    I think this would make up nice with your fabrics, if you have another solid to put with it. http://www.free-quilting.com/detail....435&cat_id=434

    Here's a suggestion, no pattern necessary. Cut three 12" blocks, each featuring one of those beautiful flowers, sash with 1" of a purple or gold fabric, then make a 1" or 2" border of your green fabric. Let that gorgeous fabric take the spotlight. To use the name of a pattern I just bought to express my feelings about that floral -- I Just Can't Cut It!!!!

    I do love that floral print. I would have to look at it a long time before I cut it.

    I would make square in a square wih a small sashing of one of the purples between blocks and bind with the same as sashing or the green. It will be beautiful whatever u decide. I love the fabrics.

    I would fussy cut three of the prettiest flowers and set them on point with the pattern of your choice or a solid as setting triangles. Name:  100_0259.JPG

    I think I'd use a square of the floral on point with the french braid design out from both ends of the square. It all depends on how long you have and how much work you want to do. A French Braid is quick but very pretty.

    Thanks AZ Cottontail Quilter. I decided to go with your suggestion since it is simple and quick. I made my outer border 3".

    I like this one too. I have enough fabric left to make this one, but I need to get some more fabric to go with it.
