    I have a pattern called Easy Breezy that uses a 1 1/3 yard piece (I think that is for the crib size, you can also make a throw size) as a center panel and then it has a border of scrappy squares. That might be an idea depending on large your piece is. But a pattern like this could easily be adapted to any size center panel you want. Here is a link:

    That being said - I would still take my time in deciding. No need to rush into anything. Very cute fabric.

    I love fussy cutting then building the design to highlight the fussy cut pieces.

    I'd go with it as a full horizontal width, no cutting. then I would add other horizontal borders to get the height and then add framing borders.

    That is super cute! I would hold onto it until the perfect idea hit me.

    Some log cabin type blocks would be cute.

    I love that fabric!!!!!!! There's something about vintage fabric that speaks to me. I love the almost primitive (compared to nowadays) pictures.
    That's adorable :)

    I don't know if I could cut it. I've fussy cut things before and you lose a lot of what is next to it if you know what I mean, so it ends with you not having too many blocks to play with.

    If you have a favorite little girl in your life, maybe a couple of pillows for a bed. Put a cute little ruffle around and a different color back and maybe you'd get 2 pillows out of it.
