    What would you do with this fabric?

    I have an idea in my head, but thought I would consult the experts, lol. I am making a raffle quilt (or two, time permitting) for the VW Bug club my husband and I belong to. This fabric was donated to the club by someone I don't know how long ago, and it was given to me to make the quilt from. I would like to do something that looks kind of traditional in a beginner/light intermediate skill level that doesn't take too long. I was thinking the size of a stadium throw for time's sake as the event is in September. Any pattern ideas? The Gina does not like to applique but she doesn't mind to fussy-cut. Thanks in advance for your ideas, and as always I love looking at everyone's pics!

    fussy cut the cars and make stare blocks with the fussy cut cars in the center and use it for borders as well.

    I love the BQ pattern (scroll down) but there are probably some other patterns here that would work too

    A quick and easy pattern is Take Two. Just google "Take Two Quilt pattern". I am currently making that pattern using a large patterned fall themed print and a single color batik for the side pieces. I will be putting a narrow black border and than a wider border of the print around it for more size.

    Just cut 10" blocks and sash with one or two of the main colors. You ought to be able to get a couple done fairly quickly that way. Then tie them instead of quilting.
