When traveling I tend to buy fabrics....and have a ton of very busy sarong/type batiks from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. I have seen individual prints made into table napkins (beaded) - this fabric BEGS for beading!, but I was wondering if there are any other ideas out there with to do with all these individual printed 1-2 yard pieces. Is there a quilt I can make that would do these justice?

I love them too, yes, you can box them up and send them to me :lol:

Off the top of my head, I can't think of anything, maybe a bento box?

Shadowbox or DP9 both can use large pieces of fabric. Those are gorgeous fabrics!

I think the last two would make great Stack & Whack or OBW if there is enough repeats. You can do 5 bladed fans or 4 section triangle squares in stack and whacks.

I agree about the OBW or even better just mail them to me would be even better.

It would make beautiful stained glass quilts or small one block wonder wall hangings or table runners.

So so pretty! I agree, I think these paired with some sharp solids would make an awesome Bento Box!! :)

Cheers!
