    the flower head idea makes a really pretty quilt. i have a quilt top made by my grandmother from 30's or 40's not sure but i went to live with her in the early 50's and she was no longer making quilt tops then. but the top she made has dresden plate blocks with brown circle in middle of plates and a long stem. i have never seen another like it and your comment is the first time i have seen someone else come up with the idea. i don't know if gramma got the idea from a friend or if it was her idea. she was a very fun & imaginative sewer...my favorite thing she did was to make a shirt for me with every piece of the garment a different fabric...like a "joseph's coat".

    They are beautiful. I would starch them and maybe make a lining for the underside with pellon iron on glue like they use for applique. You could make table scarves from some of them, the flowers especially, even coasters from the small ones. I bet they would sell like crazy on Ebay, Etsy or somewhere like that or they would make very elegant presents also.

    I have made them into hotpads and trivets and coasters.
    Here are some I made to put on my webite and maybe Ebay. I haven't gotten them on there yet.

    They are so pretty Rhonda, as others have said there are numerous ways to use them. Thank you for showing them, you have given me an ideal way to use some pretty fabrics of my own. You do so many wonderful projects as do so many of the ladies and gentlemen on the board. I am in awe of the talent of you all. Nannajen
