  1. If the top layer's anything to go by, it's a great bundle of fabric! I'm looking for inspiration for a 'big bed' quilt for my daughter for when she moves out of her cot, and this fabric could be a possible candidate!

  2. OOooh I'm first! I follow you on Facebook and subscribe! I'm a big fan and love what you do both in/for the quilting community and with fabric! I love hearing about the family too!
    If I were to win the Frolic I would make myself a superdooper pieced apron – I feel a little selfish but I have had the same Laura Ashley print one for 25 years and I am getting enthused by all the snappy aprons appearing in blogland!

  3. Hi Amy, thanks for the giveaway and festival, it is going to be so much fun! I have a piece of frolic backing but nothing for the quilttop, it is waiting in my drawer for something it 'goes' with and this would be perfect !

  4. Oh Amy! Trust you to have beautiful fabric to giveawy, YUM!!! Don't know what I would make with it! LOL I follow you on FB. :)

  5. Oh wow love the Layer Cake, Amy. Thanks for participating in SMS giveaway. And thanks for entering me :-)

  6. Good Morning Amy!! What a terrific giveaway! I have to say I am looking forward to the festival at the end of the week!!

  7. I'd plot and scheme to come up with a new quilt, of course! I'm a follower of your blog and I follow you on Facebook

  8. I think I'd made a flying geese in the forest quilt – I've had my eye on it for a while – I'd probably make a mini version though because the full size one would take me forever and a day!

  9. If I won, I would incorporate the charm pack into the handbags I make. Well, that is what I think at the moment!

  10. Sandy's Frolic reminds me of the decore in my house when we bought it 23 years ago! So I could make a lap quilt to remind myself of those first years of being in the house and my marriage to my husband. Thanks for the chance Amy.

  11. Love your giveaway, thanks. Not sure what I'd make at the moment. Just finished a quilt and am taking a day or two breather. Also trying to decide which quilt to use for your Quilt Festival!

  12. Hi Amy, I'm already a follower and now I "like" you on Facebook too. That fabric is not my usual thing, gorgeously bright and vibrant, so I think I'd make a bag with it which would be lovely for the summer. Thanks for a great giveaway. Lis x

  13. Love this fabric. I would make a table runner. I have the perfect pattern for it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  14. I would love to make some little pouches – or maybe even start a quilt. As a beginner I can't wait to see what others suggest!

  15. Frolic is so pretty! There's a baby coming up in the family – the first since I started quilting – so you know where that layer cake would go! Already a follower. Thanks Amy!

  16. Oh this is a great giveaway! I've been eyeing the Frolic line for awhile and a layer cake is perfect – it makes up into two baby filmstrip quilts (visit or my blog to see examples) out of one layer cake.

  17. Oh wow. Thanks for a cool give away and the recent tutorials on putting together a quilt! Keep up the bloggie goodness!

  18. Looks so pretty. I've been wanting to make my family a summer quilt to bring to the beach – this could be the perfect reason to get started.

  19. I'm thinking I could either make reuseable shopping bags, a cute shoe bag for dance classes/gym, or maybe line the inside of a few plain black totes and purses I have…

  20. Oh I would love to win this so much! I'm working on a pinwheel sampler right now that I used this fabric for… son's girlfriend likes it so much that I'd use it to make her one too!!

  21. I love the looks of the layer cake! I'd like to see the other fabrics before deciding what to make!
    Thanks for being so Generous!

  22. Lovely cheerful patterns. I think it might go into the next cot quilt I make (for a baby due in September) with hopefully some left to join my huge hoard of precious fabric!

  23. I have been subscribing since the last quilt festival but now I am following too, and I 'like' you on facebook!

  24. Beautiful fabric! I've been itching to make a quick quilt and since I am super busy at work, using a layer cake would be the perfect thing!
    Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  25. I think that I would take a look around the Moda Bake Shop and find the perfect pattern for this layer cake. I love the orange!!

  26. I'm planning quilts for 3 of my good friends, I think this layer cake needs to make an appearance in at least one of them! Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. I enjoy using layer cakes to make baby rag quilts and I have many friends at church who will need baby gifts soon!

    Thanks for sponsoring such a great giveaway.

  28. Wow what funky fabric, well as it is so beautiful I would probably procrastinate over using it for ages!! You know how that goes! Maybe attempt a quilt or maybe use it for my appliqued t-shirts. Feel free to check out my giveaway too!

  29. Lovely fabric, it would make lovely bags for me and my family – I am very much into bags nowadays. Again… :-)


  30. I would definitely use the layer cake for a quilt! I've never used a layer cake before (the precuts can be hard to find in Canada), but I'd love to try!

  31. I'd probably use it to make a baby quilt- 4 friends having babies in the next 2 months means that's pretty much all I'm making lately!

  32. What a great giveaway! Fingers crossed. I would probably make a quilt for my daughter. She just moved into a big girl bed and I made her a gross quilt with Dora the explorer fabric. She needs something much nicer!!

  33. I would make a cake for my little girls toddler bed. Right now she's having to make do with a twin sized comforter smushed in there, and this fabric would look oh so pretty in her room. Thanks for the giveaway, it's awesome!

  34. Hi Amy,

    I would love to make another pinwheel sampler with the layer cake. ItT would be so breezy in those colors.

  35. Great giveaway, I LOVE layercakes, you can do so many things with them, and if you are a bagaholic like me you can get several bags from a single layer cake – it doesn't get much better than that!!

  36. How awesome! There is a pattern, Ahsley's Journey, that I would love to make with this layer cake. What great colors.

  37. I love those fabrics– great colors and patterns! I'd use them for lots of fun appliques for my kiddos. Thanks for the giveaway!

  38. I'm getting ready to start a "handprint" quilt for my mother-in-law. This would be perfect for each of the handprints to make them unique! Thanks for the giveaways, and all your creative ideas!

  39. I love the layer cake you're giving away. I'm sure I would make some type of quilt with it! Layer cakes are just about my favorite bakeshop item!
    I've been subscribing to your blog for many months now, in my Google Reader.

  40. It looks like a really nice selection of fabrics. I think I'd put it aside to be part of a quilt I have in mind.

  41. I have several books and patterns for layer cakes so I would love to win this one. I already subcribe and I'm a follower on facebook. Thanks Amy love reading your post each day.

  42. I just bought my first layer cake about a week ago and am doing a charity cross (pattern on The Moda Bake Shop) so I would either do one of those or do a wonky type of cross…..Layer Cakes ROCKS!!

  43. I've been making some re-usable shopping totes out of ripstop nylon, but they're so plain. I'd love to use this fabric to add some applique.
    hramerh at gmail dot com

  44. Not sure what I would make…I would need to hold it and see how it inspires me!

    My something interesting…I am supposed to be on the way to Florida for a mini-vacation right now, but my dear friend went into labor with her first baby last night, and my daughter started running a high fever and is quite sick…so now I have time to enter the SMS giveaways! :)

  45. Oohhh! I've had my eye on that line and it's definitely going to become a Schnibble when it grows up! Thank You for your generosity!

  46. Hello, very inspirational. i 'like' your facebook page and can't wait to get a minute to look at your tutorials.

  47. I already follow via spun sugar quilts blog. I just love her list of blogs and use her page regularly to read my favorite blogs, but today I added you to my RSS reader.

  48. I would probably make a picnic quilt with the frolic layer cake. Love the bright colors.
    thanks for the three opportunities to win.

  49. What fun fabric! Something "frolicky" maybe with pinwheels…they make me smile! Thanks for the great giveaway…Karendw

  50. Frolic is awesome! How can you not like Sandy's fabrics :) Thanks for the great giveaway…what would I make? a Table runner! and placemats :)

  51. Great giveaway!
    It would first sit on my shelf and look pretty for a while and then it would either become a pretty patchwork outfit, a quilt, a pieced bag…or… I like to have pretty fabric around me for when I'm inspired :)

  52. i would most certainly make these into a quilt…since that is what i prefer…this is really fun fabric. thanks for sharing and being so generous.

  53. So love your blog!
    I would make the circle quilt Julie has over on her site! It is so cute! Circles and hexies must be the in thing now!

  54. Thanks Amy! I just added you to facebook (I already follow your blog). Love the layer cake. Never used one, but it's such happy fabric, I'd have to use it for projects I could share.

  55. love the layer cake you chose! i would make a spring/summer quilt for my living room. the a/c vent blows right down on us while we sit on the sofa, so quilts are still handy in texas in august. imagine that…

  56. Love this prize! I've never had a pre-cut pack before so thsi would be a great start. I'd like to make a simple quilt for picnics in the summer :)

  57. Wow, beautiful, thank you for the chance! I am not sure I could cut into it, but what a great table topper it would make.

  58. I don't know what I would make, but it would be really cute starting with that fabric. Thanks for the chance.

  59. Hi, Amy–pretty fabric, pretty blog. I'm just getting in to sewing (broke my cheap Singer, just inherited my late MIL's Pfaff and cannot WAIT to get started!) I have no earthly idea what I'd make, honestly, but a tote or a placemat sound pretty nice!

  60. I've followed you on Facebook and subscribed. So nice of you to offer up such a great "prize"! And your blog is great!!!

  61. I'm seeing a super cute patchwork baby dress in that layer cakes future! Thanks for the inspiration and the giveaway!

  62. And now, my actual comment!!
    I am thinking this would be beautiful fabric to show off, perhaps a new nappy bag or handbag ;)

  63. Thanks for letting me enter my first giveaway chance ! If I win this , I will make my SECOND quilt top !!! Thanks for doing giveaways ! what FUN this is going to be !

  64. I love frolic. I actually have a pattern in mind that uses a layer cake but I just haven't bought a layer cake to use it, so I would love to win this! Thanks

  65. Ooh what a fun prize! I have been dreaming about a summer tablecloth and matching potholders… and this would be perfect!

  66. My gosh. I'm beginning to feel like a stalker. I'm twittering, i'm blogging, I'm a facebooking… I'm tired!!

  68. My cousin is having a baby soon so that would be perfect for the little one :)
    Thank you for this chance to win!

  69. I've never used precut fabrics, so this would be fun to play with — I would probably make a quilt for a friend for Christmas or something like that.

  70. I would make a comfort quilt for a young lady I know who is facing a battle with an agressive form of cancer. ~karen

  71. Looks like it would make a perfect quilt top for a picnic quilt. Frolic in the meadow with a nice glass of lemonade and such.

  73. That's an awesome layer cake, so pretty! I always have a baby quilt to make for someone and this would be perfect. Crossing my fingers!

  74. I'd use that for a quilt for my niece when she's a little bigger. Thanks for your tutorials with great pictures!

  75. I would love to win that layer cake. Most likely it would be made into a quilt. I might decided to chop it up and make a patchwork twirl skirt for my daughter out of it. It would be the perfect amount of squares. Thanks for the giveaway!

  76. I think I might make myself a blanket out of this one. I've been doing so much sewing for other people lately… it would be nice to have something for me!

  77. Oh how wonderful! :) I have no idea what I would do with the Frolic layer cake! Now, however I have something interesting to plan in boring meetings I will have today! ;) So thank you! :)

  78. I have been drooling over Frolic! I'd love to win this layer cake and use it to make some pillows for our newly finished basement. It looks like a ton have people have entered this drawing though, good for you…bad for my chances! :-)

  79. Lovely give-away!
    I live in Denmark where it is traditional to have actual layer cake for birthdays, often with fresh strawberries :)

  87. Love the giveaway! I'd probably make a picnic blanket or a summery quilt for the nights with a slight chill in the air. Thanks for the opportunity!

  88. not sure what I would do with it if I won, I usually have to look at something in person before I can figure out what it will become. It looks like a beautiful bundle of fabric though!

  90. I would make a quilt or placemats for my kitchen or maybe a skirt. Thanks for the chance to win. Great giveaway

  92. I love to use the great patterns at Moda Bakeshop. There are a couple promising ones that use layer cakes on there… thanks!

  93. I've never actually used a layer cake, but I want to try more quilt making so I'd probably use it towards that end. Lovely giveaway!


  94. I fanned you on facebook. This whole "like" thing drives me nuts.

    Oh, you will see a crazy lady with a goat in pearls.

    kaiminani at gmail dot com

  95. and if I won the Frolic layer cake, I'd do the happy dance in the yard and Frolic like a puppy with my kids :) Thank you for this chance :)

  96. I follow your blog every day that you update it! I would LOVE to put this layer cake to use to create a quilt that has been in my head for a while that I'd love to make a tutorial for Moda if they would have me!

  97. I would definitely make a quilt. My best friend is pregnant and so are a ton of other ladies I know! This would be perfecto!
    katie.muirhead (at) gmail (dot) com

  98. LOVE this layer cake. I was just looking at the Frolic line on Etsy thinking I'd like to try my hand at making a little quilt for my toddler's "big girl" room! Thanks for participating!

  99. Love Frolic!!! My niece is turning 3 very shortly and I'm thinking it'd make a great big girl quilt for her :)

  100. I'm not sure what I would make with the frolic fabric. I have a few projects I need to complete before I can allow myself to add another. I'd love to have this waiting in the wings for something special once the others are completed.

  101. Love the Frolic Layer Cake – I'd use it for a new pattern I just got from Carolina Patchworks that calls for a layer cake!

  102. I would make a simple quilt top by cutting all the squares in half and then sew together in strips narrow edges together. Offset by half a square and join the strips. {erfection with that collection.

  103. Love the layer cake. At the moment I would have to find a book or a pattern to find what to do with the layer cake. The fabric is so bright and fun.
    I am a subscriber and I left a comment with facebook. I am not sure it is in the right place but I left a comment.
    Have a super great day and thank you for such a great giveaway.

  104. That is one great layer cake! I love those bright and spring-like colours. I have been thinking about covering a round tin stool that has been around this appartment, without me liking it particularly, and I think these fabrics would be a great makeover for it.

    Thanks for the chance!


  105. Had a fellow quilter stop by the other day and gave her a tour of the house "You don't have a quilt on your bed" No, no I don't! I giveaway all my quilts so maybe it's time to make one for myself!

  106. I love the front of this bundle!

    I can see either using it for some quilted home decor or even some piecework baby bibs, or the start of a great quilt top!

    I have subscribed and liked as requested! Thanks for the fb link!

  107. I would love to win this great layer cake. I would make a quilt with it – maybe a disappearing nine patch. Thanks for the giveaway!

  109. what to do with frolic. I love pin wheels and it would make some awesome pinwheel block for a quilt top. it is also in good colors to make a little boys quilt.

  110. Hi Amy I have never had a layer cake so I am not to sure what I would do with it but it would be fun. I am a follower of your blog.

  111. This would make a super cute quilt for my daughter's room. She's been asking for one and this would be perfect. Thanks.

    ninjaeema at aol dot com

  112. Oh and I follow your blog (do I get extra points for joining your quilt festival? b/c I've already blogged that post!… but I can't figure out how to get on your list)

  113. Oh I love that fabric! I am just getting into sewing/quilting…and that fabric would be great for my first real quilt on my own!

  114. Thanks for the giveaway. I'd definitely make a quilt with the layer cake. I'm looking forward to quilt festival!

  115. This looks like it might just be the perfect fabric for a doll quilt for a little one I know who will soon be 1. Or something else for her. I just have boys, so it's fun to imagine myself making things for little girls. Thanks so much for the chance to win!


  116. I think some kind to fun wall hanging would look great in these fabrics. Thanks for the great give away!

  117. I "love" your blog.

    I "like" your facebook page.

    I "need" this fabric!!!

    I don't have any good fabric stores in my tiny little town. I have to shop online.

    My daughter moved into her big girl bed…and that would be a perfect quilt for it!



  118. Hey Amy!
    I'm a follower :)

    I need to stop blog hopping and get to work on my quilt I plan on entering in the BQF! I'm excited for more blog hopping then :)

  119. There is this quilt on the Moda Bake Shop that I would use the Frolic Layer Cake for. On the MBS it was made with Cherish, I believe.

  120. Enjoy your blog, and follow it on my google reader.

    I'm envisioning a nice quilt for my mom made with that layer cake . . .


  121. I love the frolic line. I'm not sure what kind of quilt I would make, but it would definitely get used…and soon!
    kell22 @

  122. Thanks so much for hosting this great giveaway! I am a beginning quilter and am very excited to find your tutorials! I also just became a follower of yours on Twitter :)

    With the layer cake, I think I would be able to make a couple of picnic blankets, perfect for summer :)

  123. A layer cake giveaway is so generous! I would visit Moda's Bakeshop to find a pattern for a layer cake quilt. They have the best ideas over there!

  124. Your blog is in my favorites. I would love a Frolic layer cake, I just purchased some Frolic charm packs and this would complete my collection. Thanks so much !!

  125. You know, I have never used a layer cake before! I have always wanted to try, but am afraid to spend the money and make a mistake. If I were to win, i think I would make a quilt for myself- something I have also never done before.

  128. I'd probably make a baby quilt – something bright would be more fun than the traditional pastels.

    ikkinlala AT yahoo DOT ca

  129. I LOVE the layer cake! I'm not a 100% sure what i would make with it I'd have to see all the fabrics, but ill most likely make a beautiful quilt :)

  130. I adore Frolic! If I win it, i would make a life's journey quilt from cottonway. the pattern has been sitting around my sewing room begging me to buy a layer cake!

  131. Love these fabrics and have resisted buying any. I would piece the squares together into a picnic quilt for summer.

  132. if the top print is any indication, that looks like a lot of fun fabric in that layer cake. I'd probably make a quilt with it for my daughter's new room

  133. Great giveaway… and I'm looking forward to your quilt festival, too. Might inspire me to start up my own blog. The layer cake would turn into a quilt, probably using a pattern from the Moda bake shop.

  134. I love that fabric and it would definitely become a quilt for my niece! And maybe one pillow for me!
    Greetings from Chile!

  135. oooh! lovely fabric! If I had a frolic layer cake I think I would make a disappearing 9 patch quilt for a lucky little girl…I think it's fun, cheery and that pattern is one of my favorites! thanks for sharing!

  136. What a fun giveaway! I would probably make another quilt with the Simple Times pattern! :D I'm itchin to start another project!!

  137. I think I would let my youngest dd who is 6 and learning to sew to make something out of that lovely fabric.

  138. I would probably use it to make a baby quilt top.. I've got a lovely friend that is pregnant with her first daughter and I would LOVE to make her a quilt; even though her mom's making her one for the baby too!

    You can NEVER have too many soft quilts or blankets for you little one!

  139. Sorry to be cliche, but I'd make a quilt; probably using a disappearing nine-patch and some coordinating solids.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  140. Beautiful fabric !
    Great for a big pillow…
    I am new to your blog &
    thanks for the invitation to
    check it out . Also many
    thanks for participating in
    the SewMamaSew Giveaway !

  141. I have a good friend who is preggo w/her 3rd…I'm convinced it's a girl, and since I've already made the other 2 girls each a quilt, this little babe should probably have one too!

  142. Hmmm, what would I make? I think I'd redecorate my little girl's room. A quilt top? a lampshade cover? Pillows? Whatever I end up making it'll look pretty cute!

  143. I don't know what I'd make yet – I have so many project ideas to choose from.. Therefore, something interesting: Windows tend to get thicker at the bottom over time because glass is not technically a solid and is classified as a supercool liquid, which in itself is super cool! :-D

    Yep, I'm a nerd.

  144. I just found your blog today. Good thing I was sick and had to stay home from work today. lol
    I added your blog to my google reader.
    I don't follow on facebook because I am trying to spend more time doing things than reading things on my computer. I am going to enjoy reading your blog

  145. Fun giveaway! I think this would be a great layer cake to try out some pinwheel blocks I've been wanting to make … perfect for a happy quilt! Thanks for sharing – I can't wait to win! :)

  146. Oh, how fun! I've always wanted to try a complete quilt (I've only made ones for my girls dolls). I'd probably try my hand at making a quilt.

  147. Amy! Look at you all up at the top of the list. (I started at the bottom this time.) I would make… I don't know. I would open it up and admire every piece. I would sort them into each print, with all the different colors of each print together. I would get precut linties all over the place. I would maybe make a couple of gathered zipper pouches out of it eventually. (Later on I can find the link for you if you want.)
    So, are you offering it to the writer of the longest comment? lol

  148. I love this fabric and would love to make a nice quilt out of it…simple big squares…or use your simple pattern : )

  149. I'm a new follower as of yesterday, thanks to Elizabeth as Such a Sew and Sew. She posted about the Quilt Festival, and I hope to participate.

  150. Thanks for the chance to win. I would use the fabric in a quilt for my daughter–love the bright colors in the top piece!

  151. Such pretty fabrics. I'd probably make something for my kitchen…perhaps, a potholder and towels. That way, I can see and admire these fabrics daily. =)

  152. I've had a quilt pattern picked out for weeks now and have been looking for the perfect layer cake to make it. I'm loving that top fabric so I know the rest will be wonderful too! Thanks for the chance to win!

  153. I would probably make a purse or tote. I love purses and tote bags and this fabric looks fun!


  154. What a fab name for fabric – 'frolic' makes you think of children running around barefooted in the summer! I would make a summery quilt for frolicking on. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  155. I am currently working on a quilt made with a frolic LC…LOVE FROLIC! Would love to make another one…

  156. I would use it for my next quilt that I plan to give to my friend's baby girl (although the baby is already 6 months old!! LOL)

  157. I already follow your blog :)
    I am thinking Frolic would be a fabulous quilt for my oldest daughter!

  158. I love material and it could become a problem. but am leaving it all behing in Guatemala where we have been missionaries for 3 years. so I will have no stash. carolyn

  159. I am in such need of sewing up a quilt for my mother in law. It's long overdue and this fabric would be perfect!!

  160. Something interesting: Everyone in my family of five has a diffrent blood type. Let's just hope no one needs a transfusion any time soon!

  161. I've seen a few darling quilts in blogland, I would love to try to make one. This fabric would be gorgeous!

  162. I'm entering all the giveaways hoping to win a surprise for my friend Kali. She lives in Tennessee and lost most of her crafting supplies in the recent flood. I'm sending her some of mine, but if she could get other cool stuff from strangers = awesome LOL. So that's what I'd do with it. Give you HER address hehehe

  163. Something interesting…hmm…I've never owned a layer cake. I've also never won a giveaway.

  164. oh wow that is awesome. I have made quilts for all of my family, but not me so I think I would be selfish and do that!!!

  165. Thanks for the great giveaway! I'm excited to discover your blog. I think this fabric would be perfect for an oversized snowball quilt!

  166. Lovely fabric! I'd try to make a small quilt with it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  167. Not even sure what a layer cake is– I'm that much of a novice sewer. But I'm sure I can find something fun to make with it! :)


  168. Wow a whole layer cake? I think I'd like to make a cute outdoor canopy for my niece. I had one as a kid that was just a blanket on some sticks and even that was magical enough for me.

  169. I'm already a follower of your really nice blog:-)

    What I would do with your nice giveaway? Hm. I'm sure, that it will be a fantastic quilt for warm summer nights.

  170. I would definitely make a quilt with this layer cake. Thanks for the chance to enter!

  171. I would love to make some Frolic whirly giggles! Thanks for the generous giveaway.

    Now I better get to work so I can post on Friday!

  172. I searching for fabric for my next quilt and these would be great! It's the third quilt to make and the first one that I am keeping for myself!

  173. it is the perfect colour scheme for a friend who just had her baby. I want a quilt mum can use when feeding in the cold nights and that baby can use when she is older. there should be enough to make some small softies as well

  174. Great giveaway! I'll find out soon if a new niece or nephew will be joining us this fall – these fabrics would make a great blanket for a little girl!

  175. I have a great new book Anka's treasures and it has some great patterns in it for Layer Cakes, I want to make a quilt for our spare bed and this fabric is so nice and bright.

  176. Love this fabric line and it would be perfect to use for JayBird's Cirlce quilt since you use a layer cake for it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  177. I'd have to go with the others and say a quilt. But I've also been using bright, fun fabrics like this to add small swatches of decoration so plain jeans, back packs, etc.

  178. hi, i follow your blog, and i like you on facebook, (sounds wierd, haha) thanks for this chance, that layer cake sure is pretty, as for what to make with it?? it looks like it would make a real pretty skirt!!


  179. Wow! So much amazing generosity today! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    My resolution this year was to learn to quilt, so I've been popping all over the blogosphere looking for tutorials and instructions for great beginner quilts. I've found a treasure trove on your blog! Wow!


  180. Amy, been a follower ever since I started blogging…right around last year's Blogger's Quilt Festival…time just flies on by!

  181. Thanks for the giveaway, I love the Moda precut range. I think I'd make something summery out of such lovely fabric… maybe a picnic blanket.

  182. I have no idea what I would do with a layer cake — I've never had one before! But think of the fun I would have figuring out the best way to use it! Great giveaway, Amy!

  183. Having not used precuts very much, I am not sure what I would do with it, but there are so many good ideas out there I would be sure to come up with something. Thanks for the chance.

  184. Hmm. A quilt maybe. Although I just finished one, so I might be interested in something else for a change!

  185. What cute fabric! Ok something interesting… my cat sneezes all of the time. I think she has allergies. It's weird, right… a cat with allergies? (btw she's really cute when she sneezes… everyone should have a cat with allergies. She doesn't seem to be congested and suffering, just sneezy sometimes.)

  186. beautiful fabric! i've been really into patchwork lately: pillows, fabric buckets, table runners, clothing. i'll find something fabulous to make with it!

  187. I am a subscriber through bloglines! I am excited to see that you have a binding tutorial. I just finished my second quilt and the first time I did the binding I was being supervised in a class. This time I'm on my own, eeek. Your tutorial will help, thank you :)

  188. I just made a new living room center table, it has glass on the top so I would make a center piece quilt to put under.

  189. This is a great blog – love the tutorial on binding! and a great prize – very generous of you Amy. I am now a follower too…:)

  190. Oh this could be just the inspiration I need to finish that queen sized scrappy bed quilt I have been working on for almost a year!

  191. oh, that is awesome! i would use it for projects for my toddler, maybe a patchwork skirt or doll clothes! thanks for the chance to win!

  192. My daughter and I are working on making quilts and pillowcases for the Akron Children's Hospital so I would use that to make a quilt for someone!
    epblack at zoominternet dot net

  193. I'd love to make a half-square triangle quilt in the frolic, or maybe a bird mobile. Thanks for the giveaway! amo (at) zoic (dot) org

  194. Can I just win and stare at the fabric because it is so cute? I'd probably make a quilt of some sort. Love the bright colors!

  195. I would use it for my charity quilts. Please enter me in your lovely drawing. ladycolmn(at)aol(dot)com from the Florida Gulf Coast area

  196. Amy I love your blog- but let me tell you that I have had my eyes on the Frolic line before it even came out. I would love to make a cathedral window quilt for my baby girl :) Thank you for the great giveaway!! :)

  197. I'd love to win this layer cake to make a small table topper for my patio table! It would look so fresh. Thanks so much for participating in the Giveaway!

  200. great giveaway, love these fabrics! That'd be my 1st layer cake!

    Love the fabric line, too!
    Sandy A

  202. Frolic is so gorgeous!!!! And layer cakes are wonderful. I would make a gorgeous apron. With the scraps I would make a bunch of hexagons and use even more scraps in a scrappy quilt. Love love love!


  203. I'm not really sure what a cake layer is, but I've been trying to make a quilt which calls for one. The pattern doesn't give measurements, or yardage so it's a mystery to me. You could help me demystify, and the fabric would work really well for the pattern I'm trying to make. thanks for doing a give away.

  204. I love that the Frolic fabric line and I have plenty of friends having babies so I'd have to make a couple of cot quilts for friends and this is cute without being babyish.

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  205. Nice giveaway! I am hoping to learn to make some summer dresses for my 19-month old daughter this summer. This is such a beautiful fabric for a summer dress!

  206. What would I make with it? What WOULDN'T I make with it? I have a new quilting machine, so I could make a summertime quilt. Or maybe something more exciting…a wall hanging? Fancy underpants?

  207. I love that fabric. I would make the quilt by Quilt Dad on the Moda Bake Shop. I can't remember what it's called, but it has crosses in it!

  208. I would make this fabulous frolicky fabric into a bag, or maybe a lap quilt for a wedding gift. A young woman friend is getting married this summer.

  209. I love that layer cake! I've just been looking at a quilt on the front of one of this month's quilt magazines – lots of circles cut out of a layer cake! This would be perfect for that quilt…. so I hope I win!!! Thanks for joining the giveaway!

  210. I wonder if you are going to break 1000 comments!! I think I would make umm…I don't know!! There are so many things that I want to make, but trust me it would have a good home here!!

  211. How gorgeous! I'm all about baby blankets right now, cuz there are at least 5 due to family/friends (and me!) in Sept/Oct/Nov.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  220. I'm new to quilting so I think I will really learn a lot from your blog. I've never used layer cakes.

  222. The Frolic fabric collection is so pretty! I would use it for a quilt. I need new project ideas!

    webmailaddress2 @ yahoo dot com

  223. I always make something for somebody else..I might just be selfish and make something for me! After I recover from my upcoming c-section and adjust to another baby

  224. I just signed up to follow your blog. If I were lucky enough to win this Frolic layer cake I would use it to make a quilt from my new book Schnibbles Times Two.

  226. I would make quilt for a friend of mine. She loves those colors and is moving back to town so a house warming gift will be needed!
    kbsteuber at yahoo dot com

  227. What a stunning collection Frolic is! I hadn't actually seen that one before. I've been wanting to do some more quilting, but the budget prevents… I'd love to do a quilt for the guestroom, where my sister's going to be boarding in a few weeks!

  228. Thank you for the chance at this pretty fabric. I think I'd make something for my sewing room since it's such a happy fabric.

    Oh – I follow you in my Google Reader – don't want to miss a post!

  236. I've never worked with a layer cake before, but judging from the amount of comments, they must be fun… I'm really not sure what I'd make! I'd have to get my hands on it first!

  237. Looking through all these blogs makes me want to make a quilt and quick. I saw a 9-patch variation that would be so easy to do with a layer cake

  238. Fun fabrics! I don't quilt, but I do love making zipper pouches, so that is what I'd probably do with the fabric–though some might become little pillows!

  239. I am not particularly good at quilting or patchworking, so I would probably use this layer cake for making smaller projects such as small bags or pouches or even for making softies/plushies.

  244. Hi, I am new to the whole sewing community online, as I just got my first sewing machine for Christmas this past year, but I am slowly learning! The layer cake looks absolutely beautiful and would be a definite candidate for my first ever quilt – a little stroller blanket inspired by

  257. I would hunt around on the Moda Bake Shop for days or weeks, agonizing over what to make! That's half the fun!

    And just followed up in Google Reader!

  271. Amy, I read your blog weekly. Thank you for this giveaway. I would make a frolic-ing good quilt from the layer cake. Perhaps would treat as oversized charms and use one on the blog of wishes, true and kind. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  272. That fabric is so pretty! Hmmm, what would I do with it? I don't even know – I'm working on some quilted pillowcases right now, that would be fun. Or maybe I'd make it into a fun quilt?

  273. What a fabulous giveaway – thank you for the opportunity! Frolic would make a lovely summer quilt to snuggle under when the a/c is running full blast :) Sorry, I'm not very original, lol!

  276. What great fabric:) I have never used a layer cake so have no idea what I would do with it but think I could find something!!! Thanks for such a great giveaway.

  278. Oooh, I've never heard of a layer cake. Interesting! I'd definitely make a quilt with the fabric!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  279. I love layer cakes. I am using a Blush one right now. I would like to have one to do an applique quilt. I like how the fabrics are all in the same family. It makes part of the picking fabric step alittle easier for me.

  280. I am going to make my first quilt. And prepicked precut fabrics would make that so much easier.

  281. Thanks for the opportunity! You have awesome tutorials! I'm going to have to look at the mitered corner one, because my corners always end up sort of rounded.
    thanks for the chance to win the fabric, too! Really neat! I have no idea what I'd do with it – I really need to get my hands on something before inspiration hits, but I'd love to figure something out for it!
    steeplechaser29 (at) yahoo {dot] com

  288. right now it's over one thousand comments. ONE THOUSAND!!! this is amazing!!! of all the blogs i've visited yesterday and today not one had so many participants! wow!!!
    before i leave my participation too i wanted to thank you for the handstich biding tutorial in your other post. i really have a hard time with biding, specially corners…

    thank you for your generosity. i'm sure this fabric would make a lovely quilt for my wonderful neighbour, who is having a hard time in her life right now and she needs something to put a smile back on her face.

  289. I'm not sure what I would make with the layer cake. I'm sure it would be a quilt, but I'm not sure of the pattern. Hope I win it, even though I'm number 1010 in the comments!

  290. wow so many comments
    I would use some other fabrics and make a quilt then use the littlest scraps to make some elegant blocks for another quilt

  295. Pretty fabrics! With 600 people commenting before me, it's unlikely that I'll win… but still, thanks for giving me the chance. :)

  296. Amy, I love the fabric! What pretty colors! It would look nice in a nice modern quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

  297. I am also a fan on facebook. I guess it would be that I like your page but back when I signed up it was a fan button, lol.
    Thanks again,
    Kelley O

  298. Love the frolic! I have so many projects to do…but I know this would go to good use. Maybe I would finally do the zigzag from your tute for ORB quilt along.

  299. I am already a follower. Just love that fabric It is so rich and luscious. I think I would make a Happy Quilt so that when someone is sick or sad this quilt could not help but add sunshine to their day :-)
