I love those fabrics. I think they will go together no matter the pattern. Good Luck
Yellow Brick road would be another nice pattern and the yellow would actually pull the quilt together; it is not a free pattern and $7.00 is the least expensive one that I can find!
tried to post photo - didn't work of course! LOL!

Great find! Can't wait to see what you decide to do with it.
Try pulling the top left fabric (dark red/maroon) away from the mix and see what it does for you.
I could see some pretty pinwheels, but I am a very novice quilter myself. I would not include the yellow either. I'll be anxious to see what you come up with.
they are beautiful fabrics-but muted together except the yellow-it really pops
Check out the Morning Star 2 pattern on quilterscache.com. This would be beautiful.
With only a meter total, each of these is smaller than a fat quarter, right? You will not get even a generous lap quilt out of them without adding quite a bit of fabric. I think they will benefit from having one or two solid or mottled blender fabrics mixed in that will help to unify the quilt. If you like a modern look, a shadow box quilt would work well with the entire group (except maybe the intense yellow), using at least 2 blocks from each fabric, a dark gray or black for the shadows and an off white, beige or other very light color for the background. I found a post on this board that shows the basics of the design, but I think usually rectangles look better to me in this design than squares: Shadow box quilt - how big to make the squares and shadow? The first comment has a link to one that was done in rectangles. Have fun creating!
I'm editing to add a link to a video that shows one with mixed sizes, and also explains the process: http://vimeo.com/54613518

We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
