A treat for you!

 Ok, I am late to get this going, but late is better than never. I have a little treat for you. I have 2 tiny fabric packs for you. Good Fortune and Salt Air. I would have had A stitch in Color, but I have already added it to a quilt in progress.

 Good Fortune is full of wonderful Blues and Greens and Purples and a delightful peach color. 

I REALLY like Salt air too. I got to meet Julie at quilt market and she is a really amazing lady. I want to quilt for her. Salt air is full of blues, greens and the perfect sunset shade. Both of these little packs can be yours. I will pick a winner on Sunday afternoon and mail them out on Monday.

All you have to do is let me know what you would do with these tiny squares.

Good Luck!

Oh and check back tomorrow for a book review of Little Bits Quilting Bee by Kathreen Ricketson You can win that too if you want a copy!

I am so waiting for Salt Air to release, I just love the colors in it. I think I would incorperate the fabric in some way in a # of totes I will be making for the women in my family for Christmas, of course they may get IOU's for Christmas and their totes in June.
Thanks for the giveaway and a chance to win.

They look perfect for a cute little baby quilt.

Isisjem said...

If I won they'd be made into pillow covers as my sofa is in desperate need of some jazzing up. I'd hand quilt on them using perle. Otherwise I'd probably just go for a simple squares design to show off the fabric.

Pat said...

I would sew them into 4 patches with white with a straight set so the colors travel diagonally on the quilt. :)

Cherie in St Louis said...

Why I'd use them in a scrap quilt inspired by the Ticker Tape quilts that have been so fun to see around the blogosphere :)

Kathy said...

LOVE those little squares! I would cut them each in half and use them in a baby quilt using half square triangles and one solid color. Thanks or the yummy giveaway!

Jenny said...

thanks for a chance, Tia...I love these little 2.5 inch squares...so much fun to add into little projects here and there, but mostly, i love having them like a Kona color card...then i know the colors/prints etc...with no decent LQS, sometimes ordering on line is like Russian roulette!!

Stephanie said...

I would probably make a baby quilt with them. I love the beautiful, vibrant colors.

elizabeth said...

I am on a mini quilt kick, so these would be the perfect size : ) Love the colors!

Miss Sherry said...

I would probably piece a baby quilt for my grandaughter with them. What fun for her and me!

silversmith said...

ooh.... they're pretty!! i'd use them for either postage stamp-type quilt blocks or for hexagon work. or maybe the centers for little stars that have solid colored points that coordinate.

anna said...

I don't know what I would do with them. At first, just sit and stare at the pretty fabric.

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I think these are calling out to be made into 9 patches. Then they could become a quilt or tote bags or zippy pouches or...

Lee said...

How pretty! I would use for pillow covers for the cottage! perfect! thanks!

mindingmomma said...

I think I need a tote in salt air for sure!

Raddness said...

I see a table runner out of those beauties! Thank you!

Bonnie said...

I'd make a patchwork with white blocks in between to keep it open and airy.

Deb said...

What would I do...what would I do?? Most likely I'd start with the idea for a table runner, then figure out how to use both with what I have (or can buy) to make a toddler/lap quilt instead, then most likely end up with a huge throw with all of the fun fabrics I found (or bought hehe) to go with them :D Yes, I'm an A.D.D. quilter lol! The possibilities are endless!

Lynn said...

I'd spice up my scrap bin and put them in a scrappy quilt! I love new fabrics.

Katie said...

I love making small zipper bags and fabric baskets. They'd be perfect! :-)

Anya said...

Either a mini quilt for my daughter or pouches, pouches, pouches!

Melissa said...

I hadn't seen Salt Air before. Both lines look very pretty! I think I'd like to make a doll quilt or two with some half and quarter square triangles. Having some precut squares would make the process a bit quicker. Thanks for sharing with us!

Melissa said...

I hadn't seen Salt Air before. They are both very pretty lines. I'd like to make a few doll quilts with half and quarter square triangles. Having precut squares would make the process a lot easier. Thanks for sharing with us!

Henria O. said...

How about some pathwork handbags for my daughters with matching belts!

Aliceart said...

Applique! Always looking for bits like that for my 12 x 12 quilts, and other appliqué, plus a few hexagons. Those are pretty! Thanks.

Lyanna said...

I think I would finally have to make quilts for my girls beds! Those are absolutely adorable.

terrieannie said...

I'm really wanting to whip up some mini quilts for wall decor in my office. These would be perfect!!

Nancy S. said...

I think they'd look lovely in a baby quilt, alternating with white squares or another light fabric.

Katharine said...

I would love to make a little quilt out of these fabrics!

MG said...

My daughter has asked for quilts for her two dolls, so I'd make each of the dolls a quilt for Christmas.

Gwen said...

I think I'd make a table topper from the Good Fortune .. it would go perfectly in my sewing room and I have just the perfect spot for a small topper! And I'd add some other fabrics with the Salt Air charms and make a small wall hanging for my laundry room-- those colors would help make a boring job much for cheerful! :-)

Tamie said...

These are stunning. I love Kate Spain and Salt Air looks wonderful too. I'm sure they would work themselves into a quilt. I'd love to do some half square triangles. Thanks for sharing.

SewLindaAnn said...

Those colors are lovely! I would cut solids the same size and make tons of half square triangles for a quilt.

gill said...

I'd make a table runner!
I can't wait for Salt Air to arrive in the UK!!

Heather said...

I am loving hexagons these days so they would probably go in my next hexagon quilt. The 2 1/2 in size is perfect for the 1 in hexagons!

JustPam said...

These are really pretty. I would make a tote for a little girl with them if I won.

poppyinpink said...

Circumstances have meant I have lots of time to sit and hand sew. Things like postage stamp quilts and other scrappy quilting ideas have provided a fascinating diversion for me and I am enjoying trying my hand at making pincushions, and other small projects from tiny pieces of multiprint and coloured fabric..it is quite a consuming occupation helping the hours to pass quite quickly and there is something lovely to show for the time. I would be grateful for any instruction and guidance that Kathleen's unique looking book might provide.

poppyinpink said...

I have been hoping to have some of either the Cosmo Salt or the Kate Spain fabric ever since I saw them at the latest "Market", they are both interesting colour schemes and patterns. They would be lovely to include in my postage stamp hand work..I would be very grateful to have use of them in particular. (could this comment be included instead of the previous one which was actually for the next giveaway... silly me!)

Julie said...

Oh my, I'm not quite sure what I would make with them! I'd have to sit and pet them and drool over them a bit first. Some ideas that come to mind though are notepad holders, some little pouches, borders for embroidered blocks and totes. The possibilities are endless with these little cuties!

Carla G said...

I would make some table runners with them! I love the colors - they are my favorites! Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Jenniffier said...

Hexagons! Or use them in a doll quilt. Or maybe a bit of both.

bertiequilts said...

I would use them in my circles quilt... I need about 1500 circles and this is the size that I use t=o cut the circles. I was wondering where you got them. They are perfect.

Jeanne said...

I think I would make some tiny quilts with them. I love very small quilts with many small pieced blocks. Thanks for the chance to win.
