    I had lots of these swatches. They can be made into one of a kind place mats or fancy
    mug rugs. cut up into 10 inch squares and made into a beautiful quilt.

    how about some little Clutch Purses, or small zipper bags/lined. Mini Totes . Pincushions with some of the more odd prints. Little bags with fold over top- fastened with Velcro to hold make up or purse organizer. some of the more ornate fabric could have a crocheted Edging and used for doilies.... under lamps or favorite pieces of Glass ware...
    Friend who can share your laughter and tears are the only ones you need.

    [QUOTE=4EVERquilt;5329663]each piece is 13 1/2" x 8 1/2". very pretty prints. I don't know what to make with them. Some nice lady at a yard sale gave them to me.[/QUOTE

    They would make beautiful purses.

    I have 3 boxes of this fabric too. I have made some chicken pincushions with it. I did get it to make small purses but I just end up buying more and not making much with it

    Lady in the Guild has made nice totes with samples like that. She used just simple 4" patches in a 4 x 5 layout but you can make them any size.
