Cuckoo Clock fabric and a GIVEAWAY!

Mail Day: Spoonflower Fabric!
I've been waiting for this little package to arrive for quite a while now!
It arrived yesterday and I'm so thrilled!
Cuckoo Clock fabric!

I bought a yard of this gorgeous cuckoo clock fabric, designed by Jennifer and with Mandy's fabulous computer skills, it's finally here.
You can purchse your own yardage at Spoonflower in the pink and aqua (shown below)!
The aqua one looks just as lovely!

So, here's the best part...
I'm going to cut into my purchase and give away a fat quarter of this great fabric!

You have until Wednesday, August 18 at noon to leave a comment... tell me what you would make or which colorway of the cuckoo clocks you like best!
Leave a second comment (for another entry) if you follow our little blog or become a follower.

Giveaway has ended, thank you!
Thanks so much for visiting!
~Jessica

Uh-oh - first commenter syndrome! Here goes anyway: I would make a table runner because it reminds me of my Nana who had a cuckoo clock in her dining room and I loved it when I was little (wonder whatever happened to that clock)

Luv 2 Kreate said...

I really like those little clocks! Not sure what I would make right off hand, but it would make a fantastic addition to my stash!

The top 2 photos are not showing...I had to click on them to see them at Flickr.

Jodi said...

And I'm already a follower, and loving it!

From the first time you showed the fabric, I was obsessed with it- it looks EXACTLY like the cuckoo clock my parents have and I would make something for them out of it, a pillow, a mini quilt, something. I love it.

Woo, I love it! I'd probably just frame it in an embroidery hoop and put it in my girls' room. I'd be too afraid of cutting into it!

Melanie said...

Cindy said...

I love the aqua color way. I'd love to use it as a little square in the center of a block.

Anita said...

Wow, that is such sweet fabric. I would probably make a little bag for my daughter, she starts kindergarten in just over a week!

Anita said...

Domina said...

I think a 3 dimensional pillow featuring a cuckoo clock made of this fabric and some textured "pine cones" would be a great way to use this FQ! But maybe a miniature stuffed "deer trophy" with antlers to hang on the wall would be fun too! :)

~Niki~ said...

I like the blue colorway best~I'd make a small infant quilt :)

Kelly said...

I would make a pillow for my MIL. They have a clock similar to this in their living room, which is decorated very masculine--including a deer head mounted on the wall. I think a nice pink pillow would make her smile. :)

No way! I would be way too selfish to give any of it away. :D I think I would make myself a fancypants little mini quilt for my laundry room.

Bellgirl said...

It's hard to resist the urge to make a quilt out of this one- but I might save a little for a frames purse! I love the antlers especially, always useful on a clock ;)

Bellgirl said...

...and I'm a follower! You've been on my sidebar links list for ages too.

julia said...

If I had to, I'd probably would choose the aqua colorway...
As I'm from the country of cuckoo clocks (isn't this what people associate with Germany - beside beer & dirndls?) I'd probably feature this over-the-top-cute print in a bag... so everybody could see it ;o)

julia said...

I'm a follower of your blog...now even publicly...;o)

Kaye Prince said...

Okay, Jennifer's fabric is seriously awesome! I really love the little stag head at the top of the clock!

Hard to decide what I'd use it for - maybe in some fun patchwork. And I think I like the pink the best, although the aqua is super-awesome too!

Arnden said...

What cute fabric! I am kind of partial to aqua these days (and in love with the aqua/red combo). I have no daughters so pink is not a normal color in my household. However, this sure does look cute in pink! It might also be pretty on a white background.

Rachel Locke said...

I love the aqua colorway. I would make something fussy cut with it.

Rachel Locke said...

I follow the blog!!!

Fiesta said...

Thank you for the chance. This fabric is beautiful.

SteffiD said...

Okay, I love the pink version due to the fact I'm addicted to red/aqua/pink right now. That has BOTH of those awesome colors!

Second of all, I'd do a bit of fussy cutting and make the cutest pillow ever :). For reals.

SteffiD said...

Oh, and yeah. I've been following your blog for a while now. You all are just so stinking creative!

Kim said...

The fabrics are beautiful. I am drawn to aqua lately. I think the fabric would be great made into a wallhanging or a tablerunner.

Dawn W said...

I love that darling little clock - I am currently saving up a stash of aqua/red fabric to make a pinwheel quilt. Just got some Michael Miller Round Robin fabric in aqua and love it. An I spy quilt might be in the works too ...

Dawn W said...

... and I follow your blog!

SewLindaAnn said...

I think the aqua would be my choice. I am really into making little drawstring pouches with zipper pockets right now so that's where it would go.

Amy said...

I love the pink clocks -- cuckoo clocks remind me of my parents house. My sister did a study-abroad in Austria and brought one home, and it drives my parents crazy, but they won't take it down because they are afraid it will hurt her feelings! haha

Christina said...

Christina said...

Its hard to say what I would do with a fat quarter of this wonderfully happy fabric. It would take some definite pondering....perhaps a make up bag? quilted tote? accent on a purse? the possibilities are endless!

Lindsey said...

These are so adorable! I like the pink, and I would make a burp cloth/bib set for my baby due in January. :) Thanks for giving away part of your beautiful fabric!

Katy said...

I think they're both lovely but I'm going for the pink - I love the aqua clocks on the pink background. It looks like a European stenza fabric or something like that, really sweet.
I would use it to make a bib or 2 for my little niece and then the leftovers would get put into a scrap quilt I'm making. Maybe I'd be able to squeeze a dress for my daughter's doll out of a little scrap as well.

What a cute design! I like the aqua the best. My parents had a cuckoo clock when I was growing up. So cute!!!

Brianna said...

The pink is so cute, I would not want to cut it, so Maybe I would stretch it over a canvas for the wall, or put it in a cute white frame.

Brianna said...

Valerie said...

I would love EITHER color! How adorable is that?! I think I would make something like a small art quilt or use it in an apron for me or a cute dishtowel (a la Anthropologie) or...:)

Peggy said...

How adorable! I love the aqua color way.

Johanna said...

I love both colorways! Normaly I tend to pick all things aqua but I think the pink really makes the clock stand out more :)
I would probably put it in the white little frame that has been sitting on my desk for some months while I couldn't decide what to put into it. Which is actually quite funny because I have been thinking about putting a clock on my wall :) Now I could have both!

buebau said...

Wow!!
I didn't know this line of fabric. It's gorgeous!!! I'd make a wonderful wallet with it!
My favorite color... that's hard to choose, but I think I'd go for the blue...

I like the pink best and I am usually a very blue person in my color choices.

Kellie said...

I love both colourways of this fabulous design and either one would work with what I want to do - fussy cut a single clock to frame in an embroidery hoop to add to my small (but growing) collection of hooped fabrics on my sewing nook wall xx

Jen said...

I think I like the pink best - my three year old daughter is rubbing off on me! Thank you for the giveaway.

Hi
I absolutely love the red and aqua! The pattern looks adorable and I must say, I have bought from Spoonflower in the past and I have never been disappointed. I love the site!
What to make?? I know this sounds weird but an apron. I love my old, yucky, ready-for-recycling apron and I need a new one to show off!

My daughter has just watched the new Tinkerbell movie, in which the little girl makes a fairy house, all kitted out with bed and clock and pictures. I would make a fairy house cuckoo clock with the fabric!!

syocom said...

I follow your blog and love it. Those are such fun fabrics!

Karamat said...

Love the fabrics!! Both colors are great, but I think the pink is my favorite.

I'd probably make a pillow for my grandmother... the clocks remind me of the ones she had in her home.

I like the pink because it shows both colors well...however I would love either one! Thanks for sharing.

cakegirl said...

I am making a baby quilt for a new little girl and the pick would be a perect addition to my fabric selection.

Alicia Manning said...

Okay here goes, I have never tried to win something on "giveaways." I like to just stop by become inspired and move on but when I saw this fabric I instantly was obsessed and HAD to have it. Not only did the fabric remind me of your fabulous header but several other things.

First my grandparents who had passed away four years ago. I had requested to receive their cuckoo clock as a remembrance of them {but still have not seen that cuckoo yet.} Second my mother who also has this fabulous cuckoo because of the same grandparents {her in laws.} Lastly it reminds me of my trip to germany eons ago and I am still kicking myself for not purchasing a cuckoo then.

I don't know what I would make with it yet but I'm sure all to many things would come to mind and I would have a hard time deciding. Plus I think I win longest entry {sorry}

nanotchka said...

My daughter and I are doing a big art festival over labor Day week end that is called "Swiss Days". It's in a small mountain town in Utah with a heavy Swiss heritage. It draws over 100,000 people every year! I need a little cuckoo clock fabric to set the mood don't you think? It's just the cutest fabric ever! Would love a piece of the pink version! Great giveaway!

Adrienne said...

Typically I would go for the blue colourway but the pink really catches my eye! I do not have a stocking so I would make one for myself :)

Nova said...

Oh! it's wonderful! I do love a cuckoo clock ;)
Love the blue! I'd love to use a little in a craft apron.

I think I like the teal best myself. I think it would make a nice pillow backing for an appliqu├ęd or embroidered cuckoo clock on the front.

my daughter would prefer the pink and I would use it for the backing of the dool quilt she is making. Too cute.

Marcia said...

Growing up my grandfather had all sorts of cuckoo clocks and I loved to talk to him about them. They didn't keep the same time so when the clocks "chimed" it was a riotous sound. My favorite is the aqua and I would make something for my mother (her choice - pillow perhaps?).

Erin M. said...

I'm saving up pinks for my two little girls, So I'd love to add some pink cuckoo clocks into it.
