    My daughter has fallen in love with this fabric she does not want me to cut it up but to make a "chunky" quilt??? I am not wanting to do squares. I thought maybe a floating fabric with black under the bottom of a block to give the illusion of floating (I have no idea what the patter might be) This is all Michael Miller fabric in the same line. I also thought that maybe the boston commons pattern by Eleanor Burns would work. I thought using the large poppie as a center block and the rest around it. I just need some direction here so I don't make another mistake like the snow white quilt I posted earlier :)

    How about the 10 min block. You could use the 10 inch squares since you have large prints.
    here is the link incase you need it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbTHlGGKMPM

    What about something like this shadow box?

    Nice fabric, I will be interested to see what you go with. I just picked up 10 1/2 yards of April Cornell's Natures Bounty and I'm not sure what to do with it. I had never seen the 10 min block before and found it very interesting.

    When I had a nice fabric I didn't want to cut into, I made the center "whole cloth," big enough to fit on the top of the bed, and then built a quilt around it! :)

    There's a pattern set called "BQ", "BQ II", "BQ 3", that uses 12 1/2" squares of focus fabrics. I think the company is Maple Leaf. (Sorry, but I left my pattern at DS's after making it.)
