    This would be a great way to "remember" quilts you have made. Make one more block. I was making pot holders from the extra block but the kitchen is full. Now I can move on to canvas for the sewing room!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.

    Love this idea. I've seen similar ones using foam core board, but i think this would be nicer/easier to hang.

    Love this idea. Thanks for sharing. I do have some extra blocks and these would look great in the sewing rooms. I had thought of painting various quilt patterns onto canvas but I like using the extra blocks so much more.

    Thanks Ditter. I've been thinking of doing some blocks and framing them. This is another good idea.

    That is an awesome idea. Better Homes and Garden have a site for this type of art also, but their's is with whole cloth (which is how I did my bathroom pictures). Thanks for sharing.

    I've done this before. Bought 4 12" cork tiles and attached blocks to them. Hung them on the wall and used them to to display pics of the fur babies. When I moved, I meant to replace them with different blocks but have yet to do it.
    Never outsmart your common sense.

    My granddaughter is a Saints fan so I covered a canvas w/Saints fabric...Came out okay, but this is a fantastic idea for a grouping. Thanks.
