I believed in all things magical and still do. ;o) My daughter is a self described "fairy expert" and we just gave her a copy of the complete flower fairies." Hoping that the fairy spirits will grace us with this fabric!

i still do believe in fairies ;-)

Stephanie said...

Maine is the home of fairy houses, little creations made with whatever sticks, stones, and leaves are at hand. My husband and I recently built one for our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter and put a small fairy doll in it. It was so much fun to watch her discover the doll.

Judith said...

Of course I believe in fairies and gnomes and the like. Just because we can't see them doesn't mean they are not there. Have faith in them. Would love to win this giveaway.

Nooly said...

of course! still believe! you know how babies sometimes talk and smile at nothing at all? its the fairies. they can see them and we can't... gorgeous fabric!

Melinda said...

My favorite books when I was little were The Borrowers series. I loved the idea of little people (winged or not) running around where we couldn't see them!

Magpie Mimi said...

I did believe. I now have four nieces and know that that fabric bundle would be great news for them!

Jennifer said...

My daughter saw these and all she could do was gasp...she's in love!

BarbaraG said...

While I never believed, my younger brother did. So my older brother and I invented stories to 'Little People' who lived in the walls of our house and their doorway was a knothole in my closet door frame!

DianeY said...

My grandmother had a pixie that lived in her walk-in closet while I was little. She used to talk to it every morning, but when I got there the pixie would hide & I never did get to see her!

Tresann said...

I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!

Mel said...

When I was little I would play for hours pretending I had fairies for friends.

Carrie L said...

I don't remember specifically believing in fairies, but I did spend hours building little houses in the woods with my sisters. Thanks for the chance to win!

Hilary said...

My little girl would fall instantly in love with this fabric, and I'm lucky enough to have a friend who would know what to do with it!

Goosegirl said...

We still believe in fairies! My oldest daughter just came home after working in the Disney College Program, where she told stories on the Storybook Land Canal Boats. She saw Tinkerbell fly every night during the fireworks. Of course we believe in fairies.
I LOVE the flower fairies and would love to win this gorgeous fabric.
Thank you for the chance.

Brid said...

I still believe in them. And so do my daughters. They love flower fairies :)

Scenic Pit Stops said...

I was more of an Anne of Green Gables kind of girl, but the mythical/mystical are always enthralling!

Sequana said...

You mean fairies aren't real? Please don't tell me.

Lisa said...

My daughter is squealing looking at that fabric and my paypal account just sighed!

Brenda said...

The fabric is beautiful..oh what to make!?

Missus Vonkysmeed said...

Not only did I believe in fairies, but in dragons, unicorns and everything else too! My dd is only 6 and she is still a believer. I would love to make her a special fairy quilt with this gorgeous fabric!

Melinda said...

I loved fairies - especially Tinkerbell!

Danielle said...

The flower fairies were a staple in my home growing up. My Mother had them displayed everywhere. They bring back fond memories!

Marcia W. said...

Hmm - my comments keep getting lost. We believed in make believe fairies and love Peter Pan. If my grandnieces see this fabric, they will want quilts and clothes made of it. Thanks for the magical inspiration.

angie said...

oh, my goodness! my sister and i loved the flower fairies when we were kids...and still do. :)

Patty D from NC said...

I don't recall ever believing in fairies. My daughter who is now 13 was a big believer when she was small.

It's A Wonderful said...

Fairies...before purple was a "hot" color, before tattoos and
David Cassidy was a heartthrob!

Karen said...

My 2 year old daughter dresses like a fairy princess 2 or 3 times a week...it is usually lots of fun! :) I am just learning to quilt and having a ton of fun with it. BEAUTIFUL FABRICS!!

crazyqsis said...

I did believe sometimes still do when I cant find my scissors or glasses. I am sure they are hiding them on me.

Carolyn said...

I totally believe in all things magical because I have a precious granddaughter that is the love of my life, and we play pretend and magical all the time. Princesses, queens, ballerinas..all those magical things that a four year old loves. I would dearly LOVE to make my precious Kayla a quilt out of these fabrics. Thank you for the chance at an awesome giveaway. I'm going to cross everything and think of magic happening. :)

Bethany said...

Oh so perfect for my cute little niece who is turning one this month.

Janice said...

Doesn't everyone believe in fairies?!! I have a GD that definitely believes.

Rachelle said...

I still believe in fairies; just because you haven't seen something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I've got some of the older Flower Fairies fabric in my stash and I love it!

Sadie said...

I had all the flower fairy books when I was a little girl.

PS. Don't tell anyone: I still am a little girl:)

thatquilter said...

I can't remember far enough back to say whether I believed in fairies, but my granddaughters definitely do! Such sweet feminine fabrics.

Em said...

I don't remember believing in fairies of the general variety, just the specific (i.e. Tooth). Though, I currently live with one. (at least, that's what my 3 year old says)

Solstitches said...

Oh yes, I believe in fairies :
I can imagine any little girl having the sweetest of dreams sleeping under a quilt made of those gorgeous fabrics.
Margaret

Cerise said...

I love Cicely Mary Barker. When I was growing up my sister and I believed that's what fairies really looked like. So beautiful.

Klemm Family said...

I was more of a tomboy, so no fairies for me. My favorite is Julia Roberts in Peter Pan though :)

TLL said...

Beautiful fabric! I'm looking forward to the quilt pattern.

Rebecca said...

Of course! Fairies, dragons, and unicorns were all real in my book.

Lisa Marie said...

I don't remember believing in fairies when I was young. I'll bet my young niece believes though. She is a total girly girl and this fabric would be perfect to make something for her.

cheryl said...

Are you kidding, I still believe in faries. Magic is all around us.

Domestic Artisan said...

Of course! The Magic Faraway Tree helped me along!

Angela Hassell said...

Love the fairy fabric, my daughter has a dress made out of her fabric, all glittery, and its amazing. x

Lucie Monroe said...

My grandma has a cabin in the mountains - only woods and meadows around. When my sister and our cousin were little, we would dress up in old lace window treatments and run around the meadows during sunset, pretending we were fairies.. We had so much fun!

SewLittleMissLadybug said...

Wow. They are a little girls dream. My Daughter and my neice would love if i made them something from them.

Noelia said...

Nice fabric for a fairytale quilt.
Thank you

Diana said...

Beautiful fabric. I believe the fairies would approve!

Joanna said...

This fabric reminds me of my childhood bedroom (though the fabrics were more on the lavender side). I had a floral bedspread with matching curtains, and the best part: my mom covered my lampshades with the same fabric, which was beautiful when the light shone through it!

Catskill Quilter said...

Yes! Gorgeous fabrics!

Funny Girl said...

Love this fairy fabric! My little girls are sure to love it, too!

Thanks for the gorgeous giveaway.

hillyvanilly said...

Beautiful! I love fairies, and this would make an adorable quilt for my baby girl :)

KatheG said...

Of course - don't want anything to happen to Tinkerbell. Love the fabric. Thanks.

Wendy A said...

Fairies are part of every little girl's life! I used to make fairy rings of little flowers in the garden, wishing that a fairy would leave something special for me. The Flower Fairies have been part of my mother's life, my life and I passed them down to my daughter, in the form of picture books. This fabric would complement any little girl's bedroom.

Nicole said...

Just this morning I told my 4 year old fairies are real......have to keep the magic alive.

Jovanna said...

I love the fairy frost fabric! :-) I have a soft place for metallics that seem to be disappearing from stores.

Henria O. said...

This fabric is absolutely wonderful! How much more wonderful it would be to actually win some of it! Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

Hillary said...

I'm not sure I ever believed but I'm pretty sure that my daughter does. :) How pretty!

sewkalico said...

Sugar and spice and all things nice ESPECIALLY Flower Fairies. I rmember them from my childhood and have even bought some of this range. So wonderful!

Coley said...

I still believe in fairies...And my 18 month old is going to be a pumpkin fairynfor Halloween... :)

Makuahine said...

of course I did!
and I have a girly girl at home who would love these! my mind is already spinning with ideas!

tewood@ said...

For more than a year now I've been collecting the panels and coordinating fabrics so I can make quilts out of each panel: Strawberry Fairy; Coneflower Fairy; Periwinkle fairies; Apple blossom fairies; rose fairy; magical flower fairies; of which I have also made my tiny grand-daughter summer outfits. They are sooo cute. I can't wait to collect for the Petal Fairies and Night Fairies. The night fairies will match how I did my bedroom in Bellagio Faux purples and blues and I hung pics of night fairies by Brian Froud. I an so excitied about the new collectionsl.

Margaret S said...

Wonderful fairies! My little grand-daughters love nothing more than dressing as fairies. The dainty five year old could be one, while the two year old could shot putt for Australia, but loves her fairy wings!

India Pharmacy said...

saim said...

It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to come here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us

Nicole said...

I believed so much in fairies, and elves, sprites, brownies, and all the folk.

I hope I win, or that my daughter never sees this fabric as there will be no peace until we get some!

Valerie Brooks said...

I am just chomping at the bit to make this quilt in a queen size for my very sweet adult child!

Katharine Devinney said...

I have always loved fairies and used wall stickers of flower fairies when I redid my daughter's room for her 6th Birthday. I have loved Cicely Mary Baker's flower fairies since I was a child. My aunt, from Sweden, bought me a small hand mirror with the purple fairy on it. I got that back in 1978. I'd love to do another project with this fabric.

charmin said...

When I was little my Irish grandmother lived with us. Whenever something was missing she would say it was the fairies who took it! I loved believing and still think of those mischievous little fairies!



mariaeb on Ravelry said...

LOVED FAIRIES...and ALL things make believe. Now I get to enjoy them all over again with my granddaughters!

Kay M said...
