Attic windows is a good one. It can be difficult but if you search there is always an easier pattern. You can have one large window or a different animal in each window, then there is always I spy, I am sure this group will give you all kinds of ideas.

Snowball (?) pattern is good for showcasing a main subject, too!

Warm wishes is another good pattern for showcasing fabric. That is a free pattern on the McCalls web site, I think. I'm wrong-here's the site:

You have to fill out a survey that takes FOREVER. It wasn't worth it to me.

I have some quilt blocks that a lady no longer wanted that were mostly wild animal prints. There are wolves, bears deer, and then you have the jungle. Most of them are made square in a square. Some are also framed like a large log cabin. I haven't decided what I am going to do with them yet, colors are so different that I don't know how I am going to put them together in a quilt but may make several small quilts which would work. So you could do what you want. I have even found a log cabin block that was fussy cut and used as the center block and that was cute also. Hope you find something, keep us posted.. Would love to see what you came up with.
