    Ideas to use this fabric ? Please !

    I've had this peacock fabric in my stash for about 6 months or so .. I cannot think of a pattern to bring it to life and do justice to it .. Any ideas ?
    The peacock pattern is about 3inches wide in print ..
    I want to use the fabrics that are with it if possible .. I also have some plain stock white fabric ..

      Beautiful fabric! I went to Pinterest and typed in "peacock quilts" and came up with the following page. Maybe scrolling through the pictures will inspire you!

        You didn't say how much you have, but if you have enough, a stack and whack might be really nice.

          I really like the Sidelights pattern if you have a large piece of fabric you want to focus on. Here are a couple samples:

                I think something like a disappearing nine patch would be good. I would not use that light fabric but replace it with a solid or tone on tone brown that matches the brown in the peacock fabric. Use the peacock fabric in the four corners of the nine patch and the blue for the center square with the brown on the sides so that they can accent better.
