    I would make a wall hanging, or frame them as is and display them prominently in my home. They would be way to precious for me to put them in a quilt that would get washed, I'd be too worried about the inks fading.

    What a wonderful idea and gift this is!

    Another great idea. I've saved some of my son's drawings and plan to do this with them.

    I'm looking again at the cute owl, is that on fabric? Did he paint them? If so them just stitch around each piece with coordinating thread color and use the blocks in a quilt, if the paint fades no big deal, you will still see his art work bordered with your thread. Will be super cute!!!

    What a great idea! I would do a wall hanging, his 4 hands, and make one of your hand too and add it! Perfect memory to be handed down. (Hee Hee, handed down)

    the BQ quilt patters is a great one for highlighting large designs - you didn't say how big they are...but with four blocks you could make a wall hanging as several have mentioned or add more for lap quilt. There are three BQ patterns - I'm talking about the one without the number, which wwas actually BQ1.

    I love it. That is something to be treasured and I agree with the wall hanging suggestion. How precious!

    I also would go have some color photo copies made, laminate them and use them as place mats. They are beyond cute.
