Cameo sunshine Rose by Tanya Whelan might be my first choice, but of course that is scheduled to change depending on my mood the day I start it...

Sherry Von Fumetti said...

Love your selection of low volume text fabrics in your block. Something from Heather Ross might give this block a soft look. svonfumetti(at)yahoo(dot)com

Jeanne Gwin said...

I can't decide on one fabric line, it would change in a nanosecond anyway. Love what you did, thanks for sharing and congrats for making the magazine.

Elizabeth said...

I would most likely use the architextures that I have been hoarding. I really like the low volume look that you created.

Rosa said...

Fabulous block!
Can´t choose only one so I choose the last one I bought,marmalade.

Maria said...

I like the fabric you used!

Linda E in AZ said...

I'd use some beautiful batiks from my stash. Neat idea of yours!
thanks

Jacklynn said...

I would use the new Alison Glass text prints and some coordinating Kona solids, mixing up the text prints so they go every direction. Thanks for the give away!

DianeY said...

The Botanics you used look so perfect, I'd have a hard time using anything else! If anything, I'd probably just add some other text type fabrics

Katkat said...

I love what you did with the bright yellows! I'd like to do something like that combination!

29820a10-3a35-11e2-8d1d-000bcdcb471e said...

Oh I love your block and the many ways to play with that you have shown - not sure exactly which fabrics I would use - but thinking I would raid my stack for some of those hoarded bundles of fabrics - I love the many looks of your block..
Thanks for the chance to win.

Anita said...

The fabric you used is just fabulous, I wouldn't change it. Love your block!

Becca said...

I would follow you and use Architextures. That first block just drew me in.

Cathy B said...

I use fabric my stash. Great Block, congratulations on having it in the magazine. blaukat@hickorytech.net

Deanna W said...

The architexture fabric is great the only other kind I might use is a fabric with words all over. They are sometimes hard to use! Hoping to receive a copy of the magazine!!

sandi said...

Not sure what I would use for this block. Your choice is beautiful! I would probably do something with pinks/browns as that is my fave right now. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the magazine.

Jacqueline said...

I would use Midwinter Reds by Minick & Simpson because I am in the Christmas spirit right now.

Thanks for a chance

Karen Pryce said...

I have a large stash so would use fabric from my stash.

Martina said...

I would use some blue and cream fabrics from my stash! Love your block. Very cool! Congratulations!

Lani Glasser said...

I love your block, simple yet very striking! Not sure what fabric I will use but I am definitely making this one into a quilt!

Kathy Sue said...

I have some black and whites - and then introduce a color maybe some green or yellow. I sew your block the very first day and fell in love. I am so going to have to go buy the issue Tuesday. kathleendotlutzatcomcastdotnet

vwlady said...

I think I would use some of my collection of batik fabrics. I like the contrast between the neutrals & the brights...very nice!

suz said...

this would be fun using light batiks - it's a great block and has a ton of potential. I could also see reversing it - using darker scraps for the pieced strips and lighter colors for the single-pieced strips.

Siobhan said...

The Architextures is really cool. I might also try it with Ecclectic Elements for a more masculine look. This is a block I think my hubby would love!

Rachel said...

Shades of black and grey and a single purple shade

bee said...

cute block! i'd go with one of my mini charm packs like central park or wren & friends with some solids.

Susan Wilkerson said...

I love the mini charm packs, any would do for me!

lindaroo said...

I love the architextures, but I'd take the opportunity so use up some of the cream/beige/tan fabrics that have accumulated in my stash. Maybe pair them with some browns for a root beer float color story!

MadHatter said...

I would like using Kona solids. So pretty and so many shades to choose from. Congrats on getting your block in Quiltmaker 100 Issue #8 and thank you for chance to win !

Hanke said...

I would use my stash and some solids. Love your block! Thanks for the chance!

Michele said...

assorted blacks and then strips of bright fabrics. looks like a great block to play with. thanks

Heather said...

I would make it with scrappy neutrals and darker strips from my stash. Cute block!

Paul Hallinger said...

Torn between agf minimalista or windhamfabrics collage. Mix in kona solids and set! Nice block!

Quilting Tangent said...

I like the gray and blues you used. 24Tangent@gmail.com

bertiequilts said...

I too would use Kona solids as they really set off the block motif.. particularly the one where you show the different bright colors.

Lorri Schuller said...

I use alot of scrappy quilts- so a rainbow of colors would be my choice

capitolaquilter said...

I would make it with Barcelona so I'd have an excuse to go buy some!

JanineMarie said...

Hmmm, such a simple block, but so many possibilities. I think maybe Asian taupes for the background squares and indigos for the stripes.

sue said...

I would probably make a scrappy quilt with a variegated black/gray fabric to provide some cohesion and unity.

Laura said...

I would use some orange and greys I think. Thanks for the chance!

samtaylorcjsmimi said...

Congrats on getting published - I love your block! I think I'd have to go through my stash before making a decision on what to use but I love what you used! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Diane said...

I think it would be very pretty done in cheerful 30's fabrics.

Stitches said...

hmmm, I wonder how it would look in reproduction fabrics?

Wendy said...

Very cool ... I would have to use Sweetwater's Road 15 fabric line for this block ... kinda appropriate :) Julie I love your work and thank you so much for sharing your creativity!!

Joan said...

So many possibilities! I would use Kona solids. Thank you for sharing and for the chance to win.

Elaine said...

I think I would do it scrappy and solid!

KT said...

LOVE this block! I would use it to make a quilt

Big Martha said...

I have some vintage sheet music print that would look lovely with black. Congrats on this honor!

Kathy S. said...

I would use greens and blues from my stash to make it look like sea glass colors. Maybe I would throw in some orange now and then.

Maxine said...

I would use 30's prints and pastels.

Margo Scott said...

I'm. A scrappy person so I would dig deep into ny stash.

juceyj03 said...

Oh I totally love your block! I would have to go scrappy with this block because I always have a hard time picking just one fabric!
Thanks for the chance, Jessica
juceyj03@gmail.com
FINGERS CROSSED:-)

Lori said...

congrats on being published. This is a great block. So versatile. I would use blue solids and tan solids and sea shells for fabrics.

TC in Idaho said...

First congrats on getting into the 100 Blocks. I am new to quilting so I do not know a lot of the designers or designs. But I would make it in flowers and solids.

Joanna said...

I don't know what fabric I would use. I think your block would work well in a Quilt of Valor, so I would make the stripes in red and white or just reds and the squares in blues and white, and then use the first configuration you show.

Terry H. said...

Scrappy with neutral plaids and bright floral prints. Love the possibilities with this block. Thanks for the chance to win.

carolann said...

I would use some Tula Pink fabric! carolann427@aol.com

Kathy Pfaltzgraff said...

Julie, I was hoping for a hexagon design, but that would take your neat ruler, so your design solved that problem. Right now I am using your ruler, not looking at new fabric. Kathy

Barb said...

Fowl Play would make some fun runners and placemats using your block!

Lisa Marie said...

I would like to try this with squares of bright yellows from my stash and strips of black and grey solids.

Carol Thomas said...

Batiks! They are so easy to work with. I love your selection of fabrics. Sadly most of our quilt shops nearby have closed so it's tougher to pull fabrics.

Kathryn Knox said...

Congratulations! I would use Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille. Thanks for this chance.

Andresa Strahm said...

I like the gray/neutral effect of your textures fabrics. I'd probably go with a light to medium gray print there and use solid or tone-on-tone purples and burgundy - rich, dark jewel tones.

Gill said...

Great block - I'd love to make it in rainbow colours!

~Kris~ said...

I love the fabric you chose. It looks so nice in the linear style. I think black and white with red stripes or grey stripes would look great too.

Jeanne said...

Great block! I would use the same fabric you did.

JoyceLM said...

Love your block. I'd make mine really scrappy. Maybe with blues, greens & purples in my stash. Thanks.

Kathy L said...

Love your blue version.

Lee Ann L. said...

Sunkiss (out of print now) is a line of fabric I might use. I have layer cake and two fat eight collections of this line. What do you think?

Congrats on getting into the magazine!

Kim said...

Some beautiful batiks!

Hildy said...

I love your block! I think I would use some low volume scrap (as you did) and perhaps some floral designs for the strips.
hildy(at)ebertzeder(dot)de

Deborah DeBerry said...

I'm not really sure what line I would use. I would probably make it scrappy, but keep it low volume colorwise, and then raise volume with sashing exactly as you did. The blue version is really pretty.

Donna said...

Love the block. I'm thinking black, white, red and a little yellow thrown in.

Sandy said...

Having seen how you use Architextures for Robert Kaufman, it makes me want to try Tim Holtz's new line, Eclectic Elements.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I would use scraps from my stash. I love seeing the possibilities for the block--lots of fun!

Jackie said...

I would dig out my scraps for this block, bright colors, maybe a different color for each block, and then use black and grey for the stripes.

Charlene McCullough said...

I'm a flower and vintage pattern person, so I'd likely use one of them. I don't yet have the creative intuition, but I will. Love the block anyway. Thanks for the giveaway.

pasqueflower said...

I like your fabric choices a lot--but I think I might use batiks in mostly blue and aqua.

Linda said...

I always try to shop my stash and rarely use one fabric line. I would use a variety of brights in the colors of the rainbow plus black.

Dorothy H said...

I would love the Kaufman fabric you have used! Very bright and playfull!

Mel said...

I would use Kona solids and fabric from my stash. I love what you did with the blues. But I think I would do this in pinks, fushias and oranges. Thank you and congratulations!

Margaret Andrews said...

I would use 1930 fabrics and make an old fashioned block.

Andee said...

I would use Chicopee!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

I would use solids for the stripes like you did and some kind of polka dot or check for the little squares so it would make a 'texture'.

Karen Burton said...

Wow, I can see this block in black and whites with primary color bars or maybe florals with greens.

Bailey said...

Black and white with scrumptious charms

M.W. said...

I would use the sun prints by Alison Glass and some solids.

Shawn

lotsofteapots said...

I think my MIL would love this quilt in greys and reds!

Teresa Stanulis said...

I have a new fat quarter bundle of Bluebird Park. I think I would use that to make your block!

tstanulis@mac.com

darla dishman said...

Congrats for making QM's 100. I would use scraps with strips and solids or solids and flower prints. So many ideal to work with.

Gwen Wehner said...

I love the zigzag setting with the brights! But, just to be different, maybe I'd try floral shirtings with brown and tan!

Sallie said...

I like Architecture with the blues that you did.

Vicki H said...

I would probably use greens and purples from my stash. Great block.

Jenny L said...

I've been making a couple quilts in purple and grey, and it seems like that combination of colors would really work for this block. It's a really cool block!

tdimi77 said...

I would use Batiks.. thanks for doing this giveaway!! tyned@hotmail.com

Nancy M. said...

i would like to try greys and blacks with some teal thrown in for my grnad daughters "new" bedroom. I think this pattern would be bold and modern for her. thanks for the chance to win.

Connie Wood said...

Assorted black and white prints and toss in reds.

shawn said...

I like blacks, grays and add another color for the pop!!

Dawn Frisch said...

Oh Julie! I just love your block! I would make it exactly as you have because my husband works as a CAD (computer aided drafting) manager for an architect! This would be the perfect fabric line to make a wall hanging for the office! I just love your work and follow your blog all the time.
Congrats on the block being in the magazine and your engagement too!
Happy quilting

Audrey said...

Great block, Julie. I can not decide on a fabric line I would choose but when I first saw your block I thought of light batik scraps that I have. Paired with some jewel tone blender batiks instead of the solids and I think your block would create a knockout quilt.

WhoMom said...

I would choose a small bundle from Tula Pink and some Kona Solids and try to make a quilt block that was a nice as your sample!

Regina said...

oh that's hard. I think I might go bolder/scrappy where you have the neutral, and neutral in the stripes...

giddy99 said...

I have a couple of Kona Jelly strip rolls that I would use - I could combine that with my two Simply Style charm packs, too! Voila!

teachpany said...

I love the rainbow solids and the fabric you used. Maybe some kiddie prints, and solids, to make a fun I Spy style quilt?

JANET said...

I would make one like your primary colors, zig zag quilt, but I think I would do the space between the yellow bar, green bar, etc in different light shades of same primary color. It would bring out the chevron pattern.

Lynn W said...

Kona cotton in black, white and red.

Lisa said...

I would use a combination of Kona Solids and Carnaby Street!

Unknown said...

I don't know what fabrics I would use, but I love your block and your examples. The 3rd quilt design really strikes me. I think doing a quilt using solids would be great! I also like the combination of red and tan and think that would work great for your 1st design. I am a reall fan of scrappy quilts so maybe a scrappy red and tan. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Browns, Reds, and cream

WoolenSails said...

I like the idea of the lights that you used, but I am thinking about using varying shades of denim with that, fun guys quilt.

goecker said...

I would like to use Collage to make this great quilt, love the block and color choices you used too.

Sowing Stitches said...

I have a MOUNTAIN of scraps that need to be used, I would most certainly use my scraps and then for the solid 'bars' I will use low volume prints I've been saving for something special. :)

pbfab said...

I think this would look really nice with some patterned Batiks mixed solids

ChooChoo Skadoo said...

I think that this would look cute with Halloween fabric. Like Too Cute Too Spook by RBD.

Cynthia H said...

I don't know exactly which fabric I would choose but this block was phenomenal! Thanks for sharing.

I have a mini charm of Surrounded by love, it would be gorgeous mixed with kona pinks or some text fabrics and turned into some pillows, really pretty!

If the block is made with 2 and a half inch strips, I would use a jelly roll from my stash.

Connie said...

I have a stash of black and whites I have been wanting to use...with red bars. Thank you for Sharing.

Madeline said...

Just Quilt It said...

What a fun block! I have lots of little flower prints in my stash that would work just great with this pattern!

I think a scrappy low volume with shades of solids would work well with your block.

Actually that Architextures fabric and your inspirational design could be perfect. A friend, who used to live next door and their "little" girl came over every day to visit. Well, their little girl just graduated college with a degree in architecture. Seems like this fabric and your design would be absolutely perfect for her. Thanks for inspiring.

I think I would use the text prints from Allison Glass' Sun Prints. Congratulations on being included in the magazine.

janie said...

nice modern block, I would use scraps for this block.

Louise said...

I'm more of a traditionalist, so I think I'd use different color homespuns (or plaid shirts!) with different solid color stripes.

lauraluvsloons said...

I would use Sweet Serenade.

Elaine Howard said...

Some Michael Miller Krystal, it's a great selection of colors with some white from Kona maybe or even one of the MM lights with brights.

Congratulations on being one of the 100 chosen, but so different from other patterns.

Love your patterns,but haven't tried any of the ones using the sidekick ruler on my wish list for next year.

Susan said...

I would use a fish print with blues & greens batiks. Your block is certainly doable and I will be doing it!

wendy said...

I think I would use Scrumptious just not sure what colors I would choose for the strips in between. I do have some other mini charms in my stash...maybe I should get them out and get busy! Thanks!

Marie said...

I have a thing for the
Sunnyside Mini Charm Pack
by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics.


Marie WIlliams
pinkmoonbeams@yahoo.com

Back Porch Extras said...

I would just go through my stash and use what I have and make it a scrap quilt. Congrats on getting it in Vol.8.

scottylover said...

I would use up some of my black & white scraps and pick a solid, probably a red or gold for the solids.

Sandy A

annmarie said...

Great modern block. I think I'd like to see it mad e dots in between the solid strips - like Ta Dots from Michael Miller.

banjo795 said...

I'd like to try your block reversed - solids in the squares and a bold print for the lines.

Maureen Williamson said...

What a neat block! I think I would need to go stash diving to decide what fabric I would use. Off the top of my head, I have some French General fabric that would like nice with a sold cream. Thanks for a chance at the give-away.

madquilter65 said...

Michele BaDour said...

I love the soothing blues & the mini charms that you used...perfect! I'm not particularly good at putting fabrics together, but I can use sincere flattery with the best of them :-)

Marcia said...

I love moda, not sure what line!

Jeanne in Ohio said...

I'm on a scrappy role so it would have to be shades of red and grren for Christmas.

gramma sue said...

I'd probably use stash fabrics....or maybe even scraps that I've been collecting for years.

Ruth Wohlgemuth said...

I'd like to use geometric designs with solids or monochrome batiks

Beth said...

I think your block would be pretty in batiks. It is such a subtle block, with a lot of possibilities.

virgdale said...

Always seem to like red, white and blue! Nice, easy block!!

Rachell said...

I would probably use a cute print and fussy cut squares....like a Christmas print collection, and solids in red and green to match. like In From the Cold by Kate Spain

dcFfLy80wJbYSTL0EVonGf_lvA-- said...

I would make a pillow for my brother's new home. He is not the decorator type. It's pretty bare bones at his house. ll_gee (at) hotmail dot com
