    I was wondering if anyone had a quilt pattern suggestion for this quilt block. I'm making a quilt as a gift for my daughter's wedding. I bought 5 of these quilt block, picture on the block measures 7.5 x 7.5. I thought of using the five in a nine patch idea for the middle of the quilt but don't know what else to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It will be a queen size quilt

    You could continue making 9 patches in the flower colours, or repeats of whatever you use in the flower 9-patches
    I'd stick to fabric that reads as solids so as to not distract from the flowers.

    And welcome

    Hi from Bakersfield, CA!! I would do the 9 patch like you were saying, then use that as a center medallion and do several different types of pieced borders around it in complimentary colors.

    Are they Calalilies? (sp)? I think it will be so beautiful when you get it done. One of our daughters had those flowers in her wedding . . . truly lovely! I would go for earth tones that matched. Enjoy the process!

    Amazon.com, just do a search for calla lilies.

    Wow! Your daughter's quilt will be unique! I just got through searching the Amazon site (3,756 pics of fabric), and that block was not there. I guess I could have missed it, buy my eyes are sore. Hope you post a picture of your completed quilt! Have fun!
