    Wildflower prints

    I have been buying yardage of the Moda wildlife prints for about 2 years now. I think I have about all of them - some pieces larger than others. I've bought them because they "just appeal to me" but now I am stuck. I have googled and looked and cannot find a pattern that grabs me and says "this is the one to use for these beautiful fabrics". Any suggestions? I appreciate any help you can give me. I read the board every day and see so many beautiful things. Thanks for all of your inspiration. Have a great day. Sue

    this is my favorite. It takes 8 inch squares cut on the diagonal. It's called Summer Porch and the pattern is in "Quilt Through the Seasons" Eleanor Burns, Quilt in a Day.

    This would be the time to use that 40 percent off coupon for Joann's. This book has several patterns so you are getting patterns for less than $3 each when paying full price for the book.

    I assume "wildlife prints" is a typo and you have wildflower prints. Right? Flowers not animals.

    One idea is to use the BQ pattern by Maple Island Quilts. Here is a sample.

    i'm all for "Quilt Through the Seasons". it keeps the prints large enough so you can tell what you are seeing instead of chopping them into little pieces. maybe you will find another pattern, but i think that the larger you can keep the fabrics, the better the fabrics will work. best wishes.
