    Help finding a quilt pattern

    I want to make a queen sized quilt as a Christmas gift. I want to fussy cut a large block with a rose on a black background and use greens and pinks along side. I am asking for ideas for a fairly simple quilt pattern with which to do this. I saw a picture on this site some time ago of one I really liked using those colors, and I would use that pattern if I knew what it was. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks so much in advance.

    This is a nice pattern, Nana. Thanks for posting it. It looks as it it will let me put some of my large prints to use.

    I vote Warm Wishes too. You could also look at some of the Big Block patterns.

    Yes, Warm Wishes is a good pattern for your fabric.
    Here's another one you might have seen on the Board that would work well with your planned fabric.

    Three Completions!!!

    The rose fabric was one I had purchased sometime before, just because I liked it. It sat waiting for sometime, til I decided what to do with it. And then the next challenge was finding the trellis fabric.

    I also vote for Warm Wishes. If you can't find the last fabric, just make all of the alternate block "borders" the same.

    Those are adorable! I keep seeing all these neat wonky blocks & I want to make them but I guess I'm just too anal. Are they messy & awful to make or are they liberating? I love yours!
