    I was given this from a friend who sews but didn't know what to make so I told her I would think of something and I thought of this site! It is 36x44. Cut up for hot pads> table runner> throw. Open to suggestions. Thank you

    I would not want to cut it up, so I would probably make a lap quilt.

    I would not want to cut it up either. I would leave it just as it is, add a border maybe...

    I would just quilt around the blocks and make a border for it. Nice piece!

    It would be a great backing for another top so it would look nice either way.

    I agree with everybody else don't cut it up. Add a border or two and quilt it. It is so pretty.

    It would be a quick project to add batting, backing and quilt. You could practice FMQ if nothing else.

    I agree with everyone here. Keep it as is or use it as a backing.

    I also wouldn't cut it up. I'd quilt it as is or maybe add a border first. These are called "cheater quilts" because you cheat by not having to piece. I've found a few I really liked and used them for traveling projects. They're small enough to travel and are great for hand quilting.

    I agree with everyone. Don't cut it up. It would look great as a reversible lap quilt.
