    I also agree with getting 3 or 4 patterns together and let the bride choose which she would like. Have fun.

    I would use a different pattern for each block, your color choice is what will make it a country feel quilt.

    You could make this a sampler and pick blocks that would describe the couple. I see you are from Illinois, "Illinois roads", "Lincoln's Platform", a block about the Prairie all come to mind. My SIL is in marketing so Market to Market was used in theirs as well as a "Wedding Bouquet" block. And all the fabric lines suggested are great.

    Your avatar is a block that I have been wanting to make. I've seen a photo but do not know what it's called. Can you tell me what it is and where I can get it? Thanks, kitty

    I would bet she means scrappy. Show her some pics and see which way she leans

    I would check with her about what she means by country. she might mean certain style like scrappy, or tranditional patterns, or she might mean certain colors. Perhaps planning it together might be fun.

    I created a country/wilderness quilt for my daughter. I used log cabin, maple leaves, pine trees, and others to file it in.

    (Hopeful my picture will come through.)

    I agree with Log Cabin, If I'm not mistaken the middle square of the log cabin is for the "Hearth" of the home, I think the log cabin symbolizes the home really well.

    I agree with Laceybritt on the patterns for a country quilt. And as others said the more traditional patterns. There are many sites on-line that give instructions for many different blocks.

    In our neck of the woods, it is one with chickens and chooks and wheat sheaths, windmills and barns.The odd goose and dog or scarecrow is generally there as well as cats and mice,sunflowers and perhaps a horse.

    a Sampler would be nice, but any traditional blocks would be nice. Would sure set down with her about colors and what she is thinking.....country to some one thing, others, something totality different.

    It would be a great idea to pick out a couple of country patterns and have her pick one out and I would also take her to the fabric store to pick out her own shades unless you would like to surprise her with the pattern and shades.

    When I think of country I think of the north star block. It is such a pretty pattern and very country.

    Have a look at this site:
    http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/index.shtml

    They have a "tour" of the different quilts, it's a great way to see different patterns, and even how different the same pattern looks with different fabric treatments. And they are all "country" style.
