    If you'd post some pictures, it'd give us a sense of what you might do.

    For example, if they are flowery and soft .... they'd be calling for something totally different than if let's say they were wild animals in a forest.


    My first thoughts are .... why change their shape? Work with the rectangles and build from there!

    cut them down to 6.5 and use the 1.5" strips somewhere else in the quilt?
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Never outsmart your common sense.
