Charming July: The Kate Spain Edition {Giveaway} *CLOSED*

*** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***
Winner is: Lara from Luellabella

I love Kate Spain’s work, so I’ve decided to decree July to be Kate Spain month.
I’m lucky enough to have both of Kate’s new lines available in my store, Fabric Buzz.

Serenade is lovely. Earthy. Warm. I have plans on making some cushions and perhaps a throw sized quilt with this fabric range. My couch is brown, so I think these colours will work well in my living room.

Serenade by Kate Spain - Chart

Cuzco is bright with lot’s of blues, pinks and oranges. It reminds me of Terrain, one of Kate’s previous and very popular, ranges of fabric.

I love them both, but prefer Cuzco - just love those vibrant colors! I would make... perhaps a table topper... Thanks for the chance!

Unknown said...

Oh wow! For myself I would totally love to win a charm pack of cuzco ^_^ I love those colours. But I have promised my mum I would make a table runner for her and dad's new house, and Serenade would be perfect! Their house is browns, blues and oranges ;) Fingers crossed, Yay! ^_^

They are really both so lovely. I think I would prefer Cuzco! Thanks so much!

Kelly G said...

Oh WOW!
I am so loving that Cuzco range! So bright and bubbly! This range would be perfect for the Craftsy BOM Quilt! I won't go into too much detail on how much money I have wasted trying to find suitable fabrics, although I now have a good stash of salmon/red and white! LOL

Christine M said...

They are both lovely but I think I would choose Serenade. I'd like to make either a bag or a table runner. Thanks for the chance.

Unknown said...

I would choose Cuzco...I really had a thing for brights at he moment. I have been thinking of a quilt for my oldest...I think this would be perfect if I won.
Thanks for the great comp.

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

Well I've got Cuzco so I'm gonna have to go Serenade! It would make a gorgeous cushion for the chair at my sewing machine - I need more lumbar support! Thanks Anorina :)

Linda Coleman said...

It would have to be Serenace, it would make a great throw for the colder evenings

Britt-Inger said...

I love Cusco and I think it could be an awesome table cloth. Thanks for the give away

Jennie P. said...

Serenade because of the wood grain print! I'd use them in a quilt or apron maybe.

Sooli said...

I love the Cuzco because if there's one thing I love its BRIGHT colours! Tricky to say what I'd make but I seem to be collecting fabrics in those colours at the moment so I'm thinking something on white, perhaps a granny square quilt or pinwheels. Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary said...

I love the Cuzco, it would make a great tote/purse.

Fifi said...

Cuzco i prefer ;) for a bag and book cover and wallet,
or Serenade for a table runner

Thanks for the chance!!!!!!!

Sandryte said...

I prefer Serenade :) I'd like to make a baby sleeping bag from it. And if there is any fabric left, I would renew a handmade toy garland above the crib. Thank you!

AJ said...

Cuzco!! I'm a huge fan of Terrain and it is similar! I'm teaching my sister to quilt so I'd use if for a sew-a-long with her.

Anonymous said...

Oh Anorina my favourite is Serenade,they are both beautiful colours,thankyou so much for hosting this,now fingers crossed,lol.xx

Outback Crafter - Debra said...

Wow they are lovely ranges.

I would love to win Serenade, it is 'modern earthy' and I would make a baby quilt for my 'modern earthy' pregnant friend.

Thanks for the great competition again.
Debra

Caz@theaccidentalquilter said...

Kate Spain Month .... in my birthday month, just perfect! I am working with some Verna at the minute, my all time favourite. I have had it here for so long, patting and patting some more. If I won, Serenade would sit in my fabric petting pile till I decided what to make. I have a big pile!

Sheila said...

I love the Cuzco, would make a great BBQ table topper, and would remind me of delicious "Cuzco Sours" I shared with a friend.

Leo said...

I like Cuzco better - and I would use it for an Epp-pouch ... and I need some potholders and I will always find some other small things to do with the rest.

Irina said...

I'd choose Serenade and I think I'd make a baby quilt. thanks for the chance!

nilmerg said...

I'd go the cozco. I'm going to make my parents a queen quilt to celebrate their ruby wedding anniversay, and these fabrics would go perfectly. I've never been able to buy Kate Sapin yet, but I love to admire her fabrics from affar. Thanks.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

these are both beautiful fabrics..picking Serenade..thanks for this chance.

Lisa Marie said...

They are both gorgeous but I would choose Cuzco to use with some Terrain pieces I've been hoarding. Thanks for the chance to win!

Michell said...

Would love to win Serenade and would make a table runner

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

I'd choose Cuzco and I'd make a beach tote for the pool.

Joy said...

I love Seranade. It would lend itself beautifully to a modern block of the month quilt.

Charlene S said...

Iilove them both. Serenade is the one I would choose to make a table runner with place mats for my table.

krisgray said...

The cool colors of Cuzco really appeal to me. Lovely giveaway! I would make a summertime table topper for the table I brought home from my grandma's house.

Faddict said...

The colours in Seranade are my faves, I love browns, greens and oranges! I've just used a 'Terrain' charm pack for my almost complete cushion covers and had to look at sooo many cute patchwork patterns to make a decision! I've only made one quilt so far and I'd really love to do another that's a bit more ambitious patchwork wise, so that's what I'd do:)

Maria Kievit said...

Love the colours of Cuzco! I'm thinking a nice table runner and maybe some chairpads to go with it would go well with this selection. Thankfs for the giveaway.

Jacklynn Grimm said...

I would love to win the Cuzco. I have a Terrain charm pack and yardage for a table runner, and I would see if any of it could be combined for a one-of-a-kind Kate Spain msterpiece!

JuneBug said...

I love the colors in Serenade, so I would pick that one. And I've been wanting to try making a zig-zig quilt, so I think maybe I'd pair with a coordinating solid, and do just that.

yorkie mom said...

Love Serenade!

B Greene said...

They are both gorgeous, but I will choose Serenade. I think I would make a pair of pillows for my bedroom. I need some more color in there!!

Gemma@prettybobbins said...

Google just ate my comment :( I would love the Cuzco. Just before I read your giveaway was thinking of my Aunt who crafts and quilts and gave me lots of crafty gifts as a teenager. Whilst she would probably select Serenade, I think the Cuzco is GORGEOUS and would make her a lap quilt with it. She deserves something beautiful to brighten up her new home and I know she would love something from me <3

Devon said...

I like serenade--warm colors are my favorites! I would make a set of little placemats or a table runner!

Michele T said...

I love Kate Spain's fabric designs and Cuzco is my new love! Thanks for the chance!! I would make some placemats to put some pizzazz to my dinner table!!

Ella said...

Serenade...and I think a bag. Thanks for a chance to win.

Waverlee said...

I love them both but if I had to choose it would have to be Serenade. I would make a baby quilt with it, with grey sashing.

Mystica said...

Serenade - I too would go for a baby quilt!

Sunnybec said...

Serenade for me and I would make a table runner with it. Thanks for the chance. Linda

Sammy said...

I love Serenade, and I will make a beautiful cushions for the wicker set in my sun room. thanks

Sammy said...

I love Serenade, and I will make a beautiful cushions for the wicker set in my sun room. thanks

Chelsea said...

Both are great but I'm thinking serenade just because it wasn't my automatic choice, so it would challenge me more. Does that make any sense at all? Although I'll probably just do what I always do with charms and add it to them to my stack of hexies for my hexie charm quilt.

Anya said...

Both look lovely, but I'd choose Cuzco and make a bag for myself. Thank you for the chance!

Teresa F. said...

Thank you so much for the lovely giveaway. I'd love to win Serenade, it would look great on my sofa,too.

drmithome said...

I like Serenade to make some patchwork pouches.

beaquilter said...

what fun fabrics. If I win I'd be happy with EITHER- you pick! I've seen several cute charm pack quilt patterns, so I'm sure I'd make something like that, maybe a little bow tie quilt? or something with a coordinating solid... I don't know

Lisa Cox said...

Oooh, I love the patterns in Cuzco! I have a wonderful charm pattern that is similar to a disappearing 9 patch. I've used it with some other great fabrics.
I think I would make a lovely lap quilt for my daughter.
Thank you for the chance to win this.

katie@stvital said...

I would love Cuzco. I would maybe incorporate it into a quilt? Kate Spain has graced one of my finished quilts and two WIP's.

Laura said...

I just had a conversation about Kate Spain this morning and it basically consisted of the statement that I love everthing she designs. I would love to have a charm pack of Serenade to make some adorable baby gifts. Thanks for the chance to win!

JustPam said...

I love Cuzco. I have some of her other fabrics that this would look great with to make a quilt.

conny's quilts en creaties said...

Great give away, thanks for organizing. I love to give it a change for cuzco. I am fond of blues. I would like to use these for my mini baskets quilt (WIP) in which I already used the terrain series, I think they will combine very well (all baskets are on a white background)

Meredith said...

I would love to win the Cuzco charm pack and would probably make a quilt with it!

Diane said...

So hard to choose! But I think I would like to make something with the Serenade group. I'd buy more and make a quilt for my daughter.

HELLO! LOVE THE SERENADE! I THINK I'D LIKE TO MAKE SOME NEW PILLOW COVERS FOR THE FRONT PORCH! THANK YOU FOR SHARING1

LC said...

I love Cuzco so much! I love Kate Spain period, and I'm so looking forward to Cuzco, and it reminds me of Terrain too. I also need new cushions for the sofa, so that's what I'd make.

quilary said...

I'd pick cuzco - and I'd use a dark blue solid as sashing for a quilt.

Carrie P. said...

I was going to say cuzco because I had not seen Seranade but I really like that one better. thanks for a chance. I am not sure what I would make.

sherryberrybim said...

I would choose Cuzco because I love the blue. Reminds me of old fashioned tiles.
I am currently making some charity quilts so this fabric would probably go into
one or more of them.

foodmathquilts said...

I'd have to pick cuzco too ... I have a mini charm pack of terrain, and I want to turn it into somehthing!

Oooh!Seranade gets my vote! Perfect for a beautiful nine-patch warm quilt.
Thanks for giving us all a chance to win.

Lara @ Luellabella said...

I think I would prefer Serenade because I love orange and aren't really a purple fan. I think it would be perfect to make a quilt for a baby girl and since one of my friends is expecting, I would make a quilt and cross my fingers that the bubs is a girl (she has 3 boys already)!!

Patti said...

Two great fabric lines! I would make a table runner and cushions with Serenade. Thanks for the chance to win.

Joyce Carter said...

Hi Anorina. I love the brighter colors of Cuzco and I would add it to my charm packs to make a quilt.

Pam @Threading My Way said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win!!! Love them both but my favourite would have to be Cuzco. Think I'd make a patchwork bag...

Kirsten said...

I really love the tropical colours of Cuzco - Kate Spain is such a great designer! Thanks for the chance to win!

Kirsten said...

And I would love to make a summery table runner from the charm squares.

Anonymous said...

Cuzco please! Looks so pretty, will do a tote bag with them - andri_chama(at)yahoo(dot)com

arlette said...

Both are really cute, but I'll preffer "Cuzco", I have the pattern for a difficult paper pieced table topper (can show the pattern and judge by yourself, lol) and still don't have luck with the fabric..., now I think my search is over, thank you so much for the chance :)

Jane S. said...

I've never seen a Kate Spain fabric that I didn't just love! So of course I love both these charm packs, but I think I love Cuzco a little more. :)

It's summer at my house, and I need a bright new handbag. That's what I'd make.

Thanks for the nice giveaway!

Slovenka said...

Love Cuzco. It would probably end as a table runner. Thanks for the giveaway.

Fran said...

I love all of Kate Spain's fabric ranges but Cuzco is my favourite of these two, I love the bright, vibrant colours. I'd make a throw quilt with lots of white added in. Thanks for the fab giveaway.

Crystal said...

I love Cuzco!!! I would make a lap quilt for my tween, who loves purples and blues!

hueisei said...

I love Cuzco! I will make a quilt for my mum. Thanks!

Linda Nelson said...

Cuczo is beautiful. I would use them to cover my drab and stained dining room chairs!

cllcraft said...

Serenade is my favorite! I'd make a lap quilt with these gorgeous charms!

Rhonda D. said...

I love Serenade. I would make a picnic quilt out of them. Great giveaway! Thanks for the
chance to win!

Beth said...

Oh, Serenade it is. Our niece was just visiting and I learned she loves purple. She also loves our dogs, cats, kittens, house in the country, and staying with us, which thrilled us completely. So it was decided that the lovely Jazmine needs a quilt and if I win these charms they will be made into a quilt for her. Which pattern? That's tougher. Perhaps something from Camille Roskelley's Simplify book or maybe one of those Chevron quilts that have so much verve.

Thanks for the giveaway. Kate Spain definitely deserves her own month.

Cass said...

i love the serenade pack! it's bright but still calming and happy. :) I'd love to make a home-brightening quilt and a few pillow cases with this fabric! (cass.k20 @ gmail dot com)

Ducks and Rabbits said...

I would definitely pick Serenade - saw some in person today and it's scrummy! The colours would look great on my lounge so probably I'd turn them into pillows!!

Dionysia said...

earthy is for me... i was thinking of a nice table cover for my dining table.... that is next to our lounge room.. the colours suit our new couch!!! AND some cushions..

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Oh be still my beating heart. A whole month for Kate Spain. Yeah! I love everything she does. Both lines are gorgeous but I think I'd choose Cuzco. I'd love to make some cute pillows for the couch. Maybe a tablerunner? I have a cute pattern I've been wanting to try.

Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

hennies.pennies said...

I particularly love Serenade! My granddaughter is coming to visit in August. We're planning to spend some time together creating something beautiful, probably a small quilt. This fabric would be lovely for such a wonderful occasion!! Be especially blessed, Kathy

JoyceLM said...

I'd love to win a charm pack of Serenade - it would make a great pillow for my den. Thanks for the chance to win.

Carin@Ullhärvan said...

It's very hard to choose, but I think it would be Cuzco in the end!

Mary Preston said...

Both beautiful, but I'd love to make a wall hanging for my daughter with the Cuzco.

marypres(AT)gmail(DOT)com

Lisa C said...

Both are lovely in their own ways but I think I would like the challenge of Serenade. I'm normally drawn to more of the Cuzco colors. I would make a baby quilt for our church. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lori said...

Wow this is a hard choice, but I would go with Cuzco. I would make skirts for my great neices and shirts for my great nephews

Jessica said...

Cuzco! - I would love to make another skirt from Kate Spain's fabric (you can see my first one here: http://quiltyhabit.blogspot.com/2011/08/terrain-skirt-finished.html)

Margaret said...

Cuzco and I would make a twister quilt I think. Or maybe a charming bag or a grocery bag. I love the colors.

Josie McRazie said...

They are BOTH beautiful! But I think I like Serenade best! It looks like the colours my Lillian (my youngest dayghter) gravitates to! :o)

Gwen said...

Decisions, decisions, decisions.... ;-) It really is a tough choice, because they are both so lovely... but I think I would choose Serenade! :-) Thank you for the chance to win a beautiful bunch of fabric! :-)

Gwen said...

Ooops! Got so excited with choosing a favorite, that I forgot to post what I'd make if I won! :-) I think these fabrics would make a wonderful tote!!! Thanks again!

Cheryl said...

CUZCO would be my first choice and I'd make a lap quilt for the living room.

GG said...

Thanks for the giveaway & for declaring this is Kate Spain Month! My choice would be Cuzco
I already have some Terrain Fabrics. A beautiful, smaller quilt for my grand daughter.

Faye Nettles said...

My choice would have to be Cuzco. I would make an XOXO lap quilt.

Marcia W. said...

I'm torn on which to choose. So, random coin toss says Serenade. I could make a lap sized quilt with the charms and some solids.

Karina L said...

Serenade. It's like a giant mish mash of sunset colours! Beautiful!

barbara woods said...

i like cuzco but either would be wonderful to win thanks

VickiT said...

OOh I LOVE Kate spain fabrics. Easy choice for me because while I do like them both, I just adore Cuzco. Those are just beautiful bright colors.

I am not sure if that would be used to make something for myself or if it would be used to make something for my Granddaughter, possibly a small quilt since she's only 5 months old.
Thank you so much for the chance to win.

Leonie said...

They are both lovely, but I'd choose Cuzco. I think I'd use it to make some sewing room accesssories-sewing machine cover, pincushion, and maybe a cushion for my couch.

Heather said...

I'm always drawn to the warm colors. So much so, that I've actively avoided them so that I'd branch out a bit. Well, avoid no more. Serenade is lovely. After my son leaves for college (and takes the ratty sofa with him) his sister and I are going to re-do the living room. Some lovely cushions, maybe a lamp shade cover. We'll find many ways to use it!

Courtneysews said...

I would love Cuzco. Thanks for the chance to win. I would make a cute purse with it.

Courtneysews said...

Mhairi said...

I would love to win Serenade. Although both are lovely I really like the colours in Serenade. I am not sure what I would make with it. Although, I am in need of a new bag to carry my sewing supplies in and I would like to make a hot water bottle cover so I think I might use it for those and then see what was left over.

Missy Bee said...

Hi! I'd love to win the Cuzco... I would make some lovely pillow covers to adorn my sewing area (they currently have black covers to match the sofa they sit on. If there is any fabric left, I'd make some cup wraps, so keep my drinks warm in this cold weather. Maybe I could send you one too? Love Beverley

I would love to win Cuzco! I would use it to make a Scnibble quilt or a cute throw from a postacrd pattern I just got from Villa Rosa quilts!

Deb R said...

Id love to win Cuzco, Id make your sugared almonds quilt!

Josiex said...

they are both beautiful! but I think I would have to go with serenade, it would be perfect for the top of my brown square coffee table, a project that has been waiting far too long! lol, thanks for the chance to win :)

Mary C said...

I typically would choose the colors in Serenade but the colors in Cuzco are just calling my name. I think it would be fun to do some placemats with these fun pieces. THank you for the chance to win!

Dianne Shepherd said...

I would love to win Serenade! I think it would be the perfect fabric to feature in a quilt for my niece who was born earlier this week - she looks just gorgeous in brights and her room would look fabulous decorated in bright colours too!

jackie vernon said...

Hi I would love to win Cuzco. What bright and beautiful colors to brighten any mood and any room. I would use them to make a fun table runner and placemats for my kitchen table. This is where my 3 year old grandson and I share breakfast most mornings before he goes off to preschool with his Mom. He loves placemats and we always talk about the ones on the table and he oohs and aahs over them. I think one of these would go to school with him on a Friday for show and tell! Thanks for this opportunity. Jackie and Cash

toni hill said...

Serenade, i would make a twirly skirt for my daughter with it she would love to dance around in it :)

Dee said...

Serenade, loving the hints of old world paisley hidden here and there.

Diana said...

Cuzco - bright, bold and utterly, absolutely me :)

Sue Lohr said...

Cuzco! It would be great to make a quilt for my aunt, who has macular degeneration and lives in a nursing home. It would brighten her days! I made a quilt for my niece's graduation from college using two Terrain jelly rolls, and HATED to give it away (I do have visiting rights!).

Audrey said...

Cuzco because the colours to me are bright and active. I am not sure if it would be 1 item or a collection of matching items for my home. Thank you for the chance of winning.

Helen said...

Serenade, just love the mix of greys, oranges and other early colours!! I would make a baby quilt for one of my friends (there area few) who are expecting later this year--this charm pack would really suit boys or girls--perfect!

Larabelle said...

I am a complete and utter non-sewer, but my Mum (Nanny) is a devoted sewer and patchworker and has made my daughter and five nieces the most beautiful (and priceless) quilts and patchwork dolls over the years so I'd love to bestow some Kate Spain love on her - I'm sure she wouldn't be fussy, but I'm personally lovin' the SERENADE shades and designs!

Kimmi said...

I would love to have the
Cuzco pack it is truly awesome. I would live to make some bags as I am using sewing as a treatment for my depression. I have recently gotten back into sewing and completed my forst quilting job and are always looking for more! ()

Donana said...

I would definately choose Cuzco. The warm colors are more my style. I would also make a throw for my couch. It would really POP in my living room.

Orchidia said...

Serenade.
I'd make a table runner for my coffee table. One of my walls is a pale orange and I can watch the butterflies from my coffee table.

Pat S said...

I have loved the Cuzco fabric since the first time I saw it, Probably work the fabric into a quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
