My favourite summer memory wad definitely our family trip to the beach - our last family getaway before our daughter left us with an empty nest! I do love this fabric line - fingers crossed!

Pam said...

Warm air and long days are my favorite memories of summer. I am sad to watch them leaving us. I would probably use this fabric in a quilt if I won

Pam said...

I tweeted this giveaway. @nalaxu

Faith said...

Oh, my favorite summer memory would have to be re-reading The Help while watching my kids play in the pool. Our bedroom is a beachy theme, so I'd likely use this fabric for some throw pillows...or maybe all sewed together and made into a dust ruffle since I don't have one yet.

Kristy said...

Very pretty! My favorite summer memory was relaxing at the beach with my family. I love watching the kids love the ocean, and I love not having to watch the clock! :)

Thanks for the chance to win! Not sure what I'd make....hmmm...maybe something for our trip next year! ;) Already READY!!!

Susan said...

Absolutely love this fabric. My memories are not 2011 but are for many trips to the Oregon coast. Mom and I would get away, just the two of us. Walk the dog on the beach. Eat clam chowder and small shrimp salads at Mo's in Newport. Poke around in antique and junk shops. Stay at Sailor Jack's and have a fire at night in one of their little metal cone shaped fireplaces.

Mimi said...

A family reunion on my husband's side was a great trip with many fun memories! We all had a hoot!

Mimi said...

Mimi said...

I would probably make a lap quilt with this beautiful bundle!!

Remembrances said...

I would use these fabrics for a toy dog I want to make for my nephew! The colors and prints would be perfect!

Remembrances said...

Oh, and my most memorable day of this summer (although summer isn't NEARLY over here in AZ!) was not a happy one - it was the day I was laid off! But it has all turned out to be a blessing really, although I have not yet gotten a new job.

Kwilt Noob said...

This is going to sound strange, but my favorite Summer memory is early morning walks with my pups when the sun was just coming up and the heat hadn't hit yet. Who says dogs don't smile??

Kwilt Noob said...

I told all my tweeples about it!

Kwilt Noob said...

....And I Facebooked too!

Billy'sgirl said...

My favorite memory made this summer was a family trip to Maine: Mom,sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. I hope to make a quilt to remember Summer 2011 with these fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

Kim Q said...

Nice giveaway...I love the prints!

Barbara on the Eastern Shore said...

If I won, I would arrange the bundle so I could admire the fabric to my heart's content!

Faith said...

Tanya said...

My favorite memory would be our summer vacation, 2 weeks away from home for the first time as a family of 4. Our daughter loved showing her baby brother her favorite place!

Mommarock said...

Well this couldn't be more fitting.. we drove to Maine for my daughter's wedding.. thankfully Hurricaine Irene tempered her ways long enough for the wedding to take place on Saturday, and then on Sunday it was just a Tropical Storm.. we did just fine, and the wedding was just beautiful!!

Mom2RyandSis said...

My favorite summer memory was definitely our trip to the beach watching my kids play in the sand and jumping in the waves was wonderful. Not sure what I would make but I absolutely love the Sea Kelp in gray. Thanks for the giveaway.

Diane H said...

We attended a family wedding held at Niagra Falls (Canada). It was very hot but wonderful. Thanks.

scottylover said...

Hmm...not much going on this summer, but I would have to say watching my nephew graduate from high school was a highlight. He's now off at college and having a wonderful time.

I'd make a quilt for my other nephew who also graduated this year out of the bundle if I win!
Thanks,
Sandy A

Pamela Nees said...

Fave summer memory is going to Hilton Head Island with my daughter, son-in-law and our three grandkids-a wonderful week! I'd use this to make a lovely lap quilt...and anything left over would be for a couple of mug rugs!

annmarie said...

I'm sooo glad someone else is not ready to give up summer. I want it to last & last. Winter is far tooo long in northern Wisconsin. I went on a bus tour this summer of Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail near South Bend, Indiana - it was great & will be my favorite summer memory for years to come.

annmarie said...

I posted about the giveaway on my FB wall - if my friends win they have to give it to me - ha ha! Thanks for the chance!

My best summer memory is our family trip to Destin with our kids and grandkids, and our little foster grandson hoping to adopt!

Cherie said...

My favorite memory is our beach vacation and a trip to the waterpark with our 7 year old :) I just LOVE waterparks, and I love that she is just as crazy as I am about them, too :) I think I would make a quilt to remind me of that vacation.

jennifer gail said...

Pretty, I'm not a Summer person. I'm so lloking forward to Fall. thanks

My favorite 2011 memory is the birth of another sweet grandniece and time spent with my mother, each of us quilting in our chair.

WoolenSails said...

I just love what you did with this fabric, it would be so fun to work with. I have lots of summer memories, I love summer. One of my favorites is when my family went to Dutch island and explored the old bunkers and had a picnic on the beach.

Debbie

ledamewood said...

Favorite summer memory was spending a few days at the beach with son and his wife and children. And of course I would make a quilt with it and dream about putting on a bed at the beach house I hope we will someday buy or build.

ledamewood said...

A friend told me, and I've passed along the news of the giveaway to 3 more friends.

ellen said...

It's summer everyday where I'm at and each day is a blessing and memorable for me. But my best 'summer' memories are watching the whales play while picnicking at Black Sand Beach.

We haven't had 2011 summer yet here in Australia. We've just finished with winter! My favourite memories of summer are sitting outside on warm nights and having bbq's with family and friends.

My favorite summer memory actually just occurred when I went to Tacoma to the PWQS. What a great way to end the summer.

I guess for me this year the highlight of my summer was my old dog reaching the age of 18 years!!! She is still here too, now 18 years and 5 months, so she is pretty special. Linda x

Summer memory? Where did summer go? I guess it would be a visit from my daughter who took a small vacation and came home. Wow, the time is flying.

yorkie mom said...

Would love to go Coastal! It would make a great bed quilt for my new guest room! My favorite memory of summer is sitting by the fire while camping chatting with my friends!

Keven said...

My favorite summer memory was a family vacation to the Isle of Palms, SC. Six of my grandchildren were there. Oh, what fun. If I won I'd use fabric to make items for family room to be reminded of our great family tim.

My 2011 summer memories are of rain, rain and more rain and floods. The best memory is of tghe community rallying to work together and help each other.

Ruth B said...

My favorite summer memory is the time I spent with my grandchildren. I have 3 of the most adorable and funny grandkids in the world. Love em to the moon. If I were to win these gorgeous fabrics I would make a table topper for my new (to me) 1950's formica table that I just purchased from Craigslist. Love it!

Emma Thomsen said...

This is such lovely fabric and I'm now following. My favourite Summer Memory is our Summer Holiday at Center Parcs and spending pretty much the entire time in the pool with our children!

Emma Thomsen said...

I have now Tweeted this great Giveaway! Not sure what I would make with it, a patchwork beach blanket seems appropriate!

My favorite thing about this summer is that its ending. It has been way too hot! Cant wait for fall. I would love to win and would turn it into a great quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

Beth said...

For me, summer 2011 will be about family gatherings: a 50th anniversary and a wedding. Sweet, sweet memories. If I'm the lucky winner, I think I'll make a quilt for my friend Pam, who shared many beach outings with me when we were growing up in a Southern Cal beach town.

LilyKGonzales said...

This collection is the cutest! My favorite summer memories always include enjoying outdoor cooking with the family, whether it is barbeque in Texas with mine or lobster feed with my husband's family in Maine. And this fabric collection makes me think of those fabulous yankees in Maine! But I would make something for myself so I could think of them when I saw it!

Peggy said...

Our trip to Virginia this summer was great-we visited relatives we hadn't seen in quite a while, did some sightseeing and ate a lot of delicious food. Beautiful fabrics-I would use the fabric for tote bags that I make for my group, World of Charity Stitching.
Thanks,

LOVE this fabric line (especially because I'm a marine biologist)! My favorite moment was my birthday. I went to see the last Harry Potter (yay and boo at the same time), went bowling, and then went out for dinner and drinks. It was the first birthday I can remember that I enjoyed without drama or unmet expectations.

My favorite memory of this summer was when my daughter brought my grand daughter to visit. She was 9 months old at the time, I was trying to get her to say granny. She took one look at my cat and said "Blue"!!!!
ARUGHGHG! LOL

Nancy said...

Oh wow! I just bought this fabric bundle from you a couple days ago! But I love it enough that I'm still hoping I win the giveaway, because I can think of a hundred other things that I would love to do with this fabric. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

My favorite summer memory has been the time I've spent with my 6-year old granddaughter. I had her a week for spring break and then had her the week of July 4th. We had such a great time together and did things her mom would have had a fit about (I even let her eat an ice cream sandwiches which she was having her bath! - she had a blast doing that!). If I won the fabrics, I'd either make a quilt or a tote/bag (cuz I love totes/bags and quilts - THAT's why!)

Needled Mom said...

It is hard to imagine that summer has gone. There were so many memories made, but perhaps the most fun was camping and fshing with the family. It was made even more exciting with bears in our campground.

Mini MNM's said...

My favorite summer memory from this summer was spending time in the pool with my boys! (3 boys under 3!) I would most likely make a quilt or some sort of car blanket with it!

Lisa Marie said...

I especially enjoyed having my son home for the summer. Those daily interactions are precious. Now he's in his last year of college and likely won't be living here again. Having him grown and self-sufficient is a good thing, but still bittersweet.

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

Favorite summer memory . . . Easily moving home after 10 years of bouncing around the country for school :) Best summer ever!!!

It may sound weird but I had fun school shopping with my kids this Summer.

Kim Q said...

Love the fabric, but there's not a darned thing about this summer that I care to remember. I lost my son, the earthquake moved the floor beneath my feet, and Hurricane Irene swamped us with rain. I'm looking for the end to all this stuff!

Lee Ann said...

My favorite Summer 2011 memory is Schlitterbahn Water Park (New Braunfels). But, that could change when we go to North Padre this coming weekend! :-D

Thank you for a chance to win. :-)

My favorite summer 2011 memory will always be getting my new HQ Avante. I've had the best summer, playing in my sewing room! And I'd use this gorgeous fabric to make a Twister quilt or pinwheels, it's perfect for that summery feel!

Jenn said...

My favorite memory from this summer was my son's 12th birthday! It's a big deal, and his grandparents even flew in from CA to OK to be there to see their grandson turn 12. If I won this fabric, I'd make a quilt, naturally! It's a fun, seasonal fabric, so I'd have to find an equally summery pattern to make. Thanks for the opportunity!

Jenn said...

I shared it on facebook via the little link you have at the bottom of your post!

lisawith4 said...

I live on the Oregon Coast so this fabric would fit in very well with the style around here!
I'm so sad that summer is over and my kids are back at school.
Camping is my favorite summer thing!
thanks for the giveaway!

Pat V. said...

My favorite summer memory would have to be my trip to Sisters with some quilting buddies! I've been making more charity quilts, so these fabrics would go to a foster child's quilt.

Deb said...

Favorite summer memory: going away for a special time for our 31st anniv. I'd make a quilt and love that fabric.

quiltzyx said...

My favorite summer memory was the Twilight Car Show & Movie night we had at my work. We had about 70 gorgeous cars show up & then watced American Grafitti on a big inflatible movie screen! We had a blast! :D

Jessica said...

My favorite memory from this summer was being in Prague, Czech Republic and standing on the Charles Bridge - it was the most beautiful place I've ever been. I'd love to make a beach blanket (quilted) out of these fabrics!

Kathy said...

Beautiful prize bundle. Thank you so much for the chance to win it.

Amy said...

hm............my favorite memory......I think it would be spending time with my brother and his fiance.

Janet said...

My favourite summer memory is a day sailing back in June. Our weather has been crappy since then and I haven't had any holidays so there has been much memory making material.

Anna said...

Being told that my PhD thesis had been accepted!!

Shannon said...

My favorite summer memory would be my son getting married on Aug 13. He and his bride live with us for a while. I love them so much. If I won this bundle I would make a quilt for myself. I love the ocean and this would be perfect! Thank you!

Jo said...

My favorite summer memory this year (wow have to think I didn't do much this summer.) I guess it would have to be the motorcycle ride to Fossil OR to dig fossils. No digging of fossils was accomplished as we had picked the weekend that the town ws having a classic car show and bluegrass festival. It turned out to be a fun weekend and the only ride we got to take this summer.I really like this fabric! It reminds me of where I grew up in New England! I am not sure what I would make but I do know that it would be for ME!

PDXPam said...

My fave memory of this summer was the day my son and daughter in law had a reveal party to let us know that after 5 granddaughters (2 theirs and 3 my other son and daughter in law's) we are FINALLY having a grandson... It was pretty cool actually. Both grandpas cut into a cake to reveal BLUE filling inside.

PDXPam said...

Val Laird said...

Favourite summer memory would have to be having many of our family around - lots of laughs, sandcastles on the beach, cooking favourite meals ... That fabric is crying out to be made into some lovely bright bags.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

My best memory this summer is having both of my tiny grandsons together(and their parents) at our house for 4 days. Not sure what I would use the fabric for yet. It sure would be fun to figure out what to do with it! Thanks so much for the chance!

Peggy said...

My grandson loves the beach and the Florida Keys and the color orange. This fabric looks like it has his name all over it. I've been looking for the perfect fabric to make him a quilt. He is 3 1/2. Favorite summer memory is Father's Day spent in the Keys!

Barbara said...

My favorite summer memory is going to the farmer's market with my son and daughter in law. I would use the fabric for quilting.

Julie @ Knitting and Sundries said...

How gorgeous! I'd have to buy some more fabric to go with it. My project now for 2011-2012 is to make quilts for each of my children and grandchildren, so that's eight quilts altogether! :)

My favorite memory this summer is going out to my son's camping trip with the Cub Scouts for a couple of days (he's a Boy Scout, but he and another went with the Cub Scouts to be leaders this summer). I love camping, and I loved spending that time with him :)

Mama Spark said...

My favorite summer memories always occur in northern MI. Camping, swimming, skiing and camp fires, crayfish hunting, sigh, I miss summer already! I would use the fabric to make a quilt.

Melody said...

Last summer my first grandchild was due and now Henry is here I would use this fabric to make him a quilt.

LethargicLass said...

My niece and nephews came down South for a visit :) I would probably create a wall hanging with this to remind me of summer during the Canadian winter LOL

LethargicLass said...

I tweeted the giveaway... not sure how to show you but I see people doing this lol @LethargicLass

Jen said...

My favorite summer memory is not being able to find a camping site on the fourth of July and instead stumbling across this totally fun bar and having a fabulous night!

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Summer 2011 is just around the cnr for all here inAust so my fav part that I am looking forward to is spending time with the children and sitting back with a good book (on the Kindle!) whilst they play inthe pool. Thanks for the chance

Kathy said...

Beautiful fabric - and perfect for the season :)

...long days, relaxed attitudes, warm sunshine, floaty dresses, sand between toes, laughing children, home-made lemonade, tomatoes warm from the garden, the smell of meat on the bbq, hugs from friends, red wine......

Best memories - gardening with the boys

Fabric- likely duvets or quilts for the boys!

Rose M. said...

Watching fireworks with my ENTIRE family (kids, spouses, grandkids) on our boat. Great time! I would probably make a quilt if I won "Going Coastal" to keep on the boat.

Rose M. said...

I've e-mailed 6 of my friends about the giveaway.

MomMac said...

Love your site. I always love seeing the new fabrics. Going Coastal would make a wonderful lap quilt or a cool looking bag. Here's hoping to win.

Joyce said...

This would be a great way to end the summer! On the few cooler days we had, we enjoyed kayaking. I might treat myself to a bag with this collection - to take to the beach!

Joyce said...

I emailed 3 friends about this giveaway! (Maybe they'll share...)

free indeed said...

Summer 2011 has certainly been a summer of visitors! My only sister came to visit...hadn't seen her in two years! My oldest son and his family of 5 kids (all under 7) came for two weeks. One of those weekends, my other two marrieds came for a total of 10 grands under 7 at the table....what will I do when they are all teens!!???? And I still have three unmarried kids! Some great times were had by all...

EllenB said...

Finally got to take DGD to the beach this year and these fabs would make a wonderful beach blanket for being lazy in the sun!

This was a pretty uneventful summer. I guess my favorite memories would be picking all the fresh veggies from my garden. I love it and it's always so relaxing. I'd like to use this lovely material to make a quilt for my daughter. Thanks.

Ruth G. said...

my favorite 2011 summer memory would be that this summer I'm living on the beach. I travel for work and work 3 days a weeks so 4 days a week have been vacation. Been here since June and I'll be here until the end of Oct...like an endless summer in south FL

Lisa said...

My favorite memory is the weekend getaway my DH and I took for our anniversary. Love this fabric.

Awesome fabric. My favorite ttime this summer was when our family went to Walt Disney World in June for a week. We had so much fun.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite summertime memory is taking my very first grandchild, my granddaughter Audrey, swimming in our our beach!

cae said...

My favorite summer memory is hanging out with my four small granddaughters. The fabric would be perfect for a picnic quilt when hanging out in the backyard under the oak tree.

If I win this fabric, I would make a quilt for ME, rather than a gift like I often do, because I love it! Thanks for the giveaway.

My favorite summer memory was when the WHOLE family vacationed together in Colorado. We went fishing, hiking, horseback riding and roasted about a million marshmallows over a fire at the end of the day.

My favorite summer memory was our family trip to hubby's family's farm. Our boys are finally old enough to get to experience farming and will remember this trip for a long time. They got to go out to the fields and ride in the equipment to spray / combine / haul. We all had alot of fun! I would love to make a quilt to put on my couch - those colors are so bright & cheerful! Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Memories of the beach, long hot summer days, balmy evenings, barbecues with family and friends, the sound of cicadas and crickets. Hmmmmm bliss.

Christy said...

I loved spending time with my boys on our annual beach vacation this summer. I would use the fabric to make a quilt for my aunt's beach house.

My favorite summer memory was watching my daughter stand up paddle board around the lake. She uses it as her personal diving board.

Judy said...

My favorite memory this summer is my daughter taking me to the beach (Newport,OR) for my 70th birthday. Her daughter's (my granddaughter) 15th birthday is the day after mine so we celebrated it together at the beach. The giveaway? I would probably add it to my stash for a colorful scrap quilt.

My favorite memory is a beautiful walking park in Wake Forest, NC. I went for a walk there everyday of my vacation. I'd use the fabric to make some purses.

Summer is my absolute FAVORITE time of year and this one was no exception. I took up rowing again, after a couple years off. Saturday mornings on the river are just beautiful when the water is still and the air is warm!

Nancy said...

Mt favorite summer memory was a trip to Eastern Europe with my mother - hope I can do this again. Love the fabric - Makes we want to cook some gumbo!! So many uses for a beach house like Mom's!!!

Bridget said...

My favorite summer memory was a boat trip with my sisters and their families on the St John's River. I don't see my sister's often, so any time we can get together is really special. We fished and picnicked and had a great time. I would make a lap quilt with this bundle.

Sue said...
