    What a beautiful group, love it!!!
    I am in a similar predicament with a quilt I am working on. I have been searching through Quilters cache for blocks that have 4" centers for my fussy cut. I do not know the size of fussy cut you want for your focus fabric.

    I would suggest 2 extra fabrics, one a solid teal for some small accent squares, and a black for contrast. That would give you 5 fabrics to work with to compliment that beautiful fabric.

    May I ask the name or manufacturer of the fabric?

    I forgot to mention, one block that I made with a fussy cut was Sulabugs Jan 2010 BOM.

    It might take me a while to find the names for the others as this has been a WIP for a while. Let me know if they would help.

    Beautiful combination.

    The last time I purchased some fabric "on sale" I made sure to pick up fabric that went together....now I just have to figure out what to do with it - just like you.

    I'll follow this thread to see what develops.

    you better get more fabric while it is available if you are going to make a quilt larger than a wallhanging.
    Any pattern with large center will work.
    Also suggest you get one coordinating fabric that is darker than those you show.
    Since fabric comes and goes by nightfall you need to decide on pattern and get what you need NOW as it might not be available tomorrow or next week.
    You will need more if you plan on doing borders.

    Swquare in a square would look good in these fabrics. With that large a print it realy doesn't need amall detailed pieces as you won't be able to see it in its full beauty

    Any star block would be pretty with this group of fabric, too.
