    Question How to quilt with Provencal print fabric

    I am a new quilter, having started about a year and a half ago. In the spring, I visited Provence, and I bought Provencal fabrics in Aix-en - Provence. I have six different prints, three golden yellow and three brick red. I would like to have recommendations from experience quilters on how to choose a pattern and assemble the quilt for a queen bed. Thanks.

    Since the fabrics are special, I would be looking for a pattern that would feature them without cutting them up too much. You might look at something like Warm Wishes or Shadowbox patterns. Take a look in the QB picture gallery and see they appeal to you. If you are brand new at quilting, there is nothing wrong with just cutting big squares of the fabrics and arranging them in a checkerboard pattern.

    Maybe a Snowball? There was a thread here about a Snowball that was bigger than usual one. How much fabric do you have?

    Try going to Google Images and typing in 'Provencal Fabric Quilts' - there are some really pretty inspirations out there.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
