    Wow! You all are great! Thanks so much for your ideas!

    It was kinda funny! I choose a pattern and wanted to start the quilt. But when I was going to do the first cut I stopped cuz I like all the patterns and changed my mind every 10 minutes haha.

    Well, after some hours I started and for sure I will post a picture here. And what pattern made that race? This will be a surprize

    I like the idea of a contemporary quilt with these colors and pattern...a design that is fresh, modern and easy going and I would use black with this, as well. you'll get a jewel box look. Gorgeous fabric!

    "Oh, and I don't want to make a bargello (too many tiny pieces). I am thankful for every idea."

    Look into bargellos. NO tiny pieces. Only strips. you sew strips together until you have a "fabric" of the different colors, and then cut those the other way and resew to make the beautiful bargello look. Sooo easy!

    How about this pattern? http://www.quilterscache.com/W/WovenRibbonsBlock.html Looks very easy to make.
    It would be stunning made with your fabrics.

    Not sure why one pic posted larger than the other, but I really like the smaller pic "PRISM". The pattern looks very simple and quick...

    I think a French Country Farmhouse would be gorgeous in those fabrics. The pattern is in Quilters Magazine, Not sure which issue, but you should be able to search it online

    I'm intrigued ... I googled, but did not find anything.
    So could you please show us to what you are referring?
    Thank you!

    I was also thinking that that would make a stunning quilt with the colors you have or possibly a lone star where the colors would go form dark to light then back to dark. Really depends on how much you have of each fabric.

    I like Chinese Coins and use the brown for the background.

    I saw this quilt in the Keepsake catolgue that arrived in the mail today. You may need a couple more colors but this is a very cool quilt.

    If this link doesn't work the quilt is called Xanadu quilt pattern.

    Consider a pattern from Raidant Sunshine & Shadow....Just a LOT of 9 patches, but the results are stunning!! Wish I had a picture that I could post of the Blue batik that I made for my grandson.

    I agree with jodiemarie. A black main color background withose colors using a jewel box pattern would be great. i made a quueen size one once and it came out beautiful. I entered it in the county fair and won a third place ribbon. I was cery excited because it was one of my early quilts.

    Too late for an opinion, but I wonder which pattern was chosen.

    I'd like to say in the kindest way I can, you need to add some prints to this grouping. The same pattern in different colors is just so........Take these with you and go shopping - the girls in the shop will have a great time too. Remember it isn't always about color. There is value and these fabrics need something to play off of. Now that's my opinion. Amish have been doing plain fabrics forever and people love them, but I don't like Amish quilts. I love scrappy quilts and that might not be to your liking.

    Can you please advise as to the manufacturer and line of fabric, it is gorgeous. I can see a jewel box made from these fabrics, it would be fantastic!

    These are beautiful fabrics. How about a DP9 with some black for sashing. I can see this in my mind and I would love it
