    I love the colors in your new line.

  7. September 11, 2013 at 8:26 am

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

    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 the quilt you made from the blog block. And I love your fabric collections and designs. i have several of your SBOW quilts.

  11. September 11, 2013 at 8:48 am

    I love 1 yard cuts and layer cakes ๐Ÿ™‚ The floral gathering shirting fabrics are on my must have list ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. September 11, 2013 at 8:50 am

    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!

    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. 15 Sandy
    September 11, 2013 at 9:01 am

    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. 21 Terri Karasch
    September 11, 2013 at 9:09 am

    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.

  22. 23 Betsy
    September 11, 2013 at 9:10 am

    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. 24 Jill

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

  24. 25 Linda Cates

    My favorite to buy is a fat quarter. I love quilts with as many different fabrics as possible. Great post!

    Beautiful designs and fabrics! Thanks for the inspiration!

  28. September 11, 2013 at 9:19 am

    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…..in 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. 30 Beth
    September 11, 2013 at 9:23 am

    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 love your quilt! My favorite cut is a yard.

  32. 33 Deborah from Valpo
    September 11, 2013 at 9:27 am

    If I could, I would buy fat eighths….just little pieces for my little quilts!

  33. 34 Chiska
    September 11, 2013 at 9:27 am

    My favorite cut is a yard and I love your quilt!

  34. 35 Gloria B
    September 11, 2013 at 9:45 am

    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……

  35. 36 Jonelle
    September 11, 2013 at 9:45 am

    I’m always buying half yard cuts.

    • 37 Sally Hurst
      September 11, 2013 at 9:50 am

      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. September 11, 2013 at 9:48 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 9:48 am

    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. 40 Lizzie
    September 11, 2013 at 9:51 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 9:52 am

    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!

  45. 47 Sandy Saylor
    September 11, 2013 at 10:07 am

    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!

  46. 48 Rita Nichols
    September 11, 2013 at 10:14 am

    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!

  47. 49 Jackie

    September 11, 2013 at 10:19 am

    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!

    Tied not ties, Sorry,

    Pretty dogs. I like buying fat quaters and charm packs, some time jelly rolls

    September 11, 2013 at 10:28 am

    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. 56 Val
    September 11, 2013 at 10:40 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 10:57 am

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

    September 11, 2013 at 11:06 am

    I usually buy a 1 yard cut but if I like the entire line I will buy a layer cake or FQ bundle.

  58. 60 Marsha Jean
    September 11, 2013 at 11:07 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 11:08 am

    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!

  60. 62 Barb C
    September 11, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Hi, Lisa this blog has been fun, I like to collect fat quarters, (not a body part hee hee) my quilt group gives two fat quarters to each B-day girl and we end up with 14 fat quarters on our B-day, thx BarbConboy

    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!

    September 11, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    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. September 11, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    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. September 11, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    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!

  70. 73 Pam H
    September 11, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    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!

  71. 74 Karen Strausheim

  73. 76 Fran Bianchi
    September 11, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    I usually buy 1/2 yard cuts from your booth at Road to California, or 1 yard cuts. If it’s something I love, I have been known to buy 3-5 yards. You know what they say….if you love it you better buy it cuz once it’s gone, it’s gone forever!

    I love your fabric line and the floral shirtings are just too cute. Gotta have some of that!

    Thanks for the chance to win a prize!

  74. 77 Karen Dobbs
    September 11, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    I try to buy what a pattern calls for. But if I don’t know for sure, I usually buy 1/3 – 1/2 yard cuts. Thanks for your beautiful designs!

  75. 78 Jean Elliott
    September 11, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    I usually buy 3/4 yard pieces if it’s just for my “Stash”, otherwise I buy what my pattern calls for. Was at your “store” at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo – very nice!

  76. 79 Norma C.
    September 11, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    My favorite size to buy is 1 yd cuts if I like a fabric or fat quarters. It all depends on the project.. But if I really, really, really like a fabric I will purchase 3 yd cuts, but this is so very rare

  80. 83 LJ
    September 11, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Holy smokes! Look at all those marvelous quilts. Your block is adorable and so is the 18″er but I love the Square Dance in dark and the tulip quilt. Beautiful!

  81. 84 Judy Balek
    September 11, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    I love your block also. And now I think I am going to have to get me some or all of your shirtings. My favorite size fabric to by are 1/2 yard cuts and I am just getting into the jelly roll. They can be a lot of fun to play with.

  82. September 11, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Oh!! so glad I came back – Love all those beautiful quilts! And can’t wait to see the shirtings in person, must have some.

  90. 93 Claudia
    September 11, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Shh, don’t tell. I have started buying 2 yards of all fabrics. Well, unless I buy a bolt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  91. 94 Wendy
    September 11, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    I love charm squares! You get a piece of every fabric in the line and they don’t take up a lot of space. Half yards are my next favorite. Thanks for a chance at your secret giveaway!

  96. 99 Sue H
    September 11, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    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!

  97. 100 michelle starr

    I am a 1/2 yard kinda gal. Thanks for the ideas.

  98. 101 Cathy Remus
    September 11, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    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.

  99. 102 Diann Selke
    September 11, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    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.

  100. September 11, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    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. 105 Cyndi Phillip
    September 11, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    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. 106 sandy
    September 11, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    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.

    I love getting 1/2 yard cuts. The charm packs are lots of fun too. I want to try the jelly rolls and layer cakes too because I’m sure I’ll find them great fun also.

    I love your “penny candy” quilt (I adore shirtings) and I think it would make up beautifully with my favorite cut of fabric the jelly roll! Thanks for all the inspiration

    Great blog. I always look forward to the next post. My favorite size to buy is one yard cuts. Keeping my fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Half yards are definitely the size I purchase most, but I also love the challenge of a good-sized scrap bag.

    September 11, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    I don’t really have a favorite size in the fabric line but usually buy half yard cuts, or fat qtr bundles. Also there are the charm packs in a certain drawer in the sewing room ๐Ÿ™‚ The quilts are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  114. 119 Debra Hayes
    September 11, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    If I really like the fabric my favorite cut to purchase is 5-6 yards that way I have enough for piecing and/or borders. I always enjoy your blog postings.

    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. September 12, 2013 at 12:17 am

    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. 127 Margi
    September 12, 2013 at 12:26 am

    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. 128 Jakey
    September 12, 2013 at 12:38 am

    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 charm squares and jelly rolls, but that could change as I was really into fat quarters. I just like fabric. Love your square dance quilt. The square in a square, fabulous.

  126. 131 Marilyn W
    September 12, 2013 at 7:25 am

    Beautiful quilts. I generally buy 1/2 yds of fabrics if I am not sure what the end use will be. Thanks for participating in such a great blog hop.

    I just love buying all of the sizes. Love the jelly rolls and 5′ charms and layer cakes. See, so hard to pick a winner. When I am in doubt and really love a fabric, I buy 3 yards. Love all your fabrics and patterns. Doing the “Warm Winter Blessings” quilt now and have done many of your patterns and love them all.

  129. 134 Jennifer
    September 12, 2013 at 8:09 am

    Lisa, your fabric and designs are beautiful!! when I’m around beautiful fabric I find myself unable to purchase anything less than a half yard ๐Ÿ™‚

  131. 136 Donna Joy
    September 12, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I like to buy meter lengths, and the charm packs. So I end up with a very large stash. The penny quilt us darling.

    If I really like a line I’ll buy the FQ assortment … plus additional of a specific pattern I like for a border/backing. 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!!

    September 12, 2013 at 11:18 am

    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 .

  135. 140 Lisa
    September 12, 2013 at 11:42 am

    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.

  136. 141 Marie Chat
    September 12, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    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!

  137. September 12, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    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!

  139. September 12, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    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.

    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. September 12, 2013 at 8:39 pm

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

    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.

    September 12, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    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.

  156. 161 Judith
    September 12, 2013 at 11:31 pm

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

    September 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    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.

  160. 165 Jackie R.
    September 13, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    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 ๐Ÿ˜›

    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. September 13, 2013 at 10:42 pm

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

  166. September 14, 2013 at 6:09 am

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

  167. 172 Yvonne Abbott
    September 14, 2013 at 7:09 am

    September 14, 2013 at 8:14 am

    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!

  169. 174 Lana Drum
    September 14, 2013 at 10:03 am

    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! Lana

  171. September 14, 2013 at 2:38 pm

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

  172. September 14, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    I love charm packs. I have been making pot holders and hot pads from them. Thanks for the chance to win.

    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. 180 Marie

  176. 181 Angela
    September 14, 2013 at 5:37 pm

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

  178. 183 Betty Burton
    September 14, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    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.

  179. 184 Linda

    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.

  181. 186 Lori B
    September 15, 2013 at 11:18 am

    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!

  185. 190 Shirley Pearce
    September 15, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Fun Blog Hop , great patterns and such wonderful large sizes of blocks! Love your tulip quilt-great colors too!

    Thanks for sharing and the giveaway is quite generous!

  186. September 16, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Ohhh, I don’t remember what I wrote to you… but…..I hope you count me in. Thanx for your generous offer of the lovely fabrics. It’s amazing how creative you are. Don’t know how you design these lovely things…. very inspiaring.

  187. March 29, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    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.
