    I think a basic braid would go good with the colors and the central design. Beautiful fabrics.

    there's a book and patterns on the market by the name of Bella Bella Quilts.

    you might get some great ideas looking at the designs and many of them utilize large panels in the center. there's a gallery section on the website and you can see the large panels and what people use for blocks around it - here's a link

    CQ2...that fabric is glorious. The first idea that came to my mind was to do a Celtic Illusion by Karen Combs. klue is right about doing something from Bella Bella, but those are horrendous, :shock: unless you have someone that is familiar with doing them. I speak from experience. You could also make several wall hangings and then put them up as a grouping.

    Can hardly wait to see what you decide.

    The first thing that came to my mind is wide borders of with celtic braids in them. Maybe appliqued with bias tape??? I love this panel and the coordinating fabrics, all are just stunning :D :shock: :D :shock: :D

    why did you have such a hard time with these quilts? most of the blocks are very simple and the harder blocks are all patterned paper piecing - she even provides the pattern so you don't have to do anything except sew on the line.

    Try fussy cutting the medallions - the rebordering them as frames ie attic windows or ledges (gives appearance of 3D quilting).
    I made my daughter a quilt from a fabric of cats hidden among flowers. If I can find the picture I'll post it.
