    I bought about 16 of these beautiful tapestry samples from Italy at an estate sale. They measure about 18" each. Any ideas what do with them....besides pillows? :)

    Purses or tote bags. They are very pretty.

    I love the idea of tote bags. They would be very heavy for a quilt. Oh.....maybe a crazy quilt.

    I think they're beautiful!!! If you can't figure out something PM me I'll figure out a use for them!!! :lol:

    The first thing that came to mind was a crazy quilt!! Boy, can I see them incorporated into one. Lace, beads, buttons, maybe some silk. OOOOOH!!!

    If they are duplicates I can see a large block lap quilt

    Marsye, I agree with sewcrafty; a crazy quilt would be great. Those are so pretty and that would really show off their beauty. Or maybe something like a pinwheel block with a different color of them in each block. With the amount and size of each combined with other fabric to make a block it should make a fairly good sized quilt I would think. Let us know what you are going to do. I am anxious to see how you use them.

    If any of the designs are centered you might think about framing them....I have several pieces of tapestry that I plan to use for totes...

    How about cosmetic bags with a beautiful shiny lining??

    Or you can use two of them and make Pillows! Or piece them together and make a patchwork bag.

    All good ideas.

    Marsye-I owe you an apology. I was reading this and my DD walked down the hall towards me, saw your avatar picture again, and started giggling. I know I raised her better. Sorry if your feelings are hurt. :lol: :lol: :lol:
