    Hi everyone, I am trying to figure out what to do with 3 coordinating fabrics I have. One is a floral, one is a tonal and one is a stripe. Does anyone have a pattern idea?? I am stumped. I want something not too hard but adorable. Help please :)

    This doesn't look too hard and might work with the 3 fabrics

    I like both ideas, I guess my biggest concern is that one is a stripe. :(

    I haven't ever worked with a stripe so I'm not sure how hard it would be to get all the stripes working in the right direction. Good luck

    how about the 10-minute block with the floral in the center... then use the stripe in your sashing?

    I think that would work also. Use you strips as sashing.

    Or a rail fence with the stripes going the 'short' way on the strip.

    Take a look at this - maybe you could incorporate one of these ideas into a block.

    A nine patch with snowballs is my favorite this week. Use the floral for the snowballs and the other two for the nine patch. I am using a fourth color for the center of my patch. Someone posted a picture this week, but I didn't save it. I'm cutting my patch squares at 3" and my snowball at 8" with 3" corners. Both blocks should finish at 7 1/2".
