  1. Vintage Days, I love stars and, of course, Scrumptious … a match made in heaven:-)

  2. I love them all, but if I have to choose it would be primrose and poppies, with vintage days a close second!


  3. This is a tough one…so many super cute patterns! But if I were going to commit to one today, it would probably come down to Primrose and Poppies…cannot resist all those triangles πŸ™‚ Maybe Sunnyside by Kate Spain to go with. Thanks for all the Market fun!

  4. Wow how can I choose just one favorite!! I love Primrose and Poppies and Vintage Days. They both would be so pretty with Urban Mod. Thanks for a fabulous tour and giveaway!

  5. I love All Aboard…and I think it would be adorable in Sweetwater's new collection Road 15

  6. I LOVE "William's Crossing" pattern. I even "LOVE" it made from "LOVE" by Collections for a Cause….LOVE that line.

  7. All of the patterns were wonderful.
    I loved the All Aboard and Vintage Days I can't hardly wait to get patterns and fabric. Wish I had been there with you

  8. I love the Primrose and Poppies and Hamptons but there are others that I know I'll want to make! Can't wait for the new Scrumptious to be available.
    Wish I could be at quilt market! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Some many awesome patterns! I am especially loving Hamptons, and I think I would make it in the same Midwinter Reds as shown. So gorgeous!!!

  10. I think that Hamptons would look beautiful in Vin du Jour by French General.

    Spring Quilt Market looks like so much fun!

  11. Vintage Days with 30's Playtime Fat Quarter Bundle Chloe's Closet for Moda Fabrics. All of her patterns are so cute!

  12. Hmm…that's a tough one. I like the Gallery of stars and the Hamptons. I'd like to see the first one in batiks and the second in any of the French General lines.

  13. The Hamptons pattern looks good to me. I discovered the new fabric line "Savonnerie" by Sandy Klop and believe it would be a good choice for the quilt pattern.

    Thanks for all the Quilt Market photos, Kimberly. I'd love to win some It's Sew Emma patterns.

  14. Really like the simplicity of Through the Looking Glass, it would really be great as a baby blanket in Hooty Hoot Returns.

  15. I love Vintage Days and would like to see it in something more vintage-y – say… Honeysweet?

  16. I love William's Crossing and would make it with Greatest Hits.

  17. My favorites are "Primrose and Poppies" and, "Vintage Days", sorry I trimmed at down to only 2. I love to make both in Noteworthy, by Sweetwater. I think they would be absolutely beautiful. Thanks for letting us all tag along at market. ;-> Toni Anne

  18. All Aboard is definitely my favorite. I think it would look cute in the Thomas the Train line – "Who's That Train."

  19. I love the All Aboard quilt! How cute! I think it would look good in solids so as not to take away from the pattern of the quilt itself.

  20. I like Primrose and Poppies and would probably do it in the Wallflowers. It is very pretty and relaxing. I need to work on my squares. LOL … Thanks for giving us the chance to win these lovely patterns. It was hard to choose just one.

  21. All Aboard made with Flats just as pictured! But I'm also fond of gingham and polka dots! Our town has an annual Railroad Festival & this would be perfect!

  22. My favorite, Hampton (hard to pick just one!). I think it would great in Amanda Murphy's Holiday Bouquet line of fabric.

  23. I love so many of these patterns! I really love that train from All Aboard-if I only knew someone to make it for!!!! I also really love Primrose and Poppies! I am thinking about adding several more blocks to make it a queen size for my guest room bed. If I do that, I would be pulling fabrics from several collections. Or, I could make it for my room with the pinks,turquoise and greens from Glamping.

  24. Ooh, tough decision. Through the Looking Glass would be fabulous in Ann Kelle's Girl Friends (princesses, mermaids, and ballerinas) and some of her Remix fabrics. Primrose and Poppies would be lovely in Lario (or any other cottage floral line).

  25. I really like through the looking glass, as for fabric to make with it…I think just about anything would work:), but I'd love to make it with Happy Go Lucky!

  26. I love Primrose and Poppies, and also Vintage Days, but my favorite favorite is Through the Looking Glass.


  27. I would choose Primrose and Poppies and I am anxiously awaiting the release of Jeni Baker's Nordika!

  28. I would choose Primrose and Poppies and I am anxiously awaiting the release of Jeni Baker's Nordika!

  30. I love Primrose and Poppies with Honeysweet. So many cute new patterns!

  31. Hmm, I'm not sure what fabric I'll choose, but I definitely think I need to make the All Aboard pattern for my grandsons!!

  32. I love Vintage Days and the Heirloom Kansas City Star! Being a Kansas City girl I have several quilts from the KC Star and love all of them!

  33. I like Vintage Days with blushing, very pretty and the pillow cases are an added bonus.

  34. Definitely All Aboard in Flats! I don't even have a little boy to make it for but it is such a fab pattern I think my girls would love it too!

  35. I think Vintage Days is my favorite, although it sure is hard to pick just one!

  36. I like the Primrose and Poppies pattern and I would use the Redwork Lazy Disy Baskets. Love the antiqu look of the red and white fabric! πŸ™‚

  37. Acacia by Tula Pink used to make Primrose and Poppies from Sew Emma.
    All of your new quilt designs are cute, and your photo tour from market is wonderful. Thanks for sharing. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  38. Primrose and Poppies and Vintage Days are my Favs! I would probably pair them with Happy Go Lucky from Bonnie and Camille or Glimma. I have been wanting to get my hands on those fabrics! Thanks for a great giveaway and congrats on a great Quilt Market showing!

  39. I like the Hamptons! But the Primrose and Poppies is cute to and looks like it could be a classic. Ohhh and All Aboard would be great for a boy… ;o)

  40. Definitely All Aboard is my favorite. But they all look like they would be so fun to sew. Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. Love, LOVE, LOOOOOOVE Hamptons (already purchase the pattern) and would pair it with Midwinter Reds (hard tp improve on perfection) or any of the French General fabrics

  42. I love Vintage Days – it would be great in almost ANY fabric line – I would love to try it in Happy go Lucky!

  43. I'm all about quilts for my little boys at the moment as a result I think that Through the Looking Glass would be my current favourite and I would team it up with the forthcoming Stonehenge Out of this World.

  44. I really love teh Vintage days pattern. I think it would look spectacular made out of Eternal Love and Joy dena Designs for Free Spirit and I think it would also look really cool out of Chateau by Timeless Treasures…

  45. I fell in love with All Aboard, my late husband retired from the Alaska RR and trains were in his blood – he now has a 2 yr old grandson (he never met) and I am sure that he would love this quilt in his room. Not sure what fabrics I would use – love the choices you made.

  46. My favorite pattern is all aboard. I will I would want to pair it with Riley Blakes One For The Boys fabric line by Zoe Pearn

  47. I love them all, but this time I truly have a favorite and it is Hamptons…I would stick with the Mid Winter Reds, I love it just as it is displayed. thanks so much for a chance to win this gorgeous pattern…

  48. I love the Hamptons pattern the best and I think it would look great with Joy by Dena Designs. I saw the fabric line today and it's gorgeous.

  49. Love All Aboard and I wouldn't change a thing so I would do it in Flats. I've had my eye on that quilt since it was first shown – I love it. Thanks for the chance.

  50. I LOVE Primrose and Poppies! I think it could be fun in Happy Go Lucky.
    So excited for this giveaway!

  51. I like Primrose and Poppies. I can see it in something bright like Happy Go Lucky or in something by Kansas Troubles. Thanks for the chance!

  52. Would love all aboard to send to an old high school friend from many years ago! And I would love the flats! I think he would like that! Be it for him or his grandson! Thanx for the chance

  53. I'd have to go with Through the Looking Glass, which I'd make with Woodland Pals by Ann Kelle. I love her cute little animals!

  54. I loved to try the Hamptons with Celebration collection, just to see what I could do with a little more color. They are all very beautiful!

  55. Vintage days is beautiful in scrumptious and would be my favorite. But I also love the red in midwinter reds –either in vintage days or in the hamptons. Beautiful collections!

  56. Ooh this is a tough choice, but as soon as I saw Hamptons I fell in love! I would also use that Midwinter Reds because it looks so beautiful. I can't wait for that fabric to be released!

  57. I love Through the Looking Glass. It would be great for showing off fabric prints that you didn't want to cut too small!

  58. If I HAVE to choose, I love Primrose and Poppies just as is…. Wallflowers is the perfect choice! Love them all! Thanks for the opportunity!

  59. I really like Vintage Days and it is exquisite paired with Blushing. So elegant. And the colors are great!!

  60. OOhhh the Hamptons looks lovely. I am really liking the French General fabrics at the moment so I would make it using this fabric.

  61. Loving Vintage Days for myself and I love the collection shown! Expecting baby boy #3 though so I am also drawn to All Aboard and those darling snack bags!

  62. I love the Hamptons pattern with the Independence Trail by Minick & Simpson.

  63. Through the Looking Glass just really speaks to me. I would like to try it in Scrumptious.

  64. I really like the vintage days. My grand daughters name is Emae. I would love to make her an Its so Emma quilt.

  65. Congratulations on your beautiful patterns! I'm having a hard time of only picking one. I'm between Gallery of Stars made with Wallflowers and Primrose and Poppies made with Paint Box. I think both would look wonderful!

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.


  66. I love Hamptons and would love to see it made with Simply Style (coming soon) fabric. And I know my son would really love the train too! πŸ™‚

  67. I would choose Gallery of Stars and pair it with Midwinter Reds.
    Thanks for he chance and I'm glad you all had so much fun. Everything looked great!

  68. I like the Primrose and Poppies pattern and I would make it with with the Windsor Lane by Bunny Hill Designs Fabric using all the different colorways it comes in.

  69. I just love the Hamptons pattern. I think I would make it with Esprit de Noel by French General. Thank you for the chance!

  70. Through the Looking Glass in Honeysweet, anything by Fig Tree is good for me…

  71. Love them all but I think Though the Looking Glass with Paint Box. It will look great in my grand daughter's room. Thank you again for all the fabulous pictures.

  72. Williams Crossing , I am a huge nine patch fan! and how I would love to make it with that fabric line but I would use shirtings for the background . Can't wait for this new fabric line to come out, Love Collection for a cause , love those fabric lines
    thanks for the chance to win and THANK YOU for all the posts and pictures of market it was so fun to see

  73. I love all but would make the through the looking Glass with the Curious nature fabrics. They are still waiting on my shelf, lol!

  74. Loving all these new patterns. I'm such a huge star fan, so my fav is Vintage Days. I can see this in Happy Go Lucky, which I'm dying to get my hands on. Beautiful patterns and gorgeous quilts.

  75. Love them all, and have quite a few It's Sew Emma patterns. But my new favorite is Gallery of Stars in Windham fabric Greatest Hits, just as shown on the cover of the pattern. I have ordered Williams Crossing and am not quite sure which fabric I will use.

  76. I like Williams Crossing the best but it really is real hard to pick just one. The fabric collection would be Collection for a Cause – Love.

  77. Love all the patterns… but I think it is the fabric that makes them so appealing. My favorite is Hampton's!

  78. I had very strong nostalgic reaction to William's Crossing using Love – Collection for a Cause. This is a quilt I want to snuggle under – such warmth!

  79. This is a hard decision……..Hamptons is the pattern, and I would have to make two. One of French General Favorites and the other of Indigo by Minick and Simpson. ( I think…..!)

  80. I absolutely loved the Through the Looking Glass pattern. I loved the Paint Box line in this quilt, but the pattern is so simple that I think a lot of fabric lines would wokr with the pattern

  81. I absolutely LOVE Vintage Days! The fabric I'd pair it up with is Marmalade and I'd love to do one in Scrumptious too (I'm so happy you have kits coming)! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I adore all the new patterns!

  82. Oh I love Vintages Days! I would make it with Vintage Baby by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake. I think it would be such a sweet baby quilt! Thanks for the chance to win and thanks for sharing your Market trip!

  83. I love the Hamptons made with the Midwinter Reds, but it would also be great in Minick and Simpson's blue line, too.

  84. Love Gallery of Stars! Would make it in Madhuri, Bake Sale or Old Glory Gatherings. They would be totally different quilts but the pattern would look great in any of them.

  85. I love Vintage Days and I would pair it with Mulberry Lane. Thank you for a fabulous show today and a very generous giveaway!

  86. I love Primrose and Poppies! I think it is perfect with the Wallflowers fabric. I don't think there is a better choice!

  87. I love stars so I think Vintage Days is my first favorite….bu I love the look of Primrose & Poppies too.

  92. I like the Vintage Days pattern using Blushing. And I absolutely love those pillowcases with the cupcakes!

  93. First I would want to make Hamptons in the fabric shown on the pattern — it's perfect!!!

    Next would love to make all aboard and vintage days for gifts, directly followed by the primrose and poppies in blue, yellow and white for our kitchen.

    I can see using everyone of the patterns for gifts or for our home. Great selection!!


  94. my favorite is All Aboard, with any boy line from Riley Blake….probably Gingham.
    I also like Modern Butterfly and Galaxy of Stars.

  96. Love thme all…especially Hamptons and All Aboard….so hard to choose…ok my great grandsons would love ALL ABOARD so thats my pick !

  97. I'm having a hard time deciding between Through the Looking Glass and Hamptons. I think I have enough fabric in my stash to make both πŸ™‚

  98. I didn't think of the pair, but I love it! All Aboard using Flats. πŸ™‚ Super cute. I'm not a kid anymore and I'd love to have this on my bed. haha.

  99. I love the Snack Time Bag made with Urban Zoologie! I would make it for my great nephew for his day care lunch. Thanks for all the great pictures!

  100. Hard to pick just one, but I think Hamptons is my favorite new pattern. Love it made up in the Mid Winter Reds.

  101. Vintage Days made with Scrumptious for a little girl and All Aboard made with Flats for a little boy. I like the crayon colors of both.

  102. Vintage Days made with Scrumptious for a little girl and All Aboard made with Flats for a little boy. I like the crayon colors of both.

  103. I have been looking at the Hamptons pattern. I just LOVE it! I think that I would do it in the Jasmine line because I am such a purple girl! πŸ™‚

  104. I have to make All Aboard for my little Grandson . . . he's obsessed with trains at the moment. I love the colors in Bake Shop so I may have to try that in a train :-).

  105. I love all the quilts, hard to pick one! Hamptons made with the Midwinter Reds by Minick and Simpson is my favorite though, very beautiful, I would love to make it!

  106. My favorite pattern is Hamptons. Although I think it is stunning done with the Midwinter Reds collection, I would love to see it with Vin du Jour. Thank you!

  107. I love Through the Looking Glass using Anne Sutton's Celebration fabric. I would use her Girl's Celebration fabric to make the quilt for my oldest granddaughter…5-year old Addy.

  108. I love half-square triangles, so I love Primrose and Poppies. I'd try it in Bonnie and Camille's Scrumptious collection.

  109. I LOVE All Aboard! My husband is big into trains right now (reliving his childhood). Flats is perfect for this pattern.

  110. WOW I love them all but if I have to choose, I would choose "Through The Looking Glass" with Celebration. I'm new to quilting and this pattern looks like it would be easy for a beginner. Thanks for sharing.

  111. Oh my! They are all gorgeous! I do adore Through the Looking Glass and Vintage Days the most! All beautiful eye candy!

  112. Through the Looking Glass made with Moonflower! Can't wait to give it a try.

  113. I love Hamptons and would make it out of something Christmas-y, like Peppermint Lane or Holiday Classics Metallics.

    Love them all, too!
    Sandy A

  114. This should be a fairly easy comment, despite the fact that In love Sew Emma patterns (and their price), I have already had one idea in mind. My granddaughter and I have been discussing lunch bags and which fabric she prefers. She has chosen the Kaufman Urban Zoologic Bermuda Little Birds, Spring Ladybugs, and Bright Butterflies. As a lining we both decided on Remix Scatter Dots. I think these make a great combination and I am ready to get started.

  115. Would love to make Hamptons with Vin du Jour! It would look great! Love all the pictures from market!
