I have 12 printed squares, 6 1/2 inches,  with sort of astrological pictures, in bright colors of yellows, blues, purples, mauves etc.    I want to make a queen-size quilt using these squares but am having problems coming up with a pattern to incorporate them.  I thought of trip around the world, but I thought the squares would be too big.  I have several pieces of fabric in matching colors (I bet my stash is bigger than your stash lol!)  Does anyone have a suggestion?  I want to use at least 4 or 5 solid colors and a stripe in co-ordinating colors.

Looweez,

I personally think I would use a spiral or a star design.  the one below (a string quilt block) can be found at:   http://www.quilterscache.com/S/StringQuiltBlock.html

QuiltersCache.com has some of the most wonderful designs and they are all FREE!!!

I would use a star block too. It just seems to go with the astrological theme. You could make them in 2 different colorways to incorporate all the solid colors you want to use.

A star would really complement the pics.  Would post a scanned pic but don't know how lol.  Would need some kind of a star with a 6" square in the center...........hmmm thinking lol.  Thanks!
