Fun Children's Panels and a Giveaway
I have a winner: Susan L. of Connecticut. Congratulations, Susan.
Thanks to everyone who left a comment. Stay tuned for more fabric giveaways!
Storybook VIII (that's 8 in Roman numerals, btw!) is the sweetest reproduction 1930s collection. Believe it or not, there are 52 different prints/skus. It came out several years ago and I have many of the prints. But the one that tells a story is the one that tells a story!
I was able to get 3 sets from the yard of fabric and decided to NOT make another quilt for my granddaughter (and her mother thanks me). I took the 7 panels and machine stitched them to card stock so she and her brother Javier can actually read them as a book. What do you think?

The 7 panels are NOT the same size. That's because they were printed in a random arrangement on the yardage. Notice the pink card at the top right with the dancing bunny. I had to cut triangles off the corners because it couldn't be cut square (or the bunny would have lost his head!) You have to get creative with the setting and I KNOW you can do it!
I have made many quilts using reproduction fabrics. Windham has rolled out several. Here's one that ran in the Keepsake Catalog a few years ago. It features Storybook Vacation. I used my dresden butterflies pattern.

I bet you're asking: OK. Where's the GIVEAWAY? I have one set of these panels cut out and ready for you to make into a quilt or story cards or whatever. I'll throw in 5 long quarters (9" x 44") and two extra reds (not quite fat quarters). How's that?
Rules for the Giveaway:
- Must be living in the USA. International postage is prohibitive for me and I'm truly sorry!
- Tell me how long you've been following my blog (an estimate is fine).
- What is your favorite style of fabrics (batik? Civil War? Modern? 1930s?)
- I MUST have your email. If in doubt, then send me a separate email with your answers: email@example.com
