    Hello again,
    So, I have this 3 Stooges fabric that I found at the Maine Quilt Show recently and this DH who loves them. What would you use for a simple pattern that would show off as much fabric without being too busy? The fabric is like a photo collage with different scenes from the shows - black and kind of cream colored.
    Thanks for your help,

    PS Shh, it's a secret. After all of these years, it would be nice to surprise him with something.

    Warm wishes is a pattern that you can use for a focus fabric. You should be able to find the patten by googling it.

    There is a quilt book called "Too Pretty to Cut". Maybe you could find some of those patterns on line. I have a fabric that is a pastel oriental floral. Fell in love with it at Keepsake Quilting I don't know how many years ago. It was too pretty to cut and I didn't know what I would do with it. I got the book I mentioned above and it gave me some ideas. Still haven't cut it though. I want some coordinating fabrics, and so far have found only one. I am still on the hunt for a couple more.

    My husband is also a HUGE Stooges fan. I'm not going to even tell him about stooges fabric. He would want me to hunt it down and make him something with it. It will be interesting to what you come up with. Please, post pictures.
