    Gorgeous fabric. I can see it as a wall hanging.

    Take a peek at Margie's Cheater Quilt here on QB.. I don't know how to get the link here, but I did a "search" for "cheater" and found it again.. Her quilt is fantastic, and I'm sure yours will be, too!

    You have a lovely piece!

If it does bleed, give it another go in the tub and check to see if any colours are bleeding into the cream. If it is good, then dry it.
    I would then use it like wholecloth panel, sandwich and quilt around the different patterns in the panel.
    I totally agree with Tartan. This would be the best way for this panel.
