  6. Wow, that sounds amazing! It would be fun to gather some quilting friends and all dig through that box together. Everyone could pick the pieces they love and we could all make quilts and bags and other crafty things.

  7. I would make some scrappy baby and lap quilts to donate. All the bright colors are so cheery.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow! I would probably try to find some scrap quilt tutorials or patterns as soon as possible!
    And there is always use for a scrap or two of fabric completing my small cross stitch projects :)
    Thanks!

  16. I'd share them with the wonderful people who are making quilts for Siblings Together 2013 (http://lilysquilts.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/siblings-together-2013.html) - those special scraps could make wonderful quilt for children who need all the 'special' they can get.

  17. I have the perfect project for these scraps. My nine year old daughter was adopted through foster care. As she is beginning to understand her story, one of the hardest things to accept is that she has biological siblings that she's never met. We are in the process of reaching out and forming a connection and I hope to figure out a way for her to meet them in the next year or two. In the meantime, I want to make matching quilts for her and her two birth sisters. I think it would be something tangible that each of them can have to represent the connection they have to one another. Honey Honey would be the perfect fabric to make their quilts. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 40lbs??? That's awesome! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would use these wonderful scraps to introduce quilting to our school. Our Students' Council is looking for a charity project. Making quilts for our local hospital would be a great project. Pieces of the heart (from our students, and from YOU.) 40 pounds would mean we could also use scraps and quilting as real life manipulatives for some math classes! Thank you so very much for the opportunity!

    (I've never replied to a blog before. I hope I've done this correctly. My email is constance_hodson@kprdsb.ca)

  23. You know in the movies when people throw lots of money in the air then roll around in it? That would be me with that fabric :). Of course after that I'd be busy making beautiful things our of it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for the chance!! 40 POUNDS!! WOW!! My sister and I would have so much fun, ideas are spinning!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 40 lbs!!! First I would stare at it in disbelief! Then I would get to work making my baby girl to be some fun stuff. Then I would start working on making my friend's soon to be adopted a baby girl some fun stuff (due 2 days after mine). Then I would finish off by making fun stuff for one more friend expecting a baby girl 5 weeks after me. Wow, what an amazing offer :) Thanks.

  31. Quilts and pillow cases for children with cancer that are being treated at my city's children's hospital. A friend has a child battling leukemia and it has been an insightful (and heart wrenching) experience for everyone who knows her. I recently read an article where a large group of women got together to support a charity called 'Pillowcases for Oncology Kids (South Australia)'. The women made pillow cases to brighten hospital stays for children with cancer. Hospital is so overwhelming for young children that being able to choose something for themselves to keep with them during their hospital stays ensures they always have something positive to associate with their treatment. Not that I need to add anything else to me list of activities, but this would be a great community service project that would benefit precious children and their families.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would be thrilled to have the "scraps off of your table"... your beautiful fabrics would be used to teach my eight year old granddaughter two things: how to express herself creatively through quilting, and how to be generous... we'd be making baby quilts for donation through our church... after, we'd be giving OUR scraps to someone at her school who makes knitted fabric purses for little girls...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, that would be heaven! Could make quilts galore with those scraps! I think in terms of EPP quilts -- lots of hexies and diamonds.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Probably jump for joy and then get down to some epp!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd be happy to use this bounty to make quilts for children in care in the UK who are separated from their siblings except for a holiday camp which brings them together for some important family time - work carried out by Siblings Together.

    Last year the children didn't believe they got to keep the quilts - that brings tears to my eyes now!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am also planning to make a quilt or two for the Siblings Together project driven by Lily's Quilts. My first quilt, though, would be for my sister - she is bravely battling brain cancer, but has recently taken a turn for the worse. I think she would love these colors and it would help keep me busy doing something for her from so far away. Your fabric could brighten up anyone's day!! Thanks for being so generous and sharing your goodies with your readers. I know you give a thrill of a lifetime to the lucky winner!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. wow..... quilts and bags and lots of other scrappy goodness! Some for charity, some for gifts maybe even something for me? what a nice giveaway!

  40. Your question was, what would you do with approximately 40 lbs. of Honey Honey scraps, to make the world a little sweeter? I can't help it, (I'm fabric selfish) I 'd keep them for myself a consider it a birthday gift and omen to make myself something for a change. I'm sure there would be plenty left over for sharing. One women's scraps are another women's "quilt to be treasure". Thanks for the extremely generous give away! ;-> Toni Anne

    ReplyDelete
  44. Here's what I would do with 40 lbs of scraps: I would invite all my friends and my daughter's friends (she's 12) who always say 'someday I want you to teach me to sew' and teach them to sew. Then we would give the quilts to kids who need them.I don't need any fabric, and truth be told, I could and should do this project with my friends regardless of whether I won the giant box of scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Forty POUNDS?? We're just starting up a modern quilt guild in my town, and my group could make a really fun project with those!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think I'd make a quilt for Project Linus. Hope you have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm not very experienced in quilting and afraid to touch and ruin my precious honey honey fabrics. But even just looking at it makes my heart fill up with joy.
    With your scraps I would start with a babyquilt (or even bigger if my skills turn out to be usefull) out of hexagons - like a meadow full of flowers, sounds like heaven, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I have always wanted to start a quilting circle and that would be the perfect way to begin! We have a lot of people who are experiencing tough times and I think quilt blankies for kids would be a great idea.

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win! Good luck to all ...

  60. I'd echo what Archie the Wonder Dog said. We are making quilts for children who have been separated from their siblings by the care system. Siblings Together gets these children together on a regular basis and also organises summer camps for them so they get to holiday with their siblings. Last year we sent each one of the kids at the camp a quilt - this year we're trying to send groups of similar quilts - eg three siblings get a quilt each made from the same fabrics because the siblings loved it when they got matching quilts. We're in the UK so you might not want to ship all that fabric all this way but, if you were to share it with us, I'd make sure a group of us made a set of quilts to go to a set of siblings at the summer camp this year.

    ReplyDelete
  61. 40 lbs?!! My kids and I would have a fabric tossing party (instead of confetti) and once we were done with all the fun I'd make some fun scrappy quilts.

  63. I would share it with the gals at quilt guild to make childrens quilts that we donate to Childrens Mercy Hospital. Thanks for the chance to win.KMA

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would hug the box for sure. Then I would rip it open and squeal at the eye candy. Then I fantasize about all the projects I can make with them...and then I would toss those all out the door and do something totally random because that is my style. Maybe I would finally tackle the single girl quilt pattern. These prints would be perfect for that pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would make quilts for my 4 nieces. Thanks for the chance! Love your work.

  70. It would certainly make my day! I am making a baby quilt out of it for my little girl due in March. I would love to make a new bed skirt and crib bumper to match.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh wow! How generous! That's kind of like asking what I would do if I won the lottery; I'd use some responsibly (charity quilt, maybe share with some lovely friends) and use some for fun for me.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I would just about faint with happiness if this box landed on MY doorstep! Then I would make me some QUILTS!

  82. Along with many other UK quilters, I am making scrap quilts for the Siblings Together charity, so this fabric would be perfect. This year we are trying to make sets of quilts for sets of siblings, so a big load of scraps would be perfect for making a family of quilts :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I would use it for our charity efforts at the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild to make quilts for Lucile Packard Neonadal unit. Last year we donated 50 quilts to Lucile Packard and 51 more quilts to other organizations. Thank you for your generosity!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Oh My Gosh. What wouldn't I do with a box like that? Right off the bat I can see me doing QAYG blocks with the scraps and then making all kinds of things with those blocks - mug rugs, doll quilts, wall hangings - you name it. What a wonderful chance this is.

So right now I'm working on making and quilting twelve quilts to donate my local quilt guild as a going away present to them at our next meeting. I have five quilts done but am running out of stuff to quilt. Your box of fabric would go a long way in helping me reach this goal.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Oh my goodness, I would share! I would break up the fabric and plan to use some for quilts and then the other part would go to the quilting group at my church so that they can make more quilts for donation. Many hands make many quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  130. You are so generous. With those scraps I would take them into my daughter's 4th grade class and they in turn would sew the strips together (for their pioneer unit) and then I would trim those blocks down and join them into a quilt top and backing and then bring it back for the kids to tie and then it would be given to the one of the local homeless shelters for some children--we did something similar a few years ago when my other daughter was in 4th grade and the children loved making quilts for other children who need a little extra warmth and love.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Be still my heart! What to do with 40 lbs of gorgeous Kate Spain? After an appropriate amount of time spent fondling, oohing and ahhing-I would make quilts for my daughter and her suite-mates at college. They are all freshmen and a little homesick at this point in the year. A cozy quilt for each one would be just right.

  143. 40 pounds?! Holy moly! I'd probably add to my scrap paper pieced star blocks I have going, and I'd definitely share the wealth and pass some along!

  144. Hi Kate,
    To converge 40 lbs to kilo (we use in the Netherlands) is 18 kilo!! I don't know if this is right but I sure know it is a lot! I would like to give most of it to my daughter (23). She is very good at making quilts just out of nothing. Referring to your post of Gees bend, that is how she works too, sort of. No patterns no books, just sewing, making big slabs of fabric and then the quilt grows.
    Only I'm afraid you cannot send it to Europe I think?
    Anyway thanks for the nice Gees bend story.
    Groetjes
    Annemieke

  145. I would make a couple quilts for some friends' new babies - because the only projects I can keep up with lately are ones with deadlines! The rest would be used to make quilts for the local NICU and a great charity I found online last week that makes quilts for women undergoing treatment for postpartum depression.(http://margaretshopechest.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-mothers-hope.html)

  147. I would have a lot of fun using them in pineapple or log cabin blocks and star blocks and all sorts of scrappy and paper pieced quilts that are bouncing around in my head. Plus one of my friends who has only boy children is expecting a granddaughter - who deserves a quilt made from this line!

  148. I would try my very very best to make the most beautiful Honey Honey quilts!

  149. First, I would pick myself up after fainting on the floor! Then, I would run to my patterns to scour through them and find some that would show off that pretty fabric the best. Next off to the sewing machine to sew up these quilt tops to donate to various charities! Thank you for the chance!!

  150. I would make my first quilt! Trinh: trinhthuyvu@yahoo.com

  151. Think of the baby quilts I could make!!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I love anything Kate Spain so I can imagine lots of versatility with scraps from that collection! Can you give me more hours in my day along with the scraps??

    ReplyDelete
  153. Wow, 40 pounds. What to do? I would enlist my mom, grandma, sisters and nieces to help me make as many scrappy quilts as possible to send to Walter Reed Hospital for the injured soldiers coming home to replace the one my husband received in 2008.

  154. Some quilts for a local charity of choice:)

    ReplyDelete
  155. 40 lbs!! what couldn't i do with that! would be perfect for teaching the girls in my neighborhood a little sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Wow! What an awesome prize! My local modern quilt guild is making quilts for a local girls ranch. The idea is to give each girl a quilt that is her own and she will take it with her when she leaves the ranch. The ranch is an in-between place while the girls are between CPS and foster care waiting for their forever families! These awesome scraps would make happy happy quilts! Thanks!

  157. I think I would make a quilt for each of my friends!

  158. Wowsers! How generous! I love the fabric! I would make a quilt for myself with it and the leftovers will be divided between the three charities I support - Project Friendship - sends small wall hangings to displaced tsunami victims from Japan, Na Lima Aloha (the Hands of Love) - my quilt Guild's charity, and Operation Kid Comfort - where we make photo quilts for children of deployed service members. Thank you for your generosity!

  159. ohhhh where to start...I would dream sweet quilting dreams for a few month, then one day wake up and start on the best of the dreams!!

    ReplyDelete
  160. Well first things first...I would share!! That's a lot of lovely fabric and I know TONS of people who would want in on this.
    Once that was done, depending on how large the "Scraps" are, I would piece together a dress for my daughter (currently working my way through the princesses) and probably make a quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  161. Woah! That would be crazy awesome. I would have to share because that would be too much for just me.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Wowza! 40 lbs. of quilty goodness would be over-the-top-amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  163. Swoon - after they resucitated me I would call my quilty friends (The Robins) and we would get busy! So much sorrow lately, but this delightful box would go a long long way toward producing quilty smiles! (fingers crossed...)

    ReplyDelete
  164. You are always so generous... I feel like it would be a pot of gold! So much to make, so little time to make it (quilts, patchwork animals and clothes).

    ReplyDelete
  165. I am another Siblings Together maker - so they would go to an amazing cause xxx

    ReplyDelete
  166. I would make a quilt with it and take it to church to share with my quilty friends, it would probably make a great quilt for the prayer quilt ministry at church too!

  167. My 3yo has about 5 quilts, my 1yo has none. I would make her a whole honey honey themed room :) And use it for the preschool quilt I'll be making for the auction.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I'd use it to make quilts for project Genesis -- a group that helps young women escape from sex-trade trafficking in the Seattle area. Part of the program includes providing each woman or teen with safe housing. They're given a handmade blanket, quilt, or afghan which is theirs to keep -- a symbol that people in the community care about them. I love using fresh, modern fabrics that appeal to all ages, though I will use pretty much anything that comes to hand.

  169. Probably a lovely scrappy quilt and lots of little projects like zippered bags and camera straps. :)

    ReplyDelete
  170. I would be so happy to have your scraps. I love the fabric line and i could use them to make quilts for foster kids when they graduate. It's what our guilting group dose together. lisaursino@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  171. This would be great for our fledgling guild to use for classes and challenges. We are hoping to do some charity quilts this year so 40lbs of scraps would go a looooonggg way!

    Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  172. I would roll in it ?
    Once it's done, I would probably bring it to our guild meeting and we'd make a whole lot of baby quilts out of it !!

    ReplyDelete
  173. If I should win again, I would make a bigger quilt with the sweet Honey Honey fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  174. Wow, there are so many wonderful and inspirational ideas in these comments! What terrific people quilters are!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Lots of quilts to give to family, friends and charity! Hubby says I should probably keep something I make one of these days too and I do love Honey Honey something fierce! :)

    ReplyDelete
  176. I have NO IDEA how much fabric is in 40#! But I would start by making a twin quilt for the Annie Malone Children's Center that our quilt guild is sponsoring this year,,,then I would split the rest with my daughter because we both love Kate Spain fabrics! And Happy Sewing would ensue!

    ReplyDelete
  177. My quilt guild would love to use this for our many charity projects for hospitals, children, and homeless. thanks so much for your generosity!

    ReplyDelete
  178. 40 POUNDS?! like, the size of my four year old?! After I finished rolling around in it and instagramming pictures of myself rolling around it in, it would turn into a whole bunch of quilt tops. I like to randomly gift quilts to people I don't know. I leave them on various desks at work and no one has managed to figure out it's me yet. (Big office). I'd probably make a bunch to randomly gift just to share the honey honey joy!

    ReplyDelete
  179. Oh Kate, Honey Honey is probably the prettiest fabric I've seen in a long time! What a generous gift of fabric! I think I'd make a bag or two for sure, and I think a quilt and matching pillow covers would make my living room so lovely! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Lots of petting, and then baby quilts! Lots and lots of them!

    ReplyDelete
  181. My mind is racing! First I would make myself a lap quilt, then maybe share some!

    ReplyDelete
  182. I'd pull out some scraps for myself, but then would divvy up the rest with the ladies of the LAMQG!

    ReplyDelete
  183. Well, although it would be tempting to wallpaper my room with it so I could stare at it non-stop, I'd probably be practical and make a quilt...and maybe a little one for my American Girl doll too.

    ReplyDelete
  184. I am considering teaching my grade 4/5 students how to paper piece. They love sewing and I love sewing. Oh, my. This makes me sew (pun intended) excited!!

    ReplyDelete
  185. 40 pounds! Wow. Would make a Weekender bag for my granddaughter and share the rest with my guild. Crazy giveaway, thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  186. What a wonderful give away. Lots and lots of projects...

    ReplyDelete
  187. I don't even know if I could wrap my mind around having 40 lbs of gorgeous Honey Honey dropped on my door step! After I recovered from the shock, I would divvy it up between my quilty friends with the intention that we all make a quilt to donate to a worthy cause of our choice. (And hopefully there would be some leftover to make something fun to keep!)

    ReplyDelete
  188. Geebus. I would make the Ultimate Scrap Quilt. Then I'd make a couple of Ultimate Charity Quilts, maybe a dozen. And then I'd donate my ultimate leftover scraps to a quilt guild!

    ReplyDelete
  189. As so many have stated before - the only thing to do with such a wonderful windfall would be to share with others and create for others. I would buy a bolt of white and create the most awsome colorful modern quilts for todays modern children...would love to win such a sweet box of goodness.

    ReplyDelete
  190. What would i do with 40 pounds of scraps? Take them to my quilting group, divy them up and make some charity quilts--for babies and vets. We always LOVE new to us scraps!! Amazing what we can do!!

    ReplyDelete
  191. What a fantastic giveaway. I'm another of the siblings together quilters, so would love to win this to share with my fellow virtual quilting bee'ers( incidentally called the honey bees)

    ReplyDelete
  192. Oh my. What would I do/make with Honey Honey scraps? I would add some to my ever-growing pile of 2.5" squares for my scrappy Grannies and add some 2.5" strips to my pile for another scrappy trip around the world quilt. and if there is anything left over, I would share my bounty with my friend's mom who took time out of her life to teach me the sewing craft 5 years ago. :)
