    my brain hurts

    Okay, I received these four fabrics in a mystery box I purchased. I want to make a baby quilt with them and prefer to do a fussy cut to highlight the prints. The problem is I have wracked my brain till it hurts over a pattern for and have come up with so many I cant decide. Help a frustrated and indecisive newbie. I want to see what everyone thinks and go from there. No rush on deadline, this one has till September to become a work of art. The four fabrics with the sheep on them are the prints in question the rest of the fabrics are there for accents. There is a yard of the pink and mint ones and just fq of the rest.

    No ideas, just wanted to say how super cute those fabrics are. Do the fabrics #2 and #4 repeat? I'm not sure I can make this question clear, if the repeat is say every 10 inches could you use that as a horizontal row or if it was a narrower repeat a border? Then fussy cut blocks from fabrics #1 and #2?

    I'm sorry, what I have in my head won't come out in print. Any good luck deciding

    Suzy Q, thanks what a good idea, I was sitting here thinking of fussy cutting it all. Never thought of emphasizing some in a border or whole row. DUH im not to with it lately.

    Disappearing Nine Patch!! You can put the fussy cut squares in the corners. I love the fabrics!

    DP9, Regular 9-patch of the coordinating prints and an alternate large square of one of the prints, Attic Window, Snowball...It's going to be cute.

    you could fussy cut different squares and rectangles, sashing each of them, cut smaller squares and rectangles out of other fabrics in order to even out rolls. Don't have pattern name, but will look for it.

    I was thinking either a Snowball or a really simple row quilt. Those fabrics are super cute! Does it say what brand they are? You got them sight unseen? Wow! Lucky! And lucky little baby who gets the quilt made from them!
