    I have some sunflower fabric that has the yellow sunflowers on a offwhite background.. and I also have sunflower fabric that has blue/white checks with the yellow sunflowers. I am wanting to make a quilt with those fabrics but I can't seem to find anything. Oh and I have some offwhite solids to go with those sunflower fabrics. I have looked at quilterscache page by page and didnt see anything that I thought would look good. I DO NOT know how to paper peice so is totally out of the question. Can you all help me figure out what kind of pattern I could use. I am still in the beginners level and have a hard time understanding patterns so that has to be a consideration. I appreciate everyones help. ;) Thanks in advanced.

    What about combining a nine-patch with a snowball....
    Or a 4 patch, alternating with a big square? Sounds like you would want to showcase that pretty fabric....

    Have you had the fabric long? I've been looking for some sunflower fabric with white or off white in it.

    Im not getting rid of any of it. I have always wanted to make a quilt with sunflowers. I got this from a bunch of fabric I just bought this past week but I have seen this fabric at walmart many times. You can try there.
