I’ve drooled over this book for quite some time. Pick me! Pick me!

I haven’t tried this technique yet….but really want to!

Penny Barnes wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 1:17 pm

I have tried using 100% cotton, cotton blends, and satin. The 100% cotton was the easier for me to manipulate, but then I may have been doing the others wrong. It is so neat to see the fabric form something entirely different right before your eyes! I would love to have this book!

I have tried prairie points and cathedral windows for my quilts. You mean there’s more that can be done? Then, I must have this book! LOL!

Sue Moretto wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 1:22 pm

I am just learning, making a queen bedspread BOM and some rug mugs. I would love to learn this as well.

Kathy Usher wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 1:33 pm

I tried one of these flowers a few years ago. It did not come out as nice as these. Must try again :-)

Linda Owens wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 1:35 pm

I made bows to match outfits by gathering fabric, and sewing a button in the middle. Also, I have made prairie points and cathederal windows. I’d really enjoy this book, and use it.

I have been wanting to get this book for a LONG LONG time. Finally have time to try new techniques.

I have never tried fabric origami, but would love to. And of course, with your book, I would have instruction available! Thank you for the opportunity to sin.

kathy raabe wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 2:17 pm

That would be WIN, not sin – although, if you saw my stash you may very well think it’s SINFUL!!

I put the flowers on the front of this book on one block of an anniversary friendship quilt I made (assembled) for our son and his wife. I used 100% cotton fabric. I loved the results. I’d borrowed the book from our library, and would love to add it to my own library.

Barbara Mattson wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 2:27 pm

What a lovely way to embellish a quilt! I’d love to learn more.

Lynda Toner wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 2:29 pm

I have made some flowers from t-shirt fabric that I really liked but this book looks like it could keep me busy for weeks. I have to get this book …if I don’t win it here!

Connie Haack wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 2:37 pm

I have made prairie points & some simple flowers, but nothing too complicated. Would love to learn.

I have made a large twisted square put on a smaller square. Then I sewed them together with a sashing turning the blocks into a baby quilt.

Din Milem wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 4:02 pm

The closest I have come is prairie points … nothing beyond that…yet

Regina wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 4:38 pm

I have never tried fabric folding before though I have seen a few quilts with this done. Sure is beautiful and I would love to learn how!

Donna P. wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 4:42 pm

I have tried a couple of different techniques to make coasters, hot pads and Christmas decorations. Some turned out great and some are in the “creative opportunity” pile, lol.

Karen B wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 4:56 pm

I have never tried fabric folding but I love to scrapbook, and have made folded paper boxes that I LOVE..and I have made the fabric bowls…but I would love to try the technique in this book. It looks down right AWESOME!! The cover (background being purple is great right off the bat…PURPLE is my favorite color)…and those cute little flowers I could totally see on a garden quilt. Thanks for the chance to enter. :)

Folding the flowers! Lots of fun. Made my oldest a vase of flowers for her college graduation present.

Have never tried folding fabric to make a quilt and would love to give it a go! The book looks fantastic.

Sherry wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 9:55 pm

I have used 100% cotton, satin and tulle. I have also used a wide grosgrain ribbon to make smaller folds. I am still new, but am in love with origami!!!

Luana Parker wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 11:49 pm

I love to fold fabric into different designs to use with my aprons that I make. It is my hope to learn this craft better as it truly is an inspiration!

Luana Parker wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 11:51 pm

I have the perfect fabric just waiting to be folded into the flowers. I really need to add this book to my library. I am antsy to try this technique. It is just the thing for spring.

Beth Beebe wrote these words on Apr 17 11 at 11:55 pm

I haven’t tried this yet, either, but I am open to new and exciting things.

gramajojo wrote these words on Apr 18 11 at 9:15 am

I do yo yos. Several years ago I did a yo yo flag for grands. They still have them. I have a table topper that is fabric folding; I’d love to do some more.

I’ve tried embellished embroidery & “tried” a rouched rose…(you wouldn’t have been able to identify the flower I was attempting to make!)

Barb Dawson wrote these words on Apr 20 11 at 6:30 pm

Love prairie points in the middle of a quilt or on the edge and cathedral windows are so much fun. Would love to learn more and teach our quilting group, Trinity Quilters.

I would love to have this book. I watch Kaye on the internet. And was very sad when she stopped broadcasting in our area. Hope she will be back soon. She is a fantastic teacher. Also I love origami.

I bought the clips for fabric folding, but I sure would love a new book. The pictures really help.

Jacquelyn G. wrote these words on Apr 26 11 at 2:08 pm

OH MY GOSH! I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE this technique. I’ve never done it yet but have been admiring it since I saw a few projects done for the holidays. I never got the time to do them however. This book is a definite must have. Just looking at things created with fabric folding are so intriguing to me.

I’ve done fabric folding for coasters and potholders, and love it. It’s fast and easy, and uses up “stash” nicely! This book looks like a wonderful addition to fabric folding.

Donna G. wrote these words on Apr 27 11 at 3:23 pm

Years ago I folded fabric in quilt blocks, and lost the tutorial.. Would love to learn this!
