Focus on Fun

I had some darling vintage style fabric showing kids marching in a patriotic parade in my stash that I didn't want to cut up.  So I designed this quilt using large pieces of my focus fabric in the blocks as well as in the border.  I had so much fun making it, that I made a lap quilt with monkeys and a wall hanging with jack-o-lanterns.  This pattern will work for any focus fabric up to 4 1/2".  The blocks and sashing use the partial seam piecing technique.  I used an acrylic octagon template to fussy-cut the centers.  Why not look through your large print fabrics to see what kind of fun quilt you could make?
