We all have that one piece of material in our stash that we've had forever and don't think we'll ever be able to cut. Well, this is mine. I have two yards of it and don't know if I'll ever be able to cut even the smallest piece of this one,

Wow it is beautiful! I am a sucker for florals. Green and Gold tone on tones especially. You could always frame a piece..

Don't cut it, use it for a backing!

I recently saw a quilt where the entire center was one large piece of material, about 36x42,(could be made 42x42 also) and then a sashing, and then some complimentary blocks. It would be perfect for any material that you just can't bear to cut up. I just can't remember where I saw it.
