So exciting! I would make kitty quilts for my cats and a new project bag for me! I love teal and brown together. melanieATmycreepycritters.com

I love these fabrics. I would love to make a bag because I love bags, but thanks to Amy from Stitchery Dickery Dock and Craftsy.com, I started quilting this year and I love it! so i might piece the squares together and then make a bag! the best of both worlds!!! My favorite color combination right now is bright orange, aqua blue and lime green!!

I'd have to make a quilt if I won those fabulous swatches. My new favorite color combo is turkey red and parchment. I know that is kind of boring but it is a big change from my "never met a blue I didn't like" favorites.

I would make a quilted market tote for my diaper bag! My fave color combo is green and purple. karenalindell AT yahoo DOT com

Anna Robinson said...

Oh man. How lovely!
I would likely split this amazing pack with my mama who taught me to quilt. We don't live in the same state anymore, so it would be fun to work on matching quilts, or, even better, to work separately on pieces for a combined patchwork!
I'm currently working in brown, orange, rose, and mint. But my heart beats quickly over those wines and navy blues.

My mom taught me all about the legacy of Liberty fabrics! She was in the middle of several quilted baby book projects when she was diagnosed with brain cancer 5 weeks ago. I would use Liberty fabrics to finish up all of her projects, and maybe even make her a lap quilt- our favorite color combination is red and turquoise.

I learned how to sew when I was about seven years old. Over time, I acquired other interests and sewing projects were forgotten, and my sewing skills were reduced to only the basics. Recently I graduated from college, and as a graduation gift my mother bought me a new Brother sewing machine! My love for sewing was instantly rekindled, and I am constantly inspired by the numerous sewing crafts and DIY's out there. With this fabric I would make a lot of the sewing projects I've found and pinned on Pinterest - Ipod or card pouches, festive bunting decorations, etc. My favorite color combination is grey and lavender! And my email is alexandra.varone@colorado.edu

Just so we're clear... if I win this I probably will cry. Ha.

applebluehandmade@gmail.com

If I win (and after I stop crying happy tears) I would love to incorporate these fabrics into my first ever handmade quilt in progress, just in time for winter to roll around. And I'd use the rest to make some things for my friends first apartment.

I love dark blues and mustard yellows right now. But it's hard to choose just ONE color combo.

Thanks ladies! -Amanda

Turquoise and orange is always always my favorite color combo, but I like the whole yellow and grey thing the world has going right now too.

Debbie B said...

I would probably use them for a dress for the grandgirl . But more likely little pieced bags for me, my family, and riends. My favorite color combo lately is red and turquoise.

While I don't know exactly what I would make, I know it would be something for me. I have not made something for myself in such a long time, and these fabrics would be great for a little me time! :) As far as color combos go, I love grey, turquoise, yellow, and pink together. It's a little different, but I love it! :)

alsn said...

Who doesn't love Liberty? It's some sort of magic they weave into the fabric that makes people crazy for it, I'm convinced! If I had a stack of those swatches I'd construct a hexagon hand-pieced quilt of doom with white interspersed to give it lift. Sheer joy! My fav color combo always seems to be a sea-green teal with poppy red. And my email is iagomacbeth(at)yahoo(dot)com ... most days.

Kari said...

Are you sure you don't want to just hide those bolts in the back so you won't run out? That's what I'd want to do! Colors I like lately almost any color with navy.

My favorite color combo is the orange and blue.
