Default pattern suggestions?

I got a couple of these Alexander Henry Folklorio panels to make my boyfriend an anniversary present. I was thinking of a wall quilt but I could use suggestions for a pattern that will make the most of these great "cards." Any ideas?alhefocamabr.jpg

Going to see who comes up with what. I have no clue. Great cards btw. Sorry. Maybe a sampler or I see checkered tile in the bottom right corner. wedding ring in top right, brick in third top row. 4th row hexagon representing the soccer player. Fan in #6, (2nd row). Right now that's all I got. Sometimes take your cue from the cards.

Maybe an attic window or a shadow box?

Great idea-----------------and not too time consuming.

I'll look for some patterns, thanks. I might also go for an asymmetrical sort of thing with sashing.

I love asymmetrical quilts and you could do that with shadow box. Think that would look great.

How about that Postcard quilt . I think the postcard one was posted on QB with Alaska panels it kind of looks like a folded screen effect? Or there is another pattern that looks like a film strip?

I can't quite picture what you're describing - I'll look around.

I tried to search too and couldn't find it. I did find the pattern called film strip and it might work. It is the one with squares of fabric surrounded by little coloured squares. You could set your rectangles in black with little white squares?
