    Wow, I love it. I wouldn't cut it all. Use it as a quilt top as it is, it doesn't need any embellishment.

    Checkout: www.mountainpeekcreations.com and you can see ideas on how to use yardage that is too pretty to cut up.

    Would be a shame to cut that up in blocks.

    You could use it like a panel and add borders around it. It is beautiful! I love Michael Miller fabrics!

    That was my thought- it's just too pretty to cut!
    Thanks, friends :)

    I'd do a medallian (spelling?) quilt surrounding it with borders
    1st a very thin black, then squares cut from this fabric mixed with solids that are in it; another very thin black, more squares and solids....
    No border - I really dislike borders

    Gollytwo, that sounds really pretty but you lost me on the medallion part :D

    What do you mean??? I need ideas- this fabric came and it's really nice but all mixed together I don't think it would work. I like the idea of the solids and black so clue me in on the medallion. My brain is slow today LOL

    DUH- I just looked at one - do you mean a large piece for the center, right??

    I have a better excuse- I'm watching too many baseball games :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
