I'll look at primitive prints first.

Karen McMahon said...

I look for reproduction first, but I have many styles of fabrics in my stash.

Beth said...

I usually look for polka dots first, or solids. I have been sewing from my stash a lot, and I use Konas and polka dots to fill in, as backgrounds, and the polka dots for quilt backs for mini quilts.

Beth said...

Hmmm....the link did not work. Is this where you want to know whether I shop for primitives or novelty prints more? The answer is probably novelty prints, all told, if you count baby quilts, holiday quilts, dog quilts, etc., although I love primitive quilts and I would choose those individually over novelties.

Lin said...

I love this line of fabric. Would love to win and make something cute for Christmas!

Susan L. said...

It really depends on what I'm making when I go shopping. It could be either novelty prints or primitive prints. Lately, it would be more novelty prints, because there are so many babies due over the next few months.

Laura said...

Link did not work, but here I am. I look at novelty fabrics first. Primitive prints are not what I'm working with at this point in time.

Missy Shay said...

I think I shop both equally, it just depends on what I am doing with it.

Missy Shay said...

I forgot to leave my email! missysaprons@gmail.com in my comment before I said that I like to shop both equally.

Kathy E. said...

I shop more for novelty prints than primitive fabrics. The first thing I look for (after the sales) is the juvenile novelty prints. I sew a lot of things for babies and toddlers, so I like to keep up with what's new.

Mary Ann said...

Primitive Prints.......I used all my novelty prints to sew up pillowcases for our outreach program at the guild I belong to. survivor972002@midco.net

I look at holiday and novelty fabrics first

Mary Ann said...

I usually look for designer based fabric. I have some designers I really love their fabric. Also if there are some new designers that I have read about, I really like to look for their fabric. survivor972002@midco.net

I went to the link provided and got this message: Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist. Therefore I will answer here - primitive prints first.

I have to say that I shop for both equally!!

Michele T said...

I love Batik fabrics and am always looking for beautiful pieces to add to my stash!!

VA said...

I look to see what's new, then batiks.

Renea said...

I usually look for kits that are made up that the quilt shop has examples of and then I head over to anything Moda. Thanks for the giveaway.

lindawwww said...

I always look at the novelty prints first to see what I "need" to add to my stash.

Nancy said...

I LOVE novelty fabrics!

Janarama said...

The link you provided didn't work. Novelty prints for sure. I'm not into primitive prints.

Janarama said...

Sorry, I'm confused on where to post the answers to your two questions, so they are both being answered here. When in a quilt shop I look at the batiks first, then the novelty fabrics, then the new fabrics, and then all the rest.

teachpany said...

It depends on what I need, which is what I look for. But colors catch my eye, and I often need to search out the display. And which color varies. Sometimes it's blues, sometimes it's purples, or red. I do love novelty prints, though, especially holiday related. I love florals and batiks, too, though. Thanks for providing such cute inspiration.

MoeWest said...

I don't use too many novelties unless I'm sewing for kids.

MoeWest said...

Lately I've been attracted to the batiks.

GranChris said...

I go to Batiks, then 30's then children's for pillowcases. Last year we donated 434 pillowcases to Children's Hospital so I an always looking for children's fabric.

Stitchin At Home said...

It depends on the project, but novelty first.

ledamewood said...

I make lots of kids quilts, so I look at Novelty fabrics first, then blenders.

Danette Stankovich said...

I shop more for novelty prints. Thank you!

jec said...

i go in search for the reproductions first...not always easy to find. unfortunately, i do not have quilt shops around me and have to shop in the big box store and they just don't carry that "look". i do some online shopping but that can really push the budget. next i look for blenders. thanks for the give-a-way janet jecagain@gmail.

Vicki in MN said...

I am into panels lately so that is what I look for first and especially Christmas/winter or fall ones.

LeAnne said...

I check out the novelty prints first because I like to do kids' charity quilts.

cjmont said...

i look first by color and then print style, usually novelties especially sewing theme prints.

Sewgirl said...

I look for fun novelty prints. I then look for blenders, and then of course, the sales!!

allthingzsewn said...

I like reproductions, and I'm always looking for bright and soft colors. And yes that makes sense, to me any. I'm also a fan of small prints. I like a scrappy look to my quilts and make doll clothes with them too.

Sherry said...

I guess I would look at fabrics Designer based first and then look for fun novelty prints.

Janie said...

I start with Designer based, then if I have a project in mind I will look at traditional fabrics, batiks, then the novelty prints.

cindy m said...

I have no true preference. I love to browse and when I find a color/design that strikes my fancy, that's what I'll buy. Now these penguins are something I'd definitely want, my adult daughter has had a love of penguins since childhood!

I usually look for Kansas Troubles and then Grunges.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I like novelty prints.

Quilting Tangent said...

Of course check out the sales, then if I need a special color. Then just look around at everything and see what catches my eye.

Judy1522 said...

I tend to go more for the novelty prints

Kathy said...

my answer to both questions is Novelty - love the variety they offer - and then batiks

Denise Losczyk said...

I'm tempted by novelty prints, but I usually choose Batiks or blenders to use in my projects. All fabric is fair game, though, if I love I will purchase it and find a way to use it!

JANET said...

It depends on what I am making. I first look for color, then print (small, big), then I decide if the fabric theme will work with what I am making.

scottylover said...

I would look at the novelty prints first. I always seem to find something that makes me smile in them.

scottylover said...

I look for 30s repros first, then whatever I cam in the store for! :)

Lisa Marie said...

I love novelty prints and shop for them often! I also like blenders, batiks, modern prints, etc. Not a fan of primitives.

Marie Chat said...

I look for reproduction first, then what's new.

Mom C said...

I look for novelty prints when I know I'm sewing for my grandkids and other younger children. These are darling. Thanks.

Amanda Wood said...

I enjoy solid colors or subtle patterns, and batiks are lovely!

Rosa said...

I love to play with solids and small prints.
