    Your comment about designers not being able to follow directions is spot on for quilters too, at least quilters like me, HA!

  8. Marcia Avatar

    Being creative with the “rules” made me laugh…that is SO how we roll! Your new line is stunning, especially those reds. AND shirtings too, wow, I am swooning. So many possibilities, so little time…loving this blog hop.

    I love 1 yard cuts and layer cakes 🙂 The floral gathering shirting fabrics are on my must have list 🙂

  12. Julie - Me & My Stitches Avatar

    Well, shoot…I liked the first post, but being able to see more is even better! I usually buy half yard cuts, unless it’s something that I really love, then it’s a yard. Unless I think it would be a good border, then 3 yards. Unless I think I will never find that exact, perfect color again…then I buy a bolt! Haha!

  13. Leanne Avatar

    I have to say I really enjoy these blog hops! I always learn and see something new. My favorite “size” for fabric to buy is half yards and layer cakes…love a large varity of fabrics.
    Enjoy your day,

    I tend to buy fat quarters. But I’m just now getting into layer cakes and charm packs so I’m sure I will enjoy the ease of these precuts and they will soon become my favorite to purchase.

  15. Sandy Avatar

    Thank you for telling me about the blog shop hop. I have really enjoyed seeing the different quilts and the up close quilting. My favorite size for buying fabric is 1/3 yard and 1/2 yard cuts.

    I love the precuts, but I have a hard time deciding on how much fabric is enough when buying yardage. I recently bought 10 yards of solid white, thinking I might use it in several upcoming projects. We’ll see about that. I usually buy at least a yard of theme fabrics and maybe half to just a fat qtr of coordinates. Doesn’t seem like I ever have enough for what I eventually decide what to do! that having been said, I’m at no loss for fabric! What I need is the time to sew!

  21. Terri Karasch Avatar
    Terri Karasch

    Love all your fabrics! The new floral gatherings is very pretty; I definitely need some of that! I tend to buy one yard at a time, if I don’t know what I’ll be using it for.

    1. Sallie Avatar

      I usually buy fat quarters, but I’m thinking I should buy 1 yard pieces.

  22. Betsy Avatar

    I use to be a fat quarter girl, but now I’ll buy a yard of fabric that I like!!! I do have a collection of charms as well. It’s all good!

  23. Jill Avatar

    I buy a lot of fat quarters or quarter yards. I love the shirtings, can’t wait to see them in person! Great colors!

  28. timberlandsjs Avatar

    I love your block and the quilt you made for the blog hop—my favorite so far! I like to buy half yard cuts of fabric unless it is a really great deal and a basic fabric that I can use a lot as blenders or background… that case, I buy at least a yard or two. Of precuts, I love the fat quarter bundles and layer cakes. Jelly rolls can be nice but they do limit you a bit to the pattern you can use. Thanks for the chance to win a surprise!!

  29. Beth Avatar

    This blog hop is so much fun! I love to buy fat quarters. Pre-cuts are my favorites. But if I am really in love with a fabric I will buy at least a yard. I wouldn’t want to run short on my favorite! Thanks for sharing in this great blog hop.

    I have stopped buying fabric in small quantities as I have such a large stash.
    So now I buy 4 or 5 yards at a time to use as backings or to make a frock……

    I’m always buying half yard cuts.

    1. Sally Hurst Avatar
      Sally Hurst

      I agree with you–buying half yard pieces are the way to go, unless I really love the fabric and then will buy 2 or 3 yards of it. Charm packs are great, too, for variety. I love that Primitive Gatherings sells so many half yard cuts of fabric at quilt shows. See you at Road to California in January!

  36. Jacqueline Avatar

    I do half yard cuts mostly. They call me the scrap happy quilter in our group. I love your fabric designs and colors. Thanks for sharing your block and the eye candy of the quilts. And thanks for a chance at your give a way.

  37. Tina Avatar

    I usually buy fat quarters since I don’t really have a sewing space and it makes it easier to store. Then of course, I’m kicking myself when I need more yardage of a particular line and I can’t find it LOL! Love your new floral line and that flower quilt is just beautiful!

  38. Lizzie Avatar

    I often buy fat quarters so I can buy more variety at a time, but I really love half yards better. It’s fun to try to be frugal with the stash, but I hate to have to order again if I really fall for something! Lovely shots of your quilts!

  39. boscogregg Avatar

    I really love getting the fat quarter bundles and half yard cuts! Must say that my favorite line from Primitive Gatherings is “Little Gatherings” for the warm, rich and toasty colors! So beautiful, I think I’ve bought all of it there is left!

    I love a one-yard cut of fabric, and the charms. Can’t resist buying one yard, always looking to save some for another quilt or a new quilter to give her ideas. We have to pass on the bug – quilting bug that is!

    Oh Lisa I love the colors in your new line. The tulips are so cheerful, I’m going to need to make that one! I still love to buy fat quarters and usually without something in mind, habit maybe? But I’m really loving kits now too, for the quilts I do have in mind! Thanks for a chance to win!

    If its “cute” a fat quarter, if I “like ” it 1/2 yard, if I “love” it at least two yards with some coordinating fabrics. For Primitive Gatherings the whole line in fat quarters or half yard ties up with a ribbon! Thanks for the great blog hop. What fun!

    I’m a yardage kind of girl — bigger is better, right? Although lately I have found a few collections where I like just about every print, so I’ve bought layer cakes as a more affordable way to have it all. You can do a lot with 10″ squares.

  54. Val Avatar

    Love your new fabric line and i’m afraid I’m a Fat Quarter shopper but realize sometimes SIZE does matter and I really needed 1/2 yard.

  55. Brenda Howard Avatar

    Hi, I love 1/2 yards cuts too but I adore 5″ charms and layer cakes. I love your tulip quilt it is beautiful.

    Marsha Jean

    Love the close ups…always looking for ideas on quilting my quilts. As far as size goes, if I like a fabric 1/2 to 1 yard. But if the fabric is really calling to me (screaming out to me), I gotta get 3 yards… Oh, and I have been addicted to charm squares since they hit the market…but I don’t use them unless I absolutely have to. They look way too cute in a basket in my sewing room.

  59. gwendiequilts Avatar

    I love the tulip quilt! It just looks happy. I buy a lot of 1/3 yard pieces. They’re handy for scrappy quilts and applique. But if I really like something or it looks like a great background, I get yard between 1 and 3 yards. I honestly have to admit to not having many of those!

    What a great Blog Hop this is, I am really enjoying it. I watched the Schoolhouse video with the designers showing their blocks, it was quite funny. Thanks for your block pattern. I love the quilt you make from the block, it is so gorgeous! I love the colors you chose and how they play with your eyes when you look at the quilt, like the blocks are turning, it is great. Thanks!

  64. Sharron Avatar

    I often buy small pieces because I like scrappy quilts but if it’s something I really like, 3 yards it is. I also buy 5 to 7 yards if I think it will make a good backing fabric. Your new line is wonderful!

  65. Loris Mills Avatar

    Love the quilt you made with your block(s)! My favorite ‘size’ of fabric to buy is at least 2 yards…I hate to run out! I also love the precut charm squares where you get all the pieces of a fabric collection. Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

  66. Mary T Salmon Avatar

    Hi Lisa:
    I could hardly wait for your post and I was not disappointed! When I first starting quilting, I mainly bought FQs…can you believe that? Now, I never buy less than 3 yards. I have learned that if I like something, it will not be around a year from now!
    See you in Houston!

    After many years of always buying half yards, I’ve finally managed to scale it down to fat quarters or 1/3 of a yard unless I think it would make a great background or border…then I bump it up to a yard or 2. Love the new line Lisa and can’t wait to get some!

    I love 1/3 yard pieces. They seem large enough to do some piecing with and wide enough for applique. If I REALLY love the fabric, I get a 3 yard cut. Perfect for the longest borders or enough for a 2 or 3 fabric quilt!

    I also wanted to le tyou know that I love your fabrics and patterns!

    I try and buy at least a yard of a fabric I really like so I’ll be sure and have enough. I am guilty of “finishing” bolts though. I have a real fear of running out in the middle of a project, haha.

    Just love love love the new fabric line. Can hardly wait to get my hands on it. Love your new wool flannels too.
    I am the fat quarter queen…….edging up to 1/2 yards now. If I really like a fabric I usually buy a 2 yard cut.
    When I get home I always write in the salvage where I bought it and date so if I need more I know where to start.
    If the salvage doesn’t have the fabric line info on it I try to cut off a piece and make a note on it and stitch it to the corner so I have a reference in the future.

    1. Betty Avatar

      Charm packs and fat qtrs for the great variety of fabrics

  100. Mary Andra Avatar

    Love your block. Thank you. If I love the fabric it is 3 to 6 yards. If I like it I buy 1 yard. If I love the whole collection I but 1/2 yard of each and at least 3 to 6 yards of two different fabrics in the line.

  101. Cyndi Phillip Avatar
    Cyndi Phillip

    My favorite sizes of fabrics depends on my intended use. I have a tote full of 2-1/2″ strips. But if the new fabric says border I but 3-4 yards. If it says background I buy 5-6 yards. And of course backing is at least a 9 yard cut.

  102. sandy Avatar

    Being a fairly new quilter, I have been buying fat quarters to build my stash but thinking of going to 1/2 yards. I think they will be more functional. Thanks for the great post.

  120. Theresa Avatar

    In the past, I have always bought fat quarters. If you are in a hurry and don’t want to wait to have fabric cut, they are easy to grab and go. I love applique so small pieces are great for that too. I like using lots of fabrics in my quilts, usually, so with small cuts, I can afford more pieces! Love charm packs too.

  121. sorchagirl Avatar

    My favorite cut to buy has been the fat quarter; however, I recently did a project with a layer cake. I like the fabric colors in your Primitive Gatherings prints. Thanks for the chance to win some fabric, Lisa.

  122. Margi Avatar

    Lisa thank you so much for the great pictures. I always look forward to seeing you at quilt shows. While at long beach my daughter blessed me with your collection of perl cotton threads. They are beautiful…I love them. I use to buy fat quarters and half yard cuts which thru the years I have quite a stash. Now I am leaning to charm packs and jelly rolls…BUT there are those fabrics that grab m heart and I can live without, so I get three yards. Thinking of backings…maybe

  123. Jakey Avatar

    Hi Lisa, I love to buy charms and either 1/3, 1/2 or 1yd depending on how much I like the fabric and how many fabrics I like! Also, I love your quilt designs! FYI, sorry if this is a duplicate, I thought I entered a comment earlier in the day from my iphone and came back to get the pattern on my computer, but don’t see my comment posted among the many, so I re-entered in case I did it wrong from phone. Anyway… thanks for sharing!

Love all your fabrics and patterns. Doing the “Warm Winter Blessings” quilt now and have done many of your patterns and love them all.

Lately though I’ve been doing stuff with multiple charm/layer cake packets … very versatile. LOVE all these quilts and enjoy seeing how different just a colorway change can make one look. GREAT post!!

    Oh where to begin………I just loved the tulip quilt! The shirting fabric makes my mouth water. When I buy fabric I tend to purchase fat quarters. For no particular reasons. I will buy a nice boarder print for someday in 4 or 5 yard pieces. I like jelly rolls too and I have to say the little 2 1/2 inch squares are hard to resist .

    I usually bring home fat quarters for a scrap quilt or some charm squares or a layer cake if i want all of the prints in a line I love.

    My favorite size used to be fat quarters. But after sewing for more years now, my fave size to buy IS half yards, charms, or layer cakes. Your new line is so scrumpcious. I’d love to have it join my stash!

    Lisa I just wanted to tell you how much I admire your work. You create some of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen. Your fabric lines are always at the top of my favorites list. Right now Snowman Gatherings is my fabric of choice and last year it was your Seasonal Gatherings. Miniature snowmen, pumpkins, candy canes , crows and sheep are such a delight in your fabrics! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. P.S. You have some fabulous people representing you at the quilt shows. Super friendly and knowledgeable, great choices!

    Hi Lisa, Size matters to me. Right now I am into doll size quilts and love your new 3″ block quilt. I have enjoyed viewing the different quilt blocks. I like to buy 1/2 yard cuts to be sure I have enough for the little quilts to go with my antique dolls.

    my favorite way to buy fabric is “on sale”. LOL. I find that I normally buy 1/2 yard pieces. I like layer cakes too. Thanks for being part of the fun blog hop.

    Love your tiny blocks! When I was poor, I tried to buy 1/3 yard because it was big enough to do a lot of things. Now I buy either FQ or as much yardage as I need.

    I like to buy my fabric in one yard pieces if I really like it. Otherwise a half yard will make me happy.

  147. Sue Smith Avatar

    I agree with Janelle – on sale! Guess I have more fat quarters than anything else….

    I like charm packs and yard pieces! Love the dogs – trying to look innocent. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Your dogs are so cute! I like to buy jelly rolls. Its so easy to manage when I’m cutting fabric for 1″ hexagons. Thank you for the chance to win.

    I like fat quarters and Layer Cakes. but charm packs are so much fun too! Thanks for sharing.

  151. Bebe Avatar

    I like half yards, but I’ll get a yard if it’s something I really like. You have to buy it when you see it, or you won’t find it ever again– companies are rarely doing second printings of fabric anymore.

    I like fat quarters and 5″ squares

  153. Harriett Avatar

    I like to get fat quarters unless I’ thinking of backing.

    Hi I love fat quarters and charm packs (2 of the same of course) lol. Love the tulip quilt, have a real fondness for flowers of any kind. Thanks for a chance to win!

  155. Michele Avatar

    I have recently started “downsizing” to 1/2 yd cuts. Just used my first jelly roll and have a bunch of sampler packs. I will still go BIG on a pice of backing or a good quality white on white.

    Love the tulips, especially the background fabrics. Interesting and makes them stand out.

    Beautiful fabric and quilts. Thank you for the block.

    I used to buy a lot of fat quarters and charm packs since I like to make scrappy quilts. Now that I have so many I’m buying 3 yards pieces for borders and background fabrics.

    When my pocketbook allows me to purchase what I really want, the “yard” cut wins…..when the pennies are tight I buy “fat quarters”.
    Love your blog (and you publish exactly the right amount…I was out of town when you asked this question & I would have been too late with my answer) and luv your patterns & fabrics.
    You GO girl 😛

    Beautiful tulip quilt. I buy 1/2 yd cuts and I treat myself to a layer cake now and then.

    My favorite is charm packs – give you a chance to play with new fabric with much investment.

    Glad to see your an animal lover. When it comes to material. I like 1/2 yds [ you have 2 fat qtrs ] and easy to store. BUT if I love it, 3 yds or more for sure.

  165. Willeke Avatar

    I love to buy fat quarters…*Ü*… And sometimes in yards… uh centimeters (I’m from Holland). My favorite quantity is 25 cm.

    I buy lots of fat quarters, but always wishing I had got more. Ijust love your quilts.

    I usually buy layer cakes whenever the purse allows, that way I have more fabric to stroke and play with! 😉

    Beautiful work! I like to buy fat quarters, for flexibility. Also buy a yard or yard and a half of fabric for a specific project. Thank you!

    I usually buy half yard cuts unless it is a fabric I think I’ll definitely want more….so will buy 1-1/2 yds to 2 yds. I like to buy a charm pack of each new fabric line so I can have them for reference to buy additional yardage in the line. I love all of your fabrics and enjoyed meeting you in Paducah this year!

    I usually buy a half yard, unless it’s for paper piecing,in which case 30cm is often enough.

    I used to get quarter yards but now half yards are the best.. I would almost always wished I had bought a half yard, so that is my new rule.. loved the shirtings and all the fabric.. While in Wausau I bought some of your new flannels.. They are soooo soft.. Thanks and good luck to all,

  175. Marie Avatar

    Lots of fat quarters. But finding I’m needing larger yardage for borders and such now.

  176. Angela Avatar

    I like buying whole yards because I don’t mind having extra fabric for other projects!

    Thanks for the opportunity – and I usually buy 1/2 yards and FQs. I love scrappy.

  178. Betty Burton Avatar

    I usually end up with 1/4 yds ’cause scrappy quilts are still my favorites. Building a stash of small prints & 30’s prints. But then again that’s not written in stone since many online stores allow only 1/2 yd minimums (no local quilt shops where I live). Love the quilts shown here.

    I like jelly rolls and 1yd. cuts. Thanks for the giveaway. FUN bloghop!

  180. Alice Avatar

    great blog hop! I usually get half meters or charm packs. If there is a whole line available and I love the line, I will get 1/4 meter of each.

    I used to buy fat quarters and charm packs, but I’ve upgraded to 1 yard cuts…although I still can’t resist precuts now and then.

    I love charm packs and fat quarter bundles. The possibilities are endless and especially with the charm packs, a lot of cutting is already complete.
    Love the quilt that the dogs are testing. Good quilts are always quality-control tested by pets – a requirement!

    May I just say what a comfort to find somebody who
    genuinely understands what they are talking about
    on the web. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. More and more people need to read this and understand this side of
    your story. I was surprised you are not more popular given
    that you definitely possess the gift.
