait to make some stuff from it.

  905. Emily says:

    There was a fabric with sock monkeys…still kicking myself that I didn’t buy it.

  906. Sarah says:

    I love the Heather Ross collections– especially West Hill and Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries. I’m wishing I had stocked up on that VW Bus print before it got so ridiculously expensive. I already bought her Weekend Sewing book and it is awesome– just loaded with projects I can’t wait to try. But I would still love to win a copy to pass on to my friend Lisa (if she doesn’t win it herself!).

  907. Heather says:

    I’m still loving the Jessica Jones modern flora collection.

  908. Penny says:

    Right now I’m coveting Alexander Henry’s Starling line. I’m redoing my kitchen and that’s my fabric of choice ;-)

  909. Kirsten says:

    I’ve been coveting those green horses by Heather Ross…at that price, I may just have to break down.

  910. Kat says:

    I always find it difficult to name a definitive favorite. I guess I would have to say I guard my Erin Michaels paint by number birds most zealously. When I do find the nerve to cut into that it won’t be for anything less than the perfect project!

  911. Rita says:

    oooh, I LOVE the kimono dress in Heather Ross’ book! I think it would be so nice in a silk dupoini and a printed cotton obi.

    I tend to love a print until I use it and them I’m generally able to move on, so I really couldn’t pick my ALL TIME favorite print or line. But I was just looking on SMS and I LOVE the Block Printed Trees ~ Night and Day 2, so simple but so lovely. I also love the egg beaters fabric, so cute!

  912. Edith says:

    I have a tendency to hoard fabric I love, thinking that I have to find the perfect project for it. I’ve been eyeing Wendy Slotbloom’s feathered friends fabric, but I have yet to find a project for it.

  913. Jane E says:

    I love Amy Butler’s fabrics! Especially her ‘morning glory’ pattern – so pretty!

  914. Sarah says:

    I love remembering my Nana’s calendar dish towels. I wish I had them in my stash now but I think my mom has scooped them.

  915. Sarah says:

    My favorite is usually whatever I just bought! But I am just discovering Japanese prints and I love them.

  916. Dani says:

    *Sigh*, I love Heather Ross’ Lightning Bugs line, particularly the fish in bags. Oh how I wish I had bought some of that while I had the chance. I mean really, fish in bags? C’mon!

  917. Emmy says:

    I’m currently loving a natural handwoven cotton from Capsicum in Amsterdam, NL because it is turned out to be the most easy to work with purse fabric. However for prints, IKEA (strangely) currently have a collection of striped cotton which reminds me of deckchairs and sunny beach days, lovely to sew with and perfect for a summer bag collection.

  918. tracylee says:

    I have a lot of vintage pieces I have picked up now and then, and I also have scraps of quilts I have made that I treasure for the next project. We are temporarily living in a rental this year, and most of my stash is in storage. You don’t realize how much you cherish those perfect little prints until you don’t have access to them!

  919. Melissa says:

    Oh, to get my hands on that Katie Jump Rope fabric!

  920. Angie says:

    I can’t make myself cut into Heather Bailey’s Freshcut! Its just so pretty folded on the shelf all in nice little rows!

  921. Jenni says:

    i really loved (sniff sniff) this tiny orange flower print. I have no idea where it came from but I came across it in my stash one day and have smiled at it ever since.

  922. Rebecca says:

    I just love fabric in general, and I’m not really sure I can pick a favorite! LOL I have so many that I am hoarding in my stash :) I have quite a collection of 30′s reproduction prints that I really love and want to use “someday” in a quilt or other quilty project!

  923. Em says:

    Oh, I love Michael Miller’s BoHo blossoms. Such bright colors! Such pretty patterns! I didn’t buy any when I could find it … and now I can’t find it. Sad. Also, I recently bought a print from my local print shop that is lovely, but I don’t know what it is. I only bought a fat quarter, but I think I will have to go back and get some more. It’s asian-inspired, with peach, salmon, white, and lavendar cherry blossoms, a large crane and an equally large lavendar lotus. … Anyone know what this print is called?

  924. Lauren says:

    I ADORE the Anna Maria Horner ‘Good Folks’ collection. I just got a package of some of her fabrics in yesterday and am in love!

  925. Audrey says:

    My fabric stash is still in the wee infant stage, but I do have some batik I picked up in Africa that is waiting for a perfect patten and/or my sewing skills to catch up for it.

  926. cindy dodd says:

    7 years ago as we were getting ready to adopt our baby daughter from China, I found a selection of fabric from Michael Miller with little Chinese girls with umbrellas and coordinating colors. I had a pattern called “China Doll” which I used all the Michael Miller fabric to make it. There is a photo of it on my blog

  927. brittany says:

    i really love amy butler’s daisy chain! all those blues and greens!

  928. Courtney says:

    I’m having trouble figuring out what to do with my last bit of Tula Pink’s Full Moon Forest. I used the purple owl fabric in my baby’s nursery. I’m sad that it is out of print.

  929. Maranda says:

    Right now I’m totally loving Lizzy Dish, it’s so fresh and retro at the same time:)

  930. phyll says:

    I really like the denyse schmidt prints & the mermaids. Thanks

  931. Meika says:

    I love the joel dewberry aivary collection! I just wish I could find everything I like in the one place!

  932. Tara says:

    I am coveting Anna Maria Horner’s Garden Party! So beautiful!

  933. Ellen Ban says:

    Mine has to be Flea Market Fancy…wish I could find more blue and gray…Also hoarding anything Heather Ross!

  934. jennifer says:

    i love eyelet and linen fabrics. so beautiful!

  935. this ones easy – my all time favourite fabric collection is denyse schmidt flea market fancy, in particular the pattern featured in the skirt of the front cover of weekend sewing, although the chocolate brown is my most favourite colour way. I have two yards of it stashed away that i doubt i’ll ever use because i’ll be too scared to lose it! The saddest part is that I only started sewing again a year ago, and by the time I discovered these fabrics they were nearly all sold out everywhere! grrr. Still katie jump rope is pretty great too and I’ve bought lots of that :)

  936. Becky says:

    I’m afraid I haven’t lost my love for the old days of barkcloth especially the Eame’s style and my little dresses made of kettlecloth. This love let’s me really enjoy the modern prints with geometric anything in addition to all things red and black or yellow and black…. or teal or salmon or lilac or sage or royal blue or…..

  937. tanja says:

    I’m in love with my brown and pink My Folklore fabrics by Lecien. It’s so hard to start cutting them into pieces.

  938. Katiebelle says:

    I am hoarding the complete mendocino collection. If I’m having a bad day, I look at it and it makes me happy!

  939. Jessie says:

    The Amy Butler Lotus patterns are my favorite. That sweet cherry red and white print of the lotus sold out so fast, I have been keeping (hoarding?) a stash for use as the center squares on a log-cabin quilt.

  940. Lisa says:

    It’s so hard to pick a single fabric, right now I love the green Alexander Henry “yui kokeshi”

  941. Rita says:

    oh, i *LOVE* flea market fancy by Denyse Schmidt. I have some prints, but i miss so much that collection from shops! The bouquet print is my favourite in lime green and light blue :)

  942. I have some vintage cotton prints that I was given when I was in Highschool , so they have now moved 8 times and are still waiting for a girl to be added to our family so I can use them….sigh..I wonder if when the times comes I will actually be able to cut them!

  943. I just love all of the Darla line. I have been looking at it for some time and now that my spring sewing bug has hit i think i will plan a couple outfits for the girls around it!

  944. Ange says:

    Any of Sandi Henderdons Ginger blossom line. All her collections are so bright and cheerful and so covetable!

  945. Miya says:

    I’ve never been able to figure out the designer, but so many Japanese fabrics, with delicate tiny prints, little animals, little robots, little everything. They work on so many levels, from rad to sweet. I’m addicted. Completely! Heather Ross has some that remind me of the thoughtfulness in these Japanese prints.

    Have a lovely day!

  946. maryanne says:

    I had a vegetable print outfit that I LOVED when I was three or four years old. I know, vegetables…but they were made into cute little people. I think it would be so fun to find that fabric and make something for my daughter to see if she loved it too!

  947. Debra says:

    I received a fabric from the fat quarter swap. It had little Jack Russells on the green background.
    The only descrition in the salvage was something ” … museum for Marcus Brothers Textiles, Inc,”
    We lost our Jack Russell last year and I would love to find more of it.

  948. donette says:

    Amy Butler’s Lotus collection is what inspired me to start sewing. I made a queen size quilt from it and I am still drawn to her designs.

  949. Rachael says:

    I’ve been hoarding some of the VW fabric in pink by Heather Ross. I don’t know if I’ll ever find a project deserving of it!

  950. Maureen says:

    I would love some new project ideas! I am in love with toile however I always seem to choose floral prints. My favorite of all fabric is my Lilly Pulitzer fabric…..I save it and don’t want to cut it up!!!!
    Thanks!

  951. Niki says:

    I love 1930′s reproduction fabrics, as well as the civil war prints.

  952. Katie says:

    I am a sewing newbie…so I don’t know who makes what, but a local fabulous fabric store…st. theresa’s textile trove…sells some amazing fabrics. I have my eye on a bolt of fabric with ruby slippers all over it for a skirt for my wizard of oz loving 5 year old.

  953. Shannon says:

    I LOVE Heather Bailey’s Freshcut. I think it’s Gorgeous:) I wish I could cover my entire house in it.

  954. Cheryl says:

    My all time favorite fabric collection is Moda’s Simplicity. Sadly, I haven’t been able to find any more of it locally. I am loving the Darla line as well from Tanya Whalen. So beautiful and fresh. Reminds me of a summer cottage.

  955. Kelly Gayner says:

    I have this fabric that I’ve used for a few things – lamp shades, among others – but I’m getting stingy about the last little bit – it’s so pretty. It’s rather similar to Darla Rose Fuchsia, and makes me feel all cozy inside! Love Weekend Sewing, too – definitely on my wish list!

  956. Renee says:

    I really love Amy Butler Lotus!
    And would Love some fabric or the book!

  957. Tina B says:

    I LOVE any print by Heather Ross, especially the Mendocino line.

  958. Gerwerken says:

    A few years ago a friend gave me her entire fabric stash before a move overseas. In the mix was about a yard of gauzy paisley in the fall colors I love. My friend remembered only that it came from somewhere in New York, and I have been unable to find any more since. As a consequence, this fabric has been through several iterations, salvaged and recycled again and again.

  959. Sarah says:

    I love a sweet farm fabric that is a Japanese import. It’s all blue and hilly and evokes a real country feeling for me. Hoping to have the funds to buy some before it becomes impossible to find!

  960. Christina says:

    Shangri-La by 3 Sisters. I miss it!

  961. Ginny says:

    I’ve been slightly fixated on Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden for a while now. I’m fickle though and am considering moving on to Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks (I’m working on a top right now). :-)

  962. Robyn says:

    I’m pretty taken with that mendocino line…. I’m glad to see you are restocked on it!

  963. Amy Gray says:

    I really like Joel Dewberry’s aviary line… actually, I’m partial to anything with birds and seek them out whenever I can.

  964. lizap says:

    I wish had more of Alexander Henry’s pink zinnia to sew up something for spring.

  965. mary says:

    Hmm, choose one fabric would be so rough. Maybe one for each type of project I like to do? I’m currently in love with Alexander Henry’s April Showers.

  966. Beth says:

    Oh, I m so excited about this giveaway!

    My all time favorite line is Two Young Street by Prints Charming! I can’t wait to get my hands on their new range.

  967. Grace says:

    What a great giveaway! Heard so many great things about Heather Ross’ new book and I love the colorful patterns of Anna Maria Horner!

  968. Sinje says:

    I love love LOVE Ikea’s “Rosali” and every time I see it (which ahppens about once in two or three years) I buy as much as I can without getting too embarassed :)

  969. Southern Gal says:

    I love Darla and now you have it again. I also love Sweet from Moda. I’m partial to florals, stripes and bright colors.

  970. diana says:

    i love just about all fabric!! when i can’t justify buying fabric or just need a fix i run to a fabric store to just touch and massage the fabric on the bolt!! funny thing is my 41/2 year old daughter understands and loves to feel the farbic too!!! i do really enjoy 100% cotton!!!
    have a great day!!!!

  971. Maria says:

    Marimekko fabrics designed by Sanna Annukka!

  972. Sarah M says:

    I have too many to pick just one favorite! The Amy Butler prints are always high on my list. I love my small collection of Japanese cute prints.

  973. sarah says:

    love the fabric!

  974. Christy says:

    So many great ones out there! I currently like a lot of the prints in Mingle by Monaluna.

  975. Kristal says:

    I personally have kind of basic taste. I have always had a fondness for any red batiks since my grandmother introduced me to batiks over ten years ago when I was very young! Also, for some reason, I’ve been addicted to muslin lately – just plain, not bleached soft muslin. I know that’s kind of boring but there’s so much you can do with it!

  976. Leigh says:

    I’m so sad I never got any of Heather Ross’s Goldfish from the Lightening Bugs line…. I saw that fabric while I was in my knitting stage, not my current sewing one…. and now – I don’t know if I’ll ever have any of it!

  977. Sarah C says:

    I just love Anna Maria Horner’s color pallettes in all her fabric lines. As soon as I make some room in my closet, I’m going to buy some of her new line!

  978. Elizabeth says:

    I’ve been trying to find the perfect project for Mendocino.
    I don’t have any of the Japanese fabrics but I love the cute prints.

  979. Anne Mazzuchelli says:

    I bought 2 metres of a gorgeous cotton fabric nearly 4 years go that is to be made into a quilt for my daughter, a “Tinkerbell” fan. Its not your normal licensed fabric but a gorgeous array of deep purple, bright orange, lime green, watermelon pink and little Tinkerbells dotted throughout the material subtlely. I’m yet to work out my quilting pattern to best utilise this fabric.

  980. Cynthia Horst says:

    My favorite line is Anabella. That is one of my most favorite lines, but I have others too. There isn’t one piece of fabric that I long for, because there are too many!

  981. Ms. Cleaver says:

    Pretty much anything Michael Miller! I love his paper dolls print, I have some 50s style space kids, I love them so much that its hard to choose a worthy project!!

  982. christine says:

    I always find myself drawn towards tiny flowers and dots. I think they bring me back to childhood. Maybe that is why I am finding love with all the new fabric designers lately – so many remind me of my childhood. My mother sewed for me, mainly for economic reasons, but also because that is what her mother did. I’m now starting to do it for my daughter (and sons). Fond memories of shirts in little polka dots and flowers of the 70′s! Bring them back with a new century flair!! love them!!! I second the praise for Heather Ross’ book – I have been coveting it at the bookstore and at my local craft store – paging through longingly and thinking of when I can justify the cost…..

  983. Anjana says:

    I am German and I really love Oilily fabrics. My fav is the Lilly fabric.

  984. Christine Bolin says:

    I saw fabric online that I really wanted to buy. It was cowboy Christmas. I have some sort of wierd cowboy fabric addiction. But, it was more than I normally spend, and they ran out before I convinced myself to buy some.

  985. Kimmer says:

    Right now, I’m yearning to buy a few yards of an embroidered denim I saw last week. Have to finish Easter sewing first, though!

  986. Heidi says:

    My absolute favorite fabric is Afternoon Delight in Charcoal by Alexander Henry. I have like 2 itsy bitsy scraps that I don’t think I can do anything with, but I’m still keeping them!

    That West Hill collection is pretty sweet.

  987. jo says:

    i am coveting just about everything i see! as a newbie i just want it all – but if i had to choose at the moment i would go for the widham botanical pop range as i am planning a quit in that fabric.

  988. Tina Mackey says:

    I love love love Good Folks!

  989. N. says:

    I love almost all the Alexander Henry prints although some of them like the pop art food I’m not sure that I’ll ever use!

  990. Deb says:

    I love the Denise Schmidt Jump Rope collection. And I also love Heather Bailey’s bright and colorful prints. I’d love to be entered for the book giveaway.

  991. rachelmp says:

    I have a sentimental spot for the 3 sisters range Seaside Rose. My two sisters and I were all pregnant with little girls at the same time and I made us all samplers and baby quilts from that range. It always makes me think of that special time with my sisters.

  992. Jamie says:

    I love my HR gnome fabric… I love it so much I am afraid to use it :o( Maybe someday I’ll find that perfect project for it!

  993. Linda says:

    I love the good folks fabric from Anna Maria Horner!

  994. Pam says:

    I LOVE the Darla line–absolutely adorable!

  995. I love the fabrics of Anna Maria Horner!

  996. Amanda says:

    This month I am trying really hard to craft with only the things I have on hand. Right now I am working on a short-sleeved dress for my 2 year old daughter which I made using one of her Daddy’s old button-down collared shirts. I am appliqueing a butterfly on the pocket using fabric from another old shirt. It’s pretty cute! But, if I won some fabric, I think that would not be cheating ;) I am coveting fabric in the style of Heather Ross’ West Hill. I have her book and I absolutely LOVE it!

  997. Gaby says:

    I love horse prints, every time I see one, I buy a fat quarter, one day they will all be turned into a quilt (maybe).

  998. Kaylee says:

    I am loving just about anything Moda!

  999. Melanie says:

    I love novelty and 30′s prints. My recent faves are Aunt Grace travel fabrics. And I love the West Hill you have up there!!

  1000. Any of the Kaffe Fassett ranges for Rowan could be my favourites – I expecially like the Roman Glass prints. And I have a tiny piece of IKEA blue, red and pink gingham from 2002 that I adore and lament!

  1001. Kristin says:

    I love the original Katie Jump Rope … and American Jane’s Look and Learn.

  1002. Celainea says:

    I love it all! I’ve not met a fat quarter I didn’t like. .

  1003. Grace says:

    I love Joel Dewberry’s ginseng line, especially the orchid print. I’ve already made two bags and a pencil skirt out of it, and still want more!

  1004. Marilyn says:

    Oh the Weekend Sewing book looks lovely!

  1005. molly says:

    That is really tough. How does one choose? Right at this moment it might be this: http://www.baumtextile.com/cgi-bin/fabricshop/gallery.cgi?func=show&file=3&Category=244&Page=1&v=1

  1006. Maya says:

    I’m too new to sewing to have an all times favorite, but what I’m seriously craving now is a red fabric with white polkadots on it. Hope to get one next week. Oh, and that second Darla fabric you’ve got up there (red damask on white) – I’d love to have it too!
    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Maya

  1007. Amy says:

    I have hoarded a little Amy Butler Kimono in the Eggplant colorway. I bought it all after it was discontinued, too! Now, I just need to figure out what I truly want to do with it.

  1008. Monique says:

    My favorite is a collection of assorted Gingham I own (all colors and all sizes) I know …..not very original but it reminds me of a Pantsuit my mom made me when I was little ) it was in 4 different colors of gingham (each side , both front and back) and then appliques with even more different colors.

    I remember I loved it (it was a halter style) OH the memories!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1009. Carrie says:

    I’m in love with Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks right now. So vibrant and fun.

  1010. Anna says:

    I love IKEA’s Gunilla-collection by Sissi Edholm and Lisa Ullenius.

  1011. Shannon says:

    I love Amy Butler’s Belle collection. I wish I had the funds to buy it all.

  1012. Christine says:

    My favorite fabric is something I bought at a discount decorating fabric store many years ago. It is decorator weight quality and has four panels. Each panel has a tree. One tree has foilage for fall, one snow for winter, one birds for spring, and flowers for summer. I have three of them for twelve panels total. Two had a little stain but I got it almost totally out. Someday I will use it for a wall hanging.

  1013. Jennifer says:

    I just *love* Feathered Friends by Wendy Slotboom; perfect for creating a fun and colorful but not gaudy nursery!

  1014. Stacey says:

    i collect fabric with sheep on them!!!

  1015. Bree says:

    Can’t go past Amy Butler I’m afraid! The lady is an institution!

  1016. I scour the internet for vintage scottie fabrics. The old feed sacks. Lots of reproductions coming out but nice to have the “real” thing for certain projects.

  1017. Bethany Scott says:

    I love the vintage floral looks that seem to be coming back in style. I also love polka dots.

  1018. Marie Rostron says:

    I’ve been missing a print by Robert Kauffman– a beautiful leaf-and-tree-inspired one that came in both blue and green. I coveted when it was available, but came too late to buy! I don’t know if it’s no longer manufactured, but it surely was pretty!

    Not that there aren’t a ton of pretty prints around–my current fav. being any of the colors of the “Daisy Boquet/Daisy Chain” fabrics–lovely!

  1019. Mam says:

    I have a yard of Alexander Henry’s Vintage Kids that I have been holding onto for years. Each time I think I found the perfect pattern to use with the fabric, I can’t bring myself to cut it.

  1020. Lori says:

    I have a hard time cutting into any of my fabrics!! Is there a support group for that?

  1021. Rina says:

    I am so excited to see Mendocino again – that’s what I’ve been coveting recently.

  1022. Kym says:

    My absolute favourite fabrics have all come from the op (thrift) shop. That may just be due to the excitement that comes with finding a pretty little piece hiding away, waiting to be found underneath the polycottons leftover from the 80′s.

  1023. Celeste says:

    Anything Amy Butler!

  1024. Emma Ansell says:

    I love the Michael Miller print of the eiffel tower I lined a bag with it for my Mum for mother’s day, she’s going to love it!!

  1025. Sara says:

    I have a collection of Heather Bailey prints that I have hoarded. In guilty of ditching out on a long term quilting class as to not cut into the stash.

  1026. rita c. says:

    I love Amy Butler and her fabric line :)

  1027. Emily S says:

    I have a fat quarter that i received in a vintage sheet shop that is covered in a sweet, whimsical zoo motif. Definitely waiting for a special project!

  1028. Karen says:

    I love any vintage fabrics which have that lovely dephinium blue colour. It is so easy to mix and match them.

  1029. Alissa says:

    I simply cannot get enough of Mingle and Metro Market! And I’m coveting the sneak peaks of ‘Far Far Away’…but realistically knowing I probably won’t get any…

  1030. Dorte says:

    I myself have been hoarding the print ‘coriander’ by Amy Butler – made in a small version on light cotton, and in a bigger version on more canvassy, heavy fabric perfect for bags. I think it is the most balanced print of all, taht fabric has been my fave ever since I first saw it… the colours, the lightness, the movement of the stems on the background…. I think I have some of all the colours, the khaki-with-yellow being the best, but I cannot help it – when I see somebody selling their last pieces of coriander, I have to buy them… all coriander is safe with me, I only use it very rarely… mainly I just stroke it and smile… :-)

    Hi, I am Dorte, and i am a fabric addict!!!!

  1031. Maggie says:

    Chocolate Lollipop by Anna Marie Horner. I love those fabrics. I wish I had a bolt of everything in in! I miss it when they go away …

  1032. Jennifer Probasco says:

    I am in love with “Flower Power” and “Darla”. The colors are absolutely fabulous! Have you ever had something that was so pretty and inspiring but you just couldn’t bring yourself to cut it up? My daughters are still awaiting their twirly skirts!!

  1033. Samantha t says:

    Heather Ross… such yummy designs!

  1034. Alice S says:

    Freshcut by Heather Bailey is probably my all-time favorite fabric line. I have to say that Darla is beautiful too. Its probably my favorite for making little girls’ clothes. That or anything from Sandi Henderson. This question is too hard to answer!

  1035. trashalou says:

    With all my heart I adore Amy Butler ‘Mid-west Moderns’. Yes it is ubiquitous and all but that surely proves how fabulously versatile and gorgeous it is. I have just ordered 28 fat quarters mixed between ‘Daisy Chain’ and M-W M’ and eagerly anticipate their arrival. Does this count as covetting?

  1036. Tiffany says:

    I love any vintage fabrics that I can find, whether it be at a thrift shop or a flea market!
    What a great book you are giving away, best of luck to everyone!

  1037. Sílvia says:

    Right now I’m totally in love with “Wonderland by MoMo”… just great this line.

  1038. I’ve had my eyes on Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt for a long time!

  1039. Steph says:

    I haven’t been collecting fabric long, but I have to say right now I am loving this adorable corduroy fabric with butterflies on it that I have. I am dreaming of making a jumper with for my expected baby!

  1040. Maryanne says:

    I love anything with cherries on it. My grandmother made me a gorgeous cherry dress when I was about 5 and I think it all started there – I made my eldest daughter a summer dress that was navy with a lovely big juicy cherry print on it and in my stash I have a beautiful soft olivey green baby cord with a cherry print to make my youngest a winter pinafore. I can already imagine her with a little red skivvy and tights underneath it. So delicious!

  1041. Aine Mahon says:

    I love japanese prints too. I especially love the ones with mushrooms and squirrels – I saw one with red riding hood once. so cute!

  1042. Trinity says:

    I am hoarding some beautiful Korean silk that my husband bought for me from the Dongdaemun fabric market in Korea. It is so beautiful and traditional that I just can’t seem to bring myself to use it!

  1043. Becky Aguiar says:

    ooh, I love the Darla Collection, it’s so modern and kitchy at the same time!

  1044. It sounds a tad lame, but I absolutely love Michael Miller clown stripes in nearly every colorway. It’s so practical, bright and well spaced

  1045. jennifer says:

    I love/hoard/covet anything Heather Ross! There is a Red riding hood Japanese fabric I want to hoard/covet but know one sells it anymore:(

  1046. I searched your shop for the print I like best, but there are so much amazing print – I can´t choice only one. I love Silverware Blocks, Dotty Spring and Apples Multi.

    My all time favourite print is by coincidence heather ross’s pink campervans, I love it so much I havent been able to cut into it yet, and just love looking at it. I am afraid of choosing the wrong project for it. I an idiot I do realise, but when I was younger we went for a trip the length of Australi in a campervan just like the print and it just evokes memories of the time.

  1048. Norma in NZ says:

    I love ‘sew now! sew wow!’ by Alexander Henry. Hmm, I love the vibrant colours.

  1049. Well, I’ve got two.

    1) A beautiful orange and brown striped Heather Ross fabric…so pretty!
    2) Some ‘Leonie Linen’ from my local fabric store. It was really good quality and only AU$5/metre!

  1050. Lisa says:

    I have just started crafting after a long break. I am so disappointed in the fabrics available in the UK and am in the process of identifying suppliers outside the UK. So far my favorite is Alexander Henry but I think that Heather Ross will be added to my growing list of favorites!

  1051. Beth Gourbiere says:

    I love the Heather Ross print with the horses…so vintage-feeling and lovely. I’d like to make something out of it, but I’m not sure what.

  1052. I absolutely love Robert Kaufman’s Iota Spring Garden in Citrus. It took me a few months to source some but I finally did and bought about 6 or 7 yards !! I just love that there are so many different colours that go with it. Here’s a dress I made recently:

  1053. Dallas says:

    I’ll admit that I’m totally hoarding away some of Heather Ross’ VW Buses. I’ve got a vintage VW Bus, so I had to have some of this fabric, especially the blue which matches my bus. But now I’m afraid to actually cut into it and use it up. :)

  1054. Serena says:

    I’ve been wanting “Weekend Sewing” sooooo bad!

    Pick a favorite fabric? Now, that’s almost impossible. But one that I’m hoarding and that I will never cut into is Heather Ross’s Gnome fabric. I love it, absolutely love it. I did hem the edges to use as a receiving blanket, but I’ll never be able to cut it up and use it for anything else.(Hm, incidentally, the yard I have was won on a FFF.)

  1055. Mel says:

    Wow, that’s a hard question! To pick a favorite . . . ummm I guess I’d pick a print from Chez Moi. I’ve made a few things with the fabric I purchased, should have bought the bolt! I keep finding uses for every single scrap because I don’t want to waste an inch! I’m making tiny, tiny hexagons with the pieces I have left . . . and then it will be gone!! But I have some wonderful projects that have that beautiful print in every one!

  1056. vadcic says:

    I love Hoffman’s fabric,and turquise with brown,and oliva with brown,and pink and lime,and….

  1057. tonya lemos says:

    I love Heather Ross’s Mushrooms and Gnomes….I am not sure what the collection is called but I have been hoarding a fat quarter of each!!! Just love those gnames Not really sure what I will use them for…

  1058. B says:

    I am coveting the new Anna Maria Horner Good Folks line. Man, I need to get my hands on some of that!

  1059. Lisa says:

    My current fave is Amy Butler Midwest Modern Collection!

  1060. Coralee says:

    I am loving Alexander Henry’s Mocha Chocolate and as of yet haven’t been able to purchase any.

  1061. Darlamom says:

    I love Alexander Henry’s “Traffic Jam,” the one with the blue background. It’s so hard to find good boyish prints, and I know my two boys would love it. I gotta say, I am definitely drawn to the “Darla” prints, since it’s my name! Other than that, I have always found myself lingering over 30′s reproduction fabric; I’ve just never found the perfect project to use them on; I think one day I’ll need to make a baby quilt from them or something. They’re so colorful and fun.

  1062. Steph says:

    That Darla line is gorgeous. I am a sucker for Alexander Henry’s fabrics but I only have a tiny bit.

  1063. kate says:

    oh, it is so hard to pick one, but aside from ALL heather ross prints, i love, and am hording alexander henry “tulips”. i have it in the orange/brown colorway and wish i’d snagged some of the blue/green, too. It is such a fun print, and it is awesome for binding. love it!

  1064. monique says:

    I have been hanging onto a cute flannel print with umbrellas and raindrops for years! Some dayI will my PJ pants from it… but I know I will wear them forever, until they are falling apart, and it makes me a little sad that I may one day have to throw them out ;)

  1065. Michelle says:

    I had this pretty black and white floral print I bought when I first got into sewing. I dont know the name of the designer, but I do know, it was BEAUTIFUL and went with EVERYTHING. I used a few yards and various things which i gave away and even was able to let my friend have some to make a pillow from it. Now its gone, and I just find bits and swatches here and there in my bags of sewing stuff. I like to hold it up to other fabric I buy and think of how perfect it would be if I had more.

  1066. wendyvh says:

    I keep seeing Michael Miller’s “Retro Rocket Kids” fabric and it always gives me a chuckle.

    I don’t have any kids, and I haven’t come up with a suitable excuse to buy it yet . . . but I find it oddly charming (even though it runs counter to my usual tastes). Weird, huh?

  1067. Helly says:

    Urrr…… My Folklore by Lecien. I used part of it to make a baby carrier, and I’m keeping the scraps for something special!

  1068. Mendocino by Heather Ross
    I LOVE the octopus (yellow background with orange and blue/teal) print it just inspires me with the color and the shapes I have made a very cute skirt for my daughter with it, and am planning on a matching one for my self..

  1069. Georgi P. says:

    I made my diaper bag out of a discontinued Kaffe Fassett that I LOVE but can’t remember the name of. I’m seriously considering asking him if he’ll ever reprint it! My second favourite is City Park in blue by Alexander Henry.

  1070. Christina says:

    I’ve been holding on to some Echino for something special…so hard to use! I too have been scoping out the Mendocino and hope to do some in my little girl’s room, also glad to see you have it stocked!

  1071. selina says:

    I saw a blue and gray fabric (clean modern feel) with spoons and forks on it maybe even a plate. It also comes in gray and cream that I thought was simply adorable and perfect for making a splat mat for my daughter.

    It went out of stock in my local store before I could buy it. Would love to know if anyone could identify the designer!

  1072. Mel says:

    I love handyded balis, since you can use them for soooo many things – love “painting” with them mcKenna Ryan style.

  1073. Shellyfish says:

    I’m pretty new to sewing so I don’t have a big stash yet – but I did buy some of the most beautiful light-weight corderoy from my local marché – I don’t know who it’s by or when it’s from because the fabric is sold “dégriffé” – meaning they pull off the identifying tags so it can be sold at a discount price, etc. It’s so pretty – I’ve had it for about 9 months, and have lots I want to make with it but can’t seem to bring myself to cut into it!

  1074. Kristin L says:

    The Katie Jump Rope line is destined to be a classic.

  1075. Rebecca Woods says:

    I love Nancy Halvorsen’s fabrics. I love the autumny (is that a word) colours as they remind me of what a real autumn should be. Living in Australia the seasons are what I miss the most since I moved here from Canada. And its been 25 years!!!!

  1076. Ann says:

    I’m still besotted with Faye Burgos Sachet Flannels even though I don’t like flannels!

  1077. Marcella says:

    Not sure who makes it but the japanese fabric with the little robots is my favorite! Use it for all my matching craft cases!

  1078. I love the old novelty prints but the new ones are pretty too. I couldn’t pick just one but a style I have always loved is toile…. it is so whimsical and lovely. It was my early favorite!

  1079. elizabeth says:

    I’ve been coveting Mendocino… and I see you have it back in stock there!
