    What would you do?

    I purchased this fabric in the summer and had forgotten about it until I was going threw some of my sewing things. I'm not really sure what to do with it I think I have over 2 meters of it. Should I make it into some kind of quilt? A purse of bag maybe or do you think that pattern is too much for that? I love this fabric when I look at it my eye is drawn to the lovely birds and all the different flowers it's a happy fabric I think. Let loose with your idea's can't wait to hear them. Sorry the pictures kinda dark it was taken with my cell phone camera and my shadow's in the corner lol

    TY

    It's lovely fabric. I think I might fussy cut the birds for the focus fabric in Warm wishes. I'd maybe use turquoise and peach in the pieced blocks?

    It's very pretty. Whatever you choose I'd make sure they were big enough blocks to capture the images.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I absolutely love your fabric! I think it would be really pretty used as a border, as well as in the quilt itself.

    Sorry, but I would fussy cut around the birds or cut them up so they'd be unrecognizable. I don't care for birds on fabric.
