  1. There are so many talented fabrid designers and so many beautiful collections. I do like Darlene Zimmerman’s designs because of the feed sack look they have and the 30’s colors.

  2. i was feeling sorry for my self because i will miss festival for the first time in over 20 years because of back surgery; the name of this giveaway made me smile even if i don’t win anything, at least i have that

  3. I like too many different designers to pick just one. I like reproduction and batik fabrics, but my collections include many designers!

  4. hi Pat Sloan, i was hoping i would get a chance to see my favorite fabric designer in houston.

  5. I don’t have a favorite designer. However, I do love softly printed fabrics, monochromatics, and bright primary colors presented boldly. I love the feel of a fabric even more, so don’t print on crappy fabrics!

  6. That’s a really difficult question! There are so many amazing designers. I’m gonna have to think on that one – no coffee yet and my mind is totally blank. I can’t think of anyone’s name. I’ll be back

    1. That’s a really difficult question! There are so many amazing designers. I’m gonna have to think on that one – no coffee yet and my mind is totally blank. I can’t think of anyone’s name. I’ll be back.
      Ok I’m back! 🙂
      Me & my sister, Lori Holt, Darlene Zimmerman, Holly Hill, Pat Sloan, Jacquelynne Steves, Liesl Gilson and so many more!

  7. I have a hard time choosing a favorite, depends on my mood. Lately my taste runs to the bright spring time colors and prints.

  8. Right now my favorite designer is Maureen Cracknell. My favorite varies with the season and what’s out in the market. There are loads of great designers, and future quilts waiting to be born!

  9. I love lots of designers, Joel Dewberry is one that comes to mind, and of course Heather Ross! I love so many…too many to mention….

  10. Love the Artisan Batiks, but favorite designer…hmmm, Jenny Beyer, Angela Walters, Tula Pink…..too many to choose.

  11. I don’t think I could pick just one, but Darlene Zimmerman is my favorite 30s repro designer. 😊

  12. What a fabulous giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win such great prizes. My favourite fabric designer is anyone who comes up with a really fun Halloween fabric. 🙂

  13. My favorite designer is Kate Spain! I am even drawn to her work when I don’t know it’s hers.

  14. My favorite designers are Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister Designs. They never fail to make me smile and drool when I see their fabric lines and patterns.

  15. My favourite designers keep changing every tie a new line comes out. I’m so fickle… Thanks so much for sharing

  16. I like Barbara Brachman and Bonnie and Camille. Just to name a couple of the very large number of collections that I like.

  17. I love way too many designers to name just one. Tula Pink and Robert Kaufman are favorites right now.

  18. Right now I am loving “Dear Stella” fabric designs but there are so many that are my favorite that it is a challenge to name just one. Thank you for this generous, wonderful give away.

  19. There are several designers that I love! But, perhaps my very favorite is Bonnie and Camille. Though Fig Tree and CO is a close second…I could keep going. 🙂

  20. Mckenna Ryans new line Sugar plum is awesome, Valori Wells always creates beautiful fabric, but if I had to go with an absolute favorite, I’d have to go with Tula Pink. I am a pink/purple/blue/green fanatic, and I like that fabrics from her previous collections blend in with her new.

  21. That changes with the style of quilt I’m working on. One day it might be Tula Pink and the next Bonnie and Camille, Basic Grey, Barbara Brackman or Darlene Zimmerman. I guess I don’t play favorites but love them all!

  22. I absolutely love everything the ladies from Cotton +Steel put out, can’t wait to get me some!!

  23. Hmm favorite…I really have quite a few, but have been loving Bonnie and Camille fabrics in my recent projects.

  24. I just love Heather Ross designs, especially the older ones. I’m definitely going to need to get some of the reprinted Mendocino. Thank you for the chance to win some great sewing supplies.

  25. Wow! it’s a hard choice to pick just one favorite! There are so many fabulous designers out there. I’ll list a few of the one’s that I love. Robert Kaufman, Henry Glass, Kate Spain, Maureen Cracknell, Alison Glass. Just so many awesome designers to choose from. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway. Would have love to been able to go to Market! Winning this would help to make up for missing it! 🙂

  26. I really don’t think I have a favorite. In fact, I don’t pay attention to the designer when I buy fabric. I just buy something I like for a particular project.

  27. Can’t pick just one – there are too many great ones out there! Some of my favorites are April Cornell, Sandy Gervais, Darlene Zimmerman, and more! LOL!

  28. I’m one of those scrolling along longingly from home! Such beautiful things so far at Quilt Market. And such a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win!

  29. I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. Pat Sloan is definitely one, and I’m excited to see what Mary Frons does, but I love seeing all sorts of fabrics.

  30. I have many favorites, not just one. I like Kate Spain, Basic Grey, Sweetwater, Holly Taylor and many more designers.

  31. is that a question you expect us to be able to answer when there are soooooo many wonderful choices out there…tula pink, anne marie horner and the list goes on

  32. What a great give away and so thoughtful to include those of us who can’t make it to market. It’s on my bucket list.

  33. There are so many fantastic fabric designers out there! Thank goodness! I love both modern and traditional prints, LOVE DZimmerman, LOVE Minnick and Simpson, Love Tula, I just don’t think I can pick just one :)! Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. I don’t really have a favorite fabric designer. Each fabric line and designer has a special place in my stash depending on the project I’m working on. I try to experiment with as many fabric choices as I can, and there is always something new to try.

  35. How envious I am. It is on my bucket list to be there one of these days. Thank You for the great giveaway! Have fun for all of us that couldn’t make it.

  36. I like so many. Darlene Zimmerman, Tula Pink, Jinny Beyer, Pat Sloan, all the designers are great, I can’t think of anyone I don’t like.

  37. So many favorites…but most recently using a lot of cotton and steel and anna maria horner. Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. Jennifer Sampou is my favorite right now. Adore her Black & White collection, just made Rob Appell’s Diamond Dreams with a gradient flow light at top to darkest at bottom using Kona Ash as my accent fabric.

  39. My friend and neighbor always goes to market. I have always been able to hear all about the cool things that are new. She had an accident and not able to go this year so we both are feeling sad. If I had to pick my favorite right now it would be Tula Pink and jaybird. Thanks

  40. McKenna Ryan always manages to catch my eye no matter what she designs. In reality though, it is incredibly difficult to choose just one designer when each of them offer something so unique.

  41. Kate Spain is my favorite with Minnick and Simpson, Fig Tree and Sweetwater also being close in the race.

  42. My current favorite is Emily Isabella for Birch Organics. Love the new Homestead collection!

  43. Too many great designers to have just one favorite. But currently I am working on some Pat Sloan projects.

  44. Awesome giveaway. I hope to go to Houston someday. My favorite designer changes everyday, depending on the project and color way of the day.

  45. I don’t think I have a favorite yet. I like lots of different designers fabric. I just choose what I like, the fabric that touches my heart.

  46. S. Khan is one of my favorite designers. But whatever fabric sings to me, at any time, is always a favorite.

  47. I have many favorite designers–Bonnie & Camille and Fig Tree are at the top of my list!
    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  48. Love the Kansas Troubles Quilt fabrics and Barbara Brackman’s reproductions. I also like the Primitive designs. So many talented designers, so little time to complete everything I would like to do. Thank you for the opportunity for the give-away

  49. I would love to see all of the new lines introduced at Quilt Market. I am really excited about Tula Pink’s, Alison Glass’, and Cotton and Steel’s next creations. Thanks!

  50. Hard to choose a favorite. I like Riley Blake, Pat Sloane, Amy Butler among others. Thanks for the chance to win!

  51. I like Riley Blake and Kaffe Fasset. I’m working on a Kaffe Fasset quilt right now! Amazing colors.

  52. One favorite!? Pick one?! I couldn’t even possibly do that…..my favorite would have to be the fabric I hold in my hands. Today it’s what you are featuring, for sure, as I am smack dab in the middle of a 1930’s project.

  53. I love Aurifil thread and just started using #12 for big stitch qulting. I want to see the new fabrics including those by Cotton & Steel. I’m working on a Halloween mini quilt right now.

  54. That’s such a tough question- it’s like trying to pick a favorite child! I love so many but am really loving Tasha Noel fabric right now!!

  55. I really can’t pick a favourite…. There just are too many that I love!!! Thanks for the chance! I would love to attend Quilt Market… it would be an amazing experience!!

  56. wow … favorite fabric designer! What a loaded question – so many amazing folks out there! I do love me some Tula Pink. I’ve been digging Carolyn Friedlander’s stuff lately too.

  57. Awesome prize package – someone is going to be very happy! It’s hard to pick a favorite designer because I like so many different styles. But a few who are sharing top billing with me are Kaffe Fasset, Bonnie and Camille, and Joanna Figueroa. Thanks!

  58. Awesome prize package. I love American Jane, Deb Strain, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, and Island Batik’s designers.

  59. I also like Victoria Findlay Wolfe, her quilt designs are pretty cool.
    thanks for a awesome giveaway

  60. There are too many great ones to pick just one! It would be too hard…. I love so many fabrics and some many designers. So wishing I was at market right now!!!

  61. It’s hard for me to choose just one designer. I think me favorite underrated designer is Martha Negley. Her designs are exquisite but she gets so little attention.

  62. I am into Kaffe Fassett at the moment but there are too many to choose a favorite. I would love to go to market.

  63. Thank you for all the fab photos and videos. I love all designers but particularly fond of Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic. Sweetwater and French General come next.

  64. I can’t pick one favorite designer! But I love Alison Glass and Darlene Zimmerman, Denyse Schmidt and Nancy Rink, and Carolyn Friedlander and up and coming Maureen Cracknell!

  65. My favorite designer changes depending on what I’m working with. My largest “collections” are Tula Pink, Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett. Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. I can’t pick a favorite, but would really love to win this, I’ve recently come to an appreciation of the 30’s and am wanting to do a quilt with them, so it would be great.

  67. I can’t pick one favorite, so I will pick my one favorite newish fabric designer, Corey Yoder.

  68. I don’t have a favorite as I like a huge variety of designer’s work, but two that come to mind immediately are Pat Sloan and Darlene Zimmerman.

  69. Bonnie and Camille at the moment – so many talented designers, it is subject to change often!

  70. It is too hard to pick just one, my parents taught me to play with all of my toys equally! That being said, I enjoy using Bonnie and Camille, still working on the log cabin block exchange quilt. I have enjoyed seeing The Cotton and Steel team develop and grow and love that their individual collections play well together. Fig Tree and Co, love all of her fall colors. Vanessa Christensen latest collections go with so many other fabrics and love Vanessa G.’s Gooseberry. I think it depends on your mood, or season sometimes.

  71. It’s impossible to pick only one favorite. I can say I really like Allison Glass, Tim Holtz, Tula, Kaffe, etc. I love something different about every one of them.

  72. Two of my favorite fabric designers are Joel Dewberry and Kaffe Fassett. Both create such beautiful designs!

  73. I don’t really have a favorite but I do follow Maureen Cracknell -as a s new designer she seems to be coming up with some really nice stuff!
    Thanks so much for the chance to win this awesome prize!

  74. Choose just one? That is like eating one potato chip.
    Tula Pink, Caleb Gray, Bonnie and Camille, Pat Sloan, McKenna Ryan. But I love using solids and batiks too.

  75. Jenny Beyer has always had my attention but if their designing I’m watching them. They give me so much inspiration.

  76. This is such a great giveaway! All designers have some great prints. Choosing one would leave out so many.

  77. I’d have to say I’m a Tula Pink and Alison Glass junkie. Also love me some kona cotton. And I loved the log cabin skirt Kim was wearing at Quilt market the first day. Saw it on instagram and it was darling.

  78. My “favorite” tends to be whatever I am working with at the moment. Right now it’s Allison Glass. So sweet of you to think of all of us that don’t go to market.

  79. I love bright colours, but I’m still so new to quilting that I have no clue about the available brands and designers. I still have so much to learn!

  80. Anyone designing batiks is at the top of my fabric list. Love working with batiks and the colors…..wow

  81. Apparently baby 3 decided it was time to come on Friday! So most of the weekend was spent recuperating and I missed just about every Quilt Market IG, tweet, blog post and giveaway but this one 😋, what a crazy weekend!

  82. Wow! That’s a loaded question! But if I HAD to choose a favorite, it would probably be a toss up between Alison Glass & Tula Pink (but thankfully I don’t really have to choose!!)
