    Uses for FMQ Practice Pieces and Leftover Blocks

    I've been trying to figure out what to do with some FMQ practice pieces I have laying around my sewing studio and ran across this tutorial: http://luannkessi.blogspot.com/2009/...gtutorial.html

    I'm also thinking that smaller pieces could be cut up and sewn into coasters or mug rugs.

    I'd love to hear other ideas of useful items to make from leftover quilted pieces!

    I made these this morning. I pretty much followed the tutorial linked above, but overlocked the seams to make it a little more "finished" on the inside. They are quick and easy and could be made practically any size...

    Darling! What will you use yours for? I make up little bags and then don't use them, give me some direction.

    If you have 20 inch squares you can do the easy casserole carrier. How about a case for your lap top, I pad, Nook or Kindle. Construct a thread caddy out of a pre-quilted square or a cover for your sewing machine/serger. How about one of the under the sewing machine pads with the hanging pocket edge? A case for your sunglasses for hanging in the car.
    I love your little zipper case! It looks perfect for your wallet and keys to slip out to the store.

    I love those!!!
    I have made my practice pieces into placemats, I just practice on a large piece of fabric and when I'm done, I cut it to the size I want.
