    I say put bistro chairs and a little table in your breakfast nook and make some pillows to go on it!

    Wait...no nook? I say: BUILD A NOOK! :lol:

    Ohhhhh,

    Those are just dreamy!

    But too new to quilting to have any good suggestions!

    Hugs

    How about Warm Wishes? It is essentially a square surrounded by three coordinating stripes of fabric. Easy peasy, and the name goes with the feeling the fabric gives you. Here's a link with a free pattern download:

    I love that fabric too. My kitchen is coffee themed except its in browns and reds and oranges. I want to buy some of that fabric but it would not go to well in my kitchen. I look at it every time I am in the store.

    Good luck. I would make some place mats and a table runner. Maybe an apron too!

    There was a posting yesterday that was called woven ribbons that I think would work great for your fabrics, maybe use two as feature fabrics and the others as the "ribbons".

    I found the link: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-45644-1.htm

    A nook huh? lmao.. that is a great idea, my kitchen is the size of a nook, so no table. lol.. I did a d9p haven't gotten it together yet, with another material. I just love it, but feel like I am cheating. I know that is weird, cheating on my fabric.. whahaha. The warm wishes is great idea, I will look into it! Great ideas- and comments. I will let ya know what I decide.

    I used some of those fabrics to make my daughter a coffee quilt. They would be cute in a wall hanging too.

    I saw these fabrics yesterday! A friend of mine has a coffee theme in her kitchen. I thought about a wall hanging for her or a table runner and placemats.

    I buy those cute fabrics to make Tea/Coffee Wallets to carry in my purse.

    Great gifts for friends and family also.

    Google: Tea Wallet

    Fun to make and fun to give.

    How about Split Rail Fence. Simple, uses all the colors in a set or random placement?

    I was at a set and sew recently and someone was using that fabric for a wall hanging. if i remember correctly one piece worked well for a panel and the she had borders around it with the words interspersed in the the final border.
