Their website is www.quilthaus.com. The owner, Deanne, is the one that designed this pattern.
    i love this quilt.. great way to use a panel or something you don't want to cut too much.. i just ordered this pattern thanks to you.. wish you could get some store credit for that !...
    Glad you like the pattern! You're the second one to order it in the last 2 days. Store credit would be nice...lol!

    Love the fabric. Where do you go in Moline to make pillow cases? I live in Rock Island and I might be interested in helping out with the project.

    Oh I'd hate to cut into it, but if you could do panels and pick up the colors in the borders. Oh, I don't know what I'd do. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    I would probably add just borders..But...

    If you look at the first picture there is a visable line where you could make 4 strips without losing the design. Then put sashing that has the jewel tonesbetween each row and then the boarder. Want to see what you do!!

    Make a really great top using the colors in the Egyptian fabric, maybe an ancient tile pattern, then use the Egyptian fabric for backing. Be sure to display and use the quilt where the backing will always be noticed.

    Or send it to me. Ha ha.

    WOW! I'd love to have that fabric! Where did your friend get it? I'd hate to cut it up but if you choose to, it might make a beautiful One Block Wonder. The colors are amazing! But be sure to save some of it to trim the quilt!! Lucky you!

    I think I would make a kaleido quilt and then back it with this fabric, so either side I was looking at something awesome.

    I agree...it's just too beautiful to cut into.

    Use it as the backing of a great Egyptian inspired top.

    Don't cut it up! Build a quilt around it! I made a quilt for my nephew, my Hubster loved the fabric and didn't want me to cut it up...so I didn't! :) That fabric is BEE-UTIFUL!

    I used "Just Can't Cut It" for some fabric I couldn't cut up. I think its from All Washed Up. And I'm doing "Blooms" from Calico Printworks for some large print I can't bear to cut into pieces! Good luck, its really great fabric.

    It's magnificent material. I'd be doing wide borders with some of it fussy cut as centre panels for the blocks within the quilt. I would try to keep the blocks in the decorative style of the Egyptian period as well. For example, radiating lotus paterns like the top of their columns in the hypostyle halls or actually have them looking like they were hieroglyphs on certain sections. You have a challenge - good luck with it.
