    One of my best friends just went on vacation to Hawaii and brought me back this cute little block of Hawaiian printed fabric. They are small rectangles and there are around 4 or 5 of each print. Any suggestions? I love the prints, and I love that she not only thought of me on her vacation but thought of something i would truly appreciate. Gotta love your girlfriends right :D The prints are so bright and pretty!

    Thanks for your help,
    Carrie

    What about one of those cute little bow tucks purses or the little charm pack purses. That way you could take your friends gift wherever you go! They really are pretty!

    Very pretty! I'd square them up (get them all the same size) and add sashing, maybe cornerstones too. You could use it for a wallhanging, center of a quilt with additional Hawaiian print for borders, table runner, etc.

    LOVE your blocks!!
    you could leave them as they are and add sashing to them?
    check out some the patterns for charm squares, they seem to be similar.
    just sit back and enjoy them, the right pattern will come along.

    If you are showing all you have, I would definitely do a tote bag. Find some complementary fabrics to go with them and you could even make two - one for you and one for the friend who gave you the fabrics.

    I would bind/sash them in black. Look on line there is a pattern called Seattle Streets or Seattle Sunset and your fabrics would look beautiful in this type quilt.

    I would get some black fabric and make a lap quilt with them. If the blocks are all the same size just add sashing and borders.
