My favorite medium would be cotton with wool a close second.

Ann in PA said...

Needle-turn cotton applique always had a place in my heart when I first started quilting (a gazillion years ago LOL) Now my favorite is wool applique. Wool looks so yummy and is sooooo easy to do.

Jonette said...

I enjoy wool applique.

martha said...

I love cotton and wool! to me it is like bread and butter!

Colleen said...

Wooollllll... always my favorite! I love everything else, but wool takes the prize :o)

The Primitive Window said...

Happy Friday!

I love Cotton :-)

Christine said...

I love working with wool too but stitching on linen is therapeutic! Have a great weekend!

Ken and Judy said...

My favorite medium is cotton. Nice cotton. Cotton with some body to it. Cotton that can be sewn or embroidered on. Cotton that can be appliqued. Cotton that washes and dries so nice and shrinks just enough to add texture to the quilt.

Chris said...

Love, love, love them all... really do!

Heather said...

Cotton is my favorite...what can I say, I've been a quilter for 20 years. I've just recently discovered wool appliqué and I'm really loving it too!

Tammy said...

Hand embroidery done with cotton perle. Especially Red Work.

susiefloozie said...

Any project using cotton and/or wool makes my heart sing!

debbie haggard said...

I am a fan of wool first and foremost. I love the texture of it, and the fact that it is so forgiving when working with it. You dont need to have the precision with it that cotton demands.

Julee said...

needle turn applique next would be wool projects...thanks for the giveaway.

Kristy said...

I am falling in love with wool and the simplicity of blanket stitching. Really I love all mediums, just what I am in the mood for at the time! :-) K-

Sandi said...

Largely I've been working with wool. I love to mix it with cotton, flannel, velvety and embellish. But I also love traditional cotton applique.

Moon Spun Meadows said...

I have to say that I love cotton with wool as a close second, have not done much with wool...other than using it for felting... have made a few penny rugs....I also card wool, spin it, dye it, knit or weave with it....I have bought a couple of kits, just have not gotten them done up yet! I find the wool applique easier to work with.

Vicki Jo said...

I love to work with cotton fabrics. My friends know how much I love scraps of cotton fabric and they give me bags of scraps! I sort them and let the piles I make dictate what sort of quilt I make. Haha! My favorite medium are cotton scraps that speak to me! Thanks for your wonderful blog and giveaway.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Marlene said...

My favorite medium is linen. I love the look, texture, and color. Wool applique is so cool. I finished a wool on wool applique piece for my sister for Christmas and it was fun and the results were stunning. Wool on cotton, I've done, but cleaning the pieces worry one.

Cheryl said...

My favorite medium is...WOOL!! LOVE IT!!!!

Susie said...

My favorite is wool applique. It is so forgiving.

Kelly said...

Mine has always been linen and antique samplers, but I love doing little wool projects, I've been dabbling in both

Clare said...

I love different threads to apply to mainly cotton or linen. They give a great texture to a project. Happy Stitching.

Diane Wyte said...

Lorene Holbrook said...

oh my this is hard! I like to piece and quilt during the day. in the evening I sit by my sweetie, and do hand embroidery and wool. it is so relaxing for me. thanks for the chance!

Marian said...

Wool is so forgiving! You don't have to worry about the galloping horse view of it!

Angeliasue said...

I forgot to tell you that I love wool and cotton! You may have to delete 1 of these comments! I don't expect 2 opportunities. Angeliasue angel4u2@cox.net

Love wool for applique and cotton for quilting and the best is a combination of the two. thanks for sharing

Jacqueline said...

Whew I am worn out just reading about all you got done this week.

I am a cotton and wool type of girl. Thanks for a chance. I love your blog

brenco1 said...

My favorite medium is anything that goes with handwork to relax with. Wool has become one of my favorites in the recent months. Living in the south it has been a little harder to take flight, but is now soaring.

Marianne said...

I love both wool and cotton. I always like to have "hand work," so that is why wool works for that "itch, " and machine work is done in cotton.

I love to share my joy of both wool and cotton with anyone and everyone.

Quilting by the Lake said...

I enjoy working with wool! I like all the steps, tracing, cutting, fusing, stitching, and TaDa... The finish! It's so nice to see this weeks designs. It was -4 here last night and the designs certainly cheer me up. There is a light at the end of the long winter tunnel!

bfreeman56 said...

Wool is quickly becoming a favorite with me! I love doing handwork and you get such great results with so little effort!

Doreen said...

I am just starting to use wool so I don't know if I love it or not. But I do enjoy trying new things!

Glynis said...

I'm addicted to working with wool.
It's so easy and forgiving to work with and there are so many beautiful patterns out there.

Kim Q said...

I'd have to say cotton, simply because the only wool I own is yarn...I'm a knit-wit. Thanks for the chance to win. ;-)

Stitches said...

I am just now working on my first wool project and I am liking it very much..I love back basting applique a lot too. Can't make up my mind which is a favorite yet.

Marlene said...

I am learning wool and I think it will be my new favorite. I love any hand work.

Jackie said...

I like to applique wool onto cotton!

wendy said...

My favorite is cotton with wool a close second. I'm just afraid that the wool will get eaten by the moths and end up with holes in my work. I love all of your designs done in both mediums! I can't wait until the next block of your BOM!!!

Pat White said...

I love working with wool...its additive!

Cat54 said...

WOOL!!! Warm and comforting whether I'm stitching or wearing..Luv it!

I am a Cotton farmers daughter :) I used to help him in the fields, Picking it was a challenge, but he payed me for every sack i filled! Cotton has a special place in my heart.

Linda said...

I always come back to cotton. I love homespun and repro fabrics. And It's even better when combined with wool.

My favorite would be cotton. I'm hoping to try wool one day. Thats for the great giveaway. Hugs

Wow you squeezed a lot into one week! As long as I'm working with my hands I'm happy - natural fibres like cotton and wool are my favourites :-)

Needle turn applique is my sweet spot. I usually work with cotton but wool is really tempting me also.

I love wool the best!!!

Wool is my favorite appliqué, but for piecing I love cotton. What I really like is a nice pieced background and wool for the embellishment.

Vic in NH said...

I'm a cotton-aholic with a fierce dose of reproduction snobbery to boot! Thank you for the chance.

I love to use cotton, but am wanting to try some wool patterns out.

Nettie said...

I love to make a "patchwork" quilt and use all cotton fabrics and mix in a few wool pieces! I think it makes the quilt much more interesting and wool is so much easier to appliqué than cotton!
Thanks!

Sorry your ear is still giving you troubles. I think it is hard to pin-point my favorite. I love wool and cotton applique, as well as needle punch and doll making. I'm really enjoying working wool applique right now. There are so many patterns I want to make.

I love doing appliqué using wool with cotten a close second for needle turn appliqué. Thank you for your inspiring posts.



Mary Ann said...

I have sewn with fabric for years and only recently began working on wool projects - I am so hooked. Watching what everyone is doing for the first free block, the pineapple, to get a feel of what to use for the background. Your shop has oodles of goodies to explore and contemplate. Have begun collecting pieces of wool and can't wait to use them. Thank you for giving us the chance to win.

kathiquilts said...

so hard to choose-- love making quilts but woolwork is also a passion. Think it mostly depends on what side of the bed I get up on!!
