    I know Bonnie Hunter adds cheddar to hers … and it does pop… but it’s a little overwhelming for me! But I’m not that adventurous with colors, and have a hard time even *wanting* to add pop to things. My poppiest :) is a b&w check with red cherries that I’ve been throwing in from time to time.

  • May 24, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Red always adds a pop as does white.

  • May 24, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Probably red or orange

  • May 24, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win. Those are gorgeous fabrics.

    I use bold colours in my quilts so usually find that adding black makes the other colours really pop.

  • May 24, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Emerald green.

  • May 24, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    the color I would use depends on the colors in the quilt…often the opposite side of the color wheel is where I’d look to start.

  • May 24, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Well, as a new quilter I can’t answer that question but I think a color to bring out the suttle colors in whatever fabrics I am using..does this even make sense? lol


  • May 24, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Thank you for the chance to win such a beautiful fabric!
    To make a certain color really pop, I try to use a complimentary color surrounding it. I especially love teal blue and a deep chocolate, or a dark purple with a light green.

  • May 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    Well, that is a hard question to answer, because “it depends”. Basically, I think I’d add something contrasting, either 1. something from the opposite side of the color wheel or 2. a warm color to a quilt with predominately cool colors or a cool color to a warm color quilt.

  • May 24, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Yes, it depends on the quilt, for example if I were using those beautiful hand dyes you are giving away, I might use white.

  • May 24, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    I would add orange! Orange makes anything pop! And it’s my favourite colour hehehe

  • May 24, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    I would add either black or white since it does draw the eye. Of course, I might also do a nice darker yellow as well.

  • May 24, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Orange or lime green would be my choices. They really pop and I use them a lot.

  • May 24, 2012 at 8:07 pm

    I’m thinking Orange!

    Have a great day,

  • May 24, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    It would depend on the quilt. I would use something opposite on the color wheel usually.

  • May 24, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    To add a little pop I usually use something close to the colors but not so close that it gets lost. If using the colors above I’d put a loud purple or silver.

  • May 24, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    I would use purple. It’s a standout color.

  • May 24, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Since I tend to use a lot of blues, I would use a nice pop of chrome yellow!

  • May 24, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    It’s complementary color on the color wheel. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • May 24, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    It would really depend on the colors in the quilt. I would probably go with a complementary color.

  • May 24, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    I’ve done a couple quilts lately that have had orange/tangerine in and it does make it pop!

  • May 24, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Hehe pink pink! Oh how I love a nice pastel pink! It’s oh so cute! And Thanks so much for the post ^^

  • May 24, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Beautiful fabric! I think orange stands out since it’s a bit out of the ordinary.

  • May 24, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    orange and lime green are my favorites.

  • May 24, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    I would make a quilt pop by adding either yellow or orange, sparingly!

  • May 25, 2012 at 12:10 am


  • May 25, 2012 at 12:45 am

    I am in to yellow for some sizzle!

  • May 25, 2012 at 1:38 am

    I like just a touch of bright yellow or orange.

  • May 25, 2012 at 1:43 am

    Red. I think it looks fantastic in just about any quilt.

  • May 25, 2012 at 1:49 am

    I’d use a bright blue or turquoise to add a pop of colour :)

    kate1485 at

  • May 25, 2012 at 1:52 am

    If the colours are already bright, I would use something neutral like linen or osnaberg to make the bright colours pop

  • May 25, 2012 at 2:21 am

    I love to use a bright pink to stand out from everything else!

  • May 25, 2012 at 2:44 am

    Yellow, red, blue, grey, white, orange, teal… many choices!
    Thank you for the opportunity(;

  • May 25, 2012 at 2:52 am

    Thank you for a lovely give away! I need always some white, but if that doens’ count as a colour then some drops of orange are also needed!

  • May 25, 2012 at 3:37 am

    I think red is a good pop color. But I guess it really depends on the quilt.

  • May 25, 2012 at 3:59 am

    It depends a lot on the color scheme, but I like strong colors like yellows or oranges.

  • May 25, 2012 at 6:45 am

    The first color that comes to mind is red, but it does not always match the rest. I believe that a complimentary color can really make the rest stand out. Sometimes, all it needs is a little white. Those fabrics are gorgeous!!!!!!!

  • May 25, 2012 at 7:28 am

    I love a pop of color. I think either red or yellow would wake things up. Yummy fabrics in your giveaway. Thanks.

  • May 25, 2012 at 8:58 am

    I like to add red to my projects to give a pop to them. And sometimes I use a bright white on white!

  • May 25, 2012 at 9:30 am

    I would had a bright Hawaii ocean blue!

  • May 25, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I would use a pink fabric! It works with almost everything and it makes it pop! By the way it´s my favorite among all colors. ;-)

  • May 25, 2012 at 10:24 am

    Red. Thanks for doing this giveaway! :)

  • May 25, 2012 at 10:27 am

    I usually add yellow. thanks for the chance to win the beautiful dyes.

  • May 25, 2012 at 10:45 am

    I love the way black looks with a quilt that uses bright colors. Thank you for the giveaway.
