My DH knows that I've been looking for my zodiac sign in fabric for ages. He knows I love celestial things, and that I've done a lot of studying of astronomy.

So, today he tells me that he bought me fabric that he thinks I'll like - and that it should be arriving in the mail any day now.

Aquarius fabric!!

And, not only that, but he said, "I don't know how much yardage goes into a big quilt, but I got you 8 yards. Hope that's enough."

So... what would you make with it??

That is some pretty fabric. I have the same problem of trying to figure what to make with fabric. I am sure someone will come along with some good suggestions. Will you post pictures of what you make.

oh I certainly will post pictures of whatever I make. :)

I might actually get a quilt just for me. The man did good. I can't wait till I actually get it.

Blue and green Storm At Sea or maybe Mariner's Compass? It's beautiful!

I'd do a star quilt with all sizes and shapes of stars all pieced together and I'd use the fabric your sweet DH got you as a backing so you don't have to cut it all up in pieces. The fabric is beautiful and your DH is a keeper!

What a sweet husband. Would the fabric work for a stack and whack?

What you have shown us here, it looks like a nice fabric .... that I'd like as a backing. What about a lap quilt?? .... go backwards here and figure out how much you'd need for the backing.

Then what is left, work with it for the front .... I'm thinking of something a fussy cut, or just cut the remainder into blocks with other fabrics as joiners to build a nice design.

This may seem odd, but you asked ... and I shared what came to mind!
