    Question What simple pattern to use hand dyed fabrics in?

    I have hand dyed fabrics - looking for a simple pattern for my son (6) or daughter (13) to make a quilt out of it.
    I have the color wheel, a pink gradation, a green gradation, and run that involves changing the chroma (yellow to violet).
    About 29 fat quarters total.

    What would you suggest?

    I was thinking Turning 20 or even Yellow Brick Road.

    Input is needed - please!

    Can't think of the name of but gives the illusion of a shadow box. Really highlights the beautiful hand dyes.

    Since you have hand dyed fabric that has a pattern of its own, how about simple squares. If there is a slight stripe or long ways patterns, set every other square on its side. Easy for the kids, but still attractive.

    I like the "Trip around the World" with colors - another great pattern is "Bargello" - you have the hard part done - choosing the colors. Good luck.
