    Trying to design a new quilt for the past few days.. does anyone have a suggestion for a fabric that has a definite striped effect to the design???? I love the fabric, but realize that cutting and layout will be limited, unless I find something that will look wonderful with a one way fabric. Help, please.

    Hi and welcome from the sunny state of Florida!! I have only used striped fabrics for bias bindings. I'm sure a lot of people will have some great suggestions for you!

    Try a patch pattern using colors that match or blend.
    Maybe a solid with another stripe similar to the orginal.
    I love the fabric.

    Is an absolutely amazing fabric. You can make almost anything with it, as long as you are careful what to match it with. It will definitely show better against anything solid or toned batik with no print on it.
