    Lovely! With 2-yard cuts and such pretty colors, I’d make summer-time blouses. Maybe something retro-style like the Burda Alexander…

    Festival Fuchsia Dresses! Cozumel Blue Tunics! Cherry Lipgloss Skirts with seersucker pockets! Cabernet shorts with Light Citron trim! I would sew a Fresh Water wedding dress so I could marry this fabric!!!

    That’s a good chunk of fabric and great colors! The cabernet is gorgeous! I would maybe make a dress…hmmm…. a purse…. a pillow….

    For me, that would depend on the color! I don’t wear a whole lot of pinks, but I love to decorate with them. So I’d use the lovely Cabernet, Cherry Lipgloss, and Festival Fuchsia for pillows, quilts or maybe even a purse. If I were to win the Cozumel Blue, Fresh Water and Light Citron, I’d use it to make beachwear. I love being outside in the summer, but don’t have many swim suit cover-ups to wear when I go into the cabin for lunch or for the days where it’s chilly out of the water.

    I would make a lovely spring shirt with contrast trim. Or several since there’s so much fabric!

    …Well I’m going to take the plunge and hope it’s non-US/international too! Spring is springing this side of the Atlantic – the clocks even go forward at the weekend. So what would I make? It’s got to be cotton dresses for spring and summer. Boat necked, boxy pleated set in short/elbow length sleeves, perhaps pleats rather than darts at the waist… that’s what I’m thinking anyway… Might still be cardi under and tights under though…
