Quilt Fabric Plans : :

Hooray! I finished my qayg quilt last night and I can't wait to photograph it! However, the weather this morning is very much like the morning I froze attempting to take some pics of my Glimma Quilt, lesson learned -- I'm waiting!  And instead, I spent the last hour making some new quilt plans! Want to see what I have in mind?

Lovely piles, aren't they?! Now my only problem is that I cannot decide which to cut into first. What do you think ?? Help!!

Do you already have a pattern in mind ?

I love the Tsuru bundle and am thinking to get a few prints so my vote goes to Tsuru !

Kathleen said...

I love the colors and patterns of the first set Micromod!

Lisa said...

MicroMod & Essex Linen. I would jump on that in a hurry and make the fabric in the top left corner of the picture the MAIN focus. I love that piece of fabric... Send me your scraps!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I do! For the Tsuru I have been wanting to make something with framed centered and off-centered squares. I'm always inspired by one of my favorite quilters Faith @Fresh Lemon Quilts, she does this often and I always love it!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

That's why I bought extra of that print! I love it!!

Elsa said...

My vote ~ Micromod and Essex Linen! What's the pattern you have in mind?
I've got yards of the black Essex Linen ~ love that stuff!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I'm really wanting to so something improv, since these are so modern to me? What do you think?? I''m open to suggestions! :)

I have some more of this minen in my cart at Pink Castle, while she is having her sale. I'm trying to pinch my pennies, though... it's so hard to resist!!

Kristan said...

Oooh, fantastic piles, Maureen! I don't believe I've seen anyone do anything with Tsuru yet, so that gets my vote.

The Slow Quilter said...

I would use the Tsurut & Pure Elements, the colors are calling my name to be something. All of the fabrics are fantastic, I think I would have the same problem.

Jean(ie) said...

OOH, tough to choose. I love the Micro Mod and the Tsuru! We haven't seen a lot of navy blue going around, be different and use the Tsuru!

Marija said...

Oooh...tough one indeed! But the colors of Tsuru really jumped at me - I think that at this time of the year when everything is mostly white and pale, I start craving colors...ha, ha!
Also, I just played a bit more with my Squares and Shadows design in EQ and these would be so perfect for that! If you need a pattern to get you going just let me know - it is all written up (since I did teach it in my LQS) and blocks can be 3 different sizes.
Hmm..now I have to go look for that Tsuru fabric...;)

petoskystone said...

The upper left MicroMod print fascinates me (kind of like a lava lamp, I just want to keep staring at it.....). That bundle really wants to be first! :)

capitolaquilter said...

fabulous eye candy. Love the Micro Mod and Linen

Abby Marie said...

I love the Tsuru and Pure Elements.

Shan said...

I say the Tsuru mixed with the Essex linen.

Laura V said...

I vote the Micro Mod and Essex Linen. I love that combination! I need to add more Essex Linen to my stash.

Jessica Pyykkonen said...

I think Tsuru. I love the Micromod and those are the colors I generally tend towards, but I am loving that Tsuru. My vote is for Tsuru.

Happy in red said...

So so lovely... just swim in them ;-)

eholst said...

Tsuru has my vote, too :)

Chris S said...

Micromod!

That Tsuro bundle is beautiful. I want some too

Sarah said...

Tsuru all the way!!! Love those colors so much! =D

Debora Exum said...

Tsuru gets my vote, with Micromod pulling in as a very close second. Love the Essex linen with the Micromod.

java diva said...

I would have to see the pattern to decide between MicroMod and Tsuru. They are both equally fab. Sorry, simpatico.

mascanlon said...

Tsuro just calls to be with those Pure Element pals. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Mitzi said...

Micromod gets my vote!

Cheryl Arkison said...

You have your hands on Tsuru already?! Lucky lady.

syfalkenstein said...

Micromod, for sure!

blocksandmore said...

On dreary day like the one I have here, I'd be cutting into Simpatico. Have fun : )

Danny Heyen said...

Smart lady! I wouldn't go out in the cold either! Sorry. I'm no help here. I would love ALL those lines! Haven't seen much done with Tsuru yet, so that could be a very inspirational quilt, but I LOVE Simpatico. So light and airy and lovely.

Meghan Anhalt said...

MicroMod and Essex Linen!! The moment I saw MicroMod I knew I had to have some. I would love to see what you create using these fabrics! Will have to place an order for some soon :)

Kelly O. said...

the simpatico feels like spring to me!

Karen P. said...

I love the rich colors of the Tsuru stack!!

Gretchen said...

tsuru is so happy! Actually all are beautiful.

Cheryl said...

My vote is for something by Cloud 9 Fabrics!! LOL

gloriajanine said...

Definitely the Tsuru....I cannot WAIT to see the end result!! Have fun!

krazgrl said...

Ohhh...I just got the MicroMod and I LOVE that Essex Linen with it. YUM-O! My hubs has mentioned a quilt and I thought the MicroMod might be a good one for him. Yes/No?? Can't wait to see what you do with yours.

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Yes, definitely!! It was designed by a guy, Rob Bancroft, and I think it works perfect for a man-quilt! It does has purple, but paired with the black, grey, orange, and teal it's very manly!! :)

Kelster H said...

I cant wait to see the finished quilt Maureen!

I'd pick the Micromod & Essex Linen to cut in to personally! Lovely fabric!

Had a delivery of new fabric today! So yummy :)

CitricSugar said...

Micromod & Essex (but their all gorgeous). Just tons of potential there. Excited to see what you do with it all!

Heidi Staples said...

I'm just drooling over that stack of Tsuru. I can't wait until those lovely prints are available!

Elizabeth said...

Micromod and Essex linen. Can't wait to see what you do with them! eliz.i@sympatico.ca

Matt and Robyn Conners said...

Wow, wow, wow! They are all great! I am torn between the Micromod and the Tsuru. I think it all depends on the pattern. Can't wait to see what you come up with

Mar GarcĂ­a said...

Micromod is awesome!

Jess said...

My vote is for Micromod. It feels wintery to me so now's the time to do it (am I the only one who does this?). The Tsuru is also nice, but you know I love linen, so once you threw that in the mix, I had to vote Micromod. All lovely piles though, you can't really make a wrong choice.

Jan Gunter said...

I love the Simpatico!! But all the fab fabrics are lovely!!! Can't wait to see what you make with them!!!

I'd go with option #2 to make it feel more like spring!

Tammy said...

I am so drooling over all that fabulous fabric....I think I would start with some fo the Simpatico.. How beautiful those colors are...conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

MoeWest said...

I would like to see what you do with the Micromod and Essex Linen. I need to make a manly quilt by July and I'm looking for inspiration.

Salley said...

Well I love the Essex linen and the Pure Elements...so I am no help at all!

kbzelazny said...

I seem to be outvoted here, but I'd love to see what you do with the Simpatico!

mherath said...

I think the Tsuru would make a beautiful quilt. Really like all the bundles.

Annette said...

I think I'm in the minority, but I love the Simpatico. They're all gorgeous though!!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I decided to start with the Tsuru! I'm just two blocks in and I'm already loving it with the Pure Elements, I'm excited!!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Thanks Jan!! I have decided on a pattern for both the Tsuru and MicroMod and ended up cutting into the Tsuru first! What pattern would you suggest for Simpatico? I'd love any suggestions, I still can't decided?! :)

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Thanks!! This morning I did have a solid quilt pattern idea for both the MicroMod and Tsuru collection, not Simpatico, so I decided to start with Tsuru. I'm so glad I did, I'll be sharing it soon!! :)

natski said...

Tsuru, those colours are lovely :)although sometimes I'll save my favourite thing to last so that you've got something to look forward to

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I felt the same way about MicroMod! When Beth from Stash Fabrics suggested it for our giveaway the other week, when I saw the photo of it, I went right ahead and used her coupon code to buy myself this bundle with the Essex. It's such a special and unique collection. I think my husband and boys will love a MicroMod quilt, too, which is always nice! :)

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Me too on the linen with the MicroMod!! I bought a couple yards of it and an extra 1/2 yard of the Tick Tock print on the left. I'm thinking something very modern and improv for that quilt, but yes Tsuru is first!!

selfsewn said...

Easy...tsuru x

Nancy said...

I love the MicroMod patterns and colors. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

**nicke... said...

oh i would have a hard time deciding also! please tell me you chose tsuru though! if not you probably should reconsider! xoxoxo

Allison said...

TSURU!!
