Tuesday giveaway

About a month ago, I jumped on the hexie bandwagon. Thanks to Texas Freckles, I'm making a charm quilt, so every hexie will be different.

I found this really great Lilly Pulitzer "cheater" fabric. Each square has the bright and happy prints that Lilly Pulitzer is famous for, and each is 4 inches. There are quite a few different  designs in each fabric repeat. But I only need one of each. So....something to give away.

Does anyone want these? Are you making hexies too? If not, what other ideas do you have for this fabric?

Just leave a comment and the random number generator will pick two winners on Thursday, 5 p.m. PST.

I have not seen this cheater print - it's gorgeous! Great idea to use it for your hexagon project. I've been dying to get on the hexagon bandwagon, so this would be a perfect start.

What a great idea to use cheater cloth for hexies...and what great cheater cloth!

Beautiful prints!!
I'm collecting fabric scraps for name pillows for my girls beds, and a picnic quilt - I was thinking of trying a raw-edge circle pattern.

sy said... #

these are so pretty. i want to make fake patchwork table runners with them.

Victoria said... #

I would love to use these colorful squares to decorate a tote. Maybe even as hexies,

Julia said... #

I am making a hexagon quilt using the plastic templates and could use fabric in various prints. But actually I have found a Christian coffee house/restaurant in my area. A friend saw me working on my quilt there and wants to learn how to do this. I'm going to show her the paper template way and this would be a good start for her. BTW, I'm Allison's mom, Ben's mother in law and Clark's grandma!

Grace said... #

Oh I could use these I love making hexagons. Thanks for the chance.

Marcia W. said... #

This could give me a push to learn to make hexagons. I would make some hexagons from my scraps that match in size/colors the cheater cloth. Then, would mix the larger uncut sections of the cheater cloth with those hexies. That way can get the best of both worlds!

Mama24Monkeys said... #

yeah I have been known to cheat and having this fabric would be the kind of cheating I like to do! What a great head start on a new project!

Pam said... #

Oh my I would love to win this fabric ...thank you for the chance!

Jodi said... #

I would love to make a bag out of it! Thanks for the chance!

Lindsay said... #

Youre right, that is a fun fabric. If I were to win I would give hexies a try. I have been a bit nervous about messing it up but thats how you learn right?


Lisa Bee said... #

Oooo... those are awesome colors in that fabric. I love the idea that I could make an entire hexagon project out of one piece of fabric. :)

SewLindaAnn said... #

What a simple and genius idea. I've never been much for panels or cheater cloths but I would love to try cutting them up to use as hexagons.

shelia said... #

workin on my first set of hexie's...that fabric would be wonderful!!!!

Oleander said... #

oo, i don't know if i'm patient enough for hexis so if i had the fabric i would probably do a flying geese quilt with white, i've been dying to start one

Angie from Dear Spring Green said... #

I just learned how to make hexies from my quilt guild (P'land Modern) and would love to make hexies from this! I am finding all my scraps to make hexies with are strange things from projects I have made for my 3 year old daughter...translation = pink, princesses, sesame street, and more pink! So something a little more um, not pink, would be great!

Little Miss Shabby said... #

Awesome fabric! And how perfect for hexagons?!?

Lee said... #

Very cute - I have not made any hexagons but I would love to try some!

Jacqueline said... #

I haven't tried Hexies but am big on charm quilts.. these fabrics would look great.

thanks for a chance


Lael said... #

I'd love the fabric for hexies and fussy cutting!

Tiffany said... #

I have no idea what I would make out of those... but I DO know that I LOVE the colors! I'm sure I could think of something.

Michele T said... #

I've never seen a cheater print and the colours are gorgeous. Not sure what I would make... but it would be fun. Thanks for the chance!

renae said... #

Gotta be honest - I'd make a handbag with it...


Jennifer said... #

Oooo so pretty! I hadn't seen this cheater fabric before.

Annabelle said... #

Made hexagons way back ... they were so difficult. This cheater fabric would be such fun and so much easier. Do pick me. Here is London we do not have such a choice. PS Love the blog.

Nancy Sue said... #

I would love to try hexagons with this fabric. My almost 3 year old son has turned it up a notch, so I'm needing more "portable" crafts.

Christina said... #

Such a great print! I too am addicted to making hexies. I'm also working on a charm quilt, but need lots more fabrics as I don't have enough in my stash. :) Thanks for the chance to win.

Nichole said... #

this would definitely be a welcome addition to my hexie quilt. thanks for sharing the love! :)

Sunflower Skies said... #

Love the fabric! I haven't given hexagons a shot yet, but am definitely planning on trying!


Annie said... #

I love it! Pick me!

Vesuviusmama said... #

I've been doing hexies so long that I'm not sure I can honestly say I'm still working on it - the poor project has been neglected for at least a year. However, I love this fabric, and I make lots of scrap quilts with all different fabric squares, so some bright Lilly prints would work very nicely. Thanks for the chance to win!

Pam said... #

Ohhh I would love this fabric!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Andrée Lachapelle said... #

That is so incredibly pretty! I would use this fabric to make the cutest girlie-girl aprons.
