    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?

    I've been looking at Kaffee Fassett books. Love how he takes a trad pattern & updates it. Just starting snowball blocks with autumn leaf prints.

    Those fabrics are beautiful! How about a nine patch with alternating single blocks cut from the large focal prints? Set on point would be gorgeous. I have a cheat sheet if you need any measurements.
