    Have several fabrics with large floral prints (bouquet, etc.)
    and need suggestions for quilt top pattern, or blocks.
    Nothing found in my few quilt books/magazines.

    I love the BQ quilts from Maple Island. Large focal blocks and quick to piece.

    I had a beautiful flower bouquet that I fussy cut and put in a snowball block, then alternated churn dash blocks to mAke this quilt here:

    The film strip pattern at this site would look neat with large florals. http://quiltiger.homeip.net/

    You could make "4 pack stacked posie" pattern by H.D. Designs. Or the book by BLOCK EXPLOSION by Cindy Casciato for Leasure Arts 2004 has a lot of nice quilts using large floral blocks.Below is one I made form this book.

    I just went looking for large florals; they are hard to come by. I'm planning on making a quilt; the book is called Garden Twist Quilt. It looks like a lattice with flowers showing through. This pattern calls for 7" patches sewn; you need large floral bouquets for this one. I'm attaching a pic of one of the quilts in the book, if you can see it.
