Default Need pattern suggestion

I have this fabric that I love but not sure of the right quilt pattern for it. Can anyone give me a suggestion? Thank you.

Cute fabric but how much do you have and how big do you want to make it? It would look cute with pink, rose, white for a young girl in the Warm Wishes, Pinwheels or Rail Fence. It would make a cute Valentines table topper in strip piecing or similar.

I also thought of rail fence with the focus print being wider strips than the other "rails".

I have 3 yards and was thinking of a throw- sized quilt. Do I just use white or other colors too - I have no imagination!

I think I would pair it with a rose and a white or very pale pink of the background.

Warm Wishes comes to my mind. Also here is a block from a quilt I made where it could be the center focus fabric.

Lots of good ideas. My mind is blank.

What pretty fabric! Maybe a Farmer's Daughter block would look good. There's a free pattern on Quilter's Cache. http://www.quilterscache.com/F/Farme...hterBlock.html It's a little different than mine, but here's a picture. With your fabric, I'd probably add a touch of black to make it pop.

I agree. Use the same color family.
