I Have about 2.5 yards if a large floral print, any ideas on what to do with it, cutting it into small pieces just don't seem to work.

Cindy, Keep the blocks bigger at least 6" to show off the print . There are patterns just for large prints. Susan
The example I'm attaching is probably more work than most people would like to do.The square part on side 1 is 8". Side 2 the largest squares are 5" and were the off cuts from side 1. These are just for ideas as both are my original designs.

Thank you for the suggestions, i am looking at the fabric in new light now.
Cindy, check out this pattern from Keepsake, it is called "Garden Twist" and the center of the blocks have a large floral design (you may not be able to see it clearly from this photo, as it is sort of washed out). Then the twist looks like a garden trellis, and when you see the quilt in person, it is beautiful!
Oh, and they sell the pattern separate from the kit for about 11 bucks....
Hi Granny Agnes,
I really like both of these quilts, have you decided how you wish t quilt them?
Have you thought about a stack and whack?
Two suggestions acutally. Either a garden twist design or use it as backing for a smaller floral quilt wall hanging or something similar size. Landscape quilt might also work.
Fussy cut the flowers you really like and then use solids frame the fussy cut and solids to make coordinating blocks. I am in the middle of doing something very similar right now. I am going to post pics tomorrow as my brain has gone completely out on how to quilt the quilt.
