I have made the brick path pattern with both Amy Butler fabrics and some Nicey Jane. They sew up nicely and the instructions were easy to follow.

A simple one would be "Cheaper by the Dozen"by legacy. It call for 12 FQ. I've made the "1/2 dozen" baby sized one several times. with the bigger blocks a large print looks nice.

My suggestion is to tone the fab down with black on black fav with whatever pattern you choose. I've used black so many times with fab that now buy it when on sale.

I love the fabrics. Any of the Amy Butler patterns would work, as would a Turning Twenty.

There is a group out on Flicker called "modern quilts". I think many of the simpler ones would look awesome with these fabrics. Especially those with large blocks with sashing. I think I would use white, but a darker color could work too!

I like those fabrics! Have you ever done a Scrappy Bargello? It's fast and fun to piece and beautiful!

I did a Amy Butler/Turning Twenty for my daughter and she loved it. It really showed off the fabric.

How about a D9P? That pattern works well with large prints.
