i'd have to try a quilt more along jane's lines, more folk art and less of the modern ones that i usually go for, with a lot more detail and attention to precision. could be a lot of fun!

Debi said...

IF I won I would make baby items, bibs, burp cloths, etc. for a little girl due in June!

Andrea said...

With all those bright beautiful fabrics I'd make some new skirts for my daughter.

Kathryn said...

I love Jane's prints so much. I would make some clothing items, maybe a jacket with these wonderful designs so that it would really get shown. Kathie L in Allentown

Jan said...

I'd make a quilt, for sure.

Debbie said...

I have a collection of Jane's fabrics to add these to. I would like to make something with big enough patches so that all the wonderful larger prints will show up! Thanks!

C. said...

I'd have to say this will make the perfect baby quilt for a funky friend of mine who is having a baby girl! christina112358 at gmail dot com

Jenny said...

oooh, doesnt this look like a picnic quilt to you?? thanks for a chance!

Cheryl said...

I've been in love with Jane's patterns ever since I saw one of her willow quilts on a tv show a couple of years ago. I'd like to make a quilt with either her Wee Willow Deluxe pattern or the Amaryllis.

I'd use these great prints to make a contemporary quilt for my granddaughter who is starting high school....her quilts I made her are starting to look a little "childish" for a 14-year-old.

MollyP said...

I would probably use 3-4 yards to make a peasant skirt. Those colors are great and match most eveything in my closet. The remaining yardage would go to make new kitchen accessories. I love the feel of this collection for home goods. Thanks!

Laura said...

I would make some fabulous throw pillows for me and my sisters, and maybe a skirt for summer. I have some of Jane's fabrics already and am kind of intimidated when it comes to using it because I'm not 100% sure how to use the large prints in a quilt!

valerie aka scottydog said...

Furball Farm Quilting said...

If I won I'd like to have a go at making up a coverlet for my lounge. The lounge would immediately become a show piece for the house. I love these colours!

Beatrix from Kindershop said...

I think, I would make patchwork dresses for my girls for summer. Thanks for the chance to win. The plum and strawberry colorways are my favorite.

SunnyDay said...

My son is leaving soon for the Mississippi Teachers Corps, a two-year commitment, so I would make him a quilt using Jane's cheerful fabrics to keep him company while away from home!

Heather A said...

I'm newish to quilting but I would definitely want to tackle a BOLD quilt with these BOLD fabrics! Something less traditional for sure.

Pattyskypants said...

I have a feeling with six yards I would make more than one thing: a quilt, an artist's smock, an ipad cover for my dotter, a 'droid cover for Emma, an apron for Sally and potholders with the leftover scraps! What a treat it would be to win! xxoo

Mimi said...

These are all beautiful fabrics... I would make a lap quilt, new curtains to freshen up the bathroom, and placemats to brighten the kitchen!! Thanks!

Cecilia said...

I would use them to make a bag for me, a lap quilt and a few other things.

Love Love Love Jane Sassman fabrics and designs! I'd start right away on a new quilt for the springtime - after this winter the bedroom will need some brightening up!

Lynn said...

I'm in the mood to make aprons. How fun would that fabric be!!!

Gwen said...

What beautiful fabric!! I love all the colors! If I won, I think I would make some placemats, potholders, and maybe some new appliqued kitchen curtains!! That would make dishwashing much more enjoyable, I think! Thank you for the chance to win!! :-)

Tamie said...

Wow! You know this fabric would go into a quilt. Jane is quite inspirational. What a generous giveaway.

Kelly said...

I think a quilt for my daughter would be lovely, and I'd have to find a way to put some into a twirly skirt for her as well!

sue niven said...

I would make dolls clothes for my charity dolls.

I think I'd use that beautiful fabric to sew for my new granddaughter. Fabric dolls, and maybe bibs, a crib quilt...there are so many ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

thegoose said...

I love this fabric for anything, really, but I would probably use it to make a nice, big block quilt to highlight the prints.

Linda B said...

I'd make a quilt for my granddaughter!

gill said...

I'd make a picnic quilt ready for the warmer weather!

SassyCathy said...

Wow those are some pretty prints!
There have been so many fabrics lately with some reference to birds:)
I consider myself one too... I'm a "Byrd - bird" SMILES :)
I had doves in my wedding and now have beautiful blue birds of happiness sitting on my windowsills and all around. Birds can be so cheerful.
I would make something fun, cute and comfortable to "feather my nest" with. I love the quilt pattern she has for download with hearts - just in time for V Day!:)
Thank you,

I would make at least one quilt for Seattle Children's Hospital through our guild, Katie's Comforters, and one for myself, as well. Her pattern looks like one that even I could follow, and it would be fun to try some applique work! www.katiescomfortersguild.blogspot.com

Angie Stevens said...

One yard cuts are generous enough for so many different projects! I think I'd make an apron.

Jackie Craig said...

Oh definitely a darling sundress for my little lady, maybe a matching bag!!! These are fantastic fabrics!!! So excited about this giveaway :)

me said...

I have been wanting to make a summery quilt for playing outside with my lil ones. This fabric is perfect.

Caitlyn said...

OMG those fabrics are gorgeous!

I wouldn't want to cut them up! JK, they would make it into some quilts, and, just possibly, a new bag for myself:)

James-Linda said...

BEAUTIFUL FABRICS-I'D MAKE A QUILT FOR SURE! THANKS FOR SHARING!

Anonymous said...

If I were lucky enough to win I would make some bags and something cute for my darling granddaughter.AnnieS UK.

Debra Lee said...

I would make a qult from these fabrics!

floozina said...

I have just discovered these fabulous fabrics and a givewaway to boot! Bonus.

I think I would use them in conjunction with some plains to make sofa covers and place mats. We have two sofas - one is blue, the other dark red - and I would love to make them look similar.

floozina said...

Oops, I forgot to say that I like the Blueberry and Plum colourways best as they reflect the colours of my house and my heart (if that's not too corny, lol).

sleepy headed mom said...

I think I would make a blanket with matching pillows.

Sandra said...

I'd like to try one of those great aprons. I love the bright colors of her fabrics!

Nicole said...

I have a daughter who has announced she needs a new bedspread, curtains and the little kid bedrails removed from her bed, and no longer likes the princess themed room she has....Sassaman is just enough fun to go to work in a little bit big little girls room.....the bright colours definitely appeal.

Noémie said...

I am a novice at sewing, but am enjoying making little owl pins and purses and I would love to get some new fabrics!!

I would love to get good enough to make one of those aprons! I ADORE colourful aprons!

I truly hope I win!! :)

I would mske Anna Maria "Painted Portrait Blouse" and some baby girl dresses for my neice,who is expecting on Valentine's Day!

Allison said...

Even though Jane's fabrics are almost too pretty to cut, after googling them, drooling over them, and, pulling them out just too look at before going to bed, I would eventually make something with them. While they would be a gorgeous quilt, I would not have the patience to match them as they would need to be matched. So, in keeping with my standard sewing projects, I would make smaller items. I could very well imagine something for the home.

Simply lovely.

Sara said...

I would be making new curtains and pillows for my bedroom! A new spring decor!!

Sunnybec said...

Such pretty fabrics! Would love to make a quilt out of these. Thanks for the chance

Diane H said...

What fabulous fabrics! Anyone of these colourways would make a stunning table runner for my dining table. Thanks so much for chance.

SewLindaAnn said...

I would make a quilt. I was just trying to find the name of a pattern I just saw. Lots of interlocking lines on a white background. Something like that would be perfect for those luscious colors!

Marija said...

Oh my, LOVE Jane's fabrics - have still a shelf full of some older ones!!! Color and design on Jane's fabrics is just so beautiful! With these new ones - I can see that beautiful border print framing some curvy, colorful ribbons of those solid-reading fabric and squares of all other prints in between them, tossed like confetti...Whish I could sent you my mental picture, LOL! Thanks for a chance to win!

madrekarin said...

Oh, love, love, love. I would make clothing for my granddaughter. She would look adorable in Jane's gorgeous fabrics. :)
Thanks for the chance.

Missy said...

What would I make? I've been a fan of Jane's work for quite some time, so I'd probably have to just admire her work for a while. Then I'd take a cue from Jane's Quilted Garden book to make an original design with well-thought-out quilting. Lovely, lovely fabric!

3girls said...

First time I saw this fabric I couldn't believe how beautiful it is. I am thinking of place mats to brighten my kitchen table!!!

All those pretty fabrics. I would make some little dresses for my granddaughter for springtime. So pretty.

Hi! I'm Lisa said...

If I won the fabrics, there would be several new quilts in the making. I keep coming around to Henri Rousseau. His jungle paintings totally lend themselves to Jane Fabrics. I told a friend I was using Jane's Early Birds fabrics for my quilt in progress and the her response was "Of course you are". I have quite the reputation as a serious Jane fan in my quilt circle.
