I have a piece of yardage that was "gifted" to me (read neighbor was cleaning out her crafting area and decided to give me all the scraps she knew she'd never use). I truly wish I could post a pic, but I can't. Anyway, it's something called "Sassy Princess", a directional stripe, in BRIGHT orange, yellow, a bit of lime green in the yellow, and has little girls and green butterflies in it. The stripes are roughly 1&1/4 inches wide. I have about four yards of this garishly cute stuff.

What would you do with it? I appreciate all suggestions and ideas very much!

That fabric is so cute...
how about cutting 5'' squares then alternating with solid squares of the colors that are in the fabric. Would make a nice rainbow look. That would still leave plenty for the back and maybe a matching pillowcase.

tube quilt comes to my mind. Anything with strips looks good.
