I fell in love with this line by Michael Miller

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!

That was my thought- it's just too pretty to cut!
Thanks, friends :)

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:
