I love strips. Log cabins especially. I think those fabrics would be a cute fall skirt or dress for Katie. Glad to hear you had a great summer.

love the DSQ 9 quilt! Love the fabrics! I think a patchwork pillow or baby quilt may be in order if I was the winner : )


Love the Arcadia fabrics you used & dont remember ever seeing that line
I'm thinking a zigzag quilt...or maybe pinwheels ...

Love that little quilt you made.

I have lots of solids around here now; I'd probably add the Arcadia to make a very mod type quilt.

Mary Grace McNamara

I'd probably make a bag with the strips, or maybe a table runner or topper. First I'd just leave them alone and look at them for a while though!

Love the doll quilts both sent and received.



I love Arcadia! I would make a stacked coins quilt with it.


I love working with strings. I would turn them into a string quilt of some sort. Since they are already cut it would go so quickly!:)


I saw your quilt in the group and just loved it, but did not make the connection between it and your blog (I am so ridiculous sometimes!) That said your quilt is just lovely. I love the colors and the way you showed off the fabrics in that block. The one you received was one of my favs too!


I'm thinking I would make a scrappy journal cover or a cushion cover from these yummy fabrics.

Great doll quilt, Sheree! I love how the quilting shows up so clearly on the pieced back. It's so charming.


I made my Mom some kitchen accessories out of the little stash of arcadia that I had - I'd probably make a few more goodies for her christmas present if I were to win!

Thanks for the chance!

I'm sure your doll quilt partner will love the quiltlet you made..it is darling!
I like the Arcadia line, but have not worked with it, and would love all those strippies. I think I'd use them in a purse of somekind. Mix in some linen as well then I'd make a coin quilt with the rest. Thanks for entering me.


So nice to have you back! I hope your summer was fantastic!

The fabrics you have put together are gorgeous as usual... I would love to win and I dream about making lots of patchwork pillows with them...

i still havent used the arcadia i got from you a while ago! im working on log cabins so arcadia strips would be fabulous...also thinking of joining the hexigon band wagon, so strips would work fo rthat too! love your Doll quilt!!

Sarah ~ Magnolia Surprise

I'm thinking that a patchwork pillow for my craft room/office/granddaughter playroom would be nice. And maybe some little gift bags!

I love your quilt and the way the colors work together! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!


Oooh! I'd be tempted to try a log cabin quilt or a strip quilt like you did!


Oooh love this fabric range, what to make, what to make. A coin quilt, or maybe a square in a square, what about a strip quilt or a log cabin, bento box, a half log cabi,.......what is a girl to do.......Thank you for sharing.


Love your new doll quilt! Great fabrics! I would definitely put the arcadia stripes to good use as part of a string quilt! I just learned how to paper piece and and dying to make one!

Katie B

Oh, goodness. I love Arcadia! Your doll quilts are gorgeous (love last year's too!). I recently finished up a quilt using Arcadia, and I'd love to make another quilt using this hard-to-find fabric!

Here's the link:


Yummy! That little red and white quilt is just adorable, and the basket is so cool, you lucky girl!


I've been on a pillow kick lately, so a couple of cushion covers are in order.


How beautiful are these prints? As soon as I saw the quilt you made with them I thought: thats the way to go: a strip quilt or perhaps a bright cheerful bento box. Love love love.

Paula L.

I would love to make a stacked coin quilt; the prints are lovely!
Thank you for the giveaway!

Hi Sheree! I've been really enjoying the Arcadia i got from you a few months back. I've gotten one of the projects posted and I'll have more in the next week. awesome fabric. http://frivolousnecessity.blogspot.com/2010/08/busy-posting-day-some-finishes-finally.html

Charmaine Taylor

I really love that Arcadia line of fabrics. I would pair them with some Kona solids and make a quilt for my guest bedroom.


Aren't those lovely, I'd make a couple of fun fall throw pillows for the living room!

Lucky you receiving the Aunty Cookie quiltie, much coveted indeed!

About Me

  • Hello! Welcome and Thank You for stopping by my blog! Here, I share a bit about how I Live, what makes me Laugh, what I Love and things I Create! I am a chemist by training (I have a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry), but instead of mixing up chemicals in a lab, I spend my days mixing up fabrics to create lovely clothing and accessories! When my daughter was born, my desire to climb the corporate ladder was succumbed by my desire to mother, so I hung up my labcoat and resigned from my job. I miss my days in the lab, but I am thoroughly enjoying my new job as a pattern and clothing designer and maker of lovely things! I am launched a new line of contemporary sewing and quilting patterns and I run an online fabric shop as well as a small online boutique where I sell my handmade goods. Here in this space, I share bits of my days, things I love and of course talk way too much about fabric and design.

My Shops

  • Be sure to stop by my website to see all my handmade goods available for sale in the boutique, as well as a host of fabrics, patterns, yarn and more available in the creativity shop!
