I love the Figgy Four Patch tutorial.
I follow your blog and always look forward to your posts!
I really, really love retro fabrics. 1930's & 40's are my favorites....they remind me of the quilts that my great-grandmother made.
You had me click on each and every tutorial now, just in case I missed some in the bakeshop! lol!
I like the candybutton quilt and the little zipperbag best.
Here is my bloglink;
It has been a bit quiet lately for several reasons but if you scroll back a little (before the hols) there are almost daily posts (and a lot of the weather here, lol) (that was by request!). Hope you enjoy my blog.
my favorite tutorial of yours is the chenille hotpads! Hot hot hot!
my favorite fabrics are 30's reproductions! I love love love the quilt styles made in that era too!
I have been a follower and I love your tutorials. They are easy to follow and one of my favorites is the patriotic pinwheel table runner. Congrats on 600 posts.
I really like the reproduction fabrics of the 30s/40s.
My favourite fabric style... mmm... that is a hard one!! On the one hand I love romantic/pastels/rozes... On the other hand at the moment I am just in LOVE with Pure by Sweetwater, and, after initially not being too keen on Amy Butler's LOVE now have 2 full FQ stacks... It sort of grew on me.. In general love what Amy Butler does, and Sandi Henderson, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey and Joel Dewberry.. What would you call their style? Doing a 30's quilt too, but more like a one off. So... yeah... hard question!!!
genxquilters.com! Now at at new domain name!

I enjoyed your giant pin cushion tutorial and posted the one I made on my blog.
the crafty side
Chocolate Stars on the MBS is my favorite and I still want to make that one.
As far as fabric, I guess I like modern with a hint of vintage. Fig Tree Quilts, Sandi Henderson, Riley Blake etc...
Lately I have been leaning toward modern fabrics and geometrics but I love it all.
I like your Weekend Kitchen ensemble. I have just redone my kitchen and wanted to make some coordinates to my new curtains. Kathie L in Allentown
My favorite fabrics at the moment are the more modern designers. I've done a ton of civil war repro quilts and an trying something new. kathie L in Allentown
I like the candybutton quilt the best!
Hello Vickie ~ Congrats on reaching your 600th post.
I follow your blog and although I do have a contact name linked to a 'blog', I still haven't set mine up. I'm too busy reading everyone else's wonderful blogs and following my machine embroidery stuff.
My favorite style is Christmas fabrics!
My favorite tutorial so far is your Moda Bakeshop Auntie Tablecloth. It's a great tute and is just beautiful.
And i just realized when you're going to pull the winners... that's my birthday so I think I should get one of the prizes automatically. ;)
I like the simple strip baby quilt tutorial
My style? Oh gosh, that really varies depending on what I'm making. I do, however drool over some of the modern fabrics but I haven't bought any yet sadly.
Pick me! Pick Me!
Wow! Great giveaway! My blog:
I love the sugar cube pincushion tutorial, and the giant pincushion sew along!
i love all fabrics, hence my blog name - confessions of a fabric addict! But if I could only choose one, it would probably be modern fabrics! They are so whimsical and colorful!
And I blogged about your giveaway here:
Congrats on hitting 600 posts! Thanks for the giveaway. I love 'stuff'.
Favourite tutorial is for the yoyo mini quilt.
My favourite type of fabric right now is modern with a vintage influence ... such as the American Jane for Moda fabrics.
I love your windmill table runner.
I am definitely into the modern fabrics right now. So yummy and fresh colors!
Hello from Toronto. What a great giveaway.
I really don't have a name for my favourite fabric style - except batiks.
Thanks for having a giveaway
I love the lil zipper bag tutorial
I love Christmas & other holiday fabrics
I love alot of your tutorials, but the first I fell in love with was your Candy Buttons Quilt for the Moda Bake Shop. It was posted around the same time as I was really getting into quilting..because of that post I started following MBS & your blog!
Those quilted carrots are a hit. So easy and so effective. I plan on making some for a centre piece for our Thanksgiving which is coming up.
I loved your HST Tutorial.
I think you will have to copy and paste. Sorry.
I have always loved calicos.
I have posted about your giveaway. Thanks so much.
You may need a translator for my blog but you can always go through the pictures and guess what they mean :)
Oh, my favorite tutorial. It is definetely those half square triangles from leftovers. I am participating in the chubby stars quilt along and the main blocks are made like snowball block. And your tutorial saved my precious scraps and kept me from going insane from sewing together all the tiny scraps. Now I will have a big quilt top and a lot of little blocks that will be turned into a cute little baby quilt.
my favorite type of fabric to work with are modern fabrics....i just can't get enough of it, but once in awhile I'll see other fabrics I like too. So, as long as it's pleasing to my eyes, I like it!
I love the A Tisket A Tasket tutorial! So Cute!!!
Hi Vickie.....I love reading your blog and am amazed at how much you get done.
I am thinking I would like to try some Civil War fabrics.....I don't have any of those yet.
If I had to pick just one of your tutorials - it would be the Skinny Verna...very cute! It's on my list.
WOW, if all 640+ any passerby's leave 4 wordy comments like I tend to leave you are going to be busy.
Come by my blog and stay a little while, lots of freebies to be had if you like to stitch, a couple of tutorials, etc, just ignore the typos, grammar and spelling.

So if you still want decode and translate,lol There's also two giveaways to enter if you go before sunday other wise just one. I'm Cyndi at
When it comes to fabric style, I like the bright, fun stuff...like Merry & Bright, 12 Days of Chrismtas, Verna, Bliss - to name a few. I'm definitely a Moda Girl! LOL!
The giant pin cushion tutorial you did not too long ago was totally cool! I made a few and one was for my 600th post giveaway!
Okay here we go again.....Foget to mention............
CCONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 600TH POST! I just passed my 100th post (which has a special giveaway, hint, hint)not to long ago.
As far as my favorite tutorial....you 've always got cute things going on here..and you have so many tutorial you shared but the one I knew I had kept without even thinking about it was quilted carrots, sew, sew, cute and easy!
I don't really know what style you would call it, maybe modern? But I just love every one of Sandy Gervais fabrics. The reproductions of 1930's fabrics are also appealing to me. Must be the colors.
I love the little zipper bag. Took away my fear of zippers. The like the modern/retro fabrics.
Thanks for a great giveaway www.Marilizsmusings.blogspot.com
I love following your blog on Google Reader!
My FAV totorial is those marvelously easy pinwheels you made for the Patriotic Pinwheel Runner!

I LOVE Civil War fabric!!

i love your lil zipper bag tutorial.
songyueyu at gmail
i like japanese fabrics with cute prints.
Hi Vickie...Mary here from quilthollow.com :-)
Favorite tutorial is the sugar cube pincushion...still want to make that one! Favorite fabrics are repro/civil war...old and worn look. :-)
Congrats on all the post! It has been fun getting to know you and looking forward to seeing you in more magazines etc....get a book deal!
OK...I've got to have Fall into Fall on the blog until Sunday so will post after that...be sure to stop by for the giveaway at mine.
My blog address is:
I already have your sugar cube pincushion tutorial bookmarked in my to-do list, but now that I have looked around a bit more, I have decided that I also need to try the quilted carrots tutorial! Those would be perfect in a bowl or jar for a table or countertop decoration, and I have some oranges that would be PERFECT. Hmmm maybe I will get one done today or tomorrow!
My favorite fabrice style right now is patriotic! Making QOVs- second favorite is the 30's...Sandy
I don't have my own blog persay, but I do participate in this one pretty regularly and post to it:
I took a break from making blocks this summer; things were just too busy, but I'll be back on track this month. I joined about 2 yrs ago in an effort to use up scraps...I'm still battling the scrap bin...I love scraps and scrap quilts. Our theme this year is liberated blocks so that is stretching me out of my norm. Hope to see you there and maybe participate sometime.
Congrats on the 600 postings!
I like the yoyo mini quilt tute and I'm pretty sure I commented on that post when you put it up...I do have a thing for yoyos.
I like the zipper bag! I follow your blog....and it is a delight!
I'm into the more modern large prints lately, but not the bright colors. I like aquas and greens and the more muted shades of colors...I usually have to go shopping when I need a baby quilt done...babies seem to prefer the clear, clean bright colors...do my colors call me boring behind my back?????
My favorite has to be the Candy Buttons Quilt, love the circles and the colors you used.
Favorite fabric is anything with bright vibrant color, think Kaffe or Amy Butler.
I like the apple core table topper tutorial.
my blog: www.disconnectedstitches.blogspot.com
I don't know that I have a fabric style as I tend to make items for others and try to match up the look to them. But I do end up with a lot of brite jewel tones and michael miller prints.
Wow, what a great giveaway! I'd like to participate in it :)
My blog is : http://www.tatkis-mousehouse.blogspot.com

Congrats on 600 posts!
I don't have a blog, so I can't help you there. So I'll move on to the tutorial. I love the patriotic pinwheel runner the best, but all your tutorials are wonderful!
I blogged about your giveaway here:
I guess my favorite style of fabric is considered modern. I like bright colors and bold prints, and I also find that batiks tend to catch my eye alot too!
My absolute favorite fabric is 30's repros. They are so cheery!
Thanks for the chance to win!

I'm not sure I can pick a favorite tutorial. The Simple Strip Baby Quilt is one of my faves. Love its simplicity. If I ever have a GO! I'm definitely going to be trying the Apple Core Table Topper. The fabrics you picked really shine with the core shape (or vice versa :) But, my favorite tutorial has got to be the Patriotic Pinwheel Tablerunner. I love big pinwheels and I love making tablerunners.
Miss Punkie Pie sent me over too!
