    For that fabric you just CAN'T cut!

    I think we've all found fabric that we just couldn't make ourselves cut into. I found this main print and just feel in love with it. In my eyes, it's just SO beautiful! So...I set out to find a pattern that would allow me to just use the fabric as the focal point and I think this one is just perfect. It's called the Craftsman and it can be found at http://www.quiltwoman.com/The-Crafts...t-Pattern.aspx. My version is fairly subdued but if you google it, there are some really awesome fabric combinations that have been used. Anyway, I hope you like my version with fabric too pretty to cut.

    You're right, it is too pretty to cut. I like your pattern too. Well done.

    Very pretty quilt!! Also, thanks for posting in the nick of time! I was just looking for this pattern last week, but couldn't remember the name. Kept looking for 'just can't cut it' which is a nice pattern, but I like this one better!

    Oh this is a very beautiful quilt. The colours are great. I love love this style of quilt and will save this posting so I remember it when I use a fabric that I don't know where to cut. Great idea.
