    What would you do with these fabrics?

    I have these fabrics and can't decide what pattern to use them for. What would YOU do with them?

    I agee a baby girl quilt would be cute with these. But, I would take away the last three on the right. The one floral is not the right theme for this collection and the other two are too stark. They would make a cute purse or tote bag too. Or a sewing machine cover or really any small project. Sewing case and pin cushion. A hang up jewel case or organizer for your closet. Really the application is limitless in a small project.

    Maybe something like this- it uses simple shapes and allows you to keep your fabrics somewhat large.
    Pattern is called Bailey's quilt.

    I like those fabrics together! It's a nice blend. Keep them all to add some spark!
