    Need a pattern for this fabric

    I have spent the last week organizing and I found these fat quarters and I am at a loss as to what would be a good pattern for it. So who better to ask than all the talented quilters here; there are 18 fat quarters, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    WOW!! Aren't you lucky. Those are the prints I am always looking for to make Foster kids quilts out here in Southern CA. I would made a Disappearing 9 patch. Whatever you make, it is going to be delicious with all those bright prints. Have Fun !! If there are any scraps left over when you finsih, I would be delighted to make a deal with you !!

    I would suggest Yellow Brick Road. Its a pattern specifically for lots of fat 1/4's.

    Those are beautiful and bright! They'd be super-cute in the DinoMite pattern. (On my bucket list for a bright quilt.) Instead of a center panel, you could do squares easily.

    Or if you just want something simple and cute, a Plus Quilt is easy.

    maybe cut squares or rectangles out of the animals and pinwheels out of the others. it will be wonderful whatever you make.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    My daughter made the Falling Charms top by MSQC out of an assortment of charms. It turned out really cute.

    I also vote for the disappearing 9 patch. Make sure only the small print winds up in the center squares since they get chopped up.

    If you add 2 more fat quarters you could do a turning twenty. http://www.google.com/search?q=quilt...CY7O9gTmpYC4DA

    With that many fat quarters, you could do any scrappy. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t226019.html or

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Looks like it would make a nice Scrappy Trip Around the World. See Bonnie Hunter's site at quiltville.com.

    How about Wickedly Easy Quilts by Annie - free pattern when you go to www.byannie.com and the pattern uses fat quarters.

    I would add white as the background and make a chevron. There are quite a few freebies online buy searching chevron quilt patterns.
