    Tried these out a number of months ago and just don't know what to do with them.
    Any ideas please? They were ment for the front of cushion covers, but i really would like to use them for something else, just not sure what.

    Cover for an applique portfolio or block case? Or line the top edges into a triangle, fill in opening and set triangles between the blocks to make a table topper. BTW, gorgeous work.

    I think making them into a wallhanging is a great idea .Because you can display them with nothing happening to them.

    Depending on size, but a wallhanging or maybe inset in a skirt or jacket.

    I vote for matting and framing them. Either all 3 diagonally or sepately.

    Wow, beautiful!!! I love the one with the rabbits.

    I'd make a wallhanging out of them. Place them horizontally, the rabbits in the middle, the one with the wren-like birds on top and the third one below the rabbits with creme-beige sashing inbetween. Maybe add another black border with green applique vines around it.

    I would go with the wallhanging for these. Great blocks.
