    BQ pattern does 12 inch blocks with strips around. or you could make snowball blocks or churn dash.

    I would deffinatly use it for a boarder fabric and like the one in the post do three boarders in this fabric one in the middle and one top and bottom and in the empty space maybe a d9p that used the green and a lovely red and this fabric. that would be nice also.just make sure that the boarders don't touch the fabric in the d9p's. this is just my first thought. or another thought is do a star type block with this fabric fussy cut. and get maybe some goldish colored fabric and red for the star s and the green as the background fabric? just another thought.

    I agree, BQ by Maple Island would be perfect and would whip up fast

    Do you have the book "9 Patch Pizazz"? That would be great fabric to use

    This is my favorite pattern for using a fabric that needs to be showcased.
    I like this idea too, adding another fabric to the two you have :D:D:D

    I think I would fussy cut the blocks and surround them with two different colors. (Or more if you want to) Say your green, a light green and a red pulled from the fabric. Then to puting it together. . Lay out your blocks pleasing to you and sew them together. You could be very exact about this using all red in the center and surrounding it with the light green squares and the lastly the dark green. The fabric is busy, so I would think that keeping it simple would show off the fabric best. Then I would use what ever color I had in the center blocks for the sashing.

I think it would be the PERFECT pattern for your fabric you will lookd as if you are looking out the window of the hustle and bustle of the people on the street.
    All you need is a light green to go with the dark green for the window sashing.

    I love the fabric where did you find it on line? I would love to buy some and make a couch throw for my DD and yes I would do an attic windows.
    Great idea!!

    I found it, it's called Christmas Time - Merry Main Street, by Alexander Henry. Fabric Shack carries it.
