Need block ideas
Mon, 11-16-2009 - 9:45pm

I have a large piece of fabric that contains all the colors in are bedroom. This is intended to be used on the summer quilt I hope to do over the Winter. The pattern is a plaid. I have 4 complementary fabrics to go with it. Any ideas how to use the plaid? The obvious one would be use it for the center square of a block. When looking at the design, I can also see the possibility of cutting it into triangles with the strong color band on the bottom of each triangle.

I've seen some really attractive bear paw and maple leaf blocks done in plaids. Lots of triangles there, I fear...
