I would put it together, how ever you decide, 3 panels.2 panels. THEN I would hand or machine quilt around each flower, that should make the quilting close enough for most battings. I think hand quilted would be FABULOUS!!!

It's perfect for the BQ2 pattern. It's my go to pattern for large prints.

I love this pattern for large prints! The blocks are 18"... and it's so simple to make.

whole cloth quilt! That fabric is too pretty to cut up.

With your square template you could place it on the repeats and cut but not like a kaleidoscope. Then alternate the squares with sashing in between also.

I really don't want to cut this fabric as you can see how big the print is and I do like it...I think cutting it up and sew it back together would lose something of the fabric..

Belfrybats i do like the quilt on connecting thread you posted with the 10 inch block and the sashing and I like the panel idea but may have some trouble figuring that one out..

MaureenNJ thanks for the heads up on sewing three panels together instead of the two, that makes more sense to me with a full center panel and two half panels on each side.. I may go with that one..

I did pull some fabric that may
go with this fabric and I took a picture of the fabric with a 12 inch square on it so you can see how big the design on the fabric is...also it is laying on our king size bed so you can see how wide the fabric is, the kids only have a queen so this may work with the half panels on each side, and a boarder..Thanks again for your help

if anyone else has any more ideas I would love to hear from you

There is a lot of good advice here. I would go with the 3 piece top. But first I would show the fabric to the Son and DDIL, and make sure they like it too. Kids don't always have the same taste as ours. I know my DIL doesn't .

I think maybe a 4 patch posy or a stack n whack, although it might have a little bit of "open" spaces for that. A backing would be nice also.

I think that sewing two whole strips of the fabric together, matching the design; then adding a border or two to make the quilt size that you need - it would be beautiful.
