I've seen a couple of people say they have matched the various Fiestaware colors with the Kona cottons which would give me the fabrics but I would like to find some fabric line that incorporates some prints using those colors. You folks always have such wonderful ideas so I thought I would ask and get your thoughts and suggestions.
    I grew up with Fiestaware (the original) and I love that Southern Girls Quilt. It is wonderful.

    That quilt is fabulous! You can get samples of solids from a lot of fabric lines and find the colors you'd most like to use. Buying a charm pack of solids might work too. Sandy Klop actually designed a quilt for her American Jane collection that is named Fiesta Wear. I found a photo of it on Amazon:

    The quilt and instructions are also in her book "Quilts for All Seasons" for only a few dollars more. http://www.amazon.com/American-Janes...or+all+seasons

    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.

    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.
