If it does bleed, give it another go in the tub and check to see if any colours are bleeding into the cream. If it is good, then dry it.
    I would then use it like wholecloth panel, sandwich and quilt around the different patterns in the panel.
    I totally agree with Tartan. This would be the best way for this panel.

    I love the fabric! so much that I couldn't cut it up! What I would do with it is: Take it to Micheals and get it framed, then hang it wherever you can get the most enjoyment out of looking at it.

    I did that with a large linen towel I bought in Italy several years ago. It's gorgeous, gets compliments from guest, and reminds me of a great vacation.

    The fabric is absolutely gorgeous. It would make a wonderful wall hanging. Use Color Catcher sheets when washing the fabric as these do work if the red bleeds a bit.

    I agree with the others that suggest you check it for color fastness, then put it together with batting & a backing & then outline the design with quilting. It is beautiful fabric. Hope it works out for you.

    Please do not cut that gorgeous fabric! Is dry cleaning even an option?

    I would be tempted to just use them as a shawl. They are gorgeous!
