    These are such cheery colors! I have never made a modern quilt. I would use these fabrics to create a quilt, after attending your workshop here in Cincinnati. I look forward to learning from you, to free up my inner self!

    Krista E says

    oh my goodness! How YUMMY those fabrics are! Why do we say YUMMY when describing fabric anyway?? I don’t much care – it is yummy. πŸ™‚
    I would make a baby quilt for my 4 month old grandbaby. And maybe a table runner – or a wall art quilt for my cubicle? Lots of possibilities.

    Firstly I would just admire it for a while, then after I plucked up the courage I’d like to make Thimbleblossom’s ‘On a Whim’ pattern. I think it would look so very soft and pretty.
    Thank you for such a generous giveaway.

  6. 9

    Ann Kochman says

    I love making quilts for people who need them – unwell, down and out – whatever. I can see that a quilt from these fabrics would be a comfort to someone, and that is how I would use them.

  7. 10

    Betsy says

    I would make a quilt, but I’m not sure which pattern. I just joined a Modern Quilt Guild in Beaufort, SC, and my first meeting is tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll give me tons of inspiration!!

  8. 11

    Linda P says

    Lately I’ve been making fabric portfolios and luggage tags. With left overs, I make “coasters”. Love easy quick projects! Working up to placemats. These fabrics are already coordinated – makes life easier for all of us who take forever to make decisions!! Lovely set! Thanks for offering.

  9. 12

    Lynnette says

    Lately, I’m in love with triangles, so I would use this fabric to make a Cutting Edge quilt with a more monochromatic and soft palette. Beautiful fabric – thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  10. 14

    Kathy R says

    It would make a beautiful quilt, but I would probably just stare at it for a very long time before being able to cut into it! Why is that? It’s as if once it’s cut into, it’s gone! I think that’s called hoarding πŸ™‚

  11. 15

    Glynette says

    Wow, beautiful fabric!
    I would make some cute little sundresses for some lucky little girls!

  12. 16


    Sew Pretty! Were I lucky enough to win, I think I would add a lavender gray background and make a quilt for a young girl … maybe scrappy butterflies or kites … πŸ™‚ Pat

  35. 48

    Lisa Marie says

    These fabrics are lovely and the colors make me feel a little cooler in this extreme heat. I would love to sew them into a quilt — although I guess it would have to be mostly to look at right now, since it would be too hot to cover up with it!

  36. 49

    Pam roach says

  67. 99

  72. 108


    I would put a few of the pieces aside to go towards a project for my caught and the rest would go to my stash until I figure out what to do with them – I think the larger florals would look nice on some kitchen towels.

  88. 135

    Angie says

  98. 145

    Margot Molle says

    Just so pretty! I havn’t been into modern until just recently, but I can see a quilt with big squares , perhaps on point, to utilize the larger prints, maybe framed by the smaller prints. And I have a neice who would just love those colours, and she says you can never have to many quilts.

  99. 149

  112. 172

    Sue says

    I can see these made up into a quilt using a TAKE FIVE or SPLIT 9 PATCH. Very fun and pretty fabrics, would make up a wonderful summer quilt.

  113. 173

  125. 192

    Beth says

    It may be crazy but I’m dreaming of Christmas gifts already! Thanks for the chance.

  126. 193

  127. 194

    Julie says

  129. 199


    I would use it to make a bag that I can use to take home student papers to grade in a business file pattern I got last year and have been dying to use.

  130. 200


    Honestly, this would probably sit in a pile while I come up with a design to do them justice… That’s what usually happens with awesome fabric.

  131. 201

    Lindsey F says

    The soothing color palette makes me think I should make a quilt that I keep for myself.

  132. 205

    Sue Preece says

  134. 208

    Rina says

    Beautiful fabrics that remind me of the ocean. I would make a quilt that I could use as a chill chaser for the porch swing in the evening.

  135. 209


    The colors align perfectly with my guest bedroom. I see a sweet topper for the guest bed. On nights when sleep evades me I tip toe out of my bedroom and then curl up on the guest bed with my book. How nice this little coverlet would be. Pattern? Thick and thin strips. Simple. Sweet. Bound in solid pale turquoise.

  136. 210


    Oh how fresh and summery. I will make a lap quilt in the Lemon Squares pattern for mour grandaughter who is having a kidny transplant on July 13.

  137. 212

  138. 214

    Jackie B says

    What a great combo of colours. I am thinking a crazy eights lap quilt…I would like to think it would be for me but who am I kidding. If my mom or my daughter see it, I won’t have a chance of keeping it.

  139. 216


    I’d love to use this fabric to finally make a quilt for the bed in my guest room, which is getting ready for a pale yellow coat of paint.

  140. 217

    maria do carmo pezzuto says

    Estes tecidos cabem em qualquer padrΓ£o ou peΓ§a que se queira fazer,mas…faria uma colcha com o padrΓ£o CARRETΓ‰IS,para o meu novo quarto de costura que sΓ³ ficaria MAIS bonito.Obrigada.
