How big is the piece of fabric.? What do the squares measure?
2 things come to mind. If it is small 24 x 36 or such it can be used as a medallion piece. If larger cut it up and use as squares along with other blocks.

:D Very pretty. It looks like a panel. You could use it as one big piece and add borders,then quilt by stitching around each square along the inside of the lines. Do that after you have added the borders and sandwiched your batting and backing. You could make a quilt in just a few hours. Let us know what you do.

That is gorgeous! My first two thoughts were to:
A) Cut out the individual printed sqares and add a pretty border around them and then add other blocks with coordinating colors.

B) Use it as a panel.

Great buy! Keep us posted on how you choose to use it.

I'd have to cut it up and use the blocks along with coordinating blocks and sashing to make something. Its really pretty..I've seen it in person..whatever you decide, it will be pretty.
