Okay I bought this great pirate fabric thinking I could easily find cheaper-than-quilt-store coordinating fabrics to make a cool lap quilt for a young boy. It was harder than I thought. Then there was the problem of how much to get since I didn't know what pattern I would use. Got any good ideas?

coordinating fabrics

The stripe fabric is for the backing

The cell phone is to give you an idea of the size of the pirate pattern

Great fabric! I love the stripes and the woodgrain. I don't have a clue about a pattern though. Maybe one of the more experienced ladies.

It's such a cute print - I would have a hard time cutting it up.

Love the colors you bought to go with it.

The snowball block is good for showcasing fabric. Or the pattern I Spy with a twist might work too. Good luck, it should work up nicely whatever you decide.

Me too! I'd use the stripe for a border.

This would be a great pattern to showcase the pirate fabric.

If you have 4 metres apparently this makes the most beautiful One Block Wonder, so I was told by a lady who works at our local fabric store & did one
