I love Key West! I'm a Florida resident, but much further north, but I'd move there, given the chance! And I adore tropical prints, and I sew, baby, sew!

Oh my! That is truly beautiful & would work well here at home in Hawaii! With that said, my favorite spot is where I go after vacation, and that's home!

The fabric is SO beautiful! And it makes a lovely skirt! Maybe a dress would be just as nice!

After seeing that fashion shot, all I can think of is making a sleeveless wrap dress! It would be gorgeous. :)

Nice Paradise photo and the tropical quilt is awesome. Our favorite vacation is a Cruise. A couple years ago we went on a cruise to Carribean for Christmas.

My favorite vacation spot is Rome. Not exactly a tropical paradise, but there is a lushness to their gardens that puts my California "Mediterranian" garden to shame!

We live in the deep south, so my favorite vacation spot is in the mountains. It's always fun to go to the mountains and enjoy the different terrain and the cool weather, Thanks for the great giveaway!

At present my favourite holiday spot is having visitors at home enjoying our view over the Derwent River and Storm Bay in southern Tasmania. I can see this fabric on my outdoor table - placemats maybe.
