    I'd suggest a D9P, however, I don't think I would use all the fabrics shown. I like the purple/green leaf batik, the blue and the mottled blue/yellow, but that's just my preference and I'd use it with a soft blue or green, or possibly a white or cream. I've used batiks and "regular" cotton quilting fabric and since I almost always prewash my fabric, bleeding shouldn't be a problem. The batiks are just slightly heavier than most cotton fabrics and since I don't hand quilt, the higher thread count isn't a problem.

    That was my thought when I saw your fabrics. I'd save that one for another quilt.

    I also think that with only a m. total you will have to add a lot of fabric unless you are doing a mini. So in that case, I would pull both the bright yellow and the burgandy leaf fabrics as they are so much brighter than the softer batik look of the other fabrics.
    If you can find enough blenders to go with them then I think the D9P would work great. Otherwise, I would go for the shadowbox as these are lovely fabrics and would do well showcased.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Agreed, the ferns at the bottom left don't match at all, you should send them to me...

    Love 'em!

    I would vote for the D9P. That yellow would really set it off if used as the center.

    Or you could pull some others from your stash and add to it.
