Using large prints is always a challenge. I am always attracted to them, but, they are more difficult to design with.

Snowbirds is a contemporary quilt design to show off those large print fabrics. A great project to show off your large prints that is suitable for all skill levels…

I designed this pattern around a Kona Bay fabric of birds and flowers. To me, the subtle grey lines through the fabric look like a snow storm, hence the name. I was able to use large pieces of the feature fabric to highlight the birds then used coordinating fabrics to draw attention to some of the colours in the fabric.

This an easy pattern for a beginner or a more advanced quilter who may have that special piece of fabric that requires large blocks to show it off.
