    Sounds like great fabrics to use in baby quilts as well
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

There will be a spot to click on "Manage Attachments." Do that. Then a box will appear in the top left hand corner.

    It will say "choose file to upload." Do that. Then click on "Upload." Once a number appears in the box, punch on "Close Window."

    That should do it. I promise, if I can do it, you surely can. I would like to see your squares. I don't have any suggestions at the moment, but I could have, ya never know.

    picture of light batiks

    Hope this works. Thanks for the help. This should be a picture of the light batiks in question. Very pretty, but I must have a brain freeze because I can't think of how I want to use them.

    Ohhhh Pretty I would agree with the others and pair them up with a darker batik and do a two fabric block out of them and make a scrappy batik quilt

    I am not sure if you have batiks in your stash, but I would pair each pale batik with its matching dark sibling and make a two fabric block like Magic Squares...so pale purple with dark purple, pale blue with navy blue etc.

    I like them! If you're at all into that faded country chic look, these would be lovely just as is. Maybe even a simple strip quilt would look lovely.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    How about paring all the "like" colors together and making a quilt that fades one color into another?
    This could be something like using a jelly roll OR a star pattern.

    We did a simple 4 patch with some light batiks like this and then made them into a strip alternated with a deeper richer verrsion of a color that is in the blocks. Then made an interesting border
