    Block ideas for Vera Bradley Fabric needed

    Whew! I just finished one wedding quilt and it's time to start another. My youngest brother is going to ask his longtime girlfriend (since JH) to marry him. She loves Vera Bradley and I've found a source for fabric. Now I need suggestions for blocks. Since a lot of the fabrics are bigger prints or kind of loud, I'm not opposed to bringing in some supporting fabrics or fussy cutting. They're more modern than traditional but if I'm going to use VB prints (read: pay for VB) I'd like to highlight them in some way. The quilt would be queen sized.

    Here are the some of fabrics I'm thinking I might use. Nothing's set in stone but here's the direction.

    Thanks in advance!

    There is a range of BQ (big quilt) patterns available for big print fabrics. I think there is BQ1, BQ2, BQ3, and I think BQ4. Have a look and see if you like them.

    I just tried a google and found some patterns but watch the name doesn't change. I googled big pattern quilts it changed to big blocks. Some lovely patterns I love the Mediteranian fabric.

    These are lovely bold fabrics. Hope to see the finished quilt.

    Morning Dotty, you are on line early today.
