Muted Florals

Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful holiday! My Christmas was filled with gift cards to quilt shops and several to the Fat Quarter Shop. I can not wait to start purchasing more material! So here is some more material I purchased when my local quilt shop was closing. The price was just too good to pass up but now I need to figure out what to make with this material. I've really been wanting to make a quilt out of pinwheels, but don't think this is the mateial for that. I used some of these fabrics in the first quilt I made so I'm sure I can throw a few solids in with these to break-up so much of the yellowy/gold colors. Have you ever purchased material on an impulse? Well in the near future I will post my impulse purchase that I have had for 7 months and just don't know what to do with it...it's pretty material but it just doesn't grab me now like it did the first time I saw it...UGH!

I used to buy on impulse, but not as much now..
I do love rose fabric, I think I have a couple of them myself..
They would make up into a very pretty quilt..add some soft solids and go for it.

I would add some solids and make half-square triangles with 1/2 solids 1/2 floral and the play with the arrangement until I liked it! And my sewing room is FULL of impulse purchases! I am curbing it a lot now, but it's hard!

If I had enough money for all of the fabric I would love to purchase on impulse, my house would be exploding with fabric! Love those pieces you picked up!

Such pretty fabrics. If you're not wanting to loose the fabric design with cutting, how about something like this http://handmadebyalissa.wordpress.com/2008/12/18/land-sea-quilt-pattern/

I think we all buy on impluse especially whe we first start quilting because we want to make everything! I'm trying not to do that anymore. :)
