What cute fabric! You could alternate a square of this fabric with a four patch of two colors. I did something like that once. Let me see if I can find a picture. Okay, the only picture I have also is almost completely covered by my large cat, but maybe it could spark an idea for you.

beautiful fabric, and I agree with Dina, it will show off the fabs perfectly. I do the 4 patch for babies, not to fussy and shows of the fabric fantastically.

Adorable fabric! I would pick up on the red, green and blue for the additional colors.

I love it. I'd really be tempted to fussy cut the Dumbo's & put them into a modified chevron to make it like a row of elephants flying up & down. You could fussy cut the word "Dumbo", too. So many choices, so little time!

I agree that primary colors would be the cutest. You could also use the 4-5 shades of blue & blue-grey for a more sophisticated colorway.

It'll be great in primary colors. After that, my brain said, "Which ones?" and answered back, "Darned if i know."

I would look for patterns that have a larger square blocks so you won't lose too much of this cute fabric.
