    I went to Moline, Illinois, thursday--the 17th, and helped with cutting out pillowcases, and, christmas stocking's for the military. I brought home 40 pillowcases to sew up. Anyhow Denny Carstensen, and wife Sandi, and me,and 6 other ladies was there. We talked about(me & denny) at 1 time on Eygpt, and artifacts. Anyhow, he brought, a book(of eygpt), and 8 yrds, of eygpt print material. He gave me 2 yards of that print. The question I have for any & everyone is, what can I do with it. I hate to cut it up. I thought, of cutting it in 1/2, and sew the 2 peices together

    Holy Cow!! It's beautiful!! You have so many color options in there. I have never seen anything like it. I would hate to cut it up. But, you must make something really awesome with the fabric.
    Good luck!

    Awesome looking fabric, but don't have a clue for it, other than maybe a stack n whack, but you don't want to cut it. I'm sure someone will come up with an idea for you though.

    That is so beautiful. I think I would either treat it like a panel & add coordinating borders, or use it as backing so you can enjoy the full effect of the fabric.

    Beautiful fabric Don! If I cut it I would want it to be in large pieces. That's just my opinion. Not enough to do stack n whack. Oh will be anxious to see what you do with it.

    It is, indeed, a gorgeous fabric. When looking at the full piece laid out, the repeats of the pattern rather stick out. I would probably fussy cut those and use them in a quilt that looks like looking through windows [can't think of the name of that pattern].

    I would leave it as a whole panel and add small blocks around the border of coordinating fabrics. It is very pretty. Did he say how much that fabric cost from there?

    I'd have to use it as a panel , then really nice borders to set it off. Beautiful fabric!
