Brewer Quilting and Sewing

How could anyone resist  Brewer's
Dupioni Silk

Brewer Quilting and Sewing is one of IHAN's distributors and they have generously given this "Silk Hearts Collection" for our Anniversary Celebration. 

I love Brewer's silks and when I go to Market I make sure I go to to their Silk School House Series.   These are photos I took from Spring Quilt Market 2009.

See what I mean.....Silk is not just for the rich and famous any more.  We can all indulge in its rich and delicious texture and bask in the incredible colors Brewer offers.  I feel like a stalker at Market.  Either I'm the first in their class or I'm dashing around looking for Brewers School House on Silks. 

If you are still breathing (if you are not....I can't think of a better way to go....and if you are just hanging on by one last little breath....

...these are some tantalizing accouterments that are not in the giveaway but I thought you just had to know about.


See what I mean about still breathing?  My heart rate has gone up just looking at these photos.  I better get a lawyer and fast. (if you are from OH ...just think Elk & Elk ROFL)

Sarah Vedeler Designs work wonderfully with Brewer's Silks.  I am not responsible for what happens to you if you click on the Sarah Vedeler Designs link.  You may be blown away.....be sure you are sitting on a chair with wheels....I was....now I'm in the next room!!!  Don't miss the free download of her pattern!!!!!

All you have to do to win this incredible "Silk Hearts Collection" is leave a  comment saying what you will use the silk for if you win.   (I just want it....does not work...sorry)

For more entries, send photos of your silk projects to IWantToWinAtIHAN@yahoo.com  along with a little description of your project and a little about yourself.

Silky Smiles,
Kelly

  1. Thanks for introducing me to Sarah Vedeler Designs. Lovely designs! I'd love to win this giveaway to play with these beautiful silks. So many opportunities for beautiful things to make. I'd love to make that heart quilt, but I also think I'd like to turn all of this into a fibre-arts jacket. Would make for a spectacular party jacket!

  2. I am loving the color combo in this set. I would make a simple yet luxurious quilt that my cats would not be allow to come within 10 feet of! (Those stinkers steal every quilt and blanket we own!) I love how in your photos even a simple quilt design pops with the silk.

  3. Ooo beautiful! My first thought was~ I would make a quilt!, but now I'm thinking how rich they would look in my dining room as place mats or maybe chair back covers... :-o

  4. What would I do with Dupioni Silk if I shall win?.. Oh! First thing I would do it touch it. Feel it on my fingers and face...hmmm oh enough of that! lol .
    Let me think... I could make my little ones a cute little outfits, so they could out-shine all the other doggies!

    Or I could make many pillows for my bed, so each night I could pick a new color to have my dreams.

    Hmmm or I could make something soft out of the silk to hold in hand, so whoever received it at the nursing home, would know they were loved by someone.

    I could make a baby blanket for the baby coming to my sister's son and his wife. There's still time to make it, if I shall be the lucky one.

    The possibilities are endless if I would win, but one thing is for sure, I will share it with someone else, so they can feel as good as I do if I would Win!

  5. I make purses to sell, and I LOVE to use silk for the linings and other embelishments. It's a little slippery to work with, but I found that if I fuse a light-weight interfacing to it first, it's MUCH easier to work with! Thanks for the chance to win these gorgeous silks!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I've been collecting some small pieces of good silk lately with the idea of making a few Lazy Girl designs. Either a whole purse, or one of those smaller pieces.

    So I really NEED these silks! *silky smile*

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would use them in quiltmaking, then maybe a beautiful bag, and embellishments on some clothes, then another quilt. thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have used some of the dupioni silks in a quilt... it is SO beautiful; the colors are SO rich.

    I would love to have more of these delicious fabrics to sprinkle in more of my quilts :)

  9. Kelly: A plug for your products and service first -- outstanding. Thanks for the fast shipping on the Aurifil Collection!

    Next an entry for the silk kit drawing -- my DD asked for a special valentine hanging for her foyer. I think the Sarah Vedeler heart designs are perfect.

  10. I have been doing some snow dyeing this winter and those silks would be just the thing to add that silky zing to the crystalline patterns of the snow dyes. I would also love to just run my hands over them for a while; they would be great therapy for April showers.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm itching to make the embroidered silk quilt that is a free project on the Bernina website. These assortments of silks are unbelievably beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love her heart quilt, the close ups with the beautiful work on them is spectacular, would love to make that for my daughter.

    Debbie

  13. i would make a scrumptious art quilt with it

    ReplyDelete
  14. After mauling the fabric for a lengthy time, I would make a quilted wallhanging.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd like to try and make a silk quilt, I love the one pictured on your blog..

    ReplyDelete
  16. Art Quilts! I love to create them and oh this yummy fabric would be fabulous...silk is fabulous you are fabulous the drawings are fabulous! Jennifer

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'd use those silks to make an art quilt to hang on my wall. Thanks again for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Probably...continue to experiment with pieced clothing. My daughter is young enough (9) and brave enough (free spirit personality) to wear momma's creations and so much fun to dress. I have been experimenting with a variety of pieced and quilted clothing items and she loves to wear them. Silk would take it to a whole new level.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can see them made into clutch purses for my daughter's wedding attendants. Happy anniversary and thank you for always making us smile.

  20. Silk, how wonderful to have in my stash so when you come to sew we can make something beautiful. Would just like to feel it every now and then.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Beautiful!! If I were to win the wonderful silk collection, I would make a wall hanging for on the wall over our king size bed that is completely empty for lack of what to do. I have a pattern for a loon that would be so beautiful out of silk!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So pretty! I would use some to make an evening bag for myself . . . and . . . MAYBE a regency era children's dress for my daughter (which I've been dying to do), It'd be so colorful! I would just have to watch her like a hawk!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The fabric looks fabulous. I would make pillows, lots of beautifully embellished pillows.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Spring! Spring is what I would make with these fabulous silks. We still have two feet of snow in the yard, so the site of these vibrant colors brought my senses to attention. I'd make a lovely table runner for our living room, with a matching runner for the piano. And if there were enough, I'd be tempted to make a flowing scarf to lighten up my winter coat (we still need it for awhile longer . . .)
    Anyway, Spring is what I would make!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have never sewn with silk.....some of the things you have shown are really pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I make pattern for quilters and would love to create a new evening bag using silk combined with Texture Magic, Superior Threads' great product for creating texture on fabric. This silk would be PERFECT for that project!

  27. I would really love to win those silks, I have never used silk before, so it would be something new for me, I love your BOM using the silks, guess I could make that if I had these beauatiful silks, but I'm up for the challenge I think, the Silk Hearts Aurifil thread kit is also beautiful! I love all the colours in it too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that color combination. And who wouldn't love a quilt to snuggle up under made of such a fabulous fabric? I think those colors would be perfect for a zig-zag quilt. Gorgeous! Yes, a zig-zag quilt it is!

    ReplyDelete
  29. If I won the silk I would make a beautiful contemporary lap quilt for my couch. My living room needs some Umph! and I think the texture and color of the silk would enhance my dreary living room. So please PICK ME PICK ME!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sigh..those would be perfect for doing a Jenny Haskins machine embroidered quilt. I have one that I'm working on, "Aquamarine Ambience" and have another pattern I'd love to start.

    I did check out her site and the heart quilt is beautiful. I saw her demonstrate her technique on PBS a couple of weeks ago.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh. My. Goodness. I would so use this silk to make a special quilt...just. for. me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I saw a beautiful Amish bars miniature quilt made out of silk. I've always wanted to make something similar and these would be a perfect start to that project.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love to make beach scene quilts, and can't think of anything better than these to make a sunset beach quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh Kelly, these colors are beautiful!! I think I would make some lovely quilted purses. The colors look so rich and would be so pretty all together. Yes, I do think I would make a purse for me for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have been drooling over these silks for quite some time. I definitely wouldn't use them to wipe my chin but probably would do some machine embroidery on them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the sheen and rich color of silk. I have a few pieces of this already and if I won, I'd have enough for a great wall quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These look yummy! I'm not exactly sure what I would make with this beautiful fabric but I would be selfish and keep it for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to make a beautiful dress for my little niece!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Kelly,
    Silk and thread. You could make a girl weep! Put my name on them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! This a gorgeous Giveaway! Right off I think I would
    make 2 lovely sofa pillows! Then again wouldn't an all
    silk quilt to so pretty! Imagine it on one's bed!

  41. I think I would make a silk wall hanging for my daughter's room. Those colors would fit in perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love silk!!!
    Did you know it is one of the warmest fabrics and works well as a bottom layer in the winter, while camping or while hiking?
    I had silk long underwear on my Christmas list, but alas, I didn't get any. And I live in a VERY cold state so it would have come in handy.
    SO I think if I won the silk I would make a camisole, for sure. I'd give some scraps to my daughter in law who is learning to crazy quilt and I'd probably incorporate some in a garment for my 5 yr old. Or maybe I would make a pillow case so I could have silken dreams. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. golly, I'm not sure what I would make with SILK...
    it would be gorgeous, though, made with such lovely fabric...

    ReplyDelete
  44. I haven't sewn with silks (yet) but I would use these (If I won) fro some cathedral window pillows.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would actually have to USE IT? Couldn't I just name it, love it and keep it forever. It's too beautiful to cut, but I would love to try.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have had no experience sewing with this fabric....I'm not too old to try though.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would certainly make a quilt. I have made enough for other people--I need one now and oh baby would silk be sa-weet!♥

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would use some to dress my dolls and then I would use some to make myself a gorgeous needle case and then I would use some in wall quilts and then... I think I may have used it all my now...

  49. you warned me and yet I clicked! Lordy I might have a new passion! I am actually making quilts for sick kids at Childrens Hospital, Seattle through a guild (you can read about the guild here: http://katiescomfortersguild.blogspot.com/ ) mostly with donated and won fabrics. I don't know for certain but I can only imagine some of the kids have sensitive skin and silk (which yes I'll admit I would want for myself) might be a great option for them. And a few of those patterns would be PERFECT to bring joy and brightness into a hospital room

    ReplyDelete
  50. If I win the Dupioni silk I'm going to make a wall hanging that's as beautiful as Sarah Vedeler's hearts. It won't be exactly like hers though - I'll think of something to make it unique. If there's any silk left over after that I'm going to make myself a small bag. I need a new bag. The silk is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Well if I was lucky enough to win those lovely silks, I would have to make something fancy and special. Would be a beautiful a shawl or scarf, with lots of silk threads to applique some decorative stitching.Definetly something to dream about! Thanks for giving us the chance! Sharonj.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those silks are so beautiful. I think they would look great in a patchwork jacket and I do need a new jacket! Thanks for counting me in.

    ReplyDelete
  53. OMG I have never seen anything like it. I would love to have a go a sewing a quilt out of the silk, I don't have a quilt for me yet and it would be so luxurious.

    ReplyDelete
  54. A quilt! Those colors are so rich, I would love to make something that someone could wrap themselves up in :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. OH! How gorgeous! I would use the silk for my embroidery. Currently I just sew on Muslin, because I am too scared to try anything new. Even if I don't win, I think I am going to have to try out silk, it is so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am new to Crazy Quilting and have been learning through some great yahoo groups. How to Crazy Quilt. These silks would be a dream to own ande use in my CQ. Theyb are the most beautiful silks and threasds I haqve seen.

  57. Oh how GORGEOUS! I would make stripey rainbow skirts for my two daughters-- They LOVE fancy fabric. Smart girls ;) And when they outgrow the skirts, I'd turn them into fancy bags for ME!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've never used silk in a quilt before, but I'd love to give it a try. If I had this silk, I would make my Grandmother a new quilt for her 95th birthday which is coming up this year!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think that I would make a beautiful wall-hanging for my very empty front room in my house. Something that's very colorful but also very classy :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would pair it with my treasured collection of kimono fabrics and finally make a quilt that I keep for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Those threads are colorful like skittles!

    My LQS has the dupioni silks and they are so lovely, but so expensive. I've never purchased them because I'd be afraid to cut them. They'd make a wonderful quilt, but if I won this giveaway, I'd probably give it to my sister because she's ALWAYS FOREVER drooling over these silks.

    That gives me a good bday gift idea for her...

    ReplyDelete
  62. Gorgeous fabric!!! I would make a quilt with this lucious fabric. Looks just yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I would love to make a quilt with these beautiful silks, but I would have to reserve a few to make a little evening clutch bag too - the colours are so rich!

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would love to be able to use this collection to make myself a luxurious "just for me" quilt. No hubby and no kitties, just me!

    Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Lovely, dreamy fabric! I've not worked with silk, and would love to. Perhaps a special quilt, or something detailed and special to hang on the wall. Wow!

    mybusyhands@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  66. I've been collecting silks to make a wallhanging art quilt but it's taking some time to find the right silks as well as they are expensive so I just can't go out and buy everything at once. This collection that you are offering Kelly is amazing and would do wonders in getting me closer to starting my quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm a 'newbie'to sewing. I actually have only been doing things around the house for the past 8 months. I would love to make my little one (she's 4 and only 23 lbs!) a few cute dresses!
    You can reach me at shelly.potter@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  68. If I won the silks I would use them to cherish and feel the luxury first. Next I would ask the VP of East Coast Operations for her suggestions on how I could best use them. I could be hooked for life.

  70. My mother has been wanting to make a crazy quilt for years and saving fabrics for it. She does not have any silk. We saw a 100% silk crazy quilt and spoke with the maker/owner at a recent local quilt walk. My mother really really wants to make one now...but no silk and house repairs need to be made. She would be so very excited if I won this for her.

  72. I would love to have a new quilt for my bed in silk! I love sleeping at my mom's with the silk/down comforter that was my great aunts! There is just nothing like the feel of silk.

  74. Hi and greetings from Western Australia. I have made several of my daughters bridesmaid dresses in this beautiful silk and I have always dreamed of making a quilt with the same material. I have some scraps put away and so I would add these to them and make a quilt for my guest room. Thanks for making this possible. Sam (Sandra)

  76. I think I'm breathing now ... what beautiful silks! I would love to experiment with them in bags - as linings, or trim, or embellishments. I also make small dolls and this would be great for their clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love these silks and would like to use some in a touchy feelie quilt. Also, for some comforting taggies. I have any idea for a draw string bag with lots of decorative sitiching, also. So many ideas.

  78. I am playing with CQing...crazy quilting. These would be great for that.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I think such beautiful fabrics will be best used for a wall hanging - i would hesitate between a folded flowers variations and English paper piecing with pentagons, hexies and diamonds.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Crazy quilt heaven!! Silk fabric, designs and threads. I once made a quilt (Bernina Latte quilt) with Dupioni silks and cream satin, that is one that is NOT being given away! Love silk!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Oohhh those silks are sooo dreamy!! First thing I'd do is make myself a scarf, so I could be wrapped in that dreamy softness... no, first I'd roll around in all of them, THEN I'd make myself a scarf :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. What awesome designs, thank you. I would make a quilt for my DH who puts up with all of my crafts and doesn't complain. pamspinks.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  83. Oh my gosh! What gorgeous fabrics and colors. I am a crazy quilter and these would most definately be put into a crazy quilt. The colorway is gorgeous and would be so inspiring to stitch on. I would definately love to win this collection of silks.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh my gosh what gorgeous silk fabric! I would definitely love to win these. what would I do with them: As I am a crazy quilter they would most definately become a crazy quilt. They would inspire aswesome seam treatments.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh! These are so beautiful!! I've never worked with this before, I would totally make a luxurious lap quilt for myself! (Greedy, I know) Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'd like to make bags. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  87. What a fabulous give a way. I would like to use some to embellish a jacket with a beautiful landscape on the back of the jacket. And then a small messenger bag to wear with it.

    ReplyDelete
  88. ooohhh .. I would totally use these to put a border on the baby quilt I am making right now ...

    ReplyDelete
  89. I have always admired the quilted jackets made with silk fabrics that I see gals wearing at quilt shows...and always wanted to have one to wear. This would be a good way to work on one, wouldn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Oh, these silks in jewel tones (my favorites) are fabulous!!! I am going to be doing some redecorating (all right, it's really just "decorating"), and it would be fun to put together some sumptious pillows.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh my, these silks, with their lustrous colors and textures, really take quilts to another level, don't they?! If I had them in my hands, I'd first just enjoy touching them for a while! Then, I'd make them into a quilt for my mom's 75th birthday next year. I'd make a pictorial quilt, depicting one of the places she loved best in her work as a geologist; the Grand Canyon. Can't you just imagine it?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Oh, I love the colors! If I was to be the lucky winner of these, I think I would make a wall hanging with them so everyone would be able to see and admire these gorgeous silks!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I haven't used silk yet, but I'd definately use all those babies up...they look so pretty that I'd have to take a pic first so I had a memory of what they looked like! Hugs Naomi

    ReplyDelete
  94. OMG! First, I'd unfold them all and just spread them out and stare at them for a few hours! I'd probably incorporate them into something that would hang where I'd see it every day -- those fabrics are GORGEOUS!

    P.S. my word verification happens to be my grandmother's maiden name -- so I'm taking that as a sign of good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Who doesn't LOVE some silk?? I would adore making some summer dresses for my girls with this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Silk is one of my favourite fabrics, and seeing I want to get into doing some textile art projects, they would make the perfect background for some of those. I'm also planning on making some origami cranes in silk and embellishing them, so these may be the perfect fabric for them also.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I would love to have the silk to make a jacket and handbag. I would like to try some of the techniques for textured fabric in Colette Wolfe's book, The Art of Manipulating Fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

    ReplyDelete
  98. This is so gorgeous...I would love to make something out of silk. It would have to be a simple quilt to showcase the fabrics. This is one fabric I haven't tried but really want to.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Such yummy colors! I just took a class on hand applique and was told to use silk thread. I would love to win this so that I could give hand applique a try. I would coordinate my fabric choices with these threads.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I need a runner for my mantle, and these would be beautiful and perfect. I also like to add a little to a quilt for texture here and there.

    ReplyDelete
  101. First thing I thought of was a beautiful jacket. Wouldn't that be scrumpcious? But I love the heart quilt as well. Oh, decisions, decisions! Thanks for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  102. The silk is beautiful. I would use it to make some special bags for me and my daughter. I would make a nice throw pillow for my bed. I would probably use some in a crazy quilt block or two - maybe for a special quilt for my entrance way. I liked the idea I read in the comments of a silk runner for a mantle - I would love to see one across the top of my piano with triangles hanging down across the front. Beautiful. Congrats to the lucky winner - and may it be me!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I'd use these lovely silks in a crazy quilt. They would make a lovely backdrop for my hand embroidery!

  104. They are just wonderful. I would use these to make a very simple quilt so that it shows off the beauty of the material. Thanks for making this possible. Sam (Sandra) s.downes@murdoch.edu.au

  107. beautiful silks and threads..

    ReplyDelete
  108. If I win the silks I will just have to enjoy rubbing the fabric between my fingers, look out I may start sucking my thumb like my daughter used to do when she would rub her baby blanket silky binding.

    ReplyDelete
  109. OMGoodness these colours are sooo rich! I would love love love to make a quilt using reverse applique revealing the silk patterns underneath, It is a quilt that I know I need to make one day, and wow, I can almost taste it, now! I feel like I have struck gold finding out about you, Kelly!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Miniatures, miniatures, miniatures! Think it would be wonderful to use for the small miniature quilts I make.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I think I would have to make some fabulous throw pillows. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I've only recently started learning how to handle silk in my art quilts but I only have some small scraps, very small, so this stash would be fantastic. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Wow I would really love to make some purses with silk, thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Those silks are gorgeous. Anyone who has seen quality dupioni silk IRL would be amazed at the sheen and depth it has. I would probably just fondle the silks for awhile then make a simple quilt in a rectangles/squares design to show off the beautiful texture. Pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I have not worked with silk before and would love to try it. The colours are wonderful and the work you have shown inspiring! Of course I also 'want it' (not just want it.. really want it lol!) Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I see all those lovely colors and I think of a Victorian-era fan quilt - maybe some velvet and embroidery embellishment as well? Oh, yum.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Those colors are wonderful, better than ice cream or candy (maybe not kit kats but they're chocolate). I would love to play with top stitching with those. I'm currently crocheting butterflies and would like to do machine stitching on their wings.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I've been collecting dupioni silks for years, especially those woven with different warp and weft colors. I love the way they shift colors. My dream is to someday make myself a silk quilt for my bed, and these would go right into the stash for that project. Don't know how much I have for sure (just bought quarter yards, mostly in England more than a dozen years ago). I've drooled over these silks on their web site many times, but am just feeling too poor to buy (I keep telling myself my birthday is coming up in July!).

    B.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I would use the silk to make an art quilt. I also want to make a few scarves at some point, so these might work for that, too. I'm so new at sewing REAL silk, it will just be fun to play with rich fabric I didn't deconstruct from clothes I get at the second hand store.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've not experienced much about silks since I quilt with cottons mostly, but I have heard about silk thread just melting into applique to be invisible and that it's strength is superb. I would love to use that tray of colored silk in applique projects and maybe a satin stitch around hearts for a new grandbaby quilt would be in order....lovely luscious colors!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I would use the silk dupioni for my machine felting.
