My 100th post Give away - day 3

Today we have two pieces of fabric up for grabs.

The first is approximately one metre of fabric called Calico Critters and Hearts by Emily T for Fabrics by Spectrix (Sorry, can't find an appropriate link!) This was bought to fill an envelope coming from OS and wasn't quite what I wanted when it got here.

The second is a vintage piece of fabric that came from a pile of fabrics given to me by my grandmother in law before she passed late last year. She is the woman responsible for many gorgeous items around our house.
The fabric is about 30x100cm and features 3 panels of about 25cm2 of Australian wild flowers. Each end has a strip of three baskets full of wild flowers. I simply want this to go some where where it will be used and displayed, rather than stuck in my cupboard.

Want to win these items? Post a comment and tell me what you would use the flower fabric for.
Remember if you post about my give away on your blog you get an extra entry, post a link back to here and you get a third!

Hi from Perth in Western Australia. I would love this give away. I adore Australian wildflowers; we have so many lovely ones her in the West. If I win I will make a wall hanging featuring the panels. I have some odd bits of fabric with wild flowers on that I could use; but I would leave the panels whole. Thanks for the giveaway. My email address is s.downes@murdoch.edu.au

I love your Australian wildflower panels. I would also make them into a wall hanging where they would be featured.

When I go away on vacation I try to find fabrics from those places so that I can then make a quilt or wall hanging as memory of my visit. Unfortunately Australia is quite a distance from where I live and thus costly and I don't have one of those nice high paying jobs LOL.

Congratulations on your 100th post. I don't even know when mine was. I just blithely passed it by without any kind of road markers.
I'm from Utah, USA
I love this giveaway, but don't know where you are located. If not in the US, then give those chances in your country the first chances.

Love the fabrics. I would use the floral fabric squares for a table runner, they would be perfect for my dining room.

Hi,
I like your blog giveaway what a great idea. I would make the Australian wildflower panels into something for a friend who I met in OZ, whilst she was posted here for 2 years with her DH's work.
As to what I would make with them, I am undecided, maybe some cushion covers (with 2) and then a bag with the 3rd.

The flower fabric would look lovely as an apron. I know just the person who could utilise this :)

I would love to turn the flower fabric into a wall hanging or lap quilt for a lady in the US who I will be visiting when I go over for my graduation in May. She has been very supportive of me throughout me masters degree and went out of her way to tour me through Ann Arbor before taking me to a lovely restaurant when I was over there for work last March. I have been thinking I would like to take something handmade over for her when I go. If there is any left over, I would feature it in a couple of bags for others that we meet up with over there - the university contact and DH's aunty.
