    A pintucked blouce in voile to go with a retro skirt and jacket set or maybe a wrap jumper – or perhaps pillows and a lap quilt – or retro dresses with voile trim for my daughters – purses – just a few that pop to mind in a minute.

    I’d make an extravagant dress from the Night&Day fabric for my sister’s wedding. :-)

    Gorgeous fabrics!!! I would have to make myself a dress with the Night and Day fabric, as it is simply divine! With the voile I would make some gorgeous floaty curtains for my little girl’s bedroom. The New Traditions fabric screams out cushion covers to me, which I’m in desperate need of, and maybe some quilted placemats for the kitchen. Finally, I’d use the Metro Living fabric to make dresses for my daughter and my friend’s daughter, and to make a skirt for my friend for her birthday!

    Definitely a new bag for me, along with some clothes for my little girl – she loves it when mama makes her something! :)

    Night and Day would definitely be used for a dress…and the others have so many possibilities! Either accessories for my apartment, or something for me to wear!

    Since my 5 year old is at the stage where she wants to wear matching mommy/daughter outfits, I would make a dress for her and a matching skirt for mommy!

    Completely love Night and Day. As for what I’d make, I came across this a while ago and still haven’t tried it: http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2010/08/tutorial-lunch-bag.html

    The mix of fabrics would look great. I might have to make more than one though to use up all of it!

    I’ve been wanting to make the Armistice blouse from Folkwear-organic voile would be perfect for it! A skirt from the “Night & Day” pattern, and some fun totes from the other two fabrics. All great for summer!

    They would look great in my bedroom or studio, where I do all my sewing/crafting work…pillows, bags…so many options.

    Dress for me (to fit my new nursing mama curves) from Night & Day. Dress for my little girl from Metro Living—perhaps a small diaper clutch for me or a friend out of the scraps. Pillows for a bedroom or a hang bag for a friend from New Traditions. Matching skirts for me and my six month old from Organic Voile. So many possibilities!

    Dresses and skirts!!!! I’d love to make a big poofy skirt from the Night & Day one… And New Traditions would be a lovely dress… Organic Voile could be a nice nighty and I think Metro Living would make a cool bag :)

    I’m on a dress kick, and so would likely take these fabrics in that direction. Particularly Night and Day- that’s just screaming to be a dress.

    I was just looking at Metro Living this morning! It’s so cute. I’d love to make a quilt and a dress for my daughter with it. THe voile would be for a loose blouse. As for the other two fabrics, probably bags, but I’m not sure.

    A lap quilt for my Mommy. (Since I’v been waiting for the perfect fabric for her) and a little retro inspired dress for myself and possible a wee little skirt for my friends daughter with left overs ;-)

    A dress from Metro Living, a saucy skirt from Night and Day. And possibly the Organic Voile would become a window treatment, plus something for my mom — likely a bag.

    I have too many ideas for this fabric to list! On one hand, they would all look amazing in our red, black, and white kitchen and dining area… on the other hand, I’d want to wear them!!!
