    Log cabin comes to mind or what a great strip quilt this would make

    Go to the Timeless Treasures website and look at their free patterns. I saw several that use the tonga treats that were just beautiful. Maybe you would get some ideas.

    French braid?
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I made a zig zag quilt with Tonga treats. I used 2 packages, one color and one neutrals.

    How about Bento Box? Just add some white strips.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    There are some cute ones here, Gumdrops or the sugarplum would work well, you would just have to add a plain fabric http://www.fatquartershop.com/Free-Q...es-Fabrics.asp
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    You might go visit the Missouri Star Quilt Co. site and look at their Jelly Roll and 3 Dudes video. It might be really stunning in your fabrics. Wish I had their website handy, but I don't. Easy to google though, if you are interested.

    I think they would make a stunning French braid with either black cornerstones or that deep purple, using them in the order you have there.

    I have an October 2000 McCall's magazine with a neat quilt that would look great in those fabrics. It is by M'liss Rae Hawley and I think I found the same quilt on her Facebook page but in different colours. Check it out, it is log cabins with shooting stars around the outside border. I'll try to post a link http://sphotos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphoto...50262517_n.jpg

    Wow!! I just got home to my computer and found all of these wonderful ideas! I went to the Timeless Treasures web site and found two I really like. Outside the Box and Chaos at the Courthouse (which I really like..but would have to buy the Pink Lemonade to go with it...oh darn). I like the Bento Box too. I like the strip idea too! I like all of them...oh woe is me!

    The1600 top is quick and easy and makes a throw size top. I recently saw some embellished with raw edge flowers scattered over the top or one big bloom on a stem with a couple of leaves. Just Google 1600 in. Quilt to see the process.
