  1. I would use Comma for this quilt design. I was going to choose just black and white but then decided a bit of colour would look good in there too!

  2. I think I would use PB&J from Basic Grey for this pattern. I think the contrast and the colors would work well with this design.

  3. I'm thinking this would make an awesome holiday quilt made out of the
    Nancy's Holiday Favorites Collection by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex Fabrics

  4. As we are still freezing here in Wisconsin I would love a hint of spring with the Chinoise collection from Clothworks!!

  5. I think a beautiful quilt could be made using Art Gallery Textures, adding in Coordinating solids from Art
    Gallery's Pure Element Solids, and using Textures Pearl Swirl for the background fabric.

  6. I would choose Me and My Sister Designs' Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle Ticklish Collection with a white background. Those colors would be great for a kids quilt.

  7. I am trying to picture it using Mocha Kiss batiks. I think the pink/brown combo for the rings would be pretty with the creamy batiks as the non-ring sections.

  8. I cannot believe I haven't seen this pattern before. Ooh, I like it – a lot! I'd definitely use Double Chocolat by 3sisters for this beauty!

  9. Love this pattern. A fabric I've been wanting to use is Judie Rothermel's Strawberries, Blueberries and Chocolate. I think this would be a perfect pattern to show off the small prints. Hope I win!

  10. I like PB&J for this quilt. But for an entirely different look, I'd like to see it in the giant ginghams. Love that Oink a Doodle Cow Hide print–not for this, but what a great fabric!

  11. Oh my goodness. Once again great minds think alike. I love this and would use double chocolat for this. My mom sewcindy and I definitely have the same taste. Thanks so much

  12. Hummm…I had to really think about this one. I think La Belle Fleur would suit this pattern perfectly. I'd use a variety of the red-toned prints from the collection, and La Belle Fleur Pearl Luiz Yardage for the background.

  13. I think the new Calliope collection would look awesome with this pattern. Or I could be biased since that's my baby's name πŸ˜‰

  14. So many good ones but I think I would go with Enchanted Pond by Holly Taylor. Love the greens, purple, magenta and dark cream mix.

  15. I think this would be really fun with a dark navy or grey background and then all those fabulous happy-go-lucky colors!

  16. I would love to try Marmalade with this pattern. I have such fun looking into your Blog and seeing what people are putting with what pattern. It's like a lovely game that is about all of the things that I enjoy so much. I hope everyone's Easter week is fun for their families.

  17. Im not going with my usual answer, since I think PB&J from Basic Grey would look really good with this particular pattern!

  18. Prairie Rose by Riley Blake. Such a soft but patriotic palette would go wonderfully with the links!

  19. Since we are all waiting for spring/summer to get here I would make this quilt using Spring House by Stephanie Ryan.

  20. I would choose Trifles Frippery collection, by Thomas Knauer for Andover Fabrics, on white background, with a couple of matching solids to fill in. I think it would be gorgeous!

  21. I'd love it in A Merry Little Christmas! I really need to start thinking about Christmas sewing now so it will be ready in time. This year my Christmas sewing was finished for Valentine's gifts.

  22. The outer circles will look awesome in Sunrise over the Rainbow Batiks, with the inner (white) sections in Salt and Pepper Tonga Batiks.

  23. I would like to see the rings in fabrics from Earth, Wind & Fire by
    Exclusively Quilters Fabrics. For the background I would use Kona Ash. The bright colors would really pop!

  24. I would choose "One For the Boys" by Riley Blake. As the mom of two boys, I'm thankful that cool boy fabric is getting easier to find!

  25. I'd love to see it made with a rainbow selection of Fairy Frost fabrics.
    Some I'd like to see used would be
    Sunset, tangerine, Sunshine ,Fresh,
    some blue, Wisteria and Fuschia.

  26. I believe that I would use the Love & Liberty collection. Staying with the pink fabrics for the background squares and the wide cream for the other. I think would give it a very elegant and antique look. πŸ™‚

  27. I think Love & Liberty by Robyn Pandolph would be a grand choice. It's so dreamy and has such a vintage feel that I believe it would be a good fit for this pattern.

  28. I would use PB & J by Basic Grey. Love the variety of patterns and colors…really enjoy your website.

  29. This is would be wonderful in Noteworthy by Sweetwater. So springlike, which would sure look good today with today's forecast for snow.

  30. I'm going to go with Mary Jane Butters' Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle Glamping Collection! It would make a happy happy quilt.

  31. Notting Hill for me. I probably wouldn't use the large flower print, because I would save that for a different project. But all those other, coordinating prints would really shine in this pattern.

  32. I would use Newsprint Spot On Fat Quarter Bundle and the Cherry Fizz Spot On Fat Quarter Bundle from Kaufman Fabrics to make this too cute quilt!

  33. I love, love, love Robert Kaufman's Totally Tropical Batiks! What rich colors & what a great selection for the half hexie pillows.

  34. I would love to use:
    Love & Liberty Charm Pack
    Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics! What a pretty, girly quilt it would make.

  35. This quilt would look great in Indigo Crossing by Minick & Simpson for Moda. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Debbie R.

  36. Ever since seeing the Red & White quilt show at the American Folk Art Museum I've been wanting to do a red and white quilt. This pattern would be perfect for that! I'd use Kona Cotton in cardinal and snow.

  37. I have such a hard time picking just one, but today Boho by Moda really jumped out at me. It just makes me smile. Thanks for the chance
