Northcote Range by Cabbage and Roses for Moda - Fabric Giveaway

The people at Cabbage and Roses, an English fashion and housewares company, asked me if I would want to partner with them to do a giveaway of some fabric from their new quilting line Northcote Range for Moda. The collection is full of vintage florals in a soft palette with some stripes and solids, too. Who doesn't like pretty fabric? Right. I jumped at the chance.


They sent me a yard of this green and cream floral and a fat quarter of a small red print. The colors reminded me of Christmas and with the holidays fast approaching, I thought it might be fun to make a stocking. I've had this idea percolating for awhile now and it was great to see it come together like I had it in my head.


I added the green velvet ribbon from my stash to tie it all together. I'm pretty pleased with the end result and it was a quick, satisying project. I might just have to make a few more!

Now it's your turn...Cabbage and Roses are offering a bundle of fabrics (1 yard of a green floral, 1 yard of a matching green solid & 1 quarter yard of a green stripe) to one of my readers. Tell me what you would do with the fabrics if you win. I'll keep the comments open until Sunday, November 20th at 5:00 p.m. EST. I'll announce the winner next week.

You can learn more about Cabbage and Roses through their website, blog, facebook and twitter.

Enjoy the weekend.



I'd make a cushion with a nod to Christmas but something I could have out all year round.


What a great giveaway. I would make some bags to parcel gifts in.


I see that fabric and I think of my mother-in-law. I think I'd make something for her. Perhaps a small lap blanket.


I would makea a little baby girl's Christmas dress. The whites would pop against all of the darker colors of the season.


I would make a sweet little apron!


If I stay true to my latest obsession, I have to admit I'll probably make another dirndl for one of my daughters. I think I'd probably have to buy some of the red you used too (love it!).

Love your stocking-- it would look great on my "mantle" (don't really have a mantle, so we hang our stocking from the top of an antique book case that I inherited from my grandparents)! I have been thinking that I should make new stockings for our house-- just love to update my decorating every now and then.. There should be enough fabric to make stockings AND a tree skirt, I think-- especially if I add some of that beautiful red that you used! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!!!! :-)


I'd probably make a table runner for the dining room. What a great giveaway!


wouldnt it makea great bunting forthe mantel? maybe on red binding? or neutral binding so it could stay up year round?
your stocking is darling


I've just acquired a serger, so I think I would make an assortment of napkins to use over the Christmas holidays.


I love the stocking! I would use the fabric to make some holiday outfits for my daughter's dolls.


I'd make placemats or a table runner. Thanks!


I'd make some a table runner for my buffet. My buffet is visible as you enter my front door and I use it as sort of a holiday display. For Halloween I used a black runner with pumpkins embroidered on it and then put my decorations on it. This would make a beautiful runner for my mahogony colored buffet!


Beautiful, beautiful stocking. I need to make one for my new grandchild!


My first thought was making a girlie robot softie, because some people like both robots and flowers. Then I thought how much my son's girlfriend loves floral prints, but not robots, so maybe I could make a bag for her.

Carol H.

I would make a skirt for a little girl.


My plan this year is to forgo (forgoe?) all disposable wrapping, this fabric would look lovely as gift bags.


I think I'd turn them into a Christmas tree skirt.


I would make a doorstop for my daughters room


i would make my two year old a dress with some matching pants! maybe add a sash or red to it all. : )


I've recently completed my first quilt and my second quilt is a project that I'm keen to get started on, luckily my colours are green and red, so this fabric stash would complement it nicely!


I need a cute table runner for Christmas!


I'd make stockings! Do you have a pattern for yours. It is gorgeous!

Alicia A.

Oooo... maybe a little runner for the dining table.


Ooh ooh ooh, I have been dying to make my own pillowcases to go with my favorite bedspread. I love it, but my plain pillowcases always look so boring with it. I actually saw these fabrics before I knew you were hosting the giveaway and immediately thought "Pillowcases!!" I hope it's me! :)

Leslie R.

Why, I would turn it into a vintage/retro apron!


Make a wall hanging for my niece's room


I would let my boys use them to sew teacher gifts--either reusable totes, aprons or napkins. Or...a tree skirt for our Christmas tree.

Cathy B

I'm making lap robes for the residents of my mother's nursing home. Green would be perfect for the holidays!


I want to make a Christmas Tree Skirt - these would be great!

Suzy McQ

Such beautiful fabric. I think I'd whip up some holiday themed placemats and napkins for a beautiful table!


I woudl use them as a gift for my daughter who turns 11 Dec 1st - she informed me that she wants a "creative design corner" for her room - "complete with a sewing machine, please"? She has already designed a couple bags fro her friends for birthdays and such. I woudl love to see what she would dowith this!


I want to copy you and do stockings. That ruffle is to die for and I love the the essence of that fabric line!


Oh, that green floral is so beautiful. I'm not sure what I'd be able to come up with. I have many quilt patterns/projects floating around in my head that need some inspiration...this could do the trick!


What a fun giveaway! Green is definitely my favorite color so it might be tough to pick just one project to do from it. Probably a pillow would win out, since I feel extra into making pillows lately.


I've just started quilting in the last year, so I would use the fabrics to make a throw-sized quilt. Napkins would be nice, too, though. Choosing what to do would be fun!


Maybe a table runner or some pillows. Love the fabric it´s so british!!!!!


I would make a Christmas tree skirt.


I would make a picnic quilt for next summer!
Great fabrics


I'd like to make a table runner or placemats for the holidays.


Hmm..a bag :)


Ooooh! A Christmas outfit for my sister's new baby!

Jacqueline Jones-Blacker

I have no idea--- however, I would love it if you wrote up that stocking tutorial, so adorable!


Table topper for me!

Lexi Lucas

A cushion would be nice. I have recently seen a nice pattern with ruffles that would be adorable. [email protected]


A fun and flirty apron would be great in these fabrics! Thanks for the chance to win!


I think I would add in a soft pink and make a baby girl quilt ... it's a very pretty line. Thank you for the giveaway!

Lindsey Z.

Make-Up bags for my sisters for birthdays in 2012.

Lisa Clarke

Greens are so hard to resist :-) I would probably make a reversible apron. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!


It would have to be pillows for my son and future daughter-in-law's bed (being married January 1!) to go with the plain white comforter they've chosen.
