    If it is large enough use it as a design wall.

    Wool felt may shrink some, be itchy if there is an allergy, and cost too much to 'waste' on a quilt back, and polyester felt will come apart very quickly with use and washing. I use it (Polyester) as batting in wall quilts, or 'art' quilts. IMHO

    Felt won't work for quilt back. It will work for "artsy"
    projects. You can make a wall hanging with it. A table runner. It's good for applique type projects. Keep in mind you will not want to wash it often, and if you do, hand wash. Lay out to dry.

    The ideas for the penny rugs have given me inspiration.

    I'm in agreement with a no. Depending upon how much you have you could make many little chicken pin cushions for gifts.
