Large scale prints

Over the years, I had collected quite a few Oriental-style prints, many of which had large design motifs.  They were much too beautiful to cut up into small pieces.  So, when someone came up with the awesome idea of I Spy quilts, mainly made for kids, it seemed like a nice idea for these fabrics.  I cut large hexagons of just about all the prints I'd collected, and used a really nice Japanese-woodblock-type print of ocean waves as the setting triangles and borders.  You might want to consider something like this for the large-scale prints in your stash.  Some fabrics are just to gorgeous to be cut into tiny chunks.
