    what about cutting up between the chili's and making a hanging banner to use outside when you BBQ or have gatherings. By cutting between the chili's and finishing the edges, sort of crinolin style, or even by backing with something, it could flutter in the wind. It could be brought in so it would not fade inbetween.

    I love the fabric. Maybe fussy cut it for fan or dresden plate blocks, might get some great mirror images.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.
