Depending on the size, I would look at examples of quilt patterns using panels:

There is a book "Big Print Patchwork" by Sandy Turner that has some fabulous ideas for incorporating large prints into a quilt. On Amazon, you can actually see some of the ideas. I have a couple of large print fabrics that I'm really anxious to try with these methods.

Here's a free panel type pattern from Hoffman's site. Colors might work well and just replace the big blocks with the horse fabric?

I would suggest a couple of books.
Panel Play by Barbara Becker or
Clever Quilts Making the most of Panels, Borders and theme prints

couple of Christmases ago I had a wonderful horse panel--4 pictures total that I made into a lap quilt/wall hanging for my daughter by cutting pictures apart and then using Marti Michell's rulers that allow you to make a wide sashing with star cornerstones, plus a couple of borders. I turned out really well and I quilted it like the pictures where an applique and it really highlighted the pictures.

Love yours!

I have a similar kit, which cuts the horse prints in horizontal panels, and then appliques fence posts and rails across it. It is beautiful, and shows off the western fabrics.
