  31. Letty | 7th Feb 11

    Thank you for sharing so much about yourself! I love your fabrics more than any other designer out there. I’ve made a lot of Fig Tree quilts. My last one was Salt Water Taffy made with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I’m a huge fan!

  32. Letty | 7th Feb 11

    Also – I have visited your site at least once a week forever. Now I’ve got your blog on a reader and it is showing up right on my iGoogle homepage!

  33. Suzanne | 7th Feb 11

  34. Deborah | 7th Feb 11

    I just love your fabric and can’t wait to get started. Right now I can’t make up my mind which one
    to get first. The colors are wonderful………….

  35. Jennifer Gwyn | 7th Feb 11

    I have to pace myself in viewing your website. I would go broke if I gave in to all my desires to buy your fabric lines. I haven’t been able to resist Buttercup or the Strawberry Fields though! I have signed up for the Mystery BOM through FQS and I can’t wait to see if I get the Dancing Dollies kit (I’m on the waiting list). I’ll have to put it together myself if you sell out. Not a problem! Love your fabric!

  36. Yvonne White | 7th Feb 11

    I recently made a quilt for my 18-month grandaughter from your fabrics and have purchased kits for more quilts. Just love your beautiful fabrics, and especially am excited about your Strawberry Fields collection. And the sit-upon pillow is just divine!
    Can hardly wait to add these fabrics and ideas to
    my quilting endeavors.

  37. Rhianne Dean | 7th Feb 11

    Oh I have to say my favorite color is the blue from the whimsy line. I used it to make a quilt last year that has quickly become a favorite. Thanks for the pillow talk!

  38. Prudence Lay | 7th Feb 11

    I LOVE this pillow and I LOVE buttons. Would love to have one of these tools…..

  39. Rhianne Dean | 7th Feb 11

    I’m back to let you know that I follow you in my google reader! It’s such a delight to see new posts, keep it up!

  40. Diane | 7th Feb 11

    This is my second entry – I really want one of those awesome prizes – I do follow your blog – love the ideas and crave that pillow with all those buttons! When I saw it, I knew I had to have one!! (one way or another!) Cover buttons are my favorite trim too – now I need one of those button makers to save poor hubby’s hands!

  41. Olivia Drake | 7th Feb 11

    Trying to figure out how to do this. Hopefully it will work. I love everything fig tree, the colors, patterns, pillow1! I did sign up for you email. I like the buttercup colors.

  42. Laura | 7th Feb 11

    I love your new line Strawberry Fields, cant wait to get them all!!! the buttons on the pillows are covered in,forklorique,Patisserie and Fig and plum and cornucopia…I hope this is where I was supposed to identify the buttons :/

  43. Pam | 7th Feb 11

    once again I love the fabrics and the pillow Keep up your lovely work

  44. lourdes | 7th Feb 11

  45. Conchita F. Brown | 7th Feb 11

    Love the new line Strawberry Fields! Love all your fabrics,colors and patterns. That’s a great tool for buttons. It’s my first time seeing it. Anything that makes our craft easy is great.

  46. Darlene | 7th Feb 11

    Love all your soft colors, the yellow is so soft and creamy. Also like Patisserie, yellow with red flowers,
    it is all so beautiful. When on the rare chance I get to see you at a quilt show, hard to pick out just one quilt kit, when you love them all.

  47. Donna Miller | 7th Feb 11

  48. glenda | 7th Feb 11

  49. glenda | 7th Feb 11

  50. Mary K | 7th Feb 11

    Beautiful fabric!!! Thanks for your creativity in design and color.

  51. Marianne Perry | 8th Feb 11

    To say what color I like best is a really hard one. So i wrote tyem down but them in my husbands hat and pulled out BUTTERCREAM. My husband just stood there shaking his head. I’m excited about the covered button tool. I really have to think about maybe getting it someday. Love your site. Marianne

  52. Pat | 8th Feb 11

    The yellow is my favorite color. I just ordered the pattern for the square pillow. Also you have such an exciting life and I wish I had a small bit of your talent for design.

  53. mary.harrison55@yahoo.com | 9th Feb 11

    I love all the soft colors, buat am especially partial to the yellow and cream colors.

  54. sandy koenig | 9th Feb 11

    I love the pillow talk and the button maker, my next tool to wish for

  55. Delcia | 9th Feb 11

    I love the buttery yellow in your fabric lines, especially in your new Strawberry Fields. Yellows sunny-up blues, corals, greens, almost anything. As a girl scout many moons ago, I made a sit upon with oilcloth and newspapers between the fabric pieces. Love the seat cushions!

  56. Jennifer Gwyn | 10th Feb 11

    There isn’t a collection that you have that I wouldn’t want to buy bolts and bolts of fabric. I only wish I could stay home and quilt all the time instead of having to do that thing called “work at a job” to pay for other non-necessities like food, gas, rent, etc… 🙂 Love your fabric, patterns and projects!
