Forgive the unintended pun...I have some orphan blox I thought to make into single wall hangings and I dont want them to remain square. I thought to make borders of different sizes but would that look right? What do you do?

I like to draw it out on paper, and try different looks.
It is what YOU like the looks of that matters most :wink::D:D

Ditto, plus maybe there are 2 or 4 that can be put together into a small wallhanging.

I had quilter's block and fear at the beginning of Jan. Then I went in, picked up a piece of fabric and just cut it. I decided to attempt a wall hanging just to see if I could still quilt - that's how bad my fear was. I made a wall hanging, too it to work before it was done to show it off ---- and sold it! Never give up.
