  1. I would also use a white background paired with the new Hipster Pop prints… or the Crimped fabrics would also be great with the wavy lines radiating out from the center!! So many great possibilities!

  2. I would love to see it in some solids like maybe the slate rock Kona bundle or the Grecian Waters. That would be lovely.

  3. I think this would look really pretty in Christmas Countdown by Deb Strain. What a gorgeous Christmas quilt it would make.

  4. I would use Bake Shop together with other fabrics designed by Lori Holt plus white as the background – great pattern!

  5. I love this pattern – I have had it on my wish list for a long time! I think I would use Simply Color by V and Co – bright rainbow colours with a dark grey background.

  6. I think
    God Gave Me You by Leanne Anderson for Henry Glass Fabrics would be great in this pattern, then give it to the star in your life.

  7. I would use Simply Color by V and Co. The colors of this line would really pop with this pattern.


  8. I just had to comment. I. Love. That. Quilt. Pattern!

    I can't participate in pattern play though — uses up too much bandwidth and we only have a limited amount per month. 🙁 I am anxiously awaiting the day that we can change our situation! Hopefully within a year because I sorely miss participating in these challenges. 🙂

  9. LOVE this quilt!! Would try Indigo Crossing, ofr Mary Jane Butters Glamping (& make for my daughter!!)… 🙂

  10. I think the best fabrics to use for Sparkle Plenty are my favorite fabric collection – Fairy Frost from Michael Miller!
    Some of them are really frosted and glisten and sparkle.

  11. I think Blushing by Margot Languedoc of The Pattern Basket for Henry Glass Fabrics would be gre3at.

  12. I would love to see this made up in Jubilee by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda – with a white background very light and airy

  13. "Sweet Land of Liberty" by Color Principle for Henry Glass Fabrics would be perfect for this Sparkle Plenty quilt!

  14. Thanks for the chance! I would use Kaffe Fasset Collective blues for the main prints and a bright white solid or semisolid for the background.

    Happy stitching!

  15. I think I'd try using Art Gallery's Nature Elements for this, not my usual risk but I think it might work! thank you for the giveaway!

  16. I would love to see that pattern in Over The Rainbow Batiks-particularly the Sunrise colors. I think that would just be gorgeous with the black fabric "star" outline. Thanks for letting us try!

  17. I think Kaffe Fassett fabric would be lovely against a black background, maybe the Happy Kaffe Fassett Collective Fat Quarter Bundle.

  18. I love the Sparkle Plenty pattern! I think it would be cute in the new Hipster fabric by Riley Blake.

  19. I'd love to make this with Lapis Hipster by The RBD Designers for Riley Blake Designs! 🙂

  20. I think this would be super cute in Glamping by Mary Jane Butters for Moda Fabrics with the Dark Chocolate Polka Dance as the dark

  21. I'm thinking something bright and cheery like Ticklish from Me & My Sister Designs with maybe a dark blue background.

  22. I'm over the top for dots and love it just as it is so I would pick a great combination of dots from various makers. Great pattern, stars are my favorite. lindaw1010(at)hotmail(dot)com.

  23. I love that pattern, and since I've been on a batik kick lately I'd love to do it in Over the Rainbow by Laundry Basket Quilts. Wouldn't that be awesome?

  24. I would use Ticklish in the 2 1/2" candies along with yardage of white with red polka dots…to make a doll quilt for my beautiful baby grandaughter.

  25. I would love to see this done in a shabby chic kinda way so would pick Mill Brook Series Circa 1835 for it.

  26. I'd use Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille. It would look great in those bright colors!

  27. Stars always say "Christmas!" to me, and I think this would be simply stunning with Love & Joy by
    Dena Designs for Free Spirit Fabrics.

  28. I think the sparkler pattern would look great in Kona Charcoal and Rain by Timeless Treasures! Thanks for the chance to win! mom2ryandsis(at)yahoo(dot)com

  29. Would love to use this pattern with Trifles Frippery by Thomas Knauer for Andover Fabrics. Beautiful fabric line and an awesome pattern to showcase it.

  30. What a hard decision, as I love stars!
    I would use Cuzco with the purple geo as background (or a dark purple Bella solid), or I would use Pieces of Hope by Riley Blake with a Riley Blake tone-on-tone dot for background.

  31. I think this pattern would look fabulous and similar in "Rain" by Timeless Treasures.


  32. I would love to see this quilt done in Black & White so I would use Faye Burgos' Jet Setter bundle.

  33. Michael Miller's Mirror Ball Dots. When I saw this pattern, his collection immediately popped into my head. I bought it at the Modern Quilt Show in Austin without a pattern in mind. Now I know what to do with it!

  34. I didn't go far to find my fabric. I would use Laura Gunn's Edges for the quilt.
