    Any help is appreciated, please!

    I got these blocks from a festival last year. Got these 9 blocks and these very large one. Not sure what to do with it and the lay out. Any suggestions?

    What is wrong with just making a sampler quilt with sashing and cornerstones?

    different size blocks perhaps put small flying geese strips to make them the same size blocks for sashing. Small pinwheels or trees

    Guess that is what I will end up doing, I just didn't know where the large 20" square one fit in this quilt.
    Why the large square? Guess that is what happens to abandoned UFO'S

    Can you cut down the 20" block to make it the same size as the others? Try just folding the edges back to see what it would look like. Then I would sash everything in white.

    Putting the large block on the back of the quilt, what a good idea.

    I like that idea, then I can use all the blocks these lady (unknown) made. Thanks for the idea.

    Wow, some great ideas. I feel better with all these suggestions. I wanted to use all the blocks if I could. I will post when I get these antique blocks quilted.

    I like the idea of using the large one for a pillow. The back of a quilt is not seen very often.

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    My daughter has requested that I make her quilted placemats for Christmas.
    She wants each mat to have different blocks, colors, etc.
    If you didn't really want a quilt, maybe you could use your blocks for something like this.
