    I love a Wanda's blog:

    http://exuberantcolor.blogspot.com/2...ppy-quilt.html

    You can scroll around her site and look at a bunch of her quilts for inspiration.

    Thanks to y'all all for all the suggestions! Here is a link to the line of fabric that it is...
    http://www.paulanadelstern.com/fabri...ne=Patternista I did buy this from Missouri Star as it was offered as one of their daily deals. I saw it and fell in love with the vivid colors. It also reminded me of some artwork my son had recently created so I knew I had to have it. I really do hope to keep the blocks large to show off the prints with whatever design I go with. Here are a couple of pictures that my son designed on his computer.
    As soon as I decided what to do with this layer cake, I'll be sure to let you know! I'm leaning toward the DeNQvo!

    How about a square in a square bordered in black. That way you won't loose too much of the print. Look forward to seeing what you decide.

    Those fabrics are out-of-this-world beautiful. I think I would not want to cut them up into small pieces for sure.

    That looks good to me.

    Quiltingcrazy, why don't you use Bubblejet to prepare fabric, iron it onto freezer paper and get your son to print it for you?

    I have quite a few of these fabrics in my stash. I think I have a yard of about 6 of them. I can't bear to cut them. I have been trying to decide for quite some time how to best use them. I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

    I found a site that has this line and then some! I may have to buy a yard or two to use for borders and what not!

    I haven't read all the pages of this thread, but I definitely vote for NOT cutting them up into small pieces like the D9P would do. I'd either do this DeNQvo one linked or what one lady called the Potato chip quilt by just sashing these pieces. These are really neat pieces and should shine as they are--

    I love that fabric. I am looking forward to seeing what pattern you decide upon.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    How about this pattern that I used to make my niece's quilt? It keeps your fabric pieces intact.

    I think your fabric is just gorgeous! My first thought was strips (OK it was my second thought, first was how much fun I could have with it - lol). Or a Yellow Brick Road. Please post pics after you've finished you new quilt. Have fun.

    I immediately thought of the 10 Minute block - it uses 5 - 10" blocks. One in each corner and one in middle. If you used solid black or coordinating fabric for two of the blocks and maybe a different one for the center. I just made two 10 minute blocks and they're super easy and you get a lot of bang for the buck.

    I recommend the 10 minute block with a black center and black sashing. That would look amazing!

    Thanks, detective, for finding this for me. It's just wonderful that everyone on this board is so willing to help others! I love this pattern.

    I Haven't had time to read all the replies, but my thought is why not go to the designer for ideas?

    http://www.paulanadelstern.com/quilt-gallery/index.html

    The above takes you to Paula's quilt gallery. Search there for ideas....and she does cut these up. I'd use them in pinwheels or flying geese type blocks, black would be my background fabric...or the red or blue from the fabrics. I'm not big on yellow or apple green...but these with black sashings...wow!
