    These are cut into 3 inch strips. What can I do with them? There are not the same amount of strips in each pile.

    Its 4 fabrics. These pictures don't look too good I don't think.They seem blurry and were taken with my cell phone but the floral peices have blue flowers with the goldish tone on tone. The other one is pink flowers with an olive greenish tone on tone. I thought about maybe a 9 patch but that seems too easy. Is there maybe another pattern I could use them for that would be in the easy category? Sure would like your suggestions.

    If you don't want to do a 9 patch what about a D9P instead?

    These are pretty fabrics. How about a D9patch? I'm not sure how easy it is because I haven't tried that one yet, but shouldn't be too difficult.

    I don't know what a D9P is. Sure would like to know as I have seen alot of people suggesting the D9P to other posters. :)

    I just did a search on D9P not sure that these would work for the pictures that I have seen. What these are, are 3 strips that were sewn together and then subcut and they now are 3 inches wide (the short side)

    In reality the flower fabrics are the same piece of fabric. It just happened that the cut was on the yellow or pink flower. I have this pattern in dark green and black background. A 9 patch is when you take one of your 3 inch strip with the yellow on the ends, add another 3 inch strip with yellow in the middle, then add another 3 inch strip of yellow on the ends. The yellow makes an X shape. Here is one on the board:

    Do you have any other fabrics to coordinate with them?

    It definitely looks like they were intended to be a 9 Patch. They would also make a neat checkerboard border on a smaller quilt.

    Take a look at the link, she does show it so easy how to do a
    D9P. I had no idea what a D9P was, until I saw this link.

    I think your quilt will look so gorgeous with this style.
