Kona Modern Quilts Giveaway!

Have you been curious about the Kona Modern Quilts collection?   It's that one by Cynthia Frenette that imitates wonky patchwork in kona solids.  So, basically, it's a collection of cheater prints for those who love solids!

My interest has been piqued but I wanted to see more. This is a collection I'd have loved to see in person, if only there were a modern quilt shop near bye!  When Tammy at Marmalade Fabrics offered to giveaway a bundle in the Pacific color story, I asked if she might take a few pictures to give us a better look...




Woa, did she deliver!  Thanks, Tammy, for giving us a better idea of this unusual collection. If you'd like to see more, Rita of Red Pepper Quilts recently finished a quilt in the pacific color story.  Mixing these funky prints into a quilt or other project definitely gives that cool, improv vibe without all the work.  In fact, maybe I should be making covered journals from something like this, eh?

All of Cynthia's Kona Modern Quilts color stories are made to coordinate with specific Kona colors.  Solids shown with the Pacific set are Tomato, Corn Yellow, Windsor and Lake.  Marmalade also has 145 Kona colors in stock, sold by the 1/2 yard and in special fat quarter bundles (like my old favorite, Bottled Rainbows, and the more recent Quilt Con bundle). 



::Giveaway:: 

Marmalade Fabrics is awarding the Pacific bundle containing 1/2 yards of 6 prints from the Kona Modern Quilt Pacific Colorstory.  To enter to win I have a question for you!  When fabric shopping, do you make your selections from multiple collections, picking and choosing a little of this and a little of that, or do you tend to purchase prepared bundles instead?  Those bundles may be all from one collection or something already put together from misc. collections. Of course it probably varies, but which is more likely for you?  A la carte or bundles?

Giveaway closes Friday afternoon, the 20th.  Open to everyone, everywhere.  Good luck my friends!


******Comments Closed******

And number 14 wins.  What a good number!  I'm contacting Miss Del now.  Thanks y'all for playing along.  I'm not sure that there is a consensus between a la carte or bundles, but we all sure know how to shop!

  1. I had not thought of it until you asked, but I am a bundle buyer.

  2. I'm a pick-and-chooser! The only "full line" bundles I've gotten have either been online wins or gifts; the rest of the time I just buy what strikes my fancy or what's on sale! :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. I like to chose my own and mix it up - create my own bundles - even mix pre-cuts and strips - I pull them all apart and what I don't use I pass on to someone.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I've never bought a bundle in my life, except when I was starting out I bought charm packs. I mix and match, though sometimes I can't resist a few from a collection.

  5. I much prefer to mix and match. That's not to say that a nicely put together bundle isn't great, I like them too.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm definitely a piece by piece buyer but have succumbed many times to a beautiful bundle. The Kona Modern Quilt Collection looks wonderful - perfect for adding extra zing to my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I lean toward collections, but as i'm learning I have started choosing my own combinations of fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I buy piece by piece because I like it or working on a "collection". I will buy charm packs or layer cakes but generally not bundles. Fun question!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sometimes I buy prepared bundles, and sometimes I'm fond of different fabrics: one look and you know that's a "must have" even you didn't know what to sew out of it!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I tend to choose from different collections - mix and match.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do both but when i make a quilt i try to alway combine more the two fabric lines. This way it the end result is more original. lisaursino@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  12. If I'm fabric shopping online I tend to buy premade bundles since it's harder to compare fabric color tones online. If I'm shopping at my local quilt shop I like to pick and choose from multiple lines :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I buy piece by piece most of the time but I also do buy bundles. I agree that it's harder to buy piece by piece online.

    ReplyDelete
  14. So far, I tend to buy a little of this and a little of that, and try to match them up.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I usually buy a little of this and a little of that. I wish they had better bundles at my local places.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I mix and match but it's much harder to do on-line than in person. I do like the shop selected mix and match bundles that lots of on-line shops offer but I've not bought one...yet!

    ReplyDelete
  17. To be honest, I usually don't do shopping for quilts, I'm pretty much a newbie, but this seems an excellent way to start quilting~!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I do both. I mostly pick and choose, but I've bought bundles, too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really love the ease of picking bundles!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was buying mostly bundles for a while, but then I realized I often didn't love ALL the fabrics in most bundles and that was kind of a waste of money... So now I mostly pick individual fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think of myself as a piece by piece buyer, and am often guided by what's on sale! However, I am more and more drawn to bundles and precuts lately.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  22. I do love a bundle, most of my stash is made up of them, most other pieces are sale bargains or one offs that I just have to have. I am trying to be more selective but I think I'd like all of this collection! thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love bundles- as I buy online a lot,at least I'm certain they'll all go together! I buy neutrals and semi solids in rainbow colours indiscriminately though!
    I love this now range - hope I'm lucky enough to win!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh I'm a bundle lover, but generally I only have cash on hand to buy pieces!

    slhightower5(at)yahoo(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm more of a bundle buyer.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bundles are my preference as I am not good at matching colors or patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I tend not to buy bundles, usually I'll buy a few patterns from a collection, but I like to choose which ones I think will work with my existing stash. I also store my fabrics by color, so when I'm pulling for a project I may end up with a few from one collection, but it's not just one line in a quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think I often just buy fabrics which cach my eye and interest and most of the time I use sales. But I also love bundles and precuts as they are so easy to use. Thanks so much for the give away!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like bundles a lot, but if I happen to see a fabric that I just love, I'll get it. I guess it depends on the project. I I like this bundle! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. When shopping in a real store i tend to pick and choose...but online i go for bundles. Love those prects!
    Boppiesgirl@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like to do both. I don't always like all the prints in a bundle collection so will pick and choose from a particular collection. But...I like to pick and choose from individual fabrics too. Depends on the project. This is an awesome fabric collection too! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Compro em sacos de 30 kilos e vem de todos os tamanhos e cores,estampas e sólidos.Quando preciso de algum específico compro em metros.Obrigada.

  33. A la carte for sure. Thanks for the giveaway! I love that line!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I definitely do a la carte. Which means I have to go back many times. Thanks for the chance to win this great collection!

    ReplyDelete
  35. i do both. i'll buy a bundle if i really love the line but most of the time i buy whatever individual fabrics strike my fancy. even if i do buy bundles i don't like to make projects with just one collection--i'll divide them and mix and match.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If I like the majority of prints in a collection then I tend to buy the whole bunch (if there aren't to many prints). But if that is not the case and I only like a few prints then I just pick these. What I actually have never done is buy a pre-selected bundle. The never seem to appeal to me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's mostly "a la carte" both online and in a shop.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I rarely buy several fabrics from a line. I have some vision in my head - "text" or "this precise shade of orange" or "large scale flowers" - and I go on a hunt!

    Thank you for this awesome offer!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love bundles, but not necessarily bundles of a single line. I love to find bundles that shop-owners have put together of a single color or a color combo. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Definitely "a la carte" from multiple collections. In all these years, I've never purchased a bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Mostly I pick a couple prints I like from a collection, then add what I like (or what I already have) to make it more my own.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I almost always go a la carte. Not only does a single line generally make for a less interesting quilt (I've seen some lovely exceptions), but I don't usually like all the prints in a single line. Plus, I don't tend to buy FQs. If I like something, I'll get a 1/2 yd minimum (generally a full yard), and if I REALLY like it, I'll get 2 or more.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I tend to buy what catches my eye at the moment :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am totally random when buying fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like to pick them out as a I go. Sometimes if I really like a line, I'll buy charm packs, but I haven't bought a whole bundle of anything yet.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I usually pick and choose from various lines, although I do occasionally buy bundles. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I tend to buy what a designer has put together, but as time has gone by & building my stash with smaller prints I just fall in love with. I have recently been buying a lot of the solid colors, have fallen in love with all the modern quilts I have seen on blogs.
    Thanks for letting me join.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I do a lot of my fabric shopping online simply because of the pre-fab bundles. I have such a hard time putting fabrics together on my own so I love that someone else has done the work for me!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I normally do bundles but if I see a great sale a la carte then I will pick up a few pieces ;)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Almost always bundles or kits!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I tend to do bundles...but I am leaning more toward piecing together my own "collection" for the next quilt. We'll see ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am a picker and chooser and patter and lover and hugger and hoarder:)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I like to mix and match from a collection adding in bits and pieces that coordinate/accentuate. If the shop sells a mixed budle that I love I will get that too. I love all of these fabrics - yum!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm a picker and a chooser. This prints looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Pretty fabric. I tend to buy from 1 collection. I am not very good at putting fabric together.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have a hard time picking fabrics to go together. I buy bundles. If that's not an option, I bring my husband to help choose. He's better with color.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm sure I'm not unique but I do a little of both. We don't have much by way of fabric stores where I live so sometimes I take the help from bundles otherwise I'd be searching for the right coordinating prints for years. BUT, I do love the process of picking and choosing each fabric yourself. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the look of bundles, but I usually end up shopping a la carte. I think that might have more to do with my limited finances than anything else, though. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I tend to pick my own across the whole range of the shop. I do like the bundles one of my local shops puts together and have bought a few of those. On the whole though I like picking my own and mixing and matching with the stash at home.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I pick and choose like crazy. I've only purchased one bundle ever and it wasn't even for me. I like that I can make each quilt have a unique peraonality all its own.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It all depends on what I'm making but I'm naturally drawn to bundles. It saves a step in the creative process that can sometimes be daunting. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Most of the time I pick and choose my way through the fabric store. Sometimes I see bundles that I love and can't live without (I'm sure you know the feeling), but in those instances I usually feel like a mere fat quarter or 1/2 yard isn't enough!! When the Ghastlies collection rolls around, I buy yardage. <3

  64. I definitely pick and choose from different collections! There are always prints in collections that I love, and prints in the same collection that I could care less for. I just buy what I love!

    ReplyDelete
  65. When I shop online, I buy bundles, collections and mixes. When I shop in a store I pick and choose from everything!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm more likely to choose fabric a la carte. But bundles are always an option too!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Being a newbie I choose bundles mostly.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I like to buy bundles to use when making quilts - and I like to buy a la carte for other projects!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm usually an a la carte buyer, although in the last year or so I have bought more bundles by collection than I ever thought I would :) When the designers make such beautiful lines, how can I resist?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Mostly I buy bits and pieces, but every now and then a bundle will tempt me beyond what I can resist.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm a picker and chooser when it comes to prints. when it comes to solids, I stay with Kona products. I've bought the occasional bundle, but really for me its about choosing what I like in yardage. thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I orefer a bit of this and a bit of that. But, a bundle can be very easy to work with. Less timr required to match. But I love the adventure of matching.

    ReplyDelete
  73. i'm a little bit of both, but i've been doing bundles since i'm shopping for a specific project.

    ReplyDelete
  74. What a gorgeous line! I love bundles but never really buy them. For whatever reason I've always enjoyed putting together my own "collection" for my projects. I think it gives whatever you're making a custom look. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have in the past tended to buy from multiple collections, but that is changing as I am starting to buy more and more on-line. Easier to coordinate colors from one collection if you can't see it in person to judge color.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I tend to stick to prepared bundles (likely a single collection form a designer) and then get the shop to match it with my desired number of solids.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Tend to stick with bundles of an entire line. Then I may/may not mix across lines for a project I do find myself looking closer at premixed bundles these day :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. If I'm in love with a collection, I'll buy the whole thing in fat quarters or half yards. But that has only happened a few times. Most of my fabric shopping is fat quarters of prints on sale that I love, and I mix and match.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I mix and match and generally buy a yard or more. I have bought a couple FQ bundles and I love them, but have a habit of just leaving them bundled up and looking pretty rather than using them!

    ReplyDelete
  80. It depends on the projects if its a colourful quilt like my cathedral window or my current WIP dresden quilt I can mix and match but if im sticking to a colour scheme I tend to get from the same bundle ie my sarah jane children at play quilt as finding the same tone of colour in a differnt fabric line can be quite difficult. I have managed to mix and macth within a colour scheme like for my sisters wedding quilt but ended up overbuying fabric as finding colours online to match is tricky, so i ended up not using a lot. If they had a quilt shop here in the u,k with a plentiful supply of designer fabrics I would mix and match a lot more.

    ReplyDelete
  81. When I buy online I like picking bundles as then I know the fabrics will work together, but when buying in person I buy what I like and rarely buy bundles!

    ReplyDelete
  82. As a beginner I've used charm packs for the majority of my quilts. However I am starting on a paintbox quilt so I am now cutting down assorted fat quarters to get the pieces I need. They are coming from any collection/designer that I take a fancy too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I do random fabrics. A bit from here and there as I am a sewer of everything and there is always remnants that suit quilt making. My sister is a bundles girl though and makes more professional looking quilts. Love those fabrics in the new Kona range. Good for our tropical area.

    ReplyDelete
  84. It varies.... One of my favourite aspects of quilting is picking coordinating fabric. Sometimes it is from a collection with one or two additional fabrics thrown in and sometimes it is a complete assortment of different things. I find that I don't tend to use bundles as there are usually one or two in the bundle that I don't like. When I order fabric online, I try to stick to a collection as it is easier to coordinate colors.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am mostly an ala carte girl. I rarely like every print from a collection, and I like being able to mix new stuff with stash stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I tend to purchase individual fabrics I like -- only rarely do I love a whole collection enough to get a bundle!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Since I"m a beginner I'm not too confident in choosing fabrics from different lines. I tend to choose the bundles. Hopefully I'll become more adventurous in my fabric choosing as I become more experienced with quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I never buy bundles. I feel it limits my choice as I'm rather picky about the colors and prints I choose. It's a personal thing.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I started out buying collections, now I like to put together my own fabrics. Sometimes I purchase bundles others have put together.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I love to mix match designers, I like texture and color....

    ReplyDelete
  91. I am awful at buying bundles on line, just because it's so easy! Or I should say I'm real good at it. Now I choose from different lines, but my favorite is Kona! I also pick up remnants wherever I go as I like scrappy quilts. Guess I'm a little of each.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I buy fewer bundles, but mainly because I buy such small bits of fabric at a time. Not because I have any skill at fabric selection! I'd love this bundle -- I was so amazed with how Rita used it. I think it is challenging (in a good way!).

    ReplyDelete
  93. I am a a la carte girl - I love matching and mixing! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I usually buy focus fabrics, or fillers to go with my favorite collections - indigo, greys, reds, white with small prints. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I am most definitely a pick and mix girl. When I started quilting I bought bundles but quickly found there were always some prints that I didn't like so much and ended up giving away. So I seldom get a whole line of fabric any more.

    ReplyDelete
  96. What a beautiful giveaway. I shop both, bundles and then depending on the colour palette I need I pick and choose!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I do both. If I really fall hard for a line and have SOME idea what I'm going to do with it i fall for the bundle . Otherwise I pick and choose. BTW I;ve been admiring that quilt on Rita's blog every since she put it up. i sure would love to imitate it.

    ReplyDelete
  98. for the most part, i like to mix it up...although there are a few collections that i have bought because i love every fabric in them but even then, i like to pull the collection apart and mix it with other choices! thanks for this great giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Usually I purchase prepared bundles and I love Marmalade Fabrics Shop and this giveaway is really wonderful!!!!
    Thank you Rachel and thank you Tammy ^__^

    ReplyDelete
  100. I almost always buy prepared bundles, usually from the same line. Since screen resolutions and camera differ, I'm never sure if the colors will work or not. Plus, being far enough away from any LQS, buying online is my first choice.

    What wonderful fabrics! Thank you two so much for this chance!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I do both. It depends on the quilt pattern I've choosen and what I want the outcome to be. Great giveaway! Thanks for a chance. :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of this fabric - I've also been curious about it! Re: your question - I typically buy fabric by collection, but I like to make up my own bundles (not pre-bundled)and I also do collect "stash" fabric in my favorite colors to have available to add to my collection purchases!

    caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  103. I do both as well, but I'm the likeliest to buy whatever is on sale. So if it's a bundle of one specific collection at a great price, I'll get it. But if fat quarters are on sale, I'll get fabric from a whole bunch of different lines. This makes me sound like a jerk, but I choose my fabric based almost solely on what I can get for the best price.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Definitely a la carte. Sometimes I even buy what is a real bundle, but with one or two things different. So the bundles are helpful to have there, even if I do not buy them, to know which things go together.

    ReplyDelete
  105. When I buy it is usually yardage a la carte from the same collection for prints. Kona solids are bought in scrap packs, fqs, or yardage (1 or more) depending on the quilt I'm making... or a bundle when love how all the colors look together. mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  106. I usually pick and choose -- usually the fabrics that "speak to me" are not all from the same collection. Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I like to pick and choose, mostly - I love putting together my own bundles of fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  108. As I ususally buy online and sometimes it's a bit difficult to be sure of the true colors so I tend to buy bundles. Unless I already know the fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway. Ana

    ReplyDelete
  109. If trying to match colors, I usually buy the bundles so that I know they will go together. Otherwise, I pick and choose. I'm all over the place.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I buy random fabrics but lately when I see those super bundles I should change that. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I don't really buy the bundles. I like to pick and choose my fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Both - I get bundles from the collections that I love every piece in and would have bought all of them anyway. That doesn't mean they always get used together though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. I usually buy bundles because I mostly buy online so matching colours is hard and also I'm not great at choosing colours that go together.
    My handstitched class quilt is the first I have made picking my own fabrics. It's a little scary but I'm enjoying it.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I get both bundles and a la carte.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I only buy a la carte. I bought a fat quarter bundle of a whole line once and was so dissapointed - I don't think I've used half of the prints yet - I didn't like them:-)
    So I only buy what I like and most is on sale. Fabric here in DK is insanely expensive:-)

    ReplyDelete
  116. Bundle buyer, easier than me trying to match colors.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I do both but mostly a la carte!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I just pick what I like...no bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I am definitely a little of both. If I just really like a fabric line and have no particular plan, I'll go for the bundle. If I have a particular project already planned out, I will pick and choose.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I most definitely buy bundles, but, I might then add a couple of other fabrics of my own choice to them - I just need someone else to get me started on the choosing!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I like to buy a little of this and a little of that. I love how quilts look when you combine different collections. I think that every fabric in a quilt I made for my sister (Cindy's Quilt) came from a different line. I have only recently purchased my first packs of charm squares.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I pick and choose my favorite fabrics. I only buy when I really really have to have it for something I'm making.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I like to go in my own direction and pick and choose most of the time. However, there are usually a couple of bundles that I can't resist and end up buying at the same time. I justify by saying I'm building my stash... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  124. It all depends on the bundle. If I like all the fabrics I may order one if I don't I'll just get the fabrics from it I do like. I like to mix and match as sometimes I find that works out cheaper than buying the bundle. I like stores that have a pick your own with set prices.
    Thanks for the chance to win =D

    ReplyDelete
  125. I'm a la carte! I've only ever bought a bundle when the Quiltcon bundle came out.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I do both, but I'm mostly a bundle buyer.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I usually buy a bundle, but I am starting to put together my own more often

    ReplyDelete
  128. I used to buy most of my fabric from Joanns, so I guess I'm a la carte.
    But if I'm not buying from Joanns, which I am trying to do more of, I tend to lean towards bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I'm definitely an a la carte girl most of the time...but have been lured by wonderful bundles. Even with a bundle, I still change out fabrics when piecing, can't help but put my own spin on things!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I don't have a LQS so I shop primarily online - in that case I am buying bundles of some sort and maybe yardage from the same line to go with (borders, bindings). If I am fortunate to come across a fabric store I would buy a piece of this and a piece of that.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'm generally a bundle buyer - it takes some of the guesswork out choosing fabrics. But recently I've been getting a little braver in mixing and matching! I love the look of these prints - I had to do a double take when I first saw Rita's quilt. They are so effective!

    ReplyDelete
  132. A la carte! I probably spend too much time mixing and matching, though!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I usually like to pick and choose but most of what I've used lately have been precuts which means I've been using one line.

    ReplyDelete
  134. My purchases tend to be ala carte!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I'm generally more of the a la carte type of girl, but there are always exceptions!

    ReplyDelete
  136. A la carte for me! Though I make an exception once in a while. Thanks for the chance at the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Since I am so indecisive about what fabrics to get whenever I go to the fabric store, I typically end up settling with pre-made bundles. Usually from the same line. But oh, do I wish I had the confidence to just snatch up prints and solids here and there and have them perfectly coordinate.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I mostly by a la carte, but I love bundles and have gone that route occasionally

    ReplyDelete
  139. Ala carte usually, I rarely love an entire fabric line...there are some exceptions I just am drawing a blank at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I choose a bit of this and that (usually what is on sale!) I have never bought a FQ Bundle.
    Love these fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I love to pick and choose, but generally pick two fabrics from a line that will "play together" nicely. I like to use these for bag/lining or other coordinated uses. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Absolutely a la carte (and almost always on sale).

  143. I buy what I like...of course that means occasionally I buy a bundle!

    ReplyDelete
  144. Ala carte. I usually buy what's on sale, one or two pieces at a time.

  145. I love bundles.. sometimes I have a hard time visualizing what I want. Plus, I often find great color combos I would never have picked out on my own! :D

  146. I'm usually a mix and match girl.

  147. I loved bundles for a while, but then I realized there were always one or two in there I didn't use. Now I'm picking an choosing more.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm a mix and match person for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  149. i usually mix and match, but sometimes i just can't resist a bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I used to pick only bundles, but now I venture out on my own more! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I tend to make my own bundles from 1/2 yard cuts. I really like the color/fabric selection process.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I do both also, but if I had to choose, I guess it would be a la carte. :) thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  153. I don't tend I always buy ready done bundles - guess I just don't have the confidence yet to choose my own. It will come and I hope soon cause I sure ain't gettin any younger that's for sure. Great giveaway and thanks for the chance.

  154. I pick whatever catches my eye. I don't think I have ever had ever fabric in a line or even more then two or three. I have bought some charms in a specific line but that is about it. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome bundle.

  155. I love to pick out my own fabric, and combine from different collections. That is almost my favorite part of designing a quilt, is pick the material. When I worked a fabric store, I would pick out fabric for lots of people who were not sure how to put things together. I rarely buy kits or bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  156. A la carte for me. Its rather rare for me to buy bundles, but even then, I've notice that the bundles I'm drawn to tend to be assortments of various designers that someone has selected. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  157. It depends. If my pattern calls for fat quarters or I just love the fabric I will buy fabric in bundles. If I don't like what the pattern was originally made in I will buy alacart.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I buy a little of this and a little of that. I am scared I wouldnt use all of the bundle. If I didnt like what is left I might not use it. This way if I win a bundle I will no without breaking my budget. Thanks for the chance.

  159. I definetely a mix and match gal. In the two years Ive been quilting Ive yet to buy a bundle of matched stuff. I feel like its more personal when I do the picking on my own

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'm often drawn to bundles or stories to create a certain quilt, I also search by color for other projects, but my solids are always Kona.

    ReplyDelete
  161. I usually build my own pallet for the custom quilts I design.. But for my own stuff, I'm in LOVE with FQ packs and strip sets. Go figure!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  162. I have always mixed and matched but I have been itching to purchase a bundle lately. Maybe, if I'm lucky, I'll be making a quilt with this bundle give away. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  163. I'm picky and don't usually like all the fabrics in a collection. I am definitely an al a carte girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I'm new to quilting but so far I have just randomly chosen. I truly think bundles will be the way to go in the future - everything coordinates beautifully that way. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  165. If I'm buying in person, it's by the piece. If I'm buying online, it's by collection--I don't trust looking at colors on the web.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Ala carte for me. I find the fabric stores typically run out, or don't carry, the full line of a collection. So then it's either Search & Select just the right fabric, or go through the stash at home.

    ReplyDelete
  167. both - I pick and choose and sometimes buy a pre-cut bundle and matching yardage from the same collection

    ReplyDelete
  168. I almost always choose separate pieces - but I do have several bundles :).

    ReplyDelete
  169. I've never bought a bundle, I like to pick and choose, but lately have wondered whether bundling would stretch me to use fabrics I might not otherwise consider?

    ReplyDelete
  170. A la carte or bundles? I'm a bundle girl UNLESS I get piggy and want more! I love more!

    ReplyDelete
  171. I tend to pick and choose. If I had the budget I would buy some bundles though.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I pick & choose by colors, from different collections. Once in a while I might buy a jelly roll, but I usually add to it from other collectins.

  174. Mix and match most of the time (I do buy charm pacs or layer cakes occasionally) the only bundles I have bought are solids as I expand my "collection"

    ReplyDelete
  175. I like to pick a little bit from here and a little bit from there, I usually don't buy prepared bundles. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  176. I love bundles. I really like when a shop lets you create one of your own for a bit of a discount.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Usually I buy ala carte....

    ReplyDelete
  178. I usually pick and choose fabrics when I'm in a shop or store, but if I'm buying online I tend to get a fat quarter bundle or jelly roll so everything's all together. I really like to blend fabrics and pattern lines on my own, but sometimes it's hard to tell what things will really look like when you're buying online.

  179. Rachel,

    I usually pick from different collections unless I fall in love with the line. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Have a good night.

  180. I've only been quilting a year. At first I only bought bundles but the accountant in me didn't like the fact that there was always one or two fat quarters that I just didn't like. Now I'm more confident and I tend to buy just the fabrics that I think I can't live without.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Pick and choose...the scrappier the better!!

    ReplyDelete
  182. Living overseas with no fabric shops that have what I LOVE I am for now more if a bundle girl. But get me loose in my shops back in Melbourne and watch out! Still love to touch and feel and pile bolts of fabric on a counter for cutting :)

  185. I am really an ala carte person. I like to pick and choose.
    I use my stash a lot and then buy if needed to coordinate
    more fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win.

  186. I buy bundles if I love everything or most of everything in the collection. But the fun part is picking and choosing so that's what I prefer

    ReplyDelete
  187. Al la Carte all the way! Except of course when I want to buy coordinated packets!!

    ReplyDelete
  188. Since I'm a newbie, I've mostly bought bundles so far but I'm starting to branch out when I see something I love.

    ReplyDelete
  189. I am not able to buy much, but I tend to pick random FQ's at this point when in an actual LQS.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I use to go to store and choose my fabric from different lines but I have to say sometimes I just love the bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I mix it up and having seen this fabric in person ion the designers hands, it is fabulous!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  192. it's whatever 'speaks' to me for that quilt

    ReplyDelete
  193. I always choose my own and mix it up. Sometimes I think about getting a bundle, but then there are just enough prints that I don't love and so I don't get it. ...And I love the fabrics you featured!

    ReplyDelete
  194. I like to start with a 2-4 from a collection and then add in my own coordinating...Im not sure if thats bundle or ale' carte but either way, fabric is definitely my weakness, LOL! Thank You!!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  195. A la carte is how I choose fabric for projects. I quilt often "outside the lines" so it is best for me to pick and choose and decide how much of each color/fabric. I would actually like to complete a project using a bundle for once - let someone else make the color decisions for me.
