    Friend at work gave me this fab asking to make a sofa quilt for her. She provided the batting too. Any suggestions for block pattern?
    Over three yards of first fab and 1.5 of other three.

    This is the size of the print

    You might look in the Black, White and Bright swap thread for inspiration. There were many great blocks created for that swap in crazy loud colors.

    I, personally, love brights so I think just about any block would be pretty with those fabrics.

    Oh good Lord...well, at least the colors coordinate. I would say stay away from the blocky blocks...if that makes any sense? Those fabrics seem to scream diamonds and triangles at me.

    I like things simple and think a Warm Wishes quilt would be great. Since she chose the fabrics she must love them and that would highlight them all.

    I like the warm wishes Idea too, as well as the BQ maple island quilt.
