    My daughter wants me to make her a quilt using this fabric. I will probably combine it with (mostly) reds and blacks and maybe some black-and-white music notes fabric. (Dark colors are a practical choice since various cats will be sleeping on her bed and all the cats are dark-colored.)

    I didn't expect her to choose this fabric as the feature so I'm coming up short on ideas.

    Looking for suggestions, please!

    I think it is stunning. I would do Warm Wishes with black and green for the outside colors, red in the center. Black outside border.

    This morning someone posted a 10 minute block with a pink rose in the center. I wondered what a full quilt would look like with the right combinations of fabrics - just a thought.
