Fat quarters for me, please! Altho it costs much less to get strips or squares, they aren't as versatile.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:54 AM , Blogger Gene Black said...

Of the choices, I would choose fat quarters. however, my real choice is a full yard.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:55 AM , Blogger Ellen said...

Fat quarters - I feel like I have more options then for smaller projects like bags, pillows or swap blocks. Thanks for the chance to win! I haven't tried Aurifil yet, but I know lots of quilters who rave about it.

fat quarters - more fabric to work with. Although I did enjoy the challenge of a jelly roll the one time I won one

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:59 AM , Blogger debbie m said...

I find that fat quarters are more versitile and usually my first choice of precuts. I have recently purchased a jelly roll of batiks for a more affordable way to get scrappy into a qult. I've also purchased a few 10" square packs, but have not put them to use. Still trying to figure out what pattern to use.

I love FQ's, but bought roll ups and charm packs too. I think FQ's give me more possibilities.
Thanks for a chance to win this great threat.
Have a great weekend,

I am a follower...from the choices; I prefere fat quarters. But generally buy by the meter or the bolt. thanks for this great giveaway.

I am a fat quarter girl. Although I do have a lot of 10" squares and 5" squares and rollups. Yikes! I dunno...lately it's been FQs though.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:06 AM , Blogger Gwen said...

I like fabric-- in any size, shape or color ;-) -- but I think I prefer fatquarters. They're large enough that you can use just about any pattern that strikes your fancy-- plus they're also big enough to use for little outfits for young children-- use one for the collar, one for the sleeves, etc-- cute stuff!!~ :-)

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:07 AM , Blogger arlette said...

I'm your follower, since my real choice's a full yard isn't there, then I'll say fat quarters!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:08 AM , Blogger ♥Duff said...

I like fat quarters because my options are better.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:09 AM , Blogger Deb said...

I'm a follower, and I'd pick layer cake. I have some fat quarters but haven't done a thing with them. I need to be more creative!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:17 AM , Blogger Anne Carter said...

I have been buying 2.5 inch jelly rolls lately because I found several fun patterns you can do with them. They also sew up quickly.

I like charm packs and jelly rolls. Most of the cutting is already done for you!

I like the convenience of roll up's and charm packs, but the more I get into quilting, the more I appreciate fat quarters and the infinate possibilities they offer.

Fat quarters for me. I always admire the charm packs, etc., but invariably buy fat quarters. More versatility.

Hi! I'm a follower. I would say FQ as they are versatile to use. I've never bought 10" squares but would like to take a chance but think I might have leftovers that I won't be able to use. Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway!

I like FQs for the versatility, but I haven't really given pre-cuts a good chance. I just started buying some recently so maybe my preference will change.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 9:31 AM , Blogger Quilting "b" said...

I try to work with all different pre-cuts. Fat quaters are my favorite but I have a selection of Jelly rolls, turnovers and other pre cuts in my sewing room all the time.

Fat quarters. Thanks for a fabulous giveaway

 
At February 17, 2012 at 9:38 AM , Blogger piece peace said...

I am already a follower. I love fat quarters, but usually I cannot afford to buy an entire line in FQs, so I gravitate toward layer cakes.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 9:40 AM , Blogger Chiska said...

It's a toss up between fat quarters and layer cakes for me.

FAT QUARTERS - love them - cause I am see and feel the fabric better! thanks for the giveaway. I do love that thread! And the colors are wonderful

I think I prefer fat quarters, but to be fair, I haven't purchased the other kinds of pre-cuts yet. I do have charm packs, but I still like fat quarters better. and I love auriful 50wt. It's great!

I love them all but I usually by fat quarters or 1/2 yd bundles if I can afford it. I have been thinking of trying out some charm packs too. LOL someone make up my mmind :)

It really depends what I am wanting to do. But I am leaning towards FQs and I also like Charm packs.

Love fat quarters but sometimes the roll ups are just perfect. (I have a book that I have been meaning to dig into and did a few projects with strips so far.) Thanks for doing this.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 10:26 AM , Blogger Manda said...

I love fat quarters, but it seems most of my projects lately have been made out of charm packs. I love to pick up a couple FQs here and there, though. Thank you! :)

I tend towards jelly rolls, I don't know why I even have several books and patterns but have yet to make a dent in my collection.

When buying pre-cuts I generally go for FQs over the others, but I really like yardage.

Make sure you stop by and put your guess in my quilt givaway by guessing my babys B-day or Birth Weight.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 10:50 AM , Blogger strandkorbtraum said...

I have not much to say in that - we are a bit behind the trend of selling cuts here. So I buy by the meter (yardage for you), depending on the stores you can buy in 10 or 15 or 50 centimeter steps. But nothing comes close to the precuts you mentioned. I could get them online for an enourmous amount of shipping...

I prefer Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls and Charm packs (gosh I have got to stop calling these things cupcakes in my brain). Sorry I couldn't pick just one because I love them equally - like my children. I am already a follower.

I have more quilts made from charm squares, but love Jelly Rolls. I have lots of FQs but don't use them as often. I guess my answer would be 2 1/2" strips. Thanks!

(Who am I kidding....if it's fabric, I love it!)

 
At February 17, 2012 at 11:22 AM , Blogger Marty Mason said...

The thread is beautiful and such a great giveaway. It's yardage for me! I started out with fat quarters, but soon discovered that I was always wanting more than what the fat quarter had to give.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 11:23 AM , Blogger Bonni said...

I've normally just used fat quarters but have branched out to 10" squares and bought an AccuQuilt GO! so know that strip piecing is coming online soon. I think that fat quarters give you the most flexibility.

The pre cuts are convient but more expensive. Im on a budget so buy yardage when on sale. One more hobby that has become a status for the rich. Love nice thread too but not for $10 a spool. A give away would be great as I usually buy the budget from the chain stores.

Layer cakes are my current favorite, but I think that's mostly because they're cheaper to buy than a fat quarter bundle when I want the whole line.

Thanks for the giveaway. :)

Fat quarters as they can always be cut smaller. Occasionally 10" squares if I want an assortment of the same fabric line.

Of the choices you have listed, I prefer fat quarters. In reality, I prefer 1/4 yard cuts and larger. I am a follower.

I love fat quarters because I can get a good assortment and variety of colors and designs and not tie up a lot of money!

I love fat quarters but if that's out of my budget I will sometimes buy a layer cake if I adore the line! By the way, I am a big fan of Aurifil thread for piecing - nice seams and almost no lint.

I just got the 10' twister tool, so layer cakes are my favorite right now!! (are there layer cakes of Veranda? I sooo love it and want it all!!)

I would like 10", layer cake. I cut them all the time for charity quilts, this would give me a break.

I have never tried the Aurifil thread so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I'm a happy follower and I love using all the above! Mostly FQ's though because you have enough fabric to change your mind or make a mistake. ;-) Have a happy weekend!

Of the three, I prefer fat quarters. But I've never tried a roll-up...

Thanks for this giveaway!

Fat quarters for sure - I'm scared I'd run out with the others :)

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:19 PM , Blogger MRZ said...

I have bought and used all 3 - but fat quarters are my favorite.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:24 PM , Blogger JustPam said...

I prefer FQ's. You can make more with them.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:44 PM , Blogger Nancy said...

I love them all! I really love charm packs, because you can do so much with them, but you definitely have to buy more than one! LOL!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:45 PM , Blogger Peggy said...

I perfer to buy Fat quarters myself, they seem cheaper and sometimes you dont need a whole yard or more to do a project so you dont waste alot of fabric.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:52 PM , Blogger Stephanie Zito said...

I lOVE fat quarters and collecting them! I do purchase layer cakes and jelly rolls but most of my purchases are fat quarters! Thanks for the giveaway!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:52 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I prefer fq's just in cast there is a mistake made in cutting and I have never used a roll strip. I love the look and the feel of the aurifil thread has on the fabric.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:57 PM , Blogger Jane S. said...

I prefer fat quarters. There's actually a lot of usable fabric in an 18x22" piece! If I buy them on sale they're economical as well.

Thank you for the chance to win some Aurifil!

I prefer fat quarters- there is more room for creativity

 
At February 17, 2012 at 2:59 PM , Blogger Sharon said...

I prefer Fat Quarters just because I know I have a reasonable amount of material to work with in case I should have an oops. Jelly rolls are growing on me though. Thank you for the giveaway!!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:00 PM , Blogger Cathy said...

I love fat quarters, although I have recently started buying charm squares and jelly rolls. But I always go back to fat quarters. I have been a follower for awhile. Thanks for the great giveaway. Hugs

Fat quarter though I have started bying jelly rolls and charm pack.
Thanks for the chance to win some Aurifil!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:20 PM , Blogger SandyB said...

While I love the precut strips, I will usually purchase fat quarters due to their versatility. Of course, fabrics I love are bought by the yard, since a fat quarter would never be enough.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:28 PM , Blogger Karen said...

My choice is FQs, unless I have a specific idea and know that I need the others. Thanks for the chance to win!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:30 PM , Blogger Mom2RyandSis said...

I like to by at least a fat quarter! Thanks for the chance to win!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:34 PM , Blogger Donna Lee said...

Do u really have to choose just one !I love using them all in different ways , but if i really had to choose just one I guess it would have to be the Jelly Rolls , as I can usually whip up a quilt easily enough with just them .

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:43 PM , Blogger Maria Kievit said...

I prefer fat quarters. Much more useful in all kinds of things, even pillows that my kids are into making now.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 3:50 PM , Anonymous CharL said...

I think I now prefer jelly rolls. Have quite a collection of fat quarters and charm packs but the jelly rolls are very versatile.

I buy fat quarters. But I have a lot of jelly rolls too! Thanks for the giveaway. I love Aurifil threads.... Mary

I prefer to use FQ's although I have done some interesting pieces using the roll-ups.

I reallly enjoy your blog. Thank you for a chance to win something useful. I love fat quarters best.

Hello
I am now a follower of your blog. Of the options you have given I would rather have Fat Quarters. I like to use them in a project and have a wee bit left over to use later. However recently I have been stocking up on long quarters or half metres since I find them more useful.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 4:25 PM , Blogger evelyn said...

It must be an old habit, but I still buy FAT quarters. They are more versatile.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 4:44 PM , Blogger ritainalaska said...

have more uses for fat quarters, but like layer cakes just about as much, and i like aurifil even better. thanx for the opportunity to win some.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 4:51 PM , Blogger Jane said...

All the pre-cuts are so tempting, but the best, I think, is fat quarters. Thanks for the giveaway!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 4:55 PM , Blogger jmniffer said...

I am new to quilting and pre-cut fabrics. So far, I've only used charm packs. I would like to try fat quarters sometime when my budget allows. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:02 PM , Blogger Judy C said...

I like to buy fat quarters, gives me enough to make something small or mix in to make something bigger.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:06 PM , Blogger pinsandneedles said...

I'm a follower and I prefer fat quarters! Thanks!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:12 PM , Blogger angie@sfquilts said...

I am a follower. Thanks for the great giveaway. Size wise I prefer fat quarters, but if I want an entire collection I buy a layer cake.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:22 PM , Blogger VickiT said...

If the money is there, I prefer to purchase fat quarters. If I only have a little cash, then I'll order charm pack just so I have some of that certain fabric line.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:28 PM , Blogger Carol J said...

Although I prefer larger cuts, I would have to defer to the fat quarters. I would only use the other cuts for a specific project. Thank you for the giveaway!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:41 PM , Blogger Tamie said...

I'm a fat quarter girl. Matter of fact, I have very little of other sizes although charm packs and layer cakes do give you a piece of each one in the line. I'd love to try some Aurifil.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:42 PM , Blogger Patty said...

Out of those three, I would have to say fat quarters. I do like the layer cakes from Moda also. Just started following your site. I just love aurifil!!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:45 PM , Blogger Mouster1 said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I prefer fat quarters because you have a lot more fabric to work with. When I'm not able to find the colors I want, I'd definitely use a layer cake, charm pack or jelly roll. They all are great for a quick quilting project.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 5:51 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I usually buy larger cuts of fabric but when I buy smaller cuts, I will buy FQ's.I really love FQ's because there is more fabric to play with. I would really LOVE to win this thread. I have never had a chance to use it and I would like to give it a try. I have heard so much about it. Thanks for the chance to win it.

Fat quarters are my precut of choice.

I love all three. Can use any of them in so many ways.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 6:34 PM , Blogger Zoe said...

I'm a fat quarter girl- my local fabric shop has 'fat quarter friday' where it's buy one, get one free, so I try to go on fridays :)

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:19 PM , Blogger stichnRN said...

of those 3 i would take the fat quarter, because of the versatility. i like the jelly rolls too. i have never bought a layer cake yet.
most of the time i get half yards for blocks. i love scrappy and controlled scrappy quilts.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:23 PM , Blogger Darlene B said...

I'm a follower! I use fat quarters the most - I can do so much with them....

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:40 PM , Blogger Barb said...

If I must choose (sigh-I really like them all)...fat quarters are the best option because of their versatility. Just about anything that can be done with a layer cake or a jelly roll can be done with a fat quarter. Also some collections have prints I know I won't use...I can purchase just what I like with FQ's :)

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:43 PM , Blogger ylrbmk said...

I have LOTS of fat quarters, but I'm starting to buy other precuts. Not long ago, I bought some batik strips. I can't wait to sew them together. Knowing that some of the cutting has been done is motivating.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:45 PM , Blogger quiltma said...

The Jelly Rolls are my first pick, they the layer cakes. I've found that I only buy fats when I have a project in mind.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 7:46 PM , Blogger MaryBeth said...

Of the choices listed, I buy more fat quarters, but what I really buy is yardage.

Ester Forrest posted about this giveway in Quilts of Many Angels..they could really use this thread for their charity quilts.

Although I love fat quarters I love the 10" squares as they are a cheaper way to buy a complete set of fabrics. BUT... I prefer fat quarters as they are more versatile but I can't afford much fabric so I like precuts.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:16 PM , Blogger LJ said...

I am a follower. I don't really have a favorite - have used them all. Generally, it depends on the project. I made a box where you covered cotton rope in fabric and the jelly roll was perfect and much faster.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:22 PM , Blogger JaneB said...

Like many of the people responding here: I love fat quarters, but usually, if I'm buying and don't have a purpose in mind, I will buy more: at least a half or even full yard. I bought a charm pack once and used it for a paper-pieced project with a lot of variation. I've never bought a jelly roll, but I am constantly cutting 2 1/2" strips. I am a pre-washer and presser of all fabric, so that is probably why I don't use a lot of pre-cuts.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 8:26 PM , Blogger Kasia said...

Am a follower...I think that fat quarters and 10in squares are my favorites...more versatile. Love aurafil too...low lint! Thanks for the chance to win!

 
At February 17, 2012 at 9:18 PM , Blogger Mel said...

Of those three, I would go with fat quarters. I am already a follower of your blog.

 
At February 17, 2012 at 9:33 PM , Blogger Jane Smith said...

I get whatever I see that I like. I have enough patterns that finding a project for them shouldn't be a problem. If I have to pick one, I'd go with FQs.

I love getting fat quarters, but jelly rolls are a close 2nd. I'm already a follower :) Thanks for the chance to win!

While I enjoy all types of precuts from time to time, fat quarters are the most versatile. I usually treat myself to at least one when I go o the quilt shop!

At the moment I'm working with a couple of layer cakes. I like the variety of prints in these packs.

 
At February 18, 2012 at 12:51 AM , Blogger Binks said...

I'm more of a fat quarter kind of gal, but I'm new to quilting and haven't tried out all the pre-cuts. I have to stop myself from buying charm packs though. I find them very enticing.

 
At February 18, 2012 at 1:17 AM , Blogger Leah said...

I think I`d prefer FQs. I`ve had a few Charm packs (5inch) and they are OK... I have a 10 inch that I haven`t used much of yet, but find it limiting....
