I think I'd use Gray Matters by Jacqueline Savage McFee for Camelot Cottons. I would use the yellows for the lighter blocks and the grays for the darker blocks. I think it would be a softer look but still fun.

I would be tempted to try it in something like the smaller prints from Kate Spain's Honey Honey.

I really love the purple and aqua color scheme of the photo quilt on the pattern, so I would stick with those colors. And since I love Riley Blake, I would choose purples and aqua from some of their many lines, like the tone-on-tone dots and stars, and Hipster, and Shuffle.

Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods... BEAUTIFUL!! (editing to add email: stampmeup{at}hotmail{dot}com)

Jeannie D said...

Nature Elements by Pat bravo would be beautiful...the colors are luscious and the pattern is simple but would soften the sharp edges (just a little!) of the quilt design.

mynadala(at)gmail(dot)com

Cheryl Greenleaf said...

I think that Over the Rainbow Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda Fabrics with a black background would be beautiful.

Rosie said...

I think Michael Miller's Fairy Frost range in pinks and peaches, maybe coupled with Kaufman' s sateen in ivory would make a great girly "disco" quilt! I am obsessed with Fairy Frost at the moment!

June D said...

Kona Cotton - ash and charcoal and then two shades of yellow - with a red background would pop with this design! Thanks for putting my name in the drawing!

Kay said...

I really, really love the Eternal Love & Joy fabric & can't wait to get somet to play with.

Lisa Marie said...

The solids really work with this design, but if you wanted to change it up I think Moda Marbles would be great. I like the Citrus Moda Marbles group and would use the two shades of aqua and the two shades of lime. I would use Kona Ash for the background.

Cindy Swoveland said...

This could be an interesting Christmas quilt using Moda solids in reds and greens but I think it would look,pretty using the Hoffman 1895 Bali Taffy batiks...maybe Seaglass for the background, pesto and lime where the aqua is and snake and fern where the purple is.

Justine said...

I've just found a new collection I would love to see used for this pattern, Matilda by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures Fabrics.

I'm liking the Comma series.

Carmen Nuland said...

I think this would look great in Bake Sale by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet for Riley Blake Designs

Sarah_L_N said...

I think this would look great in Simply Color :)

andri. said...

I think solids would represent the pattern best and retain its crispness! I would be using Pure Organic Solid Navy and Kona Corn:D

Joy said...

I'd like to do this with solids that add a little more "texture" so I'd use Michael Miller's Painter's Canvas in blues and oranges.
