  1. 11 fat quarters? Well, If I won, I would be able to make a lot of things! Some I would save for my daughter's next quilt, others would be turned into parts of dresses and pouches. This would actually be a great collection to win for me, most of my stash right now is "boy" stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What yummy fat quarters those are! But I'll be honest and say that I'm clueless about what I'd create with them ;) I don't sew...yet. So it'd probably be something more mixed media inspired than sewing inspired. Thank you both for offering up such a lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  63. i really love anna maria horner, but innocent crush is my favorite. I have it in a lot of voiles and velveteens, but no quilting cottons. I think it would be perfect for totes, and since it's from one palette, they all coordinate!
