So I bought some fabrics to make a quilt for my mother for Christmas, but now I'm having trouble finding block or quilt patterns to go with them. Here are the fabrics:
The scales of the prints may be a little off as I scanned the fabrics then resized using GIMP, but hopefully you get the idea. I think the problem is that I decided these are Jane Austen-y, early-nineteenth-century prints and that they might not look good in a traditional American quilt block (like Ohio Star or whatever) and probably won't look good in a more modern design either. Another problem is that the fabrics are all really similar in terms of color value (which I realized when I was buying them but couldn't find any coordinating fabrics that were medium or dark), so any pattern that relies on a lot of contrast may not work well.
I hope some of you can help--I really don't want to start just cutting out 8" squares.
