  1. I am dying for the new Salt Water from Tula Pink…just about anything would look good made from that fabric, I think!

  2. I think it could look really interesting in the Black Magic Batiks, it'd give it a totally different feel. I'd use the birds in the centre star and the black solid to replace the pink solid in the pattern.

  3. I would love to see this pattern made in Vintage Modern, with some of the coordinating Bella Solids to add extra zing to the outer points. One of the larger prints would be awesome for the outer triangle areas, and the charm squares would make a border that is…well, charming!

  4. Captain All Hands on Deck! by Jack and Lulu
    The contrasts of the navy and white with all the bright accent colors would be brilliant!

  5. If I were lucky winner, I would love to have some prints from Les Amis collection and maybe some solids in emerald:)

  6. You have way too many wonderful fabrics, I think I want at least one from every page, lol. It is winter and cold and I love the Folk Art Garden Flannel by Bonnie Sullivan, that would make a warm and cozy quilt to snuggle up in.


  7. I visualize this pattern sewn in Independence Trail by Minick and Simpson. Love red, white & blues. Maybe I could have it done in time for the 4th of July!

  8. Riley Blake's Blenders would be my choice – the modern feel of solid shades softened somewhat by the shaded colors in this collection. Yummy!

  9. I think this quilt would be stunning in Joel Dewberrys Notting Hill.
    I've had my eye on this quilt for such a long time, it's gorgeous!

  10. Well if I could not use the Hello Luscious that is shown on the pattern cover then how about Nottinghill by Joel Dewberry? I think that would be GORGEOUS!

  11. I can't help it … I think that pattern would love AWESOME in in the Oh Deer! by MoMo collection … very bright and cheery.

  12. wouldnt you love to have shabby, classy, romantic, elegant and breath-taking all in one……..thinking thats what you'd get if this pattern were done with Michele D'Amore line Antoinette

  13. I think Hill Farm fabrics by Brenda Riddle for Lecien fabrics would look great in all 3 colorways: Grange Hill Farm (grays), Orchard Hill Farm (pinks) and Meadow Hill Farm (light blues). This would be a soft and subtle look just right for winter looking forward to spring.

  14. I'd like to use the Noteworthy fabric by Sweetwater for Moda. I think it would be an excellent modern twist to a classic quilting layout!

  15. I think Friendship Tea Fat Quarter Bundle
    Sandy Lynam Clough for Red Rooster Fabrics would look lovely in this pattern.

  16. Hello Sunshine by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake would be a great collection for this pattern. It would be a great combination.

  17. I have never played before, but as soon as I saw this pattern I thought that "Honey, Honey" by Kate Spain would look lovely.

    I think the dark blue print with the lavender flowers would really stand out for the center star. If one want to go a little softer I think the Lavender fabric with the little blue flowers would be an excellent choice too.

    Oh No! Now you are tempting me!!

  18. I think Pirouette by Verna Mosquera would be fantastic. The colors and prints would work beautifully in this pattern and make for a super pretty quilt!

  19. I think it would look lovely in Paris Flea Market for Moda. Thank you.

  20. I'd love to see this pattern in a really bold 19th c repro, like Civil War Melodies (torn between the Victorious and Strong colorways).

  21. For the Pattern Sweet Starlet Quilt I would use the collection Cleo by Dear Stella Fabrics. i would use Cleo Orange Facets for the inside star, the second star would be Cleo blue Squiggles and the final star would be Cleo Sand Bargello. I would use the Cleo Blue Cleo Strip Yardage for the thin line around the quilt and the accompany remaining fabrics for around the star. I hope this makes sense!

    Anyway! I love the pattern and now think I should try it! What can I say…I think I am a fabric junkie! LOL

  22. I'm thinking this would look awesome with Sweetwater's "Lucy's Crab Shack". Thanks for a chance to win – laurie

  23. I would use the Jete Pirouette bundle by Verna Mosquera for Free
    Spirit Fabrics. I love the combinations of the browns & pinks.
    Thanks for the chance to win!


  24. I'm always looking to see what's coming and "Ashbury Heights" looks really fresh with its navy, purple, orange and yellow prints. The use of gray and aqua also in the line keeps it current.

  25. I think I would like it in Cinnamon Spice by Blackbird. I'm more traditional and I like all their fabrics and anything made with them!

  26. I would love to see this done in Kate Spain's Christmas fabric "Joy" and think it would be spectacular. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. Judy C

  27. I can see it done in Meadow Hill Farm by Brenda Riddle…..Soft blues and yellows. Yep, the look of spring…

  28. Favorite collection is hard! Luxe in Bloom, Architextures, and Salt Water are my favorites right now. So many choices!!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. I'd love to see this star pattern in the sumptuous Asian Peony fabrics by Punch Studio of Hoffman Fabrics. The rich metallic plums and periwinkle would make this star quilt twinkle!

  30. Hello,
    I suggest Winter Menagerie from Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics. It would give a surprising winterly touch to the pattern.
    Happy new year to everyone.

  31. I would love to see this quilt done in A Merry Little Christmas by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake. I'd add some solids, including white. This quilt will have a very soft but colorful look to it!

  32. Hi, I choose the mama said sew collection, I do love the red/white/grey combination,
    thanks fir the chance,

  33. I could see this quilt done using the fabrics from the Civil War Melodies line from Judie Rothermel. Almost any of the fabrics would be excellent for the middle star and then all the fabrics could be featured in the border.

  34. I would use the Pam Kitty Love line with the emphasis on yardage from the Enchantment bundle and the Delighted bundle and a touch of yardage from the Crush bundle thrown in. Perfect for Valentine's Day! Thank you for the opportunity to win.
