    What pattern would you use for this fabric?

    Hey everyone --- I have two yards of each fabric below and want to really show off the richness. I don't know how to applique yet. If you were making this, what pattern would you use? Also what backing would you suggest? thanks for your ideas. -- Julie

    With all those beautiful prints I would choose something that showcases the large prints.

    I'm fond of medallion quilts...here's a really nice one from Jan Douglas Designs. Personally, I don't see where the applique is (it says there's some in it), and think that you could do it without:

    And her website: http://www.jandouglasdesign.com/shop...es-x687906.htm

    Specifically check out Origami Quilt Pattern and Reflections, as both of these use nearly the same color fabrics as you have.

    I just checked out the Jan Douglas site, what beautiful patterns. Your fabric would work great on one of her designs.

    Or Sidelights. Or Asian Road.
