i've been looking for the perfect pattern to make a christmasy quilt out of Winter's Lane... and I can really see it with this one!

Podunkpretties said...

Of course Bake Sale by Lori Holt for Riley Blake, every pattern would look great with this line!

Maegan Heise said...

Indigo Crossing for an old fashion look with beautiful colours! heisem@hotmail.com

Suzanne said...

I think In from the Cold by Kate Spain would be great for this pattern.

Robyn said...

I'm thinking Christmas and Nancy Halvorsen's HO HO HO let it snow

Melissa Oyler said...

As usual, I couldn't choose just one. So, I'm going with either Calliope OR Winter's Lane. ;)

Michelle said...

I would use Happy go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille. It would be so fun,

Lisa Marie said...

I would like to see this in PB&J. One of the Grunge prints would be a great background.

mikigaelen said...

Actually, I think I would use Architextures for this one. Give it a modern twist while still keeping it somewhat neutral colors (blacks, grays, and white).

Jess @ The Elven Garden said...

I would love to see this using Acacia by Tula Pink - I know it's not released yet, but I think the colours would look fabulous in this design!

Jennie said...

I must have Christmas quilts on the brain, because I'd love to make it with Aspen Frost. It would be so pretty and fresh.

Susan Smith said...

Oh, so many would look great in this line! Indigo Crossing comes to mind first but a happy line like Bonnie and Camille's Marmalade would be great too!

DebrafromMD said...

I like the pinks and browns of Chocolate Sundae Batiks for this pattern.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

How about French General Favorites by French General.

Billy'sgirl said...

I think this pattern would be perfect to showcase Strawberries, Blueberries, and Chocolate by Judie Rothermel.
mortonkarena@gmail.com

Mama Spark said...

I think this would be great using Joel Dewberry's new line Bungalow. I would use a solid for the background. All those delicious colors would be great in this quilt!

Debi said...

I would love Winters Lane!

Kim said...

I love Textures by Angela Walters.

Olga Kolgan said...

Aspen Frost would be nice;) kolgao@mail.ru

KMSC said...

Since Camille's interview about the new Happy-go-lucky fabric line was still in my head, and I love every line Bonnie and Camille have designed, I will have to go with Happy-go-lucky.

Gill said...

I'd choose 'Happy go Lucky'

Marie Chat said...

I love French General and so I think these lovely units in this pattern would be enhanced by Esprit de Noel to make a super Christmas or anytime quilt. Thanks!

Marcia W. said...

I like the original fabric choice with the dramatic dark fabrics. Yet, in keeping with the contest of choosing a new line, I would choose the collection Mill Book Series circa 1835. The quilt design would be a lighter sweet looking vintage quilt. I also like that this is a collection for a cause. An alternate collection is Fig Tree's Avalon, which I like because of the colorways and old-fashioned appearance. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

The Reader said...

well, this will sound crazy, but I think the Fabulous Felines metallic Paw Print yardage, in the assorted bright colors, would look great as the stars. Set it against a black background and you've got fireworks in a night sky for 4th of July or New Year's Eve. Beautiful, fun twist on this lovely pattern!
