    cute fabric...put a small border and then Rail Fence Blocks around it? Might use a dark brownish red fabric to make the barns pop and two other shades of brown for the rail fence blocks.

    I was thinking cut a panel size piece (or keep it the size it is now if you like it that way) and then add a "fence" border so it looks like the animals are fenced in.

    Here is the link to a quilt that I did in a similar fashion. That would be one option you could consider.

    That is a great idea. I'm gonna borrow it! I also have a big chunk of fabric I really don't want to cut and some coordinating fabrics to go with it. It was the poppy print from about 3 or 4 years ago. It was pretty popular and was gone from my lqs in a week! I had to go online to find the parts. I lusted for it so bad and then it is still in a plastic tub waiting for love!

    That's a good idea....and you could also fussy cut squares and add a couple of colors that popped which would add a bit more interest. :-D
