This is the UFO I've chosen to use for my Project Ostrich center. It's from around 2000 MAYBE 2001 but no later than that. My original plan was a bed quilt of the butterflies floating in that background fabric. But since these are template pieced butterflies after doing three of them that was enough for me! But I think it will make a lovely round robin center. I have about 2-1/2 yds of that background fabric so if I'm stingy with it and only use it in every other border to tie things together I should have enough. This quilt will probably turn out fairly large since the center measures 21" across and there will be 6 rounds to add borders. But I have a king bed so if it gets really big I'll just send it out to be quilted and use it on my bed.
I'm not sure whether I'll leave the hexagon shape of if I'll square it up with the background fabric before I start adding borders. I'm leaning towards adding enough background to float the butterflies. Then maybe toward the end of the project if it calls for it I could applique a few assorted sized butterflies in those spaces or save them for some fancy quilting. It would be pretty cool to hand quilt butterflies in the big spots but since all the rest of the fabrics are batiks and that's what I'll be using for the rest of the quilt except for that background fabric I don't think I'm going to be attempting to handquilt this. Just too hard to get the needle thru the batiks.
