Size Matters! or does it? up…

size-matters_250x460

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 pattern..now 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 else..lol…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..

    I have purchased fatquarters, and charm squares. Will purchase anywhere from 1 to 3 yards, depending on the
    type of project that I hope to make. Thanks for the chance to win.

  14. September 11, 2013 at 8:47 am

    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!!

  15. 16 Deb
    September 11, 2013 at 8:47 am

    Gorgeous quilts! My favorite sized fabric to purchase would be fat quarters. I haven’t really ever considered buying half yards but that may be something I should consider next time I shop!! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Love your little quilt. I think it is so cute. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. September 11, 2013 at 8:53 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 9:02 am

    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!

  23. 24 Nancy
    September 11, 2013 at 9:02 am

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

  24. September 11, 2013 at 9:02 am

    I love the blue and brown combination – and the dogs!!!

  25. 26 Kate
    September 11, 2013 at 9:05 am

    Love the quilts- they all are lovely. I like FQs and charm packs. They are small enough that I can buy and not feel guilty!

  26. 27 Ann in PA
    September 11, 2013 at 9:05 am

    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!

  27. 28 Elaine S.

    I usually buy kits. Love the Square Dance Dark.

    Beautiful! And to answer your “size” question, I seem to mostly buy fat quarters. Love that scrappy look!

    I’m with you – half yards and charms! 🙂

    I like to purchasd fat quarters and charm packs since I love small projects!

  34. 35 Carolyn Vogel
    September 11, 2013 at 9:21 am

    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.

  35. 36 Quilty Jen
    September 11, 2013 at 9:22 am

    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!

  36. 37 Candee Abraham
    September 11, 2013 at 9:22 am

    My favorites are charms of all sizes, snippets & fat quarters. Now I want to go fabric shopping! You are always inspiring.

  37. September 11, 2013 at 9:27 am

    Beautiful, beautiful quilts! Thanks for all the photos and the pattern for your block.

  38. 39 janharritt@yahoo.com
    September 11, 2013 at 9:31 am

    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. 41 Robbin
    September 11, 2013 at 9:32 am

    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. 42 Kristy
    September 11, 2013 at 9:32 am

    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. 43 Tamie
    September 11, 2013 at 9:35 am

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

  43. September 11, 2013 at 9:37 am

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

  44. 45 mcthekat
    September 11, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Beautiful, beautiful quilts! Thanks for all the photos and the pattern for your block. I like to buy 1 yard cuts, mostly, but some charm packs and jelly rolls sneak their way in from time to time :-))

  45. 46 Kathy S.
    September 11, 2013 at 9:40 am

    I love charm packs and jelly rolls–they take the guess work out of matching up fabrics and colors!

  46. 47 michelle kozak
    September 11, 2013 at 9:41 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 9:42 am

    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. 49 Patti
    September 11, 2013 at 9:42 am

    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. September 11, 2013 at 9:42 am

    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!

  50. September 11, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Oh the tulip quilt is gorgeous. It makes me want to try applique. I am girl that is just happy with everyone else’s leftovers. I love a gallon bag filled with scrap!!

  51. 52 Linda L
    September 11, 2013 at 9:43 am

    I love all the precuts, but especially jelly rolls and fat quarters. I find these the most versatile. Love floral gatherings. Thanks for your inspiration.

  52. 53 Lana Cadwallader
    September 11, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Lately I buy at least a yard and I love charm packs. I’m in love –scratch that–addicted to your designs and website.

  53. September 11, 2013 at 9:45 am

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

  54. 55 Charlotte
    September 11, 2013 at 9:45 am

    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. 56 Erin
    September 11, 2013 at 9:46 am

    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. 57 Mary
    September 11, 2013 at 9:46 am

    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. 58 Maryellen
    September 11, 2013 at 9:47 am

    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!

  58. 59 Terri U
    September 11, 2013 at 9:47 am

    If buying fabric by the yard then it is 1/2 yard and i love the precuts (charms, jellys and layer cakes).

    I have enjoyed the blog hop. I am a big fan of yours, great fabrics and quilt ideas to go with it.

  62. September 11, 2013 at 9:54 am

    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. 64 Janet T
    September 11, 2013 at 9:55 am

    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.

  64. 65 Anne Manly
    September 11, 2013 at 9:55 am

    I remember playing with whirlygigs! All sizes blowing in the wind – thanks for the inspiration to re-create such a wonderful memory. Always love your fabric – hard to control which size to get though – I want it all.

  65. September 11, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Love your Little Quilt and the Tulips. Thanks for a chance to win. If I like a fabric will buy 2 yards, sometimes 3. Love fat quarter bundles also.

  66. 67 Chris Teague
    September 11, 2013 at 9:59 am

    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?

    Fat quarters are my preferred size for fabric because I love to make scrap quilts and lots of fat quarters gives me lots of variety.

    September 11, 2013 at 10:02 am

    Lately, I have been collecting a lot of charm packs and fat quarters. It gives my pieces interest and sparkle due to the variety of fabrics. Thanks for the block and the chance to win some goodies!

  70. 72 Nancy Augustine
    September 11, 2013 at 10:02 am

    I like to buy 1 yard or 2 yard cuts or a fat quarter bundle. That seems to be enough for a full size quilt which is what I like to make.

  71. September 11, 2013 at 10:04 am

    Really like those neutrals. The quilt with the double dogs upon it. I normally lean to brighter colors but these really appeal.

  72. 74 Diane S
    September 11, 2013 at 10:06 am

    Love your designs. Right now I’m buying 2/3 of a yd. to make my own 10 in or 11 in and the left over will be saved for a strip quilt squares

  73. 75 Michele B
    September 11, 2013 at 10:07 am

    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…….

  74. September 11, 2013 at 10:10 am

    I like to buy half yard cuts and love the fat quarter packs as they give me lots of fabrics that go together to work with. Your appliqued tulips are my favorites.

  75. 77 Cheryl B
    September 11, 2013 at 10:12 am

    The yard is my go-to size of fabric. Love your renegade tulip! What a fun way to inject some sassy personality into a quilt.

  76. 78 Julee
    September 11, 2013 at 10:20 am

    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.

  77. 79 Jakey
    September 11, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Hi Lisa, I love charms too, and size depends on how many and much I like… so either 1/3, 1/2, or 1+ yds. I love your designs and color ways! Thanks for sharing!

  78. 80 Mary C.

    September 11, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I usually buy charms and 1/4 yards, but I also like fat quarters and 1/2 yards depending on project. Thanks!

  87. September 11, 2013 at 11:03 am

    Love the Floral Gatherings fabric line. It’s perfect in all the quilts pictures on your blog.

  88. 91 April Hurley
    September 11, 2013 at 11:04 am

    I am with you on the half yard pieces, but I also love layer cakes. I don’t know why but its a great size that shows the print, but is small enough to be easy to deal with!!!

  89. September 11, 2013 at 11:06 am

    Love the quilting on the tulip quilt. Love lots of the things on your blog!

  90. 93 Hildy
    September 11, 2013 at 11:07 am

    My favorites are charm packs and FQs. I rather have alot of scraps are small pieces of fabrics to creat a unique and scrappy quilt than one quilt with just a few fabrics.

  91. 94 Debbie R.
    September 11, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Love your mini-quilt. Nice use of those pretty, tiny whirlygig blocks. My favourite cut of fabric is fat quarters — and lots of them!

    Great ideas!

  93. September 11, 2013 at 11:19 am

    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. 97 CathyK
    September 11, 2013 at 11:21 am

    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!

    September 11, 2013 at 11:23 am

    I love your mini quilt!! I’m partial to Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls, but I pretty much will use anything I can get my hands on!!

    I like to buy 1yd pieces & fat quarters. Loving this hop. Thanks for the give away.

    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.

    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. September 11, 2013 at 11:37 am

    Awesome fabrics and patterns!

    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 . . .

    I have come to love the precuts – but I still like to buy yardage – usually at least 1 yard.

    I have never used jelly rolls, charm packs, or layers cakes. Busy sewing your wonderful wool kits…I think the charm packs would be my favorite, sweet & small 🙂

  107. September 11, 2013 at 11:42 am

    I was right! I just knew I was going to love whatever it was you came up with for this fun hop! I’d have to agree with you that my favorite cuts are 1/2 yard and charm packs. Thanks so much for sharing your little quilt!

    Reblogged this on Babs Blog and commented:
    Love your creativity, and yes, I found that 1 renegade (stipled) quilted block – there’s always one in the bunch:-). My favorite sizes are yards, 1/2 yard and 5″ charms. Love Theresa’s Tulips.

    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!)

    Being a newbie quilter I am trying to build my stash. I usually by 1/2 yd cuts……..1 yd if I really love the fabric. Thank you for sharing!

  119. September 11, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    September 11, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    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.

    September 11, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    September 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    I think my favorite “size” to purchase is 1/2 yard pieces. I find that FQ just aren’t large enough, so I’ve started picking up fabrics I like in half yard cuts.

  126. September 11, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    I love jelly rolls, but if I really like a fabric, I generally buy 3 yards of it. Needless to say, I now have a stash beyond life expectancy!

  127. 132 Mary Ann

    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 🙂

  129. September 11, 2013 at 1:40 pm

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

  130. September 11, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    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

  135. September 11, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    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.

  137. September 11, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    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.

  139. 145 Cathy Weatherford
    September 11, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    September 11, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    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!

  141. 147 Jean
    September 11, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    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!

  142. 148 Martha C.
    September 11, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    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!

  143. 149 Carol Singleton
    September 11, 2013 at 3:05 pm

  145. 151 Carol C
    September 11, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    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!

  147. 153 Patty Happel
    September 11, 2013 at 3:25 pm

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

  148. September 11, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    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

    September 11, 2013 at 3:29 pm

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

  153. 159 Suzanne
    September 11, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    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.

  154. 160 Carol Y

    September 11, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    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!

  160. 168 Kathy B.
    September 11, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    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!

  161. September 11, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    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.

  162. September 11, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    *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. 171 Kathy
    September 11, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    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. 172 Gina
    September 11, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    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!

  165. 173 Cathy W

    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. September 11, 2013 at 5:31 pm

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

    Wow! Amazing how one line of fabric can provoke such a range of color and emotional impact when placed in quilts. From dark and powerful to light and spring like.

    Your block is wonderful…thanks for sharing the smaller sizes. If time and money were no object I would make at least half of the quilts you shared with us! Fabulous work. I tend to buy fat quarters but am rethinking that plan. Maybe 1/2 yards would be better. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

    September 11, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    I prefer buying fabric in at least 1 yard cuts, if I really like it I buy as much of it as I can. I can always cut it down myself

  181. September 11, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    I like to buy 1-3 yards depending on the price and my desire to use the fabric.

  182. 190 mary rhodes
    September 11, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Size matters on fabric depends on quilt or just in the stash! I do love fat quarters for scrappy quilts! If like it may get 4 yards! I’m fabric aloholic!!! Lol!

    I usually buy 1/2 yard fabric unless I am so absoluately in love with the fabric then I buy 1 yard or more. Love the new Floral Gatherings fabric line but that doesn’t surprise me because I love, love, love just about everything in your shop especially wool applique. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

    September 11, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    That is a great block you contributed to the hop, and really like that quilt you made using it. Think I might just make it in the same colors as yours. The new Floral Gatherings fabric line is so pretty! I also, like 1/2 yd. cuts; but do have fq’s, layer cakes, and charm packs in my stash too. When I buy the charms or cakes, I try to get some yardage in at least two of the fabrics for borders and binding.

  196. September 11, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    Any size of fabric makes me happy, but I typically buy 1/4 meter cuts or 1/3 meter cuts. I like a scrappy look!

  197. 205 Jane S.
    September 11, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    I’m a sucker for charm packs, but I also like fat quarters. Oh heck, I just plain love fabric! 🙂

  198. September 11, 2013 at 8:12 pm

    I have charm packs and layer cakes on hand and when I find a great pattern I’m ready to tackle any size of quilt. Thanks for the chance to win a prize!! Love your quilt examples!

    Beautiful fabrics and the quilts shown are just gorgeous. If I could afford it, I would buy the 1/2 yard fabric bundles. Sadly, I can’t so when I can I buy the fat quarter bundles. I would prefer the 1/2 yards though.

    I buy fabric by the 2 yards if I love it, it’s too difficult to balance at a larger size, and 1 yard if I need it to complement a project. Recently I’ve fallen in love with charm packs with a matching jelly roll.. they make a much more *affordable* way to get an entire line of fabric and make a nice size for paper piecing!

    I love the cute half yard cuts you sell at the quilt shows, especially the buy 5 get one free! I’m beginning to love charm packs, both the teeny and 5 inch. They are ready to go when the spirit moves and make a spectacular quilt or other project

    I love buying precuts like jelly rolls and charm packs. If I buy yardage I like to buy at least 1/2 yard if it is for my stash.

    Love fat quarters, but sometimes not enough

  210. September 11, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    I love Love LOVE fabric…all colors, prints and sizes!!! I have quite a collection of charm packs and fat quarters but I probably have just as much yardage too! Thanks for the blog and the pattern, have a blessed day!

  211. September 11, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    I’m new-ish to quilting, but I’ve been sewing my whole life. So, my favorite amount of fabric to get is 1 yard pieces so that I have enough. (that probably doesn’t even make sense! But I do love 1 yard cuts!) I’m just starting to collect fat quarters and 5″ charm squares, but haven’t made anything with them yet! My “inner quilter” is anxious to burst forth and finish big a project!

    The wrecker photo is too funny! Fabric cuts depend… just really want some with no plan in mind – half yard, really like 2-3 yards, and like you, I have a weakness for charm packs.

  222. 233 patty
    September 11, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    My favorite size is 1 1/2 yards. That way I can always use it for the back of a baby quilt if I don’t need it for another project.

  223. 234 Ann P.
    September 11, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Love the pattern and fabrics. I love to buy 1 yard increments but if I can’t afford it then I will buy 1/2 yard(especially if I am buying an entire line). Thank you for everything you do.

  224. September 11, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I like big pieced and small pieced quilts–minis to full size. The tulip quilt is beautiful.

  225. 237 Nancy B
    September 12, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Hard to pick a favorite, it just depends…usually a yard, unless the bolt is about gone, then i just say, ‘I’ll take it all”! Lately am drawn to the layer cakes because the combinations are so lovely and makes for some choice in how I use it.

  229. September 12, 2013 at 7:54 am

    I tend to buy 1 yd fabrics. Then I either cut them up for quilt tops or use them as backing for baby quilts. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

    I like 5″ charms to check out the fabric and pull my favorites and then I will by a yard or half a yard of the ones I like.

  233. September 12, 2013 at 8:42 am

    I tend to buy fat quarters mostly because you can get so much variation for your money that way and they stretch so far. When I see something I particularly like I buy half yard or full yards.

  234. 246 Rebecca H.
    September 12, 2013 at 9:12 am

    thanks for the chance to win .. My stash is large, so now I buy half yards or charms to add to it. I can’t wait to get my hands on your new shirtings.

  235. 247 Denise W
    September 12, 2013 at 9:27 am

    For some reason, I always seem to buy the fabrics I really like in 3 yard increments…that just seems to be the magic number for a possible quilt back or large piecing.

  236. 248 Brenda
    September 12, 2013 at 9:38 am

    I have had to settle for 1/2 yards – bursting at the seams and this still allows me lots of variety!

  237. 249 Barbara
    September 12, 2013 at 10:54 am

    I usually buy FQs of 1/4 yd. cuts for a scrappy look. Thanks for your giveaways.

  238. September 12, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I tend to buy fabric is one yard cuts. That’s usually good. I also love charm packs, although I have just bought a few of the mini charms with the thought of making a stamp quilt. I just love the quilt your dogs are on; it’s a winner.

  239. September 12, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    I too lean towards purchasing charm bundles and half yard cuts, but when I find a good blender I like I buy 4 yards.

  242. 254 Erin
    September 12, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    If I like a whole line I love to get a fat quarter pack. If I LOVE it I pick up a yard of each just to be sure. Thanks!

    I don’t usually go for a lot of brights (the blue tan, ecru combo had been my fav in this line) until I saw the deep yellow, magenta, green and brown in these fabrics. Fabulous. I am a new quilter so not sure what to buy yet. The fat quarters are so appealing. But last time I bought I bought a yard of each print.

      I love your mini quilt! I’ve been looking for the perfect pattern to make a holiday quilt using charm packs, and I think I just found it! I’m going to upsize the block to 9″ to make the best use of the squares. Thanks so much! Oh, and my favorite cut of fabric is charm packs – I love being able to try out an entire line without a big financial commitment. I then go back and get 1/4 or 1/2 yards of my favorites from the line.

  252. September 12, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    oh you have so many beautiful fabrics out now, I will never be able to get them all! and the gorgeous quilts and projects you have created with them is wonderful! I at least try to get a charm pack so I can enjoy most of the fabrics that I love,but I have been known to hunt for months for a fabric that I missed out on; some of which I’m sorry to say I never find. Is that what they call a fabriholic? I can’t help it I just love making things! Have a great weekend and thanks again for the wonderful inspiration!

    You don’t know how many times I wished I bought more fabric than the fat quarters I use to collect. One fabric will stick out in my project so I will head back to the fabric shop only to find it was everyone else’s favorite too. Now, I will buy half yards just to make sure I have a little extra and swap any extras with other quilters or friends. Great way to build a stash…

  267. September 13, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I usually buy fat quarters or linear quarter yard cuts as I love lots of variety in my quilts. I love the tulip quilt. It reminds me of a quilt I saw at Green Gables on Prince Edward Island.

  268. 281 Sarah
    September 13, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    What wonderful quilts using your new fabric line! My favorite size of fabric to buy is 5″ charm squares. I love how it gives me a chance to have a piece of each fabric in the line, and then I can supplement with larger pieces of my favorites from the squares.
    Thanks for continuing to try to get this post done and getting past the computer obstacles!

    Lisa,
    This is a challenge for me. What size of fabric should I buy. I often buy fat quarters but this really isn’t enough to make any big project. I like scrappy so the smaller pieces work for me.

  274. 287 Michelle F.
    September 14, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    September 14, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    Half yards are a favorite, fat quarters are fun, and if I really love a fabric, I get at least 3 yards!

  276. September 14, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    If I am buying fabric for SMALL PROJECTS (pillows and embroidery) I like fat quarters. Otherwise 1/2 yard and one yard is usual. I AM getting into precuts now, charms, 5″ squares and jelly rolls.

  277. September 15, 2013 at 1:38 am

    I have always loved the size of fat quarters, but am liking charm packs recently too.

  283. September 15, 2013 at 10:35 am

    I used to buy mostly fat quarters and then was afraid to use them lest there not be enough. So now I find that half yards are much better!

  284. September 15, 2013 at 11:56 am

  285. 298 Cindy S
    September 15, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    My favorite quilts are scrap quilts. I tend to buy a yard of everything I pick out since I’m always thinking of 2 or 3 different quilts that I might use it in. If I plan to use the fabric for a background or a backing, I will buy 4-6 yards. An exception is 1930’s repro fabrics. With those I tend to go with fat quarters just because it means I can buy more of them 🙂

    I love your block, and the new fabrics from Floral Gatherings. Will you have a new book also – Floral Gatherings?
    I love to buy half yards, unless I love the fabric, I get 2 yards, and borders sometimes 3 yards.
    Right now I am collecting hexies, love these little packages. Do you think I can machine stitch them?

  289. September 15, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    I’ve come to the conclusion size matters….with the cooler weather I went to my jeans…nope the size 10 does not fit…yeeks!! I love jelly rolls and dessert rolls…I like yardage…1/2 yard cuts to 2 yard cuts. Thanks for participating in the blog hop Lisa and for the chance to win some ‘gatherings’ fabrics…luv, luv, luv your Snowman Gatherings line.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win some of our beautiful fabrics…. I am keeping at least 1 charm pack of all of your lines in my stash, “just because”! (But don’t worry … I buy more to play with!) I have one other line that I do this with, because I just can’t imagine not having them to look at and “dream design”.
