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

    Ok everybody, I thank you all for the ideas.
    Please don't all be upset about what I decided.
    I'm sending them to Gotthebug, as a birthday gift.
    I didn't want to give any one particular person the advantage over anyone else. I do like the ideas you all posted, and I know there are a bunch of scrap users on this board....

    I wish you all a happy 4th of July weekend!

    These would be great as a 'fireworks display' - laying out pinwheels & triangles to create a fireworks type effect.

    Wow, what a wonderful pile of beaut. colors. I use these kinds of pcs. in my paper piecing. And appliques. How about floral wallhangings like the one shown on here recently. Those pcs. could be used for appliqued flowers.
    If you can't use them or give them to somebody else, I'd love to have them

    I once made a quilt and had a wastebasket full of triangles. When I looked in the basket, I knew they were too beautiful to throw out. So I made a flying geese quilt with them, and it turned out more beautiful than the original quilt!

    So beautiful that I gave it to my daughter at the blessing we had for her just before she delivered her first baby. She had it with her during labor and delivery (which wound up being a C-section). All the nurses and doctors exclaimed over it.

    Maybe a crazy quilt? I would cut a square of muslin to sew the pieces to since you have bias edges. By using the muslin as a stabilizer it will help prevent stretching. These blocks can be put together with lattice strips. This would make a great lap quilt. Happy 4th! :thumbup:

    I imagine a color themed crazy quilt - each block of a different color and pattern arangement.

    I think I would make a set of placemats and matching table runner for the 4th (maybe too late for this year) either for yourself or a gift. If you look in "Quilters World" June 2010 issue, pg 72-73, there is a simple pattern that would work. Look at the next page and if there are left over pieces, maybe make a coordinating apron. These could be whipped up in no time!
