    This is one of the "feature prints" from a new group by Windham called "Tavern Signs". Most of the prints are smaller-scale historical type prints, but this one caught my eye. However, I don't know what you could do with it.

    Any ideas?

    If you have a breakfast nook or table in your kitchen, how about place mats.

    Could work into a wallhanging or lap quilt for the "man cave" (what my DSIL calls his basement)

    The first thing that came to my mind ... four patch posies
    second ... stack n whack (kaleidoscope).

    It's surprising when you layer your fabric, then cut . . . sometime it's unbelievable the way they turn out.

    Good luck

    It is great fabric for a man's quilt. I would fussy cut the tavern signs and put them in blocks.

    Place mats, runner, coasters, or easiest of all -- put a piece in a frame behind glass as if it were a print. It's really nice fabric.

    Use as the center of a lap quilt or wall hanging, add a 2 inch boarder of black this will say lool at me. Then use a 4 to 6 inch boarder in the blue or red to sew design of wine glassess and bottles in and close with the binding in black. Good luck

    You could make a valance for the den. Or do what we call an EasyBreezy quilt.
    Take the whole piece of fabric, Border with complimenting colors in a piano keyboard border.

    Do have a bar area that you use for coctails ....If so I would fussy cut some and maybe some you could size it and frame.. This would be great art work for that area and may create great conversaions

    Just a though

    I think framing some would be great, then fussy cut the rest and make a quilt...throw over a chair, put the pictures near the chair and voila! A very cool corner for a fella.
