I must go out and get that magazine. That's a cute quilt and I bet it is cute in scrappy colors too. My favorite color is red, but I don't make quilts in any color, just use what I have on hand. Congrats on your magazine quilt!

Looks like a great quilt to make for a girl - like one going off to college. Need to make several of these in the next few years so would love to get the pattern.

I don't have a favorite color for quilting yet. However, I do like Black/white/Gray and yellow together. I just "liked" you on Facebook.
Hope to win this Magazine so I could make your quilt also.
