    Large Floral Quilt Pattern?

    I would like to make a quilt out of large floral print fabric, does any one have a good pattern that would work?
    I am trying not to make large square blocks of the floral print. But can't use too small of blocks either...
    I guess using the big floral as the border might work....

    Help!

    The fabric is Rosa by Timeless treasures. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/browse/6824

    Thanks
    Ginny

      I have used the Sidelights pattern (or a variation on those lines) with the large print fabric taking the place of what looks like the panel.

      For the smaller blocks, you can use solids or small prints that coordinate wit the large print.

          I love the mormor pattern for this. Fast and fairly easy, and shows off the big print, without just being big blocks.

              Could also do an Ohio star pattern and fussy cute the flowers for the center square and use the larger floral print for the borders.
              If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

                Double Slice Layer Cake? Would provide for a nice display of the different fabrics without cutting them up too small.

                Or, frankly, keeping it simple: sew blocks together without sashing and maybe add a border. Block size: 5", 6", 8", or 10". There is enough color and "movement" in this fabric that it would look stunning in a simple block piecing.

                  Maybe fussy cut 6" blocks, and then snowball them?
                  Or try a pattern I bought just for large prints, called "Hatched" by https://www.quiltinaday.com/shoponline/book/190675

                      I second the kaleidoscope block that would be absolutely beautiful.

                        What about this recent tutorial Jenny did a couple of weeks ago ?
                        It's called the "Spring Rain Quilt "

                          The sashed half hexi makes a good pattern for large prints.

                              One block wonder would be beautiful in that fabric!
