    Very pretty line. Haven’t done to many children quilts. It would be nice to have one ready for whatever might come up.

    What a great idea! I love “Bubble and Swirl” and I plan to make a quilt with that fabric for my son who’s going overseas for his 6th year medicine studies end of this year. It looks like I’ll be making a quilt for myself if I get lucky and win “Locally Grown” bundle, wouldn’t that be wonderful. Thanks for all your wonderful videos on all kinds of sewing and I think your children are so sweet! You are a great mum Vanessa!

    I really like the patterns you have chosen. My kitchen is all done in chickens and roosters this project would complete my dining room wall I have been waiting for the right thing to come along. What better than a handmade wall hanging. I love all your tutorials as I am a beginner quilter.

    I’m not usually into neutral colored fabrics, but the Chickadee collection is so adorable! I love the ones with the bird silhouettes. If I won, this would actually be my first quilt 🙂 My husband and I are trying to find an affordable homestead ourselves (which seems sadly impossible in the SF Bay Area!), but in the mean time the locally grown fabric would match our urban permaculture lifestyle just fine! All the best.
