    French Holiday- oh my!! So pretty but I don't have a clue how to cut this w/o ruining it.

    Wow, I love it. I wouldn't cut it all. Use it as a quilt top as it is, it doesn't need any embellishment.

    Checkout: www.mountainpeekcreations.com and you can see ideas on how to use yardage that is too pretty to cut up.

    Would be a shame to cut that up in blocks.

    You could use it like a panel and add borders around it. It is beautiful! I love Michael Miller fabrics!

    I'd do a medallian (spelling?) quilt surrounding it with borders
    1st a very thin black, then squares cut from this fabric mixed with solids that are in it; another very thin black, more squares and solids....
    No border - I really dislike borders

    Gollytwo, that sounds really pretty but you lost me on the medallion part :D

    What do you mean??? I need ideas- this fabric came and it's really nice but all mixed together I don't think it would work. I like the idea of the solids and black so clue me in on the medallion. My brain is slow today LOL

    DUH- I just looked at one - do you mean a large piece for the center, right??

    I have a better excuse- I'm watching too many baseball games :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I'd use the big print as a backing and the coordinated prints in the quilt top

    Yes large section in the center and build around it
    I know it's mean to say to a Yankee fanatic (and in the interest of good playoff games, I expect you to forgive me) - but go Devil Rays for 2 more games.
    I need them to knock the Red Sox out of contention. The Sox are too weak for the playoffs.

    I agree- the Sox are too weak for the playoffs. But when/if the Rays make it you'll still be for them and not the Yankees.
    I just can't win you over.
    Yes you are mean LOLOLOLOLOL :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I couldn't cut that lovely fabric. I would be tempted to frame some of it. It's so pretty.

    I agree use as a center panel, maybe a pieced border around it.
