    Thank you,
    Here is one store that sells it. You can see that it works with many types of fabrics.

    I think they would look good with Bailey Quilt.

    I would add another fabric or two for contrast. These all seem to be the same value to me.

    I'd make pinwheels - darks on lights, and lights on darks. Put a thin border around it with the extra pink.

    I'd take the four on the left shopping with me and look for a brighter focus fabric or other coordinating fabrics. Those four are all toned (grayed), but you wouldn't have to stick to toned fabrics for the rest of the group. A green and pink fabric would add some punch. Even a toned green (the complimentary color) would be a welcome addition.

    I'd put the three on the right back into my stash to use for neutrals in another project. One always needs neutrals!

    All those colors are terrific...they will make a soft looking quilt. If you want it to be "stronger," maybe add a darker shade of pink?

    Helovesme: would you share the name or where I can purchase that pattern? It looks like one that would be fun to do.

    First off, do what you like, unless it's for someone in particular, then do what they like.

    Having said that, I like very simple designs and the "Modern Quilts" fit me perfectly. They use a lot of solids and especially grey.

    what would you do with this fabric?

    The Pink in the middle would be beautiful in a Spring Wall hanging with Tulips. Maybe make a great big Tulip paper-pieced and some surrounding Violets, ect, with some of the rest. They are too pretty not to use!

    I've never made a dresdan quilt, but I think your fabrics might just work on one of those too. I would probably add a couple of bolder fabrics, but I like bold.

    Hi, just thought I would jump in, I am new here and feeling my way around. You have chosen some soft, pretty fabrics to quilt with. I like your color choices. Do you like to applique? For me I am an applique nut. I start piecing and wind up adding applique to everything I do! LOL. Personally, I would add some more white for say twenty- ten to twelve inch blocks- and make a cute Dutch girl twin quilt or maybe a foot of the bed coverlet or lap quilt would be nice. Those patterns are easily found on the internet, and all kinds of cute ones also.
    I would take away the one on the end, the blue, and add a soft, solid lavender in it's place to compliment the pink and use them to make the hats, shoes and baskets etc. out of the solids. Also the sashing. The flowers and other fabrics could be their dresses, umbrella or other designs you wanted to create. If you wanted to leave the blue in, you could add a Dutch boy and make his pants and shoes from it. Applique adds all kinds of possibilities to quilting. Just my opinion. Everyone's quilts on here are beautiful. Hope to get as good as some of you eventually.
