    Need inspiration please

    So I am kinda at a road block. Not sure what I want to start on next. I have done some little projects, like mug rugs, but not sure if I want to do a quilt with some fabric I got or to try a project in the book I bought...One Yard Wonders.

    I was thinking of doing a D9P with some fabric I bought a week ago but not sure. It is some fabric I love so I don't want to get rid of what I make but at the same time, I don't need another quilt/blanket.

    Any suggestions?

    How about a wall hanging, table runner, placemats or tote bag?

    Maybe you need some type of decorating project - a sofa pillow, a new valence, table runner, set of towels or a Christmas gift. Something larger than mug rugs but smaller than a quilt. Or is it time to try an art quilt of some size? Maybe something you'd like to frame?

    sounds like time to lok at a quilting magazine or a big website of nothing but patterns...or best yet a quilt show....I always see something I need like another hole in my head...lol...good luck
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Thanks everyone! I bought the book One Yard Wonders so maybe I just need to throw it open and see what it opens to then try that project. lol

    you know sometimes with fabric i really love and don't want to launch a big project, i just make pillowcases for our bed or guest room bed. that is almost instant gratification. Or you could make a fabulous decor type pillow. There's always place-mats and napkins...maybe an organizer of the type that fits under your machine and has pockets for supplies...even an ironing board cover. Clothesline bowls are fun but you don't see much of your fabric print w/ those.

    I like to keep a couple table runners and table toppers around for quick emergency gifts. Maybe you can turn your pretty fabrics into gift items?

    I am debating on making placemats and napkins with them. I should post a pic of the fabric so maybe ya'll can see an project with them.

    Ok here are the fabric, it is a yard of each. The two on the far left (orangish flowers and the rabbits) are my favorite.
