    Look what my DD brought me back from Hawaii

    My Daughter just got back and she brought me the stack of squares. They are a heavy weight of fabric like bag or aprons are made from. I am not sure what to make with these. Any suggestions????

    Oh what a nice selection of material. Looks like a Hawaiian quilt or throw to me. Would look good on my sofa in the sun room!

    How about a bag for each of you! You can of course also use it to make a throw, but wouldn't it be nice if you could also give her something to remind her of her trip

    I thought about making a bag for each of us. She said what ever I decide to do, to make her the same with it. There is plenty...

    Firstly you would stoke and love them and then whatever you make will be fabulous with those vibrant colours.

    MAKE A QUILT WITH RECTANGULAR pieces......you can1- stagger each row, 2-add a plain color or black every other one. just tie it, like for a picnic, camping, etc.

    That is an idea that I didn't think of. Nice and heavy for a picnic quilt might be the ticket.

    I would cut some of the squares into triangles, and make a nine patch with the triangles in all four corners. Then make a couple of totes, if you are a quilter, you can use a solid color out of your stash for the straps. The fabric she brought back to you is very bright and beautiful. I hope you will show the pictures when you finish, whatever you decide to make.

    Large enough for pillows? I love Hawaiian prints, and throw pillows go about anywhere. A heavier fabric will mean washable more often.

    Purses, a vest, placemats, mug rugs, table runners! Even grocery bags... you'll be the hit of the checkout line!! (Here in my area of California, and soon to affect the whole state, plastic bags are banned and paper sacks are 10 cents each!)
