I like the colors in the New Day line.

Thanks for a wonderful give away!!

Rafael's Mum said...

Yay Uber!! Way to go! Wonderful giveaway. I like them all! and really can't decide so am defering.. If I don't win, I don't have to decide... If I DO...I'll have some hard decision making to do :-) Great stuff! Thanks for that!

Rachael said...

Oh man these are so awesome. This book has been on my desire list for quite some time. I love the Piney Woods collection.

PukBak said...

Uhh a giveaway :)

If I should be so lucky, I think I'm into New Day.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Lynne S of Oz said...

Ooh, thanks for the opportunity to enter another giveaway!
New Day I think for me - some good neutrally type colours to blend with brights :-)

Lynz said...

Man, I'm not sure I can choose. I think New Day may just pip the others to the post but I totally love them all. And I've been eyeing that book for the longest time!!

ladmquilter said...

Thanks for the great give away I Like either new day or fiesta the best but they are all wonderful. Thanks for the chance.

Tricia said...

Wow!!! Great giveaway. <3 that line of fabric especially in fiesta. Thanks for offering a great giveaway.

Little Miss Shabby said...

Awesome Giveaway! Way to kick things off with a bang. I suppose that I'll have to give a bit more thought to my favorite colorway--I had typed in fiesta and then backspaced remember the lovely grays/blues of new day--so now, I'm undecided.

Susan said...

*twirls flaming pinwheels extra fast* Oh, swoon! What a fun way to kick off the new quilt along, Pam, aren't you sweet!

Sign me up but don't expect me to choose a color line if I should be so lucky as to win- how could anyone pick between them? Huh? HOW? They are all so yummy.

Thanks for the chance, Pam. :)

bellaandmolly said...

I love them all so much and so hard to choose. I would take any one of them but New Day is my fav or wait maybe it is Fiesta...no New day.

DeeRoo said...

Oh my goodness Pam...aren't you sooooo generous!! Love, love, love them all but New Day is calling my name. That will give me more greys to put with the stack I am building for hubby's quilt!:) And I don't have any quilting books!!!

Thanks pal!:)

Tami Fulton said...

LOVE this fabric and I'd love to have the book too!! :) Piney Woods is my favorite, but I really like they all! :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

badlandsquilts said...

What a very generous giveaway, Pam! Thanks!

KQuiltyBee said...

I love the New Day colorway. What a wonderful giveaway. I promise I would use them all in the pinwheel quilt instead of my usual 2 or 3 fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

Greta said...

I love the New Day colors. Normaly I would be all about the feista but in this line there is just something about the New Day colors that make me HAPPY!

Now off to start making pinwheels, which I absolutely adore!! What a great pick for a quilt along :)

zarina said...

They are all gorgeous but I would choose new day.

I did start on a pinwheel quilt for myself and sister using one Wild Blossom layer cake. NO - wrong one. I used my overdyed fabric for those - I think I'll take it out and join in the fun which means more dyeing.

Christy said...

I love the muted colors of New Day! Although I love them all just about the same. :o)

Erika said...

The fiesta colors are very eye-catching!

And - I was just checking out her book at the bookstore the other day and I think I might have drooled!

Becca P. said...

Isn't this a beautiful line... It would certainly make gorgeous pinwheels. I think that the New Day color scheme would leave room for some serious contrast! ;)
Thanks for the chance to win.

One Shabby Chick said...

How fun - can't wait to start my pinwheel quilt! I love the Fiesta colorway - so pretty!

ircabbit said...

Woooot! I love these fabrics. I think New Day is for me. ;)

Kristan said...

Total toss up between New Day and Fiesta. You are so nice to be doing this! I think you may have to be elected Official Pinwheel Parade Grand Marshall!!

I'm a fiesta girl. Wish I could do this quilt along, but sewing my wedding dress must be the priority right now. Less than 3 months till the wedding!

Mandy Noble said...

I love the New Day line, thank you for such an amazing giveaway - so generous!

Patty said...

great giveaway...my favorite is the new day, but if I'd was at a store I'd have to have some of each colorway and then probably some thing else to go with it and then find just the right pattern and then...............

Cynthia said...

Man-o-man....what a tough choice! But, if someone locked me in a room & said I couldn't come out till I chose one - & ONLY one...I might just have to stay in there, locked up for a very long time! LOL!

OK....so I'd choose Fiesta. No-no, wait, change that to New Day because I LOVE the blues/gray/green combination...but then gotta love Piney Woods with the awesome yellow/green combo.

Ahhhhh heck, I hate when this happens! Anyone else having this much trouble choosing?????? Please, just throw away the key! LOL

Diane H said...

Piney Woods because it's springish!
I don't know - they are all fantastic! Thanks for throwing my name in.

thecraftingintrovert said...

Hi Pam,
I found you via Dana's blog:-)The Fiesta-colourway would make a lovely quilt for my daughter, who is into everything pink. Incidentally, the 12th of march is her 10th birthday, so winning the give-away would be a great present;-)
Thank you for this opportunity, have a nice day
Daniela
