What fabulous fabric!!! Probably would use it in a wall quilt.

Em said...

I probably would use it to make a tiered skirt.

RebeccaMom said...

great fabric, I would probably use it to make a bag and then the rest for part of a quilt (add some more fabric).

Jerri said...

Neat contrast in the prints. I might use them for an outfit for a little boy- the blues.

JD said...

There might be a skirt, bag, and lunch box for my fiance involved with those fabrics, should I win!

leah said...

Hi! wow, what a generous give away! So many things you could do-- I tend to think about a bag, or possibly some clothes for my little girl. thanks!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Bags or quilts...bags or quilts...most likely quilts :) My latest obsession.

katrina said...

Wow. That is a LOT of fabric, so generous! It would definitely make its way into a quilt, although nothing I've got going so far, which means that I would have to start something new...good grief @ my projects!

Kara said...

It looks like cute fabric for a bag or purse! I love it!

christmas presents, reversible bags, wristlets, burb rag covers, wallets, baby bootees, etc.

LFinn said...

Oh, it is hard to decide what I would make...maybe matching skirts for me and my 2 year old daughter? Or I could use the fabrics as a starting point for a quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

Sara said...

I think I would start out making a bag - and then with the left overs I would make add them to a quilt. I make a lot of scrap quilts -

Jenna Z said...

Oooh, that looks like new pillow slips to me! I love making pillow slips for our bed, they don't even have to match, I just like variety! They're covered up by the blankets and our heads anyway!

Kyra said...

I would probably break the fabric up into two different projects, like the two blue fabrics in one quilt, the other in another. I have so many patterns that I want to try I'd pair each two fabrics with a new pattern of mine and buy extra fabric to go with it, so I'd get two beautiful quilts! Thanks for the chance to win!

Dolores said...

I would use it to make a lap-sized quilt for my mom who is in a nursing home.

Jennadesigns said...

Wonderful fabric line! I would use it as accents on clothing for my 6-year-old son and turn the rest of it into some beautiful bags and pouches!

A bag, a skirt, maybe a pillowcase for my kids' beds?

athereal said...

I'd love to try my hand at some log-cabin style blocks with the blues and pinks opposing each other. Kinda makes me think of sunrise competing against the night sky.

bashtree said...

I am new to sewing, but I *think* there would be enough yardage to make a really cool paneled skirt. and/or a patchwork-ish beach or market tote. I LOVE those colors!

And if my yardage gauge is totally off, I think it would make a wonderful quilt top for something special in my den.

Sue Cahill said...

Looks like the basis of a very nice quilt, Christmas will be here before we know it and I'd like to make a lap quilt for my sister. The colors are perfect for her.

Jerilyn said...

in my eyes, this is a quilt waiting to happen! i make quilts as gifts whenever my friends have babies or turn 30. one friend who is 28 has been complaining that she can't wait that long, so I'd use this fabric to get a head-start on hers.

That is a whole lot of fabric. I usually have to lay out the fabric to see the arrangement to decide what pattern to use. And my favourite is to use sashing or alternate with solid linen (now can do any color with my successful hand dyeing experiment.
