  1. Wow – such a hard choice. I am trying to build up my solids stash, so I will choose the New Dark Kona Cotton Solids Bounty of Basics Fat Quarter Box.
    SKU# BOB-130-100

    I am starting a brand new quilt today for a very special nurse who helped my sister in a losing battle against brain cancer. We want her to know how healing her care was throughout the struggle – and what better way to say that than with a quilt!

  2. Yikes, so many choices! Can't decide between Posy or Textures by Angela Waters….. Guess I'll pick the Posy group, but I'd love either!

  3. Snowman Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings

  4. Right now my favorite is Comma Fat Quarter Bundle by Zen Chic. I have the quilt planned for this fabric; now I just need the fabric!

    Today I am going to resume working on piecing a quilt that I've had to set aside for many days.

  5. I will choose Type Fat Quarter Bundle by Julia Rothman for Windham Fabrics because I want to make a lap quilt for my hubby with this line. I have a baby quilt in progress to work on today.

  6. Such a tough decision! To make it somewhat easier I would go with the Moda Bella Solids COLOR CARD! That will make future purchases so much easier. πŸ™‚

  7. This is an extraordinary giveaway…WOW. I would pick French General Favorites FQB with Judie's 25 Anniversary FQB a very close second! Thanks you guys!

  8. I am dying to own some of this fabric.
    Field Notes Fat Quarter Bundle
    Blackbird Designs for Moda Fabrics
    thanks for the giveaway. Happy Quilting to you.

  9. it is hard to choose, because there are so many tempting things, but for now I would choose Paint Box COTTON Fat Quarter Bundle .


    Love & Liberty by Robyn Pandolph

    I just love how sweet and romantic this line of fabric is! It has been a long 3 1/2 years since I have had the desire to get back in my sewing room. Ever since my mama passed away, it has been difficult to even walk in my sewing room. She shared her love of sewing with me since I was a little girl! Seeing this fabric has given me the motivation to design a quilt that I know would make her proud:)

  11. My favorite item would be the We Love Color Kona Cotton solids bounty of basics fat quarters. I belong to your moda fat quarter club and some of my patterns are requiring just a few more colors or fat quarters and this would be so handy to pull some solids to go with.
    Thank you and Happy National Quilting Day!

  12. Oh my gosh, what a great giveaway!!! I would love to have the Judie Rothermel Fat Quarter Assortment Box

    **But it is a such a pricey item I don't want to be greedy, but I can dream, LOL…so I would be exquisitely happy with a FQB of French General's "Esprit De Noel" I've never owned any French General and they are so gorgeous…

    I hope I did that right, thanks again for such an exciting giveaway. You guys rock. Big Hugs and Good Luck to Everyone

  13. Love the new Rose Cottage fat quarters. These colours are so similar and a great match to the Royal Doulton colours used in their Pretty Ladies line of figurines. What a classy fabric!

  14. Any Kona Cotton Solids Fat Quarter Bundle!!!!

    I'm spending today working on lots of projects, and making the whole weekend a sewing day!

  15. I love the Tenderness Pam Kitty Love Fat Quarter Bundle. Periwinkle is my favorite blue, and these are cute with intense color. Pick me, pick me!

  16. Earth 2012 Kaffe Fassett Collective Fat Quarter Bundle
    Westminster Fibers # FB1FQGP-EARTH

    I would love this Kaffe Fassett collection – working in my LQS today helping to cut fabric packs

  17. It is so very difficult to pick just one favorite, but today I'm going with Indigo Crossing fat quarter bundle. Love those blues.

  18. I first thought about PB&J but I love the colours of Paris Flea Market (Fat Quarter Bundle) by
    3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics

  19. I have been coveting the Spinning Stars quilt kit by Minick and Simpson. I LOVE their line of Indigo Crossings fabrics. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

  20. Ooh so hard to pick favorites, I really love Margot Languedoc's designer select fat quarter bundle
    blushing collection. It's lovely!

  21. Contrary to what I had planned, I've spent Quilting Day so far hemming, patching and in other words repairing my sister's vintage dresses while she visits. Despite that, I would love to quilt something for her (or myself!) with a PB&J fat quarter bundle. Like my sister's style, it's the perfect mix of retro and modern!

  22. I would love a bundle of Wool & Needle Flannels II. A friend sent me some and I want to make a quilt with them and not enough to make a large quilt.


  23. I have become a fan of Judie Rothermel and would love to have her Strawberries, Blueberries and Chocolate FQB by Marcus Fabrics


  24. I LOVE everything in your shop, as always, but my favorite right now is anything from the Comma Fat Quarter Bundle
    Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics, One day my husband and I hope ot have a baby, and I totally digging the gray and citron! My favorite fabric out the entire thing is, Mustard Swinging,

    I get my sewing machine out of storage in 15 days… and I can't wait!! Right now I am learning how to make a Hawaiian Quilted Pillow (which is all hand stitching!!!)

  25. I love Julie Comstock's "Just the Ticket" quilt kit featured in Quilts & More spring 2013. Would love to have a chance to win that kit. Don't know how to attach the link. πŸ™

  26. I just love the Quilting Heart Aurifil Thread Box by Pat Bravo. Aurifil is the thread I covet as I read all the great reviews out there in blogland but I just can't stretch the budget to fit in. This would be an amazing prize.

    Thanks so much for this great chance to win something i truly have been dreaming of πŸ™‚

  27. What a fun way to celebrate Worldwide Quilting Day! I wandered through your store for a long time because everything is so beautiful. The thing I'm most craving now is the Eye Candy Aurifil thread box. Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. I love the colors and designs – especially the flowers – in the "Me and My Sister Designs' Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle
    Ticklish Collection." While the clouds,snow showers and rain certainly don't make one think of Spring, these fabrics SCREAM it to me.

  29. This is actually my favourite:

    Enchant Yardage, Cinderberry Stitches for Riley Blake Designs (

    but it isn't available yet so I will say that a close second is:

    Better Gnomes and Gardens Pink Quilt Panel – SKU# 8HDB2

    Gorgeous fabrics to look through as usual, thanks for the chance to play along.

  30. I am really liking the Joys of Christmas Quilt Kit
    Featuring 12 Days of Christmas by Anni Downs. But, is there any thing that can top Anni? Thanks for this fun giveaway.

  31. I'd love the Frixion Ball Erasable 6-Piece Gel Pen Set in your notions department. I don't know how to add the link. Thank you!

  32. I love the Kepier Durham Anew fat quarter bundle by Brenda Riddle for Lecien fabrics. Although I think this bundle of mostly blues needs some of the pink fabrics from the St Giles Durham Anew fat quater bundle. Such gorgeous pastel rose colors. Yesterday I was working on a t-shirt/memory quilt for customer.

  33. No need to look around the website. I already know what I like and have been thinking about…"PB & J by Basic Grey with their Creamy White Bread cut on bias for binding! Not sure what the pattern will be but it will be gorgeous!!

  34. I love the soft colors of Lucien's Kepier Durham. The fabrics would be lovely in a baby quilt or for a soft pastel look in any pattern. I have been loving working with the "modern" look because of it's simplicity to sew, quilt and fantastic finished look. Thanks for the chance to win. Happy sewing.

  35. I really enjoy working with batiks and their soft texture. I would choose Mocha Kiss Tonga Treats . Their colors are just right for spring! Love to make a Wedding Ring or Irish chain from it. Would love the chance to win. Have a wonderful (inter)+ national quilt day.

  36. It would be hard to choose just one item that I would love to own, biut since I like to work with 1880's repro's and I love blues and browns, I would choose the Western Star quilt kit featuring Julie Hendrickson's History Repeated line of fabrics!
    Today I am working on the latest Grandmother's Choice block–it's challenging!

  37. One of my favorite designers is Lisa from Primitive Gatherings, and I would love her fat quarter bundle of:
    Old Glory Gatherings Fat Quarter Bundle
    Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics
    Thanks for the chance!

  38. My favourite item right now from your website is the Family Tree Quilt Kit by Laundry Basket quilts. So pretty yet so unavailable (because of the price). Love it.
    Terrific giveaway, good luck to everyone.
    I'm going to celebrate quilting a little bit. Thanks for the chance to win!

  39. As a new quilter there are several things I would love to have from your shop. The one item that I would love the most is a Noteworthy fat quarter bundle. bu

    Westminster Fibers # FB1FQGP-EARTH

    It was fun to look around and it was hard to choose. I also liked the newer collection done by Eric Carle of 10 Rubber Ducks. Very fun children's book.
    I do really like your website and have ordered from it periodically. You always have the fabrics packaged beautifully and provide lots of interesting choices for your clientele. Thanks for hosting this lovely giveaway on National Quilt day- I am getting some quilting started today- a project that I started about a month ago.
    Warmest regards from Alberta,

  41. I would love to have either the A-Zap Quilt kit ( )(which I have loved since I got your book- preordered, of course!) or the Deck-ade the Halls Kit to sew along with you!( ) I spent the day sewing with my BFF and visiting two LQS in our area! finishing baby quilts and on to more projects with new fabric!

  45. My favorite is Ticklish Jelly Roll
    by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics. Wishing everyone Happy Quilting Day!

  46. I have been looking for a light grey for a quilt I'm making. I would love to use Bungle Jungle Grey Oodles yardage.

  47. Just found out my daughter is having a baby! First grandchild so just dying to make tons of baby items. Love the modern rose fabric and would make a baby quilt from that line.

  48. This looks like a fun giveaway! Ive never tried the mini charm packs, so this would be the group I would choose. Love all the fabric choices!
