    I don't have any ideas for a pattern but I sure do love your fabric.
    Nice room to make a quilt for. :)

    i love the color combination and my suggestion would be to find a block that could use 8 colors and use the ones with the room/bed colors the most in the biggest sections of the block. For example I looked at quilters cache and On Target Star could use 8 colors. http://www.quilterscache.com/O/OnTargetStarBlock.html

    Yeah, maybe the blues would be a bit much in that room and be a distraction from the main colors and style. I have another spare room that is in turquoise, white and brown but it would probably look very green next to that blue. My bedroom has wheat color walls and I change my bedding around to whatever suits me so....

    I like all of them together too so I was looking at patterns that would use 8 colors (great minds think alike). I found one that is very simple and my first reaction was it was too simple but then I thought... I always seem to pick complicated patterns and then takes me forever to make it.

    I figured out what fabrics each would substitute in this pattern. It's simple and would showcase the whole set. Is it too simple for such beautiful fabrics? I could buy yardage of one of them for the border.

    BTW... I saw that kitty picture online and it was so cute I had to click that button!

    Oh My... I love this pattern but I've never done anything like it. I was browsing and saw a giant dahlia pattern then I looked for a paper piecing of it and found one using EQ4, which I have!

    How do you all think this would look with the blue and yellow fabric?

    I love the romantic feminine look and your fabric is perfect for this simple pattern.
    It is called Summer Porch and it is in Quilts Through the Seasons by El Burns. There are several other feminine quilts in the book also.

    The room is fantastic, come do my sewing room? The fabrics are scrumptious ! I am sure that whatever your young talented mind decides, it will be beautiful...
