Modern Patchwork Fabric Giveaway

Oh my! We got so busy with our publications and videos we almost forgot about the giveaway. Here are the winners: jane.grau and AnnC@24.

Congratulations! Contact us and we will send you your fabric.

One of the most fun aspects of working on Modern Patchwork magazine is poring over all the contemporary fabric collections we review. Collections are released throughout the year, but spring is an especially inspiring time to shop for new fabrics.

"Shelburne Falls" designed by
Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit

This spring, we noticed a preponderance of orange-and-blue combinations. In prints, the 1950s-'60s kitchen has inspired many fabric designers, with starburst clocks, angular coffee makers, and abstract shapes reminscent of hand stamping used as motifs.

Chickens are still popular, but llamas have also come on the scene. Typography, numerals, and graphic elements with letters and numbers on them (like tickets and labels) make prints interesting to look at.

Most of these fabrics could stand on their own as frame-able art. But they are meant to be cut and stitched into modern quilts and patchwork projects like the ones in the pages of Modern Patchwork Spring 2013.

To get you started, we're giving away two packages of fabric we reviewed in Modern Patchwork: A roll of "Shelburne Falls" designed by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit and a stack of "Modern Home" from Monaluna.

Just leave a comment saying what you might do with these fabrics and we'll randomly choose two winners on Monday, April 22, 2013.

Also, be sure to submit your original project ideas for Modern Patchwork Winter 2013. The deadline is May 13! Get all the details on our Submissions page.

  1. I would LOVE to get these for my mom, who is an avid quilter and would probably whip up something adorable for her granddaughter! These fabrics are SO fab!

  2. I’d make a table runner or placemats and napkins for my daughter’s first place—she love retro-ish fabrics and colors, these would go perfectly in her apartment!

  3. O.M.G! Since my daughters are llama freaks (started when my now 26 year old first attended leadership camp in 6th grade and nicknamed their dorm the llama dorm, the name stuck, and her sisters followed suit) they will LOVE receiving gifts made with the llama fabric – quilts, purses, pillow cases… I’m SURE they will have many requests!! I can’t wait to find that fabric in my local store or online

  4. I would love to have these fabrics. I will be teaching young girls from our church to sew this summer.. They are so excited and I would love to have them using “new” fabrics. These girls are only 6-12 years old and work on mission projects every month. I will be teaching them things to keep for themselves and things they can make for the annual bazaar which funds many of their projects. I am so pleased they have the desire to learn to sew…they are a GREAT bunch of young girls!

  5. I would liketo make a quilt for the Make-a-Wish kids. Our quilt group’s project for the year is to make quilts for them & these would be awesome fabrics for that.

  6. I would use the Modern Home fabrics to create a snow ball quilt top. Such pretty colors! I’d use the Shelburne Falls roll of fabrics to do a chevron quilt top. Love the bright colors!

  7. I would love to win these to make neck pillows for the residents in my mother in law’s nursing home. It’s so sad to walk in and see these elderly people with their heads hanging down or to the side and have nothing to rest their heads on . They could also use some lap quilts and side bags to hold their things:)

  9. Hi

    I would love to use these fabrics in a raffle quilt to support MS. My school is walking in support of a colleague and these fabrics are so much fun. Plus the orange is an asset since it is the color in support of MS. Thanks!

  10. In October I am going to be a first time grandmother. The Modern Home fabrics fit perfectly with the ideas my son and daughter-in-law have for the nursery–they have asked me to make the baby quilt and sew all the accompanying pieces for the nursery. This set would be perfect–would love to have it as an extra special something for my first grand baby.

  11. ok…those llamas are the cutest things i’ve seen in awhile!! i think those fabrics would make some great purses for the summer…or pillows….or a quilt ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I have just started quilting and would love some colorful fabrics to use. So far I have only been able to afford to buy material from resale shops and remnant bins.

  13. Can always you more bundles. Thanks for letting me comment.
    Can make oven mitts for upcoming wedding showers. I have three of them in the next two months in addition to the weddings in May and June. A bundle would help me succeed in making them gifts. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. We have 10 grandchildren, and I’ve only made quilts for 3 of them so far. I can’t get nice fabric where I live, so it would be great to have some wonderful fabric for more quilts. I also do machine embroidery, so I could use fabric for embroidery projects.

  15. Modern Home would make a adorable baby quilt, Shelborn Falls would make a lovely lap quilt. I would probably make either and donate to Painted Turtle Camp, they need so many for the ill children they proved a week of camp for.

  16. I’m making quilts to give away right now. My first thought is a wonky start quilt from either set of fabric. Probably the next two ‘give away’ quilts I make will go to West, Texas for relief efforts. I grew up in Waco and played many wonderful and festive weekends away in West. I’m sad for the community and too far away to do anything other than send quilts, my answer for all pain in the world.

  17. We have 10 grandchildren, and I have made quilts for three of them so far. I can’t get nice fabric where I live, so it would be great to have this. I also do machine embroidery, so I could use some fabric for that too.

  18. I’m not sure what I’d make but I love making quilts and table covers so that’s probably what I’d use this fabric for should I win. Hope it’s me. Thanks.

  19. Wow… so many things could be done with this material…. tote bags/purses, kids quilts, lap quilts… I would LOVE to win this material! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  20. Shelburne Falls = crying out to be aprons, napkins, summer scarfs, a quilt. ; Modern Home = summer lantern covers (electric candles inside)

  21. Llamas and graphic elements! Love them. I would use them with my Ceramics and Crafts students – I have a high school class and we make our own sketchbooks every year and they would love these fabrics for the covers!

  22. I already have the llama fabric for curtains, so I’d make a lap quilt to go with it! That would make my front room so bright and cheerful I might never leave!

  23. I LOVE Llama Love. I would make some cute tiered ruffled dresses for my 5 grand daughters with it and co ordinating prints. Just love these Modern Home fabrics. It would be fun to make different sized bags with pockets done in different prints. From small cosmetic bags to large totes.

  24. My daughter starts her first job after college graduation and is moving into an apartment. I would use Modern Home since these are her decorating colors and make some items for her kitchen or dining room.

  25. Really fun fabric! I think the bundle from Modern Home would make a delightful baby quilt. The Shelburne Falls bundle has lots of possibilities: maybe a kaleidoscope block. Sure would like to try them!

  26. Really fun fabric! I think the bundle from Modern Home would make a delightful baby quilt. The Shelburne Falls bundle has lots of possibilities: maybe a kaleidoscope block. Sure would like to try them!

  27. So many possibilities. I would use the llama fabric in the “I Spy”quilt I am making for my granddaughter, Nellie. The rest I would make a little sundress or a pillowcase for her.

  28. Different things with the two styles – Shelburne Falls I’d use with some tone on tones – I think some action with half square triangles or flying geese. I love the prints in Modern Home – a simple Square in a Square would show off the llamas!

  29. If I were to have the Modern Home with the llamas, I would make my quilt for my Mom. She used to travel to Peru to teach English to a women’s collective called Project Mujer which taught women to bargain for better prices and to make Alpaca sweaters, hat, mittens and other hand made goods in larger sizes for the American market. I love these modern quilt fabrics.

  30. Roses are red, violets are blue, if I had this beautiful, modern fabric I would make a thing or two!!! Seriously I love these new designs and would really love making a modern quilt with it. Thanks for reading, Claudia

  31. Kristine thank you for this opportunity
    I will be introducing quilting to inner city elementary school children is June and July. What a wonderful opportunity to inspire and motivate creative young mines, sharing beautiful fabrics thank you so much. Although I am very much an amateur quilter I enjoyed the excitement of the children as they learn to create things with your own hands. They will also learn how to re-purpose garments that are no longer warn
    Good luck everyone!

  32. I’ve got a quilt in mind! All sorts of neat material that just begged to be looked at and fond! Kind of a story book I spy, lay in the summer grass quilt! Sounds perfect!

  33. I would do another Quilt Art project. It would only be my second piece but I have been putting some ideas together and am anxious to give another try at it.

  34. Ooo I love the Llamas! This might likely go to beautifying my sewing room. In other words…for me! I need a couple of sewing machine covers and some extra fabric bowls to store things in – Altho I love the llamas enough I might make a cute jumper for my youngest granddaugter too. I am awaiting my printed edition of Modern Patchwork as I write this. Thank-you!

  35. I love love LOVE both collections!

    With the Shelburne Falls fabrics I think I would do a small lone star throw. And with the Modern Home I would make placemats and napkin rings for my new dining table.

  36. I am teaching my two great-granddaughters (one is 6 and the other 7) to sew, and these fabrics would be so colorful to inspire them. Their first project was a sun dress and they were so proud they wore them to school. Now wouldn’t it be fun to progress to mini quilts to practice on? Never have enough colorful stash for the modern new comers at the sewing machine! Good luck to all the participants!

  37. I would make four wall hangings….. each one featuring a different type of llama (Chilean, Bolivian, Classic, Argentinian) and each panel complete with other items of interest from the countries from which each llama originated………..

  38. With Shelburne Falls I’d make some new kitchen accessories: placemats, potholders, and a new centerpiece. With Modern Home, sewing room accessories: sewing machine cover, thread catcher, pincushions, and some wall art!

  39. Have a new grand-daughter who received every baby quilt that I had made. Would love some new fabric to be able to start all over from the next one. Quilting keeps me moving,, while having Fibromaygia tries to keep me from doing just that. Appreciate your give aways!!

  40. I just finished an “Urban Cabin” quilt and have several more patterns in mind for the modern quilts that currently intrigue me. I also learned how to make a modern block using striped fabrics, so these would be perfect for both projects.

  41. A group of friends are making cot quilts to donate to comforts for children in Eugene, Or. The kids we are sewing for right now are teens and pre-teens and would love these fabrics.

  42. Pick me pleases i could use stop the free dangerous i can get I’m making quilts got single moms in shelters for there children could use some help thanks for this opportunity

  43. Pick me pleases i could use stop the free dangerous i can get I’m making quilts got single moms in shelters for there children could use some help thanks for this opportunity

  44. My brilliant 5yo niece and nephew love all kinds of art. I’ve been conducting a special weekly “creativity time” with them for about three years now and they absolutely love it! Sometimes Iโ€™ll introduce them to new materials or techniques and prompt them with special projects (for birthday gifts, holiday decorations, etc.) and sometimes theyโ€™ll make whatever kind of art they want given the materials we have on hand. They have shown an interest in sewing with a real sewing machine and would definitely put a fabric stash like this to good use!

  45. I’m new at Quilting. Teaching myself with the help of the Internet and YouTube . I’ve done a few quilts, started a new one this evening. I would like to make a hand bag for myself. I’ve been getting some ideas online. Winning the fabric would be nice, I’m sure it will make a nice bag.

  46. I need this fabric!!!!! I run a craft group, do patchwork and am making hospital flowers, could do with some new fabric for this. I love the colours and designs. Oh and I have a vintage wedding to go to and want to make a 40s inspired present for the happy couple, wanna help me? Pretty please???? xx

  47. I’m trying to build my stash of good quality fabrics. I want to make quilts for the children and women at our local abused women’s shelter and a local nursing home. I’m practicing with donated scrap fabric, but most of it is part polyester. 100% cotton makes a much nicer quilt and is easier to cut and sew. So thanks for this opportunity to win!

  48. These fabrics are sew lovely! I am a sewist and a quilter and I know I will make good use of every inch of the fabric. I love making my quilt and then using every last piece in another scrap quilt along with scraps from previous projects and quilts. I donate many quilts to charity and Wounded Warriors. Please pick me!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. OOooOOooOOOo! Both DS Shelburne Falls and Modern Home Monaluna look so yummy! I would stitch them up into the new Steam Punk pattern I just ordered last week. Thanks for the chance to win! Nadine

  50. Finally joined our local quilt guild and I’m amazed at the knowledge that is shared and what I’ve learned. The most important is: you can never have to much fabric.

  51. That is a pack of fun, for sure! I think I would sew some 4″ squares together and sew them into a tote bag. A potholder for my kitchen and I’d then start piecing the rest into a quilt. I adore these fabrics-the colors and patterns both!

  52. Beautiful Spring colors!! I need SPRING!!!!! Prom tonight and there is still snow on the ground and cold!!! Girls in their beautiful dresses and winter coats???? Bring on the Spring!!!! Be it fabric or weather, lol!!!!!

  53. I teach 1st-6th graders to sew at church and we make simple projects like pillows & pillowcases. I also lead a group of women that make “prayer quilts” for the shut-ins & seriously ill. They are tied quilts that the people from church pray over and tie a knot for each prayer. This summer I will be teaching a sewing class on a mission trip to an Indian reservation in New Mexico. I would love to use these fabrics in all of these endeavors. Thanks for this opportunity!

  55. If I were to win the patchwork material, I’d make it to fit on my hope chest or as a blanket for my hubby and I to snuggle under to watch tv, with the snowflakes flying outside. When the time came, I would pass it on to one of our cousins in the family, or to the newborn in the family, Vincent. I would hope that it would become a cherished family heirloom, like my grandmother’s quilts are now.

  56. I would make purses and bags. I have two favorite patterns from the Quilting Daily TV program. I love Pokey. I am especially drawn to the Shelburne Falls fabrics.

  57. I don’t usually sign up for free fabric since my stash is getting out of hand, but I LOVE that llama fabric. If I win that, I have a quilt in mind for my niece.

  58. If I were to win either of these packages of fabric, I would make my first “modern” quilt. I have noticed them in books and magazines but was unsure of which fabrics to use. If I win, that decision is already made!

  59. lyn drage I live in a small country town in western australia and each year we have a festival called AIRING OF THE QUILTS.We have a quilt competition and the town streets are hung with the locals quilts to air.Last year one of the quilts that won was a modern quilt design similar to ones in your magazine MODERN QUILTS.The judges were very impessed as they thought thats the direction of the new quilts.If my name is drawn out of the barrel I will donate the faric to the commitee of the airing of the quilts. I will then send some photos of the day and show you what the girls have made as well. Cheers and good luck everyone . regards Lyn

  60. Every time I get a new material, I first have to make some new doll dresses for my Great niece. She will always come first with me. See, I’m not just a good Aunt, I’m a Great Aunt. Then, I get into making a quilt and depending on what I have leftover, I may make a table setting and runner and depending on the print in the material, I may make some living room table runners too. I never have enough fabric!

  61. Making a modern tote with 2 young women in my rural area to get them “hooked on quilting/sewing” and spread the passion for a fresh, contemporary approach…..this is how I would use your gift of featured fabrics!

  62. Oh…A little quilt to go along with the book “Llama, llama….” or else add them to my fabric stash so that I can take them out and pet them…

  63. I have just turned 60, bought myself a quilting machine and start my first lesson on Monday. I am being taught how to make a quilted tote bag. If I can sew it properly I will be making more for presents. (They assure me it is simple to make)

  64. I would make zippered project bags. woke up this morning with an idea for a modern quilt using some vintage squares i found at an antique store–how good is that!

  65. My mother, who just passed away last week, didn’t raise llamas, but she raised sheep, and this fabric reminded me of her. I would incorporate this into a commerative wall hanging for her!

  66. These “Shelburne Falls” and “Modern Home” fabrics would be a great foundation to liven up my dull blue and brown-toned bedroom. Orange would be the perfect modern touch to put a spark back into the blue-carpeted space. I’m thinking of a fabulous quilted duvet cover for those cold northern winters, with the windows and walls livened up with accent colors taken from the quilt.

    Please enter me in the draw for these fabulous fabrics.

  67. I would love these fabrics as I am going to make a quilt for my daughter, she loves modern designs and colors and so these would be perfect. I haven’t made a quilt for her before, very remiss of me I know, she recently had a birthday and I didn’t know what to get her so I asked and she said a quilt. Fingers crossed I am lucky. Linda

  68. I love working all the modern and/or contemporary fabrics into a traditional pattern. For example, it brings a fresh perspective when I choose modern fabric patterns and make the same quilt pattern that my grandmother made.

    Thanks, Chris Tolzman

  69. Bags, bags, bags, never enough bags, tablet case, book bag, groceries, craft bag…you get the idea! I love Quilting Arts! Thanks for the inspiration!

  70. Bags, bags, bags, never enough bags, tablet case, book bag, groceries, craft bag…you get the idea! I love Quilting Arts! Thanks for the inspiration!

  71. I love Modern Patchwork. The designs are fresh and inspiring. I would use these to inspire my daughter to get sewing for her apartment, which really needs some updating! I think this could be the project that would change her from “Mom, can you help me shorten this?” to “Thanks, Mom, for teaching me how to sew!”
    Thanks for this opportunity.

  72. Hi!
    I have just discovered a modern quilting Guild in our wonderful prairie city. I am going to a meeting this week and would love to have a gorgeous collection of modern fabrics to create a unique modern quilt. What an opportunity!

  73. WOW! I have recently discovered a modern quilt guild in our beautiful prairie city. I am planning to go to their next meeting! What a wonderful beginning to a new quilting concept – fabrics to create my very first modern quilt!

  74. These are beautiful fabrics! I would make an assortment of things with them, child clothes, purse accents, kitchen “things,” and maybe I would try my first quilt!

  75. I am looking forward to making a couple of quilts for the Quilt of Valor program. This fabric would, indeed, get my creative juices…and the sewing machine…going. Thank you!

  76. With Shelburne Falls, I would love to make a “vintage” style quilt with large patches showcasing the fabrics and with the Modern Home I think I would make a cute wall hanging and accessories for my sewing room. LOVE the latest Modern Patchwork issue – mine arrived yesterday. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  77. I would make some retro/modern pillows for one daughter and placemats for the other! They would love them, and I’d get a lot of pleasure working with these fabrics.

  78. If I received the Modern Home bouquet, I would incorporate it into a quilt for my daughter who is heading off to college this fall to study to be a veterinarian. I am planning a memory quilt with lots of animal prints along with t-shirts from her sport teams. She wants a small hanging and then a coordinating bed quilt for room decorations. The other bundle is calling out for some bold graphic pattern on white background . I have several “new” pinwheel patterns plus a new ruler to cut pinwheels which are calling out for just the right colorful fabric to be put to use.

  79. A baby quilt for my new grandson expected in August would be beautiful with the Modern a home fabric and anything made with Denyse Schmidt would be beautiful!

  80. There are so many great modern fabrics to choose from — I can see why checking them out is a great part of the job! I love to make lap quilts to give as gifts, so that’s what I would like to do with these fabrics should I be lucky enough to win. I especially like the Modern Home fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

  81. I’d make a quilt for my kid’s new home or a quilt for my grandchild, then I’d use the scraps for a charity quilt for a local NICU. Love the colors!

  82. I would love these collections because I can’t find good cotton fabric living in Mexico. I have used almost all of my stash and have combed the fabric stores in Guadalajara but can find the quality that I had in the US.

  83. I could use some more material for my Quilts of Valor and I think the Shelburne Falls has several I could incorporate. Modern Home looks like a lot of PURSES! Just started making some and need more fabric to make for my friends as Christmas presents. Never too early to start.

  84. I almost never know what my plans are for fabric until I’ve stared at it, fondled it, and had a few daydreams about its potential. These are both fabulous collections.

  85. Love those llamas! I would make a fun and funky modern baby quilt with the “Modern Home” fabric bundle. This fabric is SO different from what is available locally, so the bundle would blast me out of quilting doldrums.

  86. Love the Llamas! I think I would make a fun kids quilt with this bundle. And with the Shelburne Falls fabric, there are a couple of BOM quilts I’ve been looking at doing. It would be fun to use these fabrics for one of them

  87. Not sure if you’d count us in the UK in your give-away, but here’s what I’d do with it: A child’s quilt, crazy patchwork, using the animals as a focal point for each crazy square! Fun tied together with Llamas?!

  88. I have always loved modern design and fabrics. (I’m not a flowery sort of gal.) I’ve been wanting to try one of the modern quit designs I’ve been seeing lately. Looks like it would be a super fun project!

  89. I have been making placemats, table toppers, and self binding table runners.
    I have been making the placemats from Joyce Lawrence Cambron—A New Spin on Curved Piecing….I like the scalloped placemat.

  90. What wonderful fabric! I would definitely make a quilt. Lots of white space interrupted by bursts of the joyful colors and prints in these collections. I’ve never made a “modern” quilt but the creations I’m seeing on the internet are growing on me. I want to try one! Thanks for the giveaway.

  91. I’m very inspired to try the modern patchwork. I love the clean lines on the neutral background and improvisational piecing. For my first project (using the sample fabrics) I would make a lap quilt for a friend just diagnosed with cancer.

  92. My friend recently started a project making lap quilts for women undergoing chemo at the local cancer hospital. I would use the fabric to make a happy quilt for her project.

  93. I think I would use these fabrics for the tote bags I make…. or maybe the wall hangings….or maybe something for the next great grandchild…. or maybe…………….

  94. These fabrics would be perfect for my new favorite block – Disappearing Four Patch. Need to make a quilt for my Daughter-in-Law, as everyone else in the family already has a quilt.

  95. Both lines are cute – I’d definitely want to use them in something I’d see and use daily. I think I’d use the Denyse Schmidt fabric in a quilt; the Modern Home…I’m not sure, maybe some patchwork pillowcases for the couch, or bags of some kind. Thanks for the chance to win!

  96. I would do some simple 4 or nine patch quilts for either kids or elderly in hospital/nursing home. They are bright colorful and bring a simple pattern to life.

  97. I’d be beyond thrilled to be the lucky winner of this awesome fabric! My granddaughter would absolutely love having a new quilt featuring them. Thanks a bunch for the chance to win! โ˜บ

  98. I think either one of these collections would make great handbags of various sizes.
    These aren’t my usual choices, so it would be fun to try.
    Kathryn

  99. REALLY love Modern Home! I would make one of my mini quilts (40 inches or smaller) – I’m a Won Block Wonder, so I hope I WON! Have been laid off my 20 year job for 2 1/2 years. Have almost used up all my SCRAP fabric and THREAD.

  101. Since it has been a while since I did any serious quilting or sewing projects due to family issues it would be a much appreciated fresh look and attitude. After looking at your stash for a long time it’s hard to get inspired so I’ve been donating older parts of my collection to other sewers.

  102. After I spread it out and admired it, I would probably use Shelburne Falls for a patchwork quilt and Modern Home as pocket embellishments for the aprons I am making my sisters for Christmas.

  104. I love scrappy style quilts because the abundance of fabric prints never gets tiring to look at. With each viewing you might see something new. So I’d make a scrappy quilt of my own design.

  105. What great fabrics!!! I would make a throw quilt to give to one of the students that are participating in the FFA program at our local High School just down the road from us. They have a beautiful Llama guarding the sheep that are being raised by the kids that patrols the fields they are in I pass whenever I venture into town.
    Wonderful…
    Nancy

  106. I would make my first quilting project, a pillow for the seat of the chair I sit in. I am home bound and spend a lot of time in my chair. My bottom could use a new pillow!!

  107. The fabrics are exciting & having a plan now & when one sees them might dictate another tack; but any project will surly be enhanced by the vibrant color combinations. A patch work (anything) combined with solids would be a smashing combination. Thanks for the opportunity.

  108. I have been wanting to make a quilted collage of kitties, I have many designs and templates, all ready to be used, I just need the fabric. Once finished, the quilted kitty collage will be framed and hung in my living room. Added into this collage will be felted fur collected from 3 of my now deceased babies. Thank You for this opportunity, Nikki Roeder

  109. Wow, I really love the fabrics. I have really been into making bags lately, so that is what I would use the fabric assortment for if I were to be lucky enough to win the giveaway.
    Marilyn

  110. Ahhhh, so many possibilities! Love the llamas, they would have to become a wall hanging. The shelburne collection looks like a ribbon quilt, some borders, throw pillows, etc.

  111. I don’t know! I have to see it, feel it… throw swatches around and get my muse-on. Would probably be a paper piecing project. Have been playing with that in hard to work with fabrics and am in LOVE with it.

  112. I would love to make the llama fabric from Monaluna into a quilted bag for my knitting. The other fabrics look perfect for some baby quilts I want to make. Love!

  113. Would love some of these for my stash, but we need more modern fabrics in the church quilt group stash where we make quilts for members and for charity.

  114. Just rediscovered MODERN quilts. Love the simplicity but drama. I would love to make a simple strippy quilt with these fabrics.

  116. Just recently taught my niece how to sew a quilt block for charity (Montavilla Quilts of Valor). We had fun & she did a great job! I’m also hoping to teach her a few of the quilt patterns from the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. Either one of your beautiful fabric collections would help widen this circle of giving — giving fabric, giving time, giving talent, giving comfort & hope. THANK YOU!! –Cheri

  117. Hi, what a lovely giveaway! With the Shelburne Falls I would try a scrappy-look quilt and with the Modern Home I think I would try a coins quilt (is that what it’s called? – will have to look it up online!) Thanks tonnes.

  118. With 3 new grandsons under the age of two, I’d make colorful floor quilts for crawling and toddling around, and I know they would enjoy the colors and patterns of these great fabrics.

  119. I just bought this magazine and those two new fabric collections are the two I want!! I see placemats and kitchen items from the magazine projects for my oldest daughter’s kitchen in the future . . .

  120. I am currently unemployed and have begun a home business that includes sewing and batik to help make ends meet. I would like to be able to make totebags out of your retro modern fabrics that I can sell at our community’s upcoming Saturday markets of which I became a member last fall. Depending on the fabrics I would receive, I think I might consider other wearable or housewear items (I like to let the fabric tell me what it should become!) I think folks would really like these fabrics and it would be inspiring to have some new fabrics to inspire my useful creatations.

    thanks for considering me, Jennifer in Oregon

  121. I would use the material for small projects for my grandsons, ages 3 and 4 and granddaughter age 2. Thee Modern Home collection is great looking for boys and the Shelburne Falls collection for both a boy or girl. Thank you.

  122. My granddaughter is turnning three in July and she has this passion and vocabulary well beyondd her age for animals She names a new animal for me each week, but llmas hasn’t come up yet. Since we retired and left Alaska, I don”t have the opportunity to be an integral part of her education, as I was with my two older grandsons. I’d love to be the one to introduce llmas in her vocabulary,as I believe that’s something that she”ll remember we shared together. I know all of us wants to win, but the best of luck (which I call blessings) to each of you.

  123. I love Denyse Schmidt’s work, so I might try an improvisational modern quilt with her fabrics. Monaluna is spectacular too, and I see it in some bright bags with fun trim.

  125. My daughter-in-law is a doctor that my son met when working in South America. My other son climbed in S.A. when he was in college. I would make a quilt and they could figure out which one of them gets the’ llama quilt’.

  126. Just finishing my new “lady cave”–and believe it or not!! I acutually need to rebuild a stash, as I’d gotten out of this venue for about 15 years. Donated all old stash to church quilting society for vet quilts.

  127. The Shelburne Falls fabric would be great for my grandson’s quilt, more masculine than many lines. I love the llamas but am not sure of a project for them yet.

  128. I think with the more exotic animals like the llama, it would be fun to make a baby quilt. I’m new to the modern fabrics and would love to experiment with them. The colors seem to me to be a twist on a pastel. A llama baby quilt would be adorable

  129. Just recently taught my niece how to sew a quilt block for charity (Montavilla Quilts of Valor). We had fun & she did a great job! I’m also hoping to teach her a few of the quilt patterns from the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. Either one of your beautiful fabric collections would help widen this circle of giving — giving fabric, giving time, giving talent, giving comfort & hope. THANK YOU!! –Cheri

  130. My goal is to develop a comfort level with creating and constructing my own designs for modern quilts. I’ve been reading and taking classes and workshops. I would love to have a grouping of fabric at my disposal that would challenge and compliment my efforts.

  131. I am very interest in the “Modern Quilt” area of quilting.I will have two granddaughters in college this fall, and I think they would love it if I would make them lap quilts or maybe pillow cases with this fabric!

  132. My niece, who was married last year, has hinted that she and her husband would like to start a family soon. This fun and colorful fabric would give me the chance to get started on a baby quilt or two!

  133. I love both of the collections and would use either to make a quilt for my sister’s first grandson coming in July. The llams are great…I would buy the book “Is your Mama a llama?, to go along with the quilt.

  134. Last year, my husband and I decided to redecorate our whole house with furniture and accessories from the 1950s and 60s. The Modern Home fabric would be perfect for a living room throw and kitchen items. The Shelburne Falls would make lovely handbags. I don’t have much of a fabric stash, so winning these would be wonderful. Thanks.

  135. I could imagine using the Shelburne Falls for a scrappy look quilt, or to fussy cut the modern home and use as pockets on apron or framed for a throw. I have a quilting friend that would like these too.

  137. I would like to use the fabrics to make a wedding quilt for my godson and his soon to be wife. I have a preliminary vision of a modern patchwork pattern in my head and these prints would be fabulous!
    Thank you for considering me for the giveaway!

  138. These are such beautiful fabrics! Would love to make them into quilts for my daughter and daughter-in-law! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to win them.

  139. Denyse Schmidt is my favorite fabric designer so I would make a quilt for myself with Shelburne Falls and I will make pillows with the fabulous Modern Home line!
