    What would you do with this?

    While looking for fabric, I stumbled across this. I'm so intrigued. What would you do with this (in quilting, of course)?

    My first thought also. Perfect fabric for background for applique!

    I am thinking it would make a nice background fabric for a landscape quilt.

    Its very pretty - I was thinking - pillowcase - I love to make pretty or cute pillowcases to dress up a bed - I also think that it would look great on a landscape quilt.

    If not a landscape quilt, then applique it on a floral trellis quilt. In and amongst morning glories would be beautiful!

    I first thought it would make a nice border on a simple floral quilt. Second thought was it would be lovely simple gathered curtains for a window (cafe style) with a nice quilted floral valance....great fabric.

    Depending on the direction of the pattern I would use this beauty as a border on a garden style quilt. Love it, TFS.

    I saw someone use it for a border. But like the applique idea better.

    Wow, that's really great material. My first thought was drapes for a utility room (where my washer and dryer are) to liven it up a bit. But I know it would make a great landscape piece with possibly mountains set far back. Would be cute for small applique animals like small rabbits, butterflies, birds, and cute mice intermixed. That would be really hard to decide. I can't wait to see what you make out of it!

    It would look good in a landscape quilt but I would use it for an appliqué wallhanging. The fabric reminds me of hollyhocks. I can see the fabric used around the appliqué of an old English style cottage with a thatched roof. Great fabric!

    I would use it behind one of the laser-cut applique stencils (like frames or windows). This is one website, but there are many others that sell these. Someday, I'm going to make one!

    So many ideas...hummmmmmmmm - a landscape quilt, a base for applique, a wonderful wide border on a soft -colored quilt top. It's just a delicious piece of fabric. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!
