    Need a pattern for this fabric

    I have spent the last week organizing and I found these fat quarters and I am at a loss as to what would be a good pattern for it. So who better to ask than all the talented quilters here; there are 18 fat quarters, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    WOW!! Aren't you lucky. Those are the prints I am always looking for to make Foster kids quilts out here in Southern CA. I would made a Disappearing 9 patch. Whatever you make, it is going to be delicious with all those bright prints. Have Fun !! If there are any scraps left over when you finsih, I would be delighted to make a deal with you !!

    I would suggest Yellow Brick Road. Its a pattern specifically for lots of fat 1/4's.

    Those are beautiful and bright! They'd be super-cute in the DinoMite pattern. (On my bucket list for a bright quilt.) Instead of a center panel, you could do squares easily.

    Or if you just want something simple and cute, a Plus Quilt is easy.

    maybe cut squares or rectangles out of the animals and pinwheels out of the others. it will be wonderful whatever you make.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    My daughter made the Falling Charms top by MSQC out of an assortment of charms. It turned out really cute.
