Justified fabric purchases...

I have my partners details for the 8th Doll Quilt Swap, which is only my second, and my mind is swirling with possibilities. First thought was to create a design and then choose fabric.
That was until I came across the red fabric on the right and then the sweet spots in red and blues.
Surely I can design something around the fabric.
I also picked up this remnant from IKEA,
(while I was supposed to be buying storage boxes and not fabric or pitchers for utensils...)
And I can already see it as cushions on our lounge with a crochet throw, draped artfully, in that very 50's mustard colour.
But as to the design of the throw I'm not sure.
Any ideas?
