  1. This pattern is versatile it could be pretty in all your lines but I think it would be scrumptious in Indian Summer or the Lario line. Jane

  2. LOVE the pattern ~ I think it would be gorgeous in Avalon! Thanks so much for the chance to win ~ fingers crossed ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My first thought was to do this one in all solids. Maybe this bundle:
    Berry Kona Cotton Solids Fat Quarter Bundle
    SKU# FQ-557-11

  4. I would love this is Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts. I adore florals and this collection is perfect for this pattern with all the pinks and blues.

  5. Get a Clue with Nancy Drew from Moda would be great in this pattern as its criss-cross pattern allows the look of a detective moving from room to room looking for clues. My sister read all the Nancy Drew books and would love these fabrics.

  6. I think Out To Sea by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics would be nifty, especially if you used fussy cut squares from the My Favourite Ship fabric in that line.

  7. I'd use Happy Go Lucky. It has lots of contrast as well as some small to medium scale prints for all those little pieces.


  8. Noteworthy by Sweetwater for Moda. It has a lot cute prints, perfect for a baby quilt!

  9. Hum…… I think a 30s reproduction fabric collection would be perfect since this pattern has ann old-fashioned, homey feeling about it.

  10. I'd love to see it done for summer in
    Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille.

  11. So many collections would work wonderfully with this pattern! I think the soft brights of "Noteworthy" by Sweetwater would make a nice choice ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. 'Matilda' by Alice Kenndy for Timeless Treasures would be great. There's enough difference in value and I love the colors and prints!

  13. since it seems to have picture squares I picked "Redwork Lazy Daisy Baskets" This is very pretty fabric and I think this pattern would look very sophisticated in red and white! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I'm in love with Cosmos right now. I'm not sure how it would work with this pattern, but it would be fun to try. Avalon would be my second choice. Two completely different options, I know!

  15. Esprit de Noel would be beautiful in this pattern – I may just have to make it now that you've got me thinking about it!

  16. I like A Year to Crow About for Red Rooster. It's got the cutest panel that you can cut apart for the center blocks– quite a cute showcase for a novelty print!

  17. What could be Ritzier than black, white and gold? I'd choose Aster by
    Williamsburg for Windham Fabrics. Classy with good tonal contrast. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Just love So Happy Together. Love the colors and the house print. But then I would probably have a new favorite tomorrow. So many great fabrics.

  19. I think Wishing Life is Beautiful by
    Helen Stubbings for Red Rooster Fabrics would look darling in this pattern.

  20. I think happy go lucky by Bonnie and Camille would be perfect; lots of contrast and some great low volume prints!

  21. This pattern is so charming and would look fresh & fun if done with the Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. This fabric combines colour and pattern that is timeless.

  22. Night at the Ritz would look great made up in the Enchanted Pond Fabric. The rich deep purples & magentas along the greens & honeys would look magnificent!

  23. I LOVE the Sarah Jane fabrics … I've bought all her embroidery patterns. My fabric choice would be So Happy Together. Thank you for the chance to win a gift certificate!

  24. I'd love to see that pattern in Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. It's such a fun & joyful line of fabrics.

  25. I think I'd use Shelburne Falls too, itd be great with this pattern! Thank you for the giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Remember by Carina Gardner for Riley Blake Designs,with gray, pink, mustard, red and aqua..would make a happy, yet sophisticated "Night at the Ritz"

  27. I think it would be beautiful in Enchanted Pond by Holly Taylor for Moda.
    Thanks for the chance to win a lovely gift certificate to your shop. You have so many gorgeous fabrics to choose from- it would be hard to pick my favorites.

  28. Judi Rothermel's 25th Anniversary Collection is just mouth-watering! And as always, I just love Fig Tree Fabrics and their new Avalon Collection is fantastic!!

  29. It is tough to pick just one fabric line with so many great ones but I would go with Freely Cruzin'by Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup for Henry Glass Fabrics

  30. I would use Remember by Carina Gardner for Riley Blake Designs. I love the blues, reds, greys, and greens.

  31. It's interesting that this is a very neutral quilt in the example, because I'd like to see it in bright, fun, young colors!

    I'd like to see this in Angela Yosten's Blogger's choice bundle.

  32. Shelburn Falls by Denise Schmidt for Free Spirit Fabrics in the Buckland colorway would be amazing for this pattern.

  33. I think I would try select prints from Snowman Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings. patseidle(at)gmail(dot)com

  34. This is a tough one because its hard to see the pattern, but I'll go with Aster by Williamsburg. Thanks for the giveaway.
