  149. Wait...I have to pick just one fabric from the site? Drat...seriously, I don't know which of these two I'd pick, but they're different color variations of the same style, so I'm pretending it counts.

    RJR Fabrics Summer Solstice Curls in either warm or cool.

  154. Awesome giveaway Heather! I'm loving this new fabric line...and how cute would it be to have a cushion or two covered in chairs sitting on your favourite chair?!

    I really like Hawthorne threads. My favourite part of their website is how they have their fabric lines organized. I'm a visual person and it's so nice to see all of the prints organized by designer, line, colorway...

    My current fave fabric is much harder to decide...I've become a wee tad obsessed with the Little Folks voiles and want them all!!! Please don't make me pick favourites :)

    ReplyDelete
  155. The same goes for the PIllow swap pillows! How can you make me choose?! One of my top faves is definitely Sewing Geek's String pillow with all of the Denyse Schmidt loveliness in it. There is nothing about that pillow that I don't LOVE!

    ReplyDelete
  156. Wow! lots of beautiful ones, so it's hard to choose! But I really like your cathedral window pillow (no, I'm not trying to suck up to be the winner-but only because I don't think it'll work) and I also like the other cathedral window pillow by Sew-Fantastic!
