  1. I think I'd use Gray Matters by Jacqueline Savage McFee for Camelot Cottons. I would use the yellows for the lighter blocks and the grays for the darker blocks. I think it would be a softer look but still fun.

  2. There's so many beautiful lines to choose from. I don't know, but I think I'm leaning towards Cool Peace Carnaby Street or Golden Spirit Bijoux.

  3. I think a combination of Laura Gunn's edges would look great with this pattern – like a dark/light combo of teal, a dark/light combo of yellowis green, and use the platinum tonal mosaic in place of the white in the pattern. Thanks for a chance to win!

  4. I would definitely use fabrics from the Stonhenge crayon box line, I just finished up a quilt using this line (and the stonhenge white as a background) and it is stunning, such wonderful colors!

  5. With a name like "Edgy", it has to be Laura Gunn's Edges. And there are plenty of light/dark color selections to choose from in that collection.

  6. I think Oval Elements by Patricia Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics would look pretty cool with the straight lines of this pattern. Thanks for the chance to win! Love FQS!

  7. I think using a few contrasting prints from the Happy Go Lucky line by
    Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics would be nice.

  8. I would love to keep this towards the solids too, so I would pick Citrus Moda Marbles. I love the bright colors!!

  9. Lovely pattern and I'm a fan of the Batiks so I'd have to agree with you that the Mint Julep Batiks would make this quilt pop. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. I was leaning toward Sketch by Timeless Treasures, but I think I'd go with Tonga Joy instead for a bright yet serene Christmas look.

  11. I know the pattern says "Sew Solid", but I think it would look great using a combo of Westminster Fabric's "First Impressions" and "Initial Impressions" collections!

  12. I think I have to say Sketch by Timeless Treasures – I think that would be fun, and I couldn't mess it up too much! 😉

  13. I'd definitely pick 2 from the Azure Edges and 2 from the Saffron Edges collections (by Laura Gunn for Michael Miler. How edgier could you get?

  14. Maybe Ombre Dots by Riley Blake? The contrast of dots and edgy lines would look really interesting.

  15. I love the Small Cotton Dots by Riley and think they would be lovely in this quilt.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Stonehenge with a mix of these bundles:
    Indigo Aphrodite Stonehenge
    Sangria Gold Leaf
    Raven Aphrodite

  17. I'd love to see the white areas in the Hipster Pop by Riley Blake and then the colored portions of the block in RB solids.

  18. I really love the purple and aqua color scheme of the photo quilt on the pattern, so I would stick with those colors. And since I love Riley Blake, I would choose purples and aqua from some of their many lines, like the tone-on-tone dots and stars, and Hipster, and Shuffle.

  19. I would like to see the Chambray Rose collection. Just for something different.

  20. I love the bright colors against the blacks in Sweet Things Yardage
    Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods… BEAUTIFUL!! (editing to add email: stampmeup{at}hotmail{dot}com)

  21. Nature Elements by Pat bravo would be beautiful…the colors are luscious and the pattern is simple but would soften the sharp edges (just a little!) of the quilt design.


  22. I think that Over the Rainbow Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda Fabrics with a black background would be beautiful.


  23. I think Michael Miller's Fairy Frost range in pinks and peaches, maybe coupled with Kaufman' s sateen in ivory would make a great girly "disco" quilt! I am obsessed with Fairy Frost at the moment!

  24. Kona Cotton – ash and charcoal and then two shades of yellow – with a red background would pop with this design! Thanks for putting my name in the drawing!

  25. The solids really work with this design, but if you wanted to change it up I think Moda Marbles would be great. I like the Citrus Moda Marbles group and would use the two shades of aqua and the two shades of lime. I would use Kona Ash for the background.

  26. This could be an interesting Christmas quilt using Moda solids in reds and greens but I think it would look,pretty using the Hoffman 1895 Bali Taffy batiks…maybe Seaglass for the background, pesto and lime where the aqua is and snake and fern where the purple is.

  27. I've just found a new collection I would love to see used for this pattern, Matilda by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures Fabrics.

  28. I think solids would represent the pattern best and retain its crispness! I would be using Pure Organic Solid Navy and Kona Corn:D

  29. I'd like to do this with solids that add a little more "texture" so I'd use Michael Miller's Painter's Canvas in blues and oranges.
