Ideas Please

I have this gorgeous pile of patterned silks on my sewing table waiting for inspiration to strike. There is about a yard of each pattern, but I'm reluctant to make anything with them because they are so special. These fabrics came hand-picked from China by a dear friend as a wedding present; what a great wedding present, huh?! I could not have asked for anything more perfect! (As a matter of fact, I did ask for her to bring me some Chinese fabrics:)

So, I am wrestling with what to make with them: it needs to be useful, or beautiful, and something that I can always remember my friend by. Any thoughts?

Think of the BEST gift for someone to use it for. Then make it for yourself. I find it is ALWAYS easier to make something fabulous for a friend. Once you have your can make it for yourself, guilt free!
