I bought them on ebay...and I found another print that matches well. So--what would do with a bunch (but not THAT many) 4" squares? Nine patch table runner?

Table runners would be nice.
Placemats?
Coasters?
One BIG quilt?

Well Karla, that would make 18 - four patches (to finish at 7.5"), if you alternated them with that other fabric, it would make a 45" square. That would be a nice lap blanket, say for a wheel chair, or a baby blanket.
But, please remember that I am Mare Stare :shock: sleep deprived right now & double-check that math! LOL

I had some charm squares that were 5" and I put them together with a tone on tone that matched them and made a tote bag. My quilting group thought it was neat. The also could be used for placemats. Marge

make suduko quilts
each block is 9 squares
divided by black borders,

but this would work
then big black borders around and maybe a pieced border of
scrappy stripes???

No decisions yet. I have 4 more days of school next week, then spend Friday at a college with my daughter... I'm exhausted. I went to bed at 9:30 last night! :shock: BUT!!!! :!: :!: :!: after next week, for the first time in 21 years, I'll be home all summer, during the day, alone. I'll be in the barn and in my sewing room for 2 months.

OH--the CW fabric is starting to arrive--I can't wait to get started on that!!!
