    No doubt I’m in the minority, but Autumn Harvest all the way!

    Spring is the one! I’m definitely in the mood to get out of autumn and winter and on to the look and feel of spring.

  39. Sharon Sabatilne says:

    Spring Brights!

  40. Gretchen says:

    Looks like spring is the majority pick and I agree, spring it is. Perhaps we are all tired of this crazy winter here in the northern hemisphere?

  41. Elizabeth A Ebert says:


  42. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    To my eyes, the Autumn cover shows off the blocks better. I would be more drawn to it if I were looking at it on a bookshelf.

  43. Karen Weidler says:

    Autumn Harvest gets my vote.

  44. Claire G says:

  52. Darlene H says:

    I love the Spring Brights version.

    Spring cover

  61. galen says:


  62. Sandi says:

    Autum harvest captures my eye.

  63. Hudy says:


  64. Spring! However we have 15″ of snow this am!SPRING,,

  65. Marie Chantal Laporte says:


  66. Laura says:

    Spring brights

  67. Marilyn R says:

    I like both but if it’s going in a cover then Spring. It pops more.

  68. Jane says:

    I love Spring brights

  69. Lori says:

    I’m torn, maybe put one on the front and the other on the back cover.

    • Linda H says:

      They sell the back cover for advertising and would lose revenue. I think it’s a great idea, though!

      • Carrie says:

        Not exactly. Book publishers – especially Martingale – never sell or use the back cover for advertising. It is used to describe the book and show more images of the book – cover art. It is magazines sell the back cover for advertising. 🙂

  70. Charlene Oconnell says:

    Spring for sure!!

  71. Nancy says:

    Well, obviously I’m in the minority, but I like Autumn because IT pops more. Spring is so neutral and like so many books & magazines. I go for the ones with the dark covers that hit my eye first because there are so few of them.

  72. Leslee Price says:

    Why not put spring on the front and autumn on the back?

    • Linda H says:

      Great idea but that’s valuable advertising space and they would lose revenue on it.

    • Carrie says:

      Hi Leslee – Book publishers – especially Martingale – never sell or use the back cover for advertising. It is used to describe the book and show more images of the book – cover art. It is magazines sell the back cover for advertising.

  73. Pat Spurgeon says:

    Spring brights!

  74. GloryB says:

    Depends when it will hit the shops.
    Within weeks – brights (Spring)
    In a couple of months – brights (Spring)
    August onwards – autumnal colours (Autumn)

  75. Sonya M says:

    Spring Brights!

  76. Kim says:

    Definitely Spring Brights!

  77. Ellen Simmons says:

    Spring! Must have brights!!

  78. Julie Saemisch says:

    The autumn cover. The spring one looks too similar to the other book.

  79. Keli Q. says:

    Spring Brights! When I think of camping, I think of summer.

  80. Carolyn Marinovich says:

    Spring brights gets my vote.

  81. Tracey says:

    Although I’m usually a dark girl, I’m voting with the Spring cover.

  82. Donna Lee says:

    I’m usually a “dark side” quilter, but the spring brights is very pretty. Voting for bright! (Maybe it’s this terrible winter we’re having at the Jersey shore…lol)

  83. janequiltsslowly says:

    Spring Brights!

  84. Robin Mike says:


  85. Jackie Roisler says:

    Spring is my preference, but the Fall is very different from most I see.

  86. Myra says:

    Fall is my favorite time of the year here in northeast Texas. There’s nothing prettier than an October blue sky! However, the Spring Brights cover gets my vote easily.

  87. nanreflections says:

    Autumn Harvest

  88. Judy Sigsworth says:

    My California roots say “Spring”. But as a transplant to New England, I’m all in for Autumn. And I think the autumn colors will make it stand out from the brights of other covers.

  89. christy says:

    Spring Brights! Makes me want to run barefoot through the meadow! 🙂

  90. Spring…brights are great!!

  91. Sharon B. says:

    Usually, I am drawn to Autumn colors… but, I feel the Spring colors works best for this cover! 🙂

  92. sandy L says:

    Spring Brights appeals to me,

  93. Betsy S says:

    Spring brights

  94. JoAnn says:


  95. EllenB says:

    Autumn Harvest makes this book distinguishable from the first one.

  96. Flicsha Allen says:

    I like the Spring Brights best. Though I am a very seasonal sewer . It’s been a long winter and I am ready for Spring.

  97. Sandy M says:

    Reading the comments it seems that many want the Spring but i feel that since the first was bright and Spring like, this one should be the more rich harvest Autumn tones. So my vote is for the Autumn!

  98. Sandy Evenson-Hagen says:

    Autumn definitely!

  99. BJ says:

    Autumn! After living for 30 years in a 3-season state, I moved to one that has all 4, so now I celebrate Fall year round trying to make up for lost time :-).

  100. Debra Newhall says:

    Spring brights!

  101. Kim B says:

    Love the Spring Brights!!

  102. Katrina says:

    Spring Brights!

  103. Kristi says:

    I love both covers but I vote for Autumn cover. In my humble opinion, the rows in the Spring cover seem to “mush” together, while the rows in the Autumn cover stand out better individually.

  104. Nita says:

    Spring Brights

  105. Theresa says:

    Spring Brights

  106. Linda Hulen says:

    I vote for Autumn Harvest. I love the sights and scents of Autumn!

  107. Maggiie White says:


  108. Patti McGarry says:

    Spring Brights

  109. Jennifer Palma says:

    I love the Autumn Harvest

  110. Oh, hard decision but we like the Autumn cover best. Looking forward to stocking this new release in the fall!

  111. Robin says:

    Spring brights looks HAPPY!

  112. Jodene says:

    Definitely Autumn! It would catch the eye better on the shelf

  113. Pat says:

    Not just because we are approaching a much-needed spring, but because I like it best! Definitely the spring-like cover.

  114. dee says:

    well seeing as I am sitting in the middle of a major blizzard I vote for the spring cover…..come on spring…

  115. slmrn1 says:

    Spring Brights has my vote

  116. Marlene says:

    Spring Brights! love the happy colors

  117. Pat Shirani says:

    Booth are good, but Autumn stands out to me.

  118. Sally says:

    Spring. Love the brights.

  119. dshelton997 says:

    Spring for me!

  120. Angela says:

    As much as I like fall colors, the Spring brights really shows up the prettiest.

  121. debby says:

    Fall would usually be my pick but the Spring cover gets my vote.

  122. Carole Otto says:

    Autumn Harvest….looks so rich.

  123. Judy says:

    Both are good. Spring on front cover, Autumn on back cover. Everyone’s happy.

  124. J Miranda says:

    Autumn Harvest really reaches out and grabs you

  125. Mary R says:

    I’m ready for SPRING BRIGHTS!

  126. Skeeter says:

    Spring!! Judy’s idea of using both covers front and back is outstanding

  127. Leslie S. in MN says:

    The Spring Brights puts me in a happy mood.

  128. susanmp14 says:

    My vote if for Spring on the cover and Autumn on the back. Why not do different color ways for all of the quilts in the book. It’s so helpful to people who don’t have a knack for picking out fabrics and choosing a color way.

  129. Katie D says:

    Spring Brights! I also like the idea of using Spring on the front and Autumn on the back.

  130. Laure Trimmer says:

    Autumn Harvest – my kind of colors!

  131. Mom C says:

    If I were browsing for a quilt book I would pick the Spring Bright. Probably because I prefer the cheery colors over the more somber colors of Autumn. My first reaction when I saw the book was, “oh no, my row quilt is still sitting next to my long arm waiting to be quilted.” I just loved the rows from the last book and made the quilt king sized. Figuring out how to quilt it calls for some in depth thinking and I just haven’t wanted to think that hard. So fun. Thanks.

  133. Jo West says:

    Spring Brights

  135. Karen Keeler says:

    Definitely Autumn….like the darker pallette

  136. Barbara G. says:

    The Brights really do it for me!

  137. blaquilts says:

    I seems like more people like the spring but I think the Autumn cover is much more stunning.

  138. I love the spring cover!

  139. Gina M says:

    I love the Spring colors on the cover…even though my favorite season is Fall 😉

  140. JoAnn W says:

    Love both covers, really–but for my taste I’d go with Autumn. Looks like the bright Spring will be the winner, that’s OK, too.

  141. Sharon G. says:

    I gotta go with Spring Brights!

  142. Barbara says:

    The Spring cover makes me happy!

  143. Robin says:


  144. Hildy says:

  146. Judy says:

    Spring Brights!

  147. Sandra B says:

    Autumn Harvest….for my favorite season of the year!!

  148. Anne says:

    Autumn, but only because it better differentiates the first from the second book. I love them both!

  149. nancyangerer says:

    They both are nice, but I was drawn to Autumn Harvest.

  150. Carol C says:

    Spring Brights is my favourite. Maybe if I was voting in the fall I would choose the other one, but I don’t think so.

  151. Gilda says:

    I like the Spring Brights!

  152. Dorie Esquivel says:

    Spring reflects the other books, but the fall isn’t as eye catching.

  153. Cindy Dahlgren says:

    I prefer the spring brights. Jadahlgr at Yahoo dot Com

    I choose Autumn Harvest. Gorgeous!

  171. Barbara says:

    Spring is sprung the grass is Riz I wonder where the birdies is? My heart belongs to autumn, the crisp air, the New England colors, but fot this beautiful book cover, Spring gets my vote!

  172. Margaret says:

    Autumn Harvest – it has more depth

  173. Judyk says:

    The book is coming out in October so Autumn Harvest is my choice. After the gray dreary winter we have had the springy cover catches my eye now, but by October I’ll be ready for some pretty fall publications!

  174. Carol W. says:

    Spring Brights!!

    Spring is nice

  188. Silvia says:

    Spring hat sprung

  189. Wendy says:

    Maybe it’s because we are in the midst of ANOTHER winter storm and I am looking at a minimum of 4 (yes 4) feet of snow in my yard, but the Soring cover looks pretty appealing to me. Bring on Spring!

  190. Dana Davis says:

    Spring brights

  191. Gale says:

    Bring on spring, so bright and beautiful.
