    I have 3 sets of fabric for you to see. I'm looking for ideas for them. I got them all with a plan in mind...and the plan has since left my mind. :oops:

    The patriotic fabrics are from 2 different lines. The first 3 are from one, and the other 2 are from another.

    The Frogs are all from one line, just different colors. The others I believe were from all the same line.

    I would love some input from you gals. I'm itching to start *another* project. I have all the blocks for my wall hanging pieced and I work on the embroidery in the car while waiting for DD or DH to come out of school or work.

    So let me have it girls!! Swamp me with your creativity!!

    That's what I was thinking, but I can't decide on a pattern.

    You could try a "Rail Fence" with those patriotic fabrics, just make a 5 rail since you have 5 fabrics

    What cute fabric. I like the patriotic but I love the frogs. No suggestions for a patter though.

    The daisies and poka dots would be adorable as purses or tote bags!

    I bought the frog fabric to make springy pillowcases for my granddaughters.

    One of the most simple quilts with the patriotic fabrics I saw was a quilt made with nine or twelve inch blocks. There was four inch sashing between the blocks.

    What made it nice was that the sampling of patriotic prints were in such a nice sized block that people could really enjoy the pattern.
    (I don't suppose you want to go get some more samples from somewhere in the red, white, and blue theme, do you?)

    Anyway, when Jody did the quilting, it was absolutely straight line stitching, going across the blocks as though the blocks were actually nine patches.
    It was very simple, and very striking ... I thought ... but, what do I know? I have brown eyes .... LOL

    Perhaps you could add some other fabric to them and make a Suduko Quilt. It takes 9 colors. Just a thought.
