    I'm sew confused...

    From time to time the fabric companies come up with a fabric that is... interesting... but that I have no ideas what to do with it.

    So here are pictures of five fabrics that have me stumped.

    Any ideas? Do they fire up your creativity?

    The marshmallows would make a good filler fabric - the can tops cut up small would work also as a filler with some interesting details the rest not really sure what they were thinking ..... LOL
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

    OOOOH love those. the wishbones could be on a turkey/thankgiving quilt. Marshmello could be on a cook or cake or cup cake quilt,kaboom could be on a kids quilt. crime fighters quilt, you could use the can on a quilt with the orange and black flames material due to them being energy drinks or a racing quilt love them. good luck
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    You could always use them for backings on fun kids or holiday quilts. I think teenage boys would love a quilt with the energy drink cans. You could make a cocoa mug quilt and back it with the marshmallows. My 4 year old grandson would love a super hero cape lined with the bam, pow fabric. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    The Kaboom and cans fabrics scream P.J. bottoms to me. Kaboom for the younger, energy drink cans for the high school to college age and can tops for college age and up (because it reminds me of beer cans).

    The cans would also make great quilts for the student heading off to dorm life! The wishbones are spread far apart so I'm thinking a backing or kitchen accessory and the marshmallows would also be good for kitchen accessories.

    I agree with charity-crafter ... all would be great in I-Spy quilts. I also like the wishbone and marshmallow fabrics to use in jar quilts. I'm not sure they'll be big sellers in any event.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
