  1. Love, love, love the fabrics!!

    I'm going to have to go with #1, there is nothing on her facebook page or website that states she went to the Savannah College of Art and Design, or at least I couldn't find anything. And you wouldn't go to an art school for public policy. ;D

  2. Well, I love everything lemon too so I don't think it is #3.

    I thought maybe #2 but changed my mind after looking at FB and website.

    I think she did not go to SCAD.

  3. Oh I love those little monkeys! I am just guessing No 1. The other 2 sound pretty wild and so they are probably true. πŸ™‚

  4. I think statement #1 is false. I love, love her fabrics, her site and her blog!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say number 1 is false. Wow, what beautiful designs Ann has! Went to her blog, and love it. Thanks, FQS, for bringing awesome designers to our attention. πŸ™‚

  6. I'm gonna guess number 1 (only because that seems like the general favorite). Love the fabrics, and can think of SOO many fun things to do with those!

  7. I'm going to guess #1.

    {PS if my name is drawn, please redraw as I won the recent bloggers bundle).

    I'm going to scrape up some money to get this bundle and maybe more! It's too cute!

  8. Wow, I'm stumped on this one but I'll go with what most other people are saying and guess #1. Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

  9. "She went to the Savannah College of Art and Design" is false. I just love Anne's designs and colors, they make me happy!

  10. This line of fabric is as cute and as fun as can be. I think #1 is false. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Everyone have a super great sewing and stitching day.

  11. Hmmmm . . . #2 (#1 is possible and her lists of things she loves includes lemons in her drinks). Thanks for the chance . . . love the fabric!

  12. Well I did a little research. First, I googled #1 and check. Then I checked out Ann's awesome blog!!! So cool! I love the 1000 things she is thankful for! I found some lemon things so #3, check. So I am going to guess that #2 is false. Love your fabric collection!

  13. Love the little animals, too cute!! I think #1 is false. Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize.

  14. This is a tough one! I just spent the last 15 minutes reading Kelle's blog and am still a little uncertain about my choice but I will say that #1 is false.

  15. My guess is that the lie is that she likes lemons. I love this fabric line-as my friend says it screams my name, bright and fun!

  16. Hello from France, where it is impossible to find those wonderful fabrics…
    Really don't know, but I have a chance to win this fatquarter bundle, i would say #3 is false

  17. Hi Just love Ann Kelle's new fabric line. My 3 words to describe it are Adorable, Colorful, and precious. I think question #2 is false. Thanks for the chance to win the giveable. I sure would love to have it

  18. What a fabulous and fun collection of fabric — super, super colours. I'm going to guess that the first statement is false.

  19. I LOVE your new bundle, it is co cute and fun. I think statement #2 is false. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  20. What a great giveaway! I love Ann's fabrics -such fun, vibrant prints! My guess is #1 is false… it appears from her blog that she made her way into design quickly and she was self-taught!

  21. I'll guess #1.
    This would be great for my little monkey granddaughter's quilt! She would go nuts over those prints!
    Very cute bundle!

  22. I think the first comment is false. Thanks for the chance to win such cute fabrics!

  23. I'm going to guess 2 because its an underdog. I would love to make a quilt for my little grandson. His birthday is next month. Thank you.

  24. I am going to guess #3 is false.. I don't think there is lemon ice cream.. lemon sherbet yes.. but not lemon ice cream.. so strech the truth into a lie, and you can't make a good one LOL.. Love to drool over that fabric though.. oh gosh it is just SOOO cute!!

  25. My guess is that she doesn't like lemons so #3.
    That fabric is awesome! I would LOVE to win that since I have a Grandson arriving in early September and a 3yr old Granddaughter I could totally make some super cute stuff for with all that fabric.

  26. Just guessing, but I think #1 is false. Love the fabric-I can think of a bunch of my favorite little monkeys that would love a quilt from these prints!!

  27. LOVE, love, LOVE the fabric! I'm guessing #1 only because I couldn't find it on your blog. But your taste in fabric is totally awesome. πŸ™‚

  28. I'm guessing #1 is not real, follow your blog so I know you like lemons πŸ™‚ keep up the great work, your stuff is adorable!

  29. At first I was going to go with #3, but I just love lemon too much to assume someone doesn't, so I'm going to go with #1. She's awesome isn't she???

  30. my first guess was #3, because she said LOVE, but then I thought…and maybe #2, because who is really FRIENDS not "friends" with a rapper…but she didnt say WHO and my husband THINKS he's a rapper…so maybe along those lines, which leaves me with #1

    my guess is #1, because I eleminated the other two choices!

  31. I think #1 is false.
    I love these fabrics – what a great collection! Thanks for the chance to win…

  32. I love the monkeys! I think No. 1 is false. Seems a little too obvious.

  33. Since I can't find any confirmation of #1–the only one possible to research with any certainty–I'm going to say that #1 is false. Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. I'm going to guess that #1 is false since I've read that "Ann's" first job had to do with city policy.
    I absolutely adore this collection, especially the turtles!

  35. I think #1 is false πŸ™‚ Mostly because I like lemons, too, and I wish my best friend were a rapper πŸ™‚

  36. I'm guessing #1 too, because if it were true it wouldn't be on this list… super cute fabrics, thanks for the chance to enter!

  37. I love the fabric it loos fresh, colourful and cute.
    I think #2 might be the false one.



  38. I hope I am not wrong but I think it must be #3 – Ann doesn't like lemons at all!
    Wonderful fabrics – in my head I see a fun quilt for my little nephew of 2 years old.

  39. The 1st statement is false. Kelle Boyd did NOT go to Savannah College of Art and Design. I love Ann Kelle. Her fabric is so cheerful!

  40. I think #1 is false, there's no mention on her bio of attending or graduating from SCAD…
    Ann's wonderful fabrics ARE Summer!
    Thanks for the giveaway, and Happy 4th of July!!

  41. #1 is false! Of course, I still love the designs and have no idea how one person keeps cranking out the sweetest little fabrics …

  42. WOW the colours are beautiful!! #3 is false (although I DO LOVE lemons!!)

  43. I'll pick no. 1 as it sound the most likely thing a designer 'should' have done but Ann's designs are so appealing that I bet she has natural talent and didn't need to go to college to succeed!

  44. I'm going to say that Number #3 is false. I'm thinking she's like my friend who hates lemons and thinks they taste like the smell of Pledge πŸ™‚

  45. I'm really hoping number 1 is false because I would love to be in with a chance to win – I love those fabrics.

  46. I'd say #1 is incorrect because I think Kelle's first job was in public policy. Fingers crossed my "research" is correct. Thanks for the chance.

  47. This was a fun challenge. I'm certain of one that is correct, inferring about another and no clue about the remaining. So here goes, I know who her best friend is but I don't know what Lulu does. But I'm going to guess that she is not a rapper. (So #2 is the untruth.) In any event, I think the fabrics are totally fab! Thanks for the chance.

  48. I'll go with #2, with the caveat that the friend probably isn't a professional rapper (with enough ETOH, any of us can rap). I love
