    I thought this fabric would be cool made up into a drunkard's path quilt. It makes me drunk just looking at it. I have two different color. What do you think?

    I had to come back and clarify that I plan to pair these fabrics up with a solid. Probably a blue on one and a brown on the other. Now, what do you think?

    Love the fabrics - don't think I'd like it for a Drunkard's Path, though.

    I think it would be cool, but I would choose one and pair it with a solid maybe burnt orange? Or an orangy batik?

    I think it would look neat if you paired the white with brown stripes to a dark brown and paired the other one to a tan brown. Lay it next to them and see how it look. I think if you just use these to fabrics its going to make people dizzy to look at it. But I do think the fabric would make a great effect.

    Putting them together will probably not give you the contrast the DP suggests. I'd go with either and a solid.

    Oh! I guess I wasn't clear. I meant to pair them up with a solid color and make two separate quilts!
