    scenic stripes

    I fell in love with and bought Timeless Treasures -Live Love Laugh Daisy Stripe. Now I can't find a quilt pattern that uses a scenic stripe fabric. Do you have a suggestion? Other than the table runner that uses the 60 degree triangle .

    How about doing a row by row quilt? https://www.google.com/search?q=row+...w=1277&bih=712 Maybe one of these images will help get your creative juices flowing.

      I never heard of a scenic stripe before so I googled your fabric. Boy you sure picked a hard one! No matter where you cut it, it will look chopped up. Unless you use it for borders I can't imagine how you would apply it to any quilting design or block. Sorry to sound negative here, maybe someone else will have a better idea!

        You could use it for backing, so it's not chopped up. Or you could fussy cut it all. That would be a lot of work though.

          I saw ( and purchased) the Family Rules panel that goes with this fabric. The quilt shop sample showed strips from the fabric yardage as the border around the panel. That only used a small part of the yardage, so they did a 60 degree runner to use up the other part of the fabric,. It is absolutely darling fabric, but so hard to find projects to use it most effectively. My guess is that it was designed to make home dec accessories rather than a whole quilt.

          How many repeats across the WOF are there! And how much fabric did you purchase? Would something like this work? I would miter my corners somehow.

          I am going to make a wall quilt out of my panel, and use some other fabric as the border that doesn't need so much yardage as the Daisy stripe that goes with the panel.

            This is a great idea. I found the fabric collection and I think the chalkboard words fabric that coordinates is so cute. Check out this project on the TT website.

              Some good ideas here. I like the idea of leaving it whole and adding borders. Seems a shame to consider using it for backing since it's such a pretty design. I still think it could be cut up. You only need 1/4" seams so I think the most you might lose would be some of the white squiggly and leaf designs that run between the main images. You might not even lose those if you're very careful with your cutting.https://www.fabric.com/buy/0432242/t...y-stripe-black
