The votes are in...

Thanks again to all of you who entered my Sew Mama Sew give away.

My inner bean counter decided to do a little tally of everybody's favorite new fabric lines for 2012. I sifted through all 418 comments to come up a top 15 list. Ready for the results? Here we go:

15. Winterkist by Monica Solorio-Snow - 9 votes

14. Riley Blake Chevrons (coming very soon to my Etsy shop!) - 10 votes

13. Tula Pink's The Birds & the Bees - 11 votes

12. Heather Ross' Nursey Versey - 13 votes

11. Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater - 15 votes

10. Mama Said Sew also by Sweetwater - 15 votes

5. Summersville by Lu Summers - 23 votes

4. Bonnie & Camille's Vintage Modern - 30 votes

3-1. We had a three way tie for first place. Lotta Jansdotter's Bella line received 31 votes.

Yes, I scored a fat quarter bundle of Bella at Sample Spree. I was planning to sell it but I don't think I can part with it!
Simply Color by Vanessa Christenson was also very popular with 31 votes (and her line was the buzz of Quilt Market if you ask me).

Bonnie & Camille's Marmalade line also received 31 votes.

Moda clearly dominates the list with 6 out of the 15 fabric lines on the list. And speaking of Moda, they rolled out a new product at Quilt Market called Candy. They're packs of 42 - 2.5" squares. I think they would be fabulous for granny square blocks, postage stamp quilts, and patchwork all around. They retail at $4 each. I'm thinking about ordering Candy packs of Marmalade and Simply Color for my Etsy shop. What do you think? Would you buy these little squares?


  1. i'm making a large postage stamp quilt with 2.5" squares, and trying not to repeat fabrics, so those Candy packs sound like a good idea to me :)
