    Need advice

    I'm pretty new to Quilting - took some classes and am hooked. My son brought me back some fabrics from his Hawaiian vacation (my kids know that my best gift is fabric). Some of the prints are large - What would be the best pattern to use to show off large prints?

    Lynnette how many grains of sand are there on the beach? First you need to think about what style/size of quilt you want, wall/lap/bed. I have some patterns for larger prints but am about to go out for the day so if no one else has ideas for you I will look back in tonight. But to get you started think about medallion quilts, the uncut corners of the twisted nine patch or any of the over sized single block quilts. You can google some of these or I will explain when I have a little more time

    I am sure the other ladies will have some great ideas for you as well.

    Have fun.
