  1. I love diagonals and think that using Willow Stonehenge by Northcott Fabrics would be fun. I'd use light shades on the top left diagonal to dark shades on the bottom right.

  2. Looking thru the fabrics, there are so many that I think this quilt would look adorable in… Honey, honey… Paris Flee Market would give it a lovely soft vintage look… Spa would be relaxing and maybe take on the look of some gentle rolling waves. Thanks for reminding us about this great pattern! I just might have to give it a try!

  3. I think this would look great in Grace In A Pickle by Judie Rothermel with Bella Solids as the contrast. I think 30's prints would work great with this pattern

  4. This pattern could make a great two color quilt in shades of blue and white. I pick Indigo Crossing. A bit of tan would be okay as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I love the Facade pattern. I think I would use Art Gallery Fabric's Carnaby Street. Thanks for the chance to win.

  6. Cute pattern, I think I would opt for mellow grace in a pickle, which is a little out of my comfort zone! I need to be more adventurous with my colour choices :o)

  7. Maybe it is the Good Fortune in the picture, but wouldn't this be sweet with Honey Honey by Kate Spain? What wouldn't be, seriously!?

  8. I would love to see this in Julia Rothman's Type. And then I clicked over to FQS to make sure that you have Type (which of course you do, because you have everything awesome) and learned that Julia has a new collection called Ride coming in spring. Sigh, I need to start saving my pennies. Or maybe take a second job, because there is just too much fabric that I Have.To.Have. LOL!

  9. well, i 'd like to have some of the CARNABY STREET range… as i remember i had a cute all inone sleevless jumpsuit for going clubbing out of similar fabric… maybe i can relive those "single"days!!!

  10. I love the civil war package you show here. My son while in high school was a civil war and WWII buff..his senior high teacher even asked me if he could have my son "teach" the class on certain things cause "he knows more than I do about it!". So a Civil War theme quilt is what I am planning on making my son for his birthday in June.

  11. The Back to School fabric line would be perfect for a quilt I have in mind!

  12. I think it would look great in the new line from Fig Tree- Joanna Figuerea- Avaoln or their Happy- Go- Lucky line from Bonnie and camille!

  13. Carnaby Street has me absolutely enthralled. I wish I'd win. I'm just sayin' it would be so nice. Thank you for the chance Fat Quarter Shop Jolly Jabber!

  14. I know that it doesn't come in until some time in February but I would definitely use Blueberry and Lime Boho Girl by Debra Valencia of Insights for Wilmington Prints! The colors would be so bright and cheery for spring! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I could see this in dots and it would be easy to use the 10" stacker: Medium Tone on Tone Cotton Dots โ€‹by Riley Blake Designs

  16. I love three ranges –
    one for my daughter: Hip Hop Garden
    one for my son: Pirates
    Finally one for me: Happy Tones!

    So selfishly I would go for Happy tones!! ๐Ÿ˜€
