    I just opened a package from my daughter who lives in Australia. She sent me 1 1/2 yards of this beautiful cotton fabric! I am so excited. I need suggestions on what to do with it! Maybe a quilted wall hanging???? What do you think?

    Very beautiful, a wall hanging ,or if you want a large quilt carefully cut out the blocks and frame them with nice colors.

    It is so beautiful I would be afraid to cut it. I guess I would make a wall hanging, but I have no other ideas

    I just finished a quilt top from "9-Patch Pizazz" that used some large blocks. It's so pretty, maybe use it as a border.

    FANtaustric!
    I'd make some into a big purse/ tote bag. Maybe a pillowcase, but not sure I'd want to lay my head on some of those critters!

    That is awesome! When I get fabric like this, I hate to cut it up cause there is only so much. I would be half tempred to take a big piece and use it as the center of a wallhanging!

    I see some fussy cutting in your project. Great fabric.

    It could also be the center panel for a quilt, using borders and fabric to enlarge it to a lap or twin size. A quilted wall hanging would be lovely, too!
