    I have several large pieces of fabric that all have very large prints, mostly florals.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what to make these into. I am so used to working with little prints, I am at a loss on how to use the large prints.

    If you want to focus one fabric, Warm Wishes might work, or Square in a Square 2. I also have another that might work. You can google Warm Wishes or put that in the search spot here. Let me attach the other two, and if they interest you, I will research to see where I got them.

    I like the Irish Chains I've seen with the centers (non-chain parts) done in the big print. Really pretty...

    How about a shadow box pattern. They actually recommend using large prints...

    There's one called Just Can't Cut it. :) That looks beautiful.

    There's a series: BQ, BQ2 and BQ3. All are wonderful for large scale prints.

    I have floral print fabric that I had no idea what to do with it. Thanks for sharing.

    If you really want to have some fun...try one of Ricky Tims "Convergence Quilts". They work very well with large prints and the end result is unique and amazing.
