My first thought was place mats. I would love them for that in my dining room.

Attic window quilt would be gorgeous. Can't you just see them sitting outside singing for you. Please share pics when you create with these. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with making them a center piece of a block. These are really pretty.

I would cut them apart, use sashing and make a lap quilt. Lovely blocks!

You can also cut and frame them for a hallway, etc.
