    Need some help from the forum.....

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I have 6, 1 yard pieces of the following fabric and I don't have any pattern ideas for all this beautiful fabric. Please help me. I'd love to be able to use it all. I thought at first log cabin, but I would need more of the dark red then I have. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks so much!

    tigertillman has a beautiful French braid quilt posted today. I think your fabrics would be beautiful in this pattern. Love them.

    I have no ideas for a pattern, but those fabrics are really beautiful.

    Trip around the world would be pretty . You could add a couple of solid colors with it.

    What are wanting to make? A table runner or a quilt? They are truly beautiful fabrics!

    Fat Quarter Shuffle? Yellow Brick Road? Something Bargello? Stretched Nine Patch? I'm thinking on the lines of not a lot of little pieces to avoid distorting the fabric too much since it's so pretty! Good luck, I'm sure it will make a great quilt--can't wait to see your finished project!!

    I think we ned some direction. Placemats, table runner, chair covers, wreathes, table toppers ???? With all those great Christmas prints and a disappearing 9 patch you could have next Christmas done. Sadly I am a procrastinator and on Dec. 15 I began my chair covers and the placemats will be my project for next Christmas.

    A friend of mine made this "Big Block Quilt" pattern with similar Christmas fabrics, and it is gorgeous. Here is a link to look at the pattern. http://www.clotilde.com/image.html?p...4&mode=gallery

    How about a stack and wack. You use material that repeats it self every so many inches. Never have made one myself but have seen others and they are very pretty. Has kind of a swirl in the center of your block.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Stack and whack is a great idea. If you want something simpler, I suggest 9patch, but there's lots of wonderful ideas suggested here. Have fun!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Question Pattern advice

    Quilters......
    I have beautiful fabric that I need a great pattern for. I have 6 different fabric colors, 1 yard of each. All of it is Christmas fabric which range from dark red with gold to off white with gold. It would be great for a log cabin quilt only if I had more red fabric. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! If it's a free pattern, even better.
    Thanks so much and Happy New Year!!!

    buy more red fabric....they do not have to be the same fabric, just go take your stack to the store and find other reds that blend and mix them all up, they will look great together... a famous male quilter, Michael Miller, wrote somewhere (and it really hit home with me) that when a stack of fabric looked 'flat' or 'needed something' or 'didn't go together'...add more, don't subtract... expand the assortment...

    I think the French Braid idea is one to consider

    Me too, but you would need to add more fabrics to this, but it would be a gorgeous French Braid!

    You've got two pages of suggestions in your other thread from earlier this evening.
    Did you not like the answers? and thought you'd give another go?

    For those interested ... the other thread has a photo of the fabric.

    Why not use the red for the center squares of the log cabin?
