long time no fabric giveaway 1

Well it has been a long time between fabric giveaways. I’ve been getting organised and up to date on all my past giveaways. I still have 2 running – the mother/daughter netball session with me, Keira and Liz Ellis here and the 4 x $1000 family bike packages here. And now it’s fabric time. I have 3 fabric giveaways coming up in the next few weeks as I’ve just had a few deliveries. This fabric is due to be released in September and is the latest range from Kate Spain, called Sunnyside.

It’s fresh and fun with shades of blue, green, purple, yellow, grey and orange. I’ve started using a layer cake to make this fun quilt – excuse a few triangles going the wrong way. It’s a long weekend here and I’ve been taking 20 minute breaks from what I’m doing to duck into my craft room, cut a few more squares in half and pop them into place. This quilt will probably hang over the couch and I’m just loving the colours.

I’m giving away a layer cake and charm square pack to the winner. And I’ll have 2 runners up prizes of a charm square pack each. You can enter wherever you live in the world, one entry per person.

Just tell me what you’re going to make with this prize and I’ll pick the best answer.

Good luck! I’ll pick a winner this time next week.

This would add that perfect colour to the room.

  40. Katherine Bishop says:

    We went for a lovely walk today & came across a group of old people picnicking. I said to my husband that I’d love to make us a patchwork picnic blanket.

  41. I’d love to make an A style skirt for myself or a bag to hold my knitting and crochet current projects.

  42. Charmaine Campbell says:

    I’ve never made a quilt before, but I want to make one using some pieces of my daughter’s baby blankets, and will need more fabric to go with it. She has a new yellow bed, and finding linen for it is difficult, so I want to make a unique quilt for her!

  43. These colours are screaming summer, I think a patchwork tablecloth for outside during those summer bbques would be great, even a day at the beach. What a great giveaway, Thankyou

  44. Cecilia says:

    I just started quilting this year but have caught the bug and am loving it.
    I really want to make a quilt for Ana, the incredible lady who looks after my 2 boys in family day care. She is wonderful and every year I try to give her a Christmas gift to show her how much she means to us. I’m not sure I’ve really got the ‘perfect’ gift yet, but I’m hoping making her a quilt will be the best way to show her we love her. I think Sunnyside looks perfect for the quilt for Ana.

  45. I would make a rag quilt, as I’m still learning, I was quite distressed to realise I will need to iron if I’m going to quilt.

  46. Oh, I love anything Kate Spain! Being fabric, the only logical thing for me to do with it would be make a quilt. It looks as though it’d go nicely with a deep French blue for a lovely baby quilt; my friend in Israel is expecting her third baby soon and this would be ideal!

  47. I’d use it to teach a friend the basics of quilting- she and her kids came to visit today and the hit of the afternoon was the fabric scrap basket with the 5 + 8 year old. I have a sewing date with all 3 planned for the near future! Love the fabric, bright and modern and just what a new quilter needs to start.

  48. Jill Hamilton says:

    I am making a dolls house for my granddaughter out of a disused bookcase, this fabric is perfect for the walls of the loungeroom, and the bedspreads on the little beds and a pinny and dress for the dollies…..:-)

  49. Jantine Urban-Hamming says:

    I want to make a little quilt of love for a friend who lost several babies and a matching quilt for daily use…..

  50. Louise Baker says:

    My favourite colour combo. I would make a quilt for my youngest daughter’s new couch. She is leaving home soon to take up residence in a little house she is building.

  51. I want to make a new overnight bag and these colours would be perfect. Thank you for the chance.

  52. LeannE Bodilly says:

    Definitely a summer time table runner……maybe some dresden plate placemats!

  53. Lisa Stone says:

    Hi Retro Mummy
    I would like to start my very 1st quilting project after all your inspiration on FB.
    The fabric looks absolutely stunning!!!
    Thanks for your ongoing motivation.

  54. I would make a lovely quilt for our terrace furniture. Summer is starting here, at last!!

  55. I would make my very first quilt! *gulp* For my birthday this year my unreal banana peel husband got me a Brother sewing machine (the one you recommended – NV600 – it is SO fab, thx!) and I’ve been doing lots of sewing and am getting much more confident… so I think it’s time to stop drooling over all the quilts, and start making some!! :)

  56. A quilt for one of my three teenage sons. It’s nice to see a range of fabrics that isn’t hopelessly girly.

  57. This fabric just shouts out load “Summer is here”. I would make a lovely picnic quilt to take with me when I go out with my two darling grandchildren, who just love eating ‘al fresco’.

  58. That fabric is so fresh… i would use the fabric to re-cover the bentwood rocker sitting in the spare room ( painted a horrible brown with outdated, floral material)… i would strip it back and paint the rocker itself antique white. I also have a queen-anne legged foot stool that desperately needs a new life, and would match the re-cover the footstool and make a washable cover :) xxx

  59. Love Kate Spain! I’m sure there is something in my Pinterest boards I could make. Being limited in the size of the fabric pieces, something small would be good. I’ve been eyeing off those little house pin cushions (and a few for my friends too) and a matching cover for my machine. Both would brighten up my sewing room.
    Thanks for the giveaway

  60. I desperately need new cushions for our family room. My daughters dog Harley (who lives with his Mum & Dad in Townsville now!!) ate all of the ones we had when he lived with us the last 18 months. It was like having a white Christmas every time he got to another one!! LOL He is such a gorgeous dog that we had to forgive him for his crimes!!

  61. hi Corrie i would make a patchwork sewing machine cover and matching sewing mat,it lovely happy fabric,thankyou for hosting this lovely giveaway.xx

  62. I would make a gorgeous peasant style skirt for myself to wear in summer. The colours are beautiful.

  63. I’m a foster mum of kids with special needs, so I would make this beautiful fabric into snugly quilts for the 3 little people in my life at the moment. Xx

  64. What beautiful fabric! I would love this, and i think for a change i would make something for myself, a nice throw rug or bag. I’ve been busy making things for my little boy and friends and family so something for myself would be a nice change!

  65. Hi Corrie, I would make a quilt for ME! All the quilts I’ve made to date have been given away; Quilts for Queensland, new babies and friends but never for me. So I would make myself a lap quilt with this happy fabric, to brighten my lounge room and keep the winter chills away. Thanks for the giveaway x

  66. Michele says:

    I would love to win this fabric. I have always wanted to start to learn patchwork and if I won it I would make a patchwork quilt for my daughter. This fabric would be beautiful to learn with.

  67. My first grand niece arrived last month it would be perfect for her nursery.

  68. michele kajewski says:

    I would love to win this fabric. I have always wanted to start to learn patchwork and if I won it I would make a patchwork quilt for my beautiful daughter. This fabric would be beautiful to learn with.

  69. Kathy MacKie says:

    If I won I know I’d feel like I was waiting for Christmas watching the mailman like a hawk for my package to arrive by post. Once it was delivered I know I would carefully open it, like really you know I’d frantically rip it open and oh and ah it when I first set eyes on my new fabric. Mine, all mine and free to boot, who could be more lucky than me. Knowing I have a quilt group to prepare for I would carefully slip into a Ziploc Bag because all quilters know you can’t live without those plastic storage bags. It would be my show and tell, how lucky I am to win this prettiness and it wouldn’t be beneath me to flash it a bit for my friends to fondle. After a couple of weeks my next quilt class would be the following day and I’d hopefully be able to use this win but alas I still can’t use it because, well it just looks so pretty just the way it is you know. It’s been a month and still it sits on my cutting table front and center so I can see it everyday first thing as I treat myself to some quilty time. I’m still trying to think of some project worthy of this great giveaway win and then it hits me, yes something I will see everyday, a sewing machine cover. So you see I will take my time to enjoy it before it’s transformed into something fun and unique to me.

  70. Jocelyn collie says:

    A quilt for my middle & number two daughter.

  71. I llllooooovvveeee Kate Spain fabric and this range looks amazing. I would make some hexagon flowers for my flower garden quilt:)

    With the Charm Pack I would make another Quilt for The Dandelion Appeal.
    Thank You for a Generous Giveaway Fingers Crossed.

  73. I will make a quilt for daughter, turning 9 in July! Perfect for her. I am swooning over the colours. I may have to make a smaller quilt so I can get a market bag for myself as well 😉

  74. Nicole Stephenson says:

    Hi, I would love to make a quilt with those great colours. I see your quilts and I sit in Awe. I don’t have the talent to put all the different colour/type fabrics together, so by getting all the coorindating fabrics chosen for me, that would be great. Fingers crossed (would love to get good at it to make one for my niece).

  75. I would make a hexie quilt for my Dad and his new wife – their house is always so cold! Gorgeous fabric.

  76. Georgia Brungs says:

    With 9 close friends and family all having babies starting in August this year I am on a mission to quilt a cot quilt for all of them but the one person I would love to make a quilt for out of this fabric would be for my cosin whose baby isn’t due until August but her waters broke on Friday and they are just praying that their little girl stays put for as long as possible. I would love to be able to make a beautiful quilt for their little girl so they have something handmade and special even though their little girl won’t be able to come home for at least 4-6 weeks. Thanks for the chance Corrie x

  77. I am busily making quilts for a quilting bee for sick babies and children in Hornsby Hospital. I’ve got heaps of “babyish” fabric but THIS gorgeous Kate Spain fabric would make a perfect quilt to brighten a teenage girl’s room in hospital. Being in hospital can be so isolating for young people so it would be fantastic to be able to use this fabric to bring a young patient a little sense of “home”. Thanks for another generous giveaway! :)

  78. I’ve never quilted before. This would be a good start for me, making a table runner. :) Thanks, Corrie!

  79. Ruthena Clelment says:

    A quilt for my brand new granddaughter, Phoebe, 10 weeks old and rolling over already. In fact, my only grand child. We have waited a long time for Phoebe and love her very much. Three sons in my family so it is lovely to have a little girl to sew for.

  80. Well I am a beginner and I would really like to make a special patchwork cushion cover for my Dad who is turning 60 in a couple of weeks. He is such a wonderful Dad who adores his grandchildren and it would be so lovely if we could make him a very special present for his big birthday! xx

  81. I would enjoy looking @ this gorgeous fabric while I work up the courage to attempt my first quilt for all of us to use in our lounge room and I’m sure my children would also use for play – teddy bears picnics or afternoon tea! I use to see when I was @ school & it has been so long since I’ve done anything. My husbands nan recently gifted her over locker & sewing machine so this would be beautiful fabric to work with for my return to sewing!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to dream!

  82. A table runner with a bit of each fabric & two matching placemats, then individualised placemats for each member of our family. 4 kids + Mum & Dad. :)

  83. Natalie says:

    I’d love to make a quilt (my first!) for my friend who has moved to Melbourne from Singapore – help lessen the blow winter will be for her

  84. I’d love to use this fabric to make a quilted cover for my overlocker. The colours are gorgeous!

  85. Jenny kilpatrick says:

    The Sunnyside range by Kate Spain is absolutely beautiful. The colours in this range I can see in a lap quilt on my sofa. I have just signed up for a Craftsy course using precuts. Would be great to be able to have this finished before the range is available. Thanks for the chance of doing this.

  86. These Fabrics are gorgeous! I would love to make a quilt for my baby girl – due in just under 2 months! :)

  87. Natasha Andrews says:

    Last week I got my first ever sewing machine I am 40! Today I went to Spotlight and got my sewing kit sorted – $150 later and no material or patterns yet!!

    So if I were lucky enough to win this I would start by making bunting as I hear that is a good place to start and then hopefully move on to using some in a quilt for my neighbors new baby

  88. Michelle says:

    I would love to use it to make a set of placemats and table runner for my father-in-law and his wife for their caravan. I have been promising them for a looooong time now and the colors would be just perfect! Would more than likely have enough for a couple of cushions too (to make up for how long it’s taken….)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  89. Love your quilt and what gorgeous fabric! I think I would love to make a table runner and some matching placemats from it!

  90. I love the fabric and would make my niece a quilt, possibly a kaliedoscope quilt. Thanks for the give away.

  91. If I won I would give it to my daughter who is just getting into quilting and wants to ‘make a hexagon quilt like Corries’. and the charm packs I had in my stash (From Corrie) weren’t bright enough.

  92. Deborah says:

    Oh I love love this fabric! I would definitely make a quilt for my bed – to replace the old and tattered patchwork throw I have on there at the moment! Thanks!

  93. I love the new fabric. If I won, I would make a quilt to donate to a hospital for cancer sufferers. Our quilting group have just made a quilt for such charity in a girly design, but I would love to make one that isn’t so girly for male cancer sufferers, to brighten up their treatment or hospital stay.

  94. Catriona says:

    I would love to get fabric in the mail! I would make one of those strip charm quilts for my daughter!!

  95. Samantha Marshall says:

    I’d love to make a fabulous cot quilt for my new little one, who is due in only a few weeks now. It would make a fabulous addition to our home made tradition where new babies are concerned!

  96. Hi Corrie, I’will make a quilt just like you for the living room.!
    love the fabric.
    Henny from Holland

  97. I would like some new accessories for my kitchen, a couple of table runners, pot holders, mitt, hand towel etc. My kitchen, dining & family room walls are a basic cream but with the right tones it takes on a much warmer yellow tone. I want to play this up and add a bit more home made sunshine to these important rooms.

  98. I would love to make a winter quilt to snuggle under in our living area. I’m yet to make my first quilt and this would be perfect!!

  99. I would love to make a quilt for my niece or nephew due in December!

  100. Oooo, it looks lovely. I can’t wait to see your finished quilt, it will be so happy and bright.

    I’d probably make a quilt with it, as I am definitely addicted to quilting now.

  101. Thanks for the giveaway Corrie. I struggle with choosing colours and fabrics that complement each other so these packs would be perfect. I would share the fabric with my mum so we could each make a quilt. She has been a sewer since she was young and is now teaching me. We are both new to quilts and are loving making them for all the gorgeous new mums we are to be surrounded by. Susie

  102. Patchwork baby clothes would be so much fun.

  103. With baby no.5 due in a week I desperately need a project to look forward to. You see my babies are not easy. Severe reflux has meant 3of 4 were on meds till between 3.5 & 5 years and the paed has said the odds are not in this little ones favour. I just finished a massive project of 4 quilts for my children made from their baby clothes to give to them when I go into hospital. Now I need a project to dream about while I am comforting my crying baby. Am I the only one that chats to my little ones about projects when there is nothing more I can do to comfort them but hold them?

  104. I would make a bag to save my cross stitch work!
    Thanks .

  105. Hi Corrie! The colours in this fabric collection are just divine :-) I would love to have a go at making some cushion covers. I’ve had the inserts for an age, just have been looking for the “right” covers! Think I found them!! Jetts ox

  106. I think a strip quilt would look lovely with these fabrics, just lengths of fabric sewn together and cut into long strip sets of differing widths. They are lovely :)

  107. I love the colours for this, so bright and happy. Perfect for me to make a beautiful quilt for my baby boy to use. Please, please, please pick me!

  108. I would make a tota bag or two…patchwork square on top, muslin, embroidered, on the bottom….beautiful giveaway :)

  109. Michele T says:

    This may be hard to believe… I have never had a layer cake before! But seriously, I have been thinking that the reading pillow and toss cushions on my bed need new covers… something cheery and fresh like… Sunny Side! If there is enough fabric leftover I’d make one of those fancy-shancy bed runners! Thanks for the chance!

  110. I am crushing on those colours!! I would totally make my first disappearing 9 patch quilt with those fabrics, for the living room so my big teenager could cuddle up on the couch under something not so “girlie”!!

  111. Anne Haun says:

    I would love to make a charity lapquilt for nurshing hope residents – think these colors would cheer them up!

  112. marlene says:

    I think it would make a darling tablecloth! Love your site…..

  113. I would like Stuffables® Containers received the prestigious “Good Buy” award from Good Housekeeping I like these because the seal stretches thank you for the giveaway

  114. barbara woodd says:

    My one of my grandkids a quilt, thankd

  115. Lindsay says:

    This would make a lovely quilt for my bed. The colors are just lovely!

  116. I would like to make a fan cover (yep, this thing is just so hard to clean from the dust uter no-use at winter) and a round funny pillow, both for my son bedroom. This fubric will worl just fun!

  117. Rebecca Bray says:

    Sorry to admit this Corrie I have no idea what a layer cake is. Judging by the other comments I guess I’d have enough fabric to make pretty dresses for my girls. I’ve never made clothes before but you’re site is very inspiring so I would love to give it a go using that gorgeous fabric. I was shopping at the weekend just browsing and I was able to resist buying a really simple dress like the pillowcase designs you showcase. I thought I’d give that a go as I’ve seen Corrie explain how easy they are to make. The girls would love matching dresses for their dolls so depending on the amount of fabric id give that a go. Thanks for a great blog xxxx Rebecca mummy to Ellie 3 and Izzie 2

  118. Oh may, this will not be the best answer, but I would make a cozy quilt to snuggle in the sunshine-fabrics, when outside it´s raining. Just in the moment it rains again in Germany, and we have really enough water (every where the rivers are out of the beds). I LIKE TO HAVE SUNSHINE, and when it is only an fabric.

  119. I’m just loving these great colours! My son (6 years old) would love it if I would make a big pillow case for his bedroom with this fabric. I just started quilting so I’d be thrilled to win this and make him something nice for his bedroom.

    By the way, I just love your blog, thanks for sharing your beautiful family with us.

    X Wendy

  120. I would make a quilt for my youngest daughter. I am busy trying to make quilts for each of the girls – the middle one has one in the works. Now it is time to think about one for my 17 year old. The fabrics would suit her – modern and fun.

  121. My mom lives 3,000 km away from me, so I want her to have the things that remind her about me and keep a part of me. She’ll come on vacation in august and sunnyside quilt will be a wonderful gift for her.

  122. I am blessed with a seamstress/patchworker for a mum. While I am super crafty I used to think sewing had jumped a generation with me but now, with my 14yr old daughter learning to sew I am hooked as well! If I was your lucky winner I would start by making a patchwork ipad cover and fabric jewellery (doing a course in the upcoming school holidays). My other school holiday project by the way are sock monkeys!

  123. Hi : )
    I’ve been wanting to make a quiet church book for some time for my four year old daughter. But not the daggy kind. I’ve been waiting for the right material. And I think this fabric range has great lines, perfectly modern & I could have the fabric dolls sporting a bit of a retro look with the orange don’t you think?..

  124. Michele C says:

    I’m hoping to make my son’s extremely patient and enthusiastic year 2 teacher a quilt to thank her for a great year. It takes me so long to finish a quilt that I have to start during the July holidays to that its completed by December.

  125. We have been living through the chaos of major repairs to our home for the last two months and finally my living room is finished, freshly painted and ready to move back into. I can just imagine a gorgeous throw quilt in those amazing colours to offset the fresh paint and give a homely feel to the room!

  126. I want to make a quilt for my littles ones (3 months, 1 year and 3 years) for when we play outside, go to parks or the big ones are off running through a splash pad! It’s perfect for living life on the “sunny side!”

  127. I would make a quilt for my nearly 13 year old son, he’s requested a quilt for his birthday in September, should give me time! Love the colour combinations ; )

    Thanks Corrie

  128. María Cristina says:

    Wonderful fabrics!
    Enjoy sewing a blanket for my little granddaugther … a nice dream.

  129. The colours are so happy, I’d love to use it for some cushions or curtains in our caravan

  130. Karen Muller says:

    Hi Beautiful fabric. I would love to make a gradmas’s garden fower quilt and this would be some beautiful colours to use. This is going to be a quilt for myself as I usually make the quilts for other people so would be special to have some beautiful fabric.

  131. Wow this fabric is beautiful, you are so lucky to be able to play with it before September. I love how it is Spring-like/Summery without being garish!

    I have an enormous Pinterest board dedicated to quilts. I know it sounds redundant, but I would love to combine this gorgeous fabric with one of those inspiring designs. I always say I want to make a quilt, but to me it’s the best possible use of fabric. Quilts pay the highest respect to showcasing beauty!

    Love your work Corrie! From Mel, another formerly Sydney based accountant :-)

  132. Catherine Atkinson says:

    this would be perfect for a” sunny” grandma cuddle blanket for when the little ones need a squishy warm hug or just some grandma lap time. IT would look just perfect hanging over my chair waiting in anticipation.

  133. Oh what gorgeous fabric! I have always wanted to make a picnic blanket quilt, and this gorgeous happy fabric would be perfect! It would be so lovely as a half square triangle quilt with a scrappy binding. (i have been pinning triangle quilts on pinterest like a crazy person!) what a wonderful project to work on during winter, so that its all ready for spring & maybe even the occasional carpet picnic during winter! (though my carpet is not as lovely as yours!, inspires me to save up!) might have to start pinning picnic menu ideas!

  134. I think I am with lots of other people Kate Spain is one of my favourite designers, I would make this quilt again, the one at the botton of the post. Made for the challenge in Madrona Road fabrics for the Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild, lots of HST and just the placement makes for a really interesting quilt, this is only lap size and I would love to makeit for two people to sit under. http://suesplaceinthesun.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/qca-handmade-swap.html

  135. I’d make a one off individual girls skirt/tee set with a patch inspired skirt and applique tee with a hand drawn image. I’d then donate or auction off the set with money going to charity…turn someones day Sunnyside :)

  136. Michelle says:

    This material looks very nice. What would I make with it?…. In my head, a hundred ideas! But when I finally found a spare moment, I might make a quilt, I love a handmade quilt. Or some bunting. Or some bags. Or!!!

  137. What beautiful fabric! I have been wanting to learn how to make a quilt for so long and I think this might be just the thing to make me take the plunge and get started! I would love to make a quilt for my little girl, she is now 8 months ……maybe if I start now I might just find enough time to finish by the time she is ready for a big bed! Some time away I know! I don’t know you how you manage to find time to make all the beautiful things you make with 5 little people to take care of. I think the blues in this fabric are so gorgeous, my little girl is called Iris and so the blues and yellows(just like the flowers) would be perfect for her!

  138. What gorgeous fabric!! Well it’s been a very long time since I made a quilt so this would be a great start to making my 2 1/2 year old daughter her own quilt for her bed. I’d only do a simple pattern as I’m just a beginner it this would look fantastic regardless!!! Thanks Corrie, great giveaway :)

  139. A dress each for my girls, if there’s enough, it’s beautiful fabric.

  140. Hmmm, I have been loving the grey/yellow combination lately so this grabbed my attention straight away! Expecting number 3 in a few months (my third girl!!!! Eeeeeek!!!) and my nappy bag has fallen apart so maybe a patchwork bag to fit everything in or a pram blanket that’s a little less PINK than everything I already own (I need a change!) We’re also buying our first house later in the year so maybe some patchwork cushion covers to get our ‘home’ started.

  141. I would, predictably, make a quilt.

  142. Oh I am so giddy at those amazing colours. I would LOVE to make a picnic mat/ play mat for my lil girl and my boy on the way. It seems like the perfect combo for girl and boy. Please don’t deny me such a gift. 😛

  143. I’d be making some bunting and some quilted cushion covers…for our new home in the uk…leaving sydney in a few weeks after many happy years here and would be great to have a project to entertain me to stave off the chaos of relocating…and to have some special new homemade goodies for my 4 and 1 year olds new rooms :)

  144. Lyn Schubert says:

    I would make a fabulous”twirly” dress for my 3 year old grand daughter. Love the colours. Thanks for the chance Corrie.

  145. Karrie Smith says:

    I would use it in a pretty quilt!

  146. Krystle says:

    I’ve slowly been learning to sew by making some patchwork cushion covers. I’d continue use the fabric to make another cover. I’m hopeful one day i’ll be able to move onto quilts :)

  147. I would make matching outfits for my 3 yr old daughter ad newborn son.

  148. Such beautiful colours! Like most people here, I would probably attempt a Spring-time dress for my daughter or a small quilt for our home.

  149. Tracy Martens says:

    I’m going to attempt my very first quilt. I’m looking forward to the challenge.

  150. Some bright new cushions for the lounges. Bring some sunshine into this cold winter!

  151. Wow – I admire you for being able to give away even the smallest scrap of ‘Sunnyside’ (or anything Kate Spain for that matter!)! As you are generously giving away a layer cake and charm packs (someone else has done the cutting – yay!!!), I would make a lap quilt for one of my daughter’s teacher. She has not settled easily into year 1 and her teachers have just been wonderful. Reading and writing is taking a little longer for her to master than it did for her older siblings, but the care and attention she has received from her teachers has helped her improve in leaps and bounds. I would need to make it in plenty of time to give to her teacher at the end of the school year (so that I have a few months of looking at it – and touching it every time I walked past – before it is gifted!).

  152. Corrie, don’t fall from your chair laughing, but I am going to use the charm pack to make it into a quilt for my bunnies! A charm pack makes a perfect size quilt for them.

    And if I am the lucky top winner with a layer cake AND charm pack, then one quilt for bunnies, and one matching quilt for my gals who share the room with the bunnies!!

  153. Thank you! The colour combo seems to be quite neutral so a baby quilt I need to make for a bub due in September. I haven’t seen anything I like thus far but this seems perfect.

  154. I really want to make quilted covers for the toaster and a few other appliances, to hide them and keep the dust off them.

  155. I love Kate Spain, and have been so eagerly awaiting the arrival of this line in stores! This giveaway is such a treat! Imagine being able to get it earlier!! I would use the fabric to make a lap quilt for my gorgeous mum for her birthday. Quilts have been made for so many but not her, so this years birthday gift is a given!
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter! Got my fingers and toes crossed!

  156. I remember going to a beach called Sunnyside as a child – the layer cake would be perfect to use for the Impromptu Quiltalong by Katy@ I’m A Ginger Monkey.

  157. A gorgeous retro Kimono for my niece! Why not! She loves everything Japanese and the layer cake fabrics will look an absolute treat! Now that’s thinking outside the “square”!

  158. Jo Matheson says:

    I would definitely make a quilt. Those fresh colours would be perfect and I love hand appliqué and hand quilting. So much potential for something beautiful.

  159. I’d make a quilt for sure, keen to do my first disappearing 9 block!

  160. I make quilts for an orphanage in Kenya, I have to use fabrics given to me. It would be awesome to have a set of matching fabrics to make a pretty quilt for a girl there. Very simple, squares or triangles. Love it

  161. I am just new at this sewing thing (I only bought my first machine two weeks ago). Lucky I have my very experiences “sewing” mum to help me. I would love to try to make a small blanket to use while watching TV.

  162. If I one I would make quilt for my son in the army living in Melbourne as he just turned 18 and his first Melbourne winter and away from me so that he was wrapped in love by me.

  163. I meant won :)

  164. New house = new quilt, like the colors of the fabric to make a quilt to get under while hanging on the couch.

  165. Barbara says:

    It would have to be a picnic blanket – we had no summer last year, just rain, but this summer is looking much sunnier so time to get out and enjoy it! Thanks for the chance to win.

  166. Michelle says:

    I’m moving house and I would like to make a quilt for my son. So it would be a fun move and it would brighten his day

  167. I’d make a quilt, just a small one to satisfy my mother’s constant nagging to take up quilting, then if there was any leftovers I’d make a few little cuddle pouches for my guinea pigs to sleep in during winter. They may as well stay warm in style!

  168. Caroline Shanks says:

    I’d make a pet blankie for my cats to laze in style

  169. Melanie Farrugia says:

    I have a near new sewing machine and I have always wanted to make a patch work quilt this would get me moving

  170. Erica Peach says:

    The fabric looks amazing. I would love to give this to my mum who, in between helping my sister and I as much as she can, has rediscovered her passion for all things fabric – knitting, sewing and just taking up quilting. I’d love for her to just enjoy making something for her (not the kids for once)!

  171. I’d make Monica Poole’s gorgeous Sea Spray quilt for my little boy who is 4. He has been watching me piece Sea Spray in blues and greens for his big brother’s 9th birthday. (It’s my first quilt!) I thought I’d make a quilt for my little one’s birthday in October and asked him what colour he would like his quilt to be and he said “Wewwow!” That’s how he says yellow (his favourite colour) and I love it so much. This fabric pack would be perfect for him. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, Corrie.

  172. I’m currently sewing a book that includes pics of family who live interstate … this fabric will fit in beautifully on the pages of those who live in QLD.

  173. I would love to make a quilt. As with everything I make, it will go to a child who is homeless.

  174. Hi Corrie, thank you for the giveaway. I still a beginner in quilting but I would make a new cot blanket for my little daughter. She is exactly 1 week older than your Emerson. I made her first blanket from an old pillowcase and she needs now a new one as she is almost 80 cm tall now. I would make it for her first birthday! We are entering in the summer now but the weather is really cool and rainy here on the other side of the world! :o)

  175. I’d make a dress for my sister-in-law baby (in belly) and maybe a blanket too.

  176. Patty D says:

    I love Kate Spain. I would pair this with some leftover layer cake squares of Honey HOney and make a quilt for my aunt. thanks for chance to win.

  177. Janine Powell says:

    I would use this bright sunny material in a sewing day with my mum & nan to create a pretty cot quilt for the daughter I am expecting (she’ll need to be surrounded pretty things in her room to compensate for her brothers tractors spread around the rest of the house!)

  178. Martha Farner says:

    I would love to make a baby quilt with the fabric.

  179. I have just had my 6th little bubba! After so many kids I am itching to get crafty. I’d like to sew her some beautiful little outfits with this! Also some sweet cuddly toys. After so many kids, I have finally had the time to shop for patterns online. I just haven’t had time to get some fabric though! 😛

  180. I love these colours too and would use them to make me a lap quilt for the lounge, and any leftovers to make a ‘plus’ cross cushion!

  181. I would attempt to make my first ever simple quilt for my new baby boy on the way. With any left overs I would make a matching bib. Love the gorgeous colours!

  182. Given my current quilt obsession, I would have to say I would make another quilt. I love the soothing colour choices in this range. Perfect for a quilt to snuggle under.

  183. Sunnyside is just begging to be made into a picnic blanket for summer picnics down at the beach!

  184. Morgan Cesa says:

    My best friend is expecting her first baby any day now—I would love to make a quilt for her to have and hand down to the other children who I’m sure will come. In any case, I may have to find this fabric once it comes out in September and sew up a pair of quick change trousers—how cute would they be?

  185. I’d make my first quilt ever .. maybe a baby quilt, if things go well 😉

  186. Hi Corrie

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    I would begin a baby quilt for myself. as I normally crochet for my friends’ babies.

  187. What would I make? Easy-peasy.

    A quilt for my daughter’s bed. She is not so girly girl, so the colours are perfect. She currently sleeps with 2 old woollen blankets on (old as in they used to be on MY bed as a girl). Just make the girl a quilt already Mum!

  188. I think I’d make a cot quilt – I love Kate Spain for baby girls, as the colours are always pretty without being too baby-girl-ish! Sunnyside is no exception. Love it! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  189. This fabric looks perfect for a kaleidoscope quilt or something similar that uses the nature of the pattern to create mirroring images!

  190. Amy Edwards says:

    I would love to make some padded picture frames and cutely shaped cushions!

  191. Beautiful fabric!
    I would like to make dresses for my 7yo an 5yo nieces in New York, my 2yo daughter here in Adelaide, and my new 3month old baby cousin in England and unite my favourite girls around the world in gorgeousness!

  192. Mum of Four says:

    Hi Corrie,
    I have recently discovered your blog and am really enjoying your posts – I have just tonight tried your parsnip and apple soup.
    All of the lovely, beautiful ‘crafty’ ideas that I come across seem a little girly and as I am a mum to four gorgeous boys, these craft projects don’t seem to ‘fit’ quite right within our family… hence I tend to admire lots of ideas but make nothing! I seem to spend my entire time mending, which is not my ideal use of my sewing machine… so my plan would be to actually sit down, make a cup of tea, and actually see through to completion a crafty project that all of my family members would enjoy and get use of…. A patchwork throw rug (similar to the beginnings of yours, sorry) that we could all use to snuggle under whilst watching the footy… or the soccer… or the rugby…

  193. The truth or a good sounding answer? Good sounding answer beautiful matching cushions and a couple of change purses for girlfriend gift, the honest version is pat it for a day or 2, then search on pinterest for approximately 4.6 hours.

    spend half a day flicking between patterns, then ask my craft group what they think, while keeping a close eye that it does not accidently disappear in thier craft bags.

    take a big deap breath get bold and cut out cushions and change purses for my wonderful girlfriends.

  194. Renae Elsie Georg says:

    So I taught myself how to sew by hand and can make gorgeous little dolls and now I’m learning how to use a sewing machine and create bigger items like clothing; so… if I won this gorgeous fabric I would make a dress for my daughter and a dolly with a matching dress.

  195. I’d give the charm pack to my creative teenage daughter to do with as she wishes, and I would use the layer cake to make a quilt! Thanks for the chance! I adore Kate Spain’s fabrics, and haven’t seen this line in person yet! :)

  196. Lotte van der Linden says:

    I would make a quilt for one of my collegue’s who is about to undergo chemo after breastcancer operation two weeks ago. Something nice and cheerful to cuddle under.

  197. Tory Huth says:

    I would make it a gift for my sister. She love to make patchwork quilts by hand but it always struggles find fantastic material, and I always struggle with presents for her. This would kill two birds with one stone.

  198. I would make an apron to inspire me to bake more sweet treats!

  199. What divine fabrics. I have never used a layer cake or a charm pack, but can see they would be a delight to work with. I have a grandchild on the way – would definitely make a quilt that hopefully would be kept for years and years.

    Thanks for the giveaway


  200. Alexandra says:

    gorgeous line of fabric, would have to go with giant tumbler or hexagons, or wonky four patch…no wait a disappearing four patch!!!

    thank you

  201. Charlotte E says:

    I would make a quilt for myself. Every quilt I have made has been for someone else and now its time to turn the tables and do something for me :-)

  202. Penelope says:

    Our first Grandbaby will be born in November so would love to put a quilt together an possibly the backing or appliques on bibs!

  203. Stacy Alfano says:

    We have three girls and the two oldest share a room. Were finally moving the oldest to a room of her own, and I would love to make her a quilt with this for her bed!

  204. Rebecca says:

    I would make some little summer skirts to sell at our School Fete in November.

  205. I am a beginner in the quilt’ s world, as I only sew for about an year. I’m already obsessed with fabrics and this ones are difficult to find here in sunny Portugal. I would make a beautiful quilt to lighten up our living room (maybe put it over the sofa) and I think this colors would match the 50’s furniture that we have. It would be so beautiful and I promise I send you a photo of the finished quilt (and the living room also) :) Thank you!! Kisses from Sara, Portugal

  206. Belinda Smetioukh says:

    I really want to make new cushions for the couch,
    And this fab fabric would distract from all the mess!
    But it’s so beautiful, it would almost be a crime,
    Not to make my little one a dress!

  207. I would love to make a couple of aprons for gifts, and matching oven mitts.

  208. Carol M. says:

    Wow, if I was fortunate enough to win this giveaway I would definitely make a summery dress for my daughter! Thanks so much for posting this giveaway!

  209. We have just bought 5 acres in the country to build a new (our dream!) house. Soooo excited!! I would use this gorgeous fabric to make a quilt/ playmat for my little ones to use in their new playroom. It really is so sunny and happy. Corrie, I have LOVED looking at your Pinterest boards for ideas…we have very similar taste in style. Oh, ps I’m getting my first ever sewing/craft room yipeeeee!! xxx

  210. I have fallen prey to a clamshell addiction – nothing like a hot cuppa on one side, a pile of lovely fabric just trimmed and waiting to be basted on clamshell templates on the other and your feet up for a good long binge on trashy TV. With two cushions under my belt it is time to tackle a clamshell quilt.

  211. Hi Corrie! My daughter has just turned one – she’s a sweet heart. Truly. I’m not biased. Over this past year I have been working towards providing a play room with quality toys that aren’t commercial. I have been incorporating Montessori principles & our play room often looks like a snozelen room which is a blast! I have turned my hand to making toys. If I was to win this fabric, I would love to make a couple of small soft toys – namely a fabric bunny as my daughter loves her furry toy bunny but it would be great to provide her with a twin one of a different fabric/texture for her sensory development :) Bonus would be, if she takes to the fabric bunny, if furry bunny ever dies I know I can replace him. I fear the day bunny ‘dies’ ….. PS Did I mention my daughter is a real sweet heart. Seriously. :)

  212. Jennifer Barr says:

    I would love to make a quilt :)

  213. Erica. S says:

    I have been longing to try my hand at patchwork for the first time and I have this adorable cushion project that I’d love to make for my kitty cat! This might sound a little posh for my cat with this gorgeous fabric, but he deserves it and of course it has to be pretty for the living room!

  214. Oh…the fabrics look so nice! I’d love to win any of the prizes. I’m starting to sew and my next project on my list is a doll quilt to go with my baby daughter’s 1st birthday present, a wicker doll pram :) A fabric roll or charm square pack from Kate Spain would be perfect for that…fingers and toes crossed :)

  215. Mandy Shaw says:

    I’d make Angel Bags which are used by an organisation called Angels for the Forgotten. These bags are used for all crisis care packages they distribute to children going into foster care. http://www.angelsfortheforgotten.org/craft-challenge.html

  216. Definitely a Family Throw. That we can all create together and that lives in our loungeroom to always keep us cosy and warm!

  217. Oh gosh too many possibilities!! Might be easier to say what I wouldn’t contemplate making with this gorgeous fabric! I wouldn’t make underwear cause then no one would be able to see the lovely designs…. I hope!!

  218. Judith Senese says:

    A few Summer bright cushions for the couch and bedroom. To liven up the rooms while being able to rest my tired head on something gorgeous.

  219. perhaps, it’s not the best way of using, but I want some new pillows with teddies in new cloths near thees pillows. Very light and summer design in our room :)

  220. barbara says:

    I would make a chemo quilt for a child babscorbitt@gmail.com

  221. We have just bought 5 acres in the country to build a new (our dream!) home. I would use this gorgeous fabric to make a quilt / playmat for my little ones to use in their new playroom. The fabrics are so sunny and happy! It would be such a nice project to work on as the house gets built. Corrie, I have been LOVING looking at your Pinterest boards…we have very similar taste in style. Thank you for your daily inspiration, I love checking in @ Retromummy xxx

    • Oh, so sorry, I thought that my comment from yesterday had not worked somehow…but it seems to be that my iPad had not refreshed :-( . I only wanted to enter once 😉 xxx

  222. Jayne K says:

    Dolly outfits for the Little Madam’s Little Madam!

  223. terry wedding says:

    I would take it all to our local quilting group so we could all share and make some great creations

  224. Lucy Leland says:

    I have a gorgeous artsy friend whose elderly neighbour recently passed away. I know my friend will miss the ubiquitous covered coathangers she received on every occasion so I’d like to make her some to help keep the memory alive.

  225. Elizabeth Davey says:

    a quilt that could be handed down from generation to generation

  226. Barbara Fehmel says:

    I am going to make covers for my twin GREAT GRANDDAUGHTERS BEDS.

  227. Catherine Roberts says:

    I’d make some gorgeous table placemats to start my day bright and right, and have my hubby serve me eggs, sunny side up!

  228. RACHAEL says:

    I’ve always wanted to make quilts since I was little. I was given one made by my Gran (that I still have) and I always loved it so much! I would love to make one for my girls that they would hopefully love as much :)

  229. Sunnyside is so pretty! – I love Kate Spain – and I for sure would make a Sunnyside Up quilt for my daughter just graduating this year! Her nickname is Sunny :) Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  230. I would love to start working on my first quilt!

  231. I would make a Granny square quilt for me! To cheer me up every day!

  232. Maybe I’m the only selfish one here- because I would make a high waisted skirt for myself. Maybe there would be enough left over to make one for my 4 year old too!

  233. Jennifer says:

    I would like to make a throw or lap quilt to give to someone at the nursing home to let them know someone cares about them.

  234. Michelle Pyne says:

    2 matching ‘poofs’ for our family room :)

  235. Natalie says:

    The dollhouse my Dad made for me when I was a tot is now in need of a reno so that my gorgeous niece can play with it. We will be using fabrics for the walls, floors, recovering furniture, and sewing new linens for the beds and tables. This fabric would be perfect, and will likely last until the next generation of ‘dollhouse caretaker’ comes along :)

  236. Cheryl McKibbin says:

    dolls blankets for my two daughters “babies”

  237. Dee Turner says:

    Hi Corrie! Who won the beautiful Kate Spain fabric? I’m only a tiny bit jealous :)

  238. Jean Rutherford says:

    Beautiful fabric. It fits so well with the caravan colour scheme that I would make a throw for the couch. Love it!!
