    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!

    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.

    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.

    Good one Pinkiris! I had the same thought. Nice to start the morning with a chuckle. Stained glass is a neutral theme; not masculine or feminine. It's bold enough for a man's office. Good luck.

    Thanks to auntpiggylpn, visited the moda site and printed the pattern. It is a great one for a Christmas quilt using my old fabrics. A mistake made often when collectiong fabrics for my stash was to buy too little of any one fabric. How many "I spy" type quilts do I need to make?" anyway. LOL.

    Thanks everyone who posted to my thread. quiltE I did decide to go with the stained glass quilt pattern. I couldn't figure out how to find your post and would have loved to see the quilt you did. I bought one from Craftsy. I am looking forward to starting it. It will look perfect in hubby's, better clarify this. (Office/guest room.)

    Here's how you can see my quilt ... I'll re-post the link that I gave you earlier ....

    When you get to that thread, then go to
    post #17 for the quilt photo
    and post #98 for the pattern details

    It really is an easy quilt to do. You'll need to check the pattern details for the # strips and size of quilt it will make for you. I love the Stonehenge fabrics and will look forward to seeing what you create.
