    Thank you for a chance to win. :-)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am not big on buying patterns but I just bought one after about 15 years, it is 3 Infinity Scarves by Making Rebecca Lynne. I just made one and blogged about it here: http://www.intheboondocks.blogspot.com/2012/10/infinity-scarves.html

    So funny to be asked that question today must be fate.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Pretty bundle! I have quite a few Thumble Blossom patterns (by Camille) and I would say Cluck Cluck Sew's are a close second. Although I love the look of Fig Tree patterns (and I have a few) I find the instructions/fabric requirements confusing. Camille and Allison are straight forward. :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I like Camille Roskelley's patterns. I appreciate their clarity and especially like that she provides cutting diagrams to show how to get the right pieces out of certain cuts of fabric, and warns whether there will be very little room for error.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love Camille Roskelly...Swoon and Spools are my favorites of hers. I love Crazy Mom. Seriously, I'd follow that woman anywhere quilty. And I also have a couple of V and Co. that I love too. I don't buy many patterns but these ladies are my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love Patricia Cox patterns for applique and Verna Mosquera. Fig Tree comes up with some great designs as well! And I love Crabapple Hill...the list goes on and on.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs is one of my favorite pattern designers.
    congrats to the winner.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I don't have a favorite designer, I like too many of them to be able to pick a favorite! What I look for in a pattern is ease of assembly, clear and concise instructions, and if the sample is shown in delicious fabrics, so much the better. :) Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  124. How have I not seen that line before? I must be avoiding your coming soon page to save money :o

    My favorite designers - odd how they've changed so much in the last year - my recent bundle purchases instead of single print purchases says it all - Pat Bravo and Dena Designs for their bold bright designs, totally different from each other, but I love the bright cheery AND the bright funky...guess that means its obvious Tula Pink is also in my top three...

    ReplyDelete
  125. I like It's Sew Emma because they are traditional quilts. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I enjoy patterns by Atkinson Designs, Carrie's Miss Rosie designs, and Jaybird designs! I really purchase patterns by a variety of designers....but I own more of these ladies' patterns than any other designers!
    The fabric for your giveaway is so cheerful and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  127. My fave bag/clutch type patterns are from Michelle's Patterns, formerly Keyka Lou. She's got a variety of styles, her PDF's are clear with lots of pictures, her instructions are concise and I learn a lot from her. To top it off she provides hints, tips, and ideas of other ways to do things with the pattern in her blog. Fave quilt patterns are American Jane. They're neat designs to play with fabric and patterns. I'd love to get Kim McLeans patterns but they're out of my financial zone.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Riley Blake, for the florals in Black and white

    ReplyDelete
  129. I don't have a favorite designer, I am a too much green quilter, I really am at my first steps.
    But I can say I like flowers so much and bright colors

    ReplyDelete
  130. I have really only checked out Robert Kaufman patterns, mainly because I love his fabric selections, and I like downloadable patterns! Still need to branch out more.....but pretty new to quilting! :)

    ReplyDelete
  131. So many fabulous fabric designers, how do you pick just one? Jennifer Paganelli, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey...and the list goes on.

  132. Are we talking about fabric designers or sewing pattern designers?

    For fabric I like Tula Pink, I think her designs are very fun and creative.

    For the patterns I have actually only used a couple. One was Amy Butler, and the other was by Emmaline Handbags. Both were great for a beginner like myself and very pic heavy which I love. :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm not using a lot of patterns these days, although I have the Oliver +S toddler backpack cut out and waiting...and several of the patterns in that book are on my to-do list.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I like Amy Butler patterns for bags, but I also like to sew for my small children so I love Oliver + S and Figgy patterns as well. This line is so pretty, love the bright colors!

  142. So far the only patterns I've used are by Camille Roskelly. Though I long to make one, I haven't yet tried her Swoon pattern.

    I also love Denyse Schmidt patterns but have yet to try one. I have her recent book so it won't be long. And I've admired all the Single Girl quilts out there.

    I also have a new book by Elizabeth Hartman and am keen to try some of her eager, understated looking quilt designs.

    And oh ... Anna Maria Horner. I want to make some of her quilt designs, too.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  156. One of my favorite designers is Bunny Hill. Just precious designs!! Be especially blessed, Kathy

  162. I'm new to the online sewing community and shops so I'm just learning of all the great resources and patterns. The few that I have used are from my LQS, Smile Spinners....fast and fun projects!

  164. My favorite designers are Thimbleblossoms and Cluck Cluck Sew. Both of these designers have patterns where they are versatile and show off great fabric!

  165. I love Jamie Elfert's patterns - she blogs at L'Fair Quilts. her quilts always have such cute little pinwheels in them, and are very well designed. Then I always love quilt designs by Elizabeth Hartmann and AmandaJean Nyfert - practical, easy, modern, and so great for scraps, especially Amanda Jean's!

  167. I don't use quilt patterns (I like to make up my own), but it I had to choose I'd say that I like the look of Cluck, Cluck, Sew's patterns.

  168. Wow, hard question! Here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order:

    Thimble Blossom: They are a neat take on classic patterns done in a more up to date way

    Jaybird Quilts: They are just so much fun! I am a sucker for new tools too, and her patterns usually have one to go with them

    Fig Tree quilts: They are so soft and I love that she uses both applique and piecing in some of her patterns.

    Thanks!

  170. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm like some of the others on here, I don't really have a favorite designer...I make things up as I go along and create my own stuff.

  171. My favorite pattern designer is Kay Whitt of Sew Serendipity! Her patterns and books are written so the beginner can understand the instructions! She is amazing!

  173. My favourite pattern designer is Elizabeth Hartman - I haven't actually made a quilt pattern by anyone else yet, though I have purchased Camille Roskelley's Swoon pattern & want to get started on it soon. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  174. I don't really do much quilting, but for other patterns I love everything from Oliver + s and Leisl (the straight stitch society). I also like the Cottage Mama patterns (kids clothes), Clever Charlotte.

  175. This is such a pretty fabric line. Great giveaway. As far as pattern designers, my favorite is still Eleanor Burns. Her patterns are easy to follow.

    I really do love Julie's(Jaybird Quilts)patterns also for the very same reason.

  176. me gusta más el paquete de los naranjas, es uno de mis colores preferidos y seguro que sale un edredón muy alegre y colorido.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I hadn't heard about that line either. I love it. My favorite pattern desinger is Amanda Murphy...I absolutely adore her fabrics and her patterns aren't overly complicated but produce wonderful quilts that really showcase the fabrics.

  192. Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts
    is one of many - I have one of her patterns sitting next to my PC right now.
    Others: Pat Wys, Monica Dillard, Minick and Simpson, Kaffe, etc.

  193. My favourite designer is MoMo - "Wonderland" was the first designer fabric that I really coveted when I started quilting (and it's her first collection too!) and she hasn't disappointed me in her later collections either. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Thomas Knauer is actually my favorite because I love the way he pairs intellectual discourse with his design work (do you read his blog?). After that, I think Anna Maria Horner is unparalleled in how she layers color and pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  195. Hmmm... this is a hard one! I usually don't buy patterns. I use the free ones from The Moda Bake Shop and others. But I did buy Camille's "Swoom" pattern and it was so much fun to make! I really like her other ones, too. I also like Jaybird patterns. They are fun and so different!.. These are beautiful fabrics! Thanks you for the give away!!
