    Ok, this is my first time to post, so if I mess up, just excuse the newbie! I purchased a quilted Christmas panel for a tree skirt. I made the tree skirt last year and it turned out great. My question: On the excess fabric there are 8 beautiful color angels of different sizes on a white background with stars. There were no instructions at all as to what these were for. Does anyone have an idea? They are too pretty to just throw away but I certainly don't know what to do with them!!

    Christmas Post Cards. They can be mailed. There are several books that show how and are quick and easy.

    Make a wall hanging or a table runner for your dining or coffee table.

    This post is in the classifieds -

    Are you wanting to sell the scraps?

    Or wanting ideas for how to use them yourself?

    In either case, a photo or scan of them would be helpful.

    I've often wondered that myself. Now I know what I'd do. Thanks.

    I usually put in my scraps and either cut squares with the leftovers or strips. Have bins with all sizes of squares and loads of 2 1/2" strips. When I am in the mood, dig into these bins and make scrap quilts.

    I don't know the size of the pieces, but it maybe panel sections could be used in an attic windows item.

    Use them on the borders of a Christmas quilt, or on the backing just 'for pretty'. Applique them or if there is enough room around them to cut into squares or rectangles, use them as a block in a christmas quilt or on the back.

    many different ways to use them as you've seen from the responses.

    Have fun with them. I think they were supposed to be appliqued to the skirt, but could be used as ornaments, or appliqued onto many different items, it; pot holders, table runners, place mats, etc. Let your imagination run

    The ornaments on the Nancy Halverson Advent Calendar are made by bonding the design to either felt or wool. Then they are cut out (again). Then hot glue a loop hanger (a 2" piece of crochet cotton) on the back. This would probably work with your left overs.

    I would say applique then on a soft pastel color or on black and make a table runner with them. If they go on the tree skirt, applique them on to it. I think a table runner would be beautiful.

    How about a table runner with other (pieced) blocks in between the angels? That would be very nice, I think.
