I would probably go with a BQ pattern.. depending on how big your repeats are..

There is a pattern (I think it is Maple Island) that uses large squares of fabric. I have seen this pattern made up and it is so pretty. You could use black sashing and this would look real nice. Love your fabric BTW. Good luck on your decision.

I did a search, and Timeless Treasures does have a cannabis plant print. Rather pretty, but it most certainly is that.

I would definitely do something like snowball larger squares with a cute bamboo material. Just my thoughts.

Another thought but this quilt depends on the width of the fabric:
It was recently posted here on the QB and I am going to use it with some giant brightly colored pansies fabric I have. Might just put a border on it to make it large enough for a charity quilt.

I love the pattern "Sidelights". http://pin.it/BONVav- You can use the focus fabric whole, and put interesting small squares of complimentary fabric around the periphery. (Maybe bamboo?)

Soooo I came here once again for some brainstorming on quilts that use big pieces of this fabric.

So, so cute and great at emulating the zoo pandas. I want to see it in a quilt.


The fabric:


Maybe just a border around it and if possible cut extra piece of batting in shape of bears and quilt around each bear to make them pop

I would leave as big a piece as possible for the middle, add borders of whatever kind to get the size you need. And I would quild around each bear and emphasize each of their features, some of the leaves and flowers. I would not do an all0over quilting on this one.

[QUOTE=canuckninepatch;7602179]I love the pattern "Sidelights". [url]http://pin.it/BONVav

I almost linked that one too. The sidelights could be a 4 patch one block wonder made w/ the other repeats.
