Crooked Brook Fabric Giveaway #1

I’m sure you all remember me writing about Crooked Brook, a label used by the atelier division of an art studio. They are a full service pattern making, sample making, custom embroidery, private label and apparel design studio, with small lot production capabilities. Since 1989, they have built a strong reputation of providing apparel designs, patterns, fit and production samples for many brand name catalogs and retailers, as well as wardrobe and costumes for movies, television and theater.

In addition, they design and manufacture men’s and women’s chef coats for the world’s most recognized chefs. Each one of their chef coats and aprons is made to order in the USA, and can be personalized with your choice of fabric, pockets, buttons, piping and embroidery.  They also have individual men and women for whom they make everything from custom vests, evening dresses and wedding gowns, to jeans and shirts.

As a result of all of this wonderful business, they have a great deal of fabric and other sewing supplies.  They have offered to allow me to host an awesome giveaway.  We’re hoping to make this a regular feature here on the blog so keep your eyes open in the future!  This time we are offering a box full of mixed woven cottons in these colors - dark blues and purple, red, white and sage green.  Here is a picture (click to make larger if you'd like!) …

Awesome right?!  So, here are the rules..

Looks like it( most of it anyway) would make a nice patriotic quilt- I'm working on a quilt of valor for my son in recognition for his 10 years in the Air Force! PLus I could use purple for another project. Robin- rnoel57@gmail.com

I would use the fabric to make a quilt to give to our local dialysis center. The patients there are always asking for blankets to cover-up with, while they are being treated. Lisa - lcdimaio@gmail.com

I rug hook and usually use wool as my main fabric, but I have branched off into using other fabric materials as well. I would use this in a wall hanging that I am hooking and the colors would be perfect.

As a veteran of the U. S. Army during the Viet Nam Era, I see a Quilt of Valor for someone at the Veteran's Home in Oxford, MS. I'd use the balance in charity quilts or sample blocks for my quilt guild. Thanks for this opportunity.

These would make a great center strip for string quilts. Very nice basic dark color and the strings would definitely pop. its_me29456@yahoo.com

Darlene said...

Aprons for myself and my family. We all love to cook, but we don't have a supply of aprons. So I end up having to spot treat grease spots on our clothing. I'd make full aprons out of it so our clothing is covered - the little 1/2 aprons just don't meet the challenge.

These look like the perfect fabrics to make a patriotic apron! We visited the Lincoln library and museum in springfield and I saw a child's patriotic apron that I want to recreate!

Lisa, that fabric looks like it would make a wonderful "teenage boy" very happy at the "Binky Patrol". It would be nice to add to some of the printed pieces I have in stash. Pick me so I can have a chance to help make a young man happy.

Country Threads said...

They would look very nice mixed with shirting fabrics for charitable boy's quilts.

quilts, table runners, door prizes for quilt bee.....I am sure that these fabrics might turn up in many projects....that would be determined at the moment of cutting....sundayquilter@msn.com

Bonni said...

I'm new to quilting but those colors are calling me to do something with flowers and greens. I'm working on some baltimore alburms right now and perhaps that is what is calling to me. LOL. Love that fabric grouping.

I love the Amish-ish colors. I'm pretty sure they'd find their way into an upcoming quilt for my guest room.

I would use these fabrics to make log cabin potholders that I would raffle off as prises to raise money for the Phoenix Childrens Hospital. I'm always looking for ways to give back to a hospital who cares so much for the kids they serve.

My mom and I make Quilts for the homeless in our area. And the colors you have would finish 3 or 4 quilts we have going right now. We only used donated fabric so it would really help. Thanks for considering me.

I would love to make a Judy Laquidara pattern quilt with these.

Jennifer said...

Well honey, I passed 18 up about forty years ago, so I think the age requirement won't hurt me. LOL! Seriously, I'd love to have this fabric because my passion is prints and I never have enough solids. If solids were all I bought till my dying day, I wouldn't come close to running out of prints! They'd be great for binkies.

Wendy said...

I would use this fabric to make my kids some shorts.... I have a pattern for a gender neutral pair of shorts and both of them have basically outgrown their last years clothes...and with no money this would be perfect and the colors would be perfect to go with most shirts....

My church makes quilts to give to local charities and to send overseas. We also sent some to Minot citizens who are victims of a record breaking flood. We would use it to "give a hug" to someone who needs to be warm and loved.

Kate said...

Lisa - it's great to read your blog!! I remember when you first posted about your interest in charity quilting!! You have accomplished so much - congratulations! If I win this fabric, I'll make quilts to donate to my quilt guild's charity quilting initiative called Community Quilts. Thanks for the give-away....

I could use these fabrics to help finish of my next batch of blankies for the folks who have lost eveything in the tornados in Alabama and Mississippe. I'm just looking to get the boarders done and then I can quickly quilt them and send them on their way. /Thank you for the wonderful offer to share them with all of us. Happy 4th of July, please be safe. Blessings, Sheila sheila.millar@suntust.com

I would like to make a quilt for the victims of the tornado that hit Joplin, MO with theses fabrics. It wouldn't be the same quilt that Grandma had covered them with--it was lost in the rubble of the tornado. But it would be a symbol of a new beginning, the onset of a new life, covered in your materials and my prayers.

Deb said...

Take out the white, and those are exactly the colors from an antique family quilt that I have. It would be fun to recreate that quilt...as it would have looked before the mice got to it!

I have been saving bits of solid fabrics for a pineapple quilt. Right now I have a pitiful small bag that might make a square or two, this stack would put me on my way.

My son lived in Joplin, MO. He has had a hard time finding a place to live. He lost much due to the tornado. He finally found a place to live in another town. I would love to use the material to make him a quilt. Something new for this next phase of his life. Thank you for this opportunity.

earth visitor said...

this fabric looks like it is screaming QOV with the red, white and blue - but I'd lay odds that I could do more than one project (especially adding from my stash) so there would be a love quilt for a cancer patient too rahobbit@yahoo.com

hdmoosie said...

I am teaching 4 granddaughters to quilt, this fabric would be perfect to make a small quilt out of they could raid my stash if they need more. We will use my accuquilt to cut the pieces and they can pick a pattern.
thanks for having a giveaway of the great fabrics!

GG said...

Hi Lisa, My first thought was I could use a couple more apron coverings in my home (& as gifts to some budding chefs). But I am involved with "Just For You" quilts w/ my guild that the colors would be so good for male hospital patients, that I'd use them there first.
Thanks for the offer
