    At last... here are pictures of the Gone with the Wind fabrics. The collection is supposed to be available in January 2010. At this point, the manufacturer (Quilting Treasures) is in the process of collecting orders from quilt shops.

    And as usual, I don't know which ones to choose. Please chime in with your comments as to which ones you like best!

    They're all nice but I've never used fabric with people on them. What would you do? I do love all the other ones-the colors are beautiful and can think of many projects they'd fit into. (I guess I missed the point that these are GWTW fabrics and that's why they have people on them-duh!)

    Between you and me... I really don't know WHAT folks would do with these. Isn't that terrible? I'm thinking that it's like the Wizard of Oz line... you just collect them. I suspect, though I'm not sure yet, that they will be releasing other GWTW collections if this one sells. And, if it's like Oz, it's best to wait until ALL the collections are out so you can get some of every design.

    Which reminds me... I should post pictures of the new OZ ones too.

    These pictures are "sneak previews" and the fabrics are not going to be available until January. They are yet to be printed.

    We've been hearing rumors of a GWTW collection for well over a year now. We though that the line would be ready in 2009, as it's the 70th anniversary of the movie. But... looks like they're running a little late for that.

    You have to have the one with Scarlett in her ball gown. It's great.

    I can't wait for them to come out. I would buy all except the flowers. My girl friend loves gone with the wind and I would make her a quilt for her Scarlett room. Naturally my most favorites are the ones with the pictures, I like the one that says gone with the wind on it and the brocade ones, the stripes are ok.

    I' m not crazy about the brocades but really like all the others. Stripes aren't something I generally use but might consider them once I see the fabrics in person.

    When I was a little girl, this would be about 1950, a friend had a GWTW comforter, or blanket, or something. I wanted it so much! Over the years I've searched eBay and some antique linens vendors; nobody knows what I'm talking about. I even tried tracking it down when I worked at MGM in the '70's. Has anybody seen such a thing?

    I love them all! It's my favorite movie, I can watch it time and again.

    Let me know if you will carry them in your shop, I feel a purchase coming on (unlike tha vapours as the women used to get).

    Oh, those are wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Will this be like Oz and have new releases every year or every few months?

    I have a bunch of the Oz and am thinking of making a tote with some of it. Then fussy cutting some of the panels to make a throw.

    I used a ton of the wizard of oz fabric to make scrub hats. I gave our surgery manager one with the Glenda the Goodwitch and The wicked witch of the west on another one. She is required to wear them so we know what kind of mood she's in :):)
    As for the Gone with the Wind fabric, the obvious answer to you is "Frankly, Scarlet, I don't give a da**. hahahhaah.
    I will probably get some of this for scrub hats too. The only ones I wouldn't pick would be the striped ones. Hmm... could it be that some days I just don't sew straight?

    I developed my love for GWTW because my Mom is crazy about it! You can't imagine how thrilled she would be to have something made from these fabrics. What an inspiration!

    That being said, I'm not crazy about the stripes but they barely beat out any of the flowering prints. It's a shame (at least to me) I'd go for the logo/pic print in either color if it didn't have the flower on it.

    Do you know in general how soon a second collection gets released after the first?

    I mentioned in the Monopoly thread I wasn't into the Oz or Lucy prints but I'd totally buy this for my Mom (and maybe a throw size for me if it turns out well. Honestly too, I'd be more inclined to search for other fabric that coordinates instead of using all the prints of this line.)

    I have already posted that I like
    Scarlett in her ball gown dress,
    for a quilt. Now I think I would like
    to add the cream & brown stripe
    along with the dark green brocade.
    I can just picture it together!!
    :D :D :D :D :D :D
