    Quilting Question on using 3 fabrics

    I found in my stash 3 fabrics from the Afternoon Tea collection from Legacy Studio. I am sure this is a few years old. I did find 2 of the fabrics on Google, the 1st and 3rd design. If put together, I know I will have enough to make a back for a quilt. One fabric is an all-over flower design with a large design on it called Afternoon Tea Master Rose. The 2nd is basically the same design but with a medium all over design called Afternoon Tea Rose Vine. The 3rd is some tiny flowers thrown about in a smaller design called Afternoon Tea Rose Set Dot. Any suggestions on how to use these 3 together without adding more to it?
    I did think that maybe I could cut them in to strips and do a jelly roll type design but also thought I would throw it out there to see if anyone else had any ideas. There is a light blue background on all of them and they coordinate beautifully.
    I still can't download photos or I would post a photo of the 3 of them.
    The front of the quilt is very colorful batiks in 10" squares which I am going to do an X through them. This is just for my bed and know the front won't match the back but I am using from my stash and I would be able to have a 2 different sided quilt.
    Thanks for any ideas!

    Oh those are pretty fabrics!!! If you do something with a jelly roll type or strips you sure going to end up with lots of extra seams on the back. Are you sure want to do that? I would a D9P if have enough yardage.

      My first thought is to turn the fabrics into wide vertical strips on the back. Vary the width of the strips, though, for visual impact. (My 'second' thought hasn't come to me yet! )

        How about just using the large floral as a panel and framing it with the other two prints?

            Oooh like all the ideas, but leaning towards Snip Snips. Think I might have to pull a light blue to add around the outside if I do that.
            Sylvia - if your 2nd thought pops in, let me know!
            JJ - thought of the D9P but thought that would give me a lot of seams too. Of course, I haven't even made that pattern yet.
            Preeti - pretty quilt! This is one thought I thinking, thanks!

              My favorite 3 fabric [I think] quilt is Warm Wishes. It showcases a large print very well, too.

                Look at the post today with the link on all the possibility of a JR. It would be cool on the back.
