    The blocks are supposed to be 'traditional' to go along with this very beautiful, traditional material. I need some help in coming up with something that would do this quilt justice. I just love the material and I love what everyone has done with it so far. Now I can't think what to do next!

    Thank you! I'm working on the last row of a Round Robin and the lady has asked for traditional blocks to go along with her old fashioned, traditional material which is soooooo beautiful, and I can't think what to do. Everyone else has already done what I would have done and we're not supposed to repeat what others have done. So I posted these, hoping someone could help me come up with an idea.

    Looks like you have quite a few pinwheels type squares and only one star. So I think I would go for a star block. Did you try quilterscache.com? They have some great free patterns.

    One block I like a lot is Card Trick Or a Monkey Wrench.

    Thanks, Mamabird, that's a good idea. What do you think about alternating that with one of the nine patch variations - maybe set on point with HST's around the edge?

    This one has both star and pinwheel http://www.quilterscache.com/M/Marth...StarBlock.html

    I think whatever you decide will be great. Such beautiful fabrics.

    I agree, I love Card Trick, they are both on www.quilterscache.com

    I think it wants to have some applique.

    What about a honeybee block.. you'd get a 9 patch and a bit of applique also. I think it would be great with these..
