    OK....I have these 3 fabrics that I really like...they were on sale. This is the first time that I have bought fabric when I wasn't buying for a specific class or project. Remember I am REALLY new...just started in July. Now I have this fabric but don't know what to do with it...LOL! Anyway, I have 3 yards of all 3 fabrics so I need a pattern that uses three fabrics and about the same amount of each. I did a bunch of searching but it kept going to stuff like "3 fabrics on sale", etc. I posted pics of fabric below.
    Thanks for your help!!

    OH MY. Love your fabrics. You can always add some pinks or greens when you find a pattern that you like. Keep us posted on your search for the perfect pattern.

    Great fabrics. Where was the sale? I could use those colors. I will keep an eye out for a suitable pattern.

    I vote for a D9P so easy and so complicated looking!

    That was the one I thought about too. I don't know how to do one yet but I watched someone go through the steps and it was mesmerizing. It looked so easy and so pretty when done.

    Rail Fence works for 3 fabrics.

    Or a 4 patch with 2 fabrics, alternating with a square of 3rd fabric.

    Or pinwheels with a light & dark, alternating with the 3rd fabric.

    whatever you choose, please post pics as you move along

    Your fabrics are beautiful, but I would include a few more pieces. How about some solid or marbled green?

    What about using the very dark with the white for a 2 color block and use the black with the flowers as a border?

    Yummy! Sorry, a pattern just doesn't come to mind for these. I would also add a pink and green to the mix to give you another light and medium....

    Yellow Brick road would be AWESOME!! in these fabrics! And it is a great beginner quilt. If you mess up and cut a square too small, just add another square to the block and make it work! :)

    I would do a rail fence, then for borders....a narrow green to match the leaves, then a larger pink outer border.

    I think that would be beautiful, but you may need to get a solid colour to enhance what you already have and you could use the one black with pink for the border to tie it all together.
