    Default Need help selecting a pattern

    I have 10 fabrics that are the same design just different colors. I have 1 1/2 yard of each but they are cut into 1-1 yard piece and then 1- 1/2 yard piece of all of them. I want to do something that's quick and relatively easy because I'm dealing with a lot of medical problems right now and I want to sew to try to distract my mind from constant worry. But I don't want it to be so easy that it's just basically sewing 6" blocks together but not so complex that I add more frustration to my already chaotic life. I know, I'm not asking for much am I? I consider myself an advanced beginner. If anyone has any ideas please throw them my way. I would greatly appreciate it. i want to post a photo of the fabric I want to use but not sure how to do it on my iPhone. If someone could tell me how to do it, I would appreciate it because I'm sure it would be helpful to those suggesting patterns. It is busy, but I like busy.

    TIA!!!

    How about the double slice? It's quick and easy and can look fabulous
    with the right fabric.

    I love the Bonnie Hunter pattern!!! It won't work with the fabric I'm working with now (not enough contrast) but will definitely use it for some other fabric I have. When I saw the finished quilt at the beginning I thought that's way above my ability. But after looking at the pattern I was all giddy because I can this!!!!!! Thanks for sharing quiltsRfun!!!

    EasyPeezy- I have actually done this pattern before. I'm going to make a couple blocks to see what they look like with this fabric.

    I still can't figure out how to post a photo on my post from my phone!!

    One I go to with similar fabrics is the Rail Fence. Not sure how many quilts you want to make. I usually use 4 - 1 yard fabrics. Then cut them into 2.5 inch strips. If I had 5 fabrics I would do 2 inch strips and just make a larger quilt.

    Have you looked at any of the Turning Twenty patterns?? I mostly use Warm Wishes for my charity quilts but I don't think that pattern would work. There are some patterns called 5 Yards.

    I think if there was a list of every quilters version/fabric of all the different patterns, it would surely wrap the whole world up in warmth.
