  7. Blues and greens, always. I like the dark background, and I’d make the house light blue. Green for trim. thanks!

  8. I like the range and depth of colour in the jewel toned set best. After considerable thought (!), I think they would work well on a cherry red background, with white eaves. I love the design, thanks for the giveaway!

Thank you for being a part of the SMS Giveaway Day and giving us this chance to win a copy of the magazine and the pillow fabric. Those pillows will make a nice decorative touch to a couch or even a bedroom.

  15. I really like the jewel tones and would probably use blue background for one and, as you did, add gray for the other. Your fabrics are lovely.

  16. Jewel tones! I would use the lime and dark blue for backgrounds. Love the images on the pillows because I am in a mid century home.

  17. Kitchen Blues, and would do the teal and lime green. I like the colors you did and not sure what the names of them are so go with that. =)

  18. Kitchen blues in your original colorway-can’t improve on your choices-just lovely pillows!

  24. Autumn Splendor is my favourite, especially red and yellow – first two on the left. Beautiful!

  25. Love the jewel tones. I would choose blue and the green as backgrounds. Thanks for the giveaway.

  26. Congrats on being published again!
    I love the Sedona palette and a grey background.

  27. I love your original color pallette. The chartreuse color is so amazing. For backgrounds, I’d either pick a tan/brown or a red, because thosse pillows would be on my couch, and my decorating scheme is primary colors and brown neutrals.

  28. I would choose to make it the same as you did with the kitchen blues and the gray background. Thanks for the chance to win–looks like a great pattern!

  29. The jewel tones are gorgeous! I’d use blue for the background, and have a little yellow house with a red roof 🙂

  30. Thanks for the giveaway – your cushions are great! I’d choose the brights rainbow and I’d use the bright pink and turquoise for the main colours – my favourite combination 🙂 x

  31. I love the kitchen blues group. The grey pillow with the dark blue house is a combination I especially like.

  32. I love these pillows! They are so adorable! If I won I would definitely have to go with the rainbow palette the first one without the purple. As for the background, I myself would probably go for Essex Yarn Died Linen in black, just because I love the way these colors would pop off the darkness and the texture would be amazing!!!!!

  33. I would definitely pick the rainbow. I love happy bright colors! I would use a white background or maybe a gray.

  34. I’d pick the jewel tones bundle and black and white for the backgrounds.

  35. I want . . . no, please make it . . . oh, gosh, I’m having a hard time choosing — all of your fabrics are so luscious. I’d probably choose the colors you’ve used, substituting a light tan or cream for the grey. Possibly. I can’t tell what looks good without seeing them in the “real.” I’d probably let you choose. I kind of like the Autumn, but I like the pop of the yellow or lime (see, can’t tell what color it really is) in your originals. Now, I’m gonna settle on SURPRISE ME with something you like that you might have chosen as an alternate colorway.

  36. I really love the Autumn Splendor palate and would probably use the two blues/ aquas as the background/main color. Thanks for a great giveaway! Love the patterns!

  37. Sedona and I would use the tan as background. It’s funny, I was always a blue/purple/rose kind of girl but in my older age have really turned to the 1970’s appliance color palette! lol Must be hormones or lack thereof! Thanks for the chance to enter your giveaway!
