    I bought these and the fringe is throwing me off. I could cut the fringe off, but that's alot of cutting. It is not long enough to knot together, and besides I don't want to do that anyway.

    I am open to suggestions. Please help.

    They're used to make rag quilts. Do a search for rag quilts, and you will see lots and lots of examples of how these are used. The ones you have are simply precut for you already. I included one link for you:

    I just question what happened to the corners? You're supposed to leave them on and clip them after sewing, to mimic the other fringe. Odd.
