    This is a tough one, but I’d have to go with Pearadise. Very cute and clever name, and adorable prints!

  2. Anne says:

    I love everything, but my favorites are Pearadise and the Celebration thread set. Thank you!

  3. Rosalyn says:

    I love Tulane and Celebration!!!

  4. Mary White says:

    I adore the Sweetgrass Prairie fabric line….reminds me of the frocks that little girls in the 1800′s would have worn…I love the reproduction fabrics!
    The Homestead thread set looks like it would match the Sweetgrass Prairie fabrics perfectly…gotta love when threads and fabrics all coordinate!

    • Patty says:

      I agree with you Mary, I love the Sweet grass prairie and the Homestead thread colors are perfect. I am hoping to order that thread set soon, I have most other sets. Their thread is so nice, beyond nice.

  5. Eve Bell says:

    I love the colors in the Sweetgrass Prairie collection! They are gorgeous!

  6. Maria Kievit says:

    I really like the Sweetgrass Prairie fabric line. Nice and soft. The Thread set would be the Rainbow collection. Thanks for the giveaway

  7. Michelle says:

    I can’t decide between the Pearadise line or Tulane. I love the cuteness of the first and the richness or the second. I think I’ll have to go with Tulane. Thanks for hosting a giveaway and thanks to CT for the sponsoring!

  8. Sarah Jane says:

    I love the Tulane line and the Essential Garden thread set! Of course, they’re all beautiful and I’d be glad to work with any of them. Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  9. Definitely the Tulane! Love Connecting Threads!

  10. Tina says:

    I would have to go with the Pearadise for its cuteness, but the Sweetgrass Prairie is nice too!

  11. Betty says:

    I like the old fashioned charm of Sweetgrass Prairie. The Rainbow thread set would be great for making kids quilts.

  12. Safieh says:

    Thanks so much, I placed a huge Connecting Threads order after your last post, so I am now a convert! I would get the Sweetgrass Prairie collection because I’m trying to beef up my calico collection. Also it didn’t take me 2 seconds to pick the Beach House Thread set, because it has all my favorite aquas! Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Joyce Mitchell says:

    My favorites are Celebration Thread set and Sweetgrass Prairie. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  14. KJ says:

    Tulane is gorgeous. Nice and vibrant and bold. Looks like the Homestead collection has some pretty good blender colours. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  15. MoeWest says:

    I like Pearadise and the Fauna thread set. Thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Leslie says:

    that Tulane is like New Orleans – (Tulane University) hot hot hot!!!

  17. I’m really liking the Tulane fabric set and the Confections thread set! Sign me up, please!

  18. Cindy B says:

    I really like SweetGrass collection and the Confection thread set.

  19. mammafairy says:

    I like the Sweetgrass collection, I like the Beach house set, the colours are just lovely. If I could I would have all the sets!

  20. KimR says:

    Wonderful giveaways—tough decisions! LOL If I had to choose ONE of the fabric collections…I guess it would be Pearadise…though Tulane is great too! Even the thread sets are difficult to choose from–I guess I would have to go with the rainbow collection for now…again though Celebration and Confection are nice too!

  21. Tara says:

    Sooo in love with Tulane. Would love any thread sets but I do like celebration!

  22. One fabric collection oh – hard to choose but I do like the sweetgrass prairie- though it would depend on who I was making a quilt for- the tulane would be great for a modern feel design and the sweetgrass for a more traditional pattern.
    I love your threads so any of the sets would be a terrific addition to my collection.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  23. Nicole says:

    I love the Tulane collection and the Rainbow thread collection.

  24. Have to say I really like the “Sweetgrass Prairie” collection. Am in late 70″s so
    naturally like the older fabrics. But I love fabric and sure have planty but
    Connecting Threads makes it tempting to buy more and more. Their thread collections
    are all beautiful and have used them for several years now. Hope I win something!!!

  25. I love Tulare and celebration!

  26. my favorite of the three would be pearadise. and thread set? how do you choose, they are all so pretty?! i guess i would get the most use out of homestead or woodland.

  27. Garen says:

    woodland threads. Tulane for the fabric, although the prairie collection is very sweet as well

  28. I love their thread! The colors are great and durable. Great job, Connecting Threads!!!!

  29. Amanda Best says:

    I really like the Sweetgrass Prairie by Country Essentials fabric collection and the Confections thread set.

  30. Jen says:

    I love them all however if I have to choose it is Pearadise and also the celebration thread set. Beautiful and fun.

  31. Becky F says:

    I like Tulane and the Celebration thread set.

  33. Carla G says:

    I love the new Tulane fabric collection! And I’d choose the Essential Bright Thread Set. Thanks for a chance to win this wonderful giveaway! :)

  34. Rhonda Best says:

    I like them all but my favorites would be the Confection Set of threads and the Sweetgrass Prairie by Country Essentials fabric collection.

  35. This is so tough, but my favorite would have to be Sweetgrass Prairie! The purples are just calling out to me. For the thread set, definitely the Rainbow set- I can never resist brights!

    But they are ALL very lovely :)

  36. Elizabeth McDonald says:

    I love the new Tulane collection — saw it first last week when their new catalog came. My favorite prints are those with various colored lines in them — almost looks woven, and I love the bright colors. My favorite of the new thread sets is Celebration; it includes so many colors that I sew with regularly!

  37. Leah says:

    Love the Essentials Fresh Thread set, and Sweet Prairie Grass is my favouirte of the 3 new ones, but love the Symphony of Blue and Urban Odyssey

  38. Love the Confection thread set and the Tulane fabrics … yum!

  39. Carole says:

  40. Bobbie Joe Klebe says:

  41. Jessica says:

    I LOVE Tulane! and celebration thread. Wonderful bright colors!

  42. Carol says:

    I love sweetgrass prairie! So many possibilities!!!

  43. Glenda Gosey says:

    I love this fabric! Tulane is my favorite, I love bright colors.

  44. Kristina Penfold says:

    Connecting Threads IS amazing! The Tulane fabrics are so vivid – just right for my boys who appreciate some some bright “not flowery” prints. The thread sets are harder to choose from, but I think Celebration’s deep and vibrant colors call to me the loudest! I really hope to win!
