Bright and Buzzy | Giveaway!

Tick tock, tick tock. I have been watching the clock and the calendar, anxiously awaiting the day that I could do the grand unveiling of Bright and Buzzy, one of two of my new collections for Robert Kaufman. And today is finally the day!

I have so many ideas swimming in my head for things to make from the collection. And even though it's perfect for kids, I can see so many uses for it for those who are just young at heart. (See how I artfully skirted calling myself old there? Nicely done if I don't say so myself...)

There are 6 fabrics in the collection and they have all just been released by Robert Kaufman so they should be making their way to stores soon. 
  • Buzzy bees in 3 fun colors. I was so happy to be able to do these in a more non-traditional palette than what you usually see for bees. 
  • Honeycomb in two shades
  • A full yard panel with one animal or item for each letter in the alphabet. 
  • And a full sized growth chart that goes up to 60" inches high. 

On the image above, the yard panel in the corner isn't to scale, I squished it down so it would all fit together in one little graphic.

\

Fun honeycomb selvage shapes


Attempted to take a picture of the yard alphabet panel and Fiona came to help. 


And then Dexter had to get in on the action. It totally looks like they're making out. Which is really inappropriate blog content but it was just too funny not to share. 


Wait...what, is that a whale under that tail? And a raccoon peeking out from behind that foot? 
I see all sorts of fussy cut opportunities for this panel. 
How adorable would pennant flags be to spell out a kiddo's name?!
This weekend I'm going to be making a zipper pouch with my Z. I can't wait. 

A close up of one of the owls from the growth chart panel. You can get an idea of what the whole thing looks like in the graphic at the top of the post.  I think the owl on the swing is my favorite. :) 
Or maybe the bunny. 


Bzzzz! Bee and honeycomb goodness. I keep thinking "bee-still my beating heart". 
Guess my mind is on Valentine's Day!


Thanks for wading through all of the pictures! As a reward, here's a shot of the giveaway goodies. A FQ set of all the fabrics + full alphabet panel and the growth chart. 
  • I'd love to hear what kind of ideas you have for the fabric!
  • Post your comment here before the morning of Tuesday 1/29/13. 
  • Make sure you leave me a way to contact you. 
  • And as always, international entries are welcome!


I'll post the winner (and hopefully my little Z zipper pouch) on Tuesday morning. Good luck!


p.s. And if I wasn't already spastically excited about Bright and Buzzy, there's ANOTHER collection to share. I am beyond excited and bouncing off the walls over here with glee. (And I might have had one too many cups of coffee today perhaps...) 

I'll do a full post about Holiday Sweet Tweets (and a giveaway) once I get my yardage shipment, but here's a few sneak peek shots. It's also just been released by Robert Kaufman and should be shipping to stores soon. Birds. Peppermint tufted ottomans. Sassy couches and striped chairs. (Insert big dorky happy dance here!)

OMG!!! I'd love to make a baby quilt out of this, but I love that honeycomb so much it might stay at my house to make a sunny summer quilt for me!

sally said...

There are so many fun & different things that could be done with this fabric. It would be fun to make a real simple blanket with just the alphabet - you know one that could be made quickly and used on the couch. I would love to make a honey comb & bees blanket or wall hanging. They are just so cute and adorable. the bees & honey comb would make a really fun table runner or picnic blanket. Let's not forget making a fun simple summer tent for kids to read under. There are just so many fun things to try. sallybradley at gmail dot com

Katie said...

Love the alphabet panel!

katie.muirhead (at) gmail (dot) com

kelly said...

i need that alphabet yardage!! what a cute baby quilt that'd make.

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

This would be so perfect for my daughter's room - I already have your donkeys in wellies fabric made into a baby quilt. The honey bees would be so perfect for her "big girl" bed.
I am completely enamored with the growth chart, too!

Adrianne said...

What a fun bright collection! I really love the honeycomb prints. Thanks for the chance to win :-)

jenni said...

Gosh, I just love everything you do! I'll probably hoard this for a while because it will be too cute to give away in gifts to my friends' babies. ;)

Laura said...

oh my! So adorable! I love the bees! I would make a cute quilt for my grand daughter but I am sure she needs a bee dress, too!

pippirose said...

I'd make a baby quilt, as my daughter is expecting her first.

gccmom said...

What fun fabric. I have three grands. This would make some lovely fun things for them.

Amy Friend said...

Oh goodness, I can't wait to see more of the Holiday Tweets! I love the cardinals. The bee prints are all so adorable too. I have a soft spot for bees because my dad kept bee hives when I was little. Clearly the panel is waiting for fussycutting!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

This would be awesome for a nursery set! Quilt, diaper stacker, burp cloths!

MBMathis said...

Those are awesome! I love the honeycomb a ton. Hope I win!

Brooke Boon said...

I think some notebook covers or a mini quilt would be awesome with those!!!

Gretchen said...

OMGosh I want that alphabet fabric panel for curtains in my toddler school, they are just adorable, and the bees are pretty cute too! Pick me pick me!!

Gretchen said...

Ooooppps forgot to add my email, apparently I was too excited!! tokar4@comcast.net

Chris S said...

Gosh it would be hard to decide! A quilt, wallhanging, baskets, purses, anything for my grand daughters!!

Maribeth said...

I would make a quilt for my nephew. Hes turning 2 in March! It'd be perfect!

The Tildy Spot said...

I've had a quilt design in my sketch book for some time now that would be perfect for this fabric.

Brooke Mollyd said...

I am in LOVE with these new designs. I'll be getting that honeycomb for sure! Contact: bshenson1@facebook.com

Samantha said...

Love love love the panel! I'd make some decor for the Montessori school my kids go to.

Jeanne Gwin said...

This may be a duplicate but I don't see my entry. Mr. Gwin says he has to have a TV quilt and pillow from this fabric. He raises bees and harvests the honey from them. He insists that I must win. LOL Thanks for this fun giveaway. Very cute fabric.

Karol said...

I'd love to make string bags out of these fabrics, they would be really cute! karolherink@gmail.com

Cecilia said...

I think the bees and honeycomb fabric would make a great tabletop per and a quilt for a young girl's bedroom. Congratulations on your new collections. Thanks for the chance to win.

Joelle said...

Hmmm I'd like to make a bee dress for a very special little girl

kel0123 said...

In love with the bees! So cute!

Amanda K said...

I love the bees and the panel. I just put a iSpy quilt top together and the letter panel would be a nice addition to that. Love your work!

Amys Crafty Shenanigans said...

Wow - the best line yet and I loved the chairs and the donkeys and Brrrr... This is fabulous! Those bees are the bees knees so I would HAVE TO make myself a sun hat for when I do the gardening in my backyard. I grow veg. amycav at hotmail dot com

wipgirl said...

This is really great! I love the colours - rather than breaking it up in a pink palette and a blue palette, having it all neutral is really fantastic.

Also? The peppermint ottomans are BRILLIANT.

scottylover said...

Oh, this is too cute! We have a recruiter at work who is going to be a dad for the first time in April. I'd love to make a quilt for him to use. This doesn't look too "baby"-ish for him!

Sandy A

Wendy D. P. said...

Love, love, love! These would make the cutest nursery accessories!

emedoodle said...

This line is so amazing! I think it'd be especially awesome to line pouches with - I love using a print that's an unexpected WOW for the inside. Also it'd be great for fun drawstring bags for my girl, she'd get a kick out of all the little sweet designs!

LethargicLass said...

these would be great for summer placemats :) Unless actual bees used them for camo... that would suck LOL!

Cheryl said...

That is an adorable fabric line. I see those fabrics as a cute bedroom set for my niece using some for bunting over the window covering, a growth chart on the wall, and a fussy-cut quilt to match. By the way, your kitties are adorable!!!

The Calico Cat said...

My son is 4, so I am immediately thinking of doing an ABC quilt for him.

Tomilu said...

My small group in our guild is called the "Queen Bees". This fabric is just perfect to make purses for all 8 of us for Christmas this year. Also would be perfect to make vests to wear to guild meetings and road trips.

Anna said...

That alphabet panel is amazing!!!

Penny said...

My new craft room to be is going to be yellow and grey so I am very excited by the yellow and grey bees and the honeycomb! Love the quirky birds too.

Pam said...

I so love your fabric designs! What would I make with the bee's? With spring and summer just around the corner the possibilities are endless.

Lisa said...

I love the panel, I can see a great baby quilt. It could be used for years, they wouldn't outgrow it. Love Love Love the Bees!

Gunda B.-S. said...

There are 1000 and one idea what to do with adorable fabric. Thinking to make a little quilt for my grandaughter and maybe a pillowcase as well. She is 5 and will love that

Thank you for doing this great Give-Away

Gunda

Lisa Marie said...

The fabrics are adorable! The alphabet squares would be great for fun, cute and educational kids' items like soft books or quilts. I'd also sneak some of that bee fabric into scrappy quilts for adults -- that would add an element of surprise.

~Michelle~ said...

Seriously, I'm surprised there haven't been more growth charts in non-barf inducing children's fabrics. Hopefully you've started a trend!

barbara woods said...

a quilt.thanks for the giveaway

DianeY said...

So cute. I'll have to think about the panel, because I don't have any kids around any more. But the honeycomb & bees would be wonderful to add to my stash! Love the colors

Mary D said...

I can see busy bee book bags for the preK class I have adopted. The wonderful kids can store their colors and coloring book and other books. A pillowcase to use when reading would be cute to match.

Mary D

Rachel Booth said...

Wow! I LOVE this new line!! The bees and honeycombs are ADORABLE!!

I think that they'd make the cutest little shorts set, or stacking rings! :)

mrsrachelsbooth{at}gmail{dot}com

Debi Heller said...

I'm seeing an apron with a potholder, on a table with placemats, and a cute set of napkins to match. Wait...what about a bread basket in the middle of the table with a napkin tucked inside. And some hot pads. Maybe kitchen towel with one of the animals (or two) appliqued on it. Or maybe I'll just go with a quilt. ;)

Erica said...

I am so excited for these. My daughter loves bees and she loves green, so I am going to have to make her a dress with that green bee fabric. Wonderful as always!

Janet of Gar said...

Love the bees (also love your kitties). This would be perfect to make pillowcases for my parents since their initials are both B. B. and they go by "the two Bs."

sera fina said...

Would absolutely love to win some of that awesome bee and honeycomb fabric for my little purses.

Jan said...

A baby quilt, for sure. I love this new line.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Oh wow!!!!! I would love to win this fabric...it is adorable! I would put it in a throw for my grandson to snuggle up in.

Courtney said...

Oh, this is so exciting! I can see tons of possibilities, but with a baby on the way, that growth chart for the nursery would be the first thing i would make. I have ideas for some type of log cabin quilt with the alphabet tiles in the center of each block. I can't wait to see pictures of your next line, too - those peppermint tufts are killing me!

Donna said...

O this is so cute! I can see the most adorable baby quilts out of this fabric! And onesies with their initial mongrammed on the front! Love it!

Gina said...

How cute! I see baby quilts, totes, pouches and wall hangings.

GrandmaDe said...

These are so cute! I love your cat!!

Erin @ Missy Mac Creations said...

Loving the two new collections! The bees are super cute and that alphabet panel is drool-worthy. YAY! :)

Ashley Malcolm said...

This collection made me smile so much! I am a hobby beekeeper, so anything 'bees' catches my eye. I would make a blouse or sassy skirt out of the honeycomb or bees. And I would make a matching outfit for my little 8 month old girl. The cute alphabet would make a fun 'card' game or fabric stacking blocks. And I'd wrap the growth chart around a tackboard.

Ashley

Rachelle said...

My youngest would love a pillowcase out of that.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Such great fabric! I think a soft quilted headboard covered with a combination of the panel and some fabric would be perfect for my granddaugher's move to her big bed. P.S. The cardinals in the next collection are perfect!

Cristin said...

I think the bee fabric would make a cute little girl dress - or atleast use it for the bodice, or skirt part!
And the growth chart is freaking fabulous!!! You're such a great designer!

Thanks for the chance to win! xo

Phyllis said...

Love the fabric! I think a small quilt would be perfect!

Missy Shay said...

I love that material! My mom's friends all call her Bea, so the material with the B and bee would be perfect for her. Maybe a quilted wallhanging?
missysaprons@gmail.com

ledamewood said...

I love this fabric. I would make something with my husband in mind with the bee and honeycomb fabrics. He is a beekeeper, so placemats or table cover for our patio table might be on the agenda. For the growth chart and alphabet, we have a grand daughter who will be 2 in March, and she has a baby sister due in April, so those would definitely be made up for them. Thanks for the chance to win.

patty.kim said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I would use the alphabet panel to make a quiet book for my little one.

Deborah said...

I love all of your fabric - but this collection is even better than the rest - the bees are gorgeous! I would make a wallhanging for a childs room, and some fun bags to give as gifts. Thanks for the chance!

Jess said...

Wow! I adore that honeycomb print! I've been meaning to make a height chart for my kids so I would totally love to win this! Thanks for keeping it fresh and bright as always :o)

Designer Jules said...

LOVE!!! We call my son "bee" and I would love the bee fabic to put on the back of a quilt, with your Urban Circus fabric on the front!!!

Lee said...

I just completed my first bee keeping glass - eek this line is adorable!! Love your designs!

Suburban Stitcher said...

Love that bee fabric...would be SO cute for making some little drawstring bags for my knitting!

rachael {imagine gnats} said...

oh, SO many ideas about the bright and buzzy!!! but then i got all distracted by the tweets :) i'm pretty excited about the idea of the zip ouch with the z though... and i think we all know i can't resist a raccoon!

SunflowerSkies said...

One of my friends is a beekeeper!! These are great bright fabrics. Would be great to make placemats out of!

Patti said...

You've done it again! Another fantastic fabric line just begging to be used in a child's room. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kathryn said...

I have a great grandson due any day now. I'd love to give him something when he is ready to learn his letters.

blocksandmore said...

B is for Bee binding to make a quilt Buzz : )
Love the entire collection

Hannah said...

I love these fabrics! I would love to make a quilt with them!

Ellen said...

I would love to make a baby quilt out of this...would be sooo cute!

Jo said...

Grandkids, grandkids, grandkids! I think they need some of those lego holders before DIL looses her mind. Love the fabrics!

Tamie said...

Wow. I love both these collections. I'd love to give them a try.

Ruth said...

I have a friend who keeps bees and this would make the PERFECT little wall hanging for her little boy (who is not quite 2). I'm thinking a growth chart wall hanging with the ABC's done in a coordinating big boy quilt (he's transitioning from the crib this summer) with the honey comb for sashing. LOVE this fabric.

Emily LeBaron said...

LOVE the honeycombs! Pretty sure I'd do a baby quilt with the alphabet panel- maybe make it into a stroller blanket of some sort...

Laura said...

I love these! I would love to make a baby quilt or some pillows!

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

Oooh, love the Honeycomb!!! It would make a great zippered pouch with the B panel block and the bees on the inside!

I LOVE the sneak peek of your next line!! Gorgeous colours.

Poppyprint said...

Both of your new collections are super fun and totally you! I love cardinals and cardinals perched on designer chairs even more. I'll be buying some honeycomb for my yellow stash for sure and I think the bees would make really stylish threadcatchers for our next quilt show boutique. Thanks Laurie, for always being so generous with your readers! Congratulations!

Clover said...

The Honeycomb fabric is so cute! It is unlike most fabrics I see too. I would love to make a fun quilt for my kids.

supersara20 said...

Hmm, might have to do a busy book for my niece.

allierae said...

Ohhh this is so cute! I would love to make my toddler niece a blanket out of the alphabet panel and many other fun things from the bright FQs!

Bunny said...

Oh wow, that fabric is so cute!

Fran said...

Wow! Two more great fabric lines - no-one does clever & cute animal fabric like you, in ways that are so grown-up & completely not cutesy in the sweet sense. I think what I'm trying to say is that they're perfect for everybody (no-one can 'put a bird on it' quite like you!). Thanks for the chance to win.

Kelli said...

Okay, first of all, Holiday Tweets, how SWEET!! I love it!! And.. the bees, they're just perfect. I have a new project on the horizon that I might need some of the grey bee fabric and yellow honeycomb for.. *swoon*

JaneB said...

OK you had me at bees and yellow! My best friends in the world are a couple where he is a beekeeper and she is allergic to bees. She is a quilter and this fabric will bee so perfect for something for them. Pillows? a small table topper or a quilt for their bed. Totally hypoallergenic.

Little Island Quilting said...

As always, fab designs. What would I make? A quilt I'm afraid!

Reena said...

haha my cat always is right there when any fabric is being put on a flat surface too! Love that turquoise and the nice bright green. I don't know what I would make but it would be fun! Thanks for the chance to win!

heart of charnwood said...

Wow, those are both gorgeous, but those bees, sooooo cute- you have been busy!

jednoiglec said...

I'm Holiday Sweet Tweets type:) but these would be perfect for little baby gifts. Probably I won't be original if I write that alphabet panel is great for baby quilt and bees fabrics would be wonderful sashing. Although, the honeycomb fabrics would be perfect for my works for adults - I love the colors of it!

Yana said...

Lovely cats:) wanna hug them so much:))

And awesome fabric! Maybe it's time for my new apron and storage bins with words CARS and LEGO in the kids room? thanks for chance!:)

mary mahoo said...

Love this fabric line,,,and the next. I'd be making a new quilt for the grandson,,,pillows for me,,,obviously I would have to buy more to make everything that's spinning around in my head! Thanks for the chance to win.

memmens said...

Wow this is lush, love that honeycomb print and the growth chart, all so awesome.
I'd love to use the panel in a soft book or playmat for a babies and small ones - think it would be awesome!

Susanne said...

Oh my this is soooo cute :) I would make a little quilt for my little sister (6y). But I would keep some of the honeycomb for me - love it!
Susanne

heartforhandmade said...

Wow! These new fabrics looks so great! Congrats. I would love to do a toy pouch for my nephew with these fabrics. He always comes to visit and it will be good to have a pouch organizer for his toys.

Sarah PingsAndNeedles said...

Wow Laurie! This is a super line ... I'm just out of hospital after some icky surgery and this was my first blog catch up in months! My surname is Witherby so the bee has always been something our family sneaks into things. My niece is getting married in July on the beach (brrr!) and I am down for bunting duty. This would be fantastic for it, the blue and the yellow, so perfectly beachy ... I would love to win this. and well done you for such a lovely line :)

José said...

This is just gorgeous!! The bees would make a lovely shirt for my little boy, or a tote bag for myself, or pillows on the sofa....I can't decide yet :)
Thanks for the chance to win!

Gill said...

Wow! I'd make a playmat or a floor pillow!

linda said...

i think i would just sit and look at it for a while it is gorgeous .......as are the cats :))

Louise Ambrosi said...

These latest prints are stunning - love the vibrant colours! I'm thinking cute lil' messenger bags and a circle skirt for my daughter. Thanks for a great giveaway!

anna dorothy said...

So so cute. I would love to win this fabric. I have twin boys and have been contemplating a growth chart. And the alphabet panel I could see fussy cutting for a soft book with some of the other fabrics included..aaand the honeycomb is for mama. Thanks for the giveaway!

Annadorothy(at)gmail(dot)com

Anna said...

I have a brand new nephew who will obviously be needing hand made things! Thanks for the give away!

two hippos said...

perfect for a child's quilt and the bee's I'd love for a summer picnic bag. Honey comb for napkins..... so many possibilities.

Bec said...

Oh my, these are just gorgeous! I am thinking cushions for my kids' beds and library bags. jeffbec24@yahoo.com.au

Betty said...

I have 2 great-nieces who would love a big play mat with this wonderful grouping - how clever! Oh, and I really like (for me) your new line with the happy birds - can't wait.

craftykat said...

I would have to make a quilt for my twin nephews who we recently gave a bee table which my husband made and painted! I think they also need a bee quilt!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

Wow! I love the bees and honeycomb. What couldn't you make with these??

Chiska said...

Oh my! I love both collections. The first thing I thought was that the honeycomb would make a cute skirt with been trim on the bottom....or vice versa. So great!

Juliana Colombo said...

lovely both collection!!! congrats!!
with "Bright and Buzzy" I'll do some bagpack for my kids. With the full sized growth chart I'll do a wallhanging!!

Tammy said...

What really cute fabrics. I know exactly what I would make from them. fromt h alphabet panel I would make a quilt and use some of the other prints for the borders & backing for my new great nephew. Now frot he growth panel I would make it up as a quilt and use the otehr fabrics also as backing and borders & binding. I would present the quilt to my great neice's mom. She could hang it up to measure Chloe with and record evertything with a permanent marker and then they could keep it as a memory blanket. Chole is growing so fast they can hardly keep her in pants that are long enough for those skinny lil long legs. If their was any fabric left of the beees and honeycomb I could make her some cute little ruffel legged pants and a top to match.
conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

Laurie said...

WOW! These are awesome! I would love to fussy cut a bunch of those alphabet letters to make a quilt. SOO cute!

Nessy Wilson said...

OH MY GOD! I am in love with this collection, the bees and honeycombs are right up my street. I would love to make a paper pierced honeycomb quilt with them! I'd also love to make a dress out of the bee fabric, I think it would love amazing for summer!

Linda Nelson said...

These fabrics would make wonderful stacking baskets for any room, especially a nursery!

Margaret said...

Another (2!) unbelievable collections from you!! Congrats on both bees & birds. Love them!! With the buzzy collection, I have in mind to cut out the alphabet blocks and surround them with bees & honeycombs, scattering the alphabet over the front and back of a quilt. The honeycomb fabrics are wonderful - I could use them in TONS on projects! Keep up the great work!! and thanks for the giveaway! mags721 at skybest dot com or allenmg721 at gmail dot com

Thanks for great fabrics you create!!! I would make little helper aprons and little purses from the bee/honeycomb combination. Thank you for the fun fabrics and giveaway.

Anonymous said...

Unbelievable inspiration, need a new tray cloth, tea cozy and pin cushion, the buzz of the bees does it for me, thnx a mill, Pam

Denise Mitchell said...

So many ideas for this panel. QUILT !!!!QUILT!! QUILT!!!!!!

Lotte Biondi said...

I see using this lovely bee fabric for a baby quilt. I'd do lots of fussy cutting for a backing filled with applique--in other words, a beautiful quilt on both front and back.

I also LOVE the cardinals.

Laurie Churchill

leslieanne said...

Oh I just love bees. I would make something for my kitchen with that lovely bee fabric. Trim some cheery yellow dishtowels, do up some little quilty hotpads and make a fridge magnet or two. Sigh. Such lovely bees! jeepgirl19700@yahoo.com

Michelle @ Barabooboo said...

Ohhh! I LOve these, but especially the alphabet panel. I would most DEFINITELY take the panel, and cut a square out of each letter and then mod podge each one onto an artists canvas (from the dollar store) and then mount all 26 on my daughter's bedroom wall...the colours totally work and I think that would fill the wall nicely!
michelletripper(at)yahoo(dot)ca

sara said...

so so cute! I love the pennet flag idea for my niece! and a matching quilt to go with!! You could use the rest for random shaped handmade washcloths - how fun would that be - learning the alphabet in the bath!

Stephanie C. said...

This could make a great quilt and quilted growth chart for a shower gift for a lucky mama.

Kara-Kara Pumpkineater said...

LAURIE!!! Shut up, these are so effing darling!!! Oh gosh...well, after I rolled around in them for a good week I would probably make some placemats for my nieces and nephew. And something for myself out of the bees. My gosh, those cute little bees!!! :)

Kaelin said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Soo darling and since my husband and I are trying to start a family, I would totally fussy cut letters from that panel and hang them in frames for a nursery!

knottygnome said...

I really like the honeycombs! i bet they'd make a great potholder set. i really love the birds n' couches too. :-)

kbzelazny said...

My mind is spinning-I love this line! The bees and honey comb are fantastic! I love the panel as a front or back for a baby quilt. I might have to get 2 of those-one to keep whole and one to cut up. Thanks and congratulations-you're on a roll!

Margaret said...

I love this fabric. I have a kids quilt pattern that I have been wanting to make forever. It requires strips of bugs in a line for part of the design. Either of the bees or the birds will be perfect. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with me. I can't wait to get my hands on this fabric. I also think I need a kitchen redo and bees could be buzzing all around while I cook. Past holders, towels, new curtains, chair cushions and of course a mug rug or two.

StudioCherie said...

I have to say, Bright and Buzzy is a fabulous line. Great work! I would make a growth chart for sure - I know a family with a 4 year old who would love it. The bee prints would go into eyeglass cases. And the Alpabet? I think your idea of zip pouches is perfect.

thorngrove said...

These are both delightful!
My big sister loves bee stuff and her birthday is coming up, so some sort of bag would an excellent gift.

Connie Borth said...

Absolutely love the alphabet panel and fabrics to match it. With a new grandbaby coming late summer, what a beautiful quilt that I could make for it and then also to include a growth chart to go with it. what a wonderful gift it would be.

B Greene said...

The possibilities are endless with this fabric! I think the bee stripes would make some wonderful Hexie-flowers, but I would have to go for a baby quilt first. Congratulations!!

Marcia R said...

You rock! What's not to love about every single collection you come up with? Love the bees... I have a friend who has bees and makes her own honey, so I would just have to make her an oven mitt and dish towels! I did that at Christmas with your llama fabric for my friend who raises llamas and alpacas, and they totally flipped. Thanks for making me so popular with my friends. :-)

I'd make tote bags and mug rugs!

Ooh, I'd love to make prairie-style dresses for my girls with tiers alternating between bees and honeycombs. So cute!

Miss Jean said...

Oh, I love this collection! My quilt group is bee crazy so I'm sure I'd make something for them with it. Thanks for the opportunity!

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

What a cute collection! I'd make pillows with it and a baby quilt. Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

Allison C said...

Love these collections! I'm expecting so I need to whip out a bunch of baby items. This fabric would be perfect! I would make lots of bibs, burp clothes, and little blankies. Maybe even a set of building blocks.

ninjadesigns said...

okay THAT is cute. i think the bees and the honeycomb would make an adorable tea set!

jenny said...

It is SO adorable! A baby blanket with the panel, definitely. And then something for my self with a little of that honeycomb fabric- it is just too perfect! Congrats on another great line!

Jennifer Ladd said...

I think the bee and honeycomb fabrics would make a cool combo for a purse!

I would like to make some shorts for my grandson from the bee fabric and use some squares from the panel to make pockets!
These fabrics are wonderful!

Ande said...

My good friends just had their second child. I made them a quilt for the first and I need to make a second, that is what I would use this for of course. I would use the honey comb to make placemats for my BFF who keeps bees.

Fran said...

I'd make a picnic quilt, and maybe some cute goodies for the kitchen.

Dana said...

cute, cute, cute, cute, cute!!! I would have to make a happy quilt out of those fun fabrics! I cannot wait to get my hands on some and some of those cutie pie birdies too!

whitneymakes said...

That bee fabric is adorable! As is the bird fabric- both animals are a current obsession for me!

sewVery said...

First off, I love your fabrics! I'd probably make my daughter and son a special pillowcase each using their letters from the alphabet panel pieced together with the bee fabrics. I'd also have to figure out something to make my husband's aunt who is a beekeeper! Thanks!

Kristy said...

LOVE that panel! Too cute! This would be a fun collection to use to make new curtains and an alphabet chart for our homeschool classroom! :) Thanks for the chance!

frozenMandMs said...

The first thought that popped in my mind was baby quilt. It seems like lots of people are thinking the same thing. The alphabet panel would also be cute made into little pillows spelling out a child's name. So many possibilities.

Beach Angel said...

Adorable fabrics. You have my mind hopping around, thinking of all the things I could make with it.

Jayme said...

oooo, baby quilt in deed!!!! LOVE!!!! Thanks for the giveaway! I LOVE your fabric designs!

Ann said...

Cute! But also that honeycomb is super for so many things. Love it.

Sue said...

Knitting project bags. Knitters are busy bees, ya know:)

Brittany Evans said...

Laurie I absolutely ADORE your fabric lines. They are so ORIGINAL. I mean where can I get birds, ottomans, and upholstered chairs in one fabric? Love it! I would so LOVE to win. I'm making plans for that alphabet panel cut up and strung on sting with clothes pins on the wall of my daughters room. Darling! Keep up the good work!!

Zamiel said...

oh my goodness this is so adorable! I love bees AND my neighbor is having a little boy in a few months so this would be perfect for a little baby alphabet quilt I think!

Best way to contact me at gmail is Zamiel! I think you can decode that ;)

Sewbig said...

Love these fabrics! Baby quilt is an obvious project and I already have a baby in mind. Great growth chart panel and alphabet panel. Thanks for the chance to win.

Heather B said...

I love this fabric it makes me think of my hometown! I hope that one day my daughter can BEE an Academy Bumblebee (my husband is in the army so it's a wish that we make it back to the area one day). I would make my daughter a cute ruffle butt sun suit or make myself a market tote! Thanks for the chance to win!!

MellieWo said...

My son is learning his letters and it would be awesome to do a quilt with the bees. He always points out the bees in stories. This is a lovely collection. Thanks!

LochKnitsMonster said...

Love these! I absolutely need to make a baby quilt out of the alphabet panel and either a bag or a throw pillow or a set of napkins and placemats out of the green bumblebee fabric for my friend who loves bees and green is her favorite color.

Jane@Buzzmills said...

Oh my goodness! I love thesefabrics!! I can totally see some baby stuff...quilts and such and then with the alphabet panel...something for the kiddos...not sure what, but something to help with letter recognition. I love the honeycomb. Thanks for the opportunity! bailjane(at)hotmail(dot)com

Andrea Lui said...

I'm thinking a reversible baby quilt with the panels - one side with the growth chart (so that you can measure baby as they grow!) and the other side with the alphabet panel, interspersed with squares from the other fabrics so baby can learn the alphabet while spending tummy time on the quilt!

stampmeup said...

Wow! I so excited to see these fabrics. We raise honeybees and I'm always looking for bee related fabric to decorate my quilt shop: Sweet Quilt-n-Bee Shoppe! I can foresee some great quilts, hot pads, gift baskets, etc. etc. etc for these fabrics. Thanks for a chance to win!!

Fran said...

Ah ! ....a very adorable baby quilt ! But for me those bees would make the perfect summer gardening hat !
What a wonderful fabric collection....thanks for the
giveaway !

Heather A said...

Bees and honeycomb! What a welcome and fresh fabric design. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! And I'd love to make a child's quilt with the alphabet panel and a very practical wall hanging with the growth chart. But those bees and honeycombs ... a set of placemats and/or table runner for me!

Stacy said...

I love the bees! Would make a perfect baby quilt.

WandaFish said...

As always, love, love, LOVE!!
Where to start? Quilt? Tote bags? Kids rucksacks or adorable little dresses and ruffled shorts?
Thanks for the giveaway!

Jessica said...

You mean "bee-ting" heart, right? :)

Love all of these!

SewSuzie said...

Gorgeous as all your fabric designs are. Maybe a tunic top using a combination of prints.

Tanya said...

Adorable! I would use the letter panel for a bunting, The bees would make sweet summer hats!

Mommy like Whoa said...

Ever since I was a little kid, my nickname has been Busy Bee, so you can imagine my joy and excitement at this collection! I am picturing my tiny little one in an adorable spring time maxi dress (and maybe a adorable little zippered "fancy" pen pouch for me!)And the growth chart you have is BEYOND adorable! I could see me getting in lots of use with that, since it matches Abbey's bedroom to a T! I'm going to wish myself luck. :) Have a lovely day sorting through the comments! <3

Conniegereffi said...

What an adorable spring/summer quilt the honeycomb & bee fabric would make.

Melissa said...

Nice!

Beth said...

I think placemats would be darling in these fabrics! My nieces and nephews would be kept busy spotting cute stuff, while I would love to eat from a bee-youtiful placemat myself.

Sarah_L_N said...

I would leave the panels whole and have them as wall hangings, my little boy is starting to get interested in letters! Not sure what I would do with the rest, maybe cushions for his room!

Michigan Gal said...

Adorable fabric! I have a brand new (and first) grandson and these would be wonderful for him. I've been dreaming of ways to invent a play area for him as he grows, including a book center. Fabric always plays a part in my dreams!

KatieQ said...

The whole collection is bright and fun. I love the growth chart and alphabet panel. They are perfect to make up for a baby shower. I have a friend who is a bee keeper. I would make a lap quilt for her.

giddy99 said...

A baby quilt, although, I need those bees to make an apron for my aunt!

PamOFlynn said...

I LOVE the new designs! I would make a quilt for my new grandson with the alphabet panel and little outfits for my granddaughters, who are three, with the bee fabric! ADORABLE! The Sweet Tweets is also wonderful...can't wait!

ELNM said...

Absolutely fabulous! Makes me think of summer, and a great picnic blanket/quilt. And cardinals on ottomans - oh, my!!!! Thanks for the chance!

I love the new prints! I think it would be awesome to use the letter print to make a children's pocket organizer, with the letters cut out for the pockets on a bright solid backing.

Oh my goodness, I love Bee fabrics...because my daughter-in-law is a bee-lover so my two grandaughters are Little Bee and Baby Bee. I could easily see: dresses, skirts, an art smock, a purse, a child's quilt...

bee said...
