    I am looking for ideas to use 5" squares that are a fun print. I want the square to be the accent of the quilt so I don't want to cut them smaller. I would be willing to add other fabrics, sashing, etc.

    I am working on one right now and will post instructions and pictures later.

    Thanks for any help. Barb

    Here is a quilt I have been thinking of making out of 5" squares. It is on the cover of this book:

    Moda has a nice blog with tons of project ideas. When you get to the bottom of the first page click on "older posts" to keep going.

    The disappearing nine patch would be good if you put the fabrics that you dont want cut in the corners.
