Summersville Giveaway!

Happy Friday to you all!  Hey Girl, (or guy as it might happen) want to win some fabulous fabric??  I thought so.  My fabric friend Julie from The Intrepid Thread is giving me two, yes two, charm packs of Summersville by Lu Summers for one of you to win.  Look at how fresh and great this range of fabrics is…

All Lu Summers’ prints are her own line drawings.  I love the cross hatch – what a great basic to have in your stash.  The feel of these fabrics is modern and whimsical, don’t you think?

Ok, here’s the deal!  Simply leave me a comment explaining what project you would make with two charm packs.  Want another chance at winning?  Follow my blog and then leave me another comment saying you signed up!  If you already follow, just let me know.  Winner will be selected on Sunday, April 29th.  Leave email contact with your comment.  Good luck!

Comments are now closed. Thanks for all your comments!

#40 is our winner!  Byron

“Oh, I love this collection! I would make a baby quilt with the charms.”

  1. This line is lovely! I would use these to make my son a simple quilt, and buy yardage of the house/car fabric for the backing.

  2. It’s such a beautiful line that I think I will only have it there to look at it, just so. Until my daughters see it and start begging for a quilt or something similar.

  3. Gorgeous fabric! I’d find some solid background fabrics, and use them to highlight the print. Possibly a simple star set, where the center was fussy cut.

  4. Ive already been thinking about this line! i was thinking to give my kids fabric markers and have them color in the scenes, and then make large pillows for our family room.

  5. i love this line and i think with charm packs i’d make some patchwork place mats and/or pillows. thanks!

  6. I just discovered your blog. Love the modern look of your quilts. And the modern look of those fabrics! I am now a follower and can’t wait to see more of your work.

  7. Oooh, well, I’ve been making pillows for our big and rather uncomfortable breakfast nook that we cannot yet afford to reupholster so I would definitely make some pillows with charm packs. The colorway is perfect for the fabric we’re working with already.

  8. Would love some Sumersville – I’ve been making charm sqaure bags – so some of this would be great! jorobexeter(at)gmail(dot)com

  9. I love a previous commenters idea about having little ones color in e drawings. Too cute! I’d probably make a quilt with them, though. Maybe stars. :) thanks for te chance!

  10. Well I happen to have just ironed my pezzy prints charm pack, and this would go great with it to make a super awesome quilt if I do say so myself! Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. I’d combine them with some bold colors and for a wallhanging or preemie quilt, maybe pillows.

  12. This fabric is so adorable :)
    I would make little patchwork skirts for my Sophie and Gracie!
    Thank you for the chance to win some of this lovely fabric!

  13. I’m not sure what I would make with the fabric right now, but my oldest son and his wife are expecting their first child this Thanksgiving, so I would probably make the baby a quilt.

  14. The Summersville prints look so cute! I think I’d have to use at least some of them for something I could take with me everywhere like a fun tote bag. But a quilt would be nice too. I hope I have to wrestle with this hard decision! Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. :) I just signed up to follow your blog! Great ideas!!! Can’t wait to read more of your blog posts!!! :)

  16. I signed up to follow you by email, didn’t see any other options. I’ve been following you via google reader, does that count? :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. Adorable line! I’d make some quilt blocks. I need an excuse to try out my new 1/4″ seam foot! :o)

  18. I think this line is great – I would add some solid colors and make some wonky stars – sounds cool!

  19. I’d make a zig zag with HST for my soon-to-be-baby girl. Not a big fan of pastels, so this would be PERFECT!

  20. I can see a delightful picnic quilt out of this line – very light and inviting! Thanks for the chance to win.

  21. I think I’d try a quilt top using the same idea that Ashley on Film in the Fridge did with a charm pack of Echo. A beautiful and simple way to feature some VERY special fabric!

  22. I love Summersville. My Scandinavian heritage is drawn to these patterns and colors. Two packs combined with some solids would make a bright and cheery throw for my bed or a picnic quilt for me and my grandson.

  23. I follow your wonderful blog……….thanks so much for the chance to win …..have a great day.

  24. I came over from The Intrepid Thread to check this out. Thank you for a chance to win.

    PS I am a new RSS feed subscriber (using Google Reader). I had to go use Firefox to because it blew up in Chrome. LOL. :-)

  25. I would make at least two things with the charm packs, a table runner and a bag. I just love this fabric line. Thank you for the chance to win some of it.

  26. I think I am doing this backwards! LOL. My first comment was following and now I am letting you know what I’d do with this. I’m thinking flying geese along with some squares. Not sure yet. Most of those fabrics are cute and needs to be showcased somehow.

  27. I would make myself a lap quilt for my chair to hold my grandbabies while we rock. Thank you for the giveaway..

  28. I am a new follower, glad I have had the chance to find this little corner of the quilting world.. Nice work, nice to meet you.. Have a nice weekend too….

  29. I think I would make some fun summer placemats for eating outside. Thanks for the chance to win.

  30. i am definitely thinking a patch quilt – maybe plus signs? although, another comment got me thinking on placemats….hmmmmm….

  32. A girl can never have too many bags and I would love a tote bag made from this fabric! So cute!

    with ;>)….thanks for the chance!!

  34. Great fabrics! I may make a wall hanging for my sewing room. Won’t realy decide until I can handle the fabric in person, but think I will make something for myself. Haven’t made something for me for a while, but I think it is time.

  35. I would probably make a throw quilt and a pillow or two to match. I love this fabric!

  36. The simpleness of each individual print would make for a great zig zag quilt. Maybe sort the charms into color groups and pair each HST with it’s complimentary solid to make the prints really stand out. Super collection. I love those crosshatch prints, too! Thanks!

  37. oh how I love summersville. I would make several throw pillows to go with the quilt I am planning on making with this fabric, already ordered from Julie!

  38. I would make little outfits for my daughter and son. Also probably use the scraps to make a camera strap cover as a present.

  39. I saw this fabric the other day and knew I’d make myself a lap quilt out of it…I love the designs..they remind me of coloring books and would be perfect for an “urban” quilt.

  40. I would make a small quilt to use as a table cloth for my kitchen table. I love, love love, these fabrics.

  41. I now follow your blog by email. Though if I win I want to be contacted through this one calienteana30 @ yahoo dot com. I don’t like my main email getting spammed.

  42. I am love with this fabric! First I would give my kids a few pieces with some fabric markers and let them color it like a coloring book! Then maybe a pillow!

  47. Love this line! I would make a simple patchwork sewing machine cover…maybe add in a few solids too.

  48. I’ve got a niece who needs a baby quilt, and her mom doesn’t like things too girly so I think this would be perfect!

  49. I would make a quilt of some sort – probably a baby quilt, maybe using the squares to make HSTs. Thanks for the chance to win!

  50. This line is so cute, I think I would probably use the charm packs with a few solids, maybe black and red, and make a simple quilt with all the squares. Thanks so much to you and Julie for the fabric fun!

  51. These are cute fabrics. I think these would look good in sofa pillows for the old river cabin (circa 1920) shared with all my siblings. mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  52. Such great little line drawings. I would definitely make something that would showcase the drawings. thanks for a chance to win some cute fabric.

  53. I think every friend I have is having their first grandchild this year so I’ve been in a baby quilt making mode for a few weeks. That’s what I’d do. Thanks for the chance to wiN!

  54. I love charm packs. I would probably use these charm packs to make several fabric art books and a twirly skirt for my five year old. She loves charm pack twirly skirts! I love art books!

  55. What a beautiful collection! Thanks for making it an opportunity to win. Will start following your blog. Hugs.

  56. I would definitely make a little blankie and pillow case for the car. My husband always freezes me in the summer with the AC and I love the print sooo much!! Thanks for the chance!!

  57. I m working on some placements for my children and think the drawings would be adorable for them.

  58. Gorgeous-ness! I really love the colors in the line. I’d have to make myself a quilt and matching pillow. I’ve never worked with a quilt pattern made specifically for charm packs, so I’d like to try one.

  59. It is most definitely time for me to make a quilt for myself so since I’m feeling selfish today I’m sure that is what I would do.

  60. I would definitely make a quilt out of them. They are so cute! I know the perfect little person to give it to. Thanks for the chance to win!

  61. Fresh really is the best word to describe this incredible fabric line! I’d make a quilted tote bag!!! Thank you!

  62. I love this line, from afar. I’ve been thinking I’d make a quilt using these prints, but can’t really decide on which quilt. Maybe I’d just frame each charm with a Kona solid. Maybe I’d make a HST quilt with the packs and solids. I don’t know, but I’d love for this to move from being a theoretical question to a real decision.

  63. Squeeeeeeellllllllll!!!! I love this collection! I would love to embroider some of the line drawings and make a patchwork skirt for my little girl!

  64. ooh fun! i would love to make some cute nursery toys with this. it’d be great for some little stuffed animals or bean bag toss games. :)

  65. I can’t find the spot to follow your blog. I’m not sure what to do. if you follow mine maybe I can click to follow you back

  66. I would love to make placemats & napkins or a runner to cheer up my kitchen! Thanks to you both for this great giveaway!

  67. I am thinking that I would make some placemats and matching table runner – wouldn’t that just be the sweetest? I think so too! Thanks for the chance!

  68. Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to make out of this fabric, it simply doesn’t speak to me…
    But I have a friend in Germany who absolutely wants to have it, and I would give it to her. Then she would either make a quilt or a bag *g*


  69. This is very interesting fabric, and different than the usual florals.
    I would make a table topper with them if i should be fortunate to win.

  70. Wow, two charm packs! I love the patterns and colours! I’d share my winnings with my quilting friend. We would use the same wonky pattern and each create our own work. A child’s quilt sounds good, or against my dark kitchen table these colours would stand out really well as runners and place mats! So many ideas…

  71. Think it’d make a dandy Tote………but I have a baby quilt to make….know she’s havin’ a boy….would make great quilt for him! Decisions, decisions! LOL

    Thanks for chance to win! :)

  74. I’m into crib and twin sized quilts. I’d pair some of the squares with other squares of cars, truck and other vehicles that I already have. I’m sure I can find a use for the rest of the squares, that’s such bright, fun fabric. Thanks.

  75. I have been wanting to make some new cushion covers for a while–these charms would be perfect! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  76. Just a fun charm square table runner. I have the pattern all ready to go, just need the darling Summersville fabric and I can make this for a dear friend. What a fun giveaway.

  77. Beautiful fabrics and with so many of my favorite colors. I would definitely use them in my scrap quilt.

  78. These fabrics are wonderful. I think they’d be lovely for some coordinated covered boxes, ironing board cover, sewing machine cover etc for my crafting room. Be especially blessed, Kathy

  79. I’ve signed up to follow your blog and also to follow you on twitter. So nice to meet ya!!! Be blessed, Kathy

  80. I’d make a bag and some pillows for my living room, and hopefully have some of the cross hatch and leaf prints left over for my stash! Love the line drawings!!

  81. I’d make a simple patchwork quilt with alternating squares of white to showcase these gorgeous prints. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  82. Hello, unfortunately for me I am unable to say what I would make with your charm packs because I have never won any or had any to work with. I would love to win some so i could figure out what to make though.
    Thank you

  83. This fabric is so cute! I think a little summer lap quilt would be adorable! I could just see laying at the foot of my bed :)

  84. I would LOVE to make pillows for my blue couch. Or maybe a quilt to leave on my blue couch. I absolutely love this line! Thank you!! :)

  85. This line is just so cute but I don’t know exactly what I would do until I would have some in front of me. Thanks.

  86. wonderful prints. think i would make a house quilt using some solids and a pillow to match. also would make cute tote bag…patterns are never ending with this wonderful fabric.

  87. I was thinking just this week that this line would make a great gender neutral baby quilt for my sister who is oh-so-meanly not going to find out what they’re having!! I mean, come on, how’s a quilter going to make a nice, personal quilt with that, lol!

  88. I think I would probably use them for small projects like pincushions, pouches & mini quilts.

  89. I love giving my children activities to do when travelling so I think I would use this to make a travel wallet of some kind and then let them colour in the pictures with markers.

  90. Hi! I love those fabrics and they are so great for everything! I have in my mind of course quilt or patchwork curtains (with some solids in same colours)! Thank you for a great give away!

  91. I would like to mix in some solids and make two baby quilts. Love this new line. Thanks for a chance to win some. :)

  92. I think I’d use them to make a variation on a cross block idea I’ve had for a while. Unlike many charm packs, the background color is similar so the contrast with the background would be even. Yay! Thanks for the giveaway.

  93. I would definitely make something for my grands, starting with the bands on some new pillowcases.

  94. These are marvelous. I’m seeing a quilt top for charity, like the Humanitarian Services at church or something. A really really cute quilt top. Or 2, depending on how big I wanted to make them, right?

  95. If only there was enough for a skirt for me! My preschoolers would love that. I’d probably do pillows or trim on curtains.

  96. I think I became a follower! LOL I wasn’t really sure where to do that, so clicked the little grey button at the bottom of the screen….

  97. I’d make a great huge pile of pillows for my kindergarten classroom reading corner, the kids love to snuggle up to “read to others”. I think these fabrics would be great mixed with some solids for the kids.

  98. I would make a picnic quilt out of this….add a few solids, and a fun pattern. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  99. I think this fabric would make cute placemats, maybe with a dresden plate flower in the center. Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck, Everyone. Also, I am now following your blog :)

  100. I love Summersville! I would make some pillows for my sewing room…
    Thanks for the giveaway

  101. Hi there! I just got a little bit of yardage in the mail today – just 2 prints and I adore it! I’d put the charm packs together with that to make a quilt for my soon to be born niece or nephew – we find out in July, but the line is really unisex. thanks!! Francine

  102. A half square triangle quilt to make it go further with a plain color for contrast! for my son in law who is pestering me for a quilt!

  103. I’d love to make a fun quilt for my sons. I’d add in some bright solids to make it pop. Thanks for a chance to win this fabulous fabric! :)

  104. I have a friend expecting a baby this fall… these fabrics would make an adorable baby quilt, and that is what I would do!

  105. Hey girl, these would make great place mats for summertime on the deck! or you know, any type of light & airy quilt. :)

  106. What neat fabrics. I’d love to make a project bag if I won.

    Thank you and Julie for a great giveaway and a chance to win.
