I like to make my own patterns but am not against using an existing one.

Love these solids!

Sarah said...

Beautiful colors!

mokkakissa said...

Jiihaa, just the right thing for me!

Kelly said...

i've followed patterns, and i've also sketched out my own designs. i enjoy both. :)

Merry Made Quilts said...

I'm definitely a "wing it" kind of sewer. Not against patterns, but I usually just don't ever use them. Thanks for the chance at that pretty stash!

Kate said...

Mostly I make up my own, because I have a hard time following directions.

jenny said...

I use patterns for clothes, and wing it for everything else.

Toni said...

If I am making a quilt I generally just make it up as I go, but if I am making clothes I have to use a pattern. I hope to get better at just winging it on sewing clothing because I have a hard time finding patterns I like.

NIXO said...

I use a mixture. Usually at least base it off of patterns.

NIXO said...

I subscribe to your newsletter. Thanks. kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

Nikky said...

I always start off using patterns, and then end up winging it! LOL!

Looooooove the solids! Gorgeous!

Brandy said...

I have never used a pattern, but am contemplating using one soon...just to try it out!

RenegadeQuilter said...

I start with a pattern and usually screw it up somewhere along the way so then I punt and pray till the end.

Country Mouse said...

Make it up as I go! It's part of the fun!

RenegadeQuilter said...

I just tweeted about it.

RenegadeQuilter said...

Just posted on FB about the giveaway.

Maggie said...

I usually start with a pattern but try to add a little something creative of my own. Great colors!!!

Paul said...

I "Fly by the Seat of my Pants"...

When I do use a pattern, I usually modify it in some way.

I am a new enough quilter that I have to have a pattern & try to follow as well as I can. I would love to some day be able to make my own!

KyleAnn said...

I prefer to use a pattern - even if it's one I designed myself.

KyleAnn said...

I subscribed to your newsletter last time. :)

Amber Lynne said...

If won, I will use this to start on my houndstooth quilt. I carry around a book and draw quilt blocks in it when i get ideas. All this and I am only on my second quilt!

momma said...

Right now I'm using patterns but I'm getting braver, and I'm about to have a go at my own pattern.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I know a lot of the standard blocks and settings - so kind of 'wing' quilt designs with what I know - I don't like patterns as you end up with a quilt maybe 300 other people have.

Gwyneth said...

i like making up my own

Shannan said...

for the most part...pattern or tutorial girl with my own tweaks. thanks for the chance

Sallie said...

I do both - follow patterns for specific blocks, but I do my own thing for putting them together into a completed quilt. Thanks for the giveaway! I love solids!

Andrea said...

What an awesome giveaway! I MUCH prefer to use patterns than make it up as I go - maybe as I gain experience I'll try making up my own design; but for now, I'm a pattern girl all the way!

One Shabby Chick said...

I usually make it up but at times it is nice to use a pattern...I love this bundle - almost bought it the other day :-)

moshie said...

Both! I'm still new enough at sewing that patterns are a great help! But I also love the innovation of winging it. Love Moda!

Becky said...

I tend to be a pattern follower, but I've done a few things without a pattern.

tracy_a said...

to start, patterns please (but not templates!) - and let me know how to wing it after I get the hang of it :) beautiful fabric!

memmens said...

Oh wow, I never buy solids and I know I should.
I love to make it up as I go along but rarely have the mental energy and peace and quiet to do so, so patterns it often is! Thanks for the giveaway.

memmens said...

I'm on the mailing list.

Johanna said...

I usually take a pattern and then half way through decide to wing it. Not always the smartest thing but most of the time it works :)

Cristina said...

I prefer to make it up as I go. I know that no one else will have a quilt like mine.

Stray Stitches said...

Most of the time I like using patterns - less stress on the brain - lol! Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

Lindsay said...

I like designing my own patterns for more simple projects.

Em said...

I should really add some more solids to my stash. These would be a lovely addition. I hadn't realized Momo made coordinating solids.

Caroline said...

I prefer to use patterns since I am quite a novice sewer so I think I will probably mess up if I made it up as I went along !!

Caroline~

flowerofshona said...

They are nice plains !!
Im a nvice so tend to follow patterns but have winged it on a few items, im very colour driven :)
Good luck all xxx

DianeY said...

I use patterns for clothing as a basis, but often tweak the design or change something like sleeves, neckline etc.
Quilting, I sometimes use a pattern but more often I just wing it or change the pattern so much it's hardly recognizable

Simply EC said...

I LOVE following directions so I use patterns for the most part, but occasionally I'll depart from meticulous instruction following and just wing it.

Tanya said...

I prefer patterns but certainly trymy own thing once in a while, that's what a seam ripper is for!

Sunnybec said...

As I only started quilting last year I have to use patterns, though I do sometimes change how many rows I do and how many or how wide the borders are. Thanks for the chance

Tiffany said...

I like having a pattern to get me started and then "making it my own" by deviating from the pattern where I see fit.

Sara said...

Who doesn't need a set of solids?!? Thanks! Sara

Natalie said...

I prefer to make my own designs and I would love to make my own creation with these fabrics! I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be the lucky winner!

Kenna said...

I'm half and half on the patterns. I usually start with a pattern (or a picture) and then run from there....I will change often change something and make it "mine"

Sequana said...

Oh, I have a couple patterns that I would love to make with these. I'm just too lazy to do my own design when there are so many to choose from that others have already done.

harleywife57 said...

I do both ; I just kinda wing it ! I am using a pattern right now but changed it to make it bigger and now changed the hst layout !!!

Sequana said...

Adelina Priddis said...

LittleBook said...

I prefer using patterns, but I am currently working on one without a pattern and I am very curious to see how it turns out!

I like looking at pictures of other people's quilts for ideas, but then work out the measurements and geometry myself

Sue D said...

I prefer to use patterns.
slrdowney at hotmail dot com

Mariliz said...

I prefer to wing it!

Melissa said...

I absolutely love this FQ set! Gorgeous colours!
I like using a pattern to get the basic shape of a garment but then adding in my own details like different sleeves, pockets etc.

H2Ogirl said...

What a great question. . and lovely giveaway.

I go with patterns and if I don't like something I go out on my own limb. It hasn't hurt me yet.

H2Ogirl said...

I have signed up for your newsletter. . yeah!

Cindy said...

I love making it up as I go. Makes or a great surprise!

Heather A said...

I'm a relative newbie so using patterns (and taking liberties) is the way I roll right now. I hope to get to the "winging it" stage with some success. Eventually!

LOVE these fabrics, btw!

Heather A said...

I'm on the mailing list, too.

Sarah said...

Making something from your own pattern is always more satisfying, but following someone elses is usually easier!

Julia said...

I am definitely a pattern person, as a beginner I haven't got the confidence yet to 'free style'!

Hayley M said...

I like a bit of both, sometimes a pattern and sometimes just improvising as i go :)

Hayley M said...

I'm also on the mailing list, love these colours! :)

Catswhiskers said...

I like to follow the guidelines but always change a bit here and there
A girl can never have too many solids.

Brittany said...

I've mostly used patterns, but am just starting to venture out into making my own graph paper. If only God had made me better at math! ;)

I love these colors! I can see a beautiful Easter table runner with these...

Julia said...

hollymade said...

I like to use patterns as a starting off point, then adapting it to what I need and want.

Still new enough that I prefer to at least start with a pattern (although I might tweak it a little)...

VeronicaMade said...

I love coming up with my own patterns, but if I find a really great pattern that's better than anything I could have thought up, I'll use it. I see no reason to reinvent the wheel for something that's already well-designed.

Carol said...

Cornelia said...

I almost never follow patterns. If I do, the most unimaginablely insane Lucille Ball-type things happen to me. If I don't, I am less stressed and the outcome is more "me."

I tweeted news of the sale @envirohist

LethargicLass said...

I like looking at several tutorials and then taking bits from each... so part winging part pattern lol
