I don't use them very much, but they are handy for an emergency quick project and nice as a quilt back. Some even work nicely into totes. (on mail list)

DianeY said...

I've used cheater prints for little girls' twirly skirts. Large scale ones work great as quilt backs. I've used smaller scale ones as squares in quilts, which is probably what I would use this cute one as

Mama Bear said...

Haven't used them but as others have said, probably totes or a blanket.

Heather A said...

I've never tried a cheater print so I don't know what I'd most likely do with one. Is it unimaginative to say, "I'd make a quilt"?

Now I know what a cheater print is (I've seen them but didn't know that's what they were called!).

I would love to make a little girls dress, back of quilts, bag, anything!

Gem said...

I like to use a strip as a detail on a bag.

I've never really used cheater fabric before but think it would be great for a quick gift project (quilt, bags, etc)! This print is particularly lovely though!

Megan said...

I like them for a quick little quilt--just sandwich and machine stitch around the blocks. Sometimes I'll use the more detailed designs as a basis for some hand embroidery.
This is such a cute print--Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Peggy said...

I make tote bags to donate to charity: a senior citizen's center and a domestic violence shelter. Our group, World of Charity Stitching, also makes lap quilts, however, I don't quilt.

Thanks,

Dawn W said...

Cheater prints in my world are best cut apart and turned wonky - or for quilt backs. Somehow I think quilt backs should be just as cute as the front, and entirely surprising as well.

Lee said...

I like them for back up quick projects - gifts! thanks!
