Well personally I would chop it up as small as possible, but I can appreciate that this is for a 22-year-old male. And the fabric actually is pretty neat. It would make an interesting OBW with whole parts for some of the blocks and the border. Or if you have a lot of it, use it for the border and backing and make something using those colors for the front. Be sure to show us what you did, because whatever you do it will be interesting.
