    I have just gotten out of my solids craze. I still am doing a few things with solids but I am now incorporating many more prints once again. I truly find that my taste in fabrics is ever changing and evolving. If I must give an answer than I'd pick prints at this time.

    I love working with Prints. They are fun to match up.

  227. Cecilia says:

    I like to use both! Thanks for the giveaways.

  228. Natureluvr57 says:

    I use both….it's like painting: you need the dark to make the light shine and vice versa. The solids really set off the prints and vice versa. Of course there are exceptions to every rule.

  229. Edie says:

    I use both. Depends on what I am working on.

  230. Jen says:

    Those Fusion Illusion fabrics are one of my favorites!I love printed fabric and tend to work with that the most.But I love the solid quilts that I see other make.

  231. VickiT says:

    It really depends on the project I'm working on. I use both prints and solids. If pushed for one answer, it would probably be prints since I tend to buy more of them that solids.

  232. Emily says:

    Prior to about a year ago, I would have said prints with no hesitation. But this year I have been really, really drawn to solids. So my current answer is solids. Though most of my stash is prints.

  233. Prints!!! I LOVE prints!! Or all solids in a quilt.

  236. lalaluu says:

    I love to incorporate solids in my quilting. They provide great color, but also a place for the eye to rest. Also, it can be fun using a solid color for a background, especially an unexpected one like turquoise or coral!

  237. I love prints and love to use solids for accent. I'm always drawn to the print first!Annette

  244. Dave S. says:

    I'm not too picky…I do enjoy quilting/piecing…I like prints, but ones that aren't too busy. I like orderly prints. Solids are good but without imagination can be antiseptic….I really really really like batiks which kinda offer the best of both worlds.

    I like both. I usually use solids as a background fabric.

  246. Dawn says:

    I like both but I prefer prints a little more.

  256. Rachell says:

    I use lots of solids. I'm becoming bolder in my print choices, but I don't like big prints. I like a lot of blender, tone-on-tone prints, and I like a lot of contrast between my colors, solids and prints–that way, the block and pattern shine!reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com

    I like prints ,especially batiks but I usually add a near sold or two in my projects.

  271. Beth says:

    I use both, though not always together. Some of my favorite projects are great mixes of solids and prints, while other projects use only solids. I'm trying to think of a project that uses only prints and I'm not sure I have made one of those…that might be a good challenge, to see if I could do that and not end up with something that would induce a migraine or a seizure. 😉

    What a fun week! Thanks Lorna for a great giveaway.

    Print or solid really depends on the project at hand. I will say though, I love textured solids (Dimples, Criss Cross, Grunge, Marbles, Painters Canvas, etc.)!

  303. cmykrgb says:

    Have never ever sewn with solids, but Lorna is changing my mind!

  304. I use a lot of prints and solids. I normally choose one focal fabric and then add other complimentary fabrics, both solid and prints from my stash. I love tone on tone prints, small florals, and batiks and find that most of the time they will be my main focal point. Then the rest of my solids and prints seem to just add themselves to the pile for each project!

  305. Liz says:

    Oh I use both, depending on the projects

  306. I definitely use both!

  328. I use both. I love prints. Solids are beautiful too

  329. Unknown says:

    I definitely use both!
