    I came across this fabric and just had to have it. I purchased a yard. Then a month and a half later, I went back to the quilt shop and purchased 2 more yards. Now after looking it over, I am at a loss on how to use it in a quilt. At first, I was thinking about using it as a 6 or 8 inch border. Then I started thinking about fussy cutting it and placing a border around each cut.

    Then when taking the pictures, I noticed that I bought the same print on two different backgrounds.

    I am open to all suggestions. Thanks for any advice.

    I love these ideas. Keep them coming.

    For erstan947 and quiltingcandy - can you tell me more about the beach hat? Are there patterns out there for matching totes and hats? I have never saw patterns for hats before. I must live a sheltered life. lol.

    Thanks for the input to all of you.
