    DH stopped at an area WM to get some oil for the car and came home with six 1/2 yard pieces of these pretty jewel tone fabrics. He said, "I just liked the colors." So, I would love to use them all together...they are bright and happy like a rainbow. I had thought some type of pattern using black as the background fabric...what ideas can you suggest? Would be happy for any thoughts.

    The lady in the fabric department said that they may be keeping the fabric at their store, but at first the manager said that they were getting rid of it because it was a dying art form and that young girls don't do that any more...ARRGGGH! Well, I guess someone complained as they are considering keeping it. He should see how many members this board has!!!

    A star pattern with a black background would let the colors pop! Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs is a quick & easy pattern. Or Eleanor Burns Jewel Box pattern would also look great!

    Can't wait to see what you do with them. I agree that black would be great with them.
