    My BF picked this out when we were at the Quilt Show this past weekend. I want to keep the pieces of this pretty big in the quilt, so I think I am going to do 9.5 inch squares of this whole, and then squares of something else... he wants flannel on the back as well. I think this is gonna be super cozy when finished!!

    I feel the same! Cutting it will be awful! Hopefully the big squares will do it justice.

    What about using it a center panel and doing some squares around the outside...maybe log cabin or stars or something like that?

    9 patch pizazz is a book with lots of quilts designed for fabric you can't cut.

    Love the fabric ... I can't tell how large it is but how about leaving it in a giant square with a small sashing then some largish squares as another sashing then a border. Does that make any sense at all? Just trying to figure out a way to not have to cut it much.

    I like Susans idea. That fabric is awesome. I love it. I have a pattern that the focus fabric is 27 1/2 X 18 1/2 then it has blocks around it. It ends up being 40 X 49. I wanted mine bigger so I made it bigger. Its called "Sew Be IT" The main feature from 2005. The designer is Cheryl Wittmayer. If your interested I can post a picture of 1 I did.

    Here it is. I did end up putting some appliques around the outside. And this is the one I did for a wall so its the 40 x 49
