    I agree with you, I can't imagine a quilt made with those. The black dot fabric looks cool though

    post a pic of the fabrics you want to use. maybe we can help you come up w/ a way to use them. I think you need a solid tan, biege, of white, black and etc. Use your prints spairingly

    I have most of the collection that goes with the blsck background floral that is 3rd from the left. I cant remember the line but it is so soft and pretty.
    Take out the zebra like print. Maybe a large star with square in square as center set on point with sashing.

    I don't see anything wrong with it.....other than its not my colors but if it was more put together it would probably look very good.

    Love the fabrics - maybe more contrast in the first block - lots of prints are in it...
