    I like A the best but it surely wouldn’t break my hear if i got B. I really don’t have a favorite line or designer. I generally go by what appeals to me at the moment

    One of my favorite designers would be Jean Wells.

    • Terrie J Morgan June 28, 2018 at 6:53 pm #

      Anyway C, thank you for sharing your insights and expertise so willingly. Forgot to say that I really like A.

  12. Kathy E. June 27, 2018 at 8:07 pm #

    So kind of you to share your lovely batiks, Carole! I’m always drawn to Kate Spain’s fabrics. Her style seems to be my style! I’d prefer “A”…love those colors! duchick at gmail dot com

  13. Rochelle June 27, 2018 at 8:07 pm #

    Carole, this is a remarkable giveaway…I hoard my batiks and have to talk loudly to myself about using them before I die. I like both A and B. I don’t have a favorite fabric designer. I look at the prints/pallette and choose from that based on the project. But I do love a good quality cotton with a soft hand.

  14. Lois Bates June 27, 2018 at 9:00 pm #

    Love to win fabric A. Really like Alison Glass fabrics.

  15. Sandy K June 27, 2018 at 9:14 pm #

    I would love to win B. I like Tula fabrics.

    I loved your modern curves class that I took at Fabric Smart in Gulfport in March!

    • Carole Lyles Shaw June 28, 2018 at 7:47 am #

      Hi Carol! Thanks for taking my class. I love teaching it because everyone comes up with such different approaches and fabrics. Good luck in the drawing.

  26. carol nelms June 28, 2018 at 9:28 am #

  27. Pat Grice June 28, 2018 at 10:13 am #

    Hi Carol, thanks for the giveaway. Currently I’m really into Moda Grunge fabric design. I’ll be happy with ALL of the giveaways.

    • Carole Lyles Shaw June 29, 2018 at 7:55 am #

      Hi Pat! And Fabric Smart just got in a whole lot of new colors. I haven’t been up there in awhile but I’m sure they are beautiful.

  28. Anita Altman June 28, 2018 at 10:59 am #

    Thanks ?

  29. Jayne P June 28, 2018 at 2:20 pm #

    I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I would love the chance to win A or B – Thank you

  30. Elizabeth A. Franck June 28, 2018 at 2:35 pm #

    Hi Carol, what a wonderful way of sharing! Thank you. I would be delighted with any of the fabrics.
    Personally, I do love Baiks – In Island Batiks – Safari, Vintage Morris, Wild Things and Ocean Odessey. As I move into modern quilting, I am expanding my stash to include more solids, geometric patterning as well as the use of white, greys and blacks – quite exciting!
    Recently, I have become interested in Moda Grunge for negative space in modern quilts. I look forward to all your postings and have made use of many including: Modern Design Principles Part1 and Modern Quilt Guild: Mini Quilt Challenges 1,2 and 3.
    As the VP coordinating programs for our Rockford Area MQG, I am offering your challenges along with some challenges appearing Modern Patchwork -July/Aug 2018 to our membership as we create a Mini Quilt Challenge.
    Thank you for offering so much to so many. Hopefully, my move to the west coast of Florida will be within two years. Elizabeth

  31. Quilting Tangent June 28, 2018 at 2:58 pm #

    Island Batik is one of my favorites. All giveaways.

  32. Adriana Gonzales June 28, 2018 at 7:47 pm #

    I love all batiks… especially the moda grunge line (is that considered a batik lol). B looks amazing cause I love making modern quilts that go with everything. ?

    • Carole Lyles Shaw June 29, 2018 at 7:54 am #

      Hi Adriana, I love Grunge also. And they have so many colors now it has become overwhelming to choose! And yes, I don’t think Grunge is considered a batik. I call it a tone-on-tone. Most of them read almost like a solid and I think that’s why they blend so very well with many modern prints.

  33. sue baker June 28, 2018 at 9:37 pm #

    love fall color tones batiks

  34. Susan June 29, 2018 at 8:50 am #

    I love working with batiks & island batikcolors are beautiful! If I were to be so lucky to win, I would pick A.
    Thank you.

  35. Brenda June 29, 2018 at 4:17 pm #

    Sstill in love with Maureen Cracknell. I’d choose C, B, and A — in that order.

  36. Emily June 29, 2018 at 5:10 pm #

    I love me some Kaffe Fassett! And I love that bundle #1!!

  37. Mary D July 1, 2018 at 10:13 am #

    I love Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner fabric designs. And I love batik fabrics, such colors and patterns. I would be happy with all or any of these sets you are offering for there is something to be made from all, but B would offer me a chance to make a quilt for one of my brothers.

    • Carole Lyles Shaw July 5, 2018 at 9:08 am #

      I’m making a quilt for a friend using Anna Maria Horner print right now! I’ll post a photo when it is done.

  38. Liz July 2, 2018 at 1:20 pm #

    Virginia Findlay Wolfe is a favorite designer of mine. My first block was from using her 15 minutes of play method. Either A or B stash would be terrific! I’m enjoying your Fibonacci info.

    • Carole Lyles Shaw July 5, 2018 at 9:03 am #

      Thanks Liz! 15 minutes of play is so much fun and a great way to loosen up. It’s also a great way to make blocks for charity quilts.

  39. Mary Okruhlik July 4, 2018 at 1:21 pm #

    I really like all the Kaffe Fassett Collective designers. I would choose C.

  40. Christine goldschmidt July 5, 2018 at 8:04 am #

    I really like Kaffe Fassett and Tula Pink and love batiks. I am working on my 40 year stash and at least 50 unfinished projects. Time to give some to charity. I would love A or B.

    • Carole Lyles Shaw July 5, 2018 at 9:02 am #

      Keep going Christine! As you know, it is so rewarding to give quilts away, especially to organizations that help children and women in difficult circumstances. That’s what our Guild supports and we love it.
