It would be fab as a bag or purse, but for patchwork & quilting projects I’m really into to curved piecing at the moment and I think these fabrics would look stunning in a curvy quilt!  Take a look at my pinterest boards to get some inspiration – Drunkards Path Quilts and General Quilting Inspiration.

If you love rainbow quilts then something simple and bold like this quilt using half square triangles would really let the fabric shine:

I also really love the simplicity of this one:

Or maybe go with the warm pinks and oranges using a classic drunkarks path block like this:

Or you could flex your foundation paper piecing (FPP) muscles and tackle this stunning Conkers Quilt by Jo Avery:

Makower UK is typically considered a quilting cotton manufacturer, however, as a dressmaker, when I was processing these fabrics they really jumped out at me as great options for lovely bright summer clothes.  While quilting cotton doesn’t lend itself to all types of dressmaking project (you want to avoid any patterns that need a nice drapey or lightweight fabric), it is fantastic for fit and flare style dresses, tunics, skirts and kids clothes.  Because it is slightly more weighty I find it works really well for our UK summers and that you don’t need to line them.
