    I really like the jelly roll (1600) quilt. There is one posted on here using the same colors and she called it the LASAGNA QUILT. It is beautiful...that may be what I do. Just have to make a decision and go with it!

    Thank you all for so many good ideas! I knew I could count on this board!

    How about a chevron pattern with white or black as the contrasting fabric? Such pretty colors!

    I second the idea of the Missouri Star Quilting Jelly Roll Race quilt, except recently a friend of mine has made several and at the end of every strip she put a 2 1/2" black square. When you sew it all up it is awesome!!! She used solid black on the ones she did, because it worked, but you can use whatever color you want. Looks fantastic!!!!
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    I like this idea! I also love Bargellos...however, I have two patterns I purchased and had to hide in a drawer because they were staring and daring me! My skill level is not up to trying one yet!

    There is a New York Beauty sew along on this board starting October 1, 2012. I think these would be ideal for that.

    There's a great French braid pattern using batiks in F&P Sept/Oct magazine this month. Done in tones of reds. Have fun making it -- I'm sure it will look awesome no matter what design you choose.

    Those would make a great bargello or Trip Around the World pattern quilt.

    Lasagna quilt. I have almost the same colors cut to make one. And it is quilted as you go. Love that.

    Scroll down to Paint Box quilt. I've made one, easy and very pretty, and it's free.

    I don't see how you could go wrong with any quilt! The colors are glorious. Perhaps a pattern that you could use the same block, but grade it from the top corner diagonally to the bottom in a rainbow.

    it is nice to see you making a quilt for yourself for a change. I love the colors you were gifted. I too like the idea of either Bargello or French braid.

    Here is another choice. I just made this quilt with 2 1/2" strips and 5 (or 5 1/2") squares. This would look great with your fabrics!

    I am seeing something that radiates from color to color, from quilt center to sides....how about Trip around the world.
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I'm going to be starting one of these. I'm attending a quilt retreat with some friends and can't wait to start it.

    http://www.ttfabrics.net/cgi-bin/fab...?patternID=345

    Just an idea. I thought it was just a little different, so it appealed to me personally. Can't wait to see what you decided upon.

    Oh! I like that "dragon skin" use of clamshells!

    I had a lot of fun making the Jewel Box. Of course, it's and old pattern, you can get it at www.quilterscache.com or many other placesbut I never really liked it until I saw on in jewel tones. whatever you end up doing, those colors are magnificent.
