    —Angelia Ulrich on September 4, 2019
  • My stash probably most resembles spring because I love floral fabrics. But my stash includes all colors as I truly love all the seasons in the year, and I love to make special quilts for every month and holiday of the year. I love so many of the quilters and their books that Martingale features in this post. Keep up the good work for us quilters! Thanks so much.

    —Ann West on September 4, 2019
  • Definitely FALL. I love the bright yellows and oranges. My house looks like fall year around with a few other colors thrown in for the rest of the seasons. Love Grandmother’s Pride from Autumn Bouquet, Dance of Autumn Leaves from All For Fall and Building Blocks from Kansas Troubles Quilters Prairie Life.

    —Darliss Peabody on September 4, 2019

  • My fabrics are mostly in fall colors in yardage. I love to make quilts in those colors for my family room. If I need a boost spring or summer I purchase charm squares for table runners or table toppers. I have a collection of holiday fabrics I use for gifts such as table runners, gift bags & small lap quilts for color at the holidays.
