  1. I like to make wacky, scrappy blocks with charms. (and Hello Petal is on my “to buy” list–love the kitty print)

  2. I love using charm packs in quilts and this summer I need to make two baby quilts. Either of these packs would be perfect. I would use them around a preprinted panel for a quick and beautiful quilt. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Birthday! And thanks for your delightful blog!

  3. Kate Spain is one of my favorite designers, so I’d prefer that one. I’m actually planning an equilateral quilt right now for which I already have a few Kate Spain fabrics pulled, but a charm pack would certainly make the cutting easier! Thanks.

  4. I’m new to your blog, but I love it already these both are very lovely gifts. I’m going to be making some baby quilts this summer. I’m also making some of your butterfly’s !! I’m sure there’s something in these packs that would be lovely in a butterfly. If I had to choose, then I guess it would be the Daydream pack. I hope that your birthday is lovely, and filled with surprises!! Enjoy the day!

  5. I’ve just started using pre-cut charms in quilts. To be honest, I usually just sew them up in simple baby quilt tops because I really love the look of it! (To get them a bit bigger, I’ll usually throw in a charm pack of solids or some other sort of sashing.)

  6. I love Hello Petal! I use charm packs in bags and quilts. I used a charm pack to make a whole stack of quarter square triangle coasters as gifts. Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. I’m new to sewing/quilting and to your blog but I could imagine making some lovely pillows for my friends (since they’ve been begging me to “make them something). Charms packs have been perfect for my projects! Thanks for the chance!

  8. Hello Petal has been on my buy list since Aneela showed sneak peek pictures!
    I would love to make a baby quilt with it.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  9. Charms are perfect for small projects – baskets, mini quilts pouches… I haven’t made a simple patchwork quilt yet (!) and I think Hello Petal would be a wonderful line for it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. I’ve only made one item with charm squares so far and that was a baby quilt for a little guy that is due any day now. If I win I would love the Kate Spain fabric,, I just love her designs.

  11. I have only once used a charm pack, but have wanted to try more! I am unsure yet what I would do though… Maybe pinwheels? Anyho0w, I would love Hello Petal, but either would be fantastic

  12. i like to keep it simple with charm packs and just sew the pretty pieces together in any kind of order. I love both charm packs, but the Kate Spain is my favorite.

  13. Happy Birthday! I have only used one charm pack before, for a challenge quilt, but I think they would be great for some sort of HST quilt!

  14. Happy Birthday. I love to use charm packs for HST’s and chevron quilts – I’d love the Hello Petal pack – thanks

  15. I’d like the Daydream collection. I love to make tote bags and charm packets make for some very colorful and bright totes.

  16. I’ve made a few wonky star quilts using charm packs… I’m planning though to make one that’s just a mix of neutal solids and prints randomly thrown together just to see what it’ll look like… I want something simple to practise some FMQ on, so that seems like a good way to go (and will still leave me a grid to work with for the quilting).

  17. i’ve never used a charm pack but would love a chance to try! both packs that you’ve chosen are lovely. thanks!

  18. I don’t really have a “go to” charm pack pattern. I just sorta surf around until I find one that looks like the fabric would shine in it.

    just in case: m3reyna at gmail dot com

  19. I love to make baby and lap quilts with charm packs. Sometimes just sewing them altogether in random fashion, sometimes sorting in colorways and adding sashing. Thanks for the giveaway! I would proudly use either bundle. I love aurifil too!

  20. I like using charm packs for scrappy quilts. I have several friends expecting babies soon, so I’ll probably be looking up good baby quilt patterns soon that use small pieces!

  21. Although I’ve been sewing for over 45 years, I’m a newbie sewer, so charm packs are also something new. I’ll be searching for tutorials and patterns for using these small pieces to make something for my granddaughters.

  22. I’ve only used charm packs twice… once they were used to cut applique pieces for a wall mini quilt and the other I used to make Christmas stockings πŸ™‚

  23. I like to use charm pack to make zigzag baby quilts or pillows. Fast to make and love the look. I like both but if I had to choose, I would pick Pink Petal

  24. I like making pillows and quilts with charm packs. I like making them into HST and then creating something from there. I am new to your blog, thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Happy happy birthday! I think I would choose Daydream – love that one! I love making half square triangles using charm packs – so easy to do. And HSTs can be used in a hundred ways! blessings, marlene

  31. Happy Birthday! Charms are great for table toppers, wall hangings, and scrappy totes. I love both prizes. Thank you for sharing!

  32. Love the Hello Petal charm pack! I like to use charm packs for sweet baby quilts. I have a few pregnant friends that this would be wonderful for starting their quilts πŸ™‚

  33. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway, I love both the prizes πŸ™‚ From charm packs, I like to make pinwheels or hourglass blocks.

  34. I’m quite fond of simple patchwork with charm squares these days, personally. add a quick border or even small sashing for a simple baby quilt — can’t get enough of simple patchwork!

  35. I like to make baby quilts and lap quilts with charm packs. I would be happy to win either charm pack.

  36. I like to make basic charm square quilts and I would really enjoy the Daydream pack. Thank you for the chance to win

  37. I like them both! I am a smidge more fond of the Hello Petal. I don’t use them often, but I love some of the quilted patchwork bags I’ve seen around pinterest!

    Happy Birthday, I hope you find yourself having an excellent day!

  38. Charm packs can be use for anything. I love to use them for bags, pillows, table toppers, placemats, baby quilts, etc.

  39. Oh, my! I was going to skip giveaway day as I have recently, but I love Aneela’s fabrics. I think I’d make myself a small piece of patchwork to use on a small bag with the charms. Or maybe a few bags. πŸ˜€

    Now, I’m not blog hopping, so I need to go check out your other posts to see if I should follow your blog, since you have such excellent taste in fabric.

  40. I like the Fat Quarter Shop’s new free pattern “Charm Pack Cherry.” So easy and so cute! And I also like your pink thread and charm pack combo.

  41. I have only used charms to make HST’s….so far!! lol Know are perfect for baby quilts tho too. Love both of your packs…will be happy with either…so cool!

  42. Happy birthday! I think charm packs are perfect for baby or toddler quilts, or for patchwork totes and zipper bags πŸ™‚ Both packs are pretty, but Hello Petal speaks to me πŸ˜€

  43. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great one! I like making D9P quilts with charm packs. Both charm pack options are beautiful and I would be perfectly happy with either. Thank you for the opportunity to win. πŸ™‚

  44. I have never made anything with a charm pack (newbie quilter) but I look forward to having a play, oh and I would love either

  45. Love the Hello Petal charm pack…perfect for a quilt for my baby girl! I often look on Moda Bakeshop for charm quilt patterns…they have great ones that free πŸ™‚

  46. I collect charm packs, but as yet have not actually used any of them! I love both of these sets and would be extremely to receive either. Happy Birthday! And thanks for this great opportunity.

  47. I love Daydream. I make many things with charm packs, and my new thing is taking block patterns and trying to make them charm pack friendly.

  48. i love the Hello Petal fabrics. I am new to sewing so I haven’t made anything with a charm pack yet. Would love some to make a lap quilt for my daughter.

  49. Happy Birthday. I like to make tote bags with charm packs. If I win I would like the Hello Petal fabric.

  50. I like to make disappearing 9-patch quilts with charm squares. I just add a coordinating solid for the centre blocks and I end up with a lovely quilt. I know a little girl who would absolutely love a quilt made with the Hello Petal pack, but I certainly wouldn’t turn my nose up at the Daydream set if I were lucky enough to win.

  51. I have made cushions and baby quilts with charm packs. Patchwork may be simple but I love it! Thank you for a chance to win one of these sets; I love both of them.

  52. I think either of these charms could be used in a baby quilt for a girl. I prefer Daydream but I do not think I would use the green thread with it.(Sorry).

  53. I like to use charm packs for cushion covers, I try out new quilt blocks and if i like them then i scale up to a quilt!

  54. I like charm packs because you get lots of different prints. Using them in a paper-pieced star would be awesome, but making a mini Dresden plate would be cute too!
    I think I’d really prefer the Daydream charm pack. Aneela Hoey’s fabric is gorgeous but it’s her Sherbet Pips I yearn for and anything else would just give me reason to get all wistful!

  55. Beautiful charm pack!
    I rarely use one charm pack but I would love to make a quilt with all those gorgeous fabrics from Aneela. Lucky me I got some on my holidays but still have to collect.

  56. I love charm packs. I’ve used them with the disappearing 9-patch & disappearing 4-patch patterns several times. Thanks.

  57. I love charm packs for quick table runners. Disappearing Nine Patch is a great pattern for charms. My favorite prize is the one with the Daydream charms.

  58. I’ve used charm packs for a Fall wall hanging and would love to make something different to change out in the Spring. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  59. I Love charm packs and half-square triangles! Thanks for the giveaway and either of those prizes are fabulous.

  60. I haven’t used charm packs yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so in a nice baby quilt! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!

  61. I’m going through a homewares phase – tea towels, pot holders, hand towels and charm packs are perfect – I love the hello petal range for its sweetness!

  62. The first thing I ever sewed was a tote bag made from an Aneela Hoey charm pack. It is looking rather tired now so would be great to make a new one with her new designs.

  63. Happy Birthday. I like to make quilts using charm packs easy peasy. Thanks for the giveaway. Thanks for your tutorials.

  64. hmm – soemtimes I take them apart for bee blocks – some get partly added to my I-spy-charm-square pile. Others get used with a solid. And a good way to show them off is to use them in a D9P pattern

  65. I’m currently using charms to make the honeysweet pattern by Moda – adorable. And I like the daydream fabric

  66. I like using charm packs to make basic baby quilts. Both sets are wonderful, I’d be so happy to win either of them!

  67. Happy Birthday to you and because it is your birthday I am going to choose Kate Spain’s Daydream bundle package. I just love her and try to keep up with her quilt patterns. I don’t have much of her fabric but this will help get me sta

  68. So far, I’ve only used charm packs to make a quilt but think I would use these to make patchwork zipper pouches.

  69. I’ve never used a charm pack before. I love using layer cakes for quick zippered pouches to hold gifts — maybe I’ll use charms to make a patchwork pouch!

  70. Hi,
    I have a tote bag pattern that I use charm square for and I would love to use Kate Spain’s Day Dream fabric for a tote bag! :o)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. I like poufs and floor cushions in simple patchwork squares. Both bundles are great so I would let you choose.

  72. I love simple patchwork baby quilts with charm packs. I would be so grateful for either prize, thanks! wonderlandbyalyce(at)gmail(dot)com

  73. Happy Birthday! There are a lot of new babies in my family so I like to use charm packs to put together some fast quilt tops for them.

  74. I’ve only used one charm pack and used it to make a baby quilt with HSTs. Love both of these collections and would make a quilt for my baby girl due in September, so if I had to choose would pick Hello Petal.

  75. Ooooooh! So pretty thread and charm packs! I would love “Petal”! That Blossom pink thread is so pretty! I have a charm pack of Posy and would love to mix the two up for a baby quilt. Or a nine patch mixed with a solid. Thank you for the chance!

  76. I usually make half square triangle with my charm packs- and then try a new layout nearly every time! Thanks for the giveaway!

  77. I like to make simple square patchwork quilts. Usually baby quilts. No preference…like them both. Thanks!

  79. I love to just do simple half square triangles with charm packs, for chevron or sawtooth star quilts, any number of patterns with the HSTs. I’d love the Hello Petal if I won, thank you!!

  80. Hi there, thanks for the giveaway. I LOVE the Aneela Hoey pack, been coveting it for some time πŸ™‚ I’m a quilty novice but I’d probably make some little pouches or use them in a quilt.

  81. I have actually never used a charm pack! I’d love to play around with one and see what I come up with! knw255 at nyu dot edu

  82. i would choose aneela’s Hello petal…she was one of my first internet friends years ago, so i always choose Aneela! i love using charms for double hour glass

  83. I like making simple patchwork quilts with Charm Squares. Baby quilts are my favourite. I love both Aeela Hoey and Kate Spain so either charm pack would be fantastic! Thanks for the opportunity!

  84. Those charms look like they need to be made into pretty hexies – actually I have been thinking that almost every fabric needs to be turned into pretty hexies. I’m totally obsessed with making them. I’ll have enough to for awesome projects soon.

  85. So far I’ve been making something similar to the charm pack cherry pattern at Fat Quarter Shop with charm packs. I would probably make another lap quilt for me because I don’t have one yet! I follow your blog by email! Thanks

  86. I’ve never used a charm pack, but these are adorable! I’ve recently become hooked on quilting, so either of these might become a quilt for my little girl. Thanks for the giveaway!

  87. I would make baby quilts with charm packs – I have never used pre-cut fabric and I look forward to the opportunity. Thanks.

  88. I like to make quilts with charm packs. Fat Quarter shop has a fun pattern where you use a printed charm pack and a solid charm pack to make a cool quilt. I’d love the Petal charm pack.

  89. I love chasrm squares, they are perfect for placemats, table runners, and baby quilts!! Thanks for the chance and Happy Birthday!!

  90. I’ve never actually used charm packs – but I bet it would make it a lot easier to throw together a scrappy quilt. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the lovely giveaway! I’d love to receive either of these lovely packs. πŸ™‚

    Oh – and happy birthday!! πŸ™‚

  91. I am working on several children’s quilts right now so these wonderful charm packs if i won would go into one of these quilt projects.

    Glad to have a chance to stop by your blog during this blog hop. I follow on BL.

  92. I have a really cute tote bag pattern that uses charms and also a baby quilt pattern called Charm Squares Baby Quilt. I love Kate Spain so I’d probably choose that pack.

  93. I’m new to charm packs! I just bought my first one two weeks ago to use in a scrappy block for an online bee, but I really love them. So nice to get a tiny piece of the whole line. I’m looking forward to making some drawstring bags with charm squares. i’ll just cut them into quarters for 2.5in pieces!

  94. ooh i love aneela hooey. I love charm packs because you get a variety of prints all together, i would use it in all different quilts because i like the scrappy look

  95. I would love to make the Aneela Hooey fabrics into a quilt to showcase her beautiful illustrations. They are just devine & I don’t have any of this line.

  96. I like to make zippered totes. These, however, would make a sweet little quilt for a girl. I have no preference.

  97. Happy Birthday! Thanks for participating. I follow your blog via Bloglovin’. notwendy at gmail dot com

  98. Jeni Baker has a cute pattern for a charm baby quilt. Either of the charm packs would be super cute but if I am lucky enough to get to choose I would probably lean towards Daydream. Thanks! notwendy at gmail dot com

  99. I love the Hello Petal fabric! I often like to use charm packs on table runners, but I am expecting a grand daughter soon, so I am thinking of a baby quilt.

  100. I like to use charm packs to make baby quilts for Project Linus. I usually just layout and stitch up…sometimes, I will use the twister tool to jazz it up. Either charm pack would be a great prize!

  101. I love to make baby quilts with charm packs and some yardage. There seems to always be a baby being born that needs a quilt. Thanks so much for the generous giveaway, I would love to try some Aurifil thread. Maybe I’ll be lucky! ;-> Toni Anne

  102. I’m a new follower through Bloglovin. YAY! I’ve found almost all of the blogs I read through Blog Hops. It’s a great way to find people who enjoy the same things, get a short bio and sometimes become online friends. Seems like a win, win. ;-> Toni Anne

  103. Thanks so much for the giveaways, and happy birthday! To be honest, I’ve never used a charm pack before! I would love to make a baby quilt for the little girl we are expecting this September, though. =)

  104. Happy Happy Birthday! I hope you had a fabulous day. I have some gift bags lined up, and summer sewing for my little one. Thanks so much for the chance!

  105. I’ve never used a charm pack pattern, but have been eyeing the new minis from Jaybird Quilts. Love the Hello Petal pack!
    syfalkenstein at gmail dot com

  106. I haven’t used charm packs, so I don’t have a favorite thing to sew. I would probably make a miniature quilt.

  107. I like using charm packs for table runners and small quilts. Thanks for a chance to win! julia(dot)glotova(at)gmail(dot)com

  108. I love to play with Hello Petal. I don’t know that I have a favorite pattern–I just really like squares sewn together.

  109. I make baby quilts with a pattern I saw on Swim.Bike.Quilt. The pattern is rings of squares with sashing between the rows. That doesn’t make sense, the way I described it, but it looks like tile floors to me, and the choice of charms really affects the mood of the quilt. I would choose the Aneela charms if I had the chance–love her whimsical illustrations.

  110. I love the hello petal bundle but they are both beautiful. I am not sure what I would make with it but I am sure my 9 year old would be more than happy to help me decide!

  111. Precuts are so fab! I’m always looking for ways to use them; I haven’t yet tried Charm Pack Cherry. (I really like the Daydream/green set, btw.)

  112. I haven’t used charm squares yet but I purchased a quilt book with patterns for charm squares, so I’m ready to get started.

  113. I don’t have a go to charm pattern but Moda Bake Shop has lots of options. Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day.

  114. I have grand plans to make some of the “Nickel Quilts” in the books I have, but it’s really my favorite thing just to make I-spy kid’s quilts.

  115. These are cute! I love pinwheels, but might try to find a new pattern to do w/charm packs! Oh hst – I have a great pattern from craftsy!

  116. I started collection charm packs with the notion of making a true charm quilt — no duplicates. But now they are my treasure box, my box of things to fondle and look at. I’m getting better at thinking about mini quilts, and about using the charms as the focus against a neutral, simple and sweet and perfect for a baby quilt or a picker-upper for a friend.

  117. It seems crazy, but I have actually never done a project with a charm pack before. They are such adorable fabrics, I’m hoping to win some, and see what I can do.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway

  118. I like to stack my charms to see how tall of a tower I can make. No, really, I have 9+ yards worth of charms, mostly from rainbow swaps. I really need to pick a project and get it done.

  119. I like to make everything from quilts to sewing machine covers, mug rugs, notebook covers, etc. Thank you so much for this giveaway!

  120. Happy belated birthday! I like the charming stars pattern on moda bakeshop, but simple patchwork or HSTs are also good.and I love Hello Petal!

  121. I like to use charm packs to make cushion covers although I have just pulled a charm pack and some solids to make a quilt. If I could choose I would go for Kate Spain’s charm pack as I love everything by her.
    Thank you for a great giveaway!

  122. I’ve never used charm packs, but I would probably use it to make a patchwork baby quilt. Thanks for the super cute giveaway! And Happy belated Birthday!

  123. I haven’t made anything with a charm pack yet. I have one that was given to me but I’ve been too afraid to take it apart and look inside. Guess I’ll have to!

  124. i love just simple square patchwork baby quilts made with charm packs, usually combined with some coordinating solids. Thanks for the giveaway – I’d love either prize!
