  1. I adore batiks of any kind, so ia would use hoffman's Evergreen collection. You have the best online fabric shop around – thank you for your customer service ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I would choose Pam Kitty Love by Pam Kitty Morning for Lakehouse Dry Goods. With so many adorable patterns–florals, dots, stripes and hearts– in so many colors, you could make several versions of this quilt out of these fabrics and no two would be the same.

  3. I think it would be fabulous using the Eggplant and Hot Pink fabrics from Simply color. Love those color ways! domesticgoddess18(at)hotmail(dot)com

  4. My favorite line is Metropolitan Fair by Barbara Brackman. I just love the softness and antique look that the fabrics line has.

  5. I think Kissing Booth by Basic Grey would be perfect — given the Pattern Name! Perfect for Valentin's Day 2014!!!

  6. I would choose Portobello Notting Hill, so pretty!
    Thanks for the chance!


  7. My first thought was any of the French General fabrics, but being close to Christmas why not the red colorway of Holiday Flourish by Peggy O'Toole. Would provide festiveness and a bit of the unexpected.

  8. I just LOVE Flower Sugar by Lecien Fabrics. The colors are perfect…. there are reds for the hearts and the other colors that are just so bright and beautiful as perfect complements!

  9. Andover's The Red Thread by Marisa and Creative Thursday would be fun. One could fussy cut some of the creatures for the hearts.

  10. Trying to stray away from the usual Valentines-y fabric, but still remaining romantic, I think Friendship Tea by
    Sandy Lynam Clough for Red Rooster Fabrics is a perfect pick.

    The large rose print is great for the hearts, the Victorian'ish landscape print would be great for the background, and there are lovely small prints for the rail fence part!

  11. I think Cinnamon Spice by Blackbird Designs would look terrific in the Hearts To You pattern. Thank you for the give-away!

  12. I thnk that Renee Nanneman's new line Chateau Chambray would make a perfect translation for this pattern. Of course the pinks would be the first choice, but who says you can't have blue hearts?!?!? Thanks for letting us play fabric games, nothing more fun than playing in stash. Susan

  13. Thanks for the giveaway. I would use Flirt by Sandy Gervais for Moda. I like the reds, grays, and aquas together.


  14. I really like Mayfair Town and Country. It would give "Hearts to You" a total facelift (the fabric they used looks dated circa 1980s? when you don't want to date your fabric….if you were going for a 1930's look, that's a different story). I like to play with bold colors and you could get an entirely different quilt by using Mayfair. If you want to know the names of the print for each piece, let me know. Thanks for letting me "play"! Erin

  15. I really want to do a polka dot quilt and would Love Kaufman 's Silver Spoon Spot On bundle with that pattern! Paired with solid gray…..inspiring!

  16. reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com
    I would use Life is Beautiful by Helen Stubbins for Red Rooster Fabrics. Lots of cute hearts and flowers in a variety of colors, but especially the reds and creamy backgrounds. Just pretty!
    But of course, there are others I would love to use, too, like Kissing Booth and Cuzco.

  17. how 'bout something a little different…i'd choose black magic batiks by hoffman fabrics.

  18. I'd use Laurel Burch basics—hearts (of course) and throw in some of her basics circles. They read as small prints, keep with the overall heart theme, but still work to replace the country colors with a more playful palette.

  19. The hearts make me think of Valentine's Day so I would use Flirt by Sandy Gervais. There are lots of beautiful fabrics in the line to choose from.

  20. I would like to make this patter from the "Aqua Red " collection by Micharl Miller. I would use the red checked for the hearts and the other prints for the rail fence and shading . Aqua and red can be very fashionable

  21. I think Fig Trees Avalon would give it a new twist – especially with the creams and greens contrasting with the reds

  22. I would use "Willow by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs". I would just love to see this pattern in a modern fabric but in soft colors.

  23. Since Amanda Murphy's Bella is my #1 favorite collection and I just got my pile of it, I'll enter with my #2 current favorite Cuzco.

  24. My favorite collection is Celebrate Seuss 2 by Dr. Seuss ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the great givaway!

  25. I'd go with Minick and Simpson's "Independance Trail" Thanks for a chance to win ๐Ÿ™‚ Laurie


  26. love the idea behind that book! That's what I should try to do. Make myself play for at least 15 min. a day!
    For the pattern I think I'd use some of the prints from Love to Garden by Anni Downs. My quilt would reveal both my love for quilting and for gardening!

  27. I love the colors of Kansas Troubles so I would really like to try this pattern in "A Year to Crow About" by Jacqueline Paton. Just found your site last week and am really enjoying it. Thanks for the ideas.

  28. I am a newbie to your blogs and I would pick Color Wheel over the Rainbow Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts. I love all the bright colors.

  29. This is a great pattern for a Valentine baby, which I just happen to be! I would choose Moda's Double Chocolat because, well, I'm a chocoholic and don't hearts and chocolate go together?! Besides, the fabrics in this line are just plain nummy!

  30. I am a newbie for your blog and would love to see it as Color Wheel over the Rainbow Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts. I love all the bright colors it has!

    Please delete my earlier comment, I forgot to add my e-mail.

  31. i'd use Hug Me by Sue Zipkin for clothworks. how cute would that be with the hearts in the border!
    bumblybzs at gmail dot com

  32. I would love to use Loving Heart of the Prairie by Pam Buda for Marcus Brothers!

    Thank you for a very fun challenge!



  33. I think Kansas Troubles Favorites would look great in this pattern. I am always drawn to Kansas Troubles fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. I love this pattern and it would be exceptionally beautiful in Prairie Rose by Riley Blake! I choose this line because I would love to make it for my husband and this line is not too feminine. Annette

  35. I choose Old Glory Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics I just started a quilt for my son with this darling fabric!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway how fun!!!

  36. Sweetcakes by Doodlebug Design would be perfect with this pattern! The heart motifs with the color palette of robin egg blue, pinks and reds would tie in perfectly with the hearts in the pattern. Yummy fabric! Thanks for the opportunity!

  37. I would most definitely use 'Flirt' by Sandy Gervais for this one! I think it would look darling!

  38. I am looking forward to hello sunshine coming in this month from Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake. Every heart quilt should be bright and cheery

  39. I think the strawberries and blueberries from Judie Rothermel's Strawberries, Blueberries for Marcus Brothers Fabrics would look gorgeous!

  40. For some reason this pattern has me thinking of when my sister's husband first told her that he loved her and she responded with "I love cake."

    Nothing other than Heather Rosas's upcoming Sweet Treats will work for me now. Lovely collection with just the right amount of whimsy.
