    Please help me pick a pattern for these fabrics!

    I've cut my yardage into layer cakes (10" squares)....I was thinking about TATW, but, I don't want to cut these into such small pieces. They are so pretty to me, I want to show off the fabrics as much as possible.

    Thanks for any ideas!
    Also, I'd like to to end up being at least queen size *I like a good amount of drape, we fight over the covers a lot*.


    ~looking for fabric...if you have some you would like to sell, please PM me~

    I think the 10 minute block is quite pretty to use with 10 inch squares. In the center of each block you could quilt a design like the brown fabric on the left in the bottom picture.

    Great fabrics!

    If you were thinking TATW ... why not stick with it, using your layer cake pieces.
    It could be very effective done as a jumbo size block, just that it will have a different look from the normal smaller TATW block size.

    I think they would look good in the Magic Square pattern. Jenny at Missour Star Quilt Co. has a tutorial for it using layer cake squares so it should work?
