    Cathedral windows, if you wish to preserve the integrity of the flowers,or some form of Stack and Whack (maybe not the right spelling) if you are willing to use the repitition of the pattern and make something crazy, but in general even a simple 9 patch will work, because once you cut it and sew it up again it will look great.

    Depending on how large the print is, you might try snowball blocks.

    How big are the flowers? They seem pretty big in the picture, but it can be hard to tell. I am seeing an Ohio Star with the poinsettias in the center block and reds or greens for the star points.

    Pretty fabric. Looking at it, all I see is a Double Irish chain...fussy cut the fabric into squares and use complimentary colors for the chains :)

    Hi crkathleen,
    I googled your christmas quilt idea and here is the results! A whole list of projects to choose from. I just love christmas projects.

    Sometimes if you check at the fabric sites they have a pattern to download for it free.

    What a great site. Thanks, I saved it on my favs.

    I see a OBW if the repeat is either 18" or 24". I'm hooked on them though! It's a beautiful piece.

    Beautiful fabric, I've got an idea - send it to me! LOL

    Seriously though, I agree with the suggestions above - some way of making those flowers the 'star'! - I especially like the Ohio star idea with toning fabric for the points!

    Can't wait to see what you make!

    It's funny I thought cathedral windows too and stars. :lol: I also went online before i posted and found bellaonline. (thanks for the link. didn't see those there earlier) I thought a stack and whack but to afraid to try it. :shock:
    I didn't think about the nine patch but I also saw a pattern awhile back (don't know the name of it) it was a 4 patch on point with a small sashing around it and at the points in the sashing there was a square of fabric in a light color. Anyone familiar with that pattern?
    A double irish chain or snowball would be pretty too....
    The poinsettas are around 4 to 5 inches.
    Thanks

    That fabric is saying it wants to come live at my house. Tee Hee I like the idea of an Irish chain. Would be beautiful.

    I remembered this runner at connecting threads that you might be able to adapt for your quilt ... It is the herbal tablerunner one.

    I suggest the Baton Rouge block. A center square, where you could center one of the flowers, using solid matching reds and greens for the framing strips. The block is in the United States Capitals Patchwork Patterns book. If you'd like a copy of the pattern, PM me and I will send you a copy of the pattern.

    I made the herbal table runner and it goes together fast. It would look fantastic. Mbybe you want a tree skirt to match. use the flowers around the edge.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm torn between two patterns, one is the Baton Rouge block from MissAnn and the other is the Garden Patch variation from quilterscache. http://quilterscache.com/G/GardenPat...ock_Page3.html
    Thanks again

    Hi , what lovely fabric, how about a 4 patch kalidescope? easy to do, need only 4 fabrc repeats any size sq you want. i sew a lot of charity quilts and have used the 4 patch. another idea seeing as the flower is larger use that fabric for the border mainly and you will get the full effect of the fabric. cool grandma
