Have you considered printed panels for a quilt? I know they are sort of a flashback to the early 1980's but the newer panels are really cute. Particularly for children's quilts. This example being hand quilted using the Big Stitch, by Pat, is one such example. When the item is to be loved, washed and loved some more the panel is just right. At the Ladies of the Cloth group we see every type and style of quilting and this is just one.
And who can resist a goat wearing overalls in a shopping cart?
*I have mixed feelings about dressing animals in clothes....does it compromise their dignity?
