    The smaller you cut the pieces, the less obnoxious they are.

    Fabulous payment for working your butt off.

    Well, if you don't cut it and make quilts, what would you do with it ? If you sold it, someone would use it. Sooooooo, go ahead and make beautiful quilts with it all. Then it is a quilt, to be loved and used or looked at. Barny

    You can use your new treasures any way you want! I know you will enjoy it and whatever you make will be beautiful. Don't necessarily stick to period patterns! There are some pretty new ones that showcase vintage fabrics. For the really big, bold prints try a kaleidoscope. It's amazing how cutting fabric up tones it down. Above all, Have FUN with it. Don't worry about ruining the "value". The value will be in your enjoyment and the wonderful projects you can use it for!

    I made this quilt (Follow the Leader) and think it would be great with all your dark browns and muddy colors .

    What fun! Stack and Whack for the big floral prints. Go with what you like as far as using the vintage prints. Any pattern you like is good.
