    What is your favorite pattern to use with large scale prints...those fabrics that are just too pretty to cut into?

    Thanks in advance!

    Turning Twenty is one of the first patterns I turn to when I really want to show off the fabric.

    I like the BQ quilt patterns, simple and designed with large blocks to show off the fabrics

    Don't know if it is still available, but I have a Thimbleberries pattern called "Waiting for Santa" that has some nice size pieces to show off larger print fabrics. Many other patterns by them also have larger pieces.

    A few years ago I saw one in one of my quilting magazines and am sorry that I didn't mark it or write down the info but it used large triangles or diamonds that seemed to just merge into each other, using large scale prints and it was gorgeous!!! Have seen some with large triangles since that are similar and I have some fat quarters of Sympohony by Moda that I want to do something similar to that with. Also, in the last couple of days I noticed some of the Symphony prints listed for sale. It is a year or so old so I hadn't been able to find any more until recently. Might add to that collection. Very bright, deep colors. Love it!!
