    I found these in a bag of remnants I got from Goodwill. I have no idea what they are and what you can do with them.

    They look like those panels you use to get buy the yard. You could them apart or use the whole piece. Cranston Print Works made a lot of them.

    I have some of the bottom pic blocks. I bought a yard of it to practice needlepunch embrodiery. I saw the vendors demoing this at Paducah quilt show and just had to do some.

    You could make pot holders with them, too.

    They almost look like Trichem squares.
    Anyone remember that stuff?

    I do - those tubes with the ballpoint tips that always dried up... Lots of colors, though. I haven't seen them in years.

    Oh yes I remember Trichem. Hasn't been to many years since I got rid of mine. I was not that good with them.

    I remember buying them from Hershners & Leewards catalogs. Never cared for the results.

    I just found my Trichem paints in their carrier downstairs. They still work! I am really amazed. I did lots of pillowcases with the paints. These little blocks look like something they would have carried except that the lines look really dark and may not have been covered by the paint.

    Red work designs. You can put them all together in a quilt...after you have embroidered them by hand.

    I thought that they looked like the old fashioned fabric (Kinda like muslin) that had embrodery patterns stenciled on. My mother had some that looked like them. She embrodered them -- some just the outline and others the full design.
