    Use it as the center strip/band and coordinate for the rest of the pieces.
    I like this idea the best, then put any leftovers in the border or on the back...

    please don't cut it. use it as a center panel. you lose so much when fussy cutting and it looks like a half yard at most

    I was fortunate enough to have been given 25 or so FQ of a line of Moda fabrics called Sweet Pea. It is all juvenile prints in pink. blue and green. I sat on the shelf for almost a year before I found a pattern to use the fabrics in. A pattern by Henry Glass using 4 patches and applique. Like someone else said, it will come to you. But do consider fussy cutting the piece and teaming it up with an alternate block of a matching color or colors. Most of all have fun!

    I agree with giving it some time. When I have a fabric I love and can't figure out what to do with it, I leave it out where I can see and touch it and sooner or later it tells me what to use it for

    That was my first thought. Use this piece as your center focal point, and build some other squares or borders around it either for a wall hanging or a little lap quilt. Very sweet fabric!

    I agree just keep thinking and looking at it and then it will hit you just how to use. Make sure we see the finished quilt.

    Could you cut the fabric into some same size peices, and the sew them together length wise.
    Use that as a center panel, and then build a border around it.
    Just a thought, good luck, let us see what you come up with.

    I agree with so many of the others. Sleep on it! Think about it and ponder carefully. I would suggest using it as the centerpiece like a medallion at the center with coordinating colors and fabrics framing it. It is difficult to fussy cut such a cute fabric and get the complete picture. Good luck!

    I agree with Estan. This is such sweet fabric and I couldn't possibly cut it into tiny pieces...
