    I think a quilt would be beautiful,however I would be worried about having to wash it to much.

    My first gut reaction upon seeing this GORGEOUS panel was full size quilt, but dogsgod brings up an excellent point. The durability of the fabric should definitely dictate how this will be used. I love the background fabric you chose it compliments perfectly.

    Wow! That is beautiful. I say make it into a wallhanging and put it where you can see it all the time.

    It was in some fabric that a friend brought to me from her sister. I have no idea where her sister got it. There was two of them. So, maybe I'll make a quilt and a wall hanging.

    Well, normally I'd say go big or go home, but after hearing the concerns over washing this, I may have to change it up & say wall hanging. Whatever you make, please show us when you get it done!

    So beautiful!! Is it really silk or could it be a poly that looks like silk? I would say quilt, but not if the washing will ruin it. Some tiger fan would love hanging that beauty. BTW, beautiful background, too.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I'm sure its not silk. It just feels kinda like it. Its probably a type of poly. Anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm going to go for it. Since I have 2 panels, I'm going to make both. I'll be sure to post the outcome.
