Of course, my answer is-- Sew Them!!
I guess the few years that I was not heavily into my quilting group (moving from my quilting friends and having babies, set me back a bit)! I did not realize that there had been this quiet unspoken transition from Calicos, to Batiks to Thimbleberries to well the Large Retro-ie type fabrics...(ok maybe not exactly in that order, but fabric has really changed since my first quilt.
Here is a fun quilt, we whipped up with Heather Bailey's Pop Garden / Bijoux Prints and some Giant Ric Rac....So fun!!
