My Sewing Machine Cover AND a Nesting Chairs Giveaway!

I'm sure you guys are all like this...

I have a list of things to-do that's a mile long. And absolutely nowhere on that list does it say 'go make something for your sewing room.' But this last weekend I set the ever present to-do list to the side and made myself a pretty sewing machine cover. I used my Nesting Chairs fabric and the matching Nesting Chairs pillow panel (for the big chair in the center). I pieced it together in strips with white sashing and quilted it in stripes and a concentric box. All that's left to do it make and attach the binding and add grommets with ties to keep the sides closed.



I'm thrilled with the way it's turned out so far. I love little projects like this so I can actually finish them. I think I worked for 3 hours or so on Saturday and it was a great diversion and really fun. (Insert sheepish grin here...Remember that duvet cover I started a while ago? It still sits unfinished. I've finished piecing the top but haven't quilted it/assembled the duvet pocket...I hope to get that finished soon...) So, I'm hoping my machine cover project may have inspired you to tackle a quick and fun project (that's not on your to-do list!).

I'm going to give away a FQ set of Nesting Chairs in Aqua/Orange + 1 Pillow Panel to one winner. Yahoo for giveaways, right?!?

Just leave me a comment here and tell me what project you might use your Nesting Chairs in. I'll randomly draw one winner this Monday 3/21/11 around 8am CT. Oh, and I'll get my sewing machine cover finished by then too :)

I would love to make a pillow cover with it. Not for the living room but for the chair that sits in front of my sewing machine. Just because it is the best companion when sewing and it looks so sad without a pillow :)

Amber H. said...

Well, since my 3 year old claimed the last pillow I made that I had intended to use on my couch, I'll use the FQ bundle to make myself a new one! Or two.. or three.. As many as I can!

Anna said...

I would definately make pillows for my brown sofa - I think the colors would be beautiful!

All With LOVE said...

I think Id would definitely make a quilt for myself with this! Love the color combo! Thanks

quiltilicious said...

A mad, mad quilt!

knottygnome said...

i love blue and orange. it seems like a great combo for a baby quilt and a matching pillow. i'm going to be an aunt sometime in august--that's probably what i'd use it for.

thanks for the giveaway!

Amanda said...

Pillows! Love this fabric.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Such fun fabric! I would probably use mine for a super cool and funky tote bag! Or maybe a small quilt! I'd have to look at it for a while before deciding!

Andrée Lachapelle said...

Ooooh, I might have to use it to make a sewing machine cover for myself -- I love yours! Thanks for having this giveaway!
MissAndree at Hotmail.com

Zibu said...

Hard to decide but probably a cover for my serger - I have been meaning to make one forever and seeing your new cover has inspired me!

elisa.b said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I love all your fabrics. I would probably try to incorporate it into a quilted couch cushion or maybe an apron.

Jen said...

What an awesome cover! And I love those prints; they would look great turned into pillows for my son's room (and would go perfectly with a quilt I have planned for him).

Kim O. said...

I really need an organizer for our magazines and remotes - it'd look so great hanging off the arm of our couch!!

Dan R said...

I'd like to make a quilt with it.

Bry said...

Oh my goodness you cover came out so cute!! I adore this new line of your Laurie and desperately want to get my hands on it!!! If I did it would most likely go into a quilt, or a mini quilt for my sewing area!

liberal sprinkles said...

yahoo! I would love to see some cushion covers in this fabric. Thanks for the chance!

Sharolyn said...

My sister is having her first baby, so I would definitely use the fabric to make something for her and baby. Great neutral colours. Thanks for running the giveaway!

beautifulshell said...

Wow, that looks great! I've had a sewing machine cover on my to do list for years now; this is a great idea!

Staci said...

This is such cute fabric! I'd make a mini quilt to hang in the sewing room, if I were the lucky winner!

Stine said...

So cute...can't wait to see the finished product. I'm envisioning some great wristlets/zipper pouches.

Jewel said...

I love your nesting charis they are so stinkin' cute. I just joined a swap for sewing machine covers that will be fun. I think I would use it in my kitchen and family room (they flow into eachother) because the colors match what I am working on there. Pillows and a table runner.... fun fun!

yahaira said...

ooo that fabric would make a fun baby quilt! though I would be tempted to use it for a pin board I'm dreaming up

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

The fabric would look great not only as a pillow cover, but it could also be a really cool tote bag...

Kati said...

I would use it for some new pillow covers for my living room. I really want to stick to decorating in teal and orange. I think these would be perfect.

sarah said...

I'm thinking a tote bag, though I'd really love a throw pillow or two with that yellow-background pillow panel.

Sonia B said...

Fun colors . . . I'm a quilt lady. It would be fun to snuggle under a little quilt with chairs on it, while sitting on a big fluffy chair and read a book about birds ;) Thanks for the chance!

Samantha said...

I would love to make a quilt out of these fabrics!! The prints are so much fun, and the colors are right up my alley! Thanks for the chance towin this!

Hannah said...

I love these colors, and I'd definitely want to use the fabric in a fun, cuddly lap quilt. Thanks for giving some away!

greta @ topography said...

I would love to try some patchwork for a cushion for my grey, grey living room :)

pond_ripple said...

I think I might try to make an over-the-shoulder bag since my old purse is on its last legs :)

Jodi said...

I need a pretty sewing machine cover, too, and a pillow for my aching back! Thanks for the chance!

Shannon said...

I have to admit that I would be a little selfish and make myself a quilt! I just love this fabric and I'm not sure I could part with it!!

Regan said...

omigosh..way to beautiful to cut..I'd make framed wall art!

Tina @ Squirrel Acorns said...

Love, love the orange and aqua colorway. It's my favorite combo! A sewing machine cover is a great idea. Yours is beautiful. My current cover is white plastic nothing-ness that came with the machine. Or a pillow. I need to make more pillows!

Stevens Family said...

Love this fabric. I would make pillows for my couch that needs some happiness.

Katie said...

A quilt! Yay for giveaways!

Jenny said...

definitely a quilt for my daughers room!

Leigh Ann said...

I would make a quilt and pillow for my living room. I absolutely love this color combo!

Bailey said...

Oh, I can't decide right now! We're buying a house and I want to have a craft room...I might use this fabric to accessorize said craft room in some way!

Meri said...

Love your sewing machine cover...nothing like a little (almost) instant gratification!
Thanks for a chance to win your great fabric...I think I'd make a pillow with it!

Lisa said...

I would love to make a pillow! I love this fabric!

Leila said...

Love your sewing machine cover! These little inbetween projects are usually the ones I enjoy doing most!
If I win I'd probably make a quilt or some pillows.

Candace said...

I would make a zipper pouch with it. I travel a lot with my work and these things save me -- I never seem to have enough.

AllieKatMom said...

Honestly, I would love to make a pillow with these! They are soooo great! I really LOVE the colors!

Angela said...

oh I would love to win these! I've been drooling over them! Let's see...so many projects, so little time. I might be tempted to use them on something for my daughter, but I think I would want them all for myself. lol

QuiltyGirl said...

So cute! I am going to baste a Tufted Tweets quilt tonight! I didn't think you could outdo the TT, but I think i like the new line even more.
I'd love to make some throw pillows with the new line, i think my living room needs a facelift!

Anonymous said...

Oh Laurie, how wonderful it would be to win some of your beautiful fabric. I need a sewing machine cover - what a great idea! I hope I win. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations with all of us!

Holly Dallow - hdallow@allenmatkins.com

Allisa Jacobs said...

I'd make a quilted wall hanging for sure...orange is a favorite color around here! Lovely machine cover too :)

thank you! xo

Paula said...

Wowww, I'd love to make some absolutely crazy pillows fr my sofa!
This is a gorgeous giveaway! tks, xo

AnneMarie said...

Love the new header... I haven't clicked over from my reader since you've changed it! Anyway, wow, I would love to make a quilt and some chair pads for my sewing room and pc chair. I spend a lot of time in both! thank you!

Digital Misfit said...

Simply one of the most fun and fabulous fabric lines ever!
I have 2 vintage rattan chairs under my staircase. The original pillows (currently tucked inside cute pillowcases) are that horrid orange and brown 70s floral tweed. I plan to paint the chairs in a bright happy color, and I would LOVE to use this fabric to recover the chair cushions!

heidig@gmail.com

Lara said...

Oh Laurie... this is my favourite yet :) The colours are delicious. After 5 years of hand me down furniture we are going to buy a new couch! Which will of course need cushions... I'd use this fabric to make some lovely cushions so that I could see those little birds everyday. Thank you!

Lindsay said...

Well I know it is not very original now but I love the look of this fabric as a sewing machine cover :)

The Hungry Crafter said...

Yahoo for giveaways indeed! :) Not sure what i would do -- no doubt they would sit on my sewing shelf while I oohed and ahhed over them for a good month+ before I could bring myself to cut them! I'd love to mix them patchwork style... Maybe a suite of coordinating notebook covers?

Karen said...

I've got the sewing machine cover on my to do list! Yours looks so pretty. If I didn't use the fabric for that I'd perhaps use it for the weighted pincushion organiser (found here: http://www.sewmamasew.com/store/media/blog/SMSPincushionOrganizer.pdf) Thanks for the great giveaway! :o)

Pondering said...

I would love to make something for my daughter who keeps saying...."Mom, why don't you stop reading blogs on my laptop and go make something!"

Sarah@PingsAndNeedles said...

Ooohh ... I'd make a lap quilt for my god-daughter who loves loves loves blue and orange and birds .... :) thank you for the chance to win ... I also love your sewing machine cover (I just got a fab one in a swap though, so I'm happy! )

Mary said...

I love this new line! I would definitely use these in a baby quilt....for a friend. The little nest and the colors...perfect!!!

Michael said...

A bag.. I would definitely make a bag out of it!

~Michelle~ said...

I'm looking for some new funky fabric to make chair pads with!

Helen said...

I'll make a pillow for my new living room. We're moving this week to a neighboring state... exciting times!

Kathryn said...

A definite Yahoo for giveaways. I might just follow your lead and make a cover for my machine. It currently just sits there bare. Kathie L in Allentown

Nellie's Niceties said...

You know I love your fabrics :) If I was lucky enough to win this giveaway I'd make a pillow and a matching throw quilt or a fabulous bag I could take shopping with me :)

webmailaddress2 said...

The fabric would make a super cute pillow cover! Thanks for the giveaway!

mle said...

Your quilt is beautiful! I would use the fabric in a quilt as well since I'm a quilter. I absolutely LOVE the aqua and orange together!!
mle_mcclendon(at)charter(dot)net

WandaFish said...

Ooh, what a lovely giveaway, thank you! I think these gorgeous fabrics would be destined to become a pillow and a lap quilt for me to snuggle up with on the sofa. They're just too scrummy to give to someone else :)

mathea said...

Your sewing machine cover looks great. My sewing machine should be so lucky! But the nests on the fabric immediately made me think in terms of baby quilts, so that's where I'd go, I guess. It would go really well with some of the Tufted Tweets fabrics as well - I've finally managed to start cutting into mine and made myself a little bag last weekend :-)

littlebetty said...

Gosh, I'd probably piece a dress for my daughter - she's 1. I think that would be totally wild. Who'd make a dress for a kid with chairs and birds fabric??? No one else will have one like it, that's for sure!

Joy said...

Those colors would be perfect to make a little pillow to go on the orange chair in my blue craft room!

jednoiglec said...

Those colors would be perfect for something to the hall at my home - I should only add purple solid and it would look great!

holly p said...

I think I'd make a pillow with it! Thanks for the giveaway!

Bec Clarke said...

Oh I have a pattern for a reading pillow with tabs to hold your book and a pocket for your glasses, I want to make one of those and this fabric would be so great.

Vickie said...

I have been eyeballing this fabric for a pillow, but oh my goodness, I love this sewing machine cover!!!!! I may just have to do this, win or not!!! Cute!!!

Kristy said...

Love this fabric. I'd probably make some accent pillows for my room.

Erin said...

Oh my! Can I just say that I think I might like this fabric even better than tufted tweets? I didn't think it was possible. Honestly, I would probably hoard it for a while, until I found the perfect project, but I think it would find it's way into a quilt.

Bellgirl said...

Oh it looks so nice all sewn up! I'm dying for Nesting Chairs to come onto the market because I'm going to make a set of place mats. The colours will look smashing with the Australian Blackwood of my mid-century modern dining table. I can't wait! bellgirlsblog [at] gmail [dot] com

Nova said...

birds & chairs *swoon* you've done it again Miss Laurie. Love these so much! I'd love a set of fabric buckets in these yummies and I might just have to frame some in hoops or over canvas to stick on the wall too. :)

Carrie L said...

I'd love to make a bag with it. Or maybe a quilt for my little boy. It's so cute--I love those colors.

Sarah Craig said...

I'd actually like to make a sewing machine cover out of it - I love yours!!! It's such great fabric....

Bek said...

i definately think some fabic baskets and possibly even a quilted pillow would be stunning in this fabric!

Tong said...

LOVE the fabrics, the colours, and everything about them! I think they are screaming to become a new spring throw quilt for our couch!

Clumsy Chord said...

I'd probably make some kind of pillow with it - I find my stash perpetually short on orange, so I'd have a hard time pairing the fabrics with what I've got (I am on a fabric diet - no more new fabric for me, at least till I finish my goal projects for the year...) to make anything bigger.

Jennifer said...

Wow, awesome giveaway. I would love to use these in an orange and aqua quilt! Thanks!

Lori said...

I love your fabric designs!!! What would I make? I don't have a specific idea in mind, but something decorative and functional would be the best use. That way I can use it and look at it, 'cause it just makes me happy!

9patchnurse said...

I love love love that fabric and the colors!! I would make a quilt, a nice bright cheerful modern quilt!

Lucy said...

Definitely a fun little quilted wall hanging. I'm in the middle of a giant quilt (my first bed-sized attempt!) and I could use a small & quick satisfying project to pep me back up :)

Peaceful Piecer said...

I think a small quilt or a cool bag.Thanks for a chance to win

Bea said...

That's lovely. I'm thinking I might like to use these to dress up my office a bit. A pillow for the chair and maybe a little wall quilt so I have some pretty art to look at.

highwaycottage said...

I think a lap quilt and cushion for my couch !! Love your work.

epban said...

I just adore the colors and designs of this group! My favorite colors and a beachy look! I'd make a summer table runner for the dining room.

Zia Maria said...

I love the fabric designs and colors! I have never made myself a sewing machine cover, so I think that would be perfect. My son says I need to do more things for myself anyway...

plnewhou(at)juno(dot)com

Marg M said...

I would love a quilt such great colours :-)

RWL said...

we desperately need some floor pillows. and i think it would be fun to have floor pillows...with chairs on them! not to mention, the colors are fab. :)

MB in MI said...

i think a sewing machine cover would be in order--:-) thanks for the chance to win your great fabric!!

Poppyprint said...

Well, since I already have one pillow cover, I'd make a matching one for the opposite end of the couch!! Love your sewing machine cover. I'm waiting for my Urban HOme Goods swap pkg to arrive and I have my fingers crossed for a cover! If one doesn't show up, perhaps I'll use my fabulous winnings to make one (similar) to yours. I'm sure your machine won't mind, will it? They'll likely never be at the same party together :)

Sew Now! said...

I would love to use this fabric in my sewing room. I have a small white love seat in my new space that needs an "attention getter" pillow. And I would love to make a cover for my machine. Yours is the second cover I have seen. Great Job!!

missbossypants said...

I'd love to make a mug rug (or two) with the FQ bundle. I'd love to make a sewing machine cover as well. Thanks for the chance to win!

Rachel said...

I have been making quilts for over a year now, and have not kept one yet. I am wanting one for MY bed, and these prints are just the colors I have been thinking of. And of course, anything with birds I adore! Awesome of you to share.

Katie B. said...

Yay! They'd make some great pillows for my living room.

Bingaling said...

I was thinking a couple pillows or a quilt...though now that I see your sewing machine cover, that looks like a good idea too! I love the color combination!
Chanda

Drew and Rita said...

Ohh, I would definitely make a pillow with the fabric. It would be for my bed. All the sofa pillows end up in my kids' play tents.

DianeY said...

What I already bought I'm hoping to use in a quilt! But the sewing machine cover is giving me other ideas! I'd love some of the aqua, too!

Joanna said...

Pillows. You can't have too many pillows

Val Campbell said...

How cute would a bag be with those nesting chairs? And of course a pillow!!!! Crossing my fingers...

Megan said...

I really need some more patchwork pillows and this would be the best excuse ever!

Linda said...

I'd make a throw!

judy said...

a pillow, a magazine bag holder, an ipad case....and I could go on and on.
Judy Sebastian

Sara @ Sew Sweetness said...

Your cover looks so cool!!!

I would use the fabric for a pillow to go along with my Tufted Tweets postage stamp quilt :-)

Violet Craft said...

I would absolutely use this for pillows for my living room. The colors are fabulous!

Katrina said...

I would love to make a mini quilt for my sewing room wall. I only have two mug rugs up right now :)

Justine said...

I would so make a cushion for my living room and a matching mini quilt, or maybe a new lamp shade!

Blueberry Park said...

cushions, cushions, cushions! It's so gorgeous, Laurie and thanks for the opportunity ;-)

rachandcarl said...

love these colors, i think a wall hanging, and some cushions

Beth said...

I'd supplement these gorgeous fabrics with a few complementary tone-on-tones and make Elizabeth Hartman's "New Wave" quilt. Thanks for the chance to bring home fabric I've been wishing for!

wordygirl at earthlink dot net

nutterbug said...

I would make a baby quilt for a friend as they are considering trying for a second baby soon :)

Katie said...

I think id use it to make some gorgeous cushions,Id love to make a sewing machine cover like that but fear my skills are not quite at that level!

Amy said...

Oh! I love them! I really don't know what I would make yet. I like to stare at the pretty stacks of fabric for awhile before deciding!

stitchsister said...

I am planning a baby quilt in blues and orange and Nesting Chairs would go great in the quilt. The baby is due in July so I have a bit of time. Thanks for offering the giveaway! (And nice job on the sewing machine cover - it looks great).

pamela said...

I think I would take a page out of your book and make something strictly for me, since that is something I seldom do as well! =)

molcyk said...

I would love to make some covers foe stools in my kitchen along with pillows for my couch.

laura said...

LOVE the new line...congrats! I'd love to use your fabric for my first attempt at a small floorcloth for my living room entry. Wouldn't that be cute? thanks!

Karen L R said...

Wonderfully generous give-away!
I think I'd put together a really fun lap quilt to toss on our sofa in the living room.
Thanks for the chance, Laurie!

Pam said...

I love these fabrics! I feel in love with these at first sight and every time I see them I want them more. As for a project that I would use them for...I'm not sure. I do know that I would use them for me. I think I would probably display them in my sewing room for a bit before I use them. My fingers are crossed for good luck!!!!! jmichaelpike@aol.com

Brady said...

I'd use this great new fabric for quilts, quilts and more quilts!

Lisa Gapen said...

Would LOVE to use these fabrics to make pillows and accessories for my little sewing room- it's not big but it's working to be highly functional and terribly cute! Thanks-

Sooz said...

I would make a reading pillow, like the ones from my childhood, y'know, with "arms", it kinda looks like the top of comfy chair? I've been wanting to make one of those for ages, so I can sit up comfortably in my bed at night (when I'm not in the studio!) catching up on all my quilting/crafting blogs and flickr pools! Thanks!

Michelle T said...

I think I would make myself a new wallet...I love these colours!
michelletripper(at)yahoo(dot)ca

pbs said...

My mother lives on a lake with herons. I would make pillows or a throw for her. Beautiful colors.

nicole / Twitter: BTHM1 said...

I have some blue floral fabric that would match the cranes exactly so I would probably use them all to make my daughter a knot dress, with a new pattern I just got!

pattie said...

I need a small cover for my new phone and a lunch bag, this would be perfect.

Jennifer Ladd said...

Those prints would actually make a great little pillow for my newly-blue bedroom. We switched bedrooms when our new daughter came home, and I vowed to make this new room as cute as possible (I was never happy with the other bedroom). It's still a work in progress, but it's looking better every day.

Deb said...

A pillow for my corner chair in my bedroom...a chair for watching the birds out the window, knitting, reading, etc. Love my chair. It even has a tiny thread of orange running through it. The fabric would be perfect.

Jennifer said...

I would like to make a set of couch pillows with piping. I love Tufted Tweets, and I had never seen Nested Chairs. I love the semi-ironic statement of making a couch pillow out of material that depicts couches and chairs to begin with! The thought tickles me very much, and I've been itching to create this project.

Denny1600 said...

Love your sewing machine cover. I might make a pillow. Or a tote. Or a wall hanging. Or . . .

underthreefeet said...

Curtains for my new kitchen. i have been looking for the perfect fabric, I just found it.

Mrs Chronic-Shock said...

If I know myself, I would use it for another bag :)

Desi said...

Hmmmm, so many things to make, but I have actually been wanting to make a jazzy cover for my machine also; and I love yours, so I would copy yours. ;)
Thanks for the chance to win.
Desi

Andy said...

A sewing machine cover actually IS on my to-do list...

Thanks

dorothy said...

Wow! I love your fabric design!
I'd love to win it and I'd want to make pillows for sure!

Margaret said...

Wow, great fabric. I would love a pillow or even your super cute sewing machine cover...I have yet to make one and really need to.

Isisjem said...

it would have to be a pillow or two I think. I love this nesting fabric. It's so cute. I like the sewing machine cover too. If there was any left over from pillows I'd work it into a sewing machine cover.

Lee said...

I would love to make a cushion for my sisters sewing room chair and maybe a valence too for her window in there! thanks for the lovely giveaway.

Terri said...

oh please include me in this to. I have been dying to make a quilt for my little one with this since I saw heathers. Crossing fingers :)

Barb said...

First, I will make a tote for that ugly oxygen bottle I have to carry with me when I go shopping (the plain black one they gave me is bleh). Then a cute wall hanging or maybe a window valance for my 'studio' or maybe even both ;)

Andrea said...

Love the colors! I'd make myself a bag. A pillow and a baby quilt for a granddaughter. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

Peggy A. said...

Most definitely a pillow to perch on my new orange chair!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Orange and Aqua are my favorites!! I would definitely make a small quilt for my sun room!

Leigh said...

A wall hanging for my orange den! The colors are perfect!

Angelina S. said...

I sense a sewing machine cover similar to yours coming on! That's stellar!

Alisa said...

Definitely a wall hanging. Love looking at that darling fabric!

b78ayers said...

I absolutely love this fabric, especially the color combination, and would make a tote bag to haul my gym stuff and use it daily!

Amorette said...

that fabric is amazing, and the colors are great together- i would use it to make a fabric basket to store my goodies in!

joolee said...

pretty please pick me! orange and blue is a FAVORITE color combo of mine. that fabric is fabulous!! i'd make a pillow or a fun tote bag....fun possibilities...

Helene said...

well, my ironing board is in DESPERATE need of a new cover, and if I won, I'd use these drop-dead gorgeous fabrics to sew one up, and every time I'd iron something (no, not shirts! Fabrics!), I'd be smiling. The fabric just makes me smile. I love it!

Corinnea said...

At first I thought well, a pillow of course and then no, maybe a bag and then I thought it might be fun to wear it so, a skirt? Guess I'd have to actually have it to know....

Thanks for the chance!

Klemm Family said...

OMG, yay for giveaways!
I might use it for a coffee cup sleeve, or a maybe some of it put into a picture frame for art. I don't know. I'd definitely have to brood over it for awhile. **crossing fingers**
skklemm at gmail dot com

Stephanie C. said...

I would love to use it in a quilt for our living room. The colors are perfect!

Becky said...

Laurie - I do the same thing. I took time out from altering folks clothes the last couple of days to finish sofa cushion covers that sat cut out for at least a year and to stitch up a doggie bed for our new addition.

Thanks for the chance to win. I would have to marinate the ideas for a while if I won your fab fabric but it would definitely be something just for me!

Marcia W. said...

I love the orange and aqua combination of colors more than yellow/grey on your posts. If win, might surprise my mother with a pillow ( or pillow case) to go with her orange king-sized bed quilt that she is making. Aqua is her favorite color. Thanks for this lovely giveaway. mlwright29 (at)hotmail(dot) com

Debra said...

This fabric is begging to be made into a pillow for my sofa! My kindle needs a cover too.

Hollie said...

I love this fabric! I would so make placemats for our dining room table out of it!

mab said...

We just bought a house (tonight!) and I will have my own sewing room (swoon!), so I am in need of fabulous fabric to make fabulous accessories for my fabulous-to-be room! Thanks for the chance to enter!

Jennifer Annik Miller said...

OMG! Love, love, love your new line!! The colors are fantastic. I would use the fabric to make a funky patchwork wall hanging for my orange sewing room.

Ciara said...

I think I would make a book bag or some sort of air plane travel bag. The birds just need to be kept moving in some way.

Nat said...

Hi I just discovered you via print and pattern. I love your design - would make cushions for my living room sofa. I'm a fabric design wanna be not going anywhere at the moment, but still trying. My blog: www.thehomelyplace.blogspot.com.

Ashley said...

fabulous laurie! i definitely think that these fun little projects should sometimes take precedence over your list of to dos. everyone needs a quick and fun project!!

deserae said...

I would love to make a cute apron!

Jen said...

What a great giveaway! I'd LOVE to make some pillows with your sweet fabric:)

Val Miller said...

would totally make a cover for my e-reader ... and a pillow too if there was enough left over!!!

HouseMama Tess said...

I'd really love to make a piece of wall art/a hanging quilt to coordinate with the Tufted Tweets pillows I have planned!

Ulrike said...

These fabrics are so lovely. I probably would make them into something for hubbies corner in my sewing corner and maybe a cute tiny pillow for my sewing chair.

Ann said...

Guess this world needs more pillows because like so many others, the pillows on my couch are so tired that I would love to win and make some new ones. But I would leave enough for a small bag to carry around and show off the great fabric.

Melissa said...

Love your cover. It looks fab!

I have a {bit} of a love affair with aqua and orange, and I would plaster my entire house in these colors if hubby would let me! :-)
If I am lucky enough to win, I'd make a throw and matching pillow for the couch in my sewing room.

Spontaneous Threads said...

I would make an awesome bag, so I could take that fabric with me everywhere. It's beautiful.

Lesley Grainger said...

Laurie you know how much I loooove your work!! I would use these fabrics for Pillows, table cloth and chair backers. Would that look so cute!! Ok now I'm drooling:))

the Campfollower said...

I really like this collection, well any of your collections are awesome, but the teal and orange are just wonderful. I think I need to make a sewing machine cover too. I just got my Bernina back from the shop and the technician said it was the most dirty sewing machine she has seen in ages. Maybe a cover will keep some of the dust off.

ellesquare said...

i would totally do a pillow AND a little array of wall hoops to go on/over the loveseat in my front room.

cute machine cover!

Carrie said...

Well, because that fabric is in my favorite color, I will have a very hard time deciding what to make with it. But, I can see it becoming a cute hand bag for myself, or...

I'd make a pillow and maybe a little zippered pouch to give away to one of my knitting friends.

Thanks for the giveaway! The fabric is very cute...

I didn't think my sewing machine (janome MC6500) needed a cover, until I saw yours!

honestly, I would really love to reupholster some old antique chairs, and have coordinating pillows to go with.. (I know everyone else has said pillows too). Obviously, it'd look really good. but I can picture the chairs oh so fun. Thanks for just the idea of it

Oh, I love it! I would love to make a baby quilt or a kick-butt throw pillow for my bedroom. I might share it with my kids and let it out to the sofa on on occasion. :-)

I'd love a crazy cute quilted throw for our gazbo to enjoy while enjoying a coffee, and good book

Bessiemae said...

I'd likely make pillows. I have these colors in my bedroom, love them. :-)

Crimson Lily said...

My couch is in need of a new lap quilt, so, yeah, that's what I would make. Thanks!

This fabric is beautiful and the color scheme fits my new craft room decor just perfectly! I need a new pillow for my overstuffed chair, pincushion, sewing machine cover, inspiration board, and valances. If I can figure out some way to get all those projects out of a fat quarter set . . Well, at least it will be a great start! Thanks for the chance to win!

The fabric is spectacular and would add some fun to my Living room...pillows, a throw quilt...so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win some

Sally said...

A tote bag and notebook cover would look fab in this!

Colette said...

Oh my what a fantastic sewing machine cover! I just got a new quilting machine and it desperately needs a sewing machine cover and your fabrics match my sewing loft perfectly!

Judith said...

Such cute fabric! I would make a really fun beach bag with this and save all the scraps for mini-quilts for my friends. Thank you.

NoelP said...

I would give the fabric to my wife so she could make something beautiful with it, probably a bag of some kind. I could see some small items for her friends coming out of this too...

Judith said...

Oh I forgot to leave my email.. I love those long-legged birds and can't wait to make a fun beach bag if I am lucky enough to win. Thank you!

Bonnie said...

I would make a sewing machine cover if I win, I certaintly could use one. Great giveaway.
