We LOVE YOU Giveaway



GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

Thanks for all of the love that you gave us yesterday! We loved reading all of the comments and it is fun for us to read about your likes and dislikes. The wide range and sometimes polar opposite opinions amazed us. For example, some loved lime green whereas others were not so keen on it. We are sure that today's answers will provide an equally interesting read.

Today's featured fabric to give away is the ... and Sew On Line. Dress forms, scissors, and sewing machines are some of the adorable elements in this collection for sewing enthusiasts.


Here's a sampling of the prints in this fun collection. The rest of the line is featured on the Henry Glass website here and the free project downloads accompanying the line are fun.

 

Yesterday it was about color. Today, we'd like to know what sort of prints you like. Chevrons, flowers and woodland critters like owls have been very popular in the past few years. What sort of prints would you like to see more of? Which prints would you like to see less of?  Graphics, textures and plaids? Kids novelty? Seasonal collections like Christmas? 

Remember, there is no right or wrong answer. Just leave your answer here on the blog or on Facebook. We will select a winner of the bundle of fabric. [Selection is random and the fabric is our choice.] Giveaway ends Sunday, February 16th at midnight.

Good luck!

I like a variety of prints, but it depends on the print. For example, I love some florals and dislike others.

Generally I like geomentric and graphic prints, especially dots.

I love Christmas prints, but prefer them to be in traditional colors.

I find texture type prints to be really useful.

JoyceLM said...

I love polka dots, especially the random kind. I like diagonal stripes (great for bindings), small & medium flower prints. Thanks.

Joanna said...

I love seasonal prints so keep them coming. I use florals often, love plaids and dots, and dislike stripes. So I would like to see fewer stripes.

almstreet said...

I love a modern floral print and I'm also really into botanicals right now.

Cecilia said...

I like bias stripes, small color and white stripes, and textured solids.

Lisa Marie said...

Lately I like mostly modern prints. Especially nature inspired prints like leaves, trees, and birds. I like geometrics, and I love dots and swirls! And some novelty prints. I'm also a sucker for children's prints, particularly those with cute animals. Although I love plenty of designs that are directional, I find that scatter prints are easier to use. I don't have any interest in civil war prints or 30's prints or anything too frilly.

Karens Quilts, Crows and Cardinals said...

I love items of nature... Birds, owls, trees, leaves, but with coordinating dimensional or geometric prints . I'm a little partial to Cardinals ;) Thanks for the great giveaway!

Crickets Corner said...

I love geometrics, plaids and winter prints, not Christmas but winter. I'd like to see more of those and less of prints that all run together and make it hard to see what prints are in the pattern.

Dee D said...

This is beautiful fabric! I would like to see some beautiful medium sized flower prints.

JD said...

I love texture, chevrons, plaids, but I have a hard time using plaids.

Cheryl said...

I would love more text prints, stash building fabric like prints that read solid but have the texture look and modern geometries. Mrscwatson81(at)hotmail(dot)com

Debbie Rogowski said...

I'd love fabrics that are tossed, a pattern that is ok in any direction. Or packed that has lots of a design packed into the area. I'm usually not fond of pots and pans or cups and saucers. Beats me why I don't mind forks and knives and spoons though lol. I so DISLIKE chevrons, even before they became popular. Poor Charlie Brown thinks everyone is wearing his shirts.

Becky Rabalais said...

I'd like to see more fabric with libraries, books, children reading. I'm not so fond of chevrons even though they are hugely popular. Thanks for this fun giveaway!

Janet Monahan said...

I would love more polka dots and asymmetrical geometric prints. Also, I think its time for the paisley to make a new updated, modern return!

LisaT said...

A combination of prints some with florals and others with stripes where the stripe can enhance a quilt design - I really don't prefer the gold laced shiny prints and seems like much of the striped fabrics have it

susan said...

I love wildlife prints, deer, fox, raccoons, birds are my favorite, butterflies, how about ground hogs :) Let me say I could never get enough Christmas prints, but especially like the vintage look. Also how about Vintage kitchen..woot woot.

Michele T said...

I love teeny flowers, polka dots, and novelty fabrics. I am not keen on loud graphic patterns in clashing colours. Thanks for the chance!!

susan said...

Would love to see more Vintage styles. Also similar to barkcloth prints. Make it vintage, make me happy. :)

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I live a variety of prints but prefer them on the small to medium size. Florals, geo's, dots, graphics, stripes, text.

susan said...

Vintage reprints of any style!

Vicki H said...

I'd like to see birds. I love geometrics, dots and prints that can act as solids.

sew8500 said...

Love all things yellow, orange, and red except large polka dots. Good rust shades, browns, and tans are also helpful.

Do not like any plaids at all.

I also like deep greens and blues, though I have no personal use for them.

GranChris said...

I say stripes and dots. You never have enough of either.

chefpa said...

I cannot get enough dots...big dots, small dots, whatever!

Margaret said...

I love flowers. I also love polka dots and stripes. I think they all go together. Flowers are really starting to come back in I think. I love this print to. There is no right or wrong fabric always a design for each fabric,

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I love stripes--especially for sashings,inner borders and binding--so fun!!

Cowtown Quilts said...

Linda Lum DeBono made a pattern for a babushka doll ornament. I'd like to see her make fabric from this pattern with different babushka dolls all over it and neutrals to go with it.

Also, I am really into textures lately, so I'd like to see more textures.

Pauline Gudas said...

I would love to see more kitchen type prints. I also would love more snowmen prints for Christmas/winter

Denise Mitchell said...

I would like to see more graphic or geometric prints . I don't see fabric that I would say I would want to see less of.
I like kids novelty prints and for Christmas fabric more traditional colors.

Tam said...

Textures that can be used for fur, geometrics,and non-directional graphics please.

Lynda said...

I am currently in the "Modern" quilt stage, so I love the textures, graphics, etc., but most importantly, I love bright colors - if florals are a must, let them be graphic and saturated

Gill said...

I love geometric and text prints!

Diane H said...

I like dots, small florals and strips. Not loving chevrons.

Lesley said...

I love small prints, reflective of years gone by, with lots of blacks, blues, reds, and creams.

Donna said...

Should the pattern by paisley I am in love! Floral fabric always catches my eye and I am beyond fond of novelty prints with cats or owls.

msmargie2 said...

I'd like to see more small whimsical novelty prints with a light background, nothing directional tho. Fabric with writing on it in English,children dressed in native clothing, chickens, sewing notions, computers/computer parts/computer verbage for the computer geeks in our lives. :)

teachpany said...

I love this collection. I adore floral prints and coordinates. There are times, though, for novelty and others. I tend not to use stripes often, unless I know they will work with the design, or use them in binding. Otherwise, they make me dizzy. Tired of owls, but I know others who adore them. I'm just glad there is a variety to please everyone.

PK Sews said...

I love the sewing theme prints that you are featuring today! I also like texts, fairies, birds, flowers, and leaves. I have less interest in abstract graphics and holiday prints. Thanks for the fun!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

More nature/bird prints in a smaller scale.. and I always need dots and stripes! Less of the non-traditional Christmas and holiday prints. ~they are too trendy. Thanks for the fun!

Barb N said...

I am always on the lookout for great Christmas fabrics but there was not a lot of selection this past year.

barbara woods said...

i love all fabric except woodgrain

DebraKay Neiman said...

I love fabrics with text on them...like letters, sayings/quotes or just like script letters and sewing theme fabric. Also love red white and black on quilts. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Tabitha Keener said...

I'm very new but I started out loving the bright whimsical fabric in bright colors of the rainbow. Prints or solids are great, but prints definitely are best. Now I seem to be crushing on soft flowers in light pinks and blues. I tend to steer clear of depressing fabric that is too dark or not a lot of color. The black white and red combo is electric and I love the dressforms! I do have to say that what I call depressing in fabric colors, I've seen successfully used in some beautiful samplers, and I may even make one! Thanks

Kris said...

VW's cars or vans!

Sunnybec said...

I like novelty fabrics about sewing and very shabby chic fabrics. Not keen on geometric or chevrons.

scottylover said...

I love 30s repros and soft pastel florals. I am not a big fan of the novelty prints, such as mustaches, muscle cars, safari animals etc.

Thanks for asking! It's nice to share!

Lee said...

Geometrics, small prints and I love seasonal and I don't think there is enough plaid! thanks !

Barb said...

I love floral prints-big and small. Leaf prints also catch my eye. Graphic prints, stripes and plaids, too. I am getting tired of all the cutesy collections. I know we need designs for children, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed.

Julie said...

Love the florals and nature prints.

Joan and Kevin said...

I love it all! That is why I have sooooo much
fabric! Thanks!

Helen L said...

I love dots (small white or cream on a colored background so it can be used as a companion to the focal prints), I love birds, and light colored textured prints that can be used as backgrounds. Bias stripes are great too, and hard to find. Also, I've been looking for a pinball machine print to make a shirt for my hubby, but can't find it anywhere!! It maybe could be included in a line that had all kinds of male items (cars, trains, pinball machines, antique toys or something along those lines.) Thanks for listening!!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

Farm Quilter said...

Graphic, geometric prints, textures and text of all sorts. There are a zillion flower, 30s repro, Civil War and novelty prints and I am bored with them. These questions have been fun - thanks for asking!

Mia's Cottage said...

Polka dots are what I'm hooked on lately..
Donna

Betsy said...

I love all prints and I like to combine them of course with vibrant solids.

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

I love, and would love to see more of, vintage designs (old clock faces, cameras etc) shabby chic and text. Don't care for prints that are too cute that only work for small children.

Denise Cabral said...

I love floral and birds. Traditional designs are the most to my liking! I am not too fond of some of the more modern prints and patterns. I also love tone on tone prints!

Sheila said...

I love fabrics with words and I would love to see more plaids , they seem to have disappeared lately .

marie said...

I love stripes to use as binding. Small prints that 'read' as solids are my choice.

Lisa Cox said...

I love tiny floral prints, nature inspired prints like leaf prints, etc.

Jo said...

I would love to see more classic motorcycle prints and related items such as road maps flames highway signs. No skulls though it is just not my thing, also music prints.

Barbara Pricola said...

I love floral prints, whimsical prints, bright prints, etc. etc.

Paulette Rea said...

My very,very favorite is the romantic look...Florals, checks, stripes, dots etc.... But I love all the colors...and all the designs... I can make a beautiful quilt with any fabric I have... there is no such thing as a bad quilt!

Kathie said...

I'd like to see more paisley. I also usually like a small print with leaves

PugMom said...

Henry Glass, I love it all. I do need some PUG fabric though....

Lois said...

I love that fabric set. I have been hooked on circle, dots and swirly prints for a few years now. Still going strong... especially polka dots!

Kaye M. tkmattson@hotmail.com said...

I like the chevron fabrics and other geometric designs. I've always loved paisley and I'm weary of polka dots.

Connie Cain said...

Large flowery prints are not for me, but I love graphics and small prints. :)

carolann said...

I like florals, stripes, dots, nature prints and whimsical fabrics. carolann427@aol.com

ledamewood said...

I'd like to see more prints like shirtings and script prints. I'd like to see less of holiday focus prints.

Cheryl said...

Like reproduction, thirties, florals, novelty(cats), checks, dots, stripes,.....There is not much that I don't like.

NancyL said...

I love polka dots and diagonal stripes; but also like some florals and chevrons, not really a fan of woodland animals. Basic solids/textures are always useful.

NancyL said...

I like polka dots and diagonal stripes; not a fan of woodland animals. Chevrons and textured solids are great basics, and I like most florals.

Kathy H said...

I would like to see more textures and I always enjoy Christmas prints and novelties.

Jeanne Gwin said...

I look for variety when I shop. Not so crazy for chevons, do like bias stripes, love blenders. Especially hoping someone comes through with what I call "ice blue", it is a silvery blue 'almost in motion' color that I have been hunting for years. Thanks

Podunk Pretties said...

I'm a sucker for plaids and calicos so I'd love to see a whole line of plaids.

Heidi said...

I love florals for most quilts. I also love specialty prints with animals to make personalized quilts or garments. Stripes are an accent. Recently I rediscovered solids .... so please ask us again in 6 months :)

Ellee said...

My favorite prints are flowers, cats, hearts, and butterflies. My least favorite are rigidly lined up polka dots. Randomly spaced and/or sized polka dots are great. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

delaineelliott said...

I love smaller floral prints and small overall designs. And I love anything Christmas. Would like to see more of these. Thanks!

Pat S. said...

I like clean prints that aren't too busy. One of my favorite prints are polka dots. Thanks sew much for this chance to win!

Bonnie58 said...

textures are nice and bright clean colours with small prints. Thanks so much for sharing

JD said...

I love textures, chevrons and plaids. I am not sure how to use plaids.

KaHolly said...

I've certainly had enough owls! I'd like to see more botanicals.

Deb said...

I love and collect stripes. Florals, botanicals, and textured solids are also favorites of mine.

Deb G. in VA said...

I like brights, dots and stripes. I've had a hard time finding whites/creams for background fabric that have the design woven in the fabric, not stamped on top. I like to applique and it is hard to sew thru fabric with a heavy design stamped on it. Thanks for the giveaway!

Janie said...

I love a variety of prints, especially geometric as long as the colors catch my eye. There are some colors I just cannot work with. Thanks for the giveaway.

Renea said...

Oh Wow. Love this fabric. I had not seen it before. Not sure what prints I would like to see more of. I am really into stripes and dots lately. Love the looks in a quilt. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Joan said...

I love small florals and polka dots and I like stripes for sashings. I totally love Christmas prints. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

Jan said...

I'm very attracted to fabric with text in the design.

Nicole said...

Pop culture/current novelty.....new colour combinations....

Melissa Miller said...

I like 1930s repros, vintage and retro prints especially.

Mary Jane Link said...

I would love to see more "antique Christmas" designs and for my part have seen enough "textures"

Thank you

Mary Jane Link said...

I would like to seen more of an antique style Christmas prints and for my part have seen enough of "textures"
Thank you

Donna W said...

Small overall designs.

Abbigail said...

I like the floral, sewing themed, small prints,and prints to use in landscapes like rocks and wood, basket weaves. I don't usually buy large floral, stripes, very modern fabrics.

Lori said...

I like anything primitive looking and deep rich colors. Thank you for the giveway!

sofen said...

I like batiks, and modern prints. And novelty.

Mara said...

I love a line that gives me novelty fussy cut fabric along with a few blenders, tone on tone fabrics to match.

Brenda said...

I like Christmas prints, dots and stripes. I have not really a fan of neon prints.

AngieSue said...

I'm not a chevron fan - but I love polka dots (all sizes, shapes, and colors).

Shauna said...

i love dots, small medium and large. I love tone on tone prints that read as a solid from a distance but look cook up close

dortha said...

I love dots. Love black and red together.

Melissa Greenfield said...

Love the red,black, gray combo.

Sewing Mom said...

LOVE that bundle...so cute! I really like geometric fabrics...lines, dots, etc. I think that they can be very modern and appealing. Thanks for a lovely giveaway!

Carrie P. said...

I would love to see more text prints and toile.

Sherry said...

I love prints with flowers and dots and plaids are great too. I am always changing my "favorite's" as I see new and modern fabrics. Novelty prints are always great fun to sew with.

Joan H. said...

I love floral prints in delicate pastel colors. Don't like large gaudy florals. Also like small animal prints . Dislike large modern designs.

LJ said...

Flowers usually grab my interest right up front but I do like geometric shapes especially when the color palette is limited. Tone on Tone prints in text are also neat.

Teckla Buller said...

I'm hooked on flowers! All kinds, but I like softer colors the most. I've never been a personal fan of geometrics which is maybe one of the reasons I'm not as fond of modern quilts. Being unique is what makes the world so interesting!

hafza said...

I love to see more graphics prints and see less of plaids. Kids novelty prints will never bore me:)
