Wow! 282 comments! That is definitely a record for me. I’ll tell you who the winner is in a minute, but first I need to let you know the results of my survey.
You liked thirty-three different lines at The Intrepid Thread! Some people couldn’t decide and just liked them all. Quite a few people liked the bundles that Julie puts together. The line that got the most votes was Poetica, followed closely by Peak hour and Fruit Slice.
A lot of people said they also love Cosmos. A few people politely said the fabric perplexes them
There was a huge range of suggestions for what I should make: bags, quilts, place mats, table runners, skirts, Christmas tree skirts, pillow cases, kimonos, aprons and a landscape. Some people thought I should do up my sewing room, kitchen or living room with the fabric. Billie Bee suggested I make her a beautiful quilt
Some people suggested specific patterns I could make; and there were lots of suggestions for types of blocks: hexies, zigzag, 1/2 square triangles, circles, strips, stars, chevrons, kaleidoscope, granny square, twister, rail fence, retro flower, snowball, pinwheel, D9P (I had to look that one up), diamonds, bento box,swoon, sudoku, schnibble, dresdens and circle in a star.
Many people felt that whatever I make it should have big blocks to show off the patterns in the fabric. Twenty-seven people voted for me to make a quilt and fifteen thought I should make a bag. The block that got the most votes is the Swoon block.
Thanks for all the fabulous suggestions! I will be looking into them more closely once the fabric arrives (no day after ordering delivery here – if it comes in a week I am more than happy).
The winner is ….(sorry I couldn’t get the little picture to copy)
