    What can I do with these 10" squares?

    HELP! I love this layer cake I got on sale! But.... what to do with it??? Most I have two of each piece, a few only one. I definitely need a solid black somewhere. Any suggestions on what kinda pattern I could go with? I think something kinda funky since the fabric is a lot funky!

    If you dont want to cut to much, how about doing a shaggy frayed edge. Ba k it in black, then you have all your goodies in one nice place.

    How about a D9P? My LQS did a sample from a layer cake they call Disappearing Nine patch on steroids. I would put the prints in the corners and black and white in the other positions. Or you could cut it into charms and do a D-9-P. Let us know what you decide and keep us posted on your progress.

    I think this would look good too. Another thought would be to use the blocks whole with black sashing. You could add some marbles, blenders, solids to the mix also. Pretty layer cake!

    I love that fabric! What is the name of the fabric line? Looks like Kaffe Fassett's designs. Check out his patterns as he uses this type of fabric colors.
    Got fabric?

    Pattern suggestion for your gorgeous fabrics

    This pattern is free from BENARTEX. you can go to www.benartex.comand find the pattern. The name is DeNQvo. The large squares are 9.5"so your 10" sqs are perfect. You will not have to cut the lovely fabrics into small pieces. What do you think?
