    What pattern should I use???

    I just got these gorgeous fabrics from my LQS today (the picture is not very good and doesn't do the fabrics justice at all)....what quilt should I make with them? It was a impulse buy. I only have 1/2 yard of each but I can always get more or add more fabrics. Do you know of a pattern that these fabrics would look great in?
    Thanks!

    The fabrics are pretty for sure, but I am not good with patterns. I very seldom work with plaids or checks because if they come out the least bit off it makes me crazy. I love the looks of them though when they are not off.

    You could make a baby quilt with that fabric. You could do a nine patch every other block and have a plain block between them. But I think you'll need more fabric for a border and binding and of course the back. I think the twister is fun, too.
