  1. That's hard to have to pick one, when all 3 are so pretty, but I guess my 1st choice would be First Bloom Modern Meadow

    Sweep'n the clouds away…
    On my way to where the fabric is sweet.

    Can you tell me how to get,
    How to get to Fat Quarter Street…

  3. Oh they are all so gorgeous! I don't know HOW I could pick just ONE. sigh.

    Okay… under pressure, I guess I'd have to go with Cool Stream… no Sunny Day… hmmm… Cool Stream.

    So difficult.

  4. I like them all EXCEPT the last one…Sunny Day. I think it's the brownesk green that turns me off….too much baby food in my house at the moment and coordinating diapers =) but I am in LOVE with those first two!!

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhemgee. I was JUST looking at the Cool Stream colorway today and thinking, "where can I enter a giveaway to win some of this?"

  6. I love them all….but I would have to say cool stream is my favorite…it would make a fabulous quilt for my living room! = )

  7. How sweet to do a giveaway of such a yummy line! It's a hard choice between those three…I think I'd have to go with First Bloom – I'm so into that dark/hot pink right now! 🙂

  14. Cool Stream is so my colorway. I SHOULD ask for one of the others because I have fewer fabs in those colors, but I can't help it! Cool Stream it is!

  15. Oh wow!~ very tough choice! Cool Stream. No wait!~ First Bloom! Oh, no, I'll stick with my first choice~ Cool Stream~ sounds like a lazy summer day. 🙂 Thanks for the chance!!

  16. Just this morning I was trying to decide…do i like Fresh bloom or Cool stream better. Now I have to decide! Um….Fresh Bloom!

  17. That first bloom is all my good colors, BUT!, I just about fell over in love with Cool Stream. Sorry, pink, it's nothing personal…

  18. Cool stream, although the Sunny Day also has some appeal. Of course, I am sure I could find someone who would love something made out of any of them!

  19. Oh I just love these. What fabulous colors and patterns. I think I will pick first bloom this time, but cool stream….it is right in the running. Thanks for this fun giveaway!!

  20. Definitely First Bloom for me! I'm so ready for spring that every where I go I'm jumping towards those colors.

  21. My favorite is First Bloom. It would make a perfect quilt for my daughter to celebrate a successful potty training "boot camp" at home!

  22. I love them all but if I have to choose I'll go with Cool Stream.
    Thanks for giving us a chance to win a whole fat quarter bundle.

  23. It's too hard to choose just one! Cool Stream was the one I liked the best, but the others are terribly pretty!

  24. Cool stream gets my vote. I guess I'm more into the browns and aqua, but they are all gorgeous!

  25. Oh what a wonderful give a way the fabrics are just do you pick just one1 Well I will have to go with Sunny Day for my first choice but they are all lovely. Please add me to your awesome giveaway and thank you so much.

  26. Shoot – do we have to choose one and not win ALL three of the lines?

    Well, if I have to it will be Cool Stream. I want more blue here (that does not have to do with what I am feeling or the weather).

  27. Just bought some in the cool colorway to make a quilt for my dad…but I'd love to have some for myself in my favorite, first bloom!

  28. Not so easy to pick one! Let s go for …First Bloom!

    Thank you for this giveaway!

  29. That is a tough call, but I would have to say "Sunny Day". I was considering buying a FQ bundle of the entire line, but I just can't swing it right now, so I would LOVE to have chance to own some of this!

  30. So hard to pick, but I'm going to go with "Sunny Day." I like to somewhat "retro" look of the orange, avocado and brown.

  31. Cool Stream Modern Meadow.

    I love all that you do! You are my first quilting website/blog I subscribed to and love ordering from you!

  32. Cool Stream and Modern Meadow both because of that wonderful robin's egg/turquoise/aqua/water shade of blue – my fav color as of this moment!

  33. Cool Stream color combination is EXACTLY what I've been dreaming of for a quilt for my daughter and new son-in-law. It would go perfectly in their home. I hope you pick me!

  34. I love them all, but I think my favourite is Cool stream! Please pick me, pick me!!! 🙂 Silvia

  35. I'm so torn between Cool Stream (for my bedroom) or Sunny Day (for my living room) they both need quilts!
    OOOOHHHHHH! I so need to get me some!

  36. I love Cool Stream.. these colors are very comforting to me.. Thank you for the chance to win and create something fabulous with this colorway.

  37. tough decision!! i'm really loving both the cool stream and first bloom, but i think first bloom wins out by a smidge. i love the tree print on the green background!! thanks for another great giveaway!

  38. Cool Stream was my favorite. Then as I saw the next one, it became my favorite and then the last one. Decidedly, I love them all!

  39. Love the giveaways. I just ordered the First Bloom from you So I would to also get my hands on the cool dream line. My fingers are crossed.

  40. Wow – you make this HARD !! LOL
    I love them all. But I'll pick Sunny Day as my favorite because that's we're hoping for – sunny days to return.

  41. I just love the Cool Stream, but they are all beautiful. Wonderful and springy!

  42. I love love love First Bloom, but the other two colorways are beautiful too, and mixed together would be gorgeous.
    Thanks for the chance!
    Love it!

  43. First Bloom is definitely my favorite colorway. I have some pink, brown, and green blocks from a block swap that would work beautifully with these fabrics. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  44. I'd pick "First Bloom". My girls and I love pink and would like to create something fun from this colorway.

  45. I love them all and picking a favorite is hard! But I think that the cool, fresh palette of Sunny Day is just incredible!

  46. Sunny Day Modern Meadow. I see it as an awesome purse! And headbands for my daughter. Love the fresh happy colors.

  47. They are all beautiful, but the oranges in Sunny Day keep catching my eye! Thanks for the opportunity to win some. I bet it's stunning to touch and see in real life!

  48. I was akready looking at this new line this week in your webshop…. I think I would go for the sunny day modern meadow.
    Sure need some sun after this loooooooong winter here in Holland with more snow than I can remember for a long time!

  49. First Bloom is my favorite — I just love pink, but I'd love to win any of them. Anything that makes you feel like spring these days is perfect!!

  50. Ohhh.. Spring is on its way…with wonderful fabrics…:o) First Bloom is my absolute favorite…Love the pinks..:o)

  51. At first I thought I liked Cool Stream, but scrolling down DEFINITELY Sunny Day. The colours are perfect together.

  52. My favorite is first bloom… the colors remind me of my own garden where the pinks and burgundy azaleas come into bloom first…

  53. Love them all but I'll get out of my comfort zone and put my hand in for Cool Stream (but I also really, really, really like First Bloom, lol !). Thanks for the chance !

  54. mmmm…. tomorrow is the first "spring"day in The Netherlands: tempature is rising, sun is breaking through the clouds, snow has definitely disappeared (we've had the snowiest winter in years, maybe decades)… I'm in the mood for "first bloom"

  55. Ah, choices. Such a pretty range. Cool stream appeals most, being a blues/greens gal, but then, First Bloom is so lovely and warming.
    Hmmm….winter coming….I'll go First Bloom!

  56. Sunny day, Sunny day, Sunny day. As one who looks better in autumn coloring, I love it when designers bring the orange and goldenrod colors into their fabric lines!

  57. Gotta be cool stream! It perfectly matches a scrappy quilt I have been working on for almost a year now. *crossing my fingers*

  58. OOOHH, I absolutely love all of these prints. As soon as I saw them in the "what's new" section, I had to show everyone. I can't wait to get it- I would love to make a nice big quilt for my own bed instead of all the ones that are in progress for my daughter!! If I have to decide, I choose Cool Stream.

  59. If I had to choose one it would be First Bloom although I'd be happy with any of them for they're all quite lovely. Thank you for doing the give away.

  60. Choose? You want me to choose? Is that possible? How can one choose? Its like picking a favourite child!!

    But if you insist – then it would have to be Full Bloom – I'm a sucker for girly colours!

  61. Great giveaway! Although all of the bundles are wonderful, my choice would be First Bloom!

  62. Cool Stream! They're all beautiful, but I love the palette Joel used in Cool Stream best. ; ) Thanks for this opportunity, and Happy St. Patty's Day to you!!!

  63. Wow! What beautiful designs! I can't decide between sunny day and first bloom, wait, I'll flip a coin……First Bloom it is! Thank You for hosting sucha fun giveaway!

  64. First Bloom is my favorite, but honestly, they are all beautiful! I want to WIN!

  65. I've been waffling between Sunny Day and Cool Stream, but Cool Stream wins out in the end. I can picture myself just dangling my feet in cool water on a hot summer day.

  66. First Bloom seems to appeal the most to me but the Cool Stream is also very very nice 🙂

    Thanks for this give-away!

  67. Cool Stream is definitely my favorite. I can see quilts, cloths, purses, home decor and soooo much more with that color palette.

  68. They are all delicious! But it's gotta be Sunny Day … orange and green and turquoise … oh my!

  69. I love the Sunny Day Modern Meadow. The orange just kicks off the teal and kiwi kinda colors in a way that has to brighten a room. Thinking it could go pretty well in my room maybe ya think?
