    Cans and Buttons and Fairy Lanterns both lend themselves to “collections” with complimentary fabrics and quilt patterns that show them off. I think I would buy Cans and Buttons collection. I think Country Living has alot of potential in flannels too!

    The fairy lanterns fabric is by far the prettiest, the others don’t even come close. But isn’t that the same lady who won last time? That doesn’t really seem very fair, to me. I saw so many beautiful and fun designs, and I have to agree that it looks like the finalists were just the people who could beg, borrow, or steal the most votes and not the ones with the most talent. I would think a better idea would be for the staff of Connecting Threads to pick five favorites and have everyone vote from those five.

    I like Fairy Lanterns the best of these but, as the others have said, I hope that the coordinating fabrics will have some different colors. Something lighter and brighter, hopefully, as the blue is very heavy and dark to me personally. Maybe some yellows to coordinate with the sparkles of light.

    Wow, I am surprised these are the winners as I thought there were a LOT better ones in the running. The only one I would buy would be the black and white flower, and depending on what the coordinates and other colors of fairy lights, maybe that one, but the rest wouldn’t even warrant a second look.

    Of the 4 I would go with cans and buttons, I can see fabric and designs going with that one. You have buttons and then flowers, and colors chooses. The Fairy pattern is pretty, but its like a pattern by itself, what could you put with it. Maybe the artist has ideas.
    The other 3 isnt something I would buy.

    As a suggestion for future contests, maybe CT should screen entrants designs before presenting them for voting. It was my understanding that we were voting for a focal design with complementing fabrics to be added after the finalists were chosen. For instance, the cans and buttons design had many variations in the initial lineup. It was hard to distinguish which one would be considered ‘focal’. Some of the designs were simply tone-on-tone and should not have been in the contest at all.
    All that being said, there were some really pretty designs to choose from. It’s just sad they didn’t get the votes they deserved!

    I like Fairy Lanterns for various reasons. But the most important, is that quilts are generally made from pieces of fabrics, not the whole thing. So I look at a fabric with that in mind. Will the design and hard work of the designer be lost when it is cut into small pieces? With Fairy Lanterns I see the potential for lots of complementary pieces. Although to be honest I don’t know how well it will fit into the “feel” of the other fabrics that are sold by Connecting Threads(don’t misunderstand I do like their fabrics but they do have a signature style).

    These may be new designs, however they seem to have a dated feel, in my opinion. If I absolutely had to pick one of these fabric designs, it would be the Country Live, since finding fabric prints suitable for boys (teens) is always a huge challenge.

    I agree with the statements that indicated that these weren’t even on the ‘radar’ and I can’t say I even remember them! Of those presented, Fairy Lanterns is the only one that I might consider. Interesting grouping, but without fabric line potential, in my mind.

    I could have sworn the design contest info had said design a FLORAL fabric but a lot of the designs submitted weren’t floral. I had no idea the Fairy Lanterns designer was a previous winner – which as others have stated does seem unfair to all the other designers. Maybe a previous winner shouldn’t be able to submit for 2 years or something. I think Fairy Lanterns looks like it leans too much towards a Christmas print. Cans & Buttons looks too grandma-ish and boring. Plus we’ve already seen the other too-similar coordinating prints for it since they were also submitted for voting. The Black & White can be used for applique as well as backing and to add extra punch to color prints. I would definitely buy the Black and White because Connecting Threads has lots of color lines but needs something fresh like black and white. The Country Living seems too limited in its uses and buyers. The Tulips is ok just not my thing. Not trying to add more complaints to the many other ones already posted – so congrats to the finalists.

    Not one of these represent anything that I even voted for! I guess I should have made a career out of voting for my favorites! These (excepting the black and white print) all feel like out of the 80’s… like back in the geese and hearts wall paper era…. lovely in their own right for someone of this taste however not modern enough for my liking…. the best by far is the black and white flowers however I have trouble with it being a primary pattern that you could design around… kind of would have thought of it as an accompanying fabric to a different design.. my two cents….

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one dissappointed with the finalists. I spent a lot of time going through each entry and deciding if I would buy them or not. As far as these go I wouldn’t buy any of them. Oh maybe the Fairy lantern, but it looks very Christmasy but blue. I try to pick what might work in quilts or as a stand alone for small projects. Most of the patterns are either too spaced out, too much going on or colors I would NOT pick.

    Very disappointed. There were so many fresh, modern and fun focal prints and these are what won? I see similar stuff at my local thrift store.
    I’d like to make a suggestion or two for next year’s contest. First, the entries should be true focus fabrics, with a discernable theme…a print that lends itself to many coordinates and/or colorways. Second, CT should review the entries and pick the best 25 or so for us to vote on…based on the idea that CT knows what prints can be the basis of a fabric line. Then we vote for a top 5 from the semifinalists. I think we’d get better choices.

    You people are crazy. I have seen so many ugly fabrics used in quilts and based on your comments your are the people who love to make them if you don’t like these fabrics. A DP9 with that black and white flower would be gorgeous. Any of those would make an amazing quilt if the person doing the buying of the fabrics from any line created around these knew what they were doing.

    Cans n Buttons, and Fairies are my taste, very lovely fabrics. Unfortunately I’m in Australia so will never have the opportunity to purchase them.
    I’ve got to say I’m pretty shocked at some of the venom dripping comments posted here. Just because YOU don’t like some or all of them doesn’t give you the right to be pompous and nasty. I’m a designer myself and if these were my designs I’d be heartbroken at the ugly attitude shown by some here. Our different tastes make life more interesting, but please, if you consider your taste superior, then by all means submit your own designs for scrutiny!!!

Only one of the 5 is a pick that I made and that is Fairy Lanterns. It just stood out from the pack as soon as i saw it. I would love to have it as part of my stash, and in several color choices.

    I’m not a fan of the final picks at all. I will support the contest by buying the winner’s fabric though.

    Country Living is my pick. I think it is the most original design.

    Cans and Buttons. The details of the design are very clever and original. I would buy it.

    Fairy Lanterns is far and away the best. It’s so lovely and evocative. It’s the only one I can imagine buying; and I am imagining it, perhaps as draperies in my bedroom?
    Personally, I don’t get what buttons have to do with watering cans, and being “In bloom”; and am not fond of fabrics with sayings/slogans on them.
    I am looking forward to seeing all the coordinating designs, and am very curious to see what will be done for that black and white one. I would think that one might be challenging to do something new and interesting for.

    I’m shocked that quilting people, my community – has reacted this way. The winners are probably reading all of the negative comments, how awful for them. Do you say those kinds of things about all of our quilts that we share?
    My favorite is Fairy Lantern but I can see using the others too.

    Wow – what a diverse group of designs! I can see why people have strong opinions on their favorites and not-favorites. It’s great that they aren’t all boring, predictable clones of one another and I can’t wait to see the designers develop the coordinates. My own fave is Fairy Lanterns – such a great feeling of depth, and it’s elegant without being frilly or overdone.

    My personal favorite is Black and White flowers as it could work in a traditional pattern and it appeals to the modern quilter movement. (from a retail sales perspective, that could be important) Would love to see some of the coordinates for this line adding bright splashes of color. I think Fairy Lanterns is nice, but the glowing lights could prove distracting in a quilt, drawing your eye away from the overall pattern or design.

    I would chose Fairy Lantern. Oh, in comment to the post about Virginia Odien being a top designer for the second time, it was two years ago that she won.
    Is there somewhere that the vote totals for all the designs can be seen? I had some entries and would like to know which of mine did the best. I was offline for the end of the contest.

    I haven’t been to the blog in quite awhile and then though I should take a look at who won the contest. I am sorry to say but I don’t think any of these would make a great line of fabric. I wouldn’t pick any of them to be honest. Just noticed that you picked two more finalists… those ones look much more promising…
