  1. Aloha! Greetings from Maui and yes I brought my computer so I could check the Taffy blog. I plan on making quilt-as-you-go table runners for Christmas gifts this year. I will have 2 room mothers and several friends to sew for. The pattern has a novelty print square set on point in the middle and then strips sewn through the batting and backing on a 45 degree angle on each side. They whip up quickly and are well received. Thanks for the give-away!

  2. my wish is simple, i want to make a rag quilt christmas tree, wallhanging. i have all the stuff, just NO TIME!
    and in my spare time i want to make a throw for the living room in nice colors, instead of the ugly things the kids bring out. ;)
    and then a "something" for my bedroom that uses pieces of my wedding. ie, bridesmaid dress fabric, and my dress fabric and some other lovelies. just for the memory.

  3. I have a new love for all things apron. I plan to make myself and my sister each one of these aprons for Christmas this year: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/remembering-christmas-past2
    I also wish someone (my super talented aunt to be exact) would make me a rag quilt. She made a quilt for my daughter already this year with embroidered nursery rhymes on several of the squares.
    I also think that I am going to make some nursing covers for several friends who are expecting. I am sure I will use a bunch of super stylish fabrics for these. :)

  4. Oh I forgot to add that one of my very good friends just had her first child (a little girl) and I plan to cut up parts of my bridesmaid outfit from my friend's wedding and turn it into something cute for the baby's nursery. I am just not sure what yet. Thankfully part of my dress was this pretty pink material and the baby was a girl. So it will all work out.

  5. At the moment I am awaiting the birth of my first grandchild, so I am totally into making baby items -- bibs, quilts, wall hangings. I haven't had such fun in quiltmaking for years as all the projects are done with love. I appreciate your great give-away.

  6. I would love to make myself a quilt, but I'm busy making a king-size one for my girlfriend getting married in October. I had some Heather Bailey fabric set to the side so I could make my own, then I started making aprons out of them. Oops. In time it will all work out, right now I'm just going with the flow.

    Blessings,
    Jenny in VA

  7. Let's see, I'm wanting to make a bathrobe, a clutch, a skirt, and a bunch of other stuff. I write all my ideas down in a notebook so that I don't feel like I have to remember them. I will be soooo busy until Wednesday, that Mom made me put the notebook away and not even think about what I want to do. Yeah right! :) It's helping a little bit, but I still can't wait to get started on something new. Of course, I need to finish some ufos first!

  8. I need to get started on reupholstering a favorite chair. A task so daunting I've been putting it off for...years...so that's what I'd do. Love some of the decorator weights that have come out but I really want to make some quilted fabric to then use to either slipcover or reupholster.

  9. What would I make... my stash is so large, but I am always searching for more. I would like to make a queen sized quilt for my youngest daughter. I just don't have the time!! Would you do it for me - please.....

  10. I'm in the process of making one of the many Christmas gifts for this year, a picnic quilt and then I want to design a picnic tote for the quilt and all those things that just don't fit into a cooler. All my gifts get posted back to australia, so I need to be on the ball and ahead of schedule to be able to get them mailed in plenty of time. DD has also requested a wall hanging and some Christmas cushion covers so I need to figure those out as well.

  25. What would I like to make? Oh so many things! I love to try new things for my 3 year old daughter, I'm very into making covered button jewelry and hair accessories (and would love to make them for christmas gifts this year!), and appliqued burp cloths. I have quite an obsession with fabric...it's dangerous for me to go to the fabric store without a project in mind. I'll buy something just because I like it!

  37. I would love to make something for everyone on my list. But that won't happen...and I'm not quite creative enough. I would, however, like to try and make a quilt for my husband. I've made them for many of the other family members, but never for him.

  41. I've had long skirts for my girls on my mind. I'm so frustrated that all the skirts in the stores for girls are miniskirts. It has been very frustrating. Perhaps I'll just have to make some cute ones for my girls instead!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would love to make a nine-patch quilt in a beautiful mix of floral colors.

    Just a little note: I'm not familiar with your site at all, having just found you through Bloggy Giveaways. It was hard for me to locate your products for sale. In fact I'm not sure I did or if I looked at vendors that you had linked to your site.

    I'll admit I am getting old and needing the good old bifocals...so it may just be me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Right now I'm making nursing pads in anticipation of the birth of #3. With the scraps I'm going to make some softies for #1 and #2. I'd really like to try my hand at a patchwork quilt. I've never quilted before. Thanks for the chance to win!

  54. I have just recently, as in a month or so ago, fell madly and passionatley in love with sewing!

    Being on a super tight budget for Christmas this year...I am super excited to make tons of homemade gifts this year for Christmas...although I think I may be biting off more then I can chew.

    I will be making a quilt for my parents (I'd like to make two, but there's the whole time issue and all) to use in their camper. I am making rice/heating bags with sports related cases for two of my BIL's and my FIL. I will be making crayon rolls for my niece and nephews. And I am planning to make box bags for my sister and SIL.

    Oh...and that is just the beginning...but most likely all I'll be able to finish before Christmas unless I quit my job and sew all day long. With the exception of not being able to afford fabric, that doesn't sound so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would LOVE to be able to make some pretty skirts. I also need to have a little girl to make them for.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am making a braid quilt out of a jelly roll of Winter. I may also make a tree skirt. I'd like to possibly make a Christmas and Thanksgiving apron....maybe I need a Halloween one too.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I would love to make some things for Christmas, but I don't even have a machine yet! I am looking right now and I plan to buy one in August. Having some fabric to start out with would be great; plan to visit your site for future projects, also!

  61. I would love to make some fun purses and aprons even though I don't cook. It would be a funny joke for my boyfriend. I love Michael Millers ginger blossoms fabric. Did I tell you how much I love this fabric. Wouldn't it be great in purses and an apron.

  66. this is the best idea. honestly. I love fabric, and being a new sewer (sounds like I'm not alone) I am in fabric lust constantly!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I am lovin all the handmade bags so I would love to make some. One to keep and the others to give away. Thanks katie_mmartin at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  73. I will probably just make cookies again for most people - I would have thought people might get tired of that, but the year I didn't make them a lot of people asked. I knit and sew for birthday gifts sometimes, but at Christmas there are just too many things that would have to be ready at once.

    ReplyDelete
  74. For Christmas, I am making my friends and family an apron. I also am having a baby in September, so I love any baby fabric and any baby stuff!!!

  75. I really want to make some kids' clothes and quilts. I have 2 little boys though (20 months & 2 weeks) so time just doesn't exist yet. I really need to find space though. I don't have a tutorial yet, but I'd like to make some baby/toddler PJ's out of cloth napkins (or fabric that size). I already made a mommy's helper apron for a friend out of a large cloth napkin.

  82. I once saw a stuffed, sewn Christmas tree. It was pretty neat, and probably not hard to make with a pattern. I'd love to make one, or have someone make it for me would be even better.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My latest quilting idea is to take drawings my 3 and a half year old grand daughter made me and turn them into a quilted wall hanging or small doll quilt for her use.

  96. I can't sew at all, how sad is that? But my mom, she's a mad quilter these days. She has been consumed with quilting for the last three or four years. If I win this one, it all goes to her. Maybe she'll make me some kind of cool wall hanging with her winnings!

  98. Tote bags! I have a love for all things tote bag, and we're also in need of a few new ones for grocery shopping.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I want to make handmade pillowcases and embroider them. I have not sewn much so I don't know if that's being unrealistic, but it's a pillowcase right? I mean, it can't be that hard can it?

    I also have a quilt pattern that my mom bought me to make my first quilt. I want to make it with Ginger Blossom fabric, but haven't saved up enough for the fabric yet! (so if I won I would be so excited!!!)

    Thanks for asking that question, it's fun to see what everyone else is working on/wants to work on.

  100. I've never done a quilt, but I've started sewing dresses and shirts for my 2 year old. I'm going to have my mom sew my wedding dress (nothing fancy just a simple dress) soon. I bookmarked you so I could check out all the patterns you have. I would love to win $40 worth of fabric because I am no longer allowed to buy fabric. I went a little crazy at the last few JoAnns sales and have a couple hundred dollers worth stashed in rubbermaid containers!

  101. I'm hoping at some point to make something for myself -- probably a vintage dress. I think I'll do aprons for everyone for Christmas, though --

  106. Oh I'm not the best seamstress so I'd probably whip up something fairly straight forward like a tot bag or maybe some sachets to finally use that packet of lavender that's been sitting here for a month waiting for me to make sachets to put it in... or I'd beg and plead with my mom to spend the rest of her summer off sewing my up a fabulous quilt! ;)

  113. I wish that I could sew anything. At the moment, I am trying to sew a button on some pants for my husband. Try being the keyword. Neither my mother nor any of my grandmothers sewed, so I have never had anyone teach me anything. In our house if a button fell off, you were out of luck. Now with three children, that is not an option, so I am trying to teach myself, LOL:)

  114. I use to sew when I was a teen, my mom was a seamstress!! I lost interest over the years! Now that I am 50 I want to start sewing again but I need a sewing machine. Been thinking I could make bath towels for everyone for Xmas!!

  116. Just received an item I ordered from your store. Thanks! I am always making something. I mean ALL THE TIME. I had to take a little break, but snuck in a throw pillow today and next up will be a purse for myself. I make bags, dish towels, headbands, wristlets, window treatments, slipcovers. You name it. I have made one baby quilt so far.

  118. I want to make dolls for my nieces and stuffies for my nephews. I enjoy simple projects like these because they make memorable gifts for the kids without costing us a ton. I also want to make a quilt to send to my mom who I haven't seen in three years due to living half way across the country (literally) from her.

  119. My list is on going currently I am trying to find patters to help me become more organized so that I can find everything.

  120. I am going to do something with the Mary Englebreit Christmas charms and panel. Maybe just half square triangles all around the panel-maybe not. Can't decide, but it is the only thing I will do for myself for Christmas this year I am sure. I have already designed and made a large tablerunner pattern out of Winter by Moda, and a large lap size quilt out of Faye Burgos' Christmas line as well-that one was very traditional. I am still finishing the instructions on that one. These were both exclusives for shops here in Utah.

    Feeling a little Christmas-ed out already! I do love It's Snowing by Moda too. I may buy it just to hoard it for now....
    I think the Christmas quilt (Christmas quilt # 3 so far!)I made for The Material Girls where I work, will go to my Mom as a Christmas gift. That one was out of a line by Henry Glass fabrics.

    Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus- and I am now sick of Christmas fabric in July!!!! :) Bah Humbug! ;)

  122. I think my other comment could maybe win the prize for longest comment---Sorry! Didn't mean to be long-winded. Lastly I forgot to say I think I will NOT make anyone anything for Christmas this year.

  123. I would love to make a quilt that I saw in a magazine--- it was a Fons & Porter pattern that used Anna Griffin rose fabric. I've never tackled a quilt before, and I'm a little nervous to start. Maybe I'll start with pillows first.

  124. I'm not sure what I would make. With the economy being so poopy, I would like to make quite a few gifts this year for Christmas and involve my daughters in it too. Maybe pillows? Or lapquilts?

    ReplyDelete
  125. wow, fabric! i would love to win!

  126. I heart fabric. I want to make alot of things. For my boys- capes and a tote bag. Build up my inventory my etsy shop that hasn't open yet.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Oh gosh, I want to make a Christmas quilt for my new granddaughter Annika and the adorable stacking rings from Heather Bailey...in my last scraps of Freshcut and of course her first Christmas stocking. Whew...thats just the list for the baby!

  128. I would love to learn to make a quilt. My aunts all quilt and so did my Grandma, but I haven't learned!

  129. I have been wanting to make a quilt for our queen size bed for years now. I had made one about 12 years ago and it's falling apart. I don't want someone else to make it. I want to make it myself. It just seems more special that way.

  133. I think I would like to try the trendy aprons.

  134. My mother in law got a me a sewing machine for Christmas and I'm still learning how to use it. I would like to make clothes for myself, blankets for my boys beds. Most of all I'd like to do a detailed quilt for my bed, but I know that's far into the future.

  135. I'd love to make some fabric nativity crafts. A nativity quilt, especially.

    I also need a new Christmas runner.

  136. I have been wanting to make curtains for my living room and dining room and one to "hide" my storage under my bar.

  137. Hi from Perth, West Australia!!
    I would love love love someone to make me something for a change!! I seem to spend my life making things for everyone, finishing off other people's projects (cos they just don't have time and apparently I do) doing other people's mending, or showing other people how to make things!! It would be sooooo lovely for someone to take the time to make me something, anything!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I would love to be able to make curtains out of antique fabrics, but thats an expense for our permanent home.

    What I'd really like is for my brother-in-law to teach or make me one of his crazy quilt Christmas stockings! It takes him a full 8 hours to create one. They look and feel better then anything out on the market during the holidays! If he has his way they will be on Zen cart soon with the buyer being able to custom order (size/color combonations/fabric)

  139. I just posted on my blog the dress I just finished. I'm new to sewing and need all the help I can get. But I actually bought fabric to make Christmas pillow cases for this year. Something easy no doubt! Some free fabric would be great.
    Blessings,
    Kim

  140. usually I buy my childrens dresses for Christmas..this year I am hoping tosew them myself!!!

  141. I wish I could make a quilt. I haven't spent a lot of time sewing. But I really want to learn. I have fabric and patterns and supplies stashed for when I get started someday. Maybe this winter I'll finally get around to it. I have a SIL who sews a lot. I'd probably buy some fabric for her with this prize.

  142. I have scads of Sandi Henderson Farmer's market fabric as well as Heather Bailey FreshCut and Pop Garden on it's way. I'd love some time to brew something up with some of them!! I know not Christmas related but, sooo much fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  143. wow it's getting crowded in here. i hate crowds. but they're all quilters or want-to-be-quilters. so i'm o.k. this is the time of year i try to pin down what i am going to make for xmas. i have a few ideas i am contemplating. but my xmas present for others is that if you are wishing that you want to start sewing or that you are saying that you want to start quilting - that you make that wish come true. because it can be very rewarding.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Oh I just got into making fabric buttons I love those...and I have also been wanting to make one of those chalkboard placemats for me kids but haven't been able to find the chalkboard fabric yet LOL. I've just started this whole sewing thing so its all an adventure for me!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I love fabric!! It will definitely be sewn into something beautiful...thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I am a starter sewer (daughter and wife of much more experienced sewers - maybe that's why I never tried - until I became Mommie)and need some fabrics to make some of my starter projects: baby tunics and PJs, a crib sheet, cushion covers. Free fabric would be such a big motivation ;)

    ReplyDelete
  147. So, So many things I'd like to sew. First up though, perfecting my apron design...

    As a side comment though, THANK YOU for not having auto play on for your playlist!!!!! That turns me away from so many blogs and it's a shame. I love the feature, but until your blog didn't realize auto play was an option. Now I'll go play...

    ReplyDelete
  148. Wow...so many things that I could make....aprons, placemats, curtains, pinafores, or a quilt for my girl. I love fabric. :D

  151. I would love to have the ability to make my own baby a mini-quilt/blanket with retro/fun fabric on one side and chenille or fleece on the other. However, I am not crafty, nor do I sew. So in truth, I really, really, really hope someone makes one for me. he, he. Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  160. What I WISH I could make - a t-shirt memory quilt for my ds and one for my dh. I am sort of afraid to cut up dh's rowing shirts without his consent but then it wouldn't be a surprise!

  161. Awesome Giveaway! Right now I'm working on my summer stash quilt. Next up is bed skirt and window valance for my daughter's room. I also am making a skirt for my craft room table (already bought fabric from you guys for this!). I would like to try Sandi Henderson's 'Claire' pattern (CUTE). For the holidays, I want to make a new tree skirt - I am thinking 3 sisters Peace on Earth, now I just need to find a cute pattern!! AND, about 20 other projects in mind as well!

  162. I am so glad I found your site! I am always looking for new fabric! This Christmas I want to make my daughter a stocking. My Mom made ours growing up, and now that my daughter will actually understand a little bit about Christmas (she is 14 months old) I would love to continue that tradition and give her her own handmade stocking! Thanks for the giveaway!

  163. I wish someone would make me a cute maternity skirt. None of my clothes are fitting well and I'm struggling to come up with something. Why do retail stores think pregnant moms want to wear minis?
    Hope you have a great week!

  167. I just finished my first garment, but I would LOVE to make a quilt. I have a design figured out, but I am stuck at the "fabric selection" phase. I started sewing last summer, and I am totally smitten!

    ReplyDelete
  168. Wow, you are making me think a little. Confession: I haven't thought much (at all) about Christmas gifts yet. I should start to do that though, shouldn't I.
    I am a fabric FIEND, you hear? LOVE it. I'm not entirely sure what I would make, but I would definitely be making it at home on my old trusty sewing machine. Maybe some new fabrics would inspire me to greatness. :) One thing I would like to do is sew a few Amy Butler purses. I could use the fabrics for that! :)
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  169. I love to sew but unfortunatly me and my machine seem to be stuck on quilts (especially rag quilts) I saw some adorable pieced Christmas Stockings on a blog last year and would love to have a pattern for something like that! Thanks so much for the great giveaway! audrajjensen(at)msn(dot)com

  170. My aunt has just started making me clothes and I love it...I want to learn. Especially because my husband has really short legs and can't get pants to fit him in stores, so it would be nice to be able to hem some pants for him instead of paying $15 a pop! Thanks!

  192. I'm very busy making quilts for all my family members and some friends. I'm using scrappy patterns so that I can use up some of my huge stash. I know I can't finish all of them in time for this Christmas, but those who don't get one this year will get one next year. I already have 2 tops done waiting to be quilted and all the blocks for one more. Wish me luck!

  196. I've gotten sick of all the unflattering tops they have in stores right now. I've spent two pregnancies wearing billowy maternity tops. Why would I want to wear something that looks like a maternity top when I'm not even pregnant?!
    So... I found the cutest shirt pattern with a trim waistline and three sleeve possibilities, and I think I'm going to make a whole collection of them out of different fabrics! Think anyone will notice? ;)

  198. Well, I'd love to make a quilt even though I'm not very good at sewing, but I bet I could talk my sister into helping 'cause she's really good!

  200. I'm a bit of a novice, but I'd try to make my daughter cute, age-appropriate clothes. (I'm a bit tired of seeing clothing for 2-3 year olds with writing across the tush!) I also can't wait to check out the patterns in your side-bar.

    Enter me, please!
