  1. My ALL – TIME favorite fabric line is Chocolat by 3 Sisters. Who wouldn't love a little chocolate with their Chocolat? LOL

  2. Ahhh…hmmm….I would love to try this pattern out with Jubilee…from Bunny Hill design…think it would be a soft and pretty quilt…:0)) kviltstina at gmail dot com

  3. Wouldn't Va Bene from Dear stella be a fun quilt with this pattern? I could see using that to make this quilt for my mom- not quite the trip to Italy she wants, but something fun to curl up under with a good book about Tuscany!

  4. I'm loving Babylon Seven Wonders by Parson Gray for this. I keep seeing blue in all the latest home magazines so it would be perfect.

  5. Storybook Classics would be a cute choice… I had a hard time picking just one, there are so many collections that would go great with this pattern, I think!

  6. When I first saw this pattern I immediately thought of Reunion by Sweetwater. But since it is all gone, how about Noteworthy instead? The little birdies, bucket lists, and flowers would be so cute!

  7. I think Salt Water by Tula Pink might be a nice twist in this pattern. The green and coral would replace the blue and red, but it would still have a nautical/ocean theme.

  8. Art Gallery's Luxe in Bloom Fat Quarter Bundle in quartz FQ bundle would make such a pretty color combination for that!

  9. Maybe I'm inspired by the boats shown in the example, but I think that it would look great in Tula Pink's Saltwater! πŸ™‚


  10. Every time I go and look at whats new, I find a favorite right away, so many fun fabrics for kids now and i love the Cherished God Game Me You, collection, what a sweet quilt that would make.


  11. Va Bene by Dear Stella – White Italy, White Vespas, White Italian Buildings, Red Italian Buildings, White Tomatoes, Tomato Confetti Dots, White Ketchup, and Red Va Bene Stripe. Molto bene!

  12. Kissing Booth by BasicGrey would be great in this pattern – it has both darks and lights that would work and either cotton candy or creme brulee grunge would work for the sashing.

  13. I think this quilt would look awesome with Earth, Wind & Fire by
    Exclusively Quilters Fabrics. πŸ™‚

  14. I love Kate Spain fabrics as her color combinations appeal to me. Honey, Honey would work very well. Judy C in NC thanks you for this wonderful opportunity.

  15. I'd make it with Dear Stella's Va Bene prints and use her Stone Cobblestone print for the crisscross sashing so it mimics a map of Rome.

  16. I would choose Seascapes by Deb Strain for this week's Pattern Play. There are lots of fabulous collections to choose from and I like the Iris one with Audra in the title by Brannock and Patek as well. Thanks for hosting such a wonderful giveaway.
    Regards from Alberta,

  17. Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille has just the right amount of lights to darks for this geometric pattern.

  18. I would love to make this in Va Bene by Dear Stella — love this line and the flags would show off the fun prints so well!

  19. How about trying this pattern in batiks! I think the new collection,
    Purple Passion Batiks
    And then use Dancing in the Rain Batik in place of the white sashing.

  20. Lady BUg Garden by Doodlebug. I have a grand daughter (almost) 7 year old quilter on my hands! She is just loving this and we just finished her second quilt yesterday… a smaller lap quilt as we only had yesterday to make it! But it turned out great and all I did was the top FMQ'ing and the corners on the binding…she did the rest! I am so proud of her. She loves lady bugs and I'd love to have this for her the next time she stays with me for her to make! Thanks for the chance!

  21. I keep drooling over and dreaming what I could be making with the 'Me and My Sister Designs' and the specially selected 12 prints from their Ticklish collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids. $50 towards this would be super and a dream come true. email addy:

  22. I would enjoy it made from the Cloudy shade of Chateau Chambray. Thanks for the chance to win!


  23. This is such a lovely pattern….so I think everyone's choices would work so well. But… I would like to make mine with Kona Cotton Solids, Robert Kaufman Fabrics……in a rainbow effect. Thanks for the chance to win your prize.

  24. iHaus by Michelle Engel Bencsko for Cloud9 Fabrics. I'd like to start using organic cotton fabrics and these look very fun.

  25. Tough to choose, but I'm going with Ebony Ginko Stonehenge by Linda Ludovico. I love a good black and white anything and this design is gorgeous. I think it would look great in this pattern.

  26. I would love to make this quilt using the Twenty Three fabric line from Moda!!! I think the colors would work with this pattern.
