I love Cuzco by Kate Spain for Moda, hope to win the gift certificate!

Podunkpretties said...

Just because its spring time, I'd like Lori Holts Bake sale bundle. What a cute pallet of cheery fabrics!

Deborah said...

I would use Comma for this quilt design. I was going to choose just black and white but then decided a bit of colour would look good in there too!

Anonymous said...

Cosmo Cricket fabrics always make interesting quilts and other projects. So I am choosing their Odds & Ends line for this quilt.

B Greene said...

I think I would use PB&J from Basic Grey for this pattern. I think the contrast and the colors would work well with this design.

pkmegs said...

I would use Carnaby Street by Pat Bravo, just love the combinations of colors and prints would be great.

M.W. said...

I would use Noteworthy.
Shawn

trish said...

Lori Holts Bake Sale would be super cute!! :0)

Tammy said...

I'm thinking this would make an awesome holiday quilt made out of the
Nancy's Holiday Favorites Collection by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex Fabrics

Patti said...

As we are still freezing here in Wisconsin I would love a hint of spring with the Chinoise collection from Clothworks!!

Amy Farrington said...

Thinking of the ocean and how the quilt resembles life preservers. I would choose 'Seascapes by Deb Strain'.

lindav said...

I am loving Amy Butler's Alchemy for this quilt

Tamie said...

I'd love to try this in Noteworthy.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Reminds me of marble flooring - Cobblestone Stonehenge by
Northcott Fabrics

Reb Thack said...

Pb&j by basic grey. I think it would make a great baby quilt - especially as none of my friends are finding out genders!

D7quilt@aol.com said...

I think a beautiful quilt could be made using Art Gallery Textures, adding in Coordinating solids from Art
Gallery's Pure Element Solids, and using Textures Pearl Swirl for the background fabric.

Infinity Quilter/Knitter said...

I would use Flirt. The colors are nice and bright and just make me smile.

Tracey Holzer said...

I would use Over the Rainbow Batiks by Laundry Basket. The dark, rich batiks would stand out nicely against a white solid or tone on tone.

Carrie P. said...

I think this quilt would look good done in Earth 2012 Kaffe Fassett

DebrafromMD said...

I would choose Me and My Sister Designs' Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle Ticklish Collection with a white background. Those colors would be great for a kids quilt.

Beth in TN said...

I am trying to picture it using Mocha Kiss batiks. I think the pink/brown combo for the rings would be pretty with the creamy batiks as the non-ring sections.

Cindy said...

I cannot believe I haven't seen this pattern before. Ooh, I like it - a lot! I'd definitely use Double Chocolat by 3sisters for this beauty!

Billy'sgirl said...

Love this pattern. A fabric I've been wanting to use is Judie Rothermel's Strawberries, Blueberries and Chocolate. I think this would be a perfect pattern to show off the small prints. Hope I win!

Pinspot said...

This would be great in as a boy quilt, so I'm thinking Oink a Doodle Moo.

Gretchen said...

I'd go for Jubilee by Bunny Hill for soft colors or Chinoise by Studio K for Clothworks Fabrics for a brighter look.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Great pattern! I have fallen in love with Calliope by Cyndi Walker. Love all the color ways.

Donna~~ said...

I like PB&J for this quilt. But for an entirely different look, I'd like to see it in the giant ginghams. Love that Oink a Doodle Cow Hide print--not for this, but what a great fabric!

Laurel said...

I think this could be soft and pretty in Indigo Crossings.

~Diana said...

Notting Hill...definitely!

allierae said...

This would look great in 2wenty Thr3e with a black background to really make it pop!

Cecilia said...

I would use It's A Shore Thing. These resemble life rings.

Maya said...

It's lovely pattern! I think it will be nice with Angela Pingel's Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle. I love this coloures and prints.

Oh my goodness. Once again great minds think alike. I love this and would use double chocolat for this. My mom sewcindy and I definitely have the same taste. Thanks so much

I would use Odds and Ends. That would make a great summer quilt.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Nita said...

Hummm...I had to really think about this one. I think La Belle Fleur would suit this pattern perfectly. I'd use a variety of the red-toned prints from the collection, and La Belle Fleur Pearl Luiz Yardage for the background.

~Michelle~ said...

I think the new Calliope collection would look awesome with this pattern. Or I could be biased since that's my baby's name ;)

Madeleine said...

I would do this in Simply Color!

Alisa @ KnitSpinQuilt said...

I think I'd do it in some of the more saturated prints from Shelburne Falls, and use Willow sparse floral as the backing.

Karen said...

I think it would look good with Kissing Booth by Basic Grey.

Ali said...

Im not going with my usual answer, since I think PB&J from Basic Grey would look really good with this particular pattern!

bee said...

this would be awesome in Comma by Zen Chic.

Rita McCart said...

I believe that I would use the Love & Liberty collection. Staying with the pink fabrics for the background squares and the wide cream for the other. I think would give it a very elegant and antique look. :)

Sallie said...

Independence Trail by Minick & Simpson.

Marie Chat said...

I think Love & Liberty by Robyn Pandolph would be a grand choice. It's so dreamy and has such a vintage feel that I believe it would be a good fit for this pattern.

Suzie H said...

I would use PB&J. It would look amazing with this pattern!

Beezus said...

Notting Hill for me. I probably wouldn't use the large flower print, because I would save that for a different project. But all those other, coordinating prints would really shine in this pattern.

Mara said...

I would use Newsprint Spot On Fat Quarter Bundle and the Cherry Fizz Spot On Fat Quarter Bundle from Kaufman Fabrics to make this too cute quilt!

Anne said...

There's a very strong construction element to the design that makes me think of robots so I would choose the new Robotics line by Birch Organics. Might not be in keeping with the name but it does fit the design. http://www.fatquartershop.com/store/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?Shopper_id=96283111151209628&Store_id=499&page_id=23&Item_ID=81300&Parent_Ids=
