  1. If I was to design my own material it would be burgundy with pinks running through it and little hearts everywhere. And what a wonderful giveaway.

  2. Samm, I NEED you to design that fabric - hilarious! I would use it everywhere...I'd recover my sofa with it and my chairs and make hotpads and a toaster cozy...I'd probably even make seat covers for my Car! Now get on it, in all your free time, and start designing!!! xo, Nan

  3. if i were to design my own collection, it'd be super colorful- think along the lines of flea market fancy. springy, with a vintage motif of some kind.

  4. samm, you may want to contact Spoonflower - I think you have a hit on your hands , lady !

    If I were to create my own fabric, it would be that elusive piece that I never seem to have in my stash on a Sunday afternoon - the one that would make the rest of the quilt pattern look absolutely together ... just the perfect color and pattern

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would start with a line that has pinks, greens, yellows, and reds, and would feature tulips and leaves and sunny looking swirls since I am in need of spring!

  6. What a fun question! And a hard one!! My taste are very wide and it depends on the time of day what I like. :) My all time favorite color combination is a soft pink and mint green, so maybe something floral, shabby chic with those colors and a touch of pastel blue and butter. Will be interesting to see what everyone says!

    PS...LOVE your fabric choice! I think every quilter around would buy it! :)

  7. I would love a gray back ground with yellow and white circles.....thanks for a great giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  8. I would love to design some very tasteful fabric with cool, soothing grays and aquas. Maybe a nice geometric spanish tile with little drawings of chemistry glassware hidden within the design. You know, beakers, flasks, funnels. Chemists can be classy.

    ReplyDelete
  9. It would be hard to decide but I think I'd start with all the jewel tones... ruby red, emerald green, deep sapphire blue, royal purple, peacock blue... in intricate designs with lots of color shading.... maybe a little gold or silver as well...

    ReplyDelete
  10. The closest I've come to thinking about this is last fall. I've embroidered some brightly colored dragonflies for a black and white quilt. When I was working on them, I decided I wanted a white backing with dragonflies all over it in the same colors as my dragonflies. I was on a road trip with my husband at the time and we discussed Spoonflower. After seeing the cost, I plugged 'dragonflies' into a fabric search engine and found "my fabric"!

  11. My design & pattern would change and go with whatever other fabrics I chose. Wouldn't that be lovely...

    Instead, I would choose light pink, with tiny rosebuds, multi-colored butterflies, cotton tuffs from cottonwood trees floating around, and a few wisps of clouds in the background....

    ReplyDelete
  12. May be some pink/peach floral/paisleys on a light cream background - boring, I know ;D

  14. mine would be a white with a swirly looking black speckles on it background with drumsets and drumsticks scattered about.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a wonderful question. I've actually been thinking on this one for awhile. I think I want an off white background (just bearly Not white), then I would love to have pin stripes of deep purple, navy blue, hunter green, and deep lemon yellow. In-between each stripe I would put gold and silver micro dots. This would be a good one for mini quilts (which I love).

  16. I've had this plan in my head for MONTHS! It would be cute little animals with very large eyes - starting off with the main character called "snake eyes.". I have this stuffed snake with huge google eyes and he is so cute and I can easily imagine a whole range of bulgy-eyed creatures hanging out together :) There would be multiple scenes of the animals playing jump rope (using the snake), and doing other activities together - playground style perhaps. There would be several colorways on lighter backgrounds (more with a greytone than pastel however) - of pink/blue/grey/etc.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Mine would be that perfect dark red, black and dark tans - mostly with tiny prints.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It would have to be green and would have to incorporate leaves into the pattern somehow. I really love stripes, too, so it would have those included in the design. What a fun idea to play around with:)

    ReplyDelete
  19. My own fabric design would be the aqua of the sea along with seashell yellow and a pop of tangerine and would be simple geometric!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would want a crisp white fabric that has just a little blur of pink and blue in it - the pink and blue would be barely visible but would go with a lot of other colors for scrap quilts.

  21. My fabric would be the ripple of the wind blowing over a pond full of water lilies and swans floating on the water. Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mine would be of the palest gray with wispy white clouds floating here and there.... What a fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  23. If I could create my very own fabric.. I would have to make a whole line of fabric.. cuz who can pick just one color.. I would want some color variations where the colors blend from light to darks so that when you do applique, you can get just that piece you need to make the leaf look perfect.. the flower petal look lifelike.. so you can see the color blends are limitless.. and the line would continue :) good choice huh :) I'm no dummy!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. My fabric would have to be a whole line of fabric. One fabric for each of my child, and one in every color way of pink, brown, blue, yellow and orange.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my goodness, this is a FABULOUS give away....a great big thank you to all the sponsors for being so generous!

    If I were to design my own fabric, it would be something along the lines of Sandy Gervais' "Frolic". I just love that fabric and those bright and happy colors. But I'd also like to design something that echoes the gorgeous florals and textures of vintage bark cloth. Love that, too!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to play along!

    XOXO,

    Cyndi

  26. My fabric would be soft yellows & greens

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have been searching for awhile now for a fabric line in gray and black with absolutely no florals in it. And maybe a colorway in deep burgundy and navy to match. Shades of Grey and Ty's Impressions come really close, but not enough prints for the quilt design I have in mind. It would be really nice to have a quilt shop around that carried all these lines to match up in person.

    ReplyDelete
  28. If I designed fabric it would have to be yellow, and maybe grey with some green...and would need to have flowers and stripes!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow! So many great ideas. If I were to design my own fabric it would definitely have shades of green in it and maybe some blues also. I would have to say it might be a batik since I love the way the colors just blend into the fabric. I might add some hearts which has already been done but why mess with perfection. An additional color would be maybe a hot pink or burgundy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ohhh...I love fabric! I would design a fabric with old, Victorian-style postcards with lots of "lace" and "pearls" as a background tying them all together.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow...with all the beautiful fabric out here, I don't even think about designing my own. There is no way I would ever run out of fabric to buy that I love!

    ReplyDelete
  32. My fabric would be a butter yellow with sweet pink roses on it. Already been done but I love the look.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My own fabric... would definitely be all different shades of purple. I'll start there. I would want to print different white flowers, dots, zigzags... it depends. I haven't given enough thought to this in the past, and now I am! Hm...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Most people think I'm nuts, because, I LOVE anything Christmas...all year long. Now, I do not keep my tree up past new years, but I keep all my Christmas quilts out and do use them all year long.
    So, my fabric would be anything holidays, especially Christmas...I see small villages, santa and reindeer overhead, snowmen..the whole small town decorations. Easter bunnies with baskets and chicks, etc., etc., etc.
    Please include me in this drawing. Joanie R.

  35. probably a full range of greens...that seems to be the hardest color to find just the right shade I need!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My fabric would be white or light grey with paisly in a slightly darker shade. I love using a white-on-white instead of a solid. Do they even make a grey-on-grey? I would use it if they did!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd love lots of polka dots in various sizes and bright colors and fun and funky flowers. Craving bright colors since everything outside is dead and brown. Fun question to consider, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Spring for me... Have to have some kind of pink and greens...infact lots of pastels and whites....flowers, leaves, birds....and lots of sunshine....:0)
    How I now would get it on a fabric....hmmmm.... Sure needs a lot of thinking and feeling...and JOY.... that is Spring to me

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hmmm...it would be turquoise with fuchia purses outlined in black and with white accents. My favorite colors and they feel like warm weather to me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Mine would be paisley. I ADORE paisley. It would be super bright colours like Pomergranate and Papaya and Lime and Lagoon on a neutral background. It would be the best of both worlds. A neutral to be staid and colour to be LOUD.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Let's see... I love camping and the outdoors... maybe little campfires, tents, trees, picnic tables, etc. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love reds and pinks right now, so I would do something with those colors! With hearts and culie-ques and such!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Since it is once again snowing here, I would design a soft yellow background with swirls of orange shades, lines of bright yellows, and some white. Anything to look like the first daffodils of spring!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I need a deep, deep purple almost black. It could have words on it in white or yellow, or not. Some kind of pattern would be nice. Okay, I'm a quilt fabric buyer, not a designer. I sure appreciate all their work and creativity.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My favourite - green, red and purple :) mostly with tiny prints. Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. A white background with apple green, cherry red, and yellow squiggly stripes.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love your design:)
    Mine would be that perfect blue - not too purple-y or too green-y, just that color when the sky is clear and cloudless.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mine would be burgundy with gold threads running through.

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. a crosshatch design for sure

    ReplyDelete
  50. If I was to design my own material I would use black fingerprints all over a clear background... just to be different!
    this is an amazing giveaway (I'm never lucky with these big ones, LOL, but you never know...!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think your fabric design could be a winner Madamme Samm! Now what would I choose...I would like to design fabric with scriptures written on them and some with pretty sayings, but I don't think I could stop there I think we'd need some very pretty Rose prints(in different sizes)and a few co-ordinating stripes. I'd also like to design some with cute little houses all over it. OK I think I should stop there, don't think I could decide on a favourite!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Something bright and cheery, Turquoise and cobalt blue in there. some with pink and purples, and what about a sunshiny yellow. Flowers, swirls, checks polka dots, maybe not all on the same piece, but pieces that would go good together.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just got an antique quilt-top (circa 1880) at auction and there is this wonderful red sort of paisley with a striped background...I want that fabric! (actually there are three or four fabrics is this quilt-top that I am fabric-lusting for....)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I prefer florals to geometrics and I would use lots of creams, greens and purples. Thinking about being able to design fabric is fun!

    ReplyDelete
  55. oh that is a tough questions as there are so many wonderful fabrics out there. Mine would have to be some bright cheerful colours, like teal, yellow, pink, orange with tulips and other flowers. something to brighten these never ending winter days!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love fabrics with texture, that look like something else. I'd design a line of cotton prints based on other fabrics - chunky cable-knit sweaters in heathered yarns, tweeds, coarse-weave linen, denims ... they'd be fun for applique and other uses too.

    ReplyDelete
  57. My fabric was already designed by Hallmark - it is patterned on their Maxine character and is black and white with the words BLAH BLAH BLAH, etc on it.
    I love it so much I bought five yards for my stash!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm not a sponsor of this giveaway nor am I related to any of them....THANKFULLY...because I want to quilify to win that basket of heaven...YEAH!!!

    If I could design my own fabric....oh that's an easy one....I'm put my boys and husbands face all over it and make a whole cloth quilt and wrap myself in it.

    Smultzy I know....but at least I'm honest right?

    Smiles,

  59. Purple with black designs. Possibly small diamonds. I would love to see more purple reproduction fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'd like to see more stripes- narrow and wide, in a variety of colors. Thanks for sharing.

  61. It is so hard to find good 'blendables'. I would like a nice lineny fabric with many blends of thread to create the hue of luscious, light colour. I do this a lot with cross stitch - use different hues of color in 3/4/6 strands to re-create a new exciting color. Soft colors with enough texture and light contrast they would blend with other palettes. Of course you would need a line of colour - we need to blend all those pretties.

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a fantastic giveaway! I love florals so I'd probably design a burgundy-ish floral print - some greens, creams and pink but mostly burgundy.

    ReplyDelete
  63. My fabric would be pale sage green with little pale blue, pale pink and pale yellow swirls and flowers...Spring is in the air and on my mind!

  64. I have never thought about what I would like to design. I guess I would like some fabrics to go with every room in my house, that would make things easy for me. No more long hours of searching for just the right fabric to match my kitchen (and all the other rooms in the house), I would just have them handy. Sometimes, I think I spend as much time picking fabrics as I do making the project.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My fabric would be a pistachio green color with dark blue circles and little curly Q's (It would match my room!)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I have designed my own fabric and am anxiously waiting for it to come out with Studio e!!!!!! It's been almost a year now.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have had this crazy notion of designing ethnic prints in nontraditional colorways; how cool!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Black and ivory (piano keys) with deep red and SILVER for my flute. Musical motifs, to be sure, but the colors need to include silver or grey to go with the flute.

  69. My fabric would be of elaborate birds with plumy feathers sitting in flowering fruit trees--of rich colors: deep blues, greens, reds. Can you tell, winter is long here and we just had a blizzard!!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. When I read your fabric design I started looking around to figure out where to get some, hahaha! Alas, it's just that an idea. Too funny!

    I would design a fabric called Sunset/Sunrise. It would have to be saturated with bigger than life oranges, purples, red, and the like in big swirly dreamy cloud shaped patterns. Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My fabric would be sunshine yellow with delicate batik flowers and tendrils all over it in sapphire blue and ruby red colourwashes, because I love bright colours and stark patterns with a dash of elegance!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh my...I have so many fabric designs I would design if I could. I'd have to learn to draw first, of course. I wonder if Hillbilly Fabric would be popular?

    ReplyDelete
  73. if i was to design my own fabric it would be shades of purple with green fern leaves in the background, this is a fun giveaway! thanks for the dream.

    ReplyDelete
  74. That perfect fabric would be like the horse in the Wizard of Oz and change colors to match its surroundings. It would be light green when resting with little flowers in a darker green.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Well, I know it would be blue because that is my favourite colour, I'm thinking maybe the quotation which is the title of my blog across in script of some sort, and I could do that on Spoonflower couldn't I.

    ReplyDelete
  76. mine would be indigo blue with a real live fairy sprinkling it with stars.

    ReplyDelete
  77. If I could design my own fabric, I would choose a fabulous seaside blue with a sparkling white tendril design throughout. Fresh and clean!

  78. This is harder than I thought.... I am loving birds at the moment... I would go with a series of strong colours with feathers imprinted ... tone on tone.... and then bake a cake and eat it!!

  79. Wow, I would loose sleep for nights trying to come up with something totally fabulous. But deep down I would stick with deep rich spicy colors (paprika, cumin, saffron, cheyenne, pumpkin, clove- I'm getting hungry) and try to incorporate some of the patterns and accent colors (turquoise, lapis, silver, aubergine, celadon) in the tiles and ceramics I saw 3 summers ago in the sultan's palace in Istanbul. They were breath taking and unbelievably beautiful- truly fit for a king, or better yet, my first line of fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  80. If I was to design my own line of fabrics, it would include olive greens, warm purples, burnt oranges, deep teals, and ochre yellows. The designs would reflect the natural world. There would be small and medium patterns and hand dyed blenders. I can see it all now. Too bad it is only in my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  81. My fabric would have light green background with lots of different trees and leaves ---like a forrest --- giving a feeling of calm and coolness.
    quiltschon@att.net

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is really hard - there's little I don't like! But it would be bright - maybe yellow or green. With a geometric print in a contrasting bright color. Altho' I do like your idea with the words as well. Can I have them both?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hee Hee! I LOVE your idea. Can I go with that? Except mine would be an assortment of bright colored words on white.
    Or maybe something with lots of geometric shapes - as long as the colors are bold - preferably including all of the colors in the rainbow!

    ReplyDelete
  84. This year I am still loving the aqua and red. There are so many wonderful fabics available for us.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'd go with blue and tan colors - maybe some of the tan really being more of a caramel color. Swirls and abstract lines would be the design. (Then I'd have to redecorate my living room so the new quilt would be prominently displayed!)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Probably shades of blue, more in the turquoise line, with some bright pinks and maybe yellows in it.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would make blue and yellow swirls on a background of white, also plaids and stripes.

    ReplyDelete
  88. First of all, wonderful giveaway!! Second of all, such awesome fabric ideas. I really want some of Madame Samm's, Mary on Lake Pulaski's, and Kylie's!! This is a very hard question, I would design something bright in yellows, reds, limes, and tangerine's. I would have a subtle design but have it 'read' as a solid.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love yellows...it's hard to find good yellows. I think i would add some blues and greens as well. I also like tulips.
    sntbosch@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  90. Mine would be sunshine yellow with china red flowers. Or maybe khaki with black crows. Or maybe sky blue with green leaves. Maybe I love lots of colors! blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  91. What a fun question! My fabric line would have a light mercury glass gray as the neutral & background and wisteria purple, leaf green, cool blue, and a darker gray for the colors. The patterns would be updated Art Deco designs maybe taking some inspiration from my favorite building, the Chrysler Building in NYC

    ReplyDelete
  92. It would be shades of peach with a soft gold thread running through it...

    ReplyDelete
  93. Torquoise with browns and pale yellows. Sounds a little boring now that I wrote it down.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would start off with a border fabric of a red background (loove red) that has slate Grey and black pinstripe then a white floral print then Grey and white stripes. This vertical stripe print would repeat 5 or six times across the width of the fabric. Then I would have a Slate Grey with red print, a white background with red fine swirls, black with white and a few other of different colored tone on tone coordinates to go with it.I have the quilt in mind I would use it for.

    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  95. If I were to design my own fabric, it would have poppies on it. Big bright red poppies, no washed out orange poppies for me, the redder the better.

    ReplyDelete
  96. It would definitely have to have an orange background, some pink and fuchsia swirls in it, with maybe little black dots here and there. Dang....I'm getting excited just thinking about it....now I guess I need to make something with those colors in it right now!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would use the colors of spring as they cheer me the most. I would definitely have pinks, light blues, purples, greens...I love color!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Mine would have to be greens and browns with a touch of rusty orange or pale yellow and it would have leaves on it - long slender gum leaves and the intricate brushlike silver wattle branches. And cockateils, love my cockateil :)!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I would make batik fabric with turtles and fish swimming all over it in green and blues.

    ReplyDelete
  100. If I could design my own fabric, it would fall short because I don't feel the creativity that way, but it would definately have red and yellow, green and purple and pink---oh boy. Love the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Mine would be off white with tiny jewel tone flowers with pretty light green leaves.

    ReplyDelete
  103. My fabric would have lots of reds, yellows and white with flowers and dots and would be so, so, so soft. The feel of fabric is just as important as the design to me. Wonderful giveaway!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wow, if I was to design a fabric it would be a 'mood changing fabriganza' that would suddenly appear just the perfect shade when I was mid-project and searching for that elusive piece! lol

    What an amazing giveaway, makes me feel spring-y just thinking about it! Thanks to our sponsors for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  112. I would design a fabric that was 1950's inspired ...possibly a green background with white and soft pink flowers. Actually what I am thinking of are the curtains my Mother had in our kitchen when I was a child.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  113. My fave fab would be BLACK--my favorite color for quilt fabric. It would have a swirl design in tan. Thanks for the wonderful Give Away. Thanks MS

    ReplyDelete
  114. Oh Madame Samm what a lovely give-a-way. I would design a pretty shade of pink and green swirls with just a hint of not too dark yellow....oh it sounds just wonderful even saying it...thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hhmm - never thought about it before. I suppose I am always looking for just the right shade of blue, a true royal blue, not too much green, not too dark, just right.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Ooh I love your idea. I think mine would be grey with pink iridescent looking dragonflies.

    ReplyDelete
  117. since i'm in a red & yellow phase right now, my fabric would have to have lots of red & yellow and florals and polka dots....

    ReplyDelete
  118. My material would be orange with happy fat kitties akk over it!

    ReplyDelete
  119. What a great question. I would love a fabric that was a combo of red black and Grey in real masculine looking designs solid lines or squares or combo thereof. That way I could make my 14 year old son a turning twenty he can still be proud of when he is 25:)

  121. Thanks for asking!!!!! My "dream" fabric:
    A backing wide fabric with bold, strong, single colored circles, obliques, triangles, trapezoids, rectangles on a swirling, bold colored blended rainbow dancing and moving under the geometrics like one huge intertwining mobius. A SATEEN fabric.
    When it is made, I'll buy a bolt of it! :)
    Bold colors sing to me!

  124. My fabric would be a beautiful batik - in turquoise and blues with waves in browns and beiges. I could use it over and over!

    ReplyDelete
  125. If I could design fabric I would design some boy fabric with browns, blues, and greens with a punch of red or orange - checks, squares, circles, puppies, and other boy stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I would probably design something with blues and golds. And maybe some burgundy, with a little green...too hard to decide! Good thing there are experienced designers out there who give me everything I need!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Absolutely floral! And bright with oranges and yellows.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Right now I'm looking for a large floral print in colors of pink, coral, rose and peach with perhaps just a touch of green for some leaves. I want the flowers to dominate with no background fabric in the mix so this is what I would design.

    ReplyDelete
  129. My favorite color lately is this gorgeous purple/fushia color in Sandy Gervais's line, Central Park. I just LOVE it. And it would have lots of happy white daisy's all over it :) Can't wait for this awesome giveaway! Thanks Samm

    ReplyDelete
  130. Am a new follower (Jonda) and my fabric would be all paisleys. Not old fuddyduddy paisley but bright colourful paisley with flowers and leaves in them. All sizes, big and small.

    ReplyDelete
  131. My own fabric would be a lot like Gunne Sax looked back in the 80's.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Since I'm sitting here loking at 2 feet of accumulated pristine white snow my fabric would be a white on white with just a hint of big spring flowers running through it. Thanks for the giveaway...I could quilt my way to spring with it!

    ReplyDelete
  133. My design would have to be roses. I just eat them up on fabric. In rosy pink, red, yellow, blue, any color really. :)

  135. I've always wanted a cut of fabric to match the sky just before the sun sinks below the horizon. One selvage end would be the eastern horizon, midnight blue. The other selvage end would be the western horizon with just the faintest hue of pinkish orange. Inbetween the selvages would be the darkening sky. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  136. Hi, fab giveaway!!! My fabric would start off cream and work thru the brown tones to finish with a rich dark brown, then all over the fabric could be pictures of all my favourites antiques, old irons, mangles, butter churns, ploughs, jugs, flour bags etc...oh the dream!!!thanks Michelle

  137. Oh my- I keep trying to be open to the possibilities each fabric brings. Bonnie Hunter says that if you think a fabric is ugly that you just haven't cut it up small enough yet. I have lots of batiks and then have gone to a modern, clean look and am embracing solids at this point. I guess if I designed some fabric for me I would have a neutral background with bits of a color. This seems much harder to find than saturated color fabrics right now. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.

  138. i would mix cream and white together for a cloud type background and use shapes of birds and trees reverse stenciled on the fabric to acquire a "green" line of cotton fabrics with fabrics in those colors to go with it with an
    accent of teal or orange. Something that could be used year round. not seasonal

  139. Wow! What a fabulous giveaway! Thanks to all the sponsors :^)

    My fabric would be stripes & dots - turquoise, process blue, violet, red, yellow, orange, green backgrounds with the dots in black & white...and the reverse with the dots & stripes being the colors with both black & white backgrounds!

  140. If I could create and design your own material. What would it look like, what color would it be? I would make it bright and cheerful. I love Dilly Dally so something like that. I would make many styles then make them in all the color ways. I would make it in also in black on white then the reverse. Thank you for the wonderful give away. Thank you to all of the sponcers who add greatly to this blog!

  141. I would design lights...creamy backgrounds, white backgrounds, and all shades in between. I can never find enough lights. They are always the ones in a new line of fabrics that go first. Guess I've got to be quicker...On one shopping trip to Lancaster, PA that is all I bought. Lights. Love em!

  142. I love cityscapes in silohuettes, so probably something like that :)

    ReplyDelete
  143. The colours would be red, aqua and white, the pattern is more difficult, maybe some primitive shapes. Also a brown, pink and beige with flowers, small and big ones. Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  144. I am really drawn lately to fabric with words on it. Perhaps that is because I gave up my scrapbook hobby for quilting. It would be pea green with charcoal grey. The words would be dream, believe, achieve.

    ReplyDelete
  145. On any given day I could think of a hundred different color combinations but put me on the spot and I'm a BLANK!!!! Too many ideas swirling around in the ole bean! But love me some pinks and greens.

    ReplyDelete
  146. The color pallet would be orange...and I do love pinwheels....and it is almost spring...and with this wind all around. I guess orange with bright colored pinwheels, yes, that's my answer! *fingers crossed*

    ReplyDelete
  147. I love the romantic look of some of the French Country fabrics, so if I were to design my own fabric it would have to have wine, cream, and pink with Peonies or Cabbage Roses in the mix.

    ReplyDelete
  148. What an awesome giveaway! Your sponsors are very generous! (Maybe we all need to email and thank them!)
    I love the description of your fabric; mine would be text as well, but on a very bold, saturated burgundy marble....cream text that says "Love never ends" and "Love never fails."
    I even have a quilt and a recipient in mind!
    Thanks for all you do for all of us quilty folks!

  149. Your sponsors are so generous. This is an awesome giveaway. If I could design my own fabric it would be with a background of chocolate brown with aquas, pink and a little bit of mint green. It seems like my eye is drawn to these colors lately. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I have never won a giveaway so maybe this is my lucky giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  150. My background would be a popcorn color with a hint of heavy cream. And on it polka dots in a sage green, blue bird blue, poppy red, and a hunter green. It would be like a polka dot garden of poppies and forget me knots.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I would have jewel tones. Some solid, some striped and some with geometric shapes on them. Would love some with polka dots of all different sizes. What a great giveaway.

  152. Goodness that looks like a wonderful give away.
    My fabric would have the colors of spring, fresh flowers new grasses and beneficial insects,as I do like my Dragonfly and Ladybugs.Sew my fabric would have a few colors going on sky blues ,grass green, brighter colors for the dragonfly's(might end up with a line rather than just one fabric) As winter is still going strong here I think this might just warm the heart to thoughts of springtime and sipping an iced-tea, just enjoying the sunshine with the rest of God's creatures.

  153. Wow Madame Samm that is a big giveaway! The biggest I have seen on a blog!
    If I can design my own abric, my fabric will have a lot of dots and stipes and there have to be flowers. I like spring pastel colors, teal, blue, yellow, green, blue, peach and pink. There also have to be a few solids and a clean white background.

    ReplyDelete
  154. My fabric would be soft butter yellow with soft teal birman cat outline. Of course, there would have to coordinating fabric with words (love sweetwater word fabrics) What words? Love, hope, inspire, create, kitty, stitch, perseverence, charity, hockey....opps, hockey grandma here, that snuck in:) What fun giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I want sky blue with bright spring flowers, birds, butterflies.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Super giveaway! Thank you!
    My fabric would have to be Americana; deep, rich navy background with deep burgundy and tan stars swirling around!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Samm I need fabric, black with white flowers with a touch of red, can you make that? This giveaway would supply me with material and projects for a year. Thank you Sponsors.

  158. We tried the sun dye technique once ... wind & clouds rolled in and messed things up! Fabric that speaks of Nature...ferns, small vines & leaves. Batik style I guess?!!
    (Since it's pretend I could afford all I wanted :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. Something blue and beiges from an antique quilt. Probably some brown added too.

  160. I'd love to see some modern prints with navy. I have a bit of blue and hardly any navy. Navy and tan, navy and red, navy and white, navy and yellow...Don't know why I'm focused on it, given I don't have any in my house...maybe that's why!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  161. It's raining today so today, it would be red with some black for detailing and bits of other brights, but I have to admit that before today I was thinking of a watercolor painting type of detail motif with soft, light bright colors. Guess I have to design two different lines! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  162. I would like to see more 'shirting' type fabrics for backgrounds, especially with white backgrounds. I love anything made with darker red and complimentary colors. I totally enjoy your blog and have been a long time subscriber.

    ReplyDelete
  163. VERY NEAT GIVEAWAY!
    THANKS TO ALL!
    I'D CHOOSE A DARK WINE RED+CREAM, MAYBE SEVERAL SMALL PRINT CREAMS.
    HAPPY QUILTING TO ALL1

    ReplyDelete
  164. What a fun question!! It would be spring, with yellow, pink, blue, green florals on a creamy ivory background...and I would be working on it now, on this gray rainy/snowy day in Idaho!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Wow so hard to choose, as I am nothing close to a designer, more follow the leader. But I love lady bugs and humingbirds. So mine would include both of them with some flowers for them to land on or feed from. And the colors of course would be reds, and irradescent greens.

    ReplyDelete
  166. It takes all kinds to make the world go around. I am not a creative thinker in that way. It would have never crossed my mind to want to create my own fabric. I am one who takes the creative ideas of others and builds upon or with that. I think that's why quilting is such a good fit for me. I can take the fabric designs of others and coerce them together into the most exquisite quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  167. It's great fun to read all the different fabrics everyone would design!

    ReplyDelete
  168. mmm...how many times have we gone to the lqs with something specific in mind and not found it. :? I adore all reproduction prints, but am in love with all things that fall into that Civil War category. I find it hard to find lots of different cream & white shirtings so I'd probably make an entire line of just that done in different colored inks...black, browns, indigos, greens and reds. Our star fabrics would be nothing without their supporting cast. =0)

    ReplyDelete
  169. I would make fabric with words - words - and more words.

    ReplyDelete
  170. What an AWESOME Giveaway!!! I LOVE your idea for fabric!!! LOL I'd HAVE to buy it too!! ABSOLUTELY!!!!

    I'm new to quiltin'....& just can't even imagine designing a fabric line....but if I could...I know it'd have to be Happy prints, and in colors of Spring/Summer!

    Thanks for chance to win! I signed up to Follow your Blog too....don't want to miss any of your super talent & ideas!

    Hugs!

  171. Designing a fabric line would be really neat, but I just don't have that artistic talent. Would go with blue/gold/red colors, which are my favorites. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I tried to leave a comment earlier, but it doesn't appear to have stuck. If it did and I missed it, I am not trying to cheat by entering twice.

    I LOVE cobalt blue, but find few really good fabrics that color, so that is probably what I would go for. But there are so many wonderful fabrics out there, I am generally content to be lazy and enjoying the fruits of the creativity of others.

    Thanks for the chance at such a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Did I just comment in the wrong place? It doesn't take much to confuse me, lol!!
    My fabric would be a flowing aqua voile with orange swirly print.
    What a way to bring in Spring! Thanks for such a great giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  174. OH, this is easy, something vintagie, with lots of reds, greens, and turquoise. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway. I am crossing my fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  175. oh I really love nearly every fabric line, no matter if antik style, shabby, bright, pastel or primitive folk art and I love to create and to chalange myself...hm but I think if I were able to design fabric I would make something with roses, cats, ....sea coast and sheeps ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  176. what generous sponsor's you have Madam Sam. I would like to design a range of fabrics with an architectural theme, all over designs including Timber,weatherboard,tiles, slate, corrugated Iron, Bricks, stripes of reinforcing rods, dry stone walling etc.They would come in a range of tan's grey's, whites and creams, with rusty reds and ochres.

    I love creams, reds , browns and blues. I think this is the best giveaway I have ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Oh my gosh......what a haul! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!
    Not sure what my fabric would be. Right now, because of Spring I suppose, I'd do something with a soft yellow background and bright flowers or swirls.

    ReplyDelete
  179. I actually have a design in mind for a blog. It is a picture of a bird that my daughter drew when she was 3 years old. It's the perfect blend of blue and purple- and it is cute. I've thought about having a yard printed up on Spoonflower, but I laminated the card she drew it on, and I can't get a good scan of it.

    Is this what I do to enter? I'd love to win. I've not been quilting long, and never buy extra fabric- and I NEED it something awful.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Fabric with spring colors - the yellow of daffodils, the reds and pinks of tulips, the violet of lilacs and the green of new grass. It's been a long, cold winter and I'm ready for spring!

    ReplyDelete
  181. I would design fabric with colors of a sunset.

    ReplyDelete
  182. My fabric would be soft greens, yellows and pinks with large roses and very shabby chic looking.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Flowers! Oh, yes, never tire of them. Flowers on a rich, blendy background. I don't care for stark contrast. Shaded reds from light to darks with bits of blues and lovely leaves of varied greens with bits of browns.

    ReplyDelete
  184. There are so many new designers in the comments, I wanna buy most of the ideas! hurry ladies, get them out of your heads and onto the showroom floors :0)

    ReplyDelete
  185. I love flowers, especially mauve and beige background. But I would like any of those lovely gifts if my name is drawn.

    ReplyDelete
  186. I like flowers in bright colours and paisleys and dots...

    ReplyDelete
  187. I would design red and white batiks in polka dots, geometric shapes, and flowers. Also novelty fabrics of African American babies, children, and life activities.

    ReplyDelete
  188. Oh my! I'd go with oranges, turquoises, flowers, whimsical. :-) THANKS!! joleehamlin [at] comcast [dot] net

  189. If I was to design fabric it would be using Gray's. Gray fabric is difficult to find for use in my Scarlet and Gray quilts. After all www.iquiltscarletandgray.blogspot.com is who I am.

    ReplyDelete
  190. If I were to design a line of fabric or a quilt pattern I would use creamy colors with pale lavenders, blues and greens. The lavender flower would be part of the fabrics or design, maybe a few hydrangea flowers, I think I am tired of winter and want to see spring and summer flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I've been thinking about this for several days.....and it's so hard to choose just one idea.

    Maybe soft muted pastels. Romantic vintage florals

    ReplyDelete
  192. Thanks for the giveaway. The perfect fabric would also be a batik with a muted leaf design, something in soft blues and greens.
