Default Ideas!

I have 2 rolls of 18 each "Stone Rolls #1 warm from Northcott. I would like to make a queen size quilt for the bed in my husband's office. I can't seem to come up with a pattern. I would love some ideas from you creative ladies. Much appreciated!

Pardon my chuckle--my first thought was "what kind of work does her husband DO?!?!

oooooo maybe do a a jelly roll quilt of some sort. if its a jelly roll if its 10" square roll then maybe find a nice fabric to go with it then a dnp might look good. maybe a double dnp. just a thought.

How about a stained glass quilt?
You could pick out a couple of other Northcott Stonehenge's for the "leading".
It would be much subtler than mine ... but with the warm Stonehenge's it would make a beautiful quilt.

See post #17 for the quilt photo
and post #98 for the pattern details.

Pinkiris: That was funny, love the sense of humor. It is also a guest room.

I did forget to mention that they are fat quarters.

You might go look thru the Moda bakeshop website. There are tons of patterns on there for various precuts.

that means that you have roughly a 1/2 yard of each color maybe. hmmmmmm. definitely hit the moda bakeshop. I would also maybe find some yardage to go with this. I am not sure how well 36 FQ would fit a queen size bed. it all depends on the pattern you choose.

I love the Stonehenge fabric line! I think this Moda bake shop pattern Simply Woven quilt would work for it. I'm going to do this in batiks and will be using FQs from my stash.

I have a pattern called "Fractions" that is fat-quarter friendly, and works up pretty easily. I have made one for each of my DGS's and each one looks so different. Can be masculine, or feminine. Wish I could remember who it published by. I have made so many, I don't need a pattern for it any more. Just added different outside border to each quilt.
