    Ok, I have sort of an obsession with red white and blue fabrics. I have already made two quilts with the fabrics. I love them but what do I do with the rest, I love them and they are my favorites, does anyone have ideas as to some pattern that would look good? I have random sizes of each fabric, from fat quarters to yardage. , even tons of scraps. Keep in mind I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination.

    How about scrappy stars, crazy quilt style blocks, disappearing 9 patch?

    so many of these blocks would like great with your red white and blues.

    I had to laugh -- I have a lot of those fabrics :lol:

    I would suggest just a scrappy "block" quilt or maybe some star blocks...

    I like the idea someone else had. Stars would be great. Either white stars against the reds and blues. Or red and blue stars against the white... The fabrics you have tons of, could make borders.

    Have tons of fun,
