    with the black and white pieces, most likely some window coverings for the dining room. other pieces look like skirts and for quilts.

    Night & Day and New Traditions would go in my design space, perhaps to recover my office chair (a drab white thing that’s showing its age) and to use as curtains, while the Organic Voile and Metro Living would make a great outfit combination…pick me, pick me!

    So, I would make cool jumper/dresses for both my girls from the Night/Day fabric, I would make myself a breezy dress or tunic from the organic voile, would use the Metro to make a jacket for my baby boy….the New Traditions is throwing me for a loop…I might use it for the Oliver + S School Photo dress…would have to see

    I would love to give my bathroom a more sophisticated look. This fabric would allow me to make lovely shower curtain and maybe some window treatments. If there was some fabric left over, I could use it as accents around the house to tie it all together.

    I think the fabric would make greate new cushions for my sofa and as a new weekender bag. Finally I need some new curtains for my bedroom!

    I would sew curtains! I’d definitely use the grey fabric for a new shower curtain, then the white and black fabric for little curtains in the kitchen.

    Definitely dresses!!!! The patterned fabrics just scream for simple dresses that accent the beauty of the print itself. I’m a dress-addict, so I’d love to try them out!!

    Mmm, I’d love to make aprons from New Traditions for my friend and her sister who opened a bakery. And with the Night and Day, the possibilities are tantalizing. Skirt or dress, I think the fabric is so beautiful, clothes seem like the best option to be seen, although totes and jackets or a light spring coat also would be great.

    It just took me a month to alter a suit coat pattern to fit me. I would make a suit using this altered pattern and this lovely fabric. Since the suit fits me well, I think that I could experiment with some more vibrant fabrics.

    AWESOME. I love this fabric and actually have vague notions for a quilt based on Amelie rattling around my brain. Fingers, toes, etc.. crossed

    They are beautiful. I’d probably make a quilt with Night and Day 3 and New Traditions… probably make a skirt from Organic Voile and an apron or bag with Metro Living

    First and foremost, I would make my sister a dress as she has been begging me to make her one since I first started learning. Then, I would make one for my mom. And one for my aunt too, as a wedding present! I’d probably make a dress or two for myself as well!

    Wow, those are lovely! I love the patterns. The New Traditions and Metro Living I could not resist making some dresses out of. I would want to wear as much of those pattern on my body that I could! The Organic Voile I think I would make the Emily Variation with, adding in some of my own variations on it along the way, and the might turn into some clutch purses and other lovely accessories.

    Oh my gooness! I love those fabrics! So beautiful! Well, I have so many ideas in my head right now! And there’s so much fabric! (swoon!) My first thought is matching dresses for me and my 2 year old niece and new niece on the way. Those fabrics just shout beautiful dresses to me. But, fabrics always are meant for something, and sometimes they’re set aside for a bit until the perfect project for them comes along.

    I would love to make a dress out of that fabric, but I’ll probably use the majority in a quilt or for focus pieces on bags!

    I would sew some new cushions for our kitchen chairs as well as new curtains for such said kitchen. And I’m sure I could squeeze some cute bags out of the remnants.

    Metro living: one of my patterns from the 40’s Organic Voile: A blouse NIght/Day: A skirt New Traditions: A skirt.

    Any left over fabric would be used for smaller crafts like small coin purses or piecework on a quilt.
