  3. I think it would look great with all solids; I think I'd do it in Jewel Tones Cotton Couture Solids (Michael Miller)

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. I would love to try this in Splendor 1920 by Bari J.! With a medium grey background it would be stunning and modern!

  5. I would use Zoe Pearn Designs for Riley Blake Designs "The Sweetest Thing". I am so in love with this fabric I would use it for everything!

  7. I would use Kaffe's Spot On Charm Pack because there is such a variety of colors in those charms. I think it would be perfect for those pinwheels.

  8. Besides Marmalade (the pattern cover), think that Indie from Art Gallery Fabrics would be a really different twist for the pattern.

  9. Mama Said Sew, by Sweetwater. Love it.

    Thanks for a chance to win the gift certificate. It's an awesome prize.


  10. I think Aster by Williamsburg for Windham Fabrics combined with Mardi Gras Stonehenge would make an interesting quilt. Spot On by Robert Kaufman would be great as the background fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

  11. I would definitely use the beautiful colors of Kate Spain's Cuzco – truly beautiful. Very generous of you and thank you. Judy C

  12. I would use Simple Marks Charm Pack
    Malka Dubrawsky for Moda Fabrics paired with Amy Butler Gold Quilting Solid Yardage for something different & modern. I adore the colors!

  13. I would use Willow collection:
    My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The soft yellows, grays, blues and pinks white a white background would be just beautiful.

  14. I think the Blotted Inkwell by Meg Hawkey for Lecien would be stunning I'd also use the Bella Solids natural and probably warmth brown aged for the contrast.

  15. I would choose Nottinghill Poppy by Joel Dewberry – Lots of great fabrics to choose from so it was hard to pick just one choice. It would need a bit of background fabric( neutral) to support all the color.
    Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate to your wonderful shop.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  16. This time of year the pattern reminds me of snowflakes, so I make a nice cozy winter lap quilt from the Winter Warmth Flannel collection.

  17. I would go for the unexpected and choose Little Black Dress–I think the contrast between the happy-go-lucky pattern and the sophisticated pattern would be eye-catching.

  18. For a different look to an amazing pattern I would use PB&J by BasicGrey (when it arrives) – love the colors in this range.

  19. I would use Mod Century by Jenn Ski for Moda Fabrics using the Cream Tweed Texture from that range as the background, the Turquoise Tweed texture for the border and the Tangerine Tweed Texture for hte binding. This is one striking fabric range I can't get enough of atm.

  20. Kaye Spain's CUZCO would do it for me… have yet to use her fabrics ""

  21. Aunt Grace First Place by Judie Rothermel with the Cornflower and white Chain as the background fabric is my favourite for the pattern

  22. I would make this as a Christmas quilt using FQS's Deck the Halls Spot On Fat Quarter Bundle.

  23. any of the Spot On bundles would be cute in this pattern if you're not using Marmalade (featured in the pattern), which is already perfect

  24. This fun and whimsical pattern would look top notch with a child's theme boasting an array of colors!

    Would look sweet with Castle Storybook Classics by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics available very soon!

    Thank You,

  25. I think I'd use V & Co, Simply Color with a very light grey or light blue (kona sky) as the background for those great brights.

  26. Great pattern and it would look great in so many different collections. I think I'd use Cuzo by Kate Spain. Avignon would also look beautiful.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.


  27. I absolutely love Seaside Cottage! I plan on finally making a
    quilt for myself with it. I make so many quilts for my
    family members, that after Christmas, it's my turn!

  28. I would use Shelburne Falls by Denyse Schmidt:) it would have vintage feel and yet still have that whimsical tinge. And the colours would be oh so lovely! Can't wait!
