    In need of pattern ideas

    I recently bought leopard print fabric to make a lap quiilt for a co-worker. Now I am confused on what pattern to use. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Go on line and type leopard print quilt and browse through images. There are plenty to inspire you. Good luck!

    I just printed out a bunch of free block patterns from Connecting Threads. There was one in there maybe called "something wild" or something similar with a leopard print shown. Not sure if this helps but may be worth checking out.

    This thread may also give inspiration depending on how big the print is. I have seen leopard prints with spots as small as a dime and as large as 3" across.

    remember those ugly pants? Here's what they are now...

    SouthPStitches , I had to go look at CT website. I was curious about the name of the pattern.
    Is this the one? http://www.connectingthreads.com/Pat...__D10107D.HTML
    That would be an nice pattern for large pieces.

    No, several pages into the freebies is the Wild Thing BLOCK Pattern. It's a split nine patch. Could be very interesting graphically with the right fabrics and certainly would be very easy.

    Oh my! That is an awesome block! I really like the pattern that appears.
    I have bookmarked the page.
    Thanks,SouthPStitches.
