    Maybe something along the "Big Block" type quilt.

    I love the fabric! If you wanted fast and easy- the 10 minute quilt might work. (I think that's what they called it. ) It had a rectangle with borders :)

    With a couple of coordinating fabrics you could do this.

    Warm Wishes would be a good choice as well.

    I think I might use some bigger squares for Warm Wishes? You could also fussy cut the fans for the inner part of Drunkard's Path blocks. The fans would also be nice (in the 1/4 circle hub) in the Dresden Plate fan blocks. They would make great butterfly wings...oh the possiblities are endless!

    Beautiful fabric. Depending on how large the fans are...a disappearing nine patch with some pretty coordinating fabric to offset?? Cut carefully....
