I'd leave it in the store. It is just not my style of design. Don't care for oriental type, but also don't care for all the busyness of it.

I would get the book by Judy Sisneros, 9-Patch Pizzazz, and cut it up and make a beautiful wall hanging. Her theory is to choose the focus of the fabric which will be cut into the larger pieces, and the rest will then cut into smaller pieces and then pieced together. I know it sounds sacrareligious to cut this but trust me, her results are really beautiful, plus its fun to do. The colors you have in this fabric are beautiful.

I agree with Dina - I'd just quilt it. To me it is very romantic.

I would do a One Block Wonder or Stack 'n' Whack.

Just checked her books out on Amazon and they are amazing.

I would definitely NOT cut this gorgeous fabric. I would do some type of outlining/quilting around the major areas...the butterfly, swan, etc. for a framed wall hanging.

what a beautiful pattern, can you share the fabric name and company who made it?

That is gorgeous fabric!! It definitely does NOT look like Valentines fabric to me. I would use it in a quilt that requires large blocks so I can see a lot of the fabric pattern or a large border. Kaleidoscope or stack-n-whack would be pretty but I would be sure to use the fabric in the borders. Just lovely fabric. I would buy some.
