Size Matters! or does it? up…


I hope everyone is enjoying this HOP…Moda is so “cool”  organizing these hops so we all  can get to know each other a little better and then all talk  about our newest fabrics!  Then they give  us prizes to give-a-way!!!  Don’t forget to check back to the Moda Blog to print the pattern with ALL of our blocks!  I am sure it is going to awesome!  Today I am posting with 2 other great Moda designers…here are their blogs…Kathy Schmitz Studios   &    Minick & Simpson so hop on over to see what they got going on and maybe win their prize too!

I am supposed to talk about how size matters….well… I was thinking about this as I was driving…and guess what pulls up beside me?  A big o’l truck wrecker…the one that picks up disabled trucks and brings them back home safely…and as I am thinking about the blog hop and wondering what I am going to write about…I noticed this on the the truck…Size Does Matter….securedownload so I had to snap a pic of it for the blog post…lol…this could only happen to me…now don’t scold me for using my phone while driving…I wasn’t texting I was being a photographer…So here are my thoughts on SIZE…if we are talking quilts….I like tiny pieces and then I also love big clunky quilts like the last book I did..Flannel Gatherings.  I think size is a very personal matter and is as far and anything else…I am glad there are all kinds of sizes…would the world be boring if there was only one size???


Now for the blog hop I made this little quilt….Click Here  For the block I made the 18″ quilt that we were supposed to make…A lot of the designers have just a little trouble following directions…do you know why?  They are way too creative…they can’t keep focused for that long and their mind reads something…anyway I made this quilt using a 3″ block…here are the measurements…A  4-1 1/4″x 2″    B  4-1 1/4″x 2″ and C 8-1 1/4″x 1 1/4″  as they are not listed on this chart for the block pattern…

Now I want to share with you the other quilts made from the same fabric line as my mini quilt.  The fabric line is called Floral Gatherings and then there is also Floral Gatherings Shirtings…This is super cool to have the extra 20 prints to work with.  I am showing a close up also so you can take a peek at how they all were quilted…they are all so beautiful…The quilts kits and patterns can be purchased on our site Here

If we don't look at her maybe she won't see us here...
If we don’t look at her maybe she won’t see us here…

So go size up that project you are working on and finish it so you hopefully can make a sizable dent in your fabric stash and then can go and purchase more Moda fabric!!!

Please leave a comment if you want to win one of the 8 prizes you Moda and I are giving away… They are a surpize so you better comment if you want a chance at these great prizes…Let me know what you favorite “size” of fabric is to buy….Mine is half yards and 5″ charms..

    Perfect photo of that saying on the huge truck. What timing! : )
    LOVE what you created–such a sweet little quilt, and so pretty in your new line of fabric.
    I have to add that I love the dark version of Square Dance very much!!

    Half yards are great because you have enough of a print, but allow for more prints in a lap size quilt, the more the better! But I buy charm packs all the time in order to have a bit of all of it!

    I love buying charm packs. My only problem is that after I buy them-I hate cutting them up!!

  22. SallyM Avatar

    Love the shirtings in your new line, great background fabrics. I typically don’t just buy fabric unless I have a plan for it but I do like fat quarter bundles, it’s fun to see a line in a bundle!

    Love the floral fabric. Nice job on the quilts. The colours are really pretty!

    Size doesn’t matter – I love it all. LOL After many years stocking up on fat quarters to give my stash some variety, my thoughts turned to charm packs and larger cuts; I just bought lots of Primitive Gatherings 1/2 yds. at the Hershey show. Love ALL your designs!

    These are all great quilts. Love both fabric lines. Really difficult for me to walk past a line of good shirtings. Size does matter, and in addition to needing to make something smaller once we have given everyone we know a large quilt, smaller often gives us that new challenge for technique perfection.

    THanks for all the eye candy! My favorite size is Fat Quarters. I love variety. Next would be Charm packs, then 3 yard cuts. You can get most of a backing from a 3 yard cut, or all of a backing for a baby quilt!

    Yes yes yes, size matters!! No matter what Size quilt you are making, take a bit of time to make sure the Size you Cut is the Right Size for the pattern. I sometimes think if I took all the time I had used on mistakes, I’d have time to make another quilt or two! Just my personal confession..Jan Harritt

    A half of a yard is what I usually go with, but then it’s never enough. And, darn those adorable mini-charm packs that are so fun to keep wrapped up.

  40. Robbin Avatar

    I would say that fabric of any size is appealing to me. I have a ton of charm packs so I guess that would be my choice. Thanks for the inspiration!

  41. Kristy Avatar

    I am telling you, you and Linda are a match made in Heaven. Your quilt design and her quilting design are fabulous!!!! I did find the renegade tulip block…loved it! I also, love that Moda reprints some of your fabrics so I can buy it in one yard pieces. Yes, I said one yard pieces…..can you really ever have too much? I don’t think so. Kristy

  42. Tamie Avatar

    My favorite size is a fat quarter as I like variety. For practical purposes, I probably should buy half yards.

    I seem to buy mostly half yards. Thanks for the block pattern!

  44. mcthekat Avatar

    i love the small stuff and my best fabric size is 1yd. i always by a yard even if it call for less that is how i had to my stash. I have MS so when i can get my husband or sons and daughter inlaw to take me to the quilt shop its just great i make quilts for the sick to show them that people still care when they have no one. I love to see there smiles

  47. Janet Avatar

    I can’t wait for this fabric line to come out – it’s lovely! I like to buy fat quarters or half yards and who can resist those adorable little Moda candy precuts. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  48. Patti Avatar

    If my goal is to make a scrappy quilt I like to buy fat quarters or half yard pieces. I like the variety I get. If I can afford it I like to buy 1 yard pieces.

  49. Jean Avatar

    When I first started quilting I bought fat quarters …… then I started to buy 0.3 meter (1/3 yard) …… but that was never enough so I moved up to 1/2 meters ……. then, if on sale, I started to buy full meters ore even two if I really liked it …. I guess the real answer to what size I like best would be: As much as I can!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    Love the quilts! For me, it is all about fat quarters! I don’t feel as guilty hoarding… I mean stocking up!

  54. Charlotte Avatar

    I usually buy fat quarters because I love scrappy quilts. I do enjoy those little fabric packs ( 2 and 3 inch) that you sold in your store way before Moda came up with their candy packs. They are great for mini quilts which I love to make.

  55. Erin Avatar

    Love the tulip block! I buy all sizes. I love charms and jelly rolls, but in yardage, half yards are the way to go.

  56. Mary Avatar

    When I see a fabric I must have, but no specific project in mind, I always buy a yard of it! And I keep track of where I bought it, so I can always get more when I figure out how I will use it!

  57. Maryellen Avatar

    Thanks so much for the eye candy, and great fabric line! My favorite is 2 yards! You never know when you need it! I have charms, jelly rolls and FQ stacks, but have used more charms in quilts. I’ve only used one layer cake so far. Thanks!

    I just love the pattern and the tulip quilt on your blog. Size matters and depending on what type of quilt I make I buy different sizes of fabric. But most of all I like eights, so that I can include a lot of different fabrics in a quilt and do not have to make quilts using the same fabric again and again.

  63. Janet T Avatar

    Love the your patterns and fabrics! Especially the Square Dance quilts in the neutrals. I buy more yardage than packs, although I have a couple jelly rolls, FQ stacks, and charms.

    My favorite ‘size’ to buy is 2 yard cuts and here’s why: Sometimes I just really like the fabric but have no ‘use’ for it at that moment. But I know that is time I will and that’s when I congratulate myself at being smart enough to splurge. I also love the weight in my bag as I carry it out the door. I’m a gatherer; what can I say?

    I am a new quilter and so far when I buy fabric it is “by the yard”. A quarter yard would definitely be the smallest. I find myself buying 1/2 yards a lot because I am always scared of running out…….

    Love the little pinwheel quilt out of your new fabric line….the tulip quilt is so cute especially since I helped make some of the blocks and all the gorgeous quilting….guess I just love it all. If I really like the fabric I buy 1/2 yd or 1yd. Thanks for taking part in the Moda blog hop.

  93. Barbara Sindlinger Avatar

    The size of fabrics I get depends on the type of fabric – of course background fabrics I usually get 4 or 5 yards, but for other fabrics I go from fat quarter to 1/2 yards. I’m really liking scrappy quilts – the more fabrics the better. I also cut all my left over or scrap fabrics into 10″, 5″, 3.5″ and 2″ squares and of course I have strips boxes too.

  94. CathyK Avatar

    My favorite sizes of fabric to buy is either a Fat Quarter or a half yard!!! I just LOVE those quilts and that pillow!!! Wow!

    Well, my favorite size of fabric to purchase is one yard. In precuts, I LOVE jelly rolls and layer cakes!! I am thinking I need to shrink my favorite size to 1/2 yard like you, so I can decrease the size of my stash! Thank you for the opportunity to win!!

    Love all your “gatherings” collections. I’m an appliquer so I always went for small pieces. Around here in Lancaster County, PA most of the shops won’t cut anything smaller than 1/2 yards, so that’s what I collect. If I have a project in mind and love a collection, I’ll go for the Layer Cake. That gives me a wonderful selection and the size is great. I thank Moda for all their fabulous pre-cuts.

  101. Diane Avatar

    I started with Fat Quarters, but now find myself stashing half yard and one yard cuts. Then I ponder, “What if I make a baby quilt?” A baby quilt would need a yard and a quarter for the back. I usually round up to one and a half yards, “just in case”. Then I “go all in” and get two yards!

  102. Karen Qualls Avatar

    Floral Gatherings is great! I really like the Penny Candy quilt – it’s going on my list! I recently purchased a Desert Roll – I think it’s become my new “Favorite Cut”. Thanks for the little quilt pattern – so cute . . .

    Love all the blog quilts. I like to buy 1/2 or 1 yd pieces. That’s down from 3-5 yds when I used to do whole cloth quilts and clothes. I hate to run out of fabric and I seem to add more blocks to any pattern I am doing or cut something wrong. So I try to plan for my incompetence by getting a smidge more fabric than called for. (If I can afford it!)

    I started out buying FQ bundles, but i found that often they weren’t cut on the grain or they were skimpy. You can only get two 6″ squares across out of a 17″ FQ. So now I buy half yards if like a fabric or i buy a charm pack plus one yard when i just want a taste.

    My favorite size of fabric to buy is quarter yards, and 5 inch charms, because I make so many “mini” quilts or scrappy quilts. I love, love, love your little pinwheels! Adorable! And Theresa’s Tulips are charming! Thank you for your great fabrics, great patterns, and of course, the wonderful give-aways. I would love for this to be my lucky day 🙂

    I too like half yards. If you don’t want quite that much, you can share a FQ with a friend.

    my favorite size is 2 yards. other than that, half yards. Also starting my collection of jelly rolls. I love the Christmas-colored pinwheels! reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com

    My usual size of fabric to buy is 1/2 yard but then I always wish it was more! Love your quilts.

      I like to buy a yard if it’s a good sale, and a FQ if not.

    Oh, I love your tulip quilt! So pretty. My favorite to buy is fat quarters and 1 yard cuts. LOVE your work!!

    I seem to have a lot of charm squares around here but I’ve got drawers of fat quarters! You keep me pretty busy between your wool block of the week projects and yummy kits.
    I love your little quilt project! Can’t wait for Floral Gatherings….both lines.
    Thank You Lisa.

    What size I buy depends on the project. New scrap, charms or fat quarters. Batik, at least 1/2 yard. Looks interesting as border, 3 yards. If I just like it 1 yard! Love your blog & web site, wonderful for after work destressing.

    I love love all your fabrics. As to my favorite size, I just buy the whole bolt! I don’t want to run out.

    That is so funny the way that truck with “size does matter” was next to you. I love what you did with your block. Thanks for the chance to win a prize and for sharing your quilts. Square dance is quite intriguing and the tulip one is so pretty. I usually get two yards (or more if needed) when I’m buying yardage and I love to collect fat quarters to add to my stash.

    I like 1/2 yd cuts, and fat quarters. Haven’t got into charm packs. You are so inspiring. Thanks so much.

    Your fabric and patterns and Linda’s quilting = talk about a winning combination! Size matters when it comes to buying fabric — large prints usually mean a half yard but small prints (like your beautiful shirtings) warrant larger pieces — just so versatile!

    My favorite size to purchase is a “jelly roll” …. That way you get a little of everything in a new line of fabric. Or if it is something that I REALLY love, then 7 yards of fabric is a safe amount, because you will never run out … LOL!

    My favorite size is a half yard cut followed by a quarter yard cut. Love the new fabric line. Can’t wait til it is available for order! Can’t wait to visit your booth next week in Atlanta!

    Size does matter.Thanks for look at that truck. Like 1/2 yard cuts.

    I can’t believe you saw a truck with “size matters” written on it – that is way to weird. Size of the fabric stash matters! We need lots to choose from!

    I buy mostly half yards now. It used to be one yard pieces, but I really don’t need pieces that large for scrappy quilts. Scrappy is what I love!

    I usually buy 1/2 yards, sometimes more if I think I might want to use it as a focal fabric or borders

  148. Colette Avatar

    I love these fabrics and quilts! I am especially smitten with the tulip quilt!! I usually purchase 1/2 yards and 2 yards for borders. I also pickup jelly rolls for some quilts but I haven’t really become comfortable with them yet. Cute pups!!! Cheers, Colette

  149. SuzieLou Avatar

    Well, the more the better, so in this case I like the small size charms packet so I can have a bigger choice in my stash (read bigger size stash)!

    I generally by 1/3 yard cuts. A little more than 1/4; a little extra if I am swapping 5″ charms…..

  153. Suzanne Avatar

    My favorite size fabric cuts to purchase: 6 – 6 1/2 yds for wide borders that have a big print to match. This has gone up since I’ve been sewing for queen sized beds. Maybe 4 yards for sashing. 1/2 to 1 yard for something I might like in a scrappy quilt. Your 18″ quilt is a treasure.

    I started off buying fat quarters, now my favorite sizes are layer cakes and full yards. 🙂

    I started buying fat quarters but now it’s yards with occasional jelly rolls or charm packs thrown in:)

  158. Suzanne Avatar

    Oh, my, I’m not sure I have a favorite “size” amount of fabric to buy. If I love it I but a lot of it. I’m always afraid I will end up not having enough, so if there is 8.5 yards left on the bold I’ll buy it. I figure that I will use it in the front, the backing…pillows, whatever. As far as blocks go, I’d say my favorite size to make is a 12″. I tend to love large quilts. I have dreams of making small quilts, but they are just dreams at this point. I know that logic says you can make way more small quilts than large ones, but I love to cuddle in the quilts, see them on beds, hanging on racks around the house, used as table clothes, etc. Like you said, life would be so boring if we all loved the same size things. Thanks!

    I love buying almost any size of fabric, but tend to buy mostly fat quarters. They are just the right size for making small wall hanging size quilts. I also like how nicely they are folded – easy to mix and match within a fabric line, or with other designer’s fabrics. Thanks for always coming up with such creative projects. I am so glad I found you and Primitve Gatherings!

    Looking forward to the pattern Square Dance arriving, its on my to do list. A favourite fabric size would be yards, but that’s not necessarily how I buy it 🙂 What beautiful dogs you have and they match the quilt so nicely!! Many thanks for the quilt block pattern.

    *I think my original comment disappeared,
    Love the Square Dance pattern, can’t wait until it is available, (hope the dogs come with it when I buy it :). My favourite fabric size is yards, but that’s not necessarily how I purchase it.

  163. Kathy Avatar

    I use to like to buy fat quarters or charm packs but I have so many….I stopped and now I buy 1/2 yards and If I really love the fabric I buy 3-4 yards. Your fabrics are soooo wonderful ….I love them all. Keep up the good work.

  164. Gina Avatar

    I tend to purchase 1/2 yards as well although if I really like it I have been known to go for a yard or two! I also like jelly rolls as it gives me a collection in a very usable size. I do love your fabrics they seem to be right up my alley!

  168. kay Avatar

    I use all sizes, but lately I’ve been gravitating towards layer cakes. Of course, fat quarters are the best, because they can be cut up into lots of precut sizes!

  169. carol gillen Avatar

    I am embracing the layer cake as my new favorite size. Thank you, Lisa for this giveaway.
