Oh I have to pick just one?? I think I will go with the Simplicity line of fabric, just because I am dying to see it in real life!

Claudia said...

Dennis surprised me with a purple hydrangea potted plant this weekend. The lavendar hydrangea table runner kit will be perfect for me to put it on.

Laura said...

I'm with Claudia - I love the lavender hydrangea table runner kit! The design is adorable and the colors are cheery. This one is going on my Christmas wish list!

azkimbo said...

I couldn't just pick one... I love 3. Prairie Paisly, Dandelion Girl and Simplicity. I can already picture them made up in quilts. Charms and Jelly Rolls are my new craze. Thanks for Sharing!

Carol said...

I'm looking forward to the Za Za collection. I love the colors and flower prints - and dots! How can you go wrong with dots?

Jen said...

I've got to say that the Two Young Street Collection by Prints Charming wins it for me, only just (behind Strawberry Lemonade by Me & My Sister Designs).

Simplicity Jelly Roll
3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics
The 3 sisters jelly roll collection is my favorite. Not only because I am excited about seeing it, but because I have 2 other sisters, besides myself, and this quilt will be going to my sister who is battling a rare form of cancer, and is not doing well at this time with her chemo,ect. This quilt will be made in honor of my " sissy", one whom I cherish as my best friend, and confidante..

Frances said...

Oh my goodness.....there are too many to pick just one! I suppose either Bluebonnet Trail or Star Spangled Banner Quilt.

phyllis said...

What a blast from the past !!!! The Hemming House Jelly Roll Tin is way similar to the kind of case I used to keep my curlers in. (I'm telling my age, aren't I?) well, girls... I still remember rolling my hair at night and sleeping on those dreadful curlers ! Every Night !!!! My mom gave me an old overnight case and thats what I kept everything in. (thanks for the memory)

Anyhow....I fell in love with Waters Edge at first sight. But how can we pick just one? Next I need the Giggles flannels. mmmm warm quilts for my grandbabies. Hurry Spring and get here.

alicia said...

i'm looking forward to the Friends & Flowers Collection by Mary Engelbreit for Moda Fabrics - I love the bright colors - and the simplicity of the lines and dots...

Barbara said...

I love the "Friends and Flowers" fabric line by Mary Engelbreit for Moda Fabrics. The colors and prints in the fabrics make me feel happy and cheerful. They will make several projects come alive. Thank you for letting us see the coming fun.

debbymom said...

Okay, it's between ZaZa by Erin Michaels and Mix & Mingle by Sandy Gervais. I think it's because of the greens and browns and the simple, chunky, geometric shapes of the "nature" patterns. Or maybe its because my two teenaged girls gravitate toward toward the green/brown/orange hues and I have a built in fan club of any project I finish.

TerryH said...

Oh my Gosh! Are you sure...only
one?? My Favorite would be the
Bluebonnet Trail since we are in
Texas. But Strawberry & Lemonade or even Maypole are sure to get you
into that Springtime, early Summer
Mode..I can hardly wait!!

windycindy said...

Hello! I like a lot of the coming soon items. If I had to choose one right this second, it would be the
"Lodge Bear Paw Runner Quilt Kit."
The 2008 Quilt Club Project! Please enter me in your contest. Thanks, Cindi

jami said...

I am brand new to the quilting world. i found your site through web searching. I love it and go to it everyday to explore. Picking one is hard, but I think I will go with Star Spangled Quilt because it looks like something a beginner could handle. Can you ever have too much fabric?????

Nancy said...

Wildflowers! I'm usually not a big floral fan, but this collection is outstanding! Really pretty selection of flowers! Love it!

Lisa said...

The spring 3 Sisters lines are always wonderful, and Simpliciy is no exception. I think it will work up beautifully in the quilt I am planning for my Mom. I also just love the Giggles Flannels!

Stchsluv@aol.com said...

I am absolutely swooning over them all!! It's so hard to pick just one because I have dreams for so many of them. Right now I am re-decorating my sunporch and can see a quilt out of Prairie Paisley gracing the back of the rocker. . . so for now it's Prairie Paisley!

Vicky said...

Just one? Okay!

My favorite is PrairiePaisley- SimplicityAtWatersEdgeDandelionGirl-HemmingHouseStrawberryLemonade- SweetEscapeMotherGooseFriend. Whew!! Say THAT three times!! And the reason I like them -- they inspire me!!

Kathleen said...

I love the Wee Play. I have a brand new granddaughter and I am always thinking of her so these fit wonderfully with my thoughts! :)

Patricia said...

I love everything on your website; I check it out everyday just to look at all of the pretty fabrics.The ZaZa collection especially appeals to me because the colors are so pretty and cheerful. It would be fun to put pieces of that collection into a quilt.

MaryLou said...

My, My, what fun trying to decide which one I like the best. After much going back and forth, has to be Daydreams by Deb Strain. Love all the colors, green,blue,pinks,brown and the designs. This would make a stunning quilt just for me. Can hardly wait until it is available.

Kathy said...

Wow, so hard to pick just one. Thimbleberries Lakeside and Lodge Bear Paw quilts and runners are great. The triple play and Star Spangled Banner quilt and tacle runner are also right up there. The Maypole and Prairie Paisley quilt kits also caught my eye. the lavendar Hydrangea is definetely in the running, but if I had to pick just one I think I would have to go with the Heritage Quilt kit, although I really like working with the jelly rolls, they are so fun, fast and easy! Boy, how can you stop at one????

Traci said...

I can't wait to dance around the Maypole charm fabrics. I have just
the perfect pattern for that collection...How many month's until
March????

Kathy said...

I am just in love with the dandelion girl collection by fig tree quilts.....even the name is just too cute!!

Gwen said...

Love Simplicity by 3 Sisters - love all material by 3 Sisters!! I can already see the quilt hanging in my dining room! Love it, love it, love it! Also love Hemming House and Water's Edge, Dandelion Girl and Garden Inspiration by Kansas Troubles - I could go on and on - lovely, lovely fabrics!!!

Kim said...

I can't decide between the new Mary Englebreit or the American Jane, both are really fun, I love the colors and the prints in both!

tklauser said...

Browsing through fabric stores has always been a form of therapy for me. Tonight I came home after admitting my 86 year old mother to the hospital and I needed to unwind. What a treat to find all your wonderful new fabrics.I particularly loved the Hemming
House Collection, it looks like it will make up great for a very traditional quilt. Thanks for the
lift.

Barb Mcf said...

It's so hard to only pick one item from so many lovely fabrics. I especially love the wide variety of Jelly Rolls and the Strawberry Lemonade one from Me and My Sister Designs really caught my eye. I do lots of strip piecing and the jelly rolls really fill the bill

Carol said...

I will have to go with the "Wee Play" by American Jane. The reason I picked that one is because that is the one that made my "creative juices" flow it is a little bit 30'ish, but with a little more warmth than the usual 30's and it is cheerful!

Lori said...

If I had to choose just one, I would pick the Friends & Flowers Collection by Mary Engelbreit. I could see a really fun quilt or even a pretty apron (or both) out of that fun fabric. Thanks for the sneak peak!

Kim West said...

Being a transplanted Texan (a military spouse living in Hawaii for now) I definately can't wait for "Bluebonnet Trail" to come out for a reminder and a taste of home.

Lillian said...

Wow. I really like the Wee play american Jane fat quarters. The colors are so vivid and cheery. I'm always attracted to that.

Sandy said...

At Water's Edge would have to be my favourite. I think Barb and Alma read my mind. Finally, the fabric range with which I can create a simply pieced quilt which will be right at home in a seaside cottage.

While I am commenting, thanks Kimberley for a TRULY WONDERFUL online quilt store. I live in Australia and your store keeps me up to date with all the lovely new ranges and your service has always been exceptional!

Bronwyn said...

'Maypole' is my favourite! The colours sing and dance to me.

sheila said...

Wow!! Lots of beautiful things on that page! I pick the Heritage Quilt Kit by Fig Tree. Love that quilt and those fabrics.
Sheila

Eileen said...

Strawberry Lemonade looks like a lot of fun! Can't wait!

Deb said...

My favorite would be Mix and Mingle.
I love the fall colors and all the different designs in the line.

Karen said...

Urban Indigo is my favorite because I love blues and tiny prints.

quiltqueen said...

I absolutely LOVE the new Cover Story II collection. I loved the first set and the new one is fabulous! I'm looking forward to making wallhangings and my dad is going to make wooden frames and hangers for them so I can sell them and buy more fabric and quilt stuff. A family project is ALWAYS a great thing.

quiltqueen said...

Kitty Cucumber!!!!! Do you know how long I've waited for this?! I'm jumping up and down with excitement! I'll be the first one in line for this collection! I feel like a kid that's just gotten the best Christmas present EVER!

annette said...

This is WAY to hard a decision to make - and only one cup of coffee in the system!!! Gotta say that Dandelion Girl and Water's Edge are my very favourite with Za Za right up there. My girls are raving about Posh and Two Young Street. Truly this is a spectacular "coming soon" section. SOOOO Many wonderful selections.

Anita said...

I love the Mary Engelbreit Friends and Flowers Collection. I love her colors and designs. I have several of her fabrics.

craftymama said...

Friends and Flowers by Mary Engelbreit definitely hmmm...or is it Wee Play? I love them both.

jlk said...

Can I just say that I love them all? I think my favorite would be the new Chez Moi line. Very modern and fun.

Sewbaby said...

I have to agree...how on earth can I pick just one!! I do believe that I will be fabric rich in the upcoming year...fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop. I love "All You Need is Love" by Deb Strain..now do I need 2 Jelly Rolls or the Fat Quarter Collection?? HMMMM.

Hugs,
Traci

JoAnna said...

I am a sucker for anything Moda makes ...Simplicity, Dandilion Girl and Mix & Mingle are my favs.

Juliann in WA said...

If I have to pick just one it would be the Dandelion Girls fabrics. I am so enchanted by those beautiful, warm fabrics - makes me think of a lazy summer day with time to look at the clouds and read a good book in the backyard.

MaMa said...

It's really hard to pick just one, but I love the Friends & Flowers Collection Mary Engelbreit for Moda Fabrics. I've always been a big fan of her designs.

Vickie E said...

There are several that I will buy. I suppose I LOVE the Urban Chicks' "Swell"...jealous of all the ladies that bought it at market! haha

Kenith said...

Such lovely things are on the way for us. I think my favorite from all of these is Prarie Pasily. It is nice to see red, white and blue that isn't only patriotic or Americana.
Kenith

Darlene said...

It has to be Dandelion Girls for it's softness but in the BOLD category it would have to be Maypole.

Amanda said...

I can't wait for Red, White, & Bold by Sandy Gervais to come out. I have a friend whos husband has spent the past 15 months in Iraq and I want to make something for her from this line as a thank you for the what her and her husband have been doing.

nicole said...

Well picking just one thing is super hard, since I'd pretty much take them all. But, I do really love the new line Dandelion Girl by Fig Tree. I love her fabric lines, and the prints in this one are just so cute. Also I can't wait to see Simplicity by 3 Sisters. Another favorite!!! I'm also in love with Jelly Rolls. They are so so fun.

Jeanne said...

I agree it's difficult to pick just one. I love the Simplicity line. The colors are always so pretty. I'm also one of three sisters. :-)

Frances said...

I love the Giggle Girls Flannel collection. I'm always looking for interesting new flannels and theis looks great.

Carol L. said...

You weren't kidding about all the great stuff coming soon. I love so many things, but if I have to pick just one I would say I absolutely love the new Mary Engelbreit Friends & Flowers Collection. I've always been a ME fan!

Rani said...

I can barely pick just one. I think I'll go with Giggles for Girls, just because it is always great to have baby quilt fabrics on hand. =)

Maria said...

I am so sunk!!! I love all of Moda. Send me one of each!!!

Hedgehog said...

What a great idea! I love the new April Cornell fabrics - Maypole and Maypole Plaids, especially. My mom is grieving the loss of her local April Cornell store, so I'd love to make her something with them. I have a great idea for those monkey fabrics, too!

jcsquilter said...

I love the Simplicity line, both the print and plaids. They would look wonderful in some of Brenda Riddle's (Acorn Quilt and Gift Co.)
new patterns. I also love Garden Inspirations, because I have already made two quilts with the Kansas Troubles fabrics.

Pat said...

So many beautiful fabrics coming ... So many wonderful quilts to sew... March promises to be a great month for fabric lovers, but there is plenty between now and then to sink your fingers into. February looks pretty wonderful, too. I've been just waiting for this month for Urban Indigo to be ready for sale, but now I may have a new "coming soon" favorite: Dandelion Girl! Best hurry up and finish my Allspice Tapestry quilt and the my Yuletide Blessings projects. I just love the soft colors and pretty patterns from my favorite designer, Fig Tree Quilts.

PamKittyMorning said...

Ohh Kimberly, you make it so impossible! I love the URBAN CHIKS (have I mentioned I know the chiks) and the new Mary E stuff looks wonderful, and Susand Branch.. well how can we choose?

Spencer Family said...

I seriously can't pick just one. I'm excited to see ME's line. I loved her stuff growing up. Also, Daydream and ZaZa both look really fun too!

Swt'Peach Fashions of all Kinds said...

I love the "Friends and Flowers" fabric line by Mary Engelbreit, as well as the ZaZa lines and the Red, White and Bold line, but he ME lines would be my top.

Robin said...

Oh there are so many things that I like. But my favorite is the hydrangea table runner kit. I love flowers and have alot in my yard.

Becky said...

What a challenge! I kept going from one line to another. At this very minute my favorite is Prairie Paisely by Minick and Simpson. I just love the reds and blues. In addition, I have a soft spot for paiselys and roses. Looks like a fabric line designed just for me.
Thanks for a wonderful website and a wonderful blog!!!

valerie said...

I'm putting the Hemming House Jelly Roll tin on my wish list. It would look great on the shelf in my sewing room.

Patsy said...

I love the Bluebonnet Trail fabrics. Reminds me of the Hill Country in the spring.

Goneaussiequilter said...

So many good ones coming! I have to say Dandelion Girl is my favorite for the soft colors and I even love the name. I also love Maypole and the quilt kits made with it for their striking look.

Judith said...

I just love the simplicity quilt kit. But also all the other modafabriclines I just love. Almost want to buy another jellyroll as I love working with them a lot.

Kati said...

If I have to pick just one -- the Posh Collection. I love the new graphic prints that are out.

Dee said...

Well, if you can't beat the Dandylions in your yard, you might as well enjoy them in your sewing room - LOVE LOVE FIG TREE GIRLS!
dEE

Ms. Jan said...

How in the world can I choose only one? I guess if I have to, it would Posh by Chez Moi, but Flirtations and All You Need is Love would be second and third.....

Anne said...

Love the Posh range but leaning towards Two Young Street because I've got a 16yo who would love the funkiness of it.
Anne

brynne_knits said...

I love the Wee Play fabric! It looks like it would make such a fun quilt.

Jeannine said...

I am really looking forward to the new Prints Charming collection. I have some from the Follow Your Imagination series (working on a baby quilt with it). They have the lovliest prints and silky smooth fabric.

Tamara said...

I have to say my favorite thing to come has to be the new line by April Cornell called Maypole prints. I seem to have an addiction to charms and this charm pack is bright and Charmingly beautiful. ;-)

Of course I have already preordered Strawberry lemonade. So I guess that is two favorite lines that are coming soon.

g hesko said...

Well...i thought i would have no problem picking one out and therefore could help you! WRONG! First the rose one....then the sand and surf...then the quilt kits! Help..i am officially indecisive on which one to pick! They are all beautiful and i could be happy sewing with anything...after...i am a fabriholic!

You have a great site by the way!

Renee said...

Well, if I have to pick just one, I guess it will be Maypole. It just reminds me of being in sixth grade and doing the Maypole. The girls would have to wear skirts and white blouses and the boys had to wear dark pants and white shirts with the criss cross ties with the snap in the middle. And they had to be red, green, or blue. And the crepe paper that was used to wrap the Maypoles were in the same colors. It was quite fun. Unfortunatly, they don't do it anymore. The kids are really missing out.

RedHeadedOkie said...

Without a doubt it's the Daydreams Collection for me! I've asked to have a jellyroll reserved...I'll be so glad when I hit the LOTTO...

CreativeOutletDesigns said...

Ooooh! I'm definately looking forward to the friends and flowers line from M.E. I'm a sucker for dots and her colors are so great!

Love the day dreams collection as well!

Auntie Darla said...

There's too much to mention!! This if the first time I've been to your site/blog.... LOVE them both... Will be back often!!! Is it 2008 yet?? :) Ok .. Is it Monday yet... the Jelly Roll is mine right? :)

LZ said...

I am absolutely in love with the Prarie Paisley line of fabrics. It makes me think of a warm homey porch and time to visit with friends. I can't wait to use it in something for my home.

LoveCrafting said...

All I can say is WOW! There are SO many great collections coming! I guess I'd pick the Posh Collection by Chez Moi for Moda. I really like the brights,and the stylized paisleys. I can see a bright, cheerful and happy wallhanging made from this collection. Very beautiful. Dandelion girl is the *perfect* soft color collection, though!! I would definitely make a bed quilt (and table runner, and tote bag, and, and, and...) from this collection.

Corey said...

Heavens to Betsy!!--I love them all! A girl can never have too much fabric. I especially love Simplicity--it reminds me of Paris Flea Market meets Seaside Rose, two lines that I loved. I love the bright summery colors of both Two Young Street and Summer Lemonade. Swell looks "swell" LOL as does Prairie Paisley & I can't wait for Verna's line of fabric to come out--I already purchased one of her patterns after reading about her here. So, after saying all of that, it all looks fab!--Can't wait!

Kari said...

Daydreams and Za Za since I have to pick, but for the record I love all of them!

Pauline said...

I really like the Two Young Street Collection by Prints Charming for Marcus Brothers. The prints are so bright and happy!

Pauline said...

Tracy said...

Picking just one was impossible so I narrowed it to three...hope that is okay??? First up is the new Simplicity line by Three Sisters..LOVE IT! Next, Swell from Urban Chicks. I can't wait to play with those fabrics. And, last but not least, Posh from Chez Moi. I am stopping now lest I carry on about the other 3-4 things that are sure to be favorites too!

wendylynne said...

I LOVE the blackbird designs jellyroll. They design the perfect fabrics for my favorite kind of projects.

sheddy said...

I can't wait for the new Mary Engelbreit fabric. Her stuff always makes me smile.

Valerie said...

I have been a huge Mary fan since high school, for over 10 years now, so I have to go with the Friends and Flowers as my favorite.

Auntie Darla said...

Ok... I think its the ME of MODA Line.... Love Mary E's stuff... Cant wait!!!!!

Auntie Darla said...

When will the Mary E line be here ... is it 2008... Its better than Christmas!!!

Sue said...

I love Za Za and Maypole Plaid...the colors make me happy!

Christina said...

My favorites are; Swell, Daydreams, and simplicity. It is exciting all the new and up and coming fabric. My husband will be mad at money that I would like to spend. :)

Debbie said...

Pick one?? No way! But I'm glad you had this contest - I hadn't been on the Coming Soon page and there was so much great stuff to look at.

Must Haves: Dandelion Girl; Wee Ones and Maypole collection sure looks like it has possibilities.

iSew said...

The fabrics just keep getting better. I'm going to go with wee play because I am completely addicted to these vintage kids prints. I can't wait!

lilfish said...

I love the "All You Need is Love" fat quarter bundle. Those colors are just yummy!

Ethne said...

Perfect fabric for 'Butterfly Garden' quilt from Leannes House -
Simplicity Fat Quarter Bundle

Lillian said...

Difficult to pick just one, so many wonderful fabrics! It has to be either Simplicity because of its lovely soft colors or Prairie Paisley because I like red, white and blue.

EmmyLizzy said...

Strawberry Lemonade - amazing quilting possibilities!

Kimberly said...

I would have to say that the Posk collection and the Wee plays are my favorite. But there are someother collections that I have patterns in mind for!

Jackie said...

I absolutely love the Two Young Street by Prints Charming!! I am a brights girls and love their fun prints...can't wait to see them!!

Dianne said...

love everything figtree--both patterns and fabrics...my little "yellow"girl will love the new dandelion fabric

Lina L. said...

Only one? I would pick Friends and flowers by Mary Engelbreit...

Lina L.

Lina L. said...

Ooops, Sorry, forgot to comment "why".. I picked Friends and Flowers makes me smile and very HAPPY...

Lina L.

Lisa said...

Friends and Flowers- It was sooo hard to pick just one! The reason I picked Friends and Flowers is the fact that I believe friends bring so much into ones life. I have a beautiful group of women in my life that I'm so thankful for.

Patty said...

I would love to hear how other quilters like the rolls of 2 1/2 inch jelly rolls. I really get excited about trying them but want to hear what others have to say. The Fat Quarter Shop has best selection.

Becky S. said...

I love all of the beautiful new fabrics-especially Simplicity by Moda. I love 3 Sisters designs and the combination of aqua and pink.

Helen said...

It's difficult to choose, but I would say the Simplicity Quilt Kit
is my favorite and has been since you first described it after Quilt Market. I have loved every fabric line by 3 Sisters and I am looking forward to being able to buy the Simplicity line. Next favorite would be Hemming House, Prairie Paisley, and Red White & Bold.

lunachick said...

I would have to pick Posh by Chez Moi. I have bought both their other charm packs and LOVE the funky colors! I also know my mother in law will just LOVE Dandelion Girl because she has been talking about making a quilt using neutrals, so there you go! Too bad we have to wait until Feb and March for these goodies! Can I just have one of each please? Haha
By the way, LOVE the blog and LOVE the Fat Quarter Shop. Am cutting out my Frenchy Bag and can't wait to assemble it. (Bought it from your Friday Special in September)

Terri said...

What I super web site. I loved the recipes. I work and love fast easy recipes so that I have time for the important things like quilting and piecing quilts!

Patches said...

Well, I'm ready to dive into "At Water's Edge" by Blackbird Designs.
Love it!
