    I make quilts and I would love to have the first one shown, the blue flower print. It would be beautiful in a quilt with white squares to accent it. Have a Merry Christmas everyone

    Definitely one of the whimsical prints in a cotton silk, I love quilting cotton prints but the fabric is too stiff, a cotton silk would be perfect!

    There’s so much to choose from. I’d love to try the cotton silk. Or maybe the cotton voile. Or both!

    The “Evergreen Matryoshka Cameo” was one of my favorites. Those little dolls are small but pack a lot in them, as the fabric does. Christmas green and the dolls beauty……There were plenty of fabrics I really liked too, reminded me of the 50’s and 60’s.

    I would get the earth and sky daffodil fabric. The shade of yellow would be perfect for a dress this time of year!

    I’d probably try to upload a cute design with bright colours and have it printed on a nice organic cotton fabric. Thanks!

    I just bought a 1967 camper and I need to make new curtains for it so it would either be somethign with a retro look or something I designed that was “retro looking” in turqoise, white and gold (those are the colors of my “Aristocrat”.)

    Wow — so many ideas already swirling in my mind! Not sure whether I’d do something on silk to use in a Victorian ballgown or vest for my husband; or do something in upholstery weight cotton the colors of my son’s high school and make items to sell to raise money for baseball or marching band!

    It’s hard to say – but a dress for me and one for my 5 year old in either the cotton knit or the sateen in either the mad man in a blue box print or something utterly fun! Thanks!

    I love giraffes, so I would chose ©2011 giraffex for a dress or skirt

    :Love the zebra drop print, but they are all awesome!. My granddaughter just redid her room in zebra prints and her favorite color is purple . I would probably choose silk, quilted, or decorator fabric to do a home dec project for her room.

    It’s a toss-up between the organic cotton voile and the sateen.

    I love the Insects fabric. It would have to be on either or the silk fabrics. I like the idea of mixing the structured insects with a floaty fabric

    Such a fun website! I’d try designing a print on some fine cotton. Maybe get a few pieces for my best sewing buds.
