    what pattern?

    I have these 3 john deere prints and a very cute animal print. I would love to make a quilt with them, but I am not sure what pattern.

    If I cut them up too much I will lose the pictures. I don't think I would use all 3 john deere prints on the same quilt, but if I could just get started using one of them I think that would help with the other 2

    You folks have any thoughts on what pattern ? Thanks

    First one that comes to mind is easy peasy Snowball block with alternating blocks of complimentary fabrics. I can't believe I'm giving suggestion as I'm usually the one asking this question :0)

    To me, these would look cute as wof rows. The alternating rows could be pinwheels, or 4 patches or just about anything. A little boy would love it. And, I would use every one of them.

    The other thing you could do is add a few more fabrics and do a bargello type look or a simple Around the World, Eleanor Burns style.

    Since all of them have a checked background, I would use one as a focus fabric and pull the colors from it. Making any pattern you like on the front. Use the fabric as a back. They are cute fabrics, I can see why it would be difficult to cut them up.

    Yes it is Jenny Doan. She did a trunk show in Lawrenceburg, IN a couple of years back. It was a good day

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts...I will keep kicking ideas around for a bit

    Except for the border, I would not cut them up, but use one for front and one for back. The other for a backing, and find a John Deer panel for the front. Use the border for a border, or for blocks on the front of the second one.

    On the animal fabric I would fussy cut the small squares and add borders to enlarge the block. Jordan fabrics has a good tut. on u-tube on doing this, then using the border on top and bottom of quilt if not enough to go all the way around.

    How about Warm Wishes? use the tractor fabric for the solid blocks..and the border fabric for the border. You could alternate tractor fabric for the blocks or just use one for the front and the other on the back. The barnyard animals would make a cute border.
