Christmas Giveaway !


Merry Christmas my dear Online Friends:
These lovely novelty fabrics need a new home. I have been in attentive to them far too long... when I bought them, the figures on the fabric were all fat and healthy - now you can see they are only skeletons... how could I have forgotten to feed them like that!
Actually they are some wonderfully creative "Day of the Dead" novelty fabrics - and they are lovely quality fabric. Each cut is one yard - I think I bought them at some quilt festival.
So - leave a message and tell me something you would like to do with this fabric... I'll be asking my DH to read the posts and pick the one to send the fabric to... so creativity in your message might just turn the tide!
We will pick the winner at noon on Sunday, December 26th!
Merry Quilty Christmas to All...
Kate

these would make a great apron for my grilling husband!!

I think they would be great fussy cut and put in an I Spy quilt for my grand daughter. I love that cowboy his personality shows through his frame!

I think I'd made a fun spread cloth for when I use my Halloween themed tarot cards :) Fabric is like cookies, there is always someone who will like them.

Seasons best, Sharyn

Pick me! Pick me!

I am planning a quilt that will have roses, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and I also wanted skeletons or skulls. So these fabrics would be perfect for that project.

I have plenty of food to feed these skinny doods. They will feast on fat quarters, which is surely a good way to fatten them up, to be used in charity quilts.

I would use thes fabrics to make either strippy quilts or 4-patches and squares for the Quilts For Kids, an organization that donates to children in hospitals. I jsut sent 3 to PA last week, but have since found out we have a local chapter in Baton Rouge, LA.
Thank you.

I would use these fabrics to make pillow covers for my teenage kids - sweet dreams... mwahahahaha!

Nancy said...

Hi Kate,
I had to laugh when I saw the fabrics. My first thought was, NO ONE will want those. But you know, it's all in how small you cut it....I would call these one inch fabrics....

Anyway, I think I'll mark your blog. I think you and I may have the same sense of humor. :)

I would love to win these. I would make some baskets to hold candy for my Grandchildren for Halloween for next year.

With some creative cutting and some additional fabrics, I think this could be a most excellent Hawaiian shirt for my DH to wear while riding his skull themed Harley.

Irene Onderweegs said...

those fabrics will be fantastic in the quilt for my niece - into gothic and all - that is waiting long enough to resemble the skeletons ;*{
she just wanted red, white and black, and i am thinking to sneek some other color in hehehe
dust is gathering too on the fabric for this quilt, so i sneezed hard enough to have my flesh flying away from me, i could very well end up like one of those pretty undeads. happy sneeX-mas and healthY Sneezyear.
thanks, no thanks

Hi Kate, I think I could fatten them up, hehehe! I would love to receive these fabrics. I'm trying to teach my DGS, age 7, to sew. He is ADDHD and it is hard to keep his attention. I think your buddies would do the trick.

These remind me of the Grateful Dead's logo. My son, a shred guitarist extraordinaire, loves anything related to classic rock. He would *dig* some bones on quilt for his dorm room at college :)

I have a friend that is going on a biker cruise. She is not a quilter but would like to take a coverlet along with her to put on her cruise bed... these would be a wonderful addition to those that I have started... Carrie

I would love to make a quilt out of this material as I am an ESL Kindergarten teacher. We make various items for this day of celebration as most of my students have a Hispanic background.

My husband loves Day of the Dead and has quite a few figurines and t-shirts of them. We've been to Mexico 3 times and every time we come back, about 3 or 4 figurines would come with us. I also ordered some from an online site. I bought some skeleton fabric and made him a pillowcase and he loves it. I would make him a nice lap quilt with the fabrics.

Cheri said...

Just returned from a trip to see my son & his family. Getting reaquainted with grandchildren who were toddlers last trip and are teens now was challenging. DGD has a passion for these skeletal thingies...a quilt made from them might help break the ice for gramma. Thanks for considering me.

Kasey said...

I would combine them with the skull prints I already have and make an AWESOME purse that everyone would love until they got close, and then there would be those few people whose compliments trail off into, "Is that a skeleton?" Personally, I think skeletons and skulls look a lot happier than some living people!

KatieQ said...

I don't have a good use for these fabrics. If they came to my house they would languish in the sewing room with the rest of my stash. I would like to be included in the giveaway. If my name is chosen, please send the fabric to Wanda.

I'm happy to see that your move across country has been a success. It's nice to see a ray of California sunshine especially since a fine icy snow is falling here in New York today.

Sheila said...

I have just the home for these lovely fabrics. They will be surrounded by jelly rolls, layer cakes, and honey buns. After they feast for awhile, I will put them all together and have a nice warm quilt & snuggle-up on cold winter nights with my own Hunny Bunny.

ytsmom said...

I love day of the dead fabrics! They make great aprons.

Pam said...

Cute fabric. I think I would cut the fabric into squares that would best make use of the skeletons, then sew them back together with a co-ordinating square in the middle and make some faux cathedral square blocks. Then I would turn these into halloween tote bags for the kiddos.

Thanks

I am SUCH a bones and skulls kinda' gal, although you can't tell by looking at me - blonde and fluffy, but I would sooooooooooooooooooo adore receiving these lovelies as I think they would make simply stellar journal covers and coordinating totes - tre' chic or is that mucho chica????? Groovy cool and THANK YOU for this fun offering and Feliz Navidad to one and all!!!!!!!!!!! Catherine in VA

Louise said...

The fabrics are unique and fun. I would make something Halloweeniana (is that a word??) for my friend who loves things like that.

My retirement party was around the "Day of the Dead" time period. It was in Albuquerque, NM, an area that celebrates that ocassion. I even had a quilt pattern that was to be colored by the guests. The colored papers were judged and the best colored design (colored by a man) won a prize. I would love to use the fabric to make a quilt in remembrance of that day. Betty

I'd put a few squares in an I Spy quilt I'm collecting squares for & the rest with go with some additional fabric for a Halloween quilt :)

K-Krafts said...

Cut these real small? Put only a couple of squares in a quilt? No way! These are WAY too awesome for that. These would make the MOST adorable baby items! When someone I know is having a baby, I make a day out kit in coordinating fabrics (I just finished a pirate set and a robot set): padded mat for bathroom changing tables (rolls up nicely to fit in diaper bag), appliqued onesie, bib, burp cloth, pacifier clip, and small washcloth. Wow, a set made from Day of the Dead fabric? Yes. I know just the person! :-)
