Default Purple bandana fabric

I bought some purple bandana fabric that I just love. I just knew I could come home and have all kinds of ideas for it. Well, I don't. I have decided to go back to the LQS and buy more bandana fabric in other colors and use them together in a quilt. (She had lots of different bandana prints in a large range of colors.) But before I do that, this time I want to have an actual quilt pattern in mind.

So I am looking for suggestions. Currently I am thinking of using only the bandana fabric, but in lots of different colors. Does anyone have any good ideas for me? Here is a piece of the fabric...though it may show up as blue. My camera tends to do that...

Thanks,
Dina

Hi Dina. Tired of Bargellox?? Just kidding. I don't know what to do with this fabric. I have had some red bandana print for over a decade and have never used it. If you need it. send me a PM.

I would pair it with a WOW, and do that disappearing hourglass everyone is posting about:

I'm thinking this would be great with the bandana fabrics. And the tut is there too.

You know, Joellyn, I might be tired of making Bargellos, but it is only temporary. I took stock of my house, and I have 3 Bargello wall hangings up and two Bargello bed quilts out. May be enough for awhile.

Right now I am making a Lover's Knot pattern, and I am having a great deal of difficulty wrapping my brain around it. That's probably because I want to make a size that there are no instructions for..., plus I decided I wanted a few other changes...but I will get there. This bandana one is in the back of my mind and I am ready to move it forward a bit. I'll remember your offer of the red bandana print, but I really need to figure out for sure where I am going with this idea first.

Thanks for the 3 good suggestions. I am also considering a puzzle quilt or Take Five pattern. Got to get aimed in one direction or the other soon, before the LQS sells all her bandana fabric.

I made a chevron quilt with purple bandana fabric like that and purple "denim" fabric. It turned out really cute. I haven't quilted it yet, so no pictures. I got the fabrics from Marshall's Dry Goods which is a great resource!

I saw 3 people doing quilts with this fabric line at the last sewins/bees I was at! they were doing the Twister ruler - 10 inch squares sewn together with the border being the beige color bandana then using that ruler to cut the new blocks and re-sew - it looks awesome!!
