    Default I love this fabric! Now what?

    Hi everyone! I LOVE this print! I love it so much, that I bought out the Etsy shop.
    But now what do I do with it? What pattern do you recommend? I'll have the Sea and Brown solids for coordinating colors.

    I love anything paisley, too. How about Warm Wishes to use your three fabrics.http://oldwww.quiltmaker.com/pattern....html?idx=5185

    That would make a pretty Walk About quilt. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...-quilt-pattern.

    You could send it to me... Ha! I, too, love anything paisley. You were smart to buy it all! I like Claire's idea. That's a really pretty quilt and it would definitely make your paisley the star!!

    Since you really really love it, do you have enough to make it a backing? Then you could find another coordinating print for the front

    I have enough for the backing and on the front. I bought 9.5 yards of it. I admit it, I have a fabric addiction.
    I think I've settled on the Rhombus quilt---Using the blue as the background, the pattern as the medium tone, the brown as the dark tone. All I need now is a light tone on tone paisley print for the light tone. I guess I get to keep shopping.

    The fabric is gorgeous. I love Claire's pattern. It's simple but effective. If you have leftovers, you might want to make pillow cases or a travel bag, like the one I made with paisley fabric.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
