    Wow! what a great give-away. I would make a new quilt for my 17yr old grandaughter who is in dire need of a new one. Last one I gave her was an I Spy for her 6th birthday.Tres Chic would be the ideal fabric for her. Thank-you for this opportunity to win this great give-away.

  2. Stacey Ann says:

    I love vintage-inspired and the “real-thing” vintage fabrics. I usually make quilts and then use the leftovers to make a doll quilt or patchwork skirts for my daughter or a friend of hers.

  3. Janet Merdan says:

    I live in MN and my oldest granddaughter lives in TX. The end of October I’m going to TX for 10days and my son is going to buy his daughter a sewing machine so grandma can start to teach her how to sew. I would love to be able to take this beautiful fabric to her to learn to sew. Possible projects would be pillowcases, placemats, shorts, the skies the limit what she can learn to make.

  4. Debbie says:

    Oh my, the fabric just makes me drool. If I had the opportunity, I would fondle the fabric for a bit and then fly them up to Minnesota to my Aunt Sallly. She makes the most wonderful quilts for loads of people (and I am patiently waiting my turn). However, it seems there is always a new baby or a well deserving group to quilt for. Or she is busy helping others learn quilting techniques. We are many hundreds of miles apart, but every trip to see her includes time to enjoy her new projects. And I fall in love with each one for different reasons! Perhaps a “gift” of the wonderful fabric would bump me to the front of the line. What do you think, Aunt Sally?
    ps I used to hand sew and machine sew, but painful carpal tunnel causes me to lose enough control in my hands for any quality of work.

  5. Karin says:

    What a wonderful chance to win this gorgeous fabric. Thank you for that! If I would win I would make some clothing for my little ones. And decorate their rooms. An my crafting room. And.. and.. and… There are tons of projects I can think of. Would it be okay too to just stare at the fabric for a little while before I decided? :-)

  6. Sheri Lalk says:

    This fabric is so beautiful. I would have to make a very special quilt with it. Such Lovely Fabric. I would love to win!

  7. Pamela Mason says:

    I love the Mary Frances & Thimble Friends, and I would make a large tote with an iron on vinyl with some of the fabric. I’d use a heavy denim or canvas for the bottom and straps, and maybe an inside divider. With whatever’s left over I think I’d applique on a coordinating solid or pattern to make a smaller purse or, depending on the pattern, applique on a jacket I once loved and needs a ‘reinvention’.

  8. Wanda Richards says:

    Wow the possibilities are endless. Of course my 2 grandkids would be first on my list of gifts that I’d make. My mom would be next, she started teaching me to sew on her singer when i was 7. She’s unable to sew or craft anymore and she would love a new quilt. A group of gals in our school also make quilts for Project Linus and these beautiful fabrics would be soo helpful. Love this give away! Love all your ideas and fabrics..

  9. Barbara says:

    I love these retro prints! I would use them to make Christmas gifts for my daughters and sisters. I’m thinking aprons (http://www.indygojunctioninc.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=579 or http://www.indygojunctioninc.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=842) and pieced pincushions (http://www.indygojunctioninc.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=578).

  10. What a great assortment of fabric. I am trying to sew a few small items for friends for Xmas - such as pincushions, quilted purses and aprons. And my daughter and grandchildren have just moved in with me….what a great opportunity to teach my daughter (now she wants to learn) and my granddaughter how to sew. The fabric is so retro and unique, it would be perfect.

  11. Patty says:

    What lovely fabric! I would make doll clothes, doll-sized quilts, etc. I work with young children who have emotional-behavioral challenges. Both boys and girls love to care for the “babies” (dolls) in my office. I think I would also try simple sewing projects, like small “happy dream pillows,” with some of the 5 & 6 year olds.

  12. Barbara says:

    What beautiful fabric! I would make each of my three! grandsons a little quilt. And I would make the new refugee families in our church community quilts for a Christmas gift.

  13. alana goetzinger says:

    The city I live in has approximately 50,000 residents. With that number comes a fair number of homeless families. Each child staying at the homeless shelter is given their own handmade quilt when they enter the shelter. These quilts are made by our local quilt guild which is always in need of fabric for this project. Your fabric giveaway would help to provide a handmade quilt to the many children who have so little.

  14. Susan B. Irwin says:

    This wonderful fabric brings back memories of the doll clothes my grandmother and great-grandmother made for me from scraps left from handmade curtains and clothes. I belong to a cross stitch group and would share the fabric with fellow stitchers for their varied projects.

  15. terry sweet says:

    who wouldnt want free fabric- both lines look charming. by the # of posts- others agree

  16. Pamela Lee says:

    Sometimes i just surround myself with fabric and the color or design just transports me to another place . I have a six year old grandaughter who is half Japanese and will be going back there with her parents to live.She is the only grandaughter and I would use the fabric to make her some outfits and a stuffed little something to remember me by.

  17. jill redding says:

    I would make something for my quilt guild auction and also for my daughter at college. I am trying to show her and her friends how cool sewing can be!

  18. My sister works in upholstery and has given me lots of the fabric samples that go out of date. They are 18″ x18″ - the perfect size for a tote bag. I am making donated bags to go to the Huntsman Cancer Center in SLC, UT, for patients who come in for chemo. The fabric would be really great for liners for these totes and to make outside embellishments. I have worked at HCC before and the totes would come in handy to carry a small blanket , book, glasses, etc., for the patients to carry their personal items in. This fabric is very cheerful and would work very well with the samples that I have.

  19. Penny DeMora says:

    Such a generous giveaway and so much fabric! Some of the Tres Chic would be integral in a quilt and bedding for my 16 year old who is shoe crazy! I can imagine tons of projects with so much fabric!

  20. Mary Miller says:

    The fabrics are “so bad!” as my two granddaughters in Sarajevo, Bosnia, Heresgovina, would say. Translated to what I would have said at their ages, they are neato and the best!
    I would use the fabrics to make beautiful quilts for these two beautiful girls. Last year, Russia cut off the supply of heating oil to eastern Europe during the coldest weeks of the winter. Their family along with all the others had to stay huddled together under all the covers they had to keep from freezing. At least two new quilts would let Nini’s love help them stay warm in style.
    P.S. Their parents are with the embassy there and are coming back to Washington D.C. in a year or two.

  21. Hassanah Meechan says:

    Wow, such a generous gift to win! My mind is racing with ideas. I would sort through the bundle and see what fits best but here are some that come to mind:
    1. sign up to make a quilt square for the local fire department’s fundraiser,
    2. make throw pillows and pillowcases for my 2 little boys,
    3. make aprons for adults and children (I have 7 brothers and sisters and 9 nieces and nephews),
    4. make napkins and placemats,
    5. make clothes for my 2 youngest nieces (sundresses, pj’s)
    6. make tote bags…

    Thanks for listening and thanks for the opportunity! :)

  22. Yolanda Blackmore says:

    My newborn son spent 2 months in the NICU. He was born premature. The staff was not only skilled and educated, they were wonderful. My son had a handful of women that were his primary team on a daily basis and a primary nurse. If I won the fabric, I would make them each a baby size quilt and thank them for putting their heart into their job. This would be a gift from my now healthy, flourishing 3 month old.

  23. Ann Kelly says:

    One of my friends (coworker) loves shoes, has a pair for almost every outfit….. I would love to make her a wall hanging highlighting her passion. My quilt guild, Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild, makes baby quilts and wheelchair lap quilts and I would share the remainder of the fabric with them.

  24. Gina says:

    I would use the beautiful fabric to make “Love Pockets”. My crafty friend Mary altered a project in the new Handmade Home book and she named it Love Pockets. My base will be a recycled blanket and the fabric will make up the pocket portion. Everyone in my family will have a pocket-5 total. I will probably make another big pocket to hold scrap paper and pens. These pockets will hopefully be used to leave small notes and surprises to brighten someone’s day!

  25. Diane says:

    Wow, what would I do with either of these fabrics… hoarding it comes to mind, but after that I would pick a cool print for a bag for each of the dd’s and then plan out a great quilt.

  26. Brenda says:

    First of all I love the Vintage Workshop and Amy! Have ordered items before and just want to thank you for your company! If I were to be honored to own these fabrics it would be awesome! Like most quilters which includes me, it just kills me to think of cutting up these soft beautiful fabrics. I would just like to display them for awhile and feel how great the fabric feels, ah! Then hear my daughter say, “Mom (about my stash) this is getting out of hand!” And then search hi and low for the perfect pattern, do some old vintage blocks along with some applique and hey I’ve finally made me a quilt! One for me!!!

  27. Dianna Herren says:

    Hi there,
    In the event I would be the lucky winner of the fabric giveaway - I would make stuffed animals and tic-tac-toe carrying game bags for my grandchildren who have moved a thousand miles away. I try to send them a box of something every month. They don’t need candy all the time, mom doesn’t want cheap little toys that break the first time you play with them and they are disappointed, so I try to make things for them. Beside the fact that the items last they are made especially for them by their Mammy.

  28. Beth Connors says:

    I love these beautiful fabrics for vintage scrapbooks. I love to use them on the covers to make them look old as well. My grandmother of 50 grandchildren sewed and my mother says that all that fabric takes her back to watching her mother sew. When she died I was the one to get her sewing machine. I have been the only grandchild to take on the sewing. I also have some vintage patterns that I would love to make some dresses for my three year old daughter. Of course there would also be a quilt in there for my kids to wrap up in on cold days. Thanks Amy and the Vintage Workshop for all the wonderful ideas and images.

  29. Jan Perry says:

    What a terrific fabric treasure chest! A project I have done several times is to make dresses for little girls in Africa! We make them from size 4 to size 16 as a church project (Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints) We have had two “dress drives” each time completing 100 to 300 dresses. More fabric would really be a boon, to share with these precious children who have so very little. Thank you so much for your consideration.

  30. Lorraine Moy says:

    This is a beautiful contest. For folks like us, fabric given to us is a give of “rare pearls.” I sew more vintage fabrics and garments/home dec are likely to be vintage. I love the pictures printed on fabric. I would love the Mary Frances and Thimble Friends for aprons, hot pads and towel toppers, place mats and even worked together into a beautiful tablecloth. Also, if fabric left, I would have matching table runners for tables in family room, toothbrush rugs that are small, used for hot mats on our dining table. I love using a group of great designs to make the 3 parts of our great room, kitchen, eating, and family rooms all in one big, inviting space, tied together with beautiful fabric.

  31. Loouise Thewes says:

    If I were lucky enough to win either one of the fabric packs, I would make quilts for pediatric hospice patients. I love to make quilts and give them to the children at hospice.
    Myself and a friend use our scraps to donata quilts to the needy on a regular basis.

  32. Pattie says:

    I love the Vintage fabric collections! It would be fun if you could put together a vintage birds/nature set.

  33. Carol says:

    Wow! These are large bundles. I’d make a quilt plus pillowcases for donations to my chemo doctor - they use them for patients. Any leftovers would make good tote bags for shopping!

  34. Wendy says:

    I would use it for the Quilting For Comfort group that I belong to. We make quilts and give them to various organizations.

  35. Leona Phillips says:

    What wonderful fabrics. I would be making Tulip Purses, Tote bags, Eco-Friendly snack bags & vintage style sweatshirt jackets for my many Grandchildren.

  36. Karen Propes says:

    Oh my goodness, when I saw what you were giving away, I couldn’t believe it. Now that I have looked at it a couple of times, I see it is true. How I would love to win the fabric, I would love creating a quilt and some Christmas Ornaments for my beautiful loving giving family who has been there for me when I needed them the most!!!!

    Thanks for the great contest!!!! Your site and information are so great for everyone and a fabulous site to share with friends.

  37. dmj53@hotmail.com says:

    With that many yards, I could do so much. A quilt for my mother, one for each of my daughters, some table runners, wall hangings. I could make so many wonderful things. So if I win, please contact me at dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

  39. craftynana says:

    Lovely, generous idea! I would most likely add these fabrics to either a kid quilt for
    Children’s Hospital in Little Rock (an ongoing effort at my co-op extension club) or
    a prayer quilt. I’ve knitted lots of shawls but just recently heard about prayer quilts
    along the same line, as gifts for the ill or grieving. Right up my alley! There are always
    plenty of recipients.

  40. Jacque Dunn says:

    I love the look and appeal of these fabrics. I would love to win them as I am venturing back into the world of quilting after 17 years of raising a lovely young lady who is a Senior this year. We adopted her as an infant after we had raised two sons (our friends told us we were nuts to start all over again). She was in a very abusive home situation and we felt this was what God wanted us to do. She is the light of our life and we have never regretted our decision. I have not quilted since she came into our life and now soon she will be going off to college and I need to occupy my mind. Quilting was always and still is my passion and this fabric would help me get started on that love again!

    Awesome fabrics = cool scrapbooks albums covers!! :-)

  42. sandra742 says:

    Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. :) Cheers! Sandra. R.

  43. Linda Harp says:

    I would so love to win the fabric, it is gorgeous! I have grandchildren, friends and family who would all appreciate having something I have made! I am retiring at the end of the year and will finally have time to sew, sew, sew. My husband has cancer and the first thing I want to do is make him a lap quilt.

    I also want to download some images for various projects. One of which is: My parents had their 50th anniversary and received quite a few quilt blocks, but not enough for a whole quilt. That has been over 15 years ago–my dad has passed on and I really want to put the quilt together for my mom.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    Sincerely,

    Linda

  44. Edith says:

  45. Jackie says:

    Hi,
    This is the first time I’ve blogged-had to figure out how to do it!!! Anyway, thought I’d leave a comment. There are some trult deserving folks for that beautiful favric. it makes me feel giulty and selfish to wish I had it too. I don’t really know hoe to sew. I bought a cheap sewing machine at wal-Mart and am intimidated by it!!! I but pretty remnants at stores like Michaels and Joannes. I have lots of embellished panels and things I’ve put together with beads hand embroidery and assorted pretty threads and fibers but when it comes to finishing the edges off I just put them away. I still want pretty things when I see them though!!! Ha Ha. I’m so moved by all of the wonderful projects so many of you all do to help people. It is truly inspiring. You have made my day to see it.

  46. What a beautiful assortment. Whether you win the free bundle or buy your still a winner!!

  47. Wow! These are large bundles. I’d make a quilt plus pillowcases for donations to my chemo doctor - they use them for patients. Any leftovers would make good tote bags for shopping!

  48. Kathy Yutzy says:

    Wow! 25 yards goes a long way. I have always had a desire to make dresses for children in Appalachia, and other poor areas in America. I grew up in hand-me-downs, and thrift stores (which is not a bad thing, but we have much more to choose from than we did 30-40 years ago). But I want children to have the chance to have one brand new outfit that they can call their very own. And my ultimate dream would be to help them learn to sew, so that they can make clothing for their families.

    You have many wonderful causes to choose from, God knows where it needs to go! Happy sewing ladies!

  49. Pat Pulis says:

    I would absolutely love to win this fabric. I have three grandchildren and 2 of them are still waiting for a quilt from me so I know that this fabric would inspire me to get moving!
