  1. I think I would choose Ladybug Garden by Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake. I'm in love with that collection. grandmas9(at)msn(dot)com

  2. i would choose Fig tree's Avalon. I think that would make a sweet quilt with this pattern.

  3. I think Audra's Iris Garden by Brannock & Patek for Moda Fabrics would be perfect. rjprytz at hotmail dot com.

  4. I'd choose Sidewalks by October Afternoon! The pattern and the fabric remind me of sweet summer afternoons!

  5. This quilt will look great in Prairie Rose by Sue Daley Designs for Riley Blake Designs! The contrast in the fabric will really make the pinwheels pop.

  6. I know its not our yet, but I would pick baby Jane by Eric and Julie Comstock for Moda, for this Quilt Pattern.

  7. For this pattern I would choose the Metropolitan Fair jelly roll by Barbara Brackman for Moda. With the right background fabric it would look stately and sophisticated.

  8. The colors from the Good Morning by Me and My Sister mixed with some of their Shades of Black (once released of course) would really make the bright colors pop making the windmills standout against a white background. What a fun combo this would make for a young girl who isn't a baby or toddler, but not a teen!

  9. I would use : Flirt by Sandy Gervais for Moda,
    so lovely,
    thanks for the chance,

  10. I would definitely do this in 2wenty Thr3e by Eric & Julie Comstock for Moda Fabrics. I would HAVE to do the border in the ticket patterned fabric! Yum!

  11. Oh, Happy Day……….I would love to have Vintage Modern..what fun it would be.

  12. Oh it's so hard to choose a favorite jelly roll! I think this pattern would be cute in just about any color or print!
    That said, Simply Color would be pretty fantastic!

  13. I'd make this quilt with "Glamping" Jelly Roll by Mary Jane Butters!!! What a delightful quilt it will make too!!! πŸ™‚

  14. I would use: Storybook Classics by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics…I think this pattern is great for reproduction fabrics.

  15. Love the colours in 2wenty Thr3e Jelly Roll
    Eric & Julie Comstock for Moda Fabrics .. think this would look gorgeous in windmills.

  16. I would choose "Snowman Gatherings"
    for Moda Fabrics for this pattern. I like the variety of colors in it. I may just have to get some myself, if I don't win, and make a quilt with this collection. I just LOVE it! πŸ™‚

  17. I have the range of Architexture fabrics and am looking for a pattern to use it with. This one might work well.

  18. I really like this pattern, and it would look super in many lines. I would say Indigo Crossing would be my choice today- but another day could well be a different choice.

  19. I think Aunt Grace First Place by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Brothers Fabrics would be very appropriate for this pattern.

  20. Great pattern. I think it would look great in Chateau Chambray from Andover

  21. I think this would look great in Northcott's " Singapore Sling". Thank you for running this competition.

  22. I really like Happy Tones Happy Roll by Michael Miller Fabrics for the Windmill Quilt Pattern. But I also like 2wenty Thr3e Jelly Roll by Eric and Julie Comstock by Moda Fabrics. And then there is also Cinnamon Spice by Blackbird Designs.
    This is just a really versatile quilt pattern. Perfect for many different fabric lines and tastes. Thanks for the chance!

  23. I'm drawn to all the spring colors right now, so I think it would be great in Me & My Sister's Good Morning line.

  24. I would choose Ladybug Garden Rolie Polie jelly roll to play with this pattern. shaza.zain(at)gmail(dot)com

  25. I absolutely am in LOVE with the Pam Kitty line from Lakehouse Dry Goods.
    The colors and the "vintagey" look really tickle my heart. I want to buy some of the fat quarter bundles and make a comforter with them.

  26. Sweetly blushing would be my choice. So sweet for a baby or kid's quilt.

  27. I think this pattern would be so pretty in Field Notes by Blickbird.

  28. I'd love it in Once Upon a Time by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics. So soft and pretty. jonna (dot) pedrioli (at) gmail (dot) com.

  29. I'm with you Megan! I love this pattern and I am dying to do something with Honey Honey by Kate Spain! This would be so cute!!

  30. I think this would be stunning in the Color Wheel Over The Rainbow Batiks. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  31. I love Riley Blake's new collection WILLOW. I love the ideas presented. Thanks. Edna

  32. I would pick Spring House by Stephanie Ryan as these colors are my colors and I really want to make something with this line and this pattern would be great to try them out on.

  33. Since it's a Jelly Roll pattern, I scrolled through the FQS, and chose Flirt by Sandy Gervais. The quilt would look beautiful all year round and I'm in love with the birds πŸ™‚ The aqua/red/pink/gray color combo is one of the best ever!

  34. I would use either the Wildberry Bali Pop Hoffman Fabrics or Sweetly Blushing Fat Quarter Bundle Margot Languedoc for Henry Glass Fabrics. it's really hard to pick between the 2.

  35. This is such a versatile pattern. It would look great in lots of different fabrics. I'm going to pick Honey Honey by Kate Spain.

  36. Great pattern this week! I would love to make a Christmas version with In From the Cold by Kate Spain.

  37. I would love to do this pattern in Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics. The colors and pattern of the fabric would look great.

  38. I can't help but see this pattern in Marmalade, I think it would be beautiful!

  40. I would love it in Avignon by Fig Tree or Happy go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. (Sorry, I can't choose one!)

  41. OMG how can i choose just one!?! I love everything by Free Spirit but maybe the Birds and the Bees or Shelburne Falls? Thanks!

  42. I love stonehenge! Any of them would look fantastic like adobe or rainbow ….each would look totally different!

  43. I love the sweet flowers in Rose Cottage designed by Skipping Stone Studio for Clothworks Fabric.

    Perfect gift quilt.

  44. French General. French General. French General. I know. I sound like a broken record but I tell you, I dream French General.

  45. The Sakura Park collection is beautiful. It reminds me of Spring and is soft and light. Great for
    a young girl's room or for a guest bedroom. I am thinking of using it for my annual charity quilt top that I make for my local church.
    It is then hand quilted by ladies from the Council on Aging. I have three sewing machines, including a Featherweight that I inherited from my aunt. It works great!!

  46. I'd like to use Luxe in Bloom by Art Gallery, what a pretty quilt pattern that is! Thank you for the giveaway.

  47. It would be nice in the new PB&J from Basic Gray. Or, for something totally different, the Grunge Basics from Basic Gray would be stunning. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Debbie R.

  48. I think this lovely pattern would look great in Le Belle Fleur by French General. Thanks for another great giveaway!

  49. Wouldn't it be fun in Totally Tropical Batiks and Kona Solids? Thanks for putting my name in the hat fo this drawing!
