  1. My grandmother made quilts for all her 9 children and 11 grandchildren. The pink/white was her favorite ( or maybe the only fabric she could find in the 1920s). The colors of the fat quarter give away made me think of her and all the time she spent hand-piecing and quilting these works of arts! I am the only one of the grandchildren that quilt…unfortunately I lost her when I was young and she wasn’t able to guide me. But I do enjoy my baby quilt that I used on my two children, too. Love Moda fabric, too!

  2. Vickie, I always have a stash of themed kitchen towels on hand that I make when I get the chance to sew to use as instant gifts for the holidays or an unexpected event

  4. I don’t really have one, I tend to make different things each time. I do make crayon rolls for small children quite often though!

  6. I make many different items for gifts, little dolls, collages–fabric or paper or pillows. It depends on the recipient and what their likes or decoration style.
    Cards that are collaged with different paint and papers are always included.
    Thankds

  7. I love making 10-minute table runners. Sometimes I jazz them up by piecing the centers, but I think the concept of the 10-minute table runner is perfect for quick gifts. Excited to start embellishing some cloth diapers for burp cloths for a baby gift, too.

  8. I love to give quillows. For an added personal touch, applique the recipients name on the bag. When it is in blanket form, you can keep your toes toasty in the attached bag. When you are done just fold it up. You can never have too many blankets!

  9. My favorite go to protect is wool applique, pin cushions are a favorite project from scrapes and wool for great gifts. Pink is my favorite color. Would love to be a winner.

  10. Love this selection of pinks! My go to project is art postcards for any occasion. I put them on miniature easels. I am going to be a grandma this summer and would love this pack!

  11. Such beautiful prints! I would love these fabrics to make a quilt for my niece, a cancer surviver! She’s a brave young woman who decide to have a double mastectomy and is now going through chemotherapy.

  12. I do not have an easy go to project, but am in the process of making quilts for my three children, 11 grand children, and two great-grandchildren. 4 completed and 1 in process….. Many of the girls LOVE pink and these beautiful pinks would work out great!

  13. It depends on who it’s for. It can be anything from a set of pillowcases to a kitchen set of pot holders, tea towels and apron to a quick baby quilt.

  14. Oh what I could do with a bundle of pink – the only question is which daughter or grand daughter or great grand daughter would it be for! Pick me please!

  15. I make lap quilts but it does take some time. If it is a wedding present I will make 4 or more table runners to cover the seasons. If I have no time a basket cover and some homemade muffins with some fresh whipped Honey-butter. I love the fabric.

  16. I’ve dove into the realms of bold colors such as bright teal and a shiny pink for a quilt I am making my niece; however this bunch just attracted my eye for an idea I have been having in my mind for a quilt I have been wanting to make. This would be absolutely perfect for the idea. Stay tuned on my sewstitchingcute.blogspot.com whether I win this or not… thanks for the inspiration and finalized fabric idea for the idea!

  17. oh how lovely. after 30 years of blues I am changing our bedroom to pinks and greens. Thanks for this wonderful chance.

  18. My easiest go to project is a pattern called Strawberry Pir. It uses fat quarters and some yardage of a focus fabric.. Thanks for the chance to win this bundle! Deb Strain does the nicest fabric lines.

  20. A small art quilt makes a wonderful fast gift. Oh, my niece Victoria would love a quilt made with this collection of pinks! She even has a pink guitar.

  21. My favorite go to gift is a fabric bag, new fabric, recycled jeans, anything that will go with the person who is receiving it, and takes less the 15 minites from start to finish……

  22. Blankets are my go to gift. Can’t have too many homemade covers. I have 2 grand-daughters who love pink in all shades and patterns. This stack would be perfect for summer light weight covers.

  23. Lately everyone has been having babies, so I have several receiving blankets and bibs on hand. But I also like to make pillows and wine carriers for those without little ones.

  24. I’m teaching my 9 yr old granddaughter to quilt. She is such a joy! She has made a lap quilt & a doll quilt so far. Of course pink is her favorite color. She picked a pink cast when she broke her arm. 😉 I like to make wall hangings for quick gifts and I’d like to use these beautiful fabrics with her to show her how much fun wall hangings are and then she can hang it on her bedroom wall.

  25. I have two or three things that I love to make as gifts: bags, headbands, and quilts. It depends on the occasion and the recipient, of course. This stack of fabrics appears to be beautifully coordinated and would work for all three items so well.

  26. at first I thought the pinks would be lovely in breast cancer charity gifts…but then I realized I will soon have a third granddaughter ..so I guess I know where it will go…

  28. My go-to project for a quick and easy gift is to make potholders. A great way to use scraps! Thank you for the opportunity to win some beautiful fabric.

  29. For a quick gift, I make quilted cosmetic pouches. Sometimes I include a beaded suncatcher inside – a big pretty crystal strung with beads or smaller crystals only takes a few minutes and provides lots of rainbows! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome fabric bundle!

  30. I need to make some baby quilts, and those pinks would do so nicely for sweet litttle girsl….that would just be awesome to win those fabrics. Thank you for the chance.

  32. I make mini quilts (12″ x 12″) for one of my best friends, and tea bag caddies and thread catchers for quick b-day gifts for my sewing peeps. I also have made NUMEROUS fabric nesting dolls, too.

  33. My favorite go-to gift project is the folded star trivet. It looks very complicated, but is pretty easy to make. Winning all that pink fabric would be a thrill for me as I have 4 sons and 3 grandsons and rarely have any need to sew pink. I would love a pink quilt for me! Thanks for the chance to win the pretty pink bundle.

  35. I love making jelly roll quilts and since I have a lot of grandchildren to make for, I would love that pink fat quarters. You can use up so much of the leftovers from other projects, like table runners, that it’s hard to decide what’s next. How about a patchworked animal (fish) for the front of a boring sweatshirt?

  36. Pretty! I have been making coaster sets using string piecing so when all 4 coasters are placed in a square they look like a finished quilt block 🙂

  37. Wow !! Love the colors !! Fun gifts to make…new baby quilt for a new niece due in June.. she has big sister..looks like I can make two matching quilts for them …this would be perfect as half my fabric search would be done ! THANKS

  38. I love making quilted coasters for my go-to, quick, handmade project. They’re great for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, birthdays, Mother’s Day, and much more!

  40. I love making baby quilts:) There seem to be so many babies being born lately and lots of them in hospitals, that have Mom’s that need something special to take their babies home in:) Matching diapers bags are nice to have too!

  41. I love to make flannel rag quilts to give as a quick handmade gift. The quilts are easy to sew and everyone loves to snuggle up in a flannel quilt on a cold winter night.

  42. My quickest gift is a set of dinner napkins that I make using a rolled hem on my serger. One yard gives me 4 napkins so just need to pick a fabric appropriate for the person or occasion.

  44. I usually keep Disney character material on hand for quick baby quilts or if I know the nursery theme, compliment it. I have several “rails” patterns I use for fast projects. I have made one pink cancer themed quilt for a raffle. “Surrounded by Love” would be perfect for another project.

  45. I have been on a pink jag lately. Vintage pink poodles, pink glass, pink fabric, two pinks shirts I haven’t worn yet. These fats would be perfect inspiration for a summer duffle bag or new placemats.

  46. I just finished a breast cancer t-shirt quilt for a two time breast cancer survivor and I think it would be great to make tote bags for breast cancer survivors out of this Moda fabric. My quick go to quilt is the disappearing 9 patch (it is quick and it looks like you did a lot of piecing.

  47. Eatable and tickled pink! mmm pretty and sweet tasty pink inspires me to surround myself with my passion from within to quilt with unconditional love and harmony!

  49. I am relatively new to quilting and have never sewn anything using just fat quarters and would love to give it a try. The colors are gorgeous..

  50. My last unmarried cousin is getting married this Fall and this fabric would be perfect for a quilt for her wedding gift. I have be wondering what to do for the gift and since it took her so long to find true love…they could enjoy it everyday. Moda is my favorite and if my desired patterns and colors are available in Moda that’s the only fabric I buy.

  51. I have a little granddaughter who is teaching me to embrace pink! I like to make fortune- cookie needle holders or lanyards for badge /scissor holders for quickie gifts.

  53. Hi–the most fun and very easy hand made gift I make is an
    Origami coaster. Its fun to choose complementary fabrics and mix them up
    Into a set of four coasters tied with a pretty ribbon.

  54. My three year old grand daughter LOVES, LOVES pink ! I can think of endless projects to make for her with all these wonderful pinks – such as a book tote for library days, a sun hat, a play mat and even a beach blanket. As long as it’s pink she will love it! Thank you for the opportunity to win such a lovely stack of fabric. (I know I am not alone among other quilters when I say – I love to find a place to display my new fabric and just look at it and ponder all the possibilities!) Quilting – it’s a sickness – but oh such a lovely one! Valerie

  55. I start off with good intentions to make something quick but the fabric often takes over and a potholder becomes a runner, a runner becomes a lap quilt! I start to play with the patterns and fabric and find myself wondering ,” what would happen if I just added another block?” Or “if I turn it this way and add a border or appliqué a vine and some leaves …” Before I know it, time is irrelevant and I am caught up in possibilities. I love to experiment with tone on tone and with one range of colour, such as this lovely stack of pinks! Already, I imagine a soft background of pink with flowers and vines appliquéd .. Or maybe a runner of pink stars … Or ….

  56. My favorite projects for quilted gifts are place mats, insulated hot pads, and casserole cozies;
    my friends love them, and hint for more.
    Those Moda pinks are just beautiful.
    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  57. Will drop my big project to make something small–table-topper or wall hanging that represents the season or holiday. The pink bundle would be very handy as
    a baby girl is on the way in our family and will need her very own quilt. Thank you

  58. Such pretty fabric! I don’t have a go to gift because I’m still a newbie quilter. However, I’m learning to make totes which are quick and so customizable. I’ve also made cafe curtains which are super quick.

  59. I like to free motion quilt and than trepanto printed panels . Small projects hang so fun in wooden embrodery hoops. Larger panels on stretcher frames. Add raffia trailing off adjustment screw and beads also coodinating on project and raffia.

  60. My Aunt and my best friend “Alfiona” both quilt, Auntie by machine, and Alf totally handsewn and hand quilted – both are SO beautiful! I’ve always been interested in both paper art, printing, and crafts; started embroidering in my teens – it was all the fad to embroider your denim jacket and jeans, although I also did pillowcases etc. it was a great connection with my mom, for we both embroidered but no matter how hard she tried to teach me, I couldn’t knit three stitches. I regret it to this day, as she has passed away, and made perfect mittens for all 4 of us kids, with long cuffs that clung to our wrists and when hand was finished, she would set in the thumb, so they were a perfect fit. We always got to choose the colors for our own mittens as well, I have a pair left – never use them, just cherish and remember the quiet evenings together. My favorite gift to make are stuffed, felt Christmas ornaments, especially white doves of Peace, each carrying an embroider branch to symbolize Peace in its orange beak; tail feathers and wings enhanced with embroidery as well. There are many Christmas motifs, of course, but the simple, white Peace Dove has always been my favorite. Other well-liked motifs are usually inspired by nature – stars, trees and snowflakes. Now that my Aunt – who lives clear across the country in California, but was born and raised in Maine, and my best friend have shown ( and in my aunt’s case, reworked an entire quilt my grandmother had made for me for HS graduation but never given to me, and even added a pillow sham made of same material as the quilt backing!) and Alfionas’s art quilt hangings, I’m now inspired to make my felt ornaments with the added touch of quilting.

  61. Something for a friend’s pet. [i.e. dog bandanas, or pet collar covers] Pet owners appreciate something for their furry friend – almost more than for themselves!

  62. Infinity scarves. Take so little time but really make beautiful presents since they
    Can be either quiet or lively depending on your fabric. Have used for occasions
    Like 70th birthdays, baby showers- momma needs something for herself,
    Even raffle baskets!!!

  63. These colors are wonderful! I would like to make a journal cover for my granddaughter. She loves these colors. Then I would have to make one for myself, of course!!

  64. My easiest handmade fabric gift is a set of colorful table napkins made from fat quarters or yardage. But I more often make intricate folded-fabric hot pads, or quilt-like ornaments, or baby clutchballs, none of which are quick and easy, but they are then full of love.

  65. My year long project for family birthdays was to make each a fabric card. These fat quarters are just the right size to make the card and envelope! My family enjoyed them greatly! I like to make as many of the gifts I give that I can. Thank you Vickie, for having this Fat Quarter Giveaway!

  66. My go to gift project is an eyeglass case with an attached bookmark that I learned to make from a blog post on the web. Real quick and easy and a great use for scraps as well.

  67. I don’t really have a go to project….it’s different depending on the person. Right now I’m working on embroidered button hair ties for Christmas gifts from an interweave book! My daughter’s going through a rough patch and would love a quilt made of these pinks.

  68. I like to have a collection of quilt blocks on hand. They can be turned into quilts of any size, bags, pot holders or any number of other projects. The stack came in handy last year when, on the weekend after Thanksgiving, my husband asked if I could make a full bed sized quilt for a good friend of his by Christmas. I was very thankful that I had a good sized pile of pinwheel blocks made up.

  69. I pick up plaid homespun tea towels whenever they are on sale. When I have a down time that I am not in a big project, I get them out and match them up with orphan blocks and scraps that match the plaids. I have used strips of leftover prairie points, bindings, and bits of unneeded embroidery as well. I always have a stack of finished towels on hand for that last minute gift! Velda Becker

  70. For years I have made first aid bags for high school graduates to take to college. They’re just a simple drawstring bag made of heavy duty ticking with a red cross appliqued on the front. Fill it with bandaids, pain relievers and Pepto Bismol, or something similar. I get as many thanks from the mothers as the grads!

  71. I try to match the gift to the person, but I like making lap quilts. I’m currently working on 2 Quilts of Valor for some deserving service members. Not all of them want a quilt in red/white/blue, so I’m sure there is a soldier who’d love something in pink!

  72. Depending on the occasion and, if I am honest, how much procrastinating I did 😉 I turn to zipper pouch, key fob, throw pillow, or lap quilt. I can almost always find all the supplies for any of these in my stash, except time!

  73. I like to have a collection of quilt squares on hand. They can be made into any number of projects from quilts of all sizes, pot holders, wall hangings, bags, etc… The pile came in handy this past year when, on the weekend after Thanksgiving, my husband asked me if I could make a double bed sized quilt for a very good friend of his for Christmas.

  74. My mother in law and I are planning on creating a pink/white quilt for my new niece that is expected in August. These fat quarters would be perfect for the top!!

  75. I make several different things for gifts, tote bags, candle mats, table runners, mug rugs, and gift bags. These colors would be lovely to work with!

  76. I like to have a stack of quilt blocks on hand to make anything from quilts of all sizes, pot holders, bags, etc… That stack came in handy last year when, on the weekend after Thanksgiving, my husband asked if I could make a double bed sized quilt for a good friend of his for Christmas. I apologize if this shows up more than once. I have been fighting with the computer. I hit add comment and the computer looses connection. Oh well.

  77. I make loads of baby quilts for gifts, as well as adult sized cuddle quilts. Those fabrics are wonderful — I’d probably make myself a quilt, as I haven’t made one for me yet!

  78. These gorgeous fabrics would make an absolutely charming baby quilt!! One of the girls in my office is expecting her first baby — it’s a girl — and I am pondering over quilt patterns and fabrics! These fabulous fat quarters would be a tremendous help! Thank you so much!

  79. My go-to gift is a zippered wristlet to carry a cell phone, keys, & lipstick. I have a pattern for making a divided basket that I am looking forward to trying which would be pretty in pink. Thanks for the opportunity!

  80. I work on art quilts and with a group that makes Quilts for Kids for our Children’s Hospital. This would be a great addition to our fabrics for the kids quilts. Love all that pink. My mom made me a pink and white quilt hawaiian style many years ago and I love it!

  81. I haven’t started Quilting yet, getting my supplies and patterns together. I like everything to be in place before I start something, so this is my new hobby I would like to learn and do. I getting lots of ideas and from QultingDaily. Thanks.

  82. I love to give totes as a quick gift and I am experimenting with miniature colorful, fun, wall quiltlets for my friends’ work cubicles or as a house guest gift. This is a way to try out a new idea and at the same time let my friends know I care for them.

  83. I’ve never made a quilt and actually can’t think where my interest in quilting comes from, since none of my family are quilters either. A small quilted tote bag or a zipper pouch makes a great gift, especially if filled with supplies or books on quilting. That said, I’d love to win this bundle of fabric… such possibilities here!

  84. My quilting projects focus on making quilts, toys, and clothing for children. Children’s projects are often easier to carry around, and faster to complete.

  86. I love to make totes as a gift and I am experimenting with quiltlets. This gives me a chance to try out a new technique or practice something. Since they are small they can go lots of places in an office cubicle or work space. They work as house guest gifts too. It is a way to let people know I care about them.

  87. I love to applique, so I make appliqued dishtowels and potholders. My grandchildren love the special pillow cases that I make just for them with their favorite fabrics. I also make totes for friends that can be used to carry lunches to work.

  89. My go-to would depend on who it’s going to!
    For young people, it’s covers for their electronic gadgets; for new mums, a set of bibs; for newly-weds or house parties, a set of placemats or potholders or both; for anyone in our cold climate, a lap quilt.

  90. This fabric collection reminds me of Valentine’s Day – I could easily see some very cute quilted hearts, table runners and even a flag made out of this. I like small projects as you can see ! Thanks for all the great information and giveaways like these!

  92. Tote bags are my go to project – as it happens my only Granddaughter is graduating this spring and her favorite color is Pink so this bundle would be ideal for making her a new tote!

  93. My daughter is expecting a baby girl in July and I’d love to use the pinks for a quilt for her. My small projects tend to be useful items, like coasters & placemats.

  94. I love to make “mug rugs” for friends. These are any small bit of quilt that I finish off in small square or rectangle and embellish on the side with French roses or yo yos or any thing else that interests me. I got the idea from one of my guild members who made British flag valentine mug rugs. I use it every day at work. I plan to make red and white striped rugs with a blue star yo yo on the corner for our group in July. These little projects give you a chance to go crazy with scraps and new creative designs. Plus they fit inside a birthday card for friends that are not nearby. Go romantic – go wild – go political during election years. Have fun!!!!

    Thank you.

  99. I’d love this great package …. wall quilts are my favourite and I can see these used in a redwork quilt and a valentines quilt or even a scrappy quilt or all three lol

  100. I stitch coordinating fat quarters together to make unique pillowcases. They are loved by those who receive them…I make one for every person who comes to stay with me!

  101. I make lots of different gifts, such as crossbody bags, table toppers, stuffed toys, etc. Two of my neighbors are expecting babies, so I would probably use these beautiful fabrics to make baby gifts. Thank you for offering this opportunity.

  102. I have always loved the floral pinks and reds – largely influenced by my mothers emotional connection to her mother’s set of red and pink floral appliqué quilt blocks. These hand stitched un-quilted blocks were all I knew of my grandmother’s as she died long before I was born. When I looked at the current Moda collection I immediately regressed to the times when Mother recalled the stories of her early childhood while my grandmother was still alive. Any project that artfully applies the use of shades of pinks and reds to evoke the spectrum of beauty found in nature can’t help but warm one’s heart. There is a reason that valentine hearts are shades of red. Enjoy!

  103. Making pillowcases, coasters, and napkins are great quick projects that can be personalized or seasonal. Have given so many of these away as gifts. Also, checkbook covers and credit card holders are great little projects. Love the fabric stack this Friday! 🙂

  104. I’ve been making mug rugs for myself and gifts since learning about them for the Houston International Quilt Show. They are great for using small amounts of fabrics, so I make several after each quilt. I love to use them for mini-placemats or hot pads when eating out of bowls.

  105. I’m afraid I haven’t been sewing long enough to have a favorite gift, but The first quilt I made two years ago for the granddaughter I finally got after two grandsons was definitely pink! I’d love to make more with that pink stash!

  106. Brand new to quilting, having made blocks mostly. I would like to make a set placemats to gift to my best friend going through tough times and pink is her favorite color!

  107. I make silly dolls, usually animals (i am partial to bunnies). The fabric can be skin, clothes, hair, etc. These little creations really make me happy!

  108. My favorite handmade gifts include fabric flower pins, cards with paper and fabric,
    and a cloth gift bag to put the gift in. Thank you for opportunity to win these pretty pink fabrics!

  109. “surrounded by love” is a wonderful name for the bundle! I love the shades, and cant see the quilt I’d love to create in my mind already!

  111. I love mini quilts to lay on a table or use as a mug rug or sometimes under a pretty plant or vase of flowers. Even if the blocks are a little complicated 12″ by 15 ” or smaller is a quick

  112. I plan to make tote bags for Christmas. These pretty pinks would be just perfect for that project. Thanks for the chance to win.

  113. Eatable and tickled pink! Pretty and sweet pink – inspires me to surround myself with my passion from within to quilt with unconditional love and harmony!

  114. Pink is my color….I love it. I’d do a quilt for myself as I’ve made ones for each member of my family and still haven’t made one for me!

  115. My favorite is the Jewelry Tote pattern from the 2009/10 issue of Quilting Arts Gifts. I make many at one time, so I usually have a supply on hand to give away. I just received a thank you note from a friend who took hers on a trip to New Zealand, and is still using it at home. Hers is pink and white polka dots, but many kinds of fabrics can be used; sweet and delicate, bold and bright, Asian, Australian, etc. I generally make a tissue case to go with each one as well.

  116. My go to projects are: for babies and toddlers, small quilts (I usually make a small stuffed animal to go with the quiltie) for adults I make memory quilts with personalized features (their pet, fav thing to do, etc).

    I would love to win this PINK STACK!!!! I would make the most adorable quilt with it!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

I just received a thank you note from a friend who took hers on a trip to New Zealand, and is still using it at home. Hers is pink and white polka dots, but many kinds of fabrics can be used; sweet and delicate, bold and bright, Asian, Australian, etc. I generally make a tissue case to go with each one as well.

  119. I love to make little zip top purses with appliquéd sun bonnet sue or flowers in flowerpots. They make lovely small birthday gifts for sewing friends.

  120. Right now I’m making microwave potholders — they look like small fabric bowls and make taking your hot food out of the microwave easier. These have been great gifts for my friends who are ill or recovering from surgery, the folks I know who are vision impaired, and those in our family with small children.

  121. I have baggies with small handmade projects ready to go so when I go camping I can work on them outdoors. It is light enough in Alaska to work at night outside.

  123. I love lap quilts, table runners, small totes and purses, pin cushions and other small gift items. Scraps are loved for applique projects.

  124. One gift I make for friends that is a really big hit is a “bowl buddy”, a shaped potholder made especially to use when microwaving bowls of food. I got the idea from Sue Hausemann during a live seminar I had the privilege of attending, and I was able to find easy directions for this easy gift on the web. The pretty pink collection would made great “bowl buddies” for my gal friends!

  125. Lately I’ve been making screen tote bags, both for gifts and for raffle items in our fundraising efforts for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and our workplace United Way campaign. No two are exactly alike and everybody loves them!

  126. I like to make and give small zipper pouches. Every gal uses these in her purse or computer bag to organize essentials. I often add a flat tab on the side to attach a key ring or spring clip.

  127. Hi,

    Quick gifts are often table-toppers, small quilts for doors or lap quilts if time is available. These usually reflect the current season or holiday. These luscious
    pinks/reds would be great for an expected baby girl. thank you for this
    opportunity

  128. I could make a lap quilt for my mother-in-law. She could really use something warm to wrap around her since she is 92 yrs. old. She would really be surprised since she loves the color pink, and my husband just painted her bedroom Sweetpea pink.

  130. I Love Surrounded by Love stuff. Love heart fabrics, i can do another quilt giveaway, if people donate to my heart defect research fund. or bags/totes.

  131. Favorite go to gift is placemats. Can be seasonal or holiday themed. Easy designs or complicated all turn out great. The projects do not take a lot of fabric or time. Can be made whenever you have an extra hour. Stacked in closet and available when needed.

  134. What a beautiful fabric bundle! My favorite go-to project for an easy gift is a seasonal table runner. They are quick to make and always appreciated. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

  135. What a gorgeous stack of fat quarters! For quick gifts I love to make pincushions, small card “wallets”, zipper bags, even small totes. Thanks for the opportunity to win the beautiful pinks.

  136. I really like these pinks in the fat quarter give away. They remind me of the dresses I used to make for my daughters when they were little.

  137. Potholders! I can have fun playing with colors, patterns and textures without a great deal of commitment. And creating potholders allows me to use up scraps while making a quick, pretty and practical gifts!

  139. Not sure I have a specific go to gift as I try to make each gift in accordance to the person I’m giving to. I have done 2 king size quilts, and about 4 couch throws for gifts. I do so love pink though and would use these to make a new quilt for my own bed as I haven’t made one for myself yet.

  140. Love make the shopping bags, and giving them for gifts. It makes me feel like I am doing some good for the environment and what fun a cute bag in your hand.

  142. My favorite project is a simple charm square quilt. I love the pattern by Susan Fuquay from American Quilt Retailers. It is so great you cut a stack into 2×5 & 3×5 then mix up and sew back together. Next, cut them again going the opposite direction and mix and sew. When you get done you join it and have an amazing quilt with no seams to match other than where the rows join.

  143. I think my favorite go-to quilting project would be a 6″block lap quilt. It’s totally easy, fast, and can be made with any kind of stash left-overs.

  144. I like reading all the ideas for quick gifts. My go to is a zippered coin purse that had a gift card inside. A little fabric, a little time and it’s unique.
    My grand-daughter loves pink and has been asking for a quilt for her big bed.

  145. The colours are fantastic. I am not used to these colours as not a typical girly girly but I have a new baby girl granddaughter and would use these to make a me memory quilt with idea of building a connection as she is in Ireland and we are in canada. Thanks

  146. I enjoy creating ‘on the fly’ whenever someone I know is expecting a baby……bibs, toy bags, even small floor mats for the before-crawling stage. I also make quick lap quilts for a charity effort in my community.

  147. My niece Kate graduates from high school this year…she has always been a pink person. We surprised her with a starter sewing machine for her 12th birthday and she has been stitching ever since. I would make a lap quilt for her out of these lovely fabrics for her dorm room at college this September!

  148. I love to make different sizes of tote bags, zippered small bags and snap purses as gifts. I try to have some on hand for gifts and usually put a little gift inside.

  150. One of my favorite gifts to make (and one for me from time to time) are small sachets for closets, drawers, boots, etc. I put lavender from my garden in them, and so far it seems to be a big hit with everyone.

    Thank You for all the great inspirations and ideas from other readers too.

  151. “Sugar and Spice and everything nice” . I can hear my Grandmother’s voice with her New Zealand accent. I was the 1st grand child and the 1st girl, this was her way of making me feel special. I would use your free fabric to continue to make children’a quilts for not only expectant mothers but also for my quilting guilds workshops, “Comfort Quilts” donated to emergency response organizations, child services, and hospitals within the local Western Sierra communities.

  152. What a generous giveaway. My got to project for a gift is usually something for the kitchen, Generally baked potato bags, hanging towels or applique towels, potholders, table runners, etc. Also, for kids, I like to give the tiered pillowcases with all the pretty fabrics we have now to choose from –lynn

  153. Ooooo…I would love to make a log cabin throw with that, or applique some hearts. I have 5 daughters, so every bit would be used up. Sweet fabrics.

  154. I am working with a group of quilters that during the summer each one of us tries a new technique and/or use a color that we do not use frequently (in my case not at all). This would be great for me because a little birdy told me I’m having a new grand daughter in a few months.

  155. Whether for new bride or new mom, I make a quick and easy recipe book and advice quotes from their closest friends and family. Its, simple, easy and personal. I prefer handstitch but a machine works just as well.

  156. For mothers to be I make travel size changing pads with pockets for wipes and diapers. It folds up and will fit in your purse nicely .

  157. What a beautiful collection! Anyone would be “tickled pink” with this fabulous fabric.
    My quick go to gifts are pillowcases, totes and toys. I try to use fabrics to create gifts that will delight the recipient.

  159. for a quick projects I do reversible messenger bags, quillows, or table runners.
    Pretty in pink fat quarters would be great for the messenger bags or Heart table runners.

  160. “Surrounded by Love”…that’s the feeling I would hope to give my friends, family, & charity recipients w/handmade gifts of pillowcases, bags, & doll clothes! And I would love to be “surrounded by pink” as I transform your beautiful fat quarters into items that are both practical & charming. Thank you!!

  161. Hi I love patchwork and quilting for more than 20 years, I owned Austria´s first professional longarm quilting service ten years ago, I still am teaching all kind of piecing and quilting. Now I am retired but still live my passion for textiles. As a littel girl I loved pink and still do. My mom wa able to tell which drawing was mine, because I always used PINK

  162. I love Moda fabrics! And of course you cannot have too much pink.

    I use orphan blocks for my go to gift projects. These are easily turned into gifts such as a small wall hanging, wine bottle koozie, bread basket liner, hot pads, pin pillow, etc.
