Bird, Butterfly, & Flower Fabric

When we were at Joann's Fabric and Craft Store a couple of weeks ago
to get Victoria's Sizzix Big Shot and the fabric for the Eureka quilt,
Larry spotted this fabric, pulled the bolt from the rack,
and put it in the cart.
"That doesn't match," I said.
"But it's exactly what you need!" he informed me.
I took another look at it.
It's covered with beautiful pictures or paintings of
chickadees, indigo buntings, American goldfinches, Carolina wrens,
monarch butterflies, purple coneflowers, zinnias, morning glories,
fuchsia, yellow coneflowers, lilacs, tall phlox, blue jays, ...
You know, he's right:  It IS exactly what I need!!
I bought the entire bolt.  (But there were only 1 ½ yards.)  It's 100% cotton. 
The question is, What do I need it FOR?
I would welcome any suggestions anybody has to give
as to what in the world to make out of this fabric. 
I might turn my nose up and refuse to follow said suggestions,
but I welcome them, nonetheless!     

    Here's a shot with my rotary cutter on the fabric, for size perspective:

And now a set of close-ups:

Sooo. . . what shall I make out of it???
