Default Ideas for this Fabric?

I've had this fat quarter bundle for ages and have never found a "worthy" pattern for it.
It has 8 fat quarters and then I have 1 yard of the black and white and I can get as much of the grey as I want to.

Any ideas for something cool?

what about a simple chevron type of pattern, a row for each color that is separated by a black (or white) row of chevrons in between. would look pretty in a rainbow progression.

I think they would look wonderful in a Pineapple block or a Log Cabin especially a curved log cabin.

maybe some kind of a drunkards path with different sizes. I would google "modern drunkard's path quilts" and see what pops up.

I'd say 'send it to me!', but then I'd have the same question.

Jordan fabrics just did a tutorial on Buds and Blooms that uses brights and black background. If you have enough fabric, it might work.

Check out this link for the Chandelier Quilt. It is very easy, looks amazing, and uses 7 fat quarters. I made one with Christmas fabric and just love it. A google search will show this quilt using a wide variety of colors.

I just printed out a FREE pattern from Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts called "Beautifully Charming" that I think would work for your fabric. Check it out. It's simple and charming and makes a 70"x70" quilt, but your can always make it larger if you want.
