100th Post Giveaway….(ok, 109th)

Dolce Giveaway

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had hit the 100 post mark on my blog. I really can’t believe I’ve had that much to say, but it’s been great creating, sharing and getting to know some really talented people. It’s time to celebrate!

You might remember the gorgeous selection of Dolce fabric I bought a couple months ago. It’s time to share the love. The winner of this giveaway will receive a sampling of every fabric you see above. Most pieces are around 11″ x 26″. A couple are a little smaller…one is an entire yard. Plenty of fabric to create something amazing!

All you need to do is leave a comment – you can tell me something about yourself, let me know what you would like to do with the fabric, anything you’d like. Comments close Wednesday evening, May 5th at 6:00pm. I’ll randomly select a winner on Thursday, May 6th. Good luck!

Comments are closed – good luck everyone!

    I am 50 yrs old with a huge fabric addiction. I have always loved going into the fabric store since I was little and just walk around touching the fabric. I would make a pin wheel quilt out of this fabric.

    Happy 100th! Great blog, really super accomplishment.

    I’m donna, friend of your friend vicky . . we corresponded on facebook ages ago . .

    something about me . . I just finished my string quilt top that i abandoned way back in October . . woohooo! can’t wait to get it basted and quilted!!!

    I just started quilting in the last year but have been collecting fabric/wanting to start for almost 7 years since my mom made my oldest a baby quilt… I guess finally finishing our basement made the space to sew and a bit more comfort! (unheated basement in MN is sooo cold!)

    I would use the fabric for several bags OR a baby quilt.

    Thanks & congratulations!

    I have had my eye on this fabric for some time now and it would make a fabulous little quilt for my ‘big’ 2 year old who is growing out of her baby quilts. Lovely blog!

  12. 15


    Gorgeous!! I’d love to make a ticker tape quilt outta that! I’ve wanted to make one of those for a while, this fabric is perfect!!

  13. 16


    Wow, these would be crying out to go in a quilt.

    I would probably end up using bits on apron pockets and cushions – appliques for my girls. Because I like to applique, I can make use of the tiniest scraps.

    Stephanie says

    Congratulations! I LOVE this fabric. I would make a quilt for my daughter (or myself – heehee) with it!

    Congrats on your 100+ post! I love following your blog and the fact that you are in Illinois… most of the blogs that a follow are out of state.
    Great giveaway too!

    marg says

    I have only just started quilting so would make a quilt.
    I started sewing as we moved states with my husband’s work and I needed a hobby. I think I have picked the best. Lovely people and I have also found blogs which have taught me so much.Although I have caught the fabric addiction bug!

  17. 20


    I bought a new machine today. Oh, it was an electrifying and horrifying experience. It’s a Husqvarna Viking and I still haven’t taken it out of the box because the price tag hasn’t quite hit me yet.
    I bought it to make myself a quilt (hmm, that hasn’t happened yet). So, if I win the fabric, it will be part of my first quilt for me.
    So bring it on Mr. random number picker! PIck me! Pick me!
    I suppose that would mean I have to open the box. yikes!

  18. 22

    Thank you for letting me enter.


  23. 32


    Woah! These are seriously beautiful. The colors are gorgeous, and I love the strength of the graphic, too. I’d start by using these on wallets and bags. Probably I’d make a little baby quilt, too. Scraps would be made into toys for the little ones in my life. Good luck everyone!

  49. 64

    Jen says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love your blog. I think that I would use these fabrics in a quilt made from a pattern in the first issue of Fat Quarterly…the Bedtime Story quilt but made with more than one block so that it is throw-sized.

  50. 65


    I love the color combinations and pattern. So much fun! Happy #100!!!!! My sister got a new laptop and needs a sleeve, I think some of the fabrics would look great 🙂

  55. 71


    Congrats on your 100th post! I enjoy your blog very much.

    I’m making a hexagon charm quilt (no fabric repeats) and the first thing I would do with this awesome selection of fabrics is to make hexagons for my quilt!

    Erin M. says

    Beautiful fabric. I’ve been making wall hangings lately. I’d love to have new fabrics to chose from.

    I’m thinkin’ I like those fabrics. I’ve never used modern fabrics in a quilt and I’m thinking it’s about time. Thanks for the inspiration

  60. 78


    Something about me: I’m learning that there is a HUGE difference in quality between fabric bought at a discount/big box/chain store and designer fabric bought at a quilt shop or online. I much prefer the good stuff and hate that I wasted so much money building up a stash of the mediocre stuff!
    Happy 109th blog post!! 🙂

    Michelle Staff says

    Congrats on your 100th post !…I’m a fabric addict and love any thing pretty…sorry no prim for me..I’m a mum of 3 grown boys who have given me 3 beautiful grand daughters the latest just a week old and I would love to make something for them to love and hold especially in those lovely Dolce fabrics.

    Brynn says

    Congrats! I love your quilts and sewing. My husband has put me on a fabric diet, so I’d love a way to sneak something new in 🙂

  65. 84


    The Dolce fabrics are lovely! I actually have a summer handbag planned in a piece of fabric from this line at the moment – I’d combine a few of them and make it a patchwork bag in some way. For the rest, they’d go great in various quilts I have in the works already!

  66. 85


    Hi Faith!

    I’m Alisa, a Christian wife and mom to 5 children. I love to sew and quilt (obviously or I wouldn’t have your blog in my feeds!) I live in British Columbia, Canada which is a beautiful place to live. We live in the Fraser Valley which is a very lush, but at times wet, place to live. I have been to Chicago before but all I remember is that it is a huge, busy city. Do you live in the city or in a suburb?

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Amy says

    Hi, my name is Amy & I follow you on flickr (Or is that only a facebook concept? I don’t facebook – if that is a verb…) Anywho, I would use some of this to make a postage stamp quilt. I have started one of those a couple of times now, but I m now ready & I want it to be full of “designer” goodness. These would be mixed with Heather Ross, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Heather Bailey & others so you know that they will be in good company.

    Happy milestone.

  68. 87


    Oh, la la! Congrats on your 100th post! What a lovely giveaway! I would love some fresh new spring fabrics to start some Denyse Schmidt-style Drunk love blocks! crossing my fingers! xo

  73. 92


    Wow! What a giveaway! I’ve been eyeballing that line for a while now and would love to win this! I’m starting my ’10 Christmas gift quilts and I have a cousin in college who would love a quilt with these colors. Thank you, and happy 109th!

    Samantha says

    Happy 109 post day! I’m 5 days away from being done with exams and being able to pull out my sewing machine again, can’t wait! I’m so glad that you’re blogging all of your work. I love peeking in on what you’re up to, especially since I know you’re doing it with two kids!:)

  75. 94

    L.H. says

    Congrats on 109 posts! You are so generous to do such a gorgeous giveaway. If I won I would use those beautiful fabrics to make more hexagons for my first quilt. I just started making hexagons and I think I have about 75 right now so thousands more to go! If I had any leftovers I would use them in a scrappy quilt (which would be my second).


  76. 95


    The fabric is beautiful! I’m not sure what I would make with it…maybe a patchwork pillow or something of that sort…well, maybe more than one pillow. I just purchased a new sewing machine last month, so I have been sewing away nearly every chance I get.

  77. 96


    What lovely stacks of fabric! I would definitely make a quilt. something about myself…I just got my garden (the early stuff) planted, and I am so excited…I love to garden.
    thanks for the giveaway.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such beautiful fabrics. I have so many quilts I want to make! I love your rainbow block quilt and hope to make one soon. I am a grandma who loves quilting, gardening and playing with my grandkids.

  79. 98


    What a great giveaway! So many quilts to make, clothes for little girls and for a girl can never have enough bags, right? For some reason I just love Dolce for bags. Have made a few and have been wanting to make a few more! Congrats on the 109th post!

    Laura says

    I also would make a quilt using these fabrics. I probably should start with a small lap quilt since it will be my first!

  82. 102


    Congratulations on 100!!! I enjoy your blog and your quilts are lovely! What a fantastic giveaway-very generous! I would love to make a quilt with these lovely prints.

    amy says

    Love this fabric! Gorgeous. I live in Australia and have a little boy so very rarely get to sew any pink girly things. I just love pink and aqua together… beautiful! This would make a gorgeous quilt!

  84. 104


    Recently I’ve become really interested in using up my scraps on small projects that can add color around the house. I have a two year old and am expecting another little one any day now, so any project that is small, completed relatively quickly, and doesn’t require a trip out to the fabric store is perfect for me and the family right now!

  85. 105


    Hi Faith, I’m Theresa and from Adelaide in South Australia. Those fabrics are gorgeous and seeing as I’m on a bit of a half square triangle path at the moment I’d probably use them in for that…..then again, I just purchased a kaleidescope ruler ad could have a bit of fun with a whole bunch of different degrees to 45….or a 45 but different to 1/2 square!!!! Great job on your ‘100th’! Love your work.

  86. 107

    Liz B says

    Those fabrics are just gorgeous, thanks for the chance at your giveaway! My random comment: Once I had a dream that I was possessed by an evil quilt! I had a cut on my arm and a thread from the quilt got into the cut and possessed me. Then the two handsome young men from that show Supernatural came and were able to save me. Gosh that was a weird dream.

    Kyra T-M says

    Just found you and will be adding you to my fav list for sure. Am getting more and more drawn to this modern quilt movement. Keep making those wonderful quilts! Congrats on the 109th post and please pick me, those are mighty tempting fabrics. Be well! KT-M

    Herta says

    Congratulations on the milestone! The fabrics would make a lovely lap quilt for my mum (mom)…thanks for the chance.

  92. 115


    I love all these bold and geometric patterns, but when I go to the store, I fall into the old traditional stuff. I need to be PUSHED out of my box.
    Thanks for the fun!

  93. 116

    Sandi says

    Beautiful fabric! I’m currently working on a modern baby quilt, and this appeals to my orange and aqua fetish.

  94. 117


    I have been a machine quilter for over 10 years. I also have added an Intelliquilter (computerized) to my Gammill. The fabrics look scrumptious and my first thought was to make little Sunday aprons for all my little Granddaughters, to keep their nice Sunday dresses clean at Sunday dinner at Grandma and Grandpa’s!!!
    Thanks for the chance!!!!

  95. 118

    Anne says

    Wow congratulations and thank you for sharing your quilting passion with us all in blog land. Love your blog, so inspirational. Happy Stitching

  96. 119


    That really is a gorgeous collection…I would make another quilt for my daughter’s bed – we’re definitely going to be needing 2 quilts this winter, and that colour scheme would be absolutely perfect for her room.

    Thanks for such a fab giveaway!

  97. 120


    Happy 100th Post!! I hope to have as many visitors by my 100th post as you – but probably not since its only about 14 posts away! You make gorgeous quilts (and clothes!) and I love coming to see the inspiration. Thanks for the giveaway!

  98. 121


    What a generous giveaway! If I win these fabrics, I’ll make a summer quilt to use outside on the patio. I’m planning to spend lots of time outside reading and I’m going to need a light, sunny quilt, naturally. 🙂

  99. 123

    Laura.** says

    Hi Faith!

    I’m a student here in Chicago and I’m just finishing up my last week of classes. I’ve been dreaming of making my first quilt for over a year and this summer I think I’ll get a chance! I’m very new to it all and just learning. Your blog has been my favourite that I have seen and you always inspire me to keep going with my studies so I can get to the sewing machine! I received my very first jellyroll in the mail last week but tucked it away so I could concentrate on studying for exams! Can’t wait to pull it out and get started! I am so excited to start my own collection of beautiful fabric…and yours would be a lovely start! 😉 Blessings on you!

    H30mel says

    I sooo love this fabric. I don’t know what I would do with it just yet. Probably just admire it for a little while. Happy Anniversary!

  103. 127


    I had the pleasure of making a quilt from this line for a commissioned piece. It is beautiful – but it left me wanting MORE. I love that you have all the colorways here – that could make a fantastic quilt all together!!

    Something about me:

    I detest avocados. Yechhh.

  104. 129


    holy moly! what a generous giveaway! since i almost exclusively quilt, i am sure i would make a quilt with this beautiful fabric!

    I would love to win this giveaway. I would use the fabric to make a table runner for my dining table as I need to cheer myself up. Great blog.

  107. 132


    That is very kind of you. The colors of the fabric is yummy – that is why I usually get hungry when doing my crafts.

  108. 133

    karie says

    May 5th is my birthday, maybe it will bring me some luck!
    If I won I would make a pillow (or two) and bed runner for my bed.

  109. 134

    Nichole says

    Lovely! I’d use them in a quilt – I have a pile of soft, feminine fabric scraps that these would blend perfectly with for a quilt.

  110. 135

    I would love those fabrics and would make a quilt with them, especially now that the semester is over and I have the ENTIRE summer free from study and much more time for sewing. Yay!!
