    too many UFO'S

    I am still cleaning and sorting and still finding partial projects.I just found these.My grand daughter has Chrohn's disease and every 6-7 weeks we spend the day with her getting her treatments so I take hand work along.I thought this was a cool shape,cut them and put them away.I just found them-now placemats,mug rugs ,wall hanging-what to do with them.All ideas welcome.

    I like so many of the ideas I saw. A mod quilt with blocks and sashing or arranged on a solid background. Too many choices. I always say every quilt has it's time.

    I would applique them to a white or off white background fabric and make a quilt.

    I would applique them on a quilt and use jumbo rick rack as the stem and add some leaves and you would have a cheery quilt or wall hanging. Maybe put a yoyo in the center of the flower to add some dimension.
