  1. Mary says:

    My grandson has a birthday coming soon. He has enjoyed school especially since the day he got his own desk in first grade. He deserves a special gift of his own too.

  2. Beth B says:

    I just love this pattern!
    There are two young people that deserve a quilt. My younger grandson should have one since I made one for his brother and he is my grandson.
    The other is the 11 year old daughter of my husband’s cousin. Her mother virtually abandoned her soon after birth and her father is not a good example for her and he cannot care for her now. Her grandmother, my husband’s aunt, has been her care giver for several years. She has some learning issues, but has, with her grandmother’s help, made some progress. I know a quilt made especially for her would help her realize how special she is and that others care for her also.

  3. Marce DeMars Hall says:

    My oldest grandson definitely deserves a new quilt. He is still using the twin size I made for him 8 years ago!!

  4. donna says:

    The youngest of my grandchildren started school this year so would enjoy making her a quilt.

  5. Christina Reitz says:

    I was initially going to say that I would give a quilt to my own son or daughter, but then I recalled a conversation I had today with a local boutique owner. She and her husband adopted two teens (a boy and a girl) several years ago. Fast forward to today, and those two kids have grown up and between them have 4 kids (the boy/young man has one child and the girl/young woman has three). For various reasons, the shop owner is in the process of adopting all four of those children (and apparently there is the potential for at least some contesting of the adoptions, even though the ones that could possibly contest really don’t have much if any contact with their respective children). I would love to make a quilt for each of those four kids–who range in age from 7 down to about a year or so–so they *all* have something special to claim as their very own!

  6. Diana Cruz says:

    Babies In Need would be one of my choices. A non-profit organization locally helping families who need some help with a new born child layette, quilt, diapers and car seats.

  7. Roberta Johnson says:

    My step-granddaughter is autistic. She doesn’t get excited about a lot of things, but she would get excited about a new quilt, I am sure. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this giveaway.

  8. Diana says:

    I guess by young we mean anyone who hasn’t yet attained our own age!! lol. So my young person is actually younger than I am and I intend to make him a quilt with a book motif. Once when he was “down” and we were worried about him, he told us not to worry because there are so many books out there he still has to read and he intends to stick around to read them.

  9. Jennifer says:

    I know of two kids, ages 9 and 7, who are in foster care. They were forcibly removed from their mother and are adjusting to have a life where they are learning to do all the daily things we all take for granted (going to school, eating home cooked food, having a regular bedtime, etc). These kids will enjoy having the quilts I make them.

  10. Linda S says:

    My niece/goddaughter is 10 and the only girl child. I want to give her somethng special and “girly”.

  11. Marilyn Polak says:

    A lovely lady at work is having her first baby and is very excited about it. This would make a lovely gift to welcome her new family member.

  12. Julie A.B. says:

    Our Granddaughter Rainy is 7yrs. old. I have made her a couple of quilts. She is now a” big girl” who would like a ” big girl” quilt. Thank-you~

  13. claire connell says:

    My niece Hannah. She has had MS all her adult life and is beginning to be affected badly. She is going down fighting and trying to pack as much into life as possible. A friend gave me a quilt that was made especially for me and it would be wonderful to be able to pass such a gift of love onto Hannah to have and wrap herself in at 4 am when things are tough. So she would know how much she is loved.

  14. Linda says:

    I would love to make a quilt for one of nephews. He put in some good years of studying and is now ready to go out and work. A comfy, cuddly quilt would greet him after a hard day’s work.

  15. floribunda says:

    My youngest brother has 4 kids, and all received quilts at birth and when they were about 6 — except the youngest boy, who is in line for a “kid” quilt to replace his baby quilt!

  16. DianeH says:

    I have three beautiful nieces who are sisters. The eldest and the youngest are both married now and both have had babies so lots of quilting has gone their way. The middle sister is a school teacher who just returned to Canada after a year in Australia.
    She is busy setting up house now and a beautiful quilt would be a fabulous gift for her.

  17. JJ Anghelone says:

    I used my new longarm quilter to make a quilt for my 2nd granddaughter as a high school graduation gift for her to use in her college dorm. I would now like to make one for my oldest granddaughter who is attending college in another state. She has her own apartment now and I rarely get to see her. I would like for her to know that she is in my thoughts very often and that I love her. With a quilt from me she can be reminded that her grandma is very proud of her and sends her love every day.

  18. Carla G says:

    I think my son deserves a quilt (both my sons do). I’m learning to quilt, and so he helps me pick fabrics and he’s already picked the pattern for his quilt. Hopefully this winter I will get to it. :) Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  19. Terri says:

    I just made a quilt for a 4-year-old girl who has a new sister. Someone else made a quilt for the new baby, so I made one for the big sister. Daphne is in a play group w/ my grandson and another little girl. They get together regularly and have done things like plan a garden that included a corn maze, sunflowers, marigolds and pumpkins! They even made their own scarecrow to watch over the garden. They are learning together as well as playing together. I would love to win one of these bundles so that I will be ready for my next “surprise” quilt!

  20. Bonnie Pfrimmer says:

    I have a new step-granddaughter (age 10) that was just added to the family. I think she deserves a quilt to wrap herself in. She has never had anyone make her anything before. Thank you for sharing.

  21. Kristen Bohl says:

    I have 2 nieces, one is 2 and one is 4 months old – there is also another baby niece or nefew ob the way. The 2 yr just moved into a big girl room to make room for the baby – a beautiful new quilt would be very special.

    They have inspired me to start quilting, it’s us a beautiful thing to watch a baby begins to play with tags and start to notice colors and patterns and start to grab things and feel things! I am consumed with so many I quilts I would like to make! I am a 4th generation quilter. All of us in the family get quilts for our wedding, they are so meaningful! I love the patterns you offer! Thank you!

  22. Regina says:

    I would make a quilt for my daughter. She is a junior in high school and is a little nervous about starting the process of getting ready for college. We went to our first College Information night last night and it dawned on me that I really should start a graduation quilt if it is to be completed in time. I think a quilt made out of Sunnyside would delight her and be a delight to work with!

  23. Barb Johnson says:

    Well, the young person I have in mind isn’t quite in my life yet… My nephew’s wife is expecting, and I plan to make a quilt for my new great niece or nephew! They live in San Francisco, and the nights there get chilly year round, so a quilt will be the perfect baby gift!

  24. Jocelyn says:

    I have a young niece, 13 years old, and she is so deserving of a quilt. She helps her Mom with the younger children, and has such a sweet disposition. I’d love to make a quilt for her, as I think she would really appreciate it. Thanks for your very generous giveaway.

  25. Karlene says:

    We have many military families in our neighborhood and many of these folks are still being deployed. My neighbor just gave birth to a little girl and the dad had to deploy the next day. I think a cheerful little quilt would be just the thing for her while she waits a year for her daddy to come home.

  26. Roxannne Simonds says:

    Perfect colors for a baby quilt for my friend’s new grandson! Lovely fabric!

  27. Shirley Wells says:

    My great-niece has had a difficult time in her short life (six yrs old), yet her disposition remains sunny and cheerful–just like this beautiful fabric. Would love to win so I could use it to make her a quilt of her very own.

  28. Deborah DeBerry says:

    It would have to be my granddaughter. I’m 62 and she’s 14 months. I have watched her since she was born. I set up my sewing machine in empty dining room and between her awake periods I either sewed or cut. I would love to make her a quilt that she can use when she’s older. Something to remember the person who watched over her, and loved her with all her heart, a quilt of love and comfort.

  29. Amanda says:

    For my friend who is getting married next June.

  30. Cherice says:

    Great quilt to make WITH my 13 year old niece. She is learning to sew and looking to start a quilt.

  31. Kim M says:

    Love Sunnyside! My little brother could really use a quilt. He’s spent many years suffering from depression and has really made a turn around. He also moved all the way across the country from his family to pursue his dream and I couldn’t be more proud of him!

  32. sandie deahl says:

    wonderful color selections!

  33. LizA. says:

    A friend’s granddaughter just spent a month in the hospital and is still very sick. She definitely needs a quilt to help her recovery.

  34. Jeanne says:

    My young teen granddaughter deserves a quilt because she is such a giving thoughtful person who is a blessing to our family.

  35. Rebecca says:

    I would love to make a quilt for my teenage neighbor. She’s being raised by a single mom, and has been a big helper to her with babysitting and other responsibilities. It would be great to surprise her with something special like a quilt.
    ourbusylittlebunch(at)hotmail(dot)com

  36. Tiffany says:

    I made a quilt for my in-laws, but have yet to make one for my own parents! My mom has made a few quilts in her lifetime, so I’m a little intimidated. Whatever I make for her will be really special.

  37. Tricia M. says:

    I would love to make a quilt for my sisters baby that is due in April. We just found out she is pregnant! This is a very exciting time for us as she was told she could never have children. She had surgery done in June and was told they may need to do a hysterectomy in the near future. And now she is pregnant! This little guy or gal truly deserves a beautiful quilt because he/she is a miracle. Thank you for this great giveaway!

  38. Donna Gerken says:

    My goddaughter is having a baby girl in December. I would love to make the baby quilt from these fabrics… Thanks for the chance to win them, they are wonderful.

  39. Sherrye says:

    I would make this quilt for my new grandson, Grant. He was due to enter our world yesterday, but he’s just not ready to grace us with his presence just yet! Hopefully it will be today!!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  40. Roberta Kennedy says:

    These fabrics are so bright and cheerful! They’d give a big lift to anyone on a dark winter day!

  41. Lyn Kaufmann says:

    The children in my life are Jack and Frank. Frank is our son and Jack is his buddy from middle school. We had just gone through a military move to WA state when Frank was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Now, 18 months later, he has had successful surgery with only 10 percent of the tumor still left.
    Last month, his buddy Jack’s Mom sent an emergency text. Jack had just had brain surgery! A sinus infection that entered the brain. Unbelievable. He is doing well now and just got the pic line removed and had a good MRI.
    The boys new motto is “Brain Buddies Forever”. We are not even in the same state anymore but these boys have a bond for life!

  42. Bonnie Strait says:

    I would make this quilt for my daughter-in-law’s best friend. Her husband passed away recently and she had a darling little girl after his death. She’s raising her all alone and I think both of them deserve some comfort in the form of a a quilt!

  43. Nona T. says:

    I want to make this quilt for Marci, a lady in my village who tirelessly takes in foster children. She always makes sure that they have a safe place to stay until their living situation can be straightened out.

  44. Jacklynn Grimm says:

    I would make this quilt for my great-niece Denise – she is the middle child between two boys who get more attention (both good and bad!) than she does. I’m in Wisconsin and she’s in California, and we don’t see each other often, this quilt would be a big hug from her Aunt Jackie. Thanks for the give away!

  45. Sandra Timmons says:

    This would be the ideal quilt to make for my niece. All of the fabric that has been shown to us is just perfect. Any one of us would appreciate any fabric selected to help make this quilt. I just love Sunnyside by Kate Spain. I just love her fabric lines as well as her quilting patterns but quilters should not be picky. Thank you for the Playground Back to School Party this week.

    Sandi Timmons

  46. Carolyn Brown says:

    I would love to make a quilt for my great-grandaughter who is always so very
    interested in my sewing or mostly repairing stuffed animals, patching clothes,
    making pillows and has played with my fabric since she was two years old. She
    uses it to wrap around her as though she is designing clothes.

  47. Pat Bandura says:

    All my grands have both baby and big kid quilts so anything new would be donated to either a women’s shelter or the vets hospital. Love these fabric lines

  48. Joanna says:

    I’m planning on making a quilt for my sister’s granddaughter. She is a lovely young girl who will be nine in October. She loves sports and has begun field hockey this year. She knows what she likes, so I need to scope out exactly what she wants before I even begin the project. This quilt will be one design I’ll show her when she’s making her choice.

  49. Mary Katharin says:

    A co-worker with my husband has a mentally challenged child who would love a quilt! I know how much bright colors and patterns can affect a child along with the love going into each stitch.

    I gave a bright red/orange/green quilt to another mentally challenged child when he was in the hospital a while back. He LOVED the quilt and still sleeps under it. He says he feels loved when he is warmed by it.

  50. Nancy B from Many LA says:

    My first grandchild, a girl, is due this November. I think she deserves another quilt, because you can never have too many. LOL!

  51. JanetB says:

    A former co-worker of mine (“former” because I retired) is a young man who has served in the Army with four tours of duty in the Middle East. He and his wife are both deserving young people. While Tom has defended his country, his wife has home schooled their three children and kept their life as normal as possible during Tom’s deployments. They are both deserving young people in my mind.

  52. Kay Mc says:

    My 11 year old granddaughter really deserves a new quilt. She is getting out of the little girl stage & wanting something a little more grown up. She is wanting to learn to sew so badly, so I am trying to teach her when we are together. Problem is that she lives 90 miles away & her mother doesn’t sew at all, so our sewing together is kind of spotty. She would really like this pattern & fabric. She has a genetic condition that causes her to grow tumors on her nerve endings all over her body & had to have brain surgery 18 months ago, but is doing well since then. It will be a life long battle for her to keep them under control.

  53. Terry Rowland says:

    My young love is my Granddaughter. She is so full of life you can not do anything but smile when she comes into the room. I enjoy giving things to her and watching her reaction I made a small quilt for her to take naps with all out of 2″ hst of bright scraps she spent hours playing eye spy with it

  54. Lisa Marie says:

    My nephew got married a year ago to a girl who would love to learn to quilt. I have given her a few quilts which she has been thrilled with. I think if I were lucky enough to win I would use this fabric to teach her to quilt. She and I could choose a beginner pattern and make the quilt together. I’ll bet she would really treasure a quilt she helped make! I think she would especially like the Sunnyside fabrics.

  55. Melissa says:

    There are tons of people in my life who need a quilt for a sad reason. But I’m going to share something positive – my cousin’s little one is four and is the cutest most loving kid ever. Such sweet kids deserve quilts just for brightening everyone’s day!

  56. Helen Jennings says:

    I have a new grand child coming in March. This child will need all the help it can get. Not the best situation.

  57. Nancy in Minnesota says:

    Well, young to me is my nephew, the Marine, posted in Afghanistan missing his 3-month old baby whom he has yet to meet in person. I’d love to make a quilt with photo prints of his son and his lovely bride. The Playground pattern would work well. Can’t you just imagine giggly baby faces in the centers of each of those blocks?

  58. Janet says:

    I think “young” is a relative term…so my daughter deserves a quilt. She is Mommy to my three beautiful grandchildren. She is an amazing Mommy and a wonderful person. I have made quilts for her children, but not yet for her. With a two year old, a five year old, and a seven year old and all their activities, she finds time to be a board member and volunteer her time with a wonderful charity that provides opportunities for families and young children to give back to their community with service projects.

  59. Debi says:

    The young person in my life is a soon to be born little girl with Down’s syndrome. She is my colleagues first grandchild. She deserves a quilt because she will have a lot of struggles ahead and tons of family to love her.

  60. Barbara Corbitt says:

    A very good friend of mine has adopted five, yep, five children. Two of them are in the hospital and will be there for awhile. They both want their own quilts to use while in the hospital. These children are very special children and have been through more turmoil already than most people go through in a lifetime. My incom . Is less than four hundred dollars a month for disability so buying fabric is not an option. Can everyone who reads this please say a quick prayer for them babscorbitt@ gmail dot com

  61. Shari K says:

    I am planning a quilt for a c0-worker’s new baby girl. She arrived 6 weeks early, but is doing well. She is so tiny but perfect.

  62. Cindy DuLany says:

    I love to make quilts for the local woman’s shelter that allows families to be safe. All the little girls and boys need to have something of their own to cuddle and have a sense of security. A big hug when the world is scary..

  63. Rhonda Best says:

    I would probably make this quilt for my grand daughter. She would really enjoy it on cold Montana winter nights!

  64. Jan LaBeause says:

    My niece is expecting her 4th child at Christmas. The baby girl will be named Shelby Joe in memory of my beloved husband Joe who passed away 18 months ago. I always make quilts for new babies, but this one will be very special :)

  65. Michele Etter says:

    I have a niece that has always been special to me! Her mom keeps her away from the family I’d love to make her a quilt in bright colors to let her know her dad’s side of the family is still here and loves her very much. This would be a warm hug from her family every night!!!!

  66. Susan says:

    I would gift my almost 15-year-old nephew with a quilt. He has cystic fibrosis and was recently diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes as one of many complications for CF. He gets cold easily and his mom is currently unemployed and they have to keep the heat turned down in the colder months. Plus, my nephew is a loving and kind kid, very smart and talented.

  67. Donna P says:

    My grandson already has 1 quilt, but it has been loved HARD! He and his family have just moved into a “new to them” home and he finally has his own room. Even at 14 he loves to snuggle under his quilt and has informed his mom that he needs a new quilt for his new bed, in his new room! Can’t wait to see what pattern he comes up with!

  68. Nancy M says:

    At the present time, I do not have a young person to make a quilt for, so I would make a quilt for a childrens’ charity.

  69. Janet Autrey says:

    My grandsons love to snuggle and read books so a quilt to cuddle under would be perfect!

  70. Linda Kemp says:

    Since I switched from crochet to quilting I would like to make quilts for my two granddaughters and my grandson. They all have a stack of afghans, but no quilts yet.

  71. Carol says:

    My daughter, who is doing so well in every aspect of life.

  72. Lee says:

    My nephew and Godson is working on his Eagle Scout badge. He is a super young man and I would love show him how much we love him and are proud of him by making him a quilt! thank you!

  73. Regina says:

    My son is always an easy one to quilt for – but right now I am working on one for my nephew. He’s a great kid and growing into a great teenager – and has been a great older cousin to my son – but we live so far away that I don’t get to see him often. I want to send him a quilty hug from his Aunt and let him know how great he is.

  74. Renea says:

    I have a new grandson (1 month old already) and he needs a new quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  75. Sandy Curtis says:

    I have 3 grandchildren and have made quilts for the 2 girls, now I need to make one for my 8 yr. old grandson.

  76. Claudia Burns says:

    Oooh, blue is a good background too!

  77. Kathy Stoessner says:

    It amazes me how different colors make such a huge impact. The same quilt done so many ways is interesting.

  78. Sandy Gibson says:

    I have grandchildren whom I would love to make a quilt for! I really like the pink line!

  79. Lori says:

    A gal I work with is due any day! It’s been a long awaited pregnancy and baby so this would be a nice gift.

  80. Anne Welker says:

    I have two beautiful granddaughters who both deserve a quilt. One is now confined to a wheelchair because of a motorcycle accident when she was 18. The other was diagnosed with adult onset epilepsy at the age of 31.

  81. Linda Lee says:

    I have a young friend who finally has her own room after years of waiting for an older sister to move out. She’d love a new quilt!

  82. Belinda Wright says:

    a young woman I work with just lost her brother in a shooting and had her baby early, just under 4 lbs. she definitely needs all the comfort she can get!

  83. Amanda Best says:

    I would make a fun quilt like this for my niece. A nice homemade quilt is perfect for a sweet girl who loves crafts.

  84. jean says:

    My niece is having a baby in November, so I want to make a quilt for her. Thanks for the chance to win!

  85. Patricia S says:

    I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever for my first grandchild…’nuff said! lol

    Thanks sew much for this chance to win your generous giveaway. :-D

  86. I have a new great niece that would like a quilt of her own.

  87. JOY says:

    My niece needs a quilt :) She is the youngest on one side of the family and never got one because the aunt who used to provide a quilt for every baby passed away …

  88. DebbieKL says:

    I’m planning to make twin size quilts for my toddler girls for when they move out of their cribs!

  89. Barbara says:

    My grandchildren always deserve a new quilt.

  90. KT says:

    I would make a quilt for my daughter’s friend who remains cheerful despite her father’s poor health as he waits for a kidney transplant that would allow him to return to work.

  91. Dorian says:

    What a cute pattern, and looks nice in so many colorways. My third child is 9, he hasn’t had a quilt made for him since he was a baby, so it’s time for a bigger quilt :) We get snow in the winter and he is such a skinny little thing, he gets cold real easily. So he really deserves a quilt to keep warm with.

  92. Joyce Mitchell says:

    I have two nieces that are expecting – one due in October & the other due in January. So I want to make baby quilts for each of them. I finished the October baby quilt this past weekend. And I’d love to win some fabric to make other other baby quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  93. Betty S says:

    Wow. That is hard to choose, I have three grandsons and a new granddaughter. I would love to make each one a quilt, because each one is very special to me. But by the time I get it done, my next grandchild will be born, in Febuary. So maybe he will be the lucky one and get this quilt. I have made a quilt for each grandchild so far, even more than one, but each one gets one when they are born.

    I would love to make my baby sister a quilt. She works so hard as a single mom of a daughter who is also a single mom trying to make it through nurseing school. My sister had breast cancer and is still struggeling with her health and other health issues. I think it would just give her some comfort and show her she is loved and thought of often.

  95. Would love to use these to make a quilt for my adopted niece as she finishes up AIT for the Army Reserve.

    My sister-in-law is due in April, so I’d love to make a baby quilt for the little bundke of joy… So the baby would know that his/her aunt loves her :)

    One of the young members in my community was in a terrible car accident. Three others died, and one other was serioiusly injured. I have already presented one with a quilt, but this one young man will be paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of his life. I want to make him a quilt, too.

  99. Marly says:

    My granddaughter, Aimee, is eight years old today and she really needs a new quilt to replace the one I was making for her eight years ago. It was my first ever quilt and a case of trial and error (a lot of error, and very trying) which took ages. I thought when I saw this design yesterday that this is just the one for her, and I love it in the Simply Sweet fabrics.

    We just had a family in the community who just had a house fire and they have three children – I’m sure each of them could use a little comfort right now.
