    I would like a pattern to use with this fabric. I can fussy- cut or not and can use coordinating fabrics ( suggestions for co-ord. fabrics are welcomed). The 'doily' flower areas measure about 4.5 " square and I can get 45 good fussy-cut pieces.

    Looking forward to your ideas for this.

    Any one with a solid center block, maybe an Ohio Star?
    Please post a picture when you decide.

    Yes, maybe Ohio star with a 4.5" center, fussy cut, and with green points and a light pink or white or silver background. Your block would be 12.5" (unfinished size).

    check out the site LavenderLime quilt shop in Chatt. TN. They have a great easy pattern that shows off 10 inch square that would be quick and easy for this pattern.

    I looked at the Lavender Lime site but cannot find the pattern that you mentioned. Can you do a link to the pattern or give me the pattern name?

    Thanks.

    What if you leave it whole and practice free-motion quilting in and around the designs?

    Or....cut out the nosegays and applique them to another square. Then set them on point with sashings in the bright pink? You could incorporate the little flower bouquets into cornerstones or into the border.

    It's really pretty fabric and hope you'll post a photo with whatever you decide to do. Karen

    I have no idea what pattern to use, but I found it humorous that this fabric appears to be the same colors as the quilt in your avatar. I'm drawn to the same colors over and over again too. :)

    Ohio Star gets my vote too. Keeps the beauty of the flowers and accents the colors. The smaller flowers can be used as cornerstones to a sashing.
