    My local quilt shop has their very large print florals on sale. I love florals, but have not liked anything I've seen made with them. Any ideas?

    Woo. That's FABULOUS! I'd have to practice my mitered corners for that baby!

    How about a stack-n-whack?

    I saw somewhere a lovely quilt with dark squares, and a fussy cut flower in the middle. It showed up nicely against the dark background. Probably a raw edge applique, but I didn't look that closely at it.
    It was done with the same size plain square template, which had been set on top of one sample flower. Then the quilter had outlined the chosen flower with a washable pen. This way she could put it on top of each flower and get the exact picture, multiple times. I've seen this suggested on this forum, but forgot who did it this way so can't praise her or him. Clever way to do it, wish I could have thought of it myself!!

    Another member, Barnbum, made a gorgeous log cabin quilt out of large florals. Look up her name and you'll find it.

    BQ patterns from Maple Island Quilts are also good for large prints.

    I would use large print florals for Stack N Whack, Borders and Backs. I'm sure you will find something. The main thing is don't miss that sale! LOL

    I don't know what size the squares are or if there is a pattern.
    PM the member that posted the quilt.

    Seems like it would be easy to make.
