I love vintage barkcloth and other large florals, so I drug them all out and sorted them by size. Most of the pieces are drapery weight, but I wasn't picky if the right piece was quilting cotton. Some are even rayon!
Then I drafted a HUGE 48" block that has lots of different size pieces that are large enough to show off the fabric. I cut and arranged on my design board until I was happy with them and sewed them together. I'll make four of these blocks and give them a 1/4 turn to add more interest. Then I'll add borders as needed to fit the bed. What do you think?
Speaking of my design wall... You may remember that I had a wonderful almost 8' x 8' wall in Tulsa. Well, no room for that here! Mr. HHQ (aka Bill) cut down the batting covered wallboard to fit two bookcases. I can take it down or leave it up as I wish! Love it!!
