    Ok quilting friends. I'm going with the caprter star. Time to finish pressing/starching then start cutting. I will take pics along the way.

    I don't see enough variance in the light/medium/dark. They are all coming across as medium to me. I would vote for the D9P and use darker green fabric for the corners and the orange/yellow with white flowers for the centers or vice versa. I think the darker green and the orangey fabric will play off each other while the blues will soothe the eye except for the blue/white/orange checked fabric. That one is distracting so I would use it in some other type of pattern that needs some pop--maybe a Warm Wishes quilt.

    Oh and is it Dalhia or Dahlia?
    It's dahlia. I don't think your florals will lend themselves well to the Giant Dahlia. Since the fabrics are coordinated, you might look through catalogs (if you have any catalogs, such as Keepsake Quilting). Usually, coordinated fabrics in the catalogs show sample quilts to entice us to buy the fabrics. I get some really good ideas that way.
