    Hello Everyone! I hope all you Eastcoasters are staying warm & busy! Here's my dilemma. My DH found a corvette fabric for a quilt I want to make for my dad. However, I can't seem to figure out what pattern to use. I stared at it for about an hour today trying to get it to "speak" to me, but I got nothing. Any fabulous ideas? Thanks in advance for your help! :-D (oh, sorry about the quality of the pics, used my phone!)

    Here's the main fabric

    and the accent fabric.

    You could even use the cars for applique.

    How about just use the 'vette fabric as a panel, use the other fabric as borders then quilt around each car?

    warm wishes is what it screams to me, but mainly because ...

    You might have to make the blocks bigger to fussy cut them so , ... a panel sounds good, too.

    That's what I was thinkin'. Maybe with a narrow border all around of the 'vette fabric to tie into the panel.
