Decisions, decisions! Right now I seem to be on a pattern kick and your Toes in the Sand pattern interests me.

Congrats on your 4 year anniversary!

Heather said...

Today my fav is unwind, I love the scrappiness of it. I would want to win the fabric :-)

Rachel said...

Love Chopsticks -- it always looks amazing, but different depending on fabric choices. I'd love to win fabric -- rachel rstrindle at yahoo.com

Erica said...

I am so happy you started a blog; congratulations on 4 years of awesome information! I don't know how to choose a favourite; I've made Three in a Box and Chopsticks and Come What May is up next. I would love to win your pattern bundle because Tiny Dancer looks just awesome!

Hilde said...

I love you Yummy pattern, i have sew it in the same fabric that you made it. I love it from the firs time i saw it. I will like the bundels with pattern and ruler. I have not bay this pattern yet. Good luck in the Quilt marked

Kristi said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the toes in the sand pattern, but haven't bought it yet, so I'd like to be entered in the pattern set ... even though I already have the ruler -- I'm sure I have a friend who can use it!

I love that pattern because it looks like so much fun to do all the different blocks, and yet the final look is super cohesive and fun.

(First runner up is Science Fair, I think :) Love the placement of the hexagons and the use of negative space)

Melissa said...

Congratulations and thanks for sharing with us over the last four years! My favorite pattern has to be the jawbreaker pillow - there's something so fun about all the hexagons! I'd love to win the fabric bundle :)

julie said...

My favorite is Chopsticks. I love playing with fussy cutting the triangles and frames... great way to celebrate interesting fabric.

I can't wait to try tiny dancer... could become my new favorite.

I would love to win the fabric bundle.

I would love to win the Pattern Bundle. So far I have only used your Radio Way pattern. I love it. I'm a beginner and the pattern is easy to follow with beautiful results. I've done two now with different colors and they've both turned out great. I can't wait to try more.

Kris said...

oops forgot to say I would like to be in the fabric bundle, I like Tiny Dancer because I love the contrast you can get with the design and background.

My favorite pattern is Tiny Dancer. I love the feeling of movement. I also have a soft spot for the Cat in the Hat pattern that was in the Hancock's catalog. It was the first time I'd recognized a designer's name that I felt connected to.

Denise in PA said...

Happy Blogiversary! You have accomplished so much in those 4 years! I love so many of your patterns, but I have a soft spot for Chopsticks - I haven't met one I didn't like - and I think I'm on my 4th or 5th one now! I will choose the fabric giveaway (I already have your ruler and a couple of the patterns!) o:)

jbonneau said...

Saskia

QBee said...

Gosh, so hard to pick a favorite pattern. I've been wanting to make Toes in the Sand, but I'm falling for "Little Dancer" pretty hard. Since I can't pick anyway, I would love to be entered in the pattern giveaway!

Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on your 4 year anniversary! :)

pianomama said...

Oooh....love Ballerina the most - made it in cute "Barbie" fabrics and I love the way it comes together quickly and that it shows off large goofy girly prints well. I'd love to win the pattern pack so I could make "Tiny Dancer":-)

I love them all but my favorite is snack time. I think I like the simple graphics of it. Please enter me for the fabric drawing. Thanks!

Crickets Corner said...

Congratulations on four years! Isn't it amazing what can happen in such a short amount of time. Pattern bundle please. Love the Tiny Dancer pattern because of the spinning movement, reminds me of a dancer twirling around.

Congrats!
My favorite is the Tiny Dancer - so much movement in it. Good and fitting name!
Please pick me for the fabrics!!! :-)

Thanks for the chance!

MaeveM said...

Did you say pick your favorite 10 patterns? Picking just one is so hard. Right now I am half way done with a king size (Yes, I know it doesn't come in that size) Boxed In that I started in class in Portland. You I guess it is "Love the one you are with" - it is a great pattern and going together very fast.

Fabric Bundle since I almost have all your patterns!

Mary P said...

Would love to win the pattern bundle. I think Ballerina is my current fave, although Wonton is cool too.

Maroesja said...

I love Yummy and Varsity most. Congratulations on your blogiversary!

Mrs.Hearts said...

I like Fast Forward the best because it is so unusual, and I've never seen any quilt pattern even similar.

Fabric bundle, please.

Thank you,
Myra~

How can I pick just one favorite pattern!!! :o) I just finished Raspberry Dessert and have two Ballerina quilts in the line up, one lap and one full.

janet said...

I love all of your patterns, it's like asking which of your children you like best, each has a special reason to like it a bit more. With that said and to follow the rules, it would have to be Toes In The Sand because it makes me want to go to the beach and reminds me of a country song. Congrats on your anniversary.

Karen said...

Favourite pattern is Toes in the Sand. I am doing a QAL with my LQS right now. I love that it is triangles, but the triangles have various designs. I love the clean lines of the whole project. It is a bang for your buck pattern.

Fabric please..I love all the patterns, but Toes in the Sand is my favorite..I like the pieced look of the block against the solid of the white!

Archie the wonder dog said...

It's hard to choose a favourite but eventually I chose 'Firecracker' because I love the shapes of the spaces between the 'main' block and would like to play with different settings/fabric placement. I'd like to be entered into the fabric giveaway, please! Thank you!

Congrats Julie! I love your work! My favorite pattern is Wonton - I love the secondary patterns and that you can really see beautiful fabric. I would like the fabric bundle since I already have the Hex N More ruler!

Thank you!

I can see from all these comments that we are all glad you started a blog. I'd love to win you patterns. In Australia they are a bit hard to source. Love Toe in the Sand.

Kathie said...

This is hard because I like both Lotus and Toes in the Sand. I think Lotus would have to be my choice because I like how the colors and patterns seem to flow into each other.

Lisas Mom said...

Hands down my favorite pattern is "Northern Lights" because its simply stunning! I luv how the colors cascade down the quilt. We are all greatfull that you decided to start this blog and share your talents with us. Since I already own the Hex N More ruler and 6 of your patterns, I would like the fabric bundle.

Juli-Anne said...

Toes in the Sand is my favorite new pattern! It is so unique. I would looooove a pattern pack!

M-R Charbonneau said...

Congratulations! I have your HexNMore ruler as well as a couple of your patterns already (love them!) so I'd enter for the fabric bundle. My favourite pattern of yours is your Nothern Lights. Thanks for the fab giveaway!

Barbara said...

Congrats on the 6th Anniversary of your blog. While I love all your patterns, Tiny Dancer is my favorite because there's a lot of movement in the design. I'd love to win your patterns and the especially the ruler.

Jennifer said...

Happy Blogiversary! What a scrumptous way to celebrate and say "TASTY" is my favorite patter (so far!) I cannot use your Hex ruler often enough. I find that when I need just that few moments of solitude and zen, I grab the ruler and box of fabric scraps and begin to cut half hexies and throw them in a bag. Before you know it I have table runners ready to make! If I was lucky enough to be randomly selected, I would love the fabric bundle (and would grab the ruler the moment the bundle arrives!) Happy, happy! Jennifer

Congrats on 4 years!! You have so many great patterns, but I'll say my favorite at the moment is the one that I'm working on - Snack Time. I'm making it with gorgeous batiks! If I win, I'd love the fabric bundle.

Janice said...

First of all Congratulations! Love the blog. I would like to be entered into the pattern draw and really like Tiny Dancer. I can just see little girls dancing and swaying their little skirts. So much fun. Thanks.

Teresa said...

I would love to win the fabric bundle. My favourite pattern is the Tiny Dancer because you can show the fabric really well.

Nancy said...

Congratulations on 4 yrs. I love Three in a Box.... it is very geometric and love the colors. Hard to choose, but I think I would like the fabric bundle.

thanks

LeAnne said...

Congratulations on the anniversary. My favorite pattern is Science Fair because I love hexagons and I like how they're sprinkled on the quilt. If I win, I'd like the patterns and ruler.

jackie said...

Hard to pick just one pattern. I'm really liking Tiny Dancer. It has great movement and I can see making it in anything from fresh fabric to reproductions. I've been following you for about 3 years now. Keep it coming.

Julie Birbeck said...

Congratulations on your success Julie!
It's hard to choose an absolute favourite, as I adore all your patterns. The Snack Time quilt is the one at the top of my list though as I seriously am addicted to hexagons. If I'm lucky enough to win, I would love to recieve the pattern pack. cjbirbeck@gmail.com

cbooth said...

I can never chose which one is my favorite! I have your book so I don't have to decide there. Of the newest ones snack time would be my favorite. I'd like to enter for the pattern bundle. Congratulations on all your successes!

terrieannie said...

Talk about a tough decision! I already own several of your patterns, including Ballerina, but I'm going to have to choose Tiny Dancer as my new favorite. I love the smaller blocks and the angled edges. I like that you have so many size options, too!
I'd sure love to win that nifty bundle of fabric....

Karen said...

I love the Snack Time pattern, I'm a sucker for rainbow quilts so you had me at the cover photo, and I've been thinking of having a go at a hexie pattern. I'd like to be entered into the fabric giveaway please :o) Thanks for the chance and happy blogiversary!

Elizabeth said...

My favorite pattern is Northern Lights because of the color play. I'd like to win the fabric bundle. Thanks

neecy said...

I like a LOT of your patterns. Hexagons are my favorite shape. So, anything with hexagons or a 60 degree angle catches my eye. And you have several patterns that I just love.
Would love the FABRIC bundle. (I think I have everything in the pattern bundle!)

Ashley G. said...

Would love to win the pattern bundle- my favorite is ballerina girl

Sandy said...

Congrats on 4 awesome years of blogging & growing as an amazing creative designer! You Rock!

Kimberly Cassie @ Quilty Doodads said...

Congrats on the amazing achievements in such a short period of time. I love tiny dancer which is why I want in on the pattern giveaway! Thanks for sharing with us!

Johanna said...

I would love the patterns! I think the tiny dancer pattern is adorable!

Teresa Silva said...

I would love the fabric bundle since I have most of your patterns already! Hard to choose a favorite but I think it would probably be Ballerina. I also love Tiny Dancer. I love both of these because of the movement they create. Thanks for the opportunity and keep coming up with these great patterns. Love all that you do!

Adele said...

Love Northern Lights but all of your patterns are great. Would love to win the fabric bundle. Thanks

Lynn McIndoe said...

Congratulations on 4 years of blogging. My favourite pattern is Tiny Dancer. I love the whirling blocks and prefer the smaller size than Ballerina. I would like the pattern bundle.

rachandcarl said...

I've always loved dot party! I've seen it made yp in so many great fabrics. I'd love the fabric bundle.

Amy said...

Congratulations! I would love the fabric! My current favorite pattern of yours is Toes in the Sand. Thanks!

Barb said...

I LOVE the Science Fair quilt. It is really the one pattern that has caught my eye and gotten me interested in the hexie craze! I would like the pattern pack if my name is picked. Thanks for the chance, hope you are creating quilts for many years to come!

Sarah said...

Tiny Dancer/Ballerina. I love the way the triangles sometimes look like they were just scattered about, depending on how you look at it. And my daughter is a dancer. I'm going with the pattern bundle. Thanks!

Lorna McMahon said...

Congratulations on your four year blogiversary, Julie! I found your book at the local library, and am following in your footsteps, even though I am old enough to be your.... older sister? Lol! My favourite pattern of yours is Raspberry Dessert. I do love your patterns... but like you, am interested in designing new quilts, so would love to be entered for the chance to win the fabric bundle. Keep up the great work! You are such an inspiration.... Especially in those cute new dresses! sewfreshquilts (at) gmail (dot) com

Sue Gribble said...

I like Wonton for its kaleidoscopic look. It would look great in just about any fabric collection. For this giveaway I would love to win the fabric bundle. Thanks for the opportunity.

redzelda said...

I own your book, Off the Rails, and another pattern I don't remember the name of without looking at it. I've enjoyed how Off the Rails quickly makes a great baby quilt, which looks harder than it was to make. It easy to straight line quilt with my little standard sewing machine. I would love some of your other patterns and the ruler, so bundle # 1 please!

Angela Bullard said...

Congrats on your blog-iversary! I have been eyeing your Toes in the Sand BOM lately and I think it be use its unlike any of the other quilt I have in the work. I would love to win either bundle but I especially love the FABRIC :). Thanks for a chance to win!

sandi s said...

I just received your book in the mail and love it. I can't wait to make a couple of the quilts. I would love to win the Fabric Bundle. It is outside my normal comfort zone but wow, would be great for quilts from your book. Thanks for the giveaway.

Lou said...

I would love the fabric bundle since I have everything except one of the patterns in the pattern bundle:)
I love all your patterns but am enjoying making the Toes in Sand as a BOM:)
Thanks!

Potpourri said...

I love Snack Time this evening, tomorrow it might be Lotus or Science Fair, and the next day? I love them all

NotionNanny said...

My favorite pattern is northern lights. I would love to win the fabric bundle. Congratulations on your anniversary. That is amazing.

lindaroo said...

Ballerina is such a sweet way to show off favorite fabrics! I'd love to win your patterns bundle, with your Hex N More Ruler. Then I'll be pulling out those favorite collections I've been hoarding!

Julie said...

Chopsticks is my favorite because that is the first one I made by you. Fabric bundle please and thank you for the chance.

bambi said...

I would love to be entered into the contest for the fabric bundle since I already have the Hex N More ruler and two of the patterns in the other bundle. I think my favorite pattern of yours is Tiny Dance both because it reminds me of the little whirly-gig toys and because it's the perfect pattern for feather quilting (just like on the pattern cover)

bambi said...

oops--I meant Tiny Dancer!

Joanne said...

Congratulations on four years! Wow! Where did the time go? I've made a number of your patterns and have found them all to be wonderful. They are easy to follow and well-written. If forced to choose, my favorite would be Plaid Parade simple because I like plaid things. I often quilt projects in an uneven plaid design because I just think it's cool Although I love fabric and can always use more, I think I'd opt for the pattern and ruler pack. I'm a "ruler wh***e" and am always wanting another. So far I've held off on buying this one so winning it would be awesome!

Kim said...

My favorite of your patterns is Northern Lights. I love the solids! Please enter me in the pattern giveaway.

Angela said...

I would love to be entered in for the fabric bundle.

Picking one is tough but I really like toes in the sand, mainly for all the different blocks & they are triangles. Love it!!

ritainalaska said...

snack time is my favorite ... i've a hexies addiction and this pattern says make me! would like to win the fabric bundle to make this pattern.

Fan4may said...

Snack time is my favorite pattern. I would like to be entered in the drawing for the fabric. Fan4may at aol dot com

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

I am going to say fabric only because I have your ruler and am working on Toes in the Sand already :) COngrats on 4 years. hugs

SewLindaAnn said...

I'd like to be entered for the fabric please. I just bought your Hex and More Ruler and haven't decided my first pattern to use it yet. My fave is Chopsticks.

Qltr89 said...

I bought the Hex and More Ruler because I really wanted to make the pattern Candy Dish. I got both the ruler and the pattern but haven't had time to make it. Thank you for the chance to win a fabric bundle - my preference.

Bennett and Graves said...

I would love to make Fast Foward because I love the contrast and that strips can make such a complicated looking design. Please enter me in the Fabric Bundle. Have fun at Quilt Market!
