    Those are too pretty not to use them. I agree, a pinwheel quilt would be beautiful.

    make a hunters star or pinwheels out of them. i bet that you could just sew them all together randomly too. that would be really cool. almost like a scrappy quilt but with triangles.

    A flag. Sew like-colored triangles together side-to-side, alternating directions, to get rows of each color. Then use the red & white for stripes and stack the blues for the star field. A great scrappy American flag.

    Ah Bea Sew Happy, you took the words out of my mouth.I thought a scrappy flag would be perfect, with maybe applique star on the blue feild.

    I would make them all HSTs and then sew them making diamonds (kind of like the around the world quilt) hope you know what I mean... I've been looking into making one of those.

    I'm finishing a Boxy Stars quilt and had lots of little triangles. I sewed opposite colors together and chained them into long stipes for the border. It is bring out all the colors in the quilt but only about an inch to inch and a half wide. None left!

    I would have to pick one of Ranger's ideas for the HST's. Start laying them out and see what you get. I did a Zig Zag with my HST's and love the turnout. But, then, I am not a pinwheel fan. I like the quilt to be on the wild side.

    Since they're red, white and blue I might play with them a bit to see how you might make them to look like fireworks and put sew them down. You could even have raw edge applique.

    Another idea, a friend of mine collected the extras from everybody and made a beautiful butterfly quilt out of them. She used them as the wings.

    Okay, please explain what lenders and enders are to an old lady. I have been quilting since the 70's but must not get out enough.

    What would you do with them?

    In case the colors don't show very well, they are red, white and blues. There is one off-white print.
    Make into pinwheel blocks

    My first thought was pinwheels, then the Radiant Star.
