Hi Everyone!

I am making a quilt for my BFF April (LovingIzabella).
She already knows I'm making it and what the fabric is so I'm not giving anything away by doing this.

I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions on a pattern for this fabric. I believe I have about 5-6 different patterns (lots of yardage) and am looking to make a large quilt (maybe 60x80?)

http://www.connectingthreads.com/col...ics__L106.html

Please post your ideas! Free patterns are preferred but I am open to anything right now!

Thanks!

I've done a D9P and a Tube before. Those are ideas I will keep in mind.

I've checked quilterscache but just got so overwhelmed with all the options I thought I might ask people for their opinions.

I don't mind PP patterns or something that might be a little more difficult. She is my BFF afterall and she deserves the best :D

How about stars with the larger prints in the center square? That would be lovely.

Here is something that might keep you occupied for a couple of hours LOL.
There are soooo many free patterns here hopefully you will find something that might suit.

Maybe a call to Connecting Threads would be useful. Since it's their fabric they might have some suggestions that would be a good showcase. Maybe one of their free patterns?
