  1. 'Don't be Crabby' would be super cute!
    I like the chevron/zigzag layout better- they remind me of waves. So some crabs, boats, fish, whales, the tile pattern and voila SUPER CUTE children's science themed quilt.

  2. I have done this pattern before and love it; I did it in the 5 monkeys. But for a different choice, I think it would be darling using Baby Jane by Eric and Julie Comstock for Moda Fabrics.

  8. I'd choose Simply Color – sooo in love with that collection at the moment! I could see little dolls made to match for my girls too.

  9. In the last couple weeks, I have made 3 things from Little Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings. I "heart" every line Primitive Gatherings puts out.

  10. I would do it in the brand new Welcome to Sesame Street by Quilting Treasures! Oh the bright colors and the eyes fabric would be so cute for the baby to focus on.

    Thanks for introducing me to another great pattern,

  11. For a girl, I would use Honey Honey by Kate Spain. For a boy, I would use Thomas the Train or Who's That Train? From Timeless Treasures. The zigzags would look great for train tracks with a train theme.

    Thanks! So much fun!

  12. I love all the fresh-sea, clear air in the mountains. I'm going to blow the collection Seascapes. I was in this range is very comfortable. Galina

  13. I'd use Owlivia by Bernartex. I've just discovered this adorable line on your site, and I love it. Maybe because I have a daughter named Olivia who loves Owls!

  14. I'd like to make this with Art Gallery's Luxe in Bloom too, I think the pale pinks and icy blues would make a lovely baby quilt!

  15. I would love to see this in one of the Pam Kitty fabric collections. I love those fabrics and I think they would do well with the simplicity of this pattern.

  16. There are a few collections that would be fabulous in this pattern, but for some reason I am always drawn back to the new 'Sesame Street' line – i think this would make a really fun quilt! Besides, I have always loved Sesame Street πŸ™‚

  17. I'd love to see this pattern in Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss Enterprises for Robert Kaufman Fabrics – too cute πŸ™‚ thanks for the chance to win !

    me to make for my daughter! Thanks

  21. i d love to see this pattern done up in the,stonehenge collection. esp. the red and greens. mmmmmmm

  22. I'd love this pattern with "ticklish" from me and my sisters moda, and a black background,
    thanks for the chance,

  23. Ticklish by Me & My Sister. Because I need a "girl" baby quilt and the pink, lime, and turquoise in this line would be wonderful!

  24. I think it would be great in Ticklish by Me and My Sister. Both of my grands are girls so I'm always thinking girly colors.

  25. I think I would like to see it in Bella solids. It would look nice draped over my ironing board when I don't use it. Also, Bella, my cat would love it.

  26. I think because my husband is in construction and plays the guitar I would have to choose Apple Jack Cotton for my newest grandson. And because it is so darn cute!

  27. I'd choose comma by Zen Chic for Moda. So their would be lots of contrast and nice4 and bright for babies. conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

  28. Everything with kids is magic and surprise. What is more magical than Christmas? Holly Jolly Christmas by Mary Lake-Thompson for Robert Kaufman fabrics would be my choice for this whimsical quilt.

  29. Well, this was a hard decision.
    I would pick Crew All Hands on Deck by Jack and Lulu. In the fall, when these prints are available, Boys Giddy Up or Girls Giddy Up by Janet Selck would make another adorable quilt.

  30. 5 Funky Monkeys line or the 10 Rubber Ducks ( Eric Carle's newest line) They both would make a fun baby quilt.
    Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate from your lovely shop.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  31. I think the Safari Soriree Organic fabrics by Dan Stiles for Birch Fabrics would look good for this pattern. This is a fun pattern, and one might even be able to position the elephants, monkeys, and giraffes to look as if they're walking up the steps!

  34. I just found out that my first grandchild arrives in August. Bring on the baby quilt patterns! I think this pattern would look great in Hello Sunshine by Lori Whitlock.

  35. I would love to make this up with Stella Dot by Dear Stella! I would use the bright tones for the main zigzags, and use the white background prints for the light/white areas shown in the pattern. I love both versions of this pattern!
