  1. Ack! AH’s mocca in chocolate comes in a lawn. I would love to wear something made of that .. Now, if I would just make sewing for myself a priority. …

  2. Can’t choose just one! But I love most of the lawn/voiles, perfect for spring and summer tops. Thanks for all of the giveaways!

  3. Oh my, yes to that top! Perfect for a summertime nursing mama. I can’t imagine anything better for it than the A. Henry blue bell pink lawn, either.

  4. I am really into over-sized polka dots and gingham right now (like Sew Cherry Brown Gingham by Riley Blake)…love their selection.

  5. I love the four square voile by Anna Marie Horner, it’d be lovely set on the bias in the swing top or an equally swingy skirt!

  6. the alexander henry lawn “blue bell” in pink and blue are both gorgeous! i haven’t seen them around for a while!

  7. I think I may have to try that pattern as a maternity top this summer. I bet it would look great in that AH Blue Bell cotton lawn fabric! Thanks!

  8. I would probably choose Starling in Periwinkle Blue by Alexander Henry Fabrics – my girlies would love this.

  9. So difficult to pick a favorite! I’ll go with what I’m most inspired to create something out of, which would have to be the Indigo Skulls in Aqua by Alexander Henry. I love this one. I’ve seen it before, but I keep forgetting about it.

  10. What a great giveaway! My favourite pattern is “Backyard Baby Birch Forest by Patty Sloniger”.

    I keep the finger crossed,

  11. I’m loving the Metro Market Strawberries on Aqua by Monaluna. It’s so summery! And that’s exactly what I’m in the mood for!

  12. I really like the Hello Luscious! by Basic Grey. The Swing Top is so cute. If I were able to make a top that would be one I would have to make for my daughters. Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. “Mocca in Chocolate Cotton Lawn by Alexander Henry Fabrics” – because I have just been identified (ahum) as an Autumn Color Type, so these colors should work for me?! Curious to find out…

  14. I just love the woodland series – it is so very cute and I could make so many things with it!

    Thank you.

  15. Love the Candy Hearts on Pink by Timeless Treasures — memories of childhood Valentines Day, decorating shoeboxes and writing up all those valentines. Sigh.

  16. There are so many beautiful fabrics! I really love The Woodlands Yard Scene by Anthology Fabrics – I think it would make an adorable dress for my girls.

  17. I like the Sea Scallop – coral. I can’t get enough of stripes right now and this one’s just a little change to straight stripes. Plus the colors are great.

  18. I’m loving Pat Bravo’s Dreaming in French Fruity Praline 🙂

    Thanks for the yummy giveaway!

  19. I love the Clementine Mini Flower Cotton Lawn by Timeless Treasures. Nice and “Springy” 🙂

  20. sigh…that’s a hard one!!! I’m looking at some of the boy fabric–especially ones like the ‘beep beep’ and the crayon one..super cute!

  21. So hard to pick just one favorite! I am loving Lush by Patty Young and Nest by Valori Wells among many others. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  22. Being slightly obsessed with boy fabric, I chose: Bumper to Bumper Slate by Alexander Henry. My 2 y old would LOVE it!
    Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  23. I can hardly decide between Lolli Dot in Play by Michael Miller (I could coordinate with my daughter’s Dino Dress) or the Nicey Jane Lindy Leaf in Pink by Heather Bailey which does two of my favorite things: pink and red. Man. Decisions!

  24. I’m getting ready to renovate the baby’s bedroom and the Woodland Tails collection would be so perfect to use for decorating!

  25. I love the the Oh La La Cercle De Fleurs Red by Pillow and Maxfield. It feeds my current obsession with red/hot pink. Would make a lovely summer top.

  26. Love the “Hello Luscious Floral Blissful Fashionista by BasicGrey”… it has all the colors I’d use for a baby girl nursery (and we find out next week if we get to do a girl nursery or a boy nursery!)

  27. I would love to try sewing something with voile like the Little Folks voiles I’ve admired for so long, it seems like a great weight for a spring top.

  28. I would spend the gift certificate $$ on a few charm packs of Hello Luscious by Moda. I have the perfect project all planned out!

  29. I have been lusting after the A Walk in the Woods Little Red on Pink by Aneela Hoey fabric for weeks now. It’s so precious!!

  30. I adore the Country Lane Bed and Breakfast Brown by Bari J. Ackerman in both brown and red. I can see it in dresses for my three girls!

  31. Oh my goodness! There are so many wonderful fabrics, I had to stop myself after I had seen just a few because I couldn’t narrow it down!

    I love Wrenly Wildfield in Gypsy, Get Together Flock of Birds in Grey, Hello Luscious Inviting Floral Damask in Natural, Hello Luscious Inviting Floral Zest in Natural, and Sea Beauties by Michael Miller. I might even have to get extra of the last one to make a top for my daughter, too! 🙂

  32. So many pretty fabrics! I really like the Good Life Bird Gages in Garden … but it’s hard to actually pick just one. 🙂

  33. SO many great fabrics! I think I like belle butterfly medallions the most! Thanks for hosting this!

  34. We’re just getting geared up to start Farmer’s Market this year so i especially loved Metro Market Strawberries on Aqua by Monaluna. Thanks for the giveaway.

  35. I love the Blue Bell in blue Cotton Lawn by Alexander Henry Fabrics, it would be great with a spring top!

  36. My favorite is the new “Fly a Kite” collection of fabrics by Riley Blake Designs – so cute.

  37. Love the top! Specially now, when my daughters is coming, my fav fabric is “The woodlands floral on red” by Aanthology Fabrics.

  38. Wow– Fashionable Fabrics has an amazing selection to choose from!! One fabric that I really love is Lark Heirloom in Blue Sky by Amy Butler! Beautiful! Thank you so much for the chance to win!! 🙂

  39. I quite like “Fashionista Floral Bouquet” in aqua from the Hello Luscious Collection by Basic Grey (for Moda). I hadn’t seen this collection yet. Very cute!

  40. Oh wow…I’ve been looking for fabric to recover my sewing chair and this would be perfect! Sew Now! Sew Wow! black and white Home Dec by Alexander Henry

  41. My favorite is the lightness of the print: Backyard Baby Windy Day in Aqua. The print is so creative and fresh! I can’t wait to make clothes for my son in this print!

  42. A Ghastlie Night in green from Alexander Henry i love all the Ghastlies, this is one of the only ones she has left. i have already purchased some from her she had the whole collection at one time.(i guess lots of people love it)
    i love it because i love all things spooky, this fabric can be used outside of Halloween for other great projects

  43. Way too many great fabrics to just pick one. It totally depends on what I would make! There are some great animal prints by Alexander Henry, but that wouldn’t be sewing for me.

  44. Lots of cute boy fabrics! I love the ready, set go helicopters, and can’t find it anywhere in my town! Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. LUSH STARGAZER IN TURQUOISE! Gorgeous selection of fabrics…hard to pick a favorite but I can see a fab summer dress in this choice!

  46. ANOTHER giveaway? Dang girl!

    I love the Woodland Tails Deer in Cream by Sheri Berry. Thanks for the chance!

  47. I really need some new, I’m-not-pregnant-anymore tops that will make me feel good about myself, and I think some of those spring print lawns would do the trick!

  48. Hmmm… lots of prettty fabrics, difficult choice… I’ll go for Get Together Bears in Woods in Sea by David Walker.

    Thanks for the chance!

  49. A-hahahahahahaha, how do you expect me to choose a favorite! I keep saying “that’s my favorite; I’ll pick that one.” Then I look some more and find a new favorite. And then a new one. And then. And then…
    But I’ll stop now, for my own sanity (and wallet), and say my fave is Robot Factory in Earth by Robert Kaufman. I could make some shorts or do detailing on a shirt for my son with it.

  50. Thanks for the chance to win! The Woodland Tails Owls in Cream by Sheri Berry caught my eye right away. I think it would make an adorable fall dress for my daughter.

  51. Woodland Tails Deer in Cream by Sheri Berry ~~ There were many really. I did not know about the website so no I do 🙂

  52. Wrenly Wildfield in Gypsy by Valori Wells is really beautiful and would make a great top! thanks for the giveaway.

  53. My favourite is Farmdale Blossom in Turquoise – it would make a great summer blouse!

    (I also really like the flannel bike fabric from Michael Millar – how fun would that be for pyjamas!)

  54. I love the Freshcut Graphic Mums Turquoise by Heather Bailey. I think it would make a great spring top!

  55. So many awesome prints to choose from, how do you choose?
    I guess first pick would be Taza Little Navina by Dina Designs.

  56. I think Sugar Hill Birdy in Pink by Tanya Whelan would make a beautiful spring-y blouse. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  57. Urban Zoologie Whales in Bright by Ann Kelle is adorable! Think I’ll be doing a project this week after seeing so many beautiful fabrics in your giveaways this week. Thanks for the chances!

  58. I have to say that picking a favorite is extremely difficult! I do like the Lark Heirloom fabric, but all of the “Delighted” fabrics by Riley Blake are also so pretty! I can picture it with the beautiful swing top!

  59. Oh, I would get some Lush fabric (by Patty Young) to pull together with some bright pink solid fabric that I have for my daughter’s Easter dress.

  60. I like Good Life Bird Cages in the organic fabrics category. Thanks for the chance to win. The spring top sewalong is a great idea!

  61. so glad they’ve reprinted Freshcut, the Graphic Mums Turquoise by Heather Bailey are my faves:)
    Thanks to you and FF for the fab giveaway!

  62. Darling Clementine Mini Flower Cotton Lawn. It’s such a pretty floral! It would make a lovely swing top!

  63. I so love the Timeless Treasures Cotton Lawn collection…. the simplicity the darling. Heck, its even in the Darling Dotty name!!! -they just remind me of sweet spring tops and dresses! Super lucky to have these designers!

  64. I’m smitten with Freshcut Graphic Mums in Turquoise by Heather Bailey. I can see that fabric made up into one of these super sweet swing tops!

  65. I really like Darling Clementine Dotty Stripe Cotton Lawn by Timeless Treasures. I think it might make a great tunic.

  66. There are so many nice ones to choose. I like the Woodland Tails Lamb to use in a quilt for my future grandaughter ( who will be here in 10 years 🙂 )

  67. The boy fabric – fantastic!! But my favorite is Spotted Owl lt blue. My little one would love it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  68. I think the Backyard Baby bug jars would make sweet trim on a pair of pants for my two year old son. Or maybe a summer shirt too!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  69. the blue bell lawn is one of my all-time favorite fabrics. I’d love to make a cute summer dress out of it!

  70. I love the Darling Clementine Tossed Flowers, I think it would make the cutest mother / daughter matching skirts!

  71. I really like the Blue Bell in pink lawn–I wish they had more voile! And I want some Little Apples!

  72. Oooooh! I love the “Walk in the Woods” layer cake, but since this is spring top time I’d have to go with Amy Butler’s Daisy Chain clematis in grey. Love, love, love it!!!

  73. jeez, you’re just asking the impossible, aren’t you? there’s no way to choose just one favourite, but i always adore all of the polka dot prints by Michael Miller.

  74. The Chick Chick Hens in Summer by Robert Kaufman Fabrics Organic Cotton is pretty cute 🙂
