    I think it would make a cute "Warm Wishes" quilt. You could use it for the focus fabric and make the rail fences out of coordinating fabrics. I think it's cute!

    So cute! I'd use it for a baby girl who's mom likes things that are baby cute but not over the top "girly".

    I agree with Terry. The little porcupines scream fussy cut.

    I thought they were hedgehogs ---whatever they are, use them in a cut large enough that they're not cut apart, like the center of a snowball block, or fussy cut, etc. They are adorable!

    I was also thinking "Warm Wishes". Be sure and let us see what you come up with.

    My first thought is that it would be adorable as backing fabric. I am going to have to look for some of this next time I am at JoAnn's. Thank you for sharing this.

    This pattern seems perfect for that lovely fabric IMO http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...e-t198357.html I have since found out the pattern is called Fractions, all I know is that it is super easy and fantastic to highlighting a pretty fabric that you can't bear to cut up too small

    I would use the shapes as inspiration and the fabric as a focus. My first thought was alternating blocks of bear paw or lady of the lake to show spikes made from coordinating fabrics and even maybe a brown half. This would give the impression of a "modern" spiky hedgehog with the print being the alternating square.

    Darling fabric; I think I'd do either Warm Wishes or the blocks (corners) in a D9P that don't get cut up.

    No ideas here, but super cute fabric. I may have to add some to my stash. It would make a great backing.

    I had a small piece of the same fabric. Fussy cut, it made a wonderful addition to an "Eye Spy" quilt I made for a toddler.
