    I was wondering if anyone had a quilt pattern suggestion for this quilt block. I'm making a quilt as a gift for my daughter's wedding. I bought 5 of these quilt block, picture on the block measures 7.5 x 7.5. I thought of using the five in a nine patch idea for the middle of the quilt but don't know what else to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It will be a queen size quilt.

    If it was already posted and you are having difficulty locating the link, you can go to the top and click "my topics" and you will find the other responses. The fabric is gorgeous. I would probably put a border or two around each of the blocks to make them bigger as you are doing a queen sized.

    Why not use the other two in coordinating pillowcases? Make sure you post pix when you are done. I would love to see it.

    oops... just saw you moved the topic to get more responses. sorry. 8-)

    Janice,
    If you read the original post, it was under "Introduce yourself" and one of the replys did suggest that the topic be posted under the "Main" section to get a better response. Also, I think this user just signed up today & learning her way around the board just like we all had to when we joined.

    Have you ever done a 'round robin'? Your 9 patch would make a wonderful center & then you can add 'rounds' to make it the size you desire.

    If you do a Search for 'round robins' you'll find lots of pictures for examples.

    Are you looking for a traditional pattern, or something more modern? If modern is what you're after, I could see the pictures like tiles down the center of the quilt, surrounded by squares and rectangles of her favorite colors or the colors of their bedroom. Sort of abstract.
