    I have some fabric that was given to me for Christmas that really is too pretty to cut. I have researched the pattern by that name....Too Pretty to Cut...but I am not sure that is what I want to do with it.

    Does anyone have a favorite pattern that uses large pieces of one fabric? I have two yards of fabric. The print is large.

    This was posted today, and I thought it was a great (and easy) pattern for large scale prints:

    Much more effective than making a same-old D9P.

    Maple Island quilts has a BQ pattern that looks great with quite a large pattern piece.

    This is a great pattern for fabrics you don't want to cut.

    Here's a slide show I made that lets u use large squares in each block . Puzzle box is also very pretty and has a nice size center in each block.

    have you looked at the living large pattern book. It is by Heather Mulduar Peterson. I used it for a quilt where I was in love with the fabric.
