    A french braid would be great for these fabrics. It is pretty easy too.

    That is an amazing quilt top, you did a wonderful job. I hadn't seen the pic before, and I think that pattern might work for those colors she choose.

    klgreene this quilt is beautiful, I bet your son and daughter-in-law were so proud to receive it.

    Thank you, but they haven't received it yet. I have to get it boxed and mailed. But they have seen pictures. I have two in the works for my DGD too, will post them when finished.

    Blank quilting has a log cabin type called Illusion that would be perfect for these fabrics. I made one like it, just had it long armed and it is beautiiful and very bright, (my preferred types.) Karen Combs also has some neat patterns like that you may like.

    Any quilt in the Turning Twenty series would be great. I can see that fabric made up into the Stained Glass quilt.

    Check out the Blank free pattern called 'Shades Cascade' to use with gradated color fabrics.

    Good luck in chosing a pattern. Both log cabin and a braid would be marvelous!

    there's a pattern called a Puzzle Quilt - a type of stack and whack, but it's very easy, uses I think 12 fabrics that you cut out all at the same time; your fabrics would be gorgeous in this pattern.

    LOVE THE PICTURES OF THE CATS, AND RABBIT. I HAVE A WESTIE THAT WHEN I SPREAD A QUILT ON THE BED FOR A PICTURE, SHE'S RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. MY PROBLEM, I HAVE MY PICTURES ON MY DIGITAL BUT CAN NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME GET THEM ON THE COMPUTER WERE I CAN FIND THEM. DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING WRONG. BUT, REALLY LOVE YOUR PICTURES. THANKS FOR SHARING

    Love your color choices! Good luck in finding a pattern. A hint about getting an even 1/4" seam: Put a pack or half a pack of extra sticky post-its parallel to your 1/4" seam line. Allow the seams of what you are sewing to side along the post-it. You will not have to watch the seam and it should be even the length of the fabric.

    You can also place layer after layer of narrow masking tape to make a wall to slide your fabric along the line of masking tape.

    I would suggest a fan. I had a cheaters' quilt, (preprinted) and when I layed the whole piece out on the bed and it reflected in the mirror, it was beautiful. But I was doing craft shows at the time and I decided to cut it up into small pieces and sell little quilts. I have one in my bathroom and I still love the fabric. Just a suggestion.

    MlaceRuby, what about the great block in you Avatar, that has 10 or more colors and would look great in the very center, with blocks or strips on the side, what is your pattern?

    ME TOO!! I so love the whole line. I think there are 139 colors now in the Fusions 7 line. I'm trying to get my LQS to order all of them (she has about 60 colors right now). Every time I help a customer find fabric, I always steer them towards the Fusions...and it never fails. They find something they love. I buy the Primrose, Evening and Grass colors by the bolt!

    You might look at the pattern Flavalicious or one of these two Willpw Garden or Waves, by Hoffmanfabrics.com, these are free patterns to print. I love your fabric. But then I am partial to any of the shades of purple, my favorite color.
