    I went to a quilt show today in Ripley WV and found some great WV fabric. I then stopped at walmart on my way home and found a great gold that matched it perfect (I thought).

    I am looking for some pattern idea for this fabric. I am wanting to make a quilt for my nephew for his graduation.

    I got the blue and gold print and a navy solid and a gold solid to make a quilt for my sweet DIL.I am thinking about a block of the print and framing it with the gold and blue solids in alternating pattern. But I'm still mulling it over to be honest.

    Welcome to the QB Christina. Nice fabric-would be better if it were PennState LOL!!!
    I made a wall hanging with Steelers fabric that would be easy to enlarge to quilt size. Good luck with your project and please post pics when you're done. (Are you sure I can't convert him to a PSU fan?)

    My daughter graduates this year and wants to go to Concord in the fall. My son will be in the 9th grade and is a big joke. My hopes is he plays football for WVU

    I just seen the perfect pattern for these 3 fabrics. The Calico Puzzle !

    Does anyone have a easy to follow pattern. I was just looking around and all I seen was individual small cuts. Is there any way to make it using strips?

    I have that same fabric but I am making handbags for a craft show. You could just about pick any quilt pattern you like and I'm sure it would turn out great.
    I live in Dunbar but I have a daughter that lives in Ripley.
    Have you ever been to" Halls" in Kenna?. She gets discontued fabric and it is 2.50 a yrd, I get a lot of fabric there. Get off Kenna exit turn right, go until it dead ends turn right again and it will be on the right in a trailor. ( as soon as you make the right)

    No I have never been there. Its is good fabric or the cheap walmart kind? I just started sewing again and could NOT believe the price of fabric now. Even walmart is $5 plus dollars a yard now! Do u have any pictures of your bags?
