    What great fabrics! I would start with a Twirl skirt for my not quite 2 year old daughter that loves to dance. Then go with a patchwork quilt, some of the “highlight” blocks could have doll dresses sewn to them (fun and you only have to make the front of the doll dress).

    I would LOVE to win this! I’d make a quilt for my baby girl and some matching cuddly patchwork toys (like an Elmer elephant!). That would look so cute…

    The fabrics are beautiful! I would make some bags, and one for my baby daughter with that pink fabric. Ohh the sky is the limit, well with theses fabrics there are not limits!

    I’m just thinking about doing some quilting … I think I’d make a quilt for my four year old daughter or perhaps make a simple patchwork fabric and then cut it to make a skirt for her.

    WoW! Awesome fabrics! I’m not sure where I’d stop with all that fabric. Bazillion ideas swirling in my brain. A double layered dress with a patchwork bottom and a one color bodice would be brilliant to make with this. Modern twist on a classical 1960’s dress. Or maybe a classical jacket to wear with anything of my desire. Million ideas swarming in my head… I <3 fabric cuts. mix&match ppl,mix&match!

    I would make some baby slippers/shoes, and some zippered pouches.

    I think I’d use the individual cuts as patchwork appliques on solid scarves or a sweater set.

    This would most definitely become part of a quilt for a future grandchild…LOVE the colors.

    I’d make a quilt for my daughter – although a bag of some sort for her would be great too! Actually doll’s clothes would be neat, to match some that I’m hoping to make for her from yardage. Kids that love that!

    Well let’s see. First I think I’d make a patchwork bag, then add some funk to a plain skirt, and then probably have fun with some scarves or pillows. The colors are lovely!

    All of this fabric is absolutely gorgeous! It would be great to be able to work with it! If I did get the chance to have this fabric I would most likely make a skirt for my neighbor who I babysit. Or I would make a patchwork dress for me!

    I’ve been really into making patchwork scarves— they go with everything. With this jellyroll I’d have enough to make all my girlfriends’ one for the holidays :-)

    I’d create some cute patchwork dolls as Christmas gifts to my MASSIVE (52) new family of in-laws :)

    oooh It’s gorgeous looking! Definitely something patchwork, probably a quilt because I have been wanting to do a patchwork quilt with coordinating fabrics from a roll like this. Or do a tote.
