    I think I would make skirts, but the blue colors would work as pillows for my bedroom.

    i couldn’t really be sure without feeling the weight of the fabric, but i’d prob. make some skirts (i live in them, and nice ones that fit me well are really hard to find). i’ve been screen printing a bit lately, so i might fancy them up a bit with that _

    I would love to make an easy to wear dress that be dressed down for summer but able to be worn in winter (it is still rainy and cold in Seattle!) I’ve been planning on making a variation on my red roses dress, and these would look lovely – one main body color and accent roses!

    Now that the sun has come out in London, a couple of pretty sundresses would hopefully do the fabric justice.

    Colorblocked jacket and a top or two (but they wouldn’t be worn together, of course).

    Inspired by the recent blog post on tunics (The Tunic: Minimal vs. Bohemian), I’d like to make a bright minimalist tunic. A color blocked sun dress would be fun too!

    I would make some 50s-ish girly summer dresses, some mini skirts, and if I was really ambitious some shorts. Then I would wear them and blind people with the awesomeness of all the colors.

    My mom just gave me her quilting books because her hands won’t permit he to hand quilt any longer. There is a beautiful Amish quilt book in her collection and I’d love to make one.
