    I’m thinking mug rugs, coasters and placemats to brighten up my dining room and kitchen. This winter has been so bleak here in New England, and these colors are so bright and happy!

    Mel says

    They are so cheery, I’d want to see them all the time so I think I would make a new spring handbag. Thanks for the chance!

  3. 18


    I’m not sure what I would do with them after I finished drooling all over them, but I’m sure I could come up with something!

  4. 20


    I Love the fabrics and would possibly use them in a new mad mosaic swap I joined, but then i’d be sharing them with others…so I’d have to use some of them for my blocks too!

  5. 22


    Love! I’ve been meaning to make a little “essentials” pouch to carry in my purse, so I’d definitely use a couple of the prints for that. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. 25

    Stephanie says

    I would probably sew some zippered bags for make up and little things… or turn them into quilt squares. 🙂

  7. 26


    I love these Echino fabrics. The colours are so great! I would probably make a baby quilt with these fabrics. All my friends and family are having babies right now, it seems. I already made 2.5 baby quilts in the past month. Thanks for the giveaway!

    jessica says

    these are so lovely – if i win i will gaze at them adoringly – then maybe a little wall quilt for my sewing room so i can gaze at them some more. thanks for the chance to win!

  9. 37


    I think the Eschino fabrics would be perfect for all of the cool tote and carryall patterns/tutorials that have been published int he last couple of years.

  10. 45


    Now that you have shown us what’s possible with your very inspired quilt, I’m eager to try these fabrics in something … maybe a table runner … or a smaller quilt. LOVE Echino now more than ever.

  11. 47


    What a great giveaway! It’s very nice of you to share. I think I’d make a mini-quilt from the fabrics for my friend who LOVES these patterns, were I to win the giveaway.

  12. 50

    Sara says

    I love your finished quilt-perfection and I would probably make a lap quilt with these fabrics–crossing my fingers:)

  13. 51

    Carmen says

    Wow Faith, this is awesome! Thanks so much for your generosity:)

    I’m in the midst of starting up a blog, so maybe I should get it done in time to add your link to my sidebar, LOL. But for now, I guess I’ll leave this first comment; with those lovely scraps, I think I’d be inclined to start my own Echino quilt. Otherwise, I think they’d make awesome accents to handbags and other projects I might make. Thanks so much again!

  14. 58

    Nicole says

    I would love to use these to make a little bag for each of my kids for their Tag Junior and books, and I would make a tote for me with the others! I LOVE Echino but haven’t used it to make anything yet. What a great giveaway! Thanks!

  15. 59

    Nicole says

    I also added you to my google reader. I was going to do it today anyway! I really enjoy your blog.

  16. 60


    YUM! Such lovelies fabrics! I’ve been wanting to make a new patchwork tote bag, and I think that these fabrics would be PERFECT in that role. 🙂

  17. 61

    Jennifer says

    I’ve never worked with Echino but love the colors. I would make a pretty toddler quilt for my daughter. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. 69


    Being a quilter, I would put these in a fabulous scrappy quilt. But I could see making little bags with them as well. So many options!

  19. 70


    Annnnd lastly you are also already “liked” on FB (That’s how I knew you had a new post, hehe)

    Fingers crossed! Thanks for the giveaway, Faith!

  20. 74


    The only thing I understand is how to leave a comment. Here it is! Thanks for the giveaway. Echino fabrics are entirely different than any fabric I already have!

  21. 83


    OK, I added your feed–but don’t know what the difference is between a feed and a blog …I forgot to say that I would make a quilt for my very colorful 8 year old niece! Thanks again!

  22. 87


    These fabrics would be so perfect for a spring project! I have a stack of new quilt designs that I am just waiting for a set of fabrics like this to try! Thanks for the giveaway! This is one of my most favorite lines!

  23. 98


    I know exactly what I’d do with these. I’d definitely do some improv piecing. I went to a Denyse Schmidt workshop in November, and now I seem to improv piece everything!! The enchino fabrics are beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win.

  24. 100


    There’s something about Echino! Lovely, lovely. What a great giveaway.

    I’m an RSS subscriber, and I liked your facebook page.

  25. 106


    well, this is easy because I already do all 4.

    I would probably try to do some sort of wall hanging. I have a room painted a cool grey color that needs a BIG color pop above the sofa. something made from these fabrics would be _perfect_!

  26. 110


    Oh, I want to win, please! I used to not like echino fabrics (I don’t know why) and then a client absolutely wanted something from that green fabric with the birds and from that moment on I became a bit obsessed with echino 🙂
    I haven’t gotten around to making something for me though because apparentely my friends like them, too :))
    I would love to make some new bag for me, I think they look lovely displayed on a simple big tote.
    Thank you for the chance!

  27. 112

    Julie says

    I don’t know yet what I would do with this yummy stack but I adore them and would definitely find something pretty to make. Maybe a wall hanging to brighten up my sewing space.

  28. 115

    Angelina says

    I’m pretty sure I’d have to make something for ME with these fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win! BTW Feb 14th is my birthday – this would make a great present! Just sayin’… haha



  29. 120

    Marsy says

    I’m gathering bright colored fabrics for a new york beauty quilt. My first, and I want it to be spectacular – I’m sure these would help. Crossing my fingers…

  30. 129

    Shelley says

    I would probably hold onto those fabrics for the perfect project. Maybe a quilt? Clutches? Half the fun would be looking at them and planning. They are beautiful!!!

  31. 131


    What would I do with these fabrics? Hmmmm…. I would covet them, and stare at them all day, and never want to use them because they are so pretty.

  32. 132

    robin says

    With such bright fun fabrics, I’m thinking I might make a cover for my sewing machine and a pincushion, threadkeeper thingie.

  33. 144


    i would love to add some new echino! i have some older prints but have not had the opportunity to add any of the new prints. how exciting! a little boy quilt of course!

  34. 149


    Nice giveaway — thanks for the chance! I’ve been wanting to make some of those linen & patchwork storage baskets for my sewing supplies — I think these would look great!

  35. 152

    Molly says

    Those fabrics are super! The peacock is fabulous. I’m thinking pillow shams or mug rugs. The helicopter or bike print would make a neat focal point for a young boy’s backpack or pillowcase. Great giveaway! Thanks!

  36. 156


    Love these! I’d definitely start another quilt….we need a spring/summer one on our master bed….and these are perfect. I would just get some other prints in matching colors to add to them so there would be enough for a queen size 🙂

  37. 158


    you are in my sidebar! i remember you from the mini munki quilts. i loved those little quilts. it sent me on an Amy Butler Coriander hunt to beat the band and i am still looking. anybody?

  38. 159


    i think i would use them to make a couple of pillows. the kids need some for a new rumpus being constructed. Gorgeous bright happy prints…:)

  39. 165

    Laura says

    I love these. They are so bright and cheery. I would make patchwork pillows for my soon to be new living room.

  40. 167


    Wow! It’s so cool finding someone else from Chicago in the blog-o-sphere. 🙂 I would definitely make a quilt with these fabrics. I really can’t afford them, but one of my friends and I split 1/2 yard bundles sometimes, just so we can each have a little bit for quilting, and I got some Echinos for us yesterday. So I only have a few prints, and none of the ones you are giving away, lol!

    It was fun looking at all the projects on your blog!

  41. 168

    Katherine says

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I am envisioning a great quilt with these awesome fabrics.

  42. 169

    Katherine says

    I am a follower, and love seeing what you’re working on. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  43. 176


    Oh, I hope I win! I’ve been saving a few Echino prints in hopes that I can get some more and make a quilt. I don’t have any of the ones you’re sharing, so they would be a great addition. Thanks for the chance.

  44. 177

    Sarah O says

    I would love to make a colorful table runner for my dining room. So pretty!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  45. 184

    Jen says

    What a fun giveaway! I have no idea what I’d do with them…maybe some fun things for my kitchen or save my pennies to add more Echino to the stack. I’d love to win!!

  46. 190

    Paula says

    I would make some zippered pouches for me and to give to girl friends. Thanks for the chance!

    What would I do with these delicious fabrics? How about, what wouldn’t I do with them? I would love to make over my daughter’s room in this line 🙂

  48. 206

    Jess says

    I have been pining for Echino … unfortunately, my med-student budget doesn’t seem to care. This summer I’m taking time off and I’m finally going to start a new quilt for my bed! (I threw out my old comforter and had planned to make a new quilt this year, but it never happened. I live in upstate NY so eventually I had to just buy something from Target … lol.)

  49. 207

    SewLindaAnn says

    I’ve been really ready for Spring and flowers, so I’d make a tote bag for the pool with a vinyl lining on the side pocket for wet things.

  50. 215

    Sonia says

    Oh now what a great give away, not sure what I would make as I have never seen these in person, but I would probably make thenm the show piece, possible mini or cushion, not too sure.

  51. 221

    rebecca chambers says

    Fresh Lemons has been on my Google Reader as I scheme a quilt design for my daughter’s big-girl-bed. I think she’d sleep well under some Echino prints!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  52. 224

    Dianne Giles says

    Echino fabric + matching Kona solid = Heaven in a Quilt! Such delicious fabrics and great inspiration from you, how can I miss!! Cheers, Dianne

  53. 225

    Dianne Giles says

    And, I have “liked” Fresh Lemons on Facebook! Would be awesome to win these lovely Echino fabrics. Thank you for the opportunity. Cheers, Dianne

  54. 231


    My boys would LOVE that helicopter print! I’m still a little weirded out by Echino, but I think these could help me love it MUCH more! 🙂 Thanks for a sweet giveaway!

  55. 235

    Joy says

    I would love to use them as accent pieces on some Spring linen totes I’m planning. Thanks for the chance!

  56. 237

    Jeanne says

    I’d love to make a set of journal covers with those — they would look fabulous lined up in a row on my shelves!

  57. 243


    I’ve got a few tidbits of Echino, and would love to add those beauties. I don’t know that I’ll ever have enough for a whole quilt, but maybe a mini-quilt, or a bigger one with a whole lotta white. 🙂 Their fabrics are just so rich and yummy.

  58. 249

    MarciaW says

    I would make an Echino quilt with these fabrics. Your quilt and that of Oh! Fransson with Echino fabrics will be my inspiration. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  59. 255

    Sandy says

    The daughter and son-in-law of dear friends are having a baby. These would be a great base of colors to work with for their new baby. Thanks for the chance!!

  60. 256

    Sandy says

    I have now added your RSS feed to my list of feeds. I love all the colorful work that you do!!

  61. 264


    Who does not love Echino!?
    I would use some of it to make a patchwork journal cover for my mixed media art journal, a bit of it for some fabric applique work, and the rest in a scrappy fun scarf for spring!

  62. 272

    Liza says

    Those are so gorgeous! I love the peacock print! I would definitely use them for a quilt…maybe even one that I’d keep for myself!

  63. 280

    Linda E in AZ says

    Such pretty fabrics – they’d be great for one of my community quilts and would brighten up someone’s day.
    thanks for doing this!

  64. 301

    sam says

    I liked your facebook page! i am almost done with my GIRL quilt and I NEED the Echino for my BOY quilt…please? I love your ‘squared’ quilt by the way = )

  65. 308


    Ha, I will probably look at them for at least a month before cutting anything 😀 But don’t worry, I am sure I will make something gorgeous :))) Yeah, and I’m very modest :))

  66. 311


    ah, echino.. maybe i would make a posh bag. but then again, maybe i would use them in clothing – they would so easily transform something simple to something spectacular.

  67. 316


    I been dreaming up a traditional Irish Chain quilt made from Echino prints, I don’t have quite enough to make a decent sized quilt, so these would make a happy addition to the quilt (when I get time to make it!)

  68. 321

    Allison says

    These would be perfect for a white background with either square or circles of the echino set inside the background. Sort of a take on your stepping stones quilt. I would keep it all to myself…although I probably have to share with my dog who insists on cudlding under the blanket. I’m such a pushover, but he is so cute and I’m sure he would approve of this blanket idea!

  69. 327


    Love your echino quilt and also the strip scrap quilt from the anna marie horner range. What to make – well that is the question, it would have to be a gorgeous quilt for my new great nephew Ethan who has just entered the world he is very beautiful

    thanks for your lovely website and all the lovely things

    WandaFish says

    Your echino quilt is gorgeous! Thanks for this lovely giveaway. If I were lucky enough to win, I think I’d like to include the fabrics in a quilt 🙂

  71. 331


    oh what wouldn’t I do with these fabrics?! I am making an improv quilt right now and those blues and greens would fit in there ever so perfectly!Thank you for being so generous!

  72. 335

    Sofi says

    I’m making an echino quilt for my sister, and I’m a few squares short – I’d LOVE to add yours into the mix!

  73. 340

    Angie H says

    I have been holding onto the Chasing Cottons Diamond Bouquet Quilt Pattern. I would love to use these fabrics mixed with some of my own for this great looking quilt pattern.

  74. 345

    Sheetal says

    Echino is so yum, and with it being pricey I have only a bit that I pet regularly…My plan is to make a ‘man quilt’ for the Mr. with echino and your giveaway would be perfect for it! I think the feel and deep colors of echino as well as the some of the prints make it perfect to use for non girly quilts.

  75. 349

    Sandy N. says

    I love these fabrics! I would use them to make a beautiful pillow or quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win.=)

  76. 353


    I’ve liked you on facebook too….I almost felt like I should be singing when I typed that….kind of something sultry such as in the same genre as “The first time, ever I saw your face” lol I’ve only had about an hours’ sleep so forgive my extra weirdness. Hugs Naomi

  77. 354


    I think Echino makes amazing bags. I would love to use these pieces to make some clutches or makeup bags. Or I may be tempted to make a small quilt … 🙂

  78. 357


    Love the Echino Squared! Hmmmm…what would I do with the fabric? Make a quilt? Make a purse? Apron? So many choices! So much fun!

  79. 364

    Helle says

    I would make a colorful table runner to brighten up my table. Thanks for the chance! Greetings from Seoul.

  80. 372

    Kirsten N says

    I would love to make up a tote bag, or a cushion cover to show off these gorgeous fabrics.

  81. 373


    Wow! I’ve never even touched Echino fabrics before but I’ve coveted them forever. I’m not certain what I’d make, but I’d sure it’d involve fussy cutting some of those gorgeous prints!

  82. 374

    Carla says

    Very cute fabric – love it! I would probably make tote bags for my boys with the boy colors and pillows out of the rest. Thanks for a chance to win!

  83. 375

    roccagal says

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ECHINO!!!! I would definitely make a quilt inspired by Oh Fransson, if I won!! Thanks for the give away!!

  84. 376

    Nancy Sue says

    I love the helicopters. Great colors to play with during this bleak midwinter. I have a brain cramp thinking about what to make from them!

  85. 377

    Erin M. says

    Patchwork quilt with some solids- maybe grey, green or blue (who goes wrong with blue!). Thanks for the giveaway!

  86. 380


    Okay I managed it. Wow a first for me added you to my favorite blogs list. Maybe I will start getting the hang of this. Meanwhile need to get on with planning baby Ethans new quilt

    Thanks for all your info and ideas
