    Ideas Needed for pink and brown print quilt

    I have a lot of pink fabric I purchased for $18.00. Pink is my favorite color so after the holidays, I want to make a lap quilt for ME! I bought a package of fat quarters with different brown prints. Now, I need ideas. I though maybe walk in the park?????

    It is beautiful pink fabric. Why are we drawn to certain colors! I believe that a block with a fuzzy cut from the pink fabric with the brown outline. http://www.quilterscache.com/H/Hourglass4Block.html Let us know what you decide. Good luck!!

    I love your pink fabric. You can always use it to back your quilts too. Waiting to see what you decide.

    That would make a gorgeous quilt backing!

    The pink is so pretty I'd hate to see it cut into small pieces. Can you make a big block quilt? One with 12" blocks? To show off the fabric? Even to use as the backing as everyone is suggesting would be perfect. I'd just hate to see it all cut up.
