Do You Have That in a Different Color?

Yesterday I posted a photo of my finished Summer Day quilt top. I really like the fabrics I used, but I started thinking about how the same quilt would look using one of Minick and Simpson's red, white, and blue lines, like Prairie Paisley II. Wouldn't that be awesome? Or a Christmas line? Or maybe a line with Autumn colors--those flying geese make me think of Autumn too.


If you live in the US and would be interested winning this gently used pattern, leave me a comment telling me what fabric you'd use. Sinta and Sherri will have the Summer Day Schnibbles parade on May 1st, so we can see what all the other quilters used for theirs. I'll announce a winner of this little drawing on my Thursday blog post, so leave a comment by Wednesday night to be entered.

#1 means I'm not in much luck to win :) but I'd love to make it out of my cottom blossoms layer cakes...I have both the dark and the light layer cakes of the line along with a jelly roll. I've been looking for the perfect quilt to showcase and this pattern would do it! I loved the colors you've used...your quilt can come live with me when it's done being loved at your house

Suzan said...

If I were doing this Schnibble, I think I would use Papillon from 3 Sisters. It is a summery fabric with just a touch of "oo-la-lah"! That being said, I really want to make a red, white and blue quilt but not a big one. You are right. It would be beautiful in Prairie Paisley II. Have you seen their new Independence Trail? It won't be out until mid-summer but beautiful!

Heather said...

I love the new Lily Ashbury line of fabrics but since I have a charm pack of her last line, Summerhouse I might use that one. Lots of bright summery fabrics is what I am tempted by these days.

Michelle said...

Ohhh...I'd love to win that pattern. I've been drooling over everyone's progress on this Schnibble. I have a "Northwoods Botanical" layer cake that would be perfect for a Christmas-y quilt, but I'd also love it in Prairie Paisley. Thanks for a chance to win!

Your quilt looks great, I believe that I would make it out of Fig Trees California Girl...thanks for the chance :)

Diane said...

I would love to win this pattern -- I would make it a scrappy quilt -- I think scrappy quilts are the best

llsandill said...

Ther is no doubt in my mind...STONE HENGE. I have been infatuated with this line and this is the perfect place to use it. Thank for sharing so much

Shelley said...

I have some Kansas Troubles Charm Packs just waiting for that perfect project :) What a nice idea Kim! Passing on the gently used because how many times do we actually make the same quilt twice:)

Donna said...

I am in LOVE with Carrie Nelson's Schnibles patterns. I see Summer Day going into a tropical sunset using Sunrise Sunset BATIKS by Holly Taylor. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy quilting.

Quilter Kim said...

If I won this pattern I think I would probably make it out of some of my Kansas Troubles stash. It wouldn't matter what line as they all go together well. Thanks for the chance at winning.

Martha said...

I would love to try this with California Girl...love the colors, the softness, can't wait to cut into to it. Thanks for the chance to win.

quiltgrammy said...

I think I would use some of my Fall scraps to make it, and have it displayed when all the geese are flying south. Thanks for the chance to win.

Joyce said...

I just ordered Bella Solids, warm pastels. I think I would try it in mostly solids and add just a few prints. Thanks for the chance...

Tiffaney said...

Yours turned out lovely.

I would love to make this one with Tula Pink's Nest.

Quilt Hollow said...

I have the pattern so don't include me in the draw. But your title caught my eye. My mother in law asked me this years ago at Christmas when I handmade her two stuffed kitty things...she had waned them...I made them in a peach color to match her home. In the midst of opening gifts in front of everybody she says....oh can you make these in blue?!!

Cathy said...

I'm not wanting to win anything, but since all I sew with is scraps, it would have to be made out of scraps I already own. Miscellaneous~ ♥♥♥

Maryjo said...

I love this Scnnibble pattern! I would do it in patriotic colors...never tire of those:) Hope I win...I always love what you share!

Phyllis said...

How cute that would look in 30's. It would work in a little girl's room quite well. Love your version, so pretty.

tpott said...

Hi Kim, I have a pile of Fig Tree Butterscotch that might look wonderful. Although I agree with Phyllis, on the last post, 30's fabric would also look great. Good luck all. Thanks Kim. ;-> Toni Anne

Carol said...

I would really like to win this pattern. I have been reading your blog for years and really enjoy it.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Oh. I don't know. I would probably dig deep in my charm pack stash and see what would catch my fancy. But I would love to win just to see what I could do with it. Thanks for the chance!

Anna said...

WOW! Great minds think alike! When I first saw that I was thinking that the layer cake and jelly roll of Minick and Simpson's red, white and blue line would look awesome! Count me in...my rotary cutter is in the ready position!

Josie McRazie said...

I think that is the sign of a great pattern when it can be used with any material!! I love it!!

Anonymous said...

I have seen this pattern in the stores,Carrie Nelson's Schnibles I love the pattern and I would use Blackbird Blueberry Crumbcake. Enjoy reading your blog each day. Sally from Oregon

Tina said...

I bought TONS of Strawberry Fields - I just loved the fabric so I went crazy buying it not really having any plans on what to make with it. I know it isn't original since the pattern was made using that fabric, but I would use Strawberry Fields.

GrammyK said...

I would make this pattern using all of my Minick & Simpson scraps-that way I'd have a nice wall hanging to compliment my Prairie Paisley I & II quilts. Thanks for doing this giveaway-have a great day!!

Jody said...

I would have to use the same fabrics you did because I ADORE your quilt! Thanks for a chance to win the pattern.

Debbie Lou said...

I would love to have a copy of this pattern. It is just so cheery! I think it would look great as a scrappy quilt or maybe some pinks and browns with plenty of dots. Yum! Thanks for the offer.

Miss Jean said...

I have quite a collection of Scottish Terrier 30's fabric so I think I'd give that a try.

Anonymous said...

I would make it using my batiks. Thanks for the chance.

Laura K said...

Oh I have been dying to get this pattern ever since I first saw it! I have a fat quarter stack of Ruby that is just dying to made into this quilt. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

Judy said...

I am a scrappy kind of gal! I would make it using various creams out of my stash for the background and lots of bright yellows, oranges, lime green, purple and pinks.

scottylover said...

Hi Kim! I'd love to see this one done in 30's repros. And I HAPPEN to have a large stash of those! ;) Love how yours turned out. Thanks for sharing!

Amy said...

I think the Blueberry Crumb Cake line would be super cute with it!

Joan and Kevin said...

I would make the quilt out of my favorite fabric "Bliss". Thanks for the giveaway!

Ruby said...

I think it would make a cute Christmas quilt! Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

Anonymous said...

A while back, I bought a lot of "Lovely" by Moda, because I loved it. I have yet to find a pattern to use it on, but Summer Day would definitely make a very good use of all the colors. I'd love to give it a try! Thanks - Sue from MN

Linda said...

If I would win this pattern, I would make it out of California Girl by Fig Tree. This would be the perfect reason to buy the fabric!!

kcenya1950 said...

for me, red, white and blue. then it could go in my "flag" room. i have some of the older minnick and simpson lines and that is probably where i would start. and then mix it up because my favourite thing to do is mix fabric from lots of different lines

Dresden Quilter said...

I have a lot over charm squares in bright summer colours that I would love to use to make this pattern. Thanks for the giveaway.

Suzette said...

I have some Bliss and Ruby scraps, plus a layer cake of Vintage Modern. I might even wait until I can get some Marmalade. I have loved every Bonnie and Camille line so I save even the littlest scraps. Thanks for offering such a cute pattern.

chefpa said...

I would use Civil War fabrics, because I have a lot, and am not using them anymore, but think they'd be easily used up in a scrappy quilt like this one

Anonymous said...

I would make it out of Stonehenge fabric! Thanks in advance, Clare in Vail,Az

Sandy said...

I'm with you Kim, flying geese are a sure thing in the autumn. I would bust some of my earthy tone fabris on this quilt.

Kristy said...

I would use thirty's prints. I love this pattern. It is so bright and cheery! I am looking for a pattern for a baby quilt and I really like this one! Thanks for sharing your "used" patterns-

Hey, I don't have that pattern.....
