    Use them as the 4 corners of a D9P? Would have to watch orientation of blocks as you put them together to be sure they end up right side up!

    I would do a regular checkerboard and pick a coordinating fabric to alternate with those.

    I like the Disappearing 9 patch idea but I wouldn't want to have to pay attention to the orientations. But of course I'm not the one making the quilt :)

    Could Alternate w/9 patch using light shown and one other, so will look like all are framed in a chain :)
    Whatever you do those will be cute all put together !!

    I saw this today when I was looking for D9P ideas. It is very cute with hearts. I am not sure if I linked it correctly though.

    I would do a wonky log cabin. Since the hearts are offset a little wonky blocks around them would look good.

    Perhaps border each of them, then make another block pattern for every other square. Cute blocks, thanks for sharing!

    They'd be really cute in valentine's day projects :) Table toppers, bags, lap quilt etc.

    I like your own idea of placing in the center of a star block

    thanks for all the ideas! i went and got half yards of fabric today...purples and pinks.

    i am thinking of doing it wonky..i will do an on line search for a free pattern.

    this way i can make the blocks as big as i want. 7" is so small! may bring them out to 10 inches. we will see what the first one looks like, then decide on the size.
    Thanks again for all the great ideas! Kim

    Put a pastel sashing around them,add a 6 inch pastel border and make a baby girl quilt for a gift.

    I was just looking at the pictures of the Warm Wishes quilts and I think they'd be cute in that pattern.
