    I love all your fabrics especially the reds and the browns. I suggest Eleanor Burns "Twice as Nice" or on Missouri Star Quilt Co. the "Amazing Jelly Roll quilt pattern byThree Dudes". You didn't say how much fabric is there, I would make lap quilts from them and I did like the suggestion of using the reds in a Valentine way. They are beautiful. When I have fabric and it calls for a jelly roll, I just simply cut strips, usually 2 1/2 " wide by the width of the fabric. Whatever you choose to make with those choices you can't go wrong.

    you could combine the blue browns with the brown whites and add a bit more brown. rail fence or log cabin... (terrible on remembering pattern names) Not sure about the set with the butterflies. Something with hearts for the reds.

    I see a D9P for the first 2, but the others need something to make them pop. The turquoise looks like 2 of them are turquoise and black, but the lightest is turquoise and brown? The 3 browns need a solid or a tone on tone very dark brown imho.

    I have some of those fabrics. I really like them all.
    I'm doing a black/white/red DNP with mine.
    I'm also doing a Rail Fence (I believe is what it's called) with some of the others.
    Can't wait to see what you decide!

    I really like the solid-y red with the spotted red together. The butterfly and the turquoise with a tone-on-tone pink would make a gorgeous warm wishes!

    LOVE the red. I really like them all, red is just my favorite .I'm like you, when I buy fabric I always buy at least two yards each fabric and 3 to 4 colors that go together.
    Decide later what you want to make with them. lol

    I love the butterfly set!! What fabric line is it?
    I see big blocks of butterfly fabric (6 - 8") with 2" border of blue and corner stones of the black surrounded by the dot borders then the final border of blue and butterfly on back. Simple, but I think it would also be stunning. Could also pull some hot pink in there.

    What fabulous fabrics. When I first saw the red fabric on the left, I thought of the 9 patch heart, set on point with 2 1/2" corners sewn on the diagnal then trimmed off. Sorry I can't describe it better, but I there there was something like it on Missouri Star Quilt Co. and maybe Eleanor Burns quilt in a day site. Love the butterfly fabric, maybe do an 8 pointed star with t he butterfly fussy cut, something like that. have fun.

    Actually, the red ones are my favorite. I like them all.

    I can see the reds in many patterns, especially the Rail Fence and D9P. I love the fabrics in the butterfly set, just not so much together. The colors on my screen might be off tho, because in the other sets, some look brown and some look black. I'm thinking you would have all the same in each group. If the blue/black group is indeed all black, I would definitely go with a D9P there; probably adding a solid black or white for the center blocks to add unity thruout the design.
    The three brown/whites I really love and would add a bright to them for impact. I think you could hardly go wrong choosing one. Red, fuschia, green, lime, pink, teal, yellow......... I think the only color I would stay away from would be orange and tangerine. Then I'd jump on the Scrambled D9P for that one. LOL, can you guess what my favorite pattern is? There are so many ways to arrange your blocks after they are sewn. The D9P is one of the easiest and most versatile patterns I know.

    Ooooh! I LOVE inspiration Qs!

    Putting on my silk turban and looking into my crystal ball...I LOVE the reds! I see them with a white background in a traditional pattern s/a drunkard's path, Bethlehem Star, or pineapple motive with lots of points and spikes.

    Love the fabrics, except I don't think the butterfly fabric fits with the rest. Both the colors and the pattern of the butterfly fabric doesn't seem to go with the rest. Can't wait to see what you make!
