I found the PERFECT fabric for my friend's baby girl (due in March).  It's Castle Peeps in the orange/red colorway.  I got 1/2 yard cuts of 5 of the fabrics. Here's a link (I don't think I can post pics yet). http://www.etsy.com/listing/58778298/castle-peeps-by-lizzy-house-12-yard-set

So now I need to find a good quilt pattern that will do justice to this awesome fabric!  I want to make sure that I have big enough cuts to show off the fabric.  I was thinking about picking up some solid white, cream, or pink to use to offset the Castle Peeps.  Any ideas for patterns?

I found a cool pattern when flipping through quilt books at the library.  I adapted it a bit, but it's just perfect for highlighting theme fabrics.  I'm making another one right now in a different theme.

Here's the other one I'm working on: 

The inner strip (theme fabric) is 4x8 finished and the border strips are 2x8 finished for a finished block of 8x8.  But naturally, you could use any size you like.

Yarn or Fabric

The disappearing 9 patch would be great - keep your nice fabric in the corners and your accent fabrics in the center Wink
A snowball quilt would also be fabulous... anything that you'll be able to keep big pieces of fabric.  You can also alternate a fabric square with a pieced block done in complimentary colors too.
