    Patterns for big prints

    I am interested in quilt patterns/books that are good for large florals, big prints. I know there are some, but just can't remember.
    Thanks

    Here's a few that come to mind ........
    * OBW, 4PP, SAW, Grandmother's Fan done as a kaleido, etc.
    * Square in a Square (in a Square)
    * Rail fence with plain blocks inserted
    * Warm Wishes
    and many many more!

    Perhaps show us the fabric you are wanting to use, along with a ruler/tape measure so we can get a sense of the size of the print.

    OBW is the first one that I thought of. I find them fascinating and a large floral print could be dazzling. Depends on the repeat tho.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I go with this lady who wondered what OBW is. There are many times that initials are used that I don't know what they are and simply can't come up with it, even with all the DH and DSIL etc. There needs to be a page listing all of these that those who aren't as adept at coming up with the words for the initials. I almost won't even say IHOP instead of saying the REAL name, or KFC. I'm no dummy; but my mind just doesn't work with the shortening of the real words. So if we could just have a place to go to see a list of the initials with the words, it would sure be a BIG HELP in getting the true meaning of the posts shared.
