    I made wedding invitations for a friend and laid the bottom half on the table to dry. Can you see what came to mind when you look at this altogether? I think this could be a pattern for a quilt. Now just to figure out the material. It's amazing where ideas come from.

    Print your own fabric of that pattern, as you would for labels ... and make that quilt!

    Maybe not a full quilt, but a table topper? runner? wall hanging? for the Bride would be a nice keepsake. You could even print the invitation and include it.

    I stamped these. Do you think if I stamped the pattern on white cloth and then put blocks together it would work? Or should I try to find some type of fabric like this?

    You could upload the stamped image to spoonflower.com and they will print the design on fabric for you.

    My suggestion was thinking about how you print onto fabric thru your computer printer.

    You could inquire about your stamps ... would they set in the fabric? Would they be washable? or just a lot of work and wouldn't last?

    Looks like a log cabin, barn raising pattern. I love the idea of stamping the pattern on white cloth snd think it will work just fine!
