I have some pieces of fabric that I'd like to use in a quilt. They are large scale florals that I would prefer not to cut into very small pieces. Anyone have recommendations for a pattern? TIA

A pattern I like is Northern Lights:

http://quilterscache.com/N/NorthernLightsBlock.html

If you make it 12" and make the large triangles all one piece, the large triangles will be 6" which will show off the large florals very nicely. You can make the printed squares a coordinating solid which would be lovely.

Any pattern that has a solid color in it would work. That way, the solid color gives the eyes a place to rest.

Pretty quilt block

The center 4- patch could be one piece of fabric so rather than piecing for squares make it one large patch.
