This little quilt is called Golden Rule in the book, (Be Kind on our website, oops) It takes 8 Fat quarters plus the border fabric. The quilt and the appliques are flannel and the whole quilt is just so fun and easy to stitch. It ca be stitched by hand or machine AND if you are allergic to wool try using flannel like I did here…you will have to eliminate the one wool piece because I did use wool strips for the stems and vines but they could easily be made out of cotton if you wish; click the button below if you want to purchase a kit for this project, if you win our Friday quilt give-away we will refund your purchase! We have the book and kit at a special price on the website for this through the weekend! We have limited number of kits because this flannel is so popular it is almost sold out!

I usually like fat quarters, but I do have a few layer cakes on hand.
I usually purchase 1 yard, but lately I’ve been buying stripes to use for bindings–so if I see something I think I can use a lot, I’ll buy 3-4 yards so I have it on hand. My closest fabric store is 35 miles away so I hate having to run to the store every time I need something.
Unless I have a specific project in mind I generally will go with fat quarters!

I buy 1/2 yards at least unless I really love the fabric then it is more.
I “collect” fat quarters, but I buy a yard or more of fabrics that I just gotta have! The fabric often justifies the search for just the right pattern. Your patterns call to me, and then the fabric selection follows.
Hey there!! I collect fat quarters! Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!!
I used to buy lots of fat quarters now I tend to go with 1/2 yard or bigger!

I have a fabric habit that has me buying fat quarters half yards and even enough for backs I regret not doing twilight garden and love your new. Pattern and book Would love to put this in my kitchen wish me luck

Half yard bundles when I can afford them, when things a tight I just look and drool. lol
I do buy fat quarters but usually 1-3 yards depending on how much I love the fabrics. I do love your flannels and have made nearly all your pillows.

For the “gotta have its”, I buy at least a yard. I would say my usual is half yard. Fat quarters are the most fun though to grab and go (and stack together in my stash).

I normally purchase a fat quarter, unless it’s a “must-have” and then it’s a half,or whole, yard.
I normally buy at least a yard. I have bought and have several charm packs though.
First I buy layer cakes and sometimes jelly rolls. This is when I “must have” at least a little bit of a new fabric collection but don’t yet know what I’m going to do with it. But when a new fabric collection is introduced and I simply “can’t live without it,” I buy the fat quarter collection. This happened when you came out with INDIGO GATHERINGS … I ordered TWO fat quarter collections from YOU of this fabric! I have a pretty good idea which quilt I’m going to make from it.
I love fat quarters as I usually order a stack so I get the whole color way. Love your work and congratulations on your book.
I usually purchase at least 3 yards of a fabric…that way I always have enough for borders cut on the lengthwise grain. As I do not live near any local quilt shops and have to travel at least an hour to buy fabric it makes sense to me that I get a larger amount in case I cannot find the same fabric on my next trip to the shop. I do love fat quarters and pre-cuts but 3 yards is my go-to preference. Thanks so much for a chance to win….
I purchase some fat quarters but most often several yards if buying cottons. For wools- usually bundles and yardage for basic colors. Thanks for the chance.

I love fat quarter bundles but if I really love it I will get a yard and usually I don’t have any plans for it….just love the fabric! Thank you for the chance to win!
I usually buy half yard cuts or fat quarters – I love your quilt and congratulations for it being on the cover!!
I usually buy 2 yards only because every time I buy less, I need more! Notice I said NEED – not WANT – well maybe WANT is more appropriate!
Depends on the project. That said, I have a lot of projects in my stash of fat quarters and yardage! I could not pass up the Indigo Blues collection and it does not have a project yet… Love your fabrics.
I usually buy fat quarter collections and go from there.
I usually buy 1/2 yard pieces of fabric that I simply can’t resist!
Oh Lisa! What a cute book to use all my “fats”! I usually buy fat quarters or half yard cuts as my stitch group gives “the Birthday Girl” a fat quarter to celebrate her big day! With the half yards, I get to keep a fat quarter too! BTW, when the front of the book popped up, I immediately went to the lower corner one even before I knew it was yours!
Another awesome book by Moda I bet!
What size? Hmmm, I used to buy fat quarters, and have s LOT of them. In the last few years I’ve upped my game. If I like it I buy a yard, if I really like it I buy 3 yards!!😱. I could really use a good fat quarter book!

I like to buy fat quarters to build up my fabric stash. I especially love reproduction prints and like my quilts very scrappy. Having a lot of fat quarters to choose from makes my quilts very scrappy and me very happy!!!! Happy Friday!
Fat Quarter and 1/2 yd if I really love it.
I used to do fat quarters and 1/4 yards and still do sometimes. But now I tend to get 1/2 yards! Collecting fabric is so much FUN!
If love the fabric and don’t have any plans at this time for its use, I will purchase at 1 1/4 yd, that way I can “play” with the quarter yard on a smaller project saving the yard of fabric for another project. I usually look for quilt backings when fabrics on sale at LQS

I love fat quarters stacks! There is something so tactile having all the lovely colors and patterns. Plus it is a fantastic way to develop “color” sense for planning a quilt.
Lately it has been 1 yard cuts if the fabric really speaks to me, otherwise FQ’s.

Just love all your work!! I have a tendency to buy1 yard cuts of any fabric that I don’t have an immediate plan for. You never know how much you’ll need!
When I buy fabric just to have on hand (not for a specific purpose), I generally buy fat quarters. Recently, however, I heard Bonnie Hunter talk about buying 1/3 yard cuts, as she finds them so much more usable, and only a dollar or so more than a fat quarter. That makes a lot of sense to me, and that is what I will do in the future.
I usually buy fat quarters or layer cakes. Love your pattern. It is beautiful!
my go-to fabric size is yardage. i wash my fabric before using and yardage is easier. plus i’m not limited to a smaller size. fat quarters are my 2nd choice, although i don’t have many fat quarters.
I’m a fat quarter kind of girl but if a fabric speaks to me I’ll get a couple of yards lol.
I usually buy half to full/multiple yards. I rarely buy fat quarters because if i like a fabric, I gotta have enough to fondle plus use in a project. I can so easily see me making the Be Kind one in any number of your cotton prints. No matter the fabric, it will be fabulous for a nice wall hanging. Thanks so much for the great give away offer.
That book looks exciting. I usually buy 1/2 yard but if I love it one yard.

I usually by 1 1/2 yards of a fabric if I am not sure what I want to make yet.

I generally buy at least a 1 yd cut, if I love it I will buy 2 or 3 yards.
I usually buy fat quarters or half yards when fat quarters are not available. Thank you for this opportunity.

I am currently using my Indigo Gatherings and my Urban Farmhouse Gatherings for the Moda BH3.
In the past I collected fat quarters. Now I like a scrapper look so am getting more layer cakes.

Layer cakes, jelly rolls seem to be my first choice. If not available I get 3 yards of each fabric because heaven forbid I should be short on one. 😂
I usually collect 1/3 yards of fabric when I am buying with nothing special in mind. I can cut 2 and 1/2 inch strips from that and still have some leftover for appliqué or blocks in different sizes. I love the book and would be excited to win it.
Thanks for your inspiration and generosity.

I usually buy fat quarters. I like that you can get a selection of fabrics then you can just pick up extra yardage for borders & backs.
I like to buy half yard that way I am sure I have enough.
Enjoy your blog so much and your books. I am a beginner so I don’t have many fat quarters but am acquiring them at a steady rate😳. Would love to try my hand at wool and flannel.

I used to buy fat quarters and still do buy many. Lately though, I have purchased a few more half yard pieces. Now I need to use all the fabric I have collected.
I buy yardage. I just may use a piece of it in a different project, too.
I buy fat quarters usually when there is a sale. I buy in color groups usually. Since I do machine appliqué, I always have a source for my designs. Also, we have fat quarter drawings at our guild so I’m able to donate to the cause.
I buy a fat quarter if I like it I like to buy fat quarter collections. If I buy yardage, it is usually two yards. When I see fabric suitable for backgrounds, it is four plus yards. I also buy kits if the pattern I like calls for a lot of different fabrics. It would be wonderful to win. Barbara

I buy a yard.
I have been collecting coordinating fat quarters, I am not sure when I will have “enough”. I love, love, love charm packs.

If it is something I really like or a good blender I buy 2 yards. I also buy a lot of Jelly Rolls if it is a line I really like.
Good morning, Lisa. My go to fabric would probably be yardage. But as I am an addict precuts find their way to my stash often, especially with wools and wool flannel as I use smaller sizes of those.
Hi Lisa! Thanks for the opportunity. I usually buy 1/3 or 1/2 yard cuts of fabric when stash building. If I find a good background fabric with possibilities I grab a few yards. If a fabric really appeals to me I will buy a yard. Been to your shop and love the selection.

My go-to fabric size to collect is fat quarter bundles.
I collect it all!! Lol!! My go to is actually fat quarter bundles! I can’t have too many! I do like precuts as well! Just makes it nice to get a whole collection and know you can make something!
Hi Lisa: I always buy with more than one project in mine. I will normally purchase 2 1/2 yards at a time. This gives me leftovers for other projects such as a purse or tote bag. It challenges me to use the extra fabrics with what I have on hand.
If I don’t have a particular pattern in mind I purchase fat quarters. Fat quarters are a great way to mix up a collection.
I typically buy morefat quarters. I do a lot of hand applique and fat quarters give me a bigger variety to choose from.

If I like a grouping of fabrics, I will buy the entire bundle, especially at shows. Same at my local store. I definitely have a fabric addiction.

Based on my fabric stash, I should live to 120!

I am a fabric collector. I have many fat quarters in many colour ways. Most times I purchase 1 meter of fabric when on sale. Would love to own your book.
I love fabric- buy alot of scrap bags for the treasures inside. Will buy 3 yd lengths of the one that call my name. Enjoy your collecting and sewing
Half yards to stash build. Four to five yards for backgrounds. Two and a half yards for borders.
If I really really love the fabric 2 yards, and figure later what to do with it.
if I’m not making a project, I like to collect the mini charms. I get to experience so many fabric lines!
I like to have lots of fat quarters in cottons on hand and wool charms.
I usually buy fabric in 1/2 yards, but I also love fat quarter and fat eight bundles.
I love fat quarter bundles!!!! I have lots of them! 🤦🏼♀️
I enjoy purchasing coordinations of fat quarters. When you use and cut fats quarters it’s possible to plan more than one quilt with what’s left after your first cut depending on your first pattern.
I tend to buy 1/2 yards but if I love the fabric I might buy 3 yards. A special fabric seems to find its way into more than one quilt.
Thanks for the chance to win! I buy fat quarters.
If I love the fabric and it can be a background I buy 4 yards. If I love it and not a background I buy 2 yards.
Oh, I can’t forget the times I buy fabric twice when I forget I already purchased the fabric. I figure I must really love it.
I usually get a collection of fat quarters but I will get a yard if I want a possible main print
I buy everything. I have so much material as I have been quilting for 44 years so I usually gather what I have and then fill in with whatever is needed to finish the quilt. Usually it is the backing.
Love fat quarter packs!
Hello. I usually buy fat quarters unless I’m totally in love with one fabric or particular color. Then I buy yardage.
I collect all size fabrics in different patterns. As I’ve been a quilter for twenty years I’ve become more purposeful in collecting.
1/2 yard to a full yard depending on color, pattern and the vision I see for it’s future.
I love scrappy quilts so fat quarters and 1/2 yard cuts are what I usually go for. If a great large scale print is on sale, I’ll buy 4-6 yards for backings.
I buy lots of fat quarter towers… lots…. and why don’t I use them up? Lack of fq friendly patterns (that I like), so this book… Would be great!
Future purchases …. I’m going with five yard cuts of neutrals… so I have backgrounds for those fqs!
I have learned over the years that if I see a fabric I must have, I buy at least a yard. If I really love it, I might check out how much is left on the bolt!
I like to buy fat quarter bundles so I have coordinating fabrics to work with but I also buy larger quantities of favorite fabrics – 1 yd or 1/2 yd cuts. You can never have too much fabric🥰
Fats quarters are my usual purchase because they are so versatile but I also will buy six yards of a fabric I absolutely love because you can never have enough! LOL
Definitely a fat quarter…just enough to play with and fun to mix a pallet with other of its kind ;o)
Usually 1/2 yards…but I buy it all. Trying to shop out of my stash lately! 😄
I typically buy a yard of fabric I like. Sometimes I purchase fat quarters if I’m trying to get a coordinated line of fabric.
I may be a little obsessed with fat quarters…they are like eye candy – just have to have them!!!!
I usually buy yardage which gives me more options. Love your website!
Typically fat quarters but a lot of times half yards. Thanks for the giveaway! Have a great day!
half yards if it’s flannel, otherwise lately, I am buying lots of kits to get me going faster! Wool is just like candy. Any amount will do!
If the fabric is full price I get .75 yd, if I love it I get 1.5 yds. Sale fabric could put me in a more carefree spending mindset.
Yes, I collect fabric from mini charms to yardage, for planned projects or just maybe projects. So my purchases vary. I some of it all. LOL
Fat Quarter’s are my favorite size! Enough to play around with for scrap look!
I buy a lot of charm packs and fat quarters. I make scrap quilts, so larger size pieces overwhelm me. I even use FQs to back my scrappy quilts sometimes.
When I first began quilting I collected fat quarters to build my stash. I often still do that but have a better idea of what I’m looking for and buy accordingly.
If I love the fabric, I buy at least a yard otherwise I purchase fat quarters.
I collect all shapes and sizes! I have a hard time going to the store (physical or online) without coming home with something! Lately, I’ve been filling my drawers with wool! And no matter how many pieces I have – it seems that I always need another to get just the right “shade”…
I like buying half yards. Fat quarters usually aren’t quite enough.
I collect FQs of some lines I just can’t live without, but I also will do 2 to 4 yards if I am thinking of a background. I will go between 4 or 5+ for backings. I like unusual backings…so if I see one and it is in my color wave or I know of a specific quilt…I buy it. LOL sounds like I buy everything. This is how I shop!
I used to collect 1 yard amounts of the pieces of a coll that I liked, but than ran short. So now I buy 1 1/2 yards of a couple of main pieces and a couple of 1 yard amounts.
I seem to be buying quite a few layer cakes and charm packs lately, but have a bazillion fat quarters, so I am obviously always picking them up as well. Thanks for the great giveaway!
I buy fat quaters, a lot , and from the ones that I really, really love I buy yardage, mostly two or three metres
I usually buy half yards–a fat quarter just isn’t enough!
If I am mail ordering I usually get a fat quarter tower. In the shop I select my favorites and get half yards and yards!
I usually buy a fat quarter for an ongoing project, otherwise 1/2 yards of color and 2-3 yards of neutrals. I am still working on MIL and Mom’s stashes. A version of your Twilight Garden was used as the back drop for our State Make It With Wool style show last fall. It is exquisite!
I usually get half to one yard cuts. I’m always worried I won’t have enough if I get less.
This is a hard one for me, Lisa. Is “it depends” an answer? Sometimes its fat quarters, but usually larger. If I have a project in mind it is always at least a yard, but then sometimes I buy 3. Oh well. Now you know why “it depends” fits me!! Sorry I’m not very helpful, but I do love your Be Kind quilt.
I love scrap quilts and usually buy fat quarters.
I typically collect 1/2 yards.
I have lots of collections of fat quarters – they just suck me in with the coordinating fabrics, colors, and designs. I do have problems, though, when it comes time for a border or back but I’m working on collecting larger cuts now (always!). I love to just have them piled up and enjoy looking at them!!
I think you used block 3 for your mini quilt. I use to buy fat quarters when I started quilting, but now purchase yardage, as you never know how much you will need.
I purchase 1/2 yard cuts and if I really like a pattern, I purchase 2-3 yards. 🙂
Lately charm packs! But I also collect FQs & all other precuts. Someday I’ll start using them. LOL!
I usually buy fat quarters. If it’s a fabric I can’t live without I will buy yardage.
I find that more and more I am making smaller blocks, like 3 and 4 inch, so
I have started to collect fat eights. I haven’t found a civil war fabric that I don’t like
Thanks for the chance to win.
I usually collect a half yard cut. Or if it’s a collection that I really like but don’t have a project for it yet I like to buy a layer cake. Congratulations on another beautiful quilt.
If I see something I really love, I buy 5 yards because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever! Otherwise, I’ll buy half yards or one yard cuts. I also buy layer cakes and jelly rolls.
I wish it was half yards, but usually fat quarters. Thanks for the chance.
One yard is my go to, but it always leaves me wanting more!
When shopping, I usually buy yardage. I buy 1/2 yard, one yard or 3 yard, depending upon whether I plan to use it as a filler, background or backing.
Fat quarters bundles and half yards. I need this book to start using my stash right now!!!! Thank you!
I tend to purchase precuts and fat quarters.
I usually buy 1/4 or 1/2 yards because my stash is already runneth over. Need to stash bust!
I usually buy one yard pieces unless I want to use the fabric for borders
I typically buy a 1/2 yard of fabric that I come across. But like yesterday I found a fabric I see using in a future UFO I bought 1 yard. Lisa one of my favorite songs is Be humble and Kind so this wall hanging had special meaning to me
I tend to collect fat quarters!
It depends on the fabric. More often than fat quarters, I’ll buy quarter yards or half yards of something I just like, or a yard of a polka dot that I know I’ll use over and over.
I usually buy one yard of fabric I just have to have. Then when I get home, I wish I had bought more!
I collect fat quarters.
Layer cakes! They’re very user friendly.
I buy at least 1 FQ bundle then 1 1/2 to 6 yards of my favorites in each bundle. If I don’t buy the whole bundle then I buy 3 yards of my favorite. 50% of the time I don’t have an immediate plan but know I will.
I can’t say that I have a go to, I love them all! I buy fat quarters, half yards, full yards, and if I REALLY LOVE it, I buy 2-4 yards. 😊
I am currently addicted to charm packs. Especially PG charms as I can get a varied collection by color or category, like shirting. I love small piece scrap quilts and these give me a great variety
I usually collect 1/2 yards of fabric when I buy it.
How fun is this One!
I do collect Fat Qtr! Been doing it for yrs…
When I buy yardage it is usually 1-2 yds depending on how much I love it.
Thanks for all the wonderful things you bring to us!!
I buy precuts, fat quarters and yardage. I just buy fabric! Lots of fabric!
I used to buy yard pieces for my stash. I have moved to half yards. I still buy 3 yards if a really like it and 6 yards if I LOVE it.
I usually buy 1 yard pieces, sometimes 3yds. if I really like it and might use it for borders on a quilt.
I tend to buy fat quarters. Lots of patterns just use Fat QTRS. If it is a fabric I LOVE I will move up to a 1/2 yard or in cases 1 yard. Love your quilt Lisa! Congrats on the cover!
Gosh! I collect/buy different sizes. If I love the line then I usually buy the FQ bundle, sometimes the HY bundle. I also love charm packs and the mini charms for my EPP projects.
I often buy 3 yards of a fabric I love. I also buy half yards and cut them into SQs. that way I can share with a friend!
I still buy fat quarters, especially If they are in a bundle that I can’t resist. But more and more, I’m buying 1/3 yards. I like to do scrappy quilts and this seems to be a good solution for me.
Fat quarters and charm packs are my usual go to sizes, but fabric on any size is great!
I typically buy yardage and if I do buy FQ, it is usually a in a set of anywhere from 4 to 40. LOL. Thanks. I Love this pattern
I do buy fat quarter bundles of lines that I like but I also buy yardage it just depends on what I envision myself making
I like to buy a collection of fabrics, so I usually buy fat quarters!
I used to buy fat quarters but now, if I really like a fabric, I will invest in at least a half yard..
I usually buy 1/2 yard, or a yard depending on what I think I might use for. If I love it….3 yards.
Congratulations on having your beautiful little quilt featured on the cover of the book. I usually buy by the yard, depending on the project I am working on.
