    I purchased material to make a 4 color quilt. One piece of material has a larger print and picks up the colors of the other three. I'd like to make a qulilt with a larger piece with the larger print and use the other three as accent. I've looked all over and haven't hit upon what I'd like. I looked into Attic Window but that uses 3 colors and don't know if I's have enough material. Could use some suggestions. Thanks - Rita

    What about warm wishes? It uses a large block alternated with a rail fence type blocks. The rf blocks are alternated in the direction they point so they look like they are framing the large blocks. I don't have a picture, but a search above should yield something. Several have been posted.

    Consider using the large fab print to make a posey, then Warm Wishes to frame, with the other 3 prints.

    what about attic windows using the large print as the window. Two for the sides of the window and the fourth for sashing between the blocks?

    I looked at this block and think it is to busy for me.
    Thanks anyway.

    You could also do a rail fence with the center rail being bigger and having that bigger print.
