Quilting With Rural Jardin

I've made a lot of progress on the quilt I'm making with the Rural Jardin fabric line.  All 13 Ohio Star blocks are finished!

I am using the pattern Ginger Belle by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.  I've been working on the Irish Chain blocks this weekend and  hope to have the top completed before I go on my vacation in March.   

Thelma of Cupcakes N Daisies and Nicole of Sister's Choice have been using the same fabric line to make Belle Meade from Bonnie Blue Quilts.  This got me thinking what are other quilters making with Rural Jardin.  (Enquiring minds want to know!)  So I did a little research on the internet and found some fabulous examples on Flickr. 

First, check out this fantastic double wedding ring quilt ( Click on the underlined text to see the pictures - I'll wait while you look; just remember to come back because there's more).  It was made by Nicole Kunze of The Butterfly Net.

Kate Henderson made this variation on a nine-patch.

Sewing Daisies used simple squares to create a woven look - very effective.

I'm thinking of using my scraps (though I'm not sure I have enough - might need to buy more) to make this pattern from Bonnie Blue Quilts called A Quilt For Alice

Isn't the internet a great source of ideas!  What did we do before?
