Mrs.Pickles said...

lovely post. I am really into Little Black Dress by BasicGrey. Hopefully Santa brings me some

Andrea said...

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.

Elin said...

I think Tapestry by Fig Tree would fit perfectly to this lovely pattern.

Ben D said...

BasicGrey's Kissing Booth

Carol said...

I'd like to see how this would look in Little Black Dress. :)

The colorway is perfect for this quilt!!!!

Mary Ann said...

I like the pattern in Aqua Red by Michael Miller Fabrics.

Art by Rhoda Forbes said...

I would use Creek the Birds and the Bees by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics. There are some delicious choices in this collection.

Kimi said...

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!

kymmiko (at) gmail dot com

Beth said...

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

Martina said...

I would also use cinnamon and spice! Just bought the FQ bundle! But I think French General La Belle Fleur would be great too!

LittleBook said...

I would use Olive the Ostrich by Laurie Wisbrun. It is too literal to use heart fabric for the hearts? I don't think so!

Schatzi said...


Homeschool by LB Krueger for Windham Fabrics

roberta mill said...

I would use Pam Kitty Love by Lakehouse drygoods.

Jane S. said...

I decided on Flirt by Sandy Gervais -- it's bright and sassy and would make a really cute heart quilt. :)

Lana said...

Anonymous said...

Roxana Marsh
nevadablue43@centurylink.net

Mull3g said...

Flirt by Sandy Gervais or the Zen Chic bloggers bundle.

Susan said...

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

Anonymous said...

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

Linda said...

Kissing Booth would be my pick

Anonymous said...

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

Janet said...

Love the pattern and would love to use specific seasonal fabrics in Seasonal Primitive Gatherings.

NatalieK said...

I would choose the Sweetcakes line by Doodlebug Design for Riley Blake. These fabrics would be fun to work with during the dead of winter to create the heart design quilt.
Blessings,

Natasha said...

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!

Rachell said...

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.

Fiber of All Sorts said...

This is exactly the exercise that I need to do more. I'm thinking the magenta's in Notting Hill. LOVELY

natyeb85(at)gmail(dot)com

julieinalaska said...

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.

Digital Grrl said...

I would choose Flirt. It just makes me happy.

Judy1522 said...

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.

Christine Burns said...

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

Melanie said...

I would use Mama Said Sew for this pattern

Kathy said...

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

Some Spa or Seascapes for a blue palette!

JoyceLM said...

Sarah said...

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!
whitelinechasers@yahoo.com

Kathy R said...

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.

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.
