    I'm not sure and I like them all but the red set made my eyes and brain hurt. Something about their pattern really does something to me. Does anyone else feel that?

    I had the same reaction to the red - it made me wince. I think its the one on the far right that sets me off it. Not sure why, other than the pattern is very busy & makes me uncomfortable -- maybe cut that one up into smaller pieces so its used more sparingly? The browns are too close together in color/all are busy patterns - need a little variety in color, texture, etc. Love the green & brown and the blues & blacks! I see a D9P or a churn dash for the green and brown, the black/blues I see in a simple 9 patch with alternating blocks in the floral print (its too large a print to cut up much or you'd lose the pattern). You have some lovely fabrics.

    I really like your fabric! In fact, I have a couple of them What about Robert Kaufman "Bundle of 10" ? I think they'd look great in some fashion of a more contemporary look. Fun!

    I have no ideas for the fabrics, but where did you get the butterflies? I've looked all over to find it with no luck

    I like all of the groupings and I think the reds will work fine, the first fabric will add a bit of movement

    ok I saw pinwheels in the first one, rail fence in the second.. then lets see the browns need less white I think. the greens too.. melt together like a .. peppermint patty sorta way.. I like the red/whites a pinwheel set of fours needs a solid in there I think. lovely fabric is right. go to pinterest type in quilt type in girls or hearts or whatever words hit you and just scroll. it will come to you. red quilts something like that and tada there it is.. spring quilts.. bright quilts you get the idea. hundreds of drooling photos right there to peak at.

    My first thought when I saw the reds was Valentines. Dont know about the butterfly combo but the green and brown sets I would go with one of the modern day patterns.

    I love the red set. They would be great for one of the versions of a tube quilt.

    Love your fabrics. The reds are pretty. I can see how some of you get a headache from them. Anxious to see what you make from them.

    Love the reds! Maybe if you throw a solid at each batch of Color it will help in the inspiration department.there are so many possibilities I'm afraid to offer one.Best of luck though and looking forward to seeing your choices. The chocolate Colorado just beg for something decadent!!!

    Love all the sets though I think the bottom one needs something as they are so similar. I agree with some of the comments that a solid needs to be added to each. I thought Christmas or Valentines for the reds - maybe a tablerunner?. I thought of my neice for the butterflys...something fun and modern.

    Please let us know what you do. Fun fabrics with lots of potential.

    I think the middle red would go well to off set the butterflies...no pattern ideas...the last red that is so busy would look great with a solid white and solid matching red in a simple pattern...now you can go buy more fabric.
