    Hi everyone, well i bought some awesome looking fabric, but i'm not sure what to make with it. i feel in love with it, when i first seen it and had to buy three meters of each color... :mrgreen: It will have to be a special pattern, for i would love all the colors to show nicely. I've never seen anything like this fabric before . In each picture i opened the fabric so you can see the cool colors from selvage to selvage. Anyone have any suggestions, would appreciate your help. Thanks. :-)

    in the picture from left to right is the fabric from selvage to selvage.

    Lucious fabric. I'm sure you could hear my oooh's and aaaah's over the net. Have you though about a trip around the world pattern. It would be lovely using those colors.

    Awesome! What's the name of these yummy fabrics so we can get some too? You could do something like this with it. It's a free pattern at Robert Kaufman Fabrics http://www.robertkaufman.com/quiltin...doscope_quilt/

    oh thank you all for your responses, omg love that RKQ marbleous quilt. I purchased this fabric at a little shop called seams easy in Peace River, Alberta, Canada. For 15.99/metre.
    The name of fabric is: Mckenna Ryan's Silent Inspirations style #PN014 by Hoffman California International Fabric. The lady at the quilt shop told me this was totally new, just came out. For those of you's who are interested in buying it, good luck hope you can find it.

    When ceannastrah and i were chatting, she also mentioned that this fabric would look good in a bargello or even maybe a french braid. Oh decisions decisions heehee. But so much fun... Thanks everyone. Happy sewing.
