Stumbled across this fabric at favoritefabric.com (while looking for something else, of course). It's so yummy. But I'm not sure what I'd *do* with it. What would YOU do with it?

Well, the fabric doesn't do anything for me, so I'd probably leave it in the store! Having said that, I've seen some of our friends on the board make quilts of beauty using fabrics I don't like. It's all in what you do with it!

I'd use it as a border on a quilt and find co-ordinating fabrics for the blocks. I think it is pretty.

I would also use it for a border and find a pattern that uses batiks.
