Big block quilt designs

What's the best way to show off fabric you love? 
Choose a BIG quilt design. Save the 9" square blocks for another project; just go large. (Added bonus: bigger pattern + bigger pieces = faster assembly!)

If you're looking for a recommendation, we'd like to offer up the "Imperial Star" pattern by Tammy Silvers, available on our website. At 86-1/2" square, this beauty will shine on a bed, all radiating out from the center star. Tammy used one focal fabric and several tonal prints to create a stunning design. And, even though the focal fabric is a packed floral, the quilt is not super feminine--perfect for a sophisticated master bedroom!

Find the free pattern for "Imperial Star" here.

The fabrics?
They're from Imperial Garden, a new autumn-hued floral collection also packed with coordinating tonals. See larger swatches of these fabrics here, and ask for them at your local quilt shop.
