  3. I love fall colors and I love FALL!

    Kansas Troubles fabrics are always calling out to me.

  4. What a fantastic giveaway! Great question, too. I love the colder months, when you just want to hunker down and create. It gets so dark here, though, during those months that I like using brighter colors. I crave the light.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Awesome fabrics and prizes! And I MUST say that I'm loving your signature with the coffee pot. Too, too cute and so you! :0)

    Let's see. I LOVE stitching anything Christmas, but I really am enjoying the new, bright colors that are out there now, so would have to choose Summer/brights.

    Thank you for the giveaway! I've so loved seeing all of these table toppers. :0)

  6. I'm probably more winter...I love the the beautiful Christmas fabric...and winter is the perfect time to stay warm inside sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love the warm colors any time of year..for any summer or winter project...

    ReplyDelete
  8. I just came by to look up a tutorial and what do I see, another amazing giveaway!
    I'm a January baby and have always LOVED winter and I think that influences my colour choices. Always more autumnal and wintery. All this gorgeous inspiration is rubbing off on me though and I'm making brighter colour choices!
    Huge love to you Madame Samm :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I like the Summer colors would get more use out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm more inspired by Spring colours and warm months. Winter months make me want to curl up under a quilt with a good book :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I must be a very random person but i have no trend to my sewing. lisaursino@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love warm colors all year round !

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm always inspired by the current season, however, I buy most of my seasonal fabrics off season in order to save some money. I just sew when the time and muse moves me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ik ben ook gek op warme kleuren maar houd meer van het voorjaar en en herfst. Dus eigenlijk warme zomer kleuren zijn mijn favoriet. Geel, Paars, en alerlei blauw tinten.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like the warm, earthy colors of the cooler months...Fall colors are the BEST :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am SPRING (is that an option?)
    I love flowers and soft flowery colors.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Definitely more of a "warm month" color palette girl ~ bright yellows, greens, aquas, oranges :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oooh I'm not sure- I think it depends on the day- Somedays I am inspired by Christmas/fall colors other days it's the bright colors!
    thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  19. Summer, as I'm in Minnesota and it's never around long enough. Very fun giveaway. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like them both--warm and cold--just depends more on my mood than the season. Hope you get the blogger problems fixed and working again soon! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I mostly like warm colours, but I also love blues. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have never been a total fan of Christmas quilts because I am not a big fan of the red and green color combo which is what most Christmas quilts were made of until recently. A number of modern designers are putting out lines that have much more color variety so I am loving Christmas quilts much more. Living in the desert, it is really hard to love a summer quilt! So, I guess I would have to say, Christmas quilts are my current favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fall is my inspiration. I love the warm inviting tones.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bright, light summer colors inspire me most; yellows, greens, lavenders are my faves. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fall has always been my favorite so probably winter colors. But more and more I find myself inspired by all the bright pretty summer colors out there. They are so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love Christmas quilts, but since I'm still fairly new to quilting I haven't made one yet. Because of that, I guess I like working with summery colors and patterns, since that's all I've done! Thanks for the opportunity to win such an incredible giveaway!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ohhhhh what a fantastic give away, and you know what I have to admit? (blushing here) I've never heard of them before :-(. But I love what I have seen so far.
    I'm definitively a cold month person, I love quilts in warm colors.
    Thank you so much for the kitchen patterns and the table topper bloghop.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Definitely inspired more by Summer patterns/designs!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I am more a season quilter. In every season I tend to use the colours which suit the weather and my mood.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I do love Christmas and winter themed projects, but I would say I'm an equal opportunity quilter/crafter! All year is when I love to create!

    Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm also drawn to bright, happy colors, so I guess that goes with warm months. Of course, all our months here in South Texas are warm, so that makes sense!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like all colors but am a real fan of cool colors.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd say that I'm a summer quilter, since I'm drawn to light, bright, and colorful patterns. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm inspired by Summer designs since that is my favorite time of year...love the warm weather, flowers and sunshine! Thanks for the chance!

  35. What a great prize pack!!!! I love looking at "warm months" colors, but I probably prefer creating with "cold months" colors. Hmmm... what does that say about me??

    ReplyDelete
  36. I LOVE the Fall and everything about it. The crisp weather, the warm colors and of course Halloween. Most of my favorite colors are Fall colors, like deep plum and cinnamon. Thanks for the great giveaway. Quick question, do you ever sleep? ;-> Toni Anne

    ReplyDelete
  37. Warm Months! Definitely! Shasta looks beautiful! Thanks so much for a chance to win all those goodies!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love bright spring colors so I think I'm inspired most when its warm out but ac is kick on high. I hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would like to think I am a warm season quilter I like bright colours and patterns....however I tend to buy a lot of cold season colours!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hello! I think I'm inspired by bright warm summer colours, maybe cause winters here are quite wet and dark! thanks so much for the chance to win (although chances are very slim!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just went through all of my patterns and books - and CLEARLY I prefer winter projects! :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Though I like to look at the bright colors of summer quilts, I am most inspired by winter quilts. That may be because winter just seems like the "time" for a quilt!

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway. It's a good one!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm kinda into warm weather quilts but the cover on the Urban Country Quilts is pretty cool!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I tend to gravitate to brighter colors so would have to say warm.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am most certainly a winter quilter, I prefer colours like this giveaway. I looked at my stash, and it is made up mostly of these. I like them because it does not show footprints from the kids dirty feet, foods the get spiled on them and sticky fingers. What was your question?
    Great giveaway thank you. love the opportunity. Terrific pic. Nbiss at sympatico

    ReplyDelete
  46. I will work with most anything, BUT have a real hard time working with Christmas prints. But I like warm/cool - Fall is my favorite season and I think I tend to use those Autumn colors more. See, so outside the box,cuz that's not on the list! Thank you so much for hosting this lovely give away - I feel for those in the 'blogger goof fog' - I'm waiting until it poofs, maybe by then all the bugs will be worked out.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Recently I'm more on a Summer mood. Bright colors, pinks , greens ,aqua.
    Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm definitely a warm month quilter. Give me brights, and I'm happy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. The temp doesn't necessarily inspire what colours I use. Christmas in New Zealand is in Summer but leading up to it I'm inspired by everything lol.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'd have to say the winter months, not because I am inspired by Christmas patterns and designs, but because I love working with the jewel tones.

    ReplyDelete
  51. it totally depends on my mood, but i think i lean more towards warm months with bright, fun colors!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm a warm inspired quilter. But, hey, any reason to sew.

  53. My problem is liking most everything, but I have to say I'm drawn to bright summery things. What a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I don't find dark or muted colours to be very inspiring. I much prefer the clear, bright summery colours.
    What a great give away.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think I share equally summery and wintery colors when it comes to sewing/quilting. What a great give away. I have been having trouble keeping up with the hop. Much to do around the home front lately.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Definitely the bright colors of the warm months inspire me the most !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am more inspired by Summer patterns - brights and warmth for me :)
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter your wonderful giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Summer patterns/designs. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I just ran(okay, I walked) to check my stash and it is very clear that I am a warm months quilter. Coming back through the rooms I realized that the Shasta line are the colors in my house. Just finished the bathroom in green with black/white accents. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Warm months inspire me the most. I love bright springy colors. Awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm fickle. I think I prefer summery brights...then I see gorgeous blues and greens, and think that the cool colours have won me over...then I see a red thast I adore and I'm back to the warm side!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am most definitely a summer color quilter...love my yellow and greens !!
    And love the giveaway, thanks

    ReplyDelete
  63. My favorite colors are blue and purple, and I love snowflake fabrics. I think I'm definitely a cold month quilter. But then, I'm pretty much just a winter girl all around.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh so generous sponsors and you! I am more inspired by wintry patterns...wonder why? Because we have loooong winters in Nova Scotia! Love your new signature! Thank you for another wonderful giveaway opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Definitely summer for me! LOVE the brighter, happy colors :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Warm is what I like. but when i shop if its on sale any material makes me happy!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love bright jewel tones, summer or winter. I was fortunate to meet Shelley and Jeanne earlier this year and see that lovely Urban Quilt in person; and I've regretted not buying the book ever since. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Definitely the summer patterns/designs, usually they use brighter color instead of the "cold color."

    Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love the Christmas and cold months in color ONLY. I live in Texas and I love it HOT, but in quilt colors I love browns and greens, orange and dusty dark rose.......

    ReplyDelete
  70. For me I love both! Smiles all year round. Thanks, Judith, Texas

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love warm colors. What a fantastic giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I am definitely more drawn to spring and summer colors than to cold weather colors. But I try to mix it up and make some seasonal things for all different times of the year. This giveaway is wonderful -- I need a pick-me-up this week for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love jewel colours - so probably more of a summer theme.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I am definitely more inspired by Christmas patterns and designs because I love to make all of my Christmas presents. I crank up the Christmas music and get stitching!

    ReplyDelete
  75. warm colours are top of my list regardless of the season! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love making bright colorful quilts. The kind of quilt you look at and think "candy!" and want to take a bite. There is so much color out there that inspires me.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Cold month. I can cozy in and create. Our summer months are just too short to stay indoors.
    Thanks for the chance at a great give away.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Love warm colours, they make me feel good all year round.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Cold months, I think. Snuggle, snuggle! :) Thanks for an awesome giveaway, Samm. I've enjoyed the blog hop. :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am drawn to the cold months quilts. I think I need more color to work with since there is much less color in nature during the winter. I also like to snuggle up with my quilts so I enjoy working on them more.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I tend to sew with warm colors during winter, and cold colors in the warmer months.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am more inspired by colors for warm months but love Christmas so that is a hard question lol.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have both of those books as well! Love them! Definitely cold months for me. I LOVE both fall and winter weather and colors. Awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh..I'm not sure, I like reds and warm colours but I also like Fig Tree and 3 sisters, I guess it depends what I feel like and who I am making the quilt for. Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  85. Lately I've been inspired by Christmas quilts but for me Christmas is warm (I'm in Australia!).

    ReplyDelete
  86. I never thought about it before, but summer months for me! Doesn't make sense though, because winter's the best time for blankety snuggling.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love the warm months, the colors of sunshine, flowers,birds and the aquas of the warm ocean waters.
    Thanks to the sponsors and Madame Samm for the luscious giveaway.

  88. I love the warm months, the colors of sunshine, flowers,birds and the aquas of the warm ocean waters.
    Thanks to the sponsors and Madame Samm for the luscious giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Oh golly, that is a touch question. I'm inspired by the purpose or future use of the quilt, I think. I would like a picnic quilt with something like Strawberry Fields. I would like a patriotic quilt to have out on the sofa from the end of May through Labor Day. Let's not forget about a fall feeling quilt. And then for Christmas I really would like one with Holly Taylor's Christmas Spirit. Guess I'm a seasonal quilt girl : )

    ReplyDelete
  90. I LOVE bright colours, but have you seen some of those new bright/non traditional Christmas patterns...usually whatever I'm working on now is my favourite!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Since I love decorating for christmas, guess Christmas is more inspriring for me!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I suppose I am more drawn to the bright colors so I'd say "summery"; this is a great giveaway; thanks for the chance to win! (marshudson at comcast dot net)

    ReplyDelete
  93. I make more large projects and quilts in the summer months in bright colors. In the winter I do more smaller projects like mug rugs, table runners and mini-quilts. Perhaps i have a shorter attention span in the winter, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Christmas is my favorite....love all the reds and greens and blues! Yup, don' have enough Xmas quilts yet! But just made 3 Xmas quilts for my grandchildren. Love it! Thanks..

    ReplyDelete
  95. Living in Florida is a little backward. The summer months are my winter...house closed up, a/c running, etc. Just no shoveling humidity. So my quilting season is also backwards. I tend to do large projects then and smaller ones when my 'summer' comes along.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I would say I am into summer month designs. Brighter colors and more of them.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Just love both, but the warm colour maybe an itsy bitsy more. Defenitely not a blue girl, but red! Thanks for the give away! Love the books and thread! But the fabrics...oh they just grabbed me!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I would say warm months... And thanks for the chance to win a great prize
    Hugs
    Susan

    ReplyDelete
  99. I actually am about half and half. I love the bright springy prints and love to make things that are airy and light but I also love to use darker fabrics and I love the green/red Christmasy combo, usually I make whatever takes my fancy at the time. :D Thanks for a chance at this gorgeous bundle of goodies. :D

    ReplyDelete
  100. I would say cold months. I love Christmas stuff and fall/winter colors. Right now I am in a brights cycle doing gifts for others and I am thinking about pulling out a Christmas project to give me a break.

    Thanks for the chance to win. Looks like a FANTASTIC prize!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I am drawn to all colors but I am prob ably more apt to make a quilt for myself in autumn colors.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Great giveaway!!

    I am more of a summer time inspired creator because of all the colors of flowers and being able to be outside.

    Lets hope Blogger behaves for you real soon!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am inspired by Christmas patterns/designs all year round, and I'm inspired by summer patterns/designs mostly in the spring and summer. I guess that makes me more of a Christmas/winter quilter.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I guess I would have to say Christmas, since I love red and green, with tans and gold. But this year, I am enjoying doing some brighter happy pieces for the spring and summer, so I guess it depends on my mood and the fact that I love all colors.

  105. I left a comment, but I think it disappeared. Hmmmm.....

    I think I said something like you are wonderful to have another giveway or something like that. :O)

    PS..sorry if the other comment miraculously appears.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thank you for the chance to win some lovely prizes. I so love Presencia thread. I find myself making more fall quilt designs so I will have to say winter.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wow. Amazing stuff.

    I definitely start thinking holidays during the Spring and Summer. Way too many other things to do once the cold weather hits in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Warm month designs inspire me the most. But love life and any season that comes along.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I am definitely drawn toward Christmas (cold months). I love the richer darker colors.

  114. I've got my blogger on the old interface thought it keeps jumping to the new and I have to continually go back and put it back on the old one. It says the old one is going away in a month. :( I wish they'd ask us before they do stuff like that! blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  115. I used to be all over the board, but lately seem to gravitate more towards the reds and aquas and am in love with the 1930's look.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Definitely warm months! Not only do I not like the cold weather, but I'm drawn to the bright colors of spring!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Although I like both, I probably lean more to Autumn and Winter. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I find I'm more a summer, fall quilter. I love the strong bright colors of summer and the deep warm colors of fall the best.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I tend to just sew whatever whenever....no rhyme or reason!! LOL But I'd sure like to sew up something great with this!! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I'm not sure I have a season! I'm a sucker for new fabric lines, so that usually guides my choice. Right now, it's some yummy bright solids from Michael Miller Cotton Couture.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Guess I am a cool month quilter-love Christmas and fallish quilts. Also have more time to sew in the winter months. Thanks for the great giveaway

  126. I like black, gold, oranges, crazy greens, Halloween of course, and Christmas ones, so I am a cold month creature.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Right now I have been using more 19th century repos in my quilts, darker fabrics, definately not bright, so I think that would be more along the lines of winter quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I just love working with the warm earthy tones, so I must definitely be a cooler month girl.

  160. I find myself inspired more by Summer pattern, because of their bright colors. But, inspiration for a quilt can hit me any time of the year since I just love to make quilts.
    Love all the place mats and table toppers that have been shared so far!

  161. Even though I love the summer things, I'm always drawn to Christmas designs. They are the ones I always think..."I really want to make that!"

  162. Interesting question. I'd say I'm more inspired by the colors of the cold season. I love blues, greens, reds, ..... Something to think about. Have a wonderful evening!

  163. I never thought about it before but, although I don't really like summer (and most certainly don't like hot), I gravitate toward summer, beachy colors, for sure.

  168. I think I'm 50/50. I love the bright and warm colors but those darks make great quilts too. I think the occasion is more apt to help me choose than the season. Great giveaway - thanks for the chance.

  184. Even though I live in Florida, I grew up in upstate NY, so I think I'm partial to cold colors - winter quilts.
