We spent a lot of time watching the March Madness basketball playoffs. I love, love, love, watching the college teams and especially the women. This year I noticed the commentators calling the tall girls "The BIGS". I thought this was a little derogatory, but then I noticed that they also call the tallest men "The BIGS". So, OK. I guess it's not derogatory towards the tall women. I asked my husband how long they've been referring to the tallest people on the team as "The BIGS". And he said for a long time. Jeesh. Where have I been? Anyway, I'm going to steal the term and call the Big Prints "The BIGS" too. They need their own special treatment, I think. Don't you?
My personal feeling is that when you use large print fabric, you need to keep the pieces as large as you can. Otherwise, you totally destroy the motifs. I drew up a couple of designs for this fabric, using 10" squares. Here are the two quilts that I made with this fun circular fabric. I'm calling them "BIGS #1" and "BIGS #2".
|BIGS #1 67" X 67"|
|BIGS #2 52" X 64"|
