    All those colors are terrific...they will make a soft looking quilt. If you want it to be "stronger," maybe add a darker shade of pink?

    Helovesme: would you share the name or where I can purchase that pattern? It looks like one that would be fun to do.

    First off, do what you like, unless it's for someone in particular, then do what they like.

    Having said that, I like very simple designs and the "Modern Quilts" fit me perfectly. They use a lot of solids and especially grey.

    what would you do with this fabric?

    The Pink in the middle would be beautiful in a Spring Wall hanging with Tulips. Maybe make a great big Tulip paper-pieced and some surrounding Violets, ect, with some of the rest. They are too pretty not to use!

    I've never made a dresdan quilt, but I think your fabrics might just work on one of those too. I would probably add a couple of bolder fabrics, but I like bold.

    Hi, just thought I would jump in, I am new here and feeling my way around. You have chosen some soft, pretty fabrics to quilt with. I like your color choices. Do you like to applique? For me I am an applique nut. I start piecing and wind up adding applique to everything I do! LOL. Personally, I would add some more white for say twenty- ten to twelve inch blocks- and make a cute Dutch girl twin quilt or maybe a foot of the bed coverlet or lap quilt would be nice. Those patterns are easily found on the internet, and all kinds of cute ones also.
    I would take away the one on the end, the blue, and add a soft, solid lavender in it's place to compliment the pink and use them to make the hats, shoes and baskets etc. out of the solids. Also the sashing. The flowers and other fabrics could be their dresses, umbrella or other designs you wanted to create. If you wanted to leave the blue in, you could add a Dutch boy and make his pants and shoes from it. Applique adds all kinds of possibilities to quilting. Just my opinion. Everyone's quilts on here are beautiful. Hope to get as good as some of you eventually.

    There are lots of patterns that can be used scrappily. All but the right hand fabric would do nicely for a varied background.

    LOL, I'm joining the ranks that were going to send you to your very own D9P but was going to suggest doing the scrambled version. I think the darker fabric to the far right would serve as all the center blocks and perhaps you would have enough for a narrow border, too. This would make a good choice to tie the quilt together. If not enough of that one, then maybe use the pink instead since it has extra yardage.
    I never tire of D9Ps but if you don't want to make another one so soon, then I think your fabrics would make a lovely soft Hidden Wells quilt.

    On second, and third, thought, I vote for the Hidden Wells quilt. There is a great thread here on the board with a group who are making and have made them. Just do a search for that name and you will see them.

    I really love your fabrics, they are beautiful! The first thing I thought was a D9P. I think the gray would look fantastic as the center square.

    I like all of the fabrics and think it would make a great shabby chic quilt. I would not make the pattern overly detailed as these colors will all blend some what. That is why they are great for a shabby chic quilt. Maybe even a log cabin with the grey in the center block and as an inner narrow border.
