Some Fabrics Are Just Too Hard to Cut Into

Hey, do you have one of those scenic fabrics or large prints that you just don't want to cut into? Most of us do so today I want to share with you one way you can preserve that beautiful fabric by showcasing it in a quilt but still enjoy cutting it up so it is not just sitting in your stash waiting to be used.

Here's what I did with this Hoffman Fabric Route 66 fabric.

In this pattern, I showcased a large block of fabric in the middle and smaller triangular sections in the corners. Around the border square-in-a-square blocks, it was fun seeing which part of the fabric was displayed.

I made a similar design using a special anniversary fabric also made by Hoffman Fabrics - this time a bed quilt...

.... I added poppies to the corners for added interest.

Both patterns are available on my website: Scenic Route 66 and Scenic Paradise

Let's take a look at some other fabrics to see if they might work in the same way. How about this fabric? I think this would work great in the same quilt setting! I could even add red, white and blue around the border to enhance the American feel.

...or perhaps a seasonal quilt would be fun too.

I could use a different season in each different corner....

Do you have a fabric that would work? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below, or send me a photo.
