I want to do a dresden plate quilt in 30’s fabrics. I am collecting a few every time I go to a quilt shop. Thanks for the chance to win.

I am new to quilting and I am very proud of my first few projects. I was recently inspired by my 88 year old aunts quilt made of patchwork girls (I later found was called sun bonnet sue) using fabrics from her dresses she wore as a little girl. I enjoyed the excitement in her eyes as she recalled every patch and remembered her childhood dresses. I plan on making one of these quilts and although I do not have a dress collection to use for my patches, I do so love my fabric collection and will enjoy selecting just the right ones for my special quilt. If I only have some nice thread to sew them on with……..

Those colours!! I could eat them. I’d love to make a granny square quilt


  1. I love the Dresden Plate block and have been wanting to use my large stash of 30's fabric for that those spools of thread would be amazing to use for that.

  2. My girls have Ruth and Molly, the 1930s and 1940s American Girl Dolls – I'm always making clothes and doll blankets and little things for them out of repro fabrics – I'd love to have this thread to use!

  3. What a great set of colors. I don't have a 30s project in mind, but would love to use these on the many donation quilts I make for kids. Such bright and cheery colors!

  4. These colors are perfect for some summer project. Although I would use them to quilt a mini quilt with ice creams and other sweets.

  5. I would make a couple of table runners and wall quilts for the summer. There are also a few baby showers coming up that I would use these colors for as well. Thanks for offering this giveaway. The thread is beautiful.

  6. How did you know that I have a box full of 1930's prints 🙂 I've been planning to make a dresden quilt with it … and I could probably make several before the box is empty!

  7. OMG! That is my favorite thread the Aurifil 50 weight. My machine loves it, and so do I. These colours are delicious. I have a small 30's fabric collection to make a baby quilt for this summer.

  8. I have a quilt in mind that I have been collecting fabric for. I don't know the name, but it is from American Patchwork and Quilting, and has a Irish chain type setting with a variety of 30s prints. My collection of fabric is just about there, so I will be starting this quilt soon. I have included several of Darlene's fabrics. Thanks for a chance at this lovely giveaway.

  9. I am having such fun making projects from Lori Holt's Quilty Fun book and just received my order of her Granny Square book! Lori's patterns and designs are perfect for 30's prints! Thanks for the inspiration and fun you generate for us all!

  10. I have such a stash of 30's it would be hard to pick one. But I don love the red and white featured today. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. Recently, I've been working on a sampler quilt with all sorts of bright and airy vintage patterns, and these threads would be perfect 🙂 I love the quality! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  12. i am working on some quilt blocks that were my cousin grandmothers and we are revamping the blocks to fit her taste

  13. I have purchased my fabric and getting ready to start my Granny Square items by Lori Holt. These threads would work perfect!

  15. I have some Dresden plates that have been in my UFO pile for awhile now. These threads would be perfect for them! :o)

  17. I have a "30s Playtime" mini charm pack ready to be made into a table topper for myself

  20. I would love to use these making a small baby quilt using some of Darlene's older 30's collection I have purchased many years ago. Happy Easter to All!!!

  21. I really want to learn applique, and I think a lovely pillow would be a great place to start. Small enough to be manageable, and the 30's colors are perfect for spring and summer! Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. I have been collecting 30's fabrics for a few years, waiting for that perfect project. Well I think I found it, in a Medallion pattern that I saw in a LQS. Can't wait to dig out the pretty fabrics. Thanks!
