    definitely tulane- i love a riot of color and pattern- and the farmers market thread set. seriously?! all that thread for that much? those colors rock.

  10. Nancey says:

    I like Tulane the best, actually. And of the threads, I like the Woodlands set. I had no idea they had awesome thread sets, so will be ordering!

  11. Barbara says:

    Tulane is the most appealing. It’s hard to choose a thread set, but Essential Country Thread Set is the winner.

  12. Kari says:

    Pearadise is my favorite fabric and the fresh thread set would be my pick for thread. My parents gave me the brights thread set for Christmas and I love having all the colors at my fingertips. I actually really like the scale of the prints on Sweetgrass Prairie and would love to see some like it in brights.

  13. Dayna says:

    I’m torn…I love the bright colors of the Paradise line! But, purple is my favorite color so I’m really drawn to the Sweetgrass Prairie line. I want them both! I love Connecting Threads! I bought some fabric from the Love My Honey line and it made the most adorable baby quilt!

  14. Donna Lucier says:

    I have always enjoyed Connecting Threads fabrics. Great quality/great value. I find the Tulane line intriguing. The Salt and Pepper thread set is a great way to stock up on neutrals.

  15. Shanley says:

    love the essential garden thread set – pretty jewel tones perfect for quilting! and, since most of my sewing lately is aimed at wee ones – I think the paradise line suits me best :)

  16. Jess says:

    Oh my gosh! Sweet Grass Prairie and Farmers Market thread set. So gorgeous for a traditional quilt (and ridiculous cute baby girl smocks)!

  17. Jen B says:

  27. Jill Reynolds says:

    I have to go for Pearadise for the fabric and Rainbow for the thread set. My tastes change daily, bought Kaffe Fassett brights one day and 1930′s reproductions the next. If you asked me which I like best tomorrow, it may be a very different answer! Thanks for the opportunity. :)

  49. Doris says:

    Sometimes I think Connecting Threads gets a bad rap in the QI… the threads are great (once I finally tried them) and I know some gals who have ordered and really liked their fabrics. Glad to see you feature them here.

  50. Doris says:

    BTW, I really like Tulane and the Farmer’s Market thread set.
