I like both types of quilts, but more of my quilts fall into the traditional category.

If I like how it looks I don't think it needs to be defined or labeled.

Evie H said...

I think I'm more of a traditional quilter, although there are some modern designs that intrigue me. Thanks for the giveaway!

Joanna said...

I definitely prefer traditional quilts and like to make them. I was just part of a qal that featured blocks that I later found in a book published in 1949. I love some of the blocks and will be looking up their history. However, I do like whimsical fabric as well as those that are classy and pretty.

Karen said...

I consider myself a traditional quilter but I love trying new things in quilting too!

Even after all these years of quilting, I am still drawn to the traditional. I enjoy looking at the "modern" quilts but I think my heart will always be with the warmer fabrics of days gone by. Love Love Love these fabrics. Thanks for the contest!

mangozz said...

I like traditional quilt designs the best but I change them up a bit adding my own special touches. Love the rich colors in that bundle.

OhioLori said...

Think I am more of a "Blend" of Traditional/Modern...kinda like a "Heinz 57" mix! lol I love old patterns...but do like changing them up a bit here & there!

Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way too! :D

Sandra Walker said...

I'm a crossover quilter! I love the traditional quilts, yet I am being more and more drawn to the modern bright colours and lots of negative space for FMQ and simplistic designs. Not totally sold on just solids though...although I have always loved Amish quilts! I also love intricate quilts like Mariner's Compass and Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Stars! I'm a conundrum huh?!

Skull said...

Traditional but with a modern context ~ mostly :)

I am more of a traditional quilter but have been enjoying looking at modern designs. I'd like to try some of them.

Dody said...

I like traditional quilts. I haven't tried to make a modern quilt,but some I've seen are based on traditional patterns.

Lewcrese Shields said...

I am more of a simple traditionalist primitive style, warm earthy colors, lots of applique type of quilter. So hard to put into just one category. I like the new fabrics, hope that a shop near me carries this line.

Michele T said...

Oooh! This collection is beautiful!!! Love the colours and especially the print with birds!!

allthingzsewn said...

I checked out her new fabric line and find it very appealing, thank you for the pattern .
I'm more of a traditional quilter. But I'm liking all the new applique variations coming around right now too. I throw a little primitive in there too.

Denise Mitchell said...

Love these prints!Thanks Denise Essex Mitchell

I would call myself a traditional quilter but once in awhile I like to make something that is alittle different from the norm. Most of the time i like to piece my blocks, but sometimes I enjoy adding some applique to myquilts.

~Laurie~ said...

Definitely a traditionalist!!

PK Sews said...

What lovely fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sherry said...

I am not a modern quilter but so like a lot of the modern fabrics. I would be in the middle I guess.

Denise Cabral said...

I sure hope I win!

scottylover said...

I am definitely a traditional quilter. I do like to work with vintage and traditional patterns.

ledamewood said...

I am more of a traditional quilter

Janie said...

I am both. I have recently (about two years now) started dabbling into the fresh modern look, but if the fabric is just right, I seem to go back to doing a traditional one.

JoyceLM said...

I'm a combination of traditional & modern when it comes to quilting. Thanks.

Renea said...

I am more of a traditional quilter but I do like to step out of the box onc in awhile. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

Lori Smanski said...

I love the look of traditional quilts and enjoy making them. To me, they speak of history, love, warmth and family!

Judy Zoll said...

I am a traditional quilter. Love the look of reproduction fabrics and classic blocks.

Kathy E. said...

I definitely have a modern slant to my quilting. I love bright colors and improv blocks and wavy, wacky lines. I love the creative side of all of it!

Bec said...

I'm definitely a traditional quilter. I have seen some modern quilts that I like, but they just aren't me. Thanks for the giveaway. I love that fabric!

teachpany said...

Fun collection. I actually prefer traditional blocks and quilting, but use lots of batiks which I think is more modern. I don't think I'm in either camp, but a combo of both. I'm actually in a challenge this month to do something modern. I need to be flexible!

Connie Cain said...

I am a newbie, so I am trying it all. :)

GranChris said...

I am both Modern and Traditional, depends on my mood. I like both.

Havplenty said...

I consider myself as quilting with more of a modern slant than traditional and more eclectic than modern. So perhaps no set category for me.

Martina said...

Probably I am more of a traditional quilter. But I just do what I love and do not really think about it.

Beth said...

I think I am somewhere in the middle. My home--and my design preference--will never be the sleek, clean aesthetic that I associate with modern designs, so in that way I am much more comfortable with the traditional look. But I appreciate the use of space in quilting and the interesting way older patterns can be enlarged or featured in new or unusual ways in modern quilts. So, I guess this is a wishy-washy answer. Is there a box to check for "a little bit of both"?

Katy M said...

I enjoy experimenting, using modern fabrics with traditional patterns and vice versa 😊

Claire Sutherland said...

I would say I veer more towards the modern. Gorgeous bundle, thanks for the chance x

I for sure am a traditonal quilter!

Helen L said...

I think I'm more of a traditional quilter, though I do love some of the modern quilts that others make. I just don't seem to make the modern ones!! I also LOVE this new fabric line: such rich colors!!

Lisa Marie said...

I don't want to be put in a certain category as a quilter. I like many different things!

Karen Fisher said...

I would say I'm a modern type quilter.

Anonymous said...

I can't say that I'm in any particular category. When I see something I like I go for it! Thanks for the chance to win ;)

I've been quilting for many years and started with traditional quilting and seem to stick with it. Though it is fun to use some of the modern print fabrics in traditional quilt patterns just to shake things up.

Margaret said...

I more traditional when it comes to making a quilt

anna brown said...

traditional quilter, But i am sticking my scissors into some modern quilting..Still up in the air about the modern movement... happyness04431@yahoo.com

JANET said...

I am mostly a Traditionalist, but I do tend to lean towards Modern at times. It just depends on what catches my fancy at the moment.

Jusmom1 said...

I think I am becoming more of a modern quilter, with a bit of traditional thrown in! Thanks for the chance to win!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I prefer the traditional style of quilting.

Gloria Cotten said...

I am definitely more modern. I love the clean and simple lines of the modern quilt movement, but I also like to take traditional designs and modernize them somehow, with fabric or layout or little changes. cotten.gloria@gmail.com

Allison CB said...

I am a more modern quilter but I like to combine it with some old fashioned fabrics!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

Love these fabrics! I'm definitely a traditional quilter (with a little bit of modern tendencies--lol!).

cjmont said...

i am a tradational quilter who is crossing the line over to more modern style.

patricia said...

I think I'm a very traditional quilter but I love the modern fabrics along with the reproductions. It's all wonderful to work with.

Mom C said...

Can I be a modern traditionalist? I use traditional blocks but modern fabric. I create my own style of quilt but I am not comfortable on the outer fringe of modern. I like pretty quilts. Thanks.

Jen Barnard said...

I don't think I fall into any category.

I love the traditional quilts and blocks!

Kathy Gorman said...

Traditional with a modern slant - this is the type I am drawn to. But I am a newbie and have yet to complete my first quilt!

Marian Allen said...

I learned as a traditional quilter, but I am certainly leaning towards modern colors and patterns

Abbigail said...

I think I am a good mixture of both! Some of my favorites are the older patterns but I do a lot of the newer patterns too!

Lee said...

Such a cute fabric line!

gmaofthree said...

I'm a beginner but tend to like vintage/traditional with a modern pop, whether with fabric or just a design twist.
