    Ophelia quilt question

    I bought two Ophelia layer cakes from MSQ. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...lia-10-squares

    I want to use this for my husband and I in the form of a queen size quilt. I am looking for suggestions as to what to make. I love old fashioned patterns and I have liked some of Jenny's tutorials. Do you think the large orange peel would look good with this fabric? Or maybe something like the prairie flower? Suggestions to get me going would be great! Thanks!

    This is one of my favorite fabric selections. I made a Quatrefoil from it if I remember correctly.

      Oh, I really like that quatrefoil, as well. It has a bit of an old fashioned flower look to it, as well. I actually was considering it. Did you get a solid for the cornerstones?

        I really do like those colors! But, I also dig the story of Ophelia!

          I like either quatrefoil or the prarie flower.
          If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

            I would love to see a photo of this, if possible. It sounds like you and I have similar tastes.

              If it's for you and your hubby, I would choose a pattern that is not so "girly" or "flowery" (hate to be too stereotypical here).

              The fabric is lovely and actually has nice "manly" / neutral colors. Maybe patterns like:

              Double Slice Layer Cake
              Alter Ego
              Disappearing Hour Glass

              Oh, there are so many that would go well with this fabric -- you can't really go wrong!

                I bought 2 layer cakes to make a Quatrefoil quilt as well! It is on my "future projects to do once I find the time" list.

                  I would love to see a photo! I can't believe that two of you ladies did the same with the same fabric!

                    You are so right... you can't go wrong. When I purchased that fabric, I was thinking along the same lines... that it would be something my husband would like.... and he does. I am going to go check out your suggestions.

                      I used the coral/red and a ferny green for the four patches and used nice creamy muslin as the background. I will try to post a picture a little later or tomorrow.

                        Jenny did a tutorial of this fabric line. The tutorial was Under the stars. I ended up making a crib size. That fabric was perfect for it. I took a pic of it and uploaded it under my 2016 album if you want a looksee.
                        Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

                          Friendship star sashing quilt would work with this fabric also.

                            You could do some of the more traditional quilts like Broken dishes,Dresden plate,etc..
