    What to do with these fun fabrics? Maybe a quilt. Maybe a spring outfit for my 7 year old. So many possibilities! I’d love to win!

    Well it would make me busy for at least a half of year or more. I would make something for everyone (my family, friends……) according to their wishes. Can’t wait.

    So many possibilities! I think I would make patchwork skirts for my three little nieces. They are very small fashionistas. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Hmmm…I could be funny, and be truthful, use up more of my stash space! But, actually, I have the perfect vest pattern for my twin grand daughters which is quilted with or without sleeves. The body of the vest has 5/8" quilting in it, and is perfectly darling…I think I would see some of the remaining as ruffles on a skirt to match—then hunt up the knit and make a t-shirt to wear with it, making it a complete ensemble….Thank you for the opportunity to dream about this beautiful selection!

    I would make a cheerful, colorful quilt top! Although one of the ideas above to make patchwork scarves was a good one. I’m going to look for patterns for those..

    With all that fabric I would make two wonderful quilts for my children! One for my new baby daughter and one for my son. Quilts are just such a great way to keep fabric like this in rotation, it never gets old, and you can hand it down from generation to generation!

    What would I make? Goodness!!! Where should I start? I would make a quilt for my niece or my daughter, I’d make a bag, or I’d make a skirt. Maybe some plush dolls or animals. There are so many possibilities! I LOVE fabric, so just having it would be awesome!

    What great fabric! I’d use the wovens for the blanket I’m working on for my daughter and the knits as some fun accents for a new dress for her.

    Those colours are so cheerful!!! I can never have enough of gorgeous fabric! If I win it, my imagination would run wild: would make accessories and embellishments, accents to my jewelry just to name a few! Also include them at the upcoming fundraising at my church. Blog and twitt about it. Recently I had several friends have baby girls, also I became an aunt to a lovely niece, so they will for sure have special accessories made for them.

    I love that fabric! I just made my first patchwork quilt, and another twin sized comforter for my daughter. If I won that jelly roll, I’d make another lap blanket to hang on my couch and brighten up the living room a little. Another thing I’ve wanted to try? Patchwork curtains for the kid’s room. I think it would be kind of cute.
