  2. I am always drawn to contemporary, bright fabrics - but not necessarily modern designs. I love to see traditional patterns in brighter or 30's style fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win...

  6. I would say I'm a modern scrappy quilter

    ReplyDelete
  7. Currently Im into Modern Quits, The patterns are usually easy enough for all the baby quilts Ive been making lately

  8. Your indelible quilt is making me swoon. Is it bad that I'm not sure I have a style? I like bright colors. I'm kind of geeky, but I love traditional style blocks just as much as funky modern ones.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm traditional usually, but I'm drawn more and more to the newer styles as time goes on. These new fabric designs were "odd" to me at first, but I'm opening up to them more now.

  10. I'm traditional, leaning towards old-fashioned :)

  11. I'm not sure I have a particular style, I'll have a go at most things but I do know I love colour! For me brighter is better.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I am more into the modern quilts...love all the fabric designs.

    ReplyDelete
  13. My style is eclectic but most of my projects include at least an element of scrappiness and use mainly bright, clear colors.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm a wannabe improv/modern!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a bit mixed but loving the brights on white at the moment & lots of the quirky picture prints around lately.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like a lot of styles - I love making modern quilts with bright fresh colors and whites, greys, and blacks but then I also like making sampler quilts. What I have a problem with is making scrappy quilts - I am too much of a type A to do a pure scrappy w/o some planning

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm a modern traditional quilter. I love traditional patterns and fabrics but with a modern twist, does that make senth? My favorite designers are Bonnie & Camille, Fig Tree and Carrie Nelson you can never be wrong with one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My style is colorful and modern traditional-- I'm not afraid to mix civil war fabrics in either, if they aren't too muddy. And I love to use hand screen printed fabrics too.
    Clothingwise? Jeans and tunics all the way :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. My personal style of dress is pretty conservative, my quilting is modern, my home is very traditional modern.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your Indelible project looks absolutely amazing! I can't wait to read about it when you finish.

    I'm still trying to find my style! LOL Lean towards the Modern aesthetic probably but I'm trying different things.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am in transition. Feeling free to do newer modern styles, yet trying to finish up some projects the past. Oregonquilt.blogspot.com

  22. I love modern fabrics used in traditional ways.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My style is traditional scrappy. But I do love using some of the happy fabrics from current designers, esp Bonnie & Camille and Lori Holt. Love those bright happy fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  24. My style is scrappy. People just give me things they don't want and I make good use of them. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I'm more of the Heinz 57 variety type of quilter! LOL LOL From scrappy, traditional to modern and Art quilts... I love them all! I really can't say that I have a style because I make so many different things! I do enjoy Modern quilts a little more now. There are a lot of great designs being created! Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Probably some mix of modern/whimsical.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't really have a style. I do love the modern quilts I am seeing all the time. I see a pattern and go for it. I usually end up changing the color scheme of the pattern to what color I want to use at that time.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have to say I like modern in piecing and quilting....

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hope my style comes across as modern quirky :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. i love bright fabric with traditional blocks

    ReplyDelete
  31. i am sure I have a style. I like fabric with dots, flowers and strips. Colors depend on mood, can fall in love with frilly, period prints and bold colors.

  35. Modern traditionalist. My root are in traditional but my heart is in modern.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm not too sure what my style is, it kind of varies from week to week.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my goodness. that new quilt looks amazing.... so different...

    as for style... as fifty something I feel I am still trying to find myself!!! anything goes...

  38. My style is somewhat hard to explain, I like bright and bold, traditional with a twist and patterns that are complex and interesting. The only quilt I have done recently that was just straight squares was the Kate Spain charm square swap, where I wanted the fabric to shine not the pattern


    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't think I have just one style. I do love the modern quilts out, but I think I'm pretty eclectic.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love traditional. My modern pieced are enjoyed during the making process; however, were intended as gifts upfront.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like to call my style naive modern. This allows me to avoid precision piecing where all the pints meet perfectly and every seam is exactly 1/4 inch. Maybe another name for my style is slap dash and impatient??!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm not sure I have one particular style either. I love all kinds of quilts - just not too crazy about the art quilts. I want my quilts to be used like the ones my grand mother made. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like working in a lot of different sytles but I'm definitely not a brights person! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Scrappy definitely. I love a little bit of everything rather than matching anything.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My style is bright colors, a little bit old-fashioned mixed with a little bit new. It's really all over the place!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I do not think I have a style yet, trying lots of things, started with crazy patchwork as I like embroidery, red work on the to rty list and doing little bunny blocks, so far 14 done. Book looks interesting, keep checking but not available at amazon here in the UK yet

    ReplyDelete
  47. I look to the web for ideas....then make stuff up as I go without any real pattern so...experimentalist? And almost always with earth tone batiks.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi Jane! Thank you so much - I'm so so happy I won the gift certificate! Your NEW Project looks very exciting and those Fabrics are gorgeus! My style is scrappy, fun and perhaps sometimes modern. But please don't count me for the give away - that wouldn't be right.
    Can't wait to choose NEW Fabrics! x Teje

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm traditional, but at the moment I'm really into very bright, bold colors.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My style is hard to describe, but I'll call it modern vintage. I love the quilts from the 30's dressed up a bit with modern fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think my style is colourful and girly with anything geometric thrown in! Have to say your Indelible quilts looks incredible! (P.S. Not sure if your giveaway extends to UK but had to let you know how much I love that quilt!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the older, traditional quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm pretty modern with my style, mostly because it requires an eye for the feel of a piece but with less effort (um, not about to undertake a Dear Jane any day!). It's like abstract art to me, and I love that!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What is my style, you may ask? I'm not sure I have one yet! I'm "eclectic" I guess. As I look around at what others have made, I gather ideas and make something unique. I usually choose bold, colorful fabrics with simple templates. I do like variety!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I guess my migrate to bright & cheerful with a more traditional feel. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh fun! I guess my style would have to be called eclectic! I'm still at the learning stage, soaking it all up like a sponge!! Always trying something new, a different challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  57. My style is evolving. I am becoming "more modern" all the time. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. mine is modern, but depending on the occasion, sometimes I'll flip into traditional (but with a modern twist!)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well, I never thought much about style, LOL and I've been quilting for over 40 years.
    If I had to choose I'd say it was traditional. I like piecing best, but have tried lots and lots of different kinds of quilting. I, now often use modern quilting ideas for the backs of my quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am a traditional quilter but I'm being drawn to some contemporary designs. I love scrappy quilts; the more fabrics, the better. Thanks for the giveaway!

  61. Wow, Jane, great quilt in the making! I tend to make traditional blocks with modern fabrics and a twist.

    ReplyDelete
  62. My style is very eclectic. My projects tend to be traditional when sewing for my home. We have a 1930s English Tudor home, but when I sew for others I get a litter braver and use bright colors and take chances. There is nothing that I don't like though.

  63. My style would range from modern quilting to custom art quilts :) What a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I like traditional patterns, with scrappy fabrics. I like lots of colour!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I haven't quite defined my style yet. I seem to like everything quilty!! But I guess I gravitate toward graphic designs and bright colors.

    ReplyDelete
  66. My style is pretty much anything. I love traditional, modern, scrappy, applique, etc. I love things that are "easy" as I don't have a lot of time to spend on making things. Working full time takes away from that! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the scrappy look, whether using a complete range of using leftovers! Thanks for the opportunity to win a giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hmmm I guess you would say my style is eclectic! A little bit of improv, sometimes I use a bit of old fashioned homespun and then other times I make a quilt from a pattern that I love! Eclectic contemporary I suppose!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Honestly, whatever I like. I never pieced because I couldn't bring myself to do all those little fiddly pieces, and I didn't handquilt because I didn't like all those traditional designs. But then I found crazy patch and stash quilts and anything goes with color and design and FMQ!!!! So now I do it all but still not so traditional. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I am definitely a more traditional, scrappy & country girl. Love Kim Diehl, Kansas Troubles & primitive quilts. This book is on my list. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  78. My clothing style is comfortable... but if I was physically healthy & fit I'd dress like Taylor Swift (more vintage.) :-) For quilt style I have no idea, it's more sentimental than anything. Is that a style? BTW that is the loveliest quilt I've seen in a LONG time! WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  79. My style is quite modern with a classic twist!

    ReplyDelete
