    Use them as the 4 corners of a D9P? Would have to watch orientation of blocks as you put them together to be sure they end up right side up!

    I would do a regular checkerboard and pick a coordinating fabric to alternate with those.

    I like the Disappearing 9 patch idea but I wouldn't want to have to pay attention to the orientations. But of course I'm not the one making the quilt :)

    Could Alternate w/9 patch using light shown and one other, so will look like all are framed in a chain :)
    Whatever you do those will be cute all put together !!

    I saw this today when I was looking for D9P ideas. It is very cute with hearts. I am not sure if I linked it correctly though.

    I would do a wonky log cabin. Since the hearts are offset a little wonky blocks around them would look good.

    Perhaps border each of them, then make another block pattern for every other square. Cute blocks, thanks for sharing!
