  1. I love the beautiful simplicity and graceful curves of this quilt design. It would be stunning in any fabric grouping. Today, I choose Free Spirit's Buckland Shelburne Falls for it's variety and combinations of flowers, stripes, and graphics.

  2. I am thinking it would look great with Luxe in Bloom by Art Gallery Fabrics. Though not on a white background… Fun!

  3. The pattern is rather modern but I would choose Avalon, from Fig Tree. I think that the lighter florals would look wonderful on the white background and that the blue fabrics would really pop!

  4. I would choose Lario by Three Sisters. It is such a pretty line and would make such a sweet quilt. I think it would really pop on the white background.

  5. I think it would be great to see this pattern with really bold, in-your-face colors, so I would choose Comma!

  6. Ooh, the line I'm choosing this week is one you just got in….Aspen Frost by BasicGrey. I look forward to the kit from FQS in this line

  7. How about Antique Flower Collection by Lecien on a Kona Cotton Mint background? I LOVE the tone on tone shades of brown and taupe, and brown and mint are awesome together. The browns would really pop!

  8. I'd like to see this in Ladybug Garden by Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake–a happy print for a happy quilt!


  9. What a beautiful pattern! I think it would look lovely done in V and Co. Simply Color. Thank you for a chance to win. swim(dot)usn(at)gmail(dot)com.

  10. I am totally digging the Spring House Collection by
    Stephanie Ryan for Moda Fabrics! I think it would make a great spring time quilt! The colors are fun and festive! I think they would work amazing with this quilt!

  11. I would select Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. Cute to have bright colors against the solid background – alternate email mlwright29(@)hotmail(.)com

  12. So fresh! Love white backgrounds. My choice is Little Red Riding Hood by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs

  13. The perfect fabric line would be "Spring House'. Just drop it in the mail to me and I'll be a happy quilter. Thanks!

  14. I think this pattern would look lovely in the Field Notes fabrics by Blackbird Designs (Moda) . You have so many pretty lines that it is always hard to pick some fabrics.
    Warmest regards,

  15. I would use the Avalon line by Fig Tree for this. It's so hard to pick, though! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway. πŸ™‚

  16. I think it would be really cute in the new Dr. Seuss line, Oh! The Places you'll go… as you wander down the path πŸ™‚

  17. I would choose Bonnie & Camille's Happy-go-Lucky becuase with all the white background you need a really bright collection.

  18. I would keep it simple. Two colors Riley Blake Daisy and Clean White. For a binding it would be fun to use Riley Blake small gingham in yellow. :0)

  19. I love Little Red Riding Hood by Tasha Noel which was featured earlier this week. I would definitely use it for this pattern.


  20. I would be using Gallery in Red by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers Fabrics along with other red and whites because I love two color quilts. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity.

  21. I am a more traditional quilter and so I think I would like to try the lastest Jo Morton fabric, Madison Manor, to see how that would look-Modern to Traditional! πŸ™‚

  22. I would love to see this done on a beige or off white with Autumn Splendor. How pretty would that be!

  23. I was looking thru the new fat quarter bundles and loved the Mint Julep Batiks. Perfect for this pattern. Really look forward to Fridays and playing this game. Lets me see different patterns and look at fabric. What can be better.

  24. Keep the white background and use Aster by Williamsburg,I believe Black and yellow with white is fashionable at present.

  25. I think Sakura would be beautiful made in PB&J or FRESH …either one with a true white background… all the choices at your shop !!!

  26. I would probably use Simply Color on a grey background. That would make a big bold statement of "follow me!"

  27. I really think that "Happy Kaffe Fasset Collective" with some of the "Macaroon Bali snaps" used throughout would be perfect. Such bright and actually snappy colors, so perfect for spring! πŸ™‚

  28. I would use Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics it looks so fun and cheery. I would try a soft yellow for the back ground.
