I think I would make a cute zig zag baby quilt with the fabrics.

Nanna mary

I would Make A quilt For my New Great Grandson or A sleeping bag for when the winter comes.
Hugs Mary.


A bean bag chair for my little three year old. He would just love it.


No way Cherry ...

October 7th is my birthday too!!!!!!!!

I am thinking a cute strippy skirt and tote bag would look great but I think I would do a sort of medallion quilt ....the centre medallion consisting of four bento box blocks using plains and patterns and the outer borders using a mixture of the fabrics

Thanks for the opportunity to win these gorgeous fabrics ...Amy is in our main group on flickr...I adore her fabrics


We're expecting another great grandchild in Dec and I'm having trouble finding fabrics that would fit in the ultra modern new home. These fabrics would be perfect!!!



I would make a wall hanging and matching placemats and napkins. It is so whimsy and would be nice to use and look at.

Tasha S.

I think that I would make my 2 year old daughter a cute twirl dress with a matching head band. Then so we would look 'together' I would make us matching friendship bags to carry. The little owls are perfect for her because we call her our little night owl and my father-in-law calls her "Hoot".


My co-worker is expecting a first Grandchild in Nov. Perfect timing for the give away, so I would make a smashing baby quilt, a grab-n-go diaper bag (smaller scale) a neato fabric covered mothers journal. Or if the fabric is just toooo cool, I may have to keep it for myself and make a dress for one of my larger dolls & matching quilt!


What a great giveaway!!
I'm thinking reversible bags!!!
Andi :-)


I would love to make an apron with these fabrics. I have a pattern from "Sew Liberated" called the Emmeline Apron that would be a lot of fun in these fabrics!



How about a cute fabric bowl or two for Halloween candy! A big one for handing out and a small one for candy corn (my fall fave!)

Now I have a legit reason to dig to the bottom -- to get to the cute fabric!


Jen Eskridge

I think I'd make some drawstring backpacks for my kids. They are still little and those backpacks are just the right size.


I would make a small wonky log cabin quilt for my grandson. I think it would be adorable with the owls peeking through the centers of the block.

anne d

I love this fabric and I would make a cot quilt. It would be perfect for a baby quilt!

Shelley C

I think these would make wonderful journal covers for the grandkids. With a matching pencil case which I would fill with writing prompts....each day they can pick out a prompt and journal about it....Need to keep these kids in touch with writing


I'd make a weekend bag for my daughter to use coming home from college!

Julia Wood

I'd make a pillowcase and some throw pillows for my daughter's dorm bed at college - she ADORES owls.

Becky M

I think I would use it for a travel crayon holder for my daughter. We've been traveling a lot lately and it would be nice to have a spot for her crayons & markers.

barbara myltschenko

I would finally do something that has scared me, and applique some long sleeve onesies for a few babes that are on their way soon. I would make matching little taggie blankets to go along with them, I can almost see it already!

Ellyn Z

My mom loves Owls! & these are so adorable. I think I would make her a pretty table runner & a fabric basket for her table to hold napkins..... she'd love that!


That fabric is SO adorable. I have a pattern for a toddler size backpack and that fabric would be perfect to make a little gift for my two year old!
Your giveaway ends on my anniversary and my friend magikquilter's birthday(see comment above), which is two days after mine. Phew! October is a busy month. :)


Oooh, a BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you get everything you WISH for!!! Hmmm, what to make??? Maybe some fun kitchen accessories for Chirstmas presents???


I've been wanting to try a modern version of a double wedding ring quilt, so that would be high on my list! Mixed with some white kona and perhaps a few more fat quarters, I think I could get a nice sized quilt out of those fats! How cute would it be to have little owl eyes peeking out of some of the scraps?

Happy (early) Birthday!


Such yummy fabrics, almost too yummy to cut up. Lots of options, from baby quilts to diaper bags, but I think the owl fabric would look terrific in handbags.

Pam Anders

Oh! I would make a wonderful bag and matching wallet. I just love making bags and wallets, and this would would make a really awesome set. ^_^

Paulette Doyle

I would make a hexagon quilt called Merry Go Round! Love the fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!


I would make a darling quilted bag for my netbook!


My little 7 year old neighbor loves owls and has just been diagnosed with asthma. I think she would love a quilt to curl up with. She loves to come and snoop around in my sewing room and we could pick out the pattern together. This is great fabric!


I'm currently working on an owl quilt, so depending on the scale of owls, I would either use in a 9-patch w/the solids, or a big piece of owls to alternate with the 9-patches. Trust me, it makes sense in my head! :) lol


A few months ago my husband was attacked by an owl while jogging through the woods. He's fine (and so is the owl) but ever since we've teased him mercilessly. Lucky for all of us, he's a good sport and has now adopted the owl as his mascot. He's also a marathon runner and asked me a while back to make him a bag to keep in the car to hold all his running stuff. I can think of nothing better than a bag made of owl fabric!


What a wonderful giveaway!!!
I would make a bag for my daugter and one for me, then a wallet and a cellphonebag. And my dog should get a dog leash :-)
I love this fabric :-)))

hugs from germany


I've got about 5 baby quilts to make in the next couple months so I would definitely use the fabric for one of them!


This would make a great focus fabric with the owls being the center of wonky log cabin blocks for a quilt.

Cheryl Arkison

well, I already have that owl fabric on the to buy list so my mum-in-law and I can make fabric bins for my nehpew's nursery. They would go so well with the quilt I made:


I've been making plans to decorate my sons' room in greens and blues, with an animal theme.

With these fat quarter bundles, I would make two coordinating quilts, each with a boy's initials (SPH and DLH) in applique, to hang on the wall over their beds.

Dixon's quilt and pillow were made using Amy Schimler's fabrics, so these bundles would be a perfect complement!


A patchwork skirt for a little relative.



Fantastic fabric! The colors would be so perfect for fall! I would make a "Field Day" skirt (pattern from JCasa Handmade), for my daughter. Those solids would be awesome for the inverted pleats. Then I'd take one of those owls and applique it onto a plain t-shirt to match. Doesn't that look adorable? :-)


I think a wall quilt for my son's bedroom would be adorable in these fabrics...I really want to start working with more solids, this would be a great start! Thanks for another great giveaway!

Jo Anna

I think I would make some accessories for my daughter's or son's room, depending on the colorway. Lots of ideas really, organizational things, etc.

Jo Anna


I would make a lovely new handbag and accessories. My current handbag is pretty worn. The ladies I work with don't sew and they are always so impressed by my handmade items (if only they new how cheap and easy it can be with really cute fabric!).


With such adorable prints, I think I would make a simple blocks, maybe cut them around 7 1/2" and frame them with the solid prints. That way, you would see those cute, cute prints. I hope I win!!!

Debbie  St.Germain

I think it would make a beautiful fall, throw sized quilt.
Love the colors and fabrics.



my bday is oct 8th!! maybe this could be a bday present for me?ha ha

i would like to try making a little baby wipe holder and changing mat, bibs to match also. that would be cute!


I have twin 3 year old girls and a very cute pants pattern. I would use the Kona solids material to make pants and use the cute owl print shown and fussy cut the owls to make the back patch pockets. How cute to have owls on their bottoms! The pattern has a cute ruffle on the leg and an elastic waist. I might fussy cut some more owls to applique onto a long sleeve tee shirt.


My youngest daughter who is 2 is going to be moving from our room to her big sister, who is 12, room soon. I think it would have to be either a blackout blind... because it's cute enough for the younger and whimsical emough to be funky for the elder. OR I would be greedy and make a tote all for me :D or maybe both ;)

Happy Birthday to be :P


I would make a wall hanging and mobile for my soon to be born nephew (or niece ... my first either way)

Baby will be going home with mom and dad to a one bedroom loft style apartment, so a corner of their room with need to become cutesy. I think this fabric would look great against their exposed brick and modern decorations.


What timing! I've been looking at those owls to go with the kids bedding. I'm thinking pillows, wall art... and maybe even matching jammies! Not exactly quilty, but certainly fun!


ohhh, I would try to do the owls in the center of a log cabin, or maybe square inside a square and use that lovely solid print to wrap around those lovely owls. Thank you so much for the chance at these terrific fabrics!


I would make a "night owl" sleepover set. I'd need a little extra dark brown chenille for it...but here goes my idea> I'd make a nightowl backpack/messenger bag style made of dark brown chenille with flap pockets made with the coordinating owl fabrics. The straps would be done in the solids. The main flap would also be done in the coordinating owls. Inside would be a night owl quilt - a cozy soft quilt made of all the fabrics -and backed by a cozy soft chenille or minky in the matching chocolate brown colour. If I can swing it, it would probably be quillow style, folds into itself. The night owls would be watchers for the sleepover, just incase the wee one is a little anxious, nervous or worried about the sleepover. Kind of a security comfort blanket...but the owls are night watchers and can 'watch out' for the scary things like new noises, new shadows, etc. because of course, owls are nocturnal and stay up all night so you don't have to. Of course, with my night owl kit would come a coordinating comforting night owl stuffie made by me, that would tuck into one of the pockets of the backpack.
And as this idea came to fruition...yes, i would totally design and make this to show off if I won it! What a fun project to do ;-)


I'd make a wonky log cabin quilt with those big owl eyes peering out of the centres. What fun!
