    Thanks for the chance! I always look forward to seeing you guys on the tour!

  56. I like the Cruiser Blvd, what a great use of the fabric. Gives me ideas for other prints that I say "what to do with, but love." Like you site as there are many good blocks and quilts for inspiration.

  57. It's between 30's Playtime and Betty Dear. Both have such great, clear colors and lots of texture. I could use these in unusual ways.

  58. I have to say the Downtown Abbey collection looks fabulous. thank you for the chance to win a copy of this great magazine.


  59. Congratulations on having three blocks published! Kimberly's block is a really fun block and would be great in a toddler's quilt, especially if done in the Cruiser Blvd fabric. Debbie Taylor's block looks really great in Christmas colors. I agree, Jocelyn's block would make such a fun spring time quilt! I really like the Tour des Fleurs Collection and would love to use fabric from the American Beauty Yardage for some QOV quilts. Thanks for the chance to win!

  60. Beautiful blocks! Congratulations on being in Quiltmaker's 100! Can't wait to get some of Kate Spain's Daydreams.

  61. Wow! I love all the fabrics that would be great for baby boy quilts! For myself – Aunt Grace Minatures, Lavendar Cologne & Cotton, Downton Abby, and Lily are my top picks. Cowboy Up Pink would be great for my 6 yr old granddaughter and beginning quilter!

  62. I think my favorite "coming" fabric is the Downton Abbey collection. I saw a bag a lady had made in the fabric that she got a MARKET in Houston and it was lovely!! I like the Dowager Countess Downton Abbey Fat Quarter Bundle by Andover Fabrics

  63. There are so many exciting collections!! Some of my favorites are April Showers, Aunt Grace Miniatures, Lavender Cologne, and I really likes all of the Holiday banner collections!

  64. Downton and April Showers are just two of the Coming Soon that I am dreaming about! Love Jocelyns block too.

  65. Your blocks are just so awesome, and I love the one with the cars on it because my daughter loves cars and planes, and your other blocks are great and bold too. Love the colors!!!

  66. for myself, I'm drawn to anything Kate Spain (Daydreams), and Stonehenge. anything Riley Blake is amazingly cute!
    for my sons, Angry Birds and Team Thomas are winners.

  67. I can't wait for Botanics to be out! Thank you for the chance to win. di_caughill at hotmail dot com

  68. Aspen Frost, without a doubt! Anything that says, 'cooler weather!' And that was my favorite block as well! Love the website, too! I look forward to coming back often.

  69. Love this site and all the tips and encouragement it gives us. Love April Showers by Bonnie and Camille. thanks for the opportunity!

  70. The Hoffman batiks – all of them- and the Very Hungry Caterpillar, also the wool and needle flannels

  71. I want some of the Downton Abbey Collection! I'll be backfor it when it is available! Now I know where to get it. Thanks for all the chances to WIN this Issue!

  72. Antique Flower is my favorite. I really love all things old looking. Thanks for the chance at the book.

  73. Oh, mercy! I love April Showers by Bonnie and Camille, and Kate Spain's Daydreams…all the Moda designers and lines…I'm a fabriholic.

  74. There are so many nice collections coming soon! The ones I will be looking for are Color Me Happy, Chantilly & Downton Abbey!! Can't wait til they hit the stores.

  75. There are so many that I like, it's hard to select one–but if I have to, I'd have to say I'm most looking forward to Monster Mash. (I am a sucker for monsters.)

  76. My goodness, I can only pick one? Just about all of them; I like more thank I can remember their names!!!! I love the 30's fabric and the Kansas Troubles, and the Yellows, and the Stonehenge. All colors have their place in my quilting. My problem is analysis paralysis. I have commitment issues.

  77. Love the blocks!! Being a giraffe lover, I'd have to choose Giraffe Crossing as my favorite "coming soon" collection. 🙂 Thanks for the chance ~ fingers crossed!

  78. Since I'm a fan of red, white, and blue, I'd pick the American Beauty collection. It would be such fun to work with!

  79. What a task to choose new collections for my wish list! I can not stop at just three or four choices. I guess that is why my stash grows so fast. Narrowed down I wish for Botanics, Emily's Eyelet Artisan Batiks and Mirabelle. Julie Herman's Disco quilt using Botanics has my number as well. I already have the ruler so just fabric, pattern and the time and I am good to go.
    The Fat Quarter Shop ladies contributed three awesome blocks for Vol. 8

  80. Santa needs to put some Aspen Frost in my stocking!! I love the blocks. You took us from commuting to retreating to thinking about all the designs Jocelyn's block will make!!

  81. So many good ones to choose from. I think I'd focus first on Grant Park. Love those Minnick and Simpson Red, White and Blues. Thanks for a peek at your fun blocks, and the chance to win.

  82. I couldn't find the Anna Maria Horner True Colors or the Joel Dewberry True Colors (those are DEFINITELY on my list), along with Tula Pink's Fox Field!

  83. Cute block and cute fabric in Rush Hour. Aspen Retreat is great – I love log cabins and stars! And, finally, Jocelyn Ueng's block is so fresh and bright that it inspires me to try a quilt with the pattern.

  84. Two of my favorites from the new lines: Honey Bee Mine and Hubba Hubba. Wonderful complimentary colors in both lines! And I love Aspen Frost. Beautiful combinations of patterns and colors.

  85. All of them…no seriously all of them. I'm trying to rebuild my collection after losing so many from several different moves. Sad but on the up side I get to shop for fabric again…all good =)

  86. I love the aged muslins. I love solids. I think they just add a great pop to quilts. I've been having an issue with double vision and prints add confusion to my already conflicted brain so solids help to calm all that confusion. Thanks for the great giveaway (I had fumble fingers and started to say five-away).

  87. It's a tough choice, but I'd have to pick either Lotta Jansdotter's Mormor or Holly Hill's Tour des Fleurs. One modern–one traditional–both beautiful.

  88. I like traditional, so Tour des Fleur (Mary Jane Carey) and Classic Minis would be included on my list. It's interesting that there will be a Downton Abbey line!

  89. Lovely blocks! Congratulations to everyone! Looking forward to the new Downton Abby fabric. Thank you for a great giveaway!

  92. I am waiting for April Showers by Bonnie and Camille … Drip drip drop hurry March 2014! Thank you.

  93. hard to decide… – April Showers, but also Aunt Grace Miniatures and Classic Mini's and Color me Happy …

  94. My favorites are Monster Truck Madness by Deborah Edwards for Northcott and Retromobilia by Studio K for Clothworks. I have two grandsons that are 23 days apart in age and I would be able to make them each a different quilt, but similar!
