    What should I do?

    My sweet dear son just returned from India. He brought me 2 pieces of the most beautiful brocade type fabric. Problem is it's not for quilts, that's for sure. I graciously accepted it, but what do I do with it? Couldn't sleep last night with ideas going through my head; none of them any good! Any ideas? Thanks gang.

    Pillows - jacket - purse - is it a soft and flowing fabric or sort of stiff and how much did he give you? If it is soft and flowing a nice shirt or a scarf.

    Make a table runner or table topper to show it off and let him know that you appreciate it.

    Where am I? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    I just started reading a book on making cathedral windows. What about a cathedral window with using your fabric as the "windows"?
