My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide.
I have a not yet finished "Fiestaware" quilt, that is a Broken Dishes pattern. It was a blocks made by guild members from one of our block of the month programs, and I won the blocks. The only requirement was a white background and Fiestaware colors. I found fabric with cups and saucers on it for the borders. Someday it will be finished, but so far it looks great!
Broken Dishes was the pattern I was going to suggest. Love the idea of the dish print for borders.
Oh My , you've gotta' check out this pattern. I think it's beautiful! And you could personalize it, if you knew what colors of Fiestaware she likes!
here's where you can find the free pattern:

I really like your table runner lalaland. So many good ideas - I'm starting to get confused. I've looked at the history of the colors Tanya L and I see what you mean about how they've changed over the years. I haven't seen her collection. Her mom thought it would be a good idea/theme for a quilt for her. I think if I do something using a variety of colors that it will work for her. - Thank you to everyone for your ideas and expertise.
A designer on spoonflower.com is selling fabric to make an apron (http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/267593). They print on Kona fabric. It's a bit pricey, but you might be able to get a little bit of the fabric and match Kona solids to it to make a quilt.

Just remember that Fiestaware doesn't have any floral pattern on it , Just those wonderful vibrant colors. If you want to add florals, maybe in the border of backing. Just a thought.

"Amish with a Twist" pattern and kit has the bright colors. hancocks-paducah.com has the kits in different colorways. Good luck.
