  1. I think that the New colonies collection would be great with the Peace and joy pattern. The tumbler shapes would be distinct and the quilt would be an explotion of color

  2. I'd love to make this in Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey, I think it would look bright and cheery as well as spreading peace and joy

  3. Sandy Gervais' Flirt line with the word:
    across the center!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. A little boy's quilt with Robotex by Mint Blossom for Northcott Fabrics with the words 'Let's Play'!

    Thank you,

  5. This would be so cute with the Vibrant Pillow & Maxfield Christmas set by Pillow & Maxfield! The bright colors on that set would make it so cheery. Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Hug Me! I mean the fat quarter set by Sue Zipkin, of course! The awesome contrast of light and dark would be very fun!

  7. I know it isn't Christmassy, but I would use the Ladybug Garden 5" Stacker Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake Designs. It is so light and cheerful.

  8. I would use "mama said sew" collection, I always love a black/white/red combination,
    thaqnks for the chance,

  9. This pattern would work with about every fabric. I guess I'd go with Joy, but you'd just have to make another with another fabric line! Thanks so much!

  10. I think this would look wonderful in Dear Mr. Claus by Cosmo Cricket. Thanks for the inspiration and the wonderful giveaway opportunity!

  11. I would think that the Blitzen line from basic Grey for MODA would be a fun line, and would make it work into the winter months, as well as the holiday season.

  12. The perfect fabric for that quilt would be Cherry Christmas" by Anella Hoey for Moda Fabrics. I can see it hanging over my brown leather chesterfield

  13. I think this pattern would look lovely with Lansdowne Road by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics. The warm, light reds and greens would make this quilt soft and beautiful.

  14. How about Christmas at Home? There is a nice variety of prints, with good contrast and designs of a perfect size for these tumblers.

  15. Peace and Joy is a perfect pattern choice for these few days before Christmas! Our wish for everyone is peach and joy! My choice for a fabric collection is On the Go by Riley Blake. Love Riley Blake fabric designs. They are so colorful. Sally

  16. I think that the Holiday Serenade by Hoffman or the Hunter Holiday Serenade by Hoffman would be gorgeous in Cara's quilt pattern.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours,

  17. I see Karen of Karen's quilts likes the same collection as me: I would like to use the French General Bundle. I just really like that group! Thanks for the giveaway

  18. ha Growing Hollyhock Cottage Fat Quarter Bundle
    je les aime tous … mais voila peut etre celui qui me tente
    merci a vous pour tous les jours nous apporter toutes ces beautรฉs
    a bientot

  19. Well, it's a little late to make this for this christmas but I just discovered Silvia Dekker's Winter Warmth and I think it would make the perfect winter quilt (that's not just for christmas!) ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. I would use Noteworthy and have something from the text print across the center, instead of Peace + Joy. Having 'Make a Quilt' might be cute.

  21. I think Charlie Brown Christmas is the perfect fabric for this quilt. Would be so cute with all the faces & lights peeking out of each tumbler. This is so much fun each week. Thanks!

  22. I don't usually go for novelty fabric, but I think A Charlie Brown Christmas would be perfect for this quilt. Those tumbler blocks lend themselves to some great fussy cutting of adorable Peanuts characters.

  23. I would await til May and try it with the Bake Shop line by Lori Holt. A suitable phrase with a baking theme could be in the word panel. It would be a fun quilt. Merry Xmas

  24. I would love to make it with "Hugs and Holly" by the Wooden Bear for Red Rooster Fabrics!

    Love the mittens, gingerbread men, sentimental words and of course, the snowflakes for the blocks!

    For a striking accent, Santa and reindeers, elfs and penquins prancing around the border in the multi-border stripe fabric!
