  1. I have wanted to make a Be Kind sign for my house for the kids to be reminded of kindness, so I’d make that. ❤️

  2. Hi, I would make my families initials and then turn it into a wall hanging with hearts between each: D P M G. Or maybe I would make a bunch of pillows for them and other family members. No end to the ideas at this point!

  3. Oh Tyvm for the chance to win. I would do “G” for Gigi. Even tho my name is Angela but I’m a grandma and called Gigi. I love being a Gigi, best job of all times!!

  4. I would have to make something fun for my sewing studio like “MAKE” or “SEW” or “QUILT” and then I’d make gifts for all the lovelies in my life.

  5. I would take on a bigger project than a single letter. Just heard this phrase, “Taste your words before they leave your mouth”.

  6. Either “Surprise” for a gift, “Quilt” for a friend, or another “Quilts of Valor” sign for my QOV group.

  7. Our last name is Best, and I have three sons, so I might do something like The BEST Boys Live Here.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I would make wallhangings with our names, plus ones for my cats. Because they matter in this house lol @jennifermerkley

  9. I have so many words I would like to do starting with my Granddaughter’s name to make her a pillow for her bed.

  10. I would make an “H” for heart which sumbolizes love, spiritual being, compassion and understanding.

  11. I would make a wall hanging with the words, “WELCOME HOME” to hang in the front entry of my home. That way everyone who enters feels like family. Thank you for the chance to win.

  12. LUCIDITY is what I would spell with the Typecast of Characters. I just came back from a festival with that name. I’ve attended the festival the last 6 years and it holds a special place in my heart.
