    I would have to say that my favourite fabrics in the finished quilts were: 1/Tonga batiks, 2/ Red Rooster, and 3/Stonehenge. I do love the idea of using movie based fabrics to experiment with, and may get out my ‘Gone with the Wind’ and ‘I Love Lucy’ bits to see what I can come up with! I will be trying this block tomorrow at UFO day.
    I am presently working on a quilt top for my guest bedroom, which has sage green walls. I am working with a collection of purple and green fabrics, accented with golds and plums. no pattern, but with a central square that is ‘on point’.

    Well, I am a modern quilter as I use a machine! Gathering scraps and piling them together, using last little bits makes me frugal-ly happy!

  4. Pat Hersl says:

    Golly. I read this too late! Good Luck y’all!

  5. Tamsyn says:

    I’m a whatever-strikes-me-at-the-moment quilter. I’ve done traditional, modern, and art quilts. Thank you for the great giveaway! Tamsyn

  6. Nanci Timmmins says:

    I am drawn to the 30s fabric and traditional quilts.

  7. Julie says:

    I love traditional quilt stuff, but I also love some of the modern, esp. stuff done with bright colors! Even those traditional patterns look wonderful in brighter stuff!
