I think you should cut into that Art Gallery fabric. I especially like the bundle on the right.

Donna in NW FL said...

Cat in the Hat!

Delores said...

Definitely the first one - love the turquoise and orange! Can't wait to see what you pick.

Saska said...

I like the turquoise (looks red on my screen). Gotta be something bright.

Hannah said...

Definitely the first set.

Sandy said...

Choice #1 really speaks to me this morning! Can't wait to see what you pick.

DianeY said...

I'd personally choose the 1st one, but I'm sure they'd all be terrific!

beeps said...

I'd go with 1 or 3 but 2 could be cool with some fussy cuts!

RenegadeQuilter said...

#1

Jessica said...

Prince Charming, obviously.

Dee's Diary said...

I like the first set best :-)

Cecilia said...

I would choose 3. I just finished a pineapple quilt using different Art Gallery fabrics and it turned out great.

Amber H. said...

First bundle, hands down. I don't know what the pattern looks like, but I think it'll be best.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Let's have some fun with it and go with Cat in the Hat! If not, my second pick is choice #1. I will be picking up these templates and making an iPad cover. I have 2 iPads (one personal/one work) and the work one is just hanging out, free. Needs a little protection. :)

Christy said...

The first one. I love the last one too, but they look so pretty together so they should be in a quilt.

Kathy Grom said...

Cat in the Hat! I think that fabric would be best used on smaller projects.

mascanlon said...

Choice 1...its you!

Jill Chapman said...

I vote for Prince Charming because just because I love Tula Pink

Lindsey F. said...

Choice #1 gets my vote.

Jen said...

I'm obsessed with Art Gallery fabrics, so they get my vote.

Kathie said...

Definitely choice #1

angela said...

I love those first three fabrics together!

Patty said...

#1 is my favorite, I love those colors together.

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

#3 has so many beautiful choices!!

Cristina said...

Ooooh. I'm loving the Art Gallery fabrics!

Deb said...

Choice #1....I love the red! But I noticed another commenter called it orange...so maybe my computer screen isn't showing the correct colors.

Nana Jo said...

I vote for #1!

Mrs. Monkeyboy said...

Totally choice #1!

ylrbmk said...

#1 for sure! I'm NOT a Dr. Seuss fan...even though I'm a teacher.

Aliceart said...

Cut them up! #3's are just waiting to be played with!

Lindsey said...

#1!! I love the prince charming line.

Puffy Fluff said...

I vote for #1, I love Prince Charming! Can't wait to see it!!

Jo Anne said...

My vote goes for #1, with #2 a close second.

Dolores said...

I love No. 1 Combo but the Art Gallery collection has got some great prints too. Cat in the Hat would make me feel like I'm using my kids stuff.

JReeve said...

Choice #1!

iluvmybugs said...

Choice #1...love the colors!!!

Jenn said...

#1 for sure, unless you want to stare at Cat in the Hat every time you use your tablet.

Marcia W. said...

choice one

heartsease54 said...

Number 1 just screams Julie to me, maybe number 2 for your niece and some robot fabric for Elijah. I think the Cat in the Hat looks like it would like to live with your brother!

goecker said...

I really like #1 as a favorite for this project....

plkreuz said...

Group #1 without a doubt.

Rosa said...

Choice 1,love them together.Happy sewing!

JoAnnGC said...

Julie, if I have to pick just one my vote goes to Choice #1. It's modern, bright and my favorite color combination (right now, anyway). I love anything Cat in the Hat but it's not really an original choice. The Art Gallery fabrics are nice but they just don't call out to me as much. Whatever you go with, I can't wait to see it! ~JoAnn

Maureen said...

Choice one is my favoirite followed by number3/ All beautiful fabrics.

Bobbie said...

CAT IN THE HAT is my favorite!

Lisa C said...

Choice #1! Hands down!

Bennett and Graves said...

Cat In The Hat!! Although it looks like us Seuss fans are in the minority.

Lynn said...

#1!#1!#1!

cllcraft said...

Go with the first set - I'm loving the color combo!

Caro said...

I think you should use the Art Gallery fabrics. I think they are more diverse.

Georgette said...

Choice #1 just grabs you. Love the color palette.

natski said...

I love the cat in the hat lots of fun :)

Lindsay said...

I love the Cat in the Hat! ipads are supposed to be for fun, Right?!?!?!

Spoolhardy Girl said...

Tough one! As much as I love Tula and Lizzie, those Art Gallery fabrics are soooo pretty!

Amy said...

My pick would be #1 since it is for a tablet keeper. Just feels right for the project. I think I'd hang on to the fat quarter bundles for a bigger project.

Mouster1 said...

I like Choice number one. The colors are great. Anyone you pick will make a nice tablet keeper. Looking forward to seeing your finished piece.

Stephanie said...

I say the first set! I can't wait to see what you would do with it. Steph

Cheryl said...

I love, love, love choice #1. Can't wait to see what you choose and the finished tablet keeper!!

peacebrook said...

We would want to see anything your tablet would love to call "home"

LisaLisa said...

Love all of them, but I would go with #3!!

Nancy in IN said...

Love the first one. All are mod. My grand would love for her Kindle cover/holder.

JCnNC said...

I love #1 also - just please yourself or make all of them. Would make lovely presents. Judy C

Donna said...

I LOVE the 1st set of fabrics!

TarasStampPad said...

Choice #1 for sure!

Summer Killebrew said...

All three would be super cute, but, yeah, Prince Charming and Outfoxed...so good.

vanos said...

#1 but, a fussy cut with Cat & the Hat would by\e way Fun!

Rhonda G said...

I think set #3. Lots of versatility.

Carole B said...

Choice #1 is my fav. Great mix, and Tula's designs are...serendipitous.

NennieRules said...

I am particular to 2. As a young girl I LOVED Fox in Sox which my dad read to me over and over and over again. he has passed but today is his birthday and that fabric just makes me remember those reading memeories. Happy Birthday Daddy. Lisa

#2 a perfect book!
