  121. Dawn March 14, 2013 at 3:01 am #

    I like to work with white. I know a lot of people avoid it, but I think it really offsets the other colors I use in my quilts. The oilcloth looks interesting. I have never seen it before, though I have heard of it. Would be fun to try something with it.

  122. SueAnn Wirick March 14, 2013 at 3:20 am #

    I have to say I’ve always loved green (as in new grass green) and darker Colbert blue

  123. Brandy Lynn March 14, 2013 at 4:01 am #

    Great giveaway! I love those oilcloth fabrics. I could find a project to use those up in an instant! I have never tried them. And the bags are great.

    Be sure to check out my blog hop giveaway too at and enter the draw.
