  1. A comment about any kind of wheels? like the garage full of racing wheels for my hubby and my son's racing cars? Wheels for mud, slush, ice, dry asphalt, dry gravel, you name it, we have it!!! Thanks for the neat giveaway! I would love to have it for my 6 year old grandson who loves (you guessed it!) race cars!

  9. Oh, what adorable fabric! I'm thinking that flannel might need to become pajamas for my son. :-)

    My first set of wheels (of the motorized variety) was a Jeep Wrangler, and before they got kind of "nice" on the inside. It was a tin can on wheels with a giant stick shift. I learned how to drive it when I was 13, and worshipped it when I turned 16. I washed that thing once a week, like it was a Porsche or something.

  10. What an adorable line of fabric. Really cute.
    My first set of wheels was a 1980 white Renault R5. I got it in 1995 and already back then it looked like a vintage car...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Darn, someone already said "the wheels on the bus go round and round"

    My mouse has a trackWHEEL that I use a LOT.
    Thanks for a chance at this.

  12. I love that fabric! My husband has a 1960 Austin Healey with wire wheels. He has had it for 30 years and restored it from a pile of pieces into a fun, beautiful car. I'm always glad that he knows how to fix things!

    ReplyDelete
  13. My first set of wheels was a 1973 Dodge Coronet. It was big and ugly and I loved it.
    Love that wheels fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wheels, eh? I not know what I could possibly say about wheels, other than that "The Wheel of Things" by Mollie Gillian is a great biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. My dream car is a red covertible 1965 Mustang, tan leather interior. That is one cool set of wheels.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Any kind of wheels - the first thing that pops in my head is the green Vega that I bought one summer. I was working in a factory and saved my money to buy this car :) - it was so rusted out that you had to hold the hood up to look at the engine. It didn't have a radio (which made for a boring drive to work) and the color - what was I thinking.:) Happy memories though, it was mine! These fabrics are so cute - would love to win! Thanks for the chance! :)

  17. The first thing that popped into my head was my brother's first car, a 1967 or 68 red Road Runner with nice wheels! He loved that car!
    Have a Blessed Day,

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have raised two boys and know how important wheels are to kids. This fabric would make a delightful quilt and be loved by boys. I'd love to win the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wheels? That drive my husband to work and provide for our family. That my oldest drive he and our youngest to school. Wheels our middlest wants to drive but isn't mature or responsible enough to remember to change underwear. Wheels that take me to the quilt store. And the sewing machine repair store where my handWHEEL is being looked at!
    Wheels.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Our favorite set of wheels is our little yellow Pontiac Solstice--our toy now that our kids are grown!

    ReplyDelete
  25. OK, since no one else has taken the bait - my first thought was, Pinwheels! My quiltalong group (http://www.flickr.com/groups/oldredbarncoquiltalong2009/) is doing pinwheels next - fathis fabric would beg for a terrific punny quilt name like "spinning my wheels!"

    ReplyDelete
  26. Any kind of wheels... then I am going to talk about my daughter's bike. Eden loves her bike. And yesterday I had to pry her off of it for dinner and then it was dark when we were finished. She cried and cried! I would love to win!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Like so many said"The wheels of the bus go round and round" My granddaughter and I sing it a LOT!! The material looks wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My husband had an old bitten car when we met, and we used to drive together everywhere in that car. I loved it! thanks for the memories and the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. last night, my 4 year old daughter and husband were playing with Legos and he made a run to his parents house to dig out his old Legos. Turns out his Legos (now he's 40 years old) were models and one of them being a tractor with big wheels. They both started putting it together last night. they didn't get very far but she's pretty content just pushing the body of the tractor around on the floor with its big wheels.

    Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  31. These fabrics are great!! Wheels? Made me think of my boys riding their Big Wheels. They loved to make donuts and ride through any water they could find!

    ReplyDelete
  32. my current relationship with wheels is freezing my butt off waiting for the bus in the morning....so I need this fabric to turn that into something positive. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wheels huh? Well, what pops into my head is that I need to get my tires rotated. How does the work for a comment on wheels?

    The fabric is really cute!

  35. How about wheels that are spinning, spinning on the polished streets in our town after a 4 day storm. Oh and I simply can't forget {no matter how hard I try}, the pinwheel quilt that I just can't seem to stick with and finish. ARGH!!! I'm so frustrated with this one. However,
    I'd love to relieve you of your wheels!

    hugs,

  36. My second child is getting her license in 2 weeks. After that I'll probably never have my own wheels again.

    ReplyDelete
  37. i should put snow tires on my wheels! :) those fabrics are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  38. How about how I need snow tires (their a wheel, kinda) today really bad?
    Those would be so adorable to make a boy quilt out of.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That fabric is just adorable! I just saw an idea the other day of what to make with that so that my little guy could use his hot wheels on it..

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wheels, huh? I bought myself a Wii with the Wii Fit Plus for my birthday, and my favorite thing so far is the skateboard arena game. I would never step on a real skateboard to save my life, I'd be one of those people with brain damage they use to scare kids off extreme sports, but on the Wii it's a little more basic and I am not terrible! :P

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hot Wheels are my kids favorite :) They may use this before I can grab it as "tracks" :)

  42. After 38 years of marriage I finally got my dream wheels. A VW bug convertible TURBO!! Now I realize it's too small and I can't fit the grandkids in it and I can't git all the sewing stuff in it for retreat...SO NOW, I want my SUV back.LOL

    ReplyDelete
  43. Theses wheels will be perfect for the little men in my life, my two grandsons. But, this grama is dreaming about warm, bug-free days when we can jump on the Harley and let the wind blow through my hair!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very cool fabric collection. Wheels get you where you need to go, from strollers to bicycles to cars to wheelchairs. We are a "wheeling" society!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Spent a lot of time looking for the racecar "Nancy" (I think that was the name) of the "Cars" cartoon show. My three year old grandson is a big fan.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In a unit teaching simple machines, I thought it would be fun to let the kids drive small cars through paint and make the covers for their little books. OH MY! What a mess. I underestimated how much vigor little boys put into driving little cars. Paint everywhere! I love this give away! Adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You know how sometimes people say that the wheels in your brain are turning when you are thinking of some great idea? Well it seems like lately my brain wheels are all flat. Creativity is at an all time low right now. But thanks for the the cute wheel giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My husband is taking our wheels back to the shop today, after the damage a bunny caused under the hood! Baby and I are stuck at home. :)

    BUT -- I've been waiting for this fabric line! The son's getting a new quilt! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. My sister made a wooden checker board and used wooden car wheels for the checkers. It was so cute. I have been thinking of making a quilted checker board and using the wheels for my checkers.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Nice wheels! I actually got a "new set of wheels" last month, but I would love some fabric wheels too! I really love that orange print.

    ReplyDelete
  53. We just had to buy new wheels (actually tires) for the car. Your wheels will be a much better addition to my home.

    ReplyDelete
  54. When I think of wheels, I think of my first ones...my first car, that is! It was my senior year in college (yes, this shows my age...nowadays most kids have one by the time they're 16)...and it was a 1972 Ford Mustang Fastback. I thought I was really cool. The uncool part was that it was always in the shop.

    These fabrics are really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  55. My wheels are spinning with ideas for this cute fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My husband took my set of of wheels to take my daughter skiing. I can't complain, I love that he does things like this, but dang it, I like my wheels better than his. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow... these are really YUMMY!
    The only wheels I can manage are bicycle wheels. Never ever droven a car, motorbike, truck or any other kind of motor vehicle. And I'm sort of proud of it :-)

  58. Ok. Wheels. That brings to mind my first car, a used Pontiac convertible that my Dad gave me. Man, how I loved that car. It was big and got really lousy gas mileage. This was back in my college days and I could fill the tank for $10, and I thought that was outrageous!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love the fabrics! Wheels still brings to mind the accident my husband was in last Thursday night. As he spun around 180 degrees, he saw a wheel go rolling by and thought the guy had knocked his spare off his truck. As he soon discovered, it was not his spare but his rear drivers side wheel! Needless to say, MiMi truck as we affectionately called her, has been totaled and will be sorely missed. Since my son will never get to drive MiMi, maybe I can win and make him a quilt instead. He'll be 8 next Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  61. My 3 year old would love this fabric! When he sees cars or trucks on fabric he always asks me if I can take them off for him to play with! :) He's got lots of wheels at home, log truck wheels, train wheels, truck wheels, car wheels and on and on!

    Finally some cool boy fabric!!! As for wheels....the wheels of my car going to swimming, skating, skiing, playgroup, and in the summer tack on soccer & t-ball!! What would we do without wheels?!?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well, I was thinking about Hot Wheels cars when you said write about any kind of wheels. My son, who is now almost 30, used to love them and had quite a collection. I have been saving them all these years so that his two little boys can play with them when they are old enough. One of them is almost ready. Can't wait to give them to him! I adore that fabric by the way! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  83. When I think of wheels I think of my husband's motorcycle that got stolen. I was sad for him, but secretly glad because I was a so nervous anytime he rode it. Now he wants another one and I am putting my foot down. Maybe he would like a wheels blanket instead! Ha ha.jdouglaslarsen(at)gmail(dot)com

  85. how about the wheels in my brain are spinning with the quilt possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Wheels. My 42 year old husband loves his wheels and is constantly changing them or letting me know of his plan for his next set. My 2 year old daughter loves Daddy's red car (his golf GTI) but hasn't been allowed in his bmw and as for Mummy's Mini van the only thing it's good for is watching Barney or Ariel in it.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I'm afraid of wheels... I need friction! I like slow, controlled movement. BUt the fabric is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  88. My kids are hanging over my shoulder, shouting "slug bug"! This is their kind of fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  89. the wheels in my head keep spinning and spinning, but I'm getting NOWHERE!! :o)

    Wheels... I'm reminded of every HOOP-T-Piece my family has ever owned. The brown stationwagon with wood-paneling, the VW Rabbit (that amazingly fit all 10 of us in it on the way to church- we looked like CLOWNS getting out of it), the Bullet (affectionately named because it ran into a MOOSE and killed it- on the way home from Girl's Camp, no less, with 8 girls in tow), the Grocery Getter (another black station wagon), the Holy Roller (the name given to the mini van in which kids were not allowed to swear), and Piso (the 15 passenger PISO-Junk that became our latest "daily slice of humble pie")... yes, wheels. I'm grateful for them all. :o) Without them I wouldn't have gotten everywhere I needed to be. Although if I could have wished for one thing different it would have to be HEAT in the Bullet at -40F. Yep, we've had some great wheels.

  90. I'm thinking about airplane landing wheels...my son is in Idaho on a job (his first ever commercial flight), and I'm looking forward to him coming back home! I'd love to win your giveaway!

  91. Just the other night I was thinking about the Wheel of Fortune and whether they ever re-use puzzles.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Wheels, wheels, and more wheels! That's all my boys play with. My daughter even gets into the game with her Littlest Pet Shop toys. They ride around her brother's How Wheels. Love the fabrics, and I love your site!

    ReplyDelete
  96. When my husband and I started dating his wheels were a 1978 Buick Regal, fixed up. Now we drive a mini-van.

    These fabrics are so nice for little boys.

    ReplyDelete
  97. So cute! My wheels just got fixed up. I had the front wheel bearings replaced, then one of them busted, so it had to get fixed again! Good thing the shop covered that expense.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Riley Blake 'stuff' is so great! I can't turn the wheel on my sewing machine ...anymore...because...I have a brand new machine! yeah (the kind you don't turn the wheel)Thanks!
