    I thought it was too cute to pass up in the 50% off bin. But now what? I was thinking of fussy cutting the cows but then what?

    You could fussy cut for sure but even whacked up it is a nice color splash for sashing etc. Great in one of the kids quilts that everyone is posting, a fun fabric to be sure.

    I would have bought it too, Too fun to pass up. It would make a great baby quilt. Fussy cut just a straight four patch! Add blue for a boy or pink for a girl.

    Just set the fabric aside for a day or two, they will tell you what they want to be. Give them time. They aren't used to their new home yet.
