  1. right now, I'm in love with Cinnamon Spice! Because we're so close to Valentines's day, I'd use the the lovely warm reds in the line to make the quilt!

  2. I will agree as usual with sew cindy. I love browns so chocolat by 3 sisters. Good luck everyone. May the odds be forever in your favor….or should I say mine. I am giggling writing this

  3. For this pattern I would choose Strawberries, Blueberries and Chocolate for Marcus Brothers–with such a decadent name and such beautiful colors, how can you go wrong?

  4. Frippery by Thomas Knauer for Andover would make this very fun. I'd have to get some Bella solid for the background ( yea it's 20% off right now).

  5. I love the new Indigo Crossing fabric line. Would love to win a gift certificate so I can buy awonderful fat quarter bundle! Judy W

  6. I think this pattern would look great with Jenean Morrison's "In My Room" (i'm partial to the orange colorway, but the green one is pretty too)

  7. Love the pattern choice! I would have to make the quilt using Spring House fabrics by Stephanie Ryan since it includes all my favorite colors.

  8. Maybe it is the holiday this month. I nominate Aspen Batiks from Hoffman for this quilt. Mmmm…. mouthwatering yummy just thinking about it.

  9. That is a very interesting pattern. I would like to see the whole quilt laid out. I think I'd choose Anna Bella by Marcus Brothers for that though. I love florals!

  10. French General Favorite for me or maybe even Posie! I have two daughters and would not want to leave one out! Thank you for the chance to win…

  11. I would pick Field Notes, with the grey floral as the border. Could be dazzling. Thanks for the chance to win. And thanks for all the great fabrics and patterns you offer!

  12. This would be pretty with marmalade by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. The border in that pretty lemon apron cotton with the raspberry stripe for binding contrasting with all the blues, greens, reds, pinks, and taupe would be so pretty and cheery!

  13. I would pick Ravena by Dear Stella. The stripes would go great for the star points and the beautiful flowers would go great in the large star centers. Then round it out with Stella solids for background. Can't go wrong with a blue and white quilt!

  14. I am tired of winter! I think something bright and springy would do this pattern justice – like Thesaurus from Andover Eabrics or Sketch from Timeless Treasures. Thanks!

  15. I think it would look great in batiks like Gelato Mini Tonga Treat by Timeless Treasures Fabrics or Laundry Basket Batiks.

  16. Wow this is so pretty and I think there would be a few but I really like "Field Notes" by Blackbird Designs there is just something that seems to match this beautiful quilt. Keeping my fingers crossed.. sgriff57(at)comcast(dot)net This is a wonderful opportunity, thank you

  17. Margot Languedoc has great patterns of which I have several. I think this one would look good in Strawberries, blueberries, & Chocolate by Judi Rothermel.

  18. I would definitely make that in the Glamping layer cake by Mary Jane Butters … it'd be fun and retro-chic. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I'd love to do this one in Birds & Berries by Lauren & Jessi Jung for Moda Fabrics. I love that line and have been looking for a pattern that would show it off!

  20. Lovely pattern! So many fabulous new lines out but my next project is for a friend who likes neutrals so I would choose the Posh Cosmopolitan line.

  21. I am really liking the Pam Kitty Love fabrics. I think the pattern would look good in the PKL accent fabrics. The quilt pictured is really cute.

  22. I would love to use the Dancing in the Rain Layer Cake on Everlasting Cream. and Everlasting Pomegranate for the binding. My border fabric would be Tapestry Azure Marakesh

    I think this would make a beautiful quilt.

  23. Its a lovely design- How about the Piper fabrics in the Dear Stella line. I am thinking that the tone on tone purple would make a great background for this quilt.
    Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate to the fat quarter shop. It is a wonderful shop and I have always loved the fabrics that I received from your shop.
    Regards from Alberta,

  24. Happy Tones by Michael Miller Fabrics would be my choice because I love bright vibrant colors and anything polka-dotted is super cute!

  25. I think this would make a lovely quilt for a little girl using: Sally Timy Prints Collection by Lecien Fabrics

  26. I'm thinking Rebecca by Mary Koval for Windham Fabrics would be just perfect. patseidle at gmail dot com.

  27. What a wonderful pattern. I would love to use Pirouette by Verna Mosquera for Free Spirit Fabrics. I think this pattern would just "shine" with this fabric.

  28. If I wanted to do it in muted colors I would use Double Chocolate, but to really make it BURST, I would use Snap Pop.

  29. For this pattern I think I would try something different (at least for me) and use Dear Stella's Gilt Trip. I've never tried using prints with metallic accents but I think the starbursts would be fun done up in a little bling!
